Jupiter is in Aries. You Are Here.

Jupiter entered Aries yesterday morning at 11:11 a.m. CT. Yeah, yeah. 11:11. CENTRAL time only, y'all. So I guess only those of us on Central Time are the Jupiter in Aries chosen ones?

We emerged yesterday from another layer of tail-end Piscean era with the big one yet to come March 11 - Uranus re-entering Aries.

Today, the Moon enters Libra at 5:59 p.m. and makes the very first aspect to Jupiter re-planting its flag in Aries. (Jupiter was in Aries June 5 to September 8, 2010 before retrograding back into Pisces.) This inaugural aspect is an opposition, exact at 6:22 p.m. A fresh new line is drawn. 'You are here.' And where you are has a lot of possibility that was not available - was not ready - when Jupiter was in Pisces.

At the same time, it's challenging as we work the balance between our expanding individuality and emerging personal directions (Jupiter in Aries) and the relationships and relationship dynamics that serve as our emotional anchors (Moon in Libra). Being ourselves 100%, honouring the feisty Aries fire spurring us on while also working together without stepping on anyone's toes. It's a delicate balance.

All morning and afternoon, the Moon is in late Virgo, opposing Uranus in Pisces and conjuncting Juno, just stationed retrograde at 29 Virgo.

Emotionally, we're reconciling the past two years - two quite traumatic years for many - as we see-sawed between disorienting Uranus in Pisces shocks to the collective
system and crushing Saturn in Virgo depression and lethargy during the opposition cycle between those two planets. Now, that is mostly impression, recovering energetically from the aftermath.

As the Moon enters Libra and opposes Jupiter, we can feel that we are on new ground - whatever it will bring.

And yet, it's not all fresh starts and blazing exciting new trails. The Moon continues through Libra into a square with Pluto early tomorrow morning, and we're made aware of the broader Plutonic circumstances uneasily simmering beneath the surface.

For the past two years, we have also experienced the Pluto in Capricorn wrecking ball laying waste to financial and employment structures while consolidating power at the top in fewer and fewer hands.

We are heading to a Jupiter in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn February 25, and our propulsion forward is met with the resistance of behemoth and often traumatic structural change and lock-step movement toward corporate homogenity. Our fresh starts strain at the reins against some heavy and pressurized collective circumstances on this planet.

Nonetheless, daylight has broken here - at least on one layer. And we ready ourselves for motion.

Bruised and battered but back on shore pulling the seaweed from my eyes. Thanks for tending the lighthouse fire.
