Perspectives from the Sky November 2020
Major Transformation Begins
By Leo Knighton Tallarico
We are now moving into the last portion of 2020. And what a year it has been.
We have been thrown into a new reality this year, one that requires each of us to be present and accounted for. There is this feeling, from many people, that before too long all will return to normal. Yet there is also a feeling, from many people, that all will soon fall apart in our world.
Neither possibility will be made manifest. The “normal” that existed prior to Covid no longer exists. Neither is the complete destruction of the world on the menu for likely outcomes from this end of year turning point.
But this transitional time is meant to help light our way forward into the Age of Aquarius. Yet, these are basically uncharted waters, as the last Age of Aquarius happened almost 26,000 years ago.
TURNING A CORNER
These last two months of 2020 will bring energies conducive to major transformation of our country and world.
The climax will happen when Jupiter makes conjunction with Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius. This occurs on the day of Winter Solstice 2020. And of course, right after the darkest time of year, light increases until Spring Equinox, when light and dark are equal.
How fitting that the darkest day of the year holds a sign telling us that the next 20 years – at least – will contain an abundance of energies and events that bring on the need for more community and social causes.
That Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius – on the Solstice – shows me a sign from the Universe that we are turning a corner into the Age of Aquarius.
Jupiter and Saturn meet in conjunction every 20 years or so, and they are then meant to begin a new 20-year cycle for the culture or society.
Every U.S. president since 1840 who was elected around the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction had died while in office, until 1981 when President Reagan narrowly escaped an assassination attempt. And in the year 2000, Jupiter/Saturn made conjunction in Taurus. That was followed by the 9-11 Twin Tower disaster in 2001. And that event really helped to define what would be in the spotlight for the next 20 years.
So, November will give us a time when much is shaken up, beginning the transformation of consciousness into an Age of Aquarius.
The election gets the ball of change rolling forward as Mercury goes Direct that same day, after over three weeks of disorienting our minds and attitudes.
Look at the election in November 2000 to get a feel for Election Day this year. Consider the Bush /Gore voting fiasco that happened. Then Mercury was in process of changing Directions from Retrograde to Direct on election night.
And with some confusion again, we move into a new era (the next 20 years), and a turn toward a New Age in Aquarius.
FRIDAY THE 13TH
As all the chaos from Election Day continues, we move into a November 12th Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, along with Mars going back Direct on Friday the 13th of November.
Jupiter conjunct Pluto brings great intensity and passion, especially so out in the world. The economy and war of one sort or another will be churning through our collective consciousness now. Also, the dilemma of a choice between taking the high road or low road will likely play out around that time – choosing between the high and low attitudes.
And most importantly Mars in Aries goes Direct on Friday the 13th of November. This signals all systems on go. Action will begin then or in the very near future.
For personal lives, it is time now to at least begin to actualize what we truly want and what direction we intend to go toward. Usually best to wait a week or ten days after Mars Direct to know for sure what you want or where you want to go.
One day later, on the 14th, there is a strong New Moon in powerful Scorpio. Those who want to overthrow or revolutionize something or someone else may be given confidence now.
That time in mid-November is really powerful energetically. So, the news in the world will likely be around conflicts, or wars, or at least some kind of confrontation.
In personal lives, the good news is you have the Universe at your back now. Time to be in your power, feel, and express your passion, and for new beginnings.
Bad news could show us major conflict and even war soon. The Economy may be shaky now, too.
This New Moon in Scorpio and Mars Direct in Aries powerfully breaks open a new Eclipse Season. And the first eclipse is on November 30th. It is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini at 4:30 AM EST.
There are challenges now, like sifting through lots of facts or information before finding truth. Clear communication is especially important now. Finding and knowing the truth, despite lying, deception, or even gas-lighting may be challenging, but it must be done. Listen to your inner wisdom and trust it.
This lunar eclipse triggers the USA natal Uranus. For the USA natal chart, Uranus has great importance as the ruler of Aquarius. Aquarius is about thinking outside the box and having a mind of one’s own. That is important now – to think for yourself.
The truth around the election, or with politics in general, may be quite challenging. Many will want to spin the truth into what they want or believe. Even journalism, which is supposed to be objective and fair, nowadays is very biased. Each TV station seems so obviously geared to one party or the other.
So, this eclipse intends to shake things up. As such, we may be more neutral when assessing what is true and what is bogus.
In December there is another eclipse, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius on December 14th. And December also brings the Winter Solstice with Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Aquarius. We will talk further at next month’s forecast.
