Jupiter is now in Sagittarius. Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 8, 2018 and leaves Sagittarius on December 2nd, 2019.
Jupiter In Scorpio
Jupiter has a 12-year cycle, meaning it spends approximately one year in each sign. That’s why Jupiter changing signs is the astrological event of the year.
Maybe you already felt the shift in one area of your life. When Jupiter changes signs, it moves from one house of your natal chart to the next.
If you are a Libra ascendant, Jupiter in Scorpio moved from your 1st house to the 2nd house. If you are a Scorpio Ascendant, Jupiter moved from your 12th house to your 1st house.
Jupiter moving into Scorpio basically means that the energy of Jupiter will start activating a different part of your chart.
Until October 2017, Jupiter has been in Libra, expanding Libra themes: relationships, beauty, fairness, justice. In Scorpio, Jupiter will expand Scorpio themes: transformation, shared resources, intimacy, psychology, power, healing.
Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, is almost like a second Sun. Thanks to its massive size and strong magnetic field, Jupiter has protected the Earth from asteroid impacts that would have destroyed us otherwise.
We wouldn’t be here without Jupiter! No wonder that in any school or tradition of Astrology, Jupiter is seen as the great benefactor, the luckiest and most benevolent planet.
Jupiter or Zeus, the king of God, is the all mighty, unquestionable force of the universe which always works in your favor. Whatever Jupiter touches, it makes it grow.
But what happens when Scorpio is put under the magnifying glass of Jupiter? Think about some people you know with strong Scorpionic energy. Jupiter transiting in Scorpio will be like a Scorpio on steroids.
For Scorpio, everything is “all or nothing”, black or white, death or alive, love or hate – no in-betweens. Scorpio wants you to transform yourself so you can become more resilient and grow into the next version of yourself.
In the process, Scorpio cuts the cords of the past, sheds the old, purges, releases toxins, explores the taboo, confronts psychological daemons – does whatever it takes so you can heal and grow.
And Jupiter in Scorpio? Jupiter in Scorpio will do even more of that. In the coming 13 months, every day, every encounter, everything will serve as an opportunity for transformation.
Are you afraid? Jupiter in Scorpio is not. Whatever your greatest fear is, Jupiter is going to make you explore it in the coming year. If you resist the process, you are going to suffer. If you go with it, you are going to be a different person at the end of the transit. Once you heal the ‘dark side’ it no longer has any power over you.
Jupiter is the natural ruler of Sagittarius, and in Scorpio, Jupiter is in its natural 12th house and therefore has a ‘Piscean’ flavor. Scorpio is the sign where Jupiter sheds his skin before it starts a new cycle in November 2018.
Is Scorpio, Jupiter retreats from the world and is less gregarious than we used to know him. In Scorpio, Jupiter wants to take his time to reflect and – yes – heal himself.
Jupiter is Scorpio will, therefore, bring deep healing for all of us. This is the year when you can get insights from the darkest corners of your psyche – Jupiter will bring them to the surface so healing can happen.
So far, it doesn’t sound like the best transit out there.
Now the good news.
Jupiter in Scorpio is going to be a great transit.
If in Libra, Jupiter received challenging aspects from Pluto (3 squares) and from Uranus (3 oppositions, we are still recovering from the last one) – in Scorpio, Jupiter is going to make mainly positive aspects.
One of the most beautiful transits we can get is Jupiter trine Neptune. The planet of luck and abundance (Jupiter) is in perfect alignment with the planet of God and higher beauty (Neptune).
Jupiter is trine Neptune on:
- December 3rd 2017 – Jupiter direct 11° in Scorpio trine Neptune direct 11° in Pisces
- May 25th 2018 – Jupiter retrograde at 16° Scorpio trine Neptune direct at 16° Pisces
- August 19th 2018 – Jupiter direct at 15° Scorpio trine Neptune retrograde at 15° Pisces
If you have planets between 10° and 17° in Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces, you are going to have an amazing time in the coming months.
Jupiter makes mainly positive aspects in the coming year, and this is a blessing. You needed this after a turbulent Jupiter in Libra. Jupiter in Scorpio will bring the long-awaited healing and will restore your faith in life.
If you still haven’t found what you are looking for in life, Jupiter in Scorpio will ask you to stop looking, and simply surrender and have faith that the universe will guide you the way. If you do that, you might just well find it.
