Jupiter in Scorpio ....evoking the drama ...

On the 11th October 17 Jupiter enters Scorpio for a twelve month transit. Breadth and depth in all areas and at many levels. The profound nature of Pluto carried on Jupiter’s generous frequency in the formidable vibration of Scorpio: feared, revered, loathed and legendary often as the villain of the zodiac.
The Jupiter/Scorpio journey is concerned with power, and its rightful places and uses. In magnifying its misuses, the often elaborate nature of Jupiter will bring to the surface that which is possible and that which lurks waiting to be tried and tested. The drama of life, the heights and peaks to be conquered, achievements to be reaped - both great and small. 
Scorpio has its roots in the deepest kind of renaissance and transformational processes ….. sexuality, compulsions, obsessions, jealousies, feuds, grievances, grudges, vengeance, retaliation and vindication … all the province of Scorpio. So Jupiter carrying the information and unfolding of details enlarges and stages all these things and lays to waste or lays to rest. Power is energy, although some people confine the understanding of power to the prominent and famous as a quality it is just as rife within schoolchildren as it is within corporate boardrooms or banking empires. Without the knowledge and use of our own power we are unfit to face life. Defenseless within our personal world. 
The last time Jupiter was in Scorpio was the autumn of 2005 to the late autumn of 2006. The Jupiter transits of twelve months to each sign very much echo the chapters of a book, whereas the Jupiter transit around the zodiac is more like a volume.
Jupiter in any sign means the magnification of the worst and the best of wherever it lies. The searching and the battling for more assertive or effective power (energy) is one which takes us to a deeper understanding of our own worst faults and traits. What lengths are we prepared to go for this weaponry, this self-enhancement? Or what is it we will sacrifice within ourselves for the good of others? Scorpio at its most evolved (Bald Eagle) is capable of the noblest of sacrifices, the greatest of achievements for the common good at the expense of self. At its worst (Grey Lizard) there is nothing it will not stoop too to aid and abet the power it seeks for its own satisfaction or aggrandizement. It is a sign of extremes.
Jupiter going forward in Scorpio will be in three phases. Beginning the middle of October – when it really starts to bite – until the second week of March when it retrogrades and gives pause for modification, is the first phase. Then from March out until the second week in July is the second phase, after which it begins its last lap of the sign out to the second week of November, forming the third phase. Jupiter always moves in three phases through any sign, but in Scorpio these phases are also typical of Pluto: grasping and galvanizing situations, holding them and pushing them beneath the surface, and finally bringing them up again to completion. The period between March and July can be the most important because it is then that the galvanizing of objectives takes place, unhampered and with maximum space for experiment and alteration.
The thing with Jupiter is that situations and issues take on such a prosperous or cavalier facade, seducing us giddily into the midst of it all. And the darker underbelly of Scorpio is disguised by the optimism and opulence of Jupiter, until perhaps the holding force of Pluto has us where we cannot back out or where we feel powerless to change things. The power of Pluto is quite unique and often understated, but none-the-less it lies ultimately at the heart of many dramatic and pivotal events. Jupiter in Scorpio evinces dramas, the degree of which depend on our own lives and perspective and the quality of what is involved. From its merger emerges often the greatest potential to healing.
The categories we can think of within our hunan condition which may lack or crave power are numerous. Socio-economic. Political. Business. Lifestyle. Career. Emotional. It may be an endless list but it can usually be parsed down to very definitive needs and desires in any individual, group or collective. Any one enterprise or business. 
Jupiter in Scorpio heals through dark channels which often become lighter as the journey progresses. Caverns of massive resources within the human soul and the human psyche. Places of forgotten or forbidden recesses where murky memories and even murkier action have lain. It is not for the timid – this full expose of what Jupiter in Scorpio can achieve and accomplish. For some the aspirations evoked are modest. But for anyone wanting to aspire to some of the bigger things that dazzle and beckon on this illuminated arc of discovery and inquiry which is Jupiter in Scorpio then the rigors of transformation at its most demanding may be necessary. Scorpio is also the vibration of pain, and of endurance, and often it is the mastering of these qualities which leads to the real essence of power. For some it may just be a question of going in and retrieving power or claiming it after many chapters of finding what is needed or how to utilize it. For others it begins the start of epic challenges and journeys.
Jupiter in Scorpio is the cornucopia of revelation and stimulation. It rejuvenates and invigorates and this can only be done with some deep searching or excavation. Some sense of what lies beneath. It is no discriminator of age, gender or culture. It knows no bounds where universal funding is concerned. The Scorpio/Pluto association with wealth and investment is active in all areas of Jupiter’s sojourn through the sign. Remembering that wealth is an asset harder to define. Jupiter is never shy of exposition, of information transcribed for all; the secrets of words, behaviors and actions, archived and forgotten, locked and sealed … of buried treasure or matters best left to lie.
