DECEMBER 21, 2020

NOTE:  as of the  16th if the night is clear, look to the southwest and

you will be able to see Saturn and Jupiter  

THE Grand Conjunction is when Pluto is hanging out with Jupiter.  The last time it was this close together was at the birth of Christ over 2000 thousand years ago - in a recent article my friend Karen sent me some information that really describes what's happening in our skies on the 21st of December:

Another note to remember is that Pluto also is "hanging out with Jupiter and Saturn, adding to the mix.  

On December 21, we have a major astrological event occurring. It’s called the Grand Conjunction, charting our collective astrological path for the next two decades. Astrology-heads are keying into this date because it could be a bumpy ride when Saturn and Jupiter move into airy Aquarius and out of earthy Capricorn.

Before we get into what this all might mean in detail, first a few notes on terms. 

A conjunction means the lining up of together--either for enhanced good or ill depending on the combination. For example, a conjunction of Saturn (Planet of Time) and Pluto (Darkness) – something hidden, tends to be rough and malefic, while Venus (Love) and Jupiter (Expansion) tends to be auspicious.

A Grand Conjunction is what happens when the planets of Jupiter and Saturn in particular meet up. (Because they are very large planets and also part of the outer planets). Together they are known as the Great Chronocrator, meaning the Markers of Time, and they have always been associated with epochal social change when they coincide on their orbital perambulations.

Part of the reason for the “social change” aspect of this conjunction is that the energies of Saturn and Jupiter are a massive case study in tensions. Saturn is the task-masker and father-figure who taps us on the hand and wants us to play by the rules. Jupiter is our expansive, charming, slightly intoxicated uncle at family dinner who inspires us to be more, do more and share more. 

The last time Jupiter and Pluto met up in Capricorn was in 1771, during the Russian Plague (yep). This transit happens every 13 years in a different sign and serves as a marker for cultural changeConjunctions of Jupiter and Pluto recur in periods of 12 to 13 years. The previous Jupiter-Pluto conjunction happened on December 11, 2007, and the one before that on December 2, 1994. After 2020, the next Jupiter-Pluto conjunction will occur on February 4, 2033, and the one following that on April 12, 2045.

My friend Elizabeth also gave us more  information on this the New Moon on December 14th 2020 @ 8:16 a.m. PST. The New Moon is in Sagittarius and what's important about the New Moon placement in Sag is having to do with our beliefs and what we judge and what to expand. The New Moon is important because at this New Moon is conjunct Mercury which is asking us to speak simply but at the same time being precise about what you are asking for because at this particular New Moon one can manifest anything in our lives; but it must be specific, while at the same time being specific and simply stated.  Most of the time we do a lot of talking but our intention must be clear and not convoluted. The Sun, Moon and Mercury and the South Node can bring things from the past into the present and/or you can leave them in the past. Again, you must be clear about what you want as this sextile also includes the North Node in Gemini.

On December17th the New Moon moves away and will move into Aquarius and will conjunct Saturn.


Exact on Decmber 21st

December 19th is the actual day that Jupiter joins Saturn in Aquarius.  This is a big deal - we've been in the dawn of Aquarius for the past 400 years (since 1623) and at that time it wasn't exact. This time December 21st at the Winter Solstice is exact (Saturn 00.8 

degrees while Jupiter is 00.8 degrees) forming the Grand Conjunction of two large outer planets. This will occur at 7:51 a.m. PST. What this means is Jupiter equals "Expansion"

while Saturn equals Restriction - Jupiter is the gas while Saturn is the brakes which equals "checks and balance" within our government and those governments throughout the world also our personal lives as well. 

Right at the beginning of the month we see Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto conjunct (the Three Planets forming the "Star of Bethlehem" over 2000 years ago).  Jupiter is expansion, Saturn is restriction while Pluto is the exposure of something hidden that must come to light).

So what we're seeing here is reconstruction:

Let me give you an example of how this works out in corporations. Facebook right now is facing an Anti-Trust lawsuit against them because their too big (restructuring) - not only are they too big but they have been guilty of harboring foreign agents with nefarious agendas (Pluto - something hidden); while at the same time they also have two other companies and (Saturn) will not allow this to happen.

The Point of this Grand Conjunction: Checks and Balances

Now let's look at our government - the current President and his cabinet have thrown out all of our freedoms, and set up a dictatorship if people speak up against this government - they are threatened with death by hanging - they have allowed certain groups to plan the 

kidnapping of Michigan's governor and have threatened leaders in Georgia as well as members of their own party who do not see "eye to eye" with this President, who still believes he was cheated. 

While for the past four years, we've seen the tearing down of all our protection, for our parks, our air quality protection is gone; and the rich get all the tax breaks while the middle and lower classes get nothing.


