With Jupiter retrograde and passing over Fixed Star Unukalhai (AKA Alpha Serpentis; the primary star in the constellation of The Serpent), we definitely have some Big Snake Medicine in the air at the moment. Jupiter magnifies things, and in this particular case it’s the Serpent’s Heart being blown up for our view. We’ve already seen big headlines hitting recently re: Donald Trump’s Alpha Serpent fixer lawyer, Michael Cohen, getting raided by the FBI – Jupiter has long had an association with lawyers and when near this Fixed Star it brings the crawling King Snake variety of attorney into view in a way that simply cannot be ignored. Per Fixed Star authority Vivian Robson, Jupiter conjunct Unukalhai presages “…deceit, banishment, imprisonment, or exile” – looks like somebody’s going to jail. We’ll have to see what further developments arise when Jupiter makes a third and final pass over this star in late September/early October.
But nefarious political implications aside, Jupiter near Unukalhai can be looked at in a much more neutral context via animism. Snakes have long been symbols of knowledge, occult wisdom, sex, kundalini energy, death & rebirth, “shedding” things in order to grow, and metaphorically keeping low in order to avoid detection – perhaps some or all of these themes benefit us now with benefic Jupiter within range of this star.
Interestingly enough, in Traditional astrology Jupiter is associated with dreams and several nights ago I was paid a visit by both a King Cobra and an Anaconda in the same dream – Alpha Serpent Medicine indeed!
