CAPRICORN time. Ruled by Saturn, the planet/ God of Time, reality, testing, maturity, old age, taxes, senators, seniority, Satan and The Grim Reaper. The Sun is on the Tropic of Capricorn 23.26 degrees South of the Equator. The Tropic Of Capricorn has many countries worldwide which it runs through. Five in Africa, North of Alice Springs, Queensland, Australia and four countries in Brasil.
All Capricorns are going to have an amazing year starting with a Solar Eclipse on the 25th/26th at 4+ degrees Capricorn I ‘ll write about that separately. Especially those Old Gruff Goats and Goatees born January 10-16 this is a huge year for you Capricorn’s with planets at 19-25 degrees being hit by the Saturn Pluto conjunction exact on January 12, 2020.
You know SATURN and PLUTO are forcing the old you to die and be reborn, unless you are truly following your soul’s path. Pluto can bring power, rewards, riches and Saturn brings patience structure and discipline. An entirely new you and a new world is being forged deep in the bowels of the earth.
Those born in 1982-1983 are in the thick of this as an entire group of you incarnated under a very heavy Saturn Pluto conjunction in LIBRA the sign of marriage traditionally and relationships.
The Winter Solstice chart is used to describe the next 3 months into Spring of 2020.
It’s a Capricorn stellium overload with Sun, Jupiter, South Node, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto, and Eros all in Capricorn. Here’s the chart. As you can see, everything is in the 4th house of home, childhood, the womb and traditionally the placement of Cancer. This indicates that all power comes from within, from a deeply internalized womb space. The void is not empty from full of potential.
Saturn rules the 7 planetary objects. In the Tarot Saturn is Associated with Arcana #15 The Devil. There are 7 little devil planets all nestled together
Chiron at 1 Aries is almost at the world point the beginning of the Zodiac and very powerful is in square to the Newborn Capricorn Sun and Jupiter. There is vulnerability and defensiveness that is tiring to uphold. There may be hesitancy around new beginnings even though we are starting up a whole new decade.

This is also Saturnalia
Happy Saturnalia! The ancient Roman festival on December 17-23. Make a sacrifice to Saturn. Role reversals of masters serving slaves, gift-giving, constant partying and wax or pottery figures called sigillaria were made. The Roman poet Catullus said it was “the best of days.”
Saturn’s metal is lead. Saturnine herbs are asafoetida, valerian, garlic, rosemary, dill, St. John’s wort, Solomon’s seal, hyssop and patchouli.
During Saturnalia the people wore a special cap called a pileus made from felt which signified a freed Slave. It was also a bronze military helmet in the 5th Century BC. A similar one is used today in Albania and Kosovo.
