The jupiterian function ‘rE’ (representation of Existence)
by Richard Pellard
English translation by Julien Rouger

The interpretation examples that we are suggesting are very far from being exhaustive: they only show and outline a general frame describing the issues of the planetary function. They should therefore not be taken literally. Each being brings indeed its own responses, more or less original, to the questions raised by a planetary function. There is no magic formula. Through using the R.E.T. and of the Theory of Ages and combining logic, observation and imagination, you will be able to develop a thousand other possible meanings, a thousand other variations on the same theme.

Jupiter ‘rE’: ‘E’ sense of concrete ► ‘r’ power of decision Jupiter ‘rE’: ‘E’ sense of concrete ► ‘r’ power of decisionGenerally: switching from the duo-duel to the unique. Act according to clear objectives. Codification, schematization, classification of facts and things. Known experimental physics: positivism, the reduction of phenomena to simple laws. The representative acts, the clear, clear and concrete choices that are necessary. The lived, the felt, the feelings are transformed into standards, models, goals, projects, images, principles, symbols. Illustration and highlighting of material, tangible facts. Concrete confrontations are reduced to a single point of view: arbitration, negotiation or alignment of conflicts on a power, a norm.

Jupiter ‘rE’: ‘E’ sense of concrete ► ‘r’ power of decisionPsychologically: show good pragmatism, be reasonable, responsible in what you do and make it known. Put yourself in the spotlight and increase your prestige or standing through your works, your actions, your concrete achievements. Confront to win, fight to be recognized. Conform one’s existence to the rules of life in society. Knowing how to say things, legislate, negotiate on behalf of his group and in the best of its tangible interests, its ambitious goals and objectives. Impose with authority his common sense, his ability to compromise and his realism. Finalize your actions, make them useful. Make value judgments about beings and things. Choose rewarding responsibilities.


Positive formula: ‘rE’

The positive characteristics of the jupiterian function are the sense of the concrete (trio Extensive existence with Mars and Saturn) and the decisive willpower (trio intensive representation with Sun and Uranus).

“Extensive Existence”: the sense of the concrete

Jupiter ‘rE’: ‘E’ sense of concrete ► ‘r’ power of decision ‘E’ family — Jupiter-Mars-Saturn: sense of concrete — extensive ExistenceThe Jupiterian is above all an organized pragmatist. Dynamic, jovial, good-natured, enterprising, he takes the realities of life very seriously, of which he does not intend to lose any opportunity. He has know-how, common sense, a practical logic that allows him to tackle concrete problems head-on and direct them to his best interests. Empirical and reasonable, concerned with economic prosperity, he knows how to draw simple, useful and profitable lessons from his experiences. He knows how to put order in his feelings of things, discipline his experience, prioritize his desires and needs, regulate his activity according to precise standards. Confident, sure of himself, he feels at ease in the world of material realities which he makes the springboard of his ambitions. Expansive, playful, rather optimistic, he gives himself the means to be able to enjoy healthily and in abundance the good things of life without ever losing sight of his practical interests. Each of his actions is useful, productive, organized, oriented towards a specific purpose.

“Intensive representation”: the decisive willpower

‘r’ family — Sun-Jupiter-Uranus: power of decision — intensive representationThe Jupiterian knows what he wants, and gives himself the necessary means to obtain it. Ambitious, full of authority, imperious, concerned about his social impact, he fully intends to play his role in the society to which he belongs. He is always ready to take the initiative to exchange, negotiate, cooperate with others, make himself useful to show off. He has talents as a pedagogue, lawyer, diplomat, leader of men and possesses the art of language to the highest degree: he knows how to communicate his wishes with ease and clarity, explain his intentions, convince his interlocutors of the good—based on his vision of the world. His judgments are imperious, struck at the corner of common sense. Worker, manager, volunteer, gifted with a sense of organization, he stands out as a man of experience and is good at putting classification, logic and order in everything he does. He wants to be recognized for his concrete skills, for his ability to comply with the rules of the social game, to make himself useful if not essential.


Negative formula: “non-R”, “non-e”, “non-tT”

“Extensive non-Representation”: lack of communicative sociability

In negative, taken by his need to impose, to convince others of his benefits and merits, to make demonstrations of pompous eloquence, the Jupiterian has extreme difficulty in registering in disinterested human relations, in the joy of communication pure and useless. He talks too much, which reduces his ability to listen, and seems ready to sacrifice his ideals, his desires and his curiosity on the altar of his social ambitions. His joviality and his intrusive and exuberant eloquence mask a false relaxation, an inability to give others smiling attention devoid of intention. The expectations of others do not matter to him if he has nothing to gain from them.

In positive, the Jupiterian knows that he has nothing to expect from anyone to conquer his social position, and that it is not through charm, seduction, babbling and idealistic and unrealistic demands that he will succeed in fulfill his ambitions. Logical and organized, he prefers to rely on his efforts, his know-how and his know-how.

