The Jupiter/Pluto opposition in the news

collisionAlthough the exact alignment between Jupiter and Pluto did not culminate until yesterday, the two great gods in the sky have been approaching each other for the past few weeks.

Jupiter is the King of the Gods and inspires expansive confidence and a righteous adherence to the belief systems which we hold dear.  I often get the feeling that Pluto laughs at the idea that Jupiter considers himself the King, since Pluto holds the key to life and death itself.  I suppose it’s because the father of Jupiter and Pluto, that nasty Saturn, ate all his children and only Jupiter escaped and managed to save the rest.

At any rate, as I wrote last week:  With Jupiter opposing Pluto we will likely see conflict between the small truths and the bigger Truths that underlie the very fabric of reality.  Jupiterian truths are like theologies – your truth may be different from mine.  Your politics may be different from mine.  But Truth is a reality that cannot change from one person to the next.

Over the past ten days or so that Jupiter and Pluto have been moving into alignment, the planet Mars was also involved.  Mars represents anger, haste, desire, impulsive behavior – it’s inclusion into the larger cycle has created some inflammatory situations across the globe.  Here are just a few:

  • There have been a number of plane and transportation crashes:
    • A train traveling at 195 mph crashed in Spain
    • A train in Quebec exploded and killed 47 people
    • Two trains collided in Switzerland, injuring 35.
    • In Louisiana a tanker train derailed and over 100 homes were evacuated due to the leakage of deadly chemicals (that’s Neptune in Pisces getting into the act).
  • A motorist drove through a crowd in Venice Beach, California, attempting to kill as many people as possible.

Mars is moving out of range of the Jupiter/Pluto alignment so things should settle down somewhat.  Meanwhile, Jupiter in Cancer is in a harmonious trine to Neptune in Pisces, as well as to Saturn in Scorpio as part of the Grand Trine alignment, so the tendency towards bloviastic (is that a word??) behavior will be toned down and a greater sensitivity underlies all of our endeavors now.

    Lynn, i am sorry for you, but writing ONLY TODAY mars jupiter pluto “could” influence about ACCIDENTS, means you are a MURDERER. Because you should already dit it BEFORE. Plenty more daus before. Of course if you are a responsible person, and a sensitive astrologer.
    After reading your text, you can’t convince about mars jupiter pluto effect for accidents. Because, in ALL THE WOLRD, not only in USA, but in Canada, Europe, Africa (case of Mandela water and electricity bills) India, even China, all these accidents began in first days of JULY. Not August. Maybe in your county you does not read newspapers at all. Or maybe, your news are like “american talk to american”. As it was in london radio on the second world war.
    From begining of July, in 4 texts, sorry we, in astroemail blog, wrote all in french, a tongue you does n’t read, even with google tool bar translate, we already said, to all astrologers that it will BIG TIME for accidents, with presence of Jupiter and Mercury in Cancer from begin of july to 8 of august. And we published a large selection of news wordly widely.
    So for me, it means you just awoke like whitesnow when the nightmare is ended.
    Maybe you are a really whitesnow astrologer!!!!

      OK, how’s this, astroemail editor. At the end of October until about November 1, Uranus and Pluto will be in a square, a very tense aspect. Start preparing for accidents and upsetting events around that time and don’t say you weren’t warned.

    Really. I don’t know why the astroemail editor even visits this blog, it seems to upset him so greatly!

    Tee hee…I agree with you Lynn. Obviously feelings are running high with this configuration! Thank you for your post. We Americans may be a bit slow on the uptake, but eventually we clue in too!

    That must be mercury retrograde?
