As I always say, the planets don’t give a
fu er, “hoot”, about how we keep track of time on Earth.
Astrologically, the start of a new week/month/year doesn’t have special significance. It’s the dates of specific planetary configurations that we care about.
Last year, we experienced three crucial astrological events on five specific dates (one reason why it was such a… unique year!):
- January 12: Saturn-Pluto conjunction
- April 5: Jupiter-Pluto conjunction (first pass)
- June 30: Jupiter-Pluto conjunction (second pass)
- November 12: Jupiter-Pluto conjunction (third pass)
- December 21: Jupiter-Saturn conjunction.
Astrologically speaking, 2020 ‘started’ on January 12 and ‘ended’ on December 21. That’s almost equivalent to a calendar year. But, some years, we don’t have an important astrological event until April or May. And, that one event may be at play until June or July of the following year. So, a calendar year is not always the most accurate way to track astrological phenomena.
As an earthling, I nevertheless understand the symbolism of beginning a new year. So, in this post I will cover the most significant astrological influences over the next twelve months, and specify who will be most affected by them (if you have your birth chart handy, you’ll want to reference it).
I have divided this post into various sub-sections so you can read it piecemeal (and easily remember where you last left off).
