The Jupiter in Virgo year is one for honing crafts, growing through your work and habits.  I've really felt that in my own life (here in August of 2016) -- a boost of faith from being able to go big Jupiter-style with habits. 

I've been ale to add exercise to my morning, which is a first, and it gives me an energetic lift for the day.  It's got me looking at other habits I can add, that then add up to a really satisfying daily rhythm.


Let's review this Jupiter year, and reflect on what's been emphasized.  Jupiter will go into Libra, and the cosmic enlarger focuses on relating, self-image, beauty and art. 

A Future That Makes Sense

The luck-bringer gets crafty in Virgo, starting August 12th, 2015, and ending September 9th, 2015. Jupiter's work detail in industrious Virgo expands on the popularity of artisan skills like knitting and all things DIY. 

It could be a year of rare self-discipline, when there's faith in daily practice toward a goal.  You might find it's time to focus on getting a proper skill, honing your skills or add new techniques to your repertoire. 

The higher vision is one that's holistic, not compartmentalized.  The visionary now is one that sees the Whole Picture. 

Earth signs (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo) get cosmic backing for their plans.  Jupiter influences how we face the future.  And the particularly earth sign commonsensical way of moving forward and planning for the future is a guiding light in 2015, into 2016.

  Earth signs get some cred for being sensible, and others may look to you for guidance. 

The future looks bright when the actions of today make sense for what you'd like to create. 

If your Jupiter is in Virgo, it's your Jupiter return -- a year of growth spurts, especially when you're in sync with your higher calling.

  When you've gotten off track, it's a year to realign with that inner knowing of your calling.  Look for your Jupiter sign on the birth chart or the Jupiter Sign Table.

Process is the Reward

Jupiter in Virgo is a path of being happy when productive.  Some trust comes with this transit, that if there's a regular investment in your work, the lucky breaks will come.  It bestows the patience to move deliberately toward a goal, from the actions of each day. 

Jupiter's time in Leo, the showy fire sign, ends in August 2015.  If a big dream is in the works, Jupiter's move into Virgo is one of being in the groove of making it real.  Virgo is a sensible earth sign with a genius for planning things out in steps. 

Virgo is also a mutable sign, with the ability to adapt and make discerning choices.  This could be a time for growth through refining and self-improvement.  Or the year could be one of changes big and small, as you experiment with what works and what doesn't.  Faith comes from the confidence in that ability to tweak things here, simplify this or eliminate that. 

It's a year to make solid gains, from day-to-day effort.  And that fosters well-being, especially when the work is satisfying and shaping the future you desire.


Dates for this Jupiter transit through Virgo are:  August 11th, 2015 to September 9th, 2016.

Sane - Sanitize - Sanitary

Virgos act like they can SEE germs, with their microscopic vision.  With the Greater Benefic  Jupiter in Virgo, practicing good hygiene brings big rewards.   

With Virgo as a guiding (Jupiterian) impulse, it's advantageous to clean up your act.  Growth comes from purifying, detoxing, clearing and simplifying.  It could show up as a move away from the synthetic in all areas of life, to the natural. 

This is a subtle way to restore faith and trust in life.  It's about removing the toxins that build up in the spirit, body and mind.  Some possibilities: 

  • Learning about plant allies, and other medicinal wonders of nature.
  • Attention on the root causes of disease and prevention.
  • Knowledge about the wisdom of the body, and its intimacy with the Earth body.
  • Expanded awareness of what's toxic in our world, and detox remedies, when possible. 

Jupiter Virgo Speaks

"At some point in your life, if you're lucky, you get to design the way in which you evolve."  Daniel Day Lewis (Taurus Sun with Jupiter Virgo)

"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.  The fears are paper tigers.  You can do anything you decide to do.  You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward."  Amelia Earhart (Sun Leo with Jupiter-Mars in Virgo)
