JUPITER Stationary in SCO – Going Retro on March 8 (until July 10): Inner Empowering Change

1 Mar

Astrological Synchronicities never seize to amaze me!

This week, our Astro 404 (Transits) group reached JUPITER.
Our journey together expands, since the group prefers going deeper, and focusing in each meeting only on ONE Planet and its transits – which itself is already very much apropos JUPITER in SCO this year!
JUPITER ‘happened’ to be on, just one week before it goes retro on March 8 – and as it is a strong focus for 2 – 3 weeks around that date. A perfect timing arranged itself!
So in the group we had the chance to dig for Scorpionic gifts that reveal themselves this year, through awareness of what’s going on under the surface, and had been hidden or covered for various reasons…
What happens when you give it space?

These are the themes for JUPITER in SCO, now doing the ‘U-turn’ to go retro (inward-backward) for (yearly) 4 months, from March 8 to July 10, 2018 (close to the SOLAR Eclipse NM on July 12).

JUPITER in SCO (since Oct 10, 2017) has brought awareness to ‘scary things’ that really need to change. 
Just to clarify:
It isn’t always ‘good’ with JUPITER (an ‘Astro myth’, based on simplification, and black-white notion for prediction, and control). 

YES, JUPITER is the largest Planet of the Solar System, and its archetypal principle is expansion – more and bigger. This year, SCORPIO is BIG.
And yes, SCO can be big-time scary, esp. when we feel out of control, facing the changes happening.
“We live in a climate of change”, is what my Yoga teacher said in opening words of wisdom before class this week.
YES, a climate of change on all levels, climate change included.
JUPITER’s gift is to see the bigger picture – in this case of what’s UP for change, i.o.w., it gets bigger so that change for the better can happen.

 

Dr. Jeckyll / Mr. Hyde

JUPITER’s deep dive through SCO last October started simultaneously with the Me Too Movement that has brought viral awareness’ to the magnitude of sexual assault and harassment:
“The phrase “Me too” was tweeted by Alyssa Milano around noon on October 15, 2017 and had been used more than 200,000 times by the end of the day!”

Clearly, a painfully obvious and potent example of awareness of what’s going on ‘under the radar’ yet in plain sight, leading to much needed change of what was condoned by cultural and societal norms.

Abuse of power (combination of JUPITER in SCO and its ruler PLUTO in CAP) in societal, political context has been blatantly, painfully obvious too over the Fall and Winter…

Similarly, with JUPITER in SCO and PLUTO in CAP more public awareness comes to the mountains of (esp. plastic) garbage that humanity produces. I saw a video recently showing the worldwide plastic dumped would cover 10 inch high the whole country of Argentina! SO not sustainable, and suicidal for humanity.
Mountains of Waste (on many levels) is really the issue here.
The awareness that REALLY brings change (sometimes with SCO it needs to get painful to get our attention…) needs to be broader, and perhaps reach us on deeper transformational levels.

Now, under JUPITER in SCO it’s time to re-address what’s still unprocessed, and to reach empowering change from within.

Maybe some of the ‘external’ events have evoked and provoked (SCO) of memories of what’s stuck in old, hidden dark inner corners of the psyche.

JUPITER is a socio-cultural Archetype, showing (in direct motion) what society and culture sanctions – or gets away with.

When in retro we need to find our own moral-ethical compass – and our inner happiness – through empowering change, in SCORPIO.

 

Let’s also tune into the dance with other Planetary Archetypes that JUPITER will do while still in SCO this year (8 more months, until Nov 8):

JUPITER in SCO was recently in Square with the Nodal Axis in AQ – LEO end of Dec 2017 / early Jan 2018:
LEO says: Show yourself with all your sides, don’t hide. And don’t just witness and watch others / their show / get sucked into the internet world (low AQ vibes) – express yourself, be creative, play.
Love yourself, and allow yourself to be seen and loved – so transformational.

JUPITER in SCO was and will again be in Water Trine with NEPTUNE in PI, Dec 2018, and from May to Aug (exact May 25 and Aug 19):
Allowing things to be washed away and dissolved. Can be also a ‘big flood’.

JUPITER in SCO is this year in Sextile with PLUTO (Ruler of SCO): Jan (exact Jan 15), Apr (exact Apr 14), and Sept (exact Sept 12):
Abuse of power and waste of time and energy is SO up for change.