The president elect will change all that - he plans on bringing all our problems to the table and to RESTRUCTURE our economy, our health care; racial issues; and at the same time he has brought into his cabinet people of color - even the vice-president is first of all a woman and is a woman of color (EQUALITY)- he will reach out once again to all of our allies around the world and work on a global agenda, including all countries (BROTHERHOOD).  

While the current president didn't address the pandemic - not once issuing condolences to the thousands who have lost their loved ones; the president elect already met with the scientists, doctors and researchers in order to be ready on day one to move supplies, vaccines and ventilators and whatever else is necessary to every area in the country. This is what these three planets are helping to bring about - structural changes.

Remember, Pluto looks for honesty and exposes things done in secret; while Jupiter says "you're too large - need to reconstruct and Saturn, will not allow a company to form a monopoly or a President to become a dictator. A perfect example of these three planets is "cheating in the elections" and corruption within the government now being exposed. (Pluto) Capricorn is ruling over governments as well as corporations you can't have too much power. (This will now change as we move into Aquarius.)

These two planets (Jupiter and Saturn Conjunct) are the harbinger of the New Age. This brings about a sense of wanting to be traditional, again we must have restructure in order to bring about harmony and peace.

Uranus in Taurus squaring Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius by 6-7 Degrees right at the time they cross over from Capricorn to Aquarius .


Attachments area

Uranus in Taurus rules our economy with this square we see businesses closing, people out of work - sitting in Taurus we see an unstable economy- The square acts as a catalyst and this will become more intense; but at the same time the square makes one take action - so we will see by the end of the month the stimulus package will pass (but will not be enough).

Venus rules money, and will be in Sagittarius, which means we will end up being in more debt as a county as well as individuals.  The 21st of December will see Venus square to the Moon, this will manifest as "problems with pandemic - and especially the vaccine (not enough to go around - this administration did not take the offer that Pfizer gave them back in June.)

Sagittarius is our ideals and because Jupiter rules Sag we will see expansion.

The Sun on the 21st will still be in Sag and will be in Capricorn on the 22nd - close conjunction to Venus - lots of stuff going on behind the scenes. It's got to do with the vaccines (not enough for everybody - slower in getting to the people than expected.)

Uranus in Aquarius is destructive and sudden - will see severe weather patterns and Uranus rules "earth, wind, water and fire" Uranus in Taurus is disruption of your values and things as well as homes, lots of movement, people being displaced either by fires, floods, tornadoes, loss of jobs, loss of life - but remember that reconstruction will be happening at the same time.

Large corporations find that people working from home and having zoom meetings is working just fine and so they will be selling their large buildings while teachers will find that they can teach within as well as outside the classroom, making education available to those who are housebound.

This is a time of restructure not only within our economy but also within our government as well as our educational systems. Don't forget that we, the people will also be moving in new directions, whether because of a job offer changes one's location; or because moving is for economic reasons - we will be seeing a lot of movement, that was unplanned and, in many cases unforeseen.

The Symbols of Christmas

The Magi

December 2020

By Margaret Mary








When I was a child, we were asked what we wanted most for Christmas and many times we received that one toy (sometimes not so new but repainted and personalized like the sled I got when I was eleven).  I never forgot that sled because my Father painted my name on it, so it was the best gift ever.  






The most important part of our holiday was the story of the birth of Christ and how He came to save us, that He was the Lamb of God, who sacrificed His life for us; and that His entire life was given to show us "the Way, the Truth and the Life."


I thought that you would like to have a little deeper meaning to this sacred event, so that when the pressure of forcing people to buy, buy, buy comes next time you'll remember what the real meaning of Christmas is.


Let us start with the word Christmas - it means the Mass of Christ, the celebration of His life and especially His sacrifice of that life for us.  So when picking out a Christmas Card, keep in mind that you want to celebrate the event with others by wishing them Joy, which by the way, is His keynote.  The song "Joy to the World" is the keynote of Jesus.


The Magi came to honor the birth of Christ.  Who were they?  Were they Christians?  How did they know of His coming?


The Magi were known as priest-kings at the time of Christ's birth and they came from Ethiopia and the East. Of course they were not Christian as that word developed long after the death of Our Lord.  They were astronomers and astrologers as well as rulers of their lands - much like the Pharaohs of Egypt and the Mayans of South America, who could and still can, read the sky like a map.  They also were part of the mystery schools and were aware that a certain conjunction of planets around the year A. D. 56/57 would mark the birth of a great avatar. As the three planets began to draw closer to one another they began their journey from various remote places. Can you imagine, the faith and the will that drove these three Kings to cross vast areas of desert and land on camels, to find this new-born Child?  And yet they came from three different directions and met at the palace of King Herod, asking him, of all people, where they could find this "future King of the Jews".   Put yourself in Herod's position, he was the king of the Jews and now some usurper, who might or might not be born as yet, was planning on replacing him!  He didn't know of the child but he certainly was not wasting any time in finding out where he was living.  In fact, he immediately sent his soldiers out with orders to kill any child under the age of two years old - just to make sure that the usurper would be destroyed.

