On Oct. 10th 2017, Jupiter moved from relationship-oriented, harmony-seeking Libra
into passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio,
where it will journey until November 8th, 2018. Jupiter has a 12-year
cycle, so the last time it traveled through this transformative sign was from
Oct. 2005 to Nov. 2006; the time before that was Nov. 1993 to Dec. 1994.
Think back to those times... what
possibilities or opportunities arose for you? In what ways did you grow or
expand? What felt like a birth or a new beginning at that time? How could you
take all of that to the next level?
One thing to keep in mind when looking at those dates in the
past: you are no longer the same person. Your level of consciousness that you
have now, is very different from what is was 12 or 24 years ago. The past never
repeats itself in the same exact way, especially not when we have been
continually growing and evolving on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual
Jupiter symbolizes the principle of
expansion; in Libra it holds a magnifying glass over “fair play",
moderation and balance within our relationships and our environment -- and
changes our perspective on justice and peace. Since Libra is all about weighing
our options and wanting to be fair and just, we tend to not make decisions very
easily, rather we tend to go back and forth, back and forth, trying to get to
the ideal of what we are seeking.
With Jupiter in Scorpio, the
magnifying glass now swings over to authentic, emotional commitments or
connections. We are invited to seek a deeper understanding of our subconscious
drives and fears, of any suppressed or denied parts of ourselves, so we can
feel more fully and authentically connected to all parts of ourselves (and
thereby feel empowered). Everything in the human unconscious is lit up.
Jupiter promotes a greater
understanding of all of our emotions (the good the bad and the ugly, the
instinctual and intuitive) and our ability or inability to have intimacy. We
tend to have more of an all-or-nothing, do-or-die attitude towards life… Sex,
money, power, shared resources and emotional vitality (i.e. passion) become key
We can definitely attract the most
good fortune when we give our “all” into a project or undertaking -- and use
our magnetic powers to heal others.
For the next 13 months, we are supported in discovering our motivations and releasing
what holds us back from achieving our true desires. We’re also supported in
feeling fully empowered in collaborations with others. This is a good time for
dealing with outdated psychological patterns, clearing out the basement, or
embarking on an deep, meaningful adventure.
The phase now beginning emphasizes
detoxing and clearing out what is "broken" or unhealthy, thereby
giving us a new lease on life. We are more passionate and persistent at this
time. We learn about giving up something in order to get (or create) something
empowering (for ourselves and others — empowerment is key!)
This process very well could
operate on an unconscious level, so any shadow work that we invest in will pay
off; we are able to feel more optimistic about our discoveries and we gain a
new perspective about those suppressed or denied parts of ourselves.
Since Scorpio also deals with other
people's resources, we can see greater possibilities when it comes to financial
collaborations, and any gifts or talents that others offer us. Merging and
connecting our talents with others will most likely feel exhilarating and
create a fresh start or a new birth of some kind.
We are also more likely to be
enthusiastic for deeper studies and meanings -- all that is taboo or mysterious
(perhaps even occult), psychology, research of all types and
levels... and the possibility for deep bonding, whether on a physical or
Questions you could ask yourself:
What might promote a deeper connection to myself? Is there a journey I could
embark on that would open my eyes to a deeper understanding of my own psyche?
What needs to end, for a renewed empowerment and passion for life to emerge?
Collectively, we will probably see
the full spectrum of possibilities expressed; Scorpio is complex, with
potentially high, positive meanings, along with darker ones. That which is
taboo is brought to the surface. We see our fears crystalized and expressed in
the outside world.
The lower vibrations of Scorpio
such as repression, obsession, dark and heavy brooding, addictions, extreme
behaviors and power struggles might show up as well. No matter what we
experience on a collective level, ultimately, if we are open to seeing the
bigger picture, our own personal journey will guide us into a deeper
understanding of ourselves.
Pluto as the modern ruler, and Mars
as the traditional ruler of Scorpio play an
important role in our journey towards greater empowerment.
Saturn moved through Scorpio from Oct. 2012 until Dec. 2014, and June 2015 until Sept. 2015.
As Jupiter moves over the same ground in our charts, we get an opportunity to
build on the structures and groundwork that was laid back then. Think
back to that time: Did you do the work? What structures did you build at that
time? What has changed for you since? How could you create a bigger win or
Where does the Jupiter-in-Scorpio
transit fall in your own birth chart? What aspects does it make during the
year-long transit? How does a wise response to one house support more expansion
in the next one? What outward opportunities arise as Jupiter interacts with any
of your personal planets? Where is your natal Jupiter in your own Birth chart?

those questions, we also covered the Jupiter movement through Scorpio in great
