Astrology for BTW 2020

by Ivo Dominguez Jr.

Throughout 2020 there are numerous significant astrological markers. This BTW conference is intended to prepare us for the grand conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on December 21, 2020 that is also the solstice. The dates for the conference will be April 9-12, 2020 which is the start of a Jupiter and Pluto conjunction cycle. There will also be a new cycle of Saturn and Pluto conjunctions.  A listing of the major astrological events for 2020 with additional information will be available here shortly.

Just shy of every 20 years there is a conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn that is significant, but usually not a world changing event. These conjunctions cycle through the Four Elements over the course of about 800 years. In 2020 we move from having Jupiter and Saturn conjunctions in Earth Signs to conjunctions in Air Signs. Each Element cycle takes about 200 years to complete. What this also means is that we are nearing the end of a cultural cycle that started in the 1840s and ends in 2020. The level of change and upheaval will be astonishing even what has already been a decade of the unprecedented. The desire for change, whether looking forward or backward will be intense at every scale from the individual to the global. No doubt much of the change will be destructive, but there is also great potential for good.


Between The World was previously held in 1996, 2000, 2004, 2007, 2012, and 2015.  The conference in 2015 was a joint event with the Sacred Space Foundation. The first six BTW conferences had a connecting theme about consciously working with the change of the Ages, the Aeons. The BTW in 2020 is about working to build the world that we wish to live in regardless of the challenges. This work is personal, collective, and transpersonal.
