ecember 21. Winter Solstice. And if I have to believe the astronomers, it’s a very special one. Tonight, Saturn and Jupiter will be so close together they might look like a double planet to our bare eyes.

It’s called the Great Conjunction.

The 2020 great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will be the closest since 1623 and the closest observable since 1226Earthsky.org

For the first time in 400 years. Twin planets. A cosmic kiss.

The two biggest worlds in our solar system match, merge and mate.

And the beauty is, we can see it with our bare eyes. We just have to look in the south-west direction (Europe). And if we look with an amateur-telescope, we can see both planets in one view.

Jupiter with his four clearest moons and Saturn with his rings will be visible in one go. One frame. One moment in time.

A special event, not to be matched until March 15, 2080.

I’ll surely be too old to catch that one!

Astrology

Where there’s astronomy, there’s of course also astrology. Let me tell you upfront, I’m not an expert. But I’m interested. Girl, I’m interested! And I feel something. Not clearly. Not exactly knowing what I feel.

But that doesn't matter to me. Astrology people and lightworkers have their purpose. I have different talents. Who cares?

So let me share a little with you of what I’m reading about it. Amelia Quint for instance calls it “The Biggest Astrological Event of Our Lifetime.”

“Between a global pandemic and inspiring activism, 2020 has already had its share of life-changing moments. But the stars are just getting warmed up. What happens now will have ripple effects for decades to come.” — Amelia Quint

My interpretation of what the astrologers tell me goes like this. Jupiter is associated with health, wealth, and having a good time. Saturn favors strict responsibility and setting limits. And now they line up.

Well, those of you who follow me know that I’m working on the Great Transition, the Radical Future.

And this conjunction might be a great moment to get everything aligned in our personal lives as well.

  • Playfully exploring is our Jupiter side. Healthy bodies and a full flow of all life’s value. Rivers of clean water, clean air, love, and money will flow abundantly beyond the transition
  • Care and responsibility are part of our Saturn side. We do have to figure out how to be daring enough to take up our rightful space in every moment of our lives. And at the same time, leave space for other humans and other species on this planet as well
  • It might help to stop feeling guilt and shame. Those emotions only limit us. While we need to explore the grand, beautiful beings we are and train ourselves to connect with diversity. And inclusivity.

Happy exploring, my friends. The planets show us the way.

Imagination Is Gold

One last thing, before I go back to my hibernation. How vivid is your imagination when you hear news like this? Mine is going wild. It’s just the mythical magic of solstices and everything connected.

So, I’ll be musing and drawing and writing vibrant, suspenseful stories about Jupiter, the God of the Sky. And his sacred tree. The wise old oak tree. And then Saturn with his visible ring. Magical value for any artist, my friends.

Two powerful Gods kissing. That fact alone fuels my imagination!

“I am enough of the artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

— Albert Einstein

Happy exploring astronomy and astrology, my friends. And happy creating all kinds of art. It’ll fuel more and more and more imagination in everyone around us. And imagination encircles the world.

If you want to connect, you can find me somewhere on this beautiful planet. My hands in the soil and my gaze focused on the stars. Or you can find me via Linktree.
