The Birth of a New World View 2020 - Evolutionary Astrology
The Dark Side of a World in Flux - Part 2
If there is indeed a conspiracy by an unelected few to steer our way of life toward a new technocratic world order (a narrative that is now entering mainstream awareness), then I posit that 2020 may well have been the year planned to fulfil that dark nefarious vision. To give you an idea of what it means to live in this dystopian world vision, one need just look to some of the developments in China, such as the social credit system backed up by super surveillance, to get an idea of where things have been headed. Such a nightmarish dream is built on the lower archetypal expressions of Aquarius: a transhumanist technological and elitist system that endows the super rich with technologies, empowering them with god-like capacities and entitlements such as increased IQ and extended life span, while those without money and status have virtually nothing. Recent sci-fi drama such as Altered Carbon or the Hunger Games, and cyber punk novels like William Gibson’s Neuromancer, capture the essence of this undesirable potential future.
The notion of unimagined corruption within the system was first publicly hinted at in US president Eisenhower’s farewell address in 1961. Here are a few excerpts from that speech that was televised to the American people warning, to my mind, of the existence of what we now call the Deep State :
In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.
In that same year, JFK made the following speech, speaking more directly to the presence of a hidden corrupt influence within US government but operating at a global level. JFK was later assassinated.
"(...) Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe. The survival of our friends is in danger. And yet no war has been declared, no borders have been crossed by marching troops, no missiles have been fired. If the press is awaiting a declaration of war before it imposes the self-discipline of combat conditions, then I can only say that no war ever posed a greater threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of “clear and present danger,” then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear and its presence has never been more imminent. (...) For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence—on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match. (...)”

It is assumed that the wide-spread debunking of astrology goes hand in hand with the use of astrology by elite groups to effectively orchestrate events in a desired direction; to make use of archetypal energy flows to optimise outcomes. In astrological terms, the key auspicious events of 2020 are the Pluto/Saturn/Jupiter conjunctions in late Capricorn (which last occurred in a near identical way nearly 4000 years ago, when it is thought that the Babylonian culture first arose), and the imminent Saturn/Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius on the December solstice in a few months time.
In the simplest way, the Saturn and Jupiter conjunctions with Pluto mean the death of an old system and rulership models, to be replaced with a new ‘Aquarian’ vision for the world with the powerful conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius amplified by the solstice energy. During the period of 2020, one imagines conspired events would take place that would destroy an old way of living, followed by a ‘solution’ based new way that would establish a firm foundation for a New World Order (think global reset). And of course as we know, the mainstream media-driven narrative of the Covid19 threat and the subsequent legitimisation of an almost global-wide enforced social distancing protocol and its negative effects on the common person’s psychological health and livelihood is unprecedented in modern human history, and could qualify for an event that undermines existing systems with the potential to destroy them.
And yet, to pull off such an immense covert feat, would require the majority of people world-wide to refrain from thinking, to abstain from questioning the mainstream narrative, and to become immobilised with fear such that they mindlessly go along with everything put upon them; this does not appear to be happening in sufficient numbers, which suggests are gross miscalculation on the part of conspirators.
Saturn and Jupiter make conjunction with each other on December 21st 2020 in the sign of Aquarius.
Having established a context that acknowledges the plausible reality that an influential conspiracy does exist in some form, I feel drawn to highlighting the evolutionary potential for humanity to throw off this devious deception and transition into a better world than we currently experience from the collective/common person view.
Saturn and Jupiter conjoin in the sky approximately every 20 years, and this cycle describes the evolution of our world-view both personally and collectively. Conjunctions reflect both the culmination of a prior cycle of evolution, and the birth of a new cycle of growth. For about 140 years, the Saturn-Jupiter cycles have almost always re-birthed in earth signs, which has tended to anchor our collective world view into the physical, material, scientific and atheistic. The cycle started to transition into air signs in 1981 (Libra) followed by a final earth cycle in Taurus (2000-2020) and this year the new air cycle begins in earnest in the air sign of Aquarius (commencing a sequence of air cycles over the next period until 2159) , which will shift our centre of gravity away from a focus on the material toward notions of humanity working together in cooperation towards a better future, and the realisation that mind creates reality.
