Jupiter says “I expand.”


Preface: Many people are of the mindset that Jupiter is always benevolent. And, it may be. However, I am of the mindset that words like “always” and “never” are generally too black-and-white in their simplicity. Jupiter in any sign is generally benevolent in my interpretation; however, the optimism and expansion associated with Jupiter energy can go to an extreme that leaves the native out of balance…in a type of euphoric state of supposed everlasting “utopia.” And, “utopia” may be a highly individualized idea. Also, the painting above was created by yours truly. Matte framed prints available soon…

jupiter IN ARIES

Jupiter in Aries tends to be about expansion in the realm of assertion! That said, Jupiter in Aries may fall into any part of a spectrum that can be considered an enlargement of the asserted Will: healthy assertion or natural benevolence each time assertion is demonstrated; taking more action in the areas of travel, spirituality + philosophy; and/or expansion in aggressiveness or war, with the fueled mindset that extremism or evangelical authoritarianism will bring benevolence. These are examples to various parts of a spectrum that may have a hand in the Jupiter in Aries native. It all depends on the overall natal chart. Get your reading for more detailed information!

jupiter IN TAURUS

Jupiter in Taurus, in my experience, can show up on the spectrum of supposed “jovial expansion.” Some may experience Jupiter in Taurus as an expansion into the realm of materialism, consumerism, sensuality, and overall rootedness in one’s “home” (whether country/political, literally built shelter/home, and/or otherwise rooted somehow – in belief or “reality” of belief). This tendency can also lean towards hedonism – a personal attachment to that which is, ultimately, a transpersonal energy. Since Jupiter acts as the beginning to a bridge toward the transpersonal planets, this particular planet and its placement in the natal chart becomes more detailed in a way. Regardless, Jupiter in Taurus may be just what the individual needs and/or what the collective needs on some level. The house placement + motion of Jupiter overall will offer further insight…

jupiter IN GEMINI

Jupiter in Gemini is an interesting energy! Jupiter rules the opposite sign, Sagittarius; so, when Jupiter appears in Gemini the energy tends to focus on the changeable energy within the mind itself. From my experience, this type of dynamic tends to play out over a lifetime so that living beyond roughly 30 years of age, things become clearer. Yes, as with many things, this specific energy is linked with Saturn returns! It sort of builds as a check-out-everything energy first – “fact” and “illusion” and inner and/or outer “truth” is constantly questioned and modified over time. I cannot say this energy is every truly “clear” for any native; however, it seems to solidify into something (even if that something is stubbornly fluid) later in life. At a very base level, the energetics of Jupiter in Gemini finds settlement in amplifying communication on all levels – whether it be through magnifying random rumors through various social media or community-oriented outlets; magnifying messages through various spiritual or religious avenues; and/or magnifying a musician’s prominence in one’s life. Overall, this energy can be like making-a-mountain-out-of-a-molehill on a mind level. This tendency is not necessarily “bad” nor “good” – it is what it is. Get your own natal chart reading for further detail!

jupiter IN CANCER

Jupiter in Cancer is highly feeling-oriented. It can be like a tsunami, a perfect surfing session, or a gentle current of water…but because we’re dealing with Jupiter in Cancer, the plentiful ocean is a wonderful image to begin with. Cancer is connected with the Moon, which both dictates and is dependent on the tides. It’s a case of the egg and the chicken…which came first? In this case, it doesn’t matter. They are dependent on one another in some form or another, and with Jupiter acting as the orchestrator of the energy flow…well, we’re talking “big” or “expansive” exploration! This energy is like any classical masterpiece that plays on the emotional tides in a big way (think: Mozart). So, a tsunami, the perfect surfing conditions, and a gentle current of water all depict part of what Jupiter holds: it’s “big” and “moving” and “jovial,” depending on what each individual finds resonance with. Since we’re dealing with two energies that can be rather unpredictable in a way, their combination in one’s natal chart can bring on all sort of possibilities – what one might find joyful and emotionally comforting may be an Other’s worst nightmare! The natal chart reading tends to be my recommendation for more beyond these insights; that type of reading is far more uniquely tuned in with YOU!

