Jupiter transits are almost everybody’s favorite in astrology. Whatever Jupiter touches natally, by transit or in relationships, it makes it easy and flowing. Human nature prefers ease to hardship, of course, so it’s no surprise that these are the trends students look forward to most. When Jupiter transits through a house in your natal chart, expect matters in that house to go your way, more or less. But don’t expect a miracle out of it. If other, more challenging transits or progressions are at work, Jupiter may lighten your load, but not get rid of it altogether.
With Jupiter, be careful with what you wish for. You are more likely to get what you want when it’s in power than at other times.
Jupiter’s transit to each house takes about a year. The exact period may vary depending on Jupiter’s speed and direction and the size of the natal house in question.
These transits are often strongest when Jupiter is approaching or on the house cusp (first degree of that house) or when it is conjunct a planet in that house. Transits to the angular houses and whatever house is emphasized in the native’s chart are also more noticeable.
