- What's Coming in October, November, and December 2020 -
And also the Vernal Equinox down under!! The Autumnal Equinox occurs at 6:31 am PDT, 2:31 am BST September 22. This marks the end of Summer and the beginning of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. It is said that a chart done for this point in time offers a snapshot of the cosmic and literal weather for the next 3 months.
Today is the last day of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, the last day of Winter in the Southern. If you’re wondering how I reconcile the seemingly opposing energies between the hemispheres, when you’re done here please take a look at The Mirroring of the Northern and Southern Hemisphere Year Cycles in Astrology. It may help readers “down under” see how the important points of seasonal change, though opposite in physical manifestation, actually have similar challenges at each point of shift. And yes, I'm already thinking of doing a small book on the subject, stripping the signs of their usual attributes and taking a more universal approach to the subject of the changes of the seasons.
There is an old tradition that offers us two times when "the year begins," one at the Vernal Equinox, the other at the Autumnal. Perhaps that tradition came from explorers who saw the seasons flip between the Northern and Southern, going from the beginning of warm to the beginning of cold as they moved up and down the latitudes.
This is an excellent time for looking at what has ended and what is emerging. We up North have done our Summer labor, and are reaping the harvest of what we've done and not done. In the Southern latitudes, they're beginning to plant the seeds that will grow over the next 180 days.
So if you're "down under," it's the beginning of Spring and beautiful weather. Just remember to have a little compassion for us up here when December 21-22, the Winter Solstice, rolls around and we're freezing while you're enjoying the beach!
Whether North or South, keep following through on the new roles, new initiatives, new feelings, new flow, and new ways of relating to others on more refined levels you’ve already begun to experience since Spring, since the season to come is the time to transfigure our future into more perfect forms. Regardless of where we live, what follows explores elements we all can expect to experience over the next 13 weeks.
The nights will now begin to be longer than the days for 6 months to come in the Northern Hemisphere, with lengthening days in the Southern. The Sun is now in Libra, promising enhanced and expanded relationships and social interactions. We can find new ideals, new ways of measuring and evaluating the balance in things, and new perspectives that offer us a well-rounded understanding.
The charts for the Solstices and Equinoxes provide guideposts for what we can expect the following 90 days in the way of weather, both actual and symbolic. The Autumn Equinox chart shows 1 planet in the first decan of their signs, 5 in the second decan of their signs, and 4 in the third decan.
This indicates a three month period of activity involving a tremendous focus on the emotional, social, and cultural levels of existence, with less emphasis, even if balanced, on the actional, physical, and material planes, as well as the individual, mental, and spiritual planes. Given the middle decan planets include Moon, Venus, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune, it’s easy to see that many areas of our lives are going to have an emotional-social emphasis the next 90 days.
Aspects and Configurations Shaping the Season to Come
As you know, in these active aspect sections I include barely separating partile aspects, since they are still in active operation. The outstanding quality of this Equinox chart are the strong aspects across several harmonic series. There are an outstanding number of aspects in various harmonic series, with Moon quintile Sun, then Mercury, Mars, and Saturn in a powerful T-square, Venus as the nozzle of a “Yod,” or “Finger of God,” along with triseptile Pluto, the Sun triseptile Mars, Mars square Saturn and Pluto, and Jupiter conjunct Saturn and Pluto! As you can see, it’s a particularly dynamic time ahead over the next 90 days for all of us!
As I give you every Lunation, the quintile represents a gift or specialized talent, a biquintile represents interactive gifts and specialized talents, and the tredecile represents interactive gifts and circumstances which are serendipitous, bringing exactly what we need or landing us in circumstances perfect for our unique gifts. In this chart we have Moon quintile Sun, Mercury biquintile Neptune, and the Sun tredecile Jupiter. That’s a lot of interactive specialization over the next 90 days.
Other major aspects include the Moon sesquisquare Mars and semisquare Saturn, and when we add Mercury we have 4 points of a Great Octile affecting 9-13 of the Mutable signs and 24-28 of the Cardinal signs. Venus is trine Mars and in the Yod with Jupiter sextile Pluto, and as usual, Mars continues to square the Capricorn stellium!
Venus triseptile Pluto and the Sun triseptile Mars shows a lot of cooperative, collective building of pioneering waves of change across many segments of our lives. The first triseptile involves zones around 13-17 Pisces, 4-8 Taurus, 26-30 Gemini 17-21 Leo, 9-13 Libra, 1-5 Sagittarius, and 22-26 Capricorn. The second triseptile involves zones around 25-29 Aries, 17-21 Gemini, 8-12 Leo, 29 Virgo-3 Libra, 21-25 Scorpio, 12-16 Capricorn, and 4-8 Pisces. If you have a planet or point in any of these zones, cooperate, move into new fields of expression, and join the other pioneers!
