Jupiter leaves Virgo for Libra on September 9th, 2016. The planet that brings more of everything, in the sign of the balance, suggests that (initially) relationships may become unbalanced. We can expect situations to swing between extremes. On the positive side, there will be a broader perspective on all things Libra: romance, social connections, and objective awareness. The hope (another Jupiter quality) is that the concept of fairness will increase, as well as the desire for harmony. Overall, I think this will be a positive transit for relationships. It won’t be deep or profound — Libra’s desire for peace, combined with Jupiter’s tendency to overlook the details, suggests more social gloss and an “everything’s just fine” attitude. But sometimes this is what you need to keep moving forward, or to buoy a shaky relationship.
Cardinal signs will feel this transit most strongly. If you have any planets in these signs, this should be an active transit for you, as Cardinal energy is about making something happen. Jupiter exits Libra on October 10th, 2017.
Jupiter will bring you opportunities. For romance? That’s a strong possibility. At the very least, your ever-present urge to be in a relationship will increase, and Jupiter’s sense of adventure will kick in. You could be ready to step outside your social comfort zone and check out a situation that’s almost inappropriate (for you). Don’t get me wrong — this is not a dangerous transit. But sometimes you can be a bit “correct” and this influence will enlarge your sense of what’s possible. Along with this, Jupiter will increase your natural charm, flirtatiousness and social talents. You’ll feel better about being you, which will magnify your tendency to reach out to others. That’s a powerful combination if you’re looking to meet someone special, or if you simply want to enjoy the rewards of a vibrant social life.
If you’re already in a relationship and things are going well, they should get better. You’ll feel magnanimous, rising above the petty squabbles. Your tendency to keep everything nice and pretty will go into overdrive. You may want to give more, because this transit can increase your generosity. Ideally, the more you give to your partner, the more you’ll get in return. But watch that you don’t give so much that you lose track of what you want. Jupiter’s rush of enthusiasm can make extreme gestures of love seem like a really good idea. And they may be. But any areas of imbalance in a partnership will also increase, and your awareness of what’s not fair will be heightened. Will you do something about it?
