21 December 2020 was the long awaited and much hyped date of Jupiter conjunction Saturn. What makes this extra special is that Jupiter conjunction Saturn takes place on the exact day for the winter solstice. This marks the Suns very lowest, darkest point of the year. (UPDATE I added the quote from Shakespeare’s Richard III now in November since things have got so much bleaker in the world since I wrote this post in August.)
“The world is grown so bad,~ Richard 3rd
That wrens make prey where eagles dare not perch.”

The good news is that from the Winter solstice onwards, light begins to grow with the return of the Sun king! It’s not all doom and gloom after all. This solstice symbolism is even more poignant when we consider the meaning of this historical conjunction and the fact it takes place at point ZERO of Aquarius.
Jupiter expands while Saturn contracts. Jupiter is the so-called greater benefic while Saturn is the greater malefic. Here we find we are in a battle of good versus evil. Of course, we have seen that played out on the world stage in recent events with each one being more polarized than the last.
It started with Brexit V EU, then Trump V Hillary, then black V white, and now the latest incarnation; mask-wearing or non-mask wearing. Of course, Jupiter plays the god of all gods, while Saturn is very clearly playing Satan! But this is a conjunction NOT an opposition, therefore ideally we should be blending the best of the two rather than continually polarizing each side.
Jupiter Conjunction Saturn at 0º Aquarius
My first instinct about this conjunction was that it had some kind of messianic quality. At best this should make for a very levelheaded leader. However, we mustn’t forget that Saturn overpowers Jupiter while he is in Aquarius so this is not going to play out as the great Messiah that some might have been hoping for.
After my findings, I am seeing this as a far more tricky conjunction than it seemed at first sight. Not only that, but I found that the chart of the Anti-christ has both these planets in Aquarius (Though not in conjunction) according to Jeane Dixon.* So I looked at how both Jupiter and Saturn faired in Aquarius decan 1 since the effects of this conjunction will be felt while they are travelling through this decan.
*Jeane Dixon came up with this date. February 5, 1962, 7:07 AM. An Aquarian stellium in the 12th house with Aquarius rising.

Jupiter In Aquarius
JUPITER ON ALTAIR 2º ~ “Real or pretended religious zeal, hypocrisy, trouble through legal and church matters, and with relatives, disappointment over inheritance.”  “To have the courage of one’s convictions, success through bold action. A focus on the military” 
Jupiter in Aquarius decan 1 is not a conventional, materially successful placement. Instead, it goes off-piste in search of the wild, the wacky and the mysterious. This transit for some will have them diving headfirst into a conspiracy or two.Some of the subjects born with this placement are the prime subjects of some conspiracy theories as if to prove a point.
The zealous edge to Jupiter in this decan can go off the rails if it doesn’t keep grounded and in touch with reality. I can see why some people might even get persecuted or even sectioned for having the unorthodox beliefs that come with this position. Leaders who come to power at this time have a messianic aura about them, but they will have a dangerous, rebellious streak too. Radical religious gurus come from this position with the scientific bent strong too. This is where science or technology can become a religion for some.

