“Jupiter’s craving is to constantly expand the parameters of life beyond the familiar.” Caroline W Casey
Friday’s New Moon is at 8 degrees of Libra conjunct Jupiter. This a wonderful aspect and can usher in a time of hope and optimism. Jupiter is the Santa Claus of the zodiac and can bring good luck, abundance and sense of freedom from tiresome limitations. It is an excellent time to set intentions about broadening your horizons through travel or study.
Jupiter’s tendency towards excess can need tempering. It bodes well for the next year or so to follow a path of moderation as there is a tendency with Jupiter in Libra for things to swing to one extreme and then back like a pendulum.
The planet Mars is now in its exaltation in Capricorn – boding well for rekindling ambition and for gaining traction with projects that may have been stalled out under the influence of the Saturn Neptune square. The Sabian symbol for Mars at this time is, “The human soul, in its eagerness for new experiences, seeks embodiment.”
The Sabian symbol for the karmic degree of the New Moon is,”A blazing fireplace in a deserted home.” This symbol is about the importance of keeping the inner fires of inspiration burning bright – particularly when events in the outer world may appear daunting or confusing.
