Jupiter goes into Scorpio on Oct. 11th and stays there for about 13 months. It moves so quickly that by late March it will be in Sagittarius in the gandanta area  (Sagittarius 0-3 degrees)  March 30-April 22nd for a few months before retrograding back into Scorpio until Nov. 4, 2019.

In Vedic astrology transits are often counted from the Moon because they impact the mind and emotions the most, but I find that transits from the ascendant are better at predicting material existence and even transits from the Sun should not be ignored for their impact on career and the material world.

If you have natal malefic like Rahu, Mars, Ketu or Saturn in your natal Scorpio chart or if they are  aspecting Scorpio, then some of the positive impact of the transit will be spoiled at times when the impact is within 5 degrees of a natal planet.  Consequently our guide below shows the positive and negative sides of the transit.

Also planets in transit will impact Jupiter and its results.  When malefics like Rahu impact Jupiter strongly in early November or when Mars is in Taurus opposing Jupiter in Scorpio March 23-May 6th, the darker side of the transit will manifest.  But for the most part the transit is unafflicted much of the year but does have to deal with a lot of difficult emotional psychological churning except from  late March until mid-May and Sagittarius rising and Pisces will feel this most.

Transits of Jupiter will be more pronounced if you are in a Jupiter Dasha period or you are Pisces or Sagittarius rising or moon or sun.  The number of bindu points you have in Scorpio will negative or positively impact the transit so 4 or above will bring out the higher energy and 3 or less will create problems.

There is a group of challenging planets for each rising sign and Jupiter supports Cancer, Leo, Pisces, Aries, Scorpio, Sagittarius rising or moon signs but can create over-optimism too much generosity or bad judgment for Libra and Taurus rising and is not helpful to Capricorn and Aquarius or Gemini and Virgo also creating hidden blind spots about relationships, work, group activity and family.  Jupiter always feels good and is welcome over Saturn’s intensity but he may create problems and Scorpio rising will have to avoid over-eating and stay on top of exercise to avoid weight gain.  Still water signs like Cancer and Pisces  will be positively impacted most of the year by optimism and good cheer.

Please consult a professional astrologer for a reading but here is a general guide:

Aries Rising or Moon –8th house transit

This could be a year where an unexpected positive windfall could come your way through inheritance, lottery or insurance. It is a great year for doing research and there is support to get through difficult health problems.


Taurus Rising or Moon –7th house transit

This could be a favorable year for new business partnerships, the call for a marriage, or some good work travel that will benefit you. Rely on diplomacy to be successful.

When afflicted with Mars in late March or in your natal chart, there is a lot of waffling back and forth before big decisions are made in connection with partnership. Finish your business transactions and do not leave a lot of loose ends. Don’t delay in making trips and find a way to be decisive about mates so get good advice from a professional.

 Gemini Rising or Moon – 6th house transit.

This year could create a lot of wisdom about being of service and get your health together if you are disciplined. If there are legal messes in progress, they may finally go your way. Focus on getting your health together with good diets and exercise and routines.

If you have natal malefics in Scorpio or when Jupiter is afflicted by Rahu in November or by Mars in Aries and Taurus from Feb-early May, there could be some health issues. Scorpio  governs genitals, the anus, and if afflicted, problems with STD’s or hemorrhoids could occur.   If you are lucky, a great doctor may appear to finally help you with any health-related related issues. Be frugal with financial matters and watch your children’s health and make sure they are disciplined with diet.

 Cancer Rising or Moon –5th house transit

Jupiter is transiting your 5th house enhancing romance, children, creativity and spiritual initiations so go on that spiritual retreat and get on match.com if you are looking a romantic partner. Classically, Jupiter transiting the 5th house can also bring children so if you want to get pregnant, the gods may offer support this year. It’s a good time to grow investments.

When Scorpio is afflicted by malefics in transit in November and March/April or if there are  malefics in your natal Scorpio chart,  be careful with investments, and make sure you are not neglecting your children. Be discriminating while getting into a new romance to prevent a broken heart as over-optimism could lead to making bad decisions.

 Leo Rising or Moon –4th house transit

This is a good year to continue your education, buy a new home or remodel it, get a new car or mend relationships with your mother. Good time to heal family wounds.

If Scorpio  is afflicted by malefics in your natal chart or in transit in Nov or Feb-March, then be careful with home repairs, make sure you get a good contractor and do not delay doing something in home or car repair that is  needed. Be mindful of maintenance of your car. Work on your family relationships and be particularly kind to your mother.

 Virgo Rising or Moon 3rd house transit

This is a good year for writing, self-expression, and acting, speaking and taking up a new musical instrument. It’s a good time for marketing and enjoying new neighbors or spending time with your younger siblings.

