Jupiter expands our experiences, our knowledge, and our understanding. Jupiter represents optimism, growth, generosity, and abundance. While in Capricorn, Jupiter urged us to define goals, seek out tangible results, act ethically and maturely, and take a disciplined and step-by-step approach to realize our objectives. We focused on our material goals, structures, rules, and sense of responsibility (from December 2019 to December 2020).
When Jupiter was in Aquarius (December 2020 to May 2021 and July 2021 to December 2021), Jupiter expanded our awareness of our place in the community and the needs of all. Jupiter in Aquarius encouraged fairness, impartiality, individuality, and humanitarianism. We reaped rewards through being more inclusive and just. And, we opened our minds to progress.
When Jupiter was in Pisces (May 13 to July 28, 2021; December 28, 2021, to May 10, 2022; and October 28 to December 20, 2022), Jupiter expanded our awareness of our spirituality and compassion. Jupiter in Pisces encouraged us to give of ourselves and embrace compassion and imagination. We valued charity, tenderness, and empathy.
When Jupiter was in Aries (May 10 to October 28, 2022 and December 20, 2022, to May 16, 2023), Jupiter expanded our awareness of our personal courage and enterprising nature. Jupiter in Aries encouraged us to embrace the inner pioneer, believe in ourselves, and make our own opportunities.
Now in Taurus, Jupiter expands our awareness of our need to establish ourselves and build upon what we own and have. Jupiter in Taurus encourages us to embrace our needs for comfort, security, grounding, stability, collecting, and providing for ourselves.
Jupiter is in Taurus from:
May 16, 2023, to May 25, 2024.
With an Earth sign Jupiter, we are practical realists who need to visualize results to feel motivated to achieve them–this is how we grow and expand. 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 robust plans, and we value tangible results.
More specifically, with Jupiter in Taurus, we attract the most good fortune when we are steady workers, charitable, generous but discriminating, and patient.
Prosperous areas are ones that allow us to discriminate and determine the worth of products and to draw upon our resourcefulness. Long-term financial investments are in favor.
A strong self-image or feelings of self-worth contribute to success.
Winning Good Fortune
With Jupiter in Taurus, we function at our best when we feel comfortable, autonomous, and secure.
Jupiter in Taurus brings opportunities related to patience, building and strengthening efforts, and focusing on comfort, stability, and longevity.
There can be a delight for sensual pleasures and a desire for the “simple good life” with Jupiter in Taurus.
In contrast to the urgency of the previous Jupiter cycle while Jupiter was in Aries, we can take pleasure now in pursuing our goals in a more drawn out and leisurely fashion, watching our profits or possessions slowly but surely accumulate.
During this cycle, basic needs have to be met satisfyingly before we pursue other goals.
We win good fortune when we observe wisely rather than jump too quickly into something new. Considering long-term viability and value is well-advised–and comes more naturally–while Jupiter transits Taurus.
We value steadiness, persistence, longevity, predictability, naturalness, self-willed efforts, and determination during this Jupiter cycle. Our attitudes and values concerning religion, moral conduct, education, and politics are pragmatic and conventional.
We prefer that people are natural but polite and not unnecessarily crude. We embrace what’s natural, established, long-lasting, and straightforward. We respect tradition, consistency, loyalty, honor, and durability.
Too Much Jupiter in Taurus
Because Jupiter’s nature is extravagant, we must guard against “too much.” This applies no matter which sign Jupiter is currently visiting. Jupiter’s zeal can supersede moderation at times. It can expand the more negative qualities of a sign, just as it can magnify the positive traits.
Jupiter’s enthusiasm can be well-intentioned but might blind us to our immoderate behaviors.
In Taurus, we can be stubborn and too self-focused, if overdone. Negative manifestations include a too-narrow focus, some insensitivity to others’ needs, failing to consider others’ points of view and leaving opportunities behind as a result, and resisting change and innovation.
These things may be more prevalent around Jupiter’s square to Pluto on May 17th, 2023, and, to a lesser degree, during its minor clash with Neptune in July, November, and March (see the exact timing of these aspects below).
With the planet of freedom in a sign that’s particularly self-interested, we must avoid overdoing the focus on self. While we’re developing our self-image with Jupiter in Taurus, and it’s a vital process, we should watch for over-valuing our personal experience at the expense of others. Let’s face it, too much self-focus can be detrimental to the individual as well. Healthy self-interest should be the goal during this cycle.
While our determination and follow-through are admirable during this cycle, we might miss opportunities to improve and innovate if we stubbornly stick to only what’s worked for us in the past.
Possessions can be our comfort or pleasure zone, which can lead to having too much or an unhealthy focus on material things or the joy of buying.
Jupiter in Taurus Working For Us
However, the higher vibration or expression of Jupiter seeks 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 boost and build these areas of life. In order to develop, we need to pursue our goals with more determination and consistency.
We’re a little more entitled, ideally just enough to be healthy, in these areas, and it helps boost us.
Jupiter in Taurus Prosperity
The Jupiter in Taurus cycle is a strong period for believing in our ability to provide for ourselves and loved ones. It’s powerful for efforts to build, establish, collect, sustain, strengthen, and bolster.
With Jupiter, we extend our reach, and in Taurus, we’re more inclined to appeal to others through our faith in ourselves. It’s in the world of our five senses where we tend to want to grow, improve, expand, and thrive, or it’s through our patience and follow-through that we feel we can prosper.
While Jupiter was in Aries, we may have had a hard time sticking with things, as we preferred the highs of innovation and inspiration. Now, we more readily hunker down and appreciate what we have or build upon our ideas and make them work.
There can be some good fortune or experiences surrounding money, gifts, or personal possessions due to improved resourcefulness. Investments may pay off, or we may realize property gains.
Fields that prosper include agriculture, food, building, music, luxury comfort items, and natural or earthy beauty products.
Work that involves steadily building something, conservative moves, and some routine can be most attractive or profitable.
In Taurus, Jupiter urges us to enjoy, appreciate, and build on what we already have, and to adopt a patient approach to achieving our goals.
Jupiter in Taurus & Persistence
We value following through and sticking with things while Jupiter is in Taurus, more so than usual. These things hold more weight.
We might encourage one another’s determination during this Jupiter-in-Taurus transit. The qualities of Taurus are qualities that, when displayed and embraced, help us to expand our personality and life experience. These characteristics include: loyal, sensual, strong-minded, persevering, down-to-earth, stable, stubborn, possessive, prosperous, dependable, and physical.
It’s an excellent cycle for efforts that require pursuing a straightforward path with longevity and follow-through.
Our common sense, earthiness, practicality, and perseverance can help us thrive. We approach philosophical or educational activities with down-to-earth pragmatism. With our strong belief in sticking with something to the end, we can inspire others to choose a worthwhile pursuit and persevere with it.
We’re not afraid of the routine–in fact, we relish the chance to simplify our work.
