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!

Full Moon in Pisces 26 August 2018

FULL MOON IN PISCES – 26 AUGUST 2018: True to You

Full Moon in Pisces 26 August 2018


The Full Moon takes place at 03°and 12’ of the Sign of Pisces. It strongly affects Pisces and Virgo Signs and also Gemini and Sagittarius Signs which are born in the first decan, as well as those having personal planets, points or their Ascendant, near the 01° -05° degrees of the Mutable Cross. The energy of this Full Moon in Pisces is also channeled to the Earth Signs and affects Taurus and Capricorn Signs born near the first days.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

A beneficial full moon takes place on August the 26th.

It is a full moon that soothes us after the difficult eclipses that have preceded it, refreshing our psychic reserves. It presents an ideal opportunity for us to be inspired and to be practical at the same time, setting the bases that will assist us in the next period.

The Moon is in the dreamy and psychic Sign of Pisces and brings to the fore emotions of romantic nostalgia. The soul asks for a fleeing away from the desert of the real, feelings are fluid and the dream of escaping or the need for the osmosis with the transcendental, swell within us.

Opposite, the Sun in the zodiac Sign of Virgo, grounds illusions and seeks something more practical than the cloudy and vague Piscean landscape. It seems as if the Sun is declaring: “Dreams have a tendency of not coming true”. Yes that is true, at least if dreams remain theoretical and are not accompanied by work, meticulous craftsmanship, attention and emphasis in detail.

This contrast between, us serving a vision without losing our faith on the one hand, and being constantly inspired by the tedious reality and avoiding tendencies to flee in the dream-world on the other, is the theme of every Full Moon in Pisces.

Full Moon in Pisces 26 August 2018

 

With this particular Full Moon on the 26th of August, this balance is easily achieved, since this archetypal contrast, as expressed by the polarity of the Sun and Moon, is the backbone of a very favorable aspect pattern that in astrology is called “Kite”.

Although the chart of this Full Moon in Pisces is actually very complex – since at least four basic aspect patterns can be found within the aspects’ formations, the favorable trines and sextiles that constitute the Kite are dominant making this formation the basic element of our interpretation.

A Grand Trine between the Sun, Saturn and Uranus in the Earth Signs, forms the Kite’s main body.

This trine effortlessly grounds the transcendental idealism of the Moon in Pisces (situated at the tail of the Kite), and sets for us the foundations to materialize our dream in a practical level, as long as we adhere to the following:

We express ourselves by serving (Virgo) our ideal (Pisces), but we do it having complete consciousness (Sun) of what is our personal truth (Uranus), and what is which will make us feel really safe (Sun trine to Uranus in Taurus).

At the same time, we accept, that whichever our own truth is, it entails responsibilities (Saturn).

It is a truth that, in order to serve our dream (Moon in Pisces), should be accompanied by goals (Moon sextile Saturn in Capricorn), allow independent expression (Moon sextile Uranus in Taurus) and most importantly, give us the necessary self-discipline (Sun trine Saturn) to carry out the demands it presents.


An example to illustrate the beneficial effect that this Full Moon can have on a self-discovery level, is that of a married woman who feels the need to escape in a romantic journey with her lover.

The psychological pressure caused by the practical difficulties of making the hidden and craving journey a reality, – since it confronts with the reactions of her husband or of her parents and spoil her dream, is solved, as she faces her own personal truth.

Does she wants to escape just to live an adventure or her personal truth is that she really does not want to be married anymore and the lover is the excuse for the ending her marriage?

Being aware of her truth shows what the next practical steps are.

If it is the first case, means that it would be good for her to accept that all this is just a dream of fleeing and to begin working on her marriage with responsibility and self-discipline, while expressing at the same time her individual nature by claiming her personal space and freedom. (Saturn trine to Uranus as part of the Kite pattern).

If, on the other hand, her truth is the second case, then she must find the self-discipline to communicate how she really feels to spouse and parents and to accept the consequences by divorcing, and fulfilling her dream for a new state of being, free, and responsibly independent.


The above example is of course schematic and in no way encourages anyone to divorce.

It is an example to demonstrate how complex and interrelated processes this Full Moon in Pisces brings. Beginning with the dream and through the formation of the “Kite”, it eventually creates new situations and renews us with responsibility and freedom of action.

