Good Evening dear Friends and Readers, let’s continue with the Jupiter transits through the houses. If you have Gemini rising, then Jupiter transiting Sagittarius would be most likely in your 7th house of partnerships. Now this house is really ANY important one on one relationship, not just marriage, and not just the piece of paper either. The 7th can symbolize business partnerships, mentor/teacher/student relationships, even open enemies. I have seen people both marry and divorce when either Jupiter OR Saturn transits through their 7th.  Looking at this transit another way, your luck and growth is likely to come to you through your partner. Sure, maybe they get a raise or a promotion, but what about your partner introducing to some kind of new learning and growth? It may be a hobby they have a passion for, but it could also be something new the two of you do together.  Maybe you learn a new language? Whatever it is, it can grow in importance in your life over the next 12 years. Meanwhile, THIS year, watch the time management. Your partner could be over-optimistic about planning their schedule.

If you have Taurus rising, the Jupiter in Sag will transit your 8th house of shared money, love, and power. This is the house that rules other peoples’ money, like mutual funds and group investments. The 8th is taxes, insurance, inheritance, and Jupiter here makes it easier to get a loan. Just don’t go overboard. Since Sag is one of the legal signs (Libra is the other), it would behoove you to file your taxes most carefully. Err on the side of caution.  Pay attention to all tax and insurance matters.  Inheritance is certainly possible, but the whole chart must concur…not just one planet. Besides, people inherit more than money. A dear one in your life may gift you with something they think you will treasure. Books, art, furniture, a music collection — it could be anything.  If you decide to buy into a time share vacation home or  condo, be sure to read all the rules FIRST! And ask questions !! I have heard that it can be very difficult to get out of these investments, should you get older or just change your mind later. Jupiter in the 8th should mean there is enough money to travel and romance can blossom during trips away from home…

Aries rising means Jupiter will transit Sag in your 9th house, its OWN house, so you get a double dose of travel, laughter, new experiences and new physical activities.  Outdoor life calls you.  Sports, too. This is an excellent transit to further your education, whether it’s school or self-study. If you need licensing or certification to pursue your career this is a good year to get it.  The 9th rules metaphysics and philosophy, so maybe you go to classes or a workshop to learn more about how the Universe works.  For the first time in history, all the information is available to us… to deeply understand how things work and how to create the life you want. You may meet people from other countries. Foreign and/or ancient cultures may interest you. The I Ching (China), Runes (Vikings), etc. are ancient methods of divination that you can use without anyone else’s help. Tarot is old but takes a lot of study. I like to recommend the simpler systems to people who are just beginning to learn about metaphysics. There’s another deck of cards that I recommend to my clients. Doreen Virtue has many decks, but this one in particular is called Angels and Saints. It’s very simple to use and most helpful to everyone I know who has tried it, myself included. Don’t be surprised if you meet a teacher this year.

Pisces rising means Jupiter in Sag will be transiting your 10th house of career, reputation, and public life. Usually this transit brings an increase in your stature at work. Guard your reputation and don’t play mind games. Live your life as if it will be tomorrow’s front page news.  People in many businesses may find themselves travelling more to workshops and tradeshows. Or a person could appear from far away to provide your business with training on site.  Jupiter in Sag could mean the government has new rules that apply to your career, or there could be legal issues that change the big picture. Not necessarily negative, just changes. If you need to get more advanced licensing or credentials to continue in your chosen career, then this is a very good year to fulfill those requirements. Some people with Jupiter in Sag in their 10th will relocate overseas for a new job. Others may seek new jobs with better pay and opportunities. This is a year for you to stretch and grow in your public or professional life. The Sag colors are royal blue and turquoise. Find ways to incorporate those colors at work :))

Aquarius rising means Jupiter is in your 11th house of friends, groups, and hopes and wishes for the future. No better transit to either take a class or teach a class. Teamwork and cooperation should prevail and you can make new friends who will last a lifetime. Follow your heart, your passion, and your aspiration when choosing what kind of class to take or teach. It doesn’t matter what it is, as long as it has a positive effect on the participants and everyone is 100% committed.  The 11th house also symbolizes all humanitarian groups and clubs, where people come together to make a better world. If this appeals to you, you could find some kind of large project is planned for your community, or even larger. The same things applies — you can meet great people and develop skills you didn’t even know you had :)) The 11th house also rules astrology, so studying your chart and the art itself can bring you unexpected benefits. I began my studies 50 years ago, hard to believe, but I started young and I have never lost my enthusiasm and passion.  Aquarius rising means you have a gift for understanding astrology and it will make your life both easier and more fun :))

