With Jupiter now transiting the mid-degrees of Tropical Gemini and in the midst of the stars of Orion where the June 5/6, 2012 Venus Transit occurred with its 'paternalism' vibe, the Great Benefic is in the news:
Space Weather News for Sept 11, 2012
EXPLOSION ON JUPITER: Amateur astronomers are reporting a bright fireball on Jupiter--apparently the result of a small asteroid hitting the planet during the early hours of Sept 10th. As the fireball fades, attention turns to possible debris around the impact site.
Observers will be monitoring the region in the nights ahead to see what surfaces. Check SpaceWeather.com for images and updates.
Astro-Note: On October 4, 2012 Jupiter will Station Retrograde @16Gem23 at approximately 9:18 am edt (in 8th house, Washington DC) with the Sun @11Lib43 and 3 days from shining on US natal Saturn, a time of serious circumstances and a particularly important meeting for President Obama. As you know, Oct 4 is the day after the first Obama-Romney debate in Denver, Colorado.
Plus, the Oct 4 Moon @00Gem45 reflects the prior (PE) Solar Eclipse of May 20, 2012 @00Gem20 along with the influences of the Fixed Star Alcyone 00Gem00, one of the Seven Sisters, or the Weepers. We've discussed Alcyone and the Pleiades (which figured into last night's episode of Perception!) many times so I won't repeat here except to say that Alcyone's 'something to cry about; exile; lots of rain' indications remain on our cosmic radar for October 2012. Something oceanic may also be part of the picture, or, someone who goes missing.
When Jupiter goes Rx, we may expect trouble with finances for resources are withheld or delayed and this bodes ill for debt and budget discussions on Capitol Hill (lame duck session), and since Jupiter also rules ideology, its inward-turning Rx period won't do the October debates or Election 2012 much good either especially since voting Mercury performs a Rx station on November 4 at around 6:03 pm edt. This cosmic circumstance has also been previously discussed on SO'W so repeating is unnecessary except to remind you that Mercury's Rx Station occurs opposite President Obama's natal Moon 3Gem21--and there's Jupiter gone Rx in Gemini, sign of Communications, Thinking Processes, and The News.
Not Again! Yes, Election Day 2000 also had Mercury Rx, as you remember, so astrologers are predicting a similar recount-dispute-voting-irregularity election for 2012. So am I. Tiresome, isn't it?