In 1980, when the Saturn-Jupiter cycle re-birthed in Libra, there was a renewed collective move toward social justice and equality during that period, which perhaps initiated the ascendency of women within western culture, and gay rights also evolved during that time: in the 80s homosexuality began to be decriminalised in the US, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. In 2001 when the cycle re-birthed in Taurus, as I mentioned in an earlier post, neo-liberal values went into overdrive, and everything has since then become so much about making money (Occupy movement 2011 and the meme of the 1%), while the excess material consumption of global resources and resultant pollution and loss of habitat has led us into a 6th extinction scenario, giving rise to movements like Extinction Rebellion (2018) and environmentalist icons like Greta Thunberg.
Current statistics indicate that approximately 70% of US Americans have less that $1000 savings, and that 48% of households led by those 50 years old and over have no pension plan - highlighting just how polarised the USA has become in regard to the “haves and have-nots”. It is worth mentioning at this point that one of the reasons why the US seems to be strongly affected by current events, and is experiencing social instability, is because the country as a whole is undergoing a Pluto return; transiting Pluto is just a few degrees away from where it was on the day of the signing of the declaration of independence in 1776. The ideological ‘experiment’ that gave rise to the Republic of the USA, is now entering intensified pressure to evolve. This could go two ways in my view, either we are seeing the decay and consequent death of an empire, or we are seeing a descent into the shadow followed by a rebirth into a fully reformed ‘pro the people’ republic, free from the internal corruption that has evidently hijacked the original aims set down in the constitution. In addition, the recent Pluto-Saturn-Jupiter conjunctions have all occurred within 4˚ of Pluto in the US founding chart, adding more intensity to the current evolutionary pressure. The actual Pluto return occurs 21 Feb 2022, but there will be some very close conjunctions in April 2021, July 2022, Jan 2023, Oct 2023 and Nov 2024 indicating that the transformation of the US, which is already underway, will take some years, and will lead into a global Aquarian evolutionary cycle that continues for almost twenty years until 2044.
It is also noteworthy that in 1961 when Eisenhower and Kennedy where both trying to warn the world of an unseen corruption, Saturn and Jupiter had just made conjunction in Capricorn. They were trying to take the responsible route, but at the time no one really listened. Capricorn put the focus on business as usual, a desire for the known and a resistance to new ideas and pro-humanity change.
It is always useful and interesting to look at the astrological ‘clock’ in order to better view collective developments in the world; through astrology we get to better understand both what is happening and why it might be happening too. And yet as individuals we must also work with these same archetypal energy flows within ourselves in the most productive way we can, to participate and positively influence the collective field.
At the time of writing this post, we have just experienced a full ‘supermoon’ in Libra, with a ‘blue moon’ (second full moon in the same month) occurring at the end of October. I loved the energy of this full moon. For me it felt very uplifting as the world seemed bathed in powerful high-vibration frequencies of energy; it was a chance to invite in positive care for each other, the capacity to listen to the needs of others, to cooperate and view each other as equals, and above all bring in the much needed balance that will help make the current world in transition safer and easier for all of us.
It is also worth bearing in mind that key astrological events fit into a larger cosmological picture; we belong to a galactic system, and our solar system is spiralling around the galactic centre of our milky way galaxy. The Vedic Yuga cycle describes cycles that span many thousands of years, and our solar system moves through galactic zones that differ in light saturation; some zones have more illumination than others, causing consciousness to be affected. Our earth is currently moving out of a cycle of ‘darkness’ and emerging into a cycle of ‘light’. Light is the appropriate word to use here, as we are literally being bathed in more light photons than before, ever since the earth entered a photon band around 1999.
These light photons are literally waking humanity up and causing genetic mutation and the activation of so called ‘junk’ DNA. In Oct 2020 with this Libra super-moon we are experiencing a surge in light radiation as it bathes the planet.
A New World View & The Next 20 years
Perhaps more than ever it is now important to begin asking the question “what next?” If we want to improve our personal lives and communities, our cultures and societies, we have to move away from fixating on what is going wrong and what has failed, and put attention on what we want to create next. If we want a freer more equitable world, then how are we going to achieve this? Fortunately we have a boost of energy at the end of the year to helps us along. We can expect to see a lot more focus on solutions in the next 20 years, as collectively and personally we begin to break free of obsolete and limiting mind-sets, ideas about how things should be done, and beliefs that either no longer serve humanity or were simply wrong in the first place.
