One of the most highly anticipated events of the decade is coming up on the 21st of December, the auspicious date stands out as a powerful day due to both the Winter Solstice and a very rare alignment taking place this year known as the Great Conjunction in Aquarius.
This rare planetary connection is incredibly powerful, and if you’re at all aware of astrology and spirituality, you’ll most likely have heard it being 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, (nearly 400 years ago).
The Great Conjunction symbolizes a huge change for humanity. It represents the beginning of a significant shift in our collective worldview. The conjunction does happen every couple of decades; however this particular alignment we are anticipating on December 21st ushers in an even bigger, more dramatic shift for our planet.
That’s because, for the last two centuries, Jupiter and Saturn have only been meeting 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 infinite potential endless possibilities. This represents a big 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 world view is changing, so does 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 the Earth energy which is much more focused on material possessions and comes from a more self-centered standpoint.
Under the air energy of Aquarius, we will be more community-focused and revolutionary. We will look to smaller organizations and support more small-scale local businesses as opposed to huge organizations, helping local communities to thrive.
When we have balance, we can focus more on what benefits the collective, seeing how we are all a 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, it symbolizes the beginning of a ‘return to the light’ once it is over, and we start the cycle of longer days and shorter nights heading towards the summer solstice again.
How does this apply to you and your own life?
You can channel the energies of this powerful event in your own life in the following ways.
- Think about where you may be too attached or ruled by material items and possessions.
- Where in your own life can you become more heart-centered?
- Reassess your goals and keep your own 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 your thoughts have and be aware of where you are flowing your energy.
Your thoughts are seeds; it’s time to become very aware of what seeds 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, authentic power.
You don’t have to “try” to be positive or force yourself to create your reality. You simply need to be true to yourself, listen to your higher self, and naturally allow your vibration to 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 assist in bringing higher frequencies into the planet and raising consciousness, through our emotional states. If we are vibrating at 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 surrounding us.
December 21, 2020, is an auspicious and powerful day for setting clear and heart-centered intentions. A perfect day to journal, meditate and perform any kind of manifestation ritual to bring into your life goals, desires, and realities for you and the world.