This is a Full Moon that is beneficial for all of us, depending on where it falls on our personal horoscope, as it combines,

  • inspiration,
  • vision,
  • a sense of responsibility and
  • awareness of our truth.

Full Moon in Pisces 26 August 2018

In addition to the Kite aspect pattern, the dreamy trine between Jupiter and Neptune and the square aspect between Venus and Pluto, give even more emotional depth to this full moon.

The square aspect between Venus and Pluto will bring to the surface psychological tensions that will eventually prove liberating, as with the trine of Jupiter to Neptune, the very possibility of our dream becoming a reality, will fill our lives us with meaning.

 

This is a strongly emotional Full Moon in Pisces, which combines the elements of Earth and Water in the best possible way.

It is sensitive and dreamy, and still, it is simultaneously the appropriate time for us to work out in a practical manner, our relationships, our partnerships, our aspirations and our dreams.

 

I wish to everyone a fulfilling Full Moon in Pisces.

Pisces New Moon 17 March 2018

PISCES NEW MOON – 17 MARCH 2018: Faith & Conviction

Pisces New Moon 17 March 2018


The New Moon takes place in 26°and 53’of the Sign of Pisces. It strongly affects Virgo and Pisces Signs and also Gemini and Sagittarius Signs which are born towards the end of the third decan, as well as those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 24° -28° degrees of the mutable cross.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

Each New Moon is a beginning. A moment in the cosmic time where the conscious and the unconscious merge together, and this momentary unity becomes the perfect timing for us to align our needs with our will.

This New Moon falls in the Sign of Pisces. Within here, needs are transcendental and “to be” is “to dream”. It is a New Moon that carries themes of ideal love, poetry, compassion, fantasy, martyrdom and sacrifice, all characteristics of the mutable water Sign.

It is a New Moon that wants to answer the dilemma posed by the Full Moon in Virgo that took place in March the 2nd. How we serve the ideal and be practical at the same time?  How we work so as to make the ideal a realization?

At first glance, it seems easy to believe in ideals and to hold on to dreams, as the conjunction of Sun and Moon in Pisces inspires our heart and soul. To be inspired is the first step towards making something true and this New Moon sets in gentle motion, gentle emotions.

At the same time Mars from Sagittarius is in a square aspect to both the Sun and the Moon. Let’s ponder for a moment…

Do we rush to realize what we want? Are we competing ourselves or others undeservedly? Or is it maybe that we feel that we have to spontaneously act (Mars in Sagittarius) instead of passively listening to our intuitive inner voice (Moon in Pisces)?

Pisces New Moon

Chiron close by the two Lights at 28°, is emphasizing on the martyred Piscean motive but its influence is one of healing for ourselves and significant others.

Chiron may work miracles as an instrument of healing by us expressing through art, or by letting our senses absorb art, poetry and music. More importantly, healing comes by showing to others our intensely felt compassion. All these are qualities that may very easily manifest in our psyche under this Piscean New Moon.

There is a reason why we are feeling the influence of Chiron in a positive manner, though Chiron makes a hard aspect to Mars.

The square aspect uncovers our insecurity and may bring a remembrance of inadequacy. This disillusioning may result in a temporary lack of our conviction. But as this is a separating aspect, with Mars moving away from the Centaur, so the whole Mars influence is lessened to quite an extent.

At the same time, Jupiter in its retrograde motion through the Sign of Scorpio, is approaching the Lunation and the Centaur, making a trine aspect to all three bodies and in this way it amplifies Chiron’s healing qualities.

The combined result of all these aspects taken together, is that as the Lunation dream begins to manifest, as our hopes begin to arise, as we feel inspired and compassionate, some feelings of restlessness, a sense of us not being able to cope with the situation may appear.

Jupiter in its retrograde motion makes us reconsider our core values and questions our ethical stance.

But Jupiter the great benefic brings us wisdom in the guise of a warning.

Only by delving deep into our incentives (Jupiter in Scorpio retrograde) and by remaining true to our ideal, it is that we will surpass any inadequacies and then the inflow of generous feelings will inspire us to move on.


So this New Moon may not be as dreamy as it seems at first glance. It has a quality of testing the truth within us and strengthening our conviction. 

This Piscean lunation does not bring the “dream” into reality.

What it does is that it plants a seed of faith in our hearts and along with this faith it requires our patience.

It sets in motion a healing process and makes us strong.


