Posts Tagged ‘Jupiter’

Good Afternoon dear Readers and Friends…there was an interesting piece on CNBC this morning about continuing education within the workplace.  Evidently there have been numerous surveys that show the number one desire of employees is to keep growing, learning, and advancing in their current job.  That sounds like a great definition of Jupiter in Capricorn — employer-sponsored education.  What a perfect time to implement new policies to make  that happen !!  Just remember, you heard it here first :)) That’s what I love about astrology; it can show you what’s coming…

If you have Cancer rising, then Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto are all transiting in your 7th house of partnerships.  The 7th can be marriage, business partnerships, mentor/teacher relationships — really any important one on one relationship. The 7th is also the house of open enemies.  I have watched people’s charts for over 50 years and I have seen many, many people either marry or divorce when either Jupiter or Saturn transit into their 7th house.  Now if you have been feeling that you are carrying more responsibility in a relationship than feels fair, since Saturn and Pluto are already in your 7th, it is entirely possible that Jupiter will bring help and improve your situation. If you are a conservator or a POA for a senior in your life then you ARE carrying more responsibility.  There are 2 legal houses — Libra and Sag, 7th and 9th — and Jupiter here could indicate the signing of legal papers or even a court ruling that eases the situation. If you are a teacher then Jupiter could be indicating a raise or promotion for the work you do. If you are in a business partnership, there could be ill health or some other reason why one partner wants to dissolve the company.  Or maybe it’s just a lack of agreement on how to move forward.  If it’s business this could be a tricky year, 2020, due to all 3 inner planets in retrograde at different times.  Keep an eye on the books and seek legal advice if necessary. If you are in a great partnership, don’t get all paranoid over what I have just written — everything may be fine, just be watchful, vigilant if necessary, and avoid big risks this year. After all, if you have worked hard and been sincere, Jupiter could help you land a big contract!! The signing of important papers in 2020 — avoid 2/16 to 3/10, and 5/13 to 7/12, and 9/9 to 11/13/2020.

If you have Leo rising, then the Capricorn planets are in your 6th house of health, work, and service.  I think you need to put your health front and center and make it your top priority. Finding a better work/life balance could be important.  Be proactive and take good care of your bones, joints, and teeth.  Jupiter here could help you receive excellent care. Let’s say your health is fine. Then maybe the boss from hell is on your case and no matter how hard you work there is not enough appreciation.  Or the policies are annoying. I think Jupiter here could relieve you of that situation and present you with a better job. Of course in Cap it may not fall in your lap, but go looking and you should find a much happier position.  A reminder, a difficult boss is a crash course in leadership.  Just remember how upsetting it was/is and vow to be the opposite when and if you get to be the boss. Study leadership skills — books, classes, workshops, etc.  Capricorn in general represents government, large corporations, and Jupiter could amend that to include libraries, museums, churches, and schools.  Someone told me about a job they saw — booking travel and accommodations for CEO’s. That would fit, too.

If you have Virgo rising, then you get trines from the Cap transits as well as from Uranus in Taurus.  This is your chance to shine, the time when years of hard work and honing your skills should finally pay off.  The 5th house is kids, but also creativity and entertainment. Don’t be shy about working with the public, or marketing your creativity.  If you have been worried about your kids, then Jupiter should bring them some honors or awards or a better job, something that improves their lives. And thus, yours improves, too :)) Just remind them to stay sensible and focused.  A line from a movie that I have been quoting to myself almost daily — “A Mother is only as happy as her saddest child.”  No doubt about it, Saturn in the 5th is tough, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. If you don’t have kids in your life, then your “new baby” is some kind of creative project or a new passion that you pursue tirelessly and with good results. Consider new mediums, new instruments, teaching others what you are expert at doing.

If you have Libra rising, then the Capricorn transits are presenting you with a packed 4th house — home and family.  Most likely seniors, but your physical home could need extra attention, too.  You could be carrying a lot of responsibility for relatives, or people older than you.  I know a nurse with these transits and she visits seniors in their homes. Pay attention if your older relatives have had problems with their bones, joints, and teeth and take good care of yours in case there’s a hereditary issue. Usually when Saturn is transiting the 4th, the person is lonely, or the house is too small or too dark or they don’t like who they live with. The books  don’t tell you that it is one of the best transits for setting up a home office and for working from home. Jupiter in Cap would mean remote work via phone or computer, a nice side gig is possible. So is going back to school online. If you don’t have enough light and putting in a new window won’t work, then get some full spectrum light bulbs and put them in strategic places in your home.  Small mirrors can help bounce more light around, too.  Pay attention to the family history and geneology. You might want to record the elders telling their stories and their memories of their elders.  Saturn-Pluto — family secrets coming to light?

