Saturn conjunct Pluto and Astrology Forecast January 12-18

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This weekend has been very powerful and important, as it contains a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon; Uranus going back Direct; and Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn.

It is a big turning point for our world transitioning into a new age, and for the personal lives of the inhabitants of this world on Planet Earth.

The ramifications from this time period will last a very long time.

The old world  and its dying paradigm do not resonate with those of us who know, can feel, and are already largely living in the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

Saturn conjunct Pluto comes around on average every 35 years.  This time they are in Capricorn;  therefore the rules, regulations, and expectations of a largely patriarchal social structure is ready for repair.  More importantly, that old structure is in the process of deep transformation.

The USA is also on the verge of its first Pluto Return at 27+ degrees of Capricorn. Right now the Pluto/Saturn exact conjunction is at 22+ degrees of Capricorn.

That means it is already ‘in orb” of that Pluto Return, being only 5 degrees away. This Return is influential over the next 5 or 6 years.  The time of the exact Pluto Return is 2022 and 2023.

I have shared with the readers of this forecast blog the knowing that the natal USA Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house is exemplified by the Military Industrial Complex which runs so much of the world.

Interestingly in this year 2020, both Saturn and Jupiter will conjunct the USA natal Pluto placement of 27+ degrees of Capricorn.  And this happens while Pluto is closing in on the Pluto Return.

So the condition of the Empire’s Military/Industrial Complex must be ready for a huge shakeup over the next few years, a shakeup that will transform the Complex at its core, drastically changing the world we all live within. The Military and Economy form the Complex and the transformation must mean those two pillars of the old world will be severely threatened over the next several years

And so the exact Saturn/Pluto conjunction on the 12th of January, as well as the exact Jupiter/Pluto conjunctions on April 5 and November 12 will be immensely important as we transition into the Age of Aquarius.

Interestingly, that November 12 conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto happens just days after the USA Presidential Election.

And on December 21 Jupiter will make an exact conjunction with Saturn, which happens every 20 years.

This time Jupiter and Saturn will have just recently left Capricorn and the USA natal Pluto.

They will conjunct at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, an obvious symbol of connection to the Age of Aquarius, perhaps a sign that that Age has begun.

So this week, which finds climax at the Lunar Eclipse and Saturn conjunct Pluto configurations; showed us challenges to the Complex with the dangerous confrontation with Iran and the leaving of negotiations with the USA by North Korea.

Those stories are not even close to ending.

Importantly this weekend, with the planetary highlight being Pluto/Saturn,  there has been a tremendous dumping of fecal matter from the Old Chapter of our lives. 

If you have been slowly sauntering through this process of transformation of consciousness, now it is essential to make commitment to the new consciousness of this New Chapter of our human lives here on the Earth.

The dumping of old stories and old ways now is powerful. This “dumping” creates space for new consciousness, new ways.

It is time to renew your faith in your self, your higher Soul self; and it is also time to renew your faith in the Universe and its connection with your authentic Soul Self.

If you need to leave that job in order to let go of dependence on the security of old world ways, Do It.

If you need to leave your home in order to start fresh in new consciousness, Do It.

If you need to stop sharing the intimacies of your life with your birth family, Do It.  They see you in a certain way that is not you anymore.  They will continue to do that.

You may need to abandon any mirrors in your mind or in other peoples’ eyes that show you how you used to be in that old chapter. The old stories are gone now or are ready to be gone.

Trump is on borrowed time now as President, just as the stock market is on borrowed time.    “Smoke and Mirrors” have been influencing how we see the economy.   That programming also has shaped our attitudes, beliefs, and ego stories.  Releasing these fantasies is essential to your evolution.

We need to carry Love and Truth together into our new chapter, and if not the voyage is doomed.

All planets are Direct now that Uranus has shifted out of Retrograde. All systems are green light “go” for looking ahead now.

There is Civil War forming between the radical left and radical right. Where will that go?

There is outer world war forming with Iran and North Korea.   Russia is involved with Iran and China is involved with North Korea. Where is that going?

There are no more eclipses this Eclipse Season, no more powerful planetary configurations like Saturn Conjunct Pluto.

But Eclipse Season continues for at least a couple weeks more- till the New Moon in Aquarius on January 24.

And all the intense world events that pushed us through this Eclipse Season, like the confrontation with Iran, will bring new events as a result.

I am getting ready for a new podcast and for a talk here locally on Sedona that will be a webcast at the same time.

The podcast will be around the New Moon in Aquarius on January 24, and the talk/webinar will be at the Full Moon in Leo on February 8.  My Predictions for President during that time between new and full moon. More details to follow.
