JUPITER into SCORPIO (Oct 10, 2017 – Nov 9, 2018) :: Deep Dive into the Alchemy

9 Oct

Mighty JUPITER has come to the end of its 13-month journey through LIBRA (09/09, 2016 – 10/10, 2017), and moves over theTipping Point’ into SCORPIO tomorrow, Oct 10!

Harvesting the LIBRAN gifts that JUPITER has brought with questions like these can be quite fruitful:

  • What have you seen more clearly about relationships with significant others and yourself IN relatedness, over the last year? 
  • What did you attract in others as a reflection of yourself (missing parts, blind spots, shadow projection)?
  • Which important choices came up for you, and how did you go about choosing wisely?
  • How do you go about restoring inner and outer peace and balance, in a world of turmoil (JUPITER in LI has been opposed by URANUS in ARIES 3 times, in Dec 2016, March and Sept 2017)?

The area of life related to LIBRA in your chart (House, Planets) has been ‘blown up’ over the last year, so that there can be more SPACE around it that allows for (mutual) growth.

 

 

On the LIBRA – SCORPIO ‘Tipping Point’,

Choices (or a Choiceless Choice?) lead to Change!
Choosing from Peace.
Deep Journey into Change.

The cusp from LIBRA to SCORPIO is not ‘just’ a Tipping Point.

 
It’s also an ‘ALCHEMY Point’, and a Magical Zone.

SO much MAGIC is showing up these days – if we invite it, and are open and grateful (JUPITERian qualities)!

I’ve been blessed with a whole domino effect of Magic at and since a personal retreat this Thanksgiving weekend, where a recurring theme has been ‘Free Fall into the Timeless’ 
Inquiries like:
Freedom that has no opposite.
Love that has no opposite.
…have been gifts that open tremendous SPACE – very JUPITERian…

And then, intimate encounters (LIBRA – SCORPIO) with Nature Beings (Plants, Trees, Animals, the Elements) have shown me the Timelessness yet natural Timeliness they’re always in.
What they teach me in that moment is just perfectly what resonates and what I need to hear. What looks like ‘synchronicities’ seems more the result of naturally being ‘at the right time at the right place’ without resisting, without ulterior agenda.

The Wisdom of Nature, and the Intimacy with Life as it Unfolds….

It can’t be actually described and talked about (as airy LIBRA would like to – which would also lead to Libran comparisons…) since it’s a very visceral sense of what happens – the SCORPIO realm.

Have you tapped into the ‘Magic Zone’ and the Alchemy too, these days?

On the ‘Alchemy Point’ encounters happen, and  ‘ingredients’ are ‘married’, to co-create something bigger than the sum of them.
If the ‘match’ is magical powerful change is afoot!
JUPITER into SCORPIO shows us opportunities to go into magical and alchemical change – if we trust the Unknown…

…and dig deeply into our taboo, repressed, or emotionally (apparently) controlled experiences, are offered now (galore!) to alchemically / psychologically / spiritually, or even ‘just’ instinctively process them.

Which can reveal hidden treasures and powerful resources that we might have buried from the world and ourselves.
We don’t know yet what’s ‘behind the veil’ and underneath the cover. That’s the whole point.
Who knows what comes from that?!
 

A lot (JUPITER) is due for transformation now.
In Society and the World at large, and in our personal inner worlds.
My sense is, A LOT of hidden agenda will be revealed in the World which inevitably leads to change.

JUPITER in LIBRA has brought the themes of relatedness, fairness, equality, balance, and peace so strongly to our awareness…
Not that it’s ‘all good’ in that realm as ‘benefic JUPITER’ has visited that realm (as the old-world polarized / simplistic Astrology would have suggested) – in fact it can have the opposite effect.

If there’s a ‘formula’ for a JUPITER Transit, it’s more like:
The theme gets bigger, so that we can fully SEE what’s going on there (a magnifying glass effect), to create space around it,  and use the opportunities to outgrow the old.

People and other ‘partners’ (even shadow projections) have come into our lives who show us a mirror (LIBRA) of what’s due for transformation (SCO).

Now, JUPITER in SCO helps us with processing what’s ‘in the dark’ – maybe because the theme is everywhere, lots of others are ‘coming out’ with taboos and under cover issues, and massive processing is going on.

Having found good partners (LIBRA), and being in good relations with others who also go into depth and darkness (SCO) can help. Whether they are physically present, or whether there’s lots of space between you – even all around the globe (JUPITER).
Yet, it’s of course an ‘inside job’ for everyone – with the inner JUPITERian Mentor on your side. No other person can do it ‘for you’.
It’s your inner access to nature-ALL Power (SCO). 

Power of Love?
Power of Freedom?
Finding a motto that speaks deeply to you and guides you on the Journey can help.

 

SCORPIO, PLUTO, and the Shadow

SCO is ruled by PLUTO which is more outwardly ‘active’ again as it’s going direct / forward from Earth perspective, since Sept 28, calling us to follow the Power of the ‘Body Wisdom’ (Sabian Symbol for the PLUTO Turning Point degree at 17 CAP) for empowered change.

The ‘original’ PLUTO in our chart points to our inner Power Centre in the Core of our Being, or rather:
How historic / societal conditioning has repressed and controlled our Power, and what needs to transform in us to step into it.


Similar to Persephone’s decent into the realm of PLUTO / Hades in Fall where an Initiation happens before ‘she’ and Nature come back in Spring, we might need to ‘dive’ into our inner ‘Underworld’ in the next while, for a deep regeneration and re-empowerment from within.

