What is the main thematic issue arising for humans throughout this next Jupiter in Sagittarius transit?
ANSWER: King of Cups reversed
King of Cups reversed lacks emotive astuteness entirely and is in fact a hot mess. A court card in the tarot, King of Cups represents a person, personality type or way of being and in the reversal position, the shadow side is unleashed.
The King of Cups reversed is a human being who rejects femininity entirely and as a result, has not developed emotional awareness, leading to unhealthy, toxic and even violent habits. This person is a rapist, alcoholic, or serial abuser who operates from erratic emotions and delusions. Wherever the whim takes him, he’ll go, because he has no emotional control, submerging others like a tsunami. Let’s also remember, the King court card possesses power in the tarot, so despite being unfit to lead, the King of Cups reversed still wields authority.
This guy blames his abuse on other people. He is completely unable to take emotional responsibility. There are cover-ups and he doesn’t possess the ability for empathy. Although reprehensible to some, his actions are largely accepted because this type of stunted emotional development is commonplace, with more people taking on some version of these personality traits than not.
Taking a cold hard look, it’s clear the King of Cups reversed is rampant in society, in all genders and despite social stratum or affiliation. In a more benign form, King of Cups reversed is the litterer who throws out garbage in the street gutter, not caring whatsoever about clogging coral reefs in the ocean or clamping a seal’s mouth with the remnants of his trash. This person is also the lady at the bar who is hell-bent on complaining about how sh*tty her life has always been, neglecting to acknowledge the toxic gossip emanating from her mouth on a regular basis and the complete indifference for other people’s welfare and wellbeing.
A common theme here is the lack of interconnectedness to the whole, which water as an element just cannot do. Whether in solid or liquid form, water bonds together, it is always part of a greater whole, possessing an intuitive awareness of connection to a force greater than any one particle.
The fact is, femininity in all its forms, emotional, social and metaphysical, has been repressed for thousands of years and the result of feminine subjugation is rampant disease, particularly of an emotive or intuitive nature. Femininity got shut down and as a result, a lot of folks are shut off from their connection to the whole, resulting in a whole bunch of crazy ass, inconsiderate and narcissistic people. The lost arts and magic of femininity, largely shunned by the mainstream, has lived on in secret, but now the universe demands it be uncloaked and infused into every part of our shared reality.
An empathic takeover driven by the force of the feminine divine makes a subtle but all-pervasive emergence into every facet of life while Jupiter is in Sagittarius from November 8 to December, 2019. This celestial femininity expansion affects humans in showing unequivocally the dynamism of emotional intelligence and intuitive forces, which have long been shunned as invalid.
Jupiter, considered a great benefic, although in my personal practice it is not always such, can be salubrious if there is balance and a desire for wisdom. If it’s not balanced, it can exacerbate deleterious symptoms. Muted femininity is an imbalance, because it denies an aspect of nature that needs to be present for health. Feminine reemergence and amplification through Jupiter in Sagittarius attempts to restore balance to this world.
In modern astrology, Jupiter rules Sagittarius, a masculine sign, but the ancients say the planet also rules Pisces, a feminine sign, which is part of the reason why the forecast for the month is so water-dominant with King of Cups reversed as the main message significator.
The other reason why watery realms, which are spiritual and emotional in nature, are so prominent in November is that King of Cups reversed points to Queen of Cups, establishing an essential relationship between the two. In this tarot dynamic, the Queen of Cups (a double water entity) emerges to lead the way so King of Cups (fire and water) can become upright, come into his power and heal.
This stuff is so literal, because the world’s climate is actually getting hotter and what extinguishes fire? Water. A natural dynamic and balance of power among the elements takes hold.
In everyday life, the King of Cups reversed tarot dynamic with the Queen of Cups highlights a myriad of issues and possibilities. Matters of emotional responsibility, violence against women and children, the state and availability of water, mental and emotional health, gender, honor, metaphysics, psychic ability, water power, sensitivity, sex and creation are all prominent themes.
What is really shifting here though, as forecasted in the October horoscope, is power dynamics. The King of Cups reversed is literally pouring his boiling hot water into the Queen of Cups’ chalice, firing up whatever elixir is in her drink. This is a huge time for women and femininity demonstrated through the mutability and power of water, an element that can nourish and destroy.
Water is obviously an essential part of life, but so is intuition, which is connected to water in the metaphysical interpretive arts and has been erroneously invalidated by kings in power as superfluous for thousands of years. The water wisdom gets real as f**k during the Jupiter in Sagittarius transit, watch out for the flood.
Check out these dates for some SIGNIFICANT events to take place:
Jupiter is in Sagittarius from November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019. Consider this transit the start of a 12-year cycle, since Jupiter rules Sagittarius, this is the beginning or renewal of this planet’s energy patterns. Beginnings are also endings, hence the water archetype playing out in real time, both renewing, cleansing and drowning, birthing and taking things out.
Also consider Jupiter’s ancient rulership, the sign of Pisces, as another very important forecasting factor. Jupiter will next be in Pisces from December 30, 2021 to December 20, 2022, so we’ve got four years of feminine expansion taking place.
