Pluto and its Nodes, their planetary rulers, and aspects to these from other planets, correlate to the root structure within any birth chart. From that root, all else – the South/North Nodes of the Moon, their planetary rulers, and aspects to these points – are ‘birthed’ from that root. It’s like a tree that has branches where the root produces the trunk of the tree, and the trunk then produces branches with leaves. This core root and its branches within the birth chart is treated EQUALLY for it is the very structure of the chart itself
Pisces is a dual sign and the last sign of the zodiac. It can bring us to extremes – hopelessness and infinite possibility vie for our commitment. Mars is an engine, and in Pisces it’s a formula-one racing car breaking speed records – and stalling unexpectedly.
With Mars in Pisces, we’ll be tempted to go to extremes in all areas of life, from politics to sexuality. It’s an intense energy that can push us forward at top speed, only to realize that we’re lost.
Mercury is about to retrograde yet again, this time for the last of four loops in 2016 and I am sure that you eagerly anticipating more warnings concerning signing documents; losing keys; data disappearing into the cloud; electricity outages; communications mishaps and delays?
But is the purpose of this thrice annual cycle to frustrate and annoy you? Is it solely about negative things happening? If so, are these increased challenges the sole domain of Mercury approaching his Inferior Conjunction with the Sun?
It starts in heaven and ends in hell. First, successfully losing weight, but soon enough losing control instead, developing an addiction to food. An estimated 70 million people worldwide suffers from a serious eating disorder (ED) and many die trying to beat the fat. At the core of the ED spectrum, ranging from anorexia and bulimia to binge eating and orthorexia, we find a fascinating connection to the mythology of Earth Mother Ceres, the goddess of fertility and grain, and her daughter, the young maiden Proserpina. It is a myth of change and of natural transition
As Jupiter enters Libra in September for his once in 12-year visit, the global scene has rarely been in such a state of ‘high tension’! Brexit has revealed a new level of anti-establishment sentiment fuelling the revolutionary urge for change, the force underpinning the 2010’s, as the USA heads toward elections in the midst of anger, confusion & disillusionment, and global terror events are escalating.
Your Jupiter in Libra for your Sun sign and rising sign, where can you expect an upgrade, update, boost with the great benefic making his next big move!
The history of Jupiter in Libra offers us some key moments in our current story with the formation of the EEC in 1957, which then morphed into the EU in 1993 with the Euro currency – (also first World Trade Centre bombing). Then 2004 saw the enlargement of NATO as the EU incorporated most of former Eastern Bloc. During the past 12 years we’ve had the first GFC in 2008, with subsequent controls from central banks who offered massive loans to lesser EU members with debt they could never repay.
The Jupiter- Saturn squares of 2016 offer us an opportunity to finally fine tune the application of our beliefs and philosophies to our work, our daily habits, and to our self care. It’s a clarion call to `walk our talk,’ even if that walk feels as though we are navigating a tightrope. This is a call to action to get serious (Saturn) about what we say is our highest purpose ( Jupiter). It’s time to get to work; reformat, restructure and create habits which are reflective of our deeply held beliefs.
Lord of the Underworld, Pluto is the repository of the secrets of life and death. The Underworld is a dark place; the fount of human depravity; cruelty, torture, murder, greed, evil and violence. Its power is intense and relentless.
The planet named for this dark entity travels the zodiac in a slow elliptical orbit of 248 years, spending anywhere from 13 to 30 years in each sign of the zodiac. On 26 January 2008 Pluto leaves Sagittarius and crosses a pivotal threshold moving into Capricorn. This is an epic time that portents dramatic upheaval.
