THE ASTROLOGICAL TENDENCIES FOR THE NEW YEAR
A new calendar year awaits us, the last of this decade.
Since we’ve been living with wild and turbulent collective energies for more than 10 years now, no one can be blamed for wishing for just a little peace, quiet and stability.
However, that’s not on the agenda, quite yet.
Even though 2019 is the year, where we say our final goodbyes to dramatic planet placements, such as Uranus in Aries and Uranus’ long-lasting square to Pluto, the next distinct and heavy aspect, in the shape of an applying Saturn – Pluto conjunction, literally takes over right away…
So collectively, we still have huge assignments to finish, before we can hopefully relax and simply enjoy life on Planet Earth.
Let’s take a look at the energies, we’re parting with, in the first months of the year, and then at the new ones coming in.
In November, Uranus reentered Aries (2010/11 – 2018/19) and, right on cue, the rebellious protest spirit, that has been with us since the beginning of the decade, came back in full force (strikes, “yellow vests”, as well as other protests etc.).
Then, on the first day of the new year, the Uranus – Pluto square (2008-2019: financial & debt crisis – leadership crisis – the fall/ removal/abdication of people in power- changes in power balances – reveal of corruption, abuse of power and other sinister agendas- focus on injustice, inequality and suppression – protests – uprising – riots – escalation of terror/false flags- visible climate change- extreme weather events – distinct individual life changes – a strong need for individual freedom – growth potential – awakening) is activated once again, for the very last time.
In March we say finally goodbye to both, when Uranus enters Taurus for good and Uranus – Pluto thereafter ebbs completely out.
At that point we will be able to do a status rapport on the gigantic 11 year global process of change, the square symbolized, and how far we got.
We already had a taste of some of the themes, that comes with Uranus in Taurus, in the 6 months Uranus peeked into the sign, this past year. From Spring 2019, we will go in depth with these themes, for the next 7 years.
While this Uranus placement is calmer than the previous, it’s no less revolting or invasive.
Even though it takes a lot longer to excite and enrage Taurus than Aries, there is of course the infamous red cloth, and Uranus will no doubt find that cloth and wave it provocatively in front of us, during these 7 upcoming years.
The combination will likely bring:
Financial experiments/reset/changes, that can be felt in the individual wallets – changes concerning property and ownership – focus on & changes concerning food, eating habits, nature and sustainability – potential blooming green wave; a rise in homegrown food, ecology, biodynamics, perma culture and perhaps even invention of new green methods versus sabotage of green, sustainable living and healthy food – climate change/ earth changes/ weather conditions/manipulation that changes the outcome of crops, prices and availability – possible scarceness and rationing of resources and food – invention of alternatives to something lacking or no longer available – changes in values – individual growing need for living your life according to your true values and standing firm on them.
On top of all this, we say hello and welcome to a Saturn – Pluto conjunction in Capricorn.
These two will meet in early 2020, will reach the critical one degree in late 2019, but will already get so close, in January 2019, that the influence will be felt from then on and the entire year.
The Saturn - Pluto combination doesn’t have a good rep.
Among other things because it was active both during the beginning of the 1st (in reality before Pluto was officially discovered) and 2nd World War, (that also happened right after a Uranus – Pluto square and Uranus having left Aries for Taurus, in the 1930s), as well as on 9.11 and at the beginning of “the War on Terror” (where we had a series of Eclipses, where many are in the same spots as those we have these years surrounding Saturn and Pluto’s 2020 meeting).
It’s important to emphasize that Saturn and Pluto has also been in contact several other times without such a drastic outcome, but it’s also important to be aware of the many similarities with time periods, where really violent world events have taken place, and on the fact that this energy CAN be (ab)used this way, if those who push the buttons, wants to and are allowed to do so.
If anyone in position of power should wish to introduce a total police/military state, then this combination in Saturn’s own sign, Capricorn, could also be (ab)used to take further steps in that direction or for that matter, going all the way…
So no, the bad reputation is not completely unjustified, but as always; the outcome will depend on what people are willing to put up with – and then it’s about finding more constructive ways of using the energy.
With Saturn – Pluto big societal changes are inevitable.
The current structure will in many ways blow up, and many things won’t continue as before…which can be both bad and good.
The state’s, the government’s, the authorities’, as well other societal institutions powers will change distinctly – and this can both go in the way of a lot more or a lot less power.
The citizens’ rights or lack of them can also go in either direction.
The distrust of outer authorities, including both governmental and private institutions, that are considered pillars of society, will reach its absolute highest.
A lot has already suffered serious, serious blows in credibility the past years (such as media, the political system, banking system, taxation system etc. etc.), some will claim that they are already totally bankrupt creditability wise, and in its current form, it certainly won’t get any better, the next couple of years.
One societal pillar that will be especially in the spotlight, during 2019, is, due to Jupiter’s transit through Sagittarius, the justice system.
