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!

DC Horoscope: Jupiter Direct Station @13Virgo May 9, 2016

Image:Jupiter Direct Station May 9, 2016 at 8:14:20 am EDT Washington DC. Potential concerns for Jupiter in Mercury-ruled Virgo include moral and ethical values, scientific research, learning and teaching, excessive ambition, harmonious teamwork, good organizational skills, and superficial criticism. And of course, Jupiter may wear many hats such as politician, banker, guru or priest, judge or lawyer, and the General. (Edit: actor and broadcaster.)

As you see, transit Jupiter, once Direct, will encounter the North Node (NN) once again with nebulous Neptune at South Node (the tail of the dragon) so this period is half way between the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction/s of 2009 which has imprinted its issues of grand visions, speculation, and fraud upon the presidency of Barack Obama, and describes some of what he has dealt with since taking office (ex: Crash 2008, big bank bail outs, etc.)

Now the above horoscope shows Jupiter's precise moment of directional change so once the great Benefic moves forward, such realms as Jupiter rules may move forward as well though a hearing for President Obama's Supreme Court nominee apparently will not be one of them due to Republican obstructionism which is a Saturnian kind of cussedness.

Edit: neglected is a mention of May 9, 2016 as the day of a Mercury Transit to the Sun.

Sen Bernie Sanders spotlights Reality in fiery Senate speech - video

There are many clips of Independent Senator Bernie Sanders, speeches or interviews, through which we hear the echo of his fiery Aries Moon. The video below is one such for those with 13 minutes 5 seconds to listen. Passionate emotions are undisguised as the traditional translation of Moon in Aries loudly announces its energies via the senator and expresses that "I AM the People" a great quality to possess for those working in Politics (useful elsewhere as well). Better for a server sort of person which is the adult personality or essence (Virgo Sun) of Bernie Sanders, a servant of the people and a spokesman for the Collective.

Soon the upcoming Solar Eclipse, a cosmic blink, aka, a Uranian 'wild card' of the Universe, will express themes of seeing a situation, event, and/or person for what it/he/she really is rather than what you thought; a good time for tackling the truth. (Paraphrasing Predictive Astrology, B. Grady.) Perhaps with these themes as a background, retrospectives on the life and decisions of the recently departed Justice Antonin Scalia will benefit from these more sober contemplative frequencies influencing the Collective around and during the eclipse season. For even moderation should be moderated. But a fiery Aries Moon feeling fed up with systemic corruption to the core?!

So, good news, you chronically victimized American public! Alan 'Epiphany' Greenspan belatedly realized his 'ideology is flawed'!! It's an ideology that neglects others in that Ayn-Rand-ish kind of way, harboring a deeply selfish greed that purports to lift The Individual to godlike status (it pretends) and in the process, harms and exploits the masses. Yes, Mr. Greenspin and those of his ilk were and are "out of touch with the lives of the American people" by choice--in other words, they are out of touch with the stark reality of the Common Man that they helped engineer yet they do not have to share in the consequences of their actions (yet)! Powerful gold-hoarder Pluto now about midway through Saturn-ruled Capricorn is determined on that score ('the dictator')...a main feature of their global agenda is self-protection (for themselves, not for us.) One must suppose that they always have escape pods ready.

Well, dear reader, these sentiments are hereby very clumsily expressed and so I ask you to please allow Senator Sanders to remark upon the anti-societal behavior of the greedy 'economic royalists' (as FDR called them, although technically he was one of them yet at the least he pretended to have a conscience) while February 2016's transit Jupiter and the undulating Head of the Dragon (Moon's North Node) dance around together, sometimes in tandem (as seen from Earth). Now Jupiter will be turning Direct @13Virgo and moving forward to tango (or tangle!) with the Moon's Nodal axis once again before majestically passing onward toward Venus-ruled Libra, sign of the Scales of Justice. Libra is the sign where expansive Jupiter will join forces a while with America's natal Saturn @14Libra48 (on July 4, 1776) and we may expect that a restriction or burden will be partially lifted. This may relate to President Obama's constitutionally mandated to nominate someone for the Supreme Court. However, truth and justice will be requirements if the resulting benefits are to last and we know how seriously challenged the majority of American politicians are on that score.

Senator Bernie Sanders on the Senate floor circa 2012 if memory serves.

