What Happens to Scorpio During Jupiter's Transit in Scorpio?
Scorpio in Jupiter Dates:October 10, 2017, to November 8, 2018
Jupiter will spend over a year (almost thirteen months) in Scorpio. The last time Jupiter transited Scorpio was from October 2005 to November 2006. What we started during this period is now enjoying a Jupiter return, so that it might blossom, increase, or require adjustments in order to grow further.
Jupiter in Scorpio Horoscopes: What it Means for Scorpio:
Jupiter entering Scorpio on October 10th, 2017, puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar first house, Scorpio. From October 2017 to November 2018, Jupiter is in your sign! This approximately one-year transit comes only every twelve years and serves to bring you out of your shell. You’re ready to take on the world. This is a time for exploring your needs and pursuing your dreams. Your personality, image, body image, and confidence in yourself expand to new levels with Jupiter in your sign from October 2017 to November 2018. You see whole new possibilities, and your vision of life is panoramic.
If you’ve done your inner “work” well while Jupiter was transiting your solar twelfth house from September 2016 to October 2017, this new transit can be an especially rewarding period. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world are growing exponentially. Freedom is something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it’s pursued without necessary attention to responsibilities.
You are more willing to enjoy new experiences and to rid yourself of those things that have been holding you back from truly living and owning your life.
There can be new projects begun now that have long-term potential. You may not yet know where you’re headed with them, but you’re certainly enthusiastic about starting anew.
Expanding your horizons through higher learning or travel might also figure strongly. This is a time for aligning your behavior with what you believe is right. You are taking more “me” time, which is in fact long overdue.
This is also a strong time for material affairs, money, self-worth, and personal possessions. Jupiter is the natural ruler of the resources sector in your solar chart. This partly coincides with a Saturn transit to this sector, so there may be some restrictions involved with these areas only until December 2017.
After December 2017, there will be an easier flow. There is generally good energy for bringing more structure and simplicity to your material world. This influence can help you to actualize dreams, as Jupiter and Saturn working together can contribute to bringing plans to life. How you handle your money can affect your outlook very strongly during this period.
You are seeking out a new beginning – a fresh start, of sorts – and your desire to do right is especially strong. Work or projects that you have been working on in private or behind the scenes may now begin to pay off. There is less focus on serving and helping others now, perhaps because this is no longer as necessary (for example, a child can go off to college, or even the end of a relationship that took up a lot of your energy and resources, from which you are now enjoying some level of freedom), and now you can put some of your personal interests on the front burner.
You present yourself more joyfully and confidently. People love to be around you during this cycle, wanting to soak up the good vibes.
You won’t feel like sitting around during this period of your life. You are hungry for new experiences. Everyday stresses that may have frustrated you in the past now seem almost inconsequential, as your vision is lifted above the mundane. As such, your ability to manage stress and pressure increases. You are more tolerant in your attitude towards others, and you’re considerably more confident about expressing the playful, creative, and fun side to your personality.
From December to August is particularly strong for creative and romantic endeavors. There is a magical quality to your personal appeal as well as your creative works! This is a personally popular period. You have a dignified and perhaps mysterious manner, and your style stands out as unique. You can excel in the arts. From January to September 2018, you are especially magnetic, and you’re likely to make real progress in studies, communications, teaching, guiding, and connecting. This is a great time for picking up useful and profitable skills, publishing, and for gaining a following or audience.
This is a powerful thirteen-month period for improving your image and healing problems related to personal confidence, appearance, image, and creativity.
Potential negatives: Weight gain, pompous behavior, restlessness, over-confidence, wastefulness, and excesses in general. See to it that these things don’t ruin an otherwise excellent period. As well, in your desire to start over, watch that you don’t blind yourself to responsibilities.
There might also be times when others may feel threatened by your newfound displays of freedom and independence, when your personal desires are greater than your means, or when you have troubles with self-discipline, budgets, and limits.
Otherwise, this can be a time of opportunity. You might choose to pursue a new channel for self-expression or mental interest with great passion. There can be a strong sense of release and freedom from previously limiting, rigid, or stifling conditions.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar first house, from October 10th, 2017, to March 8th, 2017, and then from July 10th, 2018, to November 8th, 2018.
Jupiter and Scorpio:
Jupiter’s effects are to expand our experiences, our knowledge, and our understanding. Jupiter represents optimism, growth, generosity, and abundance.
