On May 16th, 2023 Jupiter enters Taurus. Jupiter will stay in Taurus until May 25th, 2024.
Jupiter’s ingress into a new sign is one of the most important transits of the year. Something in your life (indicated by the area of your life ruled by Jupiter) is about to change.
Jupiter is the planet of growth, expansion, and abundance. Taurus is the sign of resources, money, values, concrete results, consistency and common-sense.
At a mundane level, Jupiter in Taurus will bring focus to resources, financial markets, and innovation. At a personal level, the house Jupiter transits in your chart will shed light on the area of your life where you want to experience growth and abundance.
Jupiter in Taurus will shift our growth focus to material possessions, financial growth, and a desire for comfort and stability, encouraging us to take practical steps toward achieving our goals.
Jupiter in Taurus will bring more clarity around topics connected to your Taurus house. In the last couple of years, Uranus and North Node have come up with a grand idea. Although enticing, this idea may have made us feel too big for our boots.
When Jupiter enters Taurus, we will finally see some real progress.
You may already feel the pull of the unknown… but it’s Jupiter’s ingress into Taurus that will give you the confidence to pursue those wild dreams and opportunities.
Jupiter in Taurus is your wild card for the next 12 months, but keep in mind that at the time of the ingress Jupiter will exactly square Pluto (at 0° Aquarius). Before you’ll see some real progress, take an honest look at what’s been brushed under the carpet and clean up that residual mess.
Jupiter In Taurus – The Aspects
Jupiter in Aries didn’t engage in any major aspects (except for Jupiter conjunct Chiron). This explains why Jupiterian themes went rather unnoticed. The Jupiter in Taurus transit is a completely different story.
While in Taurus, Jupiter engages in a LOT of important aspects:
- Jupiter (0° Taurus) Square Pluto (0° Aquarius) – May 17th, 2023
- Jupiter conjunct North Node (3° Taurus) – June 1st, 2023
- Jupiter (7° Taurus) Sextile Saturn (7° Pisces) – June 19th, 2023
- Jupiter conjunct Uranus (20° Taurus) – April 20th, 2024
- Jupiter conjunct Venus (29° Taurus) – May 23rd, 2024
Jupiter’s ingress into Taurus starts with a BANG! On May 17th, 2023 Jupiter is square Pluto in Aquarius.
Jupiter in Taurus square Pluto in Aquarius can create tension and conflict between our desire for material growth and our need for transcendence and transformation.
Pluto will push our buttons and challenge us to look deeply at our values, goals and beliefs, and to question whether they are a reflection of our highest truth.
Jupiter In Taurus And Money
Most people want more money and abundance in their life. But what does money mean? What does abundance mean?
Jupiter in Taurus is here to tell us that real abundance is a reflection of our own value creation. Most people who win the lottery or inherit large sums of money end up broke and miserable.
We are happy and accomplished not when we have lots of money, but when the money we have is a reflection of the value we create in the world.
Money is not something we “win”, it is something we create. This breakthrough is very liberating. When we understand the relationship between value-creation and abundance, we know the exact steps we need to take to create an abundant life that’s an expression of our unique gifts and talents.
If you don’t have money, it’s not your fault. The copy-paste education system and the power structures in place are not very conducive to individual value creation. But this will change when Jupiter and Uranus are in Taurus.
We can all learn about money and abundance from Taurus.
It may seem paradoxical that Taurus is considered both hardworking and lazy. Taurus IS hardworking – probably the most hardworking sign of the zodiac. Taurus is the archetypal cash cow. The Generator in Human Design.
But Taurus also has common sense. Taurus will not get duped into over-delivering (and burning out) like a Virgo does, nor trapped in a meaningless rat race to get to the top (at all costs) like Capricorn does.
If you see a Taurus who doesn’t work, that’s because there’s something fundamentally wrong with the way they are expected to make a living. Taurus will know it in their gut and will not do it.
Taurus works as long as their work 1) makes sense and 2) makes them happy. Taurus works to enjoy the bounty of its hard work. There’s something simple, natural and easy about the way Taurus approaches life.
When Jupiter is in Taurus, our society will start to approach life like a bull does. What can you learn from Taurus? How can you take a more Taurus approach to value creation?
