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

South Node

The Dragon´s Tail Re-Written

Without wanting to change or re-write what is accepted knowledge. I´ll begin with what I am familiar which is Christian Astrology:

“Neither part of fortune, North node, South node do emit any radiation”

“North Node is as Jupiter, South Node is a Saturn and Mars” (p.533 CAIII)

This is interesting since the same result is given for for North and South:

“Moon with North Node or South Node shows active spirits, prompt to any science” (p.544)

About Mercury: “with North Node or South Node, he renders most acute and witty??? And good linguists speak many languages.” (p.545)

There are many instances in which South Node is described by Lilly as leading to illness, and misfortune through soldiers, thiefs and other nasty people. But here are a couple of quotes which give contrary evidence in Lilly.

Now my President, Prime Minister, Pop star and Film star:

In the light of Lilly we have South Node as a body without its own “radiation”, although he states that it is of the nature of Saturn and Mars. I find this very interesting. Brad Pitt has Mars conjunct SN in Capricorn. He is in films in which he is a fighter, and not just any old fighter, but a legendary fighter, one who is deified. Fight Club, Snatch, Troy, he´s Achilles. Mars for Pitt appears to be not just exalted but taken to the next level… invincibility, it is almost excessive in Fight Club where he takes absolute pleasure in destruction. Pitt´s Mars is 2 degrees orb conjunct SN. For closer Orb Zinedine Zidane has Mars conjunct SN in Cancer in the 3rd house. He is a great French footballer. Won the World Cup in 98, European Cup in Euro 2000, and Champions League in 2002 with Real Madrid. Here is the SN thing. He is down, for a notorious incident involving provocation from another player for which he reacted with violence. But then again, he´s been awarded the FIFA world player of the year no less than 3 times and awarded the World Cup golden ball in 2006.

So what we are beginning to see is not illness in Pitt´s case, but “great activity” which is quoting Lilly now. So using Lilly as a guide, we have South Node as a distinctly active, if not over-active area. Honour and success though is not denied. Disease and fraud which Lilly seems to point towards is not the mainstay here. But rather good health and extreme success when this person is successful. Churchill and Reagan I believe are leaders who are deified by large numbers of people in their countries, for standing up for “freedom”, which is your Jupiter signification. In Scorpio Reagan was a Hawk, an military supporter, though not a war mongerer. He is famed for expanding American economy. Which is your Jupiter signifier, though of course I am not denying that a price was paid at the same time. Churchill formed Alliances. SN Jupiter in Libra. He would have never won the war without the US on his side which is one thing that he achieved, through his North Atlantic Meetings with Roosevelt. And his talks with Stalin, and getting the rest of the Empire as well on his side, lets not forget the British Empire was not prepared to fight without that promise of Independence. Then we have Churchill the artist… he painted more than 700 watercolours.

I neglected Britney didn´t I? She´s your pin up pop-star. But she´s the most successful female singer to date. She has mutual reception by domicile between Venus and Capricorn, but I think that SN there is definitely bringing something extra, since Saturn and Venus are actually closely square to each other, and would lead me to an interpretation of someone more introverted and less confident about their abilities. With all planets below the horizon except for a 12th house Mars, Britney is not meant for the public exposure that she´s had. She has Fortune in the 10th which is a great position, but that´s it.

To just bring all this in now, here are only a handful of examples of South Node conjunctions. I do not refute Lilly´s observation that it is of a nature like Saturn and Mars. But I propose that this is a potentially highly active and expansive point. Like Saturn, because it is not a place of rest and relaxation, all my examples here are workaholics related to the planet in conjunction with the SN.
