Have you heard about “The Great Conjunction” occurring today December 21, 2020 on our Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere? For those of you who are interested, what follows is a collection of musings and considerations surrounding the planetary movements of this significant time for the human experience.
Consider joining us in a global meditation occurring at the moment of the Great Conjunction -10:22 AM Pacific / 1:22 PM Eastern at the exact moment Saturn and Jupiter conjoin at zero degrees in Aquarius. Twenty minutes is the recommended time allotment for the meditation.
Today December 21, 2020 is the winter solstice in the Northern hemisphere — the first day of winter. When the frost arrives, we commence a period of transformation, an ending that denotes a new beginning on the horizon - the pattern of seasons. Just as the seasons are cyclical, the planets in our solar system follow a pattern of cycles known as orbits, and our home planet operates on a cycle of 26,000 years.
This 26,000 year cycle referred to as the procession of the equinoxes, is where our planet’s axis draws a counter clockwise circle in the heavens, where the Spring Equinox will appear to rise in the sky. It’s not happening in one instance, but we are in a transitionary period where the Spring Equinox will start to rise in Aquarius. Basically, each zodiac sign covers about 2100 years with 12 zodiac signs equating 26,000 years per cycle.
You may recall the excitement surrounding the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012, when our planet and our sun aligned with the Galactic Center; we were the closest to the cosmic birthplace that we had been in nearly 26,000 years (some say the last time was the demise of Lemuria). The significance was that this anticipated moment was marking the beginning of a new cycle on our planet and potentially the beginning of a more pronounced polar shift.
We’ve also seen some other interesting planetary movements this year.
On January 12, 2020, we had the Saturn Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, which hadn’t occurred previously since 1518. The word conjunction refers to a joining or coming together of heavenly bodies. Many believe that this occurrence signals a changing of the guard, meaning a change in hierarchal structures or a change in leadership on a grand scale.
Venus has just completed a lap around the sun also known as an 8-year transit that started in 2012. The transit of Venus has been revered and monitored by many ancient cultures. The Grooved Ware people who built new Grange in Ireland (and Stonehenge) used the site to track the Winter Solstice and Venus’ heliacal rise when Venus becomes the Morning Star and rises before the sun. The heliacal rise of Venus occurred on June 10 of this year, and today we will witness the Morning Star rise with the Winter Solstice.
Typically, Venus does not pass on our planet’s orbital plane, but in 2012 it did. And some say that back in 9792 BC, Venus made it’s circle above Orion after what is referred to in the Egyptian Book of the Dead as the “Great Cataclysm”. This is suggested to be the time of the fall of Atlantis, the great flood and the Ice Age.
In 2012, Venus passed on our planet’s orbital plane before the great prophesied cataclysm that we are experiencing now known as the Double Cataclysm of 2020 AD. In this perspective, there is a mirroring occurring here and the future holds the opposite of what has come before. For example, we’ve experienced a rule of the elites, and now we will perhaps experience a true rule of the people. Noting that we’ve seen global demonstrations against oppression this year in Belarus, India, Thailand, Shanghai and in the United States.
Saturn and Jupiter enter conjunction every twenty years, but there are some significant aspects about this particular conjunction occurring today.
Besides a similar conjunction that occurred in the sign of Libra back in 1981, this is the first time that this conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter has happened in an Air sign since the 1400s. The two planets reunite for the next 150 to 200 years in Air signs (Aquarius, Gemini, or Libra).
What can we expect from the Age of Aquarius? We can potentially expect a reintegration of women in leadership roles and decision making as well as an end to the oppressive patriarchal energies of the last era. This means in many instances liberation for plant medicine, healing modalities, a return to so-called "alternative medicine" and more emphasis on self-healing practices.
Did you know that Reishi and Turkey Tail mushrooms may boost your immune system. And Spirulina builds cell walls, fortifying protection against viral attacks and data uploads? Lemon Balm herb has been known as a cure-all and protective plant for many hundreds of years.
We currently have 2 active DNA strands out of 12, 46 chromosomes our of 144, and 4 chemicals - ATCG out of 12 chemical nucleotide bases. With this expansionary period, we could activate more of our DNA for stronger intuition, greater utilization of energy, and even stronger telepathic communication.
We will absolutely continue our progress in raising awareness around environmental concerns and the impact of human industrialism and unnecessary petroleum waste.
While it make take a miracle to stop the inertia of the destruction of the Amazon rain forest, the pollution of our waters, and the poisoning of our air, it is indeed possible. The solution could be as simple as partaking in a global mediation on the Winter Solstice during the Great Saturn Jupiter conjunction of 2020.
The Time Has Come.
