This October Jupiter moves into the sign of Scorpio and Venus goes retrograde.
Jupiter is transiting Scorpio for over a year beginning on October 11.
Scorpions (the symbol for Scorpio) are hard to see. They quietly blend in with their environment or hide underground.
People with major planets in Scorpio tend to be quiet and shy on the outside, but have a lot going on inside. They are private, examining and intense.
Scorpions go places where nobody else goes: Caves, caverns, holes in the ground. They hide under rocks, logs or they quietly rest on trees or walls.
People with Jupiter in the sign of Scorpio are not afraid to explore. They can turn over rocks in order to examine what is hiding underneath. They do not back away from dark and creepy places if they have a reason for going there. They delve into the unknown.
They can become investigators, researchers, psychologists, spies, athletes, astrologers and healers. They are intuitive. Scorpio is a sign of deep transformation.
Scorpio is a water sign. In Scorpio the feelings are deep. Jupiter does well in water signs. He governs Pisces, is exalted in Cancer, and comfortable in Scorpio. While transiting Scorpio from October 11, 2018 to November 2019, Jupiter casts his favorable aspects on the other two water signs as well.
Jupiter wants to increase our knowledge. In Scorpio, Jupiter can reveal the things that people are unwilling to face, have forgotten, or simply didn’t know about. An assessment of truth is essential in order to restore and heal.
Rahu, the north node of the Moon, has been transiting Cancer since September 2017. Rahu is of the air element and very volatile. His transit through Cancer is causing many storms. Some storms are weather related and sometimes the storms are emotional reactions to current events.
Jupiter’s favorable aspect on Cancer from Scorpio will add some knowledge to events which Rahu has already manifested. Rahu in Cancer has brought many scandals regarding sexual abuse and the abuse of power. Jupiter in Scorpio can bring knowledge and healing around trauma. More scandals will continue to surface in regards to abuse of power. Jupiter in Scorpio can aid a healing process by increasing our awareness.
Jupiter and the influence of the water signs can bring more awareness and compassion to the plight of others. Empathy is a quality is much needed in the world.
Scorpio governs the twelfth house in the chart of the United States, a house that governs expenses. Jupiter has expansive energy. A negative expression of Jupiter’s expansive energy is inflation. With Jupiter in the twelfth house the risk of inflation is real.
Life is a process of transformation and change. We are born on this earth and we will all experience death one day. During this process we experience and adjust to the different stages of life. The eighth sign Scorpio, as well as the eighth house, expresses transformation and change. It is also a place of regeneration and healing. We want to keep ourselves fit so that we can live longer and healthier lives.
The energy of Jupiter in Scorpio lends itself well to health and healing. Exercise, movement, yoga, astrology, physical therapy and massage, will benefit by Jupiter’s influence. It is also good for psychological healing.
Jupiter counsels which makes this transit a good time for receiving advice, counseling, and diagnoses from experts and professionals.
You too are part of all that is. Cosmic reality is expressed on earth, and also within you. With the help of planets and stars, the universe sets up circumstances that will allow the soul to work out its karma.
October is a complex month astrologically, with several major shifts. Mars is in close combustion with the Sun the entire month, and there is a deep sense of change as Saturn and Jupiter both shift from retrograde to direct.
