Welcome to “Starcast” – an amazing look into what the Cosmos has in store for the 12 sun-signs. There’s no doubt about it. Our solar system is magnificent and unrelenting in its forward motion – truly one of the most compelling entities in the entire Universe. To this point, let’s focus on the anticipated arrival of the planet, Jupiter (signifying abundance, luxury, ease, and good fortune; namely, Lady Luck), in the glamorous sun-sign of Cancer, the Crab, last June 25, 2013 at 9:42 p.m. (ET). And here, its sumptuous sojourn will continue until Wednesday, July 16, 2014 – when it leaves and enters the center-stage sun-sign of Leo, the Lion (absolutely, a “Starcast” for another time).
This isn’t trivial. This is your Life – every second of it. Because whichever one of the 12 sun-signs you are, this powerful and ongoing planetary activity affects you directly, since the strong and resourceful Cancer governs one of the twelve houses within your birth chart (also known as the zodiac wheel). And the remarkable journey of the planet, Jupiter (forever, Lady Luck), through Cancer will include the emergence of “good fortune and delight developments” that only you will know what to do with. With Jupiter in Cancer, the Crab, there’s the promise of protection, direct action, and an unwavering desire to advance all manner of mental, emotional, and material goals. High drama dominates – plus! the reality that Cancer (the human being), ruled by the Moon (the subconscious mind), remembers simply everything.
Visualize a numerical (1 through 12) clock or wristwatch. That’s the zodiac wheel; that’s your birth chart, too. And each pie-shaped wedge (5 to 4 o’clock, for example) is a house, an area of activity (love, money – in every currency imaginable – work, and so on) in your everyday world, one of which Cancer, the Crab, governs in your birth chart. So, this stunning activity (Jupiter in Cancer) will prevail and influence you – no matter who you are or where you are.
Here’s how the planet, Jupiter (Lady Luck), going through Cancer, the Crab, affects the 12 sun-signs within the 12 houses of the zodiac wheel.
