On October 10th, Jupiter will leave the sign of Libra, and enter the sign of Scorpio for a yearlong transit. This is big news (Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system, after all!) as we begin to stretch and grow in new ways. Jupiter in Libra expanded our capacity to connect. Partnerships and collaborations of all kinds were forged. We became more diplomatic while exhibiting traits such as fairness and consideration. Libra is a peaceful and balanced energy; Jupiter’s presence in the sign of the Scales enhanced our ability to relate to others.
Authentic power is power over self. It is internal. It is what allows us to let go of the things we cannot control so that we might harness a greater inner strength. Jupiter in Scorpio expands our ability to cultivate authentic power, as our will to self-determine intensifies. We can only change and grow after having identified the toxins that hold us back, be they psychological, habitual, obsessive, external, compulsive, or all of the above. Jupiter in Scorpio will drudge up the muck that resides beneath the surface of who we are, and in a big way. Skeletons in closets will be revealed. Lies will be unearthed. Wounds will be triggered. This is a necessary process that Scorpio does well. What follows will be a grand release that helps us to heal and evolve.
During this transit, not only will we transform in a most profound way, we will also deepen. We will shed old skin. We will begin to take ownership of our disowned parts. This is the beauty of integration, so do not be afraid. Remember to purge. Give yourself permission to experience ecstasy in all that life has to offer, no matter how taboo. Die the greatest of deaths. Surrender. Rise free and be reborn. Embark on this journey toward soulful liberation.
