Jupiter in Capricorn slaps Bernie Madoff

My, how the mighty have fallen. In this picture, Bernie Madoff looks more like a tramp than a millionair. Though we might perhaps wonder why someone who is responsible for ripping off so many people is being allowed back to his penthouse at all. You or I would be sitting behind bars… and that’s for sure. The planet that interests me in all of this, I must say, is Jupiter. Jupiter? Yes Jupiter. We tend to think of Jupiter as being all benevolent – but in this we are mistaken. A more balanced view would be to view Jupiter as a sort of cosmic wheel of fortune. Now your Up…. Now your Down. In Greek mythology, the first child of Jupiter, was Fortune. On old coins we see that in one hand she carries the cornucopia, symbolising her power to bestow favours, in the other she holds a rudder. The rudder symbolises her power to change the direction of a person’s life. She smiles…. while handing out gifts, but she smiles equally sweetly while someone chokes on a fish bone. It’s all in the game my dears. 

So Jupiter is now in Capricorn, the sign of old money, of old boy’s networks. The sign more than any other that says “the end justifies the means”. Money, wealth, status… Capricorn, Capricorn, Capricorn… that is negative Capricorn. Positive Capricorn gives a -beep- about money, the sign is after all also deeply spiritual. This is the sign of light victorious… that dispels the darkness of ignorance.

So it seems that Jupiter in Capricorn really does’nt have all that much to offer the super rich. The planet is in its fall here, so its powers are severely debilitated. What it can do however is quicken the fall. Jupiter has the ability to speed things up and through its links to fair play and justice,  it has succeeded in exposing the rottenness at the heart of the boom years. The wheelings and dealings of the super rich have been laid bare like some doggy bones for us to pick over. It is now up to Pluto in Capricorn to clear through the mess to see if any of the old system is worth keeping. Painful times ahead for sure.

Come on guys, it’s Christmas. At this festive time of year, let us offer our praise and raise a glass to Fortuna…. Oh…and let’s hope that Justitia is blind folded, and that people like Bernie Madoff get the sentence they deserve. “Cheers”
