Jupiter is conjunct the Sun on Monday, Sept. 26th. This aspect has been ignored a bit with so much going on but. For Leos and this Sunday, the energy will be very high and charged with wisdom and confidence and enthusiasm and expansion and comfort as the Sun will take on the energy of Jupiter and they are friends and the Sun is uplifted. Still for Jupiter, and Pisces and Sagittarius rising, it is not a great thing. Combustion is one of the biggest afflictions for planets that really is not talked about enough as combust planets are burnt up and their significations are hurt. The Jupiter combustion creates false optimism which can feel great but then reality can set in after all the false hopes. Saturn moving toward full Rahu aspect into Oct. 9th is creating a lot of reality checks anyway– but the false hope is so much more fun until things that are expected do not manifest. I always remember the Islamic proverb: Pray to Allah but tie your camel. Balance hope and spirituality with practicality and Jupiter in Virgo is calling us to do that.
Make practical decisions the next few weeks and stay out of the Pisces cloud of optimism. Jupiter governs the liver and it may be afflicted these next few weeks so drink fresh organic squeezed lemon in some hot water in the morning to get that liver moving. All forms of the twist in hatha yoga support the liver and help squeeze out toxins. You may need to do the cowface pose (Gomukhasana) to energize the liver over the next few week. The good thing about the conjunction is that those ruled by the Sun are energized greatly by Jupiter‘s exalted warmth and this may help leadership and self-confidence. All of this is taking place in the Sun’s nakshatra of Uttara Phalguni so overall, solar energy is enhanced with wisdom and Virgo’s practical nature will give it a bit of a lift. Time to get real now!
