A helpful trine between Jupiter retrograde (Rx) in Cancer and Chiron (Wounded Healer)in Pisces has been building since January 24th. It will be exact on February 5th, suggesting hope (Jupiter) around sensitive/painful issues. The last time this trine occurred was August 21st, 2013 (when Jupiter was direct) so this current aspect may be connected to events back then. This time, Jupiter Rx suggests that reevaluating, pulling back or shifting perspective is the key to healing release, or opportunities emerging from "failure." The theme of pulling back continues as Mercury (communication and information) goes retrograde in Pisces (illusions and dreams) on February 6th. Information will shift and questions will be asked. This is a time to allow ideas to flow, rather than trying to nail down an answer. As always with Mercury Rx, watch for misunderstandings, overlooked information, delays or key people from the past.
Jupiter Rx in your domestic sector trines Chiron in your hidden sector, suggesting that reevaluations around a home business, family, relocation or renovation issue can net some comforting results. The reveal of a touchy secret or unacknowledged issue can be facilitated, and the outcome may bring significant relief. Old, family secrets, or issues that caused embarrassment, will be far less painful than you might imagine. Mercury Rx in your hidden sector continues this theme, as you look more closely at what's unclear or hidden. Overall, this week's energies point to what's private or buried in the past.
Jupiter Rx in your communication sector trines Chiron in your social sector. An apology or compassionate conversation (involving a friend, acquaintance or public announcement) has been building. This could be the week when those healing words are spoken, or you're made aware that certain, public issues require attention. You can use this energy to reach out to others. This aspect can also point to an emotionally enlightening second look at where you fit in with others; belonging versus isolation may be a theme. Mercury's reversal in your social sector can facilitate the above process as you reconsider/clarify certain friendships, group affiliations or big dreams. Alternatively, watch for the return of an old friend or contact.
Jupiter Rx in your security sector trines Chiron in your career sector. As you reevaluate financial growth or security needs, this aspect can ease certain adjustments (especially if financial or emotional needs aren't being met). Cutting back, consolidating or adjusting your expectations can ease disappointments over failed goals, or ease fears over career opportunities. As Mercury Rx (your ruler) shifts in your career sector, take a close look at opportunities, conversations, promises or public statements; not everything is straightforward. Watch for information to shift, and management to change their tune. Your best approach to all career matters (for this week) is to not be attached to outcomes; remain open to anything.
Jupiter Rx in your sign trines Chiron in your sector of opportunities, urging you to take a second look at what you thought was out of your reach. You've had to pull back in certain areas, but that readjustment might put you in line with a fresh opportunity (long distance travel, education, legal matters, publishing). Less is actually more in this case, even if these opportunities have brought disappointment in the past. As Mercury goes retrograde in your opportunities sector, watch for changes or misunderstandings regarding information in any of the above mentioned areas. Be especially cautious when signing legal documents, or making new travel plans after Mercury goes Rx. You may also decide to back out of an exploration, or shift your focus to something closer to home.
Jupiter Rx in your hidden sector trines Chiron in your sector of shared resources, suggesting a subtle shift regarding finances (debts, taxes, loans, your partner's finances) or intimacy. Difficulties in these areas can now be smoothed over as you reconsider/release a secret, or adjust hidden expectations. As Mercury goes Rx in your sector of shared resources, watch for financial information to shift, or ideas/choices about physical/emotional intimacy to change. You may have second thoughts about an investment, loan or you/your partner may pull back from exploring a deeper connection for now. Take all delays in stride; this is not the time to push past sensitive boundaries.
Jupiter Rx in your social sector trines Chiron in your relationship sector. Adjustments regarding friends, groups, public expansion or big, hopeful dreams can put you and your partner back on the same page. As you reconsider certain public opportunities, you'll find support or relief from someone close to you. Mercury Rx (your ruler) in your partnership sector suggests that discussions may shift, attitudes may change or you (or your partner) may backtrack on something that was introduced earlier. This can also be a time to double-check your romantic ideas, or look more closely at a new, romantic prospect. A past love interest may also re-emerge. Be wary of making commitments (if the relationship begins during this Rx period); all the details have not yet been revealed. Stay open, but be watchful.
Jupiter Rx in your career trines Chiron in your sector of routine, suggesting that a different approach to career expansion, ambition or new opportunities can help if you're feeling unappreciated, overlooked or overwhelmed by your work/daily duties. Pulling back can help you focus, and you may discover that higher-ups are noticing your contributions after all. This shift can also sooth stress related issues involving health or diet. As Mercury goes Rx in your sector of routine, watch for work duties to change, or new tasks to be (temporarily) taken away. Co-worker conversations can be full of misunderstandings and requests for clarification. Double check all instructions, documents, emails. On the positive side, you can uncover a new/promising solution or workaround (related to work or health).
Jupiter Rx in your opportunities sector trines Chiron in your sector of self-expression. Revisiting or reconsidering a development involving long-distance travel, education, legal matters or publishing can be the workaround to success or achievement. Doubts about your creativity, attractiveness or self-worth can be put to rest if you approach a new/distant opportunity differently, or even pull back to gain more perspective. Mercury Rx in your sector of self-expression can see you taking a second look at a new romance, creative project or personal goal. Something promising that recently appeared on your horizon may fade, but that doesn't mean it's gone for good. Allow opportunities/people to flow in and out of your life; it's all part of the process, and right now nothing is set in stone.
Jupiter Rx (your ruler) in your sector of shared resources trines Chiron in your domestic sector. Reevaluating shared finances (debts, taxes, loans, your partner's finances) can enhance the flow of domestic issues. Whether this means spending less or shifting financial responsibilities, a change can be beneficial for everyone in the family. Alternatively, intimacy can be enhanced by revisiting a sensitive issue; there's support available, and a change in perspective can be the key that opens the door to understanding. Mercury's Rx in your domestic sector can trigger a change in a recent decision regarding relocation or family issues. You may also find yourself revisiting domestic discussions in order to clarify (or reveal) hidden information.
Jupiter Rx in your relationship sector trines Chiron in your communication sector, urging you to open up, look back and forgive/forget a past relationship issue. Healing, compassionate conversations with a partner are available, and much can be sorted out. The key is your willingness to take a second look at issues concerning relationship philosophy, growth or freedom. Mercury Rx in your communication sector will see you (or others) backtracking or pushing for clarification. Recently developed ideas or information should not be considered final, just yet; now is not the time to push for an answer. However, this is an excellent influence for releasing old/negative ideas.
Jupiter Rx in your sector of work/routine trines Chiron in your sector of personal resources. Scaling back on work/duties or adjusting your exercise/health regime can be helpful. Doubts about money and security can be addressed if you back up and reconsider how much you can really handle. More work is not necessarily better, and it may be a case of cutting away the extra so you can focus on what you're best at. Mercury Rx in your security sector can signal changes in a financial offer/discussion, or a shift in your plans on how to get what you want. Options will come and go for now, so don't settle for the first offer that comes your way.
Jupiter Rx in your sector of self-expression trines Chiron in your sign, urging you to revisit a creative opportunity or change your perspective about a new romance or personal goal. Doubts, hurt feelings or vulnerabilities can be soothed if you reevaluate what you really want. Alternatively, the path to success may open in a slightly different direction than you first anticipated. Mercury Rx in your sign urges you to think twice and pay attention to hidden/missing information. Your ideas will be in flux, and that's to be expected. You don't have to give a final answer; consider your options.
