Jolly Jupiter reminds us that, regardless of whatever else is going on in the world, we are supposed to be enjoying life itself. Jupiter shows us how to have fun, how to take “should” or “shouldn’t” out of the equation and just go for it.
At a universal level this is not an easy Full Moon, firstly because it’s in Scorpio – the Moon’s sign of “fall”, most difficult combination, and secondly because it falls opposite volatile Uranus. Full Moons can be times of craziness (lunacy) in themselves (in any sign) which often relates to matters being at full stretch. Full Moons illuminate or bring a matter full circle.
The sequence of aspects this week playing into the Saturn – Uranus square suggest a lot of change in the air not just for day to day things but also for how life continues to change in fundamental ways with far reaching consequences. But this is why I chose the quote from The Surrender Experiment. Michael Singer’s whole thesis spins around acceptance and engaging fully with whatever life chucks at us, whether we like what is happening or not.
Breaking news astrologically, a copy of the Duke’s birth certificate, in Greek as he was born in Corfu. This made me smile – how very typical of a double Gemini to have two different times of birth and therefore two charts. But more importantly this is fascinating symbolically as the new chart changes the Ascendant to Leo … The synastry between the Duke and the Queen is also strengthened as this new chart shows that their Leo Moons are now in fact only 3 degrees apart.
The Venus – Jupiter sextile is arguably the highlight of the week as these planets in traditional astrology are the two Benefics – bringing joy or blessings in the shape of people or events who are good for us, who benefit us. Jupiter is also the opportunity maker and bringer of luck, sometimes of the 11th hour variety.