JUPITER in SCO will go into Water Trine with CHIRON in PI in Oct / Nov (exact Nov 1) – already a wide / almost Trine now in March as JUPITER goes retro:
Deep connection is healing and transforming.

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’ those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘HUB OF THE WHEEL’where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our small, intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

LILITH Enters CAPRICORN (Nov 8 – Aug 6, 2018): Wild & Wise Inner Integrity and Leadership

2 Nov

 

LILITH, the Archetype of the ‘Wild Woman’, or rather ‘Unconditioned Nature’ will enter CAPRICORN on Nov 8.

LILITH has a 9-year cycle, and hasn’t been in CAP since 2009.
‘She’ travels 9 month in one sign – a ‘pregnancy phase’ to cultivate intrinsic qualities of that Zodiac energy, through our True, unconditioned Nature.
And by the way, ‘she’ never goes retro.

 

Quick re-CAP, for the context:

 
Under LILITH in SAG over the last 9 months since Feb we’ve seen through the ‘fake’, manipulative agenda, empty promises, and life threatening ‘stories’ and beliefs.
Have you been able to cut through and rise beyond that, and be in your intrinsic Truth?
What does that look like?
LILITH from SAG to CAP shows collectively: The ‘Wild Feminine’ / our Inner ‘Wild Nature’ has been in ‘her’ Truth, and wants to live in Integrity and mature Leadership now!
 
If you have a CAPRICORN side in you it gets ‘lilified’:
Done with guilt and ‘shoulds’, taking too much on, feeling resentful… you name it. Heavy, heavy stuff. Lighten the load!
LILITH in CAP is quite ZEN about things.

Simplicity beyond complexity.

AGE… what age? A matter of Spirit.
For / with LILITH, nobody’s ‘too young for’ or ‘too old for’ what they’re wildly-authentically capable of.
Same goes for all sorts of hierarchies and classes, on the ‘mountain’ / ‘pyramid’ of society.
LILITH is into re-establishing natural order and natural law.

LILITH from SAG to CAP shows collectively and for us personally:
The ‘Wild Feminine’ / our Inner ‘wild’ Nature has been in ‘her’ Truth, and wants to see Integrity and mature Leadership incl. Life Leadership now!
Being the Change, for Real.

If you have a CAP side in you it gets ‘lilified’, and infused with untameable and indomitable Spirit.

LILITH in YOUR chart…

…shows where YOU need to be in tune with YOUR nature, which areas of life trigger that (money, children, relationships, travel, career…) and in what way (sign, and aspects to other planets).

So, give the inner CAP LILITH a good outlet in the next 9 months, and be in the authentic, mature and FREE Spirit of Integrity and Leadership.
It’s Your Life and Your Time!

On a spiritual level, the LILITH in CAP ‘Call of the Mountain’ is to find the ultimate ‘purpose in life’ in the unconditioned Nature of the Self.

If you have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in CAP…
…and for all of us, where CAP is in our charts, this is the 9-month ‘pregnancy’ phase to cultivate being in natural integrity with our True Self ♥

 

LILITH is now ahead of SATURN (since end of Aug) in late SAG:
Our intrinsic Truth, and Path leads us on, and helps overcome old limiting beliefs and ‘stories’, ‘shoulds’ and externalized authority.

Which prepared us for LILITH now crossing the ‘Integrity Point’ from SAG to CAP, where it becomes mandatory and so rewarding to walk our talk, and be consistent in our natural authority and maturity.

The powerfully wild and wise Crone / Elder got his / her act together, and offers inner counsel.
Therefore, find support from the realm of the Grandmothers and Elders who hold traditional and ancient wisdom.
Tune into your inner future Crone / Elder Self, and find simple straightforward support.

 

LILITH in ‘traditional Astrology’ (if considered as an Archetype at all!) represents the wild and free inner Feminine. ‘She’ is a force of Nature, and relies on ‘her’ inner natural knowing.

‘She’ fiercely resists being conditioned, subordinated, disrespected, and ‘used’, in societal, patriarchal ways, in terms of what a woman (and: Nature) is ‘supposed to be’, as defined by patriarchal values.
End of Oct, LILITH just crossed the Galactic Center (end of SAG), the ‘deep end’ from which ultimate Truth can be traced. The big mystery of the GC (Is it a ‘black hole’? A birthing place of our Solar System and Life on Earth?) evokes deep, unanswerable quests and inquiry into the Nature of Life itself.
On a more ‘down-to-Earth’ level, when the GC is activated, it’s like a vortex into the Unknown, or a ‘Pandora’s Box’ from which all kind of things are flying out / get absorbed into.

