Dear Friends and Readers. Jupiter transits through each sign in roughly one year, so Jupiter entering Virgo last occurred 12 years ago. There’s a lot of talented astrologers posting about Jupiter in Virgo. Some posts are quite technical. My preference is not to write for other astrologers but to write for everyday people who have some background and familiarity with astrology and would like to know more. I write these posts with teaching in mind. Planting seeds…

In 45 years I have never lost my passion for understanding people through astrology. I like helping people by bringing astrology down to earth and focusing on solutions to problems they may face, as well as alerting them to opportunities. Gee, folks, have you guessed? Yes, I have Virgo 1st house :)) (late Leo rising). Lately, I find myself with a keen desire for organizing shelves and drawers :))  Bringing order to chaos might be one theme in the coming year, but on all levels — physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. We’ll explore that shortly.

I noticed that some astrologers are charging money for their Jupiter in Virgo posts. I may do that next year when Jupiter enters my 2nd house. It will probably be $12 because I like the number 12 — 12 signs, 12 houses, etc. But this year I still want to shake things up a bit and not use the old format of going through each rising sign. One, I don’t have time. I’m very busy. Two, I want fresh growth, something new…

So here is my idea. I want a few people to write to me on the private reading page and give me complete birth data. Then we’ll put up the chart for all to see ( initials rather than names) and I will point out where the Jupiter opportunities are occurring in that chart. If I get swamped with requests, I may not choose your chart, but I can do some and we will all learn from them together. Learning should be fun !! I want to bring Jupiter in Virgo out of theory and into real life…

OK, if you know where the Virgo energy is in your chart, that’s where Jupiter will expand your opportunities. The only caveat is Jupiter is so expansionary that sometimes a bit of moderation is required to manifest the best luck and growth. In addition, this year is a little tricky for Mutable signs since Saturn will square Virgo from Sag, and Neptune in Pisces will oppose Virgo. This forms what is called a T-square and impels a lot of energy out the empty spot — Gemini. In fact, late May and June 2016 when the Sun, Mercury, and Venus transit through Gemini and create kind of a mutable grand cross. Time management and clear and careful communication will be critical. Mars retrogrades in Sag at 8 degrees and goes back to 23 degrees Scorpio 4-17-16 to 6-29-2016. Same time frame. Mercury is retro 4-28 to 5-22-2016 but in Taurus. Still, next spring is a time to be cautious regarding travel, communication, and important documents and/or contracts. Probably a good time to stay home and organize your filing cabinet as well as making copies of important papers !!!

Virgo is one sign associated with health, nutrition, cleanliness, small pets, gardening (Virgo = the harvest), accounting and bookkeeping, troubleshooting problems and finding brilliant solutions. Jupiter brings you opportunities in these areas. Check which house is Virgo in your chart for further clues and fine-tuning…

Virgo at its best means finding joy in small domestic tasks and chores, not making any difference between work and fun, finding joy through being of service to others, letting your work or hobbies be a labor of love, mastering the details and bringing all the small parts into a beautiful cohesive whole. Like assembling a jigsaw puzzle. I think Jupiter here will help us keep the big picture in mind, even while sorting through a bunch of details. IMO, if we can find the joy in doing the dishes, the floor, the laundry, cleaning the bathroom, etc. as a daily process without lust of result, if we make no difference between pulling weeds and harvesting our garden, if we find joy INSIDE ourselves no matter what we are doing — that is a successful life in the spiritual sense. All other earthly rewards follow and will manifest in your life as a result of that inner peace and happiness. On a more mundane level, this passion for excellence and order and organization may well manifest as a raise, a promotion, a new job, etc. There may also be opportunities for travel and/or further education at work that will be paid for by your employer.

I have noticed that men with either Mercury and Venus in Virgo or Venus and Mars in Virgo are excellent with building and woodworking. Must be that precision applied to the details :))…they do beautiful work.

