Good News For Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn – Jupiter In Libra Will Be Smiling On You!


The cardinal signs have had it rough the past few years, owing largely to the square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. There’s a bit of relief on the horizon, though, as planet of luck and good fortune Jupiter moves into cardinal sign Libra on September 9th. This transit will last until October 2017, and anyone with planets or angles in Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn will feel optimism and an urge to grow related to where Jupiter in Libra is transiting in your chart.


Obviously, those who have Libra in their birth charts will get the biggest kiss from Jupiter. Many Libra Sun folks will experience a Sun-Jupiter conjunction in their solar returns (a predictive chart cast every birthday, lasting until the next birthday); early degree Libra Sun’s will experience this conjunction in their solar returns in 2016, later degree Libra Sun’s will have this signature in their 2017 solar returns. People with Libra risings/ascendants -whether natal or progressed- should watch out for the time period when Jupiter crosses over the ascendant and into the first house; new opportunities will be more obvious and will probably be a result of receiving or seeking out attention from others. People with natal Jupiter in Libra will, of course, experience their Jupiter Return; completing one major cycle of expansion and growth and beginning a new one afresh. People with other Libra placements should look to the house involved to determine when and where extra luck and good times will present itself.


However, the other cardinal signs won’t be left out, either. Jupiter will be opposing Aries and squaring Cancer and Capricorn. I know these are supposedly “difficult” aspects. However, Jupiter is beneficial wherever it is, in whatever aspect. I actually don’t mind hard Jupiter aspects, they’re productive! The easy aspects often feel so easy that one is inclined to do nothing at all with their potential. Jupiter opposing or squaring Aries, Cancer and Capricorn is a transit that can bear fruit, even if it means you get a little kick in the butt to get you going.


Remember, though, that one caveat of Jupiter transits impacting your natal chart in a big way is the tendency to put on weight! This is especially true if Jupiter is hitting the natal ascendant, Sun, Moon, or Venus. Good times can lead to overeating, overdrinking, oversleeping…


Jupiter in Libra will also sextile those with natal planets or angles in Leo and Sagittarius, and trine natal Gemini and Aquarius. The sextile and trine are easy aspects, but aren’t particularly motivating or productive. They do point to either a reduction in stress or a peaceful feeling related to the areas of life in the natal chart that are impacted. The North Node moves into Leo May 10th, 2017, starting an auspicious cycle for Leo; Jupiter in Libra sextile the North Node in Leo late summer and early autumn 2017 is a particularly robust time period for Leo’s (especially those who have Leo in the mid to late degrees).


Even if you aren’t going to be feeling the effects of Jupiter’s transit of Libra in a big way, Jupiter is always our little ace in the hole and especially now that Jupiter is free of the sign of its detriment. You will still want to look to the house of your natal chart that Jupiter will be moving over to see where there’s potential for success that you can take advantage of!

  1. Thanks Clarissa. I hope some of this new energy can help with a huge decision I am faced with.

  2. Does this also apply to a Virgo on the Libra Cusp? 9/21

    • Jupiter will be at 2 degrees Libra on September 21, you’ll definitely have the Sun-Jupiter conjunction in your solar return. You won’t have the Jupiter crossing your Sun transit as long, but September and October should be big months for you. Do you have other cardinal planets or angles?

      • No I don’t have any other cardinal planets and I’m not sure about the angle. Although there is something about my Sagitarrius rising being a late enough degree that somehow it shadows over into Capricorn.

  4. I like Jupiter in Libra. Maybe because Jupiter in Virgo hasn’t been much to sing about. Next year I have a Jup, Sat & Mars Return, all in January!! Venus Return in May. What’s that saying–the chickens are coming home to roost? Hope it’s not their fertilizer, had enough of that!

  5. Great post Clarissa. Good gosh, having a natal moon in libra 9th house, i could hope for some relief so far its been squared on and off by pluto in capricorn in the 12th, has taken all my courage to let go of so much emotional baggage that I wasn’t even aware of. Also hope to get some ease out of jupiter trining my aquarius asc. Oh okay okay! Enough of being a softcock, i see the neccessity of hard transits as encouragement to our evolution but fuk, im entitled to a little complaint now and again MUAAHAHAHAH

    • Lol Michael you’re funny 🙂 we all get to that point of being done with trying to learn lessons from the rough transits. Jupiter rules the 9th, so it’s a double dose of relief for you I think. Jupiter conjunct Moon most definitely shows a person the good in life again, aspecting ascendant even better. Enjoy!

    Hi Clsrisa, I’m Cancer I was waiting for Jupiter in zvirgo to open up opportunity cities on !y career. But I lost my job. What cvan I spect with Jupiter in Libra?

  7. As a Capricorn with a natal Jupiter in Libra I wonder what this good news means to me. Is my job is about to end to make place for a better job. Am I going to start my dream issues (yes I have some for aftework time, that never comes) will I be in a couple after so long as a single mother. I feel that my okay life, need a change for the better. To end a circle sound to me like giving up on something and I want to expend what I have. I feel I have a promise to myself, to do my best, to invest in this life, and I am asking if this is the right time for efforts. Thanks for reading, something in your honest writing bring me the freedom to ask you openly.

    • Jupiter in libra at the 10th house

    • Jupiter passing through the 10th gets you noticed, so put yourself out there as publicly as possible for best results. You can also look back to the last time Jupiter was in Libra (October 2004-2005) to see how it played out and what you can do better this time. It won’t be an exact repeat since all the other transits are different now, but just look at what got you noticed and who it was, what type of person (10th).

      • Hi Clarissa and thank you for answering me. It took me some time to go back to those years of 2004-2005 and so I did. what I discover for my surprise was, that I had good offers then but…the road not taken- I didn’t take them, since they was below my expectations. that was a mistake. for now I try to think out of the box, go with the flow and navigate with the paddle instead of get out of the water!

    • Have you thought about doing a reading with Clarissa? I have ordered some reports from her and they are as excellent as her blog writing. The questions you are asking would probably best be addressed in a reading though.

      Also, as a Capricorn Sun, have you had your transiting Pluto conj natal Sun aspect? (depends on your date of birth)? If you haven’t yet, when it comes, it will be very painful, but change your life.

      • I am thinking about and will do it soon. as to your question, from my look at the transit it seems to me (more guessing then knowing) that Pluto is passing my natal sun right now. actually this is what I feel, that I am in a sort of “time” in my life, when I am doing much, will do more then that, and don’t give up!

  8. Wow, I’m a capicorn. I feel the trine.

  9. saw nice nice
