Jupiter Uranus mission complete!

Well, folks, that’s it. My fifteen-year obsession with Jupiter/Uranus conjunctions is over. Time to move on to “pastures new”.

It is my hope that this extensive archive of articles and research will be of interest and value to astrology students and researchers – and their teachers – both now and in years to come. The archive includes a study of the behaviour of those two planets over 2,500 years, and the fascinating correlation which I have found to exist on the macro scale between the movements of  Jupiter/Uranus conjunctions and the unfolding of human history.

I had a faithful group of 10 volunteers from across the world who stayed with the project of reporting the symbolic impact of the 2010-11 Jupiter/Uranus conjunctions on all their lives. Their feedback is to be found in the “Tales from the Wild Ride” series in the archive, along with all their charts, data and names withheld for confidentiality. I am most grateful to them for their participation.

Perhaps it is apt to close on a personal note. What clues are there in my horoscope to this long-running Jupiter/Uranus obsession? Have a look – perhaps the bowl shape led by Uranus/10th, closed by Jupiter/3rd, is a clue? And the Asc/Desc  falling on the Jupiter/Uranus midpoint, maybe?

Quite a number of readers have asked me about MY Jupiter/Uranus year 2010/11: what disruptions and changes have come into my life? I said I would not say anything about my own life until the end of the project.

Given the conjunction sextiling the MC/North Node, and squaring a natal Mars/Uranus conjunction in the 10th, the answer is – quite a few! Firstly, my husband and I have unexpectedly become grandparents, our granddaughter having been conceived during the week of the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Aries in early June 2010.

Secondly, I am off to be a student again in the autumn of 2011, to do a two-year part-time  MSc degree in Counselling Studies at  a distinguished Scottish University. My aim is to update my counselling skills qualifications, and to use the compulsory research module to ground me in more formal and rigorous research methodology than I have employed to date. My aim then is to use the second year’s 15,000 word dissertation to sketch out the basis for my third book. And who knows what else may arise therefrom?

So there it is. Many thanks to all the many readers of this blog, especially those commenters and emailers whose generous encouragement has kept me going at times when I was flagging!

Do drop in on my main blog: Writing from the Twelfth House, and my astrology blog: Astrology: Questions and Answers.

Jupiter meets Uranus 8/6/2010: individual, community, collective….

The “Jupiter meets Uranus” site is taking an exciting turn as we move toward the new conjunction. I have in recent days committed myself (am I mad or what?!!) to doing a follow-up study from the one  I did on the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction of February 1997 “Jupiter meets Uranus – from erotic bathing to star gazing. (UK buyers, click HERE ) Have you got your copy yet?

I am approaching my quota of 20 volunteers who are “plugged-in” to the late mutable/early cardinal energy of  the upcoming Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Aries, and will be sending me their feedback on how it was for them as the observational year (March 2010 – February 2011) unfolds. It is fantastic that they are prepared to do this – and I will be treating their feedback with appropriate care and confidentiality, as I did the 17 participants in the previous 1997 research. So – keep watching this space to see a research study being invented before your eyes!

And there are still a few more places for volunteers with planets/Angles/ Moon’s Nodes in late mutable/early cardinal signs. Just leave a comment and I will contact you.

I have acquired some interesting and lively commentators, most recently Shana – of  http://www.shanatinglipton.com/blog/. In response to a comment of hers, I have written a short piece on some contemporary events which I thought I’d share with the many readers of this site – in the spirit of “here it is – as it happens.”

Jupiter Meets Uranus

from Shana June 2, 2010 at 1:03 am Hey Anne and friends,

I dunno if this constitutes the first celebrity Jupiter/Uranus moment but Tipper and Al Gore divorcing after 40 years of marriage seems kind of Uranus. And having his tropical sun sign in Aries (along with transiting Jupiter and Uranus) could make for a milestone moment.

One for the books?

from Anne : June 3, 2010 at 12:59 pm Hi Shana

thanks for posting this link. The important point to look for in identifying the action of Jupiter/Uranus, in essence, is that it should bring into being, unexpectedly and usually shockingly, conditions which are entirely new. So we need to focus on that – and the Gore split certainly illustrates J/Uranus energy at work as you say. Gore was also born under the tough Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1947 just after WW2, and Saturn/Pluto people feel the harsh grind of that combination at each aspect – we are now at the waning square (from the 1982 conjunction) which is part of the Grand Cross pattern with Jupiter/Uranus in Aries. As I put it in another article on this site, written a year ago:

“The Jupiter-Uranus predilection for seeing no limits, leaping before it looks and challenging the established order expressed through the filter of the rash, angry impetuousness of Aries and locked with the harsh, power-driven determination not to budge of the Saturn-Pluto square, offers a difficult and dangerous picture……”
https://jupitermeetsuranus.wordpress.com/2009/10/31/jupiter-meets-uranus-a-few-thoughts-on-the-201011-encounter/

This is validated today with news of the gun massacre of 13 people (including the killer) and the serious injury of many others in Cumbria, England, UK, by an apparently mild-mannered man who broke through any limit of acceptability (Jupiter/Uranus in Aries) and acted out the worst side of the Saturn/Pluto combination – mass murder. (check out Reinhold Ebertin “The Combination of Stellar Influences” (AFA) p188)

And a nation born under Saturn/Pluto – Israel – is currently attracting international condemnation for its treatment of people of goodwill trying to bring humanitarian aid (the plus side of Jupiter/Uranus in Aries) to ordinary citizens suffering under the Gaza blockade.

Here you see an example of the Jupiter/Uranus in Aries energy field, set in its Saturn/Pluto context, operating at three levels at once: the personal, the community, and the wider collective.

“As above, so below” in all its awesome truth….
