2020 is an epic "New Era"! Astrologers have been eagerly anticipating the massive alignments that 2020 will bring. We feel change coming, the old system is dismantling and navigating changes will not always be easy. We are in-between the new and old way of being, pioneering the new model.
Lunar Eclipse in Cancer: connect to what truly nourishes you
The Full Moon on January 10th, 2020, at 20 degrees Cancer, is a lunar eclipse.Lunar eclipses are accelerated portals of time that shift energies, release emotional debris, and bring endings and resolutions to things that we have outgrown. This eclipse features the Sun, Mercury, Saturn, Pluto, and Ceres in Capricorn that all oppose the moon. Capricorn represents the Patriarchy, Capitalism, Government, Control, Military, Karma, Law and Effect. The old structure is dissolving and yet those in power of these structures are fighting for their place in it. Pluto is bringing up the shadow of these archetypes to the surface so we must collectively look and wake up. This eclipse is an activation into a new paradigm. We are working with these archetypal forces both in our personal and collective lives; what you see in your outer reality is reflection of what is shifting within. With the full moon in sensitive Cancer we may strongly feel that our security is threatened and we may easily overreact. Communication and power issues may also be highlighted with Mercury and Pluto conjuct the Sun. If you find yourself locked into power dynamics, right/wrong, feeling overly sensitive, taking things personally, being overreactive, pause and take a breath. Ask what is this representing for me? What is it that I need? This is a call to own our own projections and do the inner shadow work. In November 2018, the North Node entered Cancer and the South Node entered Capricorn. Since then we have been called to connect to what truly nourishes us, build a stronger spiritual foundation, find our people and where we belong while shedding any previous structures, shadow loyalties, and systems that our no longer serve our growth. This is the first full moon lunar eclipse in Cancer since this nodal shift happened and emphasizes how we nurture ourselves and the collective.
From December 2, 2019 – December 19, 2020, Jupiter will transit through Capricorn for the first time in 12 years asking us to think bigger about how we can truly serve and how far we want the vision to go. This is a time of adulting, having resilience, being accountable and grounding vision into form. What dreams are practically realizable? Hold the Big Vision and make the 12 year plan- embody the potential and then climb the mountain. Jupiter spends about one year in each sign of the zodiac, and activates each major Archetypal theme in 12 year cycles. The last time Jupiter toured Capricorn was December 18, 2007, through January 5, 2009. Think back to what was happening in your life then. Jupiter is the visionary and the seed planter of your potential. Wherever Jupiter transits one's chart this next year will show us where we need to develop in our confidence, potential, and capability. It will also emphasize where we have settled and need to grow.

The planetary placement of Jupiter in Capricorn asks us to apply Jupiter's higher perspective into a grounded form. Jupiter in Capricorn is our most optimal time in 12 years to apply all our life experience and education to the world's most exasperating problems and create simple, strategic, and practical solutions. The real learning during this time will be derived from the wisdom gained from the experience of done the hard work. It is through our life experience that true Wisdom is gained; it is not gained through upholding a belief that we have been perpetually told. Jupiter's tendency to expand beyond limits will be brought right down to earth about what actually is realistic. Where we have gone to extremes to achieve power, success, wealth will be highlighted. A balance will be created over time between where we personally and collectively have lost touch with what is real and rebuilding again in a more authentic manner. The morality and integrity of Jupiter in this earth sign ask us to remember to consider what is truly important in our lives. Where have greed, success, and material wealth eclipsed honoring and respecting one's humanity? We are being asked at the highest level to grow and expand the divine consciousness within us and anchor it in service to humanity.
Ask yourself:What area of your life needs more focused attention? What's the bigger picture that I can now see? What patterns are keeping you from fulfilling your life's work? Where in my life do I need to get real? What strategy, structure and systems do I need to support my vision? How much can be accomplished within the practical limitations of time that you have in a one day, one week, one month?
