5 Things To Expect From Jupiter In Scorpio!

Jupiter in Scorpio 2017 2018 meaning what to expect

The largest known planet in our solar system, Jupiter, enters the magnetic, dynamic and energetic sign Scorpio on October 10th, where it will stay until November 8th, 2018. Jupiter in Scorpio is nothing if not extremely passionate and powerful about it, for better or worse.

 

Jupiter is often called the planet of luck, but more often it is “luck” as found through growth, experimentation, openness to new opportunities, willingness to learn and willingness to flow in new directions.

 

In Scorpio, we’ll be flowing through the deep currents of psychology, pathology, forensics, research, investigation… a spiritual quest to find hidden knowledge. Knowledge is power; this is true regardless but it’s a lesson that hits home harder during Jupiter in Scorpio. By understanding what’s really going on at the deepest level, one will have won, succeeded, survived, beaten the odds.

The Full Moon at 12 degrees Aries on October 5th, 2017 (exact 1:40 PM CST) is a high voltage one. Full Moons always oppose the Sun, so we’re talking about working the Aries-Libra axis here: “I” versus “We”, balanced consideration versus fired up decisive action. Both Aries and Libra are cardinal signs, initiative, pushy, bossy. Both the Sun in Libra and the Full Moon in Aries square Pluto at 16 degrees Capricorn, another cardinal sign; thus forming a configuration known as a cardinal T-square.

Sometimes you just look at a Full Moon and know why the word¬†lunacy¬†shares the same root word as lunation. The Full Moon at 17 degrees Capricorn of July 8th/9th (exact July 8th at 11:07 PM CST) is opening the gates of… somewhere dark, deep down below. The Full Moon is in fall in Capricorn, not feeling at home here anyway. The Sun at 17 Cancer will be widely conjunct fixed star Sirius (given how bright Sirius is, I’m generous with the orb here); the Full Moon will be tightly conjunct Pluto retrograde at 18 degrees Capricorn. Both Sun and Moon square Jupiter at 13 degrees Libra, forming a configuration known as a cardinal T-square. Layers and layers of energy and intensity. And you better believe it’s pissed off, rage filled energy with Mars included at 22 degrees Cancer, also in the sign of its fall and struggling to find healthy expression. Mars is conjunct fixed star Pollux, known for telling stories most would rather not hear (Julian Assange has Mercury conjunct Pollux, for example).

The dog days of summer is a common expression, though not everyone knows where the saying originated. It is an astrological/astronomical reference to the fixed star Sirius, aka the “dog star” located in the Canis Major constellation. Sirius is a fixed star in the Western tropical zodiac sign of Cancer, and experiences its heliacal rising (aka becomes most visible on the eastern horizon just before sunrise) during Cancer season.

 

Many old farmers almanacs will list the dog days as being from July 3rd to August 11th, with Sirius making its big appearance around July 19th. However, the days leading up to Sirius’ heliacal rising were usually considered to be the sultriest. As Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky,
