Jupiter is about good luck, abundance, expansion, good times, and fun. He is known as the Benefactor and blesses whichever domain he visits. The sign it is in tells us where these benefits will come from. Libra is about love and partnership. A Libra is an unhappy soul if they are alone. Partnership is a must, as is a desire to be surrounded by beauty in their home, their work, their style, and they would never be with a sloppy looking partner. Libra's are ruled by Venus, so all things Venusian reign bigger than ever. It's a great year for love, partnership (professional as well as personal), for community, for making things prettier, for enhancing your looks, you home decor, etc.
Jupiter is the King of the God's, and ruled by Sagittarius. Sagittarius rules the 9th house of Higher Learning, International Travel and Spirituality. Jupiter wants you to learn and grow and make yourself more worldly. In Libra, he wants you to grow in love, and harmony and sharing. Jupiter changes signs every 12-13 months. So Jupiter in Libra happened 12 years ago, and won't happen again for another 12 years.
Jupiter will spread a sense of love and healing around the world for the next year, which we sorely need. It is also opposite Uranus and Eris, who are on a trip side by side in Aries, Libra's opposite. Aries rule war and and energy, Libra love and partnership and sharing. There is a push pull here, but Libra wants to make every one happy so there is a sense of working it out, finding common ground. There is also the creation of an expansion of the need for revolution. The world is heating up big time and 2017 promises to be pretty crazy. Jupiter, the expander, will enhance this need for Revolution, but luckily All You Need is Love is the counter to that. Listen to the Beatles, get out your fringe, your tie-dye, your pipe, and your cool and groovy attitude. Lets compromise and make it work for every one.
Jupiter in Libra says there will be revolution, but with heart and caring and the need to help everyone while we do it. Jupiter is going to help keep the lid on it, we hope. There is that pesky expand, make bigger, grow thing, which could also escalate matters too much, but Libra will hopefully set the tone. The down side could be religious fanatics deciding they know whats right and whats best, which of course they don't. People can do a lot of bad things in the name of religion and this is something to watch out for now too.
Jupiter is now trineing Saturn, the manifester of material things. This means that the ability to manifest solid, permanent change is strongly possible with expansive Jupiter working with Saturn. Saturn is all serious, Jupiter is fun, but Jupiter working with Saturn can make hard work fun, and it will take hard work for the changes coming to be good changes. It's a time of re-balancing things that are out of balance. Its a time when the choices you make will be solid, not pie in the sky, or bigger than you can manage. Its a time when fear, Saturn, balances optimism, Jupiter, and we find the right mix to make solid progress in matters. It means that the change is going to manifest in a realistic way, and when Saturn is on your side, not much can stop you.
Jupiter, now having left Virgo, is changing our mood. In Gemini and Virgo Jupiter is considered in its detriment. There is a sense of freedom opening up now, the details aren't making us so crazy, and wanting love, a lover, solid friendships and community is working its way into our hearts.
Because Jupiter is the good luck sign, its also a "Gee, I feel so good today maybe I'll just hang out and read or watch TV". If you do this, succumb to the lazy side of Jupiter, you will miss many opportunities. Get out there, be seen, make new friends, socialize., network. The couch will still be there when you get back.
The following tells us how Jupiter in Libra will affect your year.
If you are a Libra or have Libra rising, people are gonna love you this year without your even trying. You are radiating good, positive love and people gravitate to you. Socialize this year and benefit from that fairy dust.
2nd House is about values and money: Your earnings should increase, great time to hustle and be successful, reassess what is important to you and what isn't. Apply for a loan, feel good about your financial health, and don't overspend.
3rd House: Communication and short travels. Plan a lot of weekend adventures close to home; write a book; become a speaker. (This is my placement. I'm going to finally finish my book this year!)
4th House: You could very well move or expand your house and remodel. More people might come to live in your house. Have parties as they will be big hits in your home. This is a wonderful place for Jupiter. Enjoy this year of family happiness.
5th House: New love or rekindle old love, super creative time, maybe have a baby. the creativity factor should not be ignored. Write down those ideas, get out your paint brushes, typewriter, instruments and be a channel for the arts.
6th House: Some big responsibility might drop in your lap. Often parents need your help; pets become ill; or just lots of chores keep popping up. Helping others has a great reward, and Jupiter will teach you the joy of helping others. The upside is your health should prosper, issues are cured, new lifestyle patterns are implemented. Talk to God this year, and s/he'll talk back. Build that connection.
7th House: Start a new business with a partner, get married or shack up; start an organization. People want to, would like to, work with you in all personal and business matters. Legal battles can be won as well.
8th House: Maybe an inheritance or legacy reward; a job with a big, big institution; lots of sex if you're up for it! its a time when you learn to treasure others, and their generosity. Windfalls are not uncommon, so plan accordingly to make it last.
9th House: Expand your spiritual beliefs, travel the world, go back to school. It's all about growing. You are more curious this year, expand your world view, your attitudes, face your prejudices.
