And what planet is that in the southern sky? I’m sleeping on the back porch to try and beat the heat. I awoke in the middle of the night to see this HUGE planet shining it’s light down on me. I mean HUGE. Without my glasses it was intense. I grabbed them wondering what the heck. Is it a plane? a UFO? A planet? That big??? I think it’s Jupiter.
Astrologically Jupiter is the planet of expansion. Thursday is Jupiter’s day. My first date with Jeff (yes, a nice simple uncomplicated name) is on a Thursday. My 3rd interview is on a Thursday. And Jupiter is smiling down upon me while I sleep under the moon and the stars, expanding my life, my potential, and all the things that have been getting ready to align very soon.
And suddenly, here I am crying. Good tears. Tears of Gratitude. Because good things are really coming. I can just feel my life expanding even now and very soon it’s going to burst open and my wings will unfurl and I’ll be flying. I can feel it. I just don’t know what day. 😉
Its symbol represents the crescent of receptivity waxing as a focus of material activity.
Astrologically Jupiter is known as the greater benefic as it has a warmer nature than Saturn but is not as hot as Mars and, with the addition of moisture, is fertile and thus beneficial to the Earth. It represents wisdom. It is a planet of freedom, tolerance and plenty.
From this planet all good things come and it is seen as avuncular, jolly, moderate and kind. As Jupiter takes 12 years to orbit the Sun, it spends one year in each Sign. Therefore, its influence in the horoscope is more inclined to the collective rather than personal.
My weekly Rob Brezsny horoscope:
It’s Freedom from Want Week! For Cancerians only! During this uncanny grace period, you might actually feel perfectly contented. It’s quite possible that you’ll be free from the obsession to acquire more security, more love, more proof of your greatness, more chotchkes, more everything. You may even make the shocking discovery that you don’t need nearly as much as you thought you did in order to be happy; that maybe you have a lot to learn about getting more out of what you already have.
I feel very excited. Very hot. Very content. I don’t need a bunch of things right now. Things are starting to work up to a nice simmer in a few areas of my life. I do want a job. I want a lover/partner/best friend. And I know that Jupiter is bringing it.
So Mote It Be
P.S. Off to buy some Burts Bees bug repellant so sleeping on the porch isn’t so difficult. That is one thing I do want. But it’s really a need.
