What To Expect From Jupiter in Scorpio: 2017- 2018

Jupiter enters Scorpio on October 10, 2017. Earth and water signs, rejoice! On that same day, Venus and Mars are conjoined in Virgo, so there’s a lot of decisions being analyzed. What was forged during Jupiter’s tenancy in Libra is either solidified and locked-down in Scorpio, or bites the dust, HARD, not to be resurrected. Jupiter’s an expansive planet, and Scorpio is all about scrutiny, so those who were born with Jupiter in Scorpio have extra strong spidey sense. You can either be a “good witch” or a “bad witch” with Jupiter in Scorpio. If Jupiter in Libra brought over-optimism with regard to relationships, Uranus has had a say in it and Jupiter in Scorpio (Uranus is exalted in Scorpio) is the final arbitrator.

On a global mundane scale, Jupiter in Scorpio can represent ideologies that have very deep, unyielding bottom lines, with severe repercussions for non-adherence. We see this on a daily basis thanks to the Internet and with Jupiter in Scorpio, I would expect that even more shall be revealed regarding fanaticism, such as the canings of women who dared to have sex or even speak to a man outside of marriage. The atrocities of ISIS against women may become so overwhelming that it can no longer be ignored.

A great positive example of the Justice that Jupiter in Scorpio could serve up is total, undeniable proof (Jupiter) of the sex-traffic trade (Scorpio) on a scale that finally gets enough attention that those who have been hidden in those dark crevices can no longer hide. Jupiter in Scorpio will be ruled by Pluto, now in Capricorn… it’s about time Pluto in Capricorn finally demolishes some of those long-hidden secrets that have kept society sick on subterranean levels!

Looking at aspects to the other planets that Jupiter makes while he’s in Scorpio, on December 2nd, Jupiter in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces at 11 degrees respectively. NIIIICE. Jupiter gets all the way to 23 degrees Scorp before turning retrograde on March 9, 2018. At that time, Pluto is at 20 Capricorn, so there’s an extended time those 2 planets are in sextile. Those with earth and water planets in the later degrees are going to appreciate that.

The big guy then retrogrades down through Scorpio and trines Neptune again on May 25th at 16 degrees. The station direct happens on July 10th at 13 degrees, still in trine to Neptune. Jupiter will be very powerful on that station direct, with Neptune helping. He makes the last trine to Neptune on August 9th at 15 degrees.

The entire time Jupiter is in Scorpio, there are no harsh aspects from the outers. This is meaningful. The only aspect is the trine to Neptune, repeatedly. I think this bodes incredibly well for those who have suffered greatly and need to have their burdens lifted. There is compassion in this configuration, and a lets-get-to-the-bottom-of-this, once and for all, kind of feeling.

Just for the record, if this trine does lovely things to your chart, keep your wits about you, use that Scorpio energy to really suss out where to put your compassion, because when Jupiter enters Sadge next, he’ll be squaring Neptune. Chickens… roost…. Get me? No? Go listen to “Bitch” by Meredith Brooks. A real Scorpio/Pisces song if there ever was one.

I, for one, love this upcoming phase of Jupiter when it trines Neptune. It’s kissing my chart all over! How about you?

    • If you’re not married, I’d look real close at my friends during the Jupiter transit. Could be one of them is meant to be more….

      • Thank you! DianeO. But i am married.
        Funny thing…
        At my solar Return for this time period, it is exactly conjunct my 7th DC, Grand trine my 3rd sun. WIth tr Neptune at my 11th

        So there is an emphasis in 3rd, 7th, 11th houses natal/solar return

        At my progressed chart for that day it will grand trine my progressed Venus in Cancer @ 9th house.

        Curious to see how it plays.

        That is a few days after my progressed rising changes to Scorpio. I hope i am capable of distinguish things.

  1. Hmmm it will conjunct natal Neptune and trine tr. Neptune and sextile natal Sun/Venus/Mars. hopefully the culmulative effect will be a softening the conjunction of tr. saturn to the moon…..hopefully lol

    • Transit Saturn to the Moon doesn’t need to be a harsh transit. Depends on how your Moon is aspected. In fact, it could be a very stabilizing force during this time.

