This past Monday, the 8th, Jupiter turned Retrograde and will remain so until April of next year.
On Friday, December 12th, he will trine the Sun and Mercury conjunct in Sagittarius.
Leo is the warmhearted King, while Sagittarius and his ruler Jupiter are ever seeking the fundamental truths our existence in this universe has to offer up.
Jupiter turning retrograde finds us at year’s end. The King of Planet in the sign of the King is asking us all to look within. To reflect; to contemplate where this ending cycle has taken us; to decide which direction we will set out for in the coming months.
We are bid to delve even further into our hearts and unlock desires that may have been overlooked in the name of forward progress. Desires that are waiting to be embraced and then actualized.
Monday’s trine from the Sun and Mercury simply kicks-off Leo Jupiter’s new quest for each of us.
And once the new year is begun, we still get 3 more months of passionate, creative introspection.
It really is a beautiful request from the universe.
And it is amazing to me how much play Chiron and Uranus have gotten in so many major events since I started this blog this past Summer.
By now, we should all be masters at effortlessly soothing our weary psyches as our deepest scars repeatedly surface, quickly and brilliantly to boot!
Ha! Oh, to be so lucky.
Speaking of painful wounds, this month’s Full Moon will also incorporate an inconjunct from Capricorn Pluto to the Gemini Moon. This adds the faint feeling of jeopardy to the day—danger to our very security just below the surface.
I am working on a post concerning the long, long, long dance of Pluto, Chiron and Uranus during their sojourns through Capricorn, Pisces and Aries, respectively.
Tomorrow, November 24th, Mars exacts the first inconjunct of his I/O/Q cycle with Jupiter in Leo.
This is our first opportunity to draw jovial Lion energy to the three signs in the heavens opposite Leo—Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces. And an individual chance for us each to pull Leo strengths to the houses affected by these Martian transits.
A quincunx isn’t easy to operate—you have to think and consciously implement any revelations that pop up. But the potential is there in spades.
Traditionally with this pairing, well, Capricorn doesn’t have much in common with Leo, with the exception of the two’s penchant for wanting to be on top!
And that is just enough of a connection to get the wheels turning.
So, let’s see what the themes we are playing with look like up close and personal . . .
The Kite between the grand-Fire-trine, Sun/Venus/North Node and Uranus/South Node crystallizes on Tuesday, the 7th. The Sun’s end of the opposition along the Nodal Axis is sextiling Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Leo. The Moon is in Aries and well on her way to move into position for the Eclipse on Wednesday—of which I will post seperately.
Kites allow us to access the treasure trove of contained energy in a grand-trine. This particular event is bringing the immense power of a Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse into the frey.
The universe is giving us notice it is time to move forward.
So, in this post, I’m gonna break down the new ingredients that make up the Kite formation.
Starting around the 1st, Mars in Sagittarius is moving into orb with Uranus and Leo and IT IS ON!!
This aspect will continue to gain strength until it perfects around the 4th of October, then will last well into the week after. It is forming the bedrock for a Kite formation with the Sun/Venus/Nodal Axis/Moon/Uranus during October’s Full Moon/Eclipse on the 8th.
And like any grand-Fire-trine should, it’s gonna go out with a bang, folks!
There will be a Yod involving the Moon in Taurus on October 10th, tying up Mars and Jupiter in the mix.
So much action. You’d think someone lit a match in a gas can!
I will post about the Kite, Lunar Eclipse—all of it separately. Right now, I want to concentrate on the grand-Fire-trine.
