Hi everyone I hope you’ve been enjoying the Christmas break and that you’ll be able to usher in 2024 in the way that is right for you. I’ve always loved NYE, I think it’s the eternal optimist in my Sag nature that loves fresh diary pages waiting to be filled, but I haven’t decided about tomorrow evening as yet. I may join the party, I may stay home. I like the idea of not putting myself under pressure on that one!
Either way, whatever we do on the evening, we’re celebrating the fact that Jupiter is turning direct and in fact makes the exact switch from retrograde to direct in the early hours of tomorrow morning. As Jupiter is always retrograde for 4 months at a time it’s always a big deal when he turns direct again, back to the Jupiterian business of things like revealing opportunity or showing us what he’s been quietly up to since the end of August. Even if you don’t usually make New Year resolutions this is a fantastic time for doing so.
Jupiter rules anything related to the higher mind, such as learning about esoteric subjects, and anything and anyone related to overseas. So any business connected to foreign lands, long distance travel and making holiday plans are going to be big concerns for January and I’ll be putting out the flight and accommodation info soon for Summer School, our 23rd season.
Jupiter also rules publishing and I have a new book due out in August which I’ll be talking more about when I’m given the green light from the publishers to preview it. I also think that Jupiter is very linked to social media. Mercury may be our words, what we say and think and write, but Mr Big Jupiter is how we reach and connect with a wide or even international audience.
IN YOUR OWN HOROSCOPE
This time Jupiter turns around at 5 Taurus so it’s worth locating where that degree sits in your own horoscope, especially as this has been a very sensitive degree throughout 2023 so this is something of a finale coming up.
For me Jupiter turns smack opposite my Neptune at 5 Scorpio and I’ve noticed many times that activity on my Neptune often links to my work. At the moment it’s showing as getting excited about using Instagram again and my resolution is to do short daily posts which I’ve already started as of a couple of weeks ago.
It’s been pointed out to me that not everyone is familiar with how Instagram works. It’s changed a lot since I first used it pre pandemic. I now use it from my desktop, which means loading a photo of your choice first and then adding text on the next page. So on any Instagram account you simply click on the photos to reveal the accompanying text.
You can now follow me on Instagram for free daily astrology posts –
You’ll also find these posts on my Facebook group The World of Astrology – https://www.facebook.com/groups/131108987086161
I’m on a mission to get this group back to being interactive, instead of being one large boring advertising board. As I replied to one reader yesterday, who wanted to know how an aspect affected him personally –
Astrology doesn’t actually “affect” us, it reflects back to us what is happening. Whatever the astrological event, you need to locate it in your own chart and fit it to your story. It’s never one size fits all, so there is no one single answer to your question. These daily posts are designed to show you the astrology of the moment and are not predictions just for individuals – they’re about learning how astrology really works, which was the original point of this group!
THE WEEKLY BLOG – YEAR AHEAD 2024
HOW TO SUBSCRIBE
I’ll be talking more about the Jupiter finale and why this is a sensitive degree in next week’s blog, the first one of the New Year. If you’ve been thinking about subscribing this is a good time to start because I’m going to start 2024 not just with the current astrology but also with an overview of the year ahead. You’ll find all the dates for things like planets turning retrograde or direct, New and Full Moons, and Eclipses.
The average word count of the weekly blog is 3.5k so this week’s will probably be more like 4.5k or more depending on how carried away I get under a SD Jupiter!
Subscription fees are staying the same and are designed to be affordable for everyone –
- Monthly subscription of £5.95 – or £1.37 a week
- Annual subscription £57.00 – or £1.09 a week