The quincunxes will bring adjustments and sacrifices wherever they are in our charts, and will work out not merely as events in those houses, but also will affect the rulers of those houses as well. At this Equinox, we have Moon quincunx Uranus and Venus quincunx both Jupiter and Neptune. These will bring an acute spiritual focus, especially for those who are willing to release old “social rigidities” in an effort to make like “freer and happier.”
Because Jupiter is now direct, it is making its third conjunction with Pluto, so hold on, since we’re now officially counting down to the Grand Mutation of December 2020 with Jupiter conjunct Saturn at 1 Aquarius, beginning a new 20 year Aquarian cycle and a new 200 year era dominated by Air rather than the Earth of the past 200 years. Prepare to achieve liftoff!
Thanks to Moon in Sagittarius we will all find a new adventure in feeling our “body consciousness,” and for many, it will seem like a period “dominated by fate.” This gives us a new way of expressing our willingness to dance with life, have a sense of humor, and develop some partial gifts which will become evident in 2021. As it’s conjunct the South Node, we enter 90 days of “showing what we know,” expressing our unique sense of happiness for integrating into the group work we’ve done up to now.
Because Mercury is one of the arms of the Cardinal T-square and on a degree of “seeing through life and death processes,” with Mars retrograde it’s a good time to step back from the urge to conflict, and see that the metaphor of Autumn leaves falling can calm our restless mind to understand the value of seasonal decay and rest before renewal. Because the void is in Cancer, feelings will run high in the next season, and the main requirements are a) don’t be too defensive, crabby, or provincial in your view, b) decrease your sentimentality and time wasting habits so you can get on with your more important work in the world, c) use your imagination to claim an opportunity you thought was lost, and d) let go of old rules and fears so you can take care of yourself and others in appropriate ways. Beware of superficialities and superficial people while being diplomatic and kind, and cultivate your spiritual rapport with others. Don’t be narrow in your interpretations, and be balanced in disciplining your mind and speech so that you can be more optimistic in what you think and how you relate.
Jones Pattern, Dispositors, and the Lunar Phase
With the Moon in Sagittarius, we continue to have a Splay Jones pattern. We have the tripod quality of three planets in Fire, with all the other planets spread out in irregular angles and several wide gaps between planets. So as we begin the season, all the planets are “splayed out” across 7 signs in an irregular distribution. As we had a Splay pattern at the recent New Moon, you can find out more by going to The September 2020 New Moon at 26 Virgo – Signs, Sabian Symbols, and What it all Means. You also may want to take a new look at Summer Solstice 2020 – What’s Coming in July, August, and September to see what was said about the season just past.
The Crescent Lunar phase indicates this season will be assertive, with everyone wanting to make an impression on the world. It is said this phase is “the adolescent,” challenging old forms left over from previous cycles, and moving from a personal emphasis to more of a concern for the future. I’d say the next 90 days will radically reorient everyone, with a lot of previous assumptions and trajectories challenged in some powerful ways!
With the element distribution, there should be an emphasis on inspired practicality and practical inspiration, since we have 4 planets in Earth, 2 in Air, 1 in Water, and 3 in Fire. That indicates a time of less personal experience and much more collective experience. The coming season is one of a uniquely better idea expressed through our “physical enlightenment,” or “bodily wisdom.”
So take a look at the vision of a transformed life and world being offered to you as you catch glimpses of a greater sense of community and connectedness. Open to a new archetypal role or vision, let yourself be transformed, and breathe easy as you let go of old social rigidities and find joy by making life freer and happier in fellowship.
Get ready to accept new methods, new vision, new archetypes, and new roles to play. You’re cutting loose from the past, while feeling your way to new decisions and actions. In fact, feelings will be running very high these next 13 weeks, leading some to take radical action. Just remember to get a new idea or vision, and let go of obsolete ways of viewing or understanding something. Let your feelings lead to you action, and then find a new vision and new understanding. Learn and teach through anecdotes, and keep your understanding new, fresh, and up to date. Do not rely on old information, and beware of superficial people making superficial statements.
As you do what you need to do, remember to experience yourself as you move through the changes, since by going deeper you will find new perspectives and a new life order. Be open to new ways of sensing the wisdom of your bodily instincts, and remember the friction you feel is ubiquitous, so you know you’re alive as a human! We’re letting go of the old at the natural season for letting go. Wisdom beckons those who can get beyond the rebellious ego-mind.
The next 90 days are radical growth in a new adventure related to recognizing our instinctive wisdom, with all polarization and conflict serving personality integration. See the transitoriness of things, use your imagination to reclaim something you thought lost, feel your connection with the world soul, and accept the mantle of power! See what standards need conforming to and which ones need to be dumped into the deep waters, and rise to the occasions which will help you see how your personality integration is exactly what those circumstances need.
A new pulse of the Ageless Wisdom is now mentoring and healing those who are receptive to the new. Let yourself heal into your Higher Self, focus on your social potential, and embrace the dance of the adventure of the next season. Buena suerte, and Godspeed!!
Aum and blessings as we stand on the threshold of a new season of life!