If you have Capricorn rising, Jupiter in Sag in your 12th is a more subtle transit since this is a hidden and behind the scenes house. Jupiter here offers you help on a spiritual level. Cap rising has a lot going on that could be challenging — Saturn in your 1st, Pluto in your 1st, and depending on the rest of the chart you could even be facing quite the crisis. It may have to do with work but it also could be health changes. Jupiter in the 12th, which also rules hospitals, means you would receive very good care. That doesn’t absolve you of responsibility, though. The first rule of Saturn in your 1st is to take responsibility to ensure your good health — whether that means improved nutrition, more exercise, more naps, researching any medicines that are prescribed, etc.  The blessing of Jupiter in your 12th is no matter what’s going on, you have a lot of help from your guides and angels and from loved ones on the other side. This loving support can help you weather the crisis and emerge stronger spiritually. A lot of people with Cap rising ARE facing career changes. Saturn and Pluto may put enough pressure on you that you decide to go for a new job with more responsibility, and the courage to try something new ends up totally transforming your life in a positive way. I have seen this happen over and over again since Pluto entered Capricorn years ago and now with Saturn also in Cap, it’s a now or never kind of transit. It’s a great time to focus on yourself and strengthen any weaknesses. Have an honest conversation with yourself about just what those weaknesses are. Jupiter in the 12th will help you.

Hope this blog helped all of you :)) Happy Holidays…Jenae

Hello dear Friends and Readers, Uranus takes approximately 7 years to transit through a sign or a house. Or 84 years to go around the wheel. This year, Uranus entered Taurus on 5-15-2018, but it retrogrades back into the last few degrees of Aries from November 6 to March 7, 2019 when it re-enters Taurus and stays in Taurus for the next 6-7 years.

Uranus is a disruptive planet; it’s the lightning bolt of invention, intuition, and inspiration.  It’s action is quick. In individuals’ charts, this planet often act suddenly. If something is removed or taken away from you, it’s to make room for growth, like pruning a fruit tree. It can work in the opposite way, too, bringing in new ideas, hobbies, new people into your life suddenly as a catalyst for growth. We could say that Uranus rules technology, though Mercury plays a role, too. Uranus rules aviation, the space program, the Internet, and all friends and groups that come together for a common purpose.

I hope to write more later about how individuals can be affected by this transit, but for now I’ve just been observing the world and trying to tune into what’s on the horizon. Here’s what I’ve noticed so far…Taurus rules banks and trees…

We’ve all become familiar with the disruptive technology that is changing the world. Banks tend to be stodgy and conservative. Now they are being forced to change. Adapt or die, said Darwin… Enter Crypto currencies, Pay Pal, Venmo, Square, etc. — all new ways of moving money around digitally. Suddenly banks are having to adapt. Now people can deposit checks into their bank account by phone. All kinds of new things are happening with money and banks and this trend will continue…

Back in the early days of our Republic, the Founding Fathers grew hemp. They depended on it for rope and nets and riggings for ships, etc. In modern times hemp has been illegal but now this, too, is changing. I read a few years ago that every day, our earth is losing trees to deforestation the size of Delaware. That’s 48 square miles A DAY, of trees being cut.  If you factor in the devastation of forest fires, the amount may be even larger. Trees use carbon dioxide and emit oxygen. People need oxygen. People need trees. It takes 20 years to grow trees for harvest in warmer climates and up to 40-50 years in cooler ones.  Pulp is used to make paper and cardboard as well as building materials.  Hemp can also be used to make paper,  which would put less pressure on the forests and also provides another crop for farmers. Hemp can also be turned into fabric, and now it has medicinal applications.

There is a company called GW Pharmaceuticals in England that makes a medicine for epilepsy from CBD oil, which is derived from both cannabis and hemp. It has recently received unprecedented approval from the FDA to market its medicine here in the US. Why? BECAUSE IT WORKS! The scientific evidence is there, this can be a medicine that helps children with the worst kind of epilepsy, children that have hundreds of seizures a week.  There are only about 17 anti-seizure medicines available and if they don’t work for a particular patient, then that patient is out of options. Death is possible from seizures.  The CBD medicine is bringing new hope to these very fragile children. Now research is beginning to test CBD on other illnesses and even to come up with a pain medicine that is not addictive and harmful.  I believe that this is another illustration of Uranus at work — that we will see the laws changed in our country and in the world to make these plant medicines available. In the meantime, the farmers are actually making some money growing hemp as a crop in states that have permitted it. Why cut down trees for paper if you can use a quick growing plant instead? Some farmers are growing for the medical market; this part is more strictly regulated and tested. Some plant breeders are creating either cannabis or hemp that yields 17% CDB oil.  New businesses, new opportunities…

