Jupiter is the planet of expansion, luck, and generosity. It’s the giving planet, because whatever it touches, it makes bigger (including your waistline). For the planets, the signs are like costumes. Jupiter has been happily romping in Libra’s pretty, pink party outfit, and now it’s about to pour itself into Scorpio’s slinky black dress. Jupiter will be direct in sexy and intense Scorpio until November 8, 2018.
Jupiter is a Benefic Planet
Jupiter brings luck and expands whatever it touches. Jupiter is one of the benefics, or kindly planets, that make things easier. Jupiter wants to have it all, know it all, be it all, and do it all. Whichever sign Jupiter is in, both positive and negative expressions of the sign increase.
Deep with Desire
The sign of Scorpio, however, doesn’t expand: it goes down deep. Scorpio is intense, sexy, mysterious, and magnetic. Scorpio is ambitious and will do whatever it takes to get what it wants. Desire is shaped, focused, and sharp. Jupiter in Scorpio expands deeply and widely. If Scorpio is like thunder, the Jupiter in Scorpio is a hurricane. It doesn’t just probe; it penetrates through. It doesn’t just desire; it lusts obsessively.
Scandals! Scandals that started while Jupiter was retrograde will be revealed. However, con artists come out to play and take advantage of the good will and weakness of others. Political, religious, or investment scandals are likely.
Discover What is Hidden
The desire to know will fuel an increase in investigative journalism and advances in science, especially medicine. Jupiter brings luck in trying to discover what is hidden. There will be more respect for investigative journalism. Jupiter gives luck, and Scorpio reveals what is not known. New advances or discoveries may lead to finding the cause or cure of illnesses we currently dread.
Seeing What Other’s Miss
Entrepreneurship, as opposed to traditional employment, will increase where possible. Jupiter in Scorpio wants to be the one at the helm. It sees what others miss, and it will take advantage of what others overlook. It wants to increase wealth for itself, not for someone else. Workers will increasingly want to strike out on their own. We may see an uptick in new freelancers or entrepreneurs. Established businesses may fold due to increased competition and regulations that they can no longer ignore.
Religious devotion will move toward the more mystic, esoteric, and occult. It could be a fad or permanent. Jupiter in Scorpio wants to find what is hidden. There may be a larger overall interest in the occult or in practices considered mysterious or even scary. This is because people want to learn more about who they are outside of whatever society tells them they are.
More sex! People may have more sex or be more sexual. The ways a culture tries to repress sex will stop working. People won’t want to simply have sex, though: they want to have better, more satisfying, intimate sex without taboos or restrictions.
