Stay Positive with a Little Help From the Cosmos

Stay Positive with a Little Help From the Cosmos
In astrology, Jupiter is known as the happy optimist, believing things will get better just around the next corner. Even when disaster strikes, Jupiter always looks to see where the silver lining is. A crisis can be a breakdown -- but it can also be a breakthrough. Being fired isn't a career failure, it's a career opportunity.

Okay, so perhaps there are a few problems with Jupiter's approach to life. It's on the unrealistic and impractical side, with a tendency to fly too high before hitting the ground with a bump. But give Jupiter credit. It aims for mindful Mars, and even if it doesn't quite make it, it still gets further than those who never try.

In the charts of people who have had rough childhoods, those with strong Jupiter are the ones who survive in the best shape. Successful people, meanwhile, always have strong Jupiters. So clearly, this is definitely a planet whose finest qualities are worth cultivating.

What Jupiter does best is provide financial luck. One of the problems in the past 12 months has been Jupiter being close to Neptune in Aquarius, which brings what is known in astrology as 'false happiness' -- unrealistically high hopes that lead to a disappointing letdown. It's no surprise, then, that Jupiter-Neptune is intimately associated with speculation and high finance. It aims for a quick fix of a gamble that fails to come off. This dynamic has been present all of 2009, but the final hit comes in December; by 2010, it will mercifully be gone.

There are still some pitfalls to come this year, but they can be avoided by simply being more realistic. After all, there are times when remaining happy involves seeing life as it is -- this way, you avoid falling into a pothole and twisting your ankle. So if you aim to be happy despite the current recession, Jupiter has to be taken with a grain of salt.

Another one of Jupiter's strengths is how it reveals positive ways to look at deprivation. Can't afford a gym membership any longer? Well, walking to work means you might get to know more people along the way, and you'll stay just as fit. Feeding the family at home has become more difficult, as has eating out. So why not grow your own vegetables as Michelle Obama does? Not only will you find it fun getting your hands a little dirty with soil, but your family will want to pitch in. You've suddenly got a new healthy activity with a wonderful outcome of its own: homegrown food!

You've lost your job? This could be your chance to either re-envision your life, or pursue a change in career direction. In times of recession, people often find their true vocation. Use the jolt to open your eyes to new possibilities.

Jupiter is not only confident, it provides inspiration and an uncannily prophetic knack of knowing what will work. Trust your hunches. But keep this old saying in mind: Have faith, and tie up your donkey at the same time. Jupiter can't do it all.
