There’s no denying it: we’re in the midst of a big historic shift that will really start to take shape in 2022.
In many ways, the cosmic programming of 2020 and 2021 was a prelude designed to prepare us for changes in world power, economic systems, weather patterns, and our way of life.
The prospect of change can be overwhelming and frightening. But what really drives the anxiety is the idea of navigating the unknown. It is precisely the work of clairvoyance, and more particularly here of astrology, to provide this cosmic GPS.
Today we face global uncertainty.
As you navigate through 2021, keep an eye out for the here and now and the fast approaching future.
In other words, live in the moment and “one day at a time”. But simultaneously play the game by saving money, being resourceful and planning ahead. Build and plan … but also let go and be flexible. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that the best-laid plans sometimes need to be revisited.
In 2021, Jupiter and Saturn travel through Aquarius, a sign of society, technology, and revolution. It’s a huge departure from their vigorous journey through Capricorn in 2020, which focused on themes of government, business, and hierarchy.
Now we look to innovation and massive change that will reform the way society is organized, governed and served. Will all technological advancements set us free… or limit our freedom and privacy?
Here are a few things that will remain in a state of flux or continue to undergo change in 2021.
Our relationship to time will change as Saturn and Uranus collide
As Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn transited the sign of Capricorn for most of 2020, our sense of time was changed.
When Jupiter dips into Pisces, which is associated with nonlinear time, from May 13 to July 28, things could get even more « quantum. » (Interestingly, the European Union voted to end DST in March 2021.)
We got a glimpse of “social distancing” when restrictive planet Saturn paid a short visit to Aquarius, the zodiac sign that rules group gatherings, from March 21 to July 1, 2020. Now Saturn is in Aquarius until March 2023 for a heavenly winter.
This does not necessarily mean that weddings, conferences and music festivals will have to be cancelled. But if astrology is any indication, we can certainly expect to see modified versions of these gatherings, perhaps with the technological help of Aquarius.
Jupiter in Aquarius and Pisces: Finding Hope?
As Jupiter launches between idealistic Aquarius and compassionate Pisces, at least part of our focus will be on creating a brighter future in the world. But with Saturn also in Aquarius this year, it won’t be an overnight job.
Jupiter reveals what has been hidden. We will repair, renovate to make these lofty visions of Jupiter a reality.
Gemini/Sagittarius Eclipses Indicate Global Transformation…
Since June 2020, a series of eclipses on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis has upended our relationship to long-distance travel (Sagittarius) and the local community (Gemini).
As the North Karmic Node moves through Gemini from May 5, 2020 to January 18, 2022, our relationship to mobility, community, and communication will continue to be reshaped. This cycle, which occurs roughly every 19 years, disrupts all the charts associated with Gemini and Sagittarius. With the South Node in Sagittarius ruling global travel and relationships, it’s no surprise that countries have banned foreign travelers and ‘stay at home’ has become a mantra.
…and the Taurus/Scorpio eclipses an economic shift
A new round of eclipses could affect the economy starting November 19, 2021, as these lunar metamorphoses begin to sweep through the “finance signs” of Taurus and Scorpio. For next year, these eclipses will be interspersed with those of the Gemini/Sagittarius axis, altering both commerce and community.
This is the first time we have had Taurus/Scorpio eclipses since November 2012 to October 2014, a time of economic downturn in the United States and problems in other parts of the world, such as Greece, Venezuela and Russia.
The first eclipse is in Taurus, a sign of finances and material security, and can be a taste of upcoming tax reforms. On April 30, 2022, when a Taurus solar eclipse comes into close contact with Uranus, the planet of technology and upheaval, the global economy could experience a major turning point.
Is the world ready for a new monetary system?
A previous series of Taurus/Scorpio eclipses brought us the euro, which officially began circulating in coin and banknote form in 2002. During recent eclipses on the Gemini/Sagittarius and Taurus/Scorpio axes, we witness to global and economic policy developments.
The next cycle will certainly bring a new wave of change. Perhaps the “internet of the economy” will see the light of day?
