Jupiter in Libra – blessings from heaven

Imagine the greatest life-coach you could ever ask for – a teacher, motivator, guru, personal trainer, business coach, inspiring mentor and all-round benevolent angel hovering over your shoulders to guide you into being the best possible version of you [that] you could be… that’s Jupiter [Ang Stoic].

On 9th September, Jupiter, mythological king of the gods and the largest planet in our solar system, moved into air sign Libra for a year-long stay, blessing all those born under the sign of the scales, but what will Jupiter’s journey through Libra bring for the rest of us? Life moves in cycles, and Jupiter takes 12 years to circle the sun; so one way of finding out what might happen is to reflect on what happened last time Jupiter paid a visit to Libra (September 2004 – October 2005). Common themes are justice, harmony, fairness and accountability and reaping what you sow. Here’s a horoscope breakdown of what Jupiter’s transit through Libra could mean for you, based on your star sign.

What Jupiter in Libra could mean for you

Jupiter will be travelling through your house of marriage and business partnership until October, 2017. So, seize the day if you’d like to get engaged or married, find a long-term business partner; attract more clients or meet someone special. The patience and cooperation required by Jupiter in Libra will challenge your free and independent spirit, but Arians who insist on ‘my way or the highway’, could find themselves travelling alone!

Jupiter in Libra will bless all parts of your life connected with health, community service, pets and daily routine until October, 2017. While this may not sound like the most exciting of lists, for a practical Taurean, 2017 promises to be a golden year. On the health front there’s the potential to create a truly balanced life and get to the bottom of any psychological, emotional or physical health issues. Plus you’ll feel motivated to get your home and office in order by tackling unfinished jobs and paperwork and setting up streamlined systems. And if you’ve been meaning to welcome a furry friend to the fold…

Jupiter will be in fellow air sign Libra until October, 2017, in your house of creativity, children, love and pleasure. Clearly a wonderful year to become pregnant, but, if that’s not the plan, expect growth in all sorts of other areas backed by a sense of anticipation and adventure. You’ll be taking risks, trying new things, wearing your heart on your sleeve and say ‘Yes!’ to exciting opportunities. 2017 is also a year to discover your inner child, have some fun and explore your creativity.

Jupiter will be travelling through your home, family and security sector until October, 2017 – a wonderful opportunity to focus on all things domestic – something that comes naturally to you. Some Cancerians will renovate, buy and sell property, move to a new home or move overseas, while others will seek to beautify or simply enjoy their existing home. And, if you’ve fallen out with a family member, 2017 is a year to forgive and move on and also a great time to welcome new family members.

Jupiter will be travelling through your house of communication, networking, and neighbourhood, until October, 2017, promising a busy and stimulating year with the chance to learn, teach, write, publish and meet new and interesting people. With Saturn helping you ground your creativity, and Uranus opening up new opportunities, things look good in the months ahead.

Jupiter will be cruising through your house of money, security and self-worth until October, 2017 – and who wouldn’t like more of these things! Expect windfalls, abundance, opportunities to earn more cash and an easing in your financial situation, coupled with an increase in self-worth or, at the very least, an appreciation of your own unique value. If matters have proved challenging on the family front of late, tensions will ease over the coming year.

Each year, one lucky zodiac sign gets to host generous and benevolent Jupiter for a whole 12 months, and this year it’s your turn! Jupiter in your sign marks the beginning of a brand new 12-year cycle, So, from now until October, 2017, it’s all about travel, study, growth, optimism and expansion. Last year you let go of the past – this year you’re launching the new you, but with Uranus and Pluto still involved, there could be some unforeseen shifts and changes on the relationship/family front – so be prepared.

Jupiter will travel through your house of secrets and spiritual growth until October, 2017, bringing insights, epiphany and expansion of consciousness. This could feel like a solitary time, though you’re no stranger to solitude and often thrive on moments spent alone. Make this a year of rest, relaxation, recuperation and release, in preparation for Jupiter entering Scorpio in November next year, and the beginning of a brand new 12-year cycle.

Jupiter will travel through your house of friends, networking, social groups and helpful contacts until October, 2017, pushing you to explore new ideas, new roles and new relationships. If you feel attracted to a particular group as leader or participant, make your move and you won’t be disappointed. You may also be inspired to join a charitable cause or become involved with groups, possibly on an international level.

Jupiter will travel through your house of work, career and reputation until October, 2017. You can look forward to reaping the rewards of all the hard work you have put in over the past six years, which could lead to a promotion at work, recognition for your efforts, a pay rise or some other career highlight. You may even decide to change career completely or retire with the sense of a job well done.

Jupiter will travel through fellow air sign Libra until October, 2017, visiting your house of travel, study and religious and spiritual beliefs. Expect a year of expansion and growth in any or all of these areas – overseas trips, enrolling in a course, publishing a book or blog, going on a pilgrimage or retreat, studying at university, new philosophies, new ideas and encounters with those who expand your horizons.

Jupiter will travel through your house of joint ventures, investments, inheritance and death until October, 2017. Now is the time to seek out venture capital, plan your retirement, check your superannuation, start a business or invest your money wisely. Grievances over legacies could occur, but justice will be on your side. Jupiter aligns with powerful Pluto and transformational Uranus over the next year, prompting you to welcome new alliances as you let go of situations and people that are holding you back.

Sun in Scorpio – plumbing the depths

The sun travels through fixed water sign Scorpio from 23rd October until 22nd November. Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac with keywords ‘I survive’ and ‘I am intense’. Scorpio is a complex energy with three different totem animals; first the scorpion, representing her lower nature, jealousy, desire for revenge and tendency to manipulate others; secondly the eagle, representing Scorpio’s ability to soar above emotional attachment to access the true power of the sign; and finally the holy dove, symbol of divine love, compassion and forgiveness. Those born under the sign of Scorpio are at best loyal, strong and courageous. They love exploring the mysteries of life – birth, death, sexuality, reincarnation and anything taboo. They have a reputation for being passionate, secretive and highly sensual and, due to their emotional intensity, often have to deal with issues of trust and betrayal. In medical astrology, Scorpio rules the organs of elimination and reproduction, including the urinary tract, bowel, prostate gland and nasal bones. When Scorpios are out of balance they can suffer from haemorrhoids, constipation, urinary tract infections, menstrual and reproductive problems plus catarrh and sinus problems. The Scorpio colours are dark red, purple, dark green and black. Scorpio’s greatest lesson is to learn to let go on an emotional level and forgive others.

November new moon

The November new moon falls right at the end of the month on the 29th in fiery and passionate Sagittarius. New moons bring fresh beginnings, and this visionary and pioneering lunation will push you to pursue your visions and dreams. A tense angle with Neptune and the nodal axis brings a touch of fantasy and improbability into the mix… but what’s wrong with that?

November full moon

The November full moon falls in the early hours of the 15th in sensual earth sign Taurus. This promises to be an abundant and healing full moon with Chiron forming a flowing angle to both sun and moon. Enjoy the gifts of nature, fresh air, companionship and beautiful food as the days grow longer in the lead-up to the summer solstice.

November moon calendar

Launch projects at the new moon, bring them to completion in the period from just before the full moon to the third quarter phase and wind them down and reflect on developments in the week before the next new moon. Important events such as parties, conferences and weddings are best held close to the full moon or when the moon is in the same sign as your sun (or star) sign.
