The higher mind Uranus must be met with the emotional depths Pluto for change to occur in integrated ways, in both higher and lower realms. If such an integration is lacking, change may be destructive or ineffective. The Uranus—Pluto square instigated social change on a worldwide scale.
The intensity of these influences has kept us in a continual transitional state, without the luxury of holding onto security. Those who did not take the risk to upgrade or transform dynamics in their lives were often confronted with crises.
Since this transit was an opening square angle, it is important to refer back to the original conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in —66, and realize that this was also a time of social unrest and accelerated development: The civil rights movement was peaking, and sexual freedom was being advocated. Now, 45 years later at the square, similar dynamics have surfaced, as seen for example in the greater awareness of the police brutality inflicted upon black people in the United States, and in gay marriage gaining momentum worldwide.
The Uranus—Pluto square did not leave us much time for a reprieve from rapid changes and the need to adapt to ongoing transitions. Simultaneously, the transits of Neptune and Chiron in Pisces are also reflected deep existential questions arising from the growing awareness of the ecological trauma we are experiencing.
Will there be a new dawn following the dissolution of so much that has been taken for granted? These intense and complex transits could in fact be precursors to the cycles coming in the year It may seem premature to analyze transits four or five years prior to their occurrence, when so much can happen in between; however, because promises to be a turning point in our history, now is an appropriate time. The year seems not to let up in intensity. From the first days of the year until the very last ones, each month accrues critically important planetary cycles that will undoubtedly set the tone for many years to come.
Here are the most prominent ones:. The year begins soon after a powerful total solar eclipse conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn, and this is followed soon after by the mammoth Saturn—Pluto new cycle conjunction, exactly on their own respective nodes, and also tightly conjunct the Sun, Mercury, and Ceres.
Jupiter Saturn Conjunction 2020 Vedic Astrology
In April, Jupiter catches up to Pluto for another new cycle conjunction, in close proximity to Saturn. This meeting of forces represents, among other things, the redistribution of power in the world or, in other words, which faction will make the decisions that affect the greater collective, whether this occurs in plain sight or behind the scenes. From a spiritual perspective, this cycle reflects a rite of passage determining who is most qualified to be the custodian of resources, and thus regulates who will be in a position of influence.
In its purest form, this cycle is one of the highest tests of integrity and morality for those in authority, along with a test of capacity and resilience.
Beyond the management of power, this cycle is also about the skill to increase power and the value of resources. Power and resources can be material but can take the form of knowledge, or spiritual potency, as well. Saturn—Pluto reflects a lesson about the right use of power, so this cycle is also associated with corruption and abuse. Interestingly, David Rockefeller, one of the richest and most influential bankers in the world, was born under a Saturn—Pluto cycle conjunction , and so were Rupert Murdoch opposition , head of a massive media empire, and Bill Gates square , founder of Microsoft and listed as the wealthiest person in the world for a number of years.
Similarly, Saudi Arabia, a country that possesses some of the largest supplies of oil in the world, was established under a Saturn—Pluto opposition.
2020 Planetary Overview
People born with these planets in configuration can be the custodians of power and resources, and their integrity will be tested to manage such a role in this capacity. Alternatively, those born under this cycle can also be the ones who identify and expose possible corruption. Looking back at previous cycles, we can see that a Saturn—Pluto conjunction occurred in October , around the outbreak of World War I; this global conflict certainly reshuffled power dynamics by dissolving the Russian monarchy, the Ottoman Empire, and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which led to the redrawing of national borders within Europe.
So take a deep breath, acknowledge that the next couple of days may be a wild ride, and do your best to handle the flux.
After all, Uranus is in your Sign and its instability is certain to rattle your steady steps. But there are times when you need the routines of daily life to be stable and reliable. Be clear and concise about your plans and your requirements and then ask others to do the same. If you join forces and create a shared strategy, figuring out how to please everyone will be a lot easier. And no, I am not going to start quoting Sting. As you move through this busy time, try to notice what upsets your internal balance and then figure out how you can handle those influences without relinquishing or sacrificing what matters to you.
From an external perspective, there are a lot of conversations and interactions with significant others, personal and professional, that need to be handled with awareness, skill, and grace. Hidden in these erratic fluctuations are opportunities to stretch the boundaries of your world and widen your horizons.

When these two planets are friendly and acting as your advocate, as they will be in March, the end of August, mid-September, and the end of December, life is happy and sweet. However, when Saturn and Pluto want to teach us all a lesson, like on April 19 or October 27, it can be maddeningly frustrating with little recourse but to take on a fight with City Hall.
Some astrologers worry that when Saturn and Pluto are together, danger of the rise of totalitarian dictatorship is strong in nations around the world. Admittedly, that could be a concern. Often, planets will test our commitment to certain values, so this year, we may have to fight hard for our belief in democracy.
Neptune, seeing this situation developing with Saturn and Pluto, will rush in and build agreement with these two, softening the effect. Saturn and Pluto will work beautifully with Neptune all year, for Saturn and Pluto will almost be joined together at the hip like Siamese twins. When Neptune beams one planet so close to another, it is as though he is beaming them both, so what happens to one planet will happen to the other. Neptune is known to cleanse, bring creative thinking, and add a spiritual quality to all it touches.
Thank goodness for Neptune, for without his care, Saturn and Pluto together can put up quite a united front of force, but Neptune will soften this aspect. Last year, Saturn, the planet that stabilizes all it touches, worked closely with unpredictable Uranus, adding encouragement and backing for new scientific discoveries and technical, digital innovation.

Bitcoin and encryption are only part of the story—Uranus rules sudden, unexpected developments and also electronic, scientific discoveries of all kinds. We will have to wait to see what comes. Good-fortune planet Jupiter will be in the sign he loves and rules—Sagittarius. This means you will absorb the goodness of Jupiter in a natural way, easily, and that he will have a strong presence in your chart.
Jupiter in fire-sign Sagittarius will be especially helpful if you are a Sagittarian, Aries, or Leo, or air-sign Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius. Yet all signs will benefit—I am splitting hairs here. In Sagittarius, Jupiter will help the publishing and broadcasting industries and the entire international travel market as well, including airlines, cruise lines, and railroads. Often energy will ping across the skies in a straight line to signs degrees apart, for example, from Sagittarius to Gemini, the reason I say automotive may prosper.
