This week’s Horoscopes are coming out under the light of a Capricorn Moon, in the wake of Jupiter’s movement from Scorpio to Sagittarius. When a big planet makes its ingress into a new sign, it is always worth a little extra attention.
Jupiter changes signs approximately once a year. When it does, the higher mind of the collective takes on the vibration of the archetype that governs the sign that Jupiter is passing through. In Sagittarius? Jupiter is the natural ruler of this stretch of the Zodiac. It is here that its energies shine like the Sun and where it is free to express its natural, wide open, bigger than life, benefic proclivities with no interference.
Because Sagittarius has the capacity to embrace the idea that we are all brothers, who are all part of the same tribe, and that within our intrinsic oneness there are at least 7.5 billion ways to connect with the Divine, with Jupiter being the force that opens our eyes to the existence of God, for the next year our lessons are bound to include the need to get big enough to make room for the idea that it’s high time we figured out how to let it be, and to live and let live. The ability to embody the belief that there is unity in diversity becomes a key issue under this influence.
With all of the crazy things that are going on in the world, it’s easy to see how all of the above is already right in our face. The questions of open borders, the tensions that put the various religious and spiritual ideologies on opposite sides of the fence, on the temporal level, the separative energies that split political factions into warring parties, along with the seemingly Mickey Mouse stuff that assigns us to one class, or one gang, or one clique, or another; these things, and the multitude of other conflicts that pit us against each other, highlight issues that underscore the need for all of us to look at what it might take to get real enough to come together in unity, instead of making things wrong or right, or black and white. With any luck we will find a way around our differences, and even though I am full of hope for the future of humanity, at the moment, things are looking pretty bleak.
On paper, and intellectually, as much as it’s easy for us to sit around and talk about the idea that we are all one in the nuts and bolts of our daily lives, nobody “gets” it, and hardly anyone is actually walking that talk. We pay lip service to these things, but we pass judgment in ways that are so subtle and unconscious, the fact that we are drawing lines, and separating ourselves from our brothers and sisters gets lost in the gap between what we say and what we do.
When we talk about Jupiter in Sagittarius let us be reminded that it passes through this sign once every 12 years. It entered the Sign of the Archer 12 years ago, in 2006, and extending back further in 1994, 1983, 1971, 1959, 1947, and so on, spending one year in that archetype, each time. Going back through history, in approximately 12 year increments, it’s easy to track Jupiter’s cycles. Within this perspective, what this shows us is that we have had many opportunities to remember that we are all brothers and sisters, all part of the human tribe, and that there are at least 7.5 billion ways to connect with the Divine.
Time and repetition are the only teachers here. With each successive return to its stint in Sagittarius, who knows? Maybe the slow turning of the Jupiter frequency etches itself into our hearts, and into the human DNA little by little, down through the generations, over the course of time. It could be that 2019 will be the year that whatever this influence is meant to create in us reaches critical mass, and that we will finally begin to wake up and remember who we are, embody what it means to co-exist on this planet in a state of unity and oneness, and learn how to live ‘In a state of self-governance, humility, and righteousness’.
I was born with Jupiter in Sagittarius, and I hold out the hope that these things are not only possible, they have everything to do with what we are here for. Let me leave you with that, wish you a happy Veteran’s Day, and invite you to take what you can from this week’s ‘scopes.
