Life is good! Jupiter just turned direct after a 4-month hibernation period. What makes Jupiter’s direct motion so special is that it took place immediately after the Full Moon in Sagittarius. And Jupiter is Sagittarius’ ruling planet. What happens when the planet of luck, happiness and generosity turns direct? Life starts to move forward.
After 4 months of doubting our goals, hopes and dreams, it is time to start over again with full confidence. Jupiter direct is about going forward, no matter what. No dream is too high, no challenge is too great for the God of all Gods!
Ready for the next big adventure of your life?
Anything we start in the days following June 9th (when Jupiter turned direct) will be blessed with Jupiter’s luck and good fortune . Especially if your relationships have been stagnant (Jupiter is in Libra, the sign of partnerships of all kind) now it is time to take action and bring them “back to life”.
If you have Sagittarius or Pisces ascendant, or planets or angles around 13° Libra you will benefit greatly from this energy. Jupiter cycles starts every 12 years, so if you are 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96 years of age, you have your Jupiter return. During Jupiter return our desire to expand our horizons, our desire to travel, to experience the world, to learn and grow is stronger than ever.
Does Jupiter really bring good luck? Jupiter has always been associated with good fortunes. Jupiter, the protector of the Romans, the God of all Gods in Olympus, and the giant gas ball of our solar system is indeed linked to expansion, growth, and good fortune.
It is believed that the pull of Jupiter’s gravity has helped shape the fate of our solar system. In the early years of our solar system’s history, Jupiter, thanks to his immense gravitational field, has stopped asteroids form bombarding the smaller planets, including the Earth. We won’t be here without Jupiter!
Jupiter gives a sense of optimism and faith, being the official ruler of religion and missionaries. No matter how bad things get, Jupiter always brings a positive outlook. He truly believes that things can ultimately turn out well.
“People who wonder if the glass is half empty or half full, miss the point. The glass is refillable.”
Jupiter loves scale and he doesn’t like to stay small. He wants to go farther than anyone else. That’s why Jupiter rulers everything that is “higher” or “farther” – higher education, long distance travel, faraway and exotic places, foreigners, government and religion.
Under Jupiter’s beam, we are more keen to experience new places – either literally or with the mind’s eye – and to seek a higher meaning in everything we do. Our risk appetite also increases, as well as our sense of adventure – Jupiter transits are notorious for giving us a push to move into unknown territories.
When Jupiter goes over important points in our chart, we suddenly get more interested in different places, different cultures and different points of view. We get excited about the unexpected, about the possibility of discovering something new.
Does Jupiter trigger any point in your chart? Take a trip, read a book, or get in contact with a foreign culture. This is a good time to broaden your perspective and grow.
Saturn, Jupiter’s sky neighbor has been for a long time in Sagittarius, trying to temper Sagittarius’ notorious optimism. Saturn has been teaching the archer some valuable life lessons and although he hasn’t completed his mission yet, we are all less impressed with Saturn’s lessons. Right now, Jupiter direct, stronger than ever, is infusing everyone and everything with optimism and joie de vivre and as a result, Saturn’s power is starting to fade. We’ve learned our lessons, thank you very much Saturn. We are now ready to move on.
The world is changing and our beliefs are changing too. Jupiter direct is giving us the enthusiasm we need to change what is not working, what is keeping us stagnant. Which hopes and dreams have you been neglecting? Jupiter direct is the sign you’ve been waiting for. Time to take action and make your dreams a reality!
In the spirit of Jupiter direct, in the following week I will be doing readings focused on relocation and travel astrology. In you are planning a move to a different city or country, or if you wonder which places are best to travel check out my Etsy store. Knowing your exact time of birth is required for this type of reading.
