The astrology of 2020 sucks. It just sucks. We see it reflected in the world: pandemic and other crap. The world is a mess. As above so below. The transits of the luminaries and planets throughout 2020 are not just intense, they are destructive and purge all toxicities out of the repressed unconscious trauma and sadism of humankind. This needs to bring transformation, healing, revolution and growth. But it will take a while until we get there. Throughout 2020 we get to face our global karma. In 2021 the healing starts. As I’ve repeatedly stated: the malefic planets are strong throughout this year and in conflict with each other, while the benefic planets are either as weak as they can be (Jupiter) or in okay-ish and with moments weakened state (Venus). We don’t just see the crap astrology reflected in what’s happening in the world. It’s also reflected in our personal lives. The way in which the transits in 2020 impact you, however, depends on your personal chart. It’s not that nothing good happens in 2020. It’s just an intense and quite difficult year for the most of us.Continue
The Full Moon in Libra, also known as the Pink Moon, falls on Wednesday the eighth of April 04.35 am Amsterdam time / CEST. Full Moons are about culmination. When the Moon is full she is in complete power. This Full Moon wants to remind us to take care of the group. Libra is the cardinal air sign that is ruled by Venus. Libra is focused on connection, care, justice and equality. Libra wants everyone to be able to receive health care, no matter what age, gender or cultural background. Libra wants everyone to feel save, seen and acknowledged. This Full Moon reminds us that every single human soul is beautiful and that everyone has human rights.Continue
On March 22nd Saturn moves from Capricorn into Aquarius. Saturn is the most outer planet visible to our naked eye. Saturn takes about twenty nine years to travel through all twelve signs of the zodiac and travels through every sign for about two and a half years.
So with Saturn moving from Capricorn into Aquarius we will enter a whole new chapter of our lives, so to speak. However, because a retrograde period is coming up for Saturn, he switches signs a couple of times this year. This makes the ‘overall transit’ quite interesting. Saturn will be in Aquarius for about three months from March 22nd to July. Saturn stations retrograde in May, moves back into Capricorn in the start of July, starts moving direct again at the end of September and enters Aquarius again halfway through December.
This means that we get a taste of what Saturn in Aquarius brings for about three months: March 22nd till July 2nd. Then we go back to ‘what we know’ (the energy of Saturn in Capricorn that we have had for the last years). And on the 17th of December we enter our new chapter definitively with no way back; but knowing a bit what to expect because we had a taste of it. Saturn will stay in Aquarius until the beginning of March 2023.Continue

Before I start with the upcoming Lunar cycle I will give you a quick recap of the last few weeks, because this is the first article in this series, so we will have a starting point.Continue
