This placement gives us the impetus to look more deeply, or respect (re= again, spect=look; look again) into the dark.
Jupiter is about exploration and travel, and the Underworld is the terrain. Jupiter is about holiness, and the Scorpio is the burial ground. Jupiter is about opportunity, and Scorpio is about healing the deepest tramuas we've got. Jupiter is about new perspectives, and Scorpio is about intimacy.
Some people may suddenly be experiencing flashbacks of past violations that are held deep within the emotional and mental bodies. Scorpio is a water sign, and it has to do with the impressions that are made by events in our lives. Or in past lives. Or even in the lives of our ancestors. It runs that deep.
The past is as maleable as the future, though we tend not to see it that way. We have the sense that only the future is under our control, and we tend to live there. We also live in the past. But really, how do you know that there is anything but that which is happening right now? Where does the past exsist? Or the future? The only place you can find the past or the future is in the mind. The past changes based on what we believe about it. With Jupiter in Scorpio, new perspectives and information may emerge to change our sense of what happened in the past. The future and the past meet in the present, which is the only true place of power.
Jupiter is about belief, and traveling through Scorpio, he is going to help us get right with beliefs from the past that cause current suffering. Combined with Saturn's current clean-up in Sag, joined by Black Moon Lilith, we are getting the intensive workshop in who-we-are-vs-who-we-believe-that-we-are. It takes a lot of energy to keep believing something that isn't true! Our true nature is dying to come out to be seen in all her/his glory! It'll be a lot less exahusting, even if we lose a few "friends" in the process. We'll probabaly gain better ones anyway.
Remember that Jupiter is about abundance and gifts from the universe, and Scorpio is about orgasm! Sexuality is one of the best vehicles for creating expanded consciousness and well being. This is a of course a very complex topic that is beyond the scope of what I can write about here, involving many psychological, physical, emotional, social, spiritual and cultural dynamics. But that's whats amazing about Scorpio isnt it? Complexity and depth. Scorpio is about the complex connections bewteen the many aspects of ourselves that make up our sexuality. Jupiter in Scorpio is an opportunity to recognize (re= again, cognize= to think about) the distortion of taboo as holy once more.
So...what else is going on this week? Well, thank goodness Venus and Mars are getting out of range from their squares with Saturn. Ugh. That wasn't that cute this past week. We should get a few roadblocks cleared from here. That said, the Lovers are still within range of opposing Chiron, which is also not cute. Let's trot out a few wounds and get this Jupiter in Scorpio party started right!!! Haha! Well, Jupiter in Scorpio is going to bring in some pretty excellent stuff. So dont let this moment fool you into thinking its not going to be "good" as well. We just need to do the work to get the goodies.
Mercury joins Jupiter in Scorpio next Tues, getting us to look even deeper into the dark. And we have a New Moon in Libra to finish up Libra season and set up a new cycle. But we'll talk amore about that in the next report!
Happy Friday the 13th!
