“You have to be uncomfortable in order to be successful, in some ways. If you stay in your comfort zone you would never do the things that you need to do.” Lights Poxlietner


Comfort zones can be cozy and reassuring for a while – kind of like putting meat and potatoes on our plate; we know what to expect.  But sooner or later, it seems that most of us have a desire to move beyond the standard fare and explore or sample something new, even if we may eventually, seemingly, revert back to our old, effortless ways. The thing is, once we have stretched ourselves, and allowed in a bit more of the world around us, we are forever changed, to some degree. Heard someone say the other day,“Once you view things from the top, things below never quite appear the same.”

Today, with the empowering Sun, in renewing Scorpio, trining optimistic Jupiter (9:34 am EST), the planet of growth and abundance, we appear to be receiving an enthusiastic, cosmic nod from the Universe to go ahead and choose new entrees from the menu, metaphorically speaking, even though we may be pretty sure, in advance, that unless there’s also meat and potatoes, somewhere in the mix, we probably won’t really be too crazy about what is served up to us.

Sarah Ban Breathnach, author of Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy, eloquently reminds us, though, that we always have a choice in the matter, regarding whether or not we want to stay wedded to the past. ”Today expect something good to happen to you (Sun trine Jupiter) no matter what occurred yesterday. Realize the past no longer holds you captive. It can only continue to hurt you if you hold on to it. Let the past go. A simply abundant world awaits.”

What one action could you take today that would bring you more joy and contentment, qualities traditionally associated with benefic Jupiter? What do you think is also at the core of having an “abundant life?” Too, does abundance necessarily equate with having “more of something?” How might having “less of something” really be an abundant blessing in disguise?

Also, the sign placement of Jupiter, in our natal charts, along with how that planet is aspected, can provide us with clues as to how we experience a feeling of abundance in our lives and what variables/activities may lead to it.

Astrology in the News?: According to the Wall Street Journal, American Airlines and US Airways have reportedly reached a settlement today with the U.S. Justice Department over their proposed, planned merger to create the world’s largest airline. In astrology, both Mercury and Jupiter govern the travel industry, with Uranus specifically covering aviation. Perhaps the Sun trine Jupiter today, along with Mercury’s trine to Neptune, may have exerted a positive influence here in hammering out this agreement. Sun-Jupiter can also be representative of big business. Jupiter is also often a factor when gargantuan enterprises are involved, such as creating the world’s largest airline. Of course, we also have change agent Uranus still exactly squaring transforming Pluto, which can also reconfigure matters.
