The New Age of Aquarius officially began on the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2020 when Saturn and Jupiter met up at the very first degree of the fixed Air sign of Aquarius. Saturn represents structure, karma, and accountability. Jupiter resents good fortune, opportunity, wisdom, and belief systems.
Saturn and Jupiter meet up in the sky every twenty years and usher in a new twenty year vision; however, this was the closest to the Earth that they had been in over eight hundred years. Saturn and Uranus both rule the sign of Aquarius. Uranus is the modern ruler, and it represents individuality, freedom, chaos, unpredictability, community, and groups.
Saturn and Uranus clashed three times in the sky in 2021. The first year of The Age of Aquarius had a lot of detours, setbacks, and unexpected change. Trying to construct security in a whole new paradigm is something that we are all learning to construct together.
Jupiter, the luckiest planet, recently entered the mutable water sign of Pisces on December 28, 2021, where it will tour on and off through December 20, 2022. Jupiter rules Pisces in ancient Astrology and is in its dignity. Jupiter loves being in Pisces. This is a time of expanding through diving into dreams, believing in your own imagination, and connecting to love and empathy. This is a time of magic. There is a wizard within, and it is time for you to cast your spell!
In the month of March, Jupiter and Neptune will start to dance together. Jupiter is the ancient ruler of Pisces, and Neptune is the modern. Jupiter represents the vision. Neptune represents the dream.
When Jupiter and Neptune meet up together, you can create a spark of wonder that can magnetize huge possibilities. The sky is the limit, and it is time to dream! Jupiter and Neptune get up close on April 9th, 2022. They become conjunct on April 12, 2022 at 23 degrees and 58 minutes of the mutable water sign of Pisces, which is boundless creativity. Things could feel more lost and confusing, and things could spread. Try to spread the love instead!
Venus, the planet of love, beauty, money, art, value, and desire, retrograded on December 19, 2021 at 26 degrees and 29 minutes of the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn. Venus retrograded at the degree at which Pluto had retrograded at end of April, 2021. Pluto is the planet of death, regeneration, and transformation. This is a time to purge relationships, habits, and resources that drain you. This is a time to heal the collective trauma and empower yourself. This is a time to commit to those relationships, values, and work that has meaning to you and can build your life in the long run.
Venus retrogrades once every year and a half. In our lifetime, it retrogrades in five signs. Venus retrogrades in the Cardinal Earth sign of Caricorn every eight years, and it last retrograded at approximately these degrees of Capricorn in December of 2013 and January of 2014. Venus is setting of where Saturn, which is the modern ruler of Capricorn, was transiting on and off from March 4, 2020 through November 4, 2020.
Venus and the Sun meet up every eight years in Capricorn to form what is known as a Venus Starpoint. Venus is currently retrograde. The Venus Sun starpoint happens when Venus sweeps between The Sun and The Earth and form an inferior conjunction. This is a new eight year cycle. Saturn rules the Cardinal sign of Capricorn, and it is a planet of responsiblity, accountability, and karma.
What do you want to work for in your life? What are the relationships you want to grow? What are you main aspirations? With Jupiter currently in the sign of Pisces at the very early degrees, this is a time of surrendering disbelief and meditating with intention.
Jupiter is still currently stirring the North Node of Karma, which is at the very early degrees of the mutable air sign of Gemini. A lot of fated and fortuitous connections can occur through networking, brainstorming, and communication of all forms.
The Venus/Sun Starpoint becomes exact on January 8, 2022 at 7:48 pm EST at 18 degrees of the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn. This triggers where Saturn was transiting on and off from March of 2019 through December of 2019. This also sets of where Pluto, the planet of elimation and empowerment, was transiting on and off from February of 2017 through end of October of 2018.
If there were goals you were not able to achieve at that time, this allows you to a chance to review your plan of action — especially since Venus is retrograde. Whenever Venus is retrograde, it is an ideal time to reassess, reconsider, readdress, reevaluate, and reconnect.
Make sure to find time on January 8, 2022 to do a ritual that speaks to you to help you launch a new eight year dream of what you want, and what you love. Burn sage or palo santo, work with Clear quartz points, clear out clutter, light your candles, burn incense, take a walk in nature, and do whatever helps you believe in enchanted journeys.
