JUPITER the planet of expansion and optimism enters LIBRA, an AIR element sign of Karmic JUSTICE, relationships and balance for the first time in 12 years. The largest planet will remain in the sign of peace and love for 13 months until October 10, 2017.
JUPITER activates and crosses one of the main CARDINAL points of Zero degrees of LIBRA. Jupiter will conjunct the SUPER GALACTIC CENTER shortly afterwards. This massive massive black hole is a source and center of gravitational pull for a number of GALAXIES. JUPITER esoterically is the planet of the Higher master teachers. This will be an amazing opportunity to GALACTICALLY synchronize with the highest spiritual wisdom. symbolized by the WHEEL OF FORTUNE in the TAROT. The Wheel of KARMA itself.
JUPITER’s connection to travel, higher education, faith, justice, optimism, humor, risk-taking, honesty and trust will be seen though the LIBRAN lens of social networking and keeping things harmonious and NICE.
LIBRA is the 7th sign and begins the journey of differentiating a self, which the first six signs deal with, from an “other.” LIBRA is one of the few signs without an animal or human projected onto it. The ZODIAC is based on zoology.
The Egyptian Goddess Maat’s scales of karmic justice were most likely one of the original symbols of this constellation, although it contains stars of the constellation of Scorpio.
LIBRA is ruled by the planet VENUS. It is her masculine side/sign. Libra loves to think about relationships, talk about them, analyze them. Loves beauty and fashion and to network like crazy.
Jupiter was last in Libra in: 2004-05, 1992-93, 1980-81, 1969-70, 1957-58, 1945-46, 1933-34, 1921-22, 1909-10.
It’s all about the balance between self and others. JUPITER expands LIBRA’s positive and negative qualities.
The LIBRA positive side:
True equality between men and women, all races and peoples. The ability to love and be loved, fairness, true impartial justice, maintaining a balance of opposities, a psychological and real ability. Beauty as a mainstay in culture, fare treatment, peace makers, valuing the arts and artists, non-hierarchical, balancing karma with dharma.
The LIBRA shadow or dark side
Injustice, selfishness, war mongers, psychopaths, superficiality, inability to make decisions, imbalance, blindness, superiority, inability to relate to others, hatred, tipping the balance in favor of those with the most power or money. Opinionated, doesn’t listen to others needs or wants.
Let’s look back at events that happened while Jupiter transited the sign of holding the balance to find peace, justice, beauty, love and karma.
