Perspectives from the Sky
Astrological Forecast for December 2020
Turning a Corner… Into a Dark Tunnel
By Leo Knighton Tallarico
December and the Winter Solstice bring an end to a quite challenging year for humanity on Planet Earth. As my readers know, the planetary configurations in 2020 mirror the turbulent times we are experiencing. Understandingly, life feels more fragile and unpredictable now.
The election victory for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris brings new hope for many that we can evolve into beings who do not make “survival of the fittest” primal instincts as their most important value. Also, they hope we can “go back to normal” now.
Not going to happen. Covid, economy/stock markets, race relations, women’s empowerment issues, climate change, the Middle East, China, and more have shaken up our world. The “old normal” is in essence gone.
Perhaps we can co-create and/or hold onto the images and now shaky structures of that “old normal.” But on a very deep level we are each and collectively moving into new horizons, evolving into beings who are moving into the consciousness and ways of the Age of Aquarius.
Evolving into 2021
November 2020 through early next year 2021, we are releasing in huge volume old energies, patterns, beliefs, and paradigms. These do not fit who we need to evolve into. Letting go of Trump is an obvious big step forward in the releasing of the old paradigm and its stories that have kept us chained to an old Age of Pisces.
With the Biden/Harris victory, we get some light shining through the cracks in our walls of separation, as we experience the darkest day of the year on Winter Solstice December 21st. The symbolism is obvious, as Jupiter and Saturn make an important conjunction with each other at 0+ degrees of Aquarius. Jupiter and Saturn make conjunction exactly in Aquarius on Winter Solstice, less than 2 months since Biden/Harris won and accepted their new and important roles in our world.
But surrounding that new hopeful vision is the growing darkness of our world. The darkness has much to do with the continuation of Old Age consciousness, beliefs, and choices. Trump is the face of the old world’s most honored values of being rich and famous, deserving more privilege, “taking it all for myself,” and needing to feel superior to others. Let that sense of superiority or inferiority leave the premises of our minds, hearts, and bodies. Let go of that deeply ingrained programming by our culture/society/world.
Diversity within Unity, supported by Love and Truth, will give us the compass we need to go forward into the Age of Aquarius.
December Starts with a Bang
December starts off with a bang, as the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini from November 30th is still in the air. As in all Full Moons and Lunar Eclipses, the place of the Sun is directly opposite the Moon. What is the energetic of that combination?
Moon in Gemini is a bright light of clear thinking and communication – when at its best. President Obama was born with Moon in Gemini. But sometimes it is scattered all over the place, often because it gets overwhelmed with so many facts and information.
That is where the Sun in Sagittarius comes in. It is good at bringing varied ideas, opinions, and thoughts together for greater understanding, resolution, and higher meaning. But at its worst, it jumps to conclusions too rapidly and is usually not great at making sure that all the t’s are crossed.
Together they are a true power couple, with Sagittarius bailing out an overwhelmed Gemini from indecision and too many choices. And Gemini bails out an often arrogant, know-it-all, judgmental Sun in Sagittarius. Together they can move away mountains of fearful mental desperation, jumbled thinking, or judgmental attitudes.
Neptunian Dark Clouds Before the Winter Solstice
On December 7th, we move into the last quarter of our current lunar cycle, which began at the New Moon in Scorpio on November 15th. Now as we move into that last quarter of the current lunar cycle, our soul seeks safety and order, sanity, and discernment.
Then on December 14th at 11:17AM EST, the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius wants to burst through our dark walls of fear laden separation from each other, from human connection.
Neptune’s square of this Solar Eclipse puts a damper on the bright lights of the Sagittarius New Moon Solar Eclipse.
We are not ready to jump for joy yet. There are Neptunian dark clouds that are keeping us aware that our souls still need time to process emotionally and spiritually all that is happening on so many levels of being. Surrender to the collective Soul-being that unites us all, no matter the circumstance.
Just look at the amazing African American journey through slavery and beyond. What an example of soulful joy no matter the circumstance. The gospel music, singing and dancing, helped keep hope alive during the hell of slavery. And kept intimate connection with the Divine.
USA Natal Chart
This Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius is closely in opposition to USA Mars in its birth chart. Plus, the last Lunar Eclipse in Gemini was exactly conjunct the USA natal Uranus. So, there is much still shaking in the USA, with rebellion, revolution, and likely violence. The clash of chaos and order is always waiting in our collective human Shadow.
On December 15th Chiron goes Direct and on December 16th Saturn goes into Aquarius in preparation for its conjunction with Jupiter on Winter Solstice. Saturn will stay in Aquarius for the next 2+ years.
So yes, it is what we have been waiting for: Jupiter conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius on Winter Solstice December 21st – at 5:02 AM EST. We have just turned a corner into a dark tunnel, but with binoculars we can see the proverbial light at its end point.
The Election gave us our first sense of that hopeful light. But now it is dark again, as worldly events are dictating. But we have turned that corner and we know where this all goes, into a New Paradigm and Age of Aquarius.
There is no putting out the light of this new consciousness, no matter what it may look like on the outside.
Love you all,
