Transiting Jupiter in Natal Houses

In Roman mythology, Jupiter is the supreme god of all gods. In astrology, Jupiter represents expansiveness, wealth, overall well-being, good luck, happiness, opportunities, travel, faith, religion, cultural experiences and personal growth. Along with Saturn, Jupiter is a transpersonal or generational planet. Their orbit around the Sun is slower but they are close enough to see with the naked eye. Jupiter's retrograde period occurs every nine months and lasts approximately four months.

How is transiting Jupiter influencing your birth chart? Look to the natal house/s ruled by Sagittarius (the zodiac sign ruled by Jupiter) as well as the zodiac sign Jupiter is currently transiting to find out how transiting Jupiter may influence your chart. Match the signs with the house cusps on your birth chart. Use the list of zodiac signs below to identify the Sagittarius zodiac sign, and sign Jupiter is currently transiting on your birth chart.

If you don't have your birth chart, you may use your Sun sign and/or your Rising/Ascendant sign, if you know it. For example, if you are a Pisces-Sun or Pisces-Rising and Jupiter is in Taurus. Begin with Pisces occupying the first house then move down the zodiac until you reach Gemini (Pisces-1st house; Aries-2nd House; Taurus-3rd House); Jupiter in Taurus falls in Pisces-Sun/Pisces-Rising's third house. Scroll down to the Third House to find out the themes of that house and how/where in your life this transit might influence.* Follow the same steps to match the house ruled by the current zodiac sign Jupiter is transiting.

Alternatively, you may cast your own birth chart for use as reference -- birth date, time, and place required. Schedule a session or request a quote for a paid personalized reading.

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.

The First House represents the self, self-image, our being, potential, and path to our life's purpose. Jupiter's transit here bring opportunities, happiness, a little luck and favor. You're more confident, a bit bolder and willing to take more risks. So, if you're already naturally a risk-taker, perhaps you might want to keep that in mind and step back to look before you leap sometimes. Become aware of what the universe is offering. Watch your diet, however, don't let the expansion be of your physical body. Jupiter has been in your 12th house for a year where his influence was subtler. Whatever indelible marks or dreams inspired by Jupiter in the 12th, you have the chance to practice or make happen.

The Second House represents our material possessions, income, value system, and self-worth. Jupiter has been in your 1st house the past year. You became more optimistic, confident and assertive. In the second house, Jupiter offers possibilities to increase income and/or material value. Watch out, however, that you aren't spending as quickly as you are earning. There may be bounty now, but learn to think ahead for a rainy day.

The Third House represents communication, commerce, writing, speaking, thinking, planning, and ideas, as well as siblings (biological or otherwise). Confidence booster within the realm of communication -- verbal or written. Relationships with siblings may also improve during Jupiter's transit here.

The Fourth House represents the family, the home, and our private life. On an emotional/personal level, it represents coming to terms with the past or unresolved family issues. Jupiter's transit here might benefit the buying/selling of homes or re-decorating/beautifying the home. It's also a good time to finally release deeply-rooted hurts and create an open space to be filled by new, happy memories.

The Fifth House represents self-expression, creative projects, love and romance, fun, playfulness, and children. Those desiring to conceive might find themselves successful during Jupiter's transit here. Creative juices freely flowing. If single and hoping to no longer be, keep your eyes open for your potential love. As this is the fun house, be mindful of overdoing things.

The Sixth House represents health, busy work, service, comfort in routines, and finding order in the details. Those dedicated to making a lifestyle change and begin practicing healthier habits will be successful in that endeavor. Be on the lookout for job opportunities, if you are seeking employment. Grander gestures of sincere kindness and charity toward others.

The Seventh House represents partnerships, marriages, and known enemies. Jupiter's transit here brings joy and blessings to committed relationships, marriages, wedding planning and partnered business ventures. Even if planning your wedding during a Jupiter transit in your 7th, it is still advisable to choose a date when Venus is not retrograde.

The Eighth House is multi-faceted and multi-layered. In the physical realm, the 8th house represents sex and shared resources/finances. In the psychological plane, it represents power struggles within our own psychological makeup. On a spiritual level, it represents "death and rebirth", transformation, regeneration. Financial investments may increase in value. Sexual life may become more active. Empowerment through winning over psychological battles. Finally finding the truth/belief system/religion/faith that may have been sought for years.

The Ninth House represents personal growth, higher education, experience, travel, cultural influences, publishing, the justice system. Jupiter's transit here may broaden your horizons through travel, taking courses and experiencing other cultures. Meeting a foreigner, who becomes a great influence on you or someone you influence. If you've been wanting to write and be published, this is a great time to make that happen.

The Tenth House represents professional pursuits, long-term goals, and public reputation. Ideal period to focus on career and aspirations. Advancing within your current company. Getting promoted. Finding something more suitable to your liking. You will generally have favor and good reputation during a Jupiter transit here.

The Eleventh House represents friendships and associations; our personal view of world, humanity, our place in it and our collaborative responsibility to it. A Jupiter transit here may broaden your interests to political or societal issues and how to improve upon them. Becoming more civic minded. It's also a very social period. Good for meeting people, networking.

The Twelfth House represents the subconscious, solitude, spiritual consciousness, secrets (ours and those kept from us), hidden enemies, and institutions like hospitals and prisons. Jupiter's transit here broadens your spirituality. Allows you to tap into hidden but natural talents. Unlock your "psychic" self. Pay attention to your dreams during this period; they may hold the key/answers to questions during your waking life.