Since Taurus rules trees, I see these trends changing the way we use our forests, and inventive people are finding new substitutes for some of the forest products. I think we will always need wood, but the need to protect the trees will also spur new inventions of building materials, too.  This has been going on for awhile, but the changing of the cannabis and hemp laws will speed this up.  Uranus at work.  I was in a health food store a few weeks ago and a beautiful young woman came in looking for CBD products. She said she had just been diagnosed with MS, which is degenerative and incurable at present. She said she had been taking a capsule with CBD oil and felt so much better, that it was better than anything else to relieve her symptoms.  She came in to buy more and settled on a chewable tablet with the same potency.  Is states that allow sales of CBD products the anecdotal evidence is piling up — that CDB can help people with pain, a variety of illnesses, and it can help animals, too.  And the states that don’t allow sales are at least passing laws to allow medical research.  “The times, they are a-changing…”

I will write more on Uranus in Taurus when I see more.  Meanwhile Jupiter will enter Sag on 11-8-18 for a year and I will write for individuals in that post. Stay tuned…Namaste…Jenae

Good Morning Dear Readers and Friends…the thought occurred to me during this Mercury retrograde transit that I should go back over the past a bit, sharing all the things that I have seen happen when a person goes through their first Saturn return…

Saturn takes approximately 29 1/2 years to transit all the way around the wheel of the chart. The first Saturn return takes place at that time — it means that Saturn is transiting conjunct to the place it was when you were born.  Depending on your individual chart and the  various aspects to your Saturn, it can be difficult in the extreme, or  even  relatively mild, but it ALWAYS serious and a time of commitment. Often, an older person will show up in your life at that time to function as a mentor or a guide. The law says you are an adult when you are 18 or 21, but older people start giving you more respect at 30 when you’ve completed the first Saturn return. Depending on your chart, you may just have one conjunction, but since Saturn is a slow and heavy planet you need to allow at least  a few degrees of orb.  Let’s say, for example that you have Saturn at 15 degrees of Libra and TRANSITING Saturn conjoins and then during the retrograde phase it comes back to 18 degrees Libra before going back into direct motion. You’re still going to  feel the heaviness of that conjunction, the after ripples, even though it is 3 degrees from exact. More often, the person will experience 3 exact conjunctions — forward, retrograde, then forward again.

OK, you are thinking, but what does it MEAN?  Saturn symbolizes authority. This transit is deeply a review of all the input that authority figures have had in your life thus far — parents, teachers, church, government, etc. The first Saturn return is a time when YOU choose what to keep and what to let go of, in terms of values and deciding whether all that previous input works for you or not. It takes courage and hard work (internally) to become your own authority, but that is just part of the task. Saturn is  also a symbol for career and how you define success in the outer world. When we are kids, our parents tell us (hopefully) that we can be anything we want to be when we grow up. As we mature, enter college, etc. we begin to realize that we can’t do it all, so we begin to choose that which is most meaningful to us.  Saturn is about bringing  goals into physical manifestation and it works through restriction, concentration, focus, and the ability to delay instant gratification for long-term rewards. So the first Saturn return is very often a commitment to a career, or a change in career.  It’s about choosing which door to walk through, and once we choose, other doors close silently.

I’ve seen people get married, or divorced, when they were going through their Saturn return. I know two  ladies with strong Scorpio themes who were widowed on both their 1st AND 2nd Saturn returns. When a child is born on your Saturn return, there’s a strong tie with that child. A karmic tie. Saturn, Pluto, and Neptune can indicate karmic ties — best to look carefully at both parents’ and the childs’ chart to see clues of how to manage the possibilities for positive results.

Mine was a change in career. When I was 28, I got the best job of my life at that time. I have Saturn in Virgo, so it figures :)) Virgo is health work and service to others. I job-shared with a dear friend and we had a great boss who encouraged our creativity. We worked long hours but it built my confidence in myself. When you are born with Saturn in your 1st house it takes getting older to become confident and believe in yourself. We even beat out 38 other social service contractors vying for a grant from the City of Salem because we were the ONLY preventative program.  We managed several acres of community gardens scattered across a tri-county area of the Willamette Valley.  Bringing better health and a better diet to many people — a good description of Saturn in Virgo :))

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn and symbolizes bones, joints, and teeth. I knew a woman who was a nurse and she was starting her 1st Saturn return and she didn’t like her job. But she wouldn’t do anything about it. Then she broke her leg! So she couldn’t work, and while she was healing she realized that she HAD to make a change in career.  There’s an old saying…”The wheels of the Gods grind slow but exceedingly fine…” Make no mistake — Saturn returns are serious business designed to help us grow and if we refuse the task and the challenges in front of us at that time, there are most assuredly penalties.

SO…now I want to hear from you, if you are  28-30 and experiencing  the pressure of making important long-term decisions. Send me your birth data and whether you are male or female. My goal is to encourage an open discussion of this important time in peoples’ lives. I will post it and write what I see, minus your name, to protect your privacy.

