The planet Jupiter is often called 'The Great
Beneficent' because this expansive planet brings a huge burst of energy to
whatever part of the chart it's placed. But really it's not that Jupiter is
good or bad, it is just MORE. Sometimes, even most of the time, that's a good
thing. But not always. More is not always better. When Jupiter enters a new
sign it enters a new part of your chart and so a new area of your life gets
highlighted. I guess we'll all get to find out more on October 10th, 2017 as
Jupiter finally leaves its year-long visit in Libra and grandly makes its
entrance into Scorpio. Many of you are already feeling this new energy even if
you don't know what it is.
We are feeling a bit edgey because Scorpio
is nothing like Libra. Scorpio is all deep, dark and mysterious. This is the
sign after all that rules that which is hidden from view and not always
socially acceptable. And speaking of that which is not socially acceptable,
remember that Scorpio rules sexual activity. We have a planet of expansion
entering an area of sex - hum
I wonder how that will play out. For
sure, look for some kind of sex scandal to once again rock the nation. All
issues around sexual expression come out to play. How do we express our need
for intimacy? Watch for issues around transgender community to once again show
up on the evening news. Discussions of sexual activity will be taking place
across the nation. This is an extreme sign, not given to moderation. On a
personal level we will all be lifting up that rock to see where our sexual
attitudes come from and how we feel about them.
Many people will begin
seeking therapy. It takes courage to look at what is not working in your life
and make a commitment to changing it. Scorpio is nothing if not fearless. It
will pursue its goals with a single-mindedness that puts military generals to
shame. So be very aware of what your goals are as you will tend to renew your
focus on achieving your heart's desire with all the force of a heat-seeking
Scorpio is all about secrets. This is the sign that rules the
CIA and secret organizations after all. Look for secrets to start coming out
both in our personal life and in our nation's life.
With Scorpio we
always want to get to the bottom of things. This sign helps us face the truth
no matter how uncomfortable that might be. We go to an extreme to fix whatever
is broken and we do not always recognize that moderation might be more
appropriate. There is an intensity to Scorpio that cuts both ways. Nothing
half-way please. Energies here deal with the underworld, financial means and
our sense of power. We can go on a power trip that is not easy to recover from.
We all have to be especially careful where we put our energies because those
energies can take over our life and is that what we really want? Awareness is
everything when dealing with the unconsciousness.
If we do not deal
with Scorpio with awareness then be warned the dark side of Scorpio can and
will come out. We may see more violence show up on the news as people feel
these dark energies come up and yet refuse to acknowledge them or deal with
them. Instead it bursts out in an act of violence to release the tension. We
can see this show up at home or on the international stage. This powerful sign
demands to be dealt with but not everyone knows how to do that in a positive
As Jupiter is associated with higher mind and religion and it
combines with Scorpio's passionate belief in its own rightness, we may see more
religious ferver sweep the nation. The dark side of Jupiter is
self-righteousness. More religious organizations begin putting forth their view
of what it is God wants with a certainty that leaves no room for discussion.
And money. Did I mention that Scorpio rules other people's money? It
also rules taxes, insurance and inheritance. It is no coincidence that we are
hearing talk of a new tax plan as Jupiter makes its entrance into this powerful
sign. Because Scorpio is so transformative we may see a major overhaul of our
tax system instead of a few tweaks. And make no mistake there can be hidden and
secretive things in any tax changes that may not stand up to the light of day.
Pay extra special attention to your money and how you use it. Where we spend
our money really shows what is important to us. What is your spending saying
We have a wonderful opportunity with Jupiter entering this
sign to make some major changes in our life, to face our fears and transform
them. But it doesn't come for free. The more we are willing to work the more
benefit we receive. It is up to each individual to decide what they wish to
transform in their life and create a plan to achieve it.
Look for Part
II - How Jupiter will affect each sign - coming soon.
