Too Easy?


Tomorrow Jupiter moves out of Taurus and into Gemini.

For those of us who are heavily influenced by the moods of Jupiter (take the test on Donna Cunningham’s site- links are here) this may be an opportunity to broaden the mind rather than the hips…yes, that did come out loud.

I have struggled with motivation and mojo over this last 12 months or so. It has seemed easy to wait and see what happens than go out and fight for it. That’s very Taurus for me.

Thinking about it, and after looking through all the other Jupiter posts (check out the Jupiter tab at the top of the page) my busiest years, most productive years, and best diet years have been when Jupiter has been transiting the 4th and 10th houses. Why? Because he has been squaring all (well virtually all) of my personal planets. I am challenged. It’s like the Universe has been to Bali and brought me back one of those t-shirts that says “Go to Bunnings, buy some cement and harden the fuck up!”

Jupiter is very well integrated in my natal chart. At 24 Cancer, in the 5th house, he trines my Ascendant, Sun, Moon and Neptune. Jupiter is easy on me. He trines (by sign) Mars and Mercury, and sextiles Uranus and Pluto.

The only challenging aspect is the relationship with Venus (an over-indulging square). With everything else so easy, the over-indulging also is easily justified.

So when Jupiter is in Gemini or Sagittarius he is actually forming tough aspects to each of these planets. It pushes me out of my comfort zone. And with a chart full of easy aspects, that is actually a very good thing.

Anyway, in a way it feels a little like the last splurge before the diet. And with the Moon in Pisces, that may be very well what you are feeling like doing.

I’ve been on a bit of a slow cooking adventure over the weekend following a visit to the local Farmers Market on Saturday morning. The weather here has been perfect for it with the rain bucketing down here in Sydney. If you want to check out one of the recipes, head on over to the and anyways page.
