Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system is associated with good luck, along with long-distance travel, higher learning, philosophy, and religion. When Jupiter enters a new sign, which it does about once a year, it brings that luck to a new area of your chart.
Jupiter entered the sign of Scorpio on Tuesday 10 October 2017 CST (Central Standard Time) and will stay in that sign until it enters Sagittarius on 8 November 2018 CST. If you have access to your natal (birth) chart, you can see exactly where Scorpio is in your chart, and figure out where good luck, opportunities, and maybe gifts may manifest for you over the following year.
Having a copy of your natal chart and knowing which astrological house/s the signs are occupying allows you to take advantage of the good luck that may be available to you. An article I wrote last year when Jupiter was in Libra, demonstrates in more detail why knowing your natal chart gives you so much more information than just your star (sun) sign.
Like all the planets though, Jupiter has its good and not so good points. Jupiter can be linked to excess and if Jupiter traveling in the sign of Scorpio makes challenging contacts (aspects) to planets in your natal chart, you may find that it tends to amplify situations during that transit (the time that Jupiter is making that contact to your natal planet).
When you know what astrological house Jupiter will be in, you can check the list below for what you can expect from Jupiter over the next 13 months.
In the first house, you can expect to be the beneficiary of general good luck during the year. You may come across to others as being optimistic, generous, outgoing, and are likely to come across as having a big personality. You may want to watch what you eat during this transit though, as you may be prone to putting on a little weight (the 1st rules our appearance and Jupiter does like to expand).
In the second house, you may be the beneficiary of additional money or possessions that are gifted to you. You may also be given the opportunity to increase your earnings or your feelings of self-worth. You may find this is a year that you spend more money than usual on possessions, particularly big-ticket items. You may need to watch that you don’t go overboard on spending, as Jupiter does like to do things on a grand scale.
In the third house, you are likely to find yourself exploring your local neighborhood more. You may be more involved in the local community, perhaps doing something philanthropic. Your general attitude and tone when communicating with others are likely to be positive and big picture orientated. Subjects such as philosophy and religion may interest you more at this time. You may benefit in some way from siblings or neighbors.
In the fourth house, you may find yourself moving to a larger home, or extending your current home. Some may find considerable profit via real estate deals. You are likely to enjoy your time spent in your home and with your family more during this period. Your family may expand in some way (birth, marriage), and it would not be unusual to receive some benefit or gift via a family member, particularly your parents.
In the fifth house, you may find that you are expressing your creative side more during this year. Time spent on activities you enjoy and socializing, in general, are likely to be more frequent. As this is the house of children, pregnancy is possible during this year and could result in twins or more. For those looking for love, there may be many people looking to date you. You may need to watch your tendency to go to excess, particularly in areas like gambling as you may have an exaggerated belief in your luck.
In the 6th house, you may find that you are doing extremely well in your work field, and some may receive a promotion or move on to a bigger, better job. Relations with co-workers should go very well. Your day-to-day routines may be changed because of new learning and philosophical or religious commitments. Heath is generally good at this time, although, there may be a tendency to overindulge and put on weight this year
In the 7th house, relationships (both business and romantic) are likely to expand and develop during the year. You may benefit from or attract a wealthy or generous partner. For some, there may be many admirers all seeking your attention. Some may seem to “marry up” or develop a relationship with someone who they consider “out of their league”. Some may become involved with someone from a different country or culture.
In the 8th house, you are likely to benefit in some way via other people. This may be through your partner and/or your partner’s increased income. You may benefit from taxation, financial institutions, or via an inheritance. The sharing of resources and possessions with others may be easier and more harmonious at this time. Issues related to death, sex, or taboo topics may be easier to discuss and overcome during this year.
In the 9th house, the desire to travel is likely to be incredibly strong, as both the 9th house and Jupiter are associated with long-distance travel. You may also find that you benefit in some way via foreigners or via an overseas interest. Those that are involved in legal matters are likely to have a successful outcome during this year. There is likely to be an interest in the bigger picture in general, of expanding your knowledge, and those involved in education and higher study are likely to find this a good year.
In the 10th house, you are likely to benefit in some way related to your career. You may find that you are promoted, get to travel more for work or receive more appreciation and recognition during this year. You may have a mentor or authority figure that chooses to take you under their wing at this time and expand your prospects in some way. Those in the public eye are likely to be well received and portrayed in a positive light.
In the 11th house, you are likely to expand your circle of friends, and you may benefit from friends or groups during this year. This need not be monetary, you may find yourself just being extremely grateful for the friendship that you have in your life. Networking is likely to be more productive and rewarding for you during this time. Your dreams and ambitions may tend to be bigger than usual, and your optimism is likely to see you pursue your dreams with more gusto.
In the 12th house, you are likely to overcome some psychological problems during this year. Fears and secrets that have held you back may be released at this time and free you up in a lot of ways. You may find that you have more luck overcoming debilitating habits or deep-seated feelings of guilt. Some may find a philosophy or religion that brings them a sense of peace and contentment.
