Astrology forecast (October 11, 2018 – November 5, 2019): Jupiter transits Scorpio

Jupiter, also known as “Guru”, is personified as a teacher, judge and religious leader. When strong in the birth chart of a person, it gives growth, wisdom, good luck, education, children, and intelligence. It makes one generous, spiritual, and humanitarian. It also indicates inclinations towards teaching, publishing, consulting, and advisory roles. When Jupiter is weak in a person’s chart it can cause issues with the law, luck, religion, morality, children, and education, along with health problems with the hips, liver, pancreas and gallbladder — and issues relative to the house where Jupiter rules Sagittarius in a person’s birth chart.

Jupiter represents husband in a woman’s chart and children in both a man’s or woman’s chart. Depending on its strength, Jupiter can provide support relative to husband and children. When Jupiter is weak in a woman’s chart it can indicate suffering or lack of support relative to her husband and children. When Jupiter is weak in a man’s chart it can indicate suffering relative to children and weakness relative to morality, education and religion.

With this awareness we can recommend the two-fold planetary remedies to strengthen Jupiter (if Jupiter in a person’s chart is a favorable planet) or to propitiate or honor Jupiter (if it is an unfavorable planet) for more success with husband, children, and education, and other areas relative to the house where Jupiter rules Sagittarius in a person’s chart.

 

For the Aries, Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Aquarius, and Pisces rising signs, Jupiter becomes a favorable planet and can be strengthened by wearing a yellow sapphire gemstone as a ring or pendant, and by using yellow colors in one’s wardrobe and furnishings in one’s home.  

 

It should be noted that for a short time, from March 29th, 2019 until April 22nd, 2019 Jupiter will also spend time in the adjacent sign of Sagittarius, which is a favorable transit — and then it returns to the sign of Scorpio.

From April 10th, 2019 until August 11th, 2019 Jupiter will be in retrograde motion. For the most part there is no need for concern about this retrograde motion. This is only a visual phenomenon as it occurs due to different speeds of the planets in relation to the earth.

Retrograde planets, however, can cause adverse effects if that planet is unfavorable for a particular rising sign, or if that planet comes into contact (by aspect or conjunction) with another planet that is an unfavorable planet for that person.

From July 22nd to August 31st, Jupiter will be stationary at 20 degrees, which is likely to cause stress for the Taurus, Cancer or Capricorn rising sign persons — as Jupiter rules their eighth, sixth, and twelfth (inauspicious) houses, respectively.  These rising sign persons, with a 20-degree rising sign, or with any planets in Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces at 20 degrees are especially vulnerable to health, financial, relationship and professional issues.

 

For the Taurus-born person, Jupiter rules the inauspicious eighth house of vulnerability, transformations, setbacks, obstacles, delays, disappointments, and even death-like experiences. Avoid wearing a yellow sapphire gemstone or using yellow colors —  and help children, students and religious leaders on Thursdays.

 

For the Cancer-born person, Jupiter rules the sixth house of debts, disputes, legal and health issues, divorce, bankruptcy, fire, theft, cheating and false allegations against a person. Avoid wearing a yellow sapphire gemstone and using yellow colors —  and help children, students and religious leaders on Thursdays.

 

For the Capricorn-born person, Jupiter rules the inauspicious twelfth house of losses, expenses, separations, isolation, depression, hospitalization and imprisonment. Avoid wearing a yellow sapphire gemstone and using yellow colors —  and help children, students and religious leaders on Thursdays.

 

Every one of us can nurture and nourish the guru within by taking time each week (particularly on Thursdays) to help or spend time with one’s spiritual guide or teacher. Having some sort of spiritual practice on Thursdays such as yoga, reading spiritual literature, performing morning prayers, or listening to chants for Ganesha (the remover of obstacles) are all great ways to connect each week with Jupiter in your chart.

In general when Jupiter is strong in transit and strong in the natal (birth) chart, it is helpful and blesses the person with long-term gains and good fortune. The positive results are enhanced for those who have strengthened their natal weak planets including Jupiter (through gemstone and color therapy, and/or a mystical pendant from India). Afflictions are reduced to some extent for those who propitiate (honor) the unfavorable planets (through chants and charities).
