Jupiter approaches the Galactic Center, and will make an exact conjunction with the GC on Nov 19! So this year November 12-26 marks an incredibly important point in space-time for us all, beginning a new restructuring of our global energy relative to the galaxy. Jupiter amplifies the Galactic signal!
This is the latest of ALL the outer planet conjunctions to the Galactic Center happening. It’s also the first of three Jupiter conjunctions setting previous Galactic Center conjunctions by Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto into motion! We are moving into a new era of Galactic influence. I suppose one good thing about this is because we’ve already been experiencing the new Saturn and Pluto Galactic pulses in recent years, we’ve had plenty of time to do our dress rehearsals for embracing our new galactic understanding and discipline!
Given that this is truly an important point in our space-time reality, today we take a new look at the outer planet conjunctions to the Galactic Center, since Jupiter will bring yet another expression of these previous GC energies. Right now the CG is approximately 27 Sag 07, and has been on that Sabian Symbol degree since 2012, also an important point in human evolution, as we all went through a profound energetic adjustment, despite many not noticing.
The late degrees of Sagittarius, like all the other “faces” in the zodiac, have their unique quality in the “whole cycle.” They complete the promise, vision, and truth that expanded in Sag, preparing to take responsibility in Capricorn. As it is the Leo sector, it stabilizes and ennobles the Distributive Fire by Friction represented by Sagittarius. As it also has a Saturnine quality, Saturn found itself at home in that last decan, strengthening its persistent “bounded signal” since 2017.
Back when I first wrote this, I read that the Galactic Center is said to be a major source of motivation, aspiration, and the "gravitational energy" in our Milky Way Galaxy. I have also read that it accompanies "otherworldly" feelings and galactic experiences, and it is reasonable to infer that any planetary contacts to the GC do resonate with Galactic energy. Still, I believe it only activates those who are consciously aligning with galactic thinking, feeling, and acting, no small feat! So I do believe that this conjunction of Saturn with the GC will have a huge influence on letting energies in, though each individual will respond to the degree they are aware of galactic (transpersonal-spiritual) perspectives.
We are told that the GC was at 26 Sag 52 in 2000, and working back through the centuries we find it at the following approximate points: 26 Sag 31 in 1975, 26 Sag 10 in 1950, 25 Sag 49 in 1925, 25 Sag 28 in 1900, 25 Sag 07 in 1875, 24 Sag 46 in 1850, 24 Sag 25 in 1825, 24 Sag 04 in 1800, 23 Sag 43 in 1775, 23 Sag 22 in 1750, 23 Sag 01 in 1725, and 22 Sag 40 in 1700.
A Little History of the GC
In researching the web, I found this:
In 1932, Karl Jansky, a Bell Telephone Laboratories engineer, was searching for the source of static affecting overseas telephone lines. To find the source he built the first 95 foot movable radio- telescope to detect it. Part of the static turned out to be created by the center of our Galaxy at 26 degrees of Sagittarius. Astronomers paid little attention to the discovery, but to the astrology of consciousness, this discovery should rank right up there with the discovery of Pluto in 1930.
In the late 1960's, astronomers finally honed in on the GC (Galactic Center) with radio and infrared instruments. They were astounded by the immense energies to be found there. A huge Black Hole is thought to be at the center, about the size of a large star, but containing the mass of four million suns. The staggering amount of material being drawn into the black hole radiates energy at many frequencies.
Outer Planet Conjunctions with the GC the Past 300 Years
(This section is for time researchers who like to connect conjunctions with subsequent periods. If you’re not into the technical, please feel free to skip to the part which picks up with Saturn in 1988, since that will be of some practical use.)
Before 2006-2008, Pluto was last on the GC between February-May 1758, December 1758-January 1759, and June-November 1759, at 24 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn January-February 1762 and June-December 1762.
Neptune was on the GC twice in this span. The first time was February-June 1817, December 1817-January 1818, and June-November 1818, at 25 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn February-June 1820, December 1820-January 1821, and July-November 1821. The more recent time was January-June 1982, November-December 1982, January 1983, and July-November 1983 at 27 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn most recently January-February 1984, May-June 1984, November-December 1984.
Uranus was on the GC 4 times in this span. The first time was February-May 1735, December 1735-January 1736, August-October 1736, at 24 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn January 1737-June 1737 and November-December 1737. The second time was February-June 1819 and November-December 1819 at 25 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn January 1821, June-July 1821, and October-November 1821.
The third time was February-May 1903 and December 1903 at 26 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn December 1904-January 1905 and July-October 1905. The most recent transit of Uranus over the Galactic Center was February-June 1987 and November-December 1987 at 27 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn February-May 1988 and December 1988.
