Hey all, ready to feel like a kid again with Jupiter into Capricorn?

After twelve months in Sagittarius, Jupiter crosses over the Zero Degree Aries Point (aka AP) and into the sign of Capricorn! The last time this happened was December 19, 2007. Here are the dates for the December ingress:

Jupiter into Capricorn
LA - Dec 2 - 10:20 am
NY - Dec 2 - 1:20 pm
LON - Dec 2 - 5:20 pm
SYD - Dec 3 - 5:20 am

What will Jupiter into Capricorn be like?

Remember, the planets represent an energy that wants to express through you. They are the actors on stage. The sign the planet is in represent HOW that energy expresses. They are the costumes the actors wear.

So think of Jupiter as an actor. He's a king, for sure, big, expansive, adventurous and spontaneous.  He makes grand gestures, brings golden opportunities and boost confidence. Sometimes to the point of self-aggrandizement.

But in this upcoming film titled Jupiter into Capricorn, he wears a subdued cloak. Think grounded, contained, thoughtful. Garb best suited for planning, scrutiny, due diligence, hard work.

Yes, it seems like a 180° contrast, but the combination could be amazing.

How Jupiter and Capricorn Combine

It might be getting serious about growth and prosperity. Turning ideas into practical results. Looking twice before you leap into the next big adventure. Committing to the things you love. Pacing success. Pursuing excellence and not giving up.

Or maybe, feeling like a kid again!

What About the Fall?

It's true. Jupiter is in its Fall in Capricorn.

Think of it like this. Not all planets are equally well disposed in each sign. They have their favorites and their challenges. Jupiter in Capricorn is an inherent challenge because it evokes contrasting expressions: expansion through containment. Spontaneity with planning. Winging it with set goals. Goofing off while working hard. The visionary pragmatist.

There is tremendous opportunity in the contrast.

The Creative Paradox

Put simply, Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius, has the vision. It is energy that reaches out to the field of infinite possibilities and experiences pure creation.

Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, seeks real, tangible results... and so the paradox is born. As long as you have your Jupiter vision, it is perfect, limitless, transcendent. Always expanding. When you turn that vision into reality, it becomes finite and ultimately flawed.

But if the vision stays in the imagination, it never manifests. Once built though, it falls short as the truth of it will never reach the level of perfection you can see in your mind's eye. What to do?

Jupiter in Capricorn is a twelve month span of time to learn how to allow for both. Vision AND manifestation.

How to Allow for Both?

Let's use the goat kid as an example. Surefooted on the cliff's edge. Bounding up the mountain with glee. Adventurous but always coming back to mom when she calls.

Bottom line, there is tremendous opportunity in this contrast if you harness (Capricorn) the horsepower (Jupiter).

Also think about expanding (Jupiter) your financial savvy (Capricorn). According the the Astro Twins,

If you’ve been manifesting consciously, (Jupiter in Capricorn will) feel like someone poured Miracle-Gro on your balance sheet. - Ophira and Tali Edut

Decans of Capricorn

Over the course of the next twelve months, Jupiter rolls through the three decans of the sign. Check the dates and note any shifts or added awareness.

0-10 degrees is Saturn/Saturn ruled. December 2, 2019 to January 15, 2020

Pure Capricorn. The healthy ambition is well developed here, along with practicality and general desire for self-sufficiency. Very capable. Can be reclusive. May work alone, but always working. Expect the biggest contrast of Jupiter into Capricorn during these months.

10-20 degrees is Saturn/Venus ruled (January 15, 2020 to March 9, 2020 and then July 25 to October 31, 2020.

Venus softens Capricorn with increased sensuality, artistic affinity and refinement. More play, which Jupiter will love. Must watch overindulgence during times Venus is stronger than Saturn (the time of Venus in Libra). More social, less introspective. It's a blessing that Jupiter in Capricorn will spend over five months in this decan. There is much less contrast with the additional ruler Venus.

20-30 degrees is Saturn/Virgo, March 9, 2020 to July 24 and then November 1, 2020 t0 December 20, 2020.

Mercury's rulership of Virgo lightens Capricorn with a swift and alert intellect, sharp wit, fresh curiosity and subtle flirtation. Just note it can be critical if unhappy or feeling trapped. Needs practical and intellectual means of expression. Open the windows and doors. Jupiter in this decan can get a hell of a lot of research/study done and come into their own as the speaker, teacher, wise owl.

Conclusions

Take a look at the Capricorn sector of your chart and track Jupiter's transit there. Note any aspects he makes, and the decans he passes through. Think of how this will be blessing it for the next twelve months.

Remember, you have the chance to feel like a kid again, in all the divers and contrasting ways possible.

Enjoy!

Finding the Final Dispositor

FinalDispositor1Hi Everyone. I thought it would be fun to revisit the path to the final dispositor.

Definition

A dispositor is a planet that rules the sign another planet is in. The Final Dispositor is just like is sounds, where the buck stops. You can follow the trail of any chart and see where it leads.

Ready to follow the path? In the image above, (based on the chart below) starting at the bottom, Pluto is in Capricorn, ruled by Saturn. Saturn is the dispositor of Pluto.

Saturn is in Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter is the dispositor of Saturn.

Jupiter is in Libra, ruled by Venus. Venus is the dispositor of Jupiter.

Venus is in Pisces, ruled by Neptune and Jupiter. Neptune is the dispositor of Venus (and Venus and Jupiter are in each other's signs, aka mutual reception.)

Neptune is in Pisces, ruled by Neptune.

Moon is in Leo (today) ruled by the Sun. The sun is the dispositor of the Moon.

The Sun and Uranus are in Aries, ruled by Mars. Mars is the dispositor of both.

Mars is in Taurus, ruled by Venus. Venus is the Dispositor of Mars.

Venus is in Pisces, ruled by Neptune. Neptune is the dispositor of Venus.

Q. Can you see where all paths lead and which planet is the Dispositor or the chart?

What does the Final Dispositor Mean?

A. Neptune as the planetary 'final dispositor' means the mystical god of the sea has the final say. See this as a chance to glimpse behind the veil. When you open your mind to the magic of the universe, that which was inanimate comes alive. There is a message there if you stop for a moment and listen.

Note: Dispositors are not used by all astrologers though I find them very insightful, especially from a Law of Attraction perspective. The dispositor of  a planet can help pinpoint what things boil down to. Following the path can reveal a major key to the eternal goal: Know Thyself, super helpful in a deliberate creator's evolution.

Another interesting thing to do is find the final dispositor of your Asc. It adds new meaning to 'chart ruler'.

Those taking the "Karma Course" will want to follow the trail of dispositors of their 12th house ruler.

List of Planetary Rulerships

If this is all new to you, don't rush. Take your time to memorize the planetary dignitaries/rulers. Here are the signs and their ruling planets for reference. Also, check out our PDF on Planetary Dignities.

Aries - Mars
Taurus - Venus
Gemini - Mercury
Cancer - Moon
Leo - Sun
Virgo - Mercury
Libra - Venus
Scorpio - Pluto (Mars)
Sagittarius - Jupiter
Capricorn - Saturn
Aquarius - Uranus (Saturn)

If you have your own chart in front of you, have a go at working out your final dispositor. You might end up with one, or several, or a mutual reception feedback loop (for example I have Moon in Aquarius and Uranus in Cancer so those two are in a continual strange loop, but the rest of my chart boils down to Mercury in Gemini).

Conclusions

Think of your final dispositor as having more strength and purpose in the chart. Their message, what they symbolically need and want and have to offer, can be more important to us than we might first think. Bottom line, when we honour them, life moves forward in a more authentic direction.

Are you sailing with this wind, or against it? Work out your final dispositor and see.

Shout out in the comments if you get stuck or need a hand.

Update (there will be a lot of these with Mercury now Rx)

I've had several emails asking what happens when there is more than one final dispositor, or an endless feedback loop of two or more planets. Here's an example from the lovely Mhr. Let's take a look.

Two rulers - Moon and Saturn - and Sun/Uranus in mutual reception.
Two rulers - Moon and Saturn - and Sun/Uranus in mutual reception.

In this case, the Moon is its own final dispositor, Saturn disposes everything else by traditional rulership and Sun and Uranus are in a mutual reception (each others sign) loop. Venus by modern ruler is disposed by Sun/Uranus loop AND by Saturn.

We would say that in the emotional realm, the inner world, the Moon in Cancer is very strong. She's super sensitive, aware of others moods, remembers every feeling, and is introverted when it comes to expressing those feelings. (Sun in 4th concurs but look at that Uranus in 10 - pulling at the sun, squaring the Asc - v. extroverted on some level. Career needs to be 'out there', emotions do not. Private.

Then there is Saturn, disposing (traditionally) everything else. More focus on ambition, accomplishment, becoming self-sustaining and individuated.

The mutual reception acts as a circuit breaker if the Moon is too attached to the past, or sun in 4th too attached to family. The Sun and Uranus can swap places, the sun shining in the 10th via individuation, independence and career recognition while Uranus cuts ties with family IF they are holding her back from her own path.

This is just a brief and isolated look at Final Dispositors, but hopefully it gives you an idea of how these rulers can play out in the chart.

Thank you Mhr for the question and putting your chart up.

Another Example of a final dispositor LOOP

Marilyn_dispositors
In this image you can see Jupiter is in his own sign and there is a perpetual loop between the Sun, Mercury and Venus, all being in each others signs.

Here is Marilyn's chart, so you can follow along. We'll start with the outer planets and work our way in.

Pluto is in Leo which is ruled by the SUN.

SUN is in Virgo, ruled by Mercury.

MERCURY is in Libra ruled by VENUS.

VENUS is in LEO, ruled by the Sun. See the three way LOOP. Sun to Mercury to Venus to Sun. That LOOP is where everything but Jupiter ends up.

Neptune is in Libra, ruled by Venus (back to the Sun-Mercury-Venus loop)

Uranus is in Cancer, ruled by the Moon, ruled by Saturn, ruled by the sun, (back to the Sun-Mercury-Venus loop).

Saturn is in Leo ruled by the sun, (back to the Sun-Mercury-Venus loop).

Jupiter is in Sagittarius, his own sign. Jupiter energy is PURE Saggo.

Mars is in Scorpio (traditional ruler but we're using modern) ruled by Pluto in Leo ruled by the Sun, (back to the Sun-Mercury-Venus loop).

And back to Venus - Mercury - Sun Loop.

Finally, Moon in Capricorn rulerd by Saturn in Leo, ruled by the Sun, (back to the Sun-Mercury-Venus loop).

So all the planets but Jupiter are 'beholding' to the Sun-Mercury-Venus loop.

We don't always end up with a neat, single final dispositor. There can be loops, pairs of mutual receptions AND several planets in their own sign.

You can see through this technique why planets in their own signs are 'stronger' simply because the energy isn't pulled in any other direction.
