As Jupiter in Scorpio moves through the last four Zodiac Houses, He will make all of us know where He is with his magnanimous presence. These Houses are of great importance as they cover a multitude of interests, our belief systems and our higher education (9th), our social standing and career (10th), our friends, hopes and wishes (11th), and of course, there is the 12th Zodiac House of our karmic past, our own self-undoing, and those hidden and obscure issues we may have brought forward into this lifetime. Nevertheless, with Jupiter’s usual bigger-than-life presence herein, there will be blessings — some may be bittersweet as Scorpio brooks no nonsense when letting us know where we have been misguided. But — I believe that these transits help us to evolve into the dynamic and deserving person we are meant to become. Let’s Tally Ho into the blossoming fray!
Ninth Zodiac House — This is such an inclusive Zodiac House, here we find where we may tend to go for our higher education (Jupiter will bring many offers), also where we might plan our long vacations and travel (this may be the year for that once-in-a-lifetime trip), so important — our religion or belief system that we may have been questioning, (Jupiter in Scorpio will indeed help you focus on the details and ferret out any uncomfortable questions you may have) or you will find a deeper and more divine sense of who you are and where you belong in the Universe, and realize how committed you are to your Faith. You will be thinking about future plans for yourself, and also visiting distant relatives or in-laws. Jupiter in Scorpio will insist you delve deeply into whatever path you are on presently, and will help to cut through the flotsam and jetsam of any underlying factors that have been holding you back. Within this time span it may be important for you to listen more than expound your own theories, to be more accepting of other’s points of view, and temper your most ardent and fixed ideas about all things religious and political. You will have the most luck by being in the moment every day, hearing the truth of your inner being, and by acknowledging what you must do to improve yourself, your situation, and your eternal life.
I love the Ninth Zodiac House because it seems to me we have a lot of input herein, we can choose our pathway, and we are allowed to follow our hearts. Whether our educational goals, our spiritual beliefs, keeping in touch with our distant family members, looking forward to our life unfolding — which is after-all our biggest adventure! With the joyous help of Jupiter in Scorpio, there is an abundance of wonder to behold and we are or should be the willing recipients.
Tenth Zodiac House — The Tenth Zodiac House is at the Top of our chart, the Medium Coeli (MC) or the Midheaven. This House is so important because it has rulership over our careers, our social standing, our most prominent parent, business, and dealing with superiors. Opposite the Fourth Zodiac House of our foundations, a lot of how we deal with this House is because of the input from our parents, teachers and mentors. Any honors we may receive also are highlighted by this House and have an impact on our standing in our community. Mainly, I think of the Tenth House as giving us a heads-up about our career path, job opportunities, avocations or hobbies. Having the Planet Uranus at the top of my Zodiac Chart gave me an interest in learning about more esoteric thinking in the world, which eventually led me to study Astrology, but also Palm Reading, Tarot, and Meditation. Also having the sign Taurus at the top of my Chart, made me practical, plodding, and careful of believing everything I was being taught. I quickly realized that my pathway was learning all I could about Astrology and how it could be of benefit to myself as well as others. It has been a wondrous journey and helped immensely in my being accepting of others whose lifestyles, beliefs, and interests were different from my own. Any combination of Sign and Planet will be of utmost importance in one’s life if posited at the top of your Chart. Also any Planet that opposes one’s MC will have an impact on the way one can use the energies involved.
It behooves us to think about those who are our superiors (bosses, supervisors), and be able to “read” them and their own biases or preconceived notions about the job, ourselves and others. We in the real world have to be able to work among and with many who will not share our ideas, standards, ethics and conscientiousness. Those who realize this dilemma and can keep their demeanor in check will be more likely to succeed in a business environment. Those who must give their opinions vocally with strong emotional verve — may find the higher echelons of the business world not to their liking.
Use Jupiter in Scorpio to enhance and improve your relationships with your business partners and co-workers, you may find you have a bit more know-how now, and can uncover those issues that make your workplace less inviting, and you can find a way to correct the situation. Use subtlety and tact when proposing your own ideas and be inclusive with others thoughts on the subject. Find a way to be acknowledged for your intelligence, common-sense, and keen abilities. But most of all, find something you love to do — learn all you can about that field, and find the best fit for yourself amongst those companies that will cater to your strengths.
Eleventh Zodiac House — herein lies your lifelong friends, acquaintances, and social activities like clubs and organizations that cater to a particular charity or interest. Also housed here are some of your hopes and wishes for your future goals. Especially if they revolve around animals, service to others and/or helping to educate or mentor the young. There is a subtlety to this House that isn’t easily defined — it appears the impact of Planets here seem to need interaction with another or needs to be stimulated by a transiting orb. Much can be accomplished within this Zodiac House if there is someone who has your back. It seems that when we are bolstered by people who care about us, we can accomplish our goals with optimistic and positive ideas. Having a cadre of good and faithful friends is of utmost importance (yes family members can also be friends). The caveat here is to learn to recognize those who have your best interests at heart. It seems those with a prominent 11th House can choose companions who are not truly “good” friends, and they are often dismayed to find they have been betrayed by someone they trusted. Jupiter in Scorpio will enhance your ability to “see” the true depth of a person’s humanity, thus giving you the upper hand in choosing whether or not to allow this person (or persons) into your realm.
Many folks with an active 11th House take on a lot of charitable work, humanitarian efforts and animal rights affairs. Large animals as pets are also included in this wide-ranging House — and there is often an interest in Veterinary work. Clubs, associations, brotherhoods, unions, and guilds may allow you to find those with like tendencies in whatever area you wish to pursue. You will do well with Jupiter in Scorpio to seek out those groups that help to protect, monitor, or safeguard those areas that you wish to be associated with, in order to have more of a positive influence in changing things for the better.
Twelfth Zodiac House — As we come to the end of the Zodiac Circle of Houses we encounter in the 12th House our own misgivings, our fears and often our own self-limitations. However with Jupiter in Scorpio giving us the inside scoop on what has been going on, and what can be accomplished, this might be the year to clean out the cobwebs of our past and renew our commitment to our future goals. After Jupiter has transited this House you can feel like a new person, having discarded the detritus that you have been carrying around for years. It can be as if a light bulb has gone off — chasing the darkness away and bringing a divine light into your life.
Within this House we do bring some of our past transgressions into this lifetime, however, as the Planets traverse the skies and our Zodiac Charts there is a subtle shift in our awareness and our understanding of our journey here on Earth. We can find ways to let go of any previous hurt, past mistakes, being misunderstood by others or even abased by those envious of your inner strength. You can find your own inner light and bring it out into the open by acknowledging your humanity. None of us is perfect — but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep trying to evolve into an ever more humane persona. Reclaim your individuality and identity by cleansing your psyche of old angers, upsets, enemies, and learn to forgive not only those who have done you harm, but also yourself. Let unconditional love flow over and into you like the Sun shining on your body and warming your soul. Let your Spirit soar into the Universal ether where it will be renewed and transformed.
Whilst Jupiter in Scorpio is transiting the 12th House you may find you need to spend more time in closed institutions (hospitals, prisons, or clinics) — however, Jupiter is a bastion of protection and harmony, and Scorpio will only insist that you pay attention to the smallest details to find those positive and/or negative areas you must attend to for your own potential to grow. Make sure you are living a healthy life-style, and try to omit any bad habit you might have. Try to find an exercise plan that works for you — if you don’t enjoy it you won’t continue with the routine. By the end of Jupiter in Scorpio’s tour through this House, you can be free of any guilt, pressure, irritation, and grief — and you will have a plan to move forward to some new and exciting goals. Think positive, find your Bliss!