SOTU 2016: Achievements plus Realism

January 12, 2016: Tonight as President Obama delivers the final State of the Union Address to a Joint Session of Congress (9:00 pm est Capitol Building) the degree of the Pre-Natal Eclipse of the November 8, 2016 Election/s rises @9Virgo (September 1, 2016). This denotes a speech that in some way will touch on the themes of the eclipse in the 19 North Saros Series which are: 'realism, coming down to earth, and becoming aware of an old situation and seeing it for what it truly is' (B. Brady). Refreshing for Washington Politics? Yes, yet this could include critiques of Republican ideas especially with Virgo being the sign of The Critic. Of course, the 19 North is also the PE of Inauguration 2017 so these themes will continue to be on most people's menus.

And naturally the current Mercury (speech; messages) retrograde period is perfect for a president on his way out the White House door--perfect for delivering a litany of his achievements while in office and regrets over what didn't get done. And with Mercury as chart-ruler (Rx) we may expect grandiose ideas, boasts about economic improvements and foreign affairs, and fairly good reception of the speech from the press and from the public (Mercury trines the Jupiter-North Node conjunction in Virgo: broad overview!).

As for 19 North, its initial eclipse occurred on July 5, 1331 (OS) @20Cancer so current themes are filtered through Cancerian concerns such as security, home, and business. For comparison of similar events, 19 North also manifested in the years: 1908, 1926, 1944, 1962, 1980. 1998, (September 1, 2016 @9Virgo), and will next occur in 2034.

Christmas Day 2015 Full Moon and a "Double" Ancestor Horoscope

On December 25, 2015 a Full Moon perfects at 6:11:27 am EST @3Can19 conjunct US natal Venus. As US History and the Cosmos would have it, this lunar position is the Syzygy Moon degree (last lunation prior to birth) of an ancestor of mine--a "double" ancestor thanks to his having two wives each with offspring who descend to my paternal and maternal side--because he was born Christmas Day 1776. Here's a noon chart for my "double" 4th-great-grandfather David Barnett (birth hour unknown) who was born in Christiansburg, Virginia and this "double" circumstance, I suppose, makes me my own cousin:

The KITE I'm not actually counting since his birth time is set specualtively for 'noon' but there is an Air Grand Trine pattern between Uranus, Mars, and Venus which denotes one who prefers a mental ivory tower, may have been somewhat detached or aloof, was charismatic, popular, idealistic, attracted friends and cooperation, and was a talented communicator (Tierney.) Of course, the protective nature of a Grand Trine was present. Success is indicated by a Locomotive shape with revolutionary Uranus as lead engine (and this is, of course, near America's natal Uranus degree.) Highlighted in yellow is David's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series, the 13 North which manifested on August 14, 1776 with the completed signing of the Declaration of Independence occurring on August 2--within two weeks of the eclipse ('breaking of an existing bond which leads to joint achievement'--paraphrasing B. Brady.)

Another curiosity of the 1776 and 2015 charts is that the December 25, 2015 Full Moon horoscope shows Jupiter and North Node near one another in transit (22Vir56 and 25Vir35--in 9th house in the Washington DC chart) and on David Barnett's day of birth Jupiter was exalted in Cancer (22:12 Rx) with North Node (NN) @27Can15 nearby--obviously Jupiter an dPluto were inprocess of opposing one another, a time of contest of wills and dealing with issues of power, control, and money. We already discussed the three times that Jupiter and North Node conjoin in 2016 and the possibilities. Additionally, Mercury in Capricorn and Mars in Libra are square one another in both charts (1776 vs 2015) though at different degrees; this square denotes creativity but also judgmentalism.

Now if you enlarge the chart you'll see David's Pluto-South-Node conjunction which I've marked as "Revolutionary times" for the pair denote war, violence, and massive disruptions in society. This is America's natal Pluto position, of course, but the SN is closer to Pluto here than in our natal chart with SN in Aquarius (July 1776.)

And in spite of all the current 'wars and rumors of war' going on and threatening to ramp up into global revolution, we must look to Spring 2019 to find another transiting Pluto-SN conjunction of the power planet of sabotage, spies, and death and the South Node of the Moon, aka, the tail of the dragon.

2016 Politics: Jupiter-North Node conjoin in Virgo

Money Planet Jupiter and the North Node Connect Three Times in 2016

by Jude Cowell

Having discovered an excellent article by Nina Gryphon concerning 2016's Jupiter-North Node conjunction in Virgo I recommend it highly for a good overview is provided of several areas some of which involve the Federal Reserve. Nina relates the conjunction/s in 2016 to the ending and beginning of a new fiscal era as it did in 1979 when the Fed changed its policy and a period of fluctuating rates and instability occurred. For as you know, Jupiter inflates, the North Node (NN) of the Moon is a Jupiterian point of encounter, contact, association, and direction and Mercury-ruled Virgo is a detail-oriented, discriminating Earth sign closely linked to the very creation of Washington DC.

