Scanning The Stars – Bright Jupiter

Scanning The Stars – Bright Jupiter

 

Bright Jupiter from mid-evening until dawn all month. Jupiter – the second-brightest planet after Venus – rises in the east at roughly 8 p.m. in early January and 6 p.m. by the end of the month. But Venus sets at early evening, so Jupiter lords over the nighttime from mid-evening till dawn.
Once Jupiter rises over the eastern horizon, it’s unmistakable. This world shines more brilliantly than any star.
Be sure to watch for Jupiter adorning the eastern sky on these January 2015 evenings. Earth is speeding toward Jupiter, so Jupiter will continually rise earlier and earlier in the evening all month long. Earth, in its smaller and speedier orbit around the sun, will catch up with Jupiter on February 6, 2015. At that juncture, Jupiter will be out all night long, shining from sundown to sunup.

MAGICKAL APPLICATIONS FOR THURSDAY


Fantasy Comments & Graphics

MAGICKAL APPLICATIONS FOR THURSDAY

 

Thursday comes from the Latin Dies Iovis, which means “Jove’s day” Jove, or Jupiter as he was sometimes called, was the supreme god and patron of the ancient Romans. Jove/Jupiter is associated with wealth, leadership, thunder, and lightning. A lord of heaven, Jove/Jupiter was also a god of light, and his sacred color is white. In the Greek mythologies, this deity was known as Zeus. This fifth day of our bewitching week was eventually turned into the Old English Thursdaeg or Thunresdaeg, which translates to “thunder’s day” or, more simply, “Thor’s day.” This day of the week is named after Thor, the popular Norse god of thunder. Thor was the son of Odin. He carried a war hammer called Mjollnir, and it was this that made the thunder and lightning. All of these Thursday gods-Jupiter/Jove, Zeus, and Thor-were wielders of the thunderbolt.

Thursday has the planetary association of Jupiter, and this day of the week is associated with prosperity, abundance, leadership, and good health. Prosperity and abundance are the typical magickal concerns on a Thursday. However, the way people define prosperity can vary greatly between individuals.

Personally, I think prosperity and abundance aren’t about owning the biggest house, fanciest wardrobe, or the newest car. It’s about living within your means and living well. My definition of prosperity is having enough money in the checking account to cover the bills and to pay for the groceries; anything left over is gravy.

But with a family, there is always something. Just about the time you’re feeling confident, something pops up. Somebody has to go to the doctor or the dentist, or someone needs work done on their car. Or my daughter calls from college with the classic “send money” request. It’s enough to drive me bonkers! For instance, just this past month, I got hit up for sorority dues, book fees, dentist bills, a bit of car repair and, lest we forget, living money for my daughter while she is away at school. Ouch!

The aspiration to make your budget stretch and to find ways to cover extra expenses is a real need for just about everybody. So on this bewitching day, let’s look at some practical, magickal ways to increase your prosperity and try out a few enchanting ideas designed to create a little abundance and, last but not least good health.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for January 18th

Compared to tomorrow — when a new blend of cosmic shenanigans is about to inundate humanity — today feels fairly exuberant and free from excess stress and strain. At 4:00AM — just five minutes before the void Moon in Sagittarius shifts into earthy Capricorn territory (4:05AM) — Mercury forms a contra-parallel to Jupiter. Mercury and Jupiter in any aspect have an influence over communications, educational endeavors, and travel plans because they have always ruled Gemini and Virgo (Mercury), Sagittarius and Pisces (Jupiter). Before the discovery of Neptune in 1846, astrologers always knew that Jupiter ruled both Sagittarius and Pisces. Over the last 168+ years, some astrologers have decided that Neptune rules over Pisces, but this kind of rulership is much more general than specific, and Jupiter is still in charge of the mainstream of Piscean activities and affairs. Hopefully, this morning’s contra-parallel by Mercury and Jupiter behaves more like a Full-Moon illumination than an obstacle to taking a couple of giant steps forward in your main fields of expertise. The Moon entering earthy, industrious Capricorn (4:05AM) is akin to a flashing neon light — pointing you upward to taking the express elevator to the executive penthouse. Being the top dog or cream of the crop relative to your ambitions is personally and subconsciously a key theme of the lunar orb’s presence every month in this zodiacal sign of hard work, determination, and responsibility. The lunar orb uniting with Ceres (10:52AM) not only gives you a boost for all-around productivity, but it also strengthens your parenting skills and gives you extra insight in dietary and nutritional matters. Tweak a 45-degree contact between Venus and Ceres (1:29PM) to reinforce your nurturing-comforting touch rather than to upset it. Improvise with a favorite musical instrument or try out new dance steps with an eager partner as the Moon forms a supportive, 60-degree liaison with imaginative Neptune (1:53PM). Be aware that the dark-of-the-moon or Balsamic Phase of Sun and Moon is increasing in its mysterious potency today and particularly tomorrow.