Jupiter and Saturn together speak to the notion of freedom with responsibility, and in the sign of Aquarius that responsibility is going to shift to humanity; a collective cooperative and collaborative effort toward a better future for humankind. We must choose to make technology work for the betterment of the world and not allow it to enslave us. For example the internet will have to be re-made and set in service to humanity and not corporations. The silicone valley philosopher Jaron Lanier recently stated that the future of humanity depends on cleaning up the internet to stop the manipulation of human behaviour for profit; we should be able to connect with each other without a third party manipulating us.
In the same way, we need to slow down the development of AI (artificial intelligence) to make sure that what we are creating is beneficial and not destructive; we must learn from the mistakes of silicone valley entrepreneurs and go carefully with technological development. To date, developments in AI have occurred without consultation with the human community; spiritually un-evolved thinkers are busy creating AI with no restraint and no thought for the consequences.
There are other signs of the new Saturn-Jupiter cycle in Aquarius emerging too. For example the Unity 2020 plan to save the US Republic, proposes a new way for elected leadership, where two candidates for presidency are chosen from both sides, one with liberal left orientation and one with a conservative right leaning to work together in cooperation to lead the country. With this idea, once the candidates have been elected, they literally flip a coin to decide who is president. That person sits in the president role, while the other as vice president for a four year term, after which they switch places. Then after eight years, they switch again, and at the end of that term the president steps down, the vice president steps up to become president for a second term, and a new candidate from the complimentary (opposing) political orientation is selected to become the next vice-president. This idea is an example of an evolution in the political system (not set to occur before the up-coming election), which is what most of our political systems currently need.
Other signs of the growing Aquarian influence reflect in the recent appearance on social media of doctors from around the world coming together in groups to question the current way that governments are handling the Covid19 ‘crisis’. One such group is the WDA (World Doctors Alliance), an independent non-profit alliance of doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals and staff around the world who have united in the wake of the Covid-19 response chapter to share experiences with a view to ending all lockdowns and related damaging measures and to re-establish universal health determinance of psychological and physical wellbeing for all humanity. I would have put a link to a video from the WDA calling for not a ‘new normal’ but a ‘better normal’, but it has since been censored by You Tube. They do have an open letter intended for submission to the UK government, which can be signed here.
I have also noticed an evolution within the ‘alternative view’ memetic tribes who lean toward the belief in an unelected deep state, and an unacknowledged human trafficking system that involves millions of ‘slaves’, now coming together in ways that haven’t happened before. Examples of which are Reclaim Your Lives, One Small Town, Magnificent New Normal and Earth United, representing collaborative groups who are actively orientated to future forward changes in world systems, that improve human wellbeing, decency, rights, and freedoms, involving responsible custodianship of the planet. I expect some of these platforms and the ideas and values they represent will pick up in momentum in the next few years.
And finally a current buzz concept on the net is the idea of a global reset. There are two side to this I wanted to consider. It may be true that we are in the midst of a ‘silent war’ initiated by the Bilderberg group some decades ago, which is now culminating, in which both pro-humanity and against-humanity factions are battling it out behind the veil of a mainstream media controlled narrative.
No matter who wins, we are headed toward a global reset perhaps in the form of NESARA/GESARA or something similar (it is worth noting that the notion of NESARA/GESARA is all over the internet, wikipedia provides a useful overview of the topic, but bear in mind there is now a lot of noise and very little signal on this).
Aquarius has the potential to generate a better world for humanity, but in its lower expression it can also give rise to increased power to elites (New World Order). We must be cautious of any global reset that is offered to us as a ‘get out of jail free card’ type solution. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Remember that the foundation of the renewing Pluto cycles with both Saturn and Jupiter are rooted in Capricorn, the archetype of maturation and responsibility; any global reset must come about through the active participation of the people; we must break the cycle of dependence on corrupt self serving authorities, and step up as individuals, families, tribes and societies to co-create the better new normal we dream of. The old elite trick is to present a problem and then dangle the ‘gift wrapped’ solution (with hidden unwanted consequences) before the people in the hopes that they will swallow the whole thing “hook, line and sinker” (to use a fishing metaphor). We must not to do this; the positive change we want to see in the world, is one where we are in the majority active participants and co-creators.
