After a year of its transit through the sign of Aries, Jupiter finally moves to Taurus, first earth sign of the zodiac, ruled by Venus, Goddess of Love, Beauty and Money, on June 4th, exactly at 13:56 GMT. Even though we cannot say that Jupiter in Aries was responsible for the public demonstrations around the world, against corrupt governments, it was no doubt an indispensable ingredient of it all. Jupiter correlates with young people and to the great ideals of humanity, Jupiter signifies the best in us. Obviously, in the sign of Aries, first Fire sign of the zodiac, ruled by Mars (the warrior, the soldier, God of War) it awoke the warrior in all of us and very especially in young people. Even in Spain, youngsters have manifested and are still manifesting against the mismanagement of fonds and corruption in the government. (Pluto in Capricorn)
Jupiter stays about a year in each sign, since it takes about 12 years to complete its journey around the sun, so it is an important ingredient in the trend of the year ahead. Taurus is a very different sign to Aries. For one thing, this earth sign is slow, very slow.
Aries is very impulsive and Taurus takes its time. This sign enjoys the pleasures of life too much, to move around too quickly. After a good meal, the most important things for Taurus is what the Spanish call “sobremesa”, the conversation, the coffee, the brandy, the whisky, etc. And of course, the explanation of how the meal was prepared!
So what will Jupiter in Taurus awake in all of us? First, we must think in terms of solidifying whatever we started during the Jupiter in Aries period, meaning, the past 12 months. Second, how can we do that? Can we make a living out of it? Do we have pleasure doing it? Is it creative enough? How can we make it more creative? All of these questions are relevant now. We can easily see this pattern being relevant for all these countries like Tunisia and Egypt and their newly formed democracies. Time to solidify, beautify whatever what destroyed in the Arian process while fighting for freedom. Collectively and individually this is one of the processes of Jupiter in Taurus.
Just on the doorsteps of the entry of Jupiter in Taurus, yesterday we had the case of the Spanish cucumbers being blamed for some bacteria contamination, which caused great loses for the Andalusian farmers, to then be told, the following day: “Oops! Sorry! It wasn’t the cucumbers!” (Ceres, Goddess of Agriculture in square to the Moon Nodes, for this eclipse)
With the financial crisis still a reality, Jupiter in Taurus, augurs us some kind of improvement, especially in its contact to Pluto in Capricorn, by trine (120º) which will happen around July, October, 2011 and March 2012.
The importance of beauty, pleasure and financial security in our lives is the main lesson of Jupiter in Taurus.
Curiously, people with Jupiter in Taurus in their birth-chart, don’t necessarily amass great fortunes, nor become obese, but they surely enjoy life more that others and creativity and pleasure of paramount in their lives.
Here is a list of some of them: Pablo Picasso, Jean-Paul Sartre, Henri Matisse, Gandhi, John Lennon, Keanu Reeves, Monica Bellucci, Martin Luther King Jr., Shakira, Che Guevara, Sandra Bullock, JF Kennedy, Orlando Bloom, Audrey Tautou, Colin Farrell, Patrick Swayze, Tony Blair, Robert Downey Jr., Sarah Jessica Parker (obviously! ;-D), Calista Flockhart.
Those of you with Jupiter in Taurus, who are now about to turn 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72 years old, are undergoing a Jupiter Return, which highlights the area of your chart where Jupiter finds itself, as the point where the need for expansion and improvement will manifest the strongest. Think back to what was happening in your life around 12 years ago.
Virgo and Capricorn will feel the buzz and the benefits almost immediately, and so will Pisces and Cancer (in spite of being greatly challenged lately). Wherever your planets in Taurus or Virgo or Capricorn are, you will feel the need to improve that area of your life and you will be more optimistic about it, therefore attracting better energies towards it.
One must be cautious with the negative side of Jupiter, which is “excess”. It is easier to put on weight, spend more money, buy a bigger house than you actually need, go over board. So, you’ve been warned!
Scorpio will also benefit of this transit, and Aquarius and Leo will probably have to work harder at controlling the negative side of it, which includes being too optimistic, especially from now until the Lunar eclipse of June 15th, which will be in contact to Neptune.
Jupiter in Taurus will make us see Beauty in Nature, like never before. The importance of becoming aware of the need to preserve this Beauty, will be stronger than ever.
Many astrologers believe that the Earth is the real ruler of Taurus and it certainly makes sense.
For those of you with planets in Taurus or especially the Ascendant, there may be some kind of reward coming your way, especially if you have been working hard at something.
Jupiter will stay in Taurus until June 11th, 2012.

  1. it was around 12 years ago when my daughter left for good. it was very difficult for the 2 of us, she being an aquarian (1/26/80) he’s a sag (12/18/48) both w/ virgo asc, plus she has mars in virgo, his in capricorn. i hope these new planetary changes can bring us (she & I) together again.


    • Patti, Can’t quite understand. You talk about your daughter and yourself, but then you say: “he’s a Sag”. Who is the Sag?


  2. divorce final in 1998. within 3months, my own mother passed. the follow years were hard. i had nobody bto turn to. i just wish my daughter & I could reconnect. Its been so long and I find myselk when out, looking at other women who remind me of her, wondering if thats her. I dont think I can feel whole until our relationship is on better terms.


  3. Do i still have time for major move ? last tiem you mentioned ‘this is your last chance’ but didnt mention time frame. I had no funds to move prior to now anyway.



  4. I was born on 11/26/52 and believe that I am going through my Jupiter return as well as my Saturn return. I have Jupiter in the 7th house of my natal chart and Saturn is in my 1st house. What can I expect from my Jupiter return. I was divorced over two years ago but it would be nice to have someone nice in my life. Pleas advise.