The Magi


Melchior, Casper and Balthazar were their names



The Magi eventually found Jesus as did the local shepherds.  The shepherds were informed by the angels of the birth of Jesus.  They heard the music of their instruments and followed the sound and were given the news of the birth of Christ.  As you know, there was no room at the local inns and Joseph and Mary were forced to find a manger.  Jesus certainly came into the humblest birthplace, among the cattle and sheep, revered by the shepherds.  He certainly wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth and a palace for his home. No, He was born among the people, who He would live among and serve, teach and heal and even raise from the dead.


When the Magi approached the cave where the manger was the conjunction of stars was directly over the landscape.  They each brought a gift to Joseph and Mary of Frankincense, Myrrh and Gold. They also informed Joseph and Mary that King Herod was also aware of Jesus' birth.  The Frankincense and Myrrh would be used to form a "ring pass not" around the manger in order to protect the child Jesus.  Today, Frankincense and Myrrh are used in High Mass in both the Roman and Eastern Churches.  The priest will circle the periphery of the entire church with the incense burners sending the incense into every corner before the mass begins. The Gold was given so that they could escape Herod and flee to Egypt and India until the threat was no more.


The Holy Family, Joseph, Mary and Jesus represent the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, or Divine Wisdom, the Mother of All.  Joseph, the Carpenter, was the provider and protector under the First Ray of God's Holy Will.  He would be the Active Principle, a First Ray quality of the Father.  Mary, represents the Divine Mother, the receiver, and the cohesive love/wisdom of the Third Ray of Active Intelligence.  Whereas Jesus, represented the Son, who brings the light of the Father and the love of the Mother into the Golden Robe of the Light of the World, the Son under the Second Ray of Divine Love/Wisdom.




Like all children of light here on earth who are sons and daughters of God, it is the Soul that lies above our mental bodies that is the mediator between the upper triad of the Higher self, representing the Father, and the Causal body enfolding both the Higher Self and the Soul, or Holy Christ Self - representing the Divine Mother, and the Soul or Holy Christ Self, representing the Son - the light of the world.  The Soul, in turn, is over our three lower bodies i.e. mental, emotional, etheric/physical.  As the Soul is the mediator between the upper divine triad and the lower triad, so is the human the mediator between divinity (all of Hierarchy - Cosmic, Solar and Planetary) and the three lower kingdoms (animal, plant and mineral, and elemental). The Holy Family is the reflection or the Holy Trinity and is significant in teaching us about our place within the Divine Plan of God.


The next symbol we'll look at is the Star of Bethlehem, which is of course, the result of the conjunction between three major planets during the year A.D.56/57.  The star has always been the symbol of the Divine.


The Star Tetrahedron

This star tetrahedron is seen in many ancient and modern churches and temples and is significant in understanding the working of triangles.  I can give you the example of King David, who used the star tetrahedron as the symbol of the Jewish faith "The Star of David". 


The Star of David



Remember, in order for David to write the psalms, he had to become that symbol.  Again, it is one of the most ancient teachings of the lower triangle pointing upward towards God or the Higher Self, while the upper triangle representing God reaching toward man in the descending triangle.

In the World Service between nineteen eighty and two thousand and nine, we placed the triangle around our upper chakras from the Heart (the base of the triangle) out around our shoulders to 

Sitting Within the Star Tetrahedron or

Star of David

While Doing the 

World Service


above our heads (the point of the triangle). We'd sit in the middle as the Buddha or Christ Self, and this triangle would rise out of the heart and move upward - at the same time the descending triangle would move downwards from the Higher Self, forming a star tetrahedron on the level of the Soul or Holy Christ Self.  We would then be sitting at the level of the Christ and at this level where David wrote his Psalms, we would do our Prayers of the World Service. At the present time, the need of the hour is for group prayer and meditation for World Peace.


The Ascension of the Christ

From His birth until his death, Jesus was a living example of the disciple on the Path of Initiation, transforming and transfiguring Himself, which led Him to the cross and to the resurrection until He ascended back to His Father.  He left us His blueprint and the map to the homeward path.

So during this Holy and Sacred Season, take a step into the light of your Soul and leave the clanging and the din behind you, for a few moments each day.  Learn to be silent and in that silence find your peace - the Peace beyond understanding. 

May you have a Joyous and Peaceful Christmas and may 2021 bring you Good Health, Happiness and a Deeper Understanding of Who You really Are.

In the light of the Reappearance of the Christ,


Margaret Mary
