Jupiter has been retrograde until today, September 14th. Whenever Astrologers say a planet is retrograde, it means that it’s a time to examine what is symbolized by that planet’s energy in the area (or as astrologers say, house) that that particular planet is located in either your birth chart or the 0 Aries wheel. A retrograde planet is saying slow down in this area of your life, take a look in the mirror and see those things you may want to change. This article will examine the areas likely to be affected by Jupiter going direct based on either your sun sign or your ascendant sign (if you know it). If you don’t know, you can calculate it over on my website http://ken-saunders.com or if you’d prefer to shoot me an email with your date of birth/time of birth/place of birth.
First, we’ll examine each sign and what Jupiter direct means, as well as the area of your life likely to experience an expansion of energy, a blossoming, or growth spurt.
With Jupiter now moving through your career house the remainder of this year, the spotlight will be on your job. You can expect a spotlight to shine of the work (good or bad) you’ve done in the past year. Promotions, change of job, and even venturing into an entirely new career are expected.
Jupiter is moving through the house that governs philosophy, travel, higher education, and learning. Your growth path the rest of this year revolves around finding where you fit in the grander scheme of things, answering big “God” type questions. You may find yourself getting bit by the travel bug in pursuit of answering long-standing questions or simply to get away, once its safe to travel, of course. Returning to school, even taking up a new language, are all possibilities for you the rest of this year.
Jupiter is traveling through your 8th house, which has rulership over other people’s money, including inheritances and investments. The eighth house is also the house of sex and death (transformation). You’re going to feel a tremendous desire for growth and expansion, partnering up with other people (and their resources) dealing with issues around loans, taxes are also indicated. One of the other attributes associated with this house is dealing with deeper, more profound emotions. Creating a truly deep sense of security for yourself will likely drive a lot of your self-growth for the remainder of this year. Dealing with COVID and understanding of loss it brought to your life are also highlighted.
Jupiter in the 8th house can sometimes indicate that you’ll receive an inheritance or windfall, but it’s wise not to expect it.
Jupiter will continue to travel through the house of relationships/marriage/close partnerships, bringing opportunities to strengthen, deepen, and enhance an already strong relationship. However, if during the Jupiter retrograde you found your existing relationship lacking, you will find ways to either correct what your learned, possibly through couples therapy, or the relationship will likely transform in the coming 6-8 months. Either way, Cancer, you are in for some ups and downs emotionally.
Jupiter brings a lot of growth and energy to whichever house he is traveling through. In your case, Leo, you’re going to find yourself with a lot more on your work plate. Work may feel completely draining, so you may also find yourself eating or drinking your emotions, so guard yourself against overindulgence. Now would be a great time to hire a personal trainer, start going to yoga classes, or begin practicing mindfulness meditation daily. You’ll find yourself in a much better position next year when Jupiter finally moves out of your sixth house.
Don’t laugh if I tell you your new favorite place is going to be Bed, Bath, and Beyond for the rest of the year. You already have a secret desire that you were, Martha Stewart. The rest of this year into the next will be drawing your focus towards making your home life cozy, beautiful, and functional. You may find yourself selling and buying a larger place. Jupiter is the planet of expansion. Jupiter makes BIG as I like to say.
There’s going to be a lot more local travel, communication, engaging more in making your local neighborhood what you want it to be. If you write, now through late Winter 2021 is a great time to ply your craft. You will also find yourself more engaged with siblings, cousins if you have them. It is a great time to expand your awareness of all things local.
Its said that if Jupiter is passing through the second house, you’ll get rich. What that really means is that whatever resources you need will come a little bit easier for you this year. Whatever you find yourself focusing on, you will find the resources needed to make it happen.
Jupiter, your sign’s ruler, is transiting your first house, which brings a natural desire for self-knowledge and growth. This is an ideal time to explore you are, as well as how you improve your life. Jupiter going through the first will increase your self-confidence as well as your ability to get things done. Go for the brass ring with this transit.

This is your opportunity to inspire others.