Saturn Conjunctions with the GC the Past 300 Years
Saturn has been on the GC 10 times in this span, including 2 important conjunctions on the GC with Jupiter and 1 with Uranus. The first time Saturn was on the GC during this span was January 1723 during the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction setting a new 20 year cycle into motion on this important point, and later that year in August-October 1723 at 24 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn December 1723. The second time Saturn hit the GC was in 1752 between February-June and in November, also at 24 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn January 1753.
The third time Saturn was on the Galactic Center during this span was at another Jupiter-Saturn conjunction around April-May 1782. Jupiter was exactly on the GC that year in February, June, and October, while Saturn was exactly on the GC in December 1781 and August-September 1782. Saturn was at 1 Capricorn March-May 1782, and both Jupiter and Saturn were again at 1 Capricorn in November 1782.
The next time Saturn was on the GC was December 1840 at 25 Sagittarius, and it danced at 1 Capricorn in February, June, and November 1841. It again conjuncted the GC in 1870 in January-February, Jun-Jul, and October-November at 26 Sagittarius. That year it entered Capricorn December 1870. The next visit was brief, in December 1899 at 26 Sagittarius. It spent time at 1 Capricorn January, July, and October 1900.
Saturn again conjuncted the GC in January and July-October 1929 at 26 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn March-May 1929 and November 1929. It entered the GC degree of 27 Sagittarius in March-May 1958 and November-December 1958, and again in December 1987, January 1988, and August-September 1988. Saturn was at 1 Capricorn in January 1959 and August-October 1959, and February 1988, May-June 1988, and November 1988.
It was during this 1988 transit that it also conjuncted Uranus all year long, a very significant contact whose influence will last through May-June 2032, when they will again conjunct opposite the GC in Gemini. Any time the outer planets conjunct each other, it sets long-term cycles into motion that affect the entire world. With Saturn conjunct Uranus, cycles of structured revolution are set into motion for decades. This brings forth new forms and structures (Saturn) shaping the expression of larger forces of change that are individualizing each of us and all of us (Uranus).
The critical turning points in the larger cycle that began in 1988 when they conjuncted at the Galactic Center were at the lower square of Saturn to that point in March 1996, the opposition to the GC point in August 2002, November-December 2002, and April-May 2003. And the upper (waning) square the GC in September-October 2009 and May-June 2010. This was a significant time due to the accompanying Uranus waxing square the GC conjunction point at 27 Pisces between April-September 2009, February-April 2010, and October 2010-February 2011. January 2011 featured a significant Jupiter-Uranus conjunction at 28 Pisces, also important in releasing energies symbolized by this cycle.
Saturn Structuring GC Energy Sprouted by Pluto 2006-08
Two years ago we experienced the latest Saturn transit over the GC. It began in February 2017and continued through its RX station at 28 Sagittarius exactly conjunct the current GC. So we actually began to be profoundly influenced by the Saturn-associated GC energies that were structured into humanity and the Earth as part of the larger energetic field.
Saturn structures whatever it visits, and helps us see our power to change what needs changing. While sometimes the yoke is heavy, if we willingly do what we must to become our spiritual ideal, as we move into our higher Destiny we clean up a lot of karmas and stop having the bad experiences we used to have. Saturn offers us hard-won understanding helping us live happy and fulfilled lives of service to the world. I speak of these things and more in Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend .
The 2017 transit of Saturn over the GC was the first since Pluto was there 2006-2008. That means these past 2 years Saturn has brought a structured growth of the galactic seeds Pluto planted and/or sprouted before then. However, this involves a larger perspective.
Those “galactic seeds” were endowed with the energy of the outer planet conjuncts before that time. As Neptune conjuncted the GC in 1982-83, it means those energies were structured in a certain way by Saturn in 1988, and now have begun a new structure of expression at this time, since Pluto stimulated these Neptunian energies 2006-08.
It is the same for Uranus. It was on the GC 1987-88, and those awakening energies affected the seeds planting/sprouting in 2006-08. Now those energies are being restructured in new forms by Saturn, since it is the Saturn return for the Saturn/Uranus conjunction in 1987-88.
We’ve been in a brand new era since 2006, with Saturn closing the era of 1987-2016 two years ago in 2017. And this is the first of many Jupiter passes over the prior conjunction points of all the outer planets before now. This expands the Plutonic seeds and Saturn structures for decades to come, since we won’t have any other outer planet conjunctions to the GC until 2046-2047 when Saturn is again in late Sagittarius and early Capricorn. So Jupiter gives us one pulse now, another one in 2031, and 2043 before Saturn gives us yet another Galactic structure affecting the third “Season of the Century.”