Thanks for reading and watch for my next blog post — Uranus enters Taurus on May 15, 2018… Namaste, Jenae

SATURN IN CAPRICORN — 12-20-2017 to 12-16-2020

TRANSITING SATURN CONJUNCT TRANSITING PLUTO — JANUARY 2020 – EXACT 1-12-2020

Happy Solstice, dear Friends and Readers, and Mercury goes forward this evening (12-22) — finally !! With Saturn at 29 degrees Sag and Mercury retro in Sag, I’m sure you’ve been aware of the number of transportation accidents. Hopefully, this will ease up now that Mercury is direct and just in time for the holidays. Still, please drive carefully…

Saturn rules Capricorn, so this long transit will be especially strong and important. First, let’s go over some of the qualities represented by Saturn. If Jupiter is expansion, then Saturn is contraction and restriction. The secret of success with Saturn is to narrow down your perspective, focus and concentrate on dotting every i and crossing every t.  Long hours, hard work, lots of self-discipline and the ability to delay immediate gratification for long-term rewards will enable most of us to accomplish big goals and bring what was just a dream or a fantasy into physical manifestation. Capricorn is an earth sign.

Here’s some little tidbits about Caps…they’re old when they’re young, and young when they’re old. There is often ill health or some kind of restriction of activities when they are young. They just get better and better as they mature. By about 35, they’re doing quite well and basically age slower than other people so by the time they are 50, they  look younger than others. It’s the sign that rules bones, joints, and teeth — all of us will need  to  pay attention and take care with these parts of the body over the next few years.  I expect big breakthroughs in medical with this — research that has been going on for years finally comes to fruition. Capricorn people often start a very successful career late in life.  Jimmy Buffett would be a good example. They don’t just sit around in a rocking chair — old age seems to energize them and they are out and about, doing, accomplishing, and in general the 2nd half of life is lighter, freer, happier.

There was an interesting article a few months ago about scientists figuring out why the Roman concrete in the Mediterranean harbors was still standing and why the modern concrete doesn’t last as long. Evidently the ancients used the same lime, sand, gravel, and rock, but they added volcanic ash and SEA water. And with good results !!! I think we will see Planning Commissions finally get smart about what building materials are needed and how to build to offset the damage from hurricanes, tornados, floods, etc. Building in harmony with the environment will be an expanding theme over the next few years, with breakthroughs in materials used, too. Capricorn, being an earth sign, suggest rock, wood, clay, brick, cement, concrete, etc.  My impression is that innovative scientists, chemists, builders, architects, etc. will take the traditional materials and add something else, tweak them a bit, or use the latest chemistry to increase longevity/durability, the strength, the energy efficiency, etc. Just like they have regular drywall, but also mold-resistant drywall, too. You may wonder why I don’t mention steel and glass? To me, these are more under the Mars rulership because high heat is required to produce them.

Sometimes I feel like a broken record, reminding people to live their lives as if they will be tomorrow’s front page headlines, and warning younger people to keep it clean on social media since whatever they post is there forever.  Have you not noticed that the skeletons are coming out of peoples’ closets right and left?  Pope Francis said that the more powerful someone is, the more humble they need to be. Capricorn is a symbol for authority figures and the power structures that rules our lives one way or another — government, church, schools, etc.  I suppose we could add Hollywood to the list, since they influence the culture so heavily.  If people in positions of power and authority think they are above the law and they can do whatever they want with no consequences, then those that are drunk on their own power are going to find out that Saturn in Cap means they will pay a heavy price for their actions.  As Saturn transits further into Capricorn and begins to approach transiting Pluto, this will become a main world theme.  I read the USA news but I suspect the same things are happening world wide. You think the headlines are bad now? “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet !!!”  The corruption that has been hidden for years will emerge.  All of us have done things we’re not proud of…and all of us need to be careful about being overly judgmental of those whose mistakes have ruined their lives and others.  The various authority figures that are in such trouble these days are just reaping their karma. Let’s define karma — for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.  The point, people, is to not get on the high horse and look down and those whose corruption has come to light, but let it be a reminder to OURSELVES to act correctly.  All of us are responsible for our own thoughts, words, and deeds. For example, I know bully women and abused men. Yes, this is not the usual pattern, but it does exist. Similarly, there are preachers who live in $20 million dollar mansions while exorting people to give to their church, but there are also preachers who live humbly and witness the Christ daily by living a clean and genuine life.  I personally know many good men who would never, ever, be cruel and abusive to women, children, and animals, etc.  Even with the current corruption in Congress, there are no doubt a few good men and women.

I have a client who has surrounded himself with many diverse therapists who specialize in different modalities. One is a channel medium. Suring a recent session, my client received the information that if we want gentler weather, then humanity must stop being so ferocious to each other. Makes perfect sense to me!  You, dear Readers, have far more power than you think. Use your power for generating positive momentum…the time is now!

