Theme: The Medicine of Surrender
By Dawn M. Harrison (WildWitchAstrology.com)
This month, the cosmic dance between Jupiter and Neptune reaches a peak, as they join in a conjunction on April 12th, and continue their dance in Pisces through May 10th.
Though they join in conjunction roughly every 13 years, this meeting between the planet of expansion and growth (Jupiter) and the planet of transcendence (Neptune) is happening in the ethereal and mystical realm of Pisces – something that only happens once every 166 years. And, since both Jupiter and Neptune rule the sign of Pisces, this conjunction is especially powerful.
In Astrology, all conjunctions represent a potent alchemy – a merging together of two energies to create something that neither could become on its own. In the case of Jupiter and Neptune, we’re talking about bringing together the medicine of Jupiter – expansion, growth, wisdom, understanding, the higher mind, faith, and boundless enthusiasm – with the medicine of Neptune – transcendence, compassion, forgiveness, empathy, mysticism, dreams, spiritual union, and divine connection.
There is deep healing in this alchemy – the kind of healing that dissolves the oppressive walls of the heart and the straight-jackets of the mind. This is the alchemy that invites you to elevate and to lay your burdens down on the altar of the one and only thing that has never failed us – true, pure, limitless, and fierce Love.
Think of this conjunction as the seed that seeks to take root in the caverns of your heart that are most in need of the medicine of hope that it brings. Perhaps it is the dream of freedom you had given up on, or the vision of joy you had forgotten, or the belief in a better world that had almost faded into the abyss.
Now is the time to surrender whatever it is within you that is in need of spiritual renewal and healing, knowing that surrender is not about giving up or giving in. Surrender is about trust.
This conjunction forms soft contacts to the North Node in Taurus and the South Node in Scorpio, and is joined by a waxing Virgo Moon and a sextile between Saturn in Aquarius and the Sun in Aries. The contact with the Nodes invites us to unclench our hearts in order to free up our precious energy to fertilize the ground beneath our feet; while our Virgo Moon and Sun-Saturn sextile remind us of the power that exists within committed action that is taken in faith.
With Astrology, timing is everything.
It is no coincidence that you are here – in this time and in this place – and part of the collective that is meant to embody the archetypal significance of this conjunction.
There is a place within your heart and within your life that is primed to receive this alchemical seed. Take a moment and lean into the call…And then, remember – Hope is not lost.
Every dream that ever lived can still be resurrected.
And, there is healing to be found in forgiveness, trust, and the medicine of surrender.