  2. It’ll be in my 4th. I have Uranus in there and it’ll oppose all my 10th house planets. I don’t want any family drama ? But, maybe Jupiter will apply some much needed balm to all the Saturn in Scorpio and prolonged Mars rx Scorpio (2016) trauma.

  3. If someone has natal Moon opposite transit Neptune they could be decieved…have huge rose colored glasses and/or beer goggles on. Jupiter would just amplify the mist around the situation.

  4. My sun is at Scorp 0 in the 2nd, trining my moon, too. Neptune at 21and Merc at 24 in the 3rd; my Mercury is part of a natal grand trine with Jupiter and Saturn.

    It all sounds good to me! 🙂

  5. This will be in my 8th and will conjunct Uranus there. I thought that it being in Libra would be great but with all the hard aspects it really hasn’t been all that great.

  6. Thank you Diane for writing this. It goes ahead 10 degrees of my house 2 and after that 20 degrees of house 3. Gemini is on Midheaven and Mercury in house 12. Pices on Descendant. Saturn (in Scorpio) is in house 2, sextile Mars in the first degree of house 4. I have no idea yet what I can expect. We’ll see! 🙂

  7. Great heads up post, Diane. Big stuff imploded in my life during the past two Jupiter in Scorpio transits. In 1993-94 my marriage of 24 years ended. In 2006-2007 my health imploded with a diagnosis of MCS/EI. Jupiter through Scorpio crosses my MC, Mercury, Chiron and Sun all squaring a stellium in the 7th and 8th Houses. So, these are major turns! Thing is at this point I see the value of the harsh lessons as just what was needed. Deep clearing of what is not authentic.

    I love the insight you left for me with this: “You can either be a “good witch” or a “bad witch” with Jupiter in Scorpio. If Jupiter in Libra brought over-optimism with regard to relationships, Uranus has had a say in it and Jupiter in Scorpio (Uranus is exalted in Scorpio) is the final arbitrator.” Uranus sextiles my Scorpio stellium/Leo stellium by way of that Leo aspect. “Uranus is exalted in Scorpio” is the big new insight be me. Thanks for that, and this post.

  8. Woohoo! Finally some good mojo for me!

    Well, Jupiter HAVE been transitting my moon in 8th but when Uranus decided to chime in, things went from OK and good to “WTF?! Why didn’t I get this job? I was the PERFECT candiate FFS!!”

    So So frustrating!
    Uranus is transitting my 2nd house atm…

    I have a opposition to Chiron from my 4 planets stellium in Scorpio and he is located in the 3rd house. So in one area Jupiter is in his fave house in my chart (9th), but at the same tine touching base with that Chiron energy. Time to dig things up with my sis once and for all perhaps?

    Also, Venus, Jupiter and Sun is all conjunct. Jupiter will have his return! The last time he had a return I met my long time BF (now ex though), and the one I who should have been The One. I also finalized my bachelor of science. Endings and beginnings, huh??

  9. My chart is hugely air and fire but with a 19 degree Virgo Rising, Moon at 20 degrees of Pisces and Uranus at 13 degrees Cancer this should have a positive effect. I believe this will bode well for me, when it aspects my Ascendant and for my 7th and 11th houses when my Moon and Uranus are transited, both of which have had to take the rub recently.

  10. Amazing head’s up for me too. It will cross over my natal Jupiter in Scorpio in the first house at 19 degrees. And trine my 19 degree Pisces moon in 4th house. The direct station at 13 degrees Scorpio will sit smack dab on my ascendant and trine my 13 degree Cancer Mercury – lol – I’ll probably gain some weight. What else dare I expect ?

