Now that Jupiter has completed its annual sign change (this time from Libra to Scorpio), it’s time to look around. Maybe it’s because Mars (in Virgo) was moving to oppose Chiron (in Pisces) when Jupiter made its ingress. Maybe it’s something else, but current events do seem to feature a lot of what you might frankly (if not politely) call pissing contests.
Predictably, many participants in these diuretic exchanges are men who are in possession of power. Almost uniformly, the parties to this seemingly expanding pattern of conduct have better things to do.
This is not to say anger doesn’t have its place. If there is anybody not angry about something at this time, it’s likely they are either profoundly evolved or not paying attention. Indeed, it would be fair to say that anger is sometimes a crucial factor in getting things done.
In practical experience, however, rage tends to be more corrosive than constructive. Especially so if grudge comes along for the ride. Even more so if agendas contested through excessive verbal urination (comparative manhood, for example) are not nearly so important as more worthy issues being neglected (like survival).
So, the question logically comes up: Can we really expect this gratuitous, unending and public exchange of euphemistic bodily fluids to continue unabated for the next twelve months? Furthermore, is there anything any of us can do about it?
We can invest some hope in the late, great Rachelle (“Rocky”) Gardiner’s assertion that astrology is not destiny. You can also do your part by refusing to participate with petty pissers in kind.
Instead, you can direct your attention to what is probably an abundance of authentically vital issues in your personal life. You can also, if you are so moved (and in your own way), insist that your putative leaders be just as accountable, mature and responsible as they expect you to be.
There are too many people dying unjustly, and before their time. The ugly stench of bigotry is exacerbating by the day. Wealth and power continue to conceal, excuse, and sometimes even glorify serial abuse. Love and tolerance are increasingly being disparaged, even (or perhaps especially) among those whose ostensible spiritual practice is based on exactly those two principles.
There is work to be done. Real workers take care of their personal needs privately and effectively in order to be productive. Yet, somehow, a lot of people who should be working for you are in fact defiling public life and the greater good because they have been enabled to believe it’s all about them.
If you would like to see the pissing contests stop, don’t support them. Don’t encourage them. Don’t respond in kind. Work the upside of both Jupiter and Scorpio: do your part to get things done, even if it means a wiser use of anger. Encourage the selfless and comfort the needy. Leave the polluters of public discourse with nobody left to listen.
Jupiter in Scorpio has started. When it is over, it will have been what we made it. For now, it’s pretty clear what it could, but does not have to, be.
