This is one of the happier conjunctions the moon makes through its monthly cycle. IS a fortunate location in whatever sign or house in which it occurs. It is a VERY happy and FORTUNATE transit. Of course, for some , it is not so, that is if it conjuncts with ill points in one’s natal chart). A Jupiter Moon Conjunction CAN alleviate most of an ill aspect , such as the current Grand Cross.
The Moon gives STRENGTH to the Jovian energies of generally good time. Because the Moon rules the sign of Cancer and is in its HOME at this moment, your cancer Rising peeps, Cancer Moon and Cancer Suns. PARTICULARLY Early 20 degrees of the sign. IF your natal chart contains Mars or Saturn in these locations, Jupiter will make it BIGGER. Mars energies are stronger and Saturn energies will,likewise, be stronger. A minor ‘pissed off’ becomes an argument, with Saturn, A major lesson to be learned. It Does NOT cause Rage or Depression. This energy, however, is nowhere as traumatic as say, Pluto aspecting those same malefic planets.
“But what about the Grand Cross?” Good Questions! Glad you asked!
This Moon Jupiter conjunction gives more weight to the Jupiter aspects in this alignment. Can be read as bringing a moment of Peace, Partially negating the rebellion of Mars in Aries, Holding the destructive power of Pluto in Capricorn and gains the proverbial “Upper Hand” on Mars in Libra. But just for a Blink of the eye for a Moon Mars conjunction is in works for next week!
Might want to steer clear of the Libras then, They might be a little… flammable.
No No I don’t want this to seem alarmist, However this hit me while I was outside, observing Mars and the Moon by eye . I haven’t the exact time specifics, but just by using my mental calculations, this lunar eclipse does appear to be approaching a conjunction , if not flat out occults, the planet Mars. (Oh that bright blue star just below and to the right of Mars? That’s Spica in Virgo. )
This is significant in that The Sun , which Moon and Mars will be opposing, is in the Home sign (Aries) of Mars.
Ordinarily, when Mars and Moon Come to conjunction, I have noticed an increase in anger or violence. I have also always equated lunar eclipses as a sort of Plutonian energy ( from before we knew of Pluto) . This adds more deep intensity of a less constructive and more Destructive sides of these energies.
I am not intending to make anyone afraid of lunar eclipses or the inclusion of mars ALWAYS .. if there were some form of grand trine active, then the effects would be much moderated.
(A brief aside, wouldn’t it be AWESOME if somone were able to catch the ISS in frame of the eclipsed moon?? )
I also see that there are very few ( or weak) POSITIVE in astrological aspect.
Then there is the “Via Combusta’ the “Burning way”, that extends from roughly 15 degrees libra to 15 degrees scorpio. This is a very important section of the zodiac for it contains several “Maleficent” stars .
How will this turn out ? I think we would be ready for a wild ride with the next few eclipses. as they work their way through the burning road.
