While the largest planet in our solar system definately influences everyone, some may feel it more strongly. Those with a Sagittarius sun, moon, or rising sign may feel the largest pull. Yet individuals with a rising or sun sign of Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio will also be experiencing this energy. In addition if your Natal Jupiter falls in the 9th house or in it’s home sign of Sagittarius (or the current and exalted sign of Cancer) you may feel this influence the most. Make sure to check your transit chart for Jupiter’s position and influence in your own life.

Try looking at pictures, playing board games, or making a meal with someone you love. Join a family tree building website and explore your roots. Talk to your family more frequently, invite friends over for a lavish dinner, and appreciate your partner(s) more during this emotionally confusing time. Backrubs are always awesome.
Someone with a strong Jupiter in cancer, or in the 4th house, may lean towards a meatless diet. Thus, this influence may increase collective sympathy to the plight of the voiceless. So, you may find yourself being more of a vegetarian, without much effort. An appropriate diet may bring you back into balance at this time. With Jupiter in Cancer compassion comes first. If you want to express true kindness and love, it must resonate deep within. If we begin with our core energy, our diet, often it’s much easier to achieve. For this reason many cultures and belief systems practice vegetarianism.
