Untitled by Eva Hesse (source:

Just a moment ago, I stumbled across an article about artists and their astrological signs while searching for an image to illustrate this post. Curiously, I also discovered that it’s Eva Hesse’s birthday. I’m going to take a deeper look into her work (and the article I linked above) when I’m done here because this painting speaks to me. To paraphrase André Leon Talley, “I’d hang it in my salon.”

Anyway, I titled this post “Pay Attention” for a reason. Next year during this week, we will be repeating a Sun/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn only a couple of degrees away from the conjunction that just occurred this morning. Whatever happens today could have us feeling like history is repeating itself in 2020. Only next year’s conjunction also has Saturn in the mix.

I often discuss both Saturn and Pluto as having Karmic connections. I even discuss Scorpio and Capricorn as places where Karma seems to manifest itself. Not every astrologer would agree with that, but those astrologers are going to get what’s coming to them. I’m kidding, sort of . . .

Pay attention to what’s going on around you for the next couple of days. Much of what’s going on in your life is a consequence of things you’ve done. Of course, that’s not always the case, but we can’t escape the fact that the universe often gives us what we deserve.

The 2020 conjunction of these three planets is a big deal. The Jupiter/Saturn conjunction later in the year will get a lot of press in the astrology world, but it might not have the same amount of gravitas or the feeling of predestination surrounding the event as this conjunction.

Both Saturn and Pluto represent the foundation on which we build. If Saturn is the concrete in this scenario, Pluto is the bedrock. Choices made at this time will impact the future for years to come. Did you cheap out on building materials? Are you building on shaky ground?

Ask yourself those questions now so that you won’t be asking them in a year from now. Pay attention to what you’re doing this week because you’ll be revisiting those choices in 2020.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