In general, the earth signs are  going to have a really productive period in their lives. Uranus enters Taurus in 2018, too, with a retro back into Aries but then forward into Taurus for approximately 7 years.  These trines really help the earth signs accomplish their goals and projects, start new businesses and hobbies, finish their schooling and set up investments that can last a lifetime.  The water signs should do pretty well, too. Sextiles mean opportunities with some elbow grease required to make the best use of the transits’ energy.  You may have to kick yourself into gear, but the rewards for focus and discipline are well worth the effort.

The air and fire signs will have more challenges. Squares and inconjuncts. It will be important to cultivate a flexible viewpoint, to seek a deeper understanding of the situations and emotional dynamics in their lives, and accept that problems are how we learn and grow. For example, sometimes having a bad boss is the quickest way to learn how to be a good boss yourself. It will probably help to understand the laws and rules that govern your profession, your neighborhood, and your finances. For example, a Saturn square is NOT the time to fight with City Hall or your local Planning and Zoning Commission. If you plan to buy a property and Saturn is in your 4th, better check on all those rules BEFORE you buy, and only buy if you plan to be there a LONG time. Saturn symbolizes longevity. If you are dealing with building inspectors, again, follow all the rules — no shortcuts. Since Saturn rules old age, there are some interesting exceptions with property where seniors are concerned. I know someone who had an elderly parent and she got permission to put a 2nd home on her property, though temporary, for the life of her parent. Saturn transiting in the 4th can symbolize responsibility for elders.

Saturn transiting your 7th can mean you will need to take extra responsibility in your marriage or partnership. It’s interesting, though, Saturn in the 7th can often bond people closer together, too. I’ve seen it go either way — a break-up, a separation, a marriage, celebrating a milestone anniversary…

Saturn in the 10th can go either way — a difficult boss or problems on the job and a need to work extra hard, but also can bring the increased responsibilities that come with a promotion.

Saturn in your 1st — take good care of yourself, your health, adequate rest, etc. while you’re out there showing the world how capable and responsible you are. Saturn here can bring recognition and/or awards for your expertise — something you have studied and fine-tuned for years…

The Saturn -Pluto conjunction will be exact on January 12, 2020.  It is in effect the whole month of January, and really, allowing for orb, we could add a month or even two, on either side. Honestly, I don’t know what this transit means…an asteroid or a huge geophysical event? A very big polar vortex?  The voters so mad they kick out all the incumbents?  A war? A credit implosion?  I could see that last one, since the Cap energy in the US chart is in the 8th house of shared resources.  So…hope for the best while you plan for the worst.  For now, I intend to watch things unfold and see if I can get a clearer sense of this conjunction.  So far, it seems like all the power players will either hit rock bottom or slowly begin to transform and regenerate into something better. I do know one thing — no matter how positive an individual’s chart is, we all will be affected by such a powerful conjunction. It could be that a very serious crisis is necessary to overcome the weaknesses and limitations in our current society.  Jupiter will be in the earlier degrees of Capricorn. Maybe we will finally formulate the global agreements that are necessary to save the planet. Like no more plastic in the ocean, for example. Maybe it’s a new way of harnessing energy so there’s enough for everybody and no one has to fight over it….something like that could truly transform everyone’s lives.

I hope you read and study what other astrologers say about the Saturn-Pluto conjunction. I’m sure there will be a LOT written about this and the more points of view you read, the better. Yes, these are considered malefic planets but even this conjunction will have a positive potential expression. The pressure created around this conjunction can actually help bring thinking errors and negative attitudes to the surface so that people can release the beliefs and thought patterns that are holding them back from the fully integrated life that their hearts seek.  Forgiveness empowers the forgiver…Namaste, Jenae

OTTER SPACE ASTROLOGY — JUPITER IN SCORPIO — 10-10-2017  PART TWO

Back again, dear Friends and Readers… Let’s talk about the glorious possibilities of Jupiter’s transit through Scorpio.

As far as the world, further archeological exploration can discover some amazing things about the earth’s greatest mysteries.  These discoveries may be underwater since Scorpio is a water sign, but the use of science and technology and the NASA maps could mean there are great new discoveries buried in the earth, too. I love reading about people in England discovering ancient treasures from the Vikings, and  the beautiful tile work discovered consistently all over the MidEast and around the Mediterranean.  Depending on where you live, you could have great fun with a metal detector, or digging for rocks and gems.  For those who like shopping, you can use Jupiter to find hidden treasure at garage sales, junk stores, and antique stores, too.

Medicine will continue to make great discoveries. Jupiter expands whatever it touches. The medical research will be like a snowball, gaining traction and momentum. We are on the verge of huge breakthroughs to cure diseases and bring better health to people. There are a lot of ethical questions to be decided with the research into the very keys of life. Switch off the Alzheimers gene, or the cancer gene? Sounds pretty good.  Start tinkering with designer babies?  Not so good. I think it was Edgar Cayce who said when we started playing God, look out world! Expect the great debates on this, with people very divided on how far the scientists should be allowed to experiment.  Animal research is one example.  IS it fair to the animals? I see both sides of the argument.  At the very least, all animals in captivity should be treated kindly.

