NOV 04


It’s not drawing too long a bow to liken Sagittarian Jupiter to a lawman on a sweating stallion thundering to a gunfight at the nearest OK Corral. Justice must be served but this is going to be one hell of a shoot-out.

Sagittarius is Latin for archer, and the Sagittarii is what the Roman legions termed their horseback bowmen. While the modernist perceives Sagittarius as a futuristic, adventurous sign: the seeker of truth and travel: it also has the potential for political and/or religious extremism and trials of the century.

Jupiter, also known as Jove, the Roman god of justice rules Sagittarius. The Greek parallel was Zeus, the sky and thunder god of Mt Olympus, or the Nordic archetype Thor. When Jupiter aligns with Sagittarius, their thunderbolts come to earth, justice becomes front-page news, and exaggerated ideologies can elevate commoners to kings.

In a month where the Mueller investigation is expected to go reach a climax, where Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein could be walking on thin ice, where Trump may face the music and polarised mid-terms divide the US, and where the Khashoggi murder still looms large internationally, it's auspicious that Jupiter returns to Sagittarius.

‘The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.’
William Blake

The missionary zeal of this astro-signature was evident in Maximilian Robespierre the quintessential figure of the French Revolution. Or the Ayatollah Khomeini whose return to his homeland heralded a people’s revolution and the creation of the Iranian Islamic Republic. Both born with Jupiter in Sag.

The romantic visionary William Blake, himself born with a Sun/Jupiter conjunction in the sign, exposed the overkill of the amalgam when he wrote, ‘Prudence was a rich, ugly, old maid courted by incapacity’, and ‘you never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough’.

And true to it’s judicial archetype Jupiter in Sag has accompanied many controversial court battles from the O.J. Simpson murder trial, the Azaria Chamberlain baby/dingo mystery, the Nuremburg ‘nazi doctors’ revelation, to Stalin’s public purge, and the trial that marked the rise of a fledgling Feuhrer.

‘Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.’
W.B. Yeats

This next section examines the more recent (last century) occurrences of Jupiter in Sagittarius, coupled with notable events and trends.

In 1924, a young political visionary imprisoned in Bavaria was dictating the pains of his patriotic struggle in ‘Mien Kampf’, following his arrest for high treason. The sentence appropriately handed down on April Fool’s Day, with Jupiter in Sag, meant Adolf Hitler would be free by Christmas.

On the other side of Europe the death of Russian Revolution leader Vladimir Lenin cleared the way toward Josef Stalin’s power surge. And in the USA J. Edgar Hoover was appointed head of the FBI. The events embodied the Yeats line; ‘The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.’

“The first duty of a revolutionary is to get away with it.”
Abbe Hoffman

When Jupiter next returned to the sign of the archer, in 1936, Adolf Hitler would be leading an emerging industrial giant, Germany, then hosting the Olympic Games. In March of that year, the Fuehrer’s troops re-occupied the Rhineland breaking the Treaty of Versailles.

Mussolini added his support authorising the Pact of Steel, establishing a Rome/Berlin Axis. Then on November 25 Hitler signed ‘an agreement meant to protect European culture and civilisation from the Bolshevik menace’ with Japan.

The political polarity of Europe played out in the Spanish Civil War with the Communists and Fascists supplying assistance to the warring parties. In the Middle East the battle between Jewish settlers and nationalists began in earnest with the Arab Revolt. And in the midst of these extremities US activist Abbie Hoffman was born.

Abbie Hoffman was later to muse, “I believe in compulsory cannibalism. If people were forced to eat what they killed, there would be no more wars.” But Jupiter in Sagittarius had already drawn the bow.

“Those who seek Oneness will eventually find Twoness.”
Woody Allen

By the time Jupiter returned to home base in October 1947 the Cold War was beginning. The divisions were now mirrored in Berlin itself. A Russian blockade of surface transport led to Allied food drops, and the dissection of the German capital. In the USA, the House of Un-American Activities began their interrogation of suspected ‘reds’ in Hollywood.

The State of Israel was born with powerful allied support against fierce Arab resistance, and the Palestinian exodus began. On the subcontinent India’s partition spawned Pakistan, and North Korea’s charismatic leader Kim II Sung proclaimed the republic of North Korea dividing the peninsula. All of these countries predominate world news today, and possibly moreso over the year ahead.

A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue.
Truman Capote

The following sojourn of Jupiter in Sagittarius by 1959 brought East and West tantalisingly close as the British PM Harold McMillan visited the soviet snows, and USSR leader Nikoli Khrushchev touched down in the USA. But a planned Paris summit between President Eisenhower and Khrushchev was literally shot out of the skies along with a US U2 spy plane over Russian airspace.

