One of the many perks of Jupiter’s year-long passage through Scorpio is that it does herald a boost for bedroom-related matters! There’s an intimate openness about Jupiter in this sign that encourages exploration and helps us truly (re?)connect with the Joy of Sex. I don’t just mean the purely mechanical biological components of it, either – we’re talking the total, erm, package. Forgive the unintentional pun, but I mean to convey it encompasses so much more than the physiological part of the equation; we’re talking everything – sexual politics, views, beliefs, philosophies, paradigms, the honesty with which we approach sexual matters; all our naked Truths about sex & sexuality, basically. It also presents an opportunity for stripped-down candor where we can disrobe in every sense of the word, so promotes true intimacy *beyond* the mere corporeal. This, in turn, may create a positive feedback loop that can serve as a natural bedroom enhancement – when there’s deeper layers of trust, understanding, & tolerance, we’re certainly apt to be more generous in the sack.
It’s important to understand that Jupiter in Scorpio correlates to psychological growth as well, and if there’s been something buried in our psyche that prevents a happy and fulfilling sex life, the therapeutic process can be an enormous benefit to us during this time. Initially this may present as the trauma in question being magnified for us in some way – for example, in the wake of the recent huge Jupiter-in-Scorpio news about high-profile sexual predators like Weinstein & Toback et al, a massive glut of unpleasant stuff has indeed been blown up in the collective psyche regarding such matters. As triggering and disturbing as it may be for these kinds of horrible truths to come to light, Jupiter always offers the opportunity for improvement. So if we’ve been hiding a Truth that has deeply and perhaps perniciously impacted our most private and intimate beliefs about sex and sexuality, there’s a chance for us to also transmute this through understanding into a lighter, less dense state. Through no fault of our own, sometimes the soul becomes infected with malicious operating scripts that taint our enjoyment and happiness – with Scorpio being the sex sign, this is especially so in the bedroom. However, this passage presents an opportune moment to open up regarding taboo subject matter such as this in order to offer us renewed hope and optimism. It’s important to remember that even out of evil circumstances, something powerfully good can emerge. So if something has psychologically contaminated the Joy of Sex for us, it behooves us to explore how we might enhance this area of our lives for the better.
