Jupiter Direct Station 17AQ10 10.13.09

Before you in black and white, you see a map showing the 1st minute and second of Jupiter's Direct Station 17AQ10 on Oct 13, 2009, 00:34:18 am edt, Washington, DC USA. The precise moment depends, of course, on the exactitude of one's software, which is quite naturally tossed off slightly by Moon Wobbles and other Quirks of the Universe.

How constantly grateful am I not to be even remotely responsible as the one who keeps our solar system's planets in their courses!

There is the grouchy Mars/South Node rising with North Node, the Dragon's Head, conjunct US natal Pluto. The look of the chart is disturbing and I prefer not mentioning it in too fine a detail for now. Perhaps you might study it for yourself and let me know what you decide. For now, let's discuss Jupiter's new condition as of Oct 13 as a planet (seemingly) moving ahead in the zodiac...

So imagine you're in DC (aka, the District of Columbia) during the wee hour of 12:34 am edt on Tuesday, Oct 13, 2009, and the Jolly Giant~Rotund Monk~Major General~Professor-the Banker of Means, performs a symbolic about-face resulting in things of a Jupiterian nature beginning - slowly at first, he's a big'un - to move forward where for months they'd been stalled, delayed, or grudgingly offered.

Well! That may be a wisp of fresh air!

This particular Direct Station of Jupiter closely conjuncts my daughter's natal Mars, so we'll see...perhaps sales will pick up even more in her Etsy Shop of Handspun and Dyed Yarns, or hubby will receive a bounty of some sort. Actually, a Direct Jupiter may benefit a lot of people (in Aquarius, sign of groups. Hey! What about Health Care Reform? Not a novel ideal, but...)

2009 Jupiter conj Neptune 3x = The Speculators, Gamblers, and Spendthrifts Among Us

Yes, hyper-inflation, inflation, and the over-printing of US monies fall under sway of 2009's year-long festival of the Great Conjunction/s of Jupiter and Neptune, a bubbly affair. Increased spirituality? For those receptive, yes. Lovely!

But financially speaking, these big guys are the Speculator Pair when scamming together. Fraud is often a partner when Neptune's deceptive tendencies meld with Jupiter's promises which can turn out to be over-estimations or pie-in-the-sky flights of whimsical fancy - not necessarily or consciously meant to deceive, yet deceive they may.

Jupiter's position at any time indicates where over-optimism may snuggle deep while over-reach creeps into the foundations and cornerstones...the first big wind swoops it all out to sea like a chilly mist over the cape...Neptune's waters are stronger than Saturn's stone or Jupiter's mantra.

Chill with Saturn

To counterbalance an over-abundant Jupiter, we need Saturnian stability and, rein in our exuberance, else it will grow irrational if left unattended. In a word, wild.

But things in Life and Astrology are always mixtures of +-, of yin and yang, male-fem, dark and light. So when Jupiter relates to others in an egomaniacal and unbalanced way, we often see a difficult personality that has necessarily developed many facets (masks) in the past for hiding the holes of the traits he doesn't possess. Parts of a human psyche go...missing and distorted. Ex: your average anti-social criminal types are 'missing' consciences for one reason or another.

Those of an I'm-on-the-world-stage-look-at-me mentality are simply ruthless to a much higher - make that, deeper - level, and their actions can affect larger numbers of people. They're hard to miss, so you probably know their names of the big ponzi scheme the world is saddled with. Think 'usury interest rates' and 'war profiteers' and you'll have most of them squirming in a giant pile already.

Astrologically, one signature for such a bigger-than-life egotist is a birth (natal) chart with all planets posited on one side (hemisphere) of a the 360 degree chart (circle.)

One clear example of this one-sided phenomena is George W. Bush of New Haven, CT.

You must have moxy, use of a good hynotist, and you must hold high a major goal to strive for, in order to reach the presidency and "catapult the propaganda" for the backers; yes, that's the job description someone gave W when he signed on to robot for the cause. He thoughtlessly passed the phrase on while on camera. To be crude, why should he have cared who knew? It's in the bag!

