Dear One,

Every year we celebrate the Winter Solstice, the darkest day of the year, as the time when the Light slowly but inexorably begins to return. This year, we have a lot more to celebrate as Jupiter and Saturn align for the first time in over 600 years in Aquarius exactly on the December 21 Solstice. Adding to the rejoicing, Jupiter and Saturn will create a “Christmas Star” visually in the sky on this Solstice, as these planets have not been this closely aligned since 1226.

This is one of the most auspicious planetary events we’ve had in the longest of times. As, not only are conjunctions signifiers of beginnings, but this conjunction occurs in Aquarius at the mystical degree of zero (0°)—which connotes the potential for everything to be reborn out of this still, pregnant point of emptiness.

Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance, in the middle of the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance, when you’re perfectly free.”RUMI

One of the best ways to preview what this momentous occasion will mean for us collectively is to review what happened in history the last time this great Jupiter-Saturn conjunction occurred in Aquarius in 1405. For, the first fifty years of the fifteenth century is considered to be when the Renaissance truly began.

“The Renaissance was associated with a wave of new artistic, scientific and cultural achievements. The French word renaissance literally means ‘rebirth.’

The Renaissance was a fervent period that paved the way for the revival of European literature, philosophy, politics, culture and art. This was an era of seeking the ‘great’, as global exploration opened up new lands, cultures and possibilities for the European economy.

Fact 1: The Renaissance was a period of time in European history from the 14th-17th century.

  • It served as the bridge that linked the Middle Ages and modern times. 

Fact 2: The Renaissance was regarded as a time of ‘coming out of the dark.’

  • It was a period of rebirth for science, art, literature, education, and music in Europe. It was also a time when people, in general, lived a better life.”

Aquarius is ruled by Trickster of Awakening Uranus who is considered the higher octave of Mercury, the ruler of the rational mind, analytical thinking and communication. This means that Uranus, and thus Aquarius at its highest expression, functions beyond the scope of the left brain, receiving spontaneous transmissions through the higher mind and right brain from the imagination, dreams, visions, intuition and lightning-fast downloads.

“I didn’t arrive at the fundamental laws of the universe through my rational mind.” —Albert Einstein

Accordingly, we can expect to see more and more entirely original inventions and innovations than ever before, especially through new medical, scientific and technological discoveries. And, going forward through 2021 and beyond, we can anticipate this new renaissance/rebirth to transform our human development to the next level of conscious evolution by accessing seemingly magical ways to connect, heal and thrive in all the areas we need it most globally: climate change, the pandemic, income inequality and especially through developing revolutionary new ways for alleviating human suffering all over the planet.

With Jupiter and Saturn now in humanitarian and altruistic Aquarius, and Transformer Pluto moving into Aquarius in 2023, we’re now firmly in the 2000-year Age of Aquarius, which many believe began with the Harmonic Convergence in the 1980s. And, while Pisces may represent unity consciousness experientially, it is Aquarius which plants the seed in our minds of the absolute level of reality where we’re all One Being with billions of faces.

On-line computer platforms such as Zoom and many others exploded onto the scene just in time during 2020 to allow us to connect globally like never before in the digital world for teaching, business, research and much more. And we’ll continue to see the rise of technological advances connecting us through the world wide web and other Uranian modalities perhaps not even imagined yet.

To further understand the significance and powerful impact of this profound reset event of Jupiter and Saturn (aka expansion and contraction) coming together at this exact time in human history, we can look to Alan Oken, one of my favorite astrology teachers and writers, who calls this conjunction: “The Cosmic Accordion.” He says:

“The music that comes forth from the celestial instrument asks the question: How are we to integrate the urge for expansion on any level within the structure, confinements, and limitations of time, government, rules, regulations, and current social tendencies. I think this has a LOT to do with the systems that need to be created for the distribution of the anti-COVID-19 vaccines—not to mention the great opposition to them that will be expressed by certain social groups.”

The above quote reminds me to share my own personal view from a Taoist perspective about the Covid-19 vaccine. And that is: Everything—including pharmaceutical drugs and Western Medicine—is part of the Divine or Tao.  How could it not be so?

Therefore, I’ve always been totally all right with taking drugs that I intuitively knew were right for me. This includes those that I wanted (birth control pills and bioidentical HRT) or needed (antibiotics and pain meds after surgery) for my health and wellbeing, including tetanus and shingles vaccines among many others throughout my life. For, where would we be—in terms of world-wide global suffering—without vaccines for small pox, polio and the like?

