Every 13 years, there is a close alignment between Jupiter and Pluto. In 2020, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn have shaken hands two times already from March to November: April 4 (Jupiter and Pluto going straight on the 24:53 degree Capricorn), June 30 (Jupiter and Pluto going retrograde on the degree 24: 56 Capricorn), and November 12, 2020 (Jupiter and Pluto going directly on the degree of 22:51 Capricorn).
The conjunction is the strongest astrological aspect, it indicates an intense fusion and a strong interaction between the two types of energies. The planets unite, mix, and act as a united force. Each planet has a certain energy that will transform the essence of the other.
In astrology, Jupiter is the god of the sky and the king of the gods. It governs abundance, morality, gratitude, hope, honour and law, a sense of humour, goodwill, faith, positive thinking, and charity. Jupiter is falling into the house of Capricorn, in other words, he can feel like an unwelcome guest, like an intruder, like a prisoner of Saturn. By its nature, Jupiter is quite extravagant, but now we must beware of “too much” to replace extravagance with moderation. Jupiter’s expansiveness is restricted in Capricorn, and our thinking will often be limited by ideas that can be turned into something tangible. So, the biggest rewards appear when we make careful plans when we insist on overcoming obstacles (not running away from them…) when we do not hurry and accept that the pace of this transit is slower and carefully measured, limited. So Jupiter’s opportunities are paradoxically in caution, attention, sustained effort, well-made plans, boring or depressing problems, but necessary. Reward those who use isolation and loss to their advantage. There may also be an inclination towards pessimism or a hard-to-define conservatism.
Pluto is the hidden world, darkness, death, power, transformation, hidden wealth. His influence is quite brutal. It governs all taboos and intense emotions, vices, obsessions, dirty business, hidden power struggles. Pluto can be appreciated as a force that, although brutal, serves to awaken the spirit. Pluto also talks about division, division, crime, corruption, coercion, persecution, political repression, human rights abuses, dictators, opacity, intimidation, threats, manipulation, propaganda, and misinformation.
And Jupiter in conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn amplifies the story of division, division, political repression, human rights abuses, threats, manipulation, control, misinformation. Jupiter now amplifies the voice of Pluto that reduces, concentrates the voice of the family and society that conditions us and limits our vision of what is possible for us and for the whole world. The Jupiter-Pluto cycles work both materially and spiritually. In a positive way, the Jupiter-Pluto cycles reflect a remarkable ability to turn difficulty into opportunity, both individually and collectively. Social or material goals can be the center of attention and can require some reforms, profound changes. It offers protection (Jupiter) to the brave, to those who use their power (Pluto) for the good of others, to spread the truth.
As the aspect of the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn has taken place three times this year, the first conjunction manifested itself as a break from the outside world, a detachment, a forcing, an unseen hand-pulled us and kept us isolated, we make our way in Inferno. Our story is the story of Persephone who while walking in a field and collecting popcorn, cracks the earth and Pluto’s hand pulls it deep, isolates it in Hell-his home (Pluto did this with the consent of Jupiter-Zeus ). So did we, we saw the business that we thought was important and suddenly everything collapsed.
We are made to realize that there is no certainty in the illusion of a stable identity that we create from careers (that’s what I do and that’s what I am), luxurious lifestyle, clothes, house, relationships, friends, everything that the outer life offers.
Jupiter tends to exaggerate, swell, expand, and release the evolutionary life force (You die and become another man, give birth to a new man in you) associated with Pluto. Pluto’s energies either empower or overthrow. Pluto is about a new life, a new paradigm.
At the same time, this aspect places a special emphasis on finance, financial losses, and gains can reveal deceptive banking practices, restrictions, and limitations in career development, business, relationships with parents, financial aid, major events involving faith, religious practices. , the dark side of some religious approaches. We may be forced to revaluate the basic belief system whether it involves spiritual and religious principles or beliefs related to politics, patriotism, social justice.
If we work for the good of the whole, we will succeed in our efforts, but if we are concerned only with promoting our own beliefs in order to gain power, we will encounter difficulties. It is time to open up to a new level of understanding of the world around us. The negative expression of this aspect is an obsessive desire for power and control and general destruction.
The conjunction Jupiter-Pluto in Capricorn makes a sextile appearance with the asteroid 66652 Borasisi on the 25:05 degree Pisces (caught with lies, fictions, what is true ? the fight between the power of religion and the power of technology).
Borasisi is a mythical personification of the Sun in the fictional religion described by Kurt Vonnegut in the novel “The Swing of the Cat”. He is the only centaur named after a fictional character in a novel whose themes are world destruction and what unethical technology can do. Centaurs always talk about the nature of our wounds and Borasisi talks about beliefs that have deceived, hurt, or enlightened our lives, about rejecting the truth, about fictions, unnecessary human concerns, the panacea of science and religion. The themes of the book revolve around lies told in the name of religion and science.
Jupiter and Pluto’s conjunction is one of the reasons why Covid has occurred and with the last conjunction on 12th of November, we will see the numbers gradually drop especially after the 21st of December.
I expect an ease of energy once Jupiter and Mars have left their current sign.
Our lives should get easier after 6th of January, but not fully recovered.
Take care of yourself,
