Jupiter in Libra Horoscopes for each Sign
Jupiter’s effects are to expand our experiences, our knowledge, and our understanding. Jupiter represents optimism, growth, generosity, joy, and abundance. In Aries, Jupiter encouraged us to make our own opportunities, to believe in ourselves, and to take charge of our lives. In Taurus, Jupiter urged us to enjoy and appreciate what we already have and to adopt a patient approach to achieving our goals. In Gemini, Jupiter encouraged us to learn as much as we could about the people around us, as well as to share and connect. In Cancer, Jupiter motivated us to honor our intuition, emotions, families, and inner needs, and to build our support systems. In Leo, Jupiter encouraged us to express ourselves confidently, to be generous and creative, and to find new ways to enjoy ourselves. In Virgo, Jupiter motivated us to take pride in our health, work, services, and routines.
In Libra, Jupiter expands our awareness of our partnerships, the need to slip into the shoes of another, and our diplomacy skills. Jupiter in Libra encourages togetherness, equality, compromise, fairness, partnership, peace, harmony, and diplomacy.
Libra is an Air sign. With an Air sign Jupiter, we are mentally adventurous, ready and willing to learn, into “mind expansion”, and less attached to our values because we are quite impartial and open-minded. We can see many sides to an argument.
More specifically with Jupiter in Libra, we attract the best fortune when we are fair-minded, treat others as equals, are compromising without being “doormats”, are gracious, and use our talents for promoting and mediating. The arts, architecture, law, math, mediating, and politics are possible avenues for increased success. There can be heightened use of charm and grace to reach goals. Our social skills contribute to our sense of fulfillment and attract success.
During this Jupiter in Libra cycle, we particularly value people and relationships, and might succeed best in partnership. Relating as equals is important to us now. We see opportunities to grow and succeed through negotiating, compromising, partnering, teaming up, and counseling. We value diplomacy, balance, fairness, tact, cooperation, and graciousness. We are especially invested in treating one another as equals, being fair, balancing things out, and honoring contracts, whether these are legal or social.
Jupiter not only likes to expand, it loves to learn, so when Jupiter is paired with Libra, we may be more interested in learningabout relationships, legal matters, social skills, psychology, beauty, and social justice topics.
There can be a stronger desire to be cooperative, and joy derived from getting along successfully with others. We can develop a larger interest in psychology, counseling, advertising, marketing, graphic design, architecture, beauty, fashion, jewelry, arbitration, mediation, and human resources.
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 one-to-one relationship or partnership might now reconsider. While it may seem logical to assume that Jupiter in Libra promotes couples and new love, this is not always the case. It does, however, support activities that lead to improved relationships, and this can most certainly lead to more counseling and possible breakups. Jupiter in Libra’s energies are aggressively fair so that unhappy, unbalanced unions are not going to be preferable than going it alone. The bottom line is that relationships are far from status quo during this Jupiter in Libra cycle. There can be more breakups, reconciliations, and new pairings as we place more importance in fair and equal relating. There can be a focus on gaining in some way through our relationships – of coming to a stronger position in a significant way.
Jupiter’s zeal can supersede moderation at times. It can expand the negative qualities of a sign, just as it can expand the positive traits. Its zeal and enthusiasm are often well-intentioned, but can blind us to our immoderate behavior. In Libra, we may focus too much on people pleasing, the idea of having a relationship instead of true needs and the people involved, or superficial connections, and not enough attention to the quality of our attachments. We may be excessively vain and concerned about what others think, and we might suffer from inattention to our own needs for independence and autonomy.
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 expand, we need to pursue our goals with confidence and optimism, without going overboard.
Jupiter pairs rather well with Libra energetically speaking. A major difference, however, is that Libra strives towards moderation and balance, while Jupiter tends to push for expansion and can be decidedly immoderate. We should certainly watch for overdoing, overstating, and excess in our relationships which can challenge the very balance that we seek.
Aspects Jupiter Forms while transiting the sign of Libra.
Jupiter quincunx Neptune on October 23rd, 2016, at 9 Libra 27 (first), will occur again on May 17th, 2017, at 14 Libra 01 (second), and July 4th, 2017, at 14 Libra 11 (final)
Jupiter square Pluto on November 24th, 2016, at 15 Libra 47 (first), will occur again on March 30th, 2017, at 19 Libra 17 (second), and August 4th, 2017, at 17 Libra 32 (final)
Jupiter opposition Uranus on December 26th, 2016, at 20 Libra 34 (first), will occur again on March 2nd, 2017, at 22 Libra 11 (second), and then again on September 27th, 2017, at 27 Libra 15 (final)
Jupiter quincunx Chiron on December 31st, 2016, at 21 Libra 05 (first), will occur again on February 14th, 2017, at 23 Libra 02 (second), and September 23rd, 2017, at 26 Libra 22 (final)
Jupiter sextile Saturn on August 27th at 21 Libra 11 (first/last).
Jupiter sesquiquadrate Neptune on September 27th, 2017, at 27 Libra 15 (first/last)
The aspects above are aspects Jupiter makes while in the sign of Libra. Jupiter’s major aspects during its transit of Libra are mostly challenging. During Jupiter’s quincunx to Neptune from October 2016 to July 2017, routine seems to be particularly unsatisfying. This is a time when we easily take a detour from a practical path. It can also be a time when we may be disillusioned by something (or someone). Spiritual inspiration is a potential, however, but we need to make real efforts to incorporate our spiritual and romantic needs, as well as compassion, into our goals and relationships. Jupiter also forms a quincunx with Chiron in Pisces, pulling up similar themes. We should be especially alert to the possibility that we may be tempted to go against our beliefs in order to please someone – this, of course, should be avoided as much as possible. It could lead to a gigantic “what was I thinking?!” moment down the line.
However, the biggest challenges, and also rewards, are likely to emerge through Jupiter’s opposition to Uranus and square to Pluto. While these are difficult aspects, they are necessary and welcome, as we need to come to some form of balance. In an overview sense, this can pull relationships into the picture, helping to balance out theexcessive self-seeking energy, we’ve been dealing with in recent years. This is likely to be a struggle, but we’ll be seeing more and more cries for etiquette, graciousness, peacefulness, tact, fairness, and social justice.