12 Vaccines That Saved the Most Lives

Since mind is always the builder of our personal reality, I choose to focus and feed the power of my mind to only having positive effects from any medicine or drug that I allow into my system—and, thus, have rarely had any major, long-term negative side-effects. I would mention that, since I’m ultra-sensitive to everything as a psychic (as well as being “clean and sober” since 1982), I limit any pharmaceutical drug use to being the absolute last resort, when all other holistic options have either failed or where there isn’t a viable alternative.

I’ve also worked with some clients, mostly in healing fields, who were adamantly against vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs under any circumstances. That is, until they or their loved ones—especially their children—are in such dire straits physically, mentally and/or emotionally—that nothing less than taking drugs will help to, if not cure, than at least alleviate some of the suffering from what ails them.

So, it helps, upfront, if we can do the inner work to release limiting beliefs about the Divine nature of all creation in the Flow (aka the Tao)—and thus short-circuit mentally projecting any fears and judgments (or negative side-effects) into circumstances which could cause us needless anxiety over decisions most of us will need to make over the next year or two re the vaccine question.

However, if one is 100% sure that a specific medicine or vaccine is not right for them, then it’s important that they own this as their absolute truth. But, if one is only 99% sure of what is right for them, then perhaps it behooves one to keep an open mind to the 1% possibility that the gains just might outweigh the losses in this relative plane of truth.

On a similar note: In the last year or two, more and more clients are coming to me expressing concern and anxiety about how some of the external manifestations of the Quickening (aka accelerating cosmic energies) may be affecting them adversely. But whether we choose to label this vibrational assault as coming from cell phones, WIFI, 5G, EMFs, smart meters, etc., we also need, for the sake of our sanity, to accept that all of these electrical frequencies are also All part of the Divine or Tao, and NOT separate from it. 

I choose to view ALL of this high-frequency bombardment as helping us to acclimate and become stronger internally as evolutionary guinea pigs. Is this good news or bad? In Tantra/Tao, it just IS—all part of absolute reality, with nothing separate from All That Is. How could it be?

In closing, what does this Great Conjunction mean for us on an individual level?  It helps to firstly look at our birth charts to see how smoothly the relationship is within us innately with the energies of Jupiter and Saturn. 

Then, we can look at what area of our lives (via the astrological house ruled by Aquarius) is going to be undergoing major metamorphosis and rebirth so that we can make the most of these most marvelous and amazing energies. For, even though Saturn and Jupiter have a grand conjunction every twenty years, this is the first time in an air sign for over 600 years, and this conjunction will continue in air signs through 2159.

If you’d like to make the most of this Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, an astrological reading from a soul-level karmic perspective is a highly useful tool. It’s also the perfect gift for a loved one going through especially challenging times.

 A reading allows us to be more awake and alert to the timing of opportunities coming our way for abundance on all levels (courtesy of Jupiter) as well as how to make the most of all the FGOs (f**kin growth opportunities—courtesy of Saturn). And because they are synergistically working together now, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, will illuminate in a most positive way all the karmic lessons which Saturn is always bringing to us.

Once we know which areas of our life will be positively highlighted this year, especially through the opportunities we attract, we can focus more energy and attention there. This is a brilliant way to consciously create and optimize the abundance that is our Divine birthright and allow it to flow into those parts of us and our personal reality that transits of the outer planets will be shining on through 2021 and beyond.

And finally, over a year ago, I wrote:
“While the negative side of Saturn/Pluto transits is about as bad as it gets in terms of abuses of power and corruption at the highest levels, I have faith that the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius coming on its heels in late 2020 will offset the most heinous misuse of power from being sustained for any protracted period and thus bodes well for humanity in the long-term picture.
What I do feel confidence in predicting is that this coming year will end on a decidedly high note because Jupiter and Saturn conjunct as they both ingress into Aquarius on the December Solstice of 2020. So that, while the good news may come after a very rocky ride, it helps to know that whatever turmoil we have been going through will, in the end, result in more of an upswing than a downturn.  YAY!”
And so it is:). 

Wishing us all a fruitful personal rebirth. Wishing us all faith in the Flow of Life as always perfect in the Divine plan for each of us, ever mindful that divine orderly chaos is the irreplaceable wildcard component intrinsically woven into the tapestry of the Tao.