Jupiter in Scorpio will sextile Saturn in Capricorn. This is a great year to invest in your future. This could mean retirement accounts, or education, or simply trying to get some savings together. With finances, Scorpio is anything of yours that someone else has a hand in or an interest in. Scorpio rules inheritance, insurance, taxes and government money, big corporate money, and investments like mutual funds.  I’m not a big fan of mutual funds, especially the ones with a high front-end load. But the closed end funds and ETF’s have their place in a portfolio. Those are the ones you can buy and sell on the exchanges and not have to wait to the end of the day.  If you’re young enough, and have the time to weather the ups and downs, then the Vanguard funds are a good example of the lower fees and decent returns over time. The older you get the less you should have in risky investments, so for you that might mean this is a great year to start studying bonds. For those with young children, this Jupiter transit could mean you begin investing in a 529 plan, which is college money for your children or grandchildren. But investing begins after you have some emergency savings in liquid cash. And the way things are going, achieving that is harder than it used to be! Read Suzie Orman for practical financial advice.

If you have Jupiter transiting your 8th house this year, it will be easier to get credit or a loan. Just don’t go overboard. Loans have to be paid back!  A business partnership would be governed by both the 7th and the 8th houses.  In general, this could be a good year to start a business with a partner, but much would depend on the individual charts.

Looking at the long-term trends, tech, biotech, robotics, and cyber safety are going to be front and center for a while…

Maybe we should look at a few not so glorious possibilities….Jupiter transits in trine to Neptune. While this transit is good for medicine and healing, it’s not so good for taking action regarding the sea. We are killing the ocean as if we had no care for the generations to follow. I say this on a world level, not pointing the finger at any country in particular, though I dearly wish the USA would do more to protect the oceans and the fish and sea creatures. There are inventive young people who have won grants and they are building filters that suck the tiny particles of plastic out of the ocean. There’s already some in Baltimore harbor that collects the larger garbage. It’s a start, but considering how much toxic waste, sewage, garbage, etc. is dumped daily….there are floating islands, miles long, of nothing but garbage.  There’s a big dead zone in the Gulf where nothing lives. Watch the coral, folks, the coral reefs are  the canary in the coal mine of the ocean.  And, sadly, they are dying at an unprecedented rate.

I think what bothers me about this trine is the possibility that people just sit around and daydream and do nothing. Granted, daydreams are valuable, too, but sometimes it takes a square to get anything done.  Squares are challenging, but they can also represent huge accomplishments.  Watch and see what happens next summer and fall when Mars in Aquarius squares Jupiter. We’ll see… I hope enough people work together globally to demand that the clean-up begins. For example, why should ships be allowed to dump their garbage in the ocean?  Why can’t all ships have composting toilets?  There are small islands in the Pacific that are doing more to help the ocean than the bigger countries. They are miles ahead of us. They plant mangroves to protect against erosion. They limit fertilizers in certain places so the run off doesn’t feed the algae,  and algae smothers the coral. They prohibit commercial fishing in some areas but they still make the money with tourists and scuba diving. The reason Cuba’s reefs are in better shape is they don’t use the commercial fertilizers that are causing the nitrogen run-off.  TG!  The most hated company in the world is Monsanto. With good reason.

Social media is both a blessing and a curse. Jupiter in Scorpio could go either way. Bullying could increase and hurt more children, or enough people could stand up and stand together that schools and communities put new rules and laws in place to stop it.  Have you noticed the trend ever since Pluto entered Capricorn? That high profile people with skeletons in their closets are getting exposed?  It’s in the news almost every day — politicians, celebrities, athletes, corporate Ceo’s and Cfo’s.  Expect this to increase even more as Saturn joins Pluto and Jupiter in Scorpio makes research even easier. The truth will come out. IMO, all parents should keep an eye on what their kids are doing on the internet and on social media. I tell my young clients that they might want to be mayor at 40, so they better keep their lives clean now, because if not, it WILL come out.  The young don’t always have perspective; I’m not sure if they believe me.  Watch and see what happens in the next year or two. Meanwhile, we ordinary people should live our lives as if WE will be  tomorrow’s headlines.  I didn’t make that up; my Dad told me that many years ago.  It was good advice…keep it clean, folks, these are tricky times we live in…karma seems to be speeding up.

