Whatever particular challenges you're going through these days, the universe does have a plan, even if it seems dark and foggy right now.
2020 is the year of a very intense conjunction. Usually a 2 planet conjunction--Saturn and Jupiter, every 20 years--Pluto, the planet of repressed wounds, karma and transformation joins the party for much of the year giving it that extra intense and heavy feel.
The 3 planets are dancing around each other, but most of the action takes place the 2nd half of 2020. Yup, that's right, we're still in the appetizer stage. Last week Jupiter joined the party when it conjuncted Pluto.
Jupiter is the planet of abundance, optimism, opportunity. But like all universal energies, it has its shadow side: exaggeration, temptation and over-indulgence. When Pluto is involved, karmic baggage is part of it too.
Some tips for leveraging Jupiter's gifts (which we can all use right now): Jupiter rewards action, when that action is taken by your best self. Sure, you can give in to fear, as you don't know how you're going to pay bills next month. And that carton of ice cream/bottle of wine/reality show looks really good. But maybe you can take that one step toward pivoting to something new and better.
All it takes is one tiny turtle step in the right direction and Jupiter will be by your side. Oh, and a willingness to commit to some hard work--this is happening in Capricorn, after all.