We’ll also be wanting to see more people getting along, particularly those who we don’t typically see united. We may be growing fed up with persistent attention to ambitions and the self, and begin moving away from personal and professional agendas towards more consideration of others and attention to relationships.
Jupiter’s one major aspect that’s flowing during its transit of Libra is a quick-pass transit, unfortunately, but it comes in August 2017 towards the end of the transit, helping to crystallize and lock down lessons learned and endeavors begun during the course of the transit.
Excellent times for the Jupiter in Libra transit include when Jupiter is in mutual reception with Venus, ruler of Libra, and when Jupiter forms easy aspects to other bodies. Opportunities associated with these periods may not be as obvious as those arising from challenges, but they’re there for those looking for them. These happen:
While Venus is in Sagittarius from October 18th to November 11th, 2016, (Jupiter is direct and in mutual reception with Venus, suggesting both bodies are in especially good form),
and while Venus is in Pisces from January 3rd to February 3rd, 2017, also while Jupiter is direct and in mutual reception with Venus (Jupiter is a co-ruler of Pisces).
In the second half of August 2017, when a Jupiter-Saturn sextile is in effect and helps to consolidate and crystallize things.
Other Jupiter boost dates of interest:
Jupiter in Libra is biquintile Neptune on November 21st, 2016, April 2nd, 2017, and August 16th, 2017.
Jupiter in Libra is quintile Saturn on May 3rd, 2017, and June 5th, 2017.
Jupiter in Libra is parallel Neptune (in Pisces) on August 31st, 2017.
Jupiter in Libra is sextile True Moon’s Node on September 11th, 2017, at 23 Libra 59.
Jupiter in Libra (September 2016 to October 2017) and Business/Career For greater success in your career or business, be gracious, polite, fair, and well-balanced in your professional dealings. Use your people skills and highlight or showcase your consideration of others’ needs. In career, invest in your ability to assist, counsel, and compromise. More focus on people, peace, harmony, beauty, relationships, and fairness in your promotional materials and products or services can be successful. Teaming up with a business partner can be beneficial. Word of mouth will be even more vital to success than it has been, including social media popularity.
Jupiter in Libra (September 2016 to October 2017) and Relationships/Love For greater success in love and relationship while Jupiter transits Libra, showcase your polite, tactful, gracious, and compromising qualities. We tend to value the couple during this transit. We’re likely to rally for people to get together and get along who are traditionally considered opposites or who, in the past, weren’t accepted or favored as equals, friends, lovers, or partners. There can be more coupling and breakups during this period. People who have given up on the idea of the couple may reconsider now, perhaps as those things that were holding them back, such as fear of commitment, self-image problems, or lack of faith, are now dropping away. The traditional couple is not necessarily the goal now. There can be new commitments to finding cohorts, “partners in crime,” bosom buddies, and alliances of unlikely parties.
As mentioned above, this is not a period for fairy-tale romances for most, although it may very well be for some if the work has already been done. For most, it’s a time that’s ripe for opportunities to improve our relationships or our companionability, and this can involve some breaking down of existing structures and intensive work on self-improvement. This sounds more Plutonian than Jupiterian, but the difference is that with Jupiter involved, we’re doing these things because we are building our faith and confidence in others and in our own abilities to harmonize with others. We have to watch for making only cosmetic changes to a relationship on the shadow side of the Jupiter in Libra energy. Being in love with love instead of a person can be another problem.
Jupiter spends over a year in Libra. The last time Jupiter transited Libra was from September 2004 to October 2005. 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. Before that period, Jupiter was in Libra from October 1992 to November 1993, and from October 1980 to November 1981.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar seventh house, Aries, lasting from September 2016 to October 2017. During this cycle, you may enjoy benefits through marriage, serious partnerships, common-law partnerships, business partnerships, negotiations, and/or contractual agreements. This is a year in which you are more likely to establish a significant partnership, dissolve a difficult pairing, or enhance an existing relationship. It’s one of the better transits under which to get married or to enter a one-on-one, equal partnership. You can negotiate more successfully than usual, and you are more likely to win in legal matters or other forms of official negotiations if applicable.
Jupiter rules your sector of education, higher learning, travel, promotion, and publishing. Any of these things can be tied with partnerships during this period. A romantic or business partnership could form through connections you make through travel, the pursuit of an education, or with someone from a different culture than yours, or an existing partnership can strengthen through sharing of personal belief systems or travels. Teaching and counseling can figure strongly in your life this year.
This can also be a time when shared beliefs, interests, and ideologies are a focal point in a close relationship. For some, a significant person comes into your life with common educational goals or belief systems, possibly through long-distance connections, schools, or publishing/online activities. August 2017 is vibrant for these themes as Jupiter forms a sextile with Saturn. Many of you are attracting people who want to help, who are on your side, and who take a keen interest in you.
For some, you may be attracting partners who are more concerned with freedom than with pairing, or who seem to be quite extravagant or full of themselves. There could be troubles associated with an existing partner’s extravagance or demand for freedom, and you might feel this quite heavily while Jupiter squares Pluto and opposes Uranus. There can be issues related to work and professional goals, as you can be putting a lot of energy into relationships but also feel tremendous pressure to work and pursue career goals and fill responsibilities. You’ll get a chance to work through conflicts of interests and overload now.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy an improved social life during this cycle. You learn a lot through your experiences and interactions with an important “other.” Late September and the first half of October 2016 is an especially good period for taking advantage of the benefits of this influence. Alliances might be made, and partnering matters run smoothly.
Financial benefits may come through partnerships, although next year’s Jupiter transit is more lucrative in this way. Substantial payments and rewards for services and work done in the past can be received now. Business partnerships may form that have mutual benefits. Generally speaking, this is a time for benefits, material or otherwise, through partnering.
For those of you who have a partner, you are likely to find more joy in close relationships due to a more appreciative and tolerant attitude towards others and partnering in general. It’s especially important to be fair with one another and to share your ideas and ideals. Legal matters or challenging relationship problems from the past might more easily be resolved now, and even casual disputes are likely to be settled during this cycle. This transit can pull up some muck, but working through it can be extremely rewarding. The need for freedom in your social relationships is strong with this influence, however, and if it is not forthcoming, you could feel caged in and restless.
With Uranus in your sign for several years, there has been a lot of focus on your independence and the development of the self. Jupiter comes along now and reminds you that balance is necessary. Some Aries have given up on partnership but now may be reconsidering. If there is a change of heart about your relationship status, this is a good transit for making improvements that help welcome the desired new status.
You may find yourself taking on the role of consultant or advisor, or you could benefit from help from same. Some Aries will develop wonderful rapport with a good friend or counselor now.
Good publicity may come your way. If your work involves the public, you can safely expect increased popularity now, or you might receive good reviews, feedback, or word-of-mouth opportunities. Relationships and partnerships benefit from expansive, warm energy, or successful new ones begin and develop this year.
These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. Also, although Jupiter is considered a positive and happy energy, close relationships could end this cycle. Often, if they do, it’s to move on to a happier, healthier, more tolerant relationship. However, it’s very important to watch for a “grass is greener” attitude and avoid throwing out something that may only need some fixing. “Fixing” relationships, in fact, is favored now. A warm, open, and honest approach to others wins you positive new relationships or enhances existing ones.
You might fall victim to wasting opportunities, time, or resources with transiting Jupiter opposing your natal Sun. This transit is mainly a “feel-good” transit, however, and you are likely to be feeling quite powerful and optimistic. The problem with the transit, for some, is that you might over-reach as a result of these inflated feelings of importance.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar seventh house, from September 9th, 2016, to February 6th, 2017, and then from June 9th to October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar sixth house, Taurus. From September 2016 to October 2017, you experience a boost to your work and health endeavors. The desire or need to expand a work project can be in focus now. This transit enhances your ability to handle the details required to do a good job, and others become more aware of your skills. Benefits may come through work itself, co-workers, or employees during this cycle. Any service that you may provide is likely to go well now, mainly because you are finding more joy in being of service. You are more successful in hiring good workers, if applicable, and improvements to your working environment are likely. You find more enjoyment in the work you do, and it is easier than usual to find employment now. You may get a new job during this cycle. Work tends to be very available to you – perhaps even too available if you have multiple options and have trouble deciding which to choose. As well, you may be taking on too much work due to overoptimism or misjudging your time and energy limits.
The best way to benefit from and manage this transit is to take pride in and recognize your usefulness – this is bound to give you lots of joy, and you are likely to be rewarded as a result.
As well, the more integrity, directness, and honesty you bring to your services and work, the more positive “payback” you will receive. Health is likely to prosper now, and medical procedures or programs, if necessary, are more apt to be successful. There may be an inclination to put on some weight, however, if you don’t watch your appetite and/or choice of food. Some people get a new pet during this cycle, and this brings them much joy.
There is a tendency now to focus on the details of your work, and you might sometimes feel a little overwhelmed with monotonous tasks. This can be a time for transforming your working life and when you put a tremendous amount of effort into your work or daily routines. Your work might involve more services or the assisting of others during this cycle, and for some, health-related or healing professions can be attractive at this time.
Overload or the magnification of problems surrounding work can be experienced during this cycle. These challenges are most likely to occur when Jupiter opposes Uranus and forms a square with Pluto (dates above). You might experience vague health issues, the need for time away from your duties either to take care of yourself or of others requiring care, or the consequences of taking on so much that you have trouble taking time for yourself or vacationing and learning.
However, for the most part, this is a good time for gaining recognition and an appreciation for what you do or for your skills, for finding work, and for working relationships.
These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. Sometimes Jupiter brings too much of something, and this could mean taking on more work than you can handle, getting lost in the details and organization necessary to keep your daily life running smoothly, and so forth. Watch that overconfidence doesn’t lead you to overload your plate. Remember that more of something is not necessarily better. As well, you may need to draw some boundaries with others. While you can enjoy helping people at this time, you may be leaned upon too much and too often.
Because Jupiter rules your solar eighth house and it’s now transiting your solar sixth house, your work can involve more research, effort, study, and analysis. You may be managing others or their resources now. You may be bringing change to your work and establishing better daily routines and habits. Working relationships can benefit you. These themes are strongest in August 2017.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar sixth house, from September 9th, 2016, to February 6th, 2017, and then from June 9th to October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar fifth house, Gemini. From August 2015 to September 2016, you are likely to see benefits, and experience growth, in the areas of romance, pleasure, creative expression, hobbies, entertainment, and children. Your fair share of fun, love, and good times are in store.
Your willingness to enjoy yourself and explore your creativity now brings new opportunities, or you might find that avenues open up to you for exploring new ways of having fun. For example, you might meet a new friend who spurs you to go out more, or you could be inspired by someone else’s creative projects and begin a new and rewarding hobby. Creative projects are likely to fare well during this cycle, and could even bring some recognition or reward.
Romantic opportunities tend to abound during this cycle; or chances to kick back and have fun, express yourself, and pursue hobbies and entertainment. Creatively speaking, you can be filled with ideas and plans for realizing a dream.
Love and romance may come into your life, or an existing romance is enhanced with good humor and warmth. You might find that possibilities for casual love relationships open up to you now, and some of you could be overwhelmed with choices! Social engagements abound. For single Geminis, meeting a special person is likely, although it’s more liable to be a casual relationship than a committed partnership. Even so, while this position is associated with casual dating, because Jupiter rules your partnership sector, there is a tendency to “go steady” or get close to one particular person at this time. You may be seeking more playfulness in a committed relationship during this period.
Investments in stocks and other speculative matters could earn profits. Healthy, wise risks are likely to pay off, but be careful of overconfidence with risky investments.
Relationships with your children may be especially fulfilling now. Pregnancy or childbirth may occur during this period, if applicable. This is a fabulous time in which to take a vacation you’ve always wanted to make, to try out a new hobby or creative project/approach, to explore new ways of having fun, to enjoy single life, and so forth.
Those with artistic or athletic talent can be especially successful and prosperous at this time. Your creativity and social life are stimulated this year, and plenty of opportunities to express yourself uniquely and creatively are likely to present themselves. You may find great joy and reward in your creative projects and hobbies. Pleasure-seeking activities, recreation, and amusement increase. You are far less inhibited when it comes to expressing yourself creatively, and you are a lot more fun to be around!
This is a cycle for expressing yourself in freeing, rewarding ways. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and more willing to take some personal risks to do so. This can be a fertile time on many levels, physically and emotionally. Too much emphasis on having fun to the detriment of other areas of life, including friendships, is more likely to occur while Jupiter opposes Uranus and forms a square with Pluto (dates above). This can also be a time when the appeal of gambling or other forms of risks can be strong. There may be problems defining relationships regarding their level of commitment during this period, and you may be wrestling with your feelings about someone. Watch also for indiscriminately lending to friends during this period, as well as recreational escapism that goes too far.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel supported and confident during this approximately year-long cycle. Stronger times for all of these matters occur from the last week of September to mid-October, when creative expression is strong, particularly related to writing, and when matters of the heart can be fortunate. August 2017 is particularly good for benefits from your relationships.
These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. Sometimes Jupiter brings too much of a good thing, and it’s always wise to enjoy a carefree (not careless) attitude.
This transit also means that Jupiter is trine your Sun or Ascendant at least part of the year – a feel-good transit that offers you opportunities to rise above petty concerns and to achieve a more balanced approach to your life. Relationships with others tend to be easygoing, friendly, and positive. It’s natural for you to cooperate with others, and others find it easy to cooperate with you! This is a time when you really enjoy life, appreciating the good things and rarely harping on the more inconvenient or annoying elements of life.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fifth house, from September 9th, 2016, to February 6th, 2017, and then from June 9th to October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar fourth house, Cancer. From From September 2016 to October 2017, you are likely to see benefits to home, family, property, and domestic comfort matters. Much joy and pleasure can be found in your family connections and experiences and/or your home life during this cycle, although there may be some initial magnification of problem areas that helps get the ball rolling towards positive change.
An increased sense of security and safety may be derived from your domestic life. Improvements to your home life, family, and basic psychological foundation are in focus. You might find that inner and personal experiences are more important to you than more worldly ones during this cycle. The expansive nature of Jupiter can sometimes be literal or physical, so that for some of you, there can be a larger home or additions to the family unit or physical home.
Opportunities to buy or sell real estate for financial gain may present themselves. Home improvements and renovations are favored, as is moving to a new dwelling (more spacious or larger homes are likely now). Some of you may buy or sell a house, and others may welcome a new addition to the family. You may move to a larger or more comfortable home; or you might enhance your existing home in such a way that makes you feel happier, perhaps by de-cluttering your living space.
Living arrangements may improve, perhaps due to better relationships with family or roommates. Jupiter in Libra’s energy points to benefits through diplomacy, word of mouth, knowing the right people, and relationships, in general.
Long-standing family problems may be ironed out. Relationships with parents and other family members could improve. You may find particular enjoyment through getting in touch with, or researching, your roots or family traditions. There could be a family reunion, vacation, or another event that gives you a stronger sense of connection to your family. Family may help you financially, or inheritance is possible for some of you. You take more pleasure in nurturing others. A stronger sense of psychological well-being may come now, and you might temporarily have less interest in more worldly ambitions and activities.
Entertaining in the home can be emphasized, if that is something that makes you happy. Otherwise, you can experience a stronger sense of peace and privacy in your home life. On a more psychological level, confidence in yourself and feelings of security increase during this period.
Because Jupiter is the natural ruler of your solar sixth house of work and services, some of you could be working from home, or your job can be related to home and domestic affairs.
Do be careful about overextending yourself with home improvements, or acquiring larger accommodations that are beyond your means. Your personal life tends to overshadow your professional life or material activities during this cycle. Watch that you aren’t avoiding responsibilities or clinging too much to the familiar to the detriment of other life departments. Relationships with family can improve significantly now, although pre-existing problems might be magnified initially.
Watch also for unwillingness to expand your horizons. Avoiding or escaping responsibilities is a stronger potential when Jupiter opposes Uranus and forms a square with Pluto (dates above). Uncertainty in your career or lack of definition of your life plan and lack of direction can be a struggle and can impact your feelings of security and family life. There can be a conflict between partnership and family life. You may be wanting to please too many people, and overdoing leaves you exhausted, as it seems there is never enough time and energy to meet all your needs. However, from late September to mid-October, stronger power is available for enjoying the most positive effects of this transit. There may be increased resources available to you for improving your home life. Organizing your home can be in focus in August 2017 with nice long-term effects.
For the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. This is a time of nest-feathering. It’s a strong time for psychotherapy and purging as you are willing to look at the root of problems. It’s a good time for long-term financial planning and strengthening your financial picture through some form of pooling of resources. There can be more power and resources available to you to establish yourself, in particular through a home or property, but also for long-term business endeavors.
These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. This is an excellent time generally speaking to begin a new venture that you’d like to be long-term and prosperous. Focus now is on your foundations and building your inner world so that you feel secure.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fourth house, from September 9th, 2016, to February 6th, 2017, and then from June 9th to October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar third house, dear Leo. From September 2016 to October 2017, educational and communication opportunities are likely to present themselves. You may increase your knowledge and skills set, and find much enjoyment in so doing.
During this long-term trend, neighbors or relatives could be especially helpful in your life. You express your ideas with more enthusiasm and positivity, and they are received well. Your reasoning skills are sharper than usual, so take advantage! You are able to comprehend more complicated subjects and problems, and you are able to explain them in such a way that others can readily understand; thus, teaching, authoring, or otherwise delivering information may be prosperous now. Higher level studies, courses, and perhaps some travel opportunities might arise during this cycle. Many of you will benefit from taking courses if you aren’t already doing so, and those already involved in studies will benefit more than usual during this period.
If you’ve been spending too much time on the road or out to work, then this period can help you to balance things out a little. A relationship may be a driving force behind spending more time locally or taking care of daily affairs.
You may decide to buy a new car, or transportation opportunities present themselves, making it much easier for you to get from point A to point B. Gifts, benefits, or other opportunities may come through visits, short trips, messages, emails, or they could come through contacts with siblings, classmates, and neighbors. Some sort of positive news or announcement is likely to be part of the picture at this time. When Jupiter is challenged, however, you may want to watch for speaking too soon or misrepresentation.
If you’re an author, teacher, or hold another position in communications, you will find more opportunities to advance your trade as your creative juices flow nicely. If you’re a student, school is especially favored. If you’re in business, you are likely to find sales are especially strong. In general, you find much joy in communicating, learning, and socializing. These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.
With Jupiter, always keep in mind that while opportunities present themselves that have a positive influence in your life, Jupiter expands and magnifies all that it touches, so that if you are having difficulties in these areas of life, these problems may be magnified before they can be dealt with. So, for example, if you have difficulties with a sibling relationship (one of the things ruled by the solar third house), this might be magnified now and this way you can better deal with it and solve the problem. Taking on too many daily activities, communications, new interests, and learning endeavors or studies can be a problem now. Don’t overload your plate. The most excessive tendencies of this transit are more likely to be experienced while Jupiter opposes Uranus and forms a square with Pluto (dates are above). When Jupiter is challenged, you may be a little more accident-prone, you might procrastinate or exaggerate. You might also take on so much that you don’t know where to begin, or so that you learn a lot about many things but not enough about any one particular subject. There can be a real tendency to want to do it all, forgetting your limits in terms of time and energy.Taking on too many projects or becoming too entrenched in details can also interfere with higher learning pursuits or travels. You could experience some feelings of disillusionment with, or interruptions of, current studies or belief systems.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy more opportunities through your communications and contact with others during this cycle. You could feel especially motivated to pursue your personal interests and to connect with friends, particularly from late September to mid-October. This is a good time for sharing your ideas, writing, pursuing a cause, and joining a cause. Your ability and desire to express yourself is greater now, and your personal interests grow. You are more perceptive, and others are more receptive to your ideas. New opportunities to communicate can open up to you. There can be an especially strong mental connection with a lover or child during this period, and a more creative approach to communicating.
Your thinking is more upbeat, positive, and forward-looking, and so is the way you express yourself. In fact, this is an excellent time for improving your communication skills and your general attitude or mindset. There can be important opportunities through meetings, courses, teaching, and connections made in the neighborhood or through siblings. You could be finding that transportation options now available make life a little more enjoyable. You can be teaching others in creative ways now. There can be more communication, movement, teaching, learning, writing, and errands in your job and daily routines. Some may work with a relative.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar third house, from September 9th, 2016, to February 6th, 2017, and then from June 9th to October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar second house, Virgo. From From September 2016 to October 2017, you are likely to see and enjoy benefits to your earning power and value system. Jupiter in this part of your chart could very well bring a profitable and productive period. You are likely to feel more confident and enthusiastic about your ability to earn a living, and this can help you to attract more income, as long as you are realistic. Always with Jupiter, it’s important to avoid overreaching. Stretching your usual limits is encouraged, but going too far is not.
You might decide to develop your talents during this Jupiter cycle, which in turn boosts your earning power. Your income might increase, and there may be an opportunity to improve your future financial situation. However, you could be just as inclined to splurge on yourself, opting to plump up your nest or your store of personal possessions in order to feel more secure.
Money problems from the past may clear up during this period if you use it appropriately – developing budgets and working out ways to better manage your resources. You may be adding to your possessions, and you might receive a large item or gift, or a major purchase or sale might occur now. A significant gift or bonus may come your way. This is a good time to work with financial institutions, shoot for a raise, or apply for a loan. You may need to curb an inclination to overspend – feeling good could bring you to the stores as you temporarily forget about the future!
Your desire for security and comfort is hearty now, and you’ll pursue these things with more confidence and verve. You feel that you deserve more!
It’s a time for building what you have or what you’ve started and enjoying the process. This is a strong time for buying long-term valuables. You are likely to make bigger decisions about your material resources during this period.
This cycle that will be in influence until October 2017 is strong for attracting more money from your professional endeavors and for expanding a business. You should certainly watch for overspending.
Be on the alert for an attitude towards money that is careless. If you are accumulating personal possessions too quickly, this can lead to clutter and disorganization. If you’re overconfident about your ability to make money, then you might take foolish risks, such as borrowing from your future, and this tendency can be especially strong when Jupiter opposes Uranus and forms a square with Pluto (dates above). There can be a conflict over someone else’s resources or money, issues with others squandering your resources, or a frustrating clash of values. Watch for over-indulgence. Be extra careful if lending or borrowing.
Otherwise, this is a good period for bringing a fresh, positive, and confident attitude towards your own self-worth and value, and to your practical affairs, including work. This can be a powerful time for enhancing your home – making it more comfortable, beautiful, and livable. You may be buying more for your home and family, and you could be investing more time, money, and energy into improving your domestic life.
The positive circumstances listed here won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar second house, from September 9th, 2016, to February 6th, 2017, and then from June 9th to October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar first house, Libra. This exciting transit of your sign lasts from September 2016 to October 2017 and only occurs every twelve years or so. This transit brings improvements to your immediate environment and self-confidence. Your personality is more obviously expansive, exuberant, and enthusiastic. This transit heightens your optimism and generosity, and the entire cycle has the potential for being a relaxed, fortunate, and hopeful time in your life. Even so, if there are problem areas, they can be magnified at the beginning of the transit – getting problems out into the light can push you to deal with them.
You are greeting life with a fresh, can-do attitude. What happened in the past is not very important to you now – it’s the future you’re eyeing now. Events occur that help you to overcome problems that previously seemed challenging or even insurmountable – you have an altogether different perspective on life now, and you are less inclined to sweat the small stuff. Even so, Saturn transiting your solar third house concurrently does, in fact, require some extra attention to details, and worry may be part of that package, but Jupiter’s transit can help mitigate the tendency to fret and lighten your load.
You create a distinct first impression on others, and your likeability increases during this thirteen-month cycle. People thoroughly enjoy being around you, not because of what you do, but because of who you are. Furthering your personal ambitions and interests comes more easily during this cycle. At times, you may feel like the sky is the limit! You might need to guard against becoming too full of yourself or overly self-interested, however. There is also a risk of overindulgence and other forms of excessive behavior or extravagance. Jupiter can bring endings into your life in order for you to grow, although these are generally easy ones, or they feel easier than they would at other times. A carefree attitude is different than a careless one, and the fine line between the two is definitely something to consider.
Interestingly, Jupiter’s transit of Libra is helping people, in general, to focus less on themselves and more on getting along. The world needs a healthy dose of Libran energy! For you, however, you’ve been catering a little too much to others’ needs and dealing with unreliability and selfishness in others, and now you are in the position to push your own interests and agenda.
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 until October 2017. 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 August 2015 to September 2016, this 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 you pursue it 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 communications, connections, and learning. Jupiter is the natural ruler of the communications sector in your solar chart – a sector that also rules your neighborhood, transportation, schools, and siblings. This comes at the same time as a Saturn transit to this sector, so that there may be some restrictions or buckling down involved with these areas of life as well. There is good energy for bringing more structure and simplicity to the ways you connect with others, learn new things, and get around town. This influence can help you to actualize some of your dreams.
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). Now you can put some of your personal interests on the front burner.
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 lifts 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.
Late September and the first half of October is strong for a more empowered feeling in general and good relations, particularly with friends. November can bring creative work to the table.
Watch for excessiveness and wastefulness – try to 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, especially when Jupiter opposes Uranus and forms a square with Pluto (dates are above) when others may feel threatened by your newfound displays of freedom and independence. As well, your personal desires may conflict with home and family matters, or you could 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 profound sense of release and freedom from previously limiting, rigid, or stifling conditions. This can be an especially communicative time when you’re more engaged than usual.
It’s an excellent time to start new long-term projects. You might find that you feel more vital, confident, and optimistic about the future at this stage. It’s a good time to resolve conflicts. Situations that have been stunting your growth or progress can be put behind you. Events may give your ego a boost, and you could be feeling quite vital and alive. Take advantage of this by promoting yourself or putting yourself “out there.” Ego gratification is a theme of this transit. This is the start of a “new you” – a more confident and faithful person. Invest in your personality.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar first house, from September 9th, 2016, to February 6th, 2017, and then from June 9th to October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar twelfth house, Scorpio. From From September 2016 to October 2017, you may enjoy benefits through activities that take place “behind the scenes” or otherwise privately, as well as in the soul. This is a cycle in which you become more compassionate, empathetic, and sensitive, or get in deeper touch with these traits.
Jupiter in the twelfth house is said to offer people spiritual protection. There can be serendipitous events occurring now. This is a time when you can rid yourself of self-destructive tendencies, deep-seated fears, and deeply-ingrained tendencies towards guilty feelings. You are more able to get in touch with your subconscious mind, and in fact, confronting your fears can be quite pleasurable during this period.
Charity, giving/donating anonymously, volunteering, and helping others without expectation of reward will be most fulfilling during this cycle. Helping others actually helps you. Work that involves serving others may begin now and bring you much joy.
Your dreaming world may be especially rich, lighter, helpful, and more intuitive. Meditation and retreats can be particularly useful to you now, as they regenerate and invigorate your spirit. Much pleasure and growth might be found in solitude and contemplation. You can develop or expand your interest in New Age studies, spirituality, dream interpretation, or research during this cycle. Some people enter into a private romance or friendship. In general, help seems to be there when you need it. You are building or rebuilding your inner faith now.
These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.
Jupiter’s influence is generally considered positive, and it is, ultimately. However, it doesn’t always feel lucky as it acts to magnify the area of the chart that it affects, which ca be uncomfortable if you are having difficulties in this area of life. In your case, if you are lonely or if you feel helpless, and if you have troubles facing your past, then this influence can heighten these issues. Ultimately, it’s for the good. The cosmos asks you now to surrender some of your attachments and to surrender to the unknown. Releasing control is necessary. Building your faith is the work you are doing now. While your tendency is to play a supportive role to others, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries when it comes to your energy and time. You may need to draw the line within yourself between healthy retreat and escapism.
This is a warm, protective cycle, although with Jupiter in the background in your chart, there may be some sense that you are not truly living or experiencing your life to the fullest.
When Jupiter opposes Uranus and forms a square with Pluto (dates are above) in particular, there can be some strains on health or difficulties keeping up with daily schedules.
There is stronger joy in being of service to others, but do be careful that you take care of yourself as well.
Your spiritual world, compassion, private life, and tolerance expand and grow. Matters from the past are magnified in your life now. You tend to sort through the attitudes that serve you well, and the behaviors that need to go in order for you to grow and improve. With the ruler of your resources sector in the sector of your chart that rules private matters, anonymity, healing, and endings, you can be strongly attracted to alternative healing methods for both mind and body. You may be exploring counseling, spiritual, or psychic talents. There could be a source of income related to healing, counseling, or spiritual guidance. For some of you, there can be work on a business or money-making project in relative solitude or privacy. This may be a good period for volunteer work, or for work done behind the scenes, in private, or in the helping professions.
Late September and the first half of October are good for creativity and enjoyment, particularly of alone time and perhaps a private relationship or attraction.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar twelfth house, from September 9th, 2016, to February 6th, 2017, and then from June 9th to October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growthand expansion in your solar eleventh house, Sagittarius. From September 2016 to October 2017, this transit brings benefits and fresh energy to networking activities, the formulation of broad, long-term goals, acquaintances, clubs, and organizations in your life. You can rely on your friends for their help and support, and your circle of friends could most certainly increase during this fruitful transit. Your connections to others, group associations, and friendships expand and grow.
This is a time for feeling considerably more confident about the future, and about your ability to set plans in motion that will allow you to accomplish some of your most cherished hopes and dreams.
It’s a time when you are filled with ideas about the future. You are planting seeds, so to speak, aiming to get started on projects that will reap rewards in the future. While this can be exciting, try not to take on more than you can handle. Your vision is quite optimistic, and you might over-estimate what you are capable of doing down the road! However, one or two projects can be inspiring and also quite innovative.
With more contact with others, whether it’s about an expanded in-person group of connections or online, you are sure to come up with new ideas and to be inspired. Others can point you in new directions. There can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically. A new communications project can excite you and bring you into contact with interesting, helpful people. Business income should increase.
This can be a time of budding friendships and/or group involvements. New people may come into your life and seek out your friendship, or existing friendships may be refreshed or enhanced. Opportunities to advance or for new learning experiences can come through associates, friendships, and networking.
These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. With Jupiter transits, we should always watch for overdoing things. In this case, over-emphasis on activities that take you away from your practical responsibilities, too often, may be a pitfall if you’re running on auto-pilot. There may be difficulties with a romantic partner or children who may be at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your friendships and causes, there can be challenges related to home and family, and problems funding your dreams and plans, particularly when Jupiter opposes Uranus and forms a square with Pluto (dates for these transits are above). Jupiter can bring too much of a good thing at times, and you might find that your social agenda is crammed or that you have taken on more friends or goals than you can reasonably handle.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your social life and friends base, and to dream up exciting new paths for the future. Some of you could be meeting a partner through a friend, partnering with a friend, or enjoying improved relations with a significant other, particularly from late September to mid-October.
Your long-term goals and wishes tend to be broad and perhaps unusual or ahead of the times during this cycle. Others especially value your advice and often turn to you for help. You could become more active with friends or in your community. You may have opportunities to join or lead clubs or groups. Group activities and associations could be avenues for fulfilling your own goals, and you may very effectively find your voice through them. You may take special joy in sharing a common cause or ideals with others. You are especially hopeful and more inclined to believe that if you wish it, it will be!
You might be more tolerant of others in general, and of differences in values. Reaching out beyond your personal circle can certainly open doors to you and bring joy into your life during this cycle. You might also expand your social circle through your business dealings. You may be putting more money, resources, or talents into a cause, team effort, or into a special goal for achieving a long-term dream or wish. There may be influential friends who help you to improve your income. A business may be attracting new customers or followers, possibly through networking efforts, and you could be developing or selling new products.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eleventh house, from September 9th, 2016, to February 6th, 2017, and then from June 9th to October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar tenth house, Capricorn. From September 2016 to October 2017, increased public recognition and professional success are very possible. Your personality, skills, and talents are recognized now like seldom before. Past hard work has its payoffs now, or at the very least, is now recognized.
With Jupiter at the top of your solar chart, this can be a time of achievement, career advancement, and success in business. Business-related travel or the reaching of a wider audience is possible during this cycle. Your worldly or public status may change for the better. There could be a promotion, new job opportunities, a diploma, an important award or culmination, or a marriage/union.
Your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation grow and develop. You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle. This can be a time of significant progress in the outer world, a fortunate change in status, and increased recognition.
There is an interesting connection going on with Saturn, your ruler, in Sagittarius, and Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, in the house of Saturn. Teaching or guiding may be connected with your career now. Your services or charity may come before the public eye. Some of you could be working on a project behind the scenes that is now ready to be shared. This cycle is an important one for manifestation, a healthy balance between optimism and practicality, and better time management.
You could find yourself in a position that truly suits you. You take great pride in the work you do. For some of you, more prestige or a higher social standing may be part of the picture now. You can be quite charismatic in a position of authority or responsibility. Advancement in achieving an important goal can occur now. Most importantly, you have more faith in your goals and aspirations during this period of your life.
This is a time when believing in yourself, your competency, and your ability to take the lead opens up opportunities to you.
These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. Although it’s a great period for expansion and recognition on a professional level, and you should take advantage of it, choose your projects carefully. Don’t take on more than you can handle. Jupiter is related to excess and waste.
Watch also for gossip or mishandling of information. Be wary of situations that could get blown out of proportion or misunderstood. There may be difficulties with a family member who may be at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your career or public life, particularly when Jupiter opposes Uranus and forms a square with Pluto (dates for these transits are above). Confusion or disorder in your home life, or possibly your own insecurities, can negatively impact your career or more worldly pursuits. Personal responsibilities and possibly self-restrictions can be challenging, affecting your growth in the outside world or career. A business or endeavor may need adjustments and some restructuring in order to meet the demands of reality.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life with a view to expand your reach. From late September to mid-October and in November 2016, as well as in August 2017 can be especially strong periods for practical matters, business, and financial improvement. You may be joining with people who further your career or personal interests, and through their support, faith in you, or wisdom, you are encouraged to reach your highest potential. Support comes from behind the scenes in August, and advancement is likely.
As well, if you’ve been focusing on your personal life to excess, this is a great time for bringing a better work-life balance to your world. Jupiter reminds you of your calling as well as the joys of responsibilities and achievement.
Authority figures or other influential people tend to look upon you favorably, see more potential in you, and readily help you along, so work it! Something might happen now, or circumstances are such, that your career (or professional interests, in general) expands, and you find more joy and pleasure from your work. You could enjoy more freedom, or possibly even responsibilities, in your career. However your career changes, it’s likely to suit your current needs or desires and leave you feeling enthusiastic.
Integrity, directness, and honesty will get you everywhere now. The more willing you are to put yourself in the limelight, the more positive the rewards–this is not the time to be a shrinking violet!
You might realize a major project or goal during this phase of your life. You have more faith in your ability to achieve and accomplish your goals, and some of you could take a lot of pleasure in organizing your life and setting goals for yourself. Major projects begun approximately six and twelve years ago can enjoy an increase or boost.
The work you do suits you now, or you begin to strive along a path towards a more suitable career, as you are bringing more of your authentic personality to your work or public life.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar tenth house, from September 9th, 2016, to February 6th, 2017, and then from June 9th to October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar ninth house, Aquarius. From September 2016 to October 2017, you may have opportunities to travel, study, go abroad, expand your horizons, and meet people of diverse and exciting backgrounds. You are more intellectually curious now, and academic pursuits can both benefit you and run exceptionally smoothly during this cycle.
Business dealings, particularly long-distance ones and those involving publicity and promotion, are likely to be profitable now. For some, a line of business is ending as you prepare for a new focus. Legal matters might also work in your favor, or long-standing legal problems might now be ironed out. Some of you will be seeking legal advice and find it especially helpful now, and others might consider doing so.
Your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure grow and expand at a rapid pace as Jupiter moves through your solar ninth house. You are feeling more courageous and spirited, and you sense that there is more “out there” for you to learn and take in.
This is a time in your life when you are less likely to sweat the small stuff. You see the broader perspective on life, and you feel supported so that more trivial inconveniences don’t stress you out quite as easily. Your positive outlook is notable during this cycle. Learn as much as you can now, in preparation for the next cycle beginning in October 2017 that puts your career on center stage. You’ll want to be prepared!
Your views on life itself in a broad sense are changing, growing, and maturing. Connections with faraway cultures, people, or a broader knowledge base can open up opportunities to grow personally. Teaching and sharing knowledge can be in strong focus. It’s a good time for publishing, writing, and media.
You might consider fine-tuning your talents and skills with higher education or experience during this cycle. New learning experiences as well as “life” experiences (travel, adventures, contacts with others of a vastly different culture than yours, and so forth) are likely to emerge. Over the course of the coming thirteen months, you might have the opportunity to reach a broader audience and share your ideas and projects with more people. You might choose to learn a new language or take on other interesting studies.
This can be a time when you make friends in faraway places or who have vastly different backgrounds or perspectives than you and who enrich your life during this empowering cycle, especially since Jupiter rules the friendship sector of your solar chart and is now in your solar ninth.
These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. When Jupiter opposes Uranus and forms a square with Pluto (dates above), you could be feeling some disillusionment with education or personal interests. There may be challenges keeping up with daily life due to interruptions and distractions. Watch for misrepresentation by being exceptionally clear in your communications. You are challenged to find a better balance. If you’ve been spending too much time engrossed in local activities and projects, you’re now encouraged to move outside of your usual bounds.
For the most part, however, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life. Late September to mid-October and in November can be active for connecting with others romantically or creatively. Some of you could meet a fun friend or a romantic interest through travel or other activity that involves breaking the routine. Publishing can be in focus. There can be funds available for your pursuits, and communications thrive.
This is a powerful time for learning, teaching, and sharing ideas. A more faithful attitude towards life, in general, is likely now – you tend to feel that everything will work out in the end. Authors might get published now, receive good reviews, or they could significantly expand their audience. Travel is entirely possible now, whether it’s business or personal. Educational and travel opportunities expand your horizons. Writing and studying flow more naturally – those of you who have been “stuck” in these areas can be in for a pleasant surprise as these pursuits open up, expand, and fulfill. This is also an excellent period for positive dealings with in-laws!
To some extent, the internet is ruled by the ninth house as it can provide a platform for the sharing of ideas and self-publishing. Some Aquarians will be pursuing or expanding related pursuits. Your views on life itself in a broad sense are changing, growing, and maturing.
With Jupiter in harmony with your sign, this is a feel-good period that offers you opportunities to rise above petty concerns and to achieve a more balanced approach to your life. Relationships with others tend to be easygoing, friendly, and positive. It’s natural for you to cooperate with others, and others find it easy to cooperate with you! This is a time when you enjoy life, appreciating the good things and rarely harping on the more inconvenient or annoying elements of life.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar ninth house, from September 9th, 2016, to February 6th, 2017, and then from June 9th to October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter entering Libra on September 9th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar eighth house, Pisces. From September 2016 to October 2017, you may see benefits in any of the areas ruled by the eighth house – joint finances, shared resources, loans, taxes, sexuality, intimacy, healing, personal transformation, research, investigation, and psychological matters. This is a time of increased psychological understanding, intimacy, and perhaps the accumulation of wealth if you manage your resources well. This is an excellent time to work on financial planning and strategy.
There is a wonderful new focus on your intimate world – a possible deepening of a relationship, or an increased understanding of your own inner workings. Your intimate life enlarges and expands, bringing you more joy and new discoveries. This influence is with you until October 2017, and it’s time to grab opportunities that help you to feel empowered and on top of your life. You’re exploring new levels of desires and layers of feeling. Conversations are deep and lead to discovery. Sexuality is rich.
These opportunities can be related to your social standing, reputation, or career since Jupiter rules these themes in your solar chart. You could be working particularly hard towards your ambitions, and your work might involve managing others’ resources and talents, depth research, counseling, or psychology. work towards an important goal. There may be a metamorphosis of sorts when it comes to your profession or career and life path goals this year. You may be seeking out more meaning and purpose. Your reputation may go through transformations.
From later September to mid-October is an especially strong period for intimacy and ridding yourself of addictions. Some opportunities can open up for you in November that allow for a little more creative and personal freedom.
The eighth house is about transformation, and Jupiter here points to important internal growth. You are more capable of helping friends and loved ones who are dealing with a crisis – you can be leaned upon. Your ability to understand and accept anything that is deep in meaning or significant is enhanced now, and you instinctively realize that the path to healing is to face your fears. Others tend to be more supportive of you as well. In-depth study or research is likely to go well. In some cases, a significant tax refund, inheritance, or other such benefits might arrive during this transit. Financial gains may come through a partnership, or there may be an increase in a spouse’s income. Sexual opportunities are likely to abound, or your focus on one partner becomes more expansive, warm, and intimate.
This could be a time of purging yourself of literal or psychic “junk”, as there is a sense that de-cluttering your life will be beneficial to your emotional well-being. Benefits can come through jointly held resources, loans, or taxes. These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to emerge all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.
Particularly when Jupiter opposes Uranus and forms a square to Pluto, as well as when Jupiter forms quincunxes to Neptune and Chiron in your sign, you are challenged to reach a better balance in your life. If you’ve been taking on too much responsibility when it comes to providing for yourself or others, now you might need to reach out for support or partner up and pool resources. You would be wise to avoid excesses that can negatively impact your personal income and watch for the accumulation of shared debt, however. While support is more available to you, moderation is also vital. It will be imperative to use caution when it comes to lending and borrowing, particularly with friends, and for investing too much into a cause or long-term project. As well, you may want to use some discretion when communicating about intimate matters.
This transit presents excellent opportunities for intimacy and ridding yourself of addictions. You could be especially interested in finding a deeper meaning to your life. Your financial picture can improve considerably, as you instinctively know what to cut out of your life to succeed. There can be eye-opening psychological discoveries that help you to liberate yourself from difficulties of the past or from attitudes that have been holding you back from moving forward.
