“Disenchantment, whether it is a minor disappointment or a major shock, is the signal that things are moving into transition in our lives.” William Throsby Bridges

This is the last full day of the Moon in “transitioning” Scorpio, with Scorpio the sign of the zodiac formally governing both death and rebirth. Scorpio also rules such things as debt and taxes, and resources that we share with others (joint financial matters, sex).

Today may deliver even more poignant transitions than normal because we still have expander Jupiter, in money-ruling Taurus, involved in a tight, less than one degree trine with Pluto, Scorpio’s ruler, in influential Capricorn, the sign of government, business and career.

Abundant Jupiter, the planet of growth and opportunity, expands whatever it touches and aligned with transforming, rejuvenating Pluto (and the Scorpio Moon), we potentially have a colossal chance (Jupiter) to dramatically reconfigure or reshape things in our lives now, including positively altering our perceptions. This is actually, in a way, very “magical energy” that we have at our disposal now. Magical in the sense that it is replete with great alchemical potential.

It is also a good day to perhaps read about or study matters that we don’t understand, or that are a mystery to us. Scorpio is intrinsically “investigative energy” and always gives us the cool chance to put on our fetching detective caps. The penetrating Scorpio Moon also provides us with a firm backdrop for poking holes through some of our rigid defenses that may be holding us hostage psychologically. Pluto-ruled Scorpio presides over our subconscious, the gateway to our buried past. It also rules the study of psychology.

The protective, nurturing Cancer Sun is additionally forming a fortuitous quintile (72-degree aspect) to optimistic Jupiter today, throwing in an upbeat, creative vibe to the energy of the day. Jupiter governs our vision for ourselves, and endows us with a good measure of faith and hope in the future. The quintile aspect also denotes “special gifts” or “abilities.”

In the News:

With “wild card” Uranus stationing retrograde in “sports-ruling” Aries yesterday, Derek Jeter, a Cancer Sun, became the first Yankees player ever to join the magical “3000 hits” club, a feat only 28 other players in baseball history have been able to accomplish. I mentioned in yesterday’s blog that when a planet changes direction, it tends to call more attention to itself. Uranus is the planet of change and unpredictability. It also governs “genius,” or “flashes of brilliance.”

Fascinatingly, Uranus, which is presently at 4 degrees of Aries, also stationed retrograde in Jeter’s personal horoscope as part of an exact “cardinal t-cross,” in his chart, involving Jeter’s 4 degree Cancer Sun (his sense of power) and 4 degree Pluto in Libra (his ability to transform his life).

Too, often with “action-packed” cardinal energy, is when we see things really “pop,” especially when the “t-cross” or “grand cross configurations” are  also involved.  Jeter also has lucky, transiting Jupiter exactly sextile to his success-driven Saturn in Cancer now, perhaps supplying a good measure of “extra icing” on his cosmic cake. Jupiter harmonious to Saturn is characteristically a time when we are able to manifest our goals and dreams, with form-builder Saturn overseeing our personal and worldly ambitions. Way to go, Derek!