Naturally, the association with the ‘Me Too’ Wave comes to mind (which started mid-Oct, when JUPITER had just entered SCO too), as ‘Wild Women and Men’ spoke their truth about sexual harassment and abuse – which showed the shocking magnitude of the issue.
Now what? Many people wonder.
Was it just ‘dumped’ out into public?
Will it be forgotten again as new shock and awe phenomena stream through the media landscape?
Will we even be desensitized, through the bombardment with such scandals?
How can the abuse be processed???
How do we know it’s not all again just statements and ‘empty promises’ but real change, through people showing up differently with each other, in all types of encounters and energy exchanges, and towards Nature???

 

LILITH crossing over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAPRICORN where ‘she’ will meet PLUTO next Spring will help move Humanity forward into taking Responsibility and stepping into Leadership, rather than blaming external authority.

We’re the one’s we’ve been waiting for, and looking up to.
I.o.w., we can ‘get the job done’. The question is not ‘if’ (disempowering) but HOW?
‘She’ holds us accountable, and gives us simple, natural support, as in:

  • What would your wise inner Elder / a role model / someone you respect and admire say to this… situation?
  • What would you know is in Integrity, as the ‘high road’?
  • What’s the most mature and responsible way of being in this situation (not because someone / society says so but because YOU know deep inside)?
  • How can you use (be with or learn from) this situation, for the Highest Purpose?
  • Being pragmatic and outcome oriented (CAP), what would be the best, most mature and effective approach?
  • By the way: Coach yourself! Says LILITH.

 

CAP rules old age, as well as ancient & timeless teachings and practices that simply ‘work’.

Connecting with wise Elders and your own inner Crone or Sage, and following your instinctual Spirit (perhaps also supported by Power Animals) help with finding what matters, and making simple decisions in challenging situations that require maturity and integrity.

 

CAP works with Nature and the Land.

Nature and the Earth have shown us their fierce responses to not being in Balance and ‘overburdened’ by humanity, through catastrophes that exponentially increased over this year.
LILITH in CAP gives us a chance and says, it’s TIME, to work respectfully and with integrity WITH Nature and the Land.
Abuse will have repercussions (PLUTO in CAP, and JUPITER in SCO this year which is ruled by PLUTO – a fierce LILITH – PLUTO – JUPITER dynamic!).


LILITH was the last time in CAP from Jan – Sept 2009.

The last big economic crisis had started in the U.S. (also activated by SATURN in VIRGO which rules the economy, opposite URANUS in PISCES – chaos and unpredictability).

What was your maturation at the time (remember?), and how could you, rather than going into fear and depression (low vibrations of CAP) find true purpose, build based on integrity, and stick to it, consistently, one step at a time?
How do you look back at your experience then? 

 

LILITH will align with PLUTO in May 2018 (every 9 ½ years),
starting a new decade long cycle relating to the deep, transformational wisdom that is available as we tune into inner nature and into Mother Nature in her capacity to transform and renew. Core integrity and responsibility are crucial now – rather than exploitation of resources, imposing human will onto Nature, or disrespecting others and our time on Earth….

 

LILITH affects until early Aug 2018 the area of your life that is related to CAP in your chart (SUN, MOON, Planets, AC/ MC, House/s).

LILITH’s course in Nov / Dec 2017 will be very stimulating for you if you have SUN, MOON, Planets, AC / MC in early CAP, and it will charge / creatively challenge your early AR, CAN, and LIBRA themes.

 

The Focused Transit Workshop

LILITH into CAPRICORN – Wild & Wise Inner Integrity and Leadership

ON Nov 8 (the day when LILITH enters CAP)
will be dedicated to the LILITH Archetype in general, and in YOUR chart and life.

We’ll invoke and welcome LILITH’s entry into CAPRICORN on the same day (NOV 8), and discuss how to be best aligned with it, for the upcoming 9 months, customized for your astrological themes.

Relevant esp. for all of you with a strong LILITH in your chart, or SUN, MOON, AC, MC or planets in CAP, or in the other cardinal signs AR, CAN, and LIB. In doubt, I can check for you.

If you’d like to join this focused LILITH Workshop please register via email (to licht@islandnet.com), with your complete birth info (date, time, place). Welcome!
I’m available for your preliminary questions too, of course.

Please find the curriculum of classes and workshops in more detail here,
and current ones on my FB Page.
