Saturn finally moves out of Capricorn into Aquarius on 17 December, completing a three-year arc of sombre, thorny, relentless challenge and ordeal.
Jupiter follows Saturn into Aquarius where the two planets conjoin on 21 December, marking an epochal shift from the Earth Era into a new Air Era: a new two-hundred-year-cycle of Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions in Air signs.
"The two planets have been making conjunctions in Earth signs since the early 19th century, enclosing and timing the waves of industrial revolution, overseeing the transformation of our relationship to the material world, and presiding over unprecedented wars for territory and resources. The next Jupiter-Saturn conjunction, which occurs during the last days of 2020, will be in Aquarius, an Air sign. This conjunction begins another two century cycle of conjunctions in Air signs, thus bringing an end to the Earth Era." — Austin Coppock
