Last night’s new moon in Cancer arrived while I was in bed (or getting ready for bed), so I woke this morning feeling as if I needed to make a fresh start. However, I’m not really sure where to start.
The new moon occurred in my ninth house, just three degrees away from my midheaven. Jupiter’s station in Scorpio was occurring simultaneously, just minutes away from the cusp of my second house. Jupiter corresponds to the ninth house, so I’m going to look at that event, too, to try to establish some context.
Technically, the new moon should be telling me to expand my horizons: to look beyond what I’ve been doing to glean some greater meaning from the current events of my life. Jupiter’s return to direct motion in the part of my chart that rules over possessions should be telling me that a return to more straightforward financial growth is imminent. Curiously, Jupiter turned retrograde just as I was hired at my new job. I didn’t start immediately due to circumstances beyond my control, but the plan was set into motion at that time.
So, here I am a few months later, happy with the changes I’ve made to my life and looking forward to going to work every day, but I’m absolutely sure that I’m not making enough money.
I’m not sure what to take away from these current cosmic events. Do I continue on this path, hoping that it becomes somewhat more lucrative in the future, or do I use this day as a starting point to find something else to do?
I’m not going to lie; money makes me happy and I’d really like to make more. With the sun moving into my tenth house in a couple of days and Jupiter starting to pick up speed in my second house, I presume that my focus will remain on material matters. I’m just not sure that I’m going to find anything else to do that makes me happy.
Fortunately, this is the eternal struggle in my life, and I’ve been through this before. The last time I took a job out of desperation it turned into a ten-year gig that paid very well. Perhaps the lesson I should learn from anything occurring in my ninth house or involving Jupiter is that my Jack-of-all-trades persona is a blessing and not a curse. Right now, I’m doing plenty of things that I like to do and I’m certainly not suffering because my focus is all over the place. Still, it would be nice to stop worrying about money for once in my life.
I guess I still have the lottery . . .
