“The wind and waves are always on the side of the ablest navigator.” Edward Gibbon
Once I was reading an article in a Jungian journal about the inter-generational influence of traumatic experiences – how the traumatic wounding of people in one generation gets passed down. This is in line with shamanic teachings which refer to these issues as generational curses.
We are at a threshold time now as the Sun moves into Scorpio today and Mercury follows on Monday. This ushers in a deeper, more mysterious time. Jupiter is making a quincunx aspect (indicating a need for adjustment) to Neptune and the South Node throughout the upcoming week. This opens a door of opportunity into seeing more clearly these inherited patterns or perceptions which can be related to addictive ways of thinking and acting. Basically with the Scorpio depth of perception things that can not be easily seen normally can be exposed – sparking an understanding and recognition that can lead to increased clarity about what holds you back and how to go forward in a freer way with increased consciousness.
The down side of this aspect can be associated with avoidance, denial and illusions. These inherited ancestral influences can be seen in astrology charts – if you are curious about their influence in your life and how best to deal with them, do get in touch and book some time.
This Jupiter/Neptune aspect will be an influence for the next nine months or so and also deals with the higher meaning of love, spirituality and religion. It provides a good time to look at how you make love manifest in your life in terms of self love, love for others, love for your life and the world without rose colored glasses.
One of the Sabian Symbols for the Jupiter/Neptune aspect is, “People traveling a narrow path seeking illumination.”
