Jupiter Aries

24 06 2010

What’s your philosophy? How do you expand and seek new horizons? This is the principle question of Jupiter. In Aries, Jupiter expands with great enthusiasm, boisterousness and aggression. Being the benign and harmless planet of philosophy that Jupiter is, when Aries puts him in a situation of aggression and raw combat, Jupiter is not always going to be happy “fighting the fight”.

For these reasons, Jupiter does not have full dignity in Aries. He has got triplicity by night in fire, which means that only in the coolness of night when the Sun’s fire is not felt so harshly, is Jupiter able to move forward. The fire by night of Jupiter here though is less likely to signify “the fight” so much as wisdom through the self, simply because Jupiter  sees and may be able to do what he enjoys, expand horizons, whether be it mental or commercial.

Because Aries philosophy is “do it yourself” and “do it now”, and Jupiter urges to have at least a little bit of forethought, a little bit of wisdom, in order to benefit, it is clear that luck is never going to be immediate, or done “by yourself”. Luck, and optimism do not come when we are impatient. Luck and the benevolence of the world are only received under circumstances when one has faith in a higher power. Therefore, the only luck that natives with Jupiter in Aries will be the luck that they “make themselves”.

Jupiter is a philosophical, optimistic, and outward looking planet. The problem with being in Aries is that there is the likelihood of getting involved in violent atmospheres or in wars. Jupiter does not fair well in war or in attacking since this is entirely contrary to his nature. Jupiter will mess up undertakings which require that aggression, he will either be caught in moral dilemmas as to whether aggression is right, and then falter because of it, or he will simply be caught up in someone elses war.

With Mars in Aries, it is obvious who is the enemy, they attack and you give as good as you get. Jupiter however, is liable to make misjudgment here. Ruling the faculty of judgement, or higher reason, it may be possible to fight and to win, but the moral reasoning may be misaligned.

When dignified, especially by triplicity and terms, this Jupiter will create the circumstances whereby it is possible to lead, or to carve out a life with enormous optimism, and energy. This placement has got speed and movement, it is a joyful and open placing in the chart.

Philosophically, “I think therefore I am” was coined by Jupiter in Aries. But this could easily be the other way around, since being, and presence generally precedes thought. Such philosophy is based on the self as the point of origin and the self as the reference to the universe. If individuals are the measure of the universe, then perhaps the universe is a lonely place, a hostile place, hence Jupiter’s possible unhappiness here.

People with this placing include: Ariel Sharon, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Russell Crowe, Salvador Dali, Nicolas Cage, David Beckham, Rene Descartes

Write to me

14 09 2008

For the last five years I’ve been

Searching for you, but I didn’t know it

No I didn’t know it, no I didn’t know it, in everyone’s

Eyes it was always yours that I was

Looking for, and now I can see them

I thought I saw you last month,

But I wasn’t sure if it was you or not

It was on that day that I realised it

Was always you, you from the beginning that I want.

How did I not see that you loved me back then?

Was I so blind? I was blind. I remember you

So well, everything about you, your voice

Your eyes, your hair, your laugh, and I

Remember we laughed a lot.

And I still feel your warmth five years on

Because no one compared, no one came close,

And I am in a cold place now, but the

Thought of you is like the melting of ice in

The hot Sun.

I can’t really say or think of anything else,

Except that your name is on my

Lips most days now. I don’t hope for

Anything great, I don’t ask for

Anything from you now.

All I want is to know that you are

There somewhere, and if you’re not happy

Maybe I could joke and we’d laugh like

We used to.

You should know that I’m no Gatsby, And

I’m no Moulder either, my faith is strong

But it isn’t misguided. I wouldn’t be

Searching now if I knew deep down that you

Didn’t want me to.

I saw you at that Wedding, And I knew it was

You, And I let you go just like I did

Back then. But that wasn’t how it was meant

To end, because I know that you have

Been thinking of me.
