2020 and Beyond
A few years back I noticed something in the transits. It was so big I didn’t know what to make of it. I figured, that’s okay, I’ve got time to sit with this. And now, it’s here. And I’m still a bit like .. hmmmmm, how will this play out?
On 31st October 2020 we have:
Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Gate 61
Uranus and Earth in Gate 24.
So not only Pluto and Uranus (think the upheaval of the 60’s), not only Jupiter and Saturn (BOTH our cultural building blocks) but also the energy of the Sun and Earth showing up as a trigger.
But this is just one powerful day, part of a long transitional process that has it’s most intense period between now and mid-January, and then fans out to 2027. In this post I want to give you a longer view, to build the picture of what we are creating.
Jupiter and Saturn meet up like clockwork every 20 years, as they move through the astrological elements – earth, air, wind and fire. The last 200ish years they have been in the earth element, which ties in very closely with the Tribal Circuitry in Human Design – focusing on possessions, experiencing the material benefits of life, caring for each other in practical ways. This maps closely with the Cartesian view of the world as a well-oiled machine! But now we are going quantum!
In just a few weeks, December 2020, we shift into a new 200ish year Jupiter-Saturn cycle in the air element. The shift will take us away from the more materialistic society we live in now, and into a more networked, collaborative and mentally curious time. It will bring our attention to aspects of life generally hidden, the resonance of frequencies, bio-networks like moss and funghi, free energy and peer-to-peer networking.
The focus will shift from what can I own? to what can we create together?
This shift to the air element fits well with the new energies after 2027 – the Incarnation Cross of the Phoenix, with it’s potential to bring each individual into a matrix of brilliance that supports a new epoch of human experience. This is the end of the era of the nation-states. We are moving into more fluidity in our identity, race and community.
The previous cycle has taken us from imperialism, colonialism, slavery and the rise of the middle classes for whom a good job is key to a good life. We are leaving behind these old hierarchies for a more networked approach. Pluto is seeing out the last of the power struggles, with those at the top desperately trying to keep the inequities in place so the wealth keeps trickling up. But that time is done.
The influence of Pluto and Uranus turning up right on the cusp indicates this is more than a 200 year thing. Pluto is transforming the very nature of Jupiter and Saturn from the old cultural structures of religion, government, law and into the new archetypal energies of creation. Jupiter is the creative ideal and Saturn is the new form principle. The old hierarchies of religion and government have no foothold in this new energy.
The next few months are pivotal in this shift. Here are the important dates
- 30th October – Jupiter shifts into Gate 61, with Pluto and Saturn
- 31st October – Full Moon with all planets in Channel of Awareness (chart here)
- 3 November – Mercury goes direct (US Election – read more here )
- 4 November – Saturn shifts into Gate 60 in the Root Centre
- 15 November – New Moon (chart here)
- 28th November – Uranus shifts back to Gate 27, making a channel with Haumea
- 30 November – Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse (chart here)
- 2 December – Jupiter goes into Gate 60, joining Saturn
- 14 December – New Moon and Solar Eclipse (chart here)
- 21 December Jupiter and Saturn are both in Gate 60 line 5, beginning the new Jupiter-Saturn cycle (chart here)
- 29 December – Jupiter shifts into Gate 41
- 4 January 2021 – Saturn shifts into Gate 41.
Full Moon 31 October 2020
The very day the Sun and Earth activate the full house in the Channel of Awareness, we have a Full Moon ….. in that channel. EXACTLY on the Uranus activation.
This represents new beginnings (44) but they come in unexpected ways (Uranus, and also the line 2 activation). Keep everything simple, be open to what is emerging, focus on long-term possibilities, make a place in your life for creative transformation. Expect revelations, fake news, the unexpected. As the Sun is in Gate 44, making a channel with Gate 26, expect it to have some connection with Covid. And expect protests, all around the world. Despite the apparent instability, the underlying energy is incredibly positive.
I’m watching the dwarf planets closely, as they are a doorway to a new level of consciousness.
Mercury is sitting with Haumea (in 50.1) – this is about new social technologies (which is also very Uranus) and keep in mind the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction which is shifting to the air element (networking/ideas). Mercury is the messenger of the gods, a doorway to higher consciousness, bringing through the higher mind of Uranus, and Gate 50 is about new epochs, what we keep and what we no longer need.
Venus is with Makemake in Gate 18 – correcting ancient patterns of human DNA through seeing stories that have been hidden within the dominant narrative of colonialism and imperialism. Magdalena is also right there, which gives an insight into what is emerging from the chaos, the invisible feminine aspect of the divine, the power of women’s creative potential, and a recovery of women from the handmaid version of religion back to an original sacred expression.
