JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS – JUPITER IN PISCES: JUPITER’S MYSTICAL RULERSHIPS

JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS

GET YOUR OWN READING!

Jupiter when placed in the Signs of its rulership, Sagittarius or Pisces, is operating in the same Mutable mode but being in a different Element, it expresses differently.

 

JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS

In Sagittarius, Jupiter expands Gnosis, expands our mind to open and reach out towards wisdom, through the acceptance and acknowledgment of the multiple and different forms and ideas in the material world.

Here Jupiter calls us on a quest for self-discovery, a broadening of our mind and our horizons, with an accumulation of real life experiences through travelling, studying or reading.


The process of expansion is external and is lived as an outlet for the fiery passion of the sign to live life at its fullest.


Travel and enjoy life, embrace new cultures, explore new opportunities, learn more and more, adopt a philosophy or a religious system.

All are possible ways to expand Gnosis, knowledge and yourself. Jupiter here becomes passionate and acts in good faith. A faith in Life.

The person with Jupiter here in the natal chart, may have deep ethics, religious views or be a real cosmopolitan, with a passionate warm nature, optimistic, generous and over enthusiastic.

Jupiter in Sagittarius, on his unskilled side or if the planet is making many hard aspects in the native’s natal chart, may give a tendency to the person to wander unceasingly without rooting somewhere, and to accumulate an excess of experiences for the sake of experiences only, without judging if they are ethical or expedient.

Jupiter here may be William Blake, the painter, saying:


“The path of excess leads to the tower of wisdom”


 

JUPITER IN PISCES

In Pisces Jupiter evolves and sustains Belief, expands the sub-conscious, and reaches out towards universal energy and acceptance of the transient nature of reality.

Here Jupiter calls us on a quest for self-discovery through the broadening of the faculty of empathy, that bestows understanding, compassion for others, and elevates the psyche to higher vibrations.


The process of expansion is internal. 

It is not outright visible, but many times hidden or mystical and is lived as an outlet for the psychological need of the Sign of Pisces to be Inspired.


The person with Jupiter here in the natal chart, may be a deeply religious person, a pious one, or a spiritual guru, or someone who has a strong faith in man’s inherent ability to love truly and devoutly. 

Jupiter here may be William Blake, the mystical poet, saying:


“If the doors of perception were cleansed

everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.”

“If a thing loves, it is infinite.”


Jupiter in Pisces on his unskilled side, or if the planet is making many hard aspects in the native’s natal chart, may give a tendency to the person to easily believe and be beguiled, may give excessive daydreaming, escapism or to make a person over-react towards the need of others.

 

THE POET AND PAINTER, WILLIAM BLAKE

William Blake (November 28, 1757 – August 12, 1827) was one of the most important English poets and also painter, engraver, illustrator, mystic and visionary. It is often referred to as the “Prophet” of English literature and is among the major poets of world literature.

P.S. Interestingly enough William Blake has Jupiter in Sagittarius!

A beautiful, inspiring and empowering New Moon in Scorpio takes place on November the 7th.

The New Moon is the time when the Sun and the Moon come together at the same area of the sky as they cycle the celestial dome and their meeting marks a reset in the ever-changing influx of the lunar and solar energies.

What we intuitively need (the Moon), is now made conscious, and we can use our creative energy (the Sun), to initiate, make a new start or to refresh actions or relationships.

 

New Moon in Scorpio

When the Sun is in Scorpio our will is strengthened, desires are deep and everything takes on an existential quality. All issues are approached with a “matter of life and death” attitude. They are important, because we ourselves feel important and we can display intensity of will.

The Moon in Scorpio is intense emotions, buried emotions, taboo emotions. It is supercharged psychological intensity, urges of the psyche powerful enough to transform.

The lunar emotional depth when combined with the solar strong will, make every New Moon in Scorpio a potential powerhouse of renewed emotional stamina.


Each New Moon in Scorpio is sheer determination to go after our desires and it may act as a boost for transformation in the area of life denoted by the house in which it falls on our personal horoscope.


These qualities make this specific New Moon in Scorpio on November the 7th to be exactly what we need after the three difficult moons that have preceded it.

At last, after a period when we had to cope with difficult emotions and sudden changes, we can now regain our power and renew our emotional strength.

