Jupiter is gearing up to enter a new sign, water sign Cancer, on June 25th, 2013 at 9:40PM ET. He'll remain in Cancer until July 16th, 2014 at 6:30AM ET when he enters fire sign Leo. Jupiter is exalted in Cancer, so he's quite comfortable here. The last time Jupiter was in Cancer was in 2001-2002.
Cancer rules the home, so Jupiter in Cancer should be good for real estate, which is something we really could use right now. We should begin to see an uptick in positives for the housing sector. This could also be a great time to invest in real estate (though that's probably been true for a while, but we may see more people making money through real estate). Hopefully, we can get this mess under control and make things right. Saturn is currently going through fellow water sign Scorpio, so the two should be working together in harmony. With Saturn in Scorpio, we have to improve our financial situations, so with Jupiter in Cancer, we could really see the impact of that in real estate.
Cancer also rules the broader home, meaning our countries, so we may focus more on our own countries and try to fix problems at home before going out and fixing other people's problems. Domestic issues become more important, and we demand more attention be paid to us by our own governments. We can feel more patriotic, and like our whole country is our family.
The family is governed by Cancer, and we can try to rectify some of the breaking down of the family structure that's taken place, and see more and more people trying to create families of their own through marriage, children, joining groups, or getting involved in civic organizations. Society wants to feel like a family, and we work at being more supportive of one another, nurturing each other, and encouraging others.
Now, all of this positive stuff probably won't be felt right off the bat because Mercury will be turning retrograde in Cancer the day after Jupiter enters Cancer - joy! Things will probably be thrown off for a little bit until that retrograde is over at the end of July. At that point, Mars will also be in Cancer, and and we'll be coming off of a grand trine, where you have planets in the same positions in all three signs of an element. Jupiter in Cancer will trine Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces during the second half of July. That should be a very nice time!
In August, there could be an issue with Jupiter involved in a t-square, opposite Pluto in Capricorn with both square Uranus in Aries. This t-square is in cardinal signs, making it about action, and as the planet that is square, Uranus is the focal point, which is unexpected, sudden, rebellious, independent, eccentric, unpredictable. Libra is the missing sign, called the empty leg, and is the way we can make this work out well and fix it. We have to compromise, work with one another, be respectful and fair, let justice run its course, embrace equality, and always be courteous.