  11. On October 10, I will have just experienced my Venus Return; Tr Virgo Mars will be conjunct my natal Virgo Venus; Tr Jupiter will be rapidly approaching my natal Scorpio Neptune/Jupiter conjunction ushering in my Jupiter Return. My natal Pisces Moon will be conjunct Rx Pisces Neptune when Tr Scorpio Jupiter trines Neptune in December. With my boyfriend’s natal Virgo Mars conjunct my natal Virgo Venus; his Sagittarius stellium conjunct my Sagittarius Saturn; his Virgo Saturn conjunct my Virgo Juno I’m thinking we’ll be solidifying our relationship this fall.

  12. Can’t say it’s all roses in my chart but the lets get to the bottom of it has a ring of beauty to it. Albeit a Scorpio one but it can be a liberation with an open heart,mind not to shut down or lock down as you say. At the end of the day let it all be good…:)

  13. I could use the relief. I have a grand water trine that includes the sun and jupiter so this jupiter scorpio transit will ride that wave. The neptune transit conjuncts my sun (part of the water trine) & I feel the creativity coming. I’ll enjoy riding the wave – but with eyes open! Saturn transits the 7th cusp – get real about relationship.

    • That Saturn is going to be extremely helpful! I would love to hear how your grand water trine manifests in your life. Maybe you could post on the Forum… and please send me an email if you do.

  14. Can’t wait for my Jupiter return and it will be on my Venus and Jupiter conjunction, before moving to my Neptune/MC.

  15. Starting with late November, it’s going to transit my 12h Sun conj Venus (square Mars trine Saturn), then a Jupiter return in early 2018, ending up with a 1st house Pluto. Neptune will pass my natal Saturn at that time, too. While Neptune caused me some troubles before, I hope for a good outcome 🙂

  16. It would be helpful if you list what each sign in venus values.
    Aries in venus values:
    Taurus in venus values:
    Gemini in venus values:
    so we can learn about people.

    • Swan, I *think* you might have meant to post this on Elsa’s recent blog post about Venus and values, but thank you for that suggestion! I will do a Blog post on that this weekend. I always deeply appreciate it when suggestions are made.

  17. The aspects mentioned make kisses all round my chart. Boy have I suffered over the last 8 years. I shall be watching where is good to put my compassion. I don’t intend to give myself away again. Thank you Diane.

  18. I look forward to this transit very much, because I’m a deeply spiritual person and Scorpio rules my 12th house, which has been thoroughly cleaned by Saturn a few years ago. My Ascendant is also in 27 degrees of Scorpio and after that beneficial meeting Jupiter in Sadge will meet my Neptune (2 deg) and Jupiter (4 deg).

    All this will suit perfectly to the life changes I’ve been going through during the last 6 years. I am not the same person anymore by any means. Everything has changed and for the better.

  19. I’ll have my Jupiter Return when he enters Scorpio, conjoining first natal Jupiter then Neptune 2 degrees later and then my IC at 7 Scorpio. So looks pretty nice! Sextiles all my early Virgo planets and then my Sun at 18 Virgo (although also squaring my Asc/Moon at 17/18 Leo).

    Not always so enjoyable a transit, though. Last Jupiter Return 1 Scorp broke up a (short-term) relationship that really wasn’t very good for me, but it was very painful. But I got a job and started a new career several months later, so all in all a good thing.

    • Les, sounds like we have similar Jupiters… mine’s at 1 Scorpio. The last Jupiter return was aspected terribly! This time around, it’s much better! Here’s to a great 12 years!

      • Yay! Yeah, I think from another post of yours it looked like maybe you were born a few days after me? (I was 9/11/58 – be glad you weren’t born on 9/11!)

    • I have natal Jupiter in Scorpio at 2 degrees, Neptune at 3 degrees Scorpio and my MC at 4 degrees Scorpio. I’m also born a Virgo in Sept 1958. My Asc/Moon is at 9/5 degrees Capricorn. My last Jupiter return was unremarkable. I started my career during a Jupiter return which lasted for 30+ years. Here’s hoping for a great year!

