A DIY quick tip, is to have a ponder on Saturn as the trunk, and Jupiter is the encouragement to climb.
There are two ways you can look at this:
In 2017, Saturn and Jupiter both change Zodiac signs.
I see Saturn in Sagittarius as really inspiring everyone to discern between what's fake and what's real, i.e. "fake news." This is a tough one in a media environment that's all-over-the-place and much of it steeped in disinformation. I predicted the rise of independent media, and with trust in Mainstream media at a historic low (30%), there's a hunger for trustworthy info framed in a way that's coherent.
Saturn in Sagittarius exercises the intuitive capacity "to know" truth from falseness, and begin to trust that sense. And to catch the excitement -- and sense of stability -- that comes with adapting to expanding awareness.
I wonder if Jupiter in Libra is upping that sense that "beauty will save the world*." I look forward to Jupiter into Scorpio in October, and it comes in the days before Samhain, for some mysterious journeys and revelations.
You can look at how transiting Saturn aspects your planets, and which House, for the trunk. And in what way Jupiter is encouraging you to climb.
If you'd like me to look at this in your chart, I'm bringing back the 1/2 Hour Reading, and offering it at a sliding scale rate -- see Readings. I have more time to do Readings, and possibly on the same day by phone or mp3.
I saw this old oak recently in Jacksonville, FL, where there's a park built around it, down by the St. John's River. The branches have on them resurrection ferns, an amazing plant with superpowers. They can survive extreme drought and there's a cool time-lapse of them coming back to life on that link.

Happy New Year Molly!( Or maybe it would be better to say that after this upcoming full moon in Cancer on January 12).

We've talked since you commented, but I just wanted to say thanks for your response here. I don't know how much I'll write about astrology from now on, but there are definitely things to share, and I'm pondering that now. I also think of Spring Equinox as a beginning to the year in some ways. I know I'm seemingly in dormancy with a few things, though there's a lot of visioning going on. Talk with you via mp3! Molly

Thank you so much Petra. I remember exchanging emails with you one time, if I'm not mistaken.
