Dear Friends of HAUT & SEIN,
A challenging and fast-paced year, you could even call 2021 breathless in fact, is drawing to a close. The first year in the new Air Era, which is starting to make it clear how much we are in transition between Tradition and Renewal. What made 2021 stand out were the tensions between the reformation planet Uranus in Taurus and the traditional planet Saturn in Aquarius, the third aspect of which reached its high point on 24 December 2021.
Saturn as the old ruler of the Aquarius sign and Uranus as its new ruler bring together the sense of striving for a personal and sustainable achievement, combined with the desire to find forms and ways of reflecting and explaining what we experience. The difference between the two planets is that Saturn seeks security in fixed material structures and traditions, whilst Uranus wants to dissolve the old to make way for new possibilities. This means that we feel torn between the desire for autonomy, freedom and independence and the need for security.
This might seem contradictory at first glance. Whilst the effects of the pandemic brought with them more change than most would like, there was an even more pronounced desire for change among many people, combined with the need to break free from old habits in favour of new opportunities for personal development.
In the yearly horoscope for 2021 I already mentioned that on 21 December 2020 there was a major change in regime, known as the Great Conjunction, with Jupiter and Saturn in the spiritually agile Air sign Aquarius. This kind of change in regime only takes place once every 200 years. In the Earth Era that now lies behind us, it was all about revolutionising industry, technology, medicine, connected with everything that is measurable and calculable. But it was also about the unbridled consumption of the earth’s resources.
The pandemic shook the foundations of what had long seemed so calculable to us and turned everything in the world upside down at quite a speed. Along with what felt like never-ending lockdowns, many people had the time to reflect on themselves and began, more or less involuntarily, to question their previous lives. Was it a happy or unfortunate situation to be in? At the same time as pressing the stop button, the reset button was often activated as well. The supposed standstill created an amazing kind of energy within, sheltering a burgeoning will to take charge of shaping our own lives and with greater scope for action. Not only in the personal microcosm but also on the global stage, outdated power structures have had to give way to newly discovered possibilities for development.
Initially we all thought that things would go back to how they were before in no time – thanks to vaccination. But that’s not exactly how things will turn out. We may well realise that an era characterised by competition, consumption and capitalism is coming to an end. If issues such as the climate crisis, inequality and the desire for change, especially amongst the younger generations, sometimes felt themselves heard, more and or less loudly, in the years before the pandemic, right now they are the centre of attention and they will turn our lives upside down in future.
The new era ahead of us is defined by forces that cooperate and push us forward. Upheavals, uncertainties and change will not feel threatening. On the contrary, the joy of experimentation will lead to visions being tested for their viability and becoming reality. Qualities like mental flexibility, spiritual freedom, creativity, spirituality and holistic thinking are becoming more and more important, driving technology and science forward in a completely new way. We are still right at the beginning of this new era and are in a kind of transition period. Visionaries like Elon Musk are giving us a taste of what might be possible with their unconventionality, fact-based pragmatism and unbridled curiosity.
Over the past year, repeated attempts have been made to unite things that are no longer connected. Even if some developments have already started out on a new direction, there are still many things that no one knows how they will develop in the future. We just have to see it through. I think that solutions will only come when we stop looking for security in the places we have always found it up until now. We often try to solve problems by using old ways of doing things, and then at some point realise that we need a new way of looking at things. But first, the old tried and tested ways must be completely exhausted. Only then can we manage to get past the old rules and discover completely new paths that give us a completely new feeling of freedom. This cannot take place overnight. We have to relive the past inwardly in order to let it go. At the same time, we need to be sensitive and patient with others who have to free themselves from previous life structures before being able to reorient and position themselves.
This requires staying power and the ability to free yourself from burdens. By remaining true to ourselves in this process and retaining what continues to give us a sense of permanence and by maintaining the feeling that we can combine this with newly acquired experiences, we will give ourselves the chance to go new ways. Preservation and transformation don’t need to be contradictory, they can be two sides of the same coin.
The year 2022 will be another year of transition. The tension between Saturn and Uranus will increase throughout the year and continues to indicate how important new beginnings and the creation of new orders will become. At the beginning of the year in particular and between September and November, we will still feel the conflict between Saturn (the old) and Uranus (the new). We should examine our previous views and ideas with an open mind and honesty. Standing by your decisions, taking a stance with your own inner values and having the courage to say goodbye to what no longer applies to you will be crucial in the new Air Era.
Jupiter occupies an important position as ruling planet of 2022. It will move between Pisces and Aries and from this position will allow us to let go of the old and take the opportunity for a new beginning. Even though not all your goals and wishes may be implemented from a standing start, the first promising steps can be taken. Uranus is in the ascending lunar node for several months and so many paths to renewal will be revealed.
Jupiter in a harmonious aspect to Neptune combines confidence with our dreams and aspirations. With this constellation, the feeling of human connection increases. Our intuitive perception also gets stronger, along with the feeling of being part of a bigger whole. The first reliable ideas and solutions become clear. At the same time, this may also lead to exaggerated illusory expectations. It’s advisable to remain vigilant and make constant checks. In April, a Jupiter/Neptune constellation will allow us to experience what it means to feel universally connected and will give us a taste of this new era. That feeling of everything falling into place and coming to us at the right moment.
From 29 December 2021 to 10 May 2022, Jupiter will be in its old ruling sign, Pisces. This is a time for mindful togetherness. Jupiter in Pisces combines the desire for expansion with the need for altruism. In these times, we are in tune with our intuition. This is a time in which difficult subjects, not least the pandemic, can be processed and understood in a bigger context. Worries, long-standing sadness and the past can be let go. Indulgence, forgiveness and compassion for other people’s problems can lead to creative impulses being set in motion.
From 11 May to 28 October, Jupiter is in Aries, marking the start of a more optimistic mood. The need for freedom steeply rises and motivation levels are high. There is so much to do. This period is ideal for achieving set goals. Our ability to assert ourselves and our sense of initiative reveal themselves. The courage to take risks is required. In November and December, Jupiter is back in Pisces for a short time. Tangible results will only become apparently when Jupiter finally ends up back in Aries on 20 December. By the end of the year, we should be ready to get started.
In my coaching, I would like to accompany you as you take the next steps in the new beginnings that started in 2021 and prepare the way for the new era to begin. Astrology points us in the right direction. The individual answers can be found in your own individual personality. My highly sensitive perception helps me support you as you unearth issues that are often hidden in the subconscious. This form of “being touched” establishes a connection to the deeper issues so that they can be grasped in another dimension and thus enable more comprehensive answers. Everything you have experienced and your current circumstances are perceived with more intensity than if we just discussed things on a purely rational level. Thoughts and feelings take on a new tone and are looked at from a perspective that has not been available until now. I will then go through the insights I gain with you and put them into order.
To make an appointment, please call me on +49 172 01726882228 or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you and wish you all the best for 2022. May you have the courage to follow your heart, enjoy being part of this change of era and make the most of the opportunities it brings.
All the best, Jana Pákozdi