jupiter IN LEO

Jupiter in Leo is the performer of all performers! That’s not totally true. Most major performers probably do not have this precise placement of energy; still, many famous performers actually do. The point is that the Jupiter in Leo native tends to have a high potential for things like the performance arts, politics or law, and creative + artistic sectors on some level. As with any other Jupiter placement, there is capacity to “hold more” – whether that be ‘positive’ or ‘negative’ or somewhere in between is up to the individual Will and its underlying motives and intentions. Some Jupiter in Leo natives may be overtly narcissistic; others may somehow shine brighter than others without the overt “me-only” attitude. Still others may be natural philanthropists with the strong desire to bring communities together. Regardless, their found luck tends to be in the spotlight! Leo’s opposite sign is Aquarius, and these two (like all other opposite signs) have a connection: their opposition is intrinsically part of how the Jupiter in Leo native may choose to expand themselves. This energy is like the Sun…on fire! Yes, the Sun is already understood to be “on fire”…but imagine the Sun as twice its own size. That’s Jupiter in Leo. For further insight + information, feel free to reach out for a natal chart reading.

jupiter IN VIRGO

Jupiter in Virgo will be sure to expand the mind’s details! Jupiter in Virgo is a dynamic energy all on its own (Jupiter rules Sagittarius, which is square – dynamic energy – to both Gemini and Virgo). Depending on the house placement and the overall energy in a natal chart, Jupiter in Virgo will tend to enlarge what seems rather small. Scientists, biochemists, biologists, mathematicians, physicists, technical editors, monks, gurus, and the like – these are types that may have some form of Jupiter in Virgo in their life-playing-cards. Jupiter in Virgo energy is balanced in both logic and intuition; the house placement may shed light on where that balance may be enacted. Still, it is up to the Jupiter in Virgo native to actually balance that ever-expanding energy that Jupiter proffers. In short, Jupiter in Virgo is like the Buddhist who follows the Zen-like-path to some kind of perfection. It can be highly in tune with spirituality, religion, or belief structure in general – and whatever feels “healthy” is what’s sought ofter. Of course, if this same person has Jupiter in Virgo in the 6th, they may have digestive issues based on what lies beneath their attachment to belief structure! Again, Jupiter is expansive…but there is a balance to be found…

jupiter IN Libra

The Jupiter in Libra individual is on top of diplomacy skills. These are the transpersonal compromisers! The energetic expansion + skill in diplomacy can have various gateways. Depending on the “where” (the house position) + the overall natal chart amalgamation, the Jupiter in Libra native may be self-oriented, other-oriented, or somewhere in-between with this vibration. Donald Trump has this placement. It falls in his 2nd House… which is about money, worth, self-worth, stability, security, etc. His luck with monetary pursuits + skills in the appearance of diplomacy = something interesting based on his overall story. I won’t go into it too much, but I will reiterate that skills of “compromise” can be founded upon the needs of Self, of Other, of Community, etc. This transpersonal vibrational imprint is felt differently by different filters (aka, you, me, etc.). Anyhow, Jupiter in Libra is a very, very charming energy. Overall, Jupiter in Libra is like the teacher on “both sides” of anything since it expands itself into both realms extensively. Get your own natal chart reading for more…

jupiter IN SCORPIO

The Jupiter in Scorpio native is working with Pluto energy + expansion. What does that mean? Many, many potentials. Jupiter is actually currently in Scorpio at the time of this post. What’s going on for the collective? Do you see the power struggles? The greed? The exposures on sexual assault? These can be examples of the energy in action, for sure. Being born with Jupiter in Scorpio does NOT mean that these are the themes, however (get your natal chart reading for your overall energy). The themes involved with this energy do tend to center around expansion of Plutonian energy, though. Empowerment. Sexual freedom and/or powerful beliefs around what “freedom” means on the emotional + sexual front. Passions to the extreme. Powerful healing in confronting and working with the depths. Overall, this energy can be like the psychic helping the investigator in solving a case. Power + freedom with a touch of justice are involved. The energy calls for adventure into the depths, possible mass destruction, and yet an abundance of healing at the same time…


