Expansive Jupiter in Gemini hits Chiron (the Wounded Healer) in Pisces with a doubtful square from January 13th to 15th. Chiron represents wounds, insecurities and weaknesses. Jupiter's contact to Chiron suggests overcompensation or unrealistic expectations as a reaction to pain. Going too far to make yourself feel better is the risk under this influence. If you're tempted to say more/do more, use that moment to examine why. Wisdom and healing are available, but you'll need to cut out the distractions (Gemini) and focus on what's really bothering you. On January 19th, Mercury and the Sun move into Aquarius (for some time zones, Mercury moves into Aquarius on the evening of January 18th). This energy is detached, open and accepting of almost anything. Communication (Mercury) and purpose (the Sun) become freer, because so much more is possible. Aquarius is the rebel sign, but it's also the sign of the humanitarian.
Jupiter in your sector of thoughts and communication has been bringing you tons of ideas/information. But this week, your reaction to that fabulous idea, juicy piece of information or hoped-for conversation may surprise you and everyone else. Chiron in your sector of secrets will be triggered, stirring up weaknesses or unacknowledged pain. Before you give your answer, consider what you're actually saying. Watch for an increase in socialization as Mercury and the Sun move into your sector of friends and groups. This is the time to get noticed, make connections and reach out to a wider audience.
Jupiter in your security sector squares Chiron in your sector of friends and groups, pushing you to overspend/overcompensate/overindulge, all in the hope of making you feel better. If a sore spot regarding your reputation or friendship(s) is triggered, watch what you throw at it to make it go away. Try addressing the problem (as uncomfortable as that may feel) rather than burying your head in the sand. As Mercury and the Sun move into your career sector, the spotlight moves to your future goals, ambitions and career responsibilities. The time is ripe to send out your resume, apply for a new position or consider a new path.
Jupiter in your sign hits Chiron (in your career sector) with a doubtful square. Watch for confidence wobbles related to career goals/ambitions/capabilities. You may overreact/over-promise as a way of dealing with your perceived inadequacies. Alternatively, your bright ideas may rub someone in authority the wrong way. Step back and avoid adding fuel to the fire; under this influence, it's better to listen first and speak very cautiously when offering your input. The Sun and Mercury move into your sector of opportunities. Watch for new developments/potential in any of these areas: long distance travel, education, publishing, legal matters. Now is the time to reach further and try something new.
Jupiter in your sector of secrets squares Chiron in your sector of opportunities; what's new/different/long distance may feel out of your league. Think carefully before you speak/send that email, because your reaction will be coming from a subconscious place. In this case, your first response is probably not the best one. You may be misinterpreting, projecting or chasing after something/someone that was never meant to be. The Sun and Mercury enter your sector of shared resources, putting the focus on debts, loans, taxes or your partner's finances. You can make some headway with a new financial plan or loan strategy. Alternatively, intimacy issues may become important; open, uninhibited discussions are your best bet. In all scenarios, recognize that the outcome partially depends on someone else.
Jupiter in your sector of friends and groups pushes against Chiron in your sector of shared resources. External developments will impact your internal/intimate affairs, and you may react defensively or instinctively. Before you curl up, overreact, or misinterpret, know that what is written/said is probably not meant the way you are perceiving it. Chiron is sitting in the most intimate area of your chart; it's like an exposed nerve, and you'll be tempted to go to extremes. Try giving others the benefit of the doubt, or get more information on the matter, instead. Mercury and the Sun enter your relationship sector, bringing energy to your partnerships and opening doors for discussions, activities and change.
Jupiter in your career sector has gifted you with opportunities, change or success. But the square to Chiron in your partnership sector could make things sticky as career developments clash with relationship issues. Public status and private relationships, or your success versus relationship guilt can all be sore spots. Avoid projecting your career doubts onto your partner; you're pursuing success for yourself, not to make someone else happy. Alternatively, make sure you're not using a relationship issue to put off positive career changes. Mercury and the Sun move into your sector of work, health and duties, keeping you busy. You excel at multi-tasking, so you should be able to handle any unexpected extras. However, this can be a nerve wracking influence, so carve out some private time to keep yourself grounded.
Jupiter in your sector of opportunities has brought you so many new things. But the square to Chiron in your sector of work, health and duties could make you feel overwhelmed, or have you exceeding your reach. New, long distance developments (or opportunities in education, legal matters or publishing) are viable, but during this influence double check that all the details are covered. It will be easy to overlook some essential, practical aspects. Alternatively, if it just doesn't fit into your daily life, it might be better to let this one go. There's something else just around the corner. The Sun and Mercury enter your sector of success, creativity and celebrations. Enjoy the surge of confidence, flirtatious attention and sociability. Now is the time to get out and mingle; you never know who's watching.
Jupiter in your sector of shared resources squares Chiron in your sector of romance, success and creativity. Before you let someone get close, or spend/invest your money, make sure you're doing it for the right reasons. Your needs may be driven by fear of losing control/losing someone or feeling less than special. Know that your worth is not determined by how much you give to someone else. And giving more will not keep someone by your side. Alternatively, issues with children/conceiving can be troublesome as certain hopes are not met. Mercury and the Sun move into your sector of home and family, drawing your attention to home renovations, relocations and family issues. Family/real estate discussions may be the focus now.
Jupiter in your partnership sector squares Chiron in your sector of home and family. There is a risk that relationship decisions will be driven by wounds/insecurities based in the past. Make sure that your choices are based on what's happening right now. Sliding back into old habits/patterns/addictions (especially those based on family history) will be tempting, but will not move your relationship forward. Your partner is not your parent. The Sun and Mercury fire up your communication sector, bringing you incoming information, while speeding up your reactions. Now is the time if you have something important to say; your words will be in the spotlight. Things will not be quiet during this influence, so be prepared. Alternatively, issues/announcements with siblings may take precedence.
Jupiter in your sector of work, health and routine has you humming along smoothly, but the square to Chiron from your communications sector could throw a temporary wrench in the works. Routines may be disrupted by upsetting news, or work relationships may be thrown off kilter by hurtful gossip. If you've taken on too much responsibility or have been ignoring a health issue, you'll be forced to slow down. The more you overextend yourself on a daily level, the more difficult this influence will be. Rather than saying/doing more as a reaction to what you hear, try backing off and doing less. Focus only on the essentials. The Sun and Mercury in your security sector will have you thinking about finances and personal needs. Financial discussions/documents may be on the agenda.
Jupiter in your sector of creativity and success squares Chiron in your sector of security, increasing the risk that you may push for more than is realistic. Chiron has been making you feel insecure (financially or emotionally) and this aspect can see you chasing after a a new romance or personal goal that's not meant for you. Alternatively, you could end up saying something (to get attention) that comes back to undermine you. Be cautious when seeking attention/success during this influence; if you're trying to compensate for insecurities, it will only make you feel worse. Speaking of attention grabbing, the Sun and Mercury enter your sign, adding to the energy already being stirred up by Mars. You've got power in your corner, so there's no reason to overcompensate. Aim for clarity and detachment when pursuing your goals.
Jupiter in your sector of home and family squares Chiron in your sign, suggesting that domestic developments may rub you the wrong way. Family discussions/additions, issues with relocating, rental agreements, mortgages or home businesses could all be troublesome if you hope for/push for too much. Keep your expectations in check and don't offer more of your time than you're able to give. Alternatively, if a family member's positive developments make you feel undermined, consider what it is that you're lacking. The Sun and Mercury move into your sector of secrets, firing up hidden potentials and private plans. Things are brewing that need to be explored further, but they're not ready to see the light of day just yet.
