As noted in part 2, What Does the Chart of Jupiter Conjunct Pluto at the Galactic Center Tell Us? this Jupiter conjunct Pluto happens once in 12 years, and both the chart done for the time of the conjunction and the location of the conjunction itself yield profound insights as to how it will affect each sign for the next dozen years. Today we take a brief look at this 12 year influence for each of the signs.
Here you hit a fork in the road. Astrologers will want to reference the next four paragraphs. If you just want to know how it will impact your specific Sun or Rising sign, just skip the next few paragraphs and you'll cut to the chase and get to the heart of the matter.
For the astrologers, here's the nut. To refresh you, the conjunction fell at 29 Sagittarius. The chart showed Sun and Mercury conjunct Jupiter and Pluto, a Grand Water Trine, and a Mystic Rectangle involving Moon, Mars, Saturn, and Uranus. Mercury and the Sun were sextile Neptune in Aquarius, and the Grand Water Trine featured Mars RX in Cancer and Venus in Scorpio trine Uranus releasing energies through the Sun-Mercury squares to Uranus. The voids will release the energies for years to come. With Venus trine Mars, there will be harmonization between areas in our charts ruled by Venus and Mars (Aries, Taurus, Libra, and Scorpio) for the next 12 years within the context of the Jupiter-Pluto long cycle.
The Sun and Mercury square Uranus with the conjunction in late Sag show abrupt changes and upheavals which will most affect people with planets between 15-20 and 27-30 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. The harmony of the Water Trine and power of the Mystic Rectangle most impacts those people with planets near 7-15 degrees of Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces. As I wrote about the Rectangle in part 2:
The Moon is part of a Mystic Rectangle formed with Mars at 8 Cancer, Saturn at 9 Virgo, and Uranus at 15 Pisces. The two oppositions will no doubt crank things up tremendously, so it's very good that we have a Moon trine Saturn and Mars trine Uranus along with Mars sextile Saturn and Moon sextile Uranus to provide us many opportunities for productivity and understanding while we're dealing with the amped-up Fire of this conjunction in late Sag septile Neptune. Including Venus in the mix, we have 5 points of a Grand Sextile across the Earth and Water elements, with the void in Taurus.
The chart is a Locomotive pattern, with the empty third between Uranus in Pisces and Mars RX in Cancer. Therefore people with planets in Aries, Taurus, and Gemini will naturally fill the generic void. These are the qualities and skills that will seem lacking in situations governed by the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction, so it is up to us to balance the void through using these energies wisely when needed.
Here's a brief look at how the conjunction will impact each sign. Remember to read your rising sign as well!
Aries - Prepare for new developments professionally, which could involve traveling, teaching, writing or publishing. Get your view and motive in shape to welcome the new freedom, mobility, understanding, and powerful turning points to come. Trust feelings that help you put it all together.
Taurus - Take a broader look at your magnetism and why you attract what you do or don't. You've been getting exactly what you desired, and this begins a long period of letting go of obsolete things to make space in your life for a new adventure and power. Feelings lead to understanding.
Gemini - Many challenges from unexpected quarters. This brings in public recognition and new relationships with people far away from wherever you've been, or in an academic setting. Just try not to get too fragmented or scattered as you attract learned, intense people.
Cancer - You're preparing for new openings in the world of work and relationships, and already seeing greater truths, futures, and need for a wider point of view about what you do and how you do it. Show humor in the workplace. Don't let excesses undermine your health.
Leo - This opens new doors of creativity and can help you get to the core of your spontaneity (or why it's not there). If you have children, they're about to take off in a big way! Eliminate excess baggage, or desires that only obstruct your freedom. Take command of your magnetism.
Virgo - Prepare to move, or at the very least expect a lot more activity in your home, such as a study group, publishing project, or maybe even people from far away or another culture coming for frequent visits. This frees you from an old relational pressure.
Libra - This opens a new view, as well as radical new awarenesses via your neighbors or siblings. Your work will take on a new intensity, and your health is going through long term changes. Maintain optimism, try foreign remedies, and learn all you can about elimination and regeneration.
Scorpio - Expect financial offers that could transform your life, but make sure everything is above board. Take a broader view of how to use your assets, try distant investments, or those with a long term payoff. If you have children, this concludes an old way of understanding them.
Sagittarius - This ends one adventure, and begins an even more intense one! You're going to be on the move again, but be alert to the seeds of things to come. Get your home in shape so you can have a greater mobility, and if appropriate, get more education, since it will open doors.
Capricorn - This should bring long term rewards and protection from everything but your own excesses or self-destructive judgments. Your view is opening up to wider things, and you'll be attracting some fairly intense friends in the future. Just make sure they're honest with a sense of humor.
Aquarius - This ends a couple of old friendships, and brings in a couple more. Get a wider set of ambitions, and if possible, join a study group that can help you understand mysteries. Your values and resources are undergoing long term transformations. Magnetism and vision are high.
Pisces - This ends and begins a whole new public life or profession. You've got some flowers to push up and out to others, and this starts a long term regenerative phase that despite the blockages and challenges, helps you open to new ideas, new views, new truths, and new life adventures.
On a final note, all signs can expect significant personal transformations driven by the larger tide of expanding global transformation promised by this conjunction. Of course, this conjunction falls within the Grand Irrationality, expanding those weird energies into a new level of manifestation for 12 years to come. As noted in another article, the planets in Earth and Water will help us stay grounded and practical if we halfway try, and show lots of promise in helping us target unhelpful emotions and grow into a new maturity.
Mars retrograde will make for interesting effects over the coming 12 years (yes, it will be a factor!), assisting us figure out some things about needs, supply, feelings, what we do or do not, should or should not care about, all helping us "get fit" for whatever personal, social, and spiritual goals we choose to embrace.
I suspect there will be one last gasp these next 12 years of old hurts, quarrels, or clashes from prior points in history. It can bring us all a new sensitivity to others' needs and feelings, and could actually help us break down and through old emotional barriers to find a transcendent way to do our Being. Mars retrograde in Cancer RX certainly could show as a "reversal of supply," or at least a slowing down of that function, so plan for the future however that applies to you. On the whole the coming 12 years will truly bring us all a "back to the future" vibe.
