Jupiter has been retrograde since February 2, 2005 and will
now go direct on June 4, 2005 Hooray!! Those who have any planets or
Ascendant, Midheaven at 8 Libra (opposite 8 Aries) are going to hit
the lottery--figuratively speaking, when it goes direct on June 4,
Talk about loosening the purse strings. The war in Iraq is a
Vietnam quagmire in the making that is continuing to suck and drain
this nation dry on every level, so this Jupiter going direct is going
to give us a dismal dose of reality and that's about it. People are
going to hold on to their money because the world is in Chaos right
now and it isn't going to end soon, especially with Uranus just
having moved into Pisces, the sign of Ultimate Confusion and goes
retrograde eight days later on June 12, 2005. This is what I call
'whiplash' Cosmic style.
Those most affected by this lucky transit were born in the
sign Libra between September 28 through October 2nd, with the
luckiest day being September 30th! By opposite sign, Aries, those
born between March 26 to March 31st, with March 28th the luckiest
day, will benefit greatly as well.
Still, Jupiter is going to help. Call it a crack of light
shining through the darkness. And right now, we can use all the help
we can get. Everyone is going to benefit in business from this
heavenly cornucopia up in our sky. Business people will have a
cautious optimism to celebrate in early June.
In the sky right
now, transiting Jupiter is going direct along with Uranus going
retrograde eight days later. This is a volatile aspect, so
free-spending Jupiter in a personal chart in June indicates you go on a
shopping spree or "shop 'til you drop" kind of modus operandi.
Uranus going retrograde in confused Aries, is either going to make
us knee-jerk and hold on tighter to our dwindling money or we're
liable to go on a crazy shopping spree we can't afford. Or, at the
very least, our emotions are going to go out of control and we are
going to turn into major drama kings and queens on June 4th.
Jupiter rules a sense of well being, of being ageless, living
forever, being immortal, and people are going to want to PARTY
despite the pall of war hanging over the world. But with Jupiter
going direct on a New Moon at 16 Gemini, it's not going to be a quiet
COSMIC LOTTO WINNERS: LIBRA and ARIES!
Every Libra in the world is going to feel the 'ejection seat
release' on Jupiter turning direct on June 4th--that oughta be a
party in itself. Libra and Aries, I know you have felt like
the weight of the world which has been on your shoulders for months,
is getting horrible to carry. Right now things are really bearing
down. You're feeling the cosmic weight of Jupiter turning
stationary direct. Feeling depressed? Feeling pessimistic? Blue?
Hopeless? No wonder.
Well, buck up Libra and Aries, things are going to turn from
night to day for you real fast on the 4th of June! Get ready to
party, to gallop free, to feel the loads dissolving from your hunched
up, straining shoulders. Come out of the cellar. Walk out into the
bright winter sunlight, face it and absorb the heat of the far away
sun, because new hope, idealism and joy abound within you and around
Those who have had any planets or Ascendant around 8 degrees
(opposite Aries), you are going to be feeling the most RELIEF. You
will feel like someone let you out of prison. All the blocks, the
walls, the hurdles that have been thrown in front of you and stopped
you from any forward motion, are now going to be removed--big time,
so be ready for the gates opening with a huge WHOOSH come June 4,
With Jupiter retrograde, money has been TIGHT to nonexistent.
If you tried to find a job, you didn't. If you tried to get a loan,
you couldn't. If you tried to expand your business, it failed. If
you tried to do any type of expansion on any level, it did not occur.
It couldn't with Jupiter retrograde.
JUPITER GOING DIRECT
This doesn't happen very often, but with this New Moon, Libra's/Aries doors of opportunity are
going to explode open for you--so be aware and take advantage of the
opportunities coming your way.
The moon rules our emotions. Jupiter
rules exaggeration, bounty, a river running wild without any dams,
banks or boundaries. The New Moon releases all the pent up emotions
like a balloon fizzling out of air. This is good because this
Jupiter going direct is tremendously successful for many people who
have been waiting in the wings for many months--even years--and now,
you get your rewards, money, fame and success.
For some, this will be a day of huge emotional breakthroughs
and deeper awareness of themselves. Some will utilize this "aha" as
a positive thing and move toward health. Others will not. It is a
free will choice. The stars impel. They do not compel.