The power surge that this lunation gives, is amplified by the fact that the Sun and the Moon are not only in Scorpio but also in a sextile aspect to Pluto, the Sign’s ruler and so ruler of this New Moon.

The sextile of Sun to Pluto brings opportunities for empowerment on personal and professional level.

It is an aspect that means that we now can fulfill desires with little effort or that we can join our power with that of persons of authority or financial status and to achieve more. We are focused, determined and concentrated and there is no need to force or manipulate matters or persons.

At the same time the Moon is in a sextile aspect to Pluto. Any intense feelings of the previous period were a necessary cleaning of the dark places of the soul. And though this may have been a painful or exhausting process, it made the necessary room for us, and we can now again feel how strong we can be.

We have emotional control and we are again able to share deeply and intensely, no more being recipients of emotional blackmail or feeling vulnerable, but ready to trust again.

The New Moon is also in a trine aspect to the planet Neptune in the Sign of Pisces.

This aspect makes us creative, feels us with inspiration and make us easily sense the ambient vibes. It can work marvels in our relationships. Now we are in touch with our most spiritual and we care for what is cherished in our hearts. We see the other’s point of view, we walk in their shoes and we can comfort or show that we really understand.


This New Moon in Scorpio is acute perceptiveness that brings renewed spiritual connection (Neptune in Pisces) and regained psychological empowerment (Pluto in Capricorn).

It makes us ponder deeply on those issues relating to the area of life that it falls on our personal horoscope, brings intuitive understanding, makes us feel empowered and helps with closure of the past and moving on to new territory.


NEW MOON IN SCORPIO NOVEMBER 2018

Why is that?

Why this New Moon has such an ending quality and at the same time is a new beginning?

Why this New Moon works as a closure or as the final paragraph before moving on to the next chapter?

If we examine the chart of the New Moon we see that Jupiter, Uranus and the Nodal Axis are all situated at 29th degree. This degree in astrology is one of the critical degrees and is usually connected with endings.

 

The Critical Anaretic Degrees

In the chart of this New Moon, Jupiter is about to move from Scorpio into Sagittarius.

It is now time to move on from the truth of the soul to the truth of the world, expanding outwardly and not inwardly, but before doing so we have to face for one last time our deepest emotions, out very truth.

At the same time Uranus, as it moves retrograde, is on the 29th last degree of Aries Sign. Issues relating to how we can embrace freedom and individuality without being self-centered and disruptive to our relations are again of concern.

In addition to that, Venus is separating from an opposition to Uranus, an aspect that was exact one week before the New Moon, and that has created tensions, or to some of us considerations to ending relations or to others even actual break-ups.

The Lunar Nodes are also at 29°57’, critical degrees, as they have just entered into the Capricorn – Cancer axis something that denotes a shifting of energy that will bring the emphasis on a totally new area of life (chapter) for our personal horoscope for the next 1.5 years.

 

Chiron

This repetition of the 29th degrees gives this ending quality to this New Moon.

Accompanying this feeling, Chiron the wounded healer is at 28° 20’ of Pisces.

From there it makes a trine aspect to Jupiter and a sextile and trine aspect to the Lunar Nodes, infusing the lunation with healing energy.

Jupiter is also trine – sextile to the Nodes while Uranus is in a tight square to them at the same time. The one planet bringing sudden changes, the other bringing advancement and luck.

We can now see how the evolutionary path of the Nodes will lead to a new chapter.

Inevitable change and disruption of our security was necessary before us moving into to a whole new territory that has a promise of optimism and expansion. The new will come after having first made closure with the past. This is a necessary process for us, and we have to move on either with our relations re-invigorated or with a new version of our empowered self.

 

Epilogue

This New Moon in Scorpio inspires and moves us within higher frequencies of spiritual rebirth. It is either a renewal of the value that we receive from others or a renewal of our own self.

Negative Expression

  1. We want to be better than the rest and it hurt us when this is not the case.
  2. We are conceited and all our actions aim solely at self-confirmation.
  3. We do not believe in ourselves and we feel inadequate in regards to expressing our sexuality and healthy egoism.

Positive Expression

  1. We feel and know that we do not have to compare ourselves with others.
  2. We forgive ourselves if in the past we did not believe so much in us and we move forward having love for ourselves and awareness of our value.
  3. Loving ourselves in the right way, does not make us conceited, but instead allows us to be well within in moments of still and solitude. It gives us the power to heal our own wounds and to be an example and an inspiration for others.