Perhaps to alchemically transform the ‘lead’ of ego consciousness into the ‘Gold’ of the pure Self.
Not by ‘killing’ the ego (which still comes from a dualistic / separative ego consciousness) but by making it conscious, by exposing the dark and sticky attachments that drain our energy like a vampire to the light.

Jekyll / Hyde

How do we recognize the ego’s ways?
In SCO, it ‘should be’ actually quite easy because it can get so intense when it displays low vibrational responses of…
…obsessions, compulsions, and various needs for control, as if there were inner demons that have a hold on you, or ‘hungry ghosts’ (a Buddhist term for desires that can never be satisfied – the belly is always bigger than the mouth).
And since these things are embarrassing, there’s a shame factor involved as well that keeps things under wraps – which can create a vicious circle.

The energy is often released through behavioral symptoms like being secretive, involving ‘allies’ into one’s ’cause’ and controlling them, being cynical, hurtful (knowing where to ‘bite’ others in their vulnerable side) in order to not get hurt, being manipulative…
Sometimes behind all this is a deep fear of death – the ultimate loss of control.
In SCO strong and deep emotions (SCO is a fixed Water sign) can be hermetically sealed in the Alchemy retort.

JUPITER in SCO brings Awareness to all this, has us face our hidden sides, inner darkness and inner light, and (RE)discover our Soul Power that’s the catalyst for change.

Awareness, witnessing, and holding space (JUPITER) is often ‘all’ it takes to let things run their course and to outgrow them gradually.
After all, the pristine Lotus Flower too, is rooted in the murky Scorpionic swamp.

 

Here is the JUPITER-into SCORPIO chart – viewed from Victoria BC.

 

As you see, JUPITER leads into SCO.
It catalyzes the other planetary Archetypes and their alignments into the Alchemy:

SUN / MERCURY – rather than letting the Mind run the show, be mindful and conscious of what’s going on;
VENUS / MARS opposing CHIRON, in T-square with SATURN / LILITH – rather than a wounding battle of the sexes that goes nowhere, except into old patterns and beliefs, a sacred union that heals and points to the ultimate unknowable…

MERCURY (on Oct 17), the SUN (on Oct 22), VENUS (on Nov 1), and MARS (on Dec 9) will follow into SCORPIO.
When these personal planets / planetary Archetypes unite with JUPITER their qualities get enhanced through a deepening:

MERCURY / JUPITER (Oct 19): More depth through communication that goes under the skin.
SUN / JUPITER (Oct 26 – also the day of MOON / PLUTO!): Massive Consciousness about the Change that’s needed and is under way.
VENUS / JUPITER (Nov 13): Magnetized by the Power of Love.
MARS / JUPITER (Jan 7): Radical Purge and Transformation.

Every month, the intense and powerful SCORPIO MOON will unite with JUPITER which can evoke deep, amplified emotions – quite the time for purging and alchemical change from within – maybe after a few rounds. Be gentle with yourself and your environment, as you get ‘a hang of it’. And have a MOON calendar at hand..
First encounters of JUPITER / MOON in SCO:
Oct 19 (right after the late LI New Moon!), Nov 16, Dec 14.

 

JUPITER’s Gifts for SCORPIOS & SCORPIO Mini Generations


JUPITER in SCO offers this year extraordinary opportunities for a deepening and expansion of consciousness for whole groups of ‘SCO Mini Generations’, and of course for everyone with SUN, MOON, AC, and personal Planets (MERCURY, VENUS, MARS) in SCO.


Whichever Planetary Archetype is in SCO for you gets enhanced – with the opportunity to be alchemically transformed into coming even more from Soul Power – which changes everything.

What are the ‘SCORPIO Mini Generations’?
All of us born with slow moving, societal (JUPITER, CHIRON, SATURN) and transpersonal, evolutionary Planets (URANUS, NEPTUNE, PLUTO) in SCORPIO.

And that’s a LOT of us!
B.t.w., I give the whole time spectrum from first entry into SCO until final exit, incl. brief intervals back in LIBRA or forward in SAG. In doubt get in touch with me, and I can let you know from your birth chart, or set up your chart if you don’t have it yet.

Here are the ‘Mini Generations’, with ‘working titles’.
Expanding on their generational themes would be a topic for another, extensive blog post – perhaps during JUPITER in SCO?

These phases of Planets moving through SCORPIO had a certain signature / Zeitgeist.
Maybe you remember some of them, how they changed you, through going through a deep psychological process, esp. related to the area in your life related to the SCORPIO House in your chart. 

 

Now, as JUPITER initiates SCORPIO again, we’re all exposed to more depth, to SEE and be fully aware of what’s been hidden (incl. what we were hiding from ourselves), to process and purge deep stuff and ‘dark matter’, and allow it to transform into pure ‘Gold’.

May we come out deeply changed, perhaps like a Phoenix out of the Ashes, having burnt off and outgrown old consciousness, when JUPITER crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ on Nov 9, 2018!

 

You’re invited to a private JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Session, during the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10 / 10 – 11 / 11, 2017), where we intentionally, and with the astrological map & compass, plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, go into, and focus on:
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

You can find out more about the Deep Dive Sessions at my FB Page Event.
If you’re new to my services I welcome you to get in touch before booking, if you have preliminary questions, and to get to know each other a bit before we ‘dive in’.
