Good Morning dear Readers and Friends, If you want the overview and the dates, then read Part 1.

If you have SCORPIO rising, then Jupiter in Aquarius will transit through your 4th house of home and family. Usually Jupiter in the 4th will bring good news and expansion to you and your family. Some examples would be remodeling your home or adding something to it, a family reunion or celebration of some kind, and more people in your home. The family could expand through a marriage or a new baby. Often, graduations or the younger members buying their first home will coincide with Jupiter in the 4th. Since Jupiter is a planet that rules travel, relatives may travel long distance to come and visit you. I have seen it work the other way, too, that you travel to see them. Let’s get that virus tamed ASAP so we can enjoy visits safely again.

Since Aquarius rules friends and groups, setting up outdoor space for visits would be a good idea. There will be more people in and out of your home. This may be casual, but there could also be meetings or classes at your home. One time when Jupiter was in my 4th, a number of friends moved in with me. One family had a work contract in my town and needed a place to stay. Another just wanted to rent a room for short term. And there were a number of spontaneous gatherings, potlucks, etc. It was a very social year. Remember, with Saturn also in Aquarius, you don’t want to buy a home unless you plan to stay there for a very long time. Since Aquarius is in an air sign, keep an eye on ducts and HVAC systems, all the wiring and electricity, and remove or prune trees that could hurt your house if there’s a big windstorm.

The 4th house is unconditional love, the family history and genealogy, nurturing the young, and the next couple years in particular there may be additional responsibilities for seniors (Saturn). I have seen people set up daycare businesses when Jupiter was in their 4th, as well as tutoring school-age students. Tutoring could also be done online (Aquarius). If you are isolated or living alone, connecting online with friends and groups would be even more important. The 4th house is also one of the food houses. What you eat will be more important this year to help you stay strong and healthy.

If you have LIBRA rising then Jupiter in Aquarius will be transiting through your 5th house. The 5th is kids, letting the child in yourself come out to play, creativity, entertainment, and spontaneous socializing. Romance and casual dating would be the 5th, a more formal partnership would be the 7th. So, let’s go through the possibilities in more detail…

If you have kids, expect positive growth in the sense that they discover what they love — new hobbies, a particular subject at school, new friends, etc. There’s a passion for learning. Support that. For adults, they often have to re-define what fun means. Maybe the old activities seem stale and you’re ready for something new. This could be learning to play an instrument, watching different kinds of movies, being more creative with hair (the 5th is the Leo house). There’s the most amazing styles with braids now. Using the Aquarius electronics for making music, singing, etc., even at a distance with others, could be very satisfying. A lot of entertainers have prominent 5th houses.

Writing and publishing are ruled by Jupiter. Maybe this is the year you write your memoirs, or a romance novel, an adventure story, or childrens’ books. All of these categories are appropriate to the 5th house. The point is to have FUN !! If your life is dark and you are stressed, Jupiter can bring you long distance friends and groups that offer comfort and support. There are so many groups out there — about every breed of dog or cat in America, every state has an unemployment group where the members help each other navigate through all the red tape, Art America — an online forum for artists of all kinds, grief counseling, OA/AA/NA, etc. etc. Even church is virtual these days.

Romance with both Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius is a little tricky. You could find yourself suddenly madly in love with a friend, but then suddenly it switches back from romance to platonic friendship. Or you could meet someone who is more of a catalyst in your life — they introduce something important into your life, but they either move away or leave. There are nice trines to your Libra rising that should make relationships and romance easier, but the nature of Aquarius is a little quirky. There has to be a mental and intuitive rapport. So…matters of the heart would also depend a lot on the rest of your chart. I would say, though, that you might want to watch the budget on how much you spend for entertainment and/or romance. Uranus in Taurus in your 8th squaring the 5th can be disruptive with finances. More on that when I write about Saturn…

OK, I must close for now…more coming soon, enjoy your Sunday :)) Jenae

Hello Dear Friends and Readers, Months ago I said I thought people might be able to gather and celebrate the holidays as a community. Unfortunately, this is not the case. I think I was wrong because I didn’t examine the potential negative possibility of the coming Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 0 degrees Aquarius on 12-21-2020.

