Your Jupiter Return And The Start Of A New 12 Year Cycle

26 Jan

carEvery 12 years or so, the lucky planet Jupiter makes his way back to the same spot he was in when you were born. Astrologers call this your Jupiter Return – since the planet is basically returning to his “home base.” I started following this cycle in people’s charts about a year ago because the transit was a curious one to me. It is a transit that gives me hope for people since Jupiter is lucky – but it also can reveal some other mysteries in our lives since I’ve seen various things – or rather personality traits come out at the beginning of the cycle. Interestingly enough – the universe is continually putting people in my path recently that are about to encounter this new 12 year cycle sometime in 2013. I’m excited and curious for all of them – including myself 😉

By the way, if you were born in 1953/54, 1965/66, 1977/78, 1989/90 or 2000/01 your Jupiter will be returning to its home base in your chart at some point in 2013. So, you too, will have your Jupiter return and begin a brand new 12 year cycle. It’s definitely something to look forward to since it typically denotes a period where you feel rejuvenated again. You tend to become “fresh” and ready for new things. I’m personally excited about it because my return will also happen this year.

Where ever Jupiter lives in your chart, he will give you a sign as to where this new “rejuvenation” will take place. It’s typically the beginning of something new and you tend to feel good and excited about things. Your outlook is positive and you feel like you are ready to grab whatever it is that you’re trying to reach.  However, there’s another side to my lucky friend that I’d like to share. In the beginning of my Astrology studies I was always excited by a Jupiter transit since he’s typically known as the “good-luck” planet. For the most part that’s true and I continually see him bring good fortune….. when he’s behaving. BUT – when he’s showing his unruly side, he can blow things up – including our egos and the way we perceive things.

Did you ever encounter someone who suddenly turned “egotisical” and started acting a little “too” confident? He or she likely aggravated you because of that uber-confidence. Now – I’m not saying anything is wrong with a little confidence but there are times when people can get a little too inflated if you catch my drift 😉 That expansion or blowing up of one’s confidence is an effect of the challenging side of Jupiter. He is the biggest planet after all – so it makes sense that his energy could affect our egos in this over-confident way.

However it ends up playing out the fortunate thing to look forward to is the beginning of something new. If you are affected, you can think back to all the things you’ve accomplished over the last 12 years and what you’d like to do in your next cycle. You’re in the completion phase and your engine of life is about to rev up! Enjoy your new 12 year ride – but just remember not to throw too much exhaust out of your engine 😉


Using Astrology To Figure Out Where You’ve Been & Where You Are Heading

21 Feb

Our personal Astrology holds many of the keys to understanding what your strengths and weaknesses are.  There is something in each of our charts called “The Moon’s Nodes” and the meaning of these is very helpful in figuring things out.  These important symbols are made up of the North Node and the South Node. Each is important and should be looked at in order to gain a better understanding of what YOU are about as well as WHY you are here.

The North Node shows us where you are headed or what your future entails.  It shows the purpose of our life and what we should ultimately be learning.  I always think of the North Node as a lucky spot in your chart as when it’s sparked in just the right way – it can help you along in your path creating some opportunity or help to get you to where your supposed to be. Following the path of your North Node will give you the most fulfillment out of life.

Now the South Node, on the other hand, is the exact opposite.  It shows what you’ve already mastered in past lifetimes and have brought with you here.  These skills, traits and insights are with you always and knowing this can help you tap into those valuable resources that you may forget you have.  However, it’s actually easiest for us to revert to our South Node ways as that’s what we know best. Sometimes we revert to these things a little too quickly and I’ll get to that in just a bit!

The Nodes can work as our very own personal advisors … and who doesn’t need that every once and again 😉 These special markers can give you the answer that so many of us ask which is “Why am I here?”  There placement can show you what you should pursue as well as what skills you’ve already developed that can ultimately help you attain your goals.

Some people, through fear or lack of motivation, pursue the easy way of their South Node – remember the South Node is what you’ve already mastered so it’s EASIEST for us.  Sticking with easy won’t give you fulfillment however. It’s when you pursue your North Node objectives that you truly can get the most out of life.

For a little fun – here’s as a quick look here’s some of the meanings of your North Node placements.  However, you have to remember that it’s very important to look at both the sign and house that your Nodes live in.  You have to blend the characteristics of each element in order to gain the most understanding.

North Node in Aries or the First House – South Node in Libra or the Seventh House
Your greatest growth will come from developing your own personality and power.  You’ve been too dependent on others in the past and now it’s time for you to shine on your own!

North Node in Taurus or the Second House – South Node in Scorpio or the Eighth House
Your greatest fulfillment will come through enjoying your possessions or pleasures.  In the past you’ve worked hard at helping others find their value and self worth and now is the time for you to enjoy them yourself!

North Node in Gemini or the Third House – South Node in Saggittarius or the Ninth House
Your greatest growth will come through mental stimulation or expressions.  In the past you might have been too emotional in your thinking and now is the time to be logical and rational.

