Lately we've been going deeper into the oceanic depths of Jupiter in Pisces and how it may symbolize what's going on in our lives. I explained the Jupiter return, as well as my experience of it. Today we take a look at past and future Jupiter Returns for everyone.
Yesterday I explained what may occur during the Jupiter return, and what's been happening in my personal Jupiter return in Pisces so far. While I cannot go into great depth about how a Jupiter return will manifest in each sign, in that article I spoke about the general qualities of a Jupiter return.
Please study the sign qualities of your natal Jupiter to know more about what you can expect to come forth when your Jupiter return happens. This expansive principle opening wider doors to how your Jupiter sign will manifest can also be applied to the times it conjuncts planets in your chart. You can see how we have many expanding cycles happening at the same time, just at different phases of development!
Now for the dates of Jupiter's occupation of the signs. If you were born during one of these periods, you had a Jupiter return at each subsequent period.
It should be easy to see how these times marked major shifts in your life direction. It could have affected anything symbolized by Jupiter, such as your view of your future, the lodestar of your life, or where you knew you had to seek a greater set of opportunities and a more free existence. You would have learned and responded according to your Jupiter sign, in the life area (house) occupied by your natal Jupiter.
As an aside, these approximate 12 year cycles can be seen in terms of 4 quarters, or "seasons." The 3 years after a Jupiter return begins the pattern that emerges from 3-6 years after the conjunction. 6-9 years after the conjunction the wave culminates in a public way, and the last 3 years of the cycle are the harvest, breakdown of the old forms, and closures/rewards that prepare us for a new Jupiter cycle.
The following time periods are somewhat approximate. I chose to begin with the 1920s since most who were born before that are very old or dead. I closed with the position 7 years from now. If you fall near the beginning or end of a period and are in doubt as to where your Jupiter is, please consult an ephemeris, astrologer or the many websites with free chart calculation service:
