One of the most highly anticipated events of the decade comes on December 21st, the auspicious date stands out as a strong day due to both the Winter Solstice and a very rare alignment occurring this year known as the Grand Conjunction in Aquarius.
This rare planetary connection is incredibly powerful, and if you know anything about astrology and spirituality, you’ve probably heard it talked about with great excitement in certain circles.
The Great Conjunction refers to the alignment of the planets Jupiter and Saturn, which will meet for the first time since 2000 and in the closest alignment since the year 1623, (almost 400 years ago).
The Great Conjunction symbolizes a great change for humanity. It represents the beginning of a significant shift in our collective worldview. The conjunction does not happen every few decades; however this particular alignment we are anticipating on December 21st has led to an even greater and more dramatic change for our planet.
This is because for the last two centuries, Jupiter and Saturn have been meeting only in earth signs, but this year, they will meet in the air sign of Aquarius.
These planets will also be aligning at zero degrees of Aquarius, which is important because zero symbolizes endless potential infinite possibilities. This represents a major energy shift for all of us, individually, and as a collective.
The fact that Jupiter and Saturn are aligning in Aquarius represents the beginning of a new era of higher consciousness and limitless possibilities – The Age of Aquarius.
Why is this so important?
The Age of Aquarius is the highly anticipated heart-centered era of greater harmony, peace and higher frequencies.
Our worldview is changing, also society, and the way we all choose to approach our lives. The Aquarian age is about abundance, community and love for humanity as opposed to Earth energy which is much more focused on material possessions and comes from a more self-centered point of view.
Under the air energy of Aquarius, we will be more community focused and revolutionary. We will look at smaller organizations and support more local small scale businesses as opposed to large organisations, helping local communities to thrive.
When we have balance, we can focus more on what benefits the collective, seeing how we are all part of the Universe and connected as one human race, rather than focusing purely on our own needs. We can come together to create a peaceful, loving and compassionate world.
The fact that this conjunction takes place on the day of the Winter Solstice is also important.
As December 21st will be the shortest day and longest night of the year, this symbolizes the beginning of a ‘return to the light’ once it ends, and we begin the cycle of longer days and shorter nights towards the summer solstice.
How does this apply to you and your own life?
You can clear the energies of this powerful event in your own life in the following ways.
- Think about where you might be too attached or driven by material objects and possessions.
- Where in your own life can you become more heart-centered?
- Reevaluate your goals and keep your energetic vibrational frequency high.
The best thing you can do to prepare for this momentous event and the years that follow is to bring yourself as best you can into spiritual alignment.
Now is the time to remember the power of your thoughts and be aware of where your energy is flowing from.
Your thoughts are seeds; it is time to become very aware of what seed you are planting.
This is not about great effort or attempts to manifest, but more about bringing yourself into a state of pure energetic alignment so that you can authentically and naturally manifest your reality from that high vibration.
Aligning yourself is easier said than done! It is a process and it requires your willingness to surrender and love yourself through it as you step into your true and authentic power.
You don’t have to “try” to be positive or force yourself to create your reality. You simply have to be true to yourself, listen to your higher self and naturally let your vibration rise along with the high frequencies generated by the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn.
If each of us concentrates on aligning ourselves, we can contribute to the whole as a collective.
We can help bring higher frequencies into the planet and raise consciousness, through our emotional states. If we are vibrating with love, joy, passion, appreciation and happiness, this high energy can contribute to the frequency of the entire planet!
Our own energies are higher, brighter and more powerful as is the energy around us.
December 21, 2020, is an auspicious and powerful day to set clear, heart-centered intentions. A perfect day to journal, meditate and perform any kind of manifestation ritual to bring into your life the goals, desires and realities for you and the world.