North Node in Cancer or the Fourth House – South Node in Capricorn or the Tenth House
Your greatest fulfillment will come through taking care of your family and home.  In the past you may have been a work-aholic or focused too much on things outside of your family … now’s the time where you’re called to focus on your home life.

North Node in Leo or the Fifth House – South Node in Aquarius or the Eleventh House
Your greatest growth will come through being creative & gaining recognition.  In the past you may not have accepted approval or acknowledgement easily and now is the time for you to take it willingly.

North Node in Virgo or the Sixth House – South Node in Pisces or the Twelfth House
Your greatest fulfillment will come through your daily work or service to others.  In the past you may have focused on impractical matters and now is the time to be practical and set your fantasies aside.

North Node in Libra or the Seventh House – South Node in Aries or the First House
Your greatest growth will come through close and personal partnerships.  In the past you may have been a lone operater and perhaps too selfish to work with others.  Now is the time for you to learn how to compromise and cooperate.

North Node in Scorpio or the Eighth House – South Node in Taurus or the Second House
Your greatest fulfillment will come through giving up your wants for material possessions and helping others find their worth. In the past you may have been too attached your your wealth and pleasures.  Now is the time to for you to help others. 

North Node in Sagittarius or the Ninth House – South Node in Gemini or the Third House
Your greatest growth will come through obtaining higher knowledge.  In the past you may have been skeptical and now is your chance to soak up new ideas in order to have a broader view on the world.

North Node in Capricorn or the Third House – South Node in Cancer or the Fourth House
Your greatest fulfillment will come through your career.  In the past you may have led a very personal and closed existence and now is the time for you to shine in the public eye and put yourself in the limelight.

North Node in Aquarius or the Eleventh House – South Node in Leo or the Fifth House
Your greatest growth will come through helping society or special groups and organizations.  In the past you were too ego driven and now is the time for you to help the greater good rather than feed your ego.

North Node in Pisces or the Twelfth House – South Node in Virgo or the Sixth House
Your greatest fulfillment will come through helping others in a very profound way.  In the past you were a master of organization of your daily tasks and your own self-improvement. 

Remember your North Node is where you are heading and your South Node is where you’ve been.  Finding yours may help you get to the place where you’re ultimately supposed to be 😉

Astrology Can Reveal More Than Just The Future

18 Jan

Every Astrologer has their own system – or method that they use to gain insight on a person’s chart.  Over time, I’ve developed my own and the more I work with a person’s chart the more easily I can see how things may play out.  However, the thing I always tell everyone is that Astrology is not a Crystal Ball …. even though many of us wish it was!

Astrology is a system that you can utilize to gain insight on what makes you or somebody close to you tick.  It’s also very useful for gaining a little positivity – particularly when you’re caught up in a bad run. Timing is also something that Astrology can help you with.  It can reveal when the time is right for many things such as love and career opportunities. However – Astrology is something much bigger than all of that as it’s very much connected with your Psychology and the meaning behind things that are happening to you.   If you learn more about your own Astrology or get regular readings then you will be able to see that more clearly.

I’ll be honest and say that when most people approach me they are not looking to learn about the Psychology of what makes them tick – even though in the end they will walk away with that anyway.  Most people are looking for a little insight into the future as we all love to hear what’s coming up.  Many of us are quite eager to find out WHEN something … anything …. will find them!  Not many of us want to know when the challenges come … however you can’t have opportunity without challenges right?

Whenever somebody comes to me the first thing I do is grab my “Astrologer’s Tool Kit.” This is my imaginary bag of tricks that has all of my little methods that I can use to find something out for you.  I won’t bore you with the details of what’s inside my bag – but to be honest it is a little cluttery and there’s a lot of stuff in it 😉  For anybody that knows me in real life you know that I’m a total bag person and love a BIG bag to carry everything.

I’m the same when it comes to the future … I always need a lot of “stuff” handy as you just never know when you’ll need it!  I take my bag with me everywhere …. whether it’s visuals of your chart (I’ve got a pretty good photo-like memory when it comes to people’s charts) running around in my mind, planetary positions, my laptop (which runs my Astrology Software) or any one of the hundreds of Astrology books I use for reference.

I’ve actually recently incorporated my phone where I can run a chart quite easily … as I never know when I might get a call, text or email asking for some planetary answers.  People need answers quickly and I always try to have everything handy to help them.  Yes – people like to know what’s going to happen next but I think what they also need is a little encouragement because so many of us don’t get that throughout the day.  Encouragement is actually my favorite tool as there are just so many benefits to it.

The planets can reveal the future for you – but they can also give you something even greater than that.  They can inspire you to get through whatever you’re caught up in – in order to get to the next level.  If you know something good is coming up – then you’ve got your motivation to get through the hurdles.  Many of our perceptions are different when it comes to Astrology but the one thing I do want to share is that it’s not just about the future.  It’s about learning more about yourself and getting motivated to grab the opportunities that are waiting for you out there 😉

We’ve all got opportunities somewhere but the question is will you be able to find yours?