If you want to write in and tell me where Jupiter in Scorpio is transiting in your chart, post a message, and after you tell me what you think it might mean, then I’ll share my opinion, if you like. Even though I write these posts, I enjoy dialogue more than monologue. Till next time,  best wishes, Jenae…

OTTER SPACE ASTROLOGY — JUPITER IN SCORPIO — 10-10-2017 to 11-8-2018

 

Hello dear Friends and Readers, it’s been quite a while since I posted. I’ve been busy, as I know you have, too. Life seems to be roaring by these days.  I’m a 6th house Sun and I like to be of service to others.  A few people requested that I post again, so here it is…

First, let’s remember one very important principle about Scorpio. This sign symbolizes shared power, shared money, love and intimacy. Everyone has Scorpio somewhere in their chart. Wise use of power and/or wealth requires that we evolve past the win-lose philosophy, the adversarial mind-set so prevalent these days. People who are insecure, who bully, who gnaw on imagined slights and wrongs like a dog with a bone, who want revenge at any cost, even if it takes them years and they end up with colon cancer because they insisted on holding onto old crap — both figuratively and literally — these people are not using their Scorpio energy in a positive way. We get back what we put out.  How can we expect positive results? By aligning our individual will with the Universal Will. By doing our best to ask for Heavenly guidance when making decisions. By truly wanting to make decisions that allow everyone concerned to benefit.  True, this can be very challenging. We live in challenging times. I didn’t make the rules; I just do my best to point out how to make the magic happen. The positive people are seeing miracles every day by using this principle. Better authors than I have written much about how to achieve the life you want.  I think Pope Francis said something like the more power a person has, the more serious responsibility on his shoulders, and the more humble he should be…

SO… the positive use of Scorpio, evolving past the scorpion, is the snake and the white eagle. The snake symbolizes healing and transformation. Check out the medical license plates on cars. There’s a snake entwined on a wand, a caduceus. The symbol of the healing profession since the ancient times in Greece and Rome. The white eagle  symbolizes Scorpio as the defender of the weak and helpless…power used wisely and well.

My experience with Scorpios is they tend to be suspicious at first, testing people to see who they really are. IF a Scorpio decides you are worthy of their trust, there’s no better friend to have in an emergency. They are very protective of those they love.  They also tend to take good care of their possessions, especially their tools. NEVER  casually borrow something that belongs to a Scorpio. Ask first…

You may be asking, Jenae, what do you mean, sharing power with the Universal? Here are some examples.  Martial arts would be one. Even though the Asian cultures are ruled by Libra, I classify martial arts under Scorpio and this has been my experience with the clients’ charts.  At the dojo, the students are taught not to resist, but to use their opponents’ energy in their favor.  Reike would be another example; the practioner surrenders their will and energy to the Universal Energy in order to be a channel  of healing for the client. Prayer and meditation also illustrate that process of being open to the Higher Wisdom in order to receive guidance and inspired solutions.  As soon as I post this, I’ll probably think of other examples, but for now think of the Universal Energy as a flowing river. We don’t need to be a salmon fighting our way upstream. Neither do we need to be a beaver, blocking the river to build our home. The easiest way to be in tune is to imagine ourselves as a little leaf or a feather, floating along and not being too concerned with the destination, but enjoying the journey.

Jupiter magnifies whatever it touches. Jupiter is considered a benevolent planet — luck, growth, expansion, abundance, generosity and tolerance. Jupiter in Scorpio will increase the Scorpio qualities. Going along with our water analogy, I think we will have a wet winter.  Add in Saturn entering Capricorn on 12-20-2017 and that gives us a cold winter, probably a lot of snow in places that usually get it, and maybe some snow even in places that don’t normally freeze. Oh, how I wish it were otherwise !!  We had so much snow AND  ice last winter that we couldn’t even leave the house for a couple weeks at a time.  Mother Nature is reacting to all the imbalances we humans have caused.  If we want less ferocious weather, we must start being less ferocious ourselves.  Jupiter is offering us some fabulous opportunities this year to begin turning things around. There’s only two ways I know to change the world. Change ourselves, and plants seeds of kindness with the children.

Do I think things will get worse before they get better? Yes. Do I have any faith in government or political solutions? No. Personally, I think things are such a mess that I’m not going to feed it or waste my time by commenting about politics. The best and only lasting solutions are spiritual. One human heart at a time…

Tomorrow I will write about the opportunities I see coming with this transit of Jupiter in Scorpio. Stay tuned…Thanks for reading.  Jenae

OTTERSPACE ASTROLOGY —WISH UPON A STAR — JUPITER IN VIRGO — 8-11-2015 to 9-9-2016

Dear Friends and Readers. Jupiter transits through each sign in roughly one year, so Jupiter entering Virgo last occurred 12 years ago. There’s a lot of talented astrologers posting about Jupiter in Virgo. Some posts are quite technical. My preference is not to write for other astrologers but to write for everyday people who have some background and familiarity with astrology and would like to know more. I write these posts with teaching in mind. Planting seeds…

In 45 years I have never lost my passion for understanding people through astrology. I like helping people by bringing astrology down to earth and focusing on solutions to problems they may face, as well as alerting them to opportunities. Gee, folks, have you guessed? Yes, I have Virgo 1st house :)) (late Leo rising). Lately, I find myself with a keen desire for organizing shelves and drawers :))  Bringing order to chaos might be one theme in the coming year, but on all levels — physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. We’ll explore that shortly.

