What follows is an Astrology Update from Master Amius, Arcturian Royal Astrologer
My friends, we are at an exciting and profound turning point on this precious planet. I wish to inform you of the astrological significance of this time and what energies we will need to employ to achieve a successful outcome during this tumultuous period. There are astrological cycles during our lifetimes which play out throughout time and space, influencing history and modern events. I will focus today on emerging trends and timespans, regarding the transpersonal planets, Saturn, Pluto and Uranus. These are slow moving planets that directly influence our present cycle of time, and represent powerful forces strongly affecting all life on Earth. These 3 planets point to the cultural forces that are now dominant in the minds and hearts of humans. Saturn, the Lord of Karma, shows us where we need to do the work to overcome past conditioned patterns which keep us in fear and bondage. Pluto, the Lord of death, rebirth and transformation, is requiring us to break down old structures so a new order can be created. Uranus, the awakener, is bringing sudden unexpected and often disruptive changes, so we may be liberated and know uncompromising truth. Under his influence, we can free ourselves and live up to our highest ideals, giving us a sense of belonging to a larger global community where we can help one another.
Our evolution is moving from the Age of Pisces into the much anticipated and even sung about Age of Aquarius. Each Age is approximately 2,000 years old. Many astrologers consider Dec 21 st , 2020, the day of the grand conjunction between the 2 social giants, Saturn and Jupiter meeting up at 0-degree Aquarius, as ushering in the Age of Aquarius.
Think of the Age of Pisces as a waltz, polka or tango. Each of these dances has specific rules to follow, with traditions that go back into the past. The Age of Pisces signified a savior/victim consciousness, requiring an outer authority for guidance and rules. Blind faith, control, denial and group think were the norm during this age. With the Age of Aquarius, think jazz, improv, jamming and riffing together, one off another, creating new harmonies and rhythms that excite, activate and heal. As we welcome this new Age of Aquarius, we feel a distinctly different current. This new energy desires freedom and cooperation, equality and respect for all life. This brings power to the people, rising up in love and deeply caring for all of life, working harmoniously to create a new Earth together.
We can anticipate revolutionary technologies that will benefit and heal people, animals and the Earth during this time. In addition to ushering in the Age of Aquarius, the Saturn and Jupiter conjunction at 0-degree Aquarius which occurred on Dec 21, 2020 signaled a change from 200 years of those planetary giants meeting up in Earth signs to meeting up in Air signs for the next 200 years. I wish to convey how momentous it is to have this occur simultaneously with the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. Earth signs focus us on worldly concerns and needs like food, money, work, housing etc. Now, meeting up in Air signs for the next 200 years, Saturn and Jupiter will lay the foundation and framework for the beginning of the Age of Aquarius with diverse and radical ideas, great intelligence, humanitarian values and social awareness. This is exceptionally good news for all of us on the planet!
The beginning of the 21 st century showed stark signs of moral and systemic decay, with the climate crisis coming to a head. The Saturn and Uranus square during 2021 and 2022 will create maximal pressure for humans and society to change in deep and fundamental ways. A profound change in our values must and will happen for life on Earth to continue in a healthy and sustainable manner. We must learn to adapt to sudden, disruptive changes, and follow a new order, a higher directive. This massive confrontation between Saturn and Uranus, the old and the new, the past and the future, the traditional and the revolutionary, is messy, as you can imagine. As we enter the Age of Aquarius and let the deepest inner truth guide our lives, we can view the personal and societal breakdown we now are experiencing as a necessary de-structuring and breaking apart to clear away the old paradigm of domination and control and move us into the next reconstructive phase. What will be necessary? We must keep our minds on what we wish to create and co-create in each moment, with gratitude and love, letting go of any old vestiges of guilt and shame and patterns of manipulation and control so pervasive in the Piscean Age,. This inner work is crucial for personal and planetary evolution.
The birth chart of the United States, July 4, 1776—shows Pluto at twenty-seven degrees thirty-three minutes in the sign of Capricorn. This placement of Pluto in the US’s second house of money, possessions, values, home, material security, and natural resources—has been evidenced from its beginning. The misuse of power under Pluto’s influence led to overaccumulation, materialism, acquisition, and the creation of wealthy organizations that are prone to control, manipulation, and domination—including hierarchical structures in government and corporations. Even an individual’s value was reflected by their finances. However, Pluto, also represents destruction and re-creation. Death and regeneration. Transformation, including transformation of our way of thinking. In the year 2020, when Pluto reached 28 degrees Capricorn, we had our first inkling of the meaning of the US’s Pluto return. The devastating effects on the climate crisis were still in their relatively early stages. It was the first time that the United States began a passionate restoration of values, abandoning patriarchal views that had contributed to the havoc wreaked on the planet. Americans considered restoring a set of values that were life-giving, care-giving, and co-creative under its new visionary President. It was a balanced union between divine feminine love and divine masculine will.
