When considering transits in Vedic Astrology, those of the slow-moving planets are generally the most important. The transits of Saturn, Jupiter and the Nodal Axis (Rahu & Ketu) in particular indicate more significant, long-term trends. So when any of these planets are about to move into a new constellation, it is significant news astrologically.
At present this is especially the case with Jupiter, who has been in Capricorn – his sign of debilitation – for most of the past year.
Jupiter went into Capricorn March 29th, 2020, then “took a break” from his journey through this constellation when he went back to Sagittarius from June 29 until November 20 of 2020 due to his retrograde cycle. So for about the last 4 months, Jupiter has been back in Capricorn where he is devoid of strength. Note the correlation between Jupiter’s time in Capricorn with the outbreak of the COVID pandemic. This transit has been one of the astrological factors indicating a challenging year world-wide.
So the wonderful news is that on April 5th, 2021 – less than two weeks from now – Jupiter will leave Capricorn and begin his journey through Aquarius. Jupiter’s retrograde cycle will bring him back to Capricorn again later this year, but only briefly from September 14th until November 20th 2021.
So, what does all this mean for us down here on Earth? Jupiter is much stronger in Aquarius than in Capricorn, and that is a very good thing – for Jupiter represents all that is positive and beneficent. Jupiter is called the great benefic in astrology. So in brief it looks like we are soon to come to the light at the end of the tunnel in some way. This can show up not only collectively, but also on the individual level in more specific ways according to what transiting Jupiter may activate within the context of an individual birth chart.
For this reason, from now until the end of April mini-readings are available to look at this transit of Jupiter, and what it means for you. My hope is that understanding what is being activated in your chart can help you to make the most of this time in your life.
