We now bid a fond farewell to Jupiter in Capricorn trine Saturn in Virgo, harmonizing anything we may have in the middle degrees of Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces, along with early Scorpio, early Aries, early Cancer and early Sagittarius. There are more sectors, but I can't possibly list them all here. Of course, the joker in the deck is that everything moving through the first degrees of Sagittarius over the next week septile Jupiter, closing out the old inner planet cycles of Jupiter and showing us, however briefly, the seeds of things to come.
As Sun, Mercury, and Mars all form various conjunctions with each other, it sets into motion their respective cycles for the next year. As you know from the recent Mars transit article this is creating major activity for anyone with planets in early Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, or Pisces, as well as those with planets in the middle degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, and Libra.
This affects different birthdays as well as generations, according to where the outer planets fall. I can't comment on all of them right now, due to time constraints. But for those with curiosity, check your local ephemeris or your chart and I'm sure you'll find correlations. And lest you think this time is only about stress, it also begins a series of conjunctions with Jupiter and Pluto that will unleash the promise building the past year, and open doors of perception and activity that will yield rewards we've been waiting for beginning early December.
Stay focused on whatever elements of "Group Performance" are showing themselves, since the party begins within the next couple of weeks. There are many noviles to Jupiter in the near future, so there should be numerous spiritual realizations to be captured as preparatory stages for some new and exciting things to come between now and late February, which marks the true point of the emergence of everything that will dominate 2009-2010.
While early December may be a bit of a gear grind due to numerous squares from Sag to Saturn in Virgo, this also is an opening to new duties and responsibilities. Be adaptable, learn what you must, and be forgiving and compassionate as you say goodbye to a rapidly fading era.
Venus heralds Aquarian things to come beginning the second week of December, so heads up. This is the front end of a time of working hard in an organized fashion to bring forth the structures of the future. These will move forward as each of the inner planets conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn, setting entirely new cycles into motion, some not known for 250 years. Aum Namah Shivaya!
