Jupiter in Scorpio: Expansion of Truth and Mystery

Jupiter – the King of the Gods, the largest planet in our solar system.  Everything about it is bigger than life.  In our natal astrological charts, Jupiter shows where we find meaning in life, the kind of belief systems we formulate, and the pathways that will give us the abundance and opportunities to keep expanding. Known traditionally as the “greater benefic,” Jupiter’s influence is generally favorable and offers us confidence and optimism and a desire for growth and expansion.

(Astrology geeks: details of planetary movements can be found at the bottom of the page)  Jupiter also represents the search for truth – our own personal truth.  The truth that makes sense to us, our theology, and when we find others that share that truth, our religion.  Our philosophy of life.  In the process of finding this truth we seek to expand the limits of our knowledge through higher education, discovery of other cultures and foreign countries, and the higher knowledge that expands our inner consciousness.

The astrological sign of Scorpio represents Truth with a capital “T” – the Truth that is gritty and real and supersedes our own ideas of what is true.  Jupiter stays in a sign for about a year and has been in the sign of Libra since the fall of 2016 where it expanded cultural ideas of beauty and relationships.  Jupiter will enter the deep water sign of Scorpio on October 10th 2017 and will remain there through November 8th 2018.

Scorpio is also associated with sexuality, emotional intensity, passions of all kinds, as well as the energetic undercurrents that reveal the secrets behind the areas of our lives that we usually keep hidden.  Brutal honesty and direct confrontation are […]

Planetary news this week!

Dear friends, I am hoping to get back on a more or less regular writing schedule and as always appreciate your patience.  I’m also going to try something new, which is to keep the planetary information simple but include the astrological details at the bottom of the post.  I hope that this will help those of you new to astrology, which is most of my readership, while still giving the experts the information they need.

On to today’s news!   First of all, Pluto is shining a laser beam right now that will continue throughout the months of September and October.  Pluto is the Lord of the Underworld of the Psyche, and when its influence is powerful as it is right now there is a tendency for the dark underbelly of the collective psyche to be revealed.

If like me Pluto is activating your personal chart, you are likely to experience a higher level of intensity and confrontation than usual as Pluto works to strip away our false selves to reveal the Truth that lies beneath over the next few months.

The other big piece of astrological news is the deconstruction and pressure for radical change that is the dance between Jupiter and Uranus.  Both of these planets seek change and liberation, but in this cycle they are in a challenging aspect to each other which can be somewhat destabilizing as part of us yearns for change, yet change is occurring in a manner that is unexpected and perhaps undesired.

Under this influence change can be uncomfortable for many of us.  It’s not unusual to be unhappy with an aspect of our lives yet be unwilling or afraid to create […]

A very wicked Mercury Retrograde! And “Mercury Max”

Am I the only one who has had a miserable time over the past three weeks?  I’m usually pretty good at navigating through Mercury retrograde periods, but this one really did wreak havoc in many areas of my life.  I can’t count the number of appointments that I either didn’t enter into the calendar or put in the wrong place.  Confusion in communication was rampant, including changing my mind and redoing certain things over and over.

All of this was made worse by the fact that Mercury (communication) aligned with Mars (passion and anger) at the eclipse degree, at the end of August.  Any issues that came up at the time of eclipse continued to erupt at that time.

Richard Nolle is a brilliant astrologer who first coined the term “Supermoon” for a lunation (Full or New Moon) that is closest to the earth.  Another one of his ideas is that of “Mercury Max” – the period of greatest elongation between Mercury and the Sun.  According to Richard, the Mercury Max period ”

begins when evening star Mercury reaches its maximum elongation (greatest distance) east of the Sun; extends through the Mercury  and the inferior , and ends when the little planet as morning star reaches its maximum elongation west of the Sun.

If like me this technical language is difficult to comprehend, the important thing to note is that these cycles occur four times a year in concert with the Mercury retrograde cycles.  The current Mercury Max cycle according to Richard began on July 30th and continued all the way through August, ending around September […]
