Are you ready for some juicy Jupiter in Aquarius horoscopes? Lucky planet Jupiter moves into a brand new sign, entering Aquarius on December 19th, 2020.

Jupiter will be in Aquarius for most of 2021, staying until May 13th (when Jupiter enters Pisces briefly) and returning to Aquarius on July 28th. Jupiter officially leaves Aquarius on December 28th, 2021, just over a full year from now.

For the retrograde period, Jupiter retrograde in Aquarius occurs from July 28th to October 18th, 2021. Jupiter turns retrograde earlier, but that starts in Pisces, so it’s only retrograde in Aquarius for less than three months.

Jupiter is expansive, wants to focus on the positives, and loves opportunity. Aquarius is a sign that governs change, what’s different and unconventional, and our individuality.

Both Jupiter and Aquarius are independent and don’t care to be boxed in. That makes this Jupiter in Aquarius transit excellent for embracing your individuality!

Before we get into the horoscopes, let’s review some notes about Jupiter in Aquarius (and if you’d like to review your December 2020 horoscopes, you can check out the horoscopes page!).

Jupiter in Aquarius in the Natal Chart

If you were born while Jupiter was in Aquarius, you have Jupiter in Aquarius in your birth chart.

As a Jupiter in Aquarius native, you’re likely someone who naturally embraces what’s different and unconventional. You may be a rebel in your own right, and you can push against the norms.

You’re someone who likely cares a lot about the world at large, not just now but for generations to come. You can take a stand and fight for what you believe in.

You may be inventive, innovative, and brilliant in some ways. Others may see you as eccentric and strange at times, but this probably doesn’t bother you and is more like a badge of pride!

Jupiter in Aquarius Returns

When a transiting planet comes back to the same position, it was when you were born. This is called a planetary return. Jupiter returns to the position it was at when you were born roughly every 11 - 12 years.

When Jupiter returns, this can be a time when you assess the opportunities you have and how you go about creating them, and when you look at how you’ve expanded your life (or haven’t), and the experiences you’ve had and learned from (or haven’t).

When you go about things the right way, Jupiter returns can bring an important opportunity or experience that benefits you somehow.

A Jupiter in Aquarius return can bring out opportunities for change, for one of your dreams, for having a wider impact, or being true to yourself.

Jupiter in Aquarius Transit in General

Overall, Jupiter in Aquarius is an excellent time to be the real you. We’re all different in some way, and this would be the period to go with it.

More than that, you can benefit from being true to yourself, which may open up more opportunities for you. Extra incentive to just be you!

Now, we do have to consider that Saturn is in Aquarius while Jupiter is in Aquarius, and Saturn is a lot tougher than Jupiter. We have to be mindful of the Saturn energy mixing with Jupiter in Aquarius, so we’re not squandering this transit by annoying Saturn (this is the Lord of Karma, after all).

These two planets will hook up pretty early in their transits in Aquarius on December 21st, 2020, called the Great Conjunction, which occurs roughly every 20 years. This is a time for results, and in Aquarius, this can involve our dreams and the future.

With Saturn also in Aquarius, we have to make sure whatever we do, we’re responsible, ethical, mature, and smart. Don’t rebel just for anything - have a plan!
