Venus and Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center – Messages, Synchronicities, and Miracles

Today on November 1st Venus entered the sign of Sagittarius for the second time this year. It will make a second conjunction to the Galactic Center (the first was on February 1st) on November 23rd, just after an exact conjunction to the GC by Jupiter on November 19th.

Every year at this time an emphasis is placed on the realms of dead and listening more closely to what emotions and inner guidance are saying. That is ever so relevant now, with strong indications of a spiritual reality making itself known in forms of visions, flashes of the future, intuitive hunches, gut feelings, last-minute saves and miraculous encounters.

The approach of these conjunctions to the GC become even more noticeable mid-November and bring much-needed solace and encouragement to those souls who are downtrodden and riddled with fear as the astrological buildup of Saturn and Pluto continue to intensify on this planet.

Currently Mercury is also Retrograde in Scorpio, since October 31st until November 20th. Communication and cognitive patterns are introspective in nature during this time, drawing attention toward that which would ordinarily be ignored, unseen or glossed over. This is especially pertinent during Mercury’s transit to the Sun on November 11th. Dreams and psychic impressions may become greatly heightened throughout the month.

The two Great Benefics joined together conjunct the Galactic Center on November 24th indicate special blessings, important messages, and possibly divine intervention. Unexpected gifts or sudden breakthroughs may also appear. Leading up to this time pay extra attention to ideas that pop up in daydreams, unusual messengers, signs from nature and the behaviors of animals. Synchronicites abound during this time and will seem to spring up from every direction. There may be loud spiritual warnings that recommend we don’t go a certain direction or guideposts that let us know we are on the right track. There may also be an abundance of strange, so-called coincidences and messages “from the Universe” that are both unique and humorous. Some of you may have already noticed these forces becoming activated. That is another good sign!

The last time Jupiter made a conjunction to the Galactic Center was December 2nd of 2007, shortly after Pluto’s conjunction to the GC. It may have taken all this time to assimilate what was given to us or what was experienced. Jupiter will shift out of Sagittarius and enter Capricorn this year on December 2nd 2019, bringing a new set of gifts, opportunities and expansions that are focused on the earth element instead of fire.

Another conjunction to the GC by the Sun on December 19th is up next, with Mercury making its presence there known during the very fortunate Solar Eclipse on the 25th to the 27th. Although it may not be apparent on the surface, finances and relationships are surrounded by protection and blessings from late November to late December. December could be the month to make an investment, commitment or start a new enterprise.

Great uses the period of time that Venus and Jupiter transit the GC late November include spiritual practices such as prayer, meditation, making offerings and charitable donations, artistic pursuits, poetry, expanding the spiritual knowledge-bank, love rituals, inner and outer journeys to exotic places or realms through study or physical travel.

If you have any personal planets at 27 degrees of Sagittarius or making aspects to it, then you may especially experience these strong currents made by Venus and Jupiter’s aligning with the Galactic Center in the coming weeks.

New Moon in Scorpio 2019

On October 27th, the New Moon at 4 degrees of Scorpio is exactly opposite of Uranus Retrograde in Taurus. Expect the unexpected if you haven’t already been barraged with surprises this weekend! This could be fun, liberating, stressful or a little bit of everything. There is a deep intensity in all undertakings and emotional exchanges. It’s okay to pause for awhile a few deep breaths…even to take a day off from normal routines to assimilate what is occurring could be beneficial. New beginnings now revolve around emotional ties and emotionally charged endeavors.

With Venus, Pallas Athene and Mercury are clustered together in the later degrees of Scorpio,  we are brimming with creative ideas and the urge to break out of old paradigms and limitations whether self-imposed or coming from outside forces. This is very passionate energy that may seek expression with another or through some artistic medium. It may also be directed toward spiritual pursuits.

Mars in Libra forms a square to Saturn which adds to the edginess of this New Moon. Conflicts with authority, elders or family could be issues. For those un-flustered by this influence, the tension between Mars and Saturn may be channeled in more productive ways that help to operate with full awareness and work through obstacles.

Keynotes over the next couple of days include:

  • Emotional and physical purification
  • Themes around giving and receiving
  • Money suddenly going out or coming in
  • Importance of establishing boundaries
  • The deep urge to transform self and environment
  • Need to trust and follow intuitive hunches which are very sharp

The Sabian symbol for this New Moon is
“A Massive Rocky Shore Resist The Pounding Of The Sea”

We are reminded that resistance to change has both positive and negative manifestations. There are those who are shaped by their environment and others who make an impact upon it. Perhaps the best we can do with this period is to seek for stability while the world around us seems to be going crazy. Uranus is the unpredictable element involved and the sweeping changes it brings can help us to break free from ruts.

