Cosmic Insight: Jupiter Enters Virgo

jupiter in virgo-rita minassian steinmetzA major change is occurring in the sky today as Jupiter is entering the sign of Virgo. The planet of gifts and luck will stay there for the next 13 months until September 10th 2016. This change will benefit each one of us in a different way, depending which area of our birth chart Jupiter will be crossing (see below the detailed house by house paragraph).

What exactly can we expect from this shift ?

Jupiter represents expansion, optimism, gifts and luck, and also on a more practical way, faraway lands and legal matters…it will therefore enhance (sometimes exagerates!) the major themes that detail oriented Virgo represents.

After travelling through Leo and its creative, lighthearted and compassionate energies for the past 13 months, Jupiter in Virgo will ask us to embody that creativity and to give birth to the projects we imagined and also to live this compassion on a daily basis, with humility for there’s no place for show off with this shy sign. Virgo is also a factual, discriminating earth sign and will ask tangible proofs and grounding. With Jupiter there’s no place for narrow-minded behaviour and limitation, It’s going to be interesting to see how the planet of expansion and bigger picture is going to widen the horizons of neat picky, precise Virgo for whom, no devil is in the detail !…

Here are a few themes, where we’ll see this grounding occur.

What’s in store for the collective ?

Virgo (and the 6th house ruled by Virgo) represents health and diet, so we can expect major changes in the healthcare system in some countries. “Purity” is widely part of the virginal vocabulary; ecology (Jupiterian theme as well), pollution and the way we consciously “avoid impurities” of the planet will be part of the discussions of our leaders this year. Virgo are known also to fight against all type of microbes and bacterias; Jupiter transiting Virgo may inspire experts in biology to discover a new vaccine.

Virgo represents also services at large, so everything related to customer service in companies can see major improvements. Hopefully this will apply to France (where I’m based) where customer service is sometimes, well…inexistant… :)

Combined to Jupiter which represents laws and legal matters, Virgo which also represents the staff in the zodiac may bring new laws to protect employees, specially those working in the service field (cleaning services/hygiene, waiters/waitresses, sellers/saleswomen, customer services etc…)

Daily life matters a lot to Virgos as well, so this transit of Jupiter will ask us to focus on our daily environment, the daily life of our society and how it works, how it’s managed on a day to day basis.

Pets fall also under the area of Virgo in the zodiac : combined to the energy of Jupiter representing laws, we can expect to see legal texts to be voted to officially protect the animal realm and give it rights.

Let’s see now how this Jupiter transit in Virgo can affect you, house by house for the 12 houses of the zodiac.

What to expect from Jupiter house by house ?

This is no more time to follow other people’s opinion and preferences but to follow your own desires, to make decisions and take actions that meet your personal needs and expectations in life. No place for compromises motivated by guilt anymore, you’re going to give yourself permission to be who you really are as an individual and not who the others expect you to be… In one word, this is the time to ground your own definition of happiness, for the consent you give to yourself is all that counts; big time for personal empowerment !

  • You are experiencing Jupiter in Virgo in your 9th house of faraway lands, higher education, legal matters and laws including cosmic laws ruled by Jupiter itself, lucky you ! During the next 13 months you will visit at least one foreign country, probably a place you’ve never visited before, you will enjoy this travel very much ! You’ll be interested and will like everything related to foreign cultures, such as their customs or food. Everuthing “exotic”will be appealing to you!

If you don’t travel physically, you may expand your consciousness with « spiritual travels » by expanding your knowledge in this field. Higher education and university diplomas are favoured under this placement as well. If school time is history for you, you may expand your knowledge via training classes. All legal matters are also related to this house, so if you were struggling in a court case, or even for citizenship, prepare for a positive outcome. 

  • Jupiter is crossing your 10th house of recognition and rewards ruled by Saturn ? Big time on the public front for you ! Time to get noticed socially and to get the support of mentors. It’s a time to shine and be recognised in your field of expertise.

On the private front with Jupiter in Virgo in the 10th, you may also get married (or move in) with a lifetime partner ; lasting commitment is in the picture for you…
  • If Jupiter is crossing your 11th house of hopes and wishes, network and friendship such as charity and political commitment ruled by Uranus; expect to see the support of your network and friends.

On a practical point of view, the 11th house rules also computers and electronics, so during the next months, these topics may be significant for you as well.
  • Eventually, if Jupiter is crossing your 12th house of retreat ruled by Neptune; you may feel the transit of Jupiter is not that significant for you in this house. This is not the case ! Jupiter will act behind the scene for you, enhancing your dream world for example : I strongly advice you to keep track of your dreams during these months for some of them may give you the key to change your life for the better. Introspection will be favoured as well as artistic endeavour and inspiration, contemplation… You may also experience a mystical or religious epiphany, meditate more and improve your psychic abilities. You may feel more connected to nature and to the Universe as a whole… brilliant !

During this 13 months transit, there will be times Jupiter will square off Saturn (restriction, restructuring) and will be opposite Neptune (ideal or illusion?). You may feel that something is limiting your efforts (Saturn) and blurring your optimism and energy (Neptune)… Don’t let this short transits sabotage your enthusiasm for they will pass ! Actually, Jupiter in Virgo will join the North Node in an exact conjunction in December 2015/ January 2016; the Universe is telling us that we have an appointment with our destiny… So keep faith (one of Jupiter’s gift) and everything will fall into perfect place. 

Of course, lucky Virgos (like me :) and people with planetary placements in Virgo will benefit most from this transit that occurs every 12 years only! (try to recall how significant this transit was for you from August 2003 to September 2004…). Dear fellow Virgos, you are crowned from the Universe as kings and queens of the zodiac for the next 13 months when everything is going to be possible, make the best of it !
