“History says, don’t hope
On this side of the grave.
But then, once in a lifetime
The longed-for tidal wave
Of justice can rise up,
And hope and history rhyme.
So hope for a great sea-change
On the far side of revenge.
Believe that a farther shore
Is reachable from here.
Believe in miracles
And cures and healing wells.” Seamus Heaney
Jupiter and Neptune are forming a very close alignment now – a quincunx. This 150 degree aspect calls for the constant need for adjustment. This duo together can indicate a need to keep grounded and pragmatic about dreams, hopes and visionary endeavors. And as the gifted astrologer and writer Eric Francis has noted – clarity is key. This aspect will remain in influence throughout most of the summer. During this time-frame, clarity – and the process of working towards clarity – will remain very helpful navigational tools.
These two planets can be asscociated with the tendency towards overly inflated dreams, projections (believing someone is who you want them to be rather than who they are) and pourous boundaries. Best not to go with assumptions about what something means or what something means to someone else in agreements. Make it very clear.
Jupiter and Neptune both are concerned also with religion, philosophy and spirituality. It is wise to observe a code of conduct. Despite whatever swirls around us in this sometimes contentious and uncertain time, it bodes well to maintain a positive or hopeful view or the planet’s future as well as the good will (within safe boundaries ) towards others that will eventually help to create it.
The Dark Moon Lilith is prominent in the sky now as well at 12 degrees of Sagittarius. We are living in a time of great change when -as with the 60s – the personal has become political once again and the possibility of conflict arising suddenly over differing or polarized views is on the table. Instances of this kind of thing have been widely reported in the press with close and long term friendships as well as marriages coming suddenly to an end over the inability to reconcile differences.
The Dark Moon Lillith can often stir up trouble or a crisis in order to create a void out of which something new may emerge.
One of the Sabian symbols for Dark Moon Lillith’s placement now is, “In the left section of an archaic temple, a lamp burns in a container shaped like a human body.’
