” Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” Albert Einstein
Saturday 10th of September marks the ingress of Jupiter in to Libra after spending the last 13 months in Virgo. Jupiter in Virgo has seen the jovial expander and growth merchant apply to all things Virgoan; things such as work, daily routines & habits, health, body & body image. Jupiter has enhanced, exaggerated or increased the focus of these things over the past year. Reflecting and reverberating in the area of life Virgo rules in your birth chart, which Jupiter was activating.
Jupiter in Virgo hasn’t always been easy as Jupiter is in detriment or simply is not completely comfortable in Virgo, it can’t expand as naturally as it would like. The 2 energies just don’t see things eye to eye. This shift into Libra finally sees Jupiter enter a sign that is receptive to Jupiter’s natural expansive behaviour, really gelling with Librian ideals of balance, harmony, relationships, creativity and artistry and justice. This should be a nice shift after the recent events such as Brexit and the refugee crisis. It will be interesting to see how these things are managed now Jupiter has ingressed in to Libra.
This shift of Jupiter is also happening at a time when other big cycles are completing. The much talked about Saturn / Neptune Square makes its final exact hit this week, with its final blast of either delusion busting or creative restructuring which began back in November 2015. This weekend also makes the mid-point of the last of the Virgo / Pisces Eclipses which is also a cycle in its ending. Eclipses are mass cleansing with its deep level affects taking up to 2 weeks – 6 months to manifest or reveal. All this whilst Mercury is retrograde in a sign it rules, Virgo !
Jupiter in Libra is fundamentally about harmony, balance, justice, artistry and relationships. The expansion or exaggeration of these ideals in the area of life transiting Jupiter is hitting when it visits Libra in your chart is how this energy is interpreted. Jupiter is the great gift giver, whether it be grounding or catapulting. Where Libra sits in your chart is the area of life that this Jupiter will grow with a Librian flavour.
Jupiter takes 12 – 13 months to transit a sign making it a once in a 12 – 13 year cycle. The idea of these cycles is you grow and build from the last transit cycle 12 years ago and looking back to the last time Jupiter transited Libra is good to give you clues on what might be relevant or pertinent to you specifically. The last two most recent Jupiter transits of Libra was October 11 1992 – Nov 10 1993 & September 25 2004 – October 25 2005, look to these time periods for clues as to what should be built.
Libra is a Cardinal Air sign. It’s a doer, its intellectual and it loves art, beauty and friendship. Moving on from Virgo’s focus on work, the body and day-to-day routine, this movement is looking to share this expansion with relationships with others and externalize the inner work to an outer world and sphere. There is an element of pleasure and engagement with people, after all the day to day work done after its Virgo transit. With Jupiter in Libra its time to take creative buoyancy and enjoy the smoother waters of a more balanced energy when dealing with creativity and your presentation of self and your engagment with other in the outer sphere. This shift will be a real game changer as we step in to October and we feel a little more breathing space.
