ON THE EVENT:
Just as 2020 is about to end, the cosmos is gifting us with a majestic Grand Finale, an event that was not witnessed in this way in 800 years.
Jupiter and Saturn will align so closely in the night sky (close by latitude) you need to go back as far as 1226 to see something similar. This conjunction is sometimes referred to as the "Christmas Star”, as it is theorized that this bright conjunction in the sky was the eastern "Star of Bethlehem" signalling the birth of Jesus for the three Magi (astrologers). And if this is not enough of a rarity, this conjunction also falls On December 21st! Exactly when the Sun ‘stands still’ (solstice), a major turning point in the yearly cycle, ending 2020 and beginning 2021.
Jupiter and Saturn meet in the skies around every 19-20 years while completing a string of conjunctions in the same triplicity (element) in about 200 years, timing important ages in the world's history. After 200 years at which the Great Conjunction occurred almost always in earth signs, this rare and important conjunction begins a new era of 200 years in the Air Signs.
To further single out this auspicious conjunction from the other Saturn Jupiter conjunctions, is that it happens in the first degree of Aquarius, which is classically ruled by Saturn and is considered its preferred sign by traditional sources (diurnal sign). Furthermore, both Jupiter and Saturn are also enjoying triplicity rulership over the Air Signs, and as both are traditionally considered diurnal planets they are also considered in “Hayz” at the elected time, which means they have all the additional supporting conditions of their ‘Sect’ (an ancient term denoting the contrast between day and night).
This conjunction ushers powerful cosmic energy and bestows great gifts, as it has the potential to balance these two creative powers in complementary ways owing to the shared dignity and Sect (see 3 sentences before). Saturn in Aquarius expresses his airy masculine side (which modern astrologers don’t tend to talk about much) denoting practical and mental clarity, stamina and perseverance, practical thinking, bringing order and structure and deep theoretical and practical wisdom. Jupiter is a powerful life-giving energy, denoted growth, expansion, abundance, higher vision, philosophical and spiritual wisdom.
