Again,we are all set to visit the next transit of Jupiter in the sign of Scorpio on 11th Oct, 2018, there is an obvious curiosity to know how this transit is going to impact human life on Earth. So, here is my take or understanding of this transit. At the outset, I may repeat that events in our life happen as per collective impact of all planets. One planet transiting in any sign neither going to make you King nor Beggar, but this one planet’s transit will certainly contribute its mite into the collective impact. Hence, it is important to know what Jupiter’s contribution in the total.
Also, Jupiter is the biggest and most expansive planet among all. Its transits last for about 13 months. This is a considerably long time in comparison to other transits we have of Sun, Moon, Mercury & Venus. So, if a big planet like Jupiter is transiting in Libra for 13 months, it is going to make some impact to Human Life. This article is little effort to get an idea of impact.
Also during 2019, nodes will also change their signs for next 18 months. All these are big transits which last for more than an year at least. We will surely look into the details of those transits in 2019 but we have to understand that Jupiter’s results will be impacted by other transits and vice-versa. Everyone is impacting each other. Hence, we are also going to be impacted accordingly. None is too big to have all impact and none is too small to have no impact. We have to see the complete picture.
So, let’s 1st look at all the important factors to understand this transit –
Jupiter’s last transit – Somehow my approach in Astrology is about experience. So, if a book says something about a planetary position but person having that planetary position didn’t experience what book says then after doing in-depth analysis and seeing all possible reasons, I will prefer to be on the side of Person rather than Book as what he is saying is about live experience. We can’t deny that. So, before looking into what Jupiter in Scorpio will do, it is important to see if Jupiter in Libra transit passed the test? Because if our lives were not impacted by Jupiter in Libra then there is very less chances that Jupiter in Scorpio is going to do much. If you ask me the most profound image of last 1 year when Jupiter was in Libra is when Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un shook hands. It was the defining image of Jupiter in Libra. A moment which none of us expected when Jupiter entered in to Libra. As Libra is sign of peace and diplomacy and Jupiter is knowledge, even politicians had some knowledge or awareness of importance of peace. At the time when Jupiter was in Virgo, India-China was heading towards a major conflicts and during the year both sides have calmed down and peace prevailed. At individual Level, Libra is sign of relationship and Jupiter is knowledge or awareness, so Jupiter in Libra gave us knowledge and awareness of a meaningful relationship. We learnt the importance of a balanced relationship. Even if people went through relationship conflicts or separation, it was nothing but awareness that their relationship was not balanced one. Social Justice and balanced approach remained the theme throughout the year. At individual level, Jupiter was transiting my 12th house/Libra and my business (Libra) grew with more foreign connections. I became more aware of a balanced relationship after listening to the people suffering in relationship. I remained spiritually inclined and looked towards Osho for every single guidance in my life. As we can see that things have turned the way Jupiter in Libra. Hence, we need to be aware of what is about to come with Jupiter in Scorpio.
Jupiter - Jupiter is the most benefic planet and it represents all the auspicious things like Knowledge, Wisdom, Law, Guru, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Expansion of Things and Elderly People. For a girl, Jupiter also represents Husband.
Scorpio - Scorpio is the 8th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things and energy related with 8th house of horoscope like Sudden Events, Secrecy, Dark World, Occult Science, Research, Inheritance, Serving Others, Taxes etc. Besides these things sign of Scorpio also represent transformation, means changing the whole nature upside down. This is one sign which is favorite of every Astrologer, because it has maximum secrets, so every astrologer gets maximum scope of researching. This is sign about which no one can tell with precision that what will happen to the planets in it, as it is sign of secrecy itself. Wherever Scorpio falls in your chart, you may have had biggest challenges in making things related with that house more stable. Scorpio is also one of those unique signs which has 2 rulers, i.e. Mars and Ketu. In Western Astrology, Pluto also co-rules Scorpio. All this makes Scorpio a chaotic sign. Scorpio consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatras, i.e. Vishakha, Anuradha and Jyeshtha.
Jupiter in Scorpio - Wherever Jupiter goes, it brings the knowledge and wisdom to that sign/house. It makes us learn things related to that sign/house. As it taught us about relationships, being diplomatic, about peace in Libra, now it is time to be aware of dark world of secrets.
