On May 16th, Jupiter moves into fertile Taurus for the next 12 months. Luck and wealth want staying power in this earth sign. It can be a definite change of pace, as Taurus is a fixed sign and one who enjoys a slower tempo. Jupiter will want to see tangible results from his efforts. He will shore up his resources to gain sustainability.
Jupiter is a transpersonal planet meaning that he directs more of societal trends and cultural implications. He takes the hard earned experience from Saturn and makes meaning of it. Jupiter justifies information into wisdom. He also looks to the horizon and broadens our scope. Jupiter expands. As my good friend Sam Reynolds says, “Jupiter shows us our excellence and our excesses.” Jupiter in Taurus on a societal level, can bring about a mindset of the have and have-nots. Watch for the tendency for scarcity mindset, hanging onto things just in case of future needs, and justifying behavior or decisions. Further class division can be a potential outcome.
In Taurus, Jupiter will follow Venus’ cues, which means he could want to splurge more on opulence, sensual pleasures, and things that promote beauty. He may spend a bit more on the upgrade, but will weigh luxury with enduring choices. The money spent will need to be practical – this is an earth sign, after all. For example, Jupiter may decide he needs to splurge on upgrading the heating and cooling system so he can justify nudging the thermostat with a smile. Larger expenses are possible, but only once he can see the potential benefit.
Having Uranus co-present with Jupiter adds a bit of a wild card to the mix. However, they won’t conjoin exactly until April 2024. Uranus asks us to individuate and move towards authenticity. Uranus, as a whole, can be quite explosive and isn’t afraid to make changes or bring new information to light. Self-sufficiency will be an overarching theme in Taurus with these two planets there.
If Taurus on one of your angles or Jupiter is your profected planet of the year, this ingress will have the greatest impact. Look to see what house Taurus occupies in your natal chart to see what topics of your life will get highlighted.
