Completing the Zodiac Circle of Houses we will peruse the 9th through 12th Houses — Jupiter in Libra will bring its own kind of beauty, excesses and balance to each of these Houses according to the Planets that might live there and their placement within the Circle. These Zodiac Houses are important because they can show us our educational interests or goals, our spiritual needs and desires, our yearning to travel long distances (9th House) — also, the 10th House holds our social standing and perhaps our career goals, the 11th House is where our hopes and dreams reside along with our friends, and the 12th House is the karmic House of self-undoing, hospitals, prisons and any place of confinement.
So we will see what might transpire throughout the transit of Jupiter in Libra’s more optimistic outlook and genuine ability to see both sides of a question — we have an entire year to use the brilliance and balance of Jupiter in Libra for our own agenda — don’t miss out on this once in 12 year occasion!
Jupiter in Libra in the 9th House – The 9th House of the Zodiac holds so many variants of our lives — here we find our higher educational goals, our spirituality and religiosity, our desire for long distance travel (although) opposite the 3rd House perhaps short trips too! Also opposite our 3rd House may bring some concern about siblings, old neighbors, in-laws, and in general some unease about those relatives you may not have seen for some time. But we digress — the 9th House is such a busy House, those who may have children looking into colleges will have a boost from Jupiter in Libra allowing you to balance the pros and cons of each school. Also, Jupiter in Libra may help to clear up some legal issues that have been pending for some time with a positive outcome. On a high note, that long-dreamed about vacation could come to pass this year — especially if there is some higher purpose in your journey — seeing elderly relatives, volunteering for some social or educational activity, or maybe just that once in a lifetime trek that you truly deserve.
All of these possibilities can become your reality this year. Find a way to enhance anything you’ve planned by looking ahead and finding those extras that may help to either get you to your goal, or might allow you to take a longer and more interesting journey. Along those lines, you may find that someone is willing to help you in your endeavors. A mentor, or friend who is interested in the same field might be a source of information that will help, or one who knows a way to get you to the right place at the right time.
During this passage of Jupiter in Libra you may find a source of new spirituality — perhaps attending a new church or temple, or just by having that awe-inspiring moment in Nature that makes you realize that life is precious and worth living to the full. Or it may be that you find re-consecration for yourself in your present beliefs that open a whole new area of interest wherein you find yourself doing meaningful work — mentoring or volunteering. Also, you may find that you are fascinated by philosophy and begin to study the elder’s works. Or you may find a New Age belief system that fits your spiritual and idealistic needs. Be prepared to be amazed and awed by your new view of life and love.
Jupiter in Libra will pique your interest in learning new things, will find you perusing libraries for information, or perhaps looking up your ancestors to find out just where they came from and how they managed to survive and thrive throughout the ages. The 9th House holds so many varied and stimulating areas that with the help of Jupiter in Libra you will be amply provided with the energy to find your bliss!
Jupiter in Libra in the 10th House — Here we have the pinnacle of our charts (the Mid-Heaven) where our careers are located, our social standing (popularity) is enhanced, and where we might find our dominant parent, also any government associations, our responsibility to our families, our companies, and our personal goals. Here we can find any honors or adulation we might receive for work well done, or for service to our country. Our ambition and motivation to get ahead resides herein. Opposite the 4th House of home, you may find that your zeal to get to the top of the corporate ladder is interfering with your duties to your family and home life. There will always be some conflict between these two Houses, the 4th being our foundations and early childhood memories — and the 10th House that holds our own personal ambitions and need for social standing. This antagonistic relationship can often be our undoing when trying to balance our responsibilities. However, with Jupiter in Libra in residence, there should be some happy way to find an amenable reality. Perhaps you will find a way to work from home more — or find some extra time for one-on-one time with children and/or spouse (so important).
Depending on your age, this could be a wonderful year for you to push your own agenda to reach your personal goals, get that promotion, upgrade your domicile, or find new ways of melding your work and home obligations. Jupiter in Libra is a wonderful chance for you to take measure of where you are and where you want to be — in 5, 10 or 20 years from today. Perhaps a 12-year plan might work as Jupiter will once again be in Libra coming full-circle in the year 2028! You may laugh, but timing is everything when looking ahead, and with Jupiter in Libra in the 10th House, you know that good things, happy times, and success can be yours. Working within the confines of the Planetary movements and transits is one way to prepare yourself for what is coming up in the future. Just knowing when the good-luck Planet will be in your 10th House is power and time for preparation!
In opposition to the 4th House, you may find yourself selling your childhood home, or resettling elderly parents into an assisted living arrangement. You also may realize that time is quickly slipping into the future and those goals you want to reach will have to be intentionally planned for, if you are going to realize them in a clearly defined amount of time. Now, with the help of Jupiter in Libra’s energy and ability to get everything into balance, this is the time for you to promote yourself and your ideas. Bring the gift of Jupiter’s largess to yourself and your loved ones by striving for the best and most satisfying lifestyle you can hope to find. Remember to include all those who have helped you succeed and you will receive your generosity back ten-fold. Make this is your year to shine — become the leader, innovator, mover and shaker of your field and reap your Jupiter in Libra rewards.