- My 1st interpretation of Jupiter in Scorpio is that Occult and Mystical side of life is about to go through a major expansion. When we say occult then it is not only Astrology. It includes Numerology, Palmistry, Tantra, Black Magic or any hidden knowledge. Human knowledge is limited and human ignorance is vast. Whichever thing is away from human knowledge is occult and mysticism. Whatever you don’t know is occult for you. You may have read Bhagvad Geeta 100 times but if you didn’t understand the true message of it then Geeta is still occult for you. So, as we go through Jupiter in Scorpio, we will see many new researches and findings coming to the knowledge of humanity in any mystical field. Humanity can be more and more inclined towards occult side of life. Best thing about Rahu or Jupiter in Scorpio is that they can give knowledge of many different streams of Occult simultaneously. So, people can be interested in learning about Astrology, Numerology, Palmistry etc simultaneously. Not to forget that Scorpio also represents Psychology, Surgery and things like chemical. So, there will be vast researches in every branch of knowledge and we will come to know about many new things in coming one year.
- Although, Jupiter is in friendly sign of Mars but Scorpio is a sign in which no planet is happy. It is because of Scorpio’s basic nature of changes and chaos. Just think if you can be happy when things around you are chaotic or changing frequently. If not, then how a planet will be stable in such circumstances. Then Jupiter represents expansion. It expands the things related to the house or sign it is in. So, Jupiter in Scorpio can actually expand the changes in life and people can go through big changes in things related to the house where Scorpio is falling in their chart. But as Jupiter is in friendly sign, eventually every change will be benefic. It is a guidance that we should not resist any change now for next 1 year. Just flow with the change.
- Then Jupiter is also our morals & belief system etc and Jupiter going through Scorpio, a sign of changes means that people can go through a complete upside down change in their belief system, morals, religion or spirituality. We can see many religious conversions or people leaving one Guru or Sect and joining exactly opposite one.
- Jupiter is Spirituality too and in the sign of Scorpio, it will show that people will become spiritual through occult side of life. Actually, nothing makes a person more spiritual than occult. When you realize that nothing is in your hands and things are managed in sky anyways then you have no other option but to become spiritual. As Jupiter represents Gurus too, Occult and Mystical Gurus can get prominence in next 1 year time.
- Finally at individual level, Jupiter represents family life, marriage, children and husband. It also rules 2 houses of everyone’s chart. Hence, as Jupiter goes through Scorpio, people can face major changes in their lives related to their family life or things related to the houses it rules in their respective chart. But again, eventually every change will prove to be beneficial. So, flow with the change. Actually, Scorpio should also represent life itself. Ever changing and never stable.
- Other traits of Scorpio like Controversies, Scandals, Sex, Underworld, Chaotic Events will also see a rise with Jupiter transiting there and people will engage in such activities based on overall strength of their chart.
Jupiter’s Aspects – We will only cover the house Jupiter will transit as per the Ascendant as the biggest impact will be there. But we need to be careful about Jupiter’s Aspect during this transit. Jupiter will aspect 5th house, 7th house and 9th house from its house of transit and impact those houses. As I said, Jupiter’s aspect is always benefic, even if Jupiter is debilitated at exact degree. So, we need to keep an eye on where it is aspecting from Libra in your chart. We won’t be able to cover it here as this article would never end then but I can tell you in brief that Jupiter’s 5th house aspect is aspect of Education. Means wherever Jupiter aspects 5th from its place in your chart, you treat that house as where you want to learn more about things related to that house. 7th house aspect is about relations. Here, Jupiter finds the people with whom it can share the knowledge of the house it is transiting. 9th house aspect is of higher education. So, wherever Jupiter aspects at 9th house from its transit, you want to gain higher education related to that house or want to follow things related to that house as your religion. Also, I will write a separate article on Rahu-Jupiter joint impact between Oct, 2018 to Mar, 2019 and there we will be covering aspects.
Dashas – As always, this transit of Jupiter will be more influential on those people who are going through Jupiter or Mars/Ketu (Lords of Scorpio) Dashas. It doesn’t mean that for others it won’t do anything. 13 months is long enough time to give some results.
