The Sun forms its final square to Jupiter in Cancer on April 1. This is when you will see if risks taken last fall (on Oct. 12, to be precise) will pan out or not.

The idea is that you won't get anywhere interesting in life by playing it safe or sticking to the tried-and-true. Jupiter's motto is "nothing ventured, nothing gained," and this week, you will reap the rewards of that venture. If your efforts were measured, then you will see half-baked results — but if you gave something your best shot, then you will be rewarded tenfold. Jupiter favors those who to take running leaps of faith.

This is symptomatic of tensions churning underneath. It's clear that you are being forced to make changes in your life that you did not choose to make. Everyone deals with change differently, and your response is to hold on until the last possible minute. That's OK as long as it isn't exacting a steep price. But if it is, then it's time to let go.
