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 Saturn in its ruling 10th on December 21. Which is when we can say the Now Age of Aquarius is cosmically underway.
First, we are in mutable weather with the Sun, Mercury, Venus 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 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.
Hidden signs of the times
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.
Check your chart first for any factors at 23 degrees. Especially in any of the Mutable signs. If you are unsure then one of our knowledgeable astrologers can help you. If you have chart factors at 23 degrees of ANY sign, then this eclipse will impact you in a personal way on some level. Even if this involves events at a distance.
For you however, this is in your house of change, transformation, empowerment, your salary and shared assets. This is a black out in a house where things are deeply hidden or not acknowledged at all. The issue may push your buttons or even trigger a flight/fight response. Remember, there is more than one kind of flight. We can leave by simply refusing to look at something or deal with it. We can numb or distance ourselves to it by using food, alcohol, drugs prescribed or otherwise, binge watch or just pure escapist fantasy. Purely because we either feel powerless over it or are scared to confront it.
This could involve a partner because this is your house of shared and marital assets. And also your house of sex. It could involve your boss, employer or even the bank or another institution as this house rules what you owe. It covers up but also pulls you deeper in all at the same time.
Feel the fear and look anyway
Questions around one or both of the old-as-time reasons for feeling unsettled or conflict could appear from all of this. These are ‘How much do you love me? And/or ‘Who is in control?’. If you trace back all conflicts both global and personal over the millennium, they all go back to this starting point. If you want to begin to shine a light on this eclipse, start with these. And know that YOU are in control over what happens to you. But that you cannot control what other people do nor their responses. That’s called empowerment, Taurus.
So, if you can, avoid major decisions around partnerships, your spouse, your career and taking on new financial commitments under this eclipse. You need more information and clarity. And above all, you need to examine anything you may have been avoiding in the light of your personal power. And to know nothing is unsolvable or scary if you do. Whatever the issue is – it’s not Medusa! You’re not going to turn to stone by staring it in the face or calling it out. You will however, remain stuck until you confront it.
Yes, maybe opportunities had been a little thin on the ground since the end of 2017 when Saturn first entered your 9th. In fact, ‘grounded’ could be a good term for this cycle. But then, at the end of last year, Jupiter arrived in what is its ruling house. So, at that point many of you would have been expecting doors to open wide when it came to making your mark on the world – or experiencing it.
Instead, you found yourself with your wings clipped. Advancement if it arrived, would have stemmed from working within constraints and with what you had. Perhaps you made the most of this. Or perhaps all that has resulted from it is those feelings of powerlessness I just touched on or feeling you were not in control of your own destiny any longer.
And now for the good news. On December 17, Saturn finally leaves your 9th. Not to return for another 29 years! 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, Pluto and Ceres in Capricorn in January. Since then, we’ve had to adapt and work within restrictions – symbolised by Saturn’s rings.
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 your 1st. Along with those restrictions, it’s refined our value system. And for you especially, its been about defining what truly matters to you.
What value do you bring to the table?
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. And for you, advancement, recognition and success will be linked to the impression you make on the people you meet. There’s going to be a big shift in the balance of power. Away from a few at the top to a more egalitarian system. So, prepare for this by being as universal and inclusive as you can in both your outlook – and your personal ambitions, Taurus.
Step up and own your future. And also come from a place of how you can contribute and share. It’s not just about what others will do for you. Because Jupiter’s arrival in your 10th from the 19th is going to be all about people in high places ready to help or throw opportunity your way. It’s about you sharing your knowledge, experience, expertise or uniqueness with the world in a way that simply makes it a better place for those you interact with. That’s what the definition of success for the Now Age will be about for you.
The 21st brings us one of the most powerful solstice events of the decade. This is the day when the Sun enters your 9th. But also the day when Jupiter and Saturn meet in your 10th at zero degrees of Aquarius. And marks what will be the ‘official’ start of the Now Age.
Check your chart again for any aspects at zero degrees of any sign. 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. So, take the concept of what value you bring to the table now Taurus, especially when it comes to your career but also how you in turn are valued in your relationships, and turn it into a new kind of sharing success story.
Ruler Venus arrives in your 8th from the 15th and will move over that eclipse point as it transits this house. Helping you discover the truth and also easing the way forward for you. The full Moon in your 3rd on the 30th could see you communicating more openly – especially around those wants and needs. Or alternatively, news throws more insight on those hidden eclipse issues.
Venus’s opposition to the North Node also in your 3rd on the final day of the year points to a fated fresh path opening up for you for 2021. It could free you and offer the experience and expansion you are seeking. Your ownership of your path will come via your willingness to bring something to the table which others can value. That idea, book, contribution, invention, product, insight or maybe just your loveable presence, Taurus. Time for something bigger.
In a nutshell: Time to get serious about what you want to achieve in the Now Age of Aquarius which begins this month. Reach for a higher goal that’s aligned to your soul values, Taurus. And ask not what the Now Age can do for you. But what you have to contribute to it.
