We all know that Jupiter is the planet associated with luck and expansion. Well, here’s some good news. Once every 12 years or so, Jupiter returns to the place in the sky it occupied on the date of your birth. This is known as our Jupiter return and it usually delivers us a massive boost or seemingly ‘lucky’ break.
Jupiter represents good fortune, optimism and generosity. If we’re having our Jupiter return we usually feel on top of the world and that anything is possible. It’s a time when we can receive apparent ‘out of the blue’ good fortune or we can benefit from the generosity of others. Therefore it’s one of those times where we should focus on our goals as we will receive plenty of support. So, how do we know when our Jupiter return is happening?
Obviously, an astrologer can tell you exactly when your Jupiter return is going to occur but as a rule of thumb it happens at around the ages of 12, 24, 36, 48 and so on, give or take a few months. Jupiter takes 12 years to orbit the sun so therefore spends approximately a year in each sign.
If you have your time and place of birth, an astrologer will be able to tell you exactly which house in your chart Jupiter occupies. This will give you important information about the area of life our personal Jupiter governs and therefore where we can expect to see the most benefits come from. The beauty of knowing this is that it allows us to relax and have confidence that during this period, life will bring us exactly what we need in this particular area (note: I said exactly what we need and not what we want which can be two different things!). We can also ‘stretch’ ourselves under this influence knowing that calculated risks may well turn out in our favour.
Knowing where our Jupiter is and when our Jupiter return will occur allows us to prepare for the times when we are likely to see the best results manifest. If you don’t have your time of birth, don’t worry! Have a think back to what was happening around the time when you were 12, 24, 36 etc. If you discover a link or theme then you can start to see how Jupiter manifests good fortune in your life during your return.
For more information on Jupiter you can book a consultation with one of our gifted astrologers. However, bear in mind that we don’t have to wait 12 years to sample Jupiter’s benefits. Jupiter will meet our ascendant, Sun, Moon or a personal planet during its 12 year cycle and this will also bring in good times and good things at different times.
