Jupiter Moves Into Scorpio

Happy Autumn! Here is a link to an article, “The Medical Astrological Significance of Jupiter” I wrote for the Fall Equinox Edition 2017 of The Career Astrologer. https://www.facebook.com/opaastro/

  Jupiter ingresses into Scorpio October 10, 2017 until November 8, 2018.

A few thoughts on Jupiter as a background. Over the past 12 months or so Jupiter has been in Libra. There has been a lot of struggle with issues related to fairness, to the other and the opposite. With Uranus in opposition to this Jupiter there has been an emphasis on the need to break free from our rote manner of accepting the status quo. The question has been “What do I believe? What am I going to do about it?”. At times there has been too militant a stance, too far from center which is just as Libra does to understand the options. At its best Jupiter has forced us out of our comfort zone and into a place of discomfort but a discomfort that if we are to trust our own philosophy is necessary to grow, Jupiter.

We have been in the Air element of Libra where the possibilities for expansion and where our beliefs were put to the test was ideological and powerful enough to rally a movement for equality and progress of the common man. We took to the streets in protest!


Now with Jupiter in Scorpio we are pulled into the water element. We are being granted the opportunity for expansion into our own depths. For some this is like water on the flame, uncomfortable and fought against. For others it is a time of renewal, a time of regeneration. Scorpio is Fixed and Water. There is the need to go down deep and master it. You cannot avoid the process. The outcome is purification of the beliefs a life is built upon. It could be there has been avoidance of an issue that will come to the surface. Life will not ever be the same. Scorpio processes will root out the decay and through pain become brilliant. The Desire of the Soul is to grow and this is the transit to experience SOUL-GROWTH.

With Jupiter in Scorpio from October 2107 through November 2018 use this opportunity. I suggest getting your own natal chart and look to see which House of the Zodiac  Jupiter will be moving through. During the next 13 months you will be given the gift of Jupiterian expansion in the emotional body. If you embrace this process, descend and explore where you are wounded. In this area, represented by Jupiter’s transit, you could make great steps toward healing. This process will bring true SOUL change and will be something that will stick through this incarnation. LOVE YOURSELF.
