For the week of August 2nd thru the 9th, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
The grand planet Jupiter is slowing down for its direct station on the 11th, and as it does so Aries is being asked to be willing to look at the world in a more expansive and encompassing way. Jupiter aims for us to grow and expand our world view. And this is a time for maturing and becoming wiser, but also a time to share your wisdom and understanding with others. Both learning and teaching offer the opportunity to broaden your knowledge as well as your understanding. The main thrust of this station is that in some way your consciousness will grow to the extent that there will no longer be room for any retrogressive or limiting beliefs. And part of this is due to your exposure to a broader expanse of ideas and perspectives. Your world is daring to get that much larger. And as a result, in your eyes it will never be quite the same again.
What is your own personal quotient for happiness? And what might you want or need to change in order to achieve that? For the next few weeks that Venus is admitted to the Solar throne room we should be much more aware of what is or is not working in our lives, and what truly makes our hearts sing. Just even taking notice helps to contribute to that over all picture that is gradually unfolding. As Jupiter stations direct on the 11th, a promised change could finally occur that will ultimately bring either a better opportunity, or greater freedom. Jupiter’s bounty can be material, as in a gift, a bequeathment, a generous loan; but it can also be more subtle and profound than that. Material rewards are helpful in making a new start. But gaining insight, healing and understanding into the true meaning of your life is priceless.
Now that Mercury is going to pick up speed and emerge as a morning star once again, you will begin to emerge from your own cocoon as well. It is well nigh time for Gemini to shine. Before long you will be able to take center stage once again. But in the mean time it might be useful to renegotiate a plan that had previously been placed on the back burner. You might want to look at it again. Now that Jupiter is going to be moving forward, mutually beneficial partnerships can be established or improved. Issues will some how get resolved, and mutual respect for each other’s vision brings a greater capacity to grow together. Or apart if need be. The key here is that whatever is necessary for partnerships and relationships to improve will now unfold, even if that means happily going your separate ways. It’s time to grow just a little bit larger.
Cancer has a special relationship with the planet Jupiter, as Jupiter is said to be exalted in your sign. So all the more important to pay attention to the upcoming station direct of Jupiter on August 11th. Jupiter aims to expand and grow opportunities and make your life that much easier going forward. One thing that can happen is that work can become more fulfilling. Or changes at work could free you up for a better opportunity or promotion. If not work itself, it just may be that your everyday routine becomes that much more fulfilling. It may simply be that your schedule is freed up enough in some way, allowing you to do things that you would much rather be doing; or to pay attention to regimens that will ultimately improve your health and well being. All in all, it’s about improving your daily life and lifestyle.
Pay attention to what your heart is telling you this week. Significant friendships and alliances can be established, but more importantly is remembering what it feels like to have joy and hope for the future. Allow the hearth fires to kindle in your heart. There is a burning ember there that is asking to be stoked just enough, so that you can see the big picture that is trying to unfold just ahead. As Jupiter prepares this week for its direct station, it can bring Leo luck, good will and perhaps even an excuse for a welcome celebration. The very definition of Jupiter stationing direct on the 11th is one of optimistic enthusiasm, both for yourself, and those you love. Let your heart swell with pride, and share that good will with others. It can only dare to keep growing if you do.
Now that Mercury is direct again, you may finally be able to put the pieces of your life together. Along with regaining control over your daily routines and schedule, you may also find that anxiety and worries will also subside. This will make it easier to look at the larger picture that is trying to unfold, now that Jupiter is also stationing direct on the 11th. You will notice that as the internal terrain of your life improves, so will the outward conditions of your life. Including your core community, and the very foundations of your life. Some of the things to consider with the stations of Mercury and Jupiter: how can you create greater security and stability in your personal life and environment? And what might bring you a stronger sense of belonging and community? Pay attention, for when you take care of these, all else will soon fall in place.
Callou callay oh fabjous day, so chortled the Jabberwocky. And so may you, now that Venus is lounging in the throne room of the Sun, and Jupiter is stationing direct. This is a recipe for joyous enthusiasm and perhaps even a reason for celebration. One thing that can become apparent as you move into the weekend, is how other people’s differences contribute rather than detract from the equation. This can even lay the groundwork for the general good will and happiness that is being promised for the days that follow. Although somewhat laid back… this is a prime time to recharge your batteries. And if you must recharge them, fill the tanks with loving kindness, generosity and joy. Connecting with others will not only bring opportunities for future endeavors, but can also bring opportunities to expand your mind and perspective. Hopes and expectations for the future can now move forward as plans seem to be coming together.
Rather than focusing on what you don’t have in common, celebrate each other’s differences this weekend. This is what contributes to, rather than detracts, from the larger picture which is unfolding ahead. What you do not want to do is to impulsively take unwise risks that are here today and gone tomorrow. However, once we get past the weekend, anything that you truly value, anything that you would want to spend your precious time, money and resources on, will have a greater opportunity to grow. This is because Jupiter will be stationing direct next week. You might even feel the potential blossoming. Even before the station on the 11th. Sometimes all that is needed is recognizing the value and quality of what you have to offer.
Something wondrous this way comes, now that your ruling planet, Jupiter, is poised to station Direct. It is at this time that the promise of opportunity and growth from earlier in the year will soon be ready to be fulfilled. You can almost feel the excitement growing, one step at a time, as all the elements are coming together. Jupiter represents our big vision and hope for the future, and as Jupiter shifts direct again we are met with this feeling of anticipation and optimism. Plans that had been put on hold are now allowed to proceed. But even more than that, because Jupiter is in your own sign, you are also be asked to grow in some very relevant way that will expand your horizons, and grow beyond your previous expectations of yourself. Your world is daring to get that much larger.
Jupiter traveling in Sagittarius has this remarkable capacity to restore a sense of self and well being. All the more so now that Jupiter is poised to station direct on August 11th. Jupiter can heal merely by making this momentous shift. You don’t have to do very much but allow yourself to be open to it. What can arise at this time, is a feeling of connectedness, of wholeness, acceptance, forgiveness and peace. And if you can find that still center, then a lot can be learned from listening and paying attention to information that surfaces from the past, or from hidden corners of your mind. Because of this inner growing and interconnectedness you will also find a deeper social conscience emerging, which also yearns to connect with others. And so as your inner world grows, so will your outer world as well.
Although it may feel as if you are in new territory and just trying to get your bearings, don’t shy away from exploring your new terrain. Sun and Venus in Leo can bring new ties, and make new friends. All the more so with Jupiter about to station direct on the 11th. There is an opportunity here to fulfill a promise to expand your network of friends and associates now that Jupiter will be direct again. And you can already sense that this will be the case. Take advantage of any connections made as they are more likely to broaden your world, as well as your opportunities in some wonderful way. A lucky break, or an opportunity could come through a friend, or an organization that you are associated with leading to greater attention or recognition. This goes both ways. And any help or support you show others at this time will be greatly rewarded in the future.
Get ready to expand your plans for the future. Jupiter, your ruling planet, is poised to station direct on the 11th, but we will already be anticipating this shift with bated breath. Just before Jupiter stations we get this feeling of anticipation for bigger and better things to start moving. With this in mind this is actually a good time to start thinking about either promoting yourself, or something that you do. Jupiter aims to expand our vision for the future and dares us to think larger. The truth is, now that Jupiter will be direct again, whatever positive efforts you put in, will more likely to be rewarded with some sort of advancement. It just seems that the sense of confidence that Jupiter brings also serves to just magnetically attract good fortune to you. Your world is daring to get that much larger.
