Making Big Plans
Jupiter is the planet connected with Truth and Pluto is Power. Pluto is a very slow moving planet- it takes approx. 248 years to orbit through the zodiac. It moved into Saturn’s sign of Capricorn in 2008 and stays there until 2023.
It joined Jupiter in 2008 in the last degrees of Sagittarius, and so began a new cycle. The current cycle is far more important than ever before, because this Jupiter-Pluto conjunction took place close to the Galactic Center.
Jupiter move fast and takes just 12 years to encircle the whole zodiac. It is the biggest planet in our Solar System and as such represents expansion, support and improvement in the area it transits in your chart.
It is now moving through the earth sign of Taurus, the sign that relates to physical beauty, sensuality, money and values. It is our self worth and as such the money we earn.
In the tarot, pictured right , Jupiter is the Wheel of Fortune, Pluto The Judgement card. Osho describes it as ‘Beyond Illusion’.
Jupiter isn’t a planet of money, rather its the principle of abundance and prosperity. With Pluto shown as Beyond Illusion, this reveals how Pluto is the planet of death and rebirth, of a phoenix rising from the ashes.
This is a time to make big plans, to dream your dream and use this earth energy to ground it. That means, write it down, draw or paint it. Create a vision Map.
Pluto is the God of the Underworld. As such, it is the unconscious and all that is buried and hidden including buried treasure. It governs the Mafia and the Secret Service. Watch the Lord of The Rings series to see how power can corrupt- only Bilbo Baggins who is pure of heart can survive.
It rules transformation. Now in an earth sign it is digging deep and excavating all that is hidden and buried. As it travels through Capricorn- the sign that rules institutions and business, this is a necessary purging, as we are being asked to clean up our collective act.
The last 2 weeks have seen the extraordinary scandal erupt in the Uk as the Murdoch Empire is crumbling. Rupert Murdoch is said to be one of the most powerful men in the world, he has certainly been dominating the media for the longest time.
It’s ironic that the recent trine – a positive flow from Jupiter to Pluto has brought about his downfall. This combination of planets is the signature of Emperors and Press Barons, and he has the conjunction in his chart. However Jupiter is the law, the moral justice of the King of the Gods, which is now being brought to bear on Rupert Murdoch.
How does this affect you?
For the best idea of how Jupiter can help you, you need to know which house (area of life) it will enhance. For a personal astrology report that covers this cycle, my clients recommend Stephen Forrest Sky Log.
Its written in an entertaining style but he doesn’t pull any punches. You can order it to start at any date, so this half yearly review is a perfect time to understand how to best navigate through these difficut times.
Here’s an excerpt on Rupert Murdoch’s current transit of Pluto trining natal Neptune. He’s a Pisces with Capricorn and Saturn rising:-
[jbox color=”yellow”]”The planet Pluto is shading the spirit of your life nowadays, and in a nutshell that means that you are being challenged to heal.
Pluto, as you probably know, is the lord of the underworld…or to put it more succinctly, the God of Hell. And it is disquieting, to say the least, to imagine that this deity is currently dining at your table.
But take heart! The “hell” inside you needs airing out, and that is essentially what this transit is about.
You’ve been hurt. You’ve been used, abused, rejected, exploited, lied to…the whole sad litany. And, like the rest of us, you’ve sometimes had to keep the proverbial stiff upper lip and simply get on with your life.
But where does all that hurt go? Down deep into the unconscious mind, where it stays until you’re clear enough and strong enough to handle resurrecting it and really going beyond it.
Pluto’s action is to bring up buried emotions. Its tone is intense. It often feels moody and confrontative. It can destabilize and disrupt the areas of your life that it’s touching. The best course is to resolve to go deeper and deeper, truth above kindness and resolution over comfort.”[/jbox]
