Jupiter is one of the most benevolent planets in astrology and is often referred to as the lucky planet.
Jupiter has the ability to shine a light and expand whatever it touches. This is why Jupiter is often synonymous with success, luck and good fortune.
Jupiter energy also gives us the ability to view things in a more positive light and to see things from a more optimistic view point.
Jupiter spends a little over a year in each zodiac sign and has currently been in Virgo.
Virgo is a practical earth sign and has allowed us to use Jupiter’s expansive and optimistic energy in a practical and specific way.
It has also allowed us to pay attention to the smaller details in life and perhaps also focus on our health and well being.
Now however, on September 9th 2016, Jupiter will move into Libra for the first time in about 12 years. Jupiter will remain here until October 2017.
Libra is the sign of partnerships and relationships. Libra rules over working together and finding balance and harmony in all areas of life.
Jupiter’s move into Libra represents a time of harmony and success in relationships.
If you have been struggling in love, if you have been struggling to find balance in your relationships, Jupiter in Libra can help.
Jupiter is also going to help us to experience profound spiritual growth and development through our relationships.
Jupiter’s entrance into Libra also comes at an interesting time, as it happens at the same time the 999 gateway opens.
The 999 gateway opens on the 9th and closes on the 27th, bringing with it the energy of endings.
While the energy of the gateway is activated, we are going to feel called to let go of things that no longer serve us and perhaps wrap up a cycle that has been with us since 2008.
This is an extremely potent time in the Universe and will also help to bring a sense of completion and resolution to the energy of the year so far.
2016 itself is a year of endings, so the opening of the 999 gateway is only going to amplify this energy.
Having Jupiter move into Libra on the same day the 999 gateway opens symbolises a time to shed and release issues surrounding relationships, love and balancing the ego and spirit.
If relationships have been tricky or have needed more karmic balancing, Jupiter will be helping and aiding you to find harmony.
Jupiter moving into Libra is also a potent time for working and connecting with others. If you are looking to collaborate on a project or looking to network or expand your circle, Jupiter can definitely help.
Jupiter can also help if you have been struggling to get along with friends, colleagues or family members.
On a global level, Jupiter moving into Libra teaches us the value of thinking about the other and putting other people’s needs first.
True enlightenment cannot be achieved when the world is in turmoil. If we really want to advance in consciousness, we have to do so as a society.
The best way that we can do this is lead by example and Jupiter in Libra is going to be stressing this.
Jupiter in Libra is also an extremely creative placement and will be fortunate for helping to expand creative ideas, beauty and aesthetics.
How Jupiter’s move into Libra is going to effect you individually will depend where Libra falls in your natal chart, however the main theme that should touch us all is finding harmony in our relationships with others and ultimately, ourselves.