While it’s true that there is a glimmer of hope because scientists are working very hard to produce vaccines,  I think the discordant nature of Saturn and Jupiter is preventing the kind of cooperation and teamwork that is necessary for communities to stop the spread of the virus. Jupiter expands. Saturn contracts. So we have 2 very different energies in conjunction. I’m Aquarius and I believe in teamwork. The US chart has Moon in Aquarius. Think about it… we are an inventive people, but also freedom loving and also rebellious.  Jupiter is suggesting that cooperation for the good of the whole is important to overcome this invisible enemy, the virus. Saturn is suggesting that people are rebelling about some of the restrictions. Mask rage? Underground parties? One group in rural Virginia declared themselves an autonomous zone, meaning the restaurants, bars, and churches would stay open and no one needed to wear a mask. The virus is a lie, a conspiracy, blah blah blah, etc.  Rebelling against both science and the current governor. Some groups of people don’t want to cooperate at all. 

I have been thinking about this for 3 weeks. I now think that the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction is just another symbol of the divisiveness that has plagued our country for the last few years. Yes, it needs to change. Yes, this conjunction is a sign of the beginning of the needed changes, but NO, we are not there yet… Since Saturn is the old ruler of Aquarius (before Uranus was discovered) it could mean that the negative side of Aquarius is more dominant at this time. We’ll just have to watch and see what happens… meanwhile Saturn enters Aquarius on the 16th and Jupiter on the 19th of December. I will be writing about these upcoming transits pretty soon. I think the possibilities are much more positive for individuals. Please remember, though, that all this started on January 12, 2020 with the Saturn-Pluto conjunction. There is still the continuation of corruption and greed coming to the surface, like an infected wound that needs to be cleaned.

We, as individuals, have the ability to choose our responses to events. Positive Aquarian energy, is kind, humble, and works for the good of the group, whether it’s your family, your neighborhood, your community, your country, or the whole planet. Stay alert to your own intuitive flashes. You could meet people that give you information that can change your life for the better. There is a lot of suffering and trauma going on. If you can help, do so. Donate to your local food bank. Etc. Remind yourself daily that there are lots of good people out there, just like you, working for a better world. They don’t make the news, but they are out there. Write down your wish list as we come to the close of this difficult year. This is the first act of manifestation… putting pen to paper is bringing your will onto the physical plane, a positive first step for bringing your goals and dreams into reality .

I wish you the best Holidays you can have, virtual though they may be… Jenae

Good afternoon dear Friends and Readers, back again…

If you have SCORPIO rising then Mars is making a long transit through your 6th house.  I know people with this position and some of them have pulled ligaments and/or torn muscles.  The 6th is health, work, and service.  Most of them have a million small chores every day that is somewhat exhausting.  So we can figure that taking good care of your health is going to be important for the next roughly 4 months.  Work will probably be extra busy.  I would caution you that if you are looking for a new job, avoid one that is too physical for your capabilities.

Actually the Capricorn transits are making a nice sextile to Scorpio, so this could be a pretty good time for your career — either changing careers or finding new ways to do your work remotely, or even starting some kind of side gig.  Since the Cap planets are in your 3rd house, this is a good year for technical training, short classes, workshops, etc.  If you use your car for work, keep a mileage log and accurate records.

So, the Mars transit is forming an inconjunct aspect to Scorpio, which can be difficult as far as co-workers.  Maybe they don’t have the same work ethic as you do, or maybe it’s just chaotic because of communication or schedule glitches.  Just don’t get mad about it, or that will make the situation worse.  Try to find workable compromises that don’t hurt morale.  I love that old cliché — don’t win the battle but lose the war.  Very appropriate with this transit.  One more thing about health… Mars rules Aries and is strong here — it rules the head. Get your eyes checked if you need glasses or are having headaches.

If you have SAGITTARIUS rising, then Mars is making a nice trine to your Ascendant, especially if your rising is in the later degrees of Sag.  Phew!!  You don’t have near as much pressure on you as some other people. Even the Cap planets are making a mild but subtle 30 degree semi-sextile aspect to Sag.  True, you still have to deal with the Mars squaring the Capricorn planets.  That would be your 2nd house of money and values, possessions and resources and hobbies — and Mars would be in your 5th house of kids, creativity, having fun, being spontaneous.  (Gee, who gets to do that these days?)  Hopefully, the kids do, but I don’t know many adults who are lighthearted at the moment.  Pretty hard to be happy when the world is falling apart.