You must deal with the corruption of authority. This means danger with roots in the past. If you do this the Way will open. Be active, you can realise hidden potential through the change.Stephen Karcher, Total I Ching
New Moon 15 November 2020
This is where we begin to see radical change, as everything is turned upside down and the stream of events can require you to release old ideas about what you value, who you give your power away to and how you can maintain a sense of order in your life.
Notice the activation of the central channel from the Head Centre to the Throat. In the Kabbalah, this integrates wisdom with understanding through lived experience. It is calling us to acknowledge the truth, regardless of our fears for what it might manifest into our reality. This is a time of finding the power to engage in ways that are more subtle and attuned to what we might call the cosmic order, rather than societal rules.

It can feel as if everything is overwhelming and wouldn’t it be nice to be somewhere else, but the way through is to pay attention to your small daily tasks, to contemplate what is important to you and what you can release. There’s no need to go looking for solutions, don’t try for too much, you’ll just get exhausted. The quantum realm doesn’t require you make a huge effort (that’s Cartesian thinking).
There is something really significant in Pallas meeting both Pluto and Jupiter in Gate 61 line 3 in this chart. Pallas is all about recovering from imperialism, taking back the natural order including the need for organic and natural growth processes. The feeling of being blocked is not a problem, because things are moving. You just have to release yourself to move with them.
Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse 30 November 2020
The asteroid Terpsichore anchors this Full Moon. In Gate 48 she meets the Earth in Gate 16. Terpsichore is the Mother of the Sirens, dark, powerful, ecstatic, transformative, she is moving us outside our comfort zone and into a new relationship with the true feminine energy. We are reclaiming our physicality, the pleasure of being here, living gracefully in response to nature and life. We are connecting with the life within us, down to the cellular level.
There is an emerging sense of some new purpose, a clarity, a new sense of identity coming into view. Terpsichore brings you the courage to dance with it, allow it to move you outside your comfort zone through small daily acts of uniting your purpose with the big picture. Imagine greater possibilities and weave them into your day in small ways. Rather than trying to create outcomes, master who you are, align yourself with your gifts and future possibilities.
This is also the energy of Gate 26, that is so prevalent through this entire process – we have been conditioned to accumulating money, possession, status and influence. Now it’s time to shift, to begin to accumulate integrity, passion, purpose and to gently allow them to build up in our lives so we can act when the opportunity arises. Rather than exhausting ourselves trying to make things happen.
Mars is still in the Gate of Shock, the Arousing energy that wakens everything to life in spring after a long cold winter. Allow yourself to be roused, shaken to life. Don’t look back to what you have lost, but align yourself with a new sense of long term possibility.
New Moon and Solar Eclipse – 14 December 2020
Dancing with powers beyond your control, you may want to escape to the past rather than engage with the flow. There is a dawning realisation of how profound this transition is.
The idea of putting things in order is appealing, but how you do that is key. You enter into relationship with the creative flow as it moves through your life. You do this by paying attention to the small daily tasks, aligning yourself and your actions with the greater harmony. You are actively engaged in change, but not in the old way. Now you are disentangling from the old toxic energies and letting go of any particular outcomes. You move with beauty and grace, allowing blockages to be, without seeking to engage with them in the old way, just working with what’s in front of you. In this sustained active way you create synergy and momentum despite it seeming as if you are doing nothing much at all.
2021 and Beyond
As we move through the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on 21 December 2020, a doorway is opening to a new world. There are powerful forces to master, work to be done and a new kind of creative responsibility arising.
As Pluto shifts out of the Gate of Inner Truth in January 2022 we can no longer compromise our own truth, our own piece of reality within the matrix of brilliance.
Jupiter and Saturn are making a pathway through Gate 60 – Limitations, and then Gate 41 – Decrease. These are gates that teach us how to create in alignment with cosmic forces. How to have a rich inner world that is reflected in our outer reality. How to overthrow the tyrant, the old king, and his controlling rules that rob us of vitality, and connect with the sweetness of life. The limits and decrease of the next few years will only work in our favour, to return more of what fills us with pleasure. As Pluto follows along behind – through the Gate of Limitations (60) in 2022 and Decrease (41) in 2027, we can engage powerfully with this call to harmonise our highest conscious potential with the earth plane.
Our work is to build a life that allows us to be available to the subtle shifts, and to weave them, day by day, into our lived experience. Our role is to be alive to our emerging sense of identity and purpose, and to live more each day as that unique version of ourselves. Our purpose is to bring a new consciousness to the form principle, as Gaia called for us to do many millennium ago.
