Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, spends approximately one year in every sign. Traditional astrology calls this planet ‘The Greater Benefic,’ meaning, the most powerful and favorable influence! It's the Big Planet, the planet of expansion and abundance, knowledge and growth. Philosophy, learning, inspiration, vision, foreign affairs and traveling abroad, as well as truth and justice, also come under this planet. Jupiter’s domain includes wisdom, idealism, aspiration, and generosity. It brings opportunities, optimism and the faith necessary to expand your life in the direction of your dreams.
The key word is ‘expansion,’ and is the overall principle of Jupiter’s influence. Jupiter also expands consciousness and helps you to perceive ‘the big picture’ of life. Nothing this super-sized planet does is small!
On the flip side, Jupiter’s influence can cause you to be overly optimistic, blindly naive and foolhardy, indulge in exaggeration and prone to extravagance. Jupiter’s influence can also manifest in less desirable ways through exaggeration and overconfidence, extravagance and overindulgence, self-importance, and gullibility.
On October 10th, 2017, Jupiter leaves the amicable sign of Libra and will enter the savvy sassy intense sign of Scorpio. In Scorpio, no matter where it is in your solar chart, its influence will heighten your ability to look within yourself to solve dilemmas and recognize opportunities. This planetary placement will encourage you to take control of your own life and enhance how you feel about yourself, the positive and negative, and take responsibility.