  20. Jupiter is traveling through my sun sign, Libra.
    Jupiter will be on my Ascendent, 23 degree Scorpio twice.

    Jupiter will then travel to my first and second houses. As a Cardinal, these past 8 years have been a nightmare. I am hoping for a turnaround. In January, 2020, I will have Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto transiting my 2nd house where my natal Jupiter resides. I am preparing for anything and everything.

  21. Thanks for the updates about the transit and key dates, Diane.

    My ascendant is around 11 degrees Scorpio so I will be alert early December. Last Jupiter in Scorpio transit I had many professional opportunities and simply met lots of abundant and financially successful (Jupiter) people (I wasn’t one of them though, hehe.) Did many short communication courses too.

    Got sun in Pisces at 18 degrees so will pay attention too during winter and spring in 2018. Neptune in Sagittarius squares my sun so things will be rocky too (t. Neptune square n. Neptune) yet with a silver lining of some kind.

    Hopefully it will bring a pregnancy…fingers crossed.

    I do like Jupiter in libra, though, touching all my natal air.

  22. Scorpio is my 12th house and Jupiter will be stationing retrograde right on my Pluto. Before then, I’m looking forward to Jupiter “sextrining” my MC-IC. As much as I’ve liked Jupiter touching my tiny Libra stellium, with Pluto squaring it there have been tough lessons too.

  23. Hi Diana,
    I have Scorpio in the 12 house with Uranus and Venus,Venus makes aspect to my Mars in the 9th house and the Sun makes aspect to Uranus in the 12, do you know what the year may possibly bring?

  24. I have been in the cesspool since Saturn in Scorpio and I am not sure if I am really ashamed ready to be me that I should be probably by my early 40s. I am natal Jupiter in Aries and my ex husband has….I have a weird feeling writing ex husband I was married half of my life almost literally. Ack …. he’s 11 20 69 and I guess I was his 6th birthday gift. Took 21 years to get together and I can’t even get my head around this. I may be giving a half birthday gift to me and get a reading from you, Diane. I know nothing about nuthin’ when I am in the same reality as astrology and MY chart ETC. Ack.

  25. Hi dianne. I am a cancer sunsign and ascendant. Dob- 4-7-1987, tob-6:45 am, delhi,india.
    How will the transit ofjupiter in scorpio and saturn in capricotn affect my life? Will it bring true lasting love in my life?

  26. Hmm….Jupiter in Scorpio….I am a Sagittarius with Scorpio rising, from what I keep hearing and reading it will be a welcomed relief from the past few years when that dark cloud was hovering just over my head….Looking forward to it.

  27. Rereading this, because I process serious topics better that way – great article, Diane. Thank you!

    Jupiter in Scorpio will be “kissing” my chart, too, starting with Venus in Cancer. 🙂

  28. My Natal Jupiter is in my third house, but it will transit my 6th house when it moves into Scorpio where my natal Moon and Uranus live. It looks like I may be up for a promotion because of this placement.

  29. I am cancer born (July 4th) and have Jupiter in Leo. Moon located in Libra. Then four planets – Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars are in Gemini. Have been suffering from job related problems for last 3 years, due to suppression, peer jealousy etc. Have a permanent job, but want to relocate to another job/ another country. How this Jupiter transit is going to work for me? Thanks in advance for your time and replies…..

  30. natal Jupiter @ 7 degrees Scorpio in 8th house
    natal Venus @ 15 degrees Scorpio in 8th house
    natal Neptune @ 28 degrees Scorpio in 8th house

  31. Hi Elsa Elsa!

    Later this year,

    Jupiter will transit my natal 10th house,
    and will trine my natal venus in Pisces (2nd house),
    and will trine my natal jupiter in Cancer (6th house),

    and will conjunct my natal pluto in Scorpio (10th house),
    and will oppose my natal mercury in Taurus (4th house).

    Any personal thoughts on this?