Mercury in Pisces

MERCURY IN PISCES – YOUR MIND IS A FRACTAL OF THE UNIVERSE

Mercury in Pisces

GET YOUR OWN READING!

Mercury in Pisces becomes a planet that expresses with the Sign’s intuition, empathy and sensitivity. Thinking and reasoning is less analytical and detached and becomes more subjective (feminine polarity) and abstract (less rational – water element)

Perception modified by Pisces can easily understand something in its wholeness (water element) and in its essence (water element) and not as a sum of its parts. Mercury in Pisces can easily understand concepts but may fail to understand the simplest of things. Absent mindedness due to travelling of the mind is also a trait. (water element).

The mind has the ability to see both sides of a situation –this duality is in the symbol of the two Pisces, being receptive (feminine polarity and water) and easily tuned with the ambient environment or the other’s viewpoint (symbol and mutable water). Views may be easily adopted (water element) without critical process due to the impressionable nature of the Sign. On the other hand this “walking in other’s shoes” ability (mutable quality) gives emotional Intelligence to the Piscean mode of thought and makes the individual easily trusted by (Jupiter tone) and inspiring to others (Neptune tone).

Imagination (Neptune and water) flourishes when Mercury is in Pisces. The mind converts emotions to ideals, words to pictures, feelings to words and synthesizes artistically (Mercury operating in a mutable environment). There isn’t a logical conversion process. Pisces just knows without necessarily knowing how it knows.

A proneness to excessive day-dreaming (Neptune and water) or deceiving others through elaborate lies (Unskilled Mercury and Neptune) or oneself with delusions (Neptune) may also exist if the planet is unskillfully expressed.

Ideals, spiritual notions, higher knowledge, philosophy or belief systems (Jupiter), fertile ideas and creativity may be easily comprehended, adopted (water and feminine polarity) or communicated from Mercury in Pisces, inspired by Jupiter, the Sign’s ruler.

EXPRESSIONS OF MERCURY IN PISCES

All these are the expressions of Mercury when the planet resides in the Sign of Pisces.

  • ability for Synthesis (mutable quality)
  • an understanding of the abstract (less rational – water element)
  • a mind tuned to psychic vibes and energy (water element)
  • harboring of romantic ideals (water element)
  • romanticism and escapism (water element)
  • exchange of emotions through words (Mercury in water element)
  • realization and rationalization of the afterlife (Mercury in Mutable water)
  • metaphysical and philosophical teaching, (Mercury with Jupiter and Neptune color from the Sign’s rulers).

Mercury may be in its fall in Pisces but this fall is not necessarily a bad thing.Mercury in Pisces is in a place where the “Mind” becomes “Nous” and is connected with the Universal Mind. Cognition and logical functions operate in a different level.  Mercury is not exchanging information it just absorbs the information vibes without categorizing.

All of the information exists within the smallest tiny part of the Universe. Instead of finding it we simply need to FEEL IT.

With Mercury in Pisces your mind is a fractal of the Universe.

New Moon Astrology

THE SYMBOLIC NEW MOON

New Moon Cosmos of Astrology

New Moon is the first phase of the Moon in its orbit around the Earth. It’s a phase that marks the beginning of a new synodic cycle between the Sun and the Moon.

What happens when we have a New Moon is that as the Moon rotates it comes full circle, once again, to the same degree that the Sun is on the ecliptic, and as it passes between the Earth and the Sun, it becomes invisible.

The Sun in astrology symbolizes our very existence, our cognition, our self – expression. The Moon is symbolic of our feelings, our psyche, our intuition and the subconscious. While this first phase lasts the Moon is united with the Sun and has stopped for a while to reflect its light.

It is now dark and unseen in the night sky.

It is at this moment that we also stop for a while to start listening to our inner world. We consciously and psychologically turn within, and as our self-expression tunes with our intuition, this becomes the perfect alignment. It is now the proper time when we can set new goals, renew aspirations, chase dreams and decide on how to act or react.

This may also be a time when we feel renewed, full of energy and vitality.

