On October 10th, Jupiter moves from the balanced and harmonious sign of Libra into the intense, passionate, and deeply psychic sign of Scorpio, where it will remain until November 8th, 2018. Throughout the course of this transit, deep secrets will be expanded on and brought out into the open and difficult Truths that have been suppressed and repressed will be revealed. On an interpersonal level, this transit brings intense and passionate connections that reach far beyond the surface of the mundane. In Scorpio, Jupiter desires to get to the core nature of everything it touches, shining the spotlight on all things dark, hidden and taboo.
Sly and mysterious Scorpio is very protective of that which it holds dear, but with Jupiter in the mix the unseen realms are expanded on, and occulted information is more readily shared. During this time we will see an exponential expansion on all topics deemed profane or taboo. Scorpio is the sign associated with sex, death, debt, power, and the underworld— and over the course of the next year; all of these topics will be given the limelight. Jupiter in Scorpio forces us to face our deepest fears and draws attention to the slimy underbelly of our psyches that we’d normally prefer not to look at. In typical Jupiter nature, this will, of course, prove to be a good thing overall as that which remains unexamined and repressed tends to wreak the most havoc. Making the unconscious conscious is what this transit is all about, and it’s shaping up to happen in a grandiose way!

October 26th: Sun conjunct Jupiter at 3 degrees in Scorpio
This transit brings greater optimism, heightens our ambitions, and highlights the major themes of the year-long transit of Jupiter through Scorpio! Pay attention to what comes up today, especially in regards to expansion, gaining perspective, long-term goals, passions, obsessions, and behavior that seems a bit grandiose or excessive.
Jupiter Trine Neptune: December 2nd, 2017 (11 degrees); May 25th, 2018 (16 degrees); August 19th, 2018 (15 degrees)
Deeply compassionate, connected and loving energy that deepens our empathic, psychic and spiritual nature. This influence allows us to become much more idealistic and creative, and also enhances our ability to see the Truth behind the veil
Jupiter sextile Pluto: January 15th, 2018 (19 degrees); April 14th, 2018 (21 degrees); September 12th, 2018 (18 degrees)
This empowering aspect brings positive transformation to the outdated structures in our lives. On a global scale, this energy can help us to see through the lies and corruption being fed to us by the government, big corporations, and all those who hold power over us but ultimately shouldn’t. Ideally, this aspect will assist us in breaking out of old paradigms that no longer serve us, in order to expand on the Truth and create new structures that hold much greater value and integrity.
Jupiter Retrograde: March 9th, 2018, Jupiter stations retrograde at 23 degrees; July 11th, 2018, Jupiter stations direct at 13 degrees.
While Jupiter is technically “stronger” and more influential while in retrograde, Jupiter in retrograde tends to bring expansion that is more internalized. At this time morals, values, religious and spiritual philosophy, and examining our own inner Truth and integrity are favored. Internally, we can feel much more optimistic even if we are not experiencing an external manifestation of growth and good fortune at this time.