Jupiter in Sagittarius is at home! Since Jupiter rules Sagittarius (and in some mindsets, Pisces as well), Jupiter can expand your mind in its most benevolent form. Of course, Jupiter can be quite benevolent in any sign or house placement; still, its home territory has a certain flavor + focus. The Jupiter in Sagittarius lightbody may be quite philosophical, travel-oriented, seeker-oriented, or otherwise oriented to expand a worldview or two…or three or four…so on. The energy is not generally seen as fundamentalist or extreme unless in contact with other indicators that seem to force it to behave as such. Get your natal chart reading for further insight into your individual makeup, if you wish! We will experience this transpersonal planet’s energy on the collective level beginning in November of 2018. Keep in mind what’s going on now to gain a glimpse into what might be next…


Jupiter in Capricorn is like taking all the cognition from Jupiter in Sagittarius and moving it into recognition (re-cognition). What does that mean? Well, in short, it is kind of like having a ton of thought matter flow around for a year – and then the manifesting from that material begins. Some people become highly recognized in life when they have this energy in their natal charting. Famous and/or infamous, to be sure. I immediately thought of Bill Cosby, for some reason while typing that. I just looked up his chart – lo and behold, he was born with Jupiter in Capricorn. I won’t speak to his overall energy, but, to say the least, he has taken on the role of being both famous + infamous in his life so far. When the expansive and freedom-loving planet Jupiter gets “boxed in” with the highly-boundary-oriented energy that is Capricorn, there can be a mixing pot of repressed energy seeking release. There can also be a noticeable thriving through whatever public position the individual takes on. The “how” and the “where” this energy shows up is one part free will + one part blueprinting in this astrologer’s view. Get your natal chart reading if you’re seeking more insight! With this energy, it is wise to keep in mind that we may design our lives one way, and they show up another way… it all depends on our individual vibrations as we move through this thing we call life.  


Jupiter in Aquarius is like the higher mind on overdrive! With full disclosure, I was born with this placement in my 1st House. I both do and do not resonate with my own forthcoming description here…because as I write, I draw from a certain place that is not extremely personal. That said, the Jupiter in Aquarius native may have a “strange” influence on the collective. The energy is essentially dealing with abundance + higher mind + individualism. That combination can show up in oh, so many ways. Part of its expression is tapped into through the natal chart, as the individual house placement dictates “where” the energy shows up. Still, and to name a few strings playing from one instrument, Jupiter in Aquarius can offer high levels of eccentricity, high levels of individualism, high levels of 6th, 7th, 8th…senses, and more. These are the innovators, the entrepreneurs, the extremely progressive minds, and the random people on the street that offer you some synchronicity in your life. Communicate with your higher mind much? Here it one type of energy for you to acquaint yourself with, well, YOU!

jupiter IN PISCES

Jupiter in Pisces is like adding a huge dose of hope + joy to an abundance of illusion. What? Let me explain. This type of energy can be incredibly productive and conducive to spiritual evolution – especially on the collective scale. Simultaneously, there can be a rose-colored glasses feel to it for some. It all depends on the energy leading up to its inception. For example, the last time Jupiter was in Pisces was in 2010. What was happening in 2010? Well, as an example, Obama was president in the United States, and Obamacare showed up shortly after Jupiter moved into this sign. I personally STILL have no clear understanding of this healthcare system, even though I know I support the ideal of it. Was the ideal made real? Not sure. Energetically, Jupiter in Pisces introduces ideals for the masses – whether or not they continue to manifest into collective Oneness + mass Reality is up to us and our movement. I do personally have a clear “marker” of this energy in my own system…do you? How did the energy show up for you? How might you revisit this energy in 2022? It isn’t that far away, and 2022 seems to have a LOT of implications astrologically. Get your natal chart reading + transit reading here, if you’re interested!
