When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
Okay, so the Moon won’t be in your 7th house as the Now Age of Aquarius begins. That privilege is reserved for Capricorns. Plus, Jupiter won’t align with Mars. It will however meet with Saturn in your 4th of home, family, security and owning your path this month. As from December 21, the Now Age of Aquarius is cosmically underway.
With both these planets exiting your 3rd, your ruler Pluto is the only heavy hitter still in residence. It will remain in here until 2024 then it too will head into your 4th – by which time both Jupiter and Saturn will have moved on. Until then, take it that you are about to establish something bigger for yourself. A home. A career. A lifestyle. A way of living that you design. As well as The Age of Aquarius on your Spotify playlist, Billy Joel’s My Life could be set to be your anthem for the coming Now Age.
What’s your money mindset?
First, we are in mutable weather with the Sun, Mercury, Venus from the 15th and Juno in Sagittarius. Neptune and Ceres in Pisces. Plus, the North Node in Gemini and Vesta in Virgo. And mutable eclipse weather too with a total solar eclipse in Sagittarius and your 2nd on the 14th. The day when Mercury will oppose the North Node in Gemini. This is a karmic eclipse for many and will take us back to 2002 – or even further in 19-year cycles.
Remember – ‘mutable’ means changing. So, what emerges or what you hear under this eclipse is going to change. Eclipses conceal or cover-up. When we have a total eclipse the cover-up is just that. We are totally in the dark about something.
Look back 19 years if you are old enough at what was happening with your money, income, possessions etc and also your self-worth. What about anyone and anything you consider to be an ‘asset’? Your talents and your relationships. The people you know have your back and whose love and support you can ‘bank’ on. This may give you a clue of what this month and the eclipse may bring up for you.
First, check your chart for any factors at 23 degrees. Especially in any of the mutable signs – Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. If you are unsure then one of our knowledgeable astrologers can help you. If you have chart factors at 23 degrees of ANY sign (including your own), then this eclipse will impact you in a personal way on some level. Even if this involves events at a distance.
What you value, what you won’t ‘sell out’ or ‘give away’, usually refers to something else other than your cash. Something intangible but without which we would feel bankrupt. At least on a soul level. So, your standards and those values may be what you need to fall back on with a total eclipse in your money house. And yes, this is linked to your money mind-set too. Saying ‘The buck stops here’ says you have self-respect and standards. Hang on to these.
Needless to say, because a total eclipse is a total cover-up, please use caution when it comes to financial dealings now. Avoid large purchases. And especially hard-sells. Ask yourself why someone is so desperate to get you to sign on the dotted line so to speak. If you have been neglecting your finances lately – not opening those bills or checking where the money goes, then this eclipse is the ideal time to open up what you yourself have been covering up. Upgrade that money mindset by taking care of business.
As a general rule – try not to borrow or lend money under a total eclipse in here. Read any loan or credit agreements carefully. And if you do lend someone money – understand that no matter how good their intentions, it may not be repaid when they promise. So, unless you can afford to write the sum off for the long term, please think carefully before helping out. Others may discover that events that impact the global financial markets trickle down and affect their own income or investments. One way or another. What eclipses hide is not necessarily bad. But until we know what – we need to use caution.
It’s Hip to be Square
On December 17, Saturn finally leaves your 3rd house of work, commerce, communication and the internet. Not to return for another 29 years! Jupiter will follow two days later on the 19th. For many of us, the restrictions we have been labouring under began at the end of 2017 when Saturn first entered here. And peaked in 2020 when we had the life-changing conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, your ruler Pluto and Ceres in Capricorn in January. Since then, we’ve had to adapt and work within restrictions – symbolised by Saturn’s rings.
Work or study may have been extra hard work to get the results you were after. You may have felt misunderstood or simply not heard. A job could even have come to an end. Breakdowns, outages, feeling restricted or your ideas rejected. Or nobody may have appeared to want what you were selling – including your talents and skills. Jupiter’s entry into here at the end of 2019 may have offered some solutions. But not all of them.
However, so many of us are now emerging from this cycle with a new perspective on what really matters. This has also been due to Uranus’s presence in that other earth sign of Taurus. In your chart your 7th house of lasting love and partnerships. Along with those restrictions, it’s refined our value system. In your case you know that some things are just priceless. Like love.
So now, take this forward into 2021 and the Now Age of Aquarius. It’s going to be about a new world where those new values matter. Two days after Saturn arrives in your 4th, Jupiter follows. Now, check your chart again for any aspects at zero degrees of any sign but especially any in your 4th house of Aquarius. This includes your ascendant or rising sign, descendant, IC or midheaven as well as your North Node. Again, if you need more insight, one of our astrologers can help you.
The 21st also brings us one of the most powerful solstice events of the decade. This day sees the Sun light up your 4th house and you will feel the difference in the energy now ruler Pluto remains the only slow-moving planet in here. This day brings the ‘official’ start of the Now Age with the meeting of Jupiter and Saturn in your 4th at zero degrees.
Many of you will have realised by now that at some point, both Jupiter and Saturn will square your Scorpio factors during this cycle. Another reason for checking your chart. But with Jupiter involved it’s hip to be square. In other words, yes, we may have to work at something or push ahead with determination which Saturn asks of us. But Jupiter will ultimately ease the way for us. Especially when we are prepared to network, mine our resources or think outside the box.
In focus now: Creating a lifestyle that works for you. Moving. Getting a foot on the property ladder. Establishing something – a home, family, something which sustains and supports you, or simply your own direction. Jupiter in here can bring a big move or relocation. Or upgrade your present living arrangements. Feeling more secure but also a grand design that allows you to live your way, could be part of living in the Now Age for you.
You could have a vision of this during the full Moon on the 30th in your 9th. This is usually an explorer’s Moon but this could simply involve exploring living better or arrangements closer to home for you. The final day of 2020 sees Venus in its ruling 2nd oppose the North Node in your 8th. This could send some of you back to a situation with something you share – such as your home or living space, you encountered 19 years ago. Or it can hand you the empowerment to get moving and strike out towards a better way a living. It’s the way you live Now – all the way into 2021.
In a nutshell: Home, security, family matters and where you belong and who you surround yourself with will define the Now Age which begins this month. It’s also about owning your future path, Scorpio. You get to determine that from here on in.
