Jupiter in Sagittarius: High Hopes & A Reality Check

Jupiter moved into Sagittarius today. Jupiter is a social planet, outside of our personal boundaries, and brings like-minded groups together. With Jupiter changing signs into its home sign, this brings an openness to new opportunities and expands your optimism. Issues in the Sagittarius areas of your chart seem to be opening up and going well. Jupiter opens your awareness through these opportunities that come in these areas of your chart as well, so you may generally be more positive here than negative.

While you may think Jupiter is Sagittarius is automatically great for all Sagittarians or your Sagittarius planets, there are several mitigating factors to be aware of.  High hopes do not always mean getting everything you want, and not getting what you think you want is sometimes an even better learning experience.

While there is a freeing up of the need to dig deep and feel intensely as you reached out (or retreated) while Jupiter was in Scorpio, the overall tone with this transit is the focus on beliefs and philosophies. It’s hard to go anywhere these days without hearing some political topic being spoken about or debated. Jupiter also can bring out overly boisterous opinions and views to individuals and groups that band together. So depending on your relationship to the topic of the day and whether it fuels you or drains you, this transit can have a variety of effects. Be aware of your personal needs; to participate or not, within the public displays that come your way.

Astrological charts with other fire planets and/or angles, (in trine aspect) can seem to have the most beneficial opportunities fall in their laps now. These can always be mitigated by other harder alignments in the chart.

So what can go wrong? For starters, Jupiter has been in good aspect to Saturn all the while it was passing through Scorpio the past year or so. This was positive for drive and follow through on a course of action.

Jupiter will, in a few months, be making a square to Neptune (fantasy, vision and dreams). This brings up the idea of making dreams a reality in a big way. You’ll need to do a reality check with what you are actually doing to make your dreams happen or see if your ideas are not possible to carry out. Start testing your goals now to see if your vision can be concretely manifested or you may find you are wasting your time.

Where is Jupiter in your chart now, and what aspects is it making by progression or solar arc and how is it triggering your inner and outer life? If you want a current map as well as one for the months ahead, contact me for a personal reading and we will go over the best times to use Jupiter’s transits as well as all the other planets’ moves to optimize your efforts.

Venus Retrograde – Old Loves & New Values

This year from October 5th to November 15th Venus will be retrograde from 11° Scorpio to 25° Libra. What does it mean when Venus is retrograde? Venus stands for love, values and pleasures. Love can be harder to come by either romantically or with friendships, and the inflow of money can slow down. Now is also the time for review of what you value in closeness with others as well as your worth for your work.  During this part of Venus’ cycle, old loves or friends either come back into your life to be reassessed or finally dismissed.

Things/people come back:

  • Old loves
  • Friends and people from the past
  • Objects we lost may now be found

What to do when these things return?

  • Reassess who the person/object is and decide what relevant value they had in your life. Now is a good time to appreciate what you learned or gained from the relationship. Resolve the past, let it go, and move on. On occasion, this cycle can bring back a relationship that will remain in your life – but that would depend on numerous factors being present in your chart.

What not to do when these things return?

  • Do not get attached to the past – this is a cycle for review.

A New Relationship?

This Venus retrograde begins in Libra, the sign of balance, justice and relationships. This is an ideal time for things to be evened out and put back into proper balance in relationships with others. With a new love, the retrograde Venus will likely have the new love only present part of the picture when around you or communicating with you.  This may not be deliberate – but you still will not see the entire scenario in which you may be getting involved. You will not see their entire motivation, nor know the safety of the situation. This includes intimacy – you don’t know the person’s past yet, or who they fully are, so play it safe and wait.

This is not the time to make a big purchase – because if you are impulsive, you will spend more than necessary, and may regret the purchase later. Objects of art, a new home, anything to do with décor or beautifying yourself (haircut/color, cosmetic surgery etc.) will all not turn out as planned. Either more research needs to be done on your part, or the information you are getting is not complete. You may have a different aesthetic than the person selling you the surgery, the haircut or that new iPhone – so you will need to be cautious. I knew someone who went into a photo shoot and the photographer decided to touch-up all the photos before showing them to the client. The photographer made the client look 18 when they were 40, so none of the photos could be used! Different aesthetic = expensive lesson. Another person bought an apartment during the retrograde, and it wasn’t until the sale was nearly complete and the scaffolding came down across the street that they saw their view was a real eyesore – a hot pink awning. They ultimately did not complete the sale and lost most of their deposit.

The fortunate part of Venus Retrograde –

In purchases, often at this time, someone needs to sell something to make money fast and you have the opportunity to buy the item at a much reduced price! Someone gets the short end of the stick.. so let it be the ‘other’ person! It is a good time to go to estate sales, yard sales, and sales in general. As long as you heed the advice that you may buy something and change your mind once you get it home, and do not overspend, you can get some great buys during Venus retrograde.

Other things you can expect are for money to be delayed that you are counting on, or surprises with money and partnerships. Review what you value and your personal values during this cycle. You may find a job is not up to the same level as your more confident self-view at this time.  If that is the case, look for a better job. The same goes for relationships. While fighting during this retrograde may seem productive, find out where you may not be feeling valued in the relationship and communicate that and make alterations. Try not to be secretive, as Venus is in Scorpio for much of this retrograde and that makes us want to hide our deeper feelings.

Unsure of a new love? Think you should break up? Get a new job? What does it mean if Venus is going to ‘station on a planet or angle of your chart? A professional look at your chart can clarify in what area(s) exactly what is happening in your life with the Venus retrograde. Contact me and let’s see whether Cupid or Venus Retrograde is bringing in new or old loves into your life.

Fall Forecast 2018

A look at some of the outer planets to plan your fall trajectory.

What to look out for –

Jupiter is now traveling direct in Scorpio – so those with planets  or points in this sign, or trine or sextile Scorpio – as in the water and earth signs, should be getting new opportunities and feeling positive about the future. A sense of optimism comes with Jupiter transits, so also look to the house where Jupiter is transiting. Jupiter enters its home sign of Sagittarius on November 8th  where abundance and expansion in all things that broaden our lives and open our minds will start to come about.

Saturn, the builder, is now moving direct as well. Saturn structures our lives by pushing us to make thorough preparations for success. The direct motion of Saturn also assists with projects that were held up from progressing this summer.

October 6th Venus, planet of love and money, will go retrograde. What to do: resolve issues from a past romance, rekindle with an old love, find accounting errors and collect past due monies. What not to do: start a new romance, make large purchases such as an apartment, piece of art etc., do not try a new hairstyle as your stylist will have a different aesthetic than you do, same with cosmetic surgery. Only corrective surgery may be warranted.  Photo shoots are also not recommended during this time for the same reason as the photographer will have a different perspective what looks good. Venus retrograde lasts until Nov. 16th and leaves the shadow on Dec. 10th.

On October 8th, we finally leave the shadow of the draining Mars retrograde from this summer. Scroll down to my How To Use Mars retrograde article from a couple months back to see if your experiences mirrored those described in my article. Projects that you may have been working on tirelessly are finally able to move forward with greater momentum now. Start to take action, but the real push will be most productive after the 8h of October.

Looking ahead to Nov. 8th, Uranus goes back into Aries where it will finally make its last station in that sign the first week of 2019. This should be your final call to straighten out any chaotic or disruptive circumstances or relationships, and to re-focus on your personal needs in whichever area of your chart where Aries is. If you don’t have your chart or can’t read it, contact me for a personal forecast with all the planets, return and retrogrades etc. affecting your chart for the coming year.
