Intuitive, Magnetic, Self-Reliant
October 10, 2017 – November 8, 2018
Jupiter is the largest of all the planets in Astrology. It is known as the “greater benefic,” meaning it is also the most beneficial of all the planets. Jupiter is responsible for the expansion, growth, and optimism in our lives. It symbolizes good luck and fortune, and is associated with the higher mind, philosophy, truth, and religion. Jupiter has a reputation for blessing us with luck and abundance, and this could come from its ability to give us a larger lens through which we can view the world.
It makes for an interesting — and complex — cosmic combination when outgoing Jupiter moves into inward-looking Scorpio. The normally optimistic outlook of the giant planet is tempered by a need to consider the complications that could arise from our actions. While this energy may take our greatest hopes and dreams down a notch, it does offer a much-needed reality check that helps us get concrete results.
When Jupiter is in Scorpio
Jupiter is the planet of expansion, and Scorpio is the sign that deals with sexuality, birth, death, and power. So when Jupiter is in Scorpio, these topics could bubble up to the surface and take a front row seat in our minds. Our fears could become exaggerated during this transit — but this can be Jupiter in Scorpio’s blessing. We are being given a chance to confront the things we’ve previously ignored so we can make necessary adjustments.
Jupiter in Scorpio could be a time when a spark is reignited for something we abandoned long ago. We’re being encouraged to consider what we desire in the depths of our hearts, and are reminded that success is ours if we put everything we have into whatever we pursue. Between Scorpio’s magnetism and Jupiter’s good luck, the world truly is our oyster when these two powerhouses come together.
Scorpio is a deeply emotional sign that is concerned with intimacy and our innermost feelings. Jupiter’s time in this sign doesn’t just encourage us to embrace these feelings, it wants us to expand upon them. This transit not only helps us get in touch with our own emotions, but we may develop an emotional closeness with others like we’ve never experienced before.
The one downside to Jupiter in Scorpio is the possibility of going overboard. Moderation doesn’t come easily to Jupiter or Scorpio. So when the planet of “more, more, more” and the sign of “can’t get enough” come together, the line between enthusiasm and obsession could become very thin.
Jupiter Retrograde in Scorpio
Extroverted Jupiter takes a walk on the introverted side when it turns retrograde. Jupiter normally advocates for idealism, forward momentum, and new opportunities. However, when it takes a backward trip through the sky each year, we’re being encouraged to slow down and ask the tough questions about where we are and where we’re headed.
So, during Jupiter’s retrograde through the sign of Scorpio, we can expect to dig deep and uncover what is and isn’t working in our lives. Are we doing the things that feed our souls? Are we acting in alignment with our values? Are we living up to the goals we set for ourselves? While we may not like some of the answers we come up with, Jupiter Retrograde in Scorpio helps us see exactly what we need to change to truly transform our future.
If you were born with Jupiter in Scorpio
“I create my own luck” should be your tagline! While it’s your magnetism that helps you attract opportunities, it’s your shrewd business sense and unwavering commitment that brings you the most success. And because of your secretive nature, you do well in environments where privacy and confidentiality are important.
Your gift of attraction extends beyond your professional life. As someone with their Jupiter in Scorpio, you possess a charm and inner strength that draws others to you. You know how to use your gift of intuition to get what you want, giving you a certain degree of social power.
No topic is off limits for those born with their Jupiter in Scorpio! You don’t shy away from discussing or learning about things that others would consider taboo or forbidden, because you want to get to the bottom of just about everything. Psychology, sexuality, life and death, and the occult are just a few topics you enjoy sinking your teeth into.
The pairing of Jupiter (the king of abundance) and Scorpio (the queen of fixation) in your chart could mean you overdo it at times. Work, power, love, sex … you go all-in. By focusing this passion and intensity into other areas of your life, you can reap huge rewards.
