Julia’s 2013

Julia was never going to have it easy this year.  After last weeks’ goings on I was intrigued to go back and have a look at what this year had in store for her, and this is what I found … her solar return chart last year showed that the Sun was exactly opposite Uranus and Square to Pluto at her birthday (29th September).  The Solar Julia Gillard Birthday 2012 SF chartReturn chart is calculated for the time that the Sun returns to the exact position it was at your birth … the idea gives rise to the saying “many happy returns”.  And the chart is an indicator of the energies to expect over the coming year.

So, for Julia, while it is nice to have the Sun in the First House of a Solar Return, suggesting that she would shine and make a strong impression on those around her, the risk of this placement is that it can be quite self-focussed, and fail to see and feel what is going on in the world outside the self.  With the Sun Square to Pluto (in the Fourth House), it was inevitable that she would encounter power struggles that challenged her to transform, and that it would only be through compromise that she would get any resolution from this.  With Pluto in the Fourth House, her base was not secure … and it seems that Kevin Rudd, Simon Crean and Bill Shorten made certain of that!

At the same time, her solar return Sun was exactly opposite Uranus (in the Seventh House), suggesting radical, unexpected and impulsive changes in her partnerships and alliances.  Hmmm … seems that was an opportunity too good for an embittered ex-PM to ignore!

The added challenge for Julia is that her next birthday chart (29th September 2013) is still closely wrapped up in the Pluto-Uranus square, with the Sun only 3 degrees away from an exact square to Pluto, so she will still be experiencing powerful forces to evolve … or evaporate.  Interestingly, Pluto will be right on her Ascendant, suggesting that she will be exuding power herself (something that she might have appreciated a little more of this year) and she will have the capacity for incredible depth of insight (again, something that might have been useful this year).  The bonus for Julia with her next birthday chart is that the Moon and Jupiter will be in her Seventh House, so she should at least find comfort, meaning and growth in her personal relationships. And with her solar return Sun in the Tenth House of social status, and Uranus in the Fourth House of home base, it will be fascinating to see what stage she plays on over the next year or so.

Sun Square Uranus 4th July 2013

The Sun just keeps on getting invovled in the Pluto-Uranus energies … it is exactly square to Uranus this morning.  As always with Uranus aspects, expect the unexpected today!! Disruptions, disputes, disorder … anything that challenges the stability of normalcy.  Sounds like fun, and especially during Mercury retrograde, the only thing to do is to chuckle at the chaos.  Listenting to the radio this morning, I was amused to hear that the peak hour roads are even more of a mess than usual … who’d have thought?!? Take care, and smile ….

Jupiter in Cancer

Jupiter, the planet of optimism, fortune and expansion, moved into Cancer this week, the sign of our foundations … our home base and the place where we find our emotional security.  So, expect the next twelve months to be a time when we think big about home and expand our base.  For some this will be a time of family and expanding families.  For some it will be a time of exploring the depths of our psychological base … the place where we feel at home, where we find out security.  And for some it will be a time of nurturing, think big dinner parties for extended families.

Jupiter transits the zodiac every twelve years, taking on average about a year to go through each sign.  And wherever Jupiter is transiting your chart  is the part of your life where yo

u are growing and being challenged to take on more of life.  If you know your birth chart, look at the House where Cancer is, as this is the area where you have the opportunity to expand your consciousness over the next year.

For Cancerians, this is the beginning of a new 12-year cycle of growth and progress.

Expect Cancerians to be in an expansive frame of mind over the next twelve months, as they begin new projects and adventures … if you’re hanging around with a Cancerian, encourage them to be open to new opportunities this year.  This is the year for them to be putting their energy out in order for those projects to manifest (and if you think that through, it also means that Geminis will have been doing this over the last twelve months … etc.).

Similarly, for Leos, this is the last year of their twelve year growth cycle, so it is a time of fulmination of the plans that they started about 12 years ago … if you’re a Leo, think back to what you were doing around 2002, and see what growth path you were initiating then and where you’ve come since.
