Jupiter, the “Greater Benefic,” (meaning it is also the most beneficial of all the planets) serves the purpose of bringing truth to light, where it has a karmic disposition for shifting principles and thoughts of society, in order to pave the way for new endeavors. Venus, the “Lesser Benefic” is able to bring a stance of materialism and superficiality or love that exists outside of the confines of more worldly positions. As such, Venus rules Taurus and Libra, whereas Jupiter rules Sagittarius. In the Tarot, Jupiter is the Wheel of Fortune card.
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…usually by revealing the brutal truth.
Jupiter enables each sign in the Zodiac, as it passes through, the ability for it to overcome its primary obstacle. Where Sagittarian individuals search for truth, Scorpio is encumbered with mystery, Jupiter’s resolve is to reveal the secrets of what that mystery truly is. Although Jupiter isn’t nearly as karmic of a Planet as Saturn is, do right by Jupiter and it will do right by you.
Jupiter in Scorpio Winding Down & Jupiter in Sagittarius
Jupiter is currently in Scorpio and will remain until it shifts positions into Sagittarius on November 8th, 2018 at 8:38 AM EST. The position of Jupiter during this time has been rather complicated, especially in the ways that it has impacted established businesses, foreign entities, as well as shifting global consciousness to the point that it needs to have, in order to achieve a stronger position for seeing how various shifts in the world are taking hold.
Jupiter in Scorpio is an experience of passionate, profound, earth-shattering depth and incomparably potent power.