Jupiter In Taurus – 1988, 2000, 2012
Jupiter spends approximately 1 year in each sign, returning to the same sign every 12 years.
To get an idea of how the upcoming Jupiter in Taurus transit may influence you, try to recall what was going on in your life when Jupiter was in Taurus.
The last times Jupiter was in Taurus was from June 2011-June 2012, from July-October 1999 to February-June 2000, and from March-July 1988 to December 1988-March 1989.
From a mundane perspective, Jupiter’s previous transits through Taurus have been rather peaceful and prosperous. A notable exception is the dot.com bubble that burst in March 2000, when Jupiter in Taurus was square Neptune in Aquarius.
Taurus is a down-to-earth, common-sense sign that will always point to what’s obvious.
Whatever is not built on sustainable foundations will no longer thrive during a Taurus transit. Looking back, the dot.com bubble burst for obvious reasons, to counter Neptune’s unrealistic enthusiasm for digitalization (Aquarius).
With Jupiter square Pluto at 0° Aquarius in the 2nd half of May 2023, some similar March 2000 themes may come to our awareness. This time there are some notable differences. Unlike Neptune, Pluto is not unrealistic. Pretty much the contrary. Pluto LOVES to expose the dirt.
So if something goes south when Jupiter enters Taurus, that’s likely because Pluto wants to expose some sort of shady business practices (Taurus) or dark aspects of digitalization and AI (Aquarius).
One of the greatest dangers of AI is blurring the lines between what’s real and what’s not.
AI can now create very realistic images of people or things that are not real. AI can take a sample of someone’s voice and clone it to create a completely new speech. And Jupiter in Taurus (the most down-to-earth Taurus placement) doesn’t like this.
How will Jupiter square Pluto play out? A square is a tense aspect that shows what’s not working and needs adjustment. Jupiter in Tarurus’ common sense and appreciation of the natural world will be at odds with Pluto in Aquarius’ agenda to achieve power and control through the means of technology.
This theme is further emphasized by Jupiter’s upcoming conjunction with the North Node. In May 2023 we are not only dealing with a Jupiter-Pluto square, but with a Jupiter conjunct North Node in Taurus square Pluto in Aquarius and opposite South Node in Scorpio.
This transit is definitely not easy. Some adjustments are inevitable. We first need to fix what’s not working so we can then reap the benefits of next year’s Jupiter-Uranus conjunction (April 2024).
Jupiter In Taurus – The 2024 Vision
Jupiter-Uranus conjunctions are times of extraordinary advancements, progress and innovation. The type of progress a Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Taurus brings is real, and here to stay.
Jupiter’s transit through Taurus ends triumphantly with a Jupiter-Venus conjunction at 29° Taurus on May 23rd, 2024.
Venus-Jupiter conjunctions are some of the most auspicious transits in astrology. Venus is in domicile in Taurus. This transit screams abundance and prosperity!
We’re truly up for some extraordinary developments 1 year from now… but until then, we want to be mindful of the challenges the Jupiter-Pluto square will bring in the next few weeks.
Jupiter starts its journey in Taurus with an argument with Pluto. And it ends with a Venus celebration.
If we want prosperity and abundance (Venus conjunct Jupiter at 29° Taurus), we first need to release unhealthy beliefs and behaviors that keep us trapped in resentment and fear (Jupiter at 0° Taurus square Pluto).
To work with the upcoming Jupiter-Pluto square, make a list of all your financial and partnership entanglements that keep you trapped and enslaved.
Examples are: unspoken conversations with your partner, escalating debt you’re too fearful to look into, mortgage that needs to be refinanced, properties that need to be sold, or more insidious things like an unconscious fear to earn more because you don’t want to share your resources (or pay more taxes).
The silver lining? 2024’s Jupiter-Uranus and Jupiter-Venus conjunction. Your life CAN take an unexpected turn for the better.
And while it’s important to work with the challenges of the Jupiter-Pluto square, an even better place to start is with a beautiful Venus-Jupiter vision for the future.
When Jupiter enters Taurus, ask yourself:
What is my Venus-Jupiter vision? What would make me truly happy? What’s my idea of a simple, beautiful, prosperous life? In which ways can I simplify my life? How would a Taurus go about it?
