During the month of January, there is some especially powerful Jyotish. Earlier in the month, six planets clustered in Sagittarius. This type of conjunction is rare and difficult to analyze, but has the potential to change the world. While this conjunction is challenging, some Jyotishis have referred to it as the spark that signifies transformation. The Jyotish was especially difficult from January 8-14, as Saturn conjoined Mercury (and Pluto as per Western astrology) in the last 2 degrees of Sagittarius. Also, there was a lunar eclipse on January 10.
Planets are especially unstable when transiting the final degree of a sign, and Saturn will be transiting the final degree of Sagittarius and the first degree of Capricorn from now until about the end of January. It crosses into Capricorn on January 24, the same day as the new moon (and also the scheduled starting date for the Senate hearing!). As a result, things have been, and will continue to be, rather shaky.
An example of this is the situation with the U.S., Iran, and Iraq. On an individual level, during this time, it is wise to keep the peace, avoid conflicts, and be careful in all areas of life over for the rest of the month and the first half of February. Conflicts, etc. that get created during this time could extend into the future.
The good news is that after Saturn transits into Capricorn, it will be in a much happier position. For the next five years, Saturn will transit its own signs and should provide significantly more positive results. Also, Jupiter is currently transiting its own sign of Sagittarius, producing positive results. Jupiter remains in Sagittarius until March 30, then moves into Capricorn for 3 months, shifts back into Sagittarius on June 30, and stays in Sagittarius until November 20. The upcoming times, where Jupiter is in Sagittarius and Saturn is in Capricorn, are especially auspicious. So 2020 has the potential to be an incredibly positive and transformative year!
Interestingly enough, numerology predicts it to be a transformative year as well. Click here to see the World Numerology forecast from Hans Decoz.