Daily Planet Tracker: Jupiter in Leo, Now to Aug 11, 2015

Planet Tracker

Jupiter in Leo

Now to Aug 11, 2015

 

Jupiter is the largest of all the true planets. Its mass is greater than all the rest of the planets combined. If it was only 20% larger it would develop enough heat at its core to be a star. Astrologically, Jupiter is the planet of expansion, growth and optimism. Known as “The Greater Benefic,” it symbolizes good luck and forutne. In the ancient Indian language Sanskrit Jupiter is called “guru” or teacher. This fits its association with the higher mind, philosophy, truth and religion. Perhaps Jupiter’s good fortune derives from the capacity to give us a larger view in which to see the world.

Leo is a sign of individual expression and creativity. Jupiter’s presence here can emphasize the power of one person to make a statement that will be heard by the world. The capacity to get the world stand up and take notice is likely to be expanded during this time. Jupiter’s pursuit of meaning can be enhanced by personal risk and an opening of the heart, with which Leo is associated.

The negative side, however, can be excessive glorification of the ego. Pride in self is healthy, but boundless pride is a blinding light that darkens, rather than illuminates. This can be a time of “bread and circuses,” when meaningful questions are buried in the noise of spectable. Serious inquiry may not come easily when bombast rules the land.

Appropriately, big-time film-makers George Lucas, Federico Fellini, Dino De Laurentis and Penny Marshall were born with Jupiter in Leo. Stars Elizabeth Taylor, Peter O’Toole, Robert DeNiro, Catherine Deneuve, Willem Dafoe, Bette Davis, Geena Davis, Anne Bancroft and Pamela Anderson are also part of this group. Singers Diana Ross, Celine Dion, Mick Jagger, Roger Daltry, Johnny Cash and Joe Cocker certainly fit the Jupiter in Leo profile, as do guitarists Jimmy Page and Keith Richards.

Spirituality, sports and politics have their share of grand Jupiter in Leo figures. Pope John Paul II and Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh used considerable media savvy to lead their respective flocks. Billie Jean King, Arthur Ashe and Joe Montana were very different, but equally inspiring athletes. The political stage has been occupied by a diverse group of Jupiter in Leo folks, including Angela Davis, Eleanor Roosevelt, Mario Cuomo, Pierre Trudeau, George Wallace, Donald Rumsfeld and Juan and Eva Peron. Big bucks and big ideas include another diverse group of people born with Jupiter in Leo: Bill Gates, Carlo Benetton, Simone de Beauvoir, Ray Bradbury and Rudoph Steiner.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Thursday, Jan. 15th

Mars has been playing its frequent outlaw-oriented cosmic role now since New Year’s Day when the red planet opposed King of the Gods benefactor-in-chief Jupiter. Last Friday and Saturday, Mars exchanged stellar darts with Uranus and Pluto by stepping on their current zodiacal midpoint in the heavens — thereby angering both Titans of the outer-reaches of our solar system. Yesterday Mars picked a 90-degree fight with its fellow malefic planet — Saturn — as stipulated by medieval and ancient astrologers who didn’t know of the existence of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto (all of whom have the capacity to stir up gigantic earthly troubles). Meanwhile, Mars is now trying to make us believe he is a friendly fellow by stepping off the accelerator pedal in his rivalry with Saturn, but the truth is that Mars is only going to gather its reserve strength to converge with idealistic, visionary, and dream-enchanting Neptune on Monday January 19. You may want to see today as a waiting game under a Scorpio Moon compromised by its square pattern with Jupiter in Leo (6:30AM). While Mercury cozies up to Saturn via an inspirational, 72-degree link (1:51PM and offering some possible gains on the business front) and the Moon aligns favorably in a supportive, 60-degree alliance with the Sun (3:53PM), this latter sky configuration also begins a void lunar cycle that continues until 12:02AM on Friday morning when fiery Sagittarius grabs the lunar baton for a 2-day jaunt through the ninth sign of the zodiac. The monthly lunar shift from Scorpio to Sagittarius can be one of the most emotionally-draining of Moon transfers from sign to sign during every 27.3-day lunar orbit through the zodiac. Therefore, know where you are going and what you are doing to avoid creating any unnecessary detours on your road to eventual worldly accolades and achievements.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Sunday, January 11th

