Jupiter is often referred to as the money planet, and following its path through the zodiac is a great way to gauge financial trends. Time your money choices with the cosmic flow to enjoy maximum abundance. Let’s see what 2013 has in store.
Jupiter is in Gemini until June 26. This is detrimental to Jupiter’s energy, creating limitations and lack around wealth until then. Gemini can inspire a lack of focus, so take care you’re not distracted with your finances. Gemini is one of three signs considered barren, so returns on investment are likely to be reduced though this period.
On the other hand, Gemini loves information and variety, so if you can create a unique money schedule that changes regularly (perhaps with a different theme each month), you’ll find it easier to meet your money goals.
On June 26, Jupiter enters Cancer, a Water sign, so this period will be more prosperous and fertile. The second half of the year has great wealth potential, as Jupiter is blessed with abundance and growth. Cancer is naturally conservative, so dealing with a debt or investing for the long term is likely to pay off from July onward.
Venus is also associated with money and wealth. In 2013, she moves through three fertile signs too, moderating Jupiter’s influence. From February 27 through March 22, and June 3 through 27, Venus is in fertile Water signs (Pisces and Cancer respectively), which helps balance some of the weaker money energy of Jupiter.
Between September 11 and October 7, Venus is Scorpio, which helps boost the financial potential of Jupiter in Cancer.
Jupiter’s aspects to other planets also influence the money flow in 2013. Here’s what to expect and when:
February 9–19, Jupiter/Uranus
The cosmic money vibe is chaotic and unpredictable, so keep your options open. A flexible attitude toward money is needed as unexpected twists and turns are likely. Surprises keep you guessing now, so this isn’t a great time to be making major money decisions. Curb impulsive choices where you can.
July 13–24, Jupiter/Neptune/Saturn/Mars
This rare grand trine in Water signs creates a compassionate wealth energy that helps you do what’s right for yourself and others. Safe choices are best. Security, especially regarding home and family, are deciding factors. Channel abundance into long-term investments.
August 4–11, Jupiter/Pluto
The transformative power of Pluto means it’s possible to make major changes to your finances now. Dig deep, as money baggage can be dealt with. This is a great time to pay off debt, or take on new responsibilities with finances.
With Jupiter sitting pretty in Cancer through the second half of the year it’s especially attuned to the Moon’s influence. The days when the Moon and Jupiter align in Cancer are especially fruitful regarding money and investments. These include:
September 1-2 and 28–29
