Jupiter – Saturn is a cycle of 20 years characterised by:

- the cycles show the economic, social and political developments in sequences of 20 years;

- important economic fluctuations, rise or fall of the market;

- conflicts may appear as two different processes must converge in order to generate evolution, especially social progress: expansionism, liberalisation, democratic values, freedom and, on the other side, oppression, rules, limits, performance, effort;

- the manifestation of ideas, potentialities in the material world;

- the Jupiter – Saturn conjunctions are called "Grand Conjunctions"; the conjunctions occur in the same element (fire, earth, air or water) for about 200 years, with 1 or 2 exceptions;

- a series in fire signs symbolise discoveries, exploration, independence, free spirit, adventure, power, display (1603 – 1782); a series in the earth element signify materialism, wealth, industrial development, agriculture, infrastructure, territorial disputes (1802 – 2000); a series in air (next will start in 2020) symbolise new concepts, ideas, intellectual development (1226 – 1405); a series in water corresponds with spiritual movements, art development (1425 – 1583).
