Happy Solstice, Yule and Great Conjunction, everyone! The Solstice became exact at 5:02 AM New York time (10:02 GMT) on Monday, December 21, which is the same time as the sun moved into the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn. The Great Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn became exact at 4:26 PM New York time (21:26 GMT) on the same day.

We have been immersed in a super-powerful energetic gateway in the days leading up to this Solstice, since 12/12 and the Sagittarius Eclipse two days afterward. It's been the final grand energetic portal of this momentous year of 2020, as our bodies and spirits are being further refined in preparation for the dawning of the sacred year of 2021. Many Lightworkers have been reporting exceptionally high levels of Ascension symptoms over the past few weeks (including yours truly). Stay hydrated, ground, and hang in there!!

Let's first discuss the significance of this 'Great Conjunction' between Saturn and Jupiter.

Jupter and Saturn (along with Pluto) have spent most of 2020 in the fatherly, practical, strong-willed and sometimes stubborn Capricorn. The Saturn and Pluto conjunction on January 12, 2020 set the stage for a frustrating and restrictive experience of 2020 for most of the planet. COVID exploded into a pandemic soon after and life was never the same.

It thus should be a cause for (at least reserved) optimism as Jupiter and Saturn met in this Great Conjunction at 0 degrees in the fixed air sign of Aquarius on this Solstice. Jupiter and Saturn meet every approximately 20 years, however this will be the closest that they have been to one another since 1226. They are currently appearing so close together from our perspective here on Earth that it appears as one star in the sky, something that hasn't occurred since 1623. This astronomical illusion is dubbed the 'Christmas Star' or the 'Star of Bethlehem'.

This massively important astrological event will set the stage for the energy of 2021—and really, for the remainder of the decade. The theme of 2021 will be the push-pull between the desire of the Earth's peoples for freedom and economic sovereignty with the desire of governments to maintain control, order and the status quo. We will also be seeing a technological revolution directly in the public eye over the next few years the likes of which we haven't seen since perhaps the days of Atlantis.

One of the biggest questions for us as a human race over the next several decades, as this Ascension process unfolds, will be what the role of technology becomes on our planet. We've already reached a point where technology has become a massive threat to public health, with things like 5G, GWEN, Smartmeters and WiFi keeping us inundated with harmful radiation, causing free radicals to abound and cause cellular damage.

Jupiter and Saturn are known to be soulmates. The former grows and expands whatever it comes into contact with; while the latter restricts. Thus, these two 'lovers' form a push-pull energetically when they conjunct. As Aquarius rules technology that is used on a broad scale--like the Internet and all of the above technologies that I listed—we will see this constant push-pull over the next 20 years between technology that restricts and technology that increases quality of life.

Aquarius also rules the broader rhetoric in society, as well as group and political ideologies. Thus, we will see a constant push-pull between the demands of the public for freedom in all ways and the desire of the 'old guard' to further restrict freedom in order to keep power while sucking even more economic resources from the proletariat. A study has shown that between 1975 and 2018, a sickening $50 trillion was sucked from the bottom 90% income-earners up to the top 1%.

This Great Conjuction will also spell the beginning of the end for dogma in all ways (including political and religious). Over the next decade, the Christ Consciousness will become even more apparent on the planet as more and more people awaken to their true nature as spiritual beings playing the role of humans for a temporary period of time. Unity and love will spread across the planet as the old dualistic 'separation consciousness' that was a marker of the Age of Pisces fades away. In the short term, it may seem that the separation consciousness gets worse as some people choose to dig their heals in ideologically, however at the same time there will be millions and millions of people turning their focus further toward Unity and spreading the Light.

This conjunction is also the fifth major energetic marker in our Earth's march into the Age of Aquarius/Ascension. The first was the Harmonic Convergence of 1986; the second was the turn of the millennium; the third was end of the Mayan Calendar in 2012; the fourth was the Great American Eclipse/Particle Convergence in 2017; and the fifth is this Great Conjunction of 2020.

It's as if collectively we put our big toe into the ocean that is the Age of Aquarius with the 1986 Harmonic Convergence; and with each of the energetic events that I described above, we have put more of our collective feet into that ocean. This planetary Age of Aquarius lasts 2,156 years, so we need to remember that we are only 8 years in at this point. The Ascension will be completed, but it will take time.

Although many had predicted a large and disruptive solar flare or geomagnetic storm to occur on 12/21, it did not happen nor is it likely to happen in the coming days or weeks. This is an energetic event and is felt energetically. The sun has been producing incredibly strong frequencies in the days up to today and today as well. Personally, I have been feeling pulsating waves of energy running through my head, especially when laying down. A constant pressure on my head over the past few days has also bee one of my body's indications of the immensely strong energies.

Millions of Lightworkers meditated on the New Earth on December 21, and there's no doubt it made a significant benevolent impact on the Earth Grid.

Throughout the remainder of the Age of Aquarius—and especially during the rocky transition period that will be the theme for the next two decades—these mass meditations will continue to be a crucial tool for us Lightworkers in tipping the energetic scale to assure that the Ascension continues as planned.


I am going to focus this article on the significance of the Winter Solstice/Yule, since most of my readers are in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Pagan traditions, Yule is a festival celebrating the longest night of the year, and the return of the sun (as after the Solstice the daylight gets just a little bit longer each day). So, the Winter Solstice is seen not as a time of darkness but of rebirth!

It's a good thing to ask yourself how you can become reborn. How can you be reborn into a new version of yourself?

Christmas, which of course is really based on the ancient tradition of Yule, is a celebration. People tend to be more jolly and grateful around Christmastime, which is just how the Pagans have been celebrating Yule for thousands of years. The Solstice Time is a great time to be extra grateful for all of the blessings in your life and to place your thoughts on exactly how you want to see your 2021 go. Who do you want to be in 2021? What do you want your life to look like in 2021? How do you want your 2021 to feel?

2021 is a 5-year in numerology, so we want to be flexible and take advantage of opportunities. I'll have a preview of 2021 in my upcoming Full Moon in Cancer article this week.


Now that the sun has moved into the cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn, we feel a renewed sense of drive to accomplish things and make positive changes in our lives. Write down who you want to be by the end of 2021 and make the positive changes in your day-to-day life that will start to get you from where you are now to where you want to be.

Wishing you a wonderful Solstice and Yule as we collectively celebrate the return of the sun! And a happy Summer Solstice to my friends in the Southern Hemisphere as well :)

With Love,

Matthew John
