Jupiter Moves Into Cancer

Jupiter - the big windy gas bag of our Planetary system, ruler of everything gigantic and over-the-top, has just moved from the Sign of Gemini (where it's been since June of 2012) and into the Sign of Cancer (where it will be until July 2014). This year we're "blowing up" Cancerian concepts of security: home, food, mother, money.

All the Planets are created by HaShem as energetic lenses through which specific attributes are filtered. These attributes reflect the corresponding conditions upon Creation - specifically, humankind.

Jupiter is the largest Planet, is associated with the Sign of Sagittarius (and traditionally, before the "discovery" of Neptune, with Pisces). It's also associated with the Month of Kislev, the Tribe of Benyamin, the tikkun of sleep and dreams. 

In mythology Jupiter is Zeus, the king of the Olympians, godfather to the mythological mafia line up, if you will. Jupiter has the attribute of extremism - although it is usually experienced in a positive and even beneficent manner, it can be excessive.

Beginning this week, Jupiter is making a transit (passing through) the Sign of Cancer for about the next year. Wherever Jupiter transits, that area of life gets expanded. During Jupiter's transit of Gemini everything having to do with communication (Gemini's forte) was expanded. Think of Wikileaks and all the security breaches of the last year!

Cancer is concerned with security and advancement. Cancerians are ruled by the Moon, which makes them emotional, yet they are Cardinal Signs so they always take the initiative although they travel Crab-like, scuttling in switchbacks and never making a direct approach, but never backing down.

Cancer's key words are: Food, Home, Mother, Money. These are triggers for them emotionally and in terms of motivation. Jupiter's transit of Cancer will see these key words / emotional triggers expanded.

Globally "Mother Earth" may be the Mother to whom we need to pay attention. To each of us individually those things that say "mother" to us, i.e. our literal mothers or those who provide nurturing energy to us in whatever form - those relationships will be highlighted and emphasized.

We have to ask ourselves: What are we growing in our lives? What are we nurturing, what is nurturing us? How are we providing for our own heritage and legacy?     

So friends - Welcome to Jupiter in Cancer, let's keep our eyes open for those things within ourselves and each other that need watering and care!
