Sun Trine Jupiter 2016-01-12

We should talk.  Sun Trine Jupiter is typically considered a benevolent aspect.  (We note that modern astrologers typically see Jupiter as a benefic whereas traditionalists tend to consider it a malefic.  In any case, opinions vary.  We consider it a benefic, meaning that it confers benefit.  In reality, it is an “amplifier” that brings more of whatever it is pointed towards.)

That said, a few considerations are worth noting.  First, Mercury is retrograde.  This is not necessarily “bad,” but it does require an attention to detail.  It is most useful for resurrect projects previously on hold, or double checking details, proofreading, or editing.

Next, Jupiter is, itself, retrograde.  While Mercury Retrograde is well understood (we experience it several times a year), this is not as true with Jupiter Retrograde.  It occurs less frequently and lasts longer.  It is more subtle.  But, as so many others do, we will give you the standard textbook treatment of the topic: Jupiter Retrograde involves problems or revisiting issues involving the legal system, higher education, or “long distance travel.”  (What is “long distance travel”?  If you rarely range more than 10 to 15 miles from home, then “long distance travel” might involve a trip to a nearby city or area a few hundred miles away.  If you are a long distance trucker who ranges much of the continent, then it may involve an overseas trip.)  In general, interpreting outer planet retrogrades is tricky because of the longer durations of the retrogrades.  They tend to govern generations more than individuals.

Additionally, Jupiter is in Virgo.  Per the traditionalists, this means it is in “detriment.”  We agree that, in some cases, this is worth noting.  We think it is worth noting here.

We might add that Capricorn is not a particularly strong placement for the Sun.

So, we advise caution with this particular Sun Trine Jupiter aspect.  This tends to be a “nose to the grindstone” aspect.  The Sun is ordinarily bright and, well, sunny.  Jupiter can be downright gleeful.  (OK, we know Stalin was a Sagittarius.  But he was the exception that tended to prove the rule.  Think Frank Sinatra instead.  He tended to be a bit more upbeat most of the time.  “My Way” is a very Jupiter song.)  In these placements, this is all about work and getting things done.  Do your homework and stick to business most of the day (you can play some, also, but get the important things done).

We also note that what you do, or do not, get done will come back in some form of “karma” on or about January 27th, after Mercury is direct and when Sun Sesquiquadrates Jupiter.  Your decisions, and actions, matter today.

Here is the chart for perfection of Sun Trine Jupiter, filtered for the ongoing, month-long Thor’s Hammer:
