Christchurch, seconds after the 2011 earthquake struck. Mark Guadalupe
Rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future.
The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter in Libra inconjunct Chiron, started the 2016 set of SIX aspects in retrograde, reverse order through May 18. The wildest of the set, is the March 2 Jupiter opposite Uranus!
We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the seven time Uranus square Pluto since 2010! At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The square is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before.
Uranus has squared Pluto from the Aries side. Now we have Jupiter square Pluto from the Libra side, opposite Uranus!
During these final days of Uranus square Pluto, we have acquired a new president, elected under the auspice of the first Jupiter square Pluto in Capricorn Nov 24, 2017. The square was part of a 5 planet TSquare that day, with slow moving outer planets at each point – meaning it had long term impact! See more. It was the aspect leading up to the Nov 8 vote, and became the 1st exact aspect, the opening aspect, after the Nov 8 Presidential Election!
Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. March 2 it opposes Uranus, changes, rebellion! It can be like an explosion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.
Pluto in Capricorn works with financial and health resources, environmental and animal welfare, which are undergoing dramatic changes. Jupiter’s ‘truth’ and opinions are running the gamut. The tables have turned and the Old Guard Capricorn is protecting and walling in its own. Pluto rules money, old money, oil money. Pluto brings greed, the worst fears of poverty and loss of medical insurances. At best it wants to share and heal, use investments for the greater good.
Libra calls for negotiation, getting to know others better. Jupiter in Libra concerns relationships, social and cultural matters – immigrants, foreign relations. Jupiter calls for the best and highest education. In Libra it often uses examples of daily living, metaphors ~ a way of describing something by equating it with something else. This square is tilting the entire US education system with the appointment of Betsy DeVos. A new balance is being struck.
If this aspect makes difficult connections with your birth chart, be cautious in business, keep your security up to date. Update or make a will as far in advance as possible. See your astrologer for a good date and time. Stay clean in your personal relationships, wait to marry. There may be lack of funding for school, the school, curriculum or instructor you wanted may not be available. Though a challenging time for education, it may need to be done anyway. Make the best of what you can.
Librans, mind your kidneys/sugar. Capricorns, take it easy on your bones, teeth and skin.
The third Jupiter square Pluto will be Aug 4, 2017, preceding the Aug 7 Lunar Eclipse. If these squares aspect your personal chart, pay attention now so you can do your part in how it plays out. Challenges can be sorted out. Set your goals for then about these specific matters.
Good news, bad news, complaints and lots needs fixing! Let’s roll up our shirt sleeves and together do what it takes! The work continues. Never give up.
Please, always remember these planetary combinations, transits, are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go well with you….
