Shift of the Ages – the Great Mutation 2020

The SHIFT OF THE AGES – the Great Mutation 2020



Jupiter and Saturn meet up at zero degrees Aquarius on Tues 22 Dec 2020 at 4.20am Queensland time (AEST)



1  The players: Saturn and Jupiter move into Aquarius

Saturn has been in his home sign of Capricorn for the last 2.5 years, a pretty serious time of it all round, although he had a brief escape to Aquarius this year – you might remember that period when the oppressive nature of Covid seem to lift?  It was when we discovered that the air was suddenly beautifully clear, people could see the Himalayas for the first time in ages, rivers and streams ran clear once again, and the world seemed to pause and reassess everything – as if to say “Wow, this is what the future could be like?” 

Saturn had moved into Aquarius, an Air Sign, and it was like a breath of fresh air in our very constricted Covid existence.  Because the planes weren’t flying, we had to fall back on our local communities and rely on local produce to feed us – this sense of community is very Aquarian, part of the energy we’re moving into now.

Saturn only stayed a few months in Aquarius before he had to return to Capricorn for the last time.  The heaviness of that return was palpable, taking people back into a more burdened state of being.

Saturn moves into Aquarius for good (well, for the next 2.5 years) on Thurs 17 Dec, and I am sure that once again we’ll feel a lifting of that hugely oppressive energy that has beset us in the last nine months.

Jupiter is hot on Saturn’s heels, moving into Aquarius on Sat 19 Dec, and chasing Saturn down – they’re due to meet for their supremely historic conjunction on Tues 22 Dec at 4.20am AEST – for most writers based in Europe and the US that is of course Mon 21 Dec.  Jupiter is never very happy in Capricorn, and moving into Aquarius will be like a breath of freedom for him.



Jupiter and Saturn join up for their historic Grand Conjunction just 8 hours after the Solstice, at zero degrees Aquarius.

This is a hugely momentous time, a real Shift of the Ages.

Jupiter and Saturn meet every 20 years, and those cycles in themselves are felt to be of huge significance in the evolution of society.

However there’s a much bigger cycle at work – the 20-year cycles fall in the same element for 240 years, and then there is a Great Mutation where the larger cycle shifts and changes element.  That is what is occurring now.  After the last 240 years of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions falling in Earth signs –  a heavy, solid, materialistic energy that spawned the Industrial Revolution and saw unprecedented exploitation of the Earth’s resources – these conjunctions are moving into the lighter, connected energy of Air signs, beginning with Aquarius. The last time we had a Great Mutation into Air signs was 1226, so you can see why it’s such a historic time.

In many ways we could argue that this shift now is the beginning of the much-heralded Age of Aquarius – there are many ways you can define that, but this would certainly be one of them (that plus Pluto moving into Aquarius in 2024, which will certainly add to the Aquarian nature of the times).  There is so much more I could say about this, about the implications for us and our lives (which I’ll go into in my Paradigm Shift webinar in January) but for now, know that this is truly a Shift of the Ages, that it’s amazing that we’re here to witness this, and that things are going to get much, much better!!!  It is so exciting!!!

Living in extraordinary times: Jupiter-Pluto conjunction

What extraordinary times we’re living in!  The intense lockdowns (however necessary) are one manifestation of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction that occurred at the start of this year, now bringing in this new era of authoritarian control. This exercise of extreme power by governments world-wide is likely to continue throughout 2020 with the Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions we’ll be experiencing three times, starting this lunar month.  The Astrology of the pandemic is absolutely fascinating and I’ve shared some in-depth analyses on my Chirone Shakti-Stargazer Astrology Facebook page, so head over there if you want to find out more! 

From a metaphysical point of view, I feel this will be a really significant turning point for the world – people and Mother Earth herself.  Fewer flights, less pollution as the factories close, they say people in China are breathing clean air and hearing bird song for the first time in a very long time.  Finally we are taking drastic measures to reduce climate change, albeit inadvertently! – we’re giving Mother Earth a break and a chance to heal.  Local community spirit is re-emerging as communities in lockdown in Europe sing and play music from their balconies, and many people are rediscovering the joys of growing their own food or finding they now have time, away from the mad rush of contemporary life, to take up creative pursuits.  It’s an opportunity for us to discover what our core values really are, and to break our dependence on the rampant consumerism that characterizes our lives (another manifestation of Uranus in Taurus).


Following on from the heavy energy of the authoritarian Saturn-Pluto conjunction in January of this year, extending the theme into extreme uses of power as I mentioned above, we have the Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions occurring three times this year in April, June and November.

Jupiter expands whatever it touches, and here it is configured with Pluto, god of the Underworld, signifying power – often hidden power – in both its light and dark forms: misuse and abuse of power when manifesting negatively, and empowerment in its positive form.

Jupiter is associated with belief systems, so we can expect the power of belief systems to be a big player in events unfolding this year, and maybe massive transformation for us all.  This is interesting in the context of COVID-19 where for example, we have the belief system of the establishment (and any covert players like big pharma) being in a very strong position of control.  The potential though, with Pluto present, is for the complete breakdown of the old belief system – and its subsequent transformation.

The first of these Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions falls on Sun 5 April at 24 Capricorn, just two degrees away from the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of 13 Jan (AEST).
