Jupiter Trine Pluto ~ July 7, 2011

Original image source unknown.

Last month, Jupiter entered Taurus on June 4th, then immediately linked up with Neptune (insight/spirituality/the subconscious) on June 8th. And last weekend on July 2nd, Jupiter aligned with Chiron (what's broken and needs healing). Now, Jupiter trines Pluto on July 7th.

A trine is harmonious alignment between at least two planets. Jupiter trine Pluto offers a chance to overcome difficulties. Perhaps, a breakthrough resulting from a breakdown or a transformation through surrender/the act of relinquishing release, we stumble onto the answer we've been searching for or the clarity we've been seeking. In letting go, we rise above and are able to 'see' the bigger picture which enables us to carve a path towards our destination.

With Pluto involved, there must first be a confrontation of truth, of recognizing our own on shadows, of becoming aware of unhealthy habits or patterns. Through that process of realization, there must then be a 'death', elimination, purging before there can be a renewal, a transformation, a breakthrough.

Jupiter reminds us of the best that life can offer, gives hope, offers opportunities, expands our horizon, and fosters personal growth. Pluto is the (dwarf) planet of power, able to regenerate, renew, transform through digging deeper and deeper until the root cause is revealed so that it can be destroyed, expunged. Both Jupiter and Pluto transit earth signs (Jupiter in Taurus & Pluto in Capricorn) so, for most of us their influence could be something related to our material world -- security, income, structure, a change in what's been the norm/accepted?

This can also be experienced as a grounding/stabilizing energy following the Jupiter sextile Neptune which may have opened our spiritual eyes onto something we've been missing, and Jupiter sextile Chiron where old wounds might have resurfaced so healing can occur.

Jupiter trine Pluto occurs on July 7th at 6 degrees. Those celebrating a birthday on the days approaching to this trine's perfection may find this energy present throughout their Solar Return year (astrological birthday year).

This is the first of three occurrences. Jupiter will once again trine Pluto on:
  • October 28, 2011 at 5 degrees and 19 minutes
  • March 12/13, 2012 at 9 degrees and 19 minutes
Those with natal planets/house angles around these degrees may experience this Jupiter-Pluto trine more powerfully than others.

For me, with my natal Cancer-Sun at 5 degrees, Jupiter sextiles my Sun while Pluto opposes it. Pluto additionally squares my natal Uranus (triggering the natal square between my Sun and my Uranus) and sextiles my North Node (triggering my natal Sun-North Node sextile and Uranus-North Node quincunx)...which means, I better change or else!! I wouldn't want to find out the 'or else', especially with the recent Cancer-Solar Eclipse square my Chiron (what's broken and needs healing).

How might Jupiter trine Pluto manifest in your world? Look to the Capricorn and Taurus-ruled houses in your natal and/or solar charts to gain insight and see if you have natal planet/house angles on or around 6 degrees of fixed or cardinal signs.

Unsure if you have natal planets/house planets near 6 degrees of fixed and/or mutable signs? Cast your own birth chart at for use as reference -- birth date, time, and place required.

Alternatively, I am also available for personal consultations tailored to your needs. Are you celebrating a birthday? Or know someone who is? Schedule your session for a Solar Return (birthdays), 3-Chart Reading (detailed natal & overall outlook for the next 12 months) or 24-month Pluto Transit. You may also request a quote for a more customized reading tailored to your needs. You might also consider giving a loved one the gift of insight.
