All Signs: Weinstein. Ratner. Spacey. Russian money influencing Brexit. Hmmm. Let’s look at Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter entered Scorpio on Oct. 10, 2017. (Jupiter has a 12-year cycle and spends about a year in each sign.) Jupiter magnifies whatever it touches! Factoid. In part because it rules the media, publishing and foreign countries. (It also rules universities and churches.) Meanwhile, Scorpio rules secrets, the unconscious, sex, death and money. Nicole Simpson (wife to OJ) and Ronald Goldman were murdered when Jupiter was in Scorpio in 1995, which led to huge media coverage! When Jupiter is in Scorpio, secrets are revealed and they’re often about sex, money, death and foreign countries. Jupiter will stay in Scorpio until Nov 9, 2018. The year ahead will see more dark secrets revealed. Oh yeah. (Personally, I can always keep a secret; it’s the ones I tell that can’t.)