    Abz 🙂

  32. Jupiter will conjunct my natal Neptune just after it trines transit Neptune and that will trine my sun. But on that day, Mars is conjunct transit Jupiter, which traditionally can be a harbinger of war/aggression (Scorpio isn’t the best sign for this). I’m a Pisces and these signs represent my 4th and 8th houses, which can both represent death- they are aspects concerning both of my rulers (Jupiter and Neptune) so I’m not quite sure what this will bring. Last time Jupiter was conjunct my Neptune my boyfriend broke up with me, (to the day) but I suspect it will be a more intense event than that this time.

  33. Totally new here (1st post) am AqueerSun, LeoMoon, GemRising; and this Jupiter looks icky to me. I guess I’ll be a bad witch? (just discovered badwitch blog too, has been online for like 13? years). I guess only saving grace is my Venus & Merc in Cap; not sure about angles etc.

  34. Oh, other thing I noticed was it ends on Nov 8, 2018; election day in US, & goes to exultant Sag, so that bodes good things. I’m an organizer….

  35. Great writing! Easy to read. Thanks so much! Jupiter will transit my 6th; consequently, Neptune will transit my MC. I’m already in the early stages of planning a musical career change, so this should help greatly!

  36. I’m excited about this. I’m a Libra sun, but most of the rest of my natals are super-watery. So Jupiter will transit my 6th house natal, 2nd house solar. Jupiter will conjunct my natal Neptune in Scorp and my moon conjunct Venus in Scorp, it’ll trine my Chiron/Jupiter/MC conjunction in Pisces, oppose my POF in Taurus, and trine my 2nd house Mars in Cancer. Looking back, this was always a lucrative transit for me when I worked in the corporate world. I now work a freelance gig from home at a job where my clients are disproportionately women, especially older women. I think I’ll tweak my website to focus on that watery, intense feminine energy. Smells like $$$$, which is great because Saturn in Scorpio a couple of years ago basically killed my former job. Looking forward to better financial times ahead.

  37. Neptune at 4’Scorpio and Jupiter at 23′, both in the 8th. Hopefully a powerful time after much struggle on many fronts. Neptune travelling my first has been no picnic. I love to dive deep if it promotes clearing and healing!

  38. Would Uranus Taurus starting in mid 2018 count as a not so good aspect against Jupiter Scorp? I’m a Scorp who was excited to see what the Jupiter Scorpio opposite my Saturn Taurus 7th house would bring. Then, saw Uranus would be joining the party. Seems like anything I’ve read about a Uranus opposition isn’t fun 🙁 ?

  39. I have uranus in Scorpio in my second house , my jupiter is in my 11th house conjunct my mercury in the sign of leo. Saturn is in my 3rd but will enter my 4th when it goes into Capricorn 2018 which will square my asc in 28 degrees Virgo and oppose my venus. My libra moon mostly covers my first house conjunct pluto.

  40. Transiting Jupiter conjuncting natal neptune – confidently (rose-colored glasses) going after my dreams, with the old maxim “be careful what you wish for” ringing loudly in my ears- like the tick of the roller-coaster as it climbs the steep rail in Libra; cranking up for a wild ride. Last time this happened, Uranus was on the IC; moved suddenly to a beautiful international historic town near the sea. This time, Uranus is sitting on the DC. Maybe a surprise job offer in a dream location that whisks me away. But will it be like I dream it will be? With Neptune?! Hahahahah

  41. I have a grand trine in water…my as. Is somewhere between 8 and 11 Cancer, I have Moon conjunct Neptune in Scorpio in the fourth (N 12, M 16 Sc) and Jupiter conjunct Chiron in Pisces in the eighth house (Jupiter 5 deg., Chiron 9 deg. Pisces), and my Venus is at 31 deg. Taurus in the tenth, which I think will be making many aspects to Pluto….my IC is around 1 deg. Scorpio….not quite sure….this is definitely going to be affecting me….

    • I should imagine a harmony mentally and emotionally with the way you present yourself to the world….the Venus Mars conjunction already passed the mid degrees of Virgo…I found it quite motivating….although in square to Saturn…

  42. I am Libra Sun, Libra Rising (Oct. 11th B-Day) Moon in Aries and Venus in Scorpio (2nd House). What does this all mean? Thanks,

  43. Ha. It seems to essentially play nice on my side (which is welcomed considering how so many other things won’t). And thank you so much for that song! I’d forgotten how much I liked it!

