It’s a Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 9, 2017 and Jupiter also stations direct in Libra on June 9th.
What do people believe anymore? What really is the truth? Jupiter stationing direct will emphasize such big existential questions. Jupiter is a planet of philosophy, and as the ancient ruler of Pisces, has much to do with beliefs.
Libra is about balance of truth and justice, and everywhere we turn these days we see evidence of untruths and injustice. Jupiter and Libra both relate to journalism and the media that is far reaching. Jupiter does not represent what is simply local affairs, but speaks to issues and events that are world-wide. The Jupiter in Libra square to Pluto in Capricorn configuration has been creating a roller coaster ride of media and corporate power. We have seen the mainstream media and the independent journalists that are not corporate owned having major debates and disagreements about what is true and what is not. With so much conflicting information, perhaps purposely so, it’s difficult to discern who is telling the truth anymore. Perhaps creating confusion with information overload is the best way to hide the truth… it all just ends up being a whole lot of babble.
Jupiter in Libra has seen a huge emphasis on what is now dubbed as Fake News. We’ve also seen any dissenting voices, questioning the corporate owned mainstream media (Pluto in Capricorn vs Jupiter in Libra), essentially quashed on Facebook and YouTube – the places where independent journalists thought they could have a voice. Facebook censors posts that disagree with the mainstream media output with algorithms and labels them fake news, and YouTube has demonetized users accounts in an effort to quiet the alternative voices of independent journalists. According to the current alignments in astrology, this happening now, is not surprising at all.
Add to that, we are now living in echo chambers of information, thanks to algorithms that show us more of what we think about and believe, and dismissing and hiding anything that does not support our own points of view. This only solidifies biased points of view further.
Who is right and who is wrong? Well, Jupiter going direct now, is going to bring out a lot emphasis on this issue of truth.
Libra is also the sign of duality and naturally leads to a lot of debate. Biased points of view are rampant, and where there is bias we know there is no objectivity, but to find the real truth there must be an objective point of view.
Can you see how all of this has been demonstrated in our society these days?
Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter represents wide-open spaces, long distances, and hence travel and immigration. Well, we know how much of an issue immigration is for millions of people these days and how it is a global issue of consideration.
We see the world is becoming more polarized, and the with us or against us mentality has increased significantly.
What are your thoughts, opinions and maybe even solutions to the issues the world is facing these days? Are you biased? Have you picked a side and stick to it no matter what?
I think many of us are just tired of the ridiculousness of how society is developing, at least the version of reality we see propagated in the media. Information is power. Consider how whatever topic the media focuses on, is what goes on in the minds of millions, until the next topic is selected for hyper-focus. To be able to impact that many people is power. Do we believe that those that have the power have our best interest at heart?
As someone that strives to live a conscious lifestyle, at peace and harmony with nature and others whenever possible, I have a difficult time trusting the intentions of those that wield power at the top, to be honest. Monsanto is just one example of the type of results we see in the world by those with corporate power. War is another.
With Jupiter in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn I can’t help but notice that the corporate media has the power to sway millions of minds on a daily basis, and even lead those millions into supporting war against others. I can’t help but notice that governments buy and sell billions of dollars worth of war machines, weapons and bombs that kill millions of innocent civilians. I also can’t help but see how the financial system based on debt has caused distress to millions. So I can’t help but ask, when I see such examples of power in our world, do those that rule really have our best interest at heart?
Just imagine how different the world would be if there were no lies, and only truth.
With this Full Moon in Sagittarius and Jupiter stationing direct in Libra, what can you do to be a part of making the world a better place where real truth and honesty flourish?
