In Astrology, Jupiter and Neptune in conjuction highlight the issue of disease on a large scale, specifically disease associated with respiratory
tract infections. Jupiter and Neptune were conjunct when the 1918 Pandemic was in swing, making an "exact" conjunction in September 1919.
At the moment, Jupiter and Neptune are AGAIN sitting together in conjunction in the sign of AQUARIUS. Jupiter is at 24 degrees, Neptune at 26 degrees.
This conjunction continues through May, June and the early part of July. It then peters out for a bit, returning to make an EXACT conjunction in Dec
/Jan 2010. This would support the theory being tossed about that the virus will have a SECOND WAVE and it would be in Dec/Jan that this thing begins
to make the really BIG impact.
Also , Aquarius is a sign connected to SCIENCE and MAN rather than mother nature. That this conjunction occurs in this sign would indicate a LAB
Also, as of end of October 2009 and into most of 2010, SATURN (in LIBRA) and PLUTO (in CAPRICORN) are in SQUARE aspect to each other. When these two
planets are in distressful connection to one another the result is any /all of the following come into real focus in terms of generational impacts /
societal experience at large :
- Death, Illness, Infirmity
- Restrictions imposed by governments, authorities
- Hardships, Deprivation, Economic Depression
- Issues of Internment, Isolation From Social Activities , Prison Like Facilities
Note the Saturn-Pluto meeting does not begin until around the time that the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction returns for its second visit...this implies
that the really heavy repercussions do not kick in until THE SECOND WAVE
The Pluto-Saturn meetings along with the Jupiter-Neptune Conjunction BODE OMINOUSLY , that's all I can say. I know many of you will likely think
Astrology a load of bunk, and that's your prerogative, but I thought I'd put this out here for those of you who are interested and maybe there are
some other Astrologers on here who might like to add to this/comment on it.
Jupiter, Neptune, Pandemics ..The Connection
From a more personal and subjective angle let me throw this out here too - any astrologers reading , what's going on in your own chart for 2010
Some months ago we were considering trying for another child. Naturally I checked out the transits for 2010 and was so worried at what I saw that it
was seriously making me reconsider trying to get pregnant. In my own chart, there were two very heavy aspects involving planetary heavweights SATURN
AND PLUTO. Basically Pluto sits right opposite my Saturn for the whole of 2010 into 2011. Every article I read on that connected it to prison-like
situations, confinement, restrictions imposed by authorities, having to survive on very little while another massive aspect involving Pluto trine Mars
talked about fighting for survival under extremely challenging circumstances, having to protect ones life, dealing with a hostile environment etc. At
the time I was imaging things like complications with childbirth, life threatening labour, child being born dead or disabled, immense pressure on my
relationship, being "confined" to the house more because of the burdens of a new child, child draining our resources etc. At the same time however,
I realized that none of the houses connected with having children were involved, so I had to concur it didn't relate to issues of children but
something else instead. It makes a whole lot more sense to me NOW in light of Swine Flu and the restrictions and hardships we would be facing if a
full scale pandemic occurs.
