Intensity heats up as expansive Jupiter plunges into passionate, power-hungry Scorpio, the star sign of passion, emotional bonds, shared finances and wealth, from now until November 8, 2018.
Want to know what Jupiter in Scorpio will bring to your zodiac sign? Read on.
As hedonistic Jupiter descends into the swirling, secretive and sensual waters of shamanic Scorpio, a revolution will ignite—and it might indeed be a passionate one.
Jupiter steps into Wardrobe for his annual costume change, doffing Libra’s polished pantsuit and a tailored blazer for sultry Scorpio’s fine French lace, fishnets, and sheers (all in noir).
The last time the red-spotted planet visited this seductive station was from October 2005 to November 2006. Page back in your memoirs because similar themes may now arise.
Whatever the case, this upcoming Jupiter in Scorpio cycle—which lasts until November 8, 2018—is going to crank up the intensity for us all.
Here’s how this powerful planetary transit could affect your star sign over the next thirteen months:
Light and breezy living? Nah, you’d rather be rolling in the deep. Jupiter plunges into Scorpio and your eighth house of deep bonding, sizzling seduction and financial power plays.
You can stake your claim to toe-curling (and soul-satisfying) sex, taking more control of your life, and accumulating piles of money as the expansive planet simmers in this spot until November 8, 2018.
During this electrifying transit, you can master the fine art of drawing exactly the right people into your life—accomplished and emotionally mature types who are on your wavelength and even further along in their career paths than you.
Single Rams need to keep the bar high and not let anyone but serious contenders through the gate. Jupiter rules growth, expansion, and exploration, and the eighth house is the domain of intimacy, eroticism, and metaphysics.
You could weave these together into the most inspirational AND aspirational relationship you’ve ever been in.
Keep an open mind about different types of partners and arrangements, like a long-distance affair. Attached Aries may want to challenge themselves by stretching their boundaries during this cycle.
Because Jupiter is the lord of travel, going on a trip together can strengthen your bond. On the flip side, if you can’t reignite the embers of passion you may decide to consciously uncouple.
Love is in the air, Bull! There’s a major sea change on your personal emotion ocean as expansive Jupiter tacks into Scorpio and your seventh house of committed partnerships until November 8, 2018. The bold planet hasn’t been here since November 2006, and your hopelessly romantic sign will welcome this love revolution.
Single Bulls should review your dating style. Have you been unconsciously limiting your success by only pursuing (or letting yourself be pursued by) a specific type? Throw away the rulebook!
And with the added confidence the red-spotted planet bestows, you may feel empowered to make the first move or allow yourself to be more open and accessible from the get-go. As the zodiac’s global ambassador, Jupiter could inspire a love connection with a fascinating person from a different cultural background or a long-distance affair.
Attached? This all-embracing cycle will offer you and your partner a series of opportunities to blend your interests and find new ways to co-create and connect.
It would be so ideal if relationships sparkle for eternity all by themselves, but as with other important things in your life, the rewards you reap are a result of the efforts you invest.
Salud! Raise a glass of good cheer to your health—and we’re thinking something green and clean, Gemini. A noteworthy event occurs when propitious Jupiter sets up base camp in Scorpio and your sixth house of wellness, fitness and streamlined living for the next few months. This is a MAJOR sea change, as the planet of luck, expansion and all things good only visits this sector once every 12 years.
Get ready to tap the kind of vitality and strength you haven’t felt in years—But a little effort on your part is required. You don’t have to do this in one fell swoop, but since Jupiter is larger than life AND supports bold moves, why NOT? You can start with a deep decluttering mission, or the pantry and fridge.
After you’ve cleared out the energy-zapping, processed junk food, replace with farmers market fare and health food store staples. Pick workouts or classes you actually love and commit to showing up regularly.
For added motivation, pre-reward yourself with a couple cute new gym or yoga outfits—when a Gemini looks good, your mood rises in kind. Zealous Jupiter can guide you away from self-destructive habits and toward things that are fun AND good for you.
