With Jupiter now retrograde, these aspects are happening in reverse order, the inconjunct first on Valentine’s Day, the opposition March 2. This pair is important because 2015, 16, 17 are uniquely linked by reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. When Jupiter was in Virgo, it was opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus! See more!
Jupiter opposite Uranus started within 5 degrees Nov 26, 2016. It started within 3 degrees of Chiron Dec 5. The first exact pairing, Dec 26, day after Christmas and Dec 31, New Year night! They were the last 2016 outer planets aspects, part of what I’m dubbing the Holiday Four! Since Jupiter is moving slowly, retrogrades Jan 7, the aspects hold within less than 3 degrees continuously until the pair is exact the second times, Chiron Feb 14 and Uranus Mar 2, three months! This is important because as 2016 ended, 2017 begins with 2016’s unfinished business, this time retrograde! Sep 27. 2017 the three year set is completed.
Oppositions and inconjuncts are from here to there! Oppositions are straight across the table. You know your enemy, or potential friend, face to face. There’s no doubt who you each are. Inconjuncts are from one sign to the sign across but to the left or right. They are usually harder to read, easy to ignore and pass by, but their presence can also be nagging or irritating, make you twitch or catch your attention and be inviting!! Like an interesting detour or side trip, you might be glad you took the time to introduce yourself and see why they are there! You might even continue on this new Path, never going back!
Valentine’s Day, Feb 14, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron
Chiron in Pisces is possibly a quieter combination than either Jupiter or Uranus in their air and fire signs. Chiron in water sign Pisces is artistic, a sensitive sign of Spirit and compassion. While the other two are back and forth, Chiron is the observer, both finding flaws and seeing the finer good points. It can bring a deep meaning to the venture, making the difference between mere glory and the Magic of Divine Purpose. It can applaud Jupiter’s good will for all; it can support Uranus’s intent for world community, Unity through new beginnings.
On a daily basis, it can keep the team moving. It sees when people are dispirited, tired, afraid, and brings the remedies. Maybe it’s time for a good swim – cooling down, cleaning up, a rest. So many don’t think of Pisceans as good business people, but Chiron is considered a great business planet, and ocean (Pisces) industries are huge! Shipping, ocean cruises, ocean sports, harbor industries, fishing, on and on, additionally including concerts and all the associated facets. Time out to play and relax – seaside retreats, spas, resorts. Chiron dreams make it whole.
Pisces may have its troubles. We know about addictions. But the new ideas of this threesome may bring new healing and teaching. Pisces can be the Saviour, and Chiron, though never fully recovered, did share his wisdom that still lives in the world today. As we bridge gaps, extend the hand of friendship, sharing opens new doors.
March 2 Jupiter opposite Uranus!
Jupiter is relatively a regular fellow, and more so in polite Libra! See more Sporty and debonair! Uranus in Aries would never be ordinary! Thunder and Fire, follow no ascribed authority or ordinary rules, rather makes their own then changes them because they can! Freedom reigns. Yet each is interested. Jupiter in Libra has exceptional intelligence, dances quickly, intervenes ingenuously! Even Uranus can’t help but be intrigued. Sharing ideas across the table is inspiring, playful, and Jupiter in Libra has connections to put wild Uranian concepts right on the drawing board, with backers, strategies and planning making it all possible!
Jupiter, though somewhat by the book, gets easily bored and is ready to travel, try out new relationships one after the other! This Uranian fellow keeps his interest more than a minute, flashing no creds, but delightfully fast and intelligent with amazing inventions and insights to keep one thinking. It’s a glorious challenge to see how to bring it into current use before the inventor moves on to the next project. Jupiter is ever optimistic, and Uranus finally meets someone who gives hope for the project!
Yes, they may clash. Jupiter gets opinionated, on his high horse, and Libra simply won’t make a decision, give the go ahead. Uranus gets disappointed, impatient, heard all that before, the put off, maybe this, maybe that. They can leave the table or address the issues. It might work, might not, but they tried. And each will be changed. Perhaps the next time….
Wishing you freedom and very sweet & spicey new beginnings!
Please, always remember these planetary combinations 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….
