Jupiter – the astrological herald of luck – entered Cancer at the end of June 2013 to stay there until the 16th of July 2014.
What does this mean for you? What should you bet on until July 2014? Where does your luck lie?
Wherever Jupiter transits in your chart, you enter a new cycle of growth and expansion. Like a magnet, Jupiter draws to you things, people and circumstances that conspire to bring you to the next stage of your development. You are lucky where you find Jupiter, even if you don’t feel like it at the time!
Jupiter takes twelve years to come full circle in the zodiac, staying a year in each sign. So, if you want to get an experiential sense of what’s going on, cast your thoughts back to July 2001-02 (and before that, August 1989-90). No matter how your life has changed since then, is there a common theme? What sort of events expanded your horizons back then? While the events are never the same, a new developmental trend is now underway akin to that of twelve years ago. The new cycle now is replacing the concerns of the old 2001-02 cycle with new visions and possibilities!
Lets Clear Up A Common Misconception… Contrary to popular belief, Jupiter’s transit isn’t meant to be a walk in the park! ‘Lucky’ does not mean ‘easy’. When your life expands, it can sometimes feel pretty scary and overwhelming! Think about what it is like when you decide to build an extension to your house. At first there is frustration and restlessness as you become aware of greater possibilities. You are not quite happy where you are. You want more. With a combination of excitement and apprehension you draw the plans… But then, in come the builders tearing down the walls! Not an easy time for most people… Not if you are a fan of solid structures and a firm handle on circumstances. And even if you are a more relaxed type, you may feel utterly exhausted by the whole affair! And finally, there is the danger of overreaching, going beyond your present capabilities or losing all sense of proportion, carried away by your vision. All these are Jupitarian experiences: the frustration that there is more to life than this; the overwhelming expansion of your life-structures; the struggling to physically keep up with your vision… these are all part and parcel of Jupiter’s transit through your chart!
But no matter how you are feeling now, you will recognise Jupiter’s blessings in hindsight! Jupiter is the planet of the bird-s eye view after all – it will all become clear as you gain some distance from current events. So, if you feel anything but blessed at the moment, just bear with things. Trust the process and go with it. Lady Luck is knocking on your door!
