Jupiter Rx in Cancer

7 Nov

Today, Jupiter the planet of luck and expansion will retrograde in Cancer until early March 2014.  During this time we may have to turn inward and to test society’s  beliefs, including religious beliefs, philosophies, prejudices, morals and sense of right and wrong against our own when it comes to ideas of family, home, comfort, tradition, race, ethnicity, roots, nurturing, care taking, security, safety and even ‘homeland security’.  It’s a time of inner expansion where you can find out how you feel about those ideas. They’ll need to be measured and tested against your own and you’ll have to judge things for yourself and come to find your own truth. 

A few examples of the manifestation of this energy can be seen in the local news.  This week on the “Today Show” they are highlighting stories of adoption.  There was a segment on the NBC news last night about ‘unconditional parenting’.  There was also a story on the news about people taking issue with prayer at a town board meeting.  This was because the prayer was of one faith while leaving out another board members’ faith.  These are just a few minor examples and you may see how this is relevant in your personal life.

Water Grand Trine

19 Jul

While thinking about this Water Grand Trine between Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, the issue of race came to mind. It’s a hot topic lately here in the U.S. especially after the Trayvon Martin verdict. Cancer rules over things like race, lineage, our roots, etc.  The law, courts and legal decisions fall under the realm of Jupiter as well as our sense of right and wrong. The issue of race has also made the news recently with the Paula Dean scandal and also with a Cheerios commercial a few weeks back that featured a bi-racial family that ‘offended’ people.  It seems that we need to explore this taboo subject and break down the fears and barriers and realize that we are all connected. We are one race, the human race.  Sure there are differences among us that may be specific to particular groups but so what? That’s what adds a little flavor and variety to life. Why do minor differences divide us?  We should be able to acknowledge differences without out it causing hate. No one really wants to have an honest talk about it. Why is it black or white? Why does one group have to blame or play victim to the other? It seems that the Universe is conspiring to have us honestly acknowledge the subject of race and cultural lineage and differences along with some of our beliefs, assumptions and prejudices in this regard.  Mars will conjunct Jupiter and move into this Water Grand Trine on July 20th  possibly bringing all of this water energy to a boil with emotions and anger as people try to assert their own ideologies, opinions and beliefs.  There is also another Grand Trine between Mercury in Cancer, The North Node in Scorpio, and Chiron in Pisces.  This could indicate that healing could come by having these emotional conversations that are critical in order to birth a new path and destiny. We also still have the ongoing square between Uranus and Pluto causing social unrest and upheaval around the world until 2015. These planets met up in a conjunction in the late sixties.  During that time, here in America, there was a lot of racial tension and Martin Luther King Jr. was killed during that period.  It appears that this theme is upon us once again.  So what are we going to do about it?  Can we ever get beyond the issue of race?