  44. No wonder I bought lingerie, bustiers and garters for no reason the other day. Scorpio Jupiter is coming for my 1st house Scorpio Pluto. I don’t have a partner or anything!

  45. I just realised that Jupiter stationing direct at 13 degrees Scorpio will also conjunct the South Node of the composite chart of a relationship that is really important to me…the chart of the relationship is also on a Fixed Cross with the north node in Taurus at 13 degrees, which is the same degree as this person”s sun…Jupiter is doing wonderful things for my chart emotionally, but wonder what it means on a relationship level, either internally or externally….

  46. Hello
    I’m cancer sun 21* , Cap rising 0* Gemini moon 22* + jupiter 22*.Saturn in my 12th has been horrendous. Not long to go
    What will Jupiter in 11th bring?

    • You have difficult Pluto aspects too, with Pluto going through your first and second houses, which will also oppose your sun when it gets to 21 degrees…I would make use of the Jupiter Pluto sextile if I were you, but you will have to wait until the end of August 2018….impossible to predict everything without seeing the full chart but Saturn can bring wonderful structure as well as difficulty….

  47. Love your analysis! Thanks Elsa. Perhaps the children sex trade horrors will come to light and be dealt with during Pluto//vibe
    Love the sexy time with dreamy Neptune. I definitely feel some deep healing coming next year. Gonna go listen to Meredith.
    Thank you.

  48. The transit calendar says that Jupiter is square Neptune the rest of this month. I can’t find information on that anywhere to get a gist of what I am dealing with here. Typical Neptune influence.


    • For daisynymph1:

      Jupiter was sesquisquare (135 degrees) to Neptune in Pisces (about 12 degrees) when it was 27 degrees Libra. Depending on the orb of influence you select, this aspect is either over or waning. A prominent astrologer said this aspect cautioned against making a wrong choice. Interesting. I have one of these aspects though not with Jupiter and Neptune and try to manage it by aiming for getting to the “just enough” point rather than “just one more.” People are different so your solution may be different. For a concrete image think about a situation where you are buying something and the salesperson tries to get you to accessorize it, or buy one for a friend. And then perhaps you realize that one is the right amount. Perhaps you get annoyed and decide not to get it after all, considering that each time you see it you will think of an unpleasant salesperson and the feeling that the object evokes messes with the feng shui of your peaceful place. Hope this helps.

  49. Interesting and refreshing. Thank you for the analysis, Diane. The past five years have been difficult on a whole new level. Loss, stark realizations, foundations crumbling away – geez, louise. I know the world won’t stop spinning but I’d like to not go through life dizzy over it. It’s been one thing after another, ripped away. I will make the most of this.

  50. “Jupiter in Scorpio will be ruled by Pluto, now in Capricorn… it’s about time Pluto in Capricorn finally demolishes some of those long-hidden secrets that have kept society sick on subterranean levels!”

    Just as Jupiter entered Scorpio the Harvey Weinstein issue comes to light. Your analysis nailed it. This is just the tip of the iceberg

  51. This post was spot on. Ever since Jupiter went into Scorpio sexual harassment and misconduct has been in the news every day. Looks like it won’t slow down any time soon either.

  52. Hi!

    If i may ask please, i got Jupiter in Scorpio on zero degrees in 1st house, Cancer sun, Libra rising, and Saturn, Pluto & Mars in Libra. Will this transit of Jupiter in Scorpio benefit travels to foreign lands in this period, and could it be sign of good new chances abroad?

  53. Hello! I born 11/1/1951 @ 1 pm with Jupiter in Leo. Scorpio Sun. Aquarius Rising; Sagittarius Moon, Mars & Venus in Virgo. Jupiter in SCORPIO in my first house and what a ride I am on in this season. You are correct in all your assessment. Glad Women Got their POWER back! ALSO >>>Power to the children, AS WELL!!
