We may be in an expansive mood today, and taking risks that looked too big not that long ago could bring us encouraging results. At 8:43 am EDT, big-dreaming Jupiter returns to the quirky and social sign of Aquarius, fueling an atmosphere of innovation and connection from now until late December. Meanwhile, the emotional Moon makes harmonious trines with both intellectual Mercury and the active Sun today. While we might be going places, the pace of action is merciful enough that we can digest it.
You may be equipped to optimize your enjoyment of your social life at this time. Though Jupiter can give you fresh opportunities to connect with others, what you bring to the connection matters too. Instead of just going with the flow, take the risk of letting your friends in on what really makes you happy. Today you may be better able than usual to explain what brings you pleasure. You might get more of what you want if you ask for it, so go for it!
Something as simple as cleaning up around the house could get surprisingly intense at this time, as you might find yourself wandering off into deep thoughts about your background. As you set up your current home or family life to meet your needs, you may be reminded of situations in the past where you did not get what you needed. Starting today, Jupiter is compelling you to revisit your authority issues. If you are able to be the authority now, that may help you heal some old wounds.
You can have everything you want except quiet today, as Jupiter begins boosting your capacity for big ideas and exploration. Fortunately, you may have plenty of people around you to share your current brainstorms with, and your friends and even acquaintances might be in the mood for hearing something unique. A great idea can take on a life of its own beyond its creator, so be open to the possibility that feedback from your listeners could help improve and refine your plans.
A look at your finances may get you wondering how you can increase them. Your mind might first go to the obvious sources of money, like your career, and maybe adjustments in your favor could be made there. With Jupiter now supporting matters of shared resources for you, though, there may also be other income streams you haven’t thought about in a while that are worth looking into. Any financial arrangement that you have allowed to go on autopilot is a candidate for review.
Relationships may be important to you at this time, but you might enjoy them more if you make an effort to assert yourself. While it is common for people to learn from each other, a dynamic where someone else is continually lording their expertise over you could get tiresome. Sometimes people who do that are motivated to dominate conversations by their fear of silence, so you might help balance the equation if you intentionally open up about your own thoughtful and adventurous side.
You may be considering an unconventional arrangement for sharing resources with others. It could work, but push yourself to be realistic about the details. As a Virgo, you might be more responsible and hardworking than others to begin with, and starting today, Jupiter is fueling your idealization of duty even further. While it is fine for your collaboration to include sweat equity, be cautious of the risk of burnout. Instead of figuring everything out in your own head, actively solicit input from the others involved.
Fun might be easy to come by today, as your social life could be broadly active. Even better, you may be able to spin the merriment in a way that lets you build emotional connections with people as individuals. If there is someone in your larger posse whom you have always wanted to get to know better, this could be the day to go for it. Your lighthearted and casual approach may lower the inhibitions that prevented this from happening sooner.
Developing a big idea for your career is hard, but today, you might get a handle on the hardest part: seeing how to get there from where you are now. Being attuned to the details of your daily responsibilities can help you figure out how to shift them into a trajectory that goes somewhere. You have to accept where you are before you can change it, but even a really basic foundation of security may help you feel safe enough to expand from there.
You may be catching up on your backlog of reading or exploring, and a realization might be coming into view: there is a difference between the brain food that is currently trendy and that which you personally enjoy. While there can be value in having a basic idea of what your peers are into, don’t force yourself to stick with something that's just not your style. Jupiter is helping your communication skills starting today, so telling people what you do like could go well for you.
When you think about resources that are shared in a family context, it may not only be about dollars and cents. Shifting your mindset to be more encompassing could help you finesse a situation in a way that honors the emotional needs of everyone involved. The idea of scarcity always makes things worse, no matter what the numbers actually are. An attitude of abundance -- that there will ultimately be enough to go around -- can help bring about a kind and productive solution.
Your close relationships may be full of activity now, but you might want more than chatter for its own sake. With Jupiter back in your sign starting today, you can become a more powerful presence than usual, so you will probably succeed in requesting a deeper heart-to-heart if you think that needs to happen. You might also be equipped to really access the roots of your emotional dynamics without being heavy-handed. Though the ball is in your court, this conversation could help the other person, too.
You may feel secure that your regular work is earning you enough money to meet your needs. However, starting today, fortunate Jupiter is increasing the possibility that you might get secret or unexpected help, so you might have more than just your own effort on your side. Sometimes the seeming unfairness of life actually goes in your favor, but keep up your rhythm of attending to your responsibilities anyway. While luck is capricious, you have control over what you contribute.
