Conjunction Submunction, Part 2

In Part 1 of Conjunction Submunction I wrote: “I think the majority of the interest (in the conjunction) comes from people who still dabble in astrology. “OMG, Jupiter is in the house of Saturn? OMG!” (I know nothing about astrology, so that is clearly made up and if I offend any astrology people with my ignorance, well, you deserve it.)”

As things usually go, I received shortly thereafter what a “real” astrologer thinks it means, to wit:

“At 12:21 p.m. CT the Great Conjunction forms between Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, showing us where innovation, community, and opportunity intersect. This is a rare occurrence as Jupiter and Saturn meet every 20 years and are doing so in air signs after over 200 years of being in earth signs. This conjunction is all about doing the work it takes to be free — individually, and collectively.

“Saturn is a harsh taskmaster, especially in a fixed sign like Aquarius. Aquarius energy can be full of peace, friendship, and humanity, but do not mistake the other end of the spectrum. Aquarius likes to connect, but exclusion is the flipside of inclusion and as our world begins to meld in ways that many don’t like, we may find many rebelling against the process of creating a humane, global community. This is where we learn the tough lessons of being human. Do what you say you will or stay silent. Rewards will not be given to lazy thinkers under these skies. If you’re dedicated to being silly, you’ll get goofy results. Edit and enhance your network with a discerning eye. Build friendships genuinely yet intelligently.”

So, now you know. (I always wanted to know where innovation, community, and opportunity intersected. I thought it was in Silicon Valley, but now I understand it is up in the sky . . . wtf?)


  1. Sooooo glad you shared this!! I would have been lost without this profound guidance related to the “Great Conjunction” (at least as presented by this individual).

    You can now move into 2021 knowing you served a deep and meaningful purpose.

    • Damn I wish you were closer. I’d love to sit on the porch (or next to the fire) and chat with you over a beer or glass of wine. I’d even buy.

      My wish for this season is that 2021 sucks less. That’s about as optimistic as I can get right now.

      Cheers, Nan!

  2. I suspect more people spew astrology jibber-jabber with ease than can recognize a single constellation in the night sky. Astrology rains upon the oblivious, soap box charlatans gush astrological guidance with hubris of evangelical impunity. Sigh.
