Jupiter is in Cancer now. It’s high-functioning in the sign of it’s exaltation and I’m seeing the effects of this all around.
Jupiter is about opportunity and expansion. It’s considered a benefic planet and while I could argue about the rightness of this all day, today I want to talk about downside of this bastard!
Jupiter flings open doors. For example, I have a long time client who recently moved countries to live and work for a year. This has opened her up to all kinds of expansion.
I have an Indian client whose older brother is to be married in a traditional style. He has a role in this, and family responsibilities tied to his brother’s engagement. This has opened a door and exposed him to a new realm of experience.
I have also had doors flung open for me and guess what? I don’t like the new experience! How about that? Yes, my world is bigger. Yes I am learning new things but hey! I don’t like this school. I don’t like this education!
If I sound like a baby who does not want to advance, let me be clear – this could happen to you.
For example, how about you go to the doctor and get yourself a nice cancer diagnosis? What are you going to say? Yippie! Now I get to go into this world of chemotherapy! Now I get to learn all about the waiting rooms of doctors and how to make appointments for blood tests?
It’s expansion all right, but not a class you’d be likely to sign up for, if given a choice.
Guess what? I learned a lot when I was forced to go to court all the time for three years. I was expanded all right. But I was horrified, simultaneously and I just want to bitch about this today.
If you like your Jupiter transit, gratitude is in order. Personally, I would like to close some of the doors that have been opened for me. I struggle to acclimate to this new land.
This doesn’t mean that I won’t or that I can’t adapt. This doesn’t mean that I can’t see the big picture. It does mean that not all expansive experiences are pleasant!
One more example. How about those tourists that go on an exotic vacation and wind up kidnapped and held captive by terrorists? That’s a Jupiter experience as well, ya think?
With Jupiter in Cancer, chances are, a door as been flung open for you. Are you liking the expansion in your life? Am I the only one, not that keen on hurtling through space, as bombs fall? Just wondering…
