Jupiter In Scorpio 2017-2018 – How It Is Going To Affect You

Did you feel the energy shift?

Jupiter just changed signs and entered Scorpio to stay there until November 8th 2018.

Jupiter has a 12-year cycle, meaning that 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 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.

Jupiter-Astro-Butterfly

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’ flavour. Scorpio is the sign where Jupiter sheds his skin before it starts a new cycle in November next year.

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 in a lifetime is Jupiter trine Neptune. The planet of luck and abundance in perfect alignment with the planet of God and higher beauty. And yes, we are going to have 3 such beautiful transits in the coming months.

Jupiter will 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.

Moreover, Jupiter will also sextile Pluto three times – between January and September 2018, a great transit for intimacy and healing.

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.

Countdown! Jupiter moves into Scorpio on October 11th 2017

Jupiter switches signs! On October 11th Jupiter leaves Libra and moves into Scorpio, taking transformation to the next level.

Jupiter will be staying in Scorpio until November 9th 2018.

Every year, Jupiter, the great benefactor, changes from one sign to the next, bringing 1 year of abundance in the sign transited by Jupiter.

You can expect 13 months of abundance in everything Scorpio stands for: money, psychology, intimacy and sex, other people’s resources, loans, investments, occultism, energy healing.

Scorpio rules everything that is hidden, everything that is taboo – all the secrets, all you hidden talents, gemstones,  transformation, the underworld, excavations, oil, cemeteries – Scorpio loves to dig deep, until there is nothing left.

Jupiter in Scorpio

Scorpio can bring crises because it really forces you to go to the bottom of things.

You just dig and dig and dig until there is nothing else to dig – no limiting beliefs, no repressed emotions, no preconceived assumptions – so you get to the core, to the real you.

Jupiter in Scorpio is the ultimate alchemist, transforming the deepest parts of our being and bringing them to the next level of consciousness.

When Jupiter, the planet of growth and expansion, enters the mysterious sign of Scorpio it will put the magnifying glass on everything Scorpio stands for.

Think of a person you know which personifies the Scorpio archetype. What is their energy like? Now imagine that energy multiplied 100 times. This is Jupiter in Scorpio.

Jupiter’s entrance into the intense sign of Scorpio on 11th of October 2017 marks the beginning of the soul excavation process.

The mysterious cycles of life and death, the tapped and untapped resources hiding in the shadows of our soul, the multi-layered universe we abide in, the never ending, ever flowing life energy – all lie under the realm of Jupiter in Scorpio.

During the transit of Jupiter is Scorpio we will get to the core of the concept of abundance, of infinite energy.

There are two ways to make sense of the world: through Saturn and through Jupiter.

Saturn shows us the limits. If you have a piece of chocolate and you eat it, the chocolate is gone. Chocolate is a material thing, and material things are ruled by Saturn.

Energy instead is infinite. The infinite energy is what Jupiter stands for. Energy cannot be destroyed, its nature is infinite. Just like Universe keeps expanding, so does energy.

Energy is not material. You enthusiasm, your values, your beliefs, your faith, are not material and therefore cannot be destroyed, cannot die.

If we understand the concept of energy, we understand the concept of abundance. Abundance is a state of mind. Abundance is everywhere, we just need to see it for what it is.

Jupiter is the planet of abundance – wherever Jupiter goes, will be amplified. But Jupiter also exaggerates.

Jupiter exaggerates the sign it transits, and so it will with the qualities of Scorpio.

In Scorpio, Jupiter will exaggerate Scorpio’s quest for the truth and will turn it into an obsession. With Jupiter in Scorpio, we will want to be right for the sake of being right, and invest time, money and energy in things that might not be worthy of our energy.

But in the process of finding the truth, of searching every corner, of digging every hole, you have the great opportunity to get to those untapped riches that have been hiding in the shadows.

During this transit you can discover a special talent you were not aware of.

Jupiter in Scorpio brings into your awareness all those parts of your life that have been hiding in the darkness, and will ask you to confront them and bring them to the surface.

Now is the time to confront your shadow. Jupiter in Scorpio will show you that it is exactly in your shadow, where you can find your greatest light.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson

Jupiter in Scorpio is a great time to tap into our inner kingdom and spiritual power. If you do it wisely, your life can be purged, purified, and transformed by the time Jupiter leaves Scorpio in November 2018.

What does Jupiter in Scorpio mean for you?

Jupiter is the planet of good luck, growth, opportunities and expansion. Jupiter is the magnifying glass of our solar system, bringing abundance in the area of your life transited by Jupiter.

Look in the house where you have this transit to get more clues. If Jupiter transits your 2nd house, you income will improve, if Jupiter transits your 4th house, you will experience abundance in your family, if Jupiter transits your 5th house, your romance will blossom.

If you have Jupiter in Scorpio natally you will experience your Jupiter return, which is a time of great expansion, joy, optimism, growth, wealth.

You know you have your Jupiter return if you are 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84 and so on. You have a Jupiter return once every 12 years.

