Transit of Jupiter in Virgo in 2016-17.

So, this is the time of year again when we are waiting for Jupiter’s next transit. As I did little bit of study of Astrology in last few years, I realized why earlier people used to say that during a particular time of year their life used to take a shift and it used to happen every year. They were ignorantly referring to Jupiter’s Annual Transits.

So, Jupiter is now ready to leave Leo and move into next sign of Virgo on 11th Aug 2016 and will stay there till 12th Sep 2017. So, a stay of about 13 months. In between this period, Jupiter will be retrograde within Virgo from 6th Feb 2017 to 9th June 2017. So, let’s find out what all we can expect in this transit of Jupiter.

1st let’s look what Jupiter, Virgo and Jupiter in Virgo means and other things to be looked after along with this Jupiter’s transit – 

a. 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.

b. Virgo - Virgo is the 6th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents almost all the things which are represented by the 6th house of horoscope like Debts, Diseases, Obstacles, Serving the under-privileged, Service Life, etc. Besides this, Virgo represents analytical or critical skills of people, being perfectionist and healing abilities. Virgo's basic representation is the lady coming in boat with wheat and herbs in her hands. So, Virgo is basically a sign of healing. Virgo consists of 2 and half nakshatra. i.e. Uttara-Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra. Virgo's lord is Mercury.

c. Jupiter in Virgo – Jupiter and Mercury are not natural friends. Hence, Jupiter doesn’t really enjoys in Mercury ruled signs, i.e. Gemini and Virgo. But that doesn’t prevent Jupiter from providing things to us as it is most benefic planet. It is just that it takes the role of safe-guarding us against unpleasant events. At the same time, Jupiter is karaka of knowledge and wisdom, so wherever it will go, it will provide knowledge related to that sign. Jupiter is also expansion and in sign of Virgo, it expands our analytical skills and tendency of being perfect. Now, whichever house Jupiter is transiting as per your Ascendant, you will be highly analytical and perfectionist related to things of that house. You will go into every possible details related to matters of that house and try to fix it. And here is the main thing related to Virgo. It is a sign of taking actions. It is not about preaching and leaving matters as is. Now, we have to walk the talk as long as Jupiter is in Virgo. Jupiter will expand our abilities to take actions related to the house where it is transiting. So, there is a huge chance that next 1 year is going to be highly rewarding for people as we will be action oriented. We will analyse the issue in detail, find the way of perfecting it and then we will take the action. So actions wise, this is going to be highly productive period. 

d. 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 Virgo 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. 

e. Dashas – As always, this transit of Jupiter will be more influential on those people who are going through Jupiter or Mercury (Lord of Virgo) MD/AD. 

f. Retrograde Period - Jupiter will be retrograde within Virgo from 6th Feb 2017 to 9th June 2017. 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. 

g. Nakshatra – As Jupiter crosses over Virgo, it will be transiting over Uttara Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra Nakshatra. We will receive additional results of this transit through position of Lord of each of these Nakshatras in Chart, i.e. Sun for Uttara Phalguni, Moon for Hasta and Mars for Chitra.  

h. Planets in Virgo in Birth Chart - Also, if you have any planet in Virgo sign in your birth chart then Jupiter will be transiting over that planet and will give results as per the signification and ruler-ship of the planet. Like, if someone is Aquarius Ascendant and Mars is in Virgo in birth chart. Mars rules 3rd and 10th house for Aquarians. So, Jupiter transiting over Mars will give results of 3rd &10th houses  and also of things Mars signify like Actions, Will Power, Brother, Boy Friend etc. 

i. Saturn’s Transit from Scorpio to Sagittarius – Last but not the least, we need to keep an eye on Saturn’s transit. During the next one year, Saturn will transit 3 times. Currently it is in Scorpio. In January 2017, it will move to Sagittarius. In June 2017, it will be retrograde in Scorpio. Finally in Oct 2017, it will re-enter Sagittarius where it will stay till Jan 2020. So during Jupiter’s transit into Virgo, Saturn will be hopping around in Scorpio/Sagittarius. We need to be aware of the houses where Saturn and Jupiter both are impacting during this transit as things related to those houses will most certainly happen. As Saturn is in Scorpio and Jupiter is in Virgo, they both will impact Taurus and Capricorn sign through aspects. So, wherever these 2 signs fall from your ascendant, events related to those houses will happen. Likewise, when Saturn is in Sagittarius and Jupiter is in Virgo, they both will be impacting Virgo. So, events related to house where Virgo falls from your Ascendant will happen. 

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/Mercury Mahadasha but it doesn’t mean that it will have no impact on others. We all go through Antardashas and Pratyantardashas 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.
