Jupiter is now within range of its long term conjunction with Neptune in Aquarius. This has important implications for every sign, since this powerful union only occurs every 12 years. Where it falls shows how we will relate to the collective consciousness and what we have to learn from and offer to our collective field for many years to come.
Every time Jupiter conjuncts a planet outside of its orbit, it sets major collective expansions into motion for the next 12 years. Jupiter conjuncted Pluto in December 2007 at the Galactic Center, launching major purifications and transformations on a global level. These will be triggered every time a planet crosses the conjunction point.
We now have Jupiter conjuncting Neptune for all of 2009. This launches major 12 year expansions in collective consciousness, since Jupiter expands anything it touches and Neptune symbolizes collective consciousness. This particular time in history is very important, since it closes a cycle started back in 1996-97 and opens another that will last until 2022.
Coupled with its conjunctions with Pluto and Neptune, Jupiter will complete its series of fusions with the outer, invisible spiritual planets when it conjuncts Uranus in Aries and Pisces 3 times between Spring 2010 and January 2011. These conjunctions will launch Uranian long wave revolutionizing energies promising many years of instability and radical transformation for the entire world.
Jupiter and Pluto set truths and futures into motion. Jupiter and Neptune are setting ideals and social reorganization into motion. Jupiter and Uranus will set closures and karmas into motion, as well as dramatic new beginnings of long range transformation. Sagittarius, Aquarius, and Pisces are all in the "harvest third" of the zodiac, where the actions and reactions create results. Aries, of course, is the sign of new beginnings.
So Jupiter is setting some very heavy new growth into manifestation, given the far reaching effects of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto cycles. Its conjunction with these 3 transpersonal planets during this 3 year period sets up long term patterns that will take us through this "Winter of the 21st Century," and show what we can expect in the years ahead of us. I'll be writing more about these long wave cycles in the future.
These long wave conjunctions are general energy fields that are activated whenever an inner planet crosses the points where the conjunctions occurred. Though it may be many months before any inner planet moves through the outer planet conjunction zone, nevertheless the effect is triggered very powerfully.
That's why sometimes we wonder why something is happening that doesn't seem able to be explained by the transits. The only thing to remember is that these are general conditions rather than specific conditions. Specific conditions are shown by the transits to our particular planetary positions.
Tomorrow we'll explore more about the specifics of the current Jupiter conjunction Neptune lasting through all of 2009.
