Re-inventing Monika Lewinsky: the grand trine between Jupiter, Saturn & Chiron

The grand water trine between Jupiter, Saturn & Chiron:
Over the coming month Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron link up in a rare grand water trine. Chiron’s orbit is steeply inclined to the ecliptic and it can spend as much as 8 years in a sign (Pisces, Aries) or as little as 2 years (Virgo, Libra). It is this eccentricity in orbit that makes a grand trine involving Chiron a relatively rare event. The last time I was able to bring this particular group of planets together within orb of exactitude was in October 1933, with Jupiter in Libra, Saturn in Aquarius and Chiron in Gemini, interestingly this grand trine also took place against the backdrop of a Uranus/Pluto square.

The grand water trine between Jupiter, Saturn & Chiron:
In 1933 new laws were passed in Germany aimed at destroying the Jewish community, yet figures show a record breaking attendance of synagogues. In October 1933, Albert Einstein left Belgium having made the decision to take up permanent residence in the US and 1933 was a year that many people decided to flee Germany, including the family Frank. One of Chiron’s themes is related to being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Heracles poison arrow was aimed at another centaur, which reflects another important theme, that of dealing with life’s  unfairness. Chiron, as Liz Greene reminds us, is a member of a tribe yet he chose to separate from that tribe in order to become civilized and to serve human evolution.

The grand water trine between Jupiter, Saturn & Chiron: I have been wondering how this current trine might manifest itself. Uranus and Pluto indicate collective situations involving events which are beyond our personal control, we can keep an eye on our spending, we can’t personally alter the national deficit. Capitalism is facing a major challenge right now, and sudden loss of life style, status, and control of affairs are themes that many people are having to learn to accept and deal with. Society is fast changing and the divide between the rich and poor in widening yet Jupiter in Cancer is reinforcing the importance of family, personal relationships, friendship and encourages us to value the simple things in life.  Saturn – the father of Chiron – is currently retrograde in Scorpio. Saturn’s role is to anchor, structure, and deepen experience and it’s recent sextile to and ongoing reception with Pluto – suggests that the lid has already been taken off the box. With Saturn and Pluto retrograde, it is our responsibility to deal with whatever has emerged. Chiron now in Pisces, brings with it the potential to view situations from a radical new perspective, there is an instinctive wisdom involved here which allows us to address painful past situations (Saturn in Scorpio) and learn important personal lessons along the way (Jupiter in Cancer).

The grand water trine between Jupiter, Saturn & Chiron:
Looking for examples of how this energy is manifesting itself I stumbled across Monika Lewinsky, who with transiting Jupiter in Cancer conjunct the natal midheaven, is re-inventing her life mission. Monika Lewinsky, you might recall, had her confidence betrayed by someone she thought a friend (Linda Tripp), and was named, shamed and humiliated during the impeachment of President Clinton in 1998. In an article published in the Guardian newspaper on May 6th 2014, Lewinsky writes.. “it’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress” she vowed to stop “tiptoeing” around her past, adding “I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past.”

The grand water trine between Jupiter, Saturn & Chiron:
Monika Lewinsky has radix Chiron in her 7th house and the first wound suffered on the relationship front was during her parent’s acrimonious divorce in 1987/1988, at which time progressed Chiron retrograde, stood conjunct with her radix Mars, also in the 7th house in Aries. Chiron was still conjunct with radix Mars when in Nov. 1995 the relationship with Bill Clinton started. The affair lasted until March 1997, by which time transiting Chiron had left the 12th, house of secrets, and crossed over the ascendant. As news of the affair broke Bill Clinton made a statement on Jan. 28th 1998, stating categorically “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky“. At this time, prog. Chiron was still exactly conjunct with Monika Lewinsky’s radix Mars, while transiting Saturn was conjunct her natal descendant. Monika Lewinsky was 25 years old at the time. I can’t imagine how she coped with the level of media attention that followed notwithstanding the pain and humiliation as intimate details of the relationship were made public. Possibly the most painful part for her was the denial by the President that there had been any relationship between them.  The Chiron thread here can be found in the following statement taken from the same newspaper article,  “Perhaps by sharing my story, I reasoned, I might be able to help others in their darkest moments of humiliation. The question became: How do I find and give a purpose to my past?” Ms. Lewinsky said she felt she had been used as a scapegoat and that her main ambition for the future is to use her famous name to “get involved with efforts on behalf of victims of online humiliation and harassment and to start speaking on this topic in public forums.”

Chiron is process orientated and it is interesting that Monika Lewinsky specifically mentions burying (Saturn/Pluto) the blue dress and burning the beret (Chiron in Aries, head-wear), symbols of the painful experiences of her former self. Right now her progressed Moon and progressed Ascendant are at 17 degs. 46 Scorpio, so they too are soaking up Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron energy. Positive Scorpio involves a shedding of the skin, leaving the old personality behind, so that new purpose and direction can be given to life. Water is also about immersion, submersion and re-emergence. Jupiter in Cancer symbolizes a birthing and a re-birthing is exactly what Monika Lewinsky is attempting to do.
