2020 comes with a Capricorn stellium, with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto touring the earth sign, Capricorn. Saturn and Pluto already conjuncted in January 2020. Now it's time for Jupiter and Pluto to conjunct!
Jupiter in Astrology
The core energy for Jupiter is expansive. Jupiter expands everything it touches. Jupiter wants to be positive, so this planet does try to make what it expands good. Sometimes, it does expand on the bad though! The difference with Jupiter is if you put in the effort, you can turn the bad around much more easily than with other planets. This makes Jupiter a planet of opportunity, even under hard aspects.
Pluto in Astrology
The core energy for Pluto is transforming. Pluto wants everything to have depth, to be serious and focused, and to get to the heart of any matter. It wants to understand fully, find solutions, and create something new that will last forever. Pluto can be unrelenting and vicious, but it's always for a purpose. Pluto wants us to improve, evolve, grow, and transform, to be the phoenix rising from the ashes, and to have incredible strength of will.
Jupiter Conjunct Pluto Astrology
In the natal chart, Jupiter conjunct Pluto shows you're someone who is strong and focused, but in a way that is easier to manage than when Pluto is conjunct other planets. You can have great instincts, you can know exactly how to maneuver through challenges, and you're someone who likely doesn't wallow in defeat. You can see opportunity everywhere, and have the confidence to actually do something with it instead of letting it pass you by.
In aspect to your natal chart, transit Jupiter conjunct your natal Pluto can be a time of transforming, problem solving, and being serious about something, and you can find more personal power and take more control in your life. Transit Pluto conjunct your natal Jupiter can be a time where you become much more invested in your beliefs, make transformations that open up opportunities and allow you to expand, and you can grow through your experiences in life.
In transit, Jupiter conjunct Pluto makes us crave expansion, growth, and we strive to be better, do better, achieve, and succeed. We can focus on what needs to be done and do it, even if it's a challenge, but we do have to make sure we're not being ruthless about it. As long as we remain considerate, we can make big things happen, and push it through from a combination of sheer will and a little luck. We may identify much more strongly with our beliefs under this aspect, and they can serve to inspire us to take action (for better or worse). We can strive to take power on a personal level with areas where we may have lacked power in recent years; on a worldwide level, we may see some major geopolitical events (I totally recommend checking out this article by Jessica Adams for that).
Jupiter-Pluto Conjunction of 2020
The conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto goes exact 3 times in 2020: April 4th at 24 degrees Capricorn, June 30th at 24 degrees Capricorn, and November 12th at 22 degrees Capricorn. Aspects for you will likely be felt between 20 and 26 degrees of:
Capricorn - conjunction
Virgo, Taurus - trine (positive)
Scorpio, Pisces - sextile (positive)
Aries, Libra - square (challenging)
Cancer - opposition (challenging)
If you've got a Capricorn point being hit, that point will be getting some of the biggest astrology it'll ever get, so definitely make the most of it! It may also have been hit by Saturn (you may want to check out the article on the Saturn-Pluto conjunction), so it's full-on focus for that point. Anything in Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, or Pisces is getting hit by a beneficial aspect, and this can be an incredible period of opportunity for that point, and one where you can make a lot of progress and see things through.
Anything in Aries, Cancer, or Libra gets a hard aspect, and this can show you're in a period where you're being challenged in some way with whatever point is being hit. There may be opposition you have to work through and internal issues you have to face. A profound transformation is likely needed, and this can lead you down a whole new road.