It is now when the processes that have started with the previous New Moon, which occurred about 29 days ago, have reached their final stage and are now either completed or transforming, giving their place to new ones that are beginning now.

It is the same cycle starting again and again, but as T.S. Eliot have said, we may again find ourselves where we started, but now we are seeing with “new” eyes because we carry within us the experience of the previous cycle.


We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. T. S. Eliot – “Little Gidding”


Right in the middle of the previous cycle, at the time of the Full Moon about 14 days ago, our actions reached a climax, we evaluated and assessed where we stood and we then gradually assimilated the results, as the Moon waxing, approached again towards the Sun and led up to this New Moon.

New Moon-Cosmos of Astrology

The perpetual cycle starts again.

But every new conjunction between the Sun and the Moon, occurs in a different degree and within a different zodiac sign throughout the year.

The aspects that the other planets are making with the two Lights at the time of the New Moon are also different.

This makes each New Moon a unique event for each one of us as it falls on our natal chart and makes aspects with our natal planets.

Even if you do not have planets in the sign of the New Moon for a given month, the New Moon’s energy emphasizes certain areas of your lives which the astrologer can analyse especially for You.


Find out where the New Moon falls in your chart

and embrace its promise for renewal.

ASTROLOGY HOUSE SYSTEMS – WHY SO MANY?

Astrology House Systems vary. Anyone who has studied Astrology or has been seriously involved in chart interpretation has found that there are more that one ways to divide the natal chart into the 12 houses. A list of the most used Astrology House systems would include the following:

 

  • Placidus
  • Whole SignAstrology Houses
  • Equal Houses
  • Koch
  • Regiomontanus
  • Morinus
  • Alcabitius
  • Campanus
  • Porphyry
  • Topocentric
  • Meridian
  • Vehlow

Why so many?

What are their differences?

How did this come to happen and which is the correct system to use?


Such are the questions that a student of Astrology is having when is first presented with this variety.

The answer to the first question is that these systems are just different calculation methods on how to divide the space between the angles of the horoscope and they mainly differ in the mathematical formulas used. BUT NEARLY ALL OF THEM CALCULATE  THE SAME MC AND ASCENDANT and therefore the angles, the most sensitive points of the horoscope remain unchanged. Read this excellent article from astro.com where each house system is explained in details.

So how did this happen and is there a correct Αstrology house system?

Astrology is probably the most ancient system that tried to explain the cosmos and give meaning to the human existence under the stars. The first astrological references are found upon Sumerian clay tablets referring to events from around 2300 BC, tablets which are themselves the very first samples of human writing. In the course of time Astrology evolved, mutated and adapted to each cultural setting. This is a process that all ideas and conceptual systems follow, whether scientific, religious or philosophical.

Houses and the way they are calculated changed and evolved through the years, with astrologers today using various different systems. The several house systems are in fact different methods on how to calculate the house divisions and distribute them equally or unequally upon the ecliptic. Some astrologers stick to one system while others may try to experiment. Human nature always tries to test and to perfect all applied methodology and astrology is scientific in this respect to say the least.

The various Astrology House Systems may vary on the calculations used, but most of them are identical as to where the ASC and MC are placed, since these two important points are calculated from the birth place's longitude and latitude. Houses simply fall in-between these points, forming 12 divisions, areas, through which the zodiac constellations move gradually during the course of day and night.

Each of the different systems, tries to depict a more accurate or more astronomical correct depiction of the 12 constellations' movement through the day, and in different latitudes, and that's exactly where the differ,  on how each one splits the houses division in-between the angular points of the chart (ASC, MC, DESC, IC).

Some systems have had their time and fell out of use with the advance of newer ones. Schools of thought or attempts to adjust and fine tune calculations, appeared and were tested. Nothing is static in human expression and with a large body of Astrological works from Hellenistic period being translated in our time, revival and testing of older systems has started to occur.

WHAT IS OF IMPORTANCE?

The houses symbolism may have changed through the years but in the same time they remain constant in their core semantics. Houses are not strict divisions, they are more like areas of the energy of the horoscope and practice and experience has shown that they work, each system revealing a different layer of the same chart.

I am moving house, yes but... regardless of the house system, Astrology works!

Astrology is a language and regardless of the house methodology used, the divine always finds a way to speak to us through the archetypal symbolism of our beloved art.

The question is... Can you read?
