Jupiter enters Scorpio today [October 10th, 9:20AM, EST] ushering in growth and expansion through transmutation, something I’m personally looking forward to. Jupiter in Scorpio, for me, symbolizes fearlessness and survival; a sort of spiritual digging/unearthing, and there’s nothing pretty about it. That’s the joy of it all (at least for me it is) raw and penetrating.
I also foresee an increase in occult studies, shadow work, and the darker parts of the soul/psyche. We see this in popular culture with the rise of television shows that deal with everything from zombies (The Walking Dead), witchcraft and mediumship (Midnight Texas), and magical Gods (American Gods)
Jupiter is tied into religion and faith, more so than Neptune. Even the church of Satan has become more visible. After all, Scorpio’s ruler (Pluto/Hades) rules the underworld, and getting down and dirty to the heart of the matter is what Scorpio does best.
Of course themes surrounding sex and death (death can also be symbolic) may also take center stage during this time.
Facing our “demons” (and possibly be-friending them) can bring about a wonderful learning and healing opportunity. Scorpio has tremendous regenerative abilities.
This takes me back to my 2006 solar return when Jupiter was in Scorpio. I went through a divorce and the death of a loved one, but I also began to reevaluate what I valued and even my own self-worth. Jupiter in Scorpio was transiting my 2nd house at the time and it felt as though I had unearthed a buried treasure. I also shed some of my materialism, de-cluttered, and realized how liberating it was to live with less.
I wasn’t a big fan of Jupiter in Libra, believe it or not. All that “niceness” was becoming too contrived for me, almost phoney in some regards. I don’t see us holding back with Jupiter in Scorpio. And why would we want to?

Happy Solar Return to you Scorpio! Abundance and movement are two key words during your solar return for 2016/2017.
*This reading can also be applied to those with Scorpio rising.
Venus/Saturn in your financial sector is forcing you to function with less and this is actually a blessing in disguise. Working hard/long hours may be putting a damper on your love life or making it difficult to spend time with those you love but the payoff is worth it. Getting control of your finances and making some solid adjustments when it comes to your earnings is something you’ll be forced to do. The good news is Jupiter, planet of expansion and abundance (and ruler of the SR 2nd house) makes a positive aspect to Venus. The Chariot card is often a symbol of being disciplined and in control (Saturn). Drive…

The warriors spirit takes an interesting turn when it enters the dark waters of Scorpio (January 3rd, 9:32 AM EST) until March 5th, when it then ingresses into Sagittarius. Mars in the natal chart gives insight into one’s physical energy and how one takes action. Mars is also linked to physical/sexual attraction and excitement. Stimulation can be discovered through working with Mars energy; when in the water signs, intuition is often used to bring about tangible results. Mars is focused/directed energy.
Mars in Scorpio has a drive and focus that is ferocious and calculating. The Mars in Scorpio individual is often covert and investigative; they assert themselves through intense emotions. Mars isn’t exactly well-placed in this particular sign. The Martian energy, if under duress, can use manipulative means in order to obtain their goal, but for the most part Mars is Scorpio is highly passionate and focused when it comes to what they want. They often make amazing private investigators and researches. When it comes to getting to the bottom of a situation, no one does it like Scorpio. They pretty much have X-ray vision in that respect.
The Mars in Scorpio individual has strong sexual urges that are expressed and shared through deep emotional and psychological bonding. Not as bold or upfront, as say, Mars in Aries, Mars in Scorpio tends to get the job done behind the scenes. Issues surrounding self-protection and the need to control almost every situation that crosses their path can be an issue, especially with more stressful aspects such as the square and opposition.
How will Mars’ ingress into Scorpio impact us on a personal level? Our ability to move forward and make things happen may be dampened by obsessive secretiveness and selfish desires. The more positive expression of this energy will be Scorpio’s fixed nature; our desires are guided through intuitive abilities and a strong sense of inner knowing. The need to achieve will be persistent and calculating. We’re taking no prisoners this time around! The, meet-you-half-way energy that Mars in Libra ushered in, will be the furthest from our minds. We’re going to make things happen, no matter what the cost. We’ll more than likely be courageous behind the scenes.
Healing stones for Mars in Scorpio: Mars can be quite aggressive if not properly harnessed. Scorpio, if operating on a lower vibration, can be possessive and compulsive; Scorpio is very much a sign of purging, psychic sensitivity and powerful regenerative abilities. Use this energy to tap into your deepest desires and healing emotional involvement with others.
- Lapis Lazuli – Good for empowerment
- Sardonyx – Excellent to work with for determination
- Smoky Quartz – Helps to release blockages (Scorpio tends to have issues with emotional blockages due to subconscious fears of being overwhelmed by their emotions. This can lead to secretiveness, trust-issues, and feeling as though they can’t “open up”)
- Obsidian – Another stone that’s good for determination (Mars)
- Black Star Diopside – A stone for sheer will-power and addictive patterns (water signs in general can suffer from addiction issues)