If you have Scorpio rising then Saturn/Pluto/Jupiter are transiting your 3rd house of communication, siblings, the neighborhood, and early education, plus technical studies. When I’m working with a private client and I see Pluto transiting the 3rd and ESPECIALLY if Pluto is making any harsh aspects to their natal planets, I warn them to stay alert to their inner self — someone with a hidden agenda can say all the right words but if we find ourselves feeling uncomfortable around them, it means they may not be truthful.  In those situations we have to trust our intuition. With Saturn, it’s a little different — we have to work on our own inner dialogue — our habitual patterns of self talk and neutralize any negative thinking. This is hard work but must be done. I thought I was such a positive person until Saturn went through my 3rd. All my fears and negatives came to the surface and it got so ridiculously extreme that I set about systematically thinking the opposite each time I caught myself.  Finally, new habits replaced the old ones. TG!! Yeah, on the outer level there can be troubles with siblings or neighbors or the school or the neighborhood, but it’s basic communication and good listening skills that will get you through all that.  It’s the Gemini house after all…Jupiter here will be great for workshops and learning specific skills of all kinds. And it will make it a lot easier to count your blessings each night and remain positive. It’s a great year for writing, too.  The year Jupiter went through my 3rd I think I read about 75 elementary teachers, read their palms, (Gemini arms and hands :)). One teacher would tell another, etc.  It’s a great year if you want to start a tutoring business.  I know someone with these 3rd house transits and they are spending a lot of extra time working with their children on reading and homework.

If you have Sagittarius rising, the Capricorn is your 2nd house of personal money, possessions, talents, hobbies and core values. People with a lot of NATAL planets in their 2nd often moonlight and turn a hobby into a 2nd career.  Sure, money may be tight with Saturn transiting your 2nd but it’s a great transit to set up a 2nd business. Follow the rules re: licensing, certification, etc. Keep clear and accurate financial records. Take classes that will net you a promotion if you’re not ready to leave your 9-5 job. Jupiter should bring you more resources to work with, or a raise at your regular job. Do I think you should splurge and spend your raise on an exotic vacation? Definitely not — Capricorn is a serious sign and ambitious. Cap is about bringing big goals into physical manifestation. Put any new money to work to achieve your goals.  You won’t regret it. Saturn  rules Capricorn — it means delaying immediate gratification for long-term rewards. That could mean buying land.  Or setting up a retirement account. If you are artistic, you might consider upcycling used furniture, or learning upholstery, working with earth materials — wood, stone, brick, metal, etc. — making old things new and beautiful again.

Well, folks, that’s it for now…one way or another, it will be a year to remember…Good Luck !!! Jenae

Back again, dear Friends and Readers…Capricorn is a serious sign. People with NATAL Saturn in their 10th house of career, the Capricorn house, usually have to work from the bottom up to attain any success.  There are no shortcuts — long hours, hard work, and attention to all the details — this is their foundation. People with NATAL Saturn must have traditional education —  college degree, maybe more than one — to attain success in their career. People with NATAL Saturn in their 1st house of presenting themselves to the outside world are usually shy and NOT confident until they work hard on developing themselves and some skills to share with the world. The point is Saturn is a planet of pressure.  Add Pluto conjunct Saturn in this year’s TRANSITS and you have a LOT of pressure. Resistance is futile, so accept the restrictions and pressure and prepare to buckle  down and get to work. Figure out by house what is your weak point and sincerely do all that you  can to strengthen yourself.  I know a guy who is really smart but he is not patient with others. It will be his downfall at work unless he can get a handle on his behavior with co-workers. I know a woman who helps many children but she doesn’t let herself go out to play very much. You guessed it; she has Saturn in her 5th. Looking for a positive example, I know a woman who feels money is somewhat tiresome, but she understands that with Saturn moving into her 8th house, she had better pay attention. And she is doing just that — educating herself about investments and money management in general. It’s those kinds of behaviors that will allow Jupiter in Capricorn to bring positive energy into our lives this year.  Jupiter is considered the lucky planet but in Capricorn it’s not going to fall into our laps this year. EFFORT, consistent effort, is required and THEN you get the goodies :))  All you need to do to understand this  transit is remember that Saturn brings us what we have already earned.  Jupiter might bring it to us a little sooner, or in multiple small doses, but the nature of Capricorn — slow and steady — will prevail…