Anyway, my impression of these houses is that maybe you have kids and they want toys or they need things for online school that add extra costs to your budget.  Most school districts are providing tablets or laptops and hot spots to help with wifi.  If your district isn’t, start by writing on social media to the schools’ Superintendent, then your local representatives in State Legislature, then the Governor.  If that doesn’t get you what you need for your kids, then start a Go Fund Me page for your kids’ school.  Don’t believe me?  Check out the little girls on the sidewalk in front of Taco Bell in Salinas.  The employees filmed them and it went viral and everyone got involved to help kids across that District.  Big time. One of the few pieces of good news out there.

OK back to you…maybe you don’t have kids… then my impression is you have a big goal or a dream at this point — something you want to do that is creative, something you have a passion for and you don’t know how to get there.  Anything you do to develop your talents and hobbies this year will pay off in time, especially if you have natal planets in your 2nd — a strong sign of turning hobbies into careers.  Right now there is no community theater or singing groups, but you can still train at home or online with others.  If you are an artist, keep producing beautiful things.  Utube artists can be very inspiring.  My granddaughter used to watch something called 5 minute Crafts — amazing what people can do with very simple materials.

Mars is good with sharp tools and fire — maybe you want to carve wood, or learn the Marquetry technique (mosaics out of very thin sheets of wood). Maybe you are into welding and ornamental iron, or glass blowing, or pottery.  If you are serious, start small and buy one tool at a time.  It is often possible to share workspace or kilns.  Most towns have communities of artists.  Maybe just pay for one lesson?  Or barter could work.  The  point is to be patient with yourself because these times aren’t easy.  Keep your eye on the long-term goal and don’t give up.  If you keep practicing and trying your best, a break-through will happen in response to YOUR efforts, sincerity, and dedication.  Good luck :))

If you have CAPRICORN rising, you’ve already been slogging through ordeals for awhile now.  Before 2020 and before Mars even entered Aries.  I could tell you about a dozen people with Cap rising, but I will keep it brief…just a couple.  Mostly,  something tumultuous happened to force a change in career — not something they  wanted or were seeking.  They  have managed to build a new success from what was forced on them.

First they had to accept what happened.  Then they had to get very determined to make something work, even if it wasn’t their first choice.  Then a new opportunity presented itself and they realized it was a much better situation after all…phew!!!  Not easy!!  Now you know why Caps are young when they are old and old when they are young.  They bloom because age doesn’t stop them.  All these Cap transits in your 1st house — people are watching and you are making a big impression on other people.  Conduct yourself appropriately, professionally.

Mars in Aries is in your 4th house of home and family.  Maybe just getting enough breathing room to work at home is a problem. Or maybe you are trying to remodel or improve your home.  Mars retrograde, starting tomorrow 9/9/20, is a terrible time to begin a ground-breaking or any major construction project.  Please do yourself a favor and wait until the new Moon in November.  Maybe there is an ongoing emergency with an older relative and/or there is anger in your home. Then the retrograde gives you a chance to deal with it in a new way, or to understand your role in the family better.  Another possibility is a change in diet. This could be for medical reasons, or just because you want to improve your health.  Food safety is more important than usual.  Don’t leave foods sitting around that are supposed to be kept either hot or cold.

A few of the people I know with Cap rising have moved long-distance to follow the new career opportunity.  Then the Mars was all the cleaning and packing to move.  And of course there were a few glitches with the whole process but it worked out well in the end.

The main point to work on is if there is bullying or anger coming at you at home, to find a way to confront it without getting mad.  Maybe it’s a teenager acting out.  It’s hard not to take it personally but really it’s just hormones.  If someone in the home is being disrespectful to another family member, then you may have to step in and assert yourself on their behalf.  There are hotlines and there are family counselors working online.  Spiritual practices at home can help, too.  Simply beginning a conversation about what you feel grateful for can open up communication and improve morale at home.  Right now, with the Sun in Virgo, and next spring when the Sun is in Taurus — these are more positive times for you…and December will be a big month.

This is not your easiest year, but there are benefits coming.   Be productive and precise with a good work ethic and you will end up much happier and satisfied with life and with yourself.  Of all the Cardinal signs, Cap is more suited to weathering the storm than the other signs…

Well, that it for now.  Two more signs to go :))  Stay tuned and stay safe…Jenae
