Neptune is the ruler of the mystic and the psychic. He is sometimes called great humanitarian, because Neptune encourages us to help the less fortunate. Jupiter is the amplifier of the Zodiac, and he likes to expand everything he touches. These two planets will be singing in harmony for a few weeks, and we may find that our world becomes more spiritual, creative, and compassionate.
Neptune and Jupiter are rather slow planets. So, their aspects don’t occur very often, and they usually last a few weeks. The last time Jupiter and Neptune were sextile was Fall of 2007. Also, when an outer planet (Jupiter and out) aspects another outer planet, it will affect us more as a community rather than individually. Outer planetary aspects will affect us more on a subconscious level.
We may notice that people in general are more cooperative. If we are looking for public assistance, we should find that resources are available. Jupiter and Neptune could affect us on a spiritual level. We may find that our intuitions are sharper, and our connections to the divine will feel closer. Neptune loves the arts, so this would be an excellent time for any kind of creative projects. We may also find the romance in our lives is a little more lively.
Hopefully our governments will use this time to recognize its constituents and their wishes. Any kind of humanitarian aid projects, domestic and abroad, should do well during Jupiter’s and Neptune’s journey. Perhaps our leaders will take the initiative to reduce the oil company’s profits and lower our costs at the gas pumps? This would be an excellent time.
Jupiter and Neptune will be on the cusps during this aspect, with Neptune sitting between Aquarius and Pisces and Jupiter between Aries and Taurus. Pisces, Aries, Taurus, and Sagittarius may find this aspect especially inspirational. But, all of us should notice that our hearts are lighter and our creative genes are flourishing.