We might be resistant to the amount of concentration that’s needed to follow through on our commitments today. We are prone to making errors in judgment now that the Sun forms an irritating aspect to opinionated Jupiter, since this anxious alignment indicates difficulties in maintaining our sense of proportion. Thankfully, the Moon enters Libra, the Scales, at 6:56 am EST reminding us that balance is possible, even in these dynamic times.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Expressing your relationship goals clearly is crucial today, but your personal needs may be at odds with what is expected of you. Finding common ground in this particular conflict is challenging because your obligations make it difficult to follow your heart. Nevertheless, don’t give up by denying your feelings; you will ultimately have more choices if you state your truth — contradictions and all — instead of trying to avoid it. There is no substitute for honest communication when it comes to love.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may be running around in circles as you go from one activity to another today, even if you intend to finish everything you start. Your plan is to complete each job, but you’re easily distracted by the variety of unexplored paths in front of you. Don’t be too concerned about how much you accomplish now. Getting a handle on your reluctance to change could be more powerful than proving your ability to be productive. Expanding your horizons might make you nervous at first, but it’s time to spread your wings and fly.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You are eagerly anticipating the rising energy of the day, but a bit of unexpected turbulence can make it tricky to surf the incoming cosmic waves. Instead of complaining about the intensity of the rough waters, shift your perspective and embrace the next round of excitement into your life. It’s really not necessary to find lasting solutions to any of the problems that now pop up. You’re better off navigating your way as if this is a temporary situation, instead of assuming that it’s a permanent part of your life. Your positive attitude makes all the difference in the world.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You’re so intensely focused on maintaining harmony in your relationships now that it’s challenging to see what’s around the next corner. But even if you attempt to ignore your current feelings of uncertainty, you won’t be able to do so for long. Your eyes are big and wide open today, and once you realize what is behind the curtain, you want others to see it, too. But don’t wait until an uncomfortable situation becomes too overwhelming to handle. Bring what you know out into the light as soon as you learn the truth. Awareness is your secret to success.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Playing other people’s games according to their arbitrary rules was acceptable for a while, but you are driven to add your critical opinion to the situation now. Your friends might expect you to continue in the same old manner, but you are motivated to clarify confusing boundaries so you can reestablish your authority today. Overreacting isn’t useful, but neither can you stay quiet. Ultimately, it’s wise to just let others know exactly what you need and let the chips fall as they may.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It could take several more days for relationship dynamics to settle down, so it still makes sense to stir up the energy now to see where it goes. Conflicts that escalate today are symptoms of deeper material issues that are not yet resolved. You can probably talk yourself into believing almost anything that ends well. Nevertheless, you will be happier if you prepare to readjust your thinking if a reality check points to a different conclusion. Hope for the best but keep a backup plan in your pocket just in case.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your emotions are very close to the surface today as the reflective Moon returns to your sign. Nevertheless, turning feelings into decisive action is a daunting task. Your moods shift often and every single thought you have brings up another feeling that is different from the last. Someone may attempt to force you to make a choice, but it isn’t necessary yet. Wait a few more days before deciding what to do. In the meantime, enjoy riding the highs and lows without getting trapped by either extreme.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Gently floating downstream in the flow of your feelings sounds idyllic today, but each time you begin to get comfortable, practical thoughts wake you from your pleasant reverie. You may grow increasingly aware that the real events in your daily life must take precedence over everything else. It grows tougher to land yourself back on solid earth, yet this is exactly what is needed to make the most of this auspicious time.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might actually think your current solution to a lingering problem is a fair and sensible one. However, it’s not very wise to move too quickly today, for you could change your mind a few more times before you settle on one particular answer. Be careful; your inflated sense of urgency may deceive you into acting impulsively. Count to ten and then count again before making your move.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Although you desperately want to excel at your current efforts, you don’t have to do it at someone else’s expense. The Moon’s shift into your 10th House of Status demands that you consider the needs of others if you want to be an effective leader. Climbing over those around you to climb the ladder of success will ultimately serve no one at all. You can gain more authority now by tuning in to the group consciousness and acting for the good of all.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You could come across with more confidence than you actually feel now that the calculating Capricorn Sun forms an imbalanced alignment with effusive Jupiter. Although you may be projecting your biases, you’re ready to change your mind on a moment’s notice if you are offered facts that cut through your defenses. But your apparent bravado can be a deterrent if it scares others away from sharing their ideas with you. Soften your assertive stance to make room for a meaningful dialogue with those you love.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

A complex partnership that was initially based upon equality can temporarily encounter uncomfortable dynamics today, especially if someone exerts pressure on you. Unfortunately, your partner might be sinking deeper into the relationship just as you are withdrawing into your own private world. Show some foresight with an objective approach that rebuilds trust. Paradoxically, you might have to step back before making a long-term commitment. Fostering your independence now increases the potential for a closer relationship in the future.