We’re not comfortable with flakiness, indecision, unreliability, and unpredictability during this cycle. In fact, we seek more comfort, pleasure, and predictability in our lives while Jupiter transits Taurus.
Media, Health, Energy
We may see more Taurus themes and topics in the media as we become more and more fascinated with Taurus energies.
The arts help us connect with our own higher vision of beauty and harmony and help to keep us balanced.
Taurus is decisive, not afraid to be themselves, self-centered, content, possessive, and peaceful. We may see more themes in the media spotlighting the patient, determined, competent, and laconic hero. People with strong Taurus influences in their charts (for example, Jessica Alba, Daniel Day Lewis, Carol Burnett, Ann-Margaret, Cher, George Clooney, Farrah Franklin, Chris Brown, Kunal Nayyar, Soan, Craig David, and so forth) can rise in relevance or popularity during this period.
Health issues with Jupiter are usually related to excesses, while Taurus issues are often connected to the throat or neck. Taurus accumulates, as does Jupiter, but regularity and rhythm are important with the sign, and Jupiter could upset the balance.
Jupiter is also associated with the liver, memory, and arterial blood flow. Jupiter transits can be protective but they can also enlarge or exaggerate functions.
Health problems associated with Taurus under stress include thyroid or parathyroid issues (example, cysts), throat or tonsil irregularities, and problems with the voice or vocal cords or sense of smell, which could come into prominence with Jupiter in Taurus.
It’s certainly possible that latent problems in these areas can magnify during this Jupiter transit. It’s also possible that solutions arise for these issues since Jupiter has healing, protective energy.
This can be an excellent time for special attention to developing the voice through voice training, for example, and to throat care or the throat chakra.
Focusing on steadiness, regularity, and rhythm or balance can be fortifying during this cycle. Pacing ourselves can be beneficial, more so than usual.

The following are Jupiter’s transits to the outer planets while it’s in Taurus this time around.
May 24, 2024 3:53 AM Jupiter 29 Taurus 37 semi-square True Node 14 Aries 37
While the list of aspects is a long one, some are minor aspects. The following stick out the most:
Jupiter square Pluto
Jupiter’s square to Pluto can rev up our ambitions. We might feel that if we set our sights high enough, we can achieve anything. However, treading lightly now, while it may not come naturally, is advised as it is easy to stir up trouble or opposition.
For example, we may take on too many interests, activities, or desires under this influence. Exaggerating our importance or power, either to ourselves or others, should be avoided.
Something might challenge our belief system, and the need for a major attitude or outlook change arises, or we might have to face narrow-mindedness in others (or in ourselves). Trying to force our beliefs on others will only lead to frustration.
Jupiter’s conjunction to the Moon’s North Node is a highly growth-oriented aspect that stirs our need to improve, experience new things, and level up our lives.
This is a time for rewarding, beneficial, and perhaps profitable connections. We’re joining with others through shared beliefs, ideals, and visions. Our outlook is positive, and we want to do good things, improve, and develop ourselves and our minds. We’re particularly focused on goals and objectives that feel worthwhile, long-term, and appeal to our higher minds and morals.
Jupiter sextile Saturn
Jupiter’s sextile to Saturn brings opportunities to put our plans into motion. We’re balanced in our approach to new endeavors, seeing both the potential benefits and pitfalls, and this improves our judgment. This influence helps to crystallize and lock down lessons learned and endeavors begun recently.
This is a period of constructive accomplishment. We are practical, realistic, and our judgment is especially sound–and we derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. We find a good balance between planning and discovering.
It’s also a time when we value learning and valid information from trustworthy sources. We respect reasonable, ethical, and sound approaches.
Jupiter’s conjunction to Uranus is exciting, futuristic, and original. The need for progressive change becomes glaringly apparent under this influence. It’s a time when we’re itching to update, refresh, and renew ourselves, projects, circumstances, and connections.
We might take risks (perhaps, but not necessarily, foolish ones) for the sake of freedom during this transit. We could too easily avoid taking responsibility for things that truly matter, or we could feel exceptionally restless.
We’re open to new energies, approaches, and attitudes. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of our willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. We are feeling brave, positive, and optimistic. Enthusiasm runs high, the desire for freedom from restrictions is strong, and thirst for adventure is with us. Read more about the Jupiter conjunct Uranus aspect.
Jupiter sextile Neptune
Jupiter’s sextile to Neptune brings a striving for inspiration. Or, we are inspired to follow a dream or vision and to pursue a cause.
Under this influence, we are considering our dreams, imagination, and compassion as we plan out or pursue our objectives, and we may feel supported or encouraged on a spiritual level. We are inclined to see the good in people and situations.
With Jupiter’s quintile to Saturn, we are clever at putting our goals into action. We have a strong sense of timing, and we want to design and plan things well. There is cleverness and common sense to our designs and ideas at this time.
Jupiter’s semi-square with Neptune in July, November, and March suggests some challenge latching onto dreams that will lead to something concrete or are truly realizable. We should watch carefully for a tendency to evade and avoid things, as well as for writing ourselves new beliefs or philosophies that justify this avoidance.
Jupiter’s conjunctions with the Inner Planets
The following conjunctions of inner planets to Jupitercan help us pinpoint particularly opportune periods (power boosts) for Jupiter in Taurus (times are Eastern):
May 18, 2024 2:45 PM—– Sun 28 Taurus 18 conjunction Jupiter 28 Taurus 18
The Sun aligns with Jupiter in Taurus on May 18th, 2024, and we’re wide open to possibilities and opportunities. Vitality increases, and we’re especially generous, optimistic, and sociable. This is a good time to take steps to grow something–our business, our significant relationships, and so forth.
Venus aligns with Jupiter on May 23rd, 2024, and we’re generous with others, searching for meaning in our relationships and pastimes.
The Moon aligns with Jupiter every four weeks. Our moods lift. While Jupiter is in Taurus, these dates in 2023 are May 17th, June 14th, July 11th, August 8th, September 4th, October 1st, October 29th, November 25th, and December 22nd; in 2024, the dates are January 18th, February 15th, March 13th, April 10th, and May 8th.
Jupiter in Taurus (May 16, 2023, to May 25, 2024) and Business/Career Jupiter in Taurus encourages us to attend to our needs for comfort and stability. Uranus, still in Taurus this year, wants us to branch out and consider new and improved or progressive ways of doing business.
We place more value on providing for ourselves, things and experiences that last, and products and services that are earthy, practical, timeless, natural, and high-quality.
With work, we tend to prefer predictability and stability. Jupiter in Taurus reminds us to get comfortable, build long-lasting businesses or products, draw on patience, and appreciate the world of the five senses. We might make innovative products for doing “comfort” in new ways. Increased financial freedom can be a goal.
This can be a time when people are more likely to indulge themselves, wanting to get comfortable. We’re also seeking beautiful, balanced things of high quality and promising longevity. Sensual pleasures can be in focus. We might especially value products and services featuring music, song, entertainment, luxury or comfort items, food, and beauty.
Held in higher esteem now, whether there are increased benefits or not, are businesses that are earth-friendly, natural, and simple but high quality. Whether something lasts is more important to us than a one-off experience. In favor and valued now are the practical realists. For business success, it’s best to be straightforward, honestly simple, and transparent. There can be joy in taking something all the way–building and producing slowly, steadily, and surely.
Jupiter in Taurus (May 16, 2023, to May 25, 2024) and Relationships/Love
Jupiter in steady, sensual Taurus brings a general philosophy of life that emphasizes enjoying ourselves and the moment, yet keeping an eye on the future. We seek steady, reliable people and warm, luxurious, comfortable situations. Someone who exudes a strong sense of self-worth can be most attractive. We’re romantic but not necessarily flowery or starry-eyed. Simple, earthy people and experiences are most attractive during this cycle.
There can be an emphasis on getting our finances in order or being comfortable and able to provide for ourselves as a big part of our relationship goals. Getting in touch with our own needs can be healthy and magical, ultimately benefiting our relationships.
We could very well see more breakups than usual happening over whether or not a partner is reliable, sensual, or financially stable enough. With Jupiter in Taurus, our philosophy of life alters considerably. We value the here and now and what we have in place. We appreciate what we already have, which can be very strengthening for existing relationships, particularly if the emphasis is on the giving and receiving of pleasure, and if these connections are not too complicated.
We might also place more value on relationships that keep us feeling free from want, materially speaking–or that seem to be moving in that direction. Relationships themselves may be seen as a vehicle through which we can feel more secure spiritually.
While Pluto is working to transform our values in the long term, Jupiter has a more immediate effect on our value system. With Jupiter in Taurus for some of 2023 and 2024, our attitude towards partnering can emphasize personal fulfillment, and if partnerships hold us back from personal growth and happiness, it becomes more glaring.
For greater success in love and relationship while Jupiter transits Taurus, it’s a time to showcase your steady, determined, persistent, and stable qualities. We’re not impressed with an excessive focus on the spiritual or emotional worlds, and we don’t find indecision or flakiness attractive. We value partnerships and connections that encourage our comfort and enjoyment of the simple pleasures of life.

Jupiter in Taurus
Jupiter spends many months in the sign of Taurus, staying a little over a year in the sign. The last time Jupiter transited Taurus was from June 2011 to June 2012. What we started during the last Jupiter-in-Taurus period is now enjoying a Jupiter return — it’s going through a rebirth, of sorts — so that it might blossom, increase, or require adjustments in order to grow further.
Before then, Jupiter was in Taurus from June 1999 to June 2000, March 1988 to March 1989, March 1976 to April 1977, and April 1964 to April 1965.
If you have Jupiter in Taurus in your natal chart, then YOU are enjoying a Jupiter return. You’re enjoying some bounties, but you’re also seeing possibly more promising directions, paths, or projects. It’s a time to start projects or activities that lead to greater fulfillment.
Jupiter Transiting Taurus Horoscopes: What it Means for Each Sign
The following are excerpted and adapted from my 2023 Preview Horoscopes. In a general sense, this is how Jupiter’s transit through Taurus affects the different Sun signs (and Ascendant signs):
From May 16th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024, your money, personal possessions, valuables, and self-worth are expanding, increasing, improving, and growing. 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 or that you’re at a stage when you want to enjoy the fruits of your labor more thoroughly.
This influence lasts over a year! It’s a strong time for buying long-term valuables. You will likely make bigger decisions about your material resources during this period.
This cycle is vital for attracting more money, especially through publishing or sharing your knowledge. Travel, religion, education, promotion, or the law can tie up with finances this year. Be careful if you are suddenly in the position to receive, for example, a credit line or sizeable loan – spend wisely. It would be best to watch for overspending since you’re much more confident and optimistic in these areas.
There can be some consequences or challenges with your new attitude towards money. For example, drains of your resources from friends, experimenting with new ventures, or social pursuits could be an issue, particularly around the Jupiter-Pluto square in May 2023.
Also, if you receive more money, you might have the attitude that there’s more coming down the road and subsequently spend too extravagantly.
Potential difficulties: Be alert for an attitude toward 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, you might take foolish risks, such as borrowing from your future. Watch also for over-indulgence. Be extra careful if lending or borrowing. Especially in May, it’s best to avoid excess. You’re more ambitious with happiness goals and pursuits, but it’s best not to take on so much that you dilute your efforts.
Otherwise, this is a robust period for bringing a fresh, positive, and confident attitude toward your self-worth/value and practical affairs. You could be more enthusiastic or optimistic about earning a living. It’s also possible that a money problem will clear up. A major purchase or sale can figure strongly. This transit might also bring a significant memento or financial benefit, a new item, or a windfall.
During this yearlong transit, you can successfully expand your resources, develop your talents, and improve your money situation. It can be a time of a pleasant feeling of self-sufficiency. There can be powerful changes in how you view your money, resources, assets, personal belongings, and natural talents or earning power during this period.
Connecting with your dreams, beliefs, and visions helps boost your feelings of self-worth, and you can be determined to be responsible for your own income. It can be a good period for financial and professional blessings. Notably, your faith in earning improves. You may need to take care of some unfinished business before money matters flow. In June, you’re in a particularly strong position to make things happen with your money and things.
It can be a period when you receive more money or other material resources, perhaps through gifts or a pay increase. Alternatively, your perception of your resources is such that you feel you have enough and then some.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar second house, from May 16th to September 4th, 2023, and then from December 30th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024.
Aries Quick Take: This is a time of expanded and/or improved money matters, comfort levels, security, personal belongings, and sense of self-worth or abundance.
While Jupiter transits your sign from May 16, 2023-May 25, 2024, dear Taurus, you enjoy an opportunity period.
This transit lasts a little over a year and comes only every twelve years, serving to bring you out of your shell. You’re ready to take on the world!
It’s a time for exploring your needs and pursuing your dreams. Your personality, image, body image, and self-confidence expand to new levels with Jupiter in your sign. You see brand-new possibilities, and your vision of life is panoramic.
Jupiter in Taurus
If you’ve done your inner “work” well while Jupiter was transiting your solar twelfth house just before this transit, this can be an especially rewarding period. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world are growing exponentially. Freedom is what you seek, and it’s a beautiful quest as long as you keep in mind the potential costs of freedom when it’s pursued without the necessary attention to responsibilities.
You are more willing to enjoy new experiences and rid yourself of those things that have held you back from truly living and owning your life.
There can be new projects you begin now that have long-term potential. You may not yet know where you’re heading with them, but you’re undoubtedly enthusiastic about starting anew. Happily, you experience a powerful initiative at this time in your life.
Expanding your horizons through higher learning might also figure strongly. It’s a time to align your behavior with what you believe is right. You are taking more “me” time, which is, in fact, long overdue.
Because Jupiter is the natural ruler of your solar eighth house, your new beginnings can very much tie in with a matter related to an intimate relationship, ending an addiction or obsession, pooling your money or talents with someone, paying debts, or other shared resources. Sometimes inheritance or support is involved. A lifestyle change impacts your confidence and approach to life.
You could do more learning in a self-directed manner. You’re seeking more freedom to explore and discover. A long-standing problem or belief can end, freeing you on a mental plane. Your success on inner levels or in your intimate life relates to expressing your personality or independence fully or more confidently, the confidence in your ingenuity, or your body, appearance, or image. This transit also favors teaching, publishing, or advantages in court or school.
You seek a new beginning – a fresh start, of sorts – and your desire to do right is powerful. Work or projects you have been developing in private or behind the scenes may begin to pay off. There is less focus on serving and helping others, perhaps because this is no longer as necessary. For example, a child can go off to college, or it’s even possible that it’s the end of a relationship or major project 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 interests on the front burner.
You won’t feel like puttering about 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–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 of your personality.
It can be a time of increased personal meaning and purpose. Personal initiative is strong. The motivation arrives to work on healing any problems with presenting yourself confidently or self-image issues.
Potential problems: Restlessness, over-confidence, wastefulness, weight gain, pompous behavior, and excesses, in general, are potential pitfalls when the energies of Jupiter go too far. See to it that these things don’t mar an otherwise excellent period. In your desire to start over, watch that you don’t blind yourself to certain essentials and responsibilities.
There might also be times when others feel threatened by your newfound displays of freedom and independence, when your personal desires are greater than your means, or when you have trouble with self-discipline, budgets, and limits.
Otherwise, this can be a time of opportunity. There can be a strong sense of release and freedom from previously limiting, rigid, or stifling conditions.
A positive attitude will bring favorable circumstances into your life if you remain realistic. Try not to take unnecessary risks or gambles. Your heart is very open this year. Protect it with realistic expectations, and you’ll have a memorable time!
A significant other seems quite supportive of your efforts toward self-improvement. While you may have struggled with your personal philosophy and belief systems in recent years, you feel more confident about your behavior aligning with what you believe is right.
In May, when this transit begins, your desire for more personal freedom could clash with your professional goals or with the attention you feel is needed for your responsibilities to the outside world. Your stronger need for independence or space can come with a price! The temptation may be to overdo it in both areas, but a compromise is less stressful.
June brings excellent opportunities through or for friends, networking, and business income. A more stable approach to extracurricular activities or socializing can boost you at this time. You feel more confident about going after your dreams and happiness goals. Friends could be integral in your quest for more from life.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar first house, from May 16th to September 4th, 2023, and then from December 30th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024.
Taurus Quick Take: Your self-esteem gets a boost! This is a time of living more heartily and happily, presenting yourself to the world with more confidence and a stronger sense of adventure.
With Jupiter in Taurus, this planet of abundance is transiting your privacy sector, dear Gemini. From May 16th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024, the areas of life that expand, grow, and reward you are your spiritual world, compassion, private life, and tolerance. It’s a cycle of looking within and learning your inner strength. You may appreciate some level of solitude or greater privacy.
Matters from the past magnify in your life during this period. Your inclination is to do more musing–you’re sorting through the attitudes that serve you well and the behaviors that need to go so you can grow, improve, and thrive. This theme prepares you for the time when Jupiter transits your sign –when you’ll then be ready to share yourself more fully with the world. [Jupiter will be in Gemini from May 25th, 2024, to June 9th, 2025.]
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 or that your joy in life is not as apparent to others. It’s a somewhat withdrawn, reflective period of your life. You may be exploring the hidden elements of life or developing your spirituality now.
You may also be more markedly compassionate and empathetic. Events occurring now expand your inner world and your innate compassion, warmth, or inner eye.
This can be a powerful period for volunteer work or work done behind the scenes, in private, or in the helping professions.
Because this transit connects your sector of partnership, one-on-one connections, negotiations, and balance with your sector of solitude and endings, this can also be a time when a one-to-one relationship –or your feelings about partnering– is going through changes. There can be hidden or elusive elements to your partnerships, or you could be putting a long-standing problem along these lines behind you. It’s possible you’re dealing with a hidden relationship or a sense of flux/turning points with someone. You could be in a supportive role, handling a lot behind the scenes. Do watch for putting too many things on hold for a relationship.
Potential challenges: Escapism. It can be tempting to escape your everyday responsibilities and challenges. In particular, avoid reliance on drugs, drinking, or other “glamorous” forms of escape. You indeed need more breaks from the usual, but it’s best to aim for healthy forms of hiatus.
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 that life department!
In your case, if you are lonely or feel helpless and have trouble facing your past, this influence can heighten these issues. Ultimately, it’s for good. Initial magnification can help you see, starting the process that leads to improvements. The cosmos asks you to surrender some of your attachments and surrender to the unknown. Releasing control is necessary.
Building your faith is the work you are doing now. While you tend to play a supportive role to others during this phase, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries with your energy and time. There can be some strains on mental and physical health in spots.
However, what you’re doing now leads to significant improvements. There can be stronger joy in being of service to others, but be careful to take care of yourself as well.
Connecting with people from your past can figure strongly, or you can be quite focused on past friendships. Sometimes with this influence, a previous enemy or person you didn’t like now becomes a friend.
For the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. Your perceptions heighten. Your ability to make sacrifices for others increases, and you can build your confidence in yourself as you help and support others.
This influence is particularly favorable for activities taking place “behind the scenes” or otherwise privately–and in the soul. It’s a cycle in which your compassion, sensitivity, and empathy blossom, or you get in deeper touch with these traits. You might work on ridding yourself of self-destructive tendencies, deep-seated fears, and deeply-ingrained tendencies toward guilty feelings. Happily, you are more able to get in touch with your subconscious mind, and in fact, confronting your fears can be pretty 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 helps you.
Your dream world may be especially rich yet also lighter, helpful, and more intuitive. Meditation and retreats may benefit you as they regenerate and invigorate your spirit. You can find much pleasure and growth in solitude and contemplation.
More vital interest in spirituality is possible during this period. There can be surprising events and changes to your inner world. Intuition heightens. Aim to pay attention to what comes to you through dreams or hunches. You may very well discover new interests and desires that help rid you of outdated habits or attachments to the past that no longer serve you well. A secret might come to light for some of you that serves the same purpose.
Your dreaming world is active in 2023 and the first months of 2024. Spiritual teachers may come into your life. A feeling of spiritual protection is with you, and your faith in the “unseen” begins to grow.
In May when this transit begins, there can be initial challenges due to side-tracking. You can experience a fundamental yearning for something more than just mundane existence. To grow, you might discover that you can’t stick with certain ideas that keep you locked in the past. You might struggle with a moral issue. Aim to open yourself to new ideas that liberate you and fill you with confidence.
Fortunately, in June especially, you are in the position to inspire others through what you create. It’s easier to moderate the tendency to excess and channel your energies well. Teaching or guiding may be connected with your work now, and work done behind the scenes can pay off. A Jupiter-Node connection can pull your attention to the need to build your reserves and volunteer or support a person in need.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar twelfth house, from May 16th to September 4th, 2023, and then from December 30th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024.
Gemini Quick Take: You’re focusing on your inner world and developing your relationship with yourself while Jupiter is in Taurus. Benefits come from hidden places.
While Jupiter is in Taurus, this planet of abundance transits your social sector, dear Cancer. From May 16th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024, your connections to others, group associations, and friendships expand and grow. This influence lasts a little over a year. It’s a pleasant, supportive transit that only comes around approximately every 12 years.
During this cycle, social and happiness goals receive a boost–it’s now the time to feel considerably more confident about the future. You’re gaining confidence in your ability to set plans in motion that will allow you to accomplish some of your most cherished hopes and dreams.
Happiness goals are the focus–and it feels good to plan, enjoy, and dream.
This transit fills you with new ideas, dreams, and hopes. You are planting seeds, so to speak, aiming to get started on projects that will reap the rewards in the future. While this can be exciting, try to take on only what you can handle. Your vision is quite optimistic, and you might overestimate what you can do down the road! However, one or two projects can be inspiring and also quite innovative. Remind yourself that more is not necessarily better and that sometimes “less is more.”
With more contact with others, whether it’s about an expanded real-life group of connections or online, you are sure to come up with new ideas and gain inspiration. Others can point you in new directions. There can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically. A new work project or health pursuit can excite you and connect you with interesting, helpful people. Business income should increase.
It can also be a time of budding friendships and/or group involvement. New people may come into your life and seek your companionship, or existing friendships refresh and enhance. Opportunities to advance or new learning experiences can come through associates, friendships, and networking. For some, this can be a vital time for an internet business.
People can be friendlier than usual to you, and you may benefit from group connections or mingling. You are popular within groups, and circumstances have a way of turning in your favor. Your curiosity about others or the community awakens or blossoms. During this life phase, you can accomplish wonders with your initiatives or causes that you believe in.
You’re also in great shape to enjoy the fruits of your recent labor, promotion, and successes. You display more tolerance of others, and you’re inclined to take an interest in alternative subjects.
Potential challenges: Over-emphasis on activities that take you away from your practical responsibilities too often.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life to expand your social life and friends base and dream up exciting new paths for the future. It’s also a powerful time to lead a group, organize, and start up a new endeavor, especially an innovative one.
On another level, a working relationship can become friendlier, or you might work together with a friend. Sharing a goal, particularly related to improved health or daily affairs and routines, can bond you with someone during this period.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eleventh house, from May 16th to September 4th, 2023, and then from December 30th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024.
Cancer Quick Take: You’re connecting and contributing more and more. Happiness goals and friendships are in strong focus, and they’re in excellent shape.
When Jupiter is in Taurus, it’s transiting your sector of career, achievement, and reputation, dear Leo. From May 16th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024, Jupiter is a guest at the top of your solar chart, reaching the peak, and it helps you shine! Your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation grow and develop. Your talents and skills are recognized now like rarely before. Much of the hard work you’ve put in begins to pay off and reaps the rewards – or at the very least, it’s recognized.
You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle. You could find yourself in a position that truly suits you, and you take great pride in your work.
There are many possibilities for how this manifests, depending on your situation and current life stage. For some, more prestige or a higher social standing is part of the picture. You can be quite charismatic in a position of authority or responsibility. Advancement in achieving an important goal can occur at this time. There can be significant enhancements to your reputation or public image.
Perhaps most importantly, you have more faith in your goals and aspirations during this period of your life.
Although it’s an excellent period for expansion and recognition on a professional level–and you should take advantage of it–choose your projects carefully. It’s best to take on only what you can handle. Watch also for gossip or mishandling of information–be wary of situations that could easily get blown out of proportion or misunderstood.
For the most, it’s a booster period for your reputation or position. It can be a time of significant progress in the outer world, a fortunate change in status, and/or increased recognition.
People more readily or openly recognize your accomplishments now. Creativity, love, self-expression, or hobbies could connect closely with your career during this period. You feel more excited about achieving your longer-term goals and ambitions.
It’s undoubtedly a time when believing in yourself, your competency, and your ability to take the lead opens up opportunities for you. Love matters–or pursuing your joy more heartily–can encourage you to reach your highest potential. It can be a time of promotion or a position of leadership. Or, your creativity comes to the attention of the public. You might also bring more creativity to your work or be recognized and esteemed for your art or hobbies. Aim to expand your reach.
In May when this transit begins, there can be initial challenges balancing your relationship and career goals. Some obsessiveness with or in a partnership could affect your work and possibly your reputation. New people in your life may stimulate you to question your current status, life path, or relationships. The challenge is finding a balance between the two worlds instead of pushing or rebelling against either. Avoid ego-based decisions. Know what you truly want. Free yourself of those things holding you back from success, but do so prudently.
Fortunately, in June especially, your expectations, both of your finances and the people in your life, even out. You’ll see definite improvements as you let go of unhealthy expectations and pressures. You more readily find support and guidance, and you might stumble upon a helpful person or project at this time that can change your life.
It’s important to make time for your responsibilities. Taking the lead can benefit you tremendously now.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar tenth house, from May 16th to September 4th, 2023, and then from December 30th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024.
Leo Quick Take: You’re embracing your ambitions, long-term goals, and responsibilities. It’s a strong period for taking the lead, managing your life, and improving your reputation and/or career.
Jupiter in Taurus puts this planet of abundance and expansion in your solar ninth house and harmony with your sign, dear Virgo. From May 16th, 2023, until May 25th, 2024, you’re in a wonderfully refreshing cycle.
You feel more optimistic and confident about managing your life during this trend that lasts a little over a year. You seek to live life more fully. Your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure are developing, growing, and expanding. You feel more courageous and spirited as you sense there is more “out there” for you to learn and take in. This transit is a happy one, although it can be subtle since it runs so smoothly! We may not always notice when things are purring along well.
At this time in your life, you’re less likely to sweat the small stuff. You see the broader perspective on life and generally feel supported so that more minor inconveniences don’t stress you out quite as quickly.
Your positive outlook is notable during this cycle. It’s wise to aim to learn as much as you can now in preparation for the next cycle, running from May 2024 to June 2025, that puts your career on center stage. You’ll want to prepare yourself!
Your views on life in a broad sense are changing, growing, and maturing. Connections with faraway cultures, people, or a wider knowledge base can open opportunities to grow personally. Teaching and sharing knowledge can be in strong focus. It’s a good–perhaps even ideal– 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 and “life” experiences (adventures, travel, new activities, contacts with others of a vastly different culture than yours, and so forth) are likely to emerge.
During this period, you might have the opportunity to reach a broader audience. You might learn a new language or take on other exciting studies.
You get exceptional support from family or loved ones or are particularly inspired to grow, improve, explore, discover, and move outside of your comfort zone. It’s an excellent time to feel both motivated and inspired. People and experiences outside of your norm can affect or inspire you.
You’re likely to enjoy opportunities to expand your experiences and impress others. Education can be transformative now, leading to meaningful opportunities. Picking up new interests and expanding your knowledge can profoundly impact your home or personal life. Doing home life differently, moving out of a neighborhood, or expanding your family/home can figure strongly.
In May when this transit begins, there can be initial challenges, especially if you’ve been over-controlling your work, routine, and schedule or if these things have become more demanding. You crave more time and energy to spontaneously explore the world around you, make contact with others, and expand your mind. However, you need to find a balance so that you can work and get your life into order, including your health, and let go of fears that might prevent you from enjoying more spontaneous activities.
Fortunately, in June especially, a partner could play a vital role in helping or motivating you to bring more order into your life. You might find ways to strengthen your legal position in a business or venture. You want to expand your reach, but you are also realistic about what you can do.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar ninth house, from May 16th to September 4th, 2023, and then from December 30th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024.
Virgo Quick Take: You find more meaning, humor, and happiness in your life, in general, and you’re in fabulous shape for learning, sharing, publishing, and promoting.
From May 16th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024, there is a wonderful, refreshing focus on your private world or intimate life – a possible deepening of a relationship, or an increased understanding of your inner workings–a boost in your relationship with yourself!
Your intimate life is set to enlarge and expand, bringing you more joy and new discoveries during this period that lasts just over a year.
You learn to embrace inner change to feel more empowered during this cycle. There are more chances to find support, financial and/or emotional, but you should be wary of living on credit and borrowing too heavily from the future.
It’s a time to grab opportunities that help you to feel empowered and on top of your life. Conversations and musings are deep and lead to fruitful discoveries. Sexuality is richer. There can be benefits and support coming your way through or from others, whether it’s about a refund, an easier time acquiring loans or mortgages, an increase in a partner’s income, or you inherit something valuable.
Combining your resources, talents, or money with a partner can improve your financial outlook. You might also benefit from managing others’ resources and talents without the “teaming up” part–it all depends on your current circumstances.
These matters can relate to your communications, education, or transportation since Jupiter rules these things in your solar chart. There may be a metamorphosis pertaining to your mindset, communication skills, daily affairs, relationship with siblings or neighbors, learning, studies, or connections. For some, it’s about a significant investment. You may tune into your intuition or psychic tendencies. You could be more frequently thinking about transformation, death, turning points, finances, and intimacy during this trend.
Potential negatives: Taking on too much debt or relying too heavily on others for support. Be wise when/if lending and borrowing.
Otherwise, it’s a strong period for opening yourself up to others and for feeling more confident about your emotional depths. This is a period when you can quite successfully purge yourself of some of your inner demons, guilt, and buried psychological problems. It might also be a significant period for sexual discovery and depth.
While there can be some reality checks, it’s a potent period for psychological growth.
In May when this transit begins, there can be initial challenges due to a Jupiter-Pluto square. There can be a significant shift in your expectations from–and attitudes toward–romance, entertainment, children, or creative expression. There could be obsessiveness due to fear of losing someone or something, such as a relationship. New ways of expressing yourself could pressure or strain a current relationship.
Suppose you’ve been holding on too tightly to ideas of yourself or a relationship, which has prevented you from exploring your options and fully enjoying yourself. In that case, you might decide to make permanent changes now. You may be torn between wanting more or less from a relationship. There can also be a strong need to release yourself from debts and obligations.
Fortunately, in June especially, you’re in shape for making changes to your current lifestyle that will benefit you for years to come. You enjoy a greater ability to make plans, mainly related to health, diet, and work, with a special focus on balance. You can better manage your time as you get a handle on your jobs or routines.
This is also an excellent period for sensible fitness and health programs. A more balanced approach to your diet and habits boosts your confidence on an inner level.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eighth house, from May 16th to September 4th, 2023, and then from December 30th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024.
Libra Quick Take: Your worlds of intimacy, sharing, finances, and support get a fabulous boost, and you can feel more empowered during this Jupiter transit.
From May 16th, 2023, until May 25th, 2024, Jupiter moves through your partnership sector, dear Scorpio. During this transit, your relationships receive a boost of forward-moving energy. This cycle helps you succeed in partnership or improve your relationship status/situation.
This influence lasts for a little over a year. Your partnerships, relating abilities, and powers of negotiation grow and expand during this timeframe. New partnership opportunities can arrive now, or the chance to bring fresh energy to an existing committed relationship emerges.
Relationships you enter into now are generally successful and happy — they are mutually beneficial. Sometimes, this transit absolves an existing partnership, but if this is the case, it will likely come as a relief or a “blessing in disguise.” Meeting someone more suitable for you at this point in your life may be a reason for this, although it’s important not to blindly jump into something new since you could suffer from some feeling that the “grass is greener” elsewhere.
Your ability to get along with others improves as you are especially willing to compromise, and you are more appealing or companionable than usual.
The positive potentials of this transit are many, and they depend on your current life path: You can negotiate more successfully and, if applicable, win in legal matters. Legal matters or challenging relationship problems from the past might resolve, and settling more casual disputes amicably can figure strongly.
You may find yourself taking on the role of consultant or advisor, or you could benefit from help from the same. Good publicity may come your way. If your career has you working with or before the public, you can safely expect increased popularity now, particularly if you do counseling or negotiating in your job.
Relationships and partnerships benefit from expansive, warm energy, difficult relationships may be absolved, and/or you enter into successful new ones during this period. It’s a relationship-boosting period!
Jupiter rules your sector of finances, self-worth, valuables, personal resources, income, and sense of security, and any of these things tie into partnerships during this time. A partnership could form that’s related to money or security, or the relationship is characterized as secure, grounded, practical, or derives from a powerful financial connection.
A partnership may strengthen, or a significant person in your life can help make you feel more secure. Instead, you may be enhancing your income or sense of security and stability to improve relationships. Loyalty and security are strong themes in a close relationship.
Shared beliefs, interests, and ideologies might be a focal point in a close relationship during this cycle. 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. Many of you attract people who want to help, who are on your side, and who take a strong interest in you.
Potential negatives: You might attract partners more concerned with freedom than pairing or who seem extravagant or full of themselves. Troubles could be associated with an existing partner’s extravagance or desire for increased autonomy. Be careful to avoid sugarcoating or closing your eyes to problem areas that could grow exponentially now. Watch for having your blinders on with people.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy an improved social life during this cycle. You learn much through your experiences and interactions with a significant “other.”
In May, when this transit begins, there can be initial challenges largely revolving around home and family, as well as close partnerships and relationships. You could struggle to balance family with other relationships. It’s a time to recognize an attachment to certain traditions and ways of living that have restricted growth in relationships. It’s a time to better understand your need for freedom and your fear of what you might lose in the process. Dealing with fears, purging, and letting go is necessary to make good decisions.
Fortunately, in June especially, pairing up with someone to get a job done is very satisfying. A partner or a relationship can inspire you to reach new heights or to learn a new skill. A more disciplined or concerted effort with creative efforts, hobbies, or romantic pursuits benefits you greatly. For some, a fun relationship moves to a new level. Negotiations can be successful, and establishing reasonable boundaries improves a connection. Partnering up can be beneficial.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar seventh house, from May 16th to September 4th, 2023, and then from December 30th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024.
Scorpio Quick Take: The world of close relationships, one-to-one connections, or partnerships expands, takes on more meaning in your life, and benefits you greatly during this Jupiter transit.
With your ruler, Jupiter, in Taurus, this planet of abundance transits your solar sixth house.
From May 16th, 2023, until May 25th, 2024, your work, daily routines, and health endeavors expand, improve, and grow, dear Sagittarius.
This influence lasts a little over a year, and it’s a time when your work projects or duties expand or you have increased employment opportunities. You can be so confident in your ability to take on projects and endeavors, however, that you overload your plate, so do watch for that.
You find more joy in your work (as long as you don’t overload), self-improvement endeavors, and taking care of your health. If you provide a service to others, it is likely to prosper, primarily because you’re enjoying it more! If applicable, you are incredibly successful in hiring people to work for you, and your working environment will likely improve. It can be easier than usual to find employment now.
You may get a new job during this cycle or significantly improve an existing one. Work tends to be very available to you. You focus more intently on what matters to get ahead, and recognition for your efforts may be forthcoming. Still, this cycle is less about recognition as it is about the enjoyment of your duties or daily life.
You are proud of how useful you are to others during this cycle. The more integrity and honesty you bring to your services, the more “payback” or rewards you can expect to receive. Health may prosper now, and medical procedures or programs, if necessary, are more likely to succeed. Of course, this isn’t something to take for granted since there are always other concurrent transits that can refine this one. There may be an inclination to put on some weight, for example, if you don’t watch your sweet tooth. On the other hand, a greater love of food might instead lead to a booster hobby.
You bring fresh and original ideas to your work and the services you offer. During this cycle, you might experience overload or initial magnification of problems surrounding work. There is a tendency now to focus on the details of your work, and you might sometimes feel a little overwhelmed with monotonous tasks. Again, the key is to avoid overdoing it.
Your work might involve more services or assisting others during this cycle, and for some, health-related or healing professions can be attractive. You can feel motivated to improve your life by pursuing a healthier lifestyle or through your daily routines, habits, chores, tasks, services, and work.
Challenges may occur sporadically during this period with 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. Responsibilities elsewhere can sometimes conflict with your stronger desire to work, take care of business, and attend to health and wellness.
However, for the most part, this is a good time for winning appreciation for what you do or your skills, enjoying what you do, finding work, and working relationships.
Personal confidence, identity, and self-image may closely tie into work and health during this period. Your services to others can be exceptionally profitable. Notably, your work ethic stands out as particularly powerful at this time–you can be committed to putting in the work! This year, you’re more inclined to identify strongly with your work, health, habits, and routines. Helping others helps you!
In May, when this transit begins, there can be initial challenges related to taking on too much. You have compelling personal interests and, now, a surge in desire to improve your work, daily routine, and/or health, and it’s hard to fit everything in! To move forward more authentically, happily, and freely, some projects may need to go, you may need to delegate some of your work, or for the sake of your health and well-being, you need to free yourself of a secret that has been weighing you down. An overly hectic or chaotic schedule can take its toll on you, and you need to let go of demanding work, projects, and obsessions to take better care of your health. It’s time to let go of the need to control or push yourself too hard. Aim to get a handle on your priorities.
Fortunately, in June especially, work and home life combine in wonderful, productive, and constructive ways. Family can be supportive of your work, or your job works well around your family life so that you can enjoy both more thoroughly. Better structures and boundaries allow you more freedom to pursue your goals. You’ll find that moderation is the primary key to happiness now!
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar sixth house, from May 16th to September 4th, 2023, and then from December 30th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024.
Sagittarius Quick Take: This is a time of expanded and/or improved work, chores, routines, health pursuits, and habits. You more fully enjoy your everyday life during these periods.
When Jupiter is in Taurus this planet of abundance transits your sector of joy, dear Capricorn.
From May 16th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024, your creative, playful, and romantic side is expanding, developing, and blossoming. It’s a powerful time for self-expression, new forms of entertainment, and romantic explorations.
This influence lasts just over a year. Your focus is now on having fun, enjoying life, and expressing yourself in freeing, rewarding ways. Your romantic and creative worlds grow, and your desire to express your unique side and creativity increases. As you learn to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, you are more willing to take some personal risks along the way!
Romantic opportunities tend to abound during this cycle, or chances to kick back and have fun, express yourself in unique ways, and pursue hobbies and entertainment are abundant. Creatively speaking, this theme fills you with ideas and plans for realizing a dream.
This can be a fertile time on many levels, including physically and emotionally. Romance can blossom. Note that this influence is associated with casual dating and exploring romantic possibilities more than binding or committed relationships.
This enhancing, supportive influence is also strong for self-confidence and personal popularity. In fact, your creative, romantic, or leisure pursuits define you more and more this year–they enhance your self-image and image to others. You identify with these things or with your creations, including children, if applicable! You’re more often following your heart.
Potential challenges: Excessive emphasis on, or attention to, having fun to the detriment of other life departments. Throughout this transit, you may need to come to a balance between engagement with romantic and creative needs and the rest of your life.
You might also need to juggle worries about money or resources with your stronger focus on entertainment, love, or leisure in May. You may be holding on a little too tightly to certain possessions and attitudes, and as you begin to feel a strong desire to break free and try new things and ways of expressing yourself, there can be some tension. It’s a time to examine what’s preventing you from enjoying your life and taking a few creative risks. Aim to deal with fears and ties to things or situations that are no longer healthy for you.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel supported and confident. Others gravitate to you, and your appeal skyrockets.
Fortunately, in June especially, you enjoy a healthy confidence and good judgment for making long-term plans. Relationships can be smoother, perhaps as you put more effort into communication or better structure your personal interests to accommodate other pursuits and connections. Reasonable expectations help your life across the board, but especially with current projects, creative pursuits, and relationships.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fifth house, from May 16th to September 4th, 2023, and then from December 30th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024.
Capricorn Quick Take: Entertainment, hobbies, pleasure, romance, and creativity expand in your life, and you pursue your joy more heartily during these periods.
While Jupiter is in Taurus, this planet of plenty is transiting your home and family sector, dear Aquarius.
From May 16th, 2023, until May 25th, 2024, you expand and improve your personal life. You are more confident about your family, living arrangements, and living conditions. These areas of life blossom, gain momentum, grow, or improve.
This influence lasts over a year, and it’s a time when you are comfortable with your position and may build loving and secure connections with others. There can be special attention to the comfort and beauty of your home or a stronger desire to connect with your roots. You can also possess a more remarkable ability to bounce back from problems in your personal life.
While this is a domestic transit, relationships with anyone you feel incredibly connected with emotionally can benefit.
Your inner world, family life, domestic activities, and domestic arrangements blossom, develop, grow, or expand. Relations with family can be delightful, pleasant, enjoyable, and supportive.
There are various ways this energy can play out, depending on your current situation: For example, there can be a move to a new home, likely a bigger one, or there can be new purchases of real estate or significant items for the home. Current living arrangements or conditions improve. Some of you can get a mortgage or support to expand your home base. The family itself can grow, or there might be an addition to your home. Some might take on a roommate, for example, or bring more friends to their homes. Others might pool resources with a partner and move in together. Entertaining in the home can be emphasized if it makes you happy. Otherwise, you can experience a stronger sense of peace and privacy in your home life.
During this phase, you could spend more time with family or at home. You could be on the reclusive or introspective side as you build up your inner strength or improve your home base. Fortifying your energy and emotional reserves can figure strongly, and it’s most helpful!
Generally speaking, increased positive energy comes to your domestic life, and you might put long-standing problems with your family behind you. To make the most of this influence, be careful about overextending yourself with home improvements or larger accommodations beyond your means.
Your personal life tends to overshadow your professional or material activities during this cycle. Relationships with family can improve significantly now, although pre-existing problems might initially magnify, motivating you to handle them.
This can be an excellent time to set up a home business or home studies. On a more psychological level, confidence in yourself and feelings of security increase during this period.
Potential challenges: Excessive money spent on home improvement, too much emphasis on the home to the point that other areas of your life suffer, or some unwillingness to expand your horizons. Avoiding or escaping responsibilities may be a problem from time to time. You may wish to please too many people, but overdoing things leaves you exhausted, as it seems there is never enough time and energy to meet all your needs.
However, with some moderation, this time can be most rewarding. For the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported. It’s a time of nest-feathering and a strong period for psychotherapy and purging as you are willing to look at the root of problems.
More power and resources can be available to establish yourself, primarily through a home or property, but also for long-term business or learning endeavors/projects. Your friends become more important or more like family. You might gain more security and safety through a special friend or group.
In May when this transit begins, there can be initial challenges that prompt you to let go of unhealthy attachments and attitudes to move forward and take advantage of opportunities to grow and improve. There can be conflicts between domestic demands/needs and personal goals/needs.
Fortunately, in June especially, there can be nice prospects involving your income, family or home life. Bringing more structure and order to your life, particularly with spending and personal things, can benefit you greatly. It’s a powerful time for organizing your things! You have fantastic cosmic support for home and family life, security, comfort, and finances.
Still, it’s also a fine time for coming into your own, seeking out more from life while asking what you can do to make life more rewarding. The desire to make yourself and your loved ones more secure motivates you, and it’s your reasonable expectations that help you achieve what you set out to do.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fourth house, from May 16th to September 4th, 2023, and then from December 30th, 2023, to May 25th, 2024.
Aquarius Quick Take: This is a time of expanded and/or improved domestic life, home and family matters, or personal space and inner world. You’re making wonderful improvements in living arrangements or conditions and your personal life.
From May 16th, 2023, until May 25th, 2024, you expand your personal interests, mind, and connections. You are ready to take on big projects! Your confidence in the future is powerful during this cycle, dear Pisces.
With this trend, lasting a little over a year, your communications increase and expand. Depending on your current situation and unique personality/circumstances, this influence can play out in several ways: You enjoy a more remarkable ability (and desire) to express yourself, and your interests grow. You might develop a mental interest or project more fully this year.
You can experience good fortune with vehicles, transportation, and the communications industry, or this good luck comes from siblings, classmates, or neighbors. You are sharper and more perceptive, and others are more receptive to your ideas. New opportunities to communicate can open up to you.
It can also be a busy, exciting, and rewarding period for learning. Your curiosity grows, and the chance to boost your skills or knowledge can emerge. If applicable, you might go/return to school or take some courses.
Potential challenges: Taking on too many daily activities, communications, new interests, and learning endeavors or studies can be a problem now. It’s all too easy to lead a scattered, chaotic life, so try not to overload your plate. There can be a real tendency to want to do it all, forgetting your limits with time and energy. Taking on too many projects or becoming too entrenched in details can cause problems.
However, for the most part, you should expect to enjoy more opportunities through your communications and contact with others during this cycle.
You’re finding your voice and more fully enjoying what you’re doing, learning, teaching, and sharing. You might find that you’re busier locally. Your thinking is more upbeat, positive, and forward-looking, and so is how you express yourself.
In fact, this is an excellent time for improving your communication skills and general attitude or mindset. As you focus more on communicating effectively, other areas of your life improve.
For example, reaching out or making warm gestures to others more often can improve your relationship with yourself and your bonds with others. Meaningful opportunities can arise through meetings, courses, teaching, and connections you make in the neighborhood or through siblings. More community involvement could be satisfying. If they exist, problems with siblings or neighbors could be put to rest now, although they might magnify initially for problem areas to come out into the open and finally reach a resolution.
There can be increased communication with siblings, classmates, and peers in general during this period. You could find that transportation or communications options now available make life a little more enjoyable. Your commute is better, or devices that connect you with others improve. This theme often coincides with new wheels, rides, phones, or other devices that open up new or improved channels for connecting and getting around.
Sometimes, a busier or more mentally engaging lifestyle conflicts with your need for rest and downtime. However, with some moderation, you’ll find ways to achieve a balance.
You may find it easier to express thoughts, feelings, or intuition in words at this time. Others may frequently turn to you for your wisdom and advice, or people are more interested in your feedback and input.
This can also be a time when your career or duties involve more connecting, commuting, or communicating.
In May, when this transit begins, there can be initial challenges that require you to re-evaluate your goals and prioritize them. You might learn that freeing yourself from some burdensome issues or secrets you’ve been keeping to yourself can be liberating, but be selective regarding who you share yourself with. You might also be dealing with insecurities or fears that have been holding you back from saying what you feel and going after what you truly want. These need handling so you can express yourself more freely and joyfully.
Fortunately, in June especially, pouring your energy into a special project can be consuming in all the right ways. The focus is on order and organizing, which can be very satisfying. You might put a project or venture into motion. You’re also seeing the value of a more balanced approach to personal growth.
