Jupiter, the North Node and Pluto

“Sooner or later something seems to call us onto a particular path… this is what I must do, this is what I’ve got to have. This is who I am.” James Hillman
This week the Sun/Venus conjunction in Gemini has been squaring the Lunar Nodes of life path and destiny. This represents an important crossroads on your life’s journey – a time to choose whether you are going to go forward the as you have been doing or whether you are going to proceed according to a deeper, more authentic calling. With Pluto aligned favorably with Jupiter and the North Node there is an expansive opportunity at hand to see your life path more clearly and to have a new depth of perception of what has held you back and what needs to change. These perceptions can come at random times so it is best to provide extra down time to increase the recognition and build awareness and commitment as you move forward.
Eris is aligned with Uranus – the Great Awakener – now. This is one of several symbols of the revolutionary times in which we are living. The revolution has an inner and outer component to it – we see it in societies globally as well as individual dynamics. There is a strong desire for change and transformation. Do be aware of parts of your thinking that have kept you in an unproductive holding pattern and limited your possibilities for too long. These can fall away now due to the opportunity for deeper perception and the ability to see a clearer path ahead.
“Taking time is what is so difficult. Our cultural upbringing teaches us to plan and run as fast as we can towards our goals. It is our very running that takes us away from our depths of feeling.” Marion Woodman

On Chiron, Neptune and Thanksgiving

Developing more awareness and compassion for the adversities of others and working to alleviate it in some small part as individuals is indicated by the spiritually orientated conjunction of Chiron and Neptune in influence now. Synchronicity can play a strong hand in events.

I have a friend who is from a large farm family and one of their traditions is that shortly before Thanksgiving they all attend a bingo fundraising event that benefits local families in need.

This year the family winnings included nine turkeys and four hams which they decided to donate to the Food Pantry. It was an odd hour (there was no room to store the turkeys and hams in anyone’s freezer after the event) and they were hoping someone would be at the food pantry when they arrived. They knocked and knocked and finally a tired, worried looking woman came to the door. She was quite surprised – caught off guard -when they told her about the nature of their visit and the contents in the back of their truck.

She said, “I was just about to leave to go to the supermarkets to beg for Thanksgiving turkeys for our families. We are nine turkeys short. We had a few families that wanted hams but I was just about to call and tell them they would have to have turkeys instead.”

After relaying the story to me my friend said, “I don’t really care that much about celebrating Thanksgiving but I am glad when I can do something productive.”
