Jupiter Transiting the sign of Scorpio: October 10, 2017 to November 8, 2018
This transit gives more understanding to the realm of Scorpio. Jupiter is group morality and cultural agreement. With Jupiter moving through Scorpio we are reassessing as a society what the agreed upon morality or culturally taught right and wrongs are. It brings a revision of the collective moral code. The underlying principles and beliefs systems that give rise to behaviors are being addressed. We will see more sexual impropriety coming to light and even sexual addictions and deviations being brought up to be digested, often publicly. Scorpio is a covert, secretive style. Jupiter is naturally an open and unfettered planet that is about growth through expansion. Scorpio seeks to keep things hidden but Jupiter just can’t keep a secret so this is why we see such things as affairs, pedophilia, sexual harassment, and behaviors where disrespect among the parties involved are taking the headlines. Jupiter stands for the truth and when it moves through a sign that is about secrecy it is going to reveal those secrets.
We have the chance to become more intimate with ourselves when we are admitting what we truly want.
A type of intimacy that springs from honesty that stems from coming clean is the result of the drama this transit creates. We have the chance to become more intimate with ourselves when we are admitting what we truly want. This is a gritty time for a lot of people. Many repressed desires that are motivated by the need to gorge ourselves on selfishness or what some would call sin are floating on the surface of our personal oceans, just waiting to be discovered. This is our own form of ambergris; vomited up admissions that can be mined for the incredibly value they offer us. The value of insight.
Jupiter along with Venus is what we value. Venus is the value we give the sensual and superficial, but Jupiter is the value we give happiness, hope and faith. We are willing to spend everything on Jupiter. We are willing above all to pay for hope. That’s why religion makes so much money. It sells hope.
Be careful who and what you invest in at this time. Charlatans and politicians will be on the prowl extra stealthily this year and next. They play to your fear to appeal to your hope. Your hope opens your pocket and lines theirs. Hypocrisy is especially in danger of exposure. Exposure is the word of the this transit, in fact. Jupiter is the original exhibitionist of the zodiac. This dude moving through Scorpio is when he exposes his private parts. Those who espouse to be about truth and religion but are truly motivated by and hiding greedy or selfish sexual behavior are the ones who find themselves exposing those motivations. This can then lead to a process of self re-connection and Intimacy, which again is the deepest reason for this transit.
Another thing we see is a growing understanding and tolerance for sexual diversity and sexuality that is different from the norm. This is not to say that the same selfish behaviors that Jupiter in Scorpio is exposing will be accepted and tolerated , those are deviant behaviors that take something from someone else. Scorpio rules the resources of others. People who are taking things (and consider that sexual assault, rape, is one of the most personal and damaging ways you can take something from another) those behaviors are not the ones I’m talking about a growing tolerance for. The growing understanding and tolerance is for behaviors and moralities that are not damaging to others but that are different or unfamiliar to our own. Transgender people, cultures that that are coming further along in their acceptance of homosexual people, polyamorous people, these are all things we reestablish a collective and personal understanding of.
Conspiracy theories also come to a head with a Scorpio Jupiter. There is a rise in suspicion regarding those who make the rules and what hidden belief systems they may have in place. Talk of secret societies and the man behind the curtain that controls everything are front and center. We don’t know what to believe with this transit so we often err on the dark side. I will tell you this: this is what I’m going to say regarding the topic of hidden societies and group conspirators: people who are motivated to get together and secretly control the rest of us have traits and personalities that make them prone to not working well together. the kinds of characteristics that a person would have to have to want to purposefully starve or deny or kill or enslave a population are not the kinds of characteristics that people who cooperate well would have. Any wealth does not change that, it’s exacerbates it. While there are groups and institutions and companies and cooperations, governments that that do seek power, influence , money and control, there is also the fact that sociopaths and psychopaths do not work well with anyone, let alone together. There is a limit to what people with selfish intentions can accomplish because of this human fact. Keep this in mind when you get deeper and deeper into those rabbit holes of conspiracy and conjecture this year and next.
Jupiter in Scorpio will bring out Hidden
elements in our culture.
So, Jupiter in Scorpio will bring out Hidden elements in our culture. This is an important transit because of how it can deepen our collective understanding and therefore acceptance of what is required to become more intimate with each other. This happens collectively and it is that cultural shift that affects us personally, so we respond to the changes that are a result of the collective unconscious seeding us to see a deeper truth about who we are and what we are secretly motivated by with these events of public exposure. When we examine how we fit into and view that paradigm of right and wrong then we can deepen our own intimate understanding of ourselves.
