This is special – so I wrote an article for those of you who want to dive deeper! Jupiter is shifting from expansive Sagittarius to the consolidation of Capricorn. The last time we experienced this energy was 2007 (Sag) and 2008 (Capricorn). We’ve learned that what we believe to be true or possible for ourselves & the world is usually what we act upon and now we are about to learn that whatever we focus on grows & expands. So, in Capricorn, what are you responsible for? How do your beliefs now have to serve a purpose in some way? Sovereignty & Inner Authority are going to be a focus for learning over the next year.
Jupiter comes along to shift our generally-accepted beliefs and philosophies. It asks you to stretch your awareness to include some new possibilities. It spends approximately 1 year in each Sign, activating those lessons in the areas of your life (House) it travels through. We learn something every year, then 1-2-3 years in a row – and your consciousness evolves & changes. This is a fantastic opportunity to review the last 12-year cycle and CHOOSE what Story you’d like to tell over the course of the upcoming 12-year cycle. Whatever you wanted (or tried) to do (approximately) 12 years ago (2008), you may not have been ready then … you are NOW and the Universe unequivocally supports YOU!
Jupiter has a 12-year cycle. Jupiter represents our consciousness, our belief systems, how we learn and teach through games, travel, creativity and story-telling. What is your story? Make sure your Story is authentic and teaches as well as it shares, delights, entertains, unifies, expands & uplifts those who get to share your Story – and your life. Jupiter is the Researcher & the Truth Sayer, and is all about making meaning out of the available information & experiences. It also tends to provoke you to “keep your own counsel” – going within to connect with the deepest and most authentic Truth for you is where Jupiter resides for you. Once you have connected to your Truth, then sharing your Story is or can be your offering to the Universe. (Have you heard the saying, “your life is God’s gift to you – what you do with it is your gift to God”?) When Jupiter in the sky touches Jupiter in your chart, it is always an opportunity to release all that is no longer true for you and free your Self from beliefs which no longer serve your purpose. This also helps you remember that Truth is fluid, it changes as you evolve and learn more about your Self and your world.
Jupiter is also considered a *benefactor* ~ when in contact with your chart, even when challenging, you can often receive blessings & rewards. Where you have to “earn it” with Saturn, with Jupiter, there’s more benevolence or good karma involved. When Jupiter travels through each House, it will certainly liven things up! The following are some of the different things activated by Jupiter’s presence …
Dreaming of the future & making future plans
Expanding your field of knowledge / going to school
Acting on your desire to improve on all levels
Actively seeking truth, wisdom & understanding
Taking risks which build your character
Being the most optimistic & enthusiastic
Connecting to a larger, more philosophical perspective
Activating your own Spiritual Quest
Getting your PhD in *YOU*
Accessing your own Truth & Purpose
Things to beware of as Jupiter travels thru each House …
Over-expansion / making things bigger than they are / exaggerating
So I also have a Kelly-theory that: everything is a response to the last thing and preparation for the next thing. So in astrology, every Sign (and its subsequent lessons), becomes ‘a response to the last Sign and preparation for the next Sign’. For the last year, Jupiter has been in Sag expanding the possibilities. Now, as it moves into Capricorn, the expansion in our lives comes from what we are able to stabilize & structure for long-term success. It is time to manifest the vision and create the container that is going to house the vision as well. This automatically leads to having to really stretch to consider the future. Lately, I’ve posed this question to folks: What would your Future Self really appreciate your Current Self doing right now? I say go 5-10 years ahead of now for yourself and feel into what your Future Self is really going to care about and need that would’ve been nice if you’d cultivated it NOW rather than when you get there. I’m easy, I just entered my 50’s so I’m asking what my 60-year old/Second Saturn Return Kelly would be deeply grateful for me taking care of now instead of later. All that to say, Jupiter is moving forward, expanding these areas of our lives (and charts) so try to co-create with the expansion so you are not overwhelmed by it.
