Jupiter in Scorpio: Expand through hope.
It has been a year of retrogrades and some very tough aspects with Uranus, Mars, and the Nodes of fate. Uranus also entered Taurus briefly on May 15, 2018, where he will transit again starting March 7, 2019 through April of 2026.
Uranus in Taurus will shake us and wake us up about natural resources and the Earth, the banking system, and if our value system is in check.
With all of this happening this year, it is hard to connect and realize that there are some very nice aspects at play now. Jupiter is in Sagittarius and wants you to smile! The world is in a lot of pain, and Jupiter in Sagittarius wants to bring some laughter to heal the tears.
On November 26, 2018, there was a beautiful pairing of Jupiter and the Sun in Sagittarius. Jupiter is the master manifestor planet, which opens up doors, bestows optimism and faith, and is very generous and benevolent. Jupiter helps you to magnetize and gives you the hope to do so!
Jupiter is now in its home sign of Sagittarius, where it loves to be more than any other sign. Jupiter initially entered the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius on November 8, 2018, and it will be there through December 3, 2019. As we get further into December, we will start to feel more of the benefits of Jupiter in Sagittarius because we will clear the shadow of Venus and Mercury retrograde by December 19, 2018, and it is full steam ahead!
In the interim, Jupiter made a very inspiring aspect yesterday, and Mercury was not far behind. Mercury rules our thinking, perspective, and communication, and it is part of the Jupiter/Sun lineup in Sagittarius. On November 27, 2018, the Sun in Sagittarius meets up with Mercury at 4:15 AM. Mercury proceeds to meet up with Jupiter at 5:27 pm ET. Although Mercury is still retrograde and in its detriment, these are GREAT aspects!
Reach out to people, send emails, make phone calls, and write down your wishes in a list. This is an excellent time to make a new Vision board of what you want to expand and structure for 2019, as Jupiter will be in its home sign of Sagittarius, where is expands like no other sign. Saturn will also be in its home sign of Capricorn, where it structures like no other sign.
This is a time for writing down your intentions, doing manifesting meditations, and visualizing. Jupiter rules the vision, and it is time to connect with your vision, your hopes, and your generosity of spirit. Life is short and full of difficulties, but there is also much joy and humor available to help us see the light!
Jupiter reminds you to lighten up and have a side of fun with your coffee or tea. I had a father who had Mercury in Sagittarius, and he never stop talking or making bad jokes. He also never stopped seeking information and learning. Time to seek, learn, open your world, and tell a bad joke or two! Humor gets us through the grim times and helps us rebuild to good times.
There is also a helpful influence with Mars, which represents volition and willpower, making a positive influence to Saturn, which structures. Mars in Pisces is not the most efficient placement of Mars, but this helps to structure action. These first few days of the week bring a lot of lucky opportunities, good news, and hope.
Later in the week, there is more of a focus on finishing up the Venus in Retrograde story. Venus initially retrograded at 10 degrees and 55 minutes of Scorpio on October 5, 2018 and stationed direct at 25 degrees of Libra on November 16, 2018.
Venus does not clear its shadow until December 18, 2018, which means we are still reconciling all of the stories and lesson that emerged with Venus retrograde. Some people returned from the past, some karmic relationships began under this cycle, and some realized that current relationships or financial situations are not working for them. Other people had distant and painful memories resurface so that they could process them more in order to heal.
Now that Venus is direct, it is retracing this path and forms an opposition to Uranus on November 30, 2018 at 9:13 pm ET. Venus forms an opposition to the planet of the unexpected, and there could definitely be flareups with matters of the heart. This could influence can bring big endings with relationships and financial arrangements, and Uranus breaks us free from situations.
This is the third and final opposition of Venus and Uranus. the wild child. Remember not to act in haste. However, if indications are becoming more clear to you that something is not right in a relationship or a partnership of any kind, this might bring it to a head and then be done.
It is important to tap into the Jupiter in Sagittarius story because Scorpio is not quite done reigning in on its message to heal blocked wounds. Mercury, which rules our thoughts and ideas, re-enters the fixed and brooding water sign of Scorpio on December 1, 2018 at 6:12 AM and will continue retrograding in Scorpio through December 6, 2018 when it stations direct at 4:22 pm on the New moon in Sagittarius.
Mercury in Scorpio can face the darkness, probes deeply into matters, and uncovers painful truths. Mercury in Scorpio will help to heal the Venus retrograde story. Venus will work right alongside Mercury as she enters Scorpio on December 2, 2018 at 12:02 pm and will remain in Scorpio through January 7, 2018.
Venus finished her eight year cycle since the last Venus retrograde in Scorpio journey that began on October 8, 2018 when she stationed retrograde at 13 degrees of Scorpio. This October and fall brings a new 8 year story around what you want and value. You have already begun your trip through the valley of darkness this fall. You were reminded of what scares you, what threatens your security, and what you really want.
Now is a time to attract what you want in Keen Scorpio fashion but to also let go of the fears and darkness. You can revisit the Scorpio lesson and find our more secrets and wounds that need to be healed; but, it is time to welcome the light with Jupiter in Sagittarius and experience something outside yourself. As a very famous Sagittarius once asked, “Are you experienced?!” Time to learn and get outside of yourself! Time to have some fun!