I noticed that some astrologers are charging money for their Jupiter in Virgo posts. I may do that next year when Jupiter enters my 2nd house. It will probably be $12 because I like the number 12 — 12 signs, 12 houses, etc. But this year I still want to shake things up a bit and not use the old format of going through each rising sign. One, I don’t have time. I’m very busy. Two, I want fresh growth, something new…

So here is my idea. I want a few people to write to me on the private reading page and give me complete birth data. Then we’ll put up the chart for all to see ( initials rather than names) and I will point out where the Jupiter opportunities are occurring in that chart. If I get swamped with requests, I may not choose your chart, but I can do some and we will all learn from them together. Learning should be fun !! I want to bring Jupiter in Virgo out of theory and into real life…

OK, if you know where the Virgo energy is in your chart, that’s where Jupiter will expand your opportunities. The only caveat is Jupiter is so expansionary that sometimes a bit of moderation is required to manifest the best luck and growth. In addition, this year is a little tricky for Mutable signs since Saturn will square Virgo from Sag, and Neptune in Pisces will oppose Virgo. This forms what is called a T-square and impels a lot of energy out the empty spot — Gemini. In fact, late May and June 2016 when the Sun, Mercury, and Venus transit through Gemini and create kind of a mutable grand cross. Time management and clear and careful communication will be critical. Mars retrogrades in Sag at 8 degrees and goes back to 23 degrees Scorpio 4-17-16 to 6-29-2016. Same time frame. Mercury is retro 4-28 to 5-22-2016 but in Taurus. Still, next spring is a time to be cautious regarding travel, communication, and important documents and/or contracts. Probably a good time to stay home and organize your filing cabinet as well as making copies of important papers !!!

Virgo is one sign associated with health, nutrition, cleanliness, small pets, gardening (Virgo = the harvest), accounting and bookkeeping, troubleshooting problems and finding brilliant solutions. Jupiter brings you opportunities in these areas. Check which house is Virgo in your chart for further clues and fine-tuning…

Virgo at its best means finding joy in small domestic tasks and chores, not making any difference between work and fun, finding joy through being of service to others, letting your work or hobbies be a labor of love, mastering the details and bringing all the small parts into a beautiful cohesive whole. Like assembling a jigsaw puzzle. I think Jupiter here will help us keep the big picture in mind, even while sorting through a bunch of details. IMO, if we can find the joy in doing the dishes, the floor, the laundry, cleaning the bathroom, etc. as a daily process without lust of result, if we make no difference between pulling weeds and harvesting our garden, if we find joy INSIDE ourselves no matter what we are doing — that is a successful life in the spiritual sense. All other earthly rewards follow and will manifest in your life as a result of that inner peace and happiness. On a more mundane level, this passion for excellence and order and organization may well manifest as a raise, a promotion, a new job, etc. There may also be opportunities for travel and/or further education at work that will be paid for by your employer.

I have noticed that men with either Mercury and Venus in Virgo or Venus and Mars in Virgo are excellent with building and woodworking. Must be that precision applied to the details :))…they do beautiful work.

Jupiter in Virgo offers us a chance to improve health and wellness through incorporating new information, possibly new research coming out about the food we eat. Food is the best first line of defense against illness. And there is more new research already about the benefits of exercise and movement vs. being sedentary.

Virgos are famous for spotting the flaws, and Jupiter here could exaggerate that tendency. Sometimes Virgos are so hard on themselves they get headaches. Jupiter could also be helpful to be more positive and optimistic about who you are, helping your inner thought patterns lighten up, help you be more TOLERANT of yourself and others. I think we have a choice here. New information and philosophies about our thinking and analyzing processes can help reprogram how we view ourselves. Besides, isn’t it more fun to be a Santa Claus instead of a sourpuss?

Most Virgos are wonderful about organizing stuff. Whether its on the mental or physical level, this is a great year to organize your home, your work environment, your hobbies and tools, your health — both mental and physical, and your outlook on life in general. One of my daughters found a great website a few years ago — www.flylady.com   It’s about making housework easier, being organized, and they sell great tools for household chores.

Time management will be more important for all of us this year, no matter where your Virgo energy is in your chart, and this is due to so many mutable sign transits. Be on time or even a bit early. Avoid gossip, rumor and innuendo. Let people tell their own news. Strive for the ideal but keep in mind that perfection does not exist on the material plane, so don’t kick yourself for honest mistakes. Strive for CONSTRUCTIVE criticism rather than harsh words that immediately put other people on the defensive. And you guys know me by now — don’t forget to grow a garden !!! Even if it’s just a few herb plants. That makes you a producer and not just a consumer. Virgos get a great sense of satisfaction from being productive :))… Blessings, Jenae
