2020 has come with its fair share of challenges, but there is also some incredibly promising energy to come with it. This includes the transit of Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, which has been in effect on-and-off throughout 2020.
The first hit came in April, and the second hit was just a couple of weeks ago with the two still pretty close together right now. The final hit will come November 12, so we’ve still got a while to go with these two. Jupiter remains in Capricorn until mid-December (hint: make sure to use the free astrology calendar to keep track of the planets!).
These two planets don’t conjunct very often, so it’s a big deal when they do. Their conjunction can lead to major developments in the world, as well as for you personally.
What does Jupiter conjunct Pluto mean?
Jupiter is the planet of expansion and opportunity.
Jupiter is the happy planet, and wants us to have new experiences and open up to the world. Sometimes, Jupiter expands on the bad rather than the good, but we usually have an easier time turning things around with Jupiter, so it’s less of a problem.
Pluto is the planet of transformation.
Pluto wants to dig deeper and find what’s underneath the surface, not settling for anything superficial. Pluto is a realist who wants to find real solutions to complex problems so we can improve our lives, not temporarily, but permanently.

Capricorn is a practical, disciplined Earth sign, and Saturn is its natural ruling planet. Capricorn can look at the big picture and see things long-term. This sign is ambitious, goal-oriented and driven, and understands what needs to be done to succeed and achieve.
Conjunctions bring energy together.
A conjunction occurs when two planets (or other bodies) occupy the same position in the zodiac. Their energy therefore comes together, fused and working with one another. Conjunctions can go either way, good or bad. It’s what you make of it that counts.
So, putting this all together, the conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn means we have the opportunity (Jupiter) to uncover solutions (Pluto) that help us to succeed and achieve long-term (Capricorn). Such helpful energy!
Do remember though that Saturn is also in Capricorn now, but isn’t conjunct them (Saturn conjuncted Pluto back in January, and won’t again; Saturn didn’t conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn and won’t conjunct Jupiter until they’re both in Aquarius). Keep in mind some of what Saturn wants from you (discipline, integrity, hard work, and sustained focus) and you can satisfy Saturn enough to make positive use of the Jupiter-Pluto energy.

What you create for yourself now has the potential to last for years to come, or even a lifetime, so take the long view.
Success with Jupiter-Pluto comes for you when you’re doing things quietly and trusting your intuition to guide you, Aquarius.
Your instincts can be very strong right now, and part of you may question that, but you should see examples all around you of how right on your intuition has been. Tune in to the subtle energies and messages, and go with it.
You may benefit most from working quietly, and on your own right now. Attention and recognition come in due time.
Success with Jupiter-Pluto comes for you when you’re pushing outside of your comfort zone and making changes, Pisces.
This can be scary sometimes, but letting things continue as they always have likely isn’t an option for you anymore. Change must happen, and you can take control of this and discover more of who you really are as a result.
Think about your future and allow yourself to dream. The future may be closer to you than you think.
One last note
This week, the Sun in Cancer has opposed Jupiter and Pluto (Jupiter on July 14 and Pluto on July 15), so we’re extra challenged right now. Try to use this energy in a positive, productive way.
It may feel like there are both internal and external challenges that are forcing us to do so, to reassess and have better plans, and to strengthen our beliefs that we’re on the right path. Believe in yourself, and believe in your abilities. Know what you’re capable of and know what you want.
Maintaining a solid foundation can be of help, one that’s strong internally and personally as well as externally and with what you’re building outwardly. This can give you a secure structure to build upon, and lead to inspired creations and solutions.
