Jupiter in Virgo and The Ethics of Robert Mueller

In the Realms of Jupiter

Here is how a recent post concerning the natal Jupiter of Donald Trump began with an explanation of Jupiterian personalities such as Mr.Trump whose Libran Jupiter is quick to call out, "it's not fair!":

"We no longer live in religious times, but the human need for the numinous, for something greater, more perfect and more powerful than ourselves has not disappeared. It has, however, taken a perverse turn. Instead of aspiring to the Infinite, we make gods out of mortals. We create 'super-stars' of athletes and artisans. We inflate, glamorize and worship actors, sports people, and musicians. We exalt them in other words. This phenomenon of elevating the ordinary to the extraordinary is a quality of Jupiter and Sagittarius (not so much Pisces). It emerges at the behavorial level in two basic ways:

1. The mantle of hero or king seems to fall most easily on those strong in Jupiter or Sagittarius.

2. Equally, the Sagittarian-Jupiter type can have a more than average tendency to idolize and hero worship. - Paul Wright.

As you know, Robert Mueller enjoys a longstanding reputation for integrity and independence. Therefore, let's consider the moral and ethical implications of astrological Jupiter (a boundary-crossing freedom lover) and its sign in his natal chart. Mr. Mueller's natal Jupiter @2Virgo38 sextiles his natal Saturn (@5Can59--conjunct US natal Jupiter). With no accurate birth time for former FBI director Mueller I'm looking at a noon horoscope for August 7, 1944 NYC.

The Totem Animal of Pallas (aka, Minerva): The Wise Old Owl

But first here's an assessment by millennial astrologer Kevin Estes who analyzed Mr. Mueller's ethics via his natal Pallas (@27Cancer--in Cancer = a protector of home and family) which conjoins natal North Node, a point of public contact, publicity, and future direction:

"Libertarian - Pallas conjunct NN, ruler of Pallas Moon trine NN;

Authoritarian - nothing. This suggests very strong ethics which isn't a surprise considering his actions and how he's handling the attempts to discredit him by the right." Thanks Kevin!

This supports Mueller's placement of Jupiter in Mercury-ruled Virgo which denotes a man with an expanded ability to discriminate and an innate understanding of the appropriate use of such discrimination. Attention to minute detail and organizational ability are talents and in a practical Earth sign, Jupiter tends to take on responsibilities and possess a large quantity of physical energy. Steadiness, reliability and pragmatism are in evidence. Why a Virgoan Jupiter alone grants its holder ethical and moral values!

And when Jupiter sextiles Saturn (the two societal planets relating to balance, and in government, to 'checks and balances') we find a man for whom self-improvement and accomplishment are lifelong pursuits. This sextile suggests a modest and conservative fellow who prefers traditional philosophies and who solves problems with a pragmatic approach.

Slow and steady development (as political pundits have credited him with during the Russia-Gate investigation) is his modus operandi with Jupiter in Virgo yet he seeks recognition and at times may fail to recognize his own limitations. Therefore, proper guidelines must be followed because over extension often leads to failure and, in addition, budgets must be carefully managed by this magnetic, intense loner (Sun conjunct Pluto in royal Leo).

The Highest-Resolution Thermal Images of Jupiter Yet - MSNBC

Jupiter in scientifically minded Virgo is in the spotlight on July 4, 2016! Astrologically speaking, this could have something to do with Jupiter and the North Node (of the Moon) traveling together in Virgo this year with the North Node relating to encounters, publicity, and public contact and Jupiter the planet being encountered by spacecraft Juno!

Jupiter in Virgo now triggers the Fascism Rising Solar Eclipse of 1933

If Not Nominated Candidate Trump Signals Riots for RNC 2016

When 2016 candidate Donald Trump announced his presidential bid on June 16, 2015 it was influenced that day by a New Moon @25Gemini which denotes a new cycle of activity, and for Mr. Trump marked a new cycle involving Mercury, planet of announcements and voting and ruler of communicative Gemini (sign of Good News).

And perhaps you caught my post on how rioting Uranus in Mars-ruled Aries is in process of returning to its degree in the Fascism Rising Solar Eclipse chart of 1933.

The actual dates of the Uranus Return/s to its 1933 degree are: April 16, 2016, December 5, 2016, and January 22, 2017. Naturally we both may note that the date of the third conjunction is uncomfortably near Inauguration 2017 on January 20th which could be one of the indicators of a Trump victory. (His impulsive finger on The Button? What are his supporters thinking???)

Another time link to 1933 and current political strong-armed tactics (aka, America's disastrous lean toward authoritarianism) is the Capricorn Full Moon which conjoins US natal Pluto and perfects during the 2016 Republican National Convention in July.. Recent primary results now point toward a brokered convention in an attempt to knock Trump off the GOP throne which is why Mr. Trump is signaling riots if he doesn't receive the Republican nomination which would suit perfectly the returning Uranus in Aries (blind zealots, anarchists, fanatics).

