Jupiter conjunction Saturn: A new freedom
A transit approaching its end, from 28 September 2016, remaining until 7 October 2016: During
this time you will confront your own inhibitions and self-restrictions, as well as the
restrictions placed upon you by circumstances. You may wish to break free of them in order to
enlarge your scope of activity, so you can go to places and do things that you have never been
able to do before. On the other hand, you may choose to grow within the structure of
restriction in your life, using that very structure to enlarge your life. It can go either
way, depending very much upon your temperament. And neither way is better as a general rule.
It depends entirely on what is appropriate in terms of your own life.
If you respond by trying to break free, you will begin to feel very restless. Events and
circumstances will make it clear that you have neglected much that must be done, and the
structures of your life that have held you back will seem intolerable. You can no longer
accept barriers such as responsibilities that you have put up with for years, onerous duties
or perhaps a built-in fear of breaking away from the established order. Consequently, if you
react in this way, this is often a time of breaking away and leaping out into a new freedom.
This is often accompanied by a change of residence or the breakup of relationships. And
however catastrophic these changes seem to others, they are usually quite fortunate and allow
everything to work out for the best.
If you respond in the second manner, you will also seek to expand your life and find new
freedom, but for a variety of reasons you will not overthrow the structures of your life in
order to do so. Instead you will seize every opportunity to build new structures and expand
the already existing order. Whatever you build up now, either in yourself or in the outer
world, will be lasting.
Jupiter square Ascendant: On the lookout
From 9 October 2016 until 18 October 2016: This is usually an excellent time for most kinds of
relationships, but there are some pitfalls. Basically this influence signifies a desire to
grow and advance through contacts with others. Probably you are willing to give as much as
you get, although in some people this influence triggers a desire for advantages through
others without giving anything in return. In fact as they get ahead, such people act
arrogantly toward everyone, even those who helped them. This causes others to reject them,
and when they hit hard times there is no one to help them out.
But this result is totally unnecessary, and all you have to do to avoid it is to keep a sense
of humility and recognize what others have done for you. With this influence you have the
potential to become a truly better person, but only if you keep these warnings in mind.
Quite frequently this influence brings a seemingly "lucky" chance through a friend or
associate. But it is not luck so much as the fact that you are very sharply on the lookout
for opportunities that can benefit you. Your sense of timing is very acute, and your
sensitivity to others and their needs is greater than usual. That is one reason why it is so
bad to ignore others' needs, because you don't even have the excuse of ignorance.
Benefits can come to you in either your personal and domestic life or in your public life.
There may be an opportunity to make money or to make improvements in your home that will make
it much more pleasant. Or you may meet people who will help you learn more about the world
and expand your view of it in various ways. You have to be willing to let this happen,
however, which means you must be receptive. This is another area in which being arrogant
brings the risk that you will get nothing of lasting value out of this period.
Jupiter opposition Jupiter: A little care and restraint
From 22 October 2016 until 1 November 2016: Under this influence you are likely to feel quite
good, with enough confidence to handle just about anything. It is a period in your life when
you feel optimistic and as though you can do whatever you want. However, you may be somewhat
overconfident, so be careful not to take on more than you can handle.
At this point, several time-consuming projects may be coming to a head at once. This could be
either quite advantageous or quite difficult, depending upon how well you have estimated your
capacities in the past. What is happening now may be more than you can deal with, so you may
have to cut back a bit.
This can also be a time of restlessness, for you feel that your everyday world is simply not
"big" enough or does not provide enough experience for you. If you feel this way, you need to
enlarge your scope of activity somewhat, but again be careful not to overreach.
You may have given others the impression that you want too much (in their terms, at least),
and they may try to prevent you from getting any further. If this happens, all you can do is
confront them directly and try to reassure them that this is not the case.
However, none of this is necessary. With a little care and restraint, you can convert this
into an excellent time that will produce considerable good, especially in financial matters.
This influence can make you either extremely extravagant or extremely successful in such
matters, depending upon your natural bent.
Jupiter square Uranus: Negatively suggestible
Beginning of November 2016 until mid-July 2017: The effects of this influence can vary
considerably. On the one hand, it can indicate a "bolt out of the blue" lucky chance or
change in fortune, a sudden opportunity that significantly changes your life. But on the
other hand, it can indicate such restlessness and impatience with restrictions that you create
a major disturbance in your life in your efforts to become free.
Under any circumstances you are likely, rightly or wrongly, to see change as the only way to
get ahead, and to a certain extent this is always true. But the danger here is that you will
seek change for its own sake and not take the time to examine carefully which changes will be
most effective. There is a strong tendency to be negatively suggestible, that is, to always
go in the opposite direction from any pressure.
Freedom in general is very important to you at this time, and you will work very hard to get
it in some area. In relationships, this can be disruptive because you are likely to be
hostile toward anything that keeps you "in line." Also this influence can signify a time of
constant change, when you cannot tell from one day to the next what you are going to do.
But opportunity will probably come, if you can maintain a certain degree of restraint without
putting yourself into such a straitjacket that you cannot move when the opportunity presents
itself. You do in fact need freedom from something at this time, and you will probably get
exactly what and how much you need, as long as you avoid moving so quickly and impulsively
that you ruin your chances for creative change. If you remain calm, you will suddenly see and
be able to take an opportunity to get ahead or to become free from restriction. Be patient,
and you will discover that not much more patience is required.
Jupiter conjunction Neptune: A sense of compassion
Beginning of December 2016 until mid-August 2017: During this time your ideals will be aroused
as they seldom are at other times, and you will approach life with a greater sense of
compassion. People who cannot help themselves will win your sympathy especially, whether you
encounter them personally or through working with others in a charitable enterprise. Your
primary concern is to help individuals by giving them a hand. You may be less concerned with
transforming the social order that has given rise to the conditions that oppress the people
you are dealing with.
Your interest in spiritual, religious and mystical philosophy is likely to grow at this time,
and you may become involved in a group that is studying these subjects. This world no longer
seems to meet your needs adequately, so you have to turn inward to find a world that can give
you what you really need. Here, too, you will discover that the ego's drives for
self-gratification and self-assertion may be the major factors in preventing you from getting
what you want out of life. At this time the demands of the ego must be quieted at least a
little, so you can hear what the inner self is really saying.
Unfortunately there is another side to this influence, which you should watch for. Some
people develop a feeling of false happiness, like living in the dream world of an opium
smoker, with no basis in reality. You may feel that everything is all right when it is not,
or you may feel that you can do anything you want and get away with it. That is why this
influence is often associated with gambling or taking risks with limited resources, often with
disastrous results. This is not a very good time for investments, not because you will
necessarily lose out, but because you just won't know for sure, and you will be tempted to
gamble even when it is a poor risk. For the same reason, in business deals be sure you are
not the victim of a massive misrepresentation.
With this influence it is best to avoid purely selfish concerns, for when your actions are
thus motivated you are most likely to encounter its negative side.
Jupiter sextile Pluto: Your inner essence
Mid-December 2016 until end of August 2017: This is a time for making creative changes in your
life, for reforming and remolding your immediate surroundings so that they can better express
your inner essence. It is a time when you will exert considerable energy in order to gain
greater freedom of movement in all your activities. You may have the opportunity to gain
power over others, but if so, you should use this power to achieve what you and those around
you collectively need. Do not use it for purely selfish purposes, for this is not so likely
to work to your advantage.
If you gain power to lead others in any capacity, you must have the highest ideals in mind.
This influence symbolizes regeneration to a higher plane of existence, and although it may
express itself on several different levels, you should always keep this basic idea in mind.
Changes may occur spontaneously in the world around you with little or no effort on your part. Take advantage of them, for they will work toward your ends even though you did not originally intend that. You may come into favor with someone in power at this time. Sometimes a "regeneration" theme is expressed through religious or spiritual rebirth, through understanding the deeper significance of your life and having it transform your being. And you will do what you can to share your learning with others. Sharing everything that comes to you at this time is very important to you. Either this influence will transform you by transforming your surroundings, or you will become the vehicle through which your world is transformed. Either way, you are transformed along with your friends, neighbors and your everyday environment.