If you have Capricorn rising, use Jupiter to keep your attitude positive as you slog through a long-term and somewhat restrictive situation.  Develop your leadership skills. Read and study about how a good leader empowers and inspires others to do their best. Since the 1st house is also a symbol of our body as well as personality, do all you can to strengthen and heal your bones, joints, and teeth.  Keep your eyes on the long-term goals that you have set for yourself. You may need more rest this year, as Saturn in your 1st can dampen down your vitality. Make 2020 the year of the POWER NAP :))

If you have Aquarius rising, then Jupiter will be in your 12th house.  This position is called the help at the last minute energy — heavenly help will pull you through when it seems that all is lost. VERY important to add prayer and meditation to your daily life and to read and study the stories of other people who have received this kind of help. Guideposts Magazine would be a good example.  People with Saturn in their 12th often work alone — artists, writers, etc. THREE planets in your 12th is a big deal.  Your life may require you to face your worst fears. I know a guy who has been diagnosed with a progressive illness.  He was afraid of doctors but now has to deal with them.  He is actually receiving good medical care, which he admits. He is working hard to maintain a positive attitude, focusing on what he CAN do.  The 12th is a tricky house; to me it is the hardest house to understand because it has to do  with the contract we agree to before we come to earth.  It can be a house of grief and loss and sorrow, but also one of love and peace and serenity.

If you have Pisces rising, then all the Cap transits will be in your 11th house of friends and groups. Think carefully about making commitments to  groups this year. If it doesn’t feel right, then honor your intuition. If you find a group that you DO like and feel good about, then you will probably have increased responsibility in this group.  It could be a club, a charity, a fraternal organization, a union, or even just a group of friends that gets together on a regular basis.  Usually the activity is not purely social, the 11th is the barn-building/quilting bee energy — there is a purpose beyond the moment.  If Neptune in Pisces is in your 1st house, then consider joining with others to help the animals or the environment.  Cleaning up the beach or helping pet adoption groups would be examples, or planting trees — Uranus in Taurus is making great transits for helping nature, too.

If you have Aries rising, then the 3 Cap planets are potentially challenging you from the 10th house of career, reputation, and authority. Not the easiest time to deal with the government officials, but the transits COULD be encouraging you to be your own authority and not value others peoples’ opinions more than your own.  Sometimes Saturn transiting through your 10th will bestow a difficult boss on you, as a shortcut lesson with a lot of pressure on how to be a good boss yourself :)) NOT easy but you will see the value once the squares have passed… I would suspect that you will need to be more precise with details at work and less argumentative.  Practice  starting your sentences with the word “yes” instead of the word “no” and see if other people become more cooperative.  The more professional you behave, the better.  You could get a big promotion that throws you off balance.  Workshops, coaching, extra training that is related to your career can really help you this year!!

If you have Taurus rising, then all the Cap transits are in your 9th.  What a treat !!  Could be work-related travel, an overseas move, back to school, an increase in your income coming to you from a distance — all these are possibilities designed to help you grow and not get stuck in a rut.  You know you like routine, but Uranus is shaking your life up so you can grow and thrive for years to come.  Remote work from home could be another possibility. If you need a new job, consider something related to legal work or higher ed as possibilities. If you are already happy with your career, expect rewards, but the type that will push you to grow.  You might need to learn a new language.  The gifts you give to others in 2020 should have a touch of good luck attached to them…you want to share prosperity — like a jade plant, or a FengShui frog, or even a small tree to plant as a gift.

If you have Gemini rising, then Capricorn would be your 8th house of shared money matters — things like taxes, insurance, inheritance, investments, mutual funds, etc. Jupiter here can make it easy to get credit, so don’t overextend yourself because Saturn-Pluto says you will have to pay the piper.  However, if you need a long-term loan, like a refi on a mortgage to get a lower rate, then do so, but don’t do it just to get equity out. PLEASE do yourself a favor and ask questions about all things financial and write down the answers in a notebook that is dedicated to 8th house issues.  Live within your budget and obey all financial rules concerning taxes, retirement funds, etc. Get to know and really understand all insurance policies that you have. Ask questions!!  Look for mistakes or misunderstandings !! Doublecheck everything  very carefully and act like Mercury is retrograde all year — that should keep you out of trouble.  If it was me and I was in any kind of financial partnership, then I would be very cautious and keep an eye on the books. This is not a favorable year to loan money or property to someone because it could be a long time or never until you get it back.  That being said, the positives are all in the area of educating yourself about these areas…remember the old phrase…”Give a man a fish and you’ve fed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you’ve fed him for a lifetime.”  Teach yourself how to be the fisherman!!

