What is Truth? Jupiter in Aries

Positive Jupiter in Aries: Faith in yourself, your truth, your actions. Negative Jupiter in Aries: Fear that supports the belief that only your truth is real. Who is to say which is right and which is wrong? Stand up for what you believe. If it feels right, then it is.

Jupiter holds the holy grail containing the alchemical ingredients of diversity, honesty and faith. Mix in the passion and assertiveness of Aries and this brew comes to full boil.

Jupiter entered territorial, warrior Aries on 1/22/11.  Passionate truth boils to the surface. Ask yourself if you want to act or react? There are more than 6.8 billion people living on earth, and swords are clashing–verbally, mentally, philosophically, physically.

But what is truth? It is in the eye of the beholder. Most wars are begun due to philosophical differences. Wake up in San Francisco, and two people of the same sex slow-dancing together won’t get a second glance. Place that same couple in Houston, and there might be trouble.

Can you take a stand without bloodletting? Can you imagine a peaceful outcome without giving up your position–and letting someone else having theirs? Mahatma Gandhi said, “Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.”

So is it really no pain, no gain? Or can you take a step backward, hold your tongue, loosen your fist, look your “enemy” in the eye and see their humanness? This is how war is won. How peace is made. And how, in these volatile and uncertain times, you can stand on opposite sides of the same fence and, even if you disagree, allow. Take this stance and you find freedom.

Get into the car and drive on the wild side!

It’s time to shift gears from 2nd to 5th. If you’ve been moving through life at 140 Horsepower, upgrade to 510 HP. The pedal’s to the metal as you swerve into the fast lane-and you’re jonesin’ for still more speed. Passions run high and hot, tempers short and quick. You don’t want to behave. Patience is just a concept. Recklessness courses through your veins.

Take charge of your life–do it your way. Veer off onto the road less taken. Honor the fierce desire for independence. Refuse to cater to rules that choke off your authenticity. And hey! Keep in mind that you’re not the only one accelerating. This urgent itch is under everyone else’s skin. As you hit the road, keep this quote in mind: “People don’t do things to you. They do things for themselves.” (Author Unknown)

During May and June, hot, insistent astrological winds strike, fierce and adamant harbingers of change. Turn into them and you’ll be standing eye-to-eye with your inner warrior. This will inspire right action.  Cower under their force, and you’ll be stalked by meaningless conflict and confrontation.

On 5/27/10, insurgent Uranus hurtles into “me first” daredevil Aries. Judicious Jupiter treks into the same sign on 6/6/10, expanding the need for autonomy and passionate individuation. As Eleanor Roosevelt once declared, “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.”

Don’t look for approval. You don’t need it. Pioneer new wild, wooly and downright magical frontiers. Liberate, individuate, live your passions. Feeling your heart race? That’s how alive you are. Now buckle up and head on out!

With zest and zeal,