Jupiter in Libra in the 11th House — The Eleventh House holds our dearest and closest friends, (don’t be surprised when you realize many of them are in the same Zodiac sign). It also harbors our fondest hopes and wishes — not necessarily our goals, but those familial and acquaintance connections that bring us that feeling of belonging to a tribe, group, clan, society, or community in which we feel comfortable and at home. Also many of our social contacts will be found herein, social/country clubs, factions, families, cliques, workplaces, and any group to which we might feel we are a part. Traditions are important and a sense of togetherness, attachment and devotion will bring us to those whom with we have a karmic tie.
With Jupiter in Libra taking up residence here, we may find our social schedule will be filled with parties, organizational meetings, work-related conferences, family get-togethers, and gatherings of many kinds. With Jupiter in Libra, I’m sure you already sense that balancing your time will be of utmost importance. Indeed, Jupiter often brings too much of a good thing — but Libra sees the difficulty in organizing your personal, work, and companionable times. Try to find a way to attend as many functions as you can, but be aware of the consequences of missing an important family or friend’s event.
Also with Jupiter in Libra, you may be re-evaluating your acquaintances, friends and/or companions throughout this year, perhaps realizing that many of your many “friends” are hangers-on, or just not in the same space as you are now. Not that you should eliminate these folks from your life, but perhaps find a different way to interact with them on a more flexible schedule. You may also find some new acquaintances seem to be on your personal wave-length and you are clicking as if you were friends for years. Take your time in embracing these people until you have known them a little longer — sometime that first blush of meeting has a romantic or serendipitous start that won’t hold up over time. Still — opposite the 5th House of romance — this may be your year to meet the one!
If you are feeling a little sidelined by some old pals, try to reconnect now while Jupiter is smiling down upon you — it may have been that they got caught up in their own issues and didn’t want to burden you with what was going on. Allow them to vent, explain or clear up any misunderstandings and be open to forgiveness. Of course — friendship is a two-way street and if you have been doing all of the calling, it may be time to cut those strings. It’s a work in progress when we choose to allow people into our lives, there is an ebb and flow to our relationships — sometime there are those who appear just when we need them — never to be heard from again. And you, yourself may be that very same person to someone else.
Think of all the ways that Jupiter in Libra could influence your life for the better, and work toward those goals that you truly want to come to fruition. With the upcoming Holiday seasons, it is the perfect time for you to reconnect with those you love and who love you. Don’t let this unique time-span pass by without reviewing your connections — whether family, friends, acquaintances, or companions. Make this the year you find those who will always have your back, who love you unconditionally and who will be there for you forever.
Jupiter in Libra in the 12th House — Our 12th Zodiac House holds so many secrets — our past lives, our own fears, doubts and uncertainties — also our personal misgivings, our suspicions and our inner worries. It is called the House of Self-Undoing, because so often it is here that we hold on to old wounds, we cannot let go of our inner fears, and we self-deprecate. Here in the 12th House is that tiny whispering voice we hear that berates us with its constant barrage of anxiety and irrelevance . Time for that to be put to a stop! Now with Jupiter in Libra it is time to realize your self-worth — not with overtones of grandeur — but with a true account of just how good, smart, loyal, understanding, loving and caring you are! Stop listening to those naysayers, or critics or jealous cohorts — and also stop berating yourself with those childhood issues, or words from that teacher who should have retired years earlier, or from any source that has allowed you to feel you were less than you are — indeed — sometimes it takes years to overcome some bullying experience, or nasty comments from an inferior human who just wanted to make themselves feel better, or a trauma that was not your fault.
Now is the time, with Jupiter in Libra to find your true balance in this lifetime, your true bliss, and your most evolved persona! Now may be the time for you to take a look back to see how far you have come in this lifetime. You are no longer that bullied child, the teacher’s whipping boy, or anyone’s punching-bag. Just the fact that you are a human-being gives you the right to feel proud, unique, individual, feeling, empathetic, and perhaps most of all respected and worthy of love.
Jupiter in Libra can free your mind and heart from all of the burdens you may have been carrying for years. There is a mystical light within you that needs to be seen — an inner beauty that will enrich all those who know you — and the knowledge that you are worthy, worthwhile, and a wonder to behold! Jupiter can bring a plethora of good feelings that will lift your heart and allow you to truly see yourself as the wonderful human being you are and have been. Libra opens our hearts to love, commitment and all of the beauty in this magnificent world we live in. Allow yourself to breathe in the heady ethereal vapors of life being lived to the full. Fill your heart and soul with the knowledge that you are as precious as any treasure on Earth — feel yourself filled with the enormous love that you so deserve. Opposite the 6th House, we may have to deal with an elderly parent or friend who needs extra care or should be in assisted living. Also, there may be a trip to a hospital to see someone who is ill or has had an unfortunate accident. Your usual helpful self will bring joy and comfort to those in need.
Often, our House divisions are not exact — i.e., they don’t go from zero degrees to thirty degrees, but rather flow into the next House — the 12th House will lead into the 1st House, and here lie your innate hopes and wishes — you might be able to feel the change when Jupiter in Libra moves into the 1st House, a subtle shift of priorities — and herein, you will be able to put forth your own dreams and desires for your future and the future of your loved ones. Use these transits of the Planets to your advantage, and let the Universe help you to be the best and most perfect YOU — that you can be! Release any old anger, fright, trauma or limitation you may feel — and find your new and renewed self! This could be the year that you find your true identity, your inborn spirit, and your soul-self — imagine how free and happy you will be when you shed those dark clouds from your life. Imagine Bliss!
