Jupiter enters Taurus

Jupiter dramatically shifts gears on May 16th as he leaves cardinal fire for fixed earth. While in Aries, we may have felt driven and lit up by an idea or project. Now as Jupiter moves into the sign of the Bull, he’s more tempered, measured and thoughtful about his approach. Whereas Jupiter in Aries finds meaning in a challenge and is anxious to initiate action, Jupiter in Taurus values pursuing purpose in leisure while securing a solid foundation.

If Jupiter has brought opportunity to the Aries part of your chart, the meaning in this opportunity may now begin to prioritize the relationship components. As the African proverb goes: If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. Aries, ruled by Mars, goes fast. But Taurus, ruled by Venus, is more interested in peace and partnership which allows a steady pace.

What are of life will Jupiter bless for you?  Let’s take a look at Jupiter in Aries throughout all the signs:

Aries Rising—Jupiter will transit your 2nd House
Jupiter transiting the 2nd often brings new income streams, a raise, or a big boost to our self worth. If you’re long overdue a raise, Aries, ask for it when Jupiter is in your money house! Remember, the opportunity is there, but we have to activate it. A warning: be careful not to overspend as Jupiter can have us feeling more generous towards ourselves and others than we normally are. 

Taurus Rising—Jupiter will transit your 1st House
Get ready for a big year, Taurus! As Jupiter transits the first house of self, your overall outlook to life lifts and brightens. You’re encouraged to envision big while paying attention to opportunities that will initiate a brand new 12-year cycle for you. This is a year of building your sense of self and what you have to offer the world simply by being you. But watch those calories! Jupiter transiting the 1st can have us adding unwanted pounds.

Gemini Rising—Jupiter will transit your 12th House
Looking into our own Pandora’s Box. What do we find there? What have we repressed that is now wanting to express in our conscious life? What has been hidden that comes to light now? This transit is great for retreat and solitary time. Warning: frenemies/enemies could emerge from the woodwork.

Cancer Rising—Jupiter will transit your 11th House
A great time to put some muscle behind your hopes and aspirations. Jupiter will usher in opportunities that could take the form of helpful friendships or social networks that fill your sails with friendly winds. Be on the lookout for dreams coming true!

Leo Rising—Jupiter will transit your 10th House
Your role at work could expand during this time. Your reputation and social standing can make a bigger splash with Jupiter here. If you’re looking to advance in your career, take risks and find more meaning in how you contribute to the world, now’s the time to ride this Jupiter wave as it has the power to carry you far this year.

Virgo Rising—Jupiter will transit your 9th House
An excellent time to expand the edges of your mental and physical frontiers. This could look like going back to school, focusing on spiritual growth, learning astrology or embarking on international travel. The 9th House is associated with all things that grow our minds and our tangible world. Jupiter encourages you to take plant seeds deep and wide!

Libra Rising—Jupiter will transit your 8th House
Jupiter can lend a helping hand in taxes, loans and debt. However, take care not to take on more financial promises you can realistically handle sinking you into greater debt. Opportunity can arise through receiving an inheritance or a windfall you didn’t work for. Your significant other might experience a nice bump in their finances which then affects you. 

Scorpio Rising—Jupiter will transit your 7th House
Significant relationships bloom. Jupiter transiting the 7th can bring in an important person—romantic or not—who you can grow with. If you’re already in a relationship, Jupiter offers optimism and expansion, taking you further down the path together. 

Sagittarius Rising—Jupiter will transit your 6th House
Be proactive with your health now. Schedules can get overly packed exasperating underlying health issues. Time management is important. On the bright side: relationships with people that work for you and/or colleagues turn sweeter thanks to Jupiter’s benevolent presence. It’s also possible to adopt a fur baby during this transit or pay more attention to pets.

Capricorn Rising—Jupiter will transit your 5th House
Jupiter brings Cap Risings growth opportunities around romance, children, or following their passions. Single Capricorns: if you’re looking for love, now is the time to do something about it! For some, the topic of children will take on more importance. And with Jupiter in the 5th, it’s your time to shine! Follow your passions and you’ll be rewarded.

Aquarius Rising—Jupiter will transit your 4th House
Are you thinking about expanding your home, Aquarius? This year could see you bringing home a baby, another relative, or making room for an elderly parent to come live with you. You might entertain moving into a bigger house or building a structural add-on to your home. 

Pisces Rising—Jupiter will transit your 3rd House
Development and opportunity around siblings can present themselves now. The Moon has her joy here so increasing knowledge around pagan wisdom traditions can happen when Jupiter transits the 3rd. You might find that you’re commuting more and making small trips as well. 

As the greater benefic, Jupiter can bless us with good fortune, meaning, abundance, wisdom, growth and optimism in our Taurus house. That said: Jupiter doesn’t guarantee a bonanza in the house he transits. More often than not, opportunity will knock but we have to respond to the call and do our part to evolve it into our lives. It’s a duet, not Jupiter’s solo.

Fortunately, we will have an energizing New Moon in Taurus to plant a new beginning on May 19th, just a few days after Jupiter’s ingress. The presence of Jupiter in our Taurus house will fertilize and cultivate this new beginning for one solid year. In addition, the last eclipse in Taurus will a Full Moon on October 28 will bring us evidence of what we sow now. I’m feeling optimistic about this. I hope you are too!