This is the gift of this Pisces New Moon and it is a practical gift, in the sense that it starts a cycle of renewed faith, that will accompany us during the difficult period that the next Full Moon in Libra brings.

Full Moon in Virgo

FULL MOON IN VIRGO – 2 MARCH 2018: Serving the Ideal

Full Moon in Virgo


The Full Moon takes place at 11° 22’ of the Sign of Virgo. It strongly affects Virgo and Pisces Signs and also Gemini and Sagittarius Signs, which are born near the end of the 1st decan or near the start of the 2nd decan, as well as those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the degrees 9°- 13° of the mutable cross.


GET YOUR OWN READING!

The full moon at Virgo takes place on the night of March the 1st, with the two Lights in full opposition at 00:51 into March the 2nd.

If we take a glance on the chart of the Full Moon, the first thing that impresses us is that the Moon stands on her own within the Sign of Virgo.

A Virgo Moon is a Moon that makes us want to analyze how we feel. Sentiments pass through the sieve, everything is categorized and scrutinized. Every need is rationalized and analyzed. We do this, not in an attempt to deny and distance ourselves from our emotions, but instead in an attempt to find out, how what is that we feel, can also serve us on a practical level.

This is the modus operandi of the Moon in the Sign of Virgo. She is a woman in the loom that her need for warmth makes her act by weaving meticulously a layer to cover the bare floor.

Opposite the Moon, within the infinite vastness of the Sign of Pisces, Sun and Neptune are in conjunction. The ultimate ideal. The methexis of existence with the Dionysian element. Dream and creativity, imagination and drunkenness, idealization and transcendence of the Ego. Excessive idealism and deceptive feelings or illusions, tendencies to flee reality.

This very contrast between the earthly and the spiritual, between serving the reality and escaping from it, is what this Full Moon brings into the foreground.

A contrast that is even more pronounced with this Full Moon, since, beside the Sun and Neptune in the Sign of Pisces, two more planets, Mercury and Aphrodite and the Centaur Chiron, are there also.

Mercury from Pisces has an important astrological role in this Full Moon since it rules the Moon in Virgo and thus directly affecting our emotional response to the lunar energy.

The planet’s close conjunction aspect with Venus and the wider one with Chiron has as affect the transforming of the analytical and meticulous mental categorization of our emotions into a more abstract process. Sentiments reach for the romantic ideal, words are incantations that heal, and we want to express ourselves artistically and creatively.

Jupiter from Scorpio is making a trine aspect to Mercury, Venus, and Chiron, magnifying the transcendent element of the moment and at the same time giving a moral weight to our thoughts and desires.

So, on the one hand, we have our everyday needs, which we are called upon to find the means to cover, and on the other hand we want the unattainable and the ideal. We may be seeking the ideal love or the ideal job. The realization of our own personal vision. We want to communicate and share affection in a relationship without keeping it only in order to cover us on practical issues.

We like to express what it is we like and not only what it is correct. We need to create while working and not to mechanically reproduce details lost in the triviality of everydayness.

This Full Moon awakens intense feelings in us and makes us nervous because it invite us to find the way to serve the ideal.

The “Ideal” love is a love where we learn to serve.

The “Ideal” work does not exist but nonetheless we can work towards our personal vision without depriving ourselves of the means to make a living.

“Dreamlike” relationships do not exist but every proper relationship must have truth, morality and inspire us both mentally and practically.

 

FULL MOON IN VIRGO POSTSCRIPT

The concerns raised by this Full Moon in Virgo are similar to those of an artist trying to reconcile what he conceives as ideal with the very labour and the detailed work that he has to do to transform this ideal into a practical and tangible work of art.

Andrei Tarkovsky writes:

“…art must carry man’s craving for the ideal, must be an expression of his reaching out towards it; that art must give man hope and faith.”

But every great artist, in order to bring the ideal to the real world, has worked hard, meticulously and analytically, and expressed what he felt in a practical and simple way, weaving feelings in the loom of his art, just as this Full Moon in Virgo does.

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.

Full Moon in Pisces

FULL MOON IN PISCES – 6 SEPTEMBER 2017

Full Moon Pisces

The Full Moon in Pisces on September the 6th brings mixed emotions.

Every Full Moon in Pisces asks us to assess whether our need for inspiration, dream, and contact with the unconscious are in tune with the practical and earthly issues that we face in our everyday life, but this Full Moon in particular will confuse more our emotional landscape.

