But here is what to watch for:
* We’re closing in on the exact opposition from Jupiter to Uranus and so far we’ve seen a few decisive expressions of the Jupiter/Uranus opposition: the assassination of a Russian diplomat in Turkey, the terrorist attack in Berlin, the continued political drama and polarization in US politics, and a fireworks factory explosion in Mexico (among others).
* Each of these recent news stories bears the signature of explosive, sudden, hard hitting, and potentially revolutionary events, but the point isn’t that these somehow represent the transit as a whole. Rather, these stories are some of the most popular images in the media that are symbolically expressive of the Jupiter/Uranus dynamic. Collective images tell the stories of millions of personal, private experiences, and so we can study them to get an understanding of what’s happening in our own lives.
* Because the Moon and Jupiter are together today, we may see more Jupiter/Uranus dynamics in the headlines or in our personal lives. Look for rapid accelerations, sudden and unexpected changes of circumstance, revolutionary or rebellious or groundbreaking ideas or experiences, and fast moving changes or surges of creative passion.
* Remember that Pluto is also in the mix of this opposition, which means these changes have the power to strip things down, reveal and expose what’s below the surface, purge, purify, and rebirth us…but the darkness and intensity of Pluto is right in the mix of things, and it can definitely touch on our fears, our sicknesses, the truth of our deepest desires, and so forth.
As we are now passing through the solstice gateway, the end of this lunar cycle, especially the perfecting of Jupiter’s opposition to Uranus in the next few weeks, will set the stage for the year ahead.
Prayer: Show us the way forward. Protect us. Guide us. Take away what is no longer necessary. Open the door.
