Jupiter In Aries
Saturday January 22 - June 4, 2011
Jupiter in Aries
We have talked a lot about Jupiter in Aries. But let’s give it one more shot. Jupiter was in Aries last summer, exerting pressure on Pluto. At the same time Uranus was also in Aries putting pressure on Pluto. The tension was palpable.
What did we feel during the BP oil spill? What did we feel about the political rhetoric as it heated up? During the summer the UN sanctioned laws against Iran. The General in charge of the Afghanistan Theater, Stanley McCrystal was fired . A record drought in Russia impacted grain exports, flash floods in Pakistan killed thousands and poverty in the US hit a 15 year high. It was a tense summer.
The last time Jupiter was in Aries was 1998 and 1999. Personally, you can look back at that time and see what was going on with you. Where were you starting something new? What roads that had not appeared before were now in front of you beckoning? How were you feeling large? How were you feeling compelled to expand? Where were you putting YOU back in your life? Dare I say, “How were you celebrating YOU?”
We will have a call back or an echo from that time. But on the bigger picture we should take a look at what Jupiter brings between January 22 when it enters Aries and March 11 when Uranus returns to Aries. Uranus is here to demand change and it doesn’t do it gently. The last time Uranus entered Aries was 1929. If you don't know much about that year I suggest you google it along with the 1930's. They were bumpy years. With Uranus, it is earthquakes either physically or emotionally, revolutions either politically or personally, brilliance and breakthrough and chaos and rebels with and without causes.
Like all the outer planets, Uranus is a generational planet. Everyone born within an 8 year window has Uranus in the same sign. So, after March we will be ushering in a new era when Uranus moves into Aries. Okay…but what does that have to do with JUPITER in Aries?
On Saturday January 22, when Jupiter makes his move, we should look to see what is stirred up. What things are big that get our attention? What things come up that offer new roads and new journeys. It is best not to sweep it under the rug. Even if they seem rough or yucky, they can still be an opportunity. And if we don’t want to seize it, we probably will need to after Uranus gets there. Get your notebook out and start taking notes.