Jupiter in Virgo offers us a chance to improve health and wellness through incorporating new information, possibly new research coming out about the food we eat. Food is the best first line of defense against illness. And there is more new research already about the benefits of exercise and movement vs. being sedentary.

Virgos are famous for spotting the flaws, and Jupiter here could exaggerate that tendency. Sometimes Virgos are so hard on themselves they get headaches. Jupiter could also be helpful to be more positive and optimistic about who you are, helping your inner thought patterns lighten up, help you be more TOLERANT of yourself and others. I think we have a choice here. New information and philosophies about our thinking and analyzing processes can help reprogram how we view ourselves. Besides, isn’t it more fun to be a Santa Claus instead of a sourpuss?

Most Virgos are wonderful about organizing stuff. Whether its on the mental or physical level, this is a great year to organize your home, your work environment, your hobbies and tools, your health — both mental and physical, and your outlook on life in general. One of my daughters found a great website a few years ago — www.flylady.com   It’s about making housework easier, being organized, and they sell great tools for household chores.

Time management will be more important for all of us this year, no matter where your Virgo energy is in your chart, and this is due to so many mutable sign transits. Be on time or even a bit early. Avoid gossip, rumor and innuendo. Let people tell their own news. Strive for the ideal but keep in mind that perfection does not exist on the material plane, so don’t kick yourself for honest mistakes. Strive for CONSTRUCTIVE criticism rather than harsh words that immediately put other people on the defensive. And you guys know me by now — don’t forget to grow a garden !!! Even if it’s just a few herb plants. That makes you a producer and not just a consumer. Virgos get a great sense of satisfaction from being productive :))… Blessings, Jenae

Good Morning dear friends and readers,  Venus in Virgo is very compatible with Mercury in Scorpio during the 2nd week of October.  That time is ideal for business meetings, as well as searching for answers — research, health questions, and finding lost items.  Venus trine Pluto is very good for renewing your health and uncovering buried treasure.  If you can’t go rock hunting, at least go through stuff at the back of your drawers and closets…J  Venus in Virgo in general is  a good time to organize ourselves.  Taking clothes to the cleaners, sewing on buttons, repairing our wardrobe is favored most of October.  So, you can clean your closet.  You can also clean house but even better you can clean your body.  The 2nd week is favorable for detoxing the body and for seeing your dentist.  Studying nutrition is another possibility.

Venus is square transiting Jupiter in Gemini the 3rd week of October.  That would be a time for caution as far as over-extending yourself.  Squares are symbols of the need to make adjustments and there could be an unexpected bill to challenge your budget.  This is not the week to overspend.  I had a client years ago and a designer put a bunch of furniture in her house and before even getting her approval on the items, sent her a bill for many thousands.  Needless to say, my client was quite annoyed.  Venus was square Jupiter at that time.  The worst way to play this transit would be to assume you have funds and support when you don’t.  Count those chickens AFTER they have hatched.  And while you’re waiting, make sure any financial interaction with the people in your life is mutually beneficial.  Sometimes with this particular transit, someone wants something for nothing.  This is not your best time for major shopping either.

Mars transiting through Sag after the 8th is in uneasy aspect to Venus in Virgo but never hits an exact square.  While this may not manifest in fights or disagreements, there is still some unease lurking below the surface with male/female relationships.  Venus in Virgo is all about the little details, while Mars in Sag is appreciating the big picture and not sweating the small stuff.  October, while the Sun is in Libra,  is a month to appreciate the rapport with your mate or partner.  Be polite and look for the things you DO agree upon.  If you need to have a conversation with a partner about a potentially touchy subject, make sure it’s after a good meal.  Using active listening techniques will also help a lot.  Looking at these positions of Venus and Mars, if you want to do fall clean-up at the house and he wants to go hunting, you can try to incorporate a bit of both plans.  Compromise does not mean cop out.  Do try to meet in the middle.

As Saturn enters Scorpio on October 6th for several years, all of us will be tested one way or another in our ability to make good decisions that allow all parties to benefit.  Might as well start now…:)

Comments and suggestions are welcomed…Blessings, Jenae
