Jupiter in Virgo: It’s Good!

August 2016 – September 2017

Jupiter enters a new sign every year and positively affects a new area of your life. On August 11th, Jupiter begins its yearly transit of the Vedic sign of Virgo and brings its benefits according to the sign of your Moon, Rising Sign and Sun.

If you know your Vedic Moon sign, the following descriptions for that sign will give the most accurate results. Your Vedic Rising Sign gives good secondary results. Your Vedic Sun sign brings minor results. If you do not know your Moon or Rising sign, you can read these for your Vedic Sun sign (which is indicated in the parenthesis following each description. But this can also be a great time to consult your Vedic astrologer to determine how the benefits of Jupiter will express themselves in your life!

ARIES (Sun April 14-May 14)

Health should be good during this year, but we do need to be mindful of the diet, particularly sweets. Karma yoga, service as meditation, is an excellent practice now. Good results usually come from litigation this year and enemies can become friends. See if you can see the opportunities in what appear to be obstacles and you will do well!

TAURUS (Sun May 15-June 14)

Create, create, create! There is a new alignment of mental creativity and psychological satisfaction that brings forth new projects, recognition and honor. If you are the right age, it also supports giving birth to a child. All creative enterprises bring great joy and satisfaction. Financial speculation goes very well if we do not throw all caution away.

GEMINI (Sun June 15-July 15)

Jupiter may want us to redecorate, remodel, or otherwise improve our living surroundings. There can be a real tendency to over expend in this area, particularly as we really want to beautify our home. A luxury care purchase is also supported. In general, we tend to feel happy, the emotions are good, and the relationship with the mother (or being a mother!) improves.

CANCER (July 16-August 16)

Jupiter brings good luck to short journeys, our siblings, and can bring a renewed sense of confidence and self-belief. This is a good time to expand our ambitions and have courage to accomplish our goals. Self-expression and communication goes well, but we may also find ourselves having to manage an ever-expanding flow of information.

LEO (August 17-September 16)

Jupiter can now help you relax and enjoy the pleasures of life. There is usually professional and personal recognition, and our words and speaking can be very inspiring. There is often an influx of money and wealth, perhaps connected with family, but we may also experience a need to pay more attention to our spiritual responsibilities.

VIRGO (September 17-October 16)

Jupiter is now in your sign and this brings a sense of expansion to all areas of your life, particularly how you see yourself and your identity. It usually brings good health, but there could be a tendency to weight gain or water retention. It often renews our interest in spirituality and can also be beneficial for our children.

LIBRA (October 17-November 15)

This brings Jupiter into the area of your life connected with meditation, foreign travel, and the bedroom. Positively, you may be able to greatly expand and advance in our meditation practice and other countries or foreign influences can bring prosperity. Yet there is also a possibility of expanding our debt or spending too much time in bed.

SCORPIO (November 16-December 15)

However you define prosperity, material or spiritual, Jupiter has got your name on it. This is year for gains of all sorts – you only need to be clear about what it is you really need. Partnerships become joyous, pleasant travels, and good cooperation with older siblings and your friends. A feeling of all around happiness pervades this time.

SAGITTARIUS (December 16-January 13)

Jupiter gives you a great year to expand the career or add something new to your activities in the outside world. Remember your career is also about the other things you do with your life’s energies besides making money. This could be the year you discover a new expansive side to your ability to accomplish our goals.

CAPRICORN (January 14-February 12)

Teach or find a teacher! You are in for a great year in all things related to higher knowledge, credentialed professions, and even long-distance travel. There can be an addition to the family (maybe that cute kitten?), festive celebrations, and prosperity. This would be the year for that spiritual pilgrimage or extensive purification practice.

AQUARIUS (February 13 – March 13)

It is likely there will be some sort of unexpected wealth, maybe from a $50 rebate off your car insurance to the million dollar great-aunt you had forgotten about. This is also a good time to seek higher knowledge through the occult, yoga, and all transformational practices. You may also benefit from therapeutic endeavors as well as ancient knowledge.

PISCES (March 14-April 13)

This is spring time for all relationships! Good beginnings for new relationships, fresh growth in established ones. Relax your sometimes serious nature and enjoy the pleasures of life, particularly those that can be found in the bedroom (and we’re not talking about watching television). Your power of speech and intelligence are extensively recognized.
