Jupiter In Scorpio: The Joy Of Sex

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 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.

Jupiter In Scorpio: Out Of “Evil”, Something Powerfully Good Emerges

The next few weeks may have some bittersweet blessings in store as Jupiter in Scorpio is joined by the Sun on October 26, 2017 and then Venus on November 13, 2017. The first 10 degrees of Scorpio are going to see some action, affecting not only those with planets or points in this area of the zodiac but also anyone who has placements within this degree range of any of the other Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Aquarius), Water signs (Cancer & Pisces), or Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn). There’s something for just about everyone it seems, and although the circumstances arising near these times may seem ill-fated it will be important to bear in mind the larger anchoring influence of Jupiter in Scorpio underpinning these conjunctions means that even out of something “evil”, something powerfully good can emerge.

In just a few days’ time the Scorpio Sun will join with Jupiter right in between the 3 and 4 degree mark of this sign, signifying an opportunity for some deep and possibly psychologically-oriented growth to occur. While this energy may indicate it happening as the result of some kind of loss (because Jupiter in Scorpio will tend to magnify losses and endings), this alignment does have a “let go to gain” kind of feel so it will be important *not* to be consumed by the perspective of what is gone/passing from our lives now. Believe instead that it all works out for the best in the end – sometimes, even a craptastic ending can be better than stagnation. If something in our lives is/has become toxic, it’s better that it be allowed to pass from our lives so we can devote more of our energy to moving onward & upward. As a general FYI, legal matters, collegiate issues, religious/moral/political concerns, as well as in-law relationships (if applicable) tend to take on increased emphasis during this time and may indeed be where this “letting go” is called for. Mind you there certainly *can* be more outright positive manifestations of this energy, as any Sun/Jupiter conjunction brings the phrase “I’d rather be lucky than good” to mind and sometimes we don’t have to choose because we’re blessed to be both. However, the turbulent nature of Scorpio – though incredibly insightful – tends to bring a darker hue to this conjunction’s blessings, cloaking them and perhaps causing them to seem invisible to those who don’t know where to look (Hint: Inward is always a good direction when Scorpio is involved).

The conjunction of Venus with Jupiter in Scorpio happens just a few weeks later at 7 degrees of this sign. Even with Venus debilitated in the sign of her Detriment it’s hard to deny the positive facets of both benefics being teamed up like this, though the vibe may indeed carry a rather “bittersweet” flavor overall. Venus in Scorpio is the magnetic Feminine, attracting complex but enriching, growth-oriented scenarios when it comes to relationships or finances. From a fiscal point of view Venus/Jupiter pairings can be lucrative, though again because we are dealing with Scorpio energy there can be a loss/ending theme prompting this. Some examples of this can run the gamut from a large inheritance to a sizable divorce settlement or anything else that would involve taking a loss for greater material gain. Another facet of Venus/Jupiter pairings is its gluttonous vice for extravagance, and the underlying Scorpio vibe can bring a covetous feel to the equation; like someone maxing out their credit cards or going into debt with a big (balloon??) loan for some kind of massive expenditure. An actual investment that has calculated ROI is one thing, but we must remember that with these planets all ruled by Pluto in Capricorn, taking on any kind of “dumb debt” is a definite “no”!

As far as the love end of this equation goes, things can get complicated when Venus is in Scorpio and even moreso with Jupiter boosting this. On one hand this pairing can magnify dysfunctional relationship dynamics with the hope of improving the alliance as we increase our level of insight, especially around areas involving sharing, fairness, money, possessiveness, and/or power/control issues. This conjunction may also facilitate an opportunity for us to put our chips “all in” regarding a partnership and help us uncover the true meaning of “intimacy” in a union. It won’t be easy but the right synergistic alchemy between partners can facilitate massive growth, empowerment, and transformation for both parties, though again this may come at some kind of expense. Perhaps it will entail letting go of a (toxic?) union to facilitate greater, more fertile space for a better one to enter in the future. At its best this conjunction can attract a partner/partnership that intimidates us in a *good* way; where we are more *together* than just the sum of our parts and share the philosophy that leveling up means we must “root down to rise up” from deep within. But first it may well entail getting intimately acquainted with our more dysfunctional beliefs about love…

Your Jupiter In Scorpio Playlist

Queue up the NIN; this 13-month long passage of Jupiter through Scorpio totally has a “Heresy” feel to it in my mind!

“He sewed his eyes shut
Because he is afraid to see.
He tries to tell me
What I put inside of me.
He’s got the answers
To ease my curiosity.
He dreamed a god up
And called it Christianity.

God is dead
And no one cares.
If there is a hell
I’ll see you there.”      -Heresy, by Nine Inch Nails (NIN)

 
Why do I say this?  See the following excerpt from my October 2017 newsletter:

“…there is a polarizing dynamic regarding this placement that tends to express as zealot or heretic with little-to-no in between – it’s a placement of passionate intensity as it pertains to religious, political, and cultural views that can veer toward rather extreme philosophies or, conversely, deeply resentful of dogma/conservatism/fundamentalism. Jupiter in Scorpio represents the metaphorical (moral or philosophical) “hill” we are willing to “die” on, and one thing is for sure while we’re under its influence: We’re not apt to be lukewarm about what we believe at all…”

Now do you see why I deliberately chose the song above, LOL? Regardless of whether or not Nine Inch Nails is your preferred cup of tea, one facet of Jupiter in Scorpio is indeed sacrilegious; it’s where we hold the Sacred Cow up for slaughter. We may indeed be tempted to preach some taboo Truths during this transit, and certain sects will be threatened by the publication of these “secret gospels” – just ask sexual predator-at-large Harvey Weinstein.  It may be ugly, but that doesn’t mean it’s false – those shouting “Blasphemy!” do well to remember this.

Welcome, Jupiter In Scorpio!

Grab your popcorn & turn off all the lights; we’ve got a real Thriller of a 13 month-long astro-passage on our hands starting…now!

Jupiter amps things up; in Scorpio it magnifies the “Halloween” vibe and extends it for an entire year+. If you read my October newsletter, then you already know some of the key themes you might expect from this energy. If you didn’t….well, you’ll just have to find out; hopefully *before* it’s too late, mwahahaha! 👿 😉  I’m joking, BTW (in case it wasn’t obvious) – nothing terrible will befall you & this transit is actually more “Creepy Comedy” (à la The Addams Family) than straight-up Thriller, though it will certainly have its moments!
