On Tuesday, Jupiter moves from Libra into Scorpio for a thirteen-month stay.
Frankly, I’m happy about this major planetary event. Jupiter is in my first house right now. That’s supposed to be a position that leads to overindulgence and weight gain. I feel like I’m getting fatter every time I step on the scale. I have gained some weight, but a lot of it is muscle. I usually don’t lift weights a lot during the summer because I have so many other things to do. Being unemployed for the past three months, however, allowed me to keep up my routine in the gym. My arms and shoulders are carrying a lot of that weight. I have this lovely Naked and Famous shirt in a tiger print that I can barely button up nowadays because it’s so tight around my pecs and shoulders. I really like that shirt! I was in Helmut Lang in Las Vegas when the salesperson asked me if it was Gucci. I know, right?
Anyway, enough about my fat ass. Jupiter represents abundance wherever it lands in your chart. It moves into my second house in about two months from now. Hopefully, my wallet will be the thing that gets fat once that happens. Interestingly, its retrograde phase takes it back within nine minutes of my second-house cusp, but it never actually backtracks into my first house. That’s a relief!
As far as everyone else is concerned, Jupiter in Scorpio should act like an ice jam on a glacial lake. All the passive/aggressive bullshit associated with Jupiter in Libra has resulted in a build-up of pressure. While that pressure won’t be relieved immediately, it will be relieved. And when it does, watch out! I don’t live in the USA, but I can’t help but thinking that the Mueller investigation is going to come to a rather catastrophic conclusion that will reshape the political landscape for years to come.
On a mundane level, it’s a good time to look inward in order to develop some empathy. Scorpio natives can have a difficult time trying to put themselves in other people’s shoes without relating everything back to their own experiences. Sometimes it’s nice just to shut your trap, nod your head and reflect upon what it must be like to be someone else. In “Real Housewives” parlance, it’s a good time to be “nice” like Dorinda Medley, and a bad time to be anything like Ramona Singer.
Click on my 2017 Horoscopes for a little more information. The next big planetary event is a couple of days before Christmas, when Saturn enters Capricorn for a two-and-a-half-year stay. Around that time, I should post some 2018 horoscopes. Now that my book is done, I’ve resolved to keep up this blogging thing, but we’ve all heard that before . . .