Well, time for lunch, my friends…more manana…Best wishes, Jenae

Hello dear Friends and Readers, Most of you who follow me know that for the last few years I  post when a major planet changes signs, and I usually go through all the houses. This time I want to start with the nature of Jupiter in Capricorn to give you some general but pertinent information to help you formulate plans for your life. Before I begin, thank you for all the kind words and appreciation I have received over the last 8 years. They mean a lot to me…

Since Jupiter rules philosophy, let me share some of mine :))  To me, astrology is useful when it is practical. This does not negate the more etheric types of astrology that deal with a lot of symbolism and psychology. There is great benefit in using astrology as a tool for inner exploration…the more you meditate and study your chart, the more you will get out of it.  However, I feel that the purpose of my blog is to show you how to use astrology as a timing tool for reaching the goals in your life that help you be happier, to warn you when to lay low and be careful, to encourage you to grow and try new things to build your confidence in yourself, and when to expect the rewards, too. I have an exact trine and a mutual reception between Saturn in Virgo and Mercury in Capricorn. So I am known as a practical astrologer.

Some astrologers will note that Jupiter in Capricorn is in an uncomfortable place, but it is way different than when Saturn was in Sagittarius.  In 2020 Grand Earth Trines are accented.  By now you no doubt have read about the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn that is exact on 1-12-20 at 22 degrees Cap. (You can read my earlier post, too) The negative potential is vast and allowing for orb it is exact December, January, and February.  I already predicted the weather. It’s tough already and is going to get worse. The noise out of DC sets the country on edge and underlines the level of stress that most people are already trying to cope with on a daily basis. We’re going to have climate refugees and there will be a term called plastic dementia in a few years to explain why so many of the marine creatures are attacking humans, etc.  The building codes for foundations will be strengthened (Cap) because it will become fashionable to have rooftop gardens and greenhouses.  Yes, we know about the negatives but what I am finding as I work with individual charts is the country may be falling apart but individuals can shine and create whole new opportunities and businesses for themselves. So, in that spirit, let’s look at Jupiter in Cap as a beneficial influence to somewhat moderate the heaviness of Saturn-Pluto.

Jupiter expands whatever it touches, whether it’s a house or an actual birth planet. Jupiter rules religion, philosophy, higher education, foreign contacts and travel, libraries, books, licensing and ceremonies, humor, tolerance, and  generosity.

Jupiter is only negative through too much of a good thing. Alcohol, workaholic, shopaholic, binging of all kinds. I think Jupiter is more toned down in Capricorn, LESS inclined to go overboard, though having the right work/life balance will be important in 2020.

So…want a better career? Consider going back to school and be sure to look into employer-sponsored education.  Sometimes your job will pay some of the costs.  Education of all kinds is highly favored by this transit as long as there is a tangible result that improves your career, reputation, and public life — because that is what Capricorn rules. It also rules bones, joints, and teeth. ALL of us need to take very good care of these parts of our bodies. Don’t go to excess, start with  gentle stretching and don’t forget to warm up and cool down each time. Invest in dental insurance, or some of the electric toothbrushes, and a good quality mouthwash.  The Edgar Cayce foundation, the A R E in Virginia Beach, used to sell a mouthwash years ago, a good one that came from his readings.

Capricorn is very much about bringing goals into physical manifestion. When you build a house, you start with the foundation.  So 2020 is a great year to embark on a new project, to strengthen your foundation, and to take your responsibilities very seriously.  For some who are at home with children, this may mean taking your authority seriously. For some, it may mean their authority at work.  More on Jupiter in Capricorn tomorrow or the next day…Ciao for now…Jenae

11-8-2018 to 12-2 2019

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

Good Evening, dear Friends and Readers…Do you remember what you were doing 12 years ago, in 2007?  Jupiter takes 12 years to transit through all the signs, and now it is back in its own sign Sagittarius. Especially for people who are Sag or have natal Jupiter in Sag, whatever they focus on during this transit will grow in importance over the next 12 years. Jupiter expands whatever it touches. Every planet or aspect has both positive and negative connotations. Jupiter is considered the lucky planet; it is only negative through too much of a good thing. Here are some examples…too much booze and we get a hangover;  too much fast driving and the penalty could be a ticket; too much optimism and we find ourselves running late to everything and our budget goes into the red…you get the picture. Think about the nature of Jupiter — jovial, generous, upbeat, lucky, tolerant, able to see the future — Sag is one of the prophetic signs.