(Now other countries' presidencies and ministerships are much the same, of course. But it's America of which I speak - where Rs saluted and praised Bush after 9/11, almost as if he'd accomplished a feat which, for other men, would have been impossible. He stayed out of the way while Washington, DC, New York City, and __?__ (Pennsylvania) were attacked. Rotund monk Dick Cheney was behind a curtain with control panel in hand and button at elbow.)

So next time you spy a president or VP in your neighborhood, on TV, radio, iPhone, online, or wherever, please ask - of no one in particular - "What wealthy shadows back this nag?"

Then follow the whiff of money as it leads you by the nose like a cartoon cat or a mouse after cheese.

And let the world know what you find! At least that's what I'd do.

Thanks for sharing this... quite a frustrating chart indeed! Mars (lame-duck in Cancer no less) as MH ruler conj SN at the ASC definitely portends some immature selfish backsliding imo. Venus conj Saturn in Virgo in 3rd house really doesnt say anything nice about positive communication occurring either, perhaps purposeful stalling & bickering over minor details disguised as "compromise" (Mercury in Libra). More not-getting-anything-done to my eye. The semisextile between Uranus & Neptune is interesting but their retrogradation doesnt lift my spirits much. Sun at its very fall degree in the 4th isnt really helped out any by that lazy trine to the Grand Conjunction. "Look how cooperative we are w/ one another in being decisive about our willingness to endlessly debate over useless nuances!" Okay that's enough crabbery from me for now :D

Ah but in other news, i have a dear friend who is a professional fibers artist [read: knitter] and i directed him to yr daughter's etsy page! Hopefully he will dig her wares enough to order some.

Keep writing! And i will keep reading what you write.

Jed, this is a great analysis, thanks for posting it!

Can't seem to come up with a time when Mars/Pluto and the Dragon's coils and twists made a happy-go-lucky combo but i'd like to be wrong - how wonderful if their tremendous energy is directed for good use, not ill.

Yet I know Saturn approaches US n Neptune, and Pluto will be opposing US planets in Cancer for some time. i allow a 5 degr orb both ways with Pluto, how about you? Immediate effects may wane faster than they wax.

And the chart of the latest minute/second that Jupiter remains on 17:10 is informative as well, yet work schedules do interfere as heralded by necessity's whimper, don't they? Jude

Jed, almost forgot to say: thanks a bunch for snagging my dau's etsy link of yarns and sleins for your friend! ;p jude

tr Saturn on n Neptune for the US is gonna be one helluva awful bastard for the mass unconsciousness i think. Cold hard fact coming down ever so unmercifully upon our collective fantasy. Many astrologically-minded (and otherwise) folks wanna do the hasty BHO=JFK equation (i cant help but think of the magazine covers heralding "the new Camelot" *cringe*) and i suppose all the death threats etc do present an ominous tone to our dear sweet financier-backed prez's future but really, he has done little to push the buttons of the powers that be, so id say for now no event of that magnitude is on the horizon. However, that being said, that doesnt preclude the possibility of some dumb right-wing extremist under the radar of The Man's thumb to somehow manage to get a shot in. What the hell was up w/ Reagan's attempted assassination anyhow? Thatd be an interesting topic to astrologize... i'll do some research. Ah yes, fascinating! I will upload the chart to some sort of website tomorrow & link you to it - lots of lame Mars in Aries conj Sun in the 8th ruling the Leo ascendant lameness. Oh and Moon in Aquarius widely conjunct our favorite mathematical point the SN! Willfully regressive perversity abounds. Anyhow perhaps some dumbass such as Hinckley could be out in the woodwork somewhere but im really diverging here. I would assume the tr Saturn approach to US n Neptune (i like Sibly just fine) is more along the lines of - oh dammit my copy of COSI is not w/ me at the moment so nevermind for now. As far as tr Pluto orb allowances, 5 is fine for applying but separating i would personally assume no more than 2 or 3 is useful. Ah we will discuss more on this later! It's late & i have more beer in the fridge - yes ma'am! <3

Oh ugh i didnt even notice that NN is at the Pluto/Chiron midpoint and therefore opposite the Pluto/Chiron midpoint! Ugh i hate missing details. Ah we'll talk about it later xoxo
