In Western Astrology, Jupiter enters Cancer at 6:04 pm PDT, 9:04 pm EDT on June 25, 2:04 am Greenwich June 26, where it will stay for about a year. It’s a new adventure for us all!
That means Jupiter, the expansive principle of inner and outer space, is now expressing through the filter of a sign associated with feelings, protection, nurture, home, family, and establishing a base of operations and line of secure supply. It is the sign of active feelings and up close and personal experiences. We can assume this means an explosion of new feelings and major realignments will come forth over the next year that will create a huge release of energy after it enters Leo on July 16-17. 2014.
Today I don’t have time to compose a thorough article on Jupiter in Cancer, but will soon. Just remember that now it’s entered the Grand Water Trine with Saturn and Neptune that’s been triggered up to now by Mercury, Venus, and the Sun. As Jupiter and Neptune both rule Sagittarius and Pisces, the former in this world and Neptune in the transcendent world, it puts the focus on a harmonious understanding and relationships between these two principles in our inner world of Being and outer world of Doing
So we’re entering a brief period of harmony and stabilization between Jupiter and Neptune with more harmony and stability via the trines to Saturn. This will establish a flow that we’ve explored up to now into major motion, as if we now move from the river to the sea. While there will be very important “karmic adjustments,” these have to happen so that nothing can obstruct our entry into a new social feeling-experience.
This will give momentum to some collective ideals already set into motion in early and late June via the other Grand Water Trines. And as per what I recently wrote about the Grand Water Trines being followed by the “plunges” and integrative challenges of the Cardinal T-squares, Jupiter will make its Cardinal T-square once it gets close enough to oppose Pluto and square Uranus between the second week of July and the end of August.
This is flow followed by release, understanding followed by a powerfully focused need to balance or recalibrate something. The Jupiter square Uranus opposition Pluto shows the emergence of a new standard of fairness or balanced perspective in collective consciousness. A new collective ideal is taking shape, but it’s also extremely hard-edged and requires tremendous focus, clarity, and knowing when we’re in the presence of coercion, dishonesty, opportunities that are not safe, and erratic situations that could quickly get out of hand.
Obviously anyone with planets or sensitive points in the early degrees of Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, or Pisces will find themselves on the edge of discovery, the beginnings of a new adventure in life and/or consciousness, or flowing more quickly in the direction already set in the weeks before this event. This represents a major point of deciding, reorienting, establishing a new life direction, seeing a new need, or moving into a closer set of caring relationships. Just learn to navigate the Jupiter opposition Pluto and then square to Uranus with balance, grace, idealism, and a sense of moderation and perspective.
For today, open to a new era, new feelings, new dedication, new ways of capturing what you need to secure your base of operations or your family necessities, both material and nonmaterial. The fellowships formed during the past year, the new perspectives and new understanding of our place in life and how our ideas fit into larger pictures, now will have “feeling-substance” that will show us which way our lives are flowing, whether easy or challenging.
So go with the flow, even if it occasionally leads to rough waters. Stay balanced and keep a sense of perspective. Jupiter will be trining Saturn off and on for the next year, bringing understanding and stability between the Cancer and Scorpio areas of our charts.
Through early September, learn how to stay on course, get focused and put your will power into play, avoid dishonest or corrosive people and opportunities that are dangerous or marginal, and be willing to be open and above board in asking for what you want. Learn well, since these themes are front and center again between January and May 2014. There will definitely be global developments as a result of Jupiter opposing Pluto and squaring Uranus, so take note and prepare however you need to deal with these larger frictional situations.
This is truly a turning point, and the flow is leading us to greater vision, greater experience, greater connectedness, and a more abundant and secure life. We have gone through the dilemmas, conflicts, disagreeing positions, and discoveries of Jupiter in Gemini, and now we understand how to navigate the fogs and confusions to get to the other shore. A greater emotional understanding, intelligence, and spiritual concerns are promised by Jupiter in Cancer.