Jupiter in Capricorn 2019-2020

Jupiter in the late degrees of Sagittarius is drawing closer to the Galactic Center, which will become even more powerful in its influence by mid-November. On December 2nd it will ingress into the sign of Capricorn where it will be transiting for just over a year until December 21st 2020, coinciding with the Solstice.

This long article/short eBook describes in depth the social and political implications of this transit of Jupiter in relation to the South Node, Saturn, Pluto, asteroids Ceres and Pallas, dwarf planet Eris, upcoming eclipses and much more. It also includes major aspects to Jupiter, suggested crystals and flower essences to use during this transit and some fun Jupiter-focused horoscopes through the signs and houses (where your good fortune is found!)

Due to its potent interactions with other planets and celestial bodies, this upcoming transit of Jupiter through Capricorn emphasizes the End of an Epoch and Turning Point to a New Life.

Sovereignty vs Bureaucracy

In today’s world we are met with different obstacles than our distant ancestors dealt with. Instead of foraging for our food, looking up at the stars for guidance and learning how to read weather signs we have become increasingly divorced from nature, at the mercy of tightly organized programs and structures. They are supposedly designed for our safety but keep us in slavery.

The sum total of these structures is called bureaucracy. It involves all the internet passwords, piles of paperwork, legal requirements and other red tape targeted at and wrapped around our very consciousness – ultimately to confuse and control us on deeply intrinsic levels.

Reclaim the power of choice that is your birth right. This is the power to choose where to place your focus and what is allowed to permeate your mental and emotional space. It does not necessarily come easily and in most cases must be earned, fought for and defended. But it is your right nonetheless. It is your sovereignty as a being of nature, and of the Divine.

Full Moon in Aries: A Spiritual Battleground

The moon is full at 20 degrees of Aries on October 13th. This is one hell of a fiery, No-b.s. influence, kicking things into high gear. There is a spiritual quality to this Full Moon that is so subtle some may completely miss it. Those who notice have entered what may be termed the cusp of a cosmic rebirth. It involves a call deeper into our souls to access the whole truth of who and what we are, what we value, what we stand for, as well as what we would defend with our very lives.

There are those who support spiritual truth and authenticity and those who would fight against it and try to tear it and us down. Those who would oppose the righteous use their ignorance against them, so it would behoove such folks to recognize that tolerance, like ignorance, is not bliss but the cause of terrible suffering. Sadly, the blind lead the blind, and the ignorant perpetuate their ignorance far and wide until some random trouble-maker, like a bolt of lightning shakes the status quo of stupidity and meaningless violence. If you are sick and tired of lies do not tolerate them. If you despise crime, then expose it. Do not tolerate abuse. Do not tolerate evil in this world. What good does tolerance in this instance do? To inform ourselves and others in compassionate ways is one way to show love and take responsibility for what is being created in our lives.

The Sabian symbol for this moon is “A pugilist enters the ring”. Leading up to this weekend fires have raged (they literally have in California) and battles have been initiated. The Arian warrior theme is full on and aggression is more than just an undertone, it’s a blatant overtone. Every undertaking has had extra force, even urgency behind it. Impatience is at an all-time peak. Remember to breathe. There is so much potency in every thought that it would amaze us to know the extent of the power that just one can wield. Meditation can help to purify the thoughts that do run amok in our minds and so direct them more carefully. Desire and willpower combine in strength and therefore goals stand a much greater chance of being fulfilled than usual. This can be hugely positive or negative depending on who is willing what into manifestation.

The Moon forms an exact square to Pluto and also to Saturn which is 14 degrees of Capricorn. The tension is real. There is some previously hidden business coming to light, and words that long went unspoken now being unleashed. But be careful for those who seem to be seething inside. They are like volcanos who could be ready to explode at any moment, most likely when it is least expected. Mercury in Scorpio goes Retrograde on October 31st but has already entered the pre-shadow phase. Many people are less likely to hold their tongues and what they have to say will be deep and impactful.

The Moon’s opposition involves the Sun in relationship-oriented Libra. It would do well to choose wisely how to engage with others or whether or not they should even be part of the picture anymore. It could be that some ties must be severed because they have become infested for both parties.

Aries’ ruling planet Mars is inconjunct Uranus in Taurus. Nobody wants to take advice or a back seat. Fewer will be willing to wait around for someone else’s help during this period so they are more likely to help themselves. In some cases that is perfect and just what’s needed.

An exact trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius is the precious saving grace, expanding both perceptions and possibilities where none were visible before. This is the time to trust your own instincts above all. They may have been creeping up as those odd hunches you have about so-and-so next door or maybe as the solution to a problem that’s been tumbling around in the back of you head for several weeks. Your intuition may steer you clear of danger or guide you to the situation you have been hoping for. You gotta do what you gotta do, and chances are you’ll do a better job than you or anyone thought you would.
