Jupiter is now direct in motion once again. It is now re-tracing its steps through Aquarius for the 3rd and last time on its way to assisting all to major transfigurations in January 2010, after which it moves into Pisces. What does this mean for all signs?
Let's review what's happened so far. Jupiter left Capricorn and entered Aquarius in early January 2009. To those with planets in Aquarius, 2009 has launched a new 12 year learning adventure to whatever Aquarius planets Jupiter has conjuncted.
Jupiter is the great expander. Many think it automatically brings wealth, but that's really more a combination of (Venus + Karma + 2nd/8th house dynamic) than Jupiter. Jupiter teaches, blesses, protects, and helps us grow into a larger vision and deeper motive. Jupiter is merciful, generous, abundant in view, and shows us ever-greater life greater adventures.
Jupiter liberates us from old personal conditions represented by Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars, the planets of personality. It is how we grow into ever vaster understanding of possibilities. It is a higher, ever-elusive Truth that keeps us moving into the adventure of discovery.
When balanced with Saturn, the Dharmic limiter, "Ring-Pass-Not," and time-keeper of Karma and karmas, we find ways to express our Saturn through our Jupiter, and our Jupiter through our Saturn. Our responsibilities to learn and teach express as our vision of possibilities to determine our future and Destiny. These two together show as Character, which determines everything in our lives.
In Aquarius, it has opened greater Aquarian growth for those who have embraced the vision. For good or ill, we've all been taught major Aquarius lessons since January! These deal with goals, ambitions, friendships, group work, and a more ideal and significant way of serving our world in cooperation with others. It is where we learn perspective on how all parts are related to the whole. In Aquarius we learn to manage our energies in collective circumstances to be fit for a greater contribution to our world.
It moved forward through Aquarius until going stationary retrograde at 28 Aquarius in mid-June 2009. Then it moved back to 18 Aquarius where it recently went direct. This shows that the period from mid-June through mid-October was about reviewing what we learned or opened to between late March and mid-June.
We now get to finish those lessons as those parts of our inner and outer Jupiter again move forward. We've all had opportunities to see a greater contribution and intelligently prepare, working with an eye to assuring future supply by learning new ways of managing our affairs.
The third experience of this span of degrees ends with the New Year, after which Jupiter moves through the end of Aquarius, a span challenging us to transfigure our individuality and daily lives in early January. In the middle of January it moves into Pisces, one of the signs it rules, where it will continue forward until June 2010 when it briefly moves into Aries.
Almost all 2009 it's been conjunct Chiron and Neptune. These are very powerful energies that help Jupiter grow into tremendous Spiritual potential. How harmonious or difficult the experience is depends entirely on the individual responses to the events this stellium has been associated with.
For some, it has brought a more altruistic vision and yearning of connectedness with other like-minded Souls. For others, it has brought heightened illusions in goals or supposed friendships. Whether deceptions or Divinely Inspired Connectedness, illusions or a greater dedication to a form of world service, Jupiter conjunct Chiron and Neptune has cemented these things in the larger collective field as well as in our own lives in whatever house it's transiting.
We now stand at the beginning of the end of this set of lessons and adventures, preparing to move into the Piscean lessons and adventures the first 5 months of 2010. Things associated with Jupiter will move very quickly the next few months, so if it's offered, grab the brass ring and move into greater circumstances more perfect for your long term growth.
On a final note for today, it could also be said that the Orb of Divine Mercy is now moving forward in all our lives. Many will be blessed, protected, and graced as Jupiter moves across Aquarius and again makes many contacts with our planets.
Our vision and what we've learned will be deepened into a greater compassion and understanding when Jupiter moves into Pisces. While sometimes the going gets obscure there, it also shows us our common humanity through expanded feelings which could lead to a vaster emotional intelligence.
Tomorrow I'll give a brief glimpse of what each set of birthdays can expect to expand or grow toward over the next few months.© Copyright 2009 Robert Wilkinson
