What Jupiter in Virgo Means For You 2015-2016
The King of the Gods Jupiter, is about to enter the sign of Virgo on August 12, 2015, and it’s staying there till September 9, 2016! To make sense of this event, let’s first consider the pieces separately before integration.
Jupiter is the planet of philosophy, meaning and faith. More intuitive than rational, it challenges us to make sense of our world by asking the BIG questions. Why am I here? Is there a God? What’s the point of existence? Jupiter brings a sense of perspective. Along with any perspective are interpretations based directly on the vantage point. If the world is construed as meaningless, nature will be interpreted along those lines. If we believe that God is within everything, the world is approached in such a way.
Jupiter is also about growth and opportunity, moving away from personal concerns to join more broadly with the world. Jupiter being a fire planet is passionate and fueled by a sense of mission. Jupiter characters include: politicians, clergy, philosophers, publishers, public speakers, missionaries, teachers and nomads. Anyone who attempts to change the world, those who quest far and wide to learn or teach about the world and those that are continually looking for answers are aligned with this energy. Please refer to the article “Jupiter’s Calling” on this web site for more information.
The Sign of Virgo
Virgo is the sign of competence, tackling the details of a job to do it right. It is about improvement, following through with a program or prescription to make the self or some project run smoother. Issues of health, refinement, sacrifice, moderation and humility are included. Virgo is an idealistic sign, setting goals to attain. However, more than any other sign, it takes a long hard look at the road to achieve such goals. When Virgo struggles it becomes filled with self-loathing, criticism and anxiety as it feels that its goals are unattainable.
Jupiter’s transit through Virgo between August 11, 2015 and September 9, 2016
Jupiter in Virgo 2015-2016 brings the opportunity to increase the rocket fuel towards self-improvement. “I think I can, I think I can,” says the engine as it summons the strength to make the climb. Likewise, the couch potato who decides to start day 1 of an exercise program needs to feel like results are possible. While Jupiter is in Virgo, there is ample opportunity to make a concerted effort to work on our issues in practical, hands on ways. Take that yoga class, learn a new skill, volunteer with the less fortunate or simply set in motion something that will make your life feel more together and complete.
As Jupiter enters Virgo another level of evolution opens to us, as we begin to integrate and apply our fresh confidence and excitement from the Leo phase, into practical and useful daily service. Virgo broadly rules work and health, so many may begin to study and practise new ideas in psycho-emotional/spiritual health, and we may see new organisations arise which appeal in the mainstream this way. For instance lifestyle programs may really kick in, which offer education in ideas which are currently still considered to be “alternate”.
On a more collective or philosophical level, transiting Jupiter (philosophy) in Virgo (an earth sign) indicates that by using our hands, getting involved with the details of nature will show us Spirit. God is not on a perch somewhere, rather Spirit may also be found in everyday artifacts and people. This is a wonderful time to feel uplifted (Jupiter) to greater spiritual heights in moments that sometimes may be considered mundane. There is no unique spiritual experience; everything we experience is spiritual. While Jupiter is in Virgo, this realization can be achieved by simply paying close attention to life.
If you are Virgo, Capricorn or Taurus (the Earth signs) then you will have major developments in your individual expression during the second half 2015 and first half 2016.