Indulge your intellectual curiosity by diving into body-based research that fascinates you. During this year-plus period, explore other alternative or preventative approaches to wellness, like herbalism, homeopathy, flower essences or less-familiar bodywork techniques like Feldenkrais, Trager…or…?!
Rise and shine and dress to impress, Jupiter, sails into Scorpio and your fifth house of romance, creativity, fortune and quite possibly, fame! It’s showtime, Cancer, and that means you have to come out of your Crab shell.
We understand this is not your humble sign’s standard operating procedure, but then, Jupiter only comes around every 12 years, and you may not get these kinds of opportunities again for another decade-plus. Step forward and self-promote.
It may be a little harder than usual—at first—especially after Jupiter ’s stint in your private and domestic fourth house. Artists, writers, and musicians may have been working alone on your “masterpiece” during the hibernation period of the past year-plus. Now it’s time for your big reveal.
Reach out to friends or associates who might be able to help you get your creations into the public eye. “Art for art’s sake” is a nice concept, but sharing it with the world is what you’re ready for now.
Plus, why settle for 15 minutes of fame when Jupiter gifts you months? This transit can also bring an uptick to your romantic life, whether you’re single or quite happily off the market.
Jupiter’s jaunt through intense Scorpio and your fifth house dangles the promise of peak experiences, which can involve travel. You could find yourself on the road (or abroad), or if you’re touring with your beloved, your experiences could be like superglue for your bond. The fifth house also rules fertility, and some Cancers may finally feel like it’s time to add a kid—or a pet—to the brood.
Plant deeper roots or take a job overseas? You may feel pulled in opposite directions, when jetsetter Jupiter touches down in Scorpio and your fourth house of home and family until November 8, 2018.
Jupiter’s expansive influence could have you craving exotic vistas, but with your domestic zone activated, you’re also in the mood for creature comforts..
Of course, there’s always the possibility that you blend these two energies in a creative way, like doing week-long apartment swaps with friends living abroad or buying a larger (or second) home—a beach shack or cabin in the woods, perhaps?
Some Leos might decide to dabble in that business by getting your realtor’s license. With your natural salesmanship talents and creativity, you could make a killing.
If travel or a move isn’t in the cards—or budget—how about a “rotating gourmet supper club,” in which a few friends (coupled, single or a mix) take turns to host elegant dinners, possibly with wine pairings?
On a more personal level, this Jupiter cycle will spotlight family relationships and “issues.” It’s a protective presence, so if you’ve been holding your tongue about something, you’ll be supported in broaching the subject now.
Do speak in “I” terms, in which you dispassionately explain how you’ve been feeling, and be sure to let them speak without interruption. There may be moments of awkwardness, but you could clear the air for once and for all!
Ready to shake things up? Jupiter sails into Scorpio, turbo-charging your sense of adventure and curiosity. This could be the most welcomed breath of fresh air you’ve had since September 9, 2016, when the larger-than-life planet settled down in Libra and your cautiously practical second house.
On the upside, you probably experienced some significant professional growth and even clarified your next career trajectory. Starting this week, you can start building on that solid foundation and broaden your life in exciting and inspirational new ways. For starters, get ready for a faster-paced social life between now and November 8, 2018.
You don’t need to span the globe to get your kicks, either. The third house governs local goings-on, and your hometown—perhaps your very own ‘hood—should prove a rich source of activity and, more importantly, fun. Spend more time in nearby venues, whether for dinner, to grab a drink, shop or check out the local talent.
Single Virgos could meet an eligible prospect who lives within walking distance or a short commute away. If you’re not finding what you’re looking for, create a Meetup, join the food co-op, take classes and get familiar with the cultural scene.
Since the third house also rules transportation, you might want to invest in a new set of wheels in the coming year, whether two or four. To make your commuting more pleasurable AND productive, upgrade your gadgetry (no more cracked screens!), and sign up for intriguing podcasts.
