Jupiter travels through the sign of Scorpio from October 11 2017 to November 8 2018. The great benefic is usually resident in a sign for a year and during that time will also go retrograde.
Generally Jupiter expands and amplifies the energies of the house it occupies or the planet it aspects, usually this is in a positive manner. We get especially excited when Jupiter is in our Sun or rising Sign as it is supposed to confer fortune, health and happiness for that year. Jupiter can sometimes signify meeting a long-term, romantic partner or job promotion if it falls in H7 or H10 respectively. For this post I will look at how Jupiter will effect the collective through the lens of Scorpio and its decans. My 2018 Horoscopes show how Jupiter in Scorpio will effect you personally.
Jupiter Scorpio Decan 1
Oct 11 to Nov 25 (2017)
There are no specific meanings for Jupiter on any of the stars, but the constellation of the crucifix falls mainly in this decan. This is a double spiritual influence then as Jupiter is associated with religions and gods. Jupiter scoots through this decan quite fast since it does not go retrograde here. Teen idol River Phoenix had Jupiter in Scorpio decan 1 in his first house so he embodies this energy very well…
Jupiter Scorpio Decan 2
Nov 26 (2017) to Jan 20 (2018) ~ Retrograde Apr 26 to Jul 10 ~ Jul 11 to Sep 18
Alphecca 12º “Honor and dignity, artistic ability, benefit through ecclesiastical matters, favorable for material gain.”
Zuben Elgenubi 15º “Hypocrisy, deceit, dishonesty, pretended religious zeal for business purposes, danger of imprisonment.”
Zubenelschemali 19º “Philosophical mind, ecclesiastical or legal preferment, able writer or speaker, influential friends.”
In Scorpio decan 2 resides the Zodiac’s James Bonds. This is the zone of spies, femme fatales, spellbinders, game players, depth psychologists and occultists. The scales of sidereal Libra fall in this section so Jupiter will have to make sure it does not get too greedy as there will always be a payback. Think of the Egyptian goddess Maat who weighed the hearts of the dead. Those who act with integrity and don’t sell out their art will do well here….
Jupiter Scorpio Decan 3
Jan 21 to Mar 8 ~ Retrograde Mar 9 to Apr 25 ~ Sep 19 to Nov 7
Unukalhai 22º “Hypocrisy, deceit, banishment, imprisonment or exile.”
Agena 24º “Intellectual success, legal and Church authority, professional honor.”
Toliman 29º “Great ecclesiastical or legal honor and preferment, ritualistic tendencies, success in foreign countries, favorable for gain.”
This decan of Scorpio functions at the most primal level and has very strong survival instincts. I called this decan Forest Lurkers & Karma Chameleons. This is a pack animal so it is motivated to protect the future of their breed. Jupiter here will amplify devoted parents and proud tribe leaders. Nature is not all pretty flowers and can be savage. A herd may have to sacrifice one of its weakest in order to appease a predator. A few scapegoats will be figuratively thrown under the bus while Jupiter is in this decan. We may have to be cruel to be kind too. This is a period of whistle blowers and revelations. Julian Assange has his Jupiter return during this time, so it will be interesting to see what happens to him. Jupiter is the law, so maybe he finds a way to be free without facing arrest.