Opportunities will come to your way easier and you will seem to be at the right place, at the right time. Remember, Jupiter is the King of all Gods, so you basically have a green light from heavens to manifest whatever your heart desires.

You can also experience these effects if you are a Scoprio, if you have Scorpio ascendant, or if you have the Moon or Venus in Scorpio.

Jupiter Is Now Direct – Expand Your Horizons

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?

Jupiter direct

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.

Jupiter Turns Retrograde – Keep The Faith

Jupiter will station and begin its 4-month retrograde period on February 6th 2017.

Jupiter turns retrograde at 23° Libra – if you have planets or angles around 23° in any sign (but especially Libra, Aries, Cancer, Capricorn, Gemini or Aquarius) this station, when the essence of Jupiter is at its strongest –will speak to you deeply. The same goes if your rising sign is in Sagittarius or Pisces, because Jupiter is your (co)chart ruler.

5-jupiter-retrograde

To get more insights about the area of your like that is going to be affected by the Jupiter station, have a look at which house Jupiter is currently transiting.  For example, Jupiter is transiting my sixth house – so I started to question my values about my lifestyle and nutrition (with a stellium in the 6th house, I am already a nutrition freak and eat very healthy, but there is always room for improvement;)

Jupiter is retrograde until the 9th of June when will station direct at  13° Libra.  Libras born between 2nd and 12th of October will benefit the most because Jupiter, the ‘grand benefic’  will conjunct their Sun three times!

Jupiter retrograde motion will effect all of us in some way or another. Jupiter retrograde will encourage us to reflect on the big questions of life and see things in different ways.  If Jupiter direct is the Preacher, Jupiter retrograde is the Devil’s advocate. In this context, the Devil’s advocate mission is take a closer look and question our beliefs, as well as the beliefs of our society.

When Jupiter slows down we will have the chance to see the details we missed when Jupiter was direct. Jupiter is now in an opposition to Uranus, so it’s very likely that the upcoming months will mark new discoveries, breakthroughs and unexpected turns of events. And because Jupiter is in Libra most of the breakouts will be in the areas of relationships and partnerships.

Jupiter retrograde in Libra is an invitation to keep our faith alive and strong, without losing sight of our purpose.

This retrograde of Jupiter is highly beneficial because it will start with a trine to the Sun, and it will end again with another trine to the Sun. In the middle of the retrograde, the tension will increase, as Jupiter will apply its 2nd opposition to Uranus on March the 2nd and the 2nd square to Pluto on March 30th.

Here is an overview of all the aspects Jupiter makes during the retrograde period:

  • February 11th  – Jupiter  at 23° Libra trine Sun at 23° Aquarius
  • February 21stJupiter at 22° Libra trine Mercury at 22° Aquarius
  • February 27thJupiter at 22° Libra opposite Mars at 22° Aries
  • March 2ndJupiter at 22° Libra opposite Uranus at 22° Aries
  • March 24thJupiter at 20° Libra opposite Mercury at 20° Aries
  • March 30th  – Jupiter at 19° Libra square Pluto at 19° Capricorn
  • April 7thJupiter at 18° Libra opposite Sun  at 18° Aries
  • May 12thJupiter at 14° Libra trine Mars at 14° Gemini
  • May 19thJupiter at 13° Libra opposite Venus at 13° Aries
  • June 3rdJupiter at 13° Libra trine Sun at 13° Gemini
  • June 9thJupiter turns direct at 13° Libra

The Jupiter Uranus opposition and the Jupiter Pluto square will make the upcoming months rather energy draining. Keep the faith and remember that the darkness always turns to light.

Jupiter Opposite Uranus – A Cosmic High Five

Feeling hyped up? The clash of the two “astro titans” Jupiter and Uranus might be the reason why.

Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries is one of the most important transits of the decade – it only takes place once every 14 years! The transit is exact on the following dates:

  • December 25th, 2016 – at 20° (Jupiter direct, Uranus retrograde)
  • March 2nd, 2017 – at 22° (Jupiter retrograde, Uranus direct)
  • September 27th, 2017 – at 27° (Jupiter direct, Uranus retrograde)

This is one of the most exciting transits you can experience and it will bring rapid changes and breakthroughs of all kinds.

jupiter-opposite-uranus

Jupiter is the great benefactor, the king of all gods, Jupiter magnifies and inflates everything it touches.

Uranus is the rebel, the freedom-seeker, the reformer and the revolutionary.

Together, the two stand for the faith and the courage to break free from the old and reinvent the new.

Jupiter opposite Uranus is a very progressive aspect. Things are likely to happen in a BIG scale and impact our society as a whole.

