January 22, Jupiter enters Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. The first house represents the self, the I AM, the individual ego, and is the beginning of a 12 year Jupiter cycle, as it spends roughly a year in each sign. Aries is a fire sign and we experienced Jupiter in this sign June 6-September 8, 2010 when it first entered the sign of the Ram. Thus Jupiter will be in Aries until June 5, 2011 when it enters Taurus.
Jupiter is the financial planet and the planet of luck, abundance and expansion. Whatever Jupiter touches, it increases. Aries is exuberant, moves quickly, and makes things happen. In some respects this will give us a jump start on the New Year, and it will represent a vast difference from the laid back energy of Pisces we have experienced over the past year.
Science and technology will make advances by leaps and bounds the first six months of the year, and there will be some new starts for business.
This will be a once every 12 year advantage for Aries and other fire signs. Jupiter was last in Aries February 14, 1999-June 28, and again October 24, 1999-Febuary 15, 2000.
The planet of gain and expansion will affect the Sun signs in the following manner:
Aries-New beginnings and relationships
Taurus-Luck with hospitals and institutions, the intuitive self-a time of self and spiritual healing, and issues that are secret and hidden
Gemini-Friends as well as cherished hopes and wishes-organizations
Cancer-Priorities and career
Leo-Education and medical matters, travel, general outlook on life
Virgo-Joint finances. Taxes, partner’s money, sex, regeneration, lawsuits
Libra-Relationships, Partnerships, courts
Scorpio-Work and health, pets
Sagittarius-Friends, children, love affairs
Capricorn-The home and foundation, new beginnings
Aquarius-Immediate family members and co-workers, trips the mind and communication in general
