EYE ON THE SKY: JUPITER DIRECT AUGUST 11TH.
The bright spot for the week is that Jupiter now is turning direct on Sunday, Oct 17th and will continue in Capricorn until Nov. 20th when it will move into Aquarius until April. Jupiter is very powerful in the sky when it is stationary a week before and after its stationary action and Donald Trump has a stationary Jupiter in his natal chart in the 2nd house in Virgo and creates great power for wealth.
Jupiter has a lot to do with marketing and expansion and delays in expanding and moving forward from the retograde action since last June will lifted in business so that things will happen more now even if the Saturn conjunction will try to slow it down a bit . If you are Sagittarius or Pisces rising or in a Jupiter period, this shift in energy will be felt dramatically.
Jupiter governs the higher mind, wisdom, religion, charity, good deeps, children, husbands and the kapha element (earth/water) in Ayurveda. Its movement forward now should improve all these things. Still there is a lot of background noise with Saturn in distress until mid-November so so put attention on higher wisdom, gratitude and charity to drown out Saturn.
Jupiter will trine the Sun exactly on Friday, Oct. 15th and this will expand optimism and confidence which is badly needed. It will also trine Mars exactly into Oct. 18th supporting athletics and our soldiers and police and fireman. They all need a bit of optimism with many jobs on the line if they choose not to get vaccinated.
