Jackie Slevin, "When Santa Claus Meets Darth Vader; the Jupiter Pluto Conjunction Throughout the Ages"

Either way polarities preside, but during this conjunction in 2020 will we achieve global, sustainable energy renewal or battle Armageddon with plutocrats? Examples of this conjunction throughout history will shed new light on old conundrums.
