Strange Behavior From Jupiter and Neptune
This article is based on the work I did for my October 2009 newsletter. It is written for both astrologers and the general public, so the explanations are direct and simple. But as I worked Precizn Neptune the article, a completely different approach opened up. I could not use it for the general public (too technical) but had a good information flow for astrologers and a speculative concept I have been considering about the shadow effect of planetary stations. The general article is entitled Jupiter conjunct Neptune: Inspiration or Delusion and has the astrologer-directed material following:
Jupiter conjunct Neptune: Inspiration or Delusion?
Research for me is continual, for my current book, for my larger book on the presidents, for my other studies, such as my serial killer research and for interesting subjects that come up moment to moment. Sometimes there are so many interesting subjects I get sidetracked. Life itself is so diverse, so huge, one lifetime would not be enough to satisfy my curiosity. The battle between conformity and change still has a full head of steam but I addressed that previously. There is another aspect underway that reaches a pivot point Tuesday, October 13, 2009 that deserves attention. Transiting Jupiter and Neptune have been doing a great joining in the sky for several months and are getting ready to finalize their dance. October 13th’s action is the beginning of the end, but not the end itself.
Jupiter conjunct Neptune is one of those several month patterns, one I had thought to be inspirational and uplifting in nature. The two planets that represent expansion and inspiration, that equate closest to our concept of religion and spirituality, the great benefic and the uplifter have been in a positive joining of energies (conjunction). I wonder why it has been giving people, including me, a fit? A few first person stories were obviously difficult. I did recommend this conjunction to be a positive influence in our experience. I did choose to publish my book under this aspect. The actual effect has been a real puzzle to me. Why?
Jupiter represents the principle of expansion, enlargement, benefit, the silver lining, more and better. Neptune represents the principle of spirituality, inspiration, ideas, imagination, upliftment. Having said that, the planets are neither good nor bad and both sides of the coin can express the positive words I listed and their negative connotation as well. Enlargement can become excess, you can promise much and deliver less, put yourself out on a limb, under or overestimate. Ideas can become pipe dreams, inspiration can become disappointment, spirituality could become delusion. The aspect involved is a joining together of the two energies. Jupiter and Neptune together don’t usually create a problem and this does occur every 13 years with a change of sign. This time the sign is Aquarius, intellectual, forward seeking, group consciousness, electric and dynamic, Overall, expansion and inspiration holding hands in the sign of the future should be pretty darn nice and there shouldn’t be an urgent need to look at the negative keywords.
This is an unfinished aspect, so perhaps the outcome will outshine the process itself. That does happen in life. At times things look great but the outcome is not welcome. Sometimes things look bleak but we come out of it okay. I really prefer it when “what you sees is what you gets.” That makes my readings and my life much easier to say nothing of my clients’ lives. This should be a good aspect. I don’t see anything truly wrong with it and no real reason to doubt the outcome, but it sure is acting strangely.
There is a beginning, middle, and an end to all aspect patterns. This pattern started at the end of May 2009 and culminates the end of December 2009, the beginning and the end. What is in the middle is the process of experience, which is now. The numbers are 24-26.5 Aquarius but there is an aura of experience around this from 17 to 27 Aquarius that can also be affected. Anyone with personal positions in this area can be directly affected (me!). The USA Moon is at 22.5, so all the matters related to that Moon are being affected. What does the USA Moon represent in our country? The people, citizenry, home, hearth, family, nesting, mother country, feelings and emotions, my country right or wrong, I think we can see a bit of that going on with the run-away, over the top, expanded, wild imagination, untruths, the citizenry emoting at town halls, you fill in the rest of the blanks. Just why is this a good thing?
I have listened to the citizenry, the politicians and the pundits as they have tried to 1) get a handle on what is going on, 2) capitalize on the nonsense, 3) speculate beyond belief (which has tended to make matters worse), and 4) show the best and worst of us as a country. Is there a positive here? Somewhere along the line a few have mentioned that the heated discussion is useful, positive, our right as citizens, American (we were born out of revolution and our Founding Fathers were revolutionaries), and purposeful, We certainly are not ever going to wonder what people thought of any point in this because they told it like they saw it.
