Jupiter finally moves direct this week (on the 13th), and this mighty planet will have quite an impact on all of us! You may recall that he is one of a trio of planets that have been dancing around one another this year in Aquarius (the others being Chiron and Neptune). I have called this the Sacred Dance for many reasons.
Jupiter is the planet of expansion and growth, and for the past few months his energy has been internalised allowing each of us to explore the abundance within and to re-focus on our paths ahead. There is also a sense of spiritual re-awakening at the same time, and as Chiron and then Neptune move direct over the coming weeks, there will be a huge shift within so many of us. Akin to seeing the world with new eyes – our perspectives will change and shift, and we will let go of doubts and fears as we embrace the path of the warrior within to make our lives matter (on whatever level that might be).
The past couple of weeks have been stressful for many reasons – almost as though there is a pressure pot slowly building up inside and getting ready to burst out with lots of vim and vigour once Jupiter moves direct. This may sound unpleasant, but the pressure is connected to anticipation and excitement about exploring pastures new. We have been through a strange lull before a very beautiful and expansive storm that will allow those of us who are brave enough to leap into the unknown, to truly have faith and to stride forth with strength in our hearts and love in our eyes.
Jupiter is the big daddy of the Solar System, he is the spark within each of us that encourages us to explore, expand and embrace the new. He is the planet of wisdom and knowledge, and helps us to create abundance in our lives (although we must be specific about this, as abundance comes in many different packages, maybe joy would be a better word?).
As Jupiter moves direct, try sitting quietly for a short while and write down an affirmation (positive statement, written in the present tense) to say out loud every day between now and when Neptune moves direct in November. Say it loud, say it proud, and most of all, believe it. It could be as simple as ‘I love myself’, but try to make the effort to affirm how you want to move forwards in life and how you want your life to be – whilst you can’t always choose the outcome, you can choose the ‘filter’.
So, good luck and to ‘infinity and beyond!’…
Over the coming weeks, I will write more on the Sacred Dance as the energies start to flow out and across the world once again.
