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?
