Although we’re still in the process of some planetary retrogrades (reflective energy) we are beginning to receive a taste of 2019 energetic flow right now. It’s a very different flavour to 2018!
My recent blog ‘To What Do You Belong’ opened the door to some of the 2019 potentials; this blog adds impetus to that opening shift. And it’s being powerfully activated by the Sun today. What am I speaking of? Blessing-giver Jupiter’s entry into its own sign Sagittarius, where he expands our sense of optimism, life’s natural beneficence and joy through to late 2019. Glass overflowing anyone?
When a planet enters a new sign we receive an energetic nudge. It's a subtle shift in perspective or feeling that grows as the shift is activated and expanded by other planets. On 8 November Jupiter entered Sagittarius after a 12 month sojourn in deep watery Scorpio. Jupiter in Scorpio has been opening us to what’s hidden within us and our collective culture: secrets and lies, manipulation and power games. It’s been about turning inwards, acknowledging our most painful wounds so that we might release the power locked within them. Think about the #metoo campaign; that’s just one example of Jupiter in Scorpio. So turning to Jupiter newly arrived in his own sign, we have an emergence of different energy. It’s much like a deep-sea diver rising up from the cold dark depths into the sunlight. And he’s bringing gifts…Jupiter is the biggest planet in our Universe. All the other planets (not including the Sun, which is a star) will fit easily inside Jupiter. So in keeping with his size, Jupiter represents abundance. These next twelve months will see us making new connections to what that means in our lives.
