JUPITER at 13°13′ LIBRA goes direct on June 9 (13 min after the Full Moon!): Wise Choices, Number 13, and Balance of Inner Masculine and Feminine

8 Jun

The SAG – GEMINI Full Moon (blog post to follow) catalyzes other Planetary activation – foremost:
JUPITER (ruler of the MOON sign – SAG!) going direct only 13 min. after the exact Full Moon!

Jupiter and Earth

Plus: JUPITER is in LIBRA, and a Full Moon with its polarity axis has a LIBRAN tone to it – it’s all about Balance, and Right Relationship.

Quite the JUPITER Month of June: As JUPITER ‘stations’ now, to shift from travelling retro (since early Feb) to direct (forward from Earth perspective) all things JUPITER and LIBRA are quite a highlight, and strongly in our awareness (JUPITER is like a magnifier) this month of June.

Ha, interesting that the month of JUNE was named after JUNO, JUPITER’s wife, and LIBRA is the sign of relationship. The Asteroid JUNO by the way tells us about our inner themes round committed relationships. Definitely worth exploring, as a focus, and since JUPITER in LIBRA is so strong now. Get in touch with me (contact info below) if you’d like to take this opportunity.

And back to LIBRA: The BIG question is: Who and what is a ‘good match’? Where the synergy of the two creates ‘1 + 1 = 3’ , more than the sum of its parts, and definitely not less…
Relationship themes are big this month, and already ‘blown up’ since JUPITER entered LIBRA, 09/09/2016. The ‘Big One’ will be still in LIBRA until 10/10/2017. The dates themselves suggest nice symmetry and harmony. JUPITER also shows us where we are idealistic (SATURN is the reality check).

Questions of Wise Choices, Peace, Balance, Relationship on all levels are important – not necessarily a ‘given’ (just look at the geopolitical scene, and our personal human condition)… but Growth (JUPITER) in those areas is calling, and there’s no lack of opportunities (JUPITER).

What brings us back into BALANCE? Making wise choices?
As the Bridge image suggests, building bridges is a good thing, yet sometimes, if there’s not really a common ground, or not a balance of giving and receiving, outgrowing a relationship is ok too.
Lots of clients with JUPITER transiting their 7th or 9th House literally feel they’ve outgrown a relationship. JUPITER in LIBRA has a similar effect to all of us, in the area where LIBRA is in our chart (10th House: The Public, 11th House: Community, Friends…).

Are you part of a mini-generation, with a slow moving Planet in LIBRA?
NEPTUNE in LIBRA (Oct 1942 – Oct 1956)
URANUS in LIBRA (Oct 1968 – Nov 1974)
PLUTO in LIBRA (Oct 1971 – Aug 1984)

JUPITER makes your LIBRAN themes bigger – perhaps to literally outgrow generational, historic conditioning around them:

For NEPTUNE in LIBRA, the romantic / disappointment / sacrificial quality relationships can take, yet also relationships as a spiritual journey.

For URANUS in LIBRA (the children of the NEPTUNE in LIBRA gen), having experienced disruption and divorce, possibly re-creating those patterns, and / or having a strong notion for independence. Yet also the chance to re-invent relationship that does allow for maximum self realization.

For PLUTO in LIBRA (also children of the NEPTUNE in LIBRA gen), on an inter-personal level the experience of power in / through relationships: The relationship has power, the other has power, I have power when I’m in the right relationship (or NOT in relationship). A deeper question might be: Who and what am I without relationship?
With PLUTO, it’s not about personal power but the power of Life, of Nature that can’t be argued 🙂

If you are in one of these mini generations (born 1942 – 1956, or 1968 – 1984), or have LIBRA otherwise prominent in your chart, I invite you to come and explore the opportunities for growth that JUPITER offers now. 

Relationship is also a reflection, and often a projection of the shadow that we don’t want to see in ourselves… and sometimes it takes the Medicine of SCORPIO (where JUPITER will immerse us in, from 10/10 on) to look under the surface…

If you feel called to check in astrologically what JUPITER in LIBRA shows you personally, and where Growth-through-Balance can unfold now, one option would be short LIBRA focused session (30 – 40 min), or come for a more comprehensive and encompassing 90 min – 2 hr full session. 
Maybe it’s time for an update anyway?

Tomorrow, literally just 13 min after the exact Full Moon, JUPITER goes direct at 13°13′ LIBRA – what’s with all that symmetry…?

Even thought this FRIDAY is not a 13th – the misunderstood Day of the Sacred Feminine (13 Moons & VENUS-day), the message about the Number 13 with JUPITER is quite striking.
Message and Meaning (GEMINI – SAG)…
Maybe the cosmic message points us to the already unfolding renaissance of the Sacred Feminine, and an incentive for Balance and Sacred Marriage (LIBRA) of Masculine and Feminine on Planet Earth.

The next level, after the New Moon in GEM on May 25 that initiated a new dialogue, and new Inner Alchemy!

* JUPITER in ‘Square Dance’ with VENUS / PLUTO (exact Nov 24 / 25): Balance and Integrity in Relationships on all Levels, and with All our Relations.

24 Nov

JUPITER entered LIBRA on Sept 9, for 1 year and 1 month, until Oct 10, 2017, and the issues of choices, relationships and agreements / contracts, balance, justice, fairness, harmony, peace become ‘bigger’, and we become aware how important they are.  