10th House: This is a great career boosting year. Work hard, socialize, go to meetings and cocktail parties and network, and you'll get noticed this year. Raises and advancement are yours for the taking. Grab the chance that won't be here again for 12 years.
11th House: Meet lots of new people and make good friends; listen to your ideas and run with them; make a wish and it could come true! Others value your advice, support, friendship. Dream big about your future.
12th House: The house of spiritual matters means you have a chance now to really understand a religion or philosophy and make it a part of your life that gives you understanding and meaning. Your psychic/intuitive abilities could grow. Like the 6th house this is a kind of sacrificial placement, helping others before yourself, but its about learning how good helping others really feels and making it a part of your life. Great potential for spiritual growth and understanding.
So Happy Jupiter in Libra Every One. Make the most of it, and enjoy the love coming your way.
I am working on some spiritual exercises for us all, and will be posting them to my general blog as I create them.
Hello Fellow Travelers.
Well this month has almost gotten away from me, but I think I'm back on track. It's a confusing time for most of us. Boundaries and beliefs are being shattered if you are a seeker. We are re-birthing. It's painful to give birth. Higher consciousness is not a state of bliss where all is perfect, like the other side, no its a place of connecting to the Universe FOR REAL, and dealing with all the barriers you have put in your path to get there requires examination, processing and cleaning the clutter. You're still gonna be you with all your flaws, but you are going to be someone of a higher consciousness, and a lot of that involves seeing the pain in the world. Once you recognize the pain in the world, you will never be the same. You can no longer turn your back, pretend its not there, think about it another day, watch TV and put it out of your mind. Nope once the Genie is out of the bottle, you see the suffering in the world and it HURTS. But it hurts so you will do something about it. Pick a cause and try to make it right. So how do you get there, or know if you are there?
Well the astrological happenings of Sept are the end of the road aspect. We are turning a corner. I kept telling you to get your act together, and this is it. Many aspects this month will push every button you have. There was a Lunar eclipse mid August, a new moon solar eclipse on Sept 1, another Lunar eclipse on Sept 16th, and another new moon on Sept 30th, two in one month. This is always significant, but with 3 eclipses as well, whew, the Universe is pushing all of our emotional buttons and saying "do you get it yet? Do you get it? Are you trying ignore my knocks on the door. Put down the remote control, the chocolate, the booze and drugs, the addictions that you choose to avoid facing reality and FACE REALITY." Big emotions are coming up. You might be having very unsettling dreams, dark dreams that you don't want to deal with, but this is a push from the conscious and the unconscious to LOOK AT THE DARK SIDE of your emotions. Therein you will find BALANCE inside, and complete balance between dark and light, good and bad, negative and positive IS nirvana. Face you dark side so you can befriend it. Look at your mistakes and take ownership of them, look them in the eye, so you can release the pain, and embrace the fact that you are fallible, you make mistakes, you are not perfect. That's part of who you are. Own it. Forgiving yourself is the job here, and its a doozie.
Jupiter went into Libra on Sept 9th. This is a REALLY BIG DEAL. I am going to write a separate blog in a few days just about Jupiter in Libra and what it means for the next year. Jupiter is abundance, Libra is Love. People are going to want to make love not war, they are going to want justice because Libra is the attempt to balance the scales evenly. Libra is about beauty and partnership and art and aesthetics. I, me, mine is ending and we are going to want to come together, join together, and make changes.
On the 17th & 18th expect some explosive national news about celebrities or politicians. On the 19-21 its time to be mellow, mend fences.
On Sept 22nd Mercury goes direct in Virgo. YEAH! its also in harmony to Pluto and profound ideas can come through. The Sun moves into Libra this day too, joining Jupiter on the 26th. The 26th is an amazing day, and you might feel good and lazy that day too, but don't waste it. Get out and about and opportunity can come looking for you in amazing ways.
September 30th is the second new moon now in Libra. It joins Jupiter and the Sun. It's big, bountiful new beginnings day. Expect amazing world news; find solutions for global problems; find ways to make your life happier and more fun; step up and be a Leader now, as people will love you!
And through the month Neptune and Saturn are trying to manifest dreams into reality, which may sound great but its a big struggle between these two. Uranus and Pluto are still squaring off, the old vs the new. And Eris the new revolutionary is riding beside Uranus ready for change and justice, pushing harder for it everyday. And Jupiter in Libra is a big help to them here, as both are in Aries and Jupiter in Libra is an opposition, trying to find the middle ground of the see saw.
So if your head is spinning, its OK, it should be! We are being kneaded like bread dough on a daily basis. The road ahead is uncharted territory, we need to know ourselves as best we can for the coming times, the good and the bad. Time to be a Mensch and help right some of the wrongs in the world, and within ourselves. God is everywhere. Never forget you are never alone. Never. Call upon your Higher Self, Your Guardians, Your Angels and Your Creator. They will come running if you ask. And never forget YOU are God too. God doesn't make junk. You are one of a kind. Amazing. Special. Bring your gifts to the world by forgiving yourself and loving yourself, and be an example to others of how to get there too.
Love and Blessings till next time.