Saturn In Aquarius 1
SATURN ON ALTAIR 2º ~ “Sorrow and disappointment, mental disturbance necessitating asylum or hospital treatment and probably death there, separation from family or parents, danger of accident involving inability to work or lifelong affliction.”  “Building and seeking honor in daily life. The spiritual and/or physical warrior striving to express themselves. The honouring of war heroes. 
Don’t balk at the fixed star write up for Aquarius decan 1! I know.. it all seems thoroughly miserable! However, my research found that it’s not all doom and gloom and there is certainly the potential to rise above this prognosis. Although this can be a melancholic and maddening transit it is also extremely heroic.
The way to avoid ending up institutionalised then is by having a higher purpose. Fly as high as an Eagle, take the bird’s eye view and do not get bogged down by low-brow, earthly temptations and distractions. During this time one might have to seek solitude and peace so one can hear the sound of one’s higher self or god.
Acting honourably brings divine protection. At this time you will be drawn to service-to-others rather than service-to-self. Ignoring the call to spirituality and truth could lead to severe downfall. In my research I found a good few killers in this decan and even the Anti-Christ! However, Austin Coppock reminds us that Saturn is extremely potent since it is so strong by dignity here. Saturn rules supreme for better or for worse.
Coppock says it comes “to know what it is to be on the outside, looking in. From their vantage outside, however, they come to understand how systems operate better than those entombed within them.”This Saturn/Aquarius detachment becomes a superpower then! However, with a strong malefic it is important to work carefully, like when handling a very toxic substance. It is a very effective repellant! Use this position to exterminate the rats and parasites in your life.
0º Aquarius Meaning
Jupiter Conjunct Saturn took place at 0º Aquarius close to Fixed star Altair. It falls in Aquarius decan 1 which covers the degrees 0º – 10º Aquarius. Austin Coppock calls this decan “The Mark Of The Exile.” The theme here is that of the lone wolf and outsider. There is also an overlay of military and religious zeal to this decan. The Knights Templar come to mind. Times are tough here, all the same, so a transit of an outer planet through this decan is going to call for cunning plans and strategy. This face has a double Saturn influence too since it rules this decan as well as the sign of Aquarius as a whole. Coppock says of this decan: “Though not dressed in the regalia of kings nor in the finery of nobles the figure labours creatively and independently which is not represented in this trio of images (The different face illustrations) for all of them hail from feudal worlds were the consequences for breaking with the mainstream of society was far worse than in the 21st-century”  How things have changed!
Age Of Aquarius?
This gives me a vision of those notorious basement dwelling keyboard warriors and meme-makers so prevalent within the millennial/Gen Z generation. This is the zone of the heretic and the person who breaks from the herd. This is when we become a hermit and can feel quite lonely. But we can also enjoy a greater amount of personal freedom and feel content that we are being true to ourselves and are not beholden to slave masters. During this period some might be called to take up martial arts where they can bridge the gap between mysticism and physical fitness. Coppock goes on to say that “For some, the exile from the standard reality system may be forced but for others, it is an intentional exodus even a liberation.”  Usually this is a decan that likes to upgrade its partners, but during this transit, it will be about upgrading itself.
Jupiter Conjunction Saturn ~ Conclusion
I have seen some references to an economic predictions book called The Fourth Turning. Its basic theory is that economies rise and fall within a generation of 80 years (Uranus cycle is 84 years!) within those 80 years are 20 year seasons. Jupiter conjunction Saturn occurs 20 years approximately.
I haven’t read the actual book so I might be off here, but according to Roger James Hamilton we are in the middle of the winter season and a crash or war is coming in the next 5 years. I’m wondering if the Jupiter conjunction Saturn signals the peak of this crazy time.
Peak winter then? Which is good news! According to Hamilton, the last winter period ended in 1945 which gave us a New World Order. If 1945 was the beginning of a new era then 1945 plus 80 = 2025. So 2025 could be the dawn of this new age, the Aquarian age? Looking at the peaks, I would say we start the cycle later than 1945 because it is so clear where the peaks are.
Current Economic Cycle ~ 80 years
Spring 1951 to 1971. Peak 1961 (Jupiter conjunction Saturn in Capricorn) Summer 1971 to 1991. Peak 1981 (Jupiter conjunction Saturn in Libra) Autumn 1991 to 2010. Peak 2000 (Jupiter conjunction Saturn in Taurus) Winter 2010 to 2030. Peak 2020 ( Jupiter conjunction Saturn in Aquarius)
If we think these are part of an 84 Uranus cycle then the dates are not written in stone, but we can definitely see a pattern. Looks like there are 5 years of transition between the end of the winter period to the new spring so that means we should see things improve after 2025 maybe?
I would like to think that 2025 is the start of the new dawn, but realistically it could be 2030. I say all this because I know my title seems very negative, but we cannot avoid natural law and we can see there is a degeneration occurring. When this happens we can at least know that there is ALWAYS a resurrection.
This Jupiter conjunction Saturn fuelled collapse is needed and a Doom King is also needed to usher in the new. This is all good Feng Shui for the soul. The old elite are putrid and their lies stink bad. But this is all good, for they are rotting to make compost for the new spring that is coming, stirring deep within the ground.
Jupiter Conjunction Saturn ~ Research
First, we examine people who have Jupiter Conjunct Saturn natally. I’ve noted people who have this conjunction rising or on the midheaven (Plus in houses 1 and 10). I also include those who had Saturn or Jupiter as their ruling planets, that way I could ensure that this conjunction was working strongly in their horoscope. Then we shall look at events in history and see if we can spot a pattern.
