Jupiter Re-enters Aries ~ January 22 to June 4, 2011

Last year, Jupiter experienced Arien energy from June to September 2010 but was interrupted from completion when he went retrograde and revisited Pisces. Now, he finishes what he started last year and transits Aries from January 22 to June 4.

Prior to Jupiter's initial entrance into Aries last year, he trailed Uranus closely for most of May 2010. This year, although Jupiter and Uranus remained within degrees of each other, Jupiter returns to Aries before Uranus does (on March 11). And though, they won't meet up again and blend energies as they did last year while in Aries, their presence in the sign of Aries encourage and support initiation, creation and new ventures.

As written in previous blog posts,

Jupiter represents good luck, joy, expansion, opportunities, higher education, and personal growth through our interests, experience and spirituality. He also governs publishing, travel, foreigners and exposure to other cultures. At best, Jupiter brings a wealth of knowledge, understanding, growth, opportunities, as well as financial gains. At worst, overindulgent, excessive, wasteful and unable to get past "dreaming" of the possibilities.

Aries is the trailblazer of the zodiac. Aries energy is bold, individualistic, independent, enterprising and can be impulsive, pushy, abrasive, and bossy. It's an impatient energy that needs to constantly be in a dynamic state -- gotta be moving, gotta be doing, gotta be making things happen. Aries represents the self, the ego, our volition, our potential.

Jupiter in Aries is the spark of optimism needed to push through despite mountains to climb. He blesses us with opportunities that will help support our endeavors. It is our job to be aware of doors or windows opening. With Uranus also in Aries for most of Jupiter's transit in Aries, opportunities may not come in the package we expect them to or hope for them to. They may not even come from the sources or people we think they might. We can all benefit from Jupiter by expanding our minds, our expectations, our perceptions to break past whatever metaphorical boundaries limit us from what's truly possible.

Next month, Jupiter will square (in conflict) with Pluto. This energy can be useful with regards to overcoming limitations. Be mindful, however, of overexertion or misusing power/force in the course of accomplishing goals.

Then in March, Jupiter will oppose (require balance with) Saturn. This energy triggers last year's Cardinal T-Square where Jupiter and Saturn were also opposite each other and played their part in the T-square. There is an opportunity to make things a reality now, if there were things left unfinished or not acted upon from the prior year.

Those with their natal Jupiter in Aries will have their Jupiter Return this year. A Jupiter Return occurs approximately every 12 years, when Jupiter returns to the same sign and degree he was in at the time of our birth. This event usually coincides with major life changes as a new 12-year cycle of personal growth and expansion begins. The year of Jupiter's return offers blessings, favor and opportunities for gaining experience, wisdom, as well as financial gains.

For me, as an early-born Cancer-Sun, Jupiter will perfect the square (challenging alignment) with my Sun and my Uranus that he came ever so close to making last year. This will happen a couple of days before his meeting with Pluto next month. Pluto continues to oppose my Sun while also squaring my Uranus most of this year. Anyway, Jupiter transits my solar 10th house of career/future goals (as a Cancer-Sun) and my natal 8th house of endings/debt (as a Virgo-rising). However, since my natal 8th house begins at 26 degrees of Aries, much of Jupiter's transit will occur in my natal 7th house of partnerships. As he continues his journey in Aries, Jupiter will conjunct (blend energies) with my Chiron (wounds/healing) and my Moon (heart); and, he'll also trine my Venus (relationships) ... ahhh, good times :)

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.
