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…
