These two slow outer planets will be encouraging positive transformation. We may find we accumulate a new possession or two, or we may notice our bank accounts swelling. We may also be ready to invest our energies into transforming our lives. It will be a great time to work on getting rid of old habits and addictions.
Jupiter is the planet of good-luck and expansion, and Pluto rules death and rebirth (transformation). Jupiter will be traveling through Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn, so the focus will be in Earth signs. Earth signs like to keep things practical, and they love to negotiate business. It will be an excellent time for changes in business (or careers). It will also be a great time to quit smoking, lose weight, or make changes in other areas that relate to our health. But, we will probably want to look at our overall health that includes the body, mind, and spirit.
Jupiter and Pluto will also influence us as a community. Pluto rules rehabilitation, so there could quite possibly more enthusiasm about changing making some positive changes in our cities. We may find that business in general picks up. Our governments could also pass legislation to help the community.
Phase One – June 27th through July 19th, 2011 Normally Jupiter and Pluto bring a very positive experience, but their harmony may be subdued this time by Uranus at a Square to Pluto. (Uranus will turn retrograde before it makes a complete square to Pluto. This is just a little taste of what is yet to come in 2012.) Even though Jupiter and Pluto will be encouraging positive change, Uranus and Pluto could generate some unexpected tragedies at the same time. So, keep your head down, and don’t push your luck too hard.
Phase Two – October 16th through November 10th, 2011 This time, Jupiter will be in retrograde and crossing backwards to connect with Pluto again. Jupiter’s influence on Pluto may be more subtle this time, but the other 8 planets will be in harmony with this aspect. We should find that our optimism and our will power is strong, and hopefully the economy will get a little boost, too.
Phase Three – March 2nd through March 23rd, 2012 This will be Jupiter’s last pass with Pluto, but with Mars’ help, it will be a grand one! Jupiter and Pluto will begin the aspect on March 2nd, and we should notice pretty quickly that opportunities will manifest. Around the 10th of March, Mars will join Jupiter and Pluto to create a grand trine (the most positive aspect in astrology) in the Earth signs that will continue for the next 10 days. Wow! We haven’t had planets like this in years!
With Mars joining the aspect we should find that our energy has increased, and our motivation is strong. It will be an excellent period for work and achievement, and there may be some hot steamy romance in the air. We may just amaze ourselves, before this aspect has ended. Enjoy!
