Eight of Cups + Jupiter in Virgo + What Now?

"jupiter in the 12th house"Discussing the Eight of Cups in the chat room and a private conversation ensued:

once one is liberated from a terrible condition (sickness, another person, prison, memories, etc.) THEN WHAT?

How long does it take until you are doing more than… paying the rent and not looking over your shoulder.

She said to me she was excited to see what I would be doing (with my life/work I assume) now that I am liberated and I felt…

What I felt was… my difficult transits. I felt the desire to maintain. I could feel myself looking over my shoulder.

But knowing that Jupiter is transiting my 1st House, there must be MORE.

I tend to despise the typical conversation-starting-here-is-the-question-at-end-of-the-blog-post-moment but HERE is the question at the end of the blog post moment:

Where is Jupiter transiting for you? And are you getting more there?

Trust No One: Pluto Opposition Sun

"pluto opposition sun" When Pluto opposes your Sun, you become the criminal.

So the question becomes: how do you act, behave, now?

You must get smart. Do you have to become a “bad” person? Not exactly. But you do have to change. Acknowledge your shadow but it’s more than simple acknowledgement.

You can’t behave in the same ways. You can’t continue to be so open. Study the manipulative people in your life. They’ll show you how it’s done. Things you’d never dream of doing. I don’t mean to break your own ethics or morality. Or am I? You have to blend your sweet Sun sign with a killer (instinct) now to prevent being destroyed. You will be falsely accused and you’ll have to figure out how to precede, case by case.

And yes there will be even more ethical questions when Jupiter is in Virgo trining Pluto in Capricorn making things “easier.”

You may be asked to lie, to bear falsely, to play the game, to see the criminal in you, to play the game, the very games you despise and you good boys and girls may have a hard time with this, a very hard time with this OR you may discover it’s not hard for you at all (which may be shocking).

Because Pluto is not about justice. Pluto is about power. Learn from the people around you who get what they want with minimal effort. They usually are getting it on someone’s back. There is some work they are not doing. Someone is being used. Someone is making it easier for them.

Up until now it’s been child’s play… in terms of the person you need to become.

Drink Up From Your Eight Of Cups (Full Moon Eclipse In Libra)

"full moon eclipse in libra" I just drew a few cards for someone. It’s a regular weekend thing I do, the Weekly Tarot (click here for info and scroll down) and one of her cards was the Eight of Cups so I suggested a Tashlich type ritual for her because the Eight of Cups woman is walking away.

From Wikipedia:

The Zohar, the most important book of Jewish mysticism, states that “whatever falls into the deep is lost forever.”

I suggested water, a water ritual, casting into the sea.

You can Google Tashlich on your own, but know this:

the prison in which you find yourself, of your own making, of their making, it is not the place for you, not now, not anymore.

"full moon eclipse in libra"
Full Moon Eclipse in Libra
allows us to leave “partnerships” that are confining. Partnerships that are WRONG. This word “partnership,” long associated with Libra and 7th House can refer to ANY person place or thing or habit of mind you find yourself mixed up in that no longer fits you.

With every ending comes a beginning because space is created, a lack, an opening to be filled. Or can we just, temporarily, or as long as we choose, leave the space unfilled because that also is okay. Not rush to stuff it with junk food for the soul. Why do we rush? We rush to fill the lack because the hole, the space, contains a scream, terror, that we feel we are not permitted to voice or hear.

For the moment this scream is the Uranus Pluto square aspecting the Full Moon in Libra. The dastardly bastardly dynamic duo are separating yes, the last square is complete yes but they are tightly wound together still and making a mockery of Libra’s peace equanimity.

You think you got pretty? You think you got nice? You think you got fair? Ha! Instead (the Eclipse says) I shall bring you URANUS MOON (crazy up and down the scales crazy music, atonal, reversed Two of Cups) and PLUTO MOON (emotional intensity, reactivity, volcanic, atomic, cutting).

Be kind to yourself. The world out there is hard enough. Be kind.

Weekend TAROT Forecast And Why You Need The Goddess

Why am I doing a short course on the Goddess Asteroids?

Because I got obsessed while I was giving over my thoughts on VENUS in the Mars and Venus class and it felt complimentary to me – MORE female power to talk about.

Especially helpful if your Venus is stressed because hey you may have a vivacious Vesta ;) or  an ab fab Athena! Don’t let  bothersome ideas of Venus and how women are “supposed to be” limit your expression in the world.

And the last time I talked about the Goddess Asteroids was last year I think, in the first astro class I did. The grief and possessiveness of Ceres. The dedication and concentration of Vesta. The wisdom and courage of Pallas Athena. And Juno. I am remembering now that the Juno story (the faithful wife) was the most mysterious to me… I look forward to revisiting these ladies.

THIS WEEKEND:

Saturday: Moon in vulnerable Cancer making all kinds of aspects. Is there someone you want to open up to? Moon will conjoin Jupiter and oppose Pluto (among other goodies). Big emotions and possible dramarama BUT… I say go for it. Heart on sleeve and all. Tarot says? THREE OF WANDS. Put it out there. See what comes back to you.

Sunday: SUN (in Leo) TRINE URANUS and Moon conjunct Mercury. TAKE A CHANCE. You are a brilliant idea. And ooooh enigmatic energy here EIGHT OF CUPS. Yes, THE DECISION IS FINAL. Take a bow. What comes to an end for you, shortly before the New Moon?

Got questions about this, the class, or the NEW MOON IN LEO? Look here! And here for info about Readings.
