AT LAST, SOME obviously good news as
the month begins with a very Jupiterian
Full Moon, encompassing the Sun perfectly
conjunct Jupiter in Pisces opposite the
Moon in Virgo. Full Moons vary greatly in
their quality depending on how they link
up with other planets and asteroids, but
this one is a beauty, part of a kite (a Grand
Trine with additional sextiles to one end of
an opposition) involving Pluto in Capricorn
and Juno conjunct Eros in Taurus. This will
be an exceptional month on many levels.
The massive Jupiter is the only planetary
body that gives off more energy than it
receives from the Sun and so is associated
with big energy, expansive, growthful,
benevolent and gracious. You could call
him the grace bestowing power of God
and certainly good things happen when
his influence is strong. Spending most of
the year in Pisces speaks of a significantly
positive year for Pisceans and for all
things creative, mystical and empathetic.
There’s a part of Jupiter that is very
worldly, connecting with abundance, with
enterprise, development and opportunity
and there’s another that is profoundly
spiritual and otherworldly, hence the
associations with Ganesh and Lakshmi.
As a co-ruler of Pisces, he’s very much at
home in the sign.
This big energy then adds its largesse to
both Sun and Moon, beaming out to other
points as well. The Sun conjunct Jupiter is
a tremendously expansive and encouraging
combination that can rejuvenate our
confidence, faith and trust in life in general.
In Pisces, this will come with great visions,
realisations and creative inspiration as the
doorways between the conscious mind
and the other realms of awareness open.
There is also much inner restoration in its
qualities, both encouraging greater
connection with our inner worlds and
assisting in the recovery of mislaid parts
of self. While this can come with great
emotional gushing and releases, this is also
a part of reclaiming our deeper sensitivities,
capacity for compassion and empathy,
a process which must take us closer to
the essence of the child in us as much as
to our spirituality. At the same time, the
need for outer expression is paramount
because the energy is too big to keep still
and quiet, having a Dionysian orgiastic
and orgasmic quality to it as well, as found
in unstructured dance, creative outbursts
and ecstatic spiritual practices.
The only real problem with Jupiter is
excess and inflation in all for ms, whether
through consumption, greed, arrogance,
poor boundaries and simply going over the
top in different ways that become wasteful
and abusive. Here the Jupiter/Sun can look
like two drunks staggering happily arm in
arm in the middle of a freeway. Similarly,
most of history ’s great egomaniacs have
great Jupiters, too. However, this month
the Moon in Virgo offers an appropriate
counter to this tendency with her
trademark humility, ear thy realism and
capacity for psychic containment. While
the big boys can play, or play up, she holds
the ground from her position high in the
This earthy counterpoint is also very
important this month as Mercury, ruling
our mental workings and communication
processes, is conjunct the Neptune/Chiron
conjunction in Aquarius, who are, in turn,
compacted between Hekate and Medusa!
The former means that alongside the
positives of this month come significant
periods of psychic turbulence, difficulties
with clarity in communications, and
liberating spiritual and healing experiences
tangled with great uncertainty and confusing
projections. So we can expect things to get
more than a little messy at times, but all of
which is the product and the symptoms
of big psychic movements intent on
healing old wounds and reconnecting us
with more of the right side of our brains.
Attending to these processes spiritually
and therapeutically can allow us to gain
maximum benefit of a very tricky line-up,
especially on the day-to-day level.
If you look more deeply into the
mythology of Mercury, Her mes and
Mercurius, you find that he is more than
just about the mundane operations of our
intellects. He is also a mediator between
the upper and lower worlds, between the
gods of Olympus and the Underworld,
between conscious and unconscious.
The chaos generated by this combination
is also a calling both up and down in our
awareness, in our chakras. It’s a demand to
listen more deeply within, something not
so different to the Jupiter process and a
definite opportunity. The less we listen, the
more messy things are likely to get.
But don’t expect to be met by light
and love exclusively, although it will
be in the mix. Liz Greene once wrote
that underneath every mild-mannered,
sensitive, compassionate, creative Piscean
lies Kali, waiting to be expressed, waiting to
be claimed. With two of her western faces,
Hekate and Medusa, sitting with Mercury,
Chiron and Neptune, you can be sure that
this is more than an expression of interest
this month. As our minds are being called
within, she is rising and the big question is
whether we are up for it, as an extraordinary
possibility for healing and reclamation.
There is so much Shakti in this
combination that we can expect some
major emotional er uptions as she surfaces
and some exceptional releases as Jupiter
simultaneously shines his light into her
depths. The grace of both is there!
