When a planet enters a new sign it takes on the qualities and interests of that sign. It can be understood as a kind of archetypal renewal that gives rise to origin stories, carrying sparks of insight that unfold throughout the planet’s passage of the sign. These principles have been at work as October cradled Jupiter’s annual move into a new sign, Scorpio (October 10th).
Men are not free when they’re doing just what they like.
Men are only free when they’re doing what the deepest self likes.
And there is getting down to the deepest self! It takes some diving.
It seems we are surrounded by an ocean of sound and noise. Social and political concerns pull at us like the unyielding tide, and we navigate the news and what seems like daily incursions on freedoms and principles. We are living in a period of massive upheaval with breakdowns, breakthroughs, and revolution (Uranus) being empowered and compelled by underlying archetypal processes of change (Pluto). “Nobody told me there'd be days like these/Strange days indeed/most peculiar”. Thank you, John Lennon.
