When Jupiter is aligned with Mars, Jupiter is aligned with Mars. I don’t know if that is considered favorable or inauspicious but I do know it most likely has nothing to do with affecting our daily lives. We look to the stars for guidance, to father figures, or to holy men when we should be questioning and guiding ourselves. We are the cause of most of our troubles, but then if we did this we wouldn’t have anyone to blame. Many of us don’t want to take responsibility; we won’t admit to being the captain that ran the ship aground. No, it was the compass’ fault, or the wind’s fault, or the water’s fault and on and on when we should have been looking at the approaching shoreline.
