Predictions Jan 20 to Feb 3, 2014: Powerful T-square with Venus Stationary, Patterns for Later 2014
During this two week period there will be a powerful line up of Jupiter and Pluto, punctuated by a station of Venus, occurring on Friday, January 31, 2014. As is pictured in this image posted here.
Venus effectively will be re-activating its conjunction with Pluto of some months ago, precisely on November 15, 2013, wherein it moved on, turned retrograde and reconnects with that exact point, this time turning direct within a few degrees of that same zodiac degree. This time, however, Jupiter will be in very strong aspect to them in sidereal Gemini, along with Uranus from Pisces.
Whatever is touched by Venus is invariably uplifted, as it will be from Jupiter. Their combined effects on Pluto may be to spiritualize and make more personal Pluto’s transformative, if not destructive, effects. Jupiter on Pluto will have the effect of expanding the depth and power of current thought; it can also overly inflate situations which later go bust.
Creativity should also be at a peak, adding the power of beauty to transform the world.
There is a lot of talk about “bubbles” these days; inflated expectations out of things which are exaggerated in their importance: stock market prices, selling prices of homes, the amount of money created by governments and central banks (i.e. printed out of thin air). A lot of this talk is either how the best days are yet to come with regard to these assets, or that the bubbles are going to pop, basically wiping out a lot of “investors” (i.e. suckers playing the markets.)
“Pump and dump” is another term used, where assets are hyped up in value/price in the media, a lot of others buy it up, but then the original investors get out while the getting is good, “dumping” the stocks just before the exaggerated valuation pops, taking huge profits and leaving the others with nearly worthless assets/stocks. It’s a tried and true con game, and I wonder if the markets are going to get a huge surge of hype during this Jupiter/Pluto configuration, with another surge in mid-April 2014 as Jupiter then re-aspects Uranus and Pluto.
Note also transiting Mars entering the picture in sidereal Virgo in April 2014, aspecting the entire configuration.
Just to be clear, I think these dates may be peaks of the hype with any subsequent “popping” happening sometime after that, weeks or months possibly. Squares and oppositions tend to push planetary energies past the normal safe limits, adding a little risk to situations which always have upside potentials.
Upside outcomes is not necessarily the province of the Universe to supply to you. Upsides come from you, as you strive to create the best out of every situation. The potential upsides to this entire astrological configuration (as you choose to make it happen for you) are radical fundamental shifts almost recklessly taken which have the effect of completely changing the personal and social perspective on our affairs. It’s a little soft on the details, suggesting it’s going to a more spontaneous experience.
As the intensity of the configurations fade, hopefully we can settle into some new ways of doing things without falling back to repeating old paradigms.
Mon and Tues, Jan 20-21
No peaking influences
Wednesday, Jan 22
Significant personal and relationship issues will come to light. There may be a few somber moments with some concessions given, but hopefully all parties are no moving closer to their singular and joint destinies. (Sun square Nodes, Juno tridecile Saturn)
Thursday, Jan 23
Determined realism may alternate with animated idealism, hopefully blending together to create workable paths of personal, business, and/or spiritual endeavor. (Sun quintile Saturn, Mercury biquintile Jupiter)
Friday, Jan 24
Urgent action may be urged of us, causing us not to waste much time with trifles, but to address the important topics right away. (Mercury trine Mars)
Saturday, Jan 25
Formulating and conveying ideas and information may be hindered or inhibited, with one being one’s own worst critic preventing action. Undue pessimism may seek to thwart incisive actions or communications. (Mercury square Saturn)
Sunday, Jan 26
At some point today important developments may be hindered by scattered or excessive nervousness, if one is not committed to remaining calm and focused. Ideas may conflict with the consensus opinions of things, setting people or situations at odds with each other. (Mercury semisquare Uranus)
Monday, Jan 27
Charismatic and magnetic relationship dynamics may play out, hopefully bringing both parties to a greater awareness of themselves, especially if conscientiousness is exercised at the same time. (Juno sextile Pluto)
Tuesday, Jan 28
Interesting and compelling debate could draw people together. Obsessive and compulsive behaviors may be lit off. Understand that possibilities seen in others may not necessarily predict the realities of the future with them. (Juno trine Jupiter, Mercury semisquare Pluto)
Wednesday, Jan 29
Excitement and intriguing possibilities may seem to captivate the attention, but it may be important the double check facts and figures before fully believing what may be seen or heard today. A sense of independent friendliness and camaraderie may be present. (Mercury sesquiquadrate Jupiter, Sun sextile Uranus)
Thursday, Jan 30
While there may be friendly and cordial moments between parties today, there could also be a very tangible sense of competition and aggression as well. People always have the choice of working against, or working with others; it always seems to be the ego that gets in the way. (Sun tridecile Mars, Venus sextile Juno, Mercury semisquare Venus)
Friday, Jan 31, Venus Stationary Direct
Ideas and their power to change the world will be in the forefront, expectations could be inflated and/or completely off-track; but just because you believe in what you say so much, that alone is not all the justification you need. The personal element in the big picture is highlighted as well, how do your feelings count in relation to society as well. Relationships may head into new directions. Emotions may be profoundly powerful, opening new possibilities. (Jupiter opposite Pluto, Venus stationary direct, Sun quincunx Jupiter)
Saturday, Feb 1
Saturn takes an early jaunt into sidereal Scorpio until early April, adding depth and intensity to our life experience.
