Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, is associated with generosity, expansion, travel, higher education, religion, philosophy, and belief systems. Generally speaking, the area of your natal chart that transiting Jupiter is traveling through is more likely to see some benefits, gains, and good luck.
When is it happening, and what does it mean?
On 19 December 2020, Jupiter will move from being in the sign of Capricorn to Aquarius. Jupiter was not very comfortable in Capricorn, as it was in the sign of its fall. Jupiter also spent most of the year with Saturn, a planet associated with limitations, restrictions, and hard work. These qualities don’t meld as well with Jupiter’s qualities of expansion, enthusiasm, and generosity.
Jupiter’s move from Capricorn to Aquarius means that it is in a better position (not in the sign of its fall). However, for a large portion of the year, Saturn will be copresent with Jupiter in Aquarius.
Not long after Saturn and then Jupiter enter (ingress) into Aquarius, they meet up for a once in 20-year conjunction. These Jupiter Saturn conjunctions set the stage for the next 20 years.
Jupiter moves quickly through Aquarius initially and enters the sign of Pisces on 13 May 2021. Jupiter is only there for a brief spell before stationing retrograde and re-entering Aquarius again on 28 July 2021. It will finally move out of Aquarius and into Pisces (a sign that it rules in traditional astrology) on 28 December 2021.
As with all signs, Jupiter has its good and its not so good properties. Sometimes it comes down to how you look at the situation (Jupiter ruling philosophy). Sometimes, Jupiter can bring too much of a good thing or even inflate a bad situation because of its expanding nature.
Jupiter retrogrades about once a year for approximately 4 months. We tend to be re-evaluating things of a Jupiter nature during this time, such as our personal moral compass. Jupiter will be retrograde from 20 June (02° Pisces 11′) to 18 October 2021 (22° Aquarius 19′).