Jupiter Return – This transit will also be important for those who are born with Jupiter in Scorpio, regardless of running Dasha. This will be a Jupiter Return for them which happens once in 12 years. All the results of karaka & house ruler things of Jupiter, as discussed above, will come to the fore during this transit of Jupiter Return - https://www.astrosaxena.com/jupret.
Jupiter in Birth Chart - Jupiter's position and dignity in Birth Chart will have as important role as Dasha of Jupiter in giving the results of Jupiter. So, also keep that position and dignity in mind.
Transit Period – Jupiter will transit into Scorpio sign between 11th Oct, 2018 to 5th Nov, 2019. In between, Jupiter will enter in Sagittarius for about 22 days between 30th Mar, 2019 to 22nd April, 2019. But remaining period it will remain in Scorpio only. So, it is more or less a Jupiter in Scorpio transit.
Retrograde Period - Jupiter will be retrograde from 11th April 2019 to 11th Aug 2019. This means that Jupiter will be closer to Earth during this time. So, the results stated herein will be felt with greater intensity during this time. At that time, we will have a look at it with separate article on Jupiter retrograde transit.
Nakshatra – As Jupiter crosses in to Scorpio, it will be transiting over Vishakha, Anuradha and Jyeshtha Nakshatra. Jupiter has been in Vishakha for most part of the year. Hence, we are aware of Jupiter in Vishakha results which we are experiencing right now. We will receive additional results of this transit through position of Lord of each of these Nakshatras in Chart, i.e. Jupiter itself for Vishakha Nakshatra, Saturn for Anuradha Nakshatra and Mercury for Jyeshtha Nakshatra. Also, the basic trait of all these nakshatras will be expanded as Jupiter transits into these nakshatra. Like, Jupiter transit into Vishakha can make person a Counselor or Adviser for others or can think about changing things related with Jupiter, Jupiter transit into Anuradha can make a person follow his heart’s desire. Jupiter transit into Jyeshtha can expand ego or proud feeling plus ability of being fair and people management. So, this is the way Jupiter is going to expand the traits of nakshatra ver which it is transiting. One common theme for all these nakshatras is Occult & Mysticism which makes Scorpio such a mystical sign.
Other Planets in Scorpio – Likewise, if a person has planet/planets in Scorpio in birth chart then Jupiter transiting over that planet/planets will expand the traits and characteristics of planet/planets. Now, the exact result depends on the planet, its dignity and conjunction/aspects on it. So, we can’t cover everything here. Also, during the year, other planets like Sun, Moon, Mercury & Venus will transit through Scorpio and will conjunct transiting Jupiter. So, that will also have its impact on Jupiter’s results here.
Mars-Ketu Position – As Scorpio is ruled by Mars-Ketu, their position in birth chart plus transit will impact the results of Jupiter in Scorpio transit.
Saturn’s Transit in Sagittarius – Last but certainly not the least, we need to keep an eye on Saturn’s transit. As Jupiter transits in Scorpio, Saturn will come back in Sagittarius in Oct, 2017 and will transit there till Jan, 2020. So during Jupiter’s transit into Scorpio, we need to be aware of the house where Saturn is transiting. It is because Saturn is already creating big stress in that house and now that house lord Jupiter is also going 12 signs/houses away in Scorpio which indicates a loss and changes of the related to the house where Saturn is in Sagittarius in your chart during transit. So actually, the biggest change of Jupiter in Scorpio will be seen in the house where Sagittarius falls in your chart but the things related to the house where Jupiter transits in Scorpio in your chart can become the reason behind such changes. But again, change is inevitable and eventually beneficial.
As I said, I will write another article about joint impact of Rahu-Jupiter transit - https://www.astrosaxena.com/raju201819 between Oct, 2018 to Mar, 2019. So, this article is just the 1st in series. We have to read it with Rahu-Jupiter joint impact article plus Saturn’s transit in Sagittarius article and another major conjunction that is going to happen in 2019, i.e. Saturn-Ketu in Sagittarius from Mar, 2019 to Jan, 2020. They all will impact simultaneously. This remains a chess game where you can’t neglect even a soldier moving forward. Everything is in addition.
Now, the main course.