But what areas are implicated by the Jupiter-NN combination in Politics?

As an actor, Jupiter can play many roles, four of which are politician, banker, guru (mentor, priest), and The General. All of these realms are subject to influence from the Jupiter-NN conjunction/s of 2016. And with 2016 an election year, we naturally think of the 2016 Campaign which is focused on the Republican and Democratic Conventions in July 2016, and the November 8, 2016 Presidential Election with Jupiter often used to signify one of America's two political parties. Which one? Which ever one is acting the Santa Claus role as the other party acts out the austere Grinch role. You know which is which these days based on their behaviors, right? So if I must, I'll gingerly reward the Jupiter-NN title to the Democratic Party for 2016. Actually the Jupiter-Saturn pair of energies is the 'checks and balances' duo, the way the US government is meant to work and be conducted but you know how that's been going lately--under constant threat of paralysis and shutdown thanks to anti-government types aiming for a 'new order' to replace the old order of 1776.

So as Nina Gryphon points out in her article, exact conjunctions of Jupiter and NN in 2016 occur on January 23, January 28, and June 20 @22Virgo in January and again in August--conjunct US natal Neptune @22Virgo making 2016 a year of fanaticism, paranoia, illusions, scandals, big dreams, promotion and pretense--quite descriptive of Campaign 2016. By June 20, transit Jupiter, after turning Direct in May, will reach 15Vir42, then conjoin US natal Neptune again in late July-early August 2016 suggesting that the themes will color the entire year and political campaign, and will necessarily involve the presidency of Barack Obama due to its inflated, fantasy-ridden Jupiter-Neptune imprint in 2009 via their three conjunctions through his first year in office, a major conjunction which conjoined US natal Moon (We the People). Obamacare and Wall Street are implicated as well.

And in Politics, the 'fortunate contacts' Jupiter-NN duo keys potentials in 2016 regarding: legal consequences of treaties (ex: TPP), legal opinions of religious leaders, and/or imports that disrupt trade or business (ex: TPP?). The interference in legal matters by religious leaders may be excessive, closed legal societies may be involved or turn up in the news, and/or our legal system will continue to be hampered and bound by erroneous decisions concerning the status of groups ('corporations are people'?) or parties (which hints at candidates illegally coordinating their campaigns and promotions with groups they shouldn't.)

Expansion of contacts through networking is a given along with successful meetings, and work/job related (Virgo) summits, conferences, and/or seminars which may be held in abundance and be successful as well. Political primaries and caucuses are on the 2016 menu, plus, The Broadcaster is one of Jupiter's roles and since North Node relates to contact with the public, we also think of Summer 2016 which threatens the American public with two political nominating conferences so it will be nearly impossible to escape hearing all about it. Too fast or far expansion is also a possibility for it may lead to future collapse so that would be a caution for anyone this applies to--the traditional caution of 'too much too soon' comes to mind.

During 2016 we must also consider that transiting NN (the head of the dragon) also meets with US natal Neptune (22Virgo) in 2016 and this combination may supply Neptunian glamour and/or falsehoods to our contacts but also such potentials as: a lack of community spirit or teamwork, bad judgment, disappointments in relationships or alliances, strange conduct, plus, it may widen the possibilities for anti-social behavior. Unfortunately, Neptune-NN also suggests scandals via foreign concerns, and spies and/or terrorists entering the country which of course points to the acceptance or non-acceptance of Syrian refugees and to America's ongoing arguments over Washington's neglect of adequate border control.

To close, let's add Ebertin's more pleasant descriptions of the Jupiter-NN combination of energies for he supplies more social and agreeable flavors such as: good fellowship, harmonious relationships, and good fortune in finding a partner (though anti-social conduct cannot be ruled out.) Another curious flavor comes from the 19th century and I wonder if you've ever heard of it: the Odyle force, sometimes referred to as the 'Od force' which sounds oddly quaint these days, doesn't it?

Well, why not check it out some brief details at Secret Moon Art? And here is a view of my Od Collage created in 2009 in honor of the 19th century's 'scientific' notion of the existence of an Odyle force:
