Jupiter moves back into Aries on January 22, 2011 after retrograding back into Pisces and sharing a conjunction with Uranus to ring in the new year. Jupiter will make it last of three squares (difficult aspect) to Pluto in Late February. Look to your chart for planets between 0 and 12 degrees Cardinal signs for clues on the areas of your life that are being affected by this Jupiter ingress into Aries.
In true Aries fashion, Jupiter will move through the first sign of the zodiac very quickly! Jupiter will end his time in Aries June 4th when he moves on to the solid ground of Taurus.
Jupiter in Aries is the ultimate enthusiasm for new beginnings, energy to begin something new. Look to your chart for 0 degrees Aries…which house is affected by this beginning? This area of life is the area you, personally, experience the ease and expansion that comes from this Jupiter transit (the planet movement through the sky…this is one of the ways our charts at birth stay dynamic and not static).
Jupiter runs in a 12 year cycle. Look back at the themes that were in your life roughly 12 years ago for hints and clues as to the themes in play at this time.
The square that Jupiter will make to Pluto a month after moving into Aries represents an energy that has been building since last year. It indicates the challenges that come with making big, larger-than-life changes. But, Pluto insures that we will not undertake exciting changes without looking for deeper meaning. This is not just change for change sake…it’s meaningful, life-affirming!
Around this time consider doing those activities, taking those lessons, making changes you’ve always wanted to…now is the time!

For deep cleaning and whitening my teeth, I’ve found that the Ayurvedic remedy called “oil pulling” works better than going to the dentist.
I first discovered this process about seven years ago on the website for natural remedies called earthclinic.com. It requires only a tablespoon of sesame oil (supposedly sunflower oil works too), so it’s easy enough to try. Since my first time, I’ve been blown away by how well it works–it whitens my teeth and draws phlegm from my body with dramatic effect.
Supposedly, oil pulling has other health benefits too–various websites claim that it doesn’t just whiten our teeth and draw out phlegm; it draws out toxins as well, leading to clearer skin, among other things. But I can’t vouch for anything other than what I’ve seen: whiter teeth, clearer lungs.
I’ve had many friends try it, and all but one have had wonderful, similar effects (the one friend didn’t notice much difference.) If you’re curious, here’s what I do:
- Brush your teeth and floss.
- Pour one tablespoon of sesame oil (or sunflower oil) into your mouth.
- Swish the oil around in your mouth without swallowing it for 15-20 minutes, and pull the oil through your teeth as you swish. If your jaw muscles become sore while swishing, you’re working too hard. Relax your jaw. While swishing, the oil will become white and foamy. This is normal.
- After 15 or 20 minutes, spit the oil (now white foam) into the sink drain or toilet. If you choose the sink, be sure to clean it afterward; the substance contains toxins.
- Finally, rinse your mouth out 2-3 times with warm water, followed by some form of mouthwash. (Sometimes I brush my teeth again instead of using mouthwash.)