In Transvaal police opened fire killing 56 protesting natives in what has become known as the ‘Sharpeville massacre’. It prompted Harold McMillan to say before the South African parliament, “the wind of change is blowing through this continent, and whether you like or not the growth of national consciousness is a political fact.”

Unamused was the South African PM Henrick Verwoerd, the victim of an attempted assassination that year. Perhaps he could relate to the Woody Allen aside, “I don't believe in the after life, although I am bringing a change of underwear.” Woody had Sun, Mercury and Jupiter in Sag. Keeps his humour but has seen his share of courtrooms too.

Wisdom is oft times nearer when we stoop than when we soar.
William Wordsworth

Nothing exceeds like excess. Big budgetary blowouts caused by wasteful defence spending, encouraged a temporary meltdown of the Cold War. The superpowers were back to the negotiating tables. US President Richard Nixon made a groundbreaking trip to Communist China, and signed the Moscow Pact in 1972 with Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev.

The division between Israel and Palestine dramatically deteriorated with terrorists executing 25 people at Tel Aviv airport and following up with the Munich Olympic massacre where 9 Israeli hostages were killed.

Footfalls echo in the memory, down the passage which we did not take, towards the door we never opened Into the rose-garden.
T. S. Eliot

The diplomatic gains between East and West became a distant memory by March 1983 as US President Ronald Reagan dubbed the Soviets the ‘Evil Empire’ and proposed a costly Star Wars missile defence system to protect the US from future nuclear attack. Polarity was back on the table.

Meanwhile the USSR shot down a Korean airline 747 Jumbo over Siberia with 269 civilian casualties. And the Middle East exploded again when Shi’ite rebels drove explosive laden trucks into American and French Beirut headquarters killing 241 US marines and 58 French paratroopers, hastening a US withdrawal.

Often we have no time for our friends but all the time in the world for our enemies.
Leon Uris

As Jupiter re-entered Sagittarius in December 1994 the Russian Army attacked the Chechnya capital of Groznyy. This entire period coincided with ferocious with separatist state. Russia’s New Year’s Eve assault was repelled with losses of over 2,000 men. Chechen gunmen took 1,500 people hostage in a hospital. Terrorism was back with a bang.

The US experienced its worst homeland terrorist attack to date, with the Oklahoma City bombing. Thousands of commuters on five Tokyo subway trains were simultaneously gassed by the crazed Japanese religious cult, called Aum Supreme Truth, Jupiter in Sagittarius zeal. In the Middle-East Israel Prime Minister, Yitzak Rabin, was assassinated by a Jewish extremist for having signed the Oslo Accord with Palestinian leader Yassar Arafat.

‘Freedoms just another word for nothing left to lose’
Kris Kristofferson

Each repetition of Jupiter through Sagittarius produces violent rebellions at perceived injustices, often with a charismatic leader predominant. Ideological extremities widen whether they are Communist/Capitalist, East/West, Arab/Jew or Christian/Muslim. Forgotten is the Buddha’s pearl that there is only one truth and that is there is no truth.

The last time Jupiter crossed this way was twelve years ago. Iraq was the country experiencing the greatest division, with a marked increase in insurgency, leading to a US troop surge. Neighbouring Iran held Royal Navy personnel prisoner for sailing in disputed waters. North Korea first agreed to nuclear inspections and in the US mid terms, Nancy Pelosi became Head of the House.

Does that last one give a clue to the upcoming US mid-term elections. I think so. Looking at the President's chart for that event shows Mars exactly squaring his birth Midheaven, whilst the SP Mars also hard angles to the same Midheaven. He's in 'battle mode' and something is fueling his anger. He has a fight on his hands.

As for Jupiter, Trump's chart shows his Progressed Sun is running semisquare to his birth Jupiter. Add to that, the transit of Jupiter will square his Progressed Sun by November 17 and transiting Mars will oppose his progressed Sun the following day. The transits exacerbate the progressions and it's centered Jupiter, the planet of judicial matters.

When you add that to the fact that Jupiter will transit in opposition to the President's birth Sun on March 11, May 11 and October 30 2019, it makes for an interesting year of legalese. Jupiter in Sagittarius. Certainly no time for booking a holiday at the OK Corral - that's for sure. More like the Constitutional Crisis on the doorstep.

And to round out on a positive. The last time Jupiter moved through Sagittarius, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change established that man made fossil fuels were a major contributor of climate change. Now, at the Jupiter return, a group of activists have been given the all clear to take government inactivity on this tragedy to the Supreme Court. Perhaps that's really the most important showdown of all for humanity's future.
