Jupiter In Scorpio
Jupiter In Scorpio – OCTOBER 25, 2005 – NOVEMBER 23, 2006
Every year, mighty Jupiter, the largest and luckiest planet in the solar system, changes from one sign to the next, luring us into new and foreign territory and bringing us plenty of opportunities to expand our views and our boundaries.
Jupiter’s entrance into the intense, secretive sign of Scorpio on October 25, 2005 marked the beginning of a thirteen-month period of exploring and confronting the complex mysteries of life and death, as well as the dark canyons deep within us. Jupiter has taken the plunge in search of wisdom, truth, and untapped resources that have been lurking in the shadows. We can use this probing, investigative energy to understand and heal buried issues that we have been rejecting. The magnetism and healing power of Jupiter in Scorpio is a powerful force for change. It has the strength to move us through this alchemical process of transforming something from the deepest recesses of our being and ascending beyond our present state of consciousness.
Scorpio, you’re currently the cosmic favorite, and you are in a position to achieve life-changing breakthroughs and make promising new beginnings. You’re unstoppable now! Jupiter also shows favor to the signs of Capricorn, Pisces, Cancer, and Virgo by presenting similar opportunities for assistance, financial gain, leadership and personal achievement, rewards and recognition, increased powers of intuition, and the strengthening of metaphysical or religious beliefs. This easy flowing, fortunate energy must be consciously activated, though, so these opportunities don’t pass by unnoticed.
Jupiter’s 13-month transit through the fixed sign of Scorpio can be stressful for the other fixed signs (Aquarius, Taurus, and Leo). Unless there is optimum control of the appetites and behavior, complications can arise from sensual pursuits, obsessive or manipulative behavior, devious money tactics, overly-ambitious actions, overdoing and overestimating what is possible, or extreme craving for control and misuse of power.
The first few months of this cycle can be particularly challenging for the fixed signs. Problems and issues must be addressed, and old ways of doing things must change. This powerful Grand Cross demands right action, a change of perspective, digging deeper to understand the greater meaning of who you are, and the elimination of stubborn, self-defeating attitudes. It is a frustrating few months for the fixed signs, but patience and effort can bring extraordinary achievements!
For all signs, this mixture of energies can be either beneficial or damaging, depending on the motivations behind the application of Jupiter’s abundant blessings and good fortune and Scorpio’s considerable insight and power.
On the positive side, we can choose to use this energy to tap into our inner wealth and spiritual power for the good of all. At its most negative extreme, greedy lust for outer wealth and power can lead to the exploitation of others. Free will permits us to choose the Jupiter in Scorpio energy for better or for worse. If we navigate this alchemical process wisely, an important segment of our lives will be purged, purified, and transformed by the time Jupiter exits Scorpio in November 2006.
May the journey out of the darkness into the light be time well spent.
