The jovial giant of planetary joy has been transiting through Virgo for the last 13 months, but as of September 9, we’re under the influence of Jupiter in Libra, and with this comes a definite shift of energy. Jupiter in Virgo just delivered plain hard work, because that’s the trademark of Virgo. Did you feel that you were out on a limb, facing things alone, having to work harder or smarter to get things accomplished? Yeah … thank the aspects to Jupiter for that.

The upside of this is that you got all the mundane stuff out of the way. You cleared the obstacles, and now you can start to reap the rewards of your hard work. Jupiter in Libra brings you much more opportunity to lighten up and get jiggy with things — especially when it comes to romance!

Even if you’re not pursuing passion, Jupiter in Libra should help you to improve all of your relationships — intimate and otherwise. You’ll just need to cultivate a bit of patience, for you’ll be motivated to move ahead. This transit will take approximately 13 months to pass. This means you’ve got time to get this right!

The last year or so may have removed people from your life, or exposed flaws with relationships. Now Jupiter is here to help you reconnect to others in a better way — after all, Libra does love harmony. Cooperation should be easier, and socializing less complicated than it was over the previous year. How will this influence you, personally? Let’s take a look!

Aries — Stay On Your Toes

With Jupiter throwing his good fortune back into your sign with an opposition for the next year, Aries is definitely one of the chosen ones. Relationships are highlighted in a good way — you just need to make sure that you don’t get too eager or too complacent. What you invest into things is going to be reflected back to you, so make sure your thoughts and actions are good ones!

Taurus — Take the Time to Grow

Virgo brought you industriousness, and now it’s up to Jupiter to put the fun-factor back into things. Where it’s unlikely that there are going to be any huge fanfares of passion and pizzazz, the year does seem more pleasant and optimistic. This is a good year for Taurians to grow your soul, too, so if you’ve been on the fence about a spiritual group or practice, now is the time to take the plunge.

Gemini — Avoid Shortcuts

Jupiter in Libra is good news for all air signs, and that’s you, Gemini! You’ve been tried and tested, stretched to your limit, and now it’s time for a reprieve. Shake off the blues and get this party started! Don’t get complacent though. Jupiter rewards hard work, but it might tempt you to be a bit lazy, and look for shortcuts. Resist that, and take the high road. You’ll be glad you did in the end.

Cancer — A Happier Home

Things are going to happen on the homefront over the next year. While this is not the strongest of influences for people born under the zodiac sign of Cancer, it will help to make your home life happier, and your personal life percolate. If you’ve got any thoughts about a bigger house — or a bigger family — you just may see that happen this year. Expansion is the keyword, so expect the unexpected.

Leo — Stay Optimistic

You’re among the lucky ones, for your natural good fortune is going to be accentuated as Jupiter enters Libra. Leo’s optimism should increase, and you’ll be able to see the blessings in most situations without too much effort. The more optimistic you are, the more luck you’ll draw into your life and relationships, and that’s always a winning combination.

Virgo — Watch Your Checks and Balances

Virgo’s time to shine was last year, but even though Jupiter is leaving your sign, it’s not going far. The hard work you started has a chance to come to fruition and bring you abundance — in your finances as well as in your bank balance. Just watch your impulse. Even though you’re normally careful, the meticulousness of the last year might give way to overindulgence now!

Libra — Be Persistent

You’re starting another 12 year cycle of luck and love; what are you going to do with it, Libra? The next 12 months is going to set you up to how the next 12 years unfold, so choose carefully. You’ve got luck, laughter, and love on your side, but it’s going to take persistence and concentration to make it last. New job, new love, new spirituality, even chances to travel could all come your way this year.

Scorpio — Keep a Calm Mind

You’re naturally inquisitive and probing, and this is going to increase, but Scorpios may be turning your intensity onto your own feelings in order to take stock of where you’re going. Meditation and spiritual practices are good for you. Jupiter can bring you deeper insights into things, and this is necessary for when the jovial giant enters your sign in October, next year.

Sagittarius — Long-term Rewards

You’ve had Saturn in your Sun sign for what probably feels like an eternity now. Saturn’s such a disciplinarian! The thing to remember is that Saturn brings long-lasting results, while Jupiter brings things that are more short-lived. Sagittarians will feel some of the pressure lessening during this transit, but you still need to apply yourself if you want to reap the long-term rewards.

Capricorn — Focus on Finances

Capricorn is one of the two signs for which Jupiter is going to be a hard taskmaster (Cancer is the other one), but even when he’s squaring up to you and making you toe the line, Jupiter’s still a positive influence. Yes, the work still needs to be done, but you’ll be able to see where and how, so that you can make the most out of this transit. Your finances and career are particularly highlighted.

Aquarius — Expand Your Mind

Aquarius is the last of the air signs, and you’ll come into your own with this transit. For you, this is a great time to expand your knowledge, learn new things, travel, and enrich your spirit. You’re still going to face your obstacles, still going to feel alienated now and again, but Jupiter’s influence will take the sting out of that, and give you better than average odds of coming out on top.

Pisces — Watch for False Friends

Not the easiest of transits for you, either, dear Pisces, but you still see success. This is a year when false friends are going to come out of the woodwork, and you’ll see who’s got your back and who’s stabbing you in it. Losing friends, jobs, or anything else never seems pleasant when it’s happening, but this is a time for growing and expanding, and if you can just go with the flow, things will turn out amazingly for you in just over a year.
