Sun Conjunct Jupiter 2015-08-26

This happens once a year, every year.  It is USUALLY a window of good fortune, and that is what we expect on this date.  However, a yod occurs earlier in the day, and your ability to take advantage of this may depend on the decision you made earlier, before this aspect perfects.  Furthermore, Jupiter is in “detriment”  in Virgo and not able to perform as strongly as usual.

We also note the presence of substantial 5th order harmonics (quintiles and biquintiles), and we should the chart filtered for those:

We note that the pattern we are describing has Mercury (communications and transportation) at the center (or apex) with Astraea (law and the legal system) on one side (or leg) and Pallas (innovation, particularly military innovation) on the other side (or leg).   Will be interesting to see what enters the news at this time.  Don’t be surprised to see that it involves a controversial technology that, once again, may be a further threat to our collective privacy.

On a personal level, this can be a very good time to launch a new project, particularly if you can finish it before the Full Moon perfects (August 29th) or, failing that, before the next New Moon (the Solar Eclipse of September 13th).

Jupiter Quincunx Neptune then Pluto

An interesting configuration is emerging for mid August through September: Jupiter enters into a Quincunx with Neptune on August 14th and then another Quincunx with Pluto on September 5th.  The Quincunx tends to be a frustrating aspect indicating miscommunications and false hopes.  Arguable, given that the fastest moving planet here is Jupiter, and that it takes a year to move through a sign, this pair of Quincunxes is actually a Yod.  Yods signal forks in the road where we must make a choice and will inevitably look back at the path we did not choose to take.

See, also:

If this is indeed a yod, and I believe it qualifies, it indicates one of the biggest decision making periods to face us (collectively) in years.  For many people, this period in August through September of 2014 will signal a major shift.  Even if it is not entirely visible now, in years to come many of us will see how critically important our decisions were in this period.  What follows are the two charts for the “exact” points of each of these aspects.  But, again, these are such large aspects that for individuals the triggers for the critical moments will almost certainly involve aspects of the Sun or Moon or both.

In all fairness, I should note that these aspects are followed by different versions of these same aspects later this year and in 2015.  The Jupiter / Neptune Quincunx repeats October 23, 2016, May 17, 2017, and July 4, 2017.   Jupiter / Pluto Quincunx first occurred (in this cycle) July 18, 2012, then Dec 20, 2012 (the rather famous Solstice), March 29, 2013, September 5, 2014, February 27, 2015, and May 21, 2015.  BUT, the FIRST PAIRING of these occurs August / September 2014.  (Hence, this is the critical period, followed by a few more chances to “change the road you’re on.” (to paraphrase Led Zeppelin))

For many of us as individuals, the critical decisions will involve career or family or both.  Collectively, one critical question is whether certain current skirmishes will be contained or grow into some “world war.”  Many of these questions are really but the tip of a much larger iceberg.

What really interests me is the question of when do the Jupiter BiQuintiles to these planets occur?  (BiQuintiles are excellent for creative work and innovation.)  As far as I can tell, however, the current version of Solar Fire (SF 8) cannot do an electional search for Quintiles / BiQuintiles.  (If I am wrong, somebody let me know how to do this.)  (Update 8/18: I have a solution now and plan to explore this in a later post.)

If you are reading this post some years in the future, say about 2020 or beyond, please try to avoid romancing the choice (or “road”) that you did not take at this time.  It was fraught with perils that are now invisible to you from your vantage point in the future.  Chances are good that you made the right decision, even if it proved to be a bit problematic.
