THE FIRST JUPITER-PLUTO SQUARE!!!!! (of 3 from now till August 2017)

We are already in the first of 3 squares (90º) between Jupiter in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn, the second will be March 30, 2017 and the third August 4, 2017, period which coincides with the 8 months that Neptune is in direct motion, from now until June 2017.

This aspect between Jupiter and Pluto in these signs does not occur since 1934, it coincides historically with the rise of Nazism in Europe, with Hitler in Germany, Mussolini in Italy and Franco in Spain. Just like after the Great Depression in 1929 y la crisis del 2008, we area under similar astrological aspects such as the waning Uranus-Pluto square, at 5º orb at the moment, but also, a similar political situation. In 1929, Uranus in Aries (like now) Pluto in Cancer (now in its opposite sign of Capricorn) were forming the same square, with Saturn, now in Sagittarius like then,  moving into Capricorn, opposing Pluto in Cancer. These two will form a conjunction in the last degrees of Cap as from 2020. At that point we saw the rise of the right, all over Europe, almost with the same nationalistic loud voice as those of Donald Trump and Nigel Farage (who defended and promoted Brexit).

Now, after the economic crisis that began in 2008, we are experiencing similar situation, except that we are not at the same evolutionary or social stages, as then.

Today we have a much more informed youth, who handle the media as we didn’t do before, we all understand we have a voice over public matters and we can use it, as it has happened in the Arab spring, or as is happening now in the streets of South Korea, with young people demanding that Par Gun-hye, their president, resigns. Something unseen or unheard of in that country in early 20th Century.

Donald Trump, the president elect of the USA, has most of the media against him, yet, i wonder for how long. Pluto in Capricorn has been responsible for bringing down and out into the light the corruption of governments and the big fortunes. The more money you have, the less you pay taxes, it seems. Power and money give you that privilege.

Therefore, the working class and not only whites, miners and builders, but all the working class that is most of us, get a clear picture of what has been going on in the upper spheres.

Governments and big institutions and companies, like Movistar or Endesa in Spain, have our bank accounts and they charge us what they want. Everyone suffers this, not just those who voted for Trump, Brexit, Macri or Rajoy, etc.

Jupiter in Libra will make sure that we sit and speak cordially, as we saw Trump and Obama do, to try and solve our present predicaments, but the reality boiling underneath (Pluto) is something completely different.

This tension we are all under, politically, is also happening at an individual level. The Pluto influence is psychological, it turns us inside and makes us uncomfortable. It pushes buttons in our psyche that we would much rather left untouched. It present us with what needs to be changed and how we resist the imminent change. If confronts us with the least desirable aspects of our nature and we must find a way to admit to it and work on it.

Jupiter, on the contrary is something much more social, he suggests we have to accept the facts or the rules of the game, because we do not live alone on this planet and there is something called “compromise”, which includes, listening to each other.

This square is also affected by the fact that Jupiter will oppose Uranus on the 26th of December, so the need for “freedom” seems to be eloquent.

On November 23-24 when the Jupiter-Pluto square was exact for the first time, Venus, still in Capricorn, aligned with Pluto, and we take conscience of the fact that we must let go of certain things and/or people, that make us unhappy, to rescue our emotional independence. Consider these small everyday power struggles that corrode our relationships with partners, children, co-workers. The feeling, the temptation of growing towards separation can be powerful, perhaps in assumption that when a relationship fulfils its function, tends to come to an end. If what we really wanted were children, after we have them, then there is danger of looking at the partner and feel: “so, now, what?, if what we really want is a partner for life, then we must work on it and stop dreaming of a better posible option sometime in the future, and get real and deal with our humanity and that of our partner. Therefore, on a personal level, many relationships especially those of the cardinal signs are being subjected to scrutiny, which forces us to look at our partner in a more honest way and from a less neurotic point, typically full of unrealistic expectations and negative criticism. From December 7, Venus enters the sign of Aquarius, what will offer us the opportunity to rescue the friendship, not only with our friends but with our partner too. Cross-cultural relationships could be difficult to handle. The greatest danger lies in our cultural and family conditioning that makes us forget we are the only human race on this planet and that we must learn to get on, honouring our differences which only enrich us all.

Finding solutions to our problems taking into consideration other people’s point of view, our obligation with Jupiter in Libra, the positive aspect as always is the awareness of the circumstances from a more detached perspective and the acceptance of change.

If you feel like sharing how this square is affecting your life, you can do that here.

Thank you

JUPITER IN LIBRA – For every sign – September 9 till October 10, 2017

un-delegates-large-2The last time that Jupiter was in Libra was from the end of the 2004 until October 2005. Do you remember what was happening in your life then? This transit of the largest planet in our Solar system through this sign ruled by Venus, or rather, one of the signs ruled by the Goddess of Beauty, also means the Return of Júpiter, for all those born with Jupiter in Libra. Meaning, everyone who turns 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, or 72, etc. in 2017 or at the end of this year.

Jupiter is known as the Great Benefactor, since it help us expand our horizons, in search of other neighborhoods, other cultures, it propels us to search, search, search. It rules the sign of Sagittarius and Pisces, two signs that speak of our philosophical and spiritual longings: Some of the least answered questions are: “What are we doing here?” “Why or what are we here for?”,”What is the meaning of life?”, “Is there a meaning to Life?” The two fields where we may find some answers, although never a definitive one, are Philosophy (Sagittarius) and/or Religion (PISCES), precisely where the Chiron (in PISCES) and Pholus (in Sagittarius) square is occurring now and during all of 2017. If you want to read about it go to: http://www.astrologiaarquetipica.com/blog/

Jupiter is Zeus for the Greeks, his Roman name is Jupiter. He is the King of the Gods and his story is full of adventure and extra-marital love-affairs. He is never known for his faithfulness. The many different disguises he assumes in order to conquer the nymph he desires, are of a exquisite creativity , he turned into a cloud, into a golden rain, into a beautiful seductive bull, etc, etc. But Hera (Juno), his sister and wife, always discovers him, and professes terrible punishments to the poor innocent conquests of her husband. They resonate in the life of many mortal marriages.

Jupiter is departing from an Earth sign and related to the 6th house, of health and work (among other things). Therefore if in this year, (2016) you’ve changed your diet, you’ve improved your lifestyle and you’ve found a healthier way of living, you can thank Jupiter in Virgo. Many people have become vegans, or almost, there’s been much more consciousness on the high price we pay for the beef, dairy farms and bird abusing industries. We have also seen many documentaries about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, with a less carnivorous diet, and the importance of consuming organic products. Most young people already know someone that has returned vegan, or at least vegetarian, and even if they don’t share their philosophy, they recognize that those who prefer to eat plants instead of animals, are growing in number.

But now Jupiter is going to spend a year in the Air sign of Libra. This sign ruled by Venus, in its more intellectual and less sensual aspect than in the sign of Taurus, more interested in the ‘other’ than in Taurus. Libra is a sign where justice in life is essential, a commitment, a journey. Libra pushes us to listen, instead of only talk, to “really” connect with the other, to find a way to get along with others. Jupiter this sign will therefore make us much more aware of the need to find compromise with others, even when we don’t agree with them. Where should we be more even-handed, more fair, taking into account the needs of others and our own. This will be felt personally and collectively.

Politicians will meet more than ever to find diplomatic solutions to the most urgent problems. We are starting with the the G20 meeting, planned to be held on 4–5 September 2016 in the city of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Perhaps the war in Syria, will be on the agenda, if the parties finally agree to sit down and talk. This is a great opportunity to find more balance in our relationships. It is an exceptional good year for the Arts, for Beauty, therefore all systems and businesses that have to do with keeping us looking younger and more beautiful, like plastic surgery, fashion, cosmetics, etc, will see the benefit.

