Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions 1600-2200 AD

Jupiter-Saturn conjunctins occur roughly every 20 years and set the socio-politico atmosphere for the 20 years following the conjunction.

There appears to be a pattern of these conjunctions occuring in a certain element roughly every 200 years.

1600 to 1800 AD was dominated by the conjunctions occurring in FIRE signs.

1800-2000 AD was dominated by the conjunctions occurring in EARTH signs. .

2000 to 2200 AD will be dominated by the conjunctions occurring in AIR signs.
(Note: periods are rounded off).

This is important because these two slowest visible heavyweight planets set the mood for two centuries at a time, at least in this epoch.

The 1600's and 1700's was a time of exploration and adventure(Sagittarius), as well as war and new beginnings(Aries), and kingdom or rulership(Leo).

The 1800's and 1900's was a time of land and wealth aquisition(Taurus), as well as toil and hard work(Virgo), and defining national borders and laws and creating industry(Capricorn).

The 2000's and 2100's will be a time of great knowledge and communication(Gemini), as well as cooperation and justice(Libra), and freedom and truth(Aquarius).

Below are more specific times for these Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions and what signs they fall in. They were taken(most of them) from a book called Tables of Planetary Phenomena by Neil F. Michelson, 2nd edition. It details the date and time(UT) of the exact Jupiter-Saturn conjunction.

As you can see, there is some overlap, but the dominant elements are obvious. The late overlaps are lingering periods from the last main epoch while the early overlaps are precursors to the main epoch. The 1980-81 Jupiter conjunction in Libra, for example, is a precursor to the general air epoch beginning in December(21) 2020, and the 2000 conjunction in Taurus(lasting up to late 2020) is the last gasp for the earth sign epoch.
