Jupiter is retrograde every year for several months, during which this planet’s normally bountiful energies are not quite so abundant. During its retrograde period, therefore, we tend to focus on being grateful for what we already have, rather than hoping for more. With Jupiter now turning direct once more, however, opportunities to reap further abundance are returning.
In astrology, Jupiter is the planet of joviality, humor, expansion, generosity and wisdom, as well as luck and abundance. With Jupiter currently transiting Capricorn, that most strict and structured of zodiac signs, all of these things are expressed in a solid, constructive, responsible way. Indeed, once Jupiter turns direct in Capricorn, it’s through responsible behavior that we are most likely to reap abundance.
Don’t forget that we’re not only talking about abundance in financial terms here, although that is part of it. We can also receive abundance via good or improving health, an abundance of love and affection, abundant companionship and abundant recognition for our hard work. When Jupiter turns direct during its transit through Capricorn, we see that doing the right thing and the expected thing tends to work in our favor.
Having said that, Jupiter’s astrological energy is also focused on pushing the limits so that it can expand. Where this meets Capricorn’s rigid structures, there is scope for pushing back limits and gaining greater freedom, but only where to do so is in the greater good – this is very much an abundance for all vibe, not a selfish one.
In astrology, Jupiter is also a planet of growth, so when Jupiter turns direct, its position in our natal chart tells us through our horoscope where that growth can come from. Unlike, say, Saturn or Pluto, the growth which Jupiter brings is typically voluntary – we choose to grow via the choices we make. Nothing is forced upon us. However, this means that Jupiter’s growth opportunities are also easily missed. It’s at the point that Jupiter ends its retrograde period that we can feel its influence most keenly, so this is a very good time to make sure that we are looking for areas where we can grow, and that we stand ready to take those opportunities when we do discover them. While identifying these growth opportunities is not always easy or obvious, Jupiter’s position in your chart will suggest possible areas.
Horoscopes: What Does Jupiter Direct in Capricorn Mean for Each Sun Sign?
Each Sun sign will experience the energy of Jupiter turning direct slightly differently, and for each of us as individuals, a lot will depend on the strength of Jupiter in our own natal charts. In general, however, each zodiac sign can harness this energy to uncover opportunities and new possibilities.
Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) during Jupiter Direct in Capricorn
Seek growth by using authority with kindness, compassion and wisdom. Wherever you have power over another individual, you also have a learning opportunity. Invite abundance into your life by showing that you can act responsibly and for the good of all, rather than in any kind of selfish manner. Remember, just because you have the power to do something doesn’t mean that you necessarily should.
Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Jupiter Direct in Capricorn
Jupiter encourages you to step out of your comfort zone, so you can seek growth by simply saying yes more often when you would otherwise have said no. Taking a chance on life will pay dividends now. Don’t hesitate to speak out on moral or ethical issues too, as your words will have a power and influence which matters.
Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Jupiter Direct in Capricorn
For you, this transit influence is about what you give rather than what you get. You already have abundant resources, even if you don’t realize it. Share what you have, whether that’s money, time, energy, skill, love or knowledge. By dividing up your resources you will multiply them, not diminish them.
Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Jupiter Direct in Capricorn
This Jupiter Transit activates your love and partnership zone, encouraging you to seek emotional abundance by cultivating a spiritual or karmic link with your sweetheart. Spend time together sharing your experiences, your dreams and your visions. Stay away from people who just want to use you; you’ll recognize those who value you.
Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 22) During Jupiter Direct in Capricorn
Seek abundance through volunteering or serving in some way. Opportunities for happiness will multiply if you can help out in your community or campaign for the vulnerable in some way. This could very well be hard work, but that’s a good thing – if you are idle or lazy during this period, opportunities will diminish.
Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 23 – September 22) During Jupiter Direct in Capricorn
It’s time to take a chance – on yourself. This Jupiter Transit encourages you to use your own hidden creative talents to greater effect. You have the skills but you’re not showcasing them. Avoid taking risks with money or love right now but do take an emotional risk by showing the world what you can do - you’ll be rewarded.
Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 23 – October 22) During Jupiter Direct in Capricorn
For you, Libra, abundance comes by moving past a family or personal trauma. You can do this largely through forgiving those responsible, even – especially – if they don’t deserve it. Removing those emotional blocks will create emotional freedom for you, and a sense of happiness and abundance which can’t be beaten.
Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Jupiter Direct in Capricorn
You’re restless, intellectually – so give your mind something to do. For you, Scorpio, opportunity beckons through further study or training of some kind. Go back to school, sign up for a new qualification, push yourself to achieve something difficult. Then your future direction will become clearer, and your restlessness will settle.
Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Jupiter Direct in Capricorn
Jupiter is in your money zone, Sagittarius, but don’t fall into the trap of focusing purely on monetary abundance. Start a gratitude journal and reflect on the intangible blessings you have such as health and loving companionship. Good luck is yours for the taking, but an excess of materialism now would not be a good thing.
Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 19) During Jupiter Direct in Capricorn
You’re not normally known for your enthusiasm and joie de vivre, but actually, sharing the warmth of your personality is how you can grow right now. Look out for someone who feels lonely or isolated and reach out to them. You can be a shining light, helping others but also opening up opportunities for yourself.
Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 20– February 17) During Jupiter Direct in Capricorn
Your key to abundance now that Jupiter has turned direct lies in acceptance and reflection. Instead of wasting emotional energy complaining or stressing over life’s circumstances, practice mindfulness and accept where you are. In doing so, you are exhibiting gratitude even for the less-than-great things in life – and this will pay dividends.
An auspicious Jupiter bestows good luck in your objectives zone, Pisces, but it’s important now not to get too focused on what you want and what you intend to achieve. Open up and think about your community too. Working towards a shared goal will bring you more abundance and more satisfaction than simply working towards something personal.
