Jupiter Direct Station in AQ 10.13.09

Update Oct 13 2009: a post on this morning’s Senate Finance Committee’s vote on Health Insurance legislation has been published where I’ve linked today’s <a href="http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2009/10/senate-finance-votes-on-health-reform.html
Jupiter Direct Station and its implications for today’s vote @10:00 am edt.

You may not be surprised to see which of America’s natal planets arose at 10 am in Washington DC!

Original post begins here:

With Jupiter’s Direct Station becoming exact on Oct 13, 2009 @ 17AQ10, I thought a peek might be of interest, a peek at the first minute/second that the Jolly Giant, that Guru of All Good Things, clocks in as ‘direct’ – in Washington DC @ 12:34:18 am edt, Hour of Mars 28Can15; chart-ruler Moon 13Leo54 (conjunct Pres. Obama’s natal Sun) is in 1st house of the Direct Station of Jupiter chart, and thus rising.

In the chart you can see Jupiter 17AQ10 has just left 8th house and lumbered into 7th house of Partnerships, with US natal Pluto setting (conj Desc.)

Mars opposing natal Pluto isn’t a comforting time (especially when meeting upon the Nodal Axis) yet it occurs approximately every two years or so (sans Nodes most often), thanks to Mars’ orbit in relation to a fixed position – US Pluto of July 4, 1776, 27Cap33 Rx in the ‘Sibly’ chart (5:10 pm LMT, Philadelphia.)

Click the above link to view the Direct Station chart where you’ll see Mars/South Node ascending, opposite US natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx conjunct transiting NN 26Cap26 – and conjunct US Inaugural Mc 2009 26Cap.

The Pluto/Chiron midpoint appeared at Mc on Inauguration Day (Jan 20, 2009; noon in DC), along with other transiting midpoints of power: Jupiter/Pluto, and Neptune/Pluto, a circumstance ongoing.

This late Capricorn pile-up I have groused about previously – several times here and elsewhere – so I won’t re-bore you repeating myself except to say that government and its backers are very busy consolidating power now. The presidency is where the energy manifests in the larger world.

And Mars in Cancer, ruled by the Moon, is always touchy and busy instigating on the home front.

Jupiter Direct Station degree:

Rounding up to ’18AQ’ we have the ‘End of Progress’ degree, Sabian Symbol: “A Man Unmasked”, yet I’m optimistically using ’17AQ’ because 10 minutes in less than half a degree (30 mins) – I’ll ’round down’…

’17AQ’: “A Watchdog Standing Guard”…PROBITY…

pos: unswerving faithfulness to ideals and a real determination to achieve them;

neg: unfriendly instincts and groundless suspicion.

(From “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology’ by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones.)

This word picture reminds me of Sirius, the Dog Star, who barks/announces that the mundane has become sacred as small actions symbolize the collective and the common yet uplifting rituals in our daily lives.

Tremendous success is possible when Sirius contacts planets in our charts, yet this success may ‘burn’ us. One of Sirius’ nicknames is The Scorcher; ex: US natal Sun ’14Cancer’ conjuncts the zodiacal position of Sirius. Ouch. “I’ve got blistas on ma fingas.”

Is it possible that for America, it’s always been a question of: scorch, or be scorched…?

Be that as it may, be sure to read the comments under the post from a reader, Jed, who gives us a pertinent analysis of the Jupiter Direct Station chart, okay?

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
