The extended cycle of Jupiter in Cancer (June 2013 through July 2014) highlights family dynamics. As different planets trigger lucky Jupiter, you get the chance to experience -- and reset -- your family patterns.
This week, Venus squares Jupiter, highlighting what's joyful (and what's not) about your family relationships. This generous, loving energy encourages going out of your way to care for loved ones. It also highlights those relatives who take more than they give. A fresh perspective on family love is possible as you choose to give to those who appreciate your efforts, and to step back from those who don't.
Giving is joyful when those being showered with love or support appreciate the effort. If joy is scarce in your family right now, consider how you could change your actions to change the patterns. Give less to some relatives -- they may need time and space. Give more to others, those who crave connection and togetherness. Part of nourishing family means deciphering when to give and when to step back.
Venus wants to bond, while Jupiter is firmly focussed on family. Family can mean blood relatives or those beautiful souls with whom you share a kindred spirit. Quality time with those in your inner circle, or your family, feeds your soul this week.
This week's Venus-Jupiter link can bring peace to tense family dynamics. Creating a truce might take effort and mutual compromise, but if everyone is focussed on what's best for the collective, harmony is possible.
There's joy and happiness in the skies now. Home and family life receives abundant cosmic blessings. This is your chance to beautify your home and sweeten your family ties.
