On 25 June Jupiter leaves airy Gemini for Cancer and we are awash in water. So what will Jupiter in Cancer emphasize? Because Jupiter always emphasizes whatever he touches you know, or should I say exaggerates.
Cancer is all about home and family in one way or another. It is a sensitive water sign who feels deeply. Jupiter in Cancer may envelop us in loving warmth or make us feel smothered by too much mothering. All those uncomfortable food issues could show up once more as in substituting food for nurturance. Bulimia, anorexia and obesity are examples of this.
Folks may find themselves weeping over the slightest thing, even those of us who don’t cry much. Images of puppies, kittens and babies of all kinds can trigger the waterworks. Jupiter’s sentimental side will be on full display and perhaps bring a renewed sense of national pride in Cancer Sun nations such as the USA. The Fourth of July celebrations will probably be over the top this year in part because of Jupiter’s influence . . . mom, apple pie, etc.
Saturn in Scorpio will rein in Jupiter in Cancer during July but in August when Jupiter opposes Pluto and squares Uranus, all bets are off and emotions will run high. More turmoil may be coming over the winter months when Mars goes retrograde in Libra, periodically squaring Jupiter in Cancer. I will be sure to give all my Libra friends a “head’s up” well in advance.
Those of us with personal planets or Ascendant in the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) are going to notice Jupiter’s journey thru Cancer the most as it squares, conjoins or opposes those planets. Check your chart to see what house Cancer falls in too. I have the joy of Jupiter in Cancer transiting my eighth house . . . discussions with family members about who inherits what may occur. Gah!
