All Signs: In ancient astrology, Jupiter was called the “Great Benefic” because it was thought to produce nothing but good. Indeed, Jupiter does bring good fortune by increasing whatever we have. It also brings joy and is often called Jove (hence the term “jovial”). Jupiter stays in one sign for a year, which means it returns to each sign every 12 years. Right now, Jupiter has one last month of being in Scorpio before it moves into Sagittarius on Nov. 8. Let’s look at the last benefits we are reaping with Jupiter in Scorpio because they will not return again until 2029. (Incidentally, the symbolism of Jupiter is more than a mere fortune cookie, which might say something like, “Toreador pants don’t just make your feet look big.”)

Aries (March 21-April 19) 

You still need to get more sleep. (Go to bed.) This week your primary focus continues to be on partnerships and close friendships, while dealings with groups and casual acquaintances are robust and energetic! However, Jupiter’s last month in Scorpio, for your sign, means you still have opportunities to benefit from the wealth and resources of others, especially partners. Your wealth might increase indirectly because your partner earns more. Likewise, you can benefit through financial institutions that will give you a loan or mortgage. Some of you will even receive an inheritance. It’s an excellent time to enter into a relationship with others or to pool your resources with someone.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)


You’re industrious and want results for your efforts. You’re thinking about how to best manage your life and prioritize responsibilities. This year your ambition has been strong! Use this motivated energy because in a few weeks, it will change focus. Meanwhile, you have the benefit of Jupiter opposing your sign and this benefit remains for one more month. It favours all one-to-one encounters with others. It means that people will help you and benefit you in many ways. Gifts, goodies, favours! Professional partnerships will flourish. You will also benefit through foreign places and people from other cultures because people are good to you now! Yippee!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This continues to be a playful, flirtatious time and you want to have fun! (The perfect time for a vacation or a mini getaway.) Romance, sports events, everything related to the arts plus fun activities with kids are great choices. Mars amps your desire to travel and learn something new by being self-taught or taking a course. Jupiter has brought you opportunities to improve your health this year along with chances to improve your job or get a better job. This benefit with your health and your job continues for another month. Wundebar! An offshoot of this, is that you might also enjoy pets or get a new pet. (A good dog saves you the bother of picking up food in the kitchen.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your focus on home and family continues, especially increased involvement with a parent or an authority figure. Disputes about sex or shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and insurance issues are on your plate. In the next month, your interest is still about love affairs, romance, vacations, playful activities with children and exploring opportunities in the arts. This does not mean that these fun things will shuffle off to Buffalo, but your focus will soon shift. Recently (and in the month ahead) you have the courage to be yourself and express yourself to others without fear or apology. What freedom! Along with this, your sex drive has been amped. Lots of fodder for your diary if you have time to write!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your busy time continues. It’s frantic with short trips, appointments, conversations and increased reading and writing but there is good news! Mars has been opposite your sign for most of this year which is most unusual. Usually, it is opposite your sign once every two years for only six weeks. But this year, it’s been sitting there for months! This makes you irritated with partners and close friends, which is not good. You’ll be happy and relieved to hear that by mid-November, this opposition is gone. At last! For the next month, Jupiter continues to bless home, family and real-estate. In particular, family members will be generous, warm and upbeat with each other. Heartwarming and reassuring!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You still have money on your mind. This could include moneymaking ideas plus firm intentions about how to take care of what you own. You’re giving a lot of thought to your basic values in life, which might be prompted by events around you that provoke you to think of what really matters. Always a good thing. You continue to be pumped to work hard in your job as well as delegating to others. Make the most of this because this will fade in about a month. The last month of Jupiter in Scorpio continues to boost your optimism and appreciation for your daily world. Appreciation is wonderful because it leads to contentment, which is the secret to happiness. (That and butter pecan ice cream.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This continues to be powerful because the Sun is in your sign for one more week. (When the Sun is in your sign, which happens only once a year, you’re pumped with energy and you attract people and favourable situations to you. It’s a good thing.) Mars continues to make you competitive in sports and romantically active and playful; while Jupiter reigns in its last month in Scorpio, giving you chances to boost your income and increase your wealth. Yay! You can also actualize in your life whatever you most value. (Sounds like magic, but it’s true.) It’s important to understand how to use your resources and assets to make your life more pleasant and fulfilling.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You’re keeping a low profile until your birthday arrives, which means you prefer to work alone or work behind the scenes. Once the Sun enters your sign, you’ll be out there flying your colors! The crazy agitation and increased activity that’s been taking place for months at home is starting to subside. What a relief! Once again, your home can be your refuge. Meanwhile, lucky Jupiter will be in your sign for one more month attracting people and resources to you. Jupiter boosts your confidence and increases your self poise. When it leaves your sign you will greet your world finesse and style. (“He was strong and compassionate and really knew how to accessorize.”)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Enjoy your popularity because everyone wants to see your face. Get involved with clubs and organizations. This year you have been forthright and bold when talking to others because Mars has been in your House of Communications forever. Ironically, next month both Mars and Jupiter change signs bringing a drastic difference to your life. (You will feel this.) Nevertheless, for the next month, your focus on secret matters, hidden love affairs and spiritual quests will be alive in your life and your imagination. This year you have identified with your beliefs but in a month, this will relax somewhat. Easier for you – easier for others.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The Sun is still high in your chart casting you in a flattering spotlight, which is why you impress bosses, parents and VIPs. You have one more week to advance your agenda and dazzle everyone! Mars will be in your Money House for one more month boosting your ambition to earn money and yet, encouraging you to spend more. Yup, the cash is flowing! The last month of Jupiter in Scorpio continues to increase your popularity with others and your involvement with clubs, groups and organizations. While Jupiter stays in this position, your interaction with others will benefit you. No question. Make the most of this before it leaves.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Travel, faraway places and fascinating subjects intrigue you because you want to expand your world and feel more alive! (“I gotta rose between my teeth!”) Furthermore, you will reach out for what you want because for most of this year, fiery Mars has boosted your energy and physical vitality. Mars made it possible for you to work at busy pace and accomplish a lot. However, in one month, Mars will change signs (finally) as will Jupiter. Jupiter has been sitting at the top of your chart for a year now giving you a chance to boost your reputation in the eyes of your peers. You still have one more month of this blessing so make the most of it. “Look Ma, no net!”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You have been focused and resourceful working with the resources of others and using them to benefit you and everyeone. This year has promoted secret love affairs for many – lots of behind-the-scenes activities and secret stuff. While Jupiter has been in Scorpio this year, you have been blessed because it is in your fellow Water Sign. It brought wonderful opportunities to travel and learn new things or go back to school because this placement of Jupiter would make it possible for you to expand your world and learn more. The point of learning more and expanding your world was to prepare you for next year, which is super promising! In the meantime, continue to hone your skills and get performance ready. Oh yeah!
