Saturn Conjunct Pluto. Jupiter Conjunct Saturn.
An Epic Year Calling for One Thing Only: RESPECT.

Dear Friend and Reader:

In 2020 we have not one but two conjunctions that mark the turn of a generation, and of an era in history. On Jan. 12, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn form their once per 33-year conjunction. Then on Dec. 21. 2020, Jupiter and Saturn, both now in Aquarius, form a conjunction in the first degree of that sign.

A Turning Point Like No Other

For this reason, 2020 is a turning point year like no other. That demands something that is rare to find in our era of history: RESPECT. That means self-respect above all else, but also healthy deference to the power and majesty of this extraordinary movement of the planets in their courses.

This is expert astrology like we’ve never experienced in this century, or long before.

Combined with the Pluto return of the United States, there will be many markers in national and global history. But what about you personally? How do you deal with any sense of uncertainty, instability or enforced changes?

I have covered 2020 astrology from several angles in must-read INTELLIGENCE, extended written readings that are as gripping as any adventure novel. (INTELLIGENCE also includes a review of 2019.) If you have already purchased INTELLIGENCE, you do not need to purchase it again.

How To Build a Bridge

RESPECT picks up where INTELLIGENCE leaves off. I will take a fresh look at 2020 astrology, tracking the story line as a transition from the Capricorn conjunction to the Aquarius one. This may feel like crossing a rope bridge over a high canyon. It will take steadiness, focus and commitment to get to the other side. The transition is from the political and corporate (Capricorn, driven by Pluto and Saturn) to the social and humanitarian (Aquarius, animated by Jupiter and Saturn).

I will pay special attention to the retrogrades of Venus and Mars, one of the tools that will help us make the transition — a topic that I have not covered yet, and will develop beautifully in RESPECT, a series of audio readings with visual aids, all of which will be available some time between the December solstice and New Year’s Eve.

The Dawning of a New Aquarian Era

Planet Waves
The next two years will be under the guidance of Saturn — which is part of two rare conjunctions and part of a new cycle of history. Photos above and in the header are from the Cassini Space Probe.

With the movement of Jupiter and Saturn into Aquarius, we are entering a whole new continent of astrology. We will notice a sudden and otherwise inexplicable change in the tone of society.

Old challenges will give way to new opportunities — and the need to adjust to the dominance of another sign. This is not the proper beginning of the "Age of Aquarius" but rather a kind of mini-age that will present a trial run. I will cover that in Part 2 of RESPECT, a series of futuristic written readings that will be published as they are written through early 2020, to be completed by the March equinox at the latest.

The feeling of Aquarius is entirely different from that of Capricorn. Saturn gets lighter in this sign, and it will be joined by Jupiter. The result will be a palpable shift of energy as 2021 begins — but when it happens, we will have earned it. Knowing your astrology will help you get there.

In These Times — 2019 Autumn Reading
How do we confront this dual problem of premeditated decay of society, and the inner issue of needing the strength to take some meaningful action? Where do we start? As in few other times, this calls for a response from a spiritual place: of deep caring and responsibility; the quest for honest connection above all else.

What I have to offer you are 12 readings of approximately one hour each, which use astrology to address the matter: the one about how to orient yourself to make the most of the difficult and challenging times we are in.

All 12 signs are currently $111. I am keeping that price low to encourage having access to all of the work. Individual readings are $44 for the first and $22 for each additional.

Intelligence, Your 2019-2020 Annual Reading by Eric Francis

Ideal for spot-consultation throughout the year when you need extra insight or want to track your progress, Eric’s accessible, in-depth written readings offer uncanny insights, problem-solving strategies and down-to-Earth encouragement — based on the year’s most significant astrology for your sign. He also catches nuances that many other astrologers miss, giving these readings remarkably personal relevance, at a fraction of the cost of in-person consulting.

We live in a most unusual moment, a perilous moment, and a beautiful one too. Our time in history is described by the astrology that is influencing all of us individually, and is making fireworks in the primary chart of the United States.

On January 12, 2020, at 11:59 pm EST, the world will experience the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto, in the sign Capricorn. This is a one-time event, for this cycle. (The next time the two form an exact conjunction is June 15, 2053, in Pisces).

For this reason, INTELLIGENCE, the 2019 annual edition of Planet Waves, covers two years. The conjunction of Saturn and Pluto requires preparation. This aspect has a long story-arc. It brings to a close a cycle begun in November 1982, and opens a new cycle, in our personal history and in American history.

All 12 Signs and Rising Signs: Price: $144.00

Individual Signs and Rising Signs: Price: $44 for the first sign, and $33 for each subsequent sign.

The Awakenings: Uranus Transits

If you were born between 1975 and 1981, you are experiencing one of the most important transits of your life — the Uranian opposition. We all have Uranus somewhere in our natal chart, though this reading will appeal mostly to those born with Uranus in Taurus (approx. 1934-1941), Leo (1955-1962) and Scorpio (1975-1981).

We know you’re experiencing Uranus in Taurus in some unusual ways. Everyone is feeling it, though those with strong Taurus charts, or born with Uranus in one of those ranges, will experience unexpected turns of events; it’s Eric’s role to help you make them productive.

This reassuring, informative reading will stand up to many playings and keep providing you with helpful insights and revelations. It’s playable or downloadable on any kind of device. Get instant access here.