“Extensive non-Transcendence”: lack of prospective imagination

In negative, the Jupiterian is too reasonable and conformist in his thoughts and in his vision of the world to let his imagination run wild and give birth to fruitful oddities and visionary strangeness. His common sense and his stable and conservative mentality are opposed to the emergence of the unknown, to the manifestations of elsewhere, of the invisible, of the mysterious. By dint of aligning his experience and his actions with the standards and social norms in use, of constantly seeking cooperation and contractual negotiation, he loses all creative originality, all listening to the requirements coming from the depths of his being. Wanting too much to be useful, he simply no longer knows how to be.

In positive, the Jupiterian knows how to oppose his sensible and logical reasoning to the useless and parasitic ramblings of the imagination. to intuitions “awesome” but most often unverifiable or fanciful, he wisely prefers sure lessons from things. He knows how to organize himself practically to protect himself from the irruptions of the unforeseen.

“Intensive non-existence”: lack of affective sensoriality

In negative, to remain in conformity with the norms of his social environment, the Jupiterian tends to repress the natural expression of his likes and dislikes, his emotions, his feelings, his moods. There is for him what is done and what is not done: there is no question of giving free rein to his affectivity since the latter has no use, no interest. The vibrations, tremors, desires and demands of the body are for him synonymous with disorder. He is ready to put a cross on his feelings, on his affects, if this can favor his upstart ambitions. His too reasonable reason ignores or despises the impulses of the heart, the realities of reacting sensibility.

In positive, the Jupiterian prefers to contain with reasonable and pragmatic decisions the tumults of an experience without safeguards, of a capricious reactivity and without project. He knows that all cooperation is based on a collective rule of the game which requires everyone to put aside their affectivity to better serve the general interest.

Jupiter ‘rE’: ‘E’ sense of concrete ► ‘r’ power of decision

“Intensive non-transcendence”: lack of critical thinking

In negative, when the Jupiterian demonstrates a critical mind, it is in a judgmental, arrogant way: definitive and contemptuous sarcasm from someone who doubts nothing, who holds manifest authority and refuses self-criticism. In fact, he lacks subtlety, discretion, hindsight, restraint: intrusive, pretentious, theatrical, fearing loneliness and questioning, he is allergic to any form of in-depth questioning, introspection. His summary judgments take no account of the complexity of beings and situations. The unknown, the marginalized are banished from his standardized, normalized mental universe where everything is labeled and put away in its place.

In positive, the Jupiterian knows how to protect his jovial, ambitious and optimistic temperament against any intrusion of discouragement, skepticism or despair. Why bother with abstractions, when there are so many useful object lessons? Whatever happens, he wants to stay positive, to see the good side of existence.

Les significations planétaires

par Richard Pellard

620 pages. Illustrations en couleur.

La décision de ne traiter dans ce livre que des significations planétaires ne repose pas sur une sous-estimation du rôle des Signes du zodiaque et des Maisons. Le traditionnel trio Planètes-Zodiaque-Maisons est en effet l’expression d’une structure qui classe ces trois plans selon leur ordre de préséance et dans ce triptyque hiérarchisé, les Planètes occupent le premier rang.

La première partie de ce livre rassemble donc, sous une forme abondamment illustrée de schémas pédagogiques et tableaux explicatifs, une édition originale revue, augmentée et actualisée des textes consacrés aux significations planétaires telles qu’elles ont été définies par l’astrologie conditionaliste et une présentation détaillée des méthodes de hiérarchisation planétaire et d’interprétation accompagnées de nombreux exemples concrets illustrés par des Thèmes de célébrités.

La deuxième partie est consacrée, d’une part à une présentation critique des fondements traditionnels des significations planétaires, d’autre part à une présentation des rapports entre signaux et symboles, astrologie et psychologie. Enfin, la troisième partie présente brièvement les racines astrométriques des significations planétaires… et propose une voie de sortie de l’astrologie pour accéder à une plus vaste dimension noologique et spirituelle qui la prolonge et la contient.

Pluton planète naine : une erreur géante

par Richard Pellard

117 pages. Illustrations en couleur.

Pluton ne fait plus partie des planètes majeures de notre système solaire : telle est la décision prise par une infime minorité d’astronomes lors de l’Assemblée Générale de l’Union Astronomique Internationale qui s’est tenue à Prague en août 2006. Elle est reléguée au rang de “planète naine”, au même titre que les nombreux astres découverts au-delà de son orbite.

Ce livre récapitule et analyse en détail le pourquoi et le comment de cette incroyable et irrationnelle décision contestée par de très nombreux astronomes de premier plan. Quelles sont les effets de cette “nanification” de Pluton sur son statut astrologique ? Faut-il remettre en question son influence et ses significations astro-psychologiques qui semblaient avérées depuis sa découverte en 1930 ? Les “plutoniens” ont-ils cessé d’exister depuis cette décision charlatanesque ? Ce livre pose également le problème des astres transplutoniens nouvellement découverts. Quel statut astrologique et quelles influences et significations précises leur accorder ?

Enfin, cet ouvrage propose une vision unitaire du système solaire qui démontre, chiffes et arguments rationnels à l’appui, que Pluton en est toujours un élément essentiel, ce qui est loin d’être le cas pour les autres astres au-delà de son orbite. Après avoir lu ce livre, vous saurez quoi répondre à ceux qui pensent avoir trouvé, avec l’exclusion de Pluton du cortège planétaire traditionnel, un nouvel argument contre l’astrologie !
