As Rufus Wainwright sings in his hit song, Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk, “Everything it seems I like is a little bit stranger, a little bit thicker, a little bit stronger, a little bit harmful for me”. This embodies the Jupiter in Scorpio energy beautifully.
When Jupiter moves into a new sign it has the power to create some pretty interesting changes in society that are felt for about a year before it moves on to a new position in the zodiac. In Scorpio it is possible we will see a sexual revolution, a new take on human sexuality, and certainly a shift into the macabre and taboo. As with any significant planetary transit, I always believe it is important to take a look at the world the last time something similar happened. Looking back to 2006 we can see some interesting events, themes, and social norms the last time this expansive planet was in Scorpio. First looking at some of the more popular fashion trends of that year we see the heavy use of stripes and straps, both symbolic of fetish culture. We also the “rise”, if you will pardon the pun of low rise jeans and the exposing of things that became famously known as a whale tail. In music we listened to fairly Scorpio themed songs like Sexy Back and Promiscuous. In media, we experienced the tension and taboo of depicting Mohammad in cartoons, as well as the controversial and very scorpionic movie The Da Vince Code. We ended 2006 with the death sentence of Saddam Hussain followed by one of the most macabre and taboo viral videos of all time when his death was posted online. Prior to 2006 Jupiter spent most of 1994 in Scorpio, where we saw the rise of pleather, dominatrix style tops, grunge, vampire inspired creations from Chanel, Pulp Fiction, The Shaw Shank Redemption, the first unisex scent from Calvin Kline, and of course the Wonder Bra. Interestingly enough, 1994 also brought with it the first Law Enforcement Guide to Satanic Cults. Of course, the majority of the video, which can be found on YouTube is riddled with inaccuracies, and is rather offensive to the Pagan and Occult Communities. However, 2006 brought some much needed light to those who follow the Old Ways, when a Military Chaplin changed is affiliation from Pentecostal to Wiccan. While the military did not fully support Pagans in the Military until the spring of 2007, Jupiter in Scorpio certainly set the stage for religious equality when it moved into Sagittarius.
So what should we expect this time around? For many in the world it is possible they will experience a sexual awakening and may come to set aside some of their own sexual inhibitions. We are also likely to experiences more public conversations concerning gender, sexuality, and reproductive rights and issues. It will also be interesting to see if Pluto (which co-rules over Scorpio with Mars), who lost his status as a planet in 2006 will return the elect of classified planetary bodies. We must also consider the heavy amount of detective work as well as exploring the mysterious energies of both life and death. With that being said, I would not be surprised if new and exciting archeological discoveries take place over the next 13 months, along with some fantastic leaps forward in world of physics. Perhaps this time around Jupiter in Scorpio will help bring more validity to metaphysics as the world between science and magick draws closer together. Even with all of Scorpio’s mysterious and magnetic energy, it is also powerfully healing. Our world, now more than ever, needs some of that healing. Of course healing through Scorpio can be challenging and painful, however it is necessary for growth. They always say it is the darkest before the dawn, and it is my hope that Jupiter’s time in Scorpio allows us to face that darkness without fear and open hearts.
Jupiter in Scorpio Horoscopes.
As always, I recommend reading your rising sign for greatest accuracy.
Over the next year as Jupiter moves through your 8th house, it helps you fully face your own mortality, and confront some of the darker aspects of your personality. This is also likely to be a particularly active financial period, and you will want to be on the lookout for people who want to invest in your future. If you are married or in a long term committed relationship, you may soon find that your partner will experience a boost in income. You may also come into money via a will or estate, though you may want to take this time to consider your own final will and testament.
This will be a sexy period for you, as you find your interpersonal and romantic relationships getting a major boost. You are likely to spend more time with a significant other, or get into a serious relationship. While you are typically not known to jump into relationships too quickly, this transit could give you a boost, and you want to make sure you don’t get too hot and heavy too fast. This will also be an excellent 13 months to make important connections, make deals, sign contracts, and combine forces with others.
