So okay say you had Saturn whizzing along to square your, i don’t know, MOON – you’d kind of anticipate that to be a bit ick. I’d certainly say something. Even for Sagittarians in the Horoscopes now, it’s all about The Maturity, The Joy Of Being Accountable and all that.
But it can feel bizarre when Mr Good Time Transit turns screw on you. Only it’s surprisingly normal. An example. Jupiter on the Midheaven = promotion, flash new job, parade down the street etc, right? Well, maybe. But an amazing amount of people get the boot from a job or have a relationship disintegrate at warp speed during these transits.
And yes, six months later they’re all about the Eureka Flash that that job, relationship or whatever WAS a constriction or inauthentic. Hence along comes the “lucky” and “expansive” Jupiter transit and goodbye stale paradigm. It can be hard to see in the moment and really infuriating when you’re fantasizing about weird windfalls and ostentatious adulation.
BUT bear that in mind.
The other interesting scenario – that i touched on in Aquarius today – is when you ARE having a good transit but it does not quite feel good because you’re not getting it. For instance, often a Saturn transit or a Pluto-Mars scenario DOES empower you but it’s not like you strut about with people abasing themselves on the street before you, ancient style.
No way. It’s more like you suddenly look like you might have a clue already and everyone has their hand out wanting you to give them clues, advice, money, contacts, Qi etc. Which can even be over-whelming. If you take winning an Oscar as a classic example of “success”, this year’s best actors – Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, they were both having big-time Pluto-Saturn transits to the Sun-Mars. Forced growth.
The time-honored best way to “predict” how you’re going to respond/enjoy/endure astro-passages is by noting how that vibe works for you in general AND noting how similar transits have manifested in the past. If you’re natally strong Uranus-Venus and pretty much working that for an unconventional but cool and fulfilling love/art life, than a Uranus-Venus transit is going to affect you very differently from someone who is (say) natal Venus-Saturn and trying to hold their merde marriage together with blu-tac and wishful affirmations/power-whining.
Or it’s like how with Leos – Jupiter in Leo is not all venture capitalists trying to give them s-loads of cash, great hair and non-stop adoration. Jupiter RETRO (since December) is sending many Neo-Leos bats with wander-lust, lust-lust, restlessness and irritation at obstacles. But even THAT is part of the process. In fact, many a prosperous Jupiter enterprise starts with a tantrum about the tacky blinds, crap in the fridge, stupid boring rut and tedious anecdote that suddenly evokes a sudden onset existential crisis.
I don’t think there is any transit that comes on all lurid and indigo angelic tendrils sliding in under the door with magical free blessings because you’ve manifested the Awesome – unless you’ve been inhaling Love Zombie fumes whilst doing the Oujia board or something and that’s just when you decide to booze through a Neptune transit. Note: Bad idea.
Many strong, amazing evolutions, enterprises and relationships start weirdly and from a flare-up of electric psychic energy. You craft them into a coherent narrative a bit later.
Oh and this is a (sort of) long-winded answer to the person who emailed to ask if they should spend “all” their money on a Lottery ticket this weekend because the Moon is going to be near Jupiter. Short answer: Noooooooo.
