In December 2019 Jupiter came to its weak point of debilitation in Capricorn. That initiated a long period of ”adharma”, the absence of truth and natural order of things, which lasts to the end of 2020. When the natural truth of dharma is low, people value truth less and tend to act out of impulsiveness and fear, ignorance or greed or narcissism, out of disregard for responsibility. Most easily this reveals itself in politics, finance and economy, and in the modern ”deep fake” bias of news networks and social media.
Sun is the way we identify with The Self. Saturn is focus on the bare essentials of survival. Saturn influencing the sun gives a limited sense of ”who am I?” When this limited identity passes onto the full moon, it emphasizes needs that support survival of the ego-self. Jupiter/dharma is absent, so this ”survival” is taken as the ”truth”. Strong Mars with strong Saturn is like trying to drive your car by stepping simultaneously on the gas (Mars) and the brake (Saturn) pedals. Ketu is also there, to provide chronic frustration of efforts.
This is important for our internal awareness and the choices we make as individuals. Saturn gives excellent results but with a price: we have to work for it. Saturn is the celestial karma yogi, so the work required means developing our internal ability to Praise. For every instance of apparent ”injustice” (lack of dharma) we encounter, we need to cultivate an internal reaction of Gratitude. Do what needs to be done, but this is not about the act, this is about the focus of internal awareness.
Even though weak, Jupiter resides in Uttarashada nakshatra, ruled by the Vishvadevas, the sons of Dharma. Uttarashada provides the power to ”gain a victory which can never be lost.” Lack of dharma is challenging us to live a life of fulfillment and success, while remaining unattached and fully absorbed in your eternal transcendental being, on the inside. Being true to who you are, will automatically reveal the delusional nature of lack and suffering.