Finally, the North Node enters the cardinal sign of Cancer on November 7, corresponding with Jupiter’s ingress into Sagittarius. Cancer totally corresponds with Queen of Cups vibe as a powerful force of the feminine divine. The North Node signifies becoming, future direction for the unfolding of the soul, so this is yet another indication of where we’re heading.
KEY NOVEMBER THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - Ace of Cups reversed: Ram, preternatural love, as well as empathic connections to energies and beings who have not yet materially manifest, are huge thematic issues throughout November. Ace of Cups, in a reversed or upright position, typically signifies a child or some type of offspring, and in November you may find yourself drawn to begetting. The Cups suit is tied to water, so yes, this is emotional, but there is also a hugely spiritual and ineffable component that is all-encompassing and powerful in its envelopment. Since Ace of Cups is reversed, this is an inner or more subtle awakening process around giving birth that may not be obvious to others, so don’t let it drive you crazy, thinking you’re nuts or whatever, that’s not the case. It’s a powerful feeling and intuitive insight leading to awakenings and births others outside of yourself or your spiritual dimension do not have access to.
Taurus - The Hanged Man: Bull, the month of November kicks off a spiritual awakening process that lasts through the duration of this Jupiter in Sagittarius transit, which ends on December 2, 2019. Visions emerging from providence are more relevant than ever and are begging to be incorporated into your daily experience. Be it through meditation, running around the block, chanting, making music or art, whatever your method of zoning out and tuning in to connect with a higher power, incorporating a daily or at least weekly ritual to do so is imperative. This is about funneling the divine order through your soul and life experience on Earth at every moment, imbibing the magic of existence in every second. Disconnection from the divine sullies the very real, palpable and magical nature of reality.
Gemini - Six of Cups reversed: Twin, any type of lingering emotional depression or bummer ways of being are up for examination in November. Trying too hard or overcompensating by acting from the hurting inner child who is desperately in need of support has been going on without awareness for too long. Hear your long persistent emotional woes by truly mourning whatever sentimental needs were not fulfilled long ago, so that you can move on to embrace life with powerful innocence. With emotive residue inspiring action, innocence is lost and expectations create burdens weighing down the gut. These burdens don’t need to exist. Acknowledge, grieve and breathe fresh air into life so you can move forward without the presumption of pain or disappointment.
Cancer - Six of Wands reversed: Crab, the battle is over. Six of Wands reversed turns up to highlight a classic case of post traumatic stress disorder, suggesting November is a great month to tackle nerves and other stimuli within the body that indicate you have to take up arms and go out to combat. The fact is, charging your way through with the perspective the issue is a life or death matter is a defunct approach, as taking on this perspective sullies the wins you have earned. There’s no space for relishing victories when another clash needs to be overcome with brute force, because survival takes over, investing all available energy into overcoming what could potentially take you down. It might take until the end of the month or even December to really fall back into a groove that isn’t sponsored by a sense of impending damage and conflict. Diminishing the stress nerves through the embrace of palpable, present-day accomplishments is the most holistic way to move forward.
Leo - Two of Coins: Lion, November is busy. This month is all about tying up loose ends and getting ducks in a row to support the pathway to moving on. Choices have to be made quickly and efficiently so agonizing over which one would have been better after the fact is a waste of time. You are winning. Keep killing it by tackling demands with complete confidence.
Virgo - Nine of Cups: Virgin, the weeks ahead are all about experiencing satisfaction and bliss with where you have arrived in life. Let’s be real, hellishness is not something you are unfamiliar with, especially after this year, with some flare-ups likely emerging in October. Nine of Cups isn’t the same vibe at all though and is actually delightful. If the day-to-day has suddenly become filled with more ease, comfort and contentment, believe it, this is actually reality. Bask in it… and heal from it too. Falling in love is a true possibility in the weeks ahead and this enrapturing is likely to extend beyond the romantic realm into other areas of life too. The stress became hella overwhelming at times in the very recent past, it was oppressive, but fortunately November proves that life isn’t always arduous and challenging as f**k, it’s beautiful too.
Libra - Water reversed: Libran, something is begging to be emotionally processed. Water reversed calls attention to underground rapids raging inside. These emotions are not easily verbalized and the knowledge is in the feeling. In November, plumb the depths of your psyche and soul to better interpret the emotive and intuitive messaging blaring internally. Something about the power of engaging in reality through partnering with intuition, an infallible cosmic intelligence, is key at this stage of your journey.
Scorpio - Seven of Swords: Scorpion, it’s all about strategy. Seven of Swords calculates and sometimes to great effect, but at other times to dangerous, delusional heights of complication that leads to a severe mental breakdown. Manipulation and contrivance is also a trait of the Seven of Swords, so it is important to walk a fine line with strategic tactics and approaches in November. At the end of the day, you can’t control every single facet of everything, that’s just not the way the universe works, much of reality is born of chaos. Let go of what you cannot control and do not allow the burden of strategy to create extreme dissatisfaction with how events are playing out.
