Jupiter, planet of expansion and optimism, is moving swiftly through pada four of Shravana nakshatra within the sign of Capricorn from February 18th to March 4th 2021.
Shravana is an auspicious nakshatra associated with wisdom and learning, particularly spoken spiritual knowledge, and its fourth pada relates to Cancer navamsha – the relationship and subtle body chart.
Jupiter has excellent qualities in this section, as opposed to its debilitation in Capricorn generally, where you can find underlying strength and positive healing energy. Cancer’s emotional empathy is excellent for looking after people and providing, and also giving yourself love and attention, with a very human touch that brings Jupiter’s energy down to earth.
Capricorn’s occasional narrowness and lack of faith is in suspension, and you can affirm and look ahead into the future with optimism and a broader vision. Go with your heart and first instinct rather than trying to anticipate or calculate, and trust in providence for what you need.
Shravana’s Shakti, or unique gift is ‘To Make Connection’, and it may be worth checking on people you know, providing support and also being a good listener. This asterism has an association with Saraswati, devata of wisdom, and the feminine Cancerian energy calls up the idea of a wise, benevolent mother figure.
This transit arrives with a strong Saturn planetary influence currently in the sky, where the focus is on security, belt-tightening and realism, but Jupiter now is an oasis and antidote to the heavy and restrictive atmosphere. It also coincides with Mercury, planet of the mind, going direct on February 21st, so you can have a second try at a goal with a more positive and confident outlook.
