The Jupiter/Neptune square of 2019: Dissolving limitations and boundaries

Jupiter square Neptune

One of the more significant planetary cycles of 2019 is a powerful square (90 degree) dynamic between Jupiter and Neptune.  Jupiter and Neptune are connected through their mutual rulership of the sign Pisces:  Jupiter is the traditional ruler and Neptune the modern ruler of Pisces. Jupiter and Neptune share an expansive view of the world, and a desire to bring true meaning into our lives.  However, Jupiter’s focus is more on the expansion of the Self through a pursuit of meaning and Truth whereas Neptune’s role is to inspire us to break free of the boundaries of the limitations of this material world and the individual Self.

Because Jupiter and Neptune are natural allies, even the stressful aspects like the square can bring about a swell of creativity and bliss.   Jupiter’s expansive and buoyant nature gives a boost to Neptune’s inspiration to expand the inner spiritual heart.  The only danger here is that Jupiter is especially powerful in the other sign which it rules: Sagittarius, and Neptune is in Pisces, the sign co-ruled by Jupiter and Neptune.  All of this magic and bliss and creativity and inspiration is wonderful for writers, musicians, artists – anyone practicing in a creative field or exploring spirituality.  It is less wonderful for keeping our feet on the ground and making sensible decisions.

Fortunately, during this first phase of the Jupiter/Neptune square (January 10-30) we have a stellium of four planets and luminaries in grounded Capricorn: Saturn, Mercury, Pluto and the Sun.  Saturn, the planet that teaches us to master the material world, is in its own sign of Capricorn where it is creating boundaries as quickly as Jupiter and Neptune can unravel them.  This may feel a bit nerve-racking […]

Some scientists agree…the Universe is a conscious being

Since the beginning of time, humans have debated the source of consciousness.  Is it all in the physical brain?  Are we just a pack of neurons in a physical body?  Is the sum total of all that we experience contained in the physical body?

A recent article in Aeon Magazine postulated:

Some consciousness researchers see the hard problem as real but inherently unsolvable; others posit a range of options for its account. Those solutions include possibilities that overly project mind into matter. Consciousness might, for example, be an example of the emergence of a new entity in the Universe not contained in the laws of particles [emphasis added].

Panpsychism is the theory that consciousness is the root of all things – a universal feature that links all beings and things.  This kind of theory is a part of nearly all eastern religions as well as most ancient philosophies, but fell out of favor with the emergence of the scientific method which required empirical proof rather than speculation.

With Neptune, the planet that inspires in us the direct experience of divine consciousness, in its own sign of Pisces, it’s not surprising that there is a bit of a resurgence in the idea of pantheism and the idea that the Universe is itself conscious.  Scientist Gregory Matloff has hypothesized that

humans may be like the rest of the universe in substance and in spirit. A “proto-consciousness field” could extend through all of space, he argues. Stars may be thinking entities that deliberately control their paths. Put more bluntly, the entire cosmos may be self-aware.

and .

I myself have always felt it to be true that there is a Universal […]

Planetary news this week, January 7, 2019

This week, while we are coming off the influence of the solar eclipse at the Capricorn New Moon, Uranus is at a standstill in the sky as it prepares to change direction.  In its role as the instigator of radical change and transmission of information from the higher mind, Uranus helps to expand our consciousness as it inspires us to break out of routines that keep us stuck in our day to day ruts.

When any planet prepares to appear to change direction (of course we all know that planets don’t really change direction, they just seem to from our vantage point on Earth) it slows down, just as a car does before making a U-turn.  At these times that planet’s influence is more intense than usual, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself needing to break out of a routine or someplace you feel stuck over the next week since Uranus turned direct on the 6th.

Venus enters Sagittarius today (January 7) which will be nice for our relationships and our general sense of well-being.  While in Sagittarius for a few weeks, Venus will encourage us to socialize more and enjoy having fun with the people around us.  There will be less emphasis on confrontation and processing hard stuff, and more of a focus on sharing ideas and just enjoying each other.

Venus is associated with the monetary system, and while Venus is in Sagittarius, especially since Uranus has turned direct, we may see the globalize financial situation stabilize for a few weeks as the principle of confidence under Venus in Sagittarius offsets the heavy solidity of the Capricorn stellium at the eclipse.

Still, the challenging square from Jupiter (optimism) to Neptune (delusion) that culminates on January 13th is […]

Today’s partial solar eclipse is a powerhouse of grounded energy

solar eclipseToday’s New Moon in Capricorn is the first eclipse of the year: a partial Solar Eclipse in which the light of the Moon blocks out the Sun.  This eclipse occurs with five planets (including the Sun and Moon) all in the practical and grounded sign of Capricorn.

Though a solar eclipse typically brings out the heightened emotions of the Moon as the solar conscious principle is blocked by the lunar influence which is more reactive, this Capricorn New Moon is all about creating a new foundation which is solid and well balanced.  Any eclipse carries with it a heightened energy which can be utilized for creation and for personal transformation – we can see this energy at work in the fact that eclipses are usually associated with powerful weather events.

That is particularly true of this eclipse – though it is a partial eclipse, the Sun and Moon are aligned with Pluto, planet of destruction and rebirth.  Capricorn can be somewhat ruthless in its efforts to create a solid structure, setting aside personal emotions for the sake of the greater goals.  As in any eclipse, the Sun and Moon are also aligned with the lunar nodes, and in this case the North Node is in the sensitive nurturing sign of Cancer.  This Cancer North Node urges us not to forget the feelings and needs of those around us while we concentrate on our plan.

Fortunately, a Grand Trine of water (emotion and sensitivity) link Venus (relating and interpersonal connection) with Chiron (wounding and healing) and the Cancer North Node. Keep in mind that eclipse energies typically build for about three days before the event and take about three days to subside.   Finding this emotional balance within as we put the grounded […]