But the dark side of Jupiter, will also be in action, and one of its major flaws is EXCESS. Zeus overthrew his father and all the Titans, hence becoming the King of the Gods. He is known for his abundant self-esteem, that often knows no bounds. But even so, his ethics always win, and justice prevails with him. For all those who have Jupiter in Libra, no matter the age, this is an interesting moment of growth that includes expansion of one’s horizons and change. Touring, moving, traveling, changes at home, improving it, are all possible under this transit. It is common to travel to distant cultures which will change our vision of life in a very important and meaningful way. Also, it is possible to work with foreigners or in travel agencies.
But Jupiter will connect with other planets in its path through Libra. In November, on the 21-22, it will make its first square to Pluto, at the end of March 2017, will make the second and August 5, 2017 the last one, all at the same time that it will be opposing Uranus: these oppositions will take place in Christmas 2016, then it will be on March 3 and the last time will be 28 September 2017. These are bombastic combinations like everything that involves the energy of Uranus, unpredictable and explosive. Taking into account that it takes place in Aries-Libra (Uranus and Jupiter respectively) and Capricorn (Pluto) we will continue to see the changes of Governments and Heads of State, with great challenges to the Established Institutions. More than one nation and especially those most repressed and less benefited by decisions made by politicians will feel the strong need for independence.The fact that is traveling through Libra which propels us to diplomacy and compromise, this will be a balancing factor since oppositions force the planets involved to find a more even ground where to express themselves. Fortunately, already in December, when Jupiter opposed to Uranus, the latter will form a trine to Saturn at the same time, therefore a sextile to Jupiter. So our Christmas can be agitated and full of surprises and it is possible that we will feel the need to bring about change, or be overwhelmed by it. These are positive aspects though, and will fill us with optimism and the necessary energy to step forward. The Sextile (60 °) between Jupiter and Saturn, continues during the first week of January 2017 and the on 5 of February, when Jupiter is located to 23 ° of Libra, it will station retrograde until the 10th of June, when at 13 °, stations direct to begin its forward movement once again. It will be transiting Libra until October 11, 2017 when it will finally enter Scorpio, for the first time in 12 years.

OK. Here is a small review sign by sign. Very small. ;-D

The Cardinal signs: Aries-Cancer-Libra(especially) and Capricorn must already be feeling that itch for change, for improving their style of life. Something inside is fed up with the present situation.

Them others Air signs: Gemini and Aquarius, will feel that the luck is finally on theirs side , after a challenging period, so opportunities will be there to be grasped, therefore be attentive and willing to change.

Aries: is one of the most affected by this transit of Jupiter through Libra, in the sense that the need for commitment and restructuring of their relationships will be a great, it will be vital to give each other space within the relationship.

Taurus: will benefit this sign at work level, and above all in health. Is a good time to start new ways of nutrition and exercise. Perhaps is the time for finding a pet, if you don’t have one. Working abroad is also possible.

Gemini: the relationship with one’s own children is improving and love may call at the door. Responsibilities may feel overwhelming at times, but these are great opportunities to find your own creativity.

Cancer: you have the opportunity to improve your home or move to a more spacious house, perhaps more in touch with Nature. Relationships with family members get a boost.

Leo: will be more inclined to write and communicate in a more coherent and less demanding way. The relationship with brothers and sisters and also with neighbours have a chance of improvement.

Libra: You have one year to undertake you boldest projects and turn your life around. A very positive and expansive year.

Scorpio: Family constellations may give this sign an ancestral knowledge necessary for understanding. Relationships with family members may reveal secrets that explain many things.

Sagittarius: Even with Saturn in this sign for the rest of the 2017, Jupiter in Libra will feel like a breath of fresh air, which will balance the demands of responsibility with very progressive periods.

Capricorn: A powerful call to commitment and dialogue, can give the profession a new impetus and a new way of seeing things. There will be moments when the need to get rid of habits that make life boring and heavy, will be unbearable, but perhaps that is needed, to finally bring change about.

Aquarius: A breath of fresh air enters your life, with a sense of lightness and ease that you haven’t felt for years. Travels and new people can cause this necessary change you need.
