Jupiter in Pisces 2021

On May 13th-14th, depending on which part of the world you are in, we find the planet of abundance, Jupiter, enter its sign of dignity - Pisces.  Pisces is a sign of compassion, spirituality and the infinite realm.

Jupiter is the planet of luck, expansion, abundance.  With it entering a new sign, we can expect it to usher in a breath of fresh air into this stifled world of social distancing.  Bringing in the much needed hope and prosperity into every part of the globe.

On a personal level, where Jupiter traverses in your chart is the area of life with increased luck and opportunities, chances for advancement and expansion. Check both your sun sign and ascendant:

Aries - hidden talents, secrets, behind-the-scene matters

Taurus - social network, friendship, future plans, hopes and dreams

Gemini - promotion, better relationship with mother, positive public image

Cancer - higher learning, travelling, religion, publishing

Leo - investment, partner's money, facing/overcoming fear and paranoia

Virgo - new partnerships, business opportunities, winning lawsuits

Libra - better health, happy daily/work routine, getting on well with colleagues, new pets

Scorpio - love opportunities, leisure time, gambling luck, children 

Sagittarius - harmonious home life, better relationship with father, bigger homes, new family members

Capricorn - positive thinking, better relationship with siblings/neighbours/peers, inspiring ideas

Aquarius - increased earning and/ spending, elevated self esteem

Pisces - a new outlook on life, a new image, general wellbeing

The Crown - Princess Margaret

A recent addiction on Netflix piqued my interest on Princess Margaret's birth chart.  

(Yes, it's 'The Crown'.  Yes I know it's ancient, I'm slow, I just discovered it last week!)

I was amazed to find the chart endowed with 5 planets in dignity and one in exaltation.  However, we all know that being dealt with a fine hand of cards is only part of the story.  It is how we play with it that really matters.

A gregarious socialite, exuding glamour and charm, the late Princess Margaret captured her audience with her bright and cheerful exterior with ease (Sun in Leo, Venus in Libra).  

Within this fashionably-cladded shell encased a softer, emotional core (Moon and Jupiter in Cancer).  A soul who craved to belong to the clan, but at the same time, sought independence and individualism (Uranus in 1st, oppose Venus). No doubt, as picked up by the series, she was proud to be her papa's joy, but wanted to be herself within the constitution.  

Endowed with a sharp tongue and quick mind (Mercury in Virgo), humorous at times, offensive and inappropriate at others (Mercury square Mars), she was a captivating entertainer.  Love, whether it be family or partnership, came through in short and interrupted dosages via a narrow duct (Venus square Saturn), which the late princess may have found to be difficult to grasp (Venus oppose Uranus).  Underneath this beautiful surface lay the thick soup of deep and intense emotions (Moon closely conjunct Pluto), be it dark feelings from sibling rivalry (a Leo feeling overshadowed) or lost love (having one's own choice of partner disapproved by the greater system), the strong Leonine ploughed on, with her head held up high.

Full Moon in Scorpio 2021

Full Moon is a time when hidden matters come to the fore.

26th April 2021 04:32am GMT (Chart 1) / 27th April 2021 11:32am Hong Kong time (Chart 2)

Chart 1
The dark Scorpionic Moon opposes a stellium (Sun, Uranus, Venus, Merucry) in Taurus, expect to have your values and opinions shaken up in the least expected places.  The axis straddled by this full moon can give you some hints as to where these places may be:

1st - 7th:  how you relate to others; personal partnerships

2nd - 8th:  money matters, personal values

3rd - 9th:  siblings, neighbours, communications

4th - 10th:  parents, heritage, home life, career

5th - 11th: lover, hobbies, friends, social circle

6th -12th:  physical & mental health, mundane matters, hidden agendas

Have fixed sign (Taurus - Scorpio, Leo - Aquarius) planets at 7 degrees?  This full moon may bring some surprises your way.

Issues raised:
  • Out with the old, in with the new
  • Problems in relationships/matters swept under the carpet need to be faced head on
  • Have the grace and integrity to admit something isn't working
Chart 2

What may appear to be a painful separation could in fact be a blessing in disguise. 

Familiarity doesn't just breed contempt, it can also encourage inertia, making one unwilling to take the plunge for fear of the unknown.

Are you ready for a change?  If so, clear out the clutter and embrace the excitement ahead!

The Identification of Attachment

Buddha said 'The Root of Suffering is Attachment'.

When we mortals don't get what we want; when things don't go our way, we become upset, or even depressed.  

To remove this pain and discomfort, the simplest way is to detach from our worldly desires.

Easier said than done, but hey, we have a life time (or lifetimes!) to work on this detachment.

Using astrology, here are the kinds of attachments each zodiac is likely to become fixated upon:

Fire Signs

♈️ Aries - Winning

♌️ Leo - Pride

♐️ Sagittarius - Freedom

Earth Signs

♉️ Taurus - Material Comforts

♍️ Virgo - Perfectionism

♑️ Capricorn - Status

Air Signs

♊️ Gemini - Gossips

♎️ Libra - Vanity

♒️ Aquarius - Detachment

Water Signs

♋️ Cancer -  the Past

♏️ Scorpio - Lust

♓️ Pisces - Worry

This list is only a start, can you think of more to add to it?