In 1989 when we had the Jupiter Uranus oppposition on the Cancer Capricorn axis, the Berlin wall and the Communism collapsed and the Cold War was declared over. South Africa’s new prime minister F.W. de Klerk started to dismantle the apartheid regime. The successful Galileo spacecraft was launched in 1989, to be purposefully destroyed 14 years later, in 2003, exactly at the time of the next Jupiter Uranus opposition. No coincidences in astrology 😉

In 2003 when we had again a Jupiter Uranus opposition this time on the Virgo Pisces axis, the US space shuttle Colombia crashed, and the U.S. and Britain launched the war against Iraq.

If we look back in time when we had this transit we notice some common themes: profound changes in societal structures, taking a stand, restlessness, revolutions, techonological progress, scientific discoveries.

The current Jupiter Uranus opposition is on the Aries Libra axis, signifying a revolution in relationships and partnerships, as well as opportunities for those looking for new relationships and partnerships.

If you’re single, things can now move really speedily! Single or committed, Jupiter opposite Uranus is good news if if you’ve been feeling stuck in love or if you want to move your relationship to the next level.

However, let’s not forget that an opposition is an opposition and it will bring friction. Jupiter in Libra encourages you to cooperate with others in an optimistic and generous way. Uranus in Aries wants you to be free and “Do it your way” – Uranus  is NOT that interested in pleasing others.

As a result, you can feel a conflict between your desire to fit in and be a team player, and your desire to express our unique self.

If your everyday reality does not allow you to express yourself, if what you’re doing for a living bores you, right now you can feel compelled to take a stand and radically change your life. During this transit you will feel an urge to improve yourself, to evolve, to upgrade your reality.

But be careful – because your energy levels are very high right now you can be more impulsive than usual.

Like with any Uranus transit, changes will come, and the best way to prepare for Uranus is not to prepare at all. When you are ready to accept an outcome, any outcome, when you allow the unexpected to happen, this is when you realize the full potential of every moment.

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom – William Blake

To find out how the Jupiter Uranus opposition will affect you personally, note the houses where the oppposition falls in your natal chart, as well as any aspect Jupiter or Uranus applies to your personal planets or angles.

If you have planets around 20-29° in Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) – especially Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Mars, the Ascendant, the Midheaven, or if your natal Jupiter makes an aspect with your natal Uranus you will especially be in the focus.

“It’s not for sale at any price” – Jupiter Square Pluto

Rick: [about his club] “It’s not for sale”

Ferrari: “You haven’t heard my offer”

Rick: “It’s not for sale at any price”

This quote from the classic movie Casablanca is a great metaphor for what the upcoming Jupiter square Pluto stands for. A powerful and elegant answer to the even more classical “I will make you an offer you can’t refuse” (from the movie Godfather), Jupiter – Pluto speaks of those things in life that are non-negotiable. Real power, real strength, real character, strong beliefs ARE non-negotiable.

jupiter-square-pluto

This transit also speaks about faith. When we have faith, we know things will turn out the way they are supposed to, beyond dear and beyond uncertainty.

Jupiter is in Libra and Pluto is in Capricorn. Libra and Capricorn are cardinal signs – Libra rules partnerships and relationships, while Capricorn is about the way we want to project ourselves into the world. When in square, we will be torn between “saving our relationships” and “saving our face”. When everything becomes a matter of principle, it is impossible to compromise.

On a positive side, Pluto’s (king on the underworld) intensity combined with Jupiter (‘larger than life’ king of all gods), gives us the strength to overcome any obstacle. Together the two will give us a tremendous drive to succeed, no matter what.

On a more negative note, Jupiter/Pluto square can turn into, “I’m right and you’re wrong”, my faith, religion, beliefs, are superior to yours. Our desire to compete and win can be stronger than any reason. Mixing with people from different cultures or backgrounds can lead to disputes. Religious mania or extremism are possible outcomes if we remain single-minded.

Because a square is a square, it is likely we will face some sort of tests and challenges in our quest for success – but it is through these challenges that we will become even stronger and more resilient.

All in all, transiting Jupiter square Pluto makes us want to succeed, and succeed big-time. And because we want it so bad, it is highly likely we WILL succeed. Success, power and influence are all possible now – just keep in mind that, no matter what Rick says, there will always be a price to pay 😉

Leonard Cohen had an almost exact Jupiter / Pluto square (0°03’) in his natal chart. His music, for example the song Hallelujah, evokes the “battle” of spirituality, religion, higher purpose (Jupiter) and the deep, soul-searching call for the Truth, beyond any dogma or ideology (Pluto).

People with planets or angles around 19° in Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) are especially affected by this transit.

Jupiter Opposite Chiron

jupitar-opposite-chiron

We won’t have this aspect in the next 60 years so this might be our very unique opportunity to learn about how to grow into a greater human being by taking a look a closer look at ourselves, and learning to accept ourselves with all our scars and imperfections.

The opposition takes place on the Virgo Pisces axis, the axis of self development and service. Because Jupiter is involved, the lesson we learn now is one of generosity and kindness. We can only give to others if we learn to give to ourselves.

Kindness ultimately is not a skill to be mastered, we all have it inside ourselves, but we can only cultivate it if we accept the idea of being without any expectations.
