What Taurus natives can expect - astrological descriptions of Jupiter generalize it as the planet of expansion. According to “Space Almanac” by Anthony R. Curtis, Jupiter is so powerful that “. . . it sprays 216 trillion watts of electricity across 480 million miles into earth every 27 days . . .” Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory attribute some of the electrical energy to the sun’s emissions. Interestingly, the 27 day cycle is reminiscent of the cyclic changes of the astrological signs divided into arcs.
Jupiter is leaving Aries and entering the arc of Taurus. Keeping in mind the power of this huge planet, imagine how Aries, a fire sign, has manifested throughout the world. The last twelve years showcased plenty of explosions – man made and otherwise. Forest fires have been in the picture frequently, as well. But now, Jupiter is transiting the astrology sign of Taurus – an earth sign.
Transition into Taurus – Taurus is known for its stability. Hopefully, somewhat of a calming down effect will replace the incendiary incidents that show up so frequently on the nightly news.
Astrology wise – How does Jupiter make its influence felt? Known as the “greater Benefic,” Jupiter is regarded as the planet of development.
Jupiter transits include any kind of growth. You may want to add a room to your house, increase your income, or expand your mind. You may even have more of a tendency to gain weight during this period.
Planetary movement “comes into orb,” as opposed to the action of turning on a switch. In any event, the energy of the transit may already be operational with some Taurus natives. Those would be the individuals who were born in the beginning of Taurus.
Approximately 12 years is how long it takes for Jupiter to complete a revolution. There are retrograde periods, so it’s no simple matter to pinpoint an exact time period (about 3-4 years) that has the most direct influence in a person’s astrology chart. These retrograde and forward periods also factor into the timing.
In essence keep a watchful eye for opportunities, Taurians. Don’t run out and buy a whole lot of lottery tickets or anything like that, though. This is more of something that happens to you, rather than you making it happen. Windfall is the perfect description for how good opportunities become part of the picture in the astrology sign of the bull, Taurus.