This will both concern people put on trial for deep corruption and various other sinister crimes, but also the justice system itself will be tested whether its viable, in its current form, in the future.
The organization and structure surrounding the work life and work force will also be subject to huge changes, with Pluto touching Saturn in Capricorn.
The distrust will also go the other way, from authorities towards the people, so there will be a tendency to come down hard on those who “step out of line”. Whether it’s done in a real attempt to uphold law and order or whether it’s to cling on to power and control over a population, that will have had enough…
Extreme measures of censorship, surveillance and social behavior regulation, and a very tiny individual latitude, can easily be the result, if we’re not careful.
If the steering wheel is left to others, even the most orthodox person might be very unpleasantly surprised of the world they “suddenly” find themselves in, at the beginning of the next decade.
However, both powerful individuals, powerful dynasties, well known as well as hidden, and societal institutions considered “too big to fail”, might actually fall, during this influence.
As no one from top to bottom will be safe in their seats, in this period.
Pluto’ s lesson to all of us is; nothing last forever, everything has its time, everything comes to an end, and then something new can be born.
How the new will be, is what all us present on the planet in this particular time period, is co-responsible for.
So, Pluto, is the common thread in the distinct aspects influencing us in this powerful transition period.
Pluto also squares the almost still standing Eris the upcoming year, which tells us that one or more outsider(s) could suddenly enter the field and create discord and splitting among the upper echelons of society (or those who consider themselves to be so) and turn everything upside down.
Likewise, this also tells us that we will all be confronted with important choices, that needs to be made in accordance with our individual value system...which brings us back to the Uranus in Taurus theme of the importance of living our lives from our true inner values and not from something dictated to us, from the outside.
Your values and what you’re willing and not willing to put up with, will thus be a major theme for 2019.
Within the framework of what the prevalent energies offers us, the possibilities of constructive use are:
Taking on more control and responsibility for your own life, taking on your inner authority instead of leaving it to outer authorities to set the structure for your life.
In other words, in the instances where Saturn-Pluto means more power and control to the authorities, the choice is yours, whether it’s you that takes on your authority and thus gain more power and control over your life or whether you will let outer authorities take over even more.
In the instances where Saturn – Pluto means the crash of the well-known structure of society and previous way of life, it’s your choice what you will put in its place.
Depending on perception, taking on more responsibility might feel as a heavy burden or as very liberating.
For sure, this energy places high demands on people. It’s not a time where things are served on a platter for you, there are likely privileges you will have to forego, but other things can be gained, if you’re willing to do an effort.
Neptune in Pisces reminds us not to leave behind those not capable of taking care of themselves, and since Neptune will be in a harmonious angle to Saturn (and Pluto), its actually doable; to bring everyone along, and to do something that benefits all, instead of just a few.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is in many ways the light in the dark, the uplifting energy among the more dark and heavy influences.
From here, we can rise above the current darkness, look ahead towards brighter times and find inspiration to how we will get to a better and more ethical world.
However, a Jupiter – Neptune square warns us to not be led astray by dreams and illusions, especially of the kind that promises a Messiah, aliens, angels or others to come and save us from it all.
This doesn’t exclude “outside” help, not at all, it’s just, that the prevalent energies very clearly tell us, that the responsibility is mainly ours …yours and mine.
Another warning concern believing that one’s perception of the truth is the only one viable and becoming fanatic or extreme.
If those pit falls can be avoided, then Jupiter in Sagittarius’ optimism and future orientation along with Neptune in Pisces’ compassion, spirituality and sense of unity, can be very useful tools in getting us out of this mess we’re in and in creating a better future for us all.
Jupiter remains in Sagittarius until December.
2019 brings us five Eclipses, spread over two entire Eclipse seasons and the beginning of a third.
We end the series of Eclipses on the Leo/Aquarius axis, with another Blood Moon, on January 20-21st. Aside from that powerful total Lunar Eclipse, the Eclipses will be on the Cancer/Capricorn axis and the themes, that were kickstarted last Summer, will dominate the year. More on this in the new year.
The first Eclipse season begins at the very beginning of the new year, with a partial Solar Eclipse, at the New Moon in Capricorn. on January 6th.
So no, with a Uranus- Pluto square activated again on January 1st, the beginning of an Eclipse season, in the very first week of January, and Saturn and Pluto getting noticeably close in mid-January, the new year doesn’t exactly start out quietly!
It can be frightening when much of the well-known world and societal structures (no matter how you feel about them) crashes, burns and comes to an end.
But it’s also an exciting and very unique time to be alive, with a special opportunity for being part of creating a new era, a new way of life.
This is a time of big changes that has been prophesized about for centuries, and it’s not a coincidence that you’re here on Planet Earth now.
If you’re here now, it’s because you have something to offer, a special assignment that is an important piece of the big puzzle of getting us through this major transition.
Let’s take on our individual assignments and together use the energies wisely to end this wild decade constructively and create a foundation for some fantastic 20’s for us all.
Happy New Year :-)
