The Gift: Jupiter In Cancer And The Grand Water Trine

Picture by http://www.flickr.com/photos/alicepopkorn/2949731451/ June 21st is the Summer Solstice (the Sun moves into Cancer). It's a yearly thing, but this one will be exceptional.

Cancer is a Cardinal sign - emotional movement. Follow your instincts, lead with your gut. Feel your way forward. The emotional energy will be ripe, because this Solstice will feature the second of two Grand Water Trines (the first one occurred here). The Sun in Cancer will trine Saturn (in Scorpio) and Neptune (in Pisces) from June 21st to June 26th (when the trine is exact). Jupiter will enter Cancer on June 25th, trining Saturn and Neptune until July 17th. So here's a nice window of time to work with.

Jupiter (expansion and abundance) in emotional Cancer promises more nurturing and empathy, and more neediness. But its energy will be restrained by Saturn and elevated by Neptune. This is the ideal of caring/nurturing, without the baggage of expectations. Mothering, not smothering. Feelings, not tantrums. Neediness can be set aside (during the Trine) in favour of taking responsibility (Saturn) for what you want, and realizing that you can transcend (Neptune) your existing situation to get it. Yes, you can reach beyond the boundaries of your helplessness/fear/guilt/childhood/food issues and make some real progress. Jupiter moves forward. 

This Trine will bring you something. Anything involving Jupiter opens things up. The question is, what will you do with what you receive? Hint: it will involve freedom. If you have planets/angles between 0-5 degrees Cancer, Pisces or Scorpio, you're first in line to receive Jupiter's gifts.

Jupiter will be Cancer until July 16th, 2014. All three Water signs will reap the benefits, and I'll write more about this in my next post.
