Jupiter recently held hands with the North Node and then stepped back. Just a bit, mind you, and the NN isn’t shy; its following. This makes me think about the grace inherent in the universe. After all, you can either plug in to the power source or you can decline: it’s your call. And the source is demonstrating this now. Here’s what I mean…
The North Node symbolizes your way forward, upward, onward. It’s all about what you are capable of, ready for and so it’s often called the destiny marker in astrology. But how well the facts of matters match up to an individual’s sense of confidence is another matter indeed. The ‘Sky Calendar’ shows the way from a vantage point we simply don’t regularly have down here on the muddy or brambly path. We are often, consciously or not, asserting blind faith mixed with the haunt of guilt we would feel if we gave up as we move through our days, weeks and months.
Jupiter can be a tricky energy to grasp. Some of its archetypes are fabulous: the benevolent king, the party god, santa claus. And this is because we instinctively know that we should feed/give attention to perceived ‘good energy’ rather than ‘bad’. But before our collective mind knew about Neptune, we gave rulership of Pisces to Jupiter. As we have noted, Pisces has no bounds and while that is profoundly important in grasping that we are All One and applying the Golden Rule, it can be a bit tricky whilst navigating our microcosm.
Of course we are nearly broke, but the January sales are on! We’ve got so much left over scrumptious food and drink to still get through! Mercury doesn’t station direct ’til the 25th, so what’s the point! For a lot of readers here, it’s grey and cold and we want to hibernate. Perhaps we have health/work/career plans and resolutions but we (or the others) just cannot muster the will or the way to take the first steps to implement them. Even more unfair, some who are blessedly unaffected by the lack of sunlight have quite enthusiastically marched forth on their personal missions only to hit a brick wall of sorts.
So here’s the point I am trying to make: Roll with it. Flow with it. Tread the proverbial waters – yes, of course, we must – yet at every opportunity, roll over and float face up, inflating your lungs with fresh oxygen. Foster and nurture your goal/s by spending time thinking on it, scribbling notes and diagrams, imagining and planning around potential obstacles. Consider all the others you must or might choose to involve in making it real and assess the effectiveness of your message about WHY they should co-create with you. Check your motivations (this can be a biggie). See Time in its proper Space. Do not waste precious energy on fretting and pacing and complaining. Here is why…
We are in Saturn square Neptune season, where land meets sea and that makes mud. Did you know that mud is a natural cleansing agent?
Mars is in Scorpio, region of the deep and still. Your Being’s life-force put to the tasks in this arena will yield the most fruitful results. For more about Mars, click here.
Our first new moon of 2016 is in Capricorn…and in this zone of your life-themes we also have the Sun, Pluto and Mercury. Hello! Yes, yes: it IS time to lay the foundations for what we believe we want. The Sun represents our unique creative gifts and talents, the inner child at play, our desire to provide and protect; Pluto is all the about the process of transforming the ways we perceive our power (think caterpillar to butterfly…its a pretty tight squeeze at certain points from A to B, but we all want to see that butterfly! And the payoff is that now that caterpillar is going places it could only dream of before, verily that it could not even fathom before); Mercury represents our thinking, our acquisition and application of all sorts of data from the macro and the micro world – and in retrograde, we probably need to ruminate on what we have stockpiled and check in with others we respect for their feedback and input.
You know, you cannot see a new moon. It’s there, but not visible. Its REAL but only if you have faith in the science that tells you why you can’t see it. When a farmer plants a seed, he covers it up. Seeds have proven a gazillion times over that they must be given time to germinate or you can forget about a harvest. Saturn and Venus are telling us to respect what we have learned and what we are currently capable of learning and work with it. The times, they are a-changing but we can still count on certain truths.
And so to wrap it up… Jupiter recently held hands with the North Node and then stepped back. Just a bit, mind you and the NN isn’t shy; it’s following. This makes me think about the grace inherent in the universe. By this I mean that, even when you feel incapable of pro-action, unable to get up from the sofa, uncomfortable or unsure about how to form necessary partnerships, what the hell your first step should be or how long ‘til you’ll see a little green shoot in the dirt, you CAN know this: you are certainly on your way. You just need to remember that THE way is not necessarily your ego’s way. Ego is primal and for good reason but what separates us from less conscious beings is the ability to understand that things are happening at a pace we only have partial control over at certain stages for our own best good. We get that totally, we just need reminders from time to time and there is nothing wrong with that. And what might really blow your mind if you think about it is this: if it weren’t for Jupiter (and Mercury) taking a step back, can you imagine the havoc we might wreak in our journey? If it weren’t for Venus tempering the feel of Saturn, if not for Mars entering a time of boundaries and enforced focus…for myself and the individuals I work with, I just see Grace.
