Insights and news about astrology and tarot
So the huge Jupiter – Neptune conjunction is upon us, and the astrological news is full of words like psychic, magic and miracles. Well, bring it on, and am certainly not saying that these things are not possible, but why are these words so linked with this conjunction/sign, and what can we really expect to see with such a rare event dominating our skies?
Symbolically the Jupiter – Neptune conjunction speaks mostly of our emotional world. Everything from grief and floods of tears to huge romance for those falling in love right now. Also look out for the archetypes of the Rescuer, the Martyr or the Victim, clock if you’re playing either of those roles or if anyone else close to you is. Think very carefully about what you might be giving up at the moment too, such as sacrificing personal wishes or dreams to keep the peace. Recipes for resentment need to come off the menu. But Big Dreams get a huge tick.
I’d normally be waxing lyrical about the Aries New Moon, a kind of extension of the Spring Equinox spring fever, but I think it has to be said that Chiron in the mix is an added complication even though it can swing either way. The Wounded Healer can, for example, bring health issues to light or it can bring the healer…. but Mercury also in this lineup is good news (the Winged Messenger) and worth considering in his own right.
So if you’re going through any kind of transition this is a big week. We had the Spring Equinox yesterday (so the Sun has also just cleared Scheat), the theme of starting from scratch is already making itself felt and there’s a sense of Mercury underlining that this week. Get back to the drawing board with projects or problems or anything that’s important for you.
So symbolically the Spring Equinox is the moment when the Sun enters his sign of “exaltation” (best placing), Aries being the first sign of the zodiac and the official beginning of the astrological New Year. It’s fabulous for individuation – in other words, anything that gets you back to you, anything that reconnects you with your sense of self, a healthy ego state, positive self esteem and a sense of entitlement.
