October 6th ~ 13th
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
~ J.R.R. Tolkien
Jupiter enters Scorpio on Tuesday, October 10th, where it will remain until November 2018. Jupiter in Scorpio has the capacity to make that which simmers beneath the surface, that which we shamefully hide away and pretend does not exist, conscious and visible. We are all going to be compelled to sit with, and be comfortable with ourselves, our conscience, our motives. All of us: the good, the bad, the shameful and the ugly. Positively this is probably one of the better times to address all the scorpions that lie beneath, and honestly face what needs to be fixed within society as well as in our own souls. From the powerful, with governments, large corporations, the collective powers that be, the ugly stuff in society, down to the individual, all will need to be addressed. And through healing, acceptance, purification and profound renewal, we can heal and grow through the power of Jupiter in Scorpio.
Jupiter can heal, but it also expands and exaggerates the qualities of the sign it i traveling in. In Scorpio this can include the expansion of the darkness, of death, murder, war and mayhem, and all the not as wonderful things this sign has a reputation for. Sometimes we need to come face to face with our darkness in order to remedy it, in order to make sense of it, and in order to learn a better way of doing things. As Jupiter travels through Scorpio it will be supported by Neptune and Chiron, as well as Scorpio modern ruler, Pluto. With these, we get the sense of transforming, of growing and evolving through understanding. And through this process deep occult and hidden truths can also be revealed.
Jupiter brings the things of Scorpio to the foreground of our lives; whether it’s birth, death and rebirth; power and wealth; sexuality; the redistribution of resources; and renewable energy. These are all subjects that we are going to be talking about. Jupiter can benefit the sign it travels through. And in Scorpio this includes on the one hand shared resources and investments; loans; on the other anything to do with the deep recesses of the psyche and instinct. Scorpio is the sign in which we entomb all those things that we prefer not to deal with or talk about, things that we consider to be shameful: sex, mental illness, addiction, death, the underworld, all that is taboo. What Jupiter in Scorpio can do is heal through understanding. Even death, as the after-death states become a new world to explore when Jupiter travels here.
Jupiter in Scorpio is about discovering buried treasure, literally and figuratively. Discoveries in general are made, ancient archeological digs reveal secrets, talents are appreciated, and that which was previously considered worthless is seen as valuable. Scorpio is about investing in renewable energy and resources; it is about recycling and reusing. It is about scavenger hunts, thrift stores, and sunken ships. Jupiter in Scorpio sees value where others fail to. Scorpio represents all things that are hidden and just waiting to be discovered. Galileos said that “All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.”
So it is with all discoveries and realizations. They are just waiting for someone to come and figure it all out. There are so many things to discover within the Scorpio domain, while Jupiter, the explorer, is traveling here: occult knowledge, magic, tantric knowledge, secret or hidden talents, buried treasure, hidden artifacts. Scorpio is a sign of deep transformation and profound change, and can also be associated with renewable energy and resources, recycling and reusing; purification, healing and rehabilitation. It is the sign of the detective, the puzzle solver, the occultist and the Magician. The more perplexing and challenging the problem, the better! But once a discovery is made, we will never be able to see things quite the same way again. So may we all come to see the light next year, through our combined exploration of the subterranean depths of Scorpio.
