I got a notice in my email from an Astrological mailing list telling me that “love was in the air” with this transit. Well, Jupiter is expansive and exciting and Venus is after all the planet of romance. Well my love life has taken a dive. I was hoping for some sort of rescessitation with this promising transit.
Did Astrology fail? I am here all alone wondering if I should walk (yeah, Mars and Uranus opposition took out my car’s electrical system) so walk to the all night store and grab some ice cream and Almond Rocha bars. What happened?
Let’s look at the planets themselves and the degrees and aspect. The obvious, a Trine… a Trine is easy and smooth, very promising. Good so far. Venus is in Virgo at 13ish degrees. Peregrine? nope… was Jupiter Peregrine? Nope. So they have the ability to act… So what happened? Venus is in Triplicity half of the day (every time she travels through day houses) There is the optimistic “I am a princess thing I had going on (I can be quite the Diva). Venus is oddly in Term and Face with herself. Haa haa the Diva thing, I told you! 13 Degrees Virgo is also Conjunct my Natal Pluto… yeah, obsessive princess demanding her attention. But Venus is in her Fall in Virgo. Ouch, this is like being in Cinderella Hell, eternally watching the clock strike Midnight and not being able to do anything about it. Jupiter, the optimistic promising giant, half of the time is in Triplicity also during Day house transits. He is in Jupiter’s own Term and Mars’ Face. AND again we see Jupiter is ALSO in it’s Fall and is Retrograde. The Prince’s Eternal Hell of finding just a glass slipper over and over again.
I am sure it played out a bit different with all of us, since we have our own personal chart it ran against, but the promise of fairy tale love stories… that would be a stretch for anyone’s chart. So what happened with me? I did get a new refrigerator (Jupiter huge! I could hide bodies in there… that was the Venus conjunction with Pluto humor) and I have been eating none stop for the last two days. I have thrown out there that I am now “officially” dating again…and the www knows it! I have gotten hit after hit on MySpace from foreign countries (5 continents today alone!). I applied for a job I really want at a music store (Venus=music Jupiter=loud music) and found out today that the “manager” is trying to stack the deck to have his own friends hired… I am taking it up with the upper management tomorrow… wish me luck, Jupiter rx is slowing down.
How did it turn out for everyone else out there?
