There is a tense long-term square between Jupiter and Pluto that’s starting to form together now that is extremely powerful. This is the first connection of three in a series, that runs all the way through August of 2017! And we have already witnessed what this powerful energy can do thus far.
Jupiter is about growth, expansion, excess, and benefits.
Pluto is about power, transformation, struggle, and obstacles.
With this connection, Jupiter is under great stress and is in a challenging connection with Pluto.
We actually just got out from under a long-term aspect between the Sun and powerful Pluto that played a big role in our lives through most of 2016! But it looks like Pluto is back once again and this time it’s challenging larger than life Jupiter. Even though the Election is over, Pluto’s influence brings about strong power struggles as we are experiencing now. Pluto rules over hidden agendas and often revenge. All the tension and arguing is living proof of just how this aspect is already affecting us and what it can do! There won’t be any easy solutions now. The United States and the World are under deep psychotherapy through August of 2017!
Pluto’s energy brings about a purging of the deeper, darker more negative side of humanity. So we are made to deal with our shadow-self under this influence, and the most difficult issues that we might be refusing to deal with or that have been kept repressed or hidden. This influence is now in our face and we haven’t a choice but to deal with these issues or suffer some consequences.
This influence actually does have a positive effect as well. It gives us the energy to chase our ambitions and make important changes to end things that aren’t working for us anymore. If you have any unfinished business or projects to wrap up, now is the time to get them done and completed.
Karma comes about quick and swiftly for those folks who have chosen to either misuse or abuse their power! The karmic debt will be paid by many, so it’s a good time to redeem yourself in some way if need be and make things right! Relationships and partnerships can also get hit pretty hard under this influence. There can be power struggles among lovers, family, close friends, and business partners. Some folks will have to deal with issues around money, joint resources, inheritances, and other people’s money.
The Jupiter/Pluto Square peaks on Thanksgiving Day, November 24th, so it’s important to be aware of just how powerful this connection is and how it might affect you. It will take a few weeks for this energy to sort of calm back down, but keep in mind it’s a long-term aspect, so whatever it starts will have to run its course. And then it will come back together again two more times through August of 2017!
*Cancer Sun Signs, pay attention!*
*Those born (June 21st – July 22nd) need to understand this connection can be a thorn in your side. You may have to stand up for yourself and what you truly believe in during this time. Anyone who is close to a Cancer might want to remind themselves that their crab maybe extra moody and tense during this time. If things get to be too overwhelming to deal with, take a step away and breathe! Allow them to do what they need to. You may have to give in a little with them for now, but if you care about them then it’s worth it! Right?*
Also take note that the United States is considered in astrology to be a Sun Sign Cancer! Wow huh! America is going through it now! First with all the election tension, and now continued with the one group who holds the most “Power” over the people, our government! It’s pretty evident that this country is under great strain and tension right now, no matter what side of the fence you are on, we all are experiencing this energy as a nation.
The Jupiter/Pluto Square can cause feelings of being blocked or restricted in some way. Folks can suddenly decide to block you from expanding your ideas or reaching your goals, during this cycle. Even though this can be a difficult time, there is another astrological connection that comes together just one week after Thanksgiving, involving Jupiter once again and authoritative Saturn. This influence ushers in a more positive energy that can help clean up some of the mess the Jupiter/Pluto Square has caused. In the meanwhile, through the end of November, there may be tensions in our relationships, as they can be tested quite strongly. Some will be faced with making very difficult decisions that require determination to get through. There can be just one person within a relationship who seems to give in and up, for the sake of keeping the relationship together in the long-run. Sacrifice and forgiveness are very important during this time.
No matter what part of your personal Astrology “Birth Chart” the Jupiter/Pluto Square is cruising through, it will affect some area of your life! The key to success is in the knowing of just which part, then you are better able to deal with whatever challenges might come your way.
