Jupiter opposite Neptune is exact at 11:54 PM PDT tonight. Jupiter is wealth, expansion, philosophy, religion, and the law. Neptune is the principle of dissolution, receptivity, illusion, dreams, and compassion. An opposition invites projection and sometimes polarization. In the case of Jupiter opposite Neptune the expansive qualities of Jupiter can amplify Neptune’s inherent compassion into exalted idealism. There is, of course, a danger to this configuration. Neptune’s visionary quality may turn into just that, a vision only, an oasis glimpsed in the desert, but disappearing on closer inspection. Jupiter has a tendency towards exaggeration and the happiness perceived may be apparent only. Be cautious in engaging in speculations of all kinds with Jupiter opposite Neptune. Jupiter is in the earth sign of Virgo, so hopefully it will help ground the dreamlike qualities of Neptune and make your ideals more accessible.
Mercury moves Retrograde tomorrow and Saturn finally nudges into Sagittarius. Goodbye Saturn in Scorpio. I lost 50 pounds during your sojourn over my Ascendant and completely transformed my appearance through discipline and surrender. With Saturn in Sagittarius I am approaching my second Saturn Return over the next two years. I look forward to reporting on it and to helping younger people through their first one. I will be running a 25% off special in honor of Mercury Retrograde, particularly focused on looking and understanding the past. My favorite part of Mercury Retrograde is the way lost objects and people will often show up in our lives. It is always good to take a break in the hurtling forward motion of time to reflect on the past, or even on the present moment. Mercury Retrograde encourages the movement inward and backwards when it throws its obstacles in your path.
