After 4 months of seeming dormancy, Big Daddy Jupiter has officially shifted back into forward motion from reverse (retrograde) gear! As a result the Jupiter vibe is super potent at the moment; it’s almost as if this planet has been distilled into a concentrated Essence of Jove and our optimism & appetites return with a vengeance.
Maybe this translates to an appetite for destructionor debt, or perhaps instead we’re hungering for intimacy/sex – whatever the case, know our vice-du-jour may be the adage that “more is more”. So before going overboard with decadent excess, some insightful and perhaps psychological understanding about what all of this might be rooted in may keep things from getting too out-of-hand.
One thing to be grateful for about Jupiter Direct: When this planet is retrograde, we’re often not as cognizant of our blessings because they tend to be less overt and more spiritualized in nature. But now that Jove has resumed his “regularly scheduled programming”, abundance tends to flow in more outward ways. In honor of its present connection to Neptune, dream big and say a prayer for your greatest wish; then be on the lookout for signs that Divinity is indeed listening with a spirit of infinite generosity. Keep the faith and give it about a month.
There’s an ongoing super Watery alignment happening between Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces during 2018. We took our first dip into this aquatic energy back in early December 2017, but it will return to make a big splash twice more this year. The GIF above (courtesy of The Life of Pi) is a pretty accurate visual metaphor for how this energy *feels*; enormous, unfathomable, and at times even overwhelming. Massive Truth Waves come bobbing up from the depths of our psyche and wash over us like some kind of giant leviathan breaching the surface. Because Jupiter is tenanting Scorpio, some of these Truths will be ugly. But they need to be allowed to rise up to the top; particularly if and when we’ve suffered in silence – how else can we release and transcend? By dealing with them honestly we can start to replace resentment with forgiveness, dissolve bitterness with (self?)compassion. This isn’t a get-out-of-jail free “love all, forgive all” pass necessarily, but it does favor taking a spiritual view of the fucked up things that happen to us all in order to reach a place of serenity and acceptance of the Truths we cannot change so we’re empowered by – rather than hiding from – them.
The trine between Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces perfects again on May 25 & August 19 of 2018, but for all intents and purposes we should expect to feel the effects of this vibe bubbling up for weeks on either side of these dates. For those who missed the in-depth newsletter article I wrote about this trine in my December 2017 issue, you can contact me to request a copy if you would like more info on this cosmic configuration. There’s plenty of good stuff this alignment has to offer us; moreso the deeper we dive into it, so don’t be put off by what you see topside.