Jupiter in your 6th house is all about getting your daily schedule an overhaul. You are likely to make some type of change in your health, either for the better or worst. So you want to make sure you watch your weight. Jupiter can be a bit indulgent and you want to be hyper vigilant with your diet. Use the Jupiter energy productively and get into a new exercise regime. Remember it’s a lifestyle change, not a diet.
Grab your paintbrush, pen, or musical instrument. This period will be particularly creative for you, and you will want to make sure you take full advantage of it. Jupiter here also has the ability to increase your sexual appetite, and you may find yourself “on the prowl” more than usual. Along with increased sexual energy, this will be a particularly fertile period for you, so if you are looking to start a family, this is a wonderful time to get that started.
Despite your social nature, this Jupiter transit will bring focus and attention to your home and family. Maybe it’s time to make some changes to your environment, or move all together. Use this energy to plan and host family or social functions in your home as well. Don’t forget to take stock of what is in your home, and clean house. As you will likely spend the next several months buying things for your home or apartment.
This period for you is all about opportunities to learn new skills, take a class on something that interests you, and reconnect with old friends and siblings. The next 13 months also promise to be a very busy period where you spend a lot of time travelling locally, having important conversations, and finding new ways to express yourself. Your ability to communicate will be heightened, and those around you will listen with intent ears.
What do you value most in life? What and who is important to you? These are the questions that you will be visiting over the next 13 months. When Jupiter moves into the second house it brings an expansive awareness of our values, as well as promotes productivity. This is also considered a fairly fortunate financial transit, where you will have the opportunity to both make and save money. However, Jupiter does rule excessiveness so you will also need to be cautious not to overspend or run up high lines of credit.
Ok Scorpio, Jupiter is finally in your sign after a 12 year absence. For you this transit is all about your own image, and taking control of how you identify yourself. Maybe it’s time to make a change in your personal style, or a revamp of your reputation. You have the opportunity now to reinvent yourself, don’t waste the opportunity. At some point, over the next year Jupiter will pass over your Sun, and when that occurs your personal energy and sense of purpose will become clear. Think of it as a heavy dose of B-12. However, much like Gemini, you too will need to be cautious with your weight during this period.
The next 13 months will be fairly quiet for your Sagittarius, which makes this the perfect time to get some much needed relaxation. When Jupiter moves through the 12th house it is best to work behind the scenes, doing planning, and work privately. This is also a particularly sensitive time for you emotionally, so use this time to take extra care of yourself, and heal. I would recommend learning more about meditation, taking time to give yourself an in home spa day with bath salts and oils, or treat yourself to a staycation.
The upcoming Jupiter passage through your 11th house will prove to produce a very social period for you. It is a time where you can flex your global muscles and really get out into the world and make a difference. You’re circle of friends is likely to expand during this period, as well as your hopes and dreams. What you should be asking yourself now is what difference can I make in the world? What goals have I put on the back burner, and should now get back on course doing. Enjoy the expansive year ahead and make plans for your future.
This will be a banner period for your career and reputation. There is nothing you can’t accomplish under this transit when it comes to advancing yourself. You are also likely to find yourself in high favor with authority figures, supervisors, and bosses. This is the year you could ask for a raise, apply for a new job, or improve your own reputation with your peers. Whatever you chose to do, it will be difficult to stay out of the limelight, so be aware that all eyes looking towards you.
For the next 13 months Jupiter will sit in your 9th house, which is probably one of the happiest places for Saturn to be. Here you will able to expand both your mind and your horizons. You now have the opportunity to go back to school, do a great deal of traveling, research a foreign culture, or even explore new aspects of your own spirituality. Maybe it’s time for you to try a new church, read about a faith you’ve been interested in passing. However, you choose to deal with Jupiter here, you are bound to find a new meaning to your own life.