Now in the Fascism Rising Solar Eclipse chart (set for Berlin, Germany because of Hitler--it signaled FDR's first term in the US) Jupiter and Uranus are inconjunct (150 degrees) indicating far-fetched dreams, extension beyond safe limits, overreactions, and an urge for instant results. And since the Fascism Rising Jupiter also returns to its 1933 degree, the inconjunct aspect with disruptive Uranus is echoed in 2016/17 by both planets.

Below are the exact dates of the Jupiter Return/s to its 1933 degree of 19Virgo58 (Rx and in line with Neptune and Mars, the violent Marseillaise Trio of the French Revolution); also note that then and now, Jupiter conjoins fixed star Denebola, key phrases: to go against society, or, out of the mainstream (which Mr. Trump is as a non-politician):

Jupiter to 19Vir58: November 22, 2015, February 24, 2016, July 20, 2016 with the last occurring during RNC 2016.

View Prominent Jupiter on March 8, 2016!

Earth's closest approach to Jupiter in 2016 occurs on March 8 @18Virgo, precisely opposing the degree of the March 9, 2016 Solar Eclipse @18Pis56. Yes, that's Jupiter you're seeing in the morning sky but for further information on viewing the Gas Giant, don't miss Brian Ventrudo's An Observer's Guide to Planet Jupiter which includes a NASA video of the Great Benefic, the largest planet in our Solar System (only the Sun is larger.)

Astrological Jupiter in Virgo

As you know, Pisces, the sign of the March 9, 2016 Solar Eclipse, is traditionally ruled by Jupiter (and sub-ruled by oceanic Neptune, discovered in 1846.) Jupiter also rules Sagittarius, sign of The Seeker, which resonates with astrological Jupiter's hierophant/codified religion/ideology facets of this boundary breaking planet. When in Pisces, societal planet Jupiter spotlights potentials in the Collective that magnify tendencies of the 'swim up or swim down' sign of Pisces--to the heights or to the depths of humanity. Spirituality and compassion are part of Piscean realms as well and Virgo-Pisces is the victim-savior axis of the Zodiac. Turn on the news and we hear both sides of the human condition playing out across the globe with altruism, impressionability, overindulgence in negative escapism such as alcohol and other drugs receiving constant mentions.

The March 9th Solar Eclipse in its role as 'wild card' of the Universe will behave as eclipses often do: uncovering secrets and scandals, many of which may be inconvenient for those affected--and 2016 candidates and various politicians are not exempt especially if they have natal planets or points in the 17-19 degrees of Virgo or Pisces! Also of interest in the realms of Political Astrology: the March 9th eclipse is the Pre-Natal Eclipse of both the RNC and DNC nomination events in July. Tap or click the eclipse link, above, for more info.

While traveling through Mercury-ruled Virgo, expansive Jupiter tends to activate such traits as: ethical and moral values, the urge to gain knowledge, teaching, excessive ambition, superficial criticism, an ability to organize, thoughtlessness, and the possibility of harmonious teamwork. (The Combination of Stellar Influences, Reinhold Ebertin.) To this I would add scientific (Virgo) breakthroughs or discoveries (Jupiter) with Jupiter also signifying exploration and finances (Wall Street is loaded with Jupiterians!) Big (Jupiter) Plans (Mercury) are on the political agenda. (Note that Mercury also rules trading and deals such as those promised in the rhetoric of Donald Trump, the artful deal-maker.)

So as you see, some of the traits on the Jupiter-in-Virgo list relate to Campaign 2016, plus, two of the many hats astrological Jupiter may wear are The Politician and The Broadcaster. Campaign promises (Jupiter) include more jobs (Virgo) and better access to (free or more affordable) education which Jupiter in Virgo naturally favors.

So perhaps even armchair astronomers may care to tip their hats in honor of Jupiter, King of Planets, on March 8, 2016--he's a bright beauty!

Bernie Sanders Picks up a Couple of Unexpected Endorsements - Thom Hartmann reports

Jan 1, 2016: This Just In concerning Senator Bernie Sanders' 2016 Campaign:

Related: Is This the Natal Horoscope of Bernie Sanders? which may or may not be set for his correct time of birth, however, the planets in the chart are based on his date of birth. You'll note that the added endorsements come at a time when the planet of politics, expansion, and good fortune, Jupiter, has been and is within orb of his North Node (a Jupiterian point of public contact; joining) and dreamy, idealistic Neptune in Virgo, sign of The Worker and The Critic.

And I'm sending out a huge Thank You, Everyone, for all your tweets, re-tweets, and shares throughout 2015! Jude
