Lets take a look at the Jupiter Ingress Chart:
Expect the Virgos in your life to be more determined than usual.
Mars recently entered the sign of Leo on August 8th providing the energy level needed behind the scenes. He joins an Retrograde Venus in Leo still in the 1st house. Venus is within 5 degrees of the ASC and makes a trine to Uranus in Aries creating a very erratic Rx Venus in Leo physical appearance. Venus is a little unsure of herself and is running back to the Sun in Leo and the Moon in Cancer in the 11th house. Its all about the group, organizations, family and her partner. The Sun and Moon are much stronger in these natural placements by sign. The Cancer Moon makes a trine with Neptune In Pisces in the 7th house of partnership and a loose trine with Brooding Saturn in Scorpio in the 4th house of home and family.
This Trine energy in Water gives us the vision to Imagine (Neptune) Dreams (Moon) with a(Saturn) Structure. Who can blame Rx Venus in Leo for wanting to go back to a nostalgic past time period. Saturn in Scorpio is making her a little bitter. So it feels comforting and she dreams of those Cancer Moon times of the past.
Venus currently Retrograde does not want to meet with Jupiter in Virgo without her partner, family and friends for support. The Leo Sun moves along confidently regardless of the sentiment of the Cancer Moon group or a hesitant Rx Venus in Leo. The Leo Sun is having none of this and moves forward to implement those dreams into actions and goals.
The ingress chart has no air and with the Sun and Mars in Leo in the 12th house, much of that emotional energy may be directed inward. Mercury is strongly placed in the 1st house conjunct Jupiter in Virgo opposing a Pisces Neptune Haze. Jupiter with Mercury makes a loose trine to Pluto in Capricorn while Pluto opposes the Cancer Moon.
So in my Virgo mind this made me think of a Tea Kettle; it sits on the stove looking very pretty and old fashioned. We add water, apply heat, and once the water reaches the precise temperature the Tea Kettle will make a loud irritating sound that will continue until the heat is turned down. That sounds tells us it is time to poor the hot water into the Tea Cup. It is very practical and you cannot ignore the Tea Kettle, which is what this Jupiter in Virgo cycle will be like. All of the issues that we dealt with or failed to fix after the Saturn In Virgo transit will get some much needed help. Capricorn Pluto with Jupiter Virgo is big on organizational projects and it will not leave a single stone unturned during this transit. We may dream of the good old days, but many of the systems in place we don't think about are about to change. This in turn will make each and every one of us adjust the daily activities of our life.
The Tea Kettle is now boiling! Where is the Tea Kettle in your chart?
Here are a few tiny Examples of regular daily activities (keep in mind Uranus in Aries is about technology moving faster and Jupiter and Mercury in Virgo will apply that technology where it is needed):
- Perhaps your old bus route has been cancelled and you no longer see your favorite bus driver which forces you to hire Uber. The Uber service picks you up at your doorstep, has an energy efficient car that allows you to use a Car Pool lane, and takes an hour off of your driving time as it transports you through a new neighborhood. Your new car pool friends tells you about a restaurant that is family owned, farm to table fresh, and uses suppliers from a local farming co-op. This action leads to you adapting a healthier diet and a less stressful commute.
- Your old cell phone is no longer offering an upgrade and you are forced to purchase a new phone loaded with technological marvels. The phone can be hands free, offer internet service, GPS, and an organizational to do list. It replaces your large bulky home computer and a year from now you won't even know how you lived without your new phone.
- Your favorite store closes and only offers products online. In the case of the store, it may be faster to ship the product directly from a warehouse. The online experience has better descriptions of the products you purchase and video. This will save gas and time, the prices are lower and you can conveniently shop anytime you want.
Do you kind of see how this will work? It is these little organizational things we don't think about that we will be forced to use. Except with Jupiter it will be all 3 examples at the same time and we won't have a choice.
To make a long story short:
Jupiter in Virgo will change all the details at one time, while helping to preserve some of the Cancer Moon Nostalgia and adding a touch of Rx Venus in Leo Glamour. Virgo will try to please everyone while Capricorn Pluto, holds tightly to old organizations, and battles with The Leo Sun's Ego, fueled by Mars in Leo both in the 12th house exhibiting a passive aggressive need to be the boss. Saturn in Scorpio quietly disapproves and forces some of the rules to remain. Uranus in Aries in the 9th house teaches us about new technology quickly and Jupiter with Mercury in Virgo will insist that we now implement the organizational details on a grand scale.
That is the Leo energy wrapped with a determined Virgo. Welcome to Jupiter in Virgo !
