Jupiter in Virgo 2015-2016

Jupiter in VirgoJupiter entered Virgo on August 11th, 2015 and will remain in that sign until September 9, 2016.  Because Jupiter’s orbital period is about 12 years, it spends about a year in each sign.

Jupiter, in his role as King of the Gods, inspires us to higher aspirations – to be bigger and better than we ever thought we could be.  Jupiter bestows confidence and the kind of faith that tends to bring good things our way – but it also can create an overblown sense of entitlement and grandiosity.  Jupiter is also connected to the search for meaning that separates humans from other creatures, and presides over theology and philosophy as well as constructs of law that underpin human society.

Jupiter’s expansion is not all that happy in the orderly sign of Virgo.  Over the next year you can expect greater focus on expressing one’s higher self (Jupiter) through service to others (Virgo), but also a diminishment of the kind of confidence and positivity that we experienced under Jupiter in Leo.  Jupiter is said to be in its detriment in Virgo because the expansiveness of Jupiter is impaired by Virgo’s need to create order out of minute details.  However, Jupiter’s relentless optimism can sometimes result in a careless complacency that keeps us from being able to achieve our goals and realize our dreams,. The passage of Jupiter through Virgo can enhance our work ethic and facilitate our ability to successfully navigate the many details of modern life.

The next year will be a time when managing of those small details in our lives becomes critical.  This dynamic will echo somewhat the restrictive force of Saturn in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius, making this a better time for responsible attention to the mundane than […]

Planetary Illuminations for July 2015 now posted

July astrological forecastIf you are on my mailing list you will soon receive your abridged version, translated into easy to understand English.  If you’re not, please sign up in the sidebar!

You can read the article in its entirety here, and meanwhile here is the summary for July’s main events.

During July there are no interactions between any of the slower moving outer planets that create intensive energies of change, but the challenging square  (90 degree angle) between Jupiter (expansion) and Saturn (restriction).  Dances between Jupiter and Saturn often create restriction in financial markets, and the first exact square alignment occurs in early August.  This cycle will continue through May/June of 2016.

Venus turns retrograde on July 25th and will be stationary for a week or so before the change of direction and remain retrograde until September 8th.  Venus rules not only love and beauty, but also describes the things we value and attract.  Therefore, it is involved in matters of wealth accumulation and personal possessions – anything that provides a sense of security.  During Venus retrograde cycles it is not uncommon to reconnect with old friends and rediscover loved ones, or repair relationships that need it.  During the retrograde period Venus will align with Jupiter three times, creating an atmosphere of beauty and joy that will help to offset the Saturn effect described above.

Uranus also turns retrograde this month but its stationary period lasts a bit longer – usually about two weeks.  Uranus will remain retrograde until December 25th, giving us plenty of time to re-examine areas of our life that require change.  Uranus is retrograde every year for about six months so this is not an unusual occurrence.

Planetary Illuminations for April 2015 now posted

horoscope April 2015And you can read the whole article here.  

If you’d like to receive this monthly report with a translation into easy to understand language please sign up for my mailing list in the sidebar!

I will be writing a separate article for the Full Moon Eclipse coming up on April 4th, but here is a synopsis of the major events for the month of April.

Although Uranus and Pluto are beginning to separate from the intensity of their challenging square, soothing the intensity of the push for change of the past five years, the Eclipse on April 4th will trigger these two monsters of enforced transformation one more time.

Two planets change direction this month;  Jupiter turns direct on April 8th and Pluto turns retrograde on the 16th. Both planets have slowed down to a crawl (a “station”) in preparation for its change of direction.  When a planet is stationary its influence becomes more powerful and this will be particularly true if Pluto is affecting your own chart right now.  As Lord of the Underground Pluto forces our attention into areas where we might otherwise not care to venture – the dark underground of the psyche, of emotions, of secrets.  Pluto demands that we surrender those aspects of our life which we know we have outgrown, and if we don’t follow his instructions he can become rather ruthless. Stationary Jupiter has a milder effect, especially when the experience occurs under a Pluto influence.

Still – the planetary intensity of the past few months is beginning to lessen and April brings mostly smaller cycles of the faster moving planets as we pick up the pieces of our lives after the tornado of the Uranus/Pluto square which has created so much upheaval […]

Saturn turns retrograde: The mentor at work

Saturn retrograde 2015

The planet Saturn governs restriction of all kinds – the sense of being blocked from your goals and dreams, the commitments that are required in order to establish a government, a corporation or a marriage.  Saturn can bring delays to our accomplishments and disappointments and failure.

Still, at the heart of the matter Saturn serves as a mentor.  When we want to improve our skills, we often hire a mentor or a teacher to help.  When we want to feel good about life and find big experiences to give our lives meaning, we go to Jupiter.  But if we want to apply ourselves in a serious manner to hone our craft, Saturn is a much better teacher.  A good teacher won’t pass us when our grades are failing, and will point out our faults so that we can improve.  This is not as enjoyable as a nice Jupiterian experience of superconfidence, but in the long run it helps to build strength and endurance and ultimately, a successful life in the physical plane.

Saturn turns retrograde today at nearly 5 degrees Sagittarius, and for the past month it has barely traveled a degree as it slowed down in preparation for its change of direction.  Saturn turns retrograde every year so this is not an unusual occurrence, but during this retrograde Saturn will pass back into Scorpio between June 14th and September 17th.  Because of Saturn’s role as a teacher (some call him the Lord of Karma), when Saturn appears to move backwards in the sky from our perspective he calls on us to clear up any messy situations that may still be lingering in the cosmos of our lives.  Unfinished situations often will blow up […]