This article won’t only tell how Jupiter will impact for all Ascendant and Moon Sign people, but it will also show how Jupiter’s role is switching for each ascendant sign and therefore why making a generalise opinion on a planet or sign may not be a prudent thing to do? As I said, this transit is going to be more fruitful for those people going through Jupiter/Mars/Ketu Mahadasha but it doesn’t mean that it will have no impact on others. We all go through Antar dashas and Pratyantar dashas of all the planets throughout year, so this transit will show its impact in those time periods. Also, for slow moving planets like Jupiter, Rahu, Ketu and Saturn, we don’t have to depend on Dashas. Because of their slow movement, they always impact our life in given time.
Please see results of this transit from Ascendant and Moon Sign both. Predictions from Ascendant Sign will show what will actually happen and predictions from Moon Sign will show what our mind desires and how mind will react to such events. Another thing is that when Ascendant and Moon sign both point towards one event that event is bound to happen.
So, let’s begin –
Aries Ascendant or Aries Moon Sign – For Aries people, Jupiter rules over 9th house (Sagittarius) of religion, higher learnings and 12th house (Pisces) of Spirituality, Charity and Hidden Secrets. So for Aries people, Jupiter is more a knowledge and travel based planet. Now, Jupiter will transit through 8th house (Scorpio) of Marriage Benefits, Occult, Mysticism, Inheritance and Serving Others etc. 1st of all it shows that life path can go through a major change. Person’s belief system, morals and values can go through a major change. They can be all about getting more and more knowledge of occult and mysticism. They will realize their religion and spirituality through occult and mysticism. They will spend their time and money in dealing with changes in life or in understanding of occult. Any far distant travels can bring big change in their lives. They can get spiritually inclined and may get into things like meditation etc. They can take higher education related with any research oriented subject. They should be pro-active while travelling to avoid any sudden event or accident.
Taurus Ascendant or Taurus Moon Sign – For Taurus people, Jupiter rules over 8th house (Sagittarius) of Occult, Mysteries & Other People Money and 11th house (Pisces) of Higher Cause, Gains and Income. For Taurus people, 2019 can bring biggest of change. This is something I covered in my article on a prediction related to India - https://www.astrosaxena.com/India2. It is because Saturn is already transiting 8th house of changes for them and now 8th house lord Jupiter will be in Scorpio in 7th house. This indicates some major change in life and the reason behind that change may be a relation/marriage/partner or business. They can expect a big change coming in their relation/marriage either ways. It looks like a good time for business as 11th house lord of gains is transiting through 7th house of business but they can go through a major change in relationship matters. But as I said, eventually it is beneficial.
Gemini Ascendant or Gemini Moon Sign – For Gemini people, Jupiter rules over 7th house (Sagittarius) of Business, Other People and Marriage and 10th house (Pisces) of Career, Work Environment. So, for Gemini people, Jupiter takes shape of a Career Oriented planet. Now, Jupiter will transit through 6th house/Scorpio of debts, diseases and enemies. This is certainly not a good time for relationship as Saturn transiting 7th house/Sagittarius is already creating stress in relationship and now 7th lord Jupiter is going in 6th house of disputes. This shows that their relation/marriage can land into big conflicts. 6th house and 10th house are anyways houses related with separation. It also says that issues related with health or debts can grow. They can get Jupiter related diseases like Fat, Arteries and Liver related or any illness which is hard to diagnose. They need to be pro-active to maintain a good health. Although, it is not a good time for relationship but occult, mysticism can become an important part of their daily work life. It can be that either they take Legal/Medical or Occult/Research as their profession.
Cancer Ascendant or Cancer Moon Sign – For Cancer people, Jupiter rules over 6th house (Sagittarius) of Daily Routine Life, Jobs etc. and 9th house (Pisces) of Religion and Long Distance Travels. So for Cancer people, Jupiter takes shape of a Service and Education related planet. Now, Jupiter’s transit in 5th house/Scorpio shows that they can get into some love relationship but it can be the most instable or chaotic relation. They can be very secretive about that relationship. They can be inclined towards higher education of occult or any other research oriented subjects. It shows some ailment related with stomach or any ailment that is hard to diagnose can come up for them. It also shows disputes and obstacles are coming in relation. As Jupiter is 9th house lord and transiting through 5th house, both houses related with change in Career, it shows that a major change in Career can come up in 2019 for them. If they are interested in education of research subjects or in professions like teaching and counselling then it can be the best time ever.
Leo Ascendant or Leo Moon Sign – For Leo people, Jupiter rules over 5th house (Sagittarius) of Education, Creativity & Children and 8th house (Pisces) of Marriage Benefits, Occult and Mysticism. So, for Leo people, Jupiter takes shape of planet which can give Marriage Benefits and great knowledge of Research Subjects. Now, Jupiter will transit through 4th house/Scorpio of home, home land and Mother. It shows focus can shift to home or mother this year as there can be chaotic events of changes happening there. It shows someone staying at home and studying about occult or research matters because Jupiter is in 4th house/Scorpio and aspecting 8th house/Pisces. So, occult is activating from both sides. Focus can be on buying a home or vehicle. They should be careful while driving to avoid accidents. It shows a time when their belief system can go through a big change and they can focus on spiritual stuff due to involvement of Moksha Triangle.
Virgo Ascendant or Virgo Moon Sign – For Virgo people, Jupiter rules over 4th house (Sagittarius) of Home, Mother and 7th house (Pisces) of Marriage, Relationship and Partner. So, for Virgo people, Jupiter takes shape of a Family Oriented planet. Now, Jupiter will transit through 3rd house/Scorpio which can push them to have their own business in occult or research field. People can accept them as Teacher, Guide or Guru. Their communication can become like a Guru. Their direction of efforts, hard work or actions can go through a major change. They can be spending most of the time away from home land. They can be travelling with partner too. Usual care should be taken to avoid accidents. Relationship can go through a major change and also home life or peace of mind. They may find peace of mind in research activities.
Libra Ascendant or Libra Moon Sign – For Libra people, Jupiter rules over 3rd house (Sagittarius) of efforts and actions and 6th house (Pisces) of daily routine jobs and obstacles. So, for Libra people, Jupiter takes shape of an action oriented planet. Now, Jupiter will transit through 2nd house/Scorpio. It shows some big changes are coming in family and wealth matters. The whole effort or action in this time can be made in making things stable in family or in matters of wealth. Family environment can be disturbed due to debts, diseases or conflicts. They can seek help of occult to make things stable in family. Giving a loan may not be a good idea for them. Transformation in family can be related with their younger siblings or Husband or Children. In positive terms, if they can act out of their knowledge, skills & interests and help resolving obstacles of people then it can generate goo wealth to them.
Scorpio Ascendant or Scorpio Moon Sign – For Scorpio people, Jupiter rules over 2nd house (Sagittarius) of Family, Values and Speech and 5th house (Pisces) of Education, Children and Ancient Texts. So, for Scorpio people, Jupiter takes shape of knowledge and beliefs related planet. Now, Jupiter will transit through 1st house/Scorpio. Any major transit in 1st house always indicates some new beginning in life path after completing the cycle of transits in all 12 houses. Jupiter transiting 1st house is always a good transit as hope and optimism comes to self. It shows that their whole identity, recognition or personality can go through a big change. They can be seen as Teacher, Guide or Guru by people or a Guru can come in their lives too. Some mystical event can bring change to whole life path. They can stay away from family in this time. Jupiter transiting 1st house always brings Fat to body. So, they need to be careful of this. But overall, this shows a major change, which Scorpions are so used to, in their whole life path. This time can project them as Guru or Guide to people. It also shows that wealth of 2nd house, knowledge/education or love relationship of 5th house can come to them. Overall, a good period if person is ready to flow with the change.
Sagittarius Ascendant or Sagittarius Moon Sign – For Sagittarius people, Jupiter rules over 1st house (Sagittarius) of Life Path, Self and Life Purpose and 4th house (Pisces) of Home and Mother. So for Sagittarius people, Jupiter takes shape of a home and life path related planet. Now, Jupiter will transit through 12th house/Scorpio. Any major transit in 12th house is always the transit of closing times. Person will complete many tasks pending from a long time or he will just decide to leave the effort. This is so because when Jupiter enters the 1st house after one year, he can make new beginnings in life. To start something new, you need to 1st finish the pending tasks. This transit can bring a foreign travel to them or travel to Spiritual Places. This can also make them focus on occult and spiritual side of life. But if overall chart doesn’t support such actions then they can very well spend the same time in escapism, alcohol, drugs or spending lavishly. Best use of this time can be in spiritual and occult pursuits like meditation as Moksha Triangle is again activating. They can find a Guru or Teacher in spiritual/occult field. Mostly, it is a transit where person may spend most of time in foreign lands or in spiritual/occult studies. As 12th house still represents hospital and jails, they must take appropriate actions not to land at such places.
Capricorn Ascendant or Capricorn Moon Sign – For Capricorn people, Jupiter rules over 12th house (Sagittarius) of Spirituality, Foreign Lands & Foreign Companies and 3rd house (Pisces) of Efforts, Travelling and Skills. So for Capricorn people, Jupiter takes shape of an action and spirituality or travelling related planet. Now, Jupiter will transit through 11th house/Scorpio of gains, desires and entrepreneurship. It shows that your gains and income may expand during this time but there will remain instability in matters of manifestation of your desires. Sometimes you may feel like accomplishing your desires and sometimes you may feel the lack of it. This Jupiter transit can push you towards Entrepreneurship as Jupiter is impacting all houses related to business, i.e. 3rd house, 7th house and 11th house. Jupiter can send them away from home land because it rules 3rd house & 12th house and also it is transiting 11th house, 8th from 4th house. Here, change or transformation can be related to younger sibling or relation with them but at the same time Jupiter’s aspect on 3rd house/Pisces can safeguard younger sibling too. As it is going 8th from 4th house, they can change their home, there can be some changes in real estate matters too plus there can be a worry related with Mother’s health. Their income may come from foreign lands. They can serve people through their knowledge of research oriented subjects. Good transit for financial gains but there will be issues in family life and with relatives.
Aquarius Ascendant or Aquarius Moon Sign - For Aquarius people, Jupiter rules over 11th house (Sagittarius) of Gains, Income & Desires and 2nd house (Pisces) of Family, Wealth and Speech. So, for Aquarius people, Jupiter takes shape of a wealth and desires oriented planet. Jupiter will transit through 10th house/Scorpio of Career, Work and Public Image. It is a good transit for Career as Jupiter there in 10th house can expand their gains from career and work. They can get recognition for their work. But their public image may go through a major change. May be they may take a brand new career which can bring a change in their public image. They can be seen as Guide or Teacher at work. People can naturally come to their advice. Transformation here can be in matters of family life and wealth matters. They may feel insecurity in family and wealth matters but Jupiter’s aspect on 2nd house/Pisces will ensure that any such change may eventually be the benefic one for both Family and Wealth Matters. This transit can push them towards Career in occult. This transit can bring changes in Father’s position too but again change will be for overall benefit and they will be able to gain from Father or people in Authority. Good transit for career matters but family life can see a major change.
Pisces Ascendant or Pisces Moon Sign - For Pisces people, Jupiter rules over 10th house (Sagittarius) of Career, Fame and Reputation and 1st house (Pisces) of Self, Life Path and Life Purpose. So, for Pisces people, Jupiter takes shape of a path and purpose oriented planet. Jupiter will transit through 9th house/Scorpio of higher education, religion, philosophy, Gurus and Teachers etc. A transit totally dedicated to higher education of occult and mystical or any other research oriented work. They can find a Teacher or Guru who can teach them about occult, mystical or any other matter of higher education. This is so because when Jupiter has next transit in Sagittarius in 2020, they would be ready to take up a career of teacher, guide and counsellor by that time. So, this year will be all about drowning in ocean of occult. They can also travel to a long distance for purpose of higher education. As 9th house is house of loss of career and Jupiter is transiting 12th from 10th house, this transit can bring an existing career they may have to take up a new career. They still need to take care of their own health and Father’s health. The whole life path & career path can take a direction towards occult, mysticism and higher learning. I don’t think there is much to add when things are so apparent.
In the end, I can relate Jupiter in Scorpio to only one picture, i.e. Buddha sitting in calm state under Bodhi Tree when Demon Mara and his accomplices tried to create a chaos in Buddha’s penance. This is what Jupiter in Scorpio is all about. There will be transformation, changes and chaos around us but we need to remain in calm state like Buddha. Please Meditate. It can help us in this chaos.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