In 2023-2024, the United States will experience its first full Pluto return, due to Pluto’s 248-year orbit around the Sun. This transformative transit will affect the entire world, due to the US’s global influence. Pluto in Capricorn demands integrity and responsibility in the structures of our lives and society. Our governmental structures and corporations, places that hold and wield power, will come under tremendous scrutiny, with corruption and secrets being revealed. Pluto is creating an uncompromising pressure for us and our society to change, to undergo a death/rebirth process of transformation, like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. The US, and the world are meant to transform into a place of beauty, love, power and purpose, with humanitarian values of love and compassion for all life at its base. One of the keys to help us break free during the Pluto return is a return to ‘feeling.’ Compassion, with a deeper understanding of ourselves and others through the fine instrument of the heart. This will enable a complete transformation of American society as Pluto reaches its first full cycle and return, coincident to Earth’s climate emergency, requiring a Plutonian transformation of values and respect for all life. Let us use Pluto’s destructive power to destroy systems that are corrupt and harm life, and reconstruct our world with Aquarian ideals of humanitarianism, love, compassion and wisdom.
Uranus, the modern-day ruler of Aquarius, moved into Taurus in 2019 and will stay there until 2026. This will help to wake the sleeping masses and lead to a global awakening. Uranus will assist Pluto in shaking everything up—including Earthlings’ ability to receive information. ‘Cosmic consciousness,’ I believe Earth people used to call it. Many will recall at deeper levels who they really are, breaking free of old patterns. A remarkable achievement given how long humans have been asleep and unaware of their true nature. Fortunately, the rise of Venus in 2012 activated women’s inner passion and power as they began to exercise their appropriate influence. Climate awareness arose because strong women spoke up and began to fight for the future of their children and their children’s children. Earthlings in the early part of the 21st century began to treat all life with respect and equality. It was the only way to survive.
Uranus in Taurus, which represents the Earth and our values, both personally and collectively, will assist in the radical shift in morality and standards that are now required on this planet. People and groups are suddenly awakening overnight to the urgency of the global climate situation while simultaneously knowing their role and power to effect change. Society will become more of a sharing culture with Uranus wanting more equal distribution of resources. Thus, new technologies for food production, more self-sufficient energy production, and Aquarian technological advances to heal both people, animals and the Earth will emerge during this time. You could say that Chiron, the wounded healer and bridge between Saturn and Uranus, will successfully bring the seeds of an enlightened society to us all.
Dear friends, we are all being called at this time to help usher in the Age of Aquarius by waking up to our true identities as cosmic, spiritual beings having a human experience, with the imperative to follow our heart and work for the benefit of others. Stay mindful and alert to the new currents streaming into your hearts and minds, as you begin to make the changes needed for this world to not only survive but thrive. Step by step, we are being asked to co-create our world with a new paradigm. One of love and compassion, perfectly integrated with wisdom and intellect. We all have the power to bring forth this new world and enlightened society. Let yourselves be drawn into groups and communities that you feel an affinity with; to places that reflect your deep underlying values, and to areas less vulnerable to the destructive effects of climate change as we recreate the world anew! Therefore, the astrological energies bode well for all who wish to come together and preserve life on the planet Earth. Collectively, we can help all people across the globe retain their fundamental rights to have clean food, water, education and healthcare, halting the Reptiles stranglehold on the planet. However, to do this, you will
all need to wake up to your true power and bear responsibility for future generations. One way to do this is to engage in peaceful civil disobedience worldwide. This will help redistribute wealth and power from the hands of greedy corporations who are using the Earth as their monetary instrument, back to individuals and groups who will properly care for the Earth. The trend ignited by the Extinction Rebellion was a true revolution. But not one borne of anger and hate. It was, as in the words of Assata Shakuur: “R/evolution means protecting the people. the plants. the animals. the air. the water. r/evolution means saving this planet. r/evolution is love.”
The time for change is now and we are the change that the world needs. Go forth with courage and optimism. Work on behalf of your planet. Work with others and remember to stay positive and have hope. The future is in your hands, and the astrological influences support the essential transformation that the world requires to become a truly enlightened society where all living beings will be cared for with love and compassion.
Blessings to you all!
