Are you ready for some lightning rod translation?
Jupiter Rx and the North Node in Virgo are the focal point of a Yod that's active from February 26th to February 29th.
Mercury in Aquarius makes a sextile to Uranus (at 18 degrees Aries) creating the base of the Yod. Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) encourages Mercury's freedom of speech. Words and ideas will be edgy, independent and possibly shocking. But Uranus and Mercury form tough inconjuncts to Jupiter and the North Node in Virgo (ruled by Mercury). The Yod focal point will conduct the energy of the base planets, even though there is a fundamental incompatibility. Virgo's precision, practicality and obsessive attention to detail will be rattled by the Mercury/Uranus electrical charge. But that electrical charge must be grounded, and this will happen in earthy Virgo. Think of it as a reverse lightning rod, with electricity coming up from the base.
The tension of a Yod makes it a difficult and powerful configuration. Jupiter will magnify the unexpected shot of information, which may result in a whirlwind of excess details. It feels a bit panicky, and there could be overcompensation as a pile of facts (many of them irrelevant) are thrown at radical ideas.
And yet, radical news must be filtered (and grounded) by selecting appropriate details/solutions. Mercury's confrontational shouts must be translated into something practical and easily digestible. Jupiter magnifies the message, and the North Node ensures that this is about much more than an interesting email or odd conversation. The inclusion of the Virgo/Pisces Nodal axis means this is an essential part of the path forward. Taking the issue (in the Pisces area of your chart) and concluding or developing it via the North Node. The tension from Mercury/Uranus will help you with this.
Chiron in Pisces is close to the South Node, so there may be a few winces as sensitive issues are exposed. But groundbreaking solutions (the weirdest idea is the one the works) may follow those winces. Echoes from the Jupiter/Chiron opposition are possible.
Here are the dates and degrees for this Yod:
- Feb 26th: sextile Uranus at 18 deg Aries
- Feb 27th: inconjunct Jupiter Rx at 19 deg Virgo
- Feb 29th: inconjunct the North Node at 21 deg Virgo
To sum this up, you're grounding creative/disruptive but important information, and translating it into essentials that work in the mundane world. If you've been banging your head against the wall of logic, this could be your last -ditch, so-strange-it-has-to-be-inspired fix.
If you have natal or progressed planets, angles or Nodes from 18 to 21 degrees Aquarius, Aries, Pisces or Virgo, you'll feel this most strongly.
Note that Venus in Aquarius will activate this Yod from March 2nd to 5th, and I'll write about that closer to the date.
