Jupiter just moved into Leo – Time to give your new creative self-expressive purpose some real legs!

Jupiter in Leo

You’ve got to know what it is!  Our Sun is just about to move right over Jupiter (last 2 weeks of July 2014).  Pay attention this next week as the Sun moves closer to Jupiter and goes right over it!  (Exciting stuff!)

Jupiter says, “Go big or go home”.  Well, that’s what I’ve heard anyway–and it makes sense.  Jupiter is a big planet and on an astronomical level it’s pretty protective of earth too, deflecting a lot of space rocks that would otherwise hit us.  No wonder it has the reputation of good fortune as one of it’s archetypes.

Leo is associated with that 5th house ruled by Sun and is all about creative self-expression and purpose, special gifts and talents.  Each of us has something within us that nobody can do better!  And that something is likely getting tickled out of us or we’re getting flashes or insights about that creative purpose right now.

If you knew the house of your natal Jupiter (where it was the day you were born)  this could help us understand your own juices a bit more and of course what house Jupiter is moving through in your chart right now that could help with more detail too.  But chances are you already know what it is and an astrologer could simply validate it for you and help give you some added kick-start encouragement. 

Belief and opportunity are key words in association with this recent energy shift in our psyche that is associated by Jupiter’s recent move into the Leo part of the star systems.  As above–so below.

Oh–wait!  Let’s add the word “fun” to the mix.  So think about it…  its probably been on your mind for a while anyway and now you see the opportunity to give this project some real legs.

Jupiter in Leo for you could very well involve the following… here are some HINTS:

  • it’s big
  • it involves your purpose here
  • it’s expressive and creative
  • nobody can do it like you can
  • its going to be really fun to do
  • it’s an opportunity
  • you’ll need to really believe in it
  • and it’s going to help protect you here or enhance your survival
  • you will use your right brain and intuition
  • it could involve teaching or philosophy in some way, perhaps writing (Jupiter rules the 9th house so all those archetypes are part of it)
  • it’s likely to get you the attention you’ve been wanting for the purpose of your soul’s evolution
  • teaching, studying, philosophy, writing (all Jupiter associations with the 9th house it rules) and traveling afar
  • divination could be a huge part of it since Jupiter rules intuition and right brain energy and Leo will give it a creative purpose

If you know astrology, just combine Sun/Jupiter/Sag/5th house/9th house and then look at your own chart–where’s your Jupiter in Leo, meaning what house–what area of life is this going to awaken or include as part of this energy shift into this enlivened creative self-expressive new purpose?

It’s going to somehow involve “relating” to others in some way since the transiting North Node (our evolving soul’s growth, evolutionary intention) is in the sign of Libra so all those Libra qualities are likely to be part of it.  Venus ruling Libra and Taurus is therefore involved in the mix.  Beauty, harmony, survival, security–those archetypes are likely part of this package too.

(Aspiration:  May this little post be encouraging, informative and helpful for those who come upon it. )

Animal Friends, Leopardskin Jasper, and NN Libra and relationship patterns

Leopard Skin JasperAh yes!  The little darling did it again!  “Aunt Joy, I didn’t think you had any friends.”  Well, of course, can you blame her?  I mention one of my friends at dinner in the restaurant–I was referring to a human friend by the way. Anyway…

She’s 17 years old and friends at her age are the end-all, beat-all and collecting the numbers at any price for popularity and all that is typical of that age I suppose.  Yet, myself at 17, I had my books and spent a lot of time to myself and as we trace this timeline backward and forward from that age, same deal!

I often talk about the trees being “my friends” and the birds too and then of course, my crystal friends–the stones I’ve been Facebook-ing about and in wrote about in my newsletter earlier this week.  My  niece joins most of the rest of consensus humanity (the mass-mind of a shallow society) with values completely different from my own and dare I say nearly opposed from  fringe dwellers (at least in consciousness) like me.

Well, she stopped my mind in it’s tracks at that moment with her comment about never seeing me with a “friend”.  I realize that most others who have the same world and “other-world” view as myself are like hidden gems and most I’ve found (or they have found me) through the Internet, my website, as clients or psychic class members.  I suspect there have been many lifetimes that my soul spent up on mountaintops or alone in the wood where I feel most at home with nature and animal friends.

