It’s 11:11, make a wish.” This was a daily refrain among my high school friends—twice daily on Fridays, when we were together right until our curfews (or beyond). The idea is that when all the ones line up on a digital clock, if you notice it within the minute, you could score a bit of luck. It’s not out of nowhere that we came to hold this belief, either: 11-11 has significance in numerology as an angel number, and the date 11-11, or November 11, is widely considered to be a lucky day. But what does 11-11, particularly November 11, 2020, actually mean in a year where good fortune has been sparse?

Well, the astrology of November 11, 2020 does have significance, according to an astrologer. And, rest assured, friends, its energy mostly positive. According to astrologer and tarot-card reader Maria Sofia Marmanides, it’s to be viewed as the critical juncture before the last chapter of 2020.

“Jupiter and Pluto are applying to meet in their third and final conjunction,” Marmanides says. “It’s going to be a very powerful moment in our personal and collective lives. Jupiter is the largest planet and Pluto is the smallest—not even considered a planet anymore—so it’s an interesting contrast: a small thing taking on larger-than-life proportions and transforming our entire landscape.”

For some background, Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius, and it’s a magnificent and abundant celestial being that’s often associated with abundance, expansion, and, yes, luck itself. It’s why your Jupiter return is a tight-as-hell time when the stars tend to be in your favor. On the flip side, Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio, and is more emblematic of things that buried in the darkness or hidden. It’s also the planet of transformation. So while there might be some darkness resurfacing on 11/11 this year, consider it important for taking a final step toward positive growth.

“On a mundane astrology level, the Jupiter and Pluto conjunction signaled the magnification of Plutonian themes—most acutely with the rapid spread of coronavirus cases and the subsequent lockdowns,” says Marmanides. “But on a personal level, it can also be deeply transformative as well, where we allow something buried deep within us—a wish, a dream, a desire, a secret—to take on a new form or life.”

When it comes to the transformative 11-11 significance in astrology year year, know that the cardinal signs will likely be most impacted, as Jupiter and Pluto are in the cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn. So Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and Libra, get ready for something in your life to manifest or shift into something else. Likewise, if your chart has a planet in those signs (run a free birth chart generator to find out if you’re not sure) or a planet in any sign at 22 degrees, this transit will definitely be felt. For the cardinal signs, it’s a critical point, as the Jupiter-Pluto transit will either form a conjunction (Capricorns), opposition (Cancers) or square (Aries and Libra) to your Sun, or any other planets you have in that sign.

“These aspects usually instigate some kind of change—and not to worry, change does not necessarily mean bad,” says Marmanides. “Because it’s the third pass of this transit, it’s likely the final conclusion of a year-long story that began in April and resurfaced in July is finally coming back up again for its ending.”

And though it’s been a hard and intense ride, much of 2020 has reinforced just how crucial it is for things to change, and how new systems can create a better world. On that note, I’m feeling lucky about 11/11 this year. What about you?
