Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
Jupiter enters your Solar House of finance and transformation, and given your tendency toward adventure and Jupiter’s tendency to be excessive, this phase could deliver several important lessons. While it’s all too easy to say Jupiter stimulates personal growth through financial issues, that reality is probable. Be open to refining your relationship to money and the benefits of this Jupiter cycle will have lasting positive results.
Taurus April 20-May 20
Jupiter is in your Solar House of partnerships, illuminating relationship habits and patterns, as well as what it is you most desire in your personal interactions—and the good news is that Jupiter always provides fun as part of its process. This phase includes relationships of every denomination, from significant others to insignificant others (if there are any) and every other conceivable partnership you can imagine, including and most importantly your relationship with yourself.
Gemini May 21-June 21
Jupiter’s journey through your Solar House of service is certain to stimulate an expansive plan of self-care. This is the time to get all those check-ups, tests, and every other sort of check-in related to your physical body, and while you’re at it, you might also consider therapy as a way of coping with increased responsibility for others. I’m not suggesting anything is wrong. I’m simply advising you to take care of yourself because you will be taking care of others.
Cancer June 22-July 22
Jupiter moves into your Solar House of self-expression, moving you into a flood of creative ideas and projects. Remember, creativity isn’t limited to an art or a craft, so you don’t have to dance, draw, write, or make music. Creativity is a way of looking at life that has the power to make each day unfold with inspiration. I know that sounds completely ideal—and it is. Embrace every day, no matter how stuck you feel, as an opportunity for personal transformation.
Leo July 23-August 22
Jupiter enters your Solar House of the home, which means you’re expanding where you live—both your external center and your internal one. Of course, not every Leo is going to move, but lots of Leos might experience the need for some expansion at home, even if it is simply a new pillow for the couch. Of course, a new addition is also possible, but because I’m talkin’ Jupiter, you’ll need to be mindful of the budget. Be aware…these additions could also be internal—a new meditation or a new commitment to awareness.
Virgo August 23-September 22
Jupiter’s journey through your Solar House of communication is certain to have you talking—a lot—about a wide variety of subjects with an even wider variety of people, from family members to significant others to strangers. Embrace this loquacious phase as an opportunity to share ideas—even ideas you don't agree with. It’s not often we get to expand our day-to-day reality with such a benign force supporting our interactions.
Libra September 23-October 22
Jupiter moves into your Solar House of personal resources, stimulating a new awareness about handling your finances as well as a similarly new awareness of being a spirit in the material world—which may be the greatest resource of all. Yes, this is a difficult idea to embrace, especially if you’re facing a financial crisis of some kind. But difficult as it may be, it is nonetheless true, and if you can access the depths of this idea, your relationship to all your resources will shift.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
Yay! It’s Jupiter, the Planet of great good fortune, in your Sign, facilitating a positive identity crisis as it enters your Solar House of personality. And while some of these Jupiterian shifts might be excessive, they might also be beneficial, especially if you’re willing to leave behind traits that no longer suit you. I’m not suggesting this is an extreme makeover. I’m simply advising you to be prepared for a shift in perspective as both you and the world see you in a new, more expansive light.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
Jupiter moves into your Solar House of the unconscious, stimulating the many parts of the brain we don’t actually use and aren’t very conscious of. As a consequence of Jupiter’s presence, you’re likely to experience increased dream activity, sleeping and waking. Be prepared for all sorts of inspired activities, including a desire to increase or change your meditation practice. Under this influence, you might also perfect the power of positive thinking.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
Jupiter’s journey through your Solar House of community invites you to expand your participation in community projects, whether those projects are local or global. For some, this may translate into traveling with Habitat for Humanity, or it could just as easily become a commitment to becoming a mentor through Big Brothers/Big Sisters or another group dedicated to community service. Whatever your chose, welcome the opportunity to share your gifts and talents.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
Jupiter moves into your Solar House of career, stimulating your ambitions as it simultaneously amplifies your qualifications. As Jupiter’s tendency to exaggerate combines with your inclination toward idealism, it would be wise to use this phase to explore what it is you would most like to accomplish. Set short-term as well as long-term goals. And don’t dismiss a plan because it isn’t realistic—this is Jupiter, after all, and that means you have to think big!
Pisces February 19-March 20
Jupiter, which is the co-Ruler of your Sign, is very happy to journey through your Solar House of global expansion—also called the Solar House of belief systems—where we search for truth through the exploration and experience of a wide variety of cultural traditions. Be prepared for all sorts of excursions, physical and spiritual, and anticipate that at some point during this phase you may actually be traveling the world.
