The Silver Lining

of 2020’s Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn Lineup
By Lalia Wilson

It’s been a difficult year on this planet, and we still have one month to go. Astrologically we have had a triple conjunction of Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn, the first time these three planets have combined in the cardinal earth sign for over a thousand years. (And we will be happy to wait a long time before going through this again.)

Way back in 2008 Pluto moved into Capricorn for a 16 year period that started on November 26 and will last until January 20, 2024. Pluto is the heaviest influence among the traditional 10 planets of astrology, symbolizing intense emotions, systemic changes, death, and survival. In tarot, Pluto is usually equated with the Judgement card, a card of rebirth. On December 19, 2017, Saturn moved into Capricorn for about three years total if you count the short excursion into Aquarius from March 21, 2020, until July 1, 2020; it moved back into Capricorn until December 17, 2020. The triple conjunction was completed when Jupiter moved into Capricorn on December 2, 2019, and remains there until December 19, 2020. So in the tarot, this is a combination of The Wheel of Fortune (Jupiter), The World (Saturn), Judgment (Pluto), and The Devil (Capricorn). It's been a time of destroying governments, governmental systems, old infrastructure, and much more. But what good has come from this alignment?

As the years pass we will look back and see many more positives of this time period, but here are some positives that are visible now. This pileup in Capricorn, a cardinal earth sign associated with mountains, rocks, and minerals, has brought many into an awareness of the mineral kingdom. Here are some books and decks to lead you into attunement to the mineral kingdom.
