ANTISCIA Dec/2011 Jupiter+Neptune=Uranus... cont.

The long-standing contra-antiscia of Jupiter|Neptune to Uranus (at 0 Aries) continues to persist through all of the month of December. Keywords for Ju|Ne include: pretend or false luck, faulty investments, and hypocrisy. Uranus signifies surprises, breakthroughs or breakdowns, and earthquakes (literally and/or figuratively). In the book Rules for Planetary Pictures, Alfred Witte described this combination, Jupiter + Neptune = Uranus, as: a sudden collapse, bankruptcy, in addition to, suddenly getting money which is easily earned - sounds like fake money flooding the banks to me. Further into December another somewhat long-standing antiscion occurs between Saturn|Chiron, in Libra and Pisces respectively.

To use this list, simply blend the meanings of planets in combination. Bold dates indicate the strongest day for a particular planetary expression. Dates showing only one planet indicate its ingress into a Cardinal sign (or 15 degree Fixed) i.e. it is sitting directly on the Cardinal axis, and so should feature prominently that day. Those marked with an asterisk are antiscia formed around the midpoint of two Cardinal signs, which is always at 15 degrees Fixed. Those with a (c) indicate contra-antiscia, a symmetrical arrangement around the Aries/Libra axis, which like contra parallel may be more stressful or unstable.

Antiscia refers to reflections or shadow points symmetrically arranged around zero degrees of any of the Cardinal signs - Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. Antiscia has been noted and utilized by astrologers since at least the 4th century; Julius Firmicus Maternus mentions antiscia in his Mathesis. Because these are arrangements falling around the Cardinal axis, and all life on earth moves in sync with, and is affected by, seasonal change, planets in antiscia and contra-antiscia are thought to manifest powerfully in the world.

ANTISCIA Nov/2011 Jupiter+Neptune=Uranus

Below you'll find a list of planetary antiscia for November. 

This month the never-ending-story of Jupiter|Neptune (speculation, money losses, fuzzy values) gets even louder as the planetary combination moves within a half degree orb on the cardinal axis by November 16. Due to the apparent retrograde motion of Jupiter this contra-antiscia will stay in effect through January 2012! More keywords for Ju|Ne include: pretend or false luck, faulty investments, and hypocrisy. Or, a more positive expression: idealistic and optimistic aims, working for a humanitarian or idealistic cause without interest in personal gain. To quote Michael Munkasey in his book on midpoints: "a legal system where ethics or morals are based upon favors or payoffs." We have a problem, and Uranus, symbolizing revolutionary impulse, is pounding on the door. With Uranus' presence in very early Aries - and lying at the direct midpoint of Jupiter|Neptune - this revolution is far from over. The exposure of flamboyant and immoral financial expenditure and accumulation is not only underway, but is going to get even more pronounced. In his book, Rules for Planetary Pictures, Alfred Witte used words like: "sudden collapse, bankruptcy" to describe this combination (in addition to "suddenly getting money which is easily earned"). Likely a continuation of rose-colored-glass-smashing events will erupt, and with all of this occurring on the cardinal axis (the world's stage), I'd say some real change may be in the air.

In the list below, bold dates indicates days of strongest expression; an asterisk * indicate points falling around 15 deg fixed; and the (c) for contra-antiscia, like contra parallel, is thought to be more challenging, like forces in opposition. Looks like a bumpy ride for Jupiter+Neptune=Uranus endeavors.