Sag, ruled by Jupiter is the natural 9th house on the wheel of the zodiac. The 9th is higher education that expands the mind, religion, metaphysics and philosophy, religious ceremonies, licensing and certification, long distance travel and foreign contacts.  Traditionally, Sag rules France, Italy, Switzerland, and Saudi Arabia. Eugene, Oregon is a Sagittarius town — I remember a previous Jupiter in Sag transit where the U of O Ducks had a stellar year:)) To my knowledge, there are no Sag states in the USA. A town’s chart is either the historical founding date, or the date of incorporation. There are astrology books that cover this.  Your local historical society is a great source of information, too.

For people with Sag rising (Ascendant), Jupiter in your 1st grows your confidence in expressing yourself out in the world. Teaching/training others, public speaking, writing — all are possibilities. Jupiter in the 1st usually expands your waistline, so watch those calories :)) It’s also a good time to become pregnant. You may find yourself reading more than usual, or even studying a foreign language. It’s a great year to visualize the kind of future you want for yourself.

Jupiter in your 2nd house will either increase your income through a raise or promotion, or it will increase your income because you decide to turn a personal interest or a hobby into a 2nd job.  This is really a fortuitous time to start your own business — even if small at first, Jupiter here at the start will help it grow in importance in your life. Just make sure you have the proper licensing or certification if it is needed. This transit is a good time to spend money to grow your skills and talents.

Jupiter in the 3rd is great for taking some kind of technical class at your local Community college. Classes that teach specific skills. Bookstores and libraries may become your new favorite hangouts. Usually this transit brings  good news through siblings and  cousins — engagements and weddings, a bigger home, new cars, etc.  It is good for buying a car as long as you check your other transits, AND avoid Mercury retro ( next one is 11-17 thru 12-6-2018. If you are already in school at a 4 year college, this transit is great for a teaching degree and in the 3rd could mean some kind of internship with the local schools K-12.  When Jupiter was in my 3rd, most of my clients that year were teachers. The 3rd also represents neighbors. Perhaps your neighborhood will improve in some way this year. MOST OF ALL, metaphysically, this year is very important to train yourself to think and speak positively. Pay attention to your inner self-talk and neutralize any negatives with positive thoughts!!

Jupiter in the 4th usually expands the family. There might be a new baby coming, as there is in my family, with Jupiter currently in my 4th. It could also symbolize a wedding, or a big family reunion, or relatives coming from a distance to visit you. If you are single, it could mean a new roommate moves in.  This is a great year to trace your roots through genealogy, interviewing the seniors in your family, doing Ancestry.com, 23 and Me, etc. Usually with this transit there is also some improvement in the physical home itself. Maybe you decide to remodel, or it could be something simple like painting one room, or adding a window, or changing the décor.  If you need to move, this next year might be the one… The 4th house is about deep emotions and unconditional love as well as family. This is a time when you can feel more comfortable with yourself and more accepting of your feeling nature. Life is not all logic and analysis.

When I had Jupiter in my 5th when I was younger, my kids won honors and awards, prizes, scholarships, etc. Young people may become more important in your life this year, whether they are your kids or someone else’s.  You might think you are teaching them new fun things, but they are probably teaching you, too :)) The 5th house is light-hearted play, romance, and creativity.  Having fun will be more important this year. Try to find joy in some activity every day for yourself. Those of you who are in the creative arts, or the entertainment industry, music, art, dance, etc….it  could be a VERY good year:))  If you are auditioning, don’t let Jupiter rev you into over-confidence.  Yes, be happy and confident, but stay in balance with yourself. Stay grounded.

Jupiter in your 6th house will improve your job conditions and usually it will bring better health. I saw a couple people get really sick when Jupiter was in their 6th, which is quite unusual, but in both cases they had really excellent care and made a good recovery. The 6th house is who you hire and who hires you. You could get a promotion, or some kind of new work on the job with more pay involved. An old boss may leave and a new one come in. Some of you could even end up with a long-distance move that comes about through your job. Even overseas, if you are so inclined. The 6th is small domestic pets. Perhaps you get a new pet this year. The 6th house rules nutrition. Try moderate amounts of new foods. Remember, Jupiter can exaggerate  whatever it touches. You don’t have to be like the guy I knew who ate nothing but carrots for 6 weeks and turned orange!!  Or the SAG lady I knew who ate almost nothing but salads and made herself really sick.  The body doesn’t fix in a day. It absorbs the love and care you give it and will respond nicely over time.

Well, I done for now…actually all this writing about food has made me hungry:))  I’ll do the other 6 houses tomorrow.  Best wishes, 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