This will be a day of very, very focused, intense emotions
for everyone around the world. How we handle our feelings is up to
us; but it's going to be a boiler out there, folks--so deal with
others carefully and try to extend understanding instead of judgment
THE POSITIVE SIDE OF JUPITER
Let's look at some keywords for Jupiter so we can all
understand what it means for this planet to go direct and shower us
with his incredible, boundless fairy dust that is bound to catalyze
us. Jupiter is:
Generosity--to ourselves as well as others.
Optimistic--no matter how down you've been, no matter how dark it has
been, HOPE is now back in the picture in your mental outlook. Where
once there was pessimism and dark clouds, the sun's rays will poke
through and you will, once again, have that immortal optimism to pump
you up, support you and push you out there once again. And this
time, you will be successful.
Cosmopolitan--no one is more broadminded and lacking prejudice than a
Jupiter person. They are not "little minded" like so many others.
They are world travelers, world-minded, and world-connected as no
other planet. This is understanding at the deepest levels
about our world family connection. And those who have Jupiter at 8
Libra (opposite Aries) will "get it". Jupiter does not see skin
color, religion or country of origin. To Jupiter people, we are all
one. We are all related. And the only way we will survive is with
this cosmopolitan attitude. With the war in Iraq, we are going to
learn that suffering, death and inhumanity affects ALL of us, friend
and foe alike.
THE NEGATIVE SIDE OF JUPITER
Because people are learning about the "light" and "heavy"
energy of every planet and sign, Jupiter does not escape this, and
neither do we. A person who is not enlightened or is here this
lifetime to learn a particular lesson, June may see one of the following
(or more) attributes of a Jupiter gone to the dark side:
Exaggeration--or, outright lying. People who tell "tall tales" but
don't tell you they are telling them. Stretching the truth.
Building empires in the clouds with a sand base. Painting an
ephemeral, optimistic picture with feet of clay. You get the picture.
Pompous--Jupiterians who are smug, arrogant and think they are better
than everyone else are really very little people with shrinking
self-esteem who are truly afraid to be found out. Knowing that, we
can forgive them and not buy into or connect with their belittling
energy. These people like to criticize others, cut them down, bring
them down a peg, or in some way, destroy them because they want to be
like them. But with their lack of solid self-esteem, they never will
Excessive--Yes, in just about every way, including one's waist line
and girth. Obesity strikes, big time. They eat more food, more
wine, more desserts, more of -- well, of everything. Jupiter out of
control means excess. It can also mean over proliferation of cells
and cellular multiplication out of control which spells tumors
(benign as well as malignant).
Judgmental--No one does this better than a Jupiterian person, sadly.
Just because they might have power, position, money or political
gain, doesn't mean they need to treat the rest of us like dirt. But
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO GO 'DIRECT'?
How many of you have met barriers, walls, delays, hurdles,
blocks and stoppage on something you wanted to do since mid-August
of this year and have been stuck in neutra going nowhere?
Well, many of us. The good news is that all this stuff is going to
dissolve on June 4th and the flood gates of opportunity will begin.
With Libra at the helm, it means we are going to sign on the bottom
line, form new relationships--both personal and business-wise.
Teamwork is in the air. Working together for a common goal is coming
together in a blinding rush of energy and intensity.
Decisions that have long been put off, put on the back burner
or delayed for whatever reason, will be MADE--NOW. It doesn't matter
whether it was a court of law, a business opportunity, a new job, a
move to another state or country, it will all start moving--finally,
with Jupiter going direct.
The best way I can put Jupiter retrograde is first picture a
thoroughbred horse with a jockey on it, at the starting gate. With
Jupiter retrograde, no one's gates fly open at the buzzer--they are
all stuck at the starting gate! With Jupiter going direct, the gates
not only fly open, but the thoroughbreds are off and
running--hard--down that oval track. And so will you be, too.
If you've been having a rotten year since February, 2005 and
it hasn't lifted--it will soon--on June 4, 2005. Jupiter is now
going to give all of us who have been staggering under a lot of loads
mentally, emotionally, physically or spiritually, a gift. You are
going to feel better and better with each passing day after June 4th.
Each morning, you'll wake up feeling a little more hope, a little
more optimism until, finally...Spring has just arrived and you're
going to be ready to rock n' roll with a party mode that will even
surprise even the most staid person!
Our sense of humor is going to return! Our dreams and
visions will, once more, start being fulfilled like Santa filling our
socks as they hang on the fireplace mantel. Everyone is going to get
goodies and gifts from this Jupiter going direct. Everyone.