So this innocent, thoughtless (or was it?) comment from this high school-er relative got me to thinking.  How does someone respond to that kind of thing?  I was stopped in my mental tracks by her words because I realized the pattern of people simply not knowing who I am–not that I’d expect any selfish minded, self-centered teenager to take the time or trouble to figure that out but how could I even explain it during casual dinner conversation?

So, I didn’t say much and tried to joke it away later in the conversation:  “Well, what do I know?  I don’t even have any friends. ha ha”

I have to say that when an animal says hello or recognizes me, it brings me feelings of happiness and sacredness (really sacredness is a really good word to describe it)—feelings that rarely happen when a human says hello when passing by.  I’m thinking of dogs who stop to say hello–this used to happen more often in the mountains where they weren’t leashed.  But even now here in the heart of the crowded human city when a pet owner walks by with their dog on the leash, we connect.  The pet owner fades back and blurs out in my experience and the dog and I connect!  Instant friend!

Each of my 3 daughters has a cat–one daughter has 3 cats and those are my friends too!

Those are the local friends within the community; but I do have online friends… many for years and years!  And telephone friends too.   Not that I need to defend or explain this—yet there it was again in the face of her comment.  Totally misunderstood—again!    Its a pattern of course and that feeling of being “an alien from a galaxy far, far away” (to borrow a phrase from the movies—wasn’t it Star Wars?) —anyway, that feeling is so familiar and has some emotional pain woven into it at points.   But then, it’s right on time–isn’t it?

I mean that astrologically it is–this whole friend ‘thing’ and relationship ‘thing’–now that the transiting Lunar Nodes are moving through Libra/Aries.  I’m sure there will be more of this kind of thing rather than less and I’m telling myself that I may as well get used to it.  As you  likely know, the archetype themes of Libra/Aries have to do with independence/freedom versus relationship.  And suddenly I hear Barbara Streisand’s voice in my head singing “People who need people, are the luckiest people in the world….”.  Honestly, frankly, truth be told—I’ve always hated that song!  I guess that could be pretty revealing, right?

Well, so today thinking of all this, I thought to close eyes and to do a CRYSTAL READING for myself, pulling a stone out of the bowl–the vibe of which I was hoping would give me some help.  After all, the title of this week’s newsletter was CRYSTALS HELP.  Anyway, guess what stone it was?  LEOPARDSKIN JASPER!

This is the stone that I think of as relating to communicating with the animals.  This stone relates to kindness and gentleness which is how I experience most all animals–they are kind and gentle and help us to be as well.  But mostly, since I was thinking today about how animals really make better friends than most humans (those ego-inflated humans with their agendas which rarely include unconditional love and acceptance)… mostly, I felt that with eyes closed drawing this stone out of my crystal bowl was a smile and recognition from the animal kingdom and my own animal totem.

For the record and in the interest of disclosure, being human myself (sometimes regretfully–ha ha) the unconditional love and acceptance example of animals is one that I could emulate more too.  I do like the example of cats however as they will intuitively walk away from humans with vibrations that are harsh, mean, aggressive, ill-disposed or  unfriendly.  Cats are selective about their human bonds–me too!

Funny thing though–if I should at any time find myself longing for anything or looking at my desire-nature, never is there wish for more friends.   I suppose it’s an emotional security thing, you know?  Most humans long for what they believe will give them emotional security, more happiness, and less pain.  I have a short list in that regard and more friends simply isn’t on it–and there’s no elitism or snobbishness with that or anywhere on the side.

I think, too, that as a psychic and medium, there is a continual awareness of having a full life with my friends in spirit world.  For example, right now, I feel the room in which I’m typing this filled with spirit beings, crystal people and …. well, the room is full, and in that sense my life is full and would a simple minded teenager understand that?

Spirit friends:  I can see them, feel, them and know I am surrounded by them–just like many other fringe dwellers who would be stumped, as I was, by that comment.

So, I will take my Leopardskin Jasper and place it in my pocket and carry it with me today and smile my secret smile knowing I’ve had a wink and a nod from those of the Animal Kingdom–the very best kinds of friends!

Excuse me now–because its time to water my plant friends!
