Jupiter’s Year 04/01/2019

After so many cloudy mornings recently, a new year has at last dawned: Jupiter’s year, reflected by Jupiter within his own zodiacal place and shining below Venus’ brightness. Granted, this moment is colored by being within Saturn’s five year domain of ruling both his signs and Mars’ month-and-a-half sojourn through his own place.

But Jupiter’s rhythm — one zoidion (zodiacal sign) per year — is one to which most people can readily relate, as it correlates with joy and good feelings (if not fortune) and expansiveness within specific areas of life. (One cautionary note: Bear in mind the Jupiter-or-stupider option.)

And granted, yesterday — Thursday, Thor’s day — was Jupiter’s day, but Jupiter held off from revealing himself until Venus’ day when they both beautifully danced across the morning sky. Joining in, alas invisibly from this vantage point, was Luna conjoining Mercury in the last degree of Jupiter’s zoidion, a day before the year’s first eclipse.

And so the question is: To what new vibrancy, what new field(s) of endeavor are you committing yourself?

I’m seizing this moment to announce one of my current new endeavors: a new web site, with a name which is perhaps more likely to stick in one’s memory: Zodiacal Spiral.

Stay tuned for its launch as an extension of what I began on the Cancer solar ingress 2012: the blog with the funny name, astroplethorama. As this blog is retired, Zodiacal Spiral will contain, for the first time, the means to order a copy of my book, Scenes from a Tapestry: Reports and Musings on Weather, Climate and the Long Emergency.

(Do you remember what I have emphasized here through the years: that the current system of weather forecasting, dependent upon a far-flung web of satellites, computers and linkages among them, is likely a rather brief phenomenon? I hold to that view, and the conviction that it would behoove those with similar views to prepare for more localized living, cultivating an intimate experience and understanding of land, topography and atmosphere, informed by astrological awareness. Scenes is intended as a teaching and study guide in do-it-yourself astro-meteorology. The apps won’t last.)

Wow! You’re really starting anew in so many ways! I’m going to order a few books for friends when you get it up and ready. Sounds like a Jupiter year for you already! I believe in you!

Thank you so much for your many votes of confidence! I recall you have your own new venture launching — best of luck with that.