Ideally, Jupiter in Scorpio  transiting the 3rd House would enable you to undertake beautiful new projects involving communication — a new blog, book, or album.

If Scorpio is afflicted in your natal chart, you might be lazy about starting new projects. Younger siblings might have problems and may require financial assistance but make sure you have a clear plan to get repaid. You may have to watch too much play and partying and not enough emphasis on spiritual knowledge. You may be drawn into too many sexual adventures that may rob your vitality.

Libra Rising or Moon  2nd  house transit.

This year is a time to focus on increasing money, wealth and assets. It may be a good time to buy gems and jewelry. It’s a good year for expanding and healing family and doing consulting work. Remember that Jupiter represents increases as well as excesses.

If afflicted than do not be careless with money or over-spending on luxuries or over-eating. Does something here need to be re-balanced?

Scorpio Rising or Moon  1st house transit

 This transit deals with expansion of the self. If you do not have any malefic planets like Mars/Rahu or Saturn in the 1st, this transit creates optimism, comfort, and confidence. Your energy will be on the upswing! Good opportunities in business partnership and relationships should come your way and your health should be stronger. You may be attracted to personal philosophies and new wisdom as well as being drawn to doing teaching, coaching or consulting.

If you have malefics in Scorpio  or aspecting  Scorpio in your natal chart,  then be careful of being falsely optimistic without checking out the facts. Do not neglect responsibilities and avoid being lazy or over-extravagant. You may have problems with weight gain if you eat too much so cut down on the sweets.

 Sagittarius Rising or Moon 12th house transit

 This is a 12th transit of Jupiter and if there are no afflictions to Libra by malefics, you may reexamine a quest for enlightenment or desire to go on a spiritual pilgrimage to India, Peru or a spiritual country. This is a good time to take a spiritual retreat, perform sea or service work, donate to charities and engage in work that is a surrendering-like sacrificial activity such as devotion to your children.

It’s a good year to spend at the ashram if you are drawn to such work. Jupiter may support you in overcoming secret enemies, seeing your blind spots or overcoming debts and enemies. It’s a good time for counseling and unwrapping deep layers of the psyche.

If Scorpio  is afflicted by natal malefics aspecting or in your 12th house, you may be worried about doing too much service work and getting exhausted. You may be subject to unexpected expenses, or fines. Deep subconscious patterns may be coming up to heal but if you are not able to deal with them, avoid your addictions or sexual obsessions.

 Capricorn Rising or Moon 11th house transit

 This is a good year for Jupiter if it is not afflicted, as support from friends and groups will prosper. Cash flow should be better and it’s a good year for fulfilling your desires and developing consciousness. This is a good time for networking as the support will be there. Jupiter owns Sagittarius, so an 11th house transit of the ascendant lord is particularly potent.

If Scorpio is afflicted by malefics in your natal chart or in transit, this is not a good time to lend money to elder siblings or friends unless it is a gift and you are not in a hurry to get it back. Malefic aspects to the 5th could lead to bad investments in get-rich-quick schemes so do your due-diligence and check things out carefully. Avoid overindulging and overspending.

 Aquarius Rising or Moon  10th house transit. 

 This is a 10th house transit of Jupiter and if unafflicted it will increase status in your life and be an opportunity to network with successful people and expand your position at work. You may find an increased appreciation for your work and it will be a good time to take up teaching, coaching and consulting. Take time to evaluate your work/life, home/work balance to make sure it does not get out of control.

If Scorpio  is afflicted in your natal chart by Saturn or Ketu or Rahu, your reputation may take a downward slide if you are not on top of your responsibilities. Do not get lazy or overly cautious — jump at opportunities or they might pass you buy! Stay busy to avoid boredom.

Pisces Rising or Moon  9th house transit.

 This transit brings knowledge, fortune, spiritual knowledge and love of travel. It’s a good time to visit your father or Guru, or to teach and work on that book you want to publish. You are victorious in legal matters. It may be time to join a new spiritual group, a meditation circle or group at church. Take time to make new spiritual connections that enrich your life.

If Scorpio  is afflicted in your natal chart by Saturn, Rahu or Ketu, watch your finances and avoid getting too lazy about spiritual practice. Pay more attention to your children and don’t let opportunities to spend time in spiritual knowledge pass you by!  Watch your children and keep them healthy to prevent illness. Stop being so hard on yourself and on your progress in life. Mental afflictions could be increased. If you get caught up in people pleasing and not expressing your truth, you might end up in limbo in the Never-never land of “everything is FINE.”

Special thanks to the late Bill Levacy for his guidance on looking at the positive and negative sides of transits and to all my great Jyotish teachers.