Sagittarius - Eight of Coins: Centaur, issues of mastery come into focus in November. Eight of Coins is a master of his trade, who has put in countless hours to stay on top of the game. The way the Eight of Coins subject has managed to become a complete boss is through dedication, hard work and commitment over a long period of time, this is not an overnight success. There may also be little publicity for the work you’re doing behind the scenes, the accolades come later, so don’t worry about getting people talking right now, as public interest and exposure is not important at this time. The work itself is most important, so get it done. Infuse patience into whatever professional pursuits you are undertaking, because chipping at the task over a measured and stretched out schedule humbly from the background is your key to success. Rushing through and announcing something that is still not ready to be exposed could cause more calamities in the future than anticipated, so look toward the long-term strategy as your point of entry into the accomplishments you’re looking to achieve. This energy is all about embracing the victories you’ve already won. Focus on the good things you’ve got going now, the ongoing projects, don’t expend a lot of energy on new opportunities that aren’t substantive.
Capricorn - Gemini reversed: Goat, communications may have become severely disconnected, confusing and tense. What is the connection here, how do we reconnect and get onto the same page? These are the types of questions flaring up as the landscape for finding common ground is obfuscated by a whole bunch of what the f**ks. The best way forward here is to wait out the weeks in November before making firm announcements or decisions, because clarity is lacking this month. Steer clear of conflict by refusing to commit without full facts and a broad view of the details. In some cases, the clarity may not return until the beginning of 2019, so please take your time with this. It is also important to mention part of this obscurity is being generated by multiple moving pieces. It’s not an easy matter to address in a black and white manner, so allow for the passage of time to put everything together into an interpretable whole. In time, the issue will be presented in solid, digestible form, rather than a whole bunch of random sh*t that isn’t cohesive.
Aquarius - Scorpio reversed: Water Bearer, it is extremely important to pay attention to details in November, more so than usual. Scorpio reversed turning up for your forecast this month highlights concealed opposition in contractual terms that could lead to bonds you are inextricably bound to for a long time, and to make it even worse, these are time frames and liabilities you do not want to commit to. Legacies and what extends beyond death are the types of matters on the table in the weeks ahead, so take your time and don’t be pressured to give your word to something that doesn’t feel right, because it is guaranteed to become a lasting commitment. Also, if you presently find yourself in a state of life affairs that sucks and is unfulfilling, this is the time to unearth what commitments you’ve unwittingly pledged to that are killing your soul. You have the opportunity in these weeks ahead to back out of these ties and reclaim your life with new authority.
Pisces - Ten of Wands reversed: Fish, clear perception of the end goal is necessary before putting the work in to achieve it. Ten of Wands reversed turns up to confirm that yes, there are things that need changing, significant issues, but even though there is pressure to make these transformations happen right now, moderation is still necessary. If you’re experiencing isolation now, wait until the necessary transformations are more clearly defined, because that’s when more help will arrive. Also it is important to note you are not alone right now; this very second, there are so many folks out there who are begging to be at your aid, so don’t put the burden squarely on your shoulders. The Ten of Wands reversed is a message to take a breath and wait, lay down arms and don’t worry about taking on an uphill battle by yourself, it doesn’t actually have to go down like that, so withdraw from the conflict. Chill out and let the universe do its work. The strides being made by the working universe is what’s causing this unsettled feeling of having to tackle something that isn’t quite clear, but hopping up and sprinting to complete a forged “calling” could diminish all of your power in the situation. Forego depletion from desperation in favor of restoration; back off wherever appropriate.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
Strengthen emotional intelligence. Empathic awareness, caring and sensitivity are the strongest assets a person can possess in the years ahead.
Notice King of Cups reversed traits in yourself and others. The King of Cups reversed suffers from mental disease and feeling like sh*t all the time, it’s depressed and sad. The inability to deal with powerful emotions or intuitive insights are other attributes related to this card.
Water pollution, growth of water (rising ocean levels), water changing the geography, water power, all of this gains traction during the Jupiter in Sagittarius transit.
Intuitive power grabs more headlines. Watch for random, intuitively driven developments in all areas, even science, to emerge. It’s like, “I have a hunch”, following the hunch and some big breakthrough happens. The hunches that end up wrong and desperately inaccurate are the ones the King of Cups reversed has. They’re wrong because his emotional and intuitive development has been retarded, so they’re not really coming from intuition, instead stemming from some rational or analytical part of the mind. This is psychology versus intuition; the mind may bridge the two sometimes but they’re totally different muscles.
Women’s agenda on blast. Women in power, taking on civic duties and being involved more in social discourse, as well as the development and the implementation of public order is to be expected.
Water is unpredictable. The essence of this element will shape this next Jupiter in Sagittarius transit. Expect loads of things to oscillate like waves; the energy is unstable in its tidal undulations.
Water in metaphysical interpretation is ineffable, possessing wisdom and knowledge beyond what can be expressed verbally. A lot of stuff will be impossible to explain and is just a deep knowing. Be prepared to glean information from the knowing.
