All About Favorite Jupiter 2016-2017 brings blessings of beauty and love

All About Favorite JupiterJupiter moved from the detail-oriented mental sign of Virgo into the relationship-oriented sign of Libra on September 9th 2016 and will remain in that sign until October 20th 2017.

Jupiter, the Great Benefactor

Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system – filled with expansive gases and generating twice as much energy as it receives from the Sun, it is a powerful influence that demands attention.  Everything about Jupiter is big.  It has more moons than any other planet in the solar system (60!) including Ganymede, the solar system’s largest moon.  It has the strongest gravity of any solar system planet, and a faster rotational speed.

Jupiter has sufficient mass and power that it was almost a star – just as the astrological Jupiter is in some ways like a second Sun.  We must honor the energy of the Sun in our charts to feel nourished and alive; we must honor the energy of Jupiter to feel whole and to give our lives meaning.  Jupiter is called the “greater benefic” –  inspires confidence and faith, it inspires us to expand the boundaries of our mind to break down limitations and gain greater understanding. It can bring good luck and good fortune and so can Venus, the “lesser benefic” and ruler of Libra, so the next year offers the potential for expansion and great positivity in our lives.

Libra, balance and harmonious connection

Libra is the sign of balance, harmony and justice.  While it is known as the sign of lovers and relationships, that association is not like the water element which promotes emotional connection but more of an intellectual idea.  The Libra focus on relationships asks “How can I […]

Retrograde Mercury demands attention

Mercury retrograde

I have known for a long time that the Mercury retrograde phenomenon occurs when Mercury is closest to Earth, but the obvious implications of this escaped me until I read this :

The retrograde period occurs when we are the closest in our orbit to a planet, when we are speeding past them (or for Mercury and Venus, they are speeding past us) so fast that they look like they’re going backwards (and from their point of view, we look the same way). So, if anything, it’s a period of more active engagement, gravitationally and by sheer proximity. A retrograde planet is literally in our face, as much as it can get, with all that implies. It demands our attention, and it only becomes a problem if we ignore it or avoid it (which has been our first inclination, traditionally).

Mercury is the planet of communication and short travel, and when Mercury is retrograde our attention to detail is somewhat inhibited so we tend to miss the larger cues which creates the famous snafus and glitches of these periods.  I have found that this is especially true in the week before Mercury turns retrograde.  At that time its motion slows to a virtual standstill and demands our attention.  The initial phases of a planetary cycle are usually the most intense, as we must integrate a new dynamic of consciousness that has previously not been present.

From John Townley:

[W]hat you should be doing during a retro – paying close attention to needed fixes and readjustments and not just taking time off until it’s over. Those who spend the time with their eyes and minds open profit from the effort, those who don’t miss […]

The Eris-Uranus conjunction of 2015-2017

( from “All Hail Discordia” by Divine Right.) If the global situation seems crazy and insane (and it does!) we can blame it on the conjunction between Eris and Uranus in the warrior sign of Aries, a conjunction that began in 2015.

Eris is a small planet that was discovered in 2003.  Her Roman name was Discordia – she is the goddess who, when not invited to a wedding, began the Trojan War by throwing a golden apple marked “for the fairest” into a circle of goddesses, beginning a dispute that threw Greece into turmoil for ten years.  (Read more about the mythology of Eris here.)  Eris moves very slowly – its orbital cycle is 560 years – and it is still not clear what astrological impact it brings.

Uranus is the planet of radical change and revolutionary behavior.  It has been in the sign of war (Aries) since 2010, fomenting conflicts around the world.  When the planet of discord (Eris) aligns with the planet of disruption (Uranus), it’s easy to see where established paradigms and principles would be turned upside down.

The last Eris/Uranus conjunction took place between 1927 and 1929 in the first degrees of Aries.  This was a period of tremendous scientific and technological (Uranian) breakthroughs as well as political turmoil.  The discovery of quantum physics, the first transatlantic flight by Charles Lindbergh followed by the first woman-led transatlantic flight (Amelia Earhart),  an 8.6 magnitude earthquake in China, rebellions and revolutions encircled the globe including China, Austria, Portugal, Mexico, Japan, Afghanistan.  This of course was the peak of the “Roaring Twenties,” a period of cultural revolution and excesses of all kinds that ended in the stock market crash of 1929 – an event that certainly […]

Neptune in Pisces and extreme flooding

A sudden increase in floods over the past few years is being attributed to climate change by many scientists.

Climate change is never going to announce itself by name. But this is what we should expect it to look like.

That’s what many scientists, analysts and activists are saying after heavy rains in southern Louisiana have and forced tens of thousands of residents from their homes, in the latest in a series of extreme floods that have occurred in the United States over the last two years.

That increase in heavy rainfall and the resultant flooding “is consistent with what we expect to see in the future if you look at climate models,” said David Easterling, a director at the National Centers for Environmental Information, which is operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “Not just in the U.S. but in many other parts of the world as well.”

The flooding in Louisiana is the eighth event since May of last year in which the amount of rainfall in an area in a specified window of time the NOAA predictions for an amount of precipitation that will occur once every five hundred years, or has a 0.2 percent chance of occurring in any given year.

Louisiana joins five other states, most of them in the South, that have experienced deadly flooding in the last 15 months, including ,, and .

In the last three months alone, floods in , West Virginia and Louisiana have combined to […]

“The year that rock exploded”: Neptune in Sagittarius

1971I was just reading about 1971 as “the year that rock exploded” which says:

“In his new book, Never a Dull Moment,Hepworth makes the case that the music from 1971 was the result of “a huge explosion of creativity in a very short period of time” and lives on in the present like most old music does not.

Some of the best albums of all time were recorded and released in 1971, including:

  • “Sticky Fingers” by the Rolling Stone,
  • “The Yes Album” by Yes,
  • “Cry of Love” by Jimi Hendrix,
  • “Aqualung” by Jethro Tull,
  • “Imagine” by John Lennon,
  • “Inner Mounting Flame” by the Mahavishnu Orchestra,
  • “Pearl” by Janis Joplin,
  • “The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys” by Traffic,
  • “Led Zeppelin IV” by Led Zeppelin,
  • “Blue” by Joni Mitchell,
  • “Mud Slide Slim” by James Taylor,
  • “Tapestry” by Carole King.

You can read the whole list on the who write the book.  As Hepworth points out, not only was an enormous amount of fantastic albums produced, the artists themselves kept pumping out brilliance into the world.

When there’s a big shift like this there is always a change in the astrological climate.  In December of 1970, Neptune entered the sign of Sagittarius.  Neptune is a tranformational planet: it inspires creativity and divine wisdom; it urges us to explore the realms beyond the ordinary and takes us to great heights.  By blurring our material vision it demands that we look within and outside of the material world. It can also cloud our vision, facilitate our addictions and generally create confusion, delusion and illusion.

Neptune is also associated with creativity and the arts as well as popular culture. With Neptune in Sagittarius, the sign of expansion and exploration, any boundaries or limits disappear and creativity abounds. […]