Jupiter transiting through intense and passionate Scorpio urges us to go after our hearts’ desires. As Jupiter moves through Scorpio, we learn and understand that in order to heal, we have to cut out the fluff and focus on what really matters to us. Because Jupiter’s nature is extravagant, we must guard against “too much.” Moderation doesn’t come naturally to either Jupiter or Scorpio.
Scorpio is a Water sign. Water signs encompass feelings and emotions, and Jupiter in a Water sign teaches us to embrace our emotions – to understand them, go with our feelings, and express them on a social level. Jupiter in Scorpio encourages us to grow and expand emotionally, and because Scorpio is focused and deep, it encourages us to develop intimacy – with ourselves and with others.
Jupiter in Scorpio for Everyone:
Now that Jupiter is in Scorpio, we attract the most success and good fortune when we put our “all” into a project or undertaking, and when we use our magnetic powers to heal others.
Jupiter’s zeal can supersede moderation at times. It can expand the more negative qualities of a sign, just as it can expand the positive traits. Its zeal and enthusiasm are well-intended, but it can blind us to our immoderate behavior. In Scorpio, we can be obsessive. If it feels good, we just go for it.
However, the “higher” vibration of Jupiter looks for perspective. Jupiter’s perspective isn’t a detached, analytical, or detailed look at any given situation, but an overview–a look at the “big picture.” With Jupiter, ideally, we can rise above pettiness, mundane concerns, and inconveniences. Where Jupiter is currently transiting in your own chart is where you are inclined to find your “joy” at this stage in your development. This area of your life expands and improves in some manner. There is also a need for new tools to develop these areas of life. In order to develop, we need to pursue our goals with confidence and optimism, without going overboard.
During this Jupiter in Scorpio cycle, we particularly value decisiveness, intensity, willpower, commitment, and strength. We’re less focused on what’s fair or polite and more interested in getting to the bottom of a matter. Status and social standing are less important to us than personality and character.
Jupiter not only likes to expand, but it also loves to learn, so when Jupiter is paired with Scorpio, we may be more interested and enthusiastic about deeper studies and meanings as well as all that is taboo, hidden, or mysterious. Science and research may be prosperous avenues. There can be a stronger desire to solve problems and cut right to the chase. We can develop a larger interest in psychology and human resources. In the media, we may find there’s more interest in “badass” characters.
New avenues for connecting with others may open up, or we begin to see more opportunities for these things. People who have given up on finding a meaningful intimate relationship or partnership might now reconsider. Jupiter in Scorpio’s energies are adamant so that unhappy intimate unions are not going to be preferable than going it alone. Just as with Jupiter in Libra, relationships are not status quo during this Jupiter in Scorpio cycle. There can be a focus on gaining in some way through our relationships – of coming to a stronger position in a significant way. Combining resources can be a strong theme.
Energetically speaking, Jupiter and Scorpio are a bit of a mismatch. A major difference is that Jupiter looks outside of itself to expand, improve, and grow, while Scorpio’s inner landscape is of particular importance. We should certainly watch for overdoing, overstating, and excess in our relationships.
This is a fabulous period for looking at the darker corners of life — and of ourselves — from a new perspective or for purging, depending on what we find! It can also be a time for finding valuable resources that were hidden from our view or that we previously overlooked, as well as for awakening talents within ourselves and, perhaps especially, within others.
This can be a powerful time for healing, improving, and transforming. With Scorpio, there is transformation. We’re not interested in band-aid fixes, and we’re more willing than usual to enter into a crisis so that we can effect change. Middle of the road is no longer attractive to us at this time. Themes include sex, money, and power, as well as death and rebirth, and we can be particularly fascinated with these topics during Jupiter’s thirteen-month transit of Scorpio.
Jupiter in Scorpio: Career and BusinessFor greater success in your career or business, be committed, intense, perceptive, and passionate about what you do. In career, invest in your resourcefulness, particularly as you’re able to employ others’ talents and resources creatively and effectively. More focus on change, improvement, and passion in your promotional materials and products or services can be successful. Teaming up with a business partner whose talents and resources complement yours well can be beneficial.
Jupiter in Scorpio: Relationship and LoveFor greater success in love and relationship while Jupiter transits Scorpio, showcase your committed, passionate, magnetic, powerful, and sensual qualities. We tend to value intimacy more than usual during this transit. As with Jupiter in Libra, there can be more coupling and breakups during this period. Improvements to relationships now can involve some breaking down of existing structures and intensive work on self-improvement. We’re not impressed or patient with flakiness and care less about social or financial standing than we do character and integrity. This can be a time for embracing and exploring our sexuality and some adventurousness on intimate levels.
