The Jupiter/Pluto Square Happening Now: How To Bring Down Walls And Rebuild Trust?
Jupiter is about to move onto Libra 16, and, it will be squaring Pluto which is now and has been for some time on Capricorn 16. Although it doesn’t last a very long time, this particular pass of Jupiter/Pluto (there will be another one in the near future) this is a BIG transit as it embodies so much of what is going on now, particularly in the political scene.
Jupiter/Pluto square can be very much about ‘my word is law’, ‘I’m right and you’re wrong’, ‘my faith, religion, beliefs, attitudes, etc, are the correct ones’, and, there can also be ‘what the hell just happened and how can we get out of this?’ Arguments and disagreements over morals, beliefs, laws, etc, are rampant, and, I suspect, are likely to get even bigger as more weirdness comes out of the current political landscape.
The desire to win can be overwhelming, in whatever sense of the word ‘winning’ takes on. I think that a lot of people realise that it is going to get worse before it gets better.
Jupiter is about to go onto Libra 16: AFTER THE STORMS OF WINTER, A BOAT LANDING STANDS IN NEED OF RECONSTRUCTION

AFTER THE STORMS OF WINTER, A BOAT LANDING STANDS IN NEED OF RECONSTRUCTION
Commentary: ‘After the Storms of Winter, a Boat Landing Stands in Need of Reconstruction’. A ‘Storm’ has swept through and damaged, or ruined, some usually secure part of life. The ‘Boats’ cannot dock at the ‘Boat Landing’ if it is destroyed or shaky or insecure. Situations, possessions and people may be compromised, or even ruined. Our foundations can be rocked almost to the point of complete destruction. Now there’s the need for ‘Reconstruction’.
Oracle: In the situation facing you, there needs to be a plan put into action to get things repaired so that life can move on. Even situations built on solid foundations can quickly be swept away by the tidal forces of emotion or life’s circumstances. ‘After the Storms of Winter’ implies that there is a need to take stock of what’s happened. Rebuilding and restructuring is timely and probably very necessary. When there is “nowhere to dock” your life or emotions, it can take time to recover your feet and get things back under control. You may have to ‘Reconstruct’ some usually secure part of your life, but in the future you’ll be wiser and you’ll build something stronger. Rebuilding some area of your life will require patience, commitment, faith and a sense of security and purpose. Sometimes, through facing devastation, we can truly come to grips with our own power. Without positive attitudes, and a reinforced attitude, the ‘Reconstruction’ may, at best, be shaky or temporary. You may ask whether ‘The Storms of Winter’ have really finished and warmer conditions can be expected or trusted. Picking yourself up and rebuilding after some harrowing or dangerous collision with reality can lead to a better, stronger and safer sense of where you can feel safe and harbored.
Keywords: Temporary loss. Emotional repair. Tools to repair damage and build a new life. Having faith that the worst is over and recovery can begin. Calling in the experts. Taking time to put the pieces back together. Working to ensure the safety of the community. Insurance claims. The fragility of man’s world in the face of nature. Returning to work.
The Caution: Making excuses instead of fixing things. Feeling emotionally swamped and powerless. Being torn apart. Leaving things a mess. Feeling shot to pieces. Letting things wear down to the point of collapse. Having nowhere to dock. Arguments and violence.
Meanwhile, Pluto, is and has been for weeks and weeks now, on Capricorn 16: SCHOOL GROUNDS FILLED WITH BOYS AND GIRLS IN GYMNASIUM SUITS
What is it that the youth are inheriting on this planet? What’s with all the talk of women’s bodies and their rights to have the say over what they do and what happens to them? What is it with all these sex scandals, whispers, innuendoes?
They call it physical education, but it feels like gym to me. Lisa Simpson
Anatomy is destiny. Sigmund Freud
The only reason I would take up jogging is so I could hear heavy breathing again. Erma Bombeck
ACADEME, n. An ancient school where morality and philosophy were taught./ ACADEMY, n. [from ACADEME] A modern school where football is taught. Ambrose Bierce
Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them—a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill. Muhammad Ali
A school without football is in danger of deteriorating into a medieval study hall. Frank Leahy
Commentary: ‘School Grounds Filled With Boys and Girls in Gymnasium Suits’ brings to mind images of youthful people, doing their exercises, playing with and enjoying each other on a physical level. The ‘Boys and Girls’ learn how to interact with each other in the ‘School Grounds’. There is the sense that they are having fun, regardless of their individual level of fitness. Some will be very good at sports and be the stars in the ‘Gym’ whilst others are there because they want to join in the fun or because they are instructed to be there and have no choice. Many of their relationship lessons are first learnt here.
Oracle: This Symbol asks whether you’ve been neglecting your physical well-being of late. Now is a good time to reestablish an affinity with your body and your vitality. Spontaneous enthusiasm and the joy of being truly “alive” and youthful can regenerate and revive and bring about carefree contact with like-minded people. Nourishing the body with good nutrition, being in the outdoors, enjoying the company of others and the competition of sport can enliven everyone’s spirits. Physical exercise is a necessary part of the education of young people’s minds and bodies. Giving youth the opportunity to learn how to play sport and the benefits of the concepts of “fair play” amongst their peers leads to a healthy society. However, discipline may need to be brought into this situation. Children picking on others for things such as not being clever physically, or not having a perfect body, etc., should be discouraged as everyone has their own special talents and needs. With this Symbol, there can be a form of “conscription” where one has to wear a uniform when they may not want to.
Keywords: Developing muscular coordination. Sexual energy, attraction or satisfaction. Playing, marching, competition, rivalry. Singing songs of unity. New anthems for the young. The search for identity. Being able to accomplish things on the physical level. Physical fitness. Uniforms and uniformity. Gymnasiums. Exercise equipment. Conscription. Being one of many. Learning how to get along with the opposite sex. Bodybuilding. Level playing fields.
The Caution: Physical showing off for sexual attention. Relationships based on purely physical or sexual attraction. Having to do things that one isn’t capable of physically doing. Not joining in.
The above degree – Girls And Boys In Gymnasium Suits is about much more than the Oracle denotes here. It is also about the future for all of us…
Jupiter is about to go over some of the most ‘difficult’ of the Sabian Symbols in mid-Libra…. Libra 18: Two Men Placed Under Arrest, AND, Libra 19: A Gang Of Robbers In Hiding.
We are in for an interesting ride… especially as Jupiter and Uranus are going to oppose each other smack on Christmas. Uranus will be on Aries 21: A BOXER ENTERING THE RING… but that is for consideration later. We have enough to think about now…
