Life is about to take a rather steamy, passionate turn! Extravagant Jupiter glides into mysterious, focused Scorpio on October 10th, a place where it will remain until November 8, 2018. This is headline news as the gas giant hasn’t visited Scorpio in almost 13 years. This is going to create change for all signs of the zodiac, and the world stage too for that matter.
Everyone loves Jupiter because it’s the most optimistic and generous planet of the solar system. It’s known for its healing ability, not only on a physical level but a mental one too. Jupiter favors growth and expansion, urging us to go after the things that mean the most to us. It recommends study, travel and embracing new ideas along the way. So far, so good, right?
But every planet has a flip side, and in Jupiter’s case the problem is that we can become too optimistic. Too extravagant. Taking gambles that may be risky. So the key to working with its energy is to temper high-flying ideas with a good dose of logic (Mercury and Saturn are mighty good at dishing out rational thought).
Jupiter and the sign of Scorpio are not a true match either. How a planet “behaves” will be affected by its location in the heavens. Whereas Jupiter likes to be open, easy-going and expressive, Scorpio is an intense, more introverted place. It is known as the sign of the research scientist or detective because it’s all about focus and research, digging deep. So we will have this odd mix of intensity combined with a happy-go-lucky attitude.
However, this can work out beautifully. Our deepest emotions are found in Scorpio, especially those that deal with romance. The less-than-attractive ones, like jealousy and obsession, are found here, along with resentment, sorrow and carrying a torch for an ex. Psychological issues of all kinds are part of Scorpio’s domain, and now this incredibly healing planet will be cruising through it.
As a result the next 12 months are well aspected for overcoming troubling emotions that may have been holding you back. Many people will look into meditation, reiki and shamanism as Scorpio is the house of the occult and New Age philosophy. If you are grieving the loss of a beloved person or pet, a reputable psychic medium might be able to put your heart at rest. Working with a therapist, or employing mindfulness meditation, is also a smart idea.
Scorpio also governs our sexuality….and the most abundant planet of them all is now in this sign! I think I’m going to buy stock in Victoria’s Secret because the next year promises to be quite libidinous. Just remember that one of Jupiter’s down sides is that it can cause us to be too extravagant. So if you’re looking for a partner who is marriage material, make sure that you’re not overly focused on the fabulous sex that takes place nightly between the sheets at your place. A good relationship needs more than soul-searing sex to survive, my friend!
The deep thoughts and emotions that we share with a lover are part of Scorpio’s domain. If you’ve been dealing with a lover who won’t open up and talk, or you’re afraid to be vulnerable, Jupiter’s presence in Scorpio can bring down the barriers and allow people to feel safe in expressing themselves. Likewise, if a relationship isn’t going to make it and you decide to move on, Jupiter will help you breeze into the future and find someone who’s more suitable, rather quickly at that.
Ancient astrologers recognized that when we share our bodies and souls in a relationship that we also end up sharing our financial assets. Therefore, joint assets and net worth are also part of Scorpio’s domain. If you’re single you’re not exempt! Everyone should be able to increase their financial holdings between now and November 8, 2018 as long as they’re willing to hustle.
Scorpio governs the kind of money we inherit, win in a court case or invest in stocks and bonds. It deals with retirement accounts, child support, royalties and bonuses. To a certain extent the money earned by self-employed people is here too. (Salaried jobs are governed by Taurus). Business ventures, patents and passive income can really take off now that Jupiter is in this part of the sky. Real estate investing is well-favored, whether you’re buying a home to live in or to use as a rental property.
Considering that Jupiter is in this sector, your ability to score Big Money definitely rises. Remember, however, that Jupiter has the effect of creating too much optimism. So don’t quit the day job because you’re absolutely convinced that a side hustle will be pulling in millions within 6 months. Avoid risky investments or get-rich-quick schemes promoted by online gurus. If someone suggests a business partnership, study it closely before agreeing to jump in.
The upside is that Scorpio is the detective of the zodiac, the researcher, the fact-finder. So even if Jupiter gets you all riled up about a potential money-making opportunity, you’ll be in an excellent spot to fact check first. The next 13 months are perfect for looking into a business idea that you have to see if there is true interest in the marketplace. You’ll be able to covertly snoop and discover what your competition is doing.
This is what everyone can expect now that Jupiter is in Scorpio, but every sign of the zodiac will have an additional dose of luck. For example, Geminis will experience Jupiter’s healing ability because Scorpio is their sign of wellness and getting fit. Capricorns can watch an online venture take off and meet a lot of people over the next year. Many Pisces will want to go back to school or travel around the world.
