Jupiter’s Transit through Virgo from August 2015 to September 2016
What Jupiter’s transit through Virgo means to you…
Jupiter enters Virgo on August 11th, 2015, and stays in this Mutable Earth sign until September 9th, 2016. See how this transit affects each zodiac sign below.
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.
Virgo is an Earth sign. With an Earth sign Jupiter, we are practical realists who need to visualize results in order to feel motivated to achieve them. We are “doers” who are not easily lured by get rich quick schemes! During this cycle, we are not risk takers–we need direction, clear goals, and strong plans, and we value tangible results. More specifically with Jupiter in Virgo, we attract the most good fortune when we are helpful, honest, practical, orderly, and when we pay more attention to details. The service industries, nutrition, and health are particularly prosperous avenues during this cycle. Taking care of our daily lives, routines, work, and health contribute to our sense of fulfillment and attract success.
During this Jupiter in Virgo cycle, we place strong emphasis and value on developing our skills and expanding our knowledge, being of service and helping/assisting others, and improving our health. We see opportunities to grow and succeed through learning or fine-tuning a craft, doing detailed work, planning and making lists for greater efficiency, being of assistance to others, and self-improvement endeavors. We value quiet persistence, loyalty, intelligence, know-how, service, integrity, common sense, practicality, duty, timeliness, attention to detail, and efficiency.
Jupiter not only likes to expand, it likes to learn, so when Jupiter is paired with Virgo, we may be more interested in learning about nutrition, health, natural or environmentally green practices, healthy habits, and practical crafts. We might particularly enjoy developing a particular skillset or learning a subject/skill more thoroughly.
There can be a stronger desire to be productive, and joy derived from getting things done. We might focus less on the goal and more on the process, and find ourselves enjoying it. We can develop a larger interest in natural health methods.
New avenues for work or self-expression through our skills and services might open, or we begin to see more opportunities for these things. People who have given up on finding suitable work or improving their health might now reconsider. This can be a wonderful time for fine-tuning a project, such as a big idea that came to us during the Jupiter in Leo transit that now needs special attention and detail work.
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 is often well-intentioned, but it can blind us to our immoderate behavior. In Virgo, we may focus too much on the process and lack direction. We may be excessively critical, nitpicking, or bossy, and we could suffer from inattention to spiritual needs and concerns or too narrow a focus.
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 are able to rise above pettiness, mundane concerns, inconveniences, and the like. Where Jupiter is currently transiting in your own chart is generally 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 square Saturn on August 3rd at 28 Leo 17 (first) [will occur again in March 2016 at 16 Virgo 24 and May 2016 at 13 Virgo 41]
Jupiter sesquiquadrate Uranus on September 2nd at 4 Virgo 55 (first/last)
Jupiter opposition Neptune on September 17th at 7 Virgo 58 (first/last)
Jupiter opposition Chiron on November 3rd at 17 Virgo 13 [will occur again in February 2016 at 20 Virgo and August 2016 at 24 Virgo]
Jupiter quincunx Uranus on November 5th at 17 Virgo 32 [will exact again in March 2016 at 18-19 Virgo and August 2016 at 24 Virgo]
Jupiter’s major aspects during its transit of Virgo are a mixed bag. Most notably, Jupiter forms a trine with Pluto, first in October, 2015, and then again in March and June, 2016. New ventures can be especially successful, but so can reviving projects already in progress. With this powerful aspect, there can be a stronger sense of confidence as well as increased ambition, gumption, and resourcefulness. We may be seeing opportunities where we previously saw obstacles, and there can be more depth and power in our pursuits.
While Jupiter first squares Saturn in early August while Jupiter is still in Leo, Jupiter is in Virgo for the March and May 2016 perfections of the Jupiter-Saturn square. This aspect presents a challenge and can be a reality check of sorts. This can be a time when Saturn is laying down the law, forcing us to constrict things a little after a period of expansion, and reminding us of our limits. This is not the time to take shortcuts–they won’t work. It is best to breathe new life into old plans rather than to strike out with a new plan altogether. Take steps to grow, but don’t overextend yourself at this time or you are bound to face frustrations.
Jupiter opposes Neptune as a quick-pass aspect in mid-September. Routine seems to be particularly unsatisfying now. This is a time when we easily take a detour from a practical path. It can also be a time when we are disillusioned by something (or someone). Spiritual inspiration is a potential, however.
Jupiter in Virgo (August 2015 to September 2016) and Business/Career For greater success in your career or business, be timely, efficient, responsible, conscientious, and loyal in your professional dealings. Show your know-how and highlight or showcase your attention to detail. Give more free helpful information, call attention to your attention to the environment. In career, invest in your ability to assist, serve, and support, and fine-tune your skills. Natural health and healing products can be in stronger focus.
Jupiter in Virgo (August 2015 to September 2016) and Relationships/Love For greater success in love and relationship while Jupiter transits Virgo, showcase your loyal, responsible, helpful, supportive, and conscientious traits. We tend to value the less flashy traits or personalities during this cycle.
Jupiter spends over a year in Virgo. The last time Jupiter transited Virgo was from August 2003 to September 2004. 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 Virgo from September 1991 to October 1992, and from September 1979 to October 1980.

Jupiter Transiting Virgo Horoscopes: What it Means for Each Sign
In a general sense, this is how Jupiter’s transit through Virgo affects the different Sun signs (or, more appropriately, Ascendant signs):
Jupiter entering Virgo on August 11th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar sixth house, Aries. From August 2015 to September 2016, you are likely to see benefits in the areas of work and health, as well as daily routines. 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 type of 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.
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 a great deal 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.
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. 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 ninth house and it’s now transiting your solar sixth house, your work can assume more importance and you may find more meaning in the work you do. You could be more adventurous in your work, publishing or travel could be themes now, work might involve more teaching or spreading of knowledge, and you might feel more strongly about your mental state and attitude and its impact on your health.
An especially powerful time for all of these things begins in October and runs until June 2016. From October forward, you are capable of completely renovating your work/career. Your ambition increases pleasantly, you are more enterprising, and you seek to expand your business or work pursuits, quite willingly putting in the extra effort to do so. You could be developing new products or redesigning your business, and recognition for your efforts is forthcoming.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar sixth house, from August 11th, 2015, to January 7th, 2016, and then from May 9th to September 9th in 2016.
Jupiter entering Virgo on August 11th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar fifth house, Taurus. 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, romance, 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 possibly even bring some type of 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 Taureans, meeting a special person is highly likely, although it’s more likely to be a casual relationship than a committed partnership.
Even so, while this position is associated with casual dating, because Jupiter rules your intimacy sector, you could be seeking more intensity, passion, and depth in your love life 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 speculative investments.
Relationships with your children may be especially fulfilling now. Pregnancy or childbirth may occur during this period, if applicable. This is a fabulous period in which to take a vacation you’ve always wanted to take, 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 are increased. You are far less inhibited when it comes to expressing yourself creatively, and you are a lot more fun to be around!
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. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and more willing to take some personal risks in order to do so. A potential negative of this transit is excessive emphasis on, or attention to, having fun to the detriment of other life departments.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel supported and confident during this approximately year-long cycle. Particularly from October forward, there is beautiful energy for getting the courage to express yourself more freely, as well as for transforming your creative life, love life, hobbies, and self-expression. There is more depth and power in your creative output, intensity in your romantic world/feelings, and a stronger commitment to improving your life. Your lifeview expands, enriches, and deepens. Your desire to share yourself with others strengthens. Creativity finds a successful channel or outlet, and you are pouring more of your heart and soul into what you create and share. There may be romantic opportunities through travel, with others of a vastly different cultural background than yours, or through the pursuit of your higher education goals.
This 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 August 11th, 2015, to January 7th, 2016, and then from May 9th to September 9th in 2016.
Jupiter entering Virgo on August 11th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar fourth house. From August 2015 to September 2016, 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 space.
Long-standing family problems may be ironed out. Relationships with parents and other family members could improve. You may find special enjoyment through getting in touch with, or researching, your roots or family traditions. There could be a family reunion, vacation, or other event that gives you a stronger sense of connection to your family. Family may help you financially or an 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.
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.
Because the ruler of your partnership sector is now moving through your home and family sector, there can be a stronger desire for harmony with others, and especially a partner, in order for you to feel secure and at peace. You are looking for nurturing and comfort in a partner during this cycle. There can be less of a need to look outside of your domestic world for social connections at this time.
From October forward, stronger energy is available for enjoying the more positive effects of this transit. 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, especially through a home or property, but also for long-term business endeavors. This is a powerful time for your inner world, for healing, and for forgiveness.
This can be a good time for clearing up guilt and resentment that you may be carrying from childhood conditioning. 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 August 11th, 2015, to January 7th, 2016, and then from May 9th to September 9th in 2016.
Jupiter entering Virgo on August 11th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar third house, dear Cancer. From August 2015 to September 2016, 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.
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 tempted to speak of matters without enough discrimination.
If you’re an author, teacher, or otherwise 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 more excessive tendencies of this transit are more likely to be experienced in September and November. 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.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy more opportunities through your communications and contact with others during this cycle. You could make new friends and feel more connected or part of a group this year. You might find that you travel less or not at all, and that you are busier locally. There can be opportunities through meetings, courses, teaching, and connections made in the neighborhood or through siblings. Some existing problems with siblings or neighbors could surface now and then can be put to rest. There can be more communication, movement, teaching, learning, writing, and errands in your job and daily routines. Some may work with a relative.
From October forward, a beautiful aspect involving Jupiter in your third house makes it an excellent period for studies of all kinds. Work can improve, and some may be taking a love relationship to a new level. Your perspective can change completely, in a very positive way, through a partner or new information that comes your way. Some of you could meet a significant other through communications, new mental interests, or studies. There can be growth in commitment or devotion in an existing partnership, largely through opening up the lines of communication and bonding as a result. Your views toward love and commitment can transform.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar third house, from August 11th, 2015, to January 7th, 2016, and then from May 9th to September 9th in 2016.
Jupiter entering Virgo on August 11th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar second house, Leo. From August 2015 to September 2016, 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. 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, 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!
For some of you, there could be the stabilizing of a romance or creative pursuit. 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.
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.
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 in September and November. 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.
During this cycle, you bring a fresh, positive, and confident attitude towards your own self-worth and value, and to your practical affairs, including work and career. From October forward especially, opportunities to attract improved conditions in your career and a boost in reputation can arise. Your attitude is a “can do” one now. New business ventures can be especially successful.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar second house, from August 11th, 2015, to January 7th, 2016, and then from May 9th to September 9th in 2016.
Jupiter entering Virgo on August 11th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar first house, Virgo, lasting from August 2015 to September 2016. This exciting transit occurs only every twelve years or so, and brings improvements to your immediate environment and self-confidence, as well as increased generosity to your personality. 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.
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 are not inclined much to sweat the small stuff.
You create a distinct first impression on others, and your likeability increases. 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.
You feel considerably freer to be yourself right now, and others tend to accept you more readily. These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once, although they are more likely due to Jupiter’s direct influence on your life. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life, and always watch for overdoing things or carelessness.
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 family and home life. Some of you could be especially proud of your role in the family, or you could be feeling supported and backed by your loved ones. This comes at the same time as the beginning of a Saturn transit to your home and family sector, so that there may be some restrictions on the homefront as well. There is generally good energy for bringing more structure and simplicity to the family and home now.
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, for which you are now enjoying some level of freedom from), and now you can put some of your personal interests on the front burner.
During this cycle, others seem to be appreciating the very qualities that come most naturally to you. You attract the most good fortune when you are helpful, honest, orderly, and paying attention to details. The service industries, nutrition, and health are prosperous avenues. Practical and technical knowledge and skills are most valued. You are a practical realist who needs to visualize results in order to feel motivated to achieve them. You are a “doer” who is not easily lured by get rich quick schemes. You need direction, clear goals, and strong plans, and you value tangible results.
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 time. It’s a good time to resolve conflicts. You may be released from previously confining situations that have been stunting your growth or progress. 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.
October forward is especially strong for creative self-expression, finding yourself/a voice through creative projects and communications, a more empowered feeling in general, and romantic experiences. New ventures can be especially successful, but so can reviving projects already in progress. Your attitude towards life is changing and your perspective is entirely different – you’re seeing opportunities where you previously saw obstacles. You are less guarded about what you say and do, and thus feel freer to express yourself.
There might be times, especially in September and early November, when others may be put off or threatened by your newfound displays of freedom and independence, or when you have troubles with self-discipline, budgets, and limits. Financial matters can also weigh on you. Otherwise, this can be a time of opportunity. You might choose to pursue a hobby or creative activity 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 August 11th, 2015, to January 7th, 2016, and then from May 9th to September 9th in 2016.
Jupiter entering Virgo on August 11th, 2015, puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar twelfth house, Libra. From August 2015 to September 2016, you may enjoy benefits to 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. 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 may be particularly helpful to you now, as they regenerate and invigorate your spirit. Much pleasure and growth might be found in solitude and contemplation. You may pick up New Age studies, spirituality, dream interpretation, or research during this cycle. Some people enter into a private romance during this cycle. 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. There may be some sacrifices required in your family life, or your domestic life can be especially private.
Jupiter’s influence is generally considered positive, and it is, ultimately. However, it acts to magnify the area of the chart that it affects, and at times it can be uncomfortable if you are having difficulties in this area. 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.
This is generally 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. With the ruler of your communications sector in the sector of your chart that rules private matters, anonymity, healing, and endings, you could be keeping a lot of your thoughts, personal interests, or projects to yourself during this cycle. For some of you, there can be work on a project in relative solitude or privacy. Your close personal relationships tend to be private and possibly involve some sacrifices.
In September and November in particular, there can be some strains on health or pressures in a partnership. Difficulties keeping up with daily schedules can be an issue.
There is stronger joy in being of service to others, but do be careful that you take care of yourself as well.
Your perceptions heighten, and in fact, intuition is extremely reliable now. Your ability to make sacrifices for others increases, and you might build your confidence in yourself as you help and support others.
From October forward is an especially strong period for strengthening ties with family as well as getting into better touch with your inner world and deeper feelings. This is also a good period for material renovations, as well as financial strategy and improvement. Your style of communication transforms, you are especially persuasive, and you are attracted to richer, deeper learning pursuits.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar twelfth house, from August 11th, 2015, to January 7th, 2016, and then from May 9th to September 9th in 2016.
Jupiter entering Virgo on August 11th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar eleventh house, Scorpio. From August 2015 to September 2016, 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.
Your long-term goals and wishes tend to be broad and perhaps unusual or ahead of the times during this cycle. You may particularly enjoy dreaming up ideas for the future. Achieving your goals tends to come more easily. 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. Income from your business or career is likely to increase, and can in fact be a major sour

Others can point you in new directions. There can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically. A new work or business project can excite you and bring you into contact with interesting, helpful people. 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.
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, 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. Watch for over-emphasis on activities that take you away from your practical responsibilities too often. 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, or there can be challenges keeping up with work and daily affairs, particularly in September and November.
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. Strong energy is with you for expressing yourself, networking, and building a following for your ideas and work, particularly from October forward. You have a better ability to effect change, especially through your increased powers of persuasion. People may be looking to you for direction or leadership. Making connections that improve your life can figure strongly now.

Jupiter entering Virgo on August 11th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar tenth house, Sagittarius. From August 2015 to September 2016, increased public recognition and professional success are very possible. Your personality, skills, and talents are recognized now like never before. 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 a marriage. You may come into the limelight.
Your hard work and effort can be recognized now, and this can be especially true for your individuality and personality – you are presenting yourself in a more respectable manner.

Sagittarians are likely to carry themselves with more maturity, and gain more respect during this period.
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 have 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!
An important project or goal might be realized 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.
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. 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 romantic partner, family member, or child who is at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your career or public life, particularly in September and November. Confusion or disorder in your home life, or possibly your own insecurities, can negatively impact your career or more worldly pursuits.

October forward can be especially strong for practical matters, business, financial improvement, and recognition for natural talents and skills. This is a time for expansion, strategy, and renovation. 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. Your timing, particularly in business, is improved. There can be discovery of talents you never knew you had, or you may be coming public with a project you worked on for some time behind the scenes.

You are likely to be more intellectually curious now, and academic pursuits can both benefit you and run especially 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.

Watch for a tendency towards a “holier than thou” attitude.
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. To some extent, the internet is ruled by the ninth house in the sense that it can provide a platform for the sharing of ideas and self-publishing, and some Capricorns will be pursuing or expanding these things. You may be helping, volunteering services, or supporting people along educational lines, writing about past experiences, and sharing your ideas during this empowering cycle. Over the course of this cycle, you might have the opportunity to reach a broader audience. You might choose to learn a new language or take on other studies.

There can be resolution to long-standing problems, possibly a positive legal outcome, discoveries of personal strengths and talents, or a new and exciting project. Some of you could meet a significant friend through travel or other activity that involves breaking the regular routine.
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.

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. Benefit can come through jointly held resources, loans, or taxes. 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.
Because Jupiter rules your friendship and ideals sector and is now in the eighth house, friendships might go through transformations or they might deepen during this period. You could be working towards a cause that is very close to your heart, or that is related to sexuality or power dynamics.
In September and early November especially, you would be wise to avoid excesses that can negatively impact your personal income and watch for the accumulation of shared debt.

Legal matters or challenging relationship problems from the past might more easily be resolved now, and even more casual disputes are likely to be settled during this cycle.
The need for freedom in your social relationships is strong, however, and if it is not forthcoming, you could feel caged in and restless.

You might fall victim to wasting opportunities, time, or resources with transiting Jupiter opposing your natal Sun. Generally, this transit is a “feel-good” transit, 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.
Jupiter rules your sector of career, reputation, social standing, and life-plan goals. Any of these things can be tied with partnerships during this period. Some of you could meet a partner through a career affiliation or through the pursuit of your ambitions. Existing partnerships can strengthen through sharing common goals and ambitions.
