How Jupiter affects You
How Jupiter's Transit affects Capricorn, the Sea-Goat
At midnight on the eve of Friday 13th in July 2001, Jupiter changes sign from Gemini, the sign of his detriment where he is weak, to Cancer, the sign of his exaltation where he is strong, signalling a major new focus for everyone's lives.
This is not a period to work or spend a lot of time alone and out of touch, Capricorn, with sociable Jupiter moving through your seventh house. People, especially a partner or other allies, are a source of stimulation, broader knowledge and new experiences for you over the next twelve months.
Since it is through other people that you are most likely to succeed, there are benefits to be gained from increased interactions. The status of and circumstances surrounding a current partnership, other alliances and joint ventures are likely to be greatly enhanced. The outlook is just as prosperous for new unions established under this influence.
The successful energies of this period also extend to consultations, legal matters and contract negotiations. The assistance or cooperation of others for any reason may be more readily achieved. This said, you should control a tendency to take others, especially a partner, for granted. Do not exaggerate the prospects or status of a relationship or joint venture, nor should you overestimate the assistance or cooperation you may receive.
Jupiter, one of the most potent forces in our solar system, has been in Gemini for the best part of a year, creating all manner of issues connected mainly with finances, cultural pursuits, matters of the mind, communications, the law, politics, travel and interpersonal relationships. His transit into fulsome Cancer marks the beginning of a new twelve-year cycle.
Jupiter rules our potential for growth and expansion on many levels; physical, intellectual, spiritual and cultural, along with the accumulation of material assets, power and status. He rules our optimism and aspirations.
Lordly Jupiter, traditionally described as the greater fortune (or benefic), governs luck and wellbeing. When Jupiter is well-aspected he provides superb opportunities for expansion and success. Poorly aspected, he generates over-confidence and foolhardy actions with little care for the consequences.
Jupiter spends about a year in each sign, taking twelve years to complete his journey through all twelve signs. Remember to check the forecast for your rising sign too, for a more balanced reading. To calculate your rising sign, click here.
