For the first time since the fateful 2001, on June 26th at 3:40 am, Barcelona’s time (CET), Jupiter enters the sign of its exaltation, Cancer.
On that occasion (2001), Jupiter opposed Pluto, as it will do on the 8th of August, but of course then, from the sign of Gemini, since Pluto was in Sagittarius. However, it was the opposition of Saturn (structures, the establishment, finance) in Gemini (the sign of the Twins) to Pluto (Lord of Darkness, He who inhabits the Underworld), in September 2001, which coincided with the attack to the Twin (Gemini) Towers (Saturn).
Jupiter, (the teacher, wisdom, compassion, the need for expansion and learning), in the sign of Cancer, (mother, our first teacher, unfortunately or fortunate our most important teacher). We can understand that this is his sign of exaltation, since Jupiter finds in Cancer’s need of nourishing, a masterful vehicle for its need of teaching. This is a concept that also relates quite strongly with foreign mothers, other lands, immigrants, emigrants, which connects us with a culture different from that where we were born. Cities, Nations, are also a Cancerian concept, and Jupiter in this sign, wants to elevate, expand and improve society.
Safety in the family, in our cities, in our schools and colleges, also the laws to protect it, are also themes of Jupiter in Cancer, and of course with the current world situation, with the events that occurred in Boston, London, Cleveland. In the streets of Buenos Aires, daily, the situation in Venezuela, Syria, etc., is possible to see an increase in the need to protect ourselves from others, with their sad and possibly paranoid consequences. So, we ask ourselves: and what about the great benefactor?. Yes, Jupiter is the great benefactor and in general brings us opportunities to expand and get what we want. But it is also true sometimes in the process of doing that, we experience de liberation and the benefits in the strangest way. Sometimes progress means saying goodbye to people and situations with whom we have shared an important part of our lives. Taking into account that during the summer, Jupiter in Cancer will activate the current Urano-Pluto square, there will be a lot of this saying good bye and the changes in search of expansion and progress will be many. People moving to other countries, to new homes. The home situation improves in a sense when the children leave, but the experience is painful for many. House, home improvements are also possible by the desire and need to expand our environment.
The cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, as also Pisces and Scorpio will mainly benefit from this transition. Jupiter enters Cancer forming a conjunction to the Sun, and a large Grand Trine to Neptune and Saturn. It would be hard to imagine a better influence and omen for this passage of Jupiter through the first Water sign. It is important to remember that none of us alive today, have experienced this kind of energy from the Cosmos, since Neptune was never in PISCES in our lives, other than now. The large Trine will be exact between the 17 and 18 of July, a wonderful opportunity to meditate and listen to the voices of our ancestors in the depth of our psyche, to connect with that ancient wisdom that will help us see clearly the path to follow. Jupiter will contact the Urano-Pluto square once more in January and February 2014 and in April, 2014 for the fifth exact encounter between these two planets. If all this sounds, the global crisis has a long way to go, it is exactly what it means.
Even so, we should focus on listening and connecting with the wise powers of this Grand Trine in the Water sings between Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune so we can connect with the Cosmos and finally, arrive to the conclusion that everything is inter-connected and that God, although in many facets, is ONE. This is the great opportunity that we were hoping for, to unify our beliefs and let go of the misunderstanding of religious teachings that only lead us to kill each other. The energy of the Universe, or what we call God, is an energy of LOVE. If what we’re hearing, drives us to separate ourselves, to the “eye for an eye…”, then we need to improve our hearing. We must free ourselves from doctrines that divide us and kill our children. We have to say “That’s enough!!!!”
If you are 12 or 24 or 36 or 48 or 60 or 72 or 84 years, you will be passing a return of Jupiter, which always means a new impetus on known issues and a new opportunity to connect with your talents and how to express them.
I think that by writing about it, I’m already feeling the energies of Jupiter in Cancer. Let’s protect our children from hatred, teaching them TOLERANCE. Much depends on Cancer and much depends on that first teacher we call Mother.
