When the planet of expansion travels through its own sign, we can expect expansion of all kinds. Political, economic, and expansion of the physical body as well since Jupiter can bring self-indulgence and complacency.

The Labor Department yesterday announced that employers boosted hiring and raised earnings a half percent in December. Economic sectors with employment gains included architectural and engineering outfits, hospitals and doctors’ offices, banks, computer design firms, bars and restaurants, hotels and motels, and schools. This suggests expansion in planning for building, if not building, which may suggest the higher aspirations of Jupiter. Entertainment and travel are certainly under Jupiter’s domain, as is higher education.

This could give some hints as to where to invest your money over the next year. Just be aware that the cycle of squares from Jupiter to Uranus (the first of which is occurring now) could bring sudden surprises to your portfolio.
