Jupiter Conjunct Uranus at 27˚ Pisces on January 4, 2011

  • Ripe for quantum leaps in consciousness
  • Catalyzes profound inner as well as outer developments
  • Expands our 6th sense, our intuition, which can attune to dimensions & realities far beyond the physical plane
  • Catalyzes advancements in technology
  • Facilitates an increased understanding of our interconnectedness and interdependence to everyone and everything
  • Easily accessed knowledge of higher dimensions
  • Contact with life forms beyond our solar system

Jupiter and Uranus rendezvous every 13-14 years, but their meetings in Pisces have been rare: their last conjunction in the 12th sign was in 1334; the next time will be in 2093. The January 4, 2011 conjunction is the 3rd in a series of 3; the first 2 were in 2010 (June 8 at 0˚ Aries and on September 18 at 29˚ Pisces). Since Jupiter rules expansion, and Uranus innovation, the years of their conjunctions coincide with major breakthroughs.

  • The previous conjunction (1997 at 6˚ Aquarius) saw the first animal cloning (Dolly the sheep) and the first spacecraft landing on Mars.
  • The 1983 conjunctions (6˚ - 9˚ Sagittarius) witnessed the Pioneer 10 space probe leave the solar system, and
  • The 1968-69 conjunctions (1˚ - 4˚ Libra) corresponded to Neil Armstrong’s walk on the Moon and the first Internet transmission.

This year’s Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Pisces reminds us that the current environmental, economic, and social challenges will not be solved solely by advances in technology, but through a spiritual revolution, a shift into a more unified awareness.

Jupiter Square Pluto at 7o Aries/Capricorn on February 25, 2011

Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system and the 2nd biggest broadcaster of electromagnetic energy (after the Sun), represents opportunities to enlarge our experience and understanding of life far beyond what has been codified by our social, cultural, and religious institutions. Profound insights and new sources of energy come to the fore as Jupiter moves into Aries on January 22, 2011.

Jupiter makes its final of 3 squares to Pluto on February 25 (the first 2 were on July 24, 2010 at 3˚23 Aries/Capricorn and on August 2, 2010 at 3˚12”) and its 3rd opposition to Saturn on March 28, 2011 at 14˚21” Aries/Libra (the previous oppositions were on May 22, 2010 at 27˚52” Pisces/Virgo and on August 16 at 2˚26” Aries/Libra).

Scalar waves, discovered by Nikola Tesla before the turn of the 20th century, provide virtually free, unlimited energy. Information about these bidirectional, longitudinal electromagnetic frequencies has been suppressed by vested interests in oil and other profitable energy sources. These kinds of abundant, free, renewable energy sources are due to re-emerge as Jupiter and Uranus transit through Aries.

Solar Eclipse January 4, 2011 13o Capricorn 38 minutes

The upcoming Solar eclipse will take place on January 4, 2011. The affected areas in the U.S. Sag. Rising Chart are first house (self), second house (money and self esteem), and seventh house (partners, open enemies). There is an out-of-house stellium of transiting eclipse planets in the first and second houses which are in opposition to a stellium in the natal seventh house. (A stellium is made up of 3 or more planets conjunct each other.) This opposition stands out more than anything else in the chart.

It can be interpreted in at least two ways. The first is since the eclipse planets are located in natural Cardinal areas, it will have an impact on our country’s self-esteem, money and (foreign) partners. In the 9/11 chart, Pluto was in opposition to Saturn. Transiting Pluto is now square natal Saturn in Libra (in the tenth house) indicating a restriction. Red China is co-ruled by Libra and Scorpio. It looks like China’s actions will affect our money supply.

Also indicated are the two houses of Congress now with split majorities. Democrats controlling the Senate may not work well with Republicans controlling the House of Representatives. Any progress the government makes will take longer and require more patience.

Transiting Uranus (in 3rd) is in opposition to natal Neptune (in 9th). This aspect can mean an abrupt end to current ideology and will do away with any illusions we have regarding the government.

President Obama’s chart is affected by the eclipse, also. He has the same out-of-house stellium of eclipse planets transiting his eleventh and twelfth houses. In his natal chart, Saturn and Jupiter are conjunct in his twelfth house which also conjuncts the eclipse stellium. It looks like he won’t get credit for anything he has accomplished and will create the wrong impression. That has been happening if you watch news regularly. He has been criticized for being aloof and disconnected. He needs to get his ego out of the way, not take it personally, and form a new partnership with the new Congress.

The President has transiting Neptune in opposition to natal Uranus. This aspect has been in effect for several years. According to Robert Hand (Planets in Transit) this is a major aspect. Obama is experiencing an enormous revolution in consciousness as he is exposed to aspects of life he never dreamed possible. Old goals may need to go away so new ones can be formed. As the 2012 election approaches look for him to, possibly, become more moderate. His legislative action will be tied to his re-election campaign.
