Yes kids, Jupiter and Uranus are now spinning around the universe in 29 and 28 degrees of Pisces respectively - hugging quite close to one another. What does it mean to have the broad, expansive seeker of truth (Jupiter) conjunct with Uranus, the quick change artist, in that nebulous sign of Pisces? Keep in mind - and this is something people often forget -- you will only feel the effects of transits if they trigger something in your birth chart. For instance, if you were born with Mars in Pisces, when it comes around to Pisces again you are going to feel it. Someone born with Mars in Aries isn't going to feel a Mars in Pisces transit. Uranus and Jupiter don't come back around to the signs in which we were born in our lifetimes (unless we live well into our 90s) so you will feel the impact of these two if they are in aspect to your Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury or Venus (the personal planets.)
For the most part, two outer planets making a strong conjunction throw more of an influence over society as a whole than to individuals.
Ok that over with; let's see what is cooking with Jupiter and Uranus. Jupiter in Pisces is a time when mystical tendencies and religious fervor are at a peak. Uranus in Pisces heightens intuition and heightens spiritual awareness. Hmmm....none of that going on in the world right now!
Ok you want another twist? Of course you do. Both planets are in retrograde right now. That means they look as though they are going in reverse in the sky. Astrologically it indicates a time when those energies of that planet have to find a new way of expressing themselves. It is as though the normal channel is clogged and the energy has to make a new pathway.
I can't help but feel that the current Tea Party craziness and Fox media stars attempting to portray themselves as preachers bringing religion to American government are all a part of this sideways Jupiter/Uranus energy. Yeah I know I thought the religious right was gone for good too.
Threats of Koran burning, lies about "Ground Zero Mosques" - these are all expressions of this heightened energy too
Jupiter and Uranus will stay in this conjunction until late April 2011 so hang on kids. Let's just hope cooler heads can keep them hosed down before they do any real damage