Today Nov 24 – U.S. Thanksgiving Day, JUPITER in LIBRA (conjunct SATURN in the U.S. chart) is for the first time (again March 30 and Aug 4, 2017) square PLUTO in CAP. VENUS will join and pass PLUTO tomorrow Nov 25. Sounds like a strange ‘square dance’ indeed.

And we see heightened tension and conflict over issues of integrity, sustainability, respect and wise use of natural resources (all CAP themes). PLUTO brings up the ugly face of how humans and human structures have abused, wasted, and disrespected the Earth, esp. since PLUTO was the last time in CAP in the late 18th century. PLUTO shows where what’s unsustainable and destructive must change and regenerate from the core (not just on the surface).

 

Earth YinYang

 

Makes me think of the North Dakota Water Protectors immediately. Water IS essential, WATER IS LIFE. Perhaps with JUPITER and VENUS entering the picture now, more supportive attention is drawn to the issue now – I read the United Nations considered intervening. There is a lot of public awareness – in the social media, yet strangely enough, Bernie Sanders seems to be the only prominent politician who takes a clear pronounced stand – against the pipeline (“Black snake” – very PLUTO), and for protection of Native land and natural resources of. Bernie was born with VENUS in LIBRA opp. his MOON / MARS in ARIES (which is transited by URANUS this year and next – very raw and revolutionary).
Looks like we’ll hear more about clashes of radical warriors (URANUS in ARIES, also on the U.S. CHIRON) and established power institutions that seem to become more militarized now even (PLUTO in CAP) as URANUS will square the U.S. PLUTO in the next 2 years.

In our personal lives, ‘being the change’ and bringing our soul-full potential to the table at these intense times of accelerating (URANUS) deep change (PLUTO in CAP) has to do with being alert and awake, and doing what needs to be done in the moment (URANUS), while honouring and enhancing peace, fairness, and balance (JUPITER in LI – which approaches opposition with URANUS, exact Dec 26).

Societally, there is urgency (UR in AR) to act NOW, in order to maintain and protect balance in nature, and so that ecosystems and species can not only survive (AR) but regenerate (PLU).

It’s also a heightened time for the ‘fine art’ of balance between being true to ourselves (AR) while bringing any kind of relationships (LIBRA) to a new level that serves the highest purpose (CAP). What doesn’t, and can’t sustain is being purged, transformed, and ‘repurposed’, in this Plutonic, cathartic clearing process.

 

Speaking of Relationships:

Are you aware that relationships are one of the main focuses and service fields in my Astrology consulting practice?

  • As a couple come to a session together (whether in person or via skype) to shed light on their dynamics and evolution of your relationship, from a ‘cosmic perspective’.
  • Or come by yourself, and we explore relationship themes for you and your partner (with their permission).
  • I also offer group relationship sessions (for 3+ people in a group setting).
  • Good news on the financial side:
    I’ll offer Treat Time again (offer to come, stay tuned for the blog post!) Dec 1 – 21 where you get 20-30% discount on sessions, plus 2-for-1 sessions available!

Feel free to send me a message to licht@islandnet.com or call me (250 381 4299) if you have questions how a relationship session could look like, and what it involves.

* FALL EQUINOX (Sept 23) – Perfect Balance

21 Sep

* FALL EQUINOX (Sept 23) – Perfect Balance

 Sydney Beach Circle

Amazing Sand Art by Jim Denevan

Balance – Balance – Balance…

… is a big theme at this seasonal time of year, and also for what’s been up recently and is coming to fruition now:

~ Sept 12 / 13 New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse with VIR – PI with Balance theme.

~ LUNAR NORTH NODE, and LILITH, both presently in very early LI, on the cusp of the Equinox Point = with the EQUINOX SUN.

~ MERCURY retro in LIBRA

~ FALL EQUINOX

~ Sept 27 / 28 TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE / Full Moon in early ARIES / LIBRA

Let’s hold space, and find inner Balance, these times when it is more than ever required.

Wise choices result.

The SUN crosses from VIRGO to LIBRA this year on WED Sept 23 at 1:22 am PDT, the sacred point where ‘Perfect Balance’ resides:

On Sept 22 and 23, the days and nights are exactly equally long in the Northern and Southern hemisphere, as the SUN crosses exactly above the Equator!

Nice simple and clear astronomical illustration: http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/september-equinox.html#what

Equi-nox literally means in Latin: Equal night.

 

Here is the chart of the FALL EQUINOX, as seen from Victoria BC.

Check out the LUNAR NORTH NODE and LILITH, both presently in very early LI, with the EQUINOX SUN, between Partial Solar and Total Lunar Eclipse.

Fall Equinox 2015

With the FALL EQUINOX, we are moving from the ‘Realm of the Sun’ – Spring and Summer in the Northern hemisphere when day light is longer than the night time, to the ‘Realm of the Moon’ – Fall and Winter, when night hours are longer than day light.

On this sacred Balance Point, we are celebrating one of the Four Solar Turning Points of the Year: Autumnal Equinox, a.k.a. Mabon.

In the Medicine Wheel it is related to the West, the place of the Setting Sun.

Which corresponds with LIBRA in the Zodiac, the energy we are moving into now with the Fall Equinox: LIBRA rules in the horoscope the 7th house above the Western horizon – the astrological field related to one-on-one relationships with significant others in our lives.

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with Mabon – Fall Equinox – related to the West.

In the Southern hemisphere, SPRING returns.

Happy Spring Equinox, dear friends in the Southern Lands of Planet Earth!