The Moon is in Pisces and our feelings are already attired with the romantic idealism and the hypersensitivity of the sign. Neptune in conjunction with the Moon increases our empathy, our desire for the imaginary, makes us abstract and is opposes the Sun in Virgo. This Virgo Sun seeks purity, analysis and practical thinking, and expresses what we want in our everyday life. All of these, with the Sun-Neptune opposition become inconspicuous and flicker like a mirage in a desert of the real.

What is it that we want and what we ask from our relationships and from others? What exactly do we feel? Is this real true or it is just our idea? Are we really disappointed or do we feel uncomfortably frustrated because of our emotional charge? Is our attitude towards others clear or does it misguide?

Such are the questions brought forth by this Full Moon, but unfortunately the answers do not come.

Full Moon Pisces

Venus on the chart of the lunation cannot express love, relate and feel valuable, but on the contrary remains attached to obsessions that causes her quincunx with Pluto, to the illusions that maintains the quincunx with Neptune and engages in sweet introversion quincunx with the Moon.

Rational thoughts and logic could have helped the situation somehow, but Mercury has just stopped on his retrograde course and is ready to direct without yet being able to put thoughts to speech or to untie mingled emotions.

Mercury’s conjunction with Mars, upon the same degree of the eclipse of  the 21st of August, requires from us more caution in not saying anything hurriedly, not getting aggressive or taking a position that is not easily reversible, misunderstood or can hurt, rather than to act bold and straightforwardly.

The scenery will become clearer in the next few days and the trines that Mars and Mercury make with Uranus and the sextiles with Jupiter will be helpful. Tension will find its release, and we will gradually feel free from people or situations that restrict us, either by re-establishing the structure of our relationships or through completely new opportunities and acquaintances.

In everything that we have described above, any resolutions that we have made while Saturn was retrograde, until his direct motion on August the 25th, will now begin to be gradually applied and be of help.

The final exit of Mercury from its shadow, which happens on September the 19th, will also help us be more decisive and clear in what we communicate.

Until then, let us experience the tension of this full moon with patience, knowing that it is part of a creative process which while confusing initially, it will eventually renew us at a practical level and uplift us with inspiration and spiritual strength.

Venus Retrograde

VENUS RETROGRADE (March 4th – April 15th)

Venus Retrograde

Venus, the planet of Love is going to turn retrograde within the next hours. During her retrograde course Venus will move backwards through Aries and will gradually retreat into the sign of Pisces on April the 3rd, where she will continue her retrogration until April the 16th.

Andy Warhol, in his painting “Details of Renaissance Paintings, Botticelli, Birth of Venus”, is re-visiting Botticelli’s Venus and re-paints her with a pop aesthetics in order to comment on the commercialisation of the ideal of Love, the superficiality of being vain and to make the viewer stop and ponder on the notions of “relating” and “beauty”.

That is exactly what Venus is callings us to do while she will be retrograde. A re-evaluation of our own self-worth, our own internal beauty. We are called to re-assess the expectations we have from others and at the same time to see how it is that we ourselves relate.

During the retrograde movement we turn inwards and we wonder:

  • What is that we want from a relationship and from our partner?
  • Which are the motivations and our deepest desires?
  • Do we want to be in a relationship just only for the sake of not being alone?
  • Is our relationship superficial, pop and "appearances-only", lacking meaningful sharing?
  • Are we appreciated as much as we deserve? Do we return appreciation and value our partner?

The very nature of these questions, whether we are in a relationship or not, concerns first and most to ourselves and while it mainly relates to love relations it also touches, one to one partnerships, business relations and our socialising in general.

The retrograde movement brings Venus backwards and this may mean that a person from the past re-appears. If this is the case, it only happens for a reason. We must “remember” the relationship we have had with this person in the past, what it meant then and what it means now, for our present and for any existing relations or commitments. We are called to redefine this relation with the past person in a clear and karmic – free way.

From April the 3rd when Venus exalted in Pisces will be attired with romanticism, self -sacrifice and utmost idealism, our need to belong will be great and will feel like nostalgia to return to the very ideal of love that has been lost.

All this is a necessary part in a process of introspection that will clear out situations, will make us feel better with ourselves and will prepare us to be more sociable and will revitalise our relationships when Venus will turn direct again.
