On Dec. 19th, 2020 at 8:07am EST, Jupiter moves from practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn into freedom-loving, forward-thinking and objective Aquarius, where it will journey until May 13th, 2021. It will then revisit Aquarius between July 28th and Dec. 28th, 2021.

Jupiter represents our desire to seek insight through knowledge; some of this planet’s keywords are gratitude, hope, honor, morality, and the law — it is also the planet of possibility, optimism, and growth (including mental and spiritual growth), and is associated with a sense of humor, goodwill, and mercy.

The lower expressions of Jupiter include “Oh, the heck with it”, “I deserve this and more”, “the rules do not apply to me” — generally speaking, too much of a good thing, blind optimism, excess, stretching the truth, overindulgence, and so forth.

In the natal chart, the position of Jupiter reveals how we express generosity and tolerance, it also shows how we go about trusting others and improving our lives. Where do you look for wisdom and understanding? Where do you need movement and spaciousness? Where do you feel optimistic and have faith that things will turn out ok?

Jupiter represents the principle of expansion (it operates like a magnifying glass); it’s been in Capricorn over the last year (2020), where it created more opportunity for (and through) government. It sought an expansion of sustainable, long-term goals, and a greater understanding of our potential for overcoming adversity in the real world — for example, it helped us develop faith in our physical and cultural structures (or highlighted a lack of faith in those things). It also showed us more clearly where our limitations lie as a collective.

Capricorn values both expertise and healthy boundaries, so we’ve been getting to see what we believe to be true about government, authority figures, and collective rules and regulations in 2020 (and what stories we’ve been telling ourselves) — we also gained new perspectives on our collective experience and what we want to leave behind for other generations.

Jupiter in Aquarius brings the magnifying lens to bear on group consciousness, group visions, and networks of like-minded people; the opportunity now is to bring the enthusiastic energies of Jupiter to our communities, creating equality and open-minded exchanges with others.

Jupiter in Aquarius also promotes a greater understanding of our potential for everyone to express their individuality, celebrating each other’s differences. It helps us to have faith in our ability to turn challenges into change when we come together as one mind, one heart, one consciousness.

While Jupiter is in Aquarius (until Dec. 2021), we definitely attract the most good fortune when we are tolerant and fair, inventive, impartial, and cooperative. We value people and personal freedom. Unique perspectives, skills, and talents will serve us most. We are more open to new methods and want to see progress in the world. Possibilities for great tolerance and major humanitarianism are very strong; in particular, we are invited to offer freedom of choice to others.

We are also more able to think outside the box, are more mentally adventurous, ready, willing, and able to learn. We are into “mind expansion”, and are less attached to our values because we are generally more impartial and open-minded now — in fact, an original mind is what we seek. Intellectual stimulation is likewise welcome now, and the pursuit of technological inventions to make the future better and easier for everyone a worthy goal.

Jupiter in Aquarius also helps to create…

As Jupiter squares Uranus in Taurus during the course of its alignment with Saturn in Aquarius, we may become quite eager to make some essential changes in our lives, both collectively and individually.

We will talk in more detail about those Squares in our webinar: “2021: A Look Ahead”  Click here to join us live on Jan. 8th; or click here after Jan. 8th to purchase an mp4-video recording of this webinar.

Where does Jupiter-in-Aquarius fall in your own birth chart? What aspects does it make during the year-long transit? How does a wise response to one house support a more fruitful response to the next? What outward opportunities arise as Jupiter interacts with any of your personal planets? Where will you experience a major expansion until Dec. 2021? Where are you ready to create a network or alliance with others?

If you’d like more insight into those questions, we covered Jupiter’s and Saturn’s alignment in Aquarius in more detail in our last Forecasting Forum — so if you want to know how this powerful planetary alignment is impacting you personally, feel free to purchase the video-presentation of the last webinar — we applied the Jupiter’s and Saturn’s movement to our own birth charts! Click here to purchase our most recent Forum.
