JUPITER IN SCORPIO – GODS OR MONSTERS

When Howard Carter peered incredulously into the time capsule of Tutankhamen's tomb, death and life met as one. Three thousand years plus met in an eye blink. And from the artifacts of that ancient burial site we learnt much about humankind's deepest fears and greatest hopes. It's the sort of thing that happens when exploratory Jupiter penetrates the depths of Scorpio.

Jupiter in Scorpio will give new meaning, to once taboo subjects, as faith and understanding will grow out of superstition and fear. And we can all learn, like Carter, that it only takes an eye blink, just one single moment to change a life for eternity. Even death will yield its secrets -Andrew Stimpson, became first person to have been 'cured' of AIDS - the last time beneficial Jupiter transited transformative Scorpio.

Scorpio works at the subterranean level of survival, like a childhood fear of the dark. Jupiter, the planetary guru, reminds that whilst there is a certain wisdom in treating the unknown with respectful caution, only by shining a torch into our own abyss do we tap into and master our greater potential. Having Jupiter, expand our awareness beyond trepidation, spells the difference between the entrapment of sailing off the end of the world toward the confidence to circumnavigate it.

Yet nothing great comes easy. Fear, whether baseless or not, is a real thing. Moving beyond its limitations can be a scary journey. Courage is an essential part of the antidote. It has to be faced directly before it dissolves. Those born with Jupiter in Scorpio seem to make that confrontation part of their life's work.

TOTEM AND TABOO

Horror writer Stephen King is one, selling over 100 million books dealing with the supernatural - Salem’s Lot, The Shining, Pet Cemetery and the Dark Tower series. Alfred Hitchcock, the acknowledged master of film suspense, was another who utilised the fear factor in a string of mystery thrillers, culminating in the cult classic Psycho.

Jupiter in Scorpio's black humour was evidenced via Vincent Price, playing a collage of macabre characters ranging from undertakers to mad doctors. Then there was the poltergeist power of Linda Blair star of 'The Exorcist'. All intensely Scorpionic - conjuring our deepest anxieties, sucking us into the psychological black hole of vulnerability.

Jupiter in Scorpio wasn’t limited to celluloid psychos. Serial killer Ted Bundy, made the darkness of death a reality. Mass murderer Charles Manson was another caught in the base chakra of a Jupiter in Scorpio placement. One who varied between both worlds was the eccentric occultist Aliester Crowley.

Displaying a developed sense of Jupiterian humor, Crowley immodestly claimed to be the Devil incarnate, imbedding the numbers 666 across his forehead. But true to the spiritual mentor side of Jupiter, he rose to prominence as a leading esoteric teacher. Crowley was at one time head of the Golden Dawn, a gathering of occultists drawn from the European glitterati.

Like Crowley, the ‘guru’ quality of Jupiter, placed in hypnotic Scorpio, has the potential to produce magnetic cult leaders. Metaphysician Ron L. Hubbard was one. Hubbard’s seminal work ‘Dianetics’ became the ‘bible’ of the Scientology Church. His reprogramming became a worldwide fad. Deepak Chopra is another of the newage gurus assisted by a Jupiter in Scorpio placement.

ARTIFICIAL LIFE

With Jupiter transiting Scorpio, a young Mary Shelley conceived the idea of an artificial human and the legend of Frankenstein was born. By 1934, again with Jupiter in Scorpio, organs were kept alive outside the body for the first time, which led to Barney Clark being the first human to live on an artificial heart in 1982, again with Jupiter in Scorpio. Death, the greatest limitation of them all, was showing its vulnerability.

The last time Jupiter moved through Scorpio, French surgeons gave the first human face transplant to Isabelle Dinoire. Scientists declared that they had created mice with small amounts of human brain cells as they researched new models for combating neurological disorders.

One who was many years ahead was Jules Verne, the greatest science fiction writer of all. He stretched imagination to its farthest limits, with his prophetic writings of submarines, space travel, and time machines. Verne wasn't limited by the anxiety of sailing off the edge of the world. Quite the opposite. As Jupiter re-enters this domain we witness the beginnings of colonising Scorpio's traditional ruler – Mars.

GLOBAL TRENDS & NATIONAL HOROSCOPES

The First, Fourth and Fifth Republics of France were all formed with Jupiter in Scorpio. It's a placement that has a recurring effect on the nation's history and may see important legislative changes before the year is out. National breakaway movements are a global theme as the largest independence movements of the 20th century, the partition of India and Pakistan took place with Jupiter in Scorpio.

As Donald Trump isolates the US by dismantling agreements like the North American Free Trade, it's linking in with a Jupiter in Scorpio past cycle of November 1993, when NAFTA passed the legislative houses of the USA, Canada and Mexico. The same cycle saw the beginning of the first Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit and dates back to when Nixon dismantled the Bretton-Woods agreement of WWII, by removing the US dollar from the gold standard.

Jupiter had just entered Scorpio back in December of 1898 when the Treaty of Paris ceded the former Spanish colonies of the Philippines, Guam, Cuba and Puerto Rica to the United States. The focus is now on these locations and their US relationship, as Jupiter revisits old territories.

The importance of achieving a Middle East peace deal between Israel and Palestine increases in significance as Jupiter returns to the sign it occupied when international airliners were simultaneously hijacked and burnt at Dawson's field by Black September movement of 1970, something the press kept silent on following 911.

Jupiter was also in Scorpio during Israel's Sabra and Shatia massacres of 1982, or when Hamas was elected to government and the last Israel war with Lebanon took place in 2006 under the same auspices. In Scorpio, Jupiter eventually opposes the Israeli Sun, which may also have legal ramifications for its Prime Minister, or the ICC.

Jupiter was in Scorpio last for North Korea's April 2006 ballistic missile tests and its first nuclear bomb detonation of September 9 2006, as these issues are revisited. It was also here back in 1947, when Harry Truman signed the US National Security Act, creating the Dept of Defense, NSA, CIA, and Joint Chiefs of Staff, all of which may feature in expanded activities upon Jupiter's return.

Wikileaks was formed, and its founder Julian Assange born, with Jupiter under the sign of the dirt digging Scorpion. Judicial Jupiter may also have ramifications here and should at least bring Assange, his embassy rendezvous and political organisation increasingly into the news during its transit.

Much of the crucial action will take place from the first quarter of 2018 as Jupiter moves into the closing balsamic phase of its 20 year cycle with Saturn, begun back in the year 2000. Without going into further detail I have recently written extensively on this cycle and its relevance which can be accessed via this link - the political astrology page.

During the balsamic phase it will also move retrograde in March, concentrating its influence and not revisiting the retrograde degrees until September. Some of these situations will play out over that six month duration.

Two prominent US politicians with their Jupiter in Scorpio are Mike Pence and Paul Ryan. As for Donald Trump - his Jupiter return began December 2016 just after his victory and at the time of his Electoral College confirmation. It ended this past August with Charlottesville.
