One of the perks of Jupiter in Scorpio as I’ve said before is how it has the capacity to improve intimacy, including our sex lives. While some might be tempted to get this twisted and think “more” automatically equals “better” or follow in the philandering footsteps of the mythological Jupiter himself, this is really about elevating our beliefs and perspectives regarding intimacy in every sense of the word rather than focusing purely on the physical facet of fornication. Yes this particular placement certainly can increase sexual appetites, but this is an area of life we might apply a more insightful and empowering narrative around if we truly want to reap the benefits Jupiter in Scorpio has to offer to the absolute fullest – especially while Jupiter continues to sextile Pluto off and on throughout the year (Jan, April, & Sept 2018).
It’s important to understand that low-vibration intimacy is something to be avoided like the plague under Jupiter in Scorpio – Jupiter’s influence is primarily one that magnifies things; this can be in a dysfunctional capacity just as easily as it can be an enriching one. Consequently, whatever vibe we’re approaching sex and intimacy with during Jupiter in Scorpio becomes amplified BIG TIME; wouldn’t we naturally want this to be something positive rather than negative, then? Ideally, intimacy should always be an uplifting experience that we find deeply enriching and that expands the root system of a relationship. It allows us to expose parts of ourselves that nobody else sees, and when it’s positively received and generously given back in kind this in turn increases trust and thereby strengthens the alliance.
This is a time to boost our overall consciousness about this area of life waaaaaay up rather than sleaze it up; particularly if it enhances our understanding, tolerance, and openness regarding anything that might relate to our biological sex, sexuality, or even sexual health. So it’s definitely a “no” to anything that doesn’t better us in this respect; especially in the bedroom – whether it’s a “Felon I’d Like to F***” kind of scenario, an insatiable sexual appetite masking a large and vacuous void hidden inside, mistaking major “intensity” and “complications” for true intimacy (See: 50 Shades of Grey), or hatef***ing the ex, the toxic side of this energy mustn’t be allowed to run free and wild. All Scorpio energy holds the potential to consecrate or destroy, so being very conscious *not* to reward negative and/or self-destructive behaviors (like any of the aforementioned) with a dopamine hit is crucial. This is why sex can be so powerful; best to make sure it’s being used as a force for Good rather than as a weapon of mass destruction.
