|Because this event occurs every 32-35 years, although not in the same signs, or at a continuous rate, we can consider it something very special. To get an idea of how special it is, the last time it happened on the sign of Capricorn (as now) was in 1518-1519. The triple conjunction in Capricorn that will occur in 2020 between Jupiter-Saturn and Pluto, was last formed in 1284. 736 years ago. Coincidentally in 1517-19, Uranus was also in Taurus, (as now) and Eris in Aries, (as now). That is, the only time (before now) that the same planetary position of these 5 planets was like today, was 500 years ago. In the last 2000 years only 4 times this conjunction occurred in Capricorn, however in the sign of Pisces, in this same period of time there were 7 Saturn-Pluto conjunctions and in Taurus, 8.
Already in the 20th century, the Saturn-Pluto conjunction occurred in 1914 at the sign of Cancer, which marked the beginning of the First World War. In 1947, at the end of World War II, it was re-formed in the sign of Leo, coinciding with the formation of Israel and the beginning of the Cold War that would end in 1991. In Argentina, women acquired the right to vote. In 1965 there was a Saturn-Pluto opposition that coincided with the fact that Uranus was next to Pluto in Virgo. These were the years of the Vietnam War, as well as a time of great rebellions typical of transitions between two very different times. In 1963 they killed Kennedy. 1968 was one of the years that changed history, with demonstrations in France, in Chekoslovakia, USA (against the Vietnam War and against racism), Martin Luther King was killed, a year later the man went to the Moon for the first time. In 1981-1982 the conjunction Saturn Pluto coincided with the Falklands War, and the advent of AIDS that killed more people than many wars. In 2001 for the opposition of these two planets, two planes crashed into the Twin Towers of New York starting the war against Muslim fundamentalism, which led us to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The current conjunction in Capricorn is the first of this century and we can all feel or intuit the changes that are brought, not only in our institutions (Capricorn) with the evidence of corruption in governments, the resurgence of politicians who support supremacy of the white race, the evidence of the warming of the Earth, the changes in the way we see education, Nature, the monetary system, etc.
We are at a very interesting moment in our history, when we really have to become aware of the depletion of our natural resources, such as water, for example, as the need to stop using fossil fuels and to avoid getting flooded in plastic.
