Justin Bieber: Jupiter Returns Home

 

Justin Bieber welcomes home transiting Jupiter in 2018, bringing behind the scene, 12th house blessings to his very public life.   Jupiter is Christmas morning, an all-night rave and the winning lottery ticket all rolled up in one. The planetary archetype reminds me of a whole bowl of only green shamrock Lucky Charms or a big red balloon rising towards the sun and any other joyful excess you can imagine. Keep in mind, Jupiter is also the morning after hangover, the popped expectation and the over the moon letdown. Yet, we need Jupiter in our lives to imagine and create the philosophies that underpin higher education, the rule of law and spiritual journeys.

Jupiter’s gregarious planetary energy dived deep into the water sign of Scorpio in October 2017 and will gallop into its home fire sign of Sagittarius in November 2018. Bieber was born with Jupiter placed in the 12th house at 14° of Scorpio (inner ring of the above chart). Transiting Jupiter joined in union with Bieber’s natal Jupiter on December 19th (outer ring) and in 2018 will return two more times: June 10, 2018 in retrograde motion and August 9, 2018 in outgoing direct motion.

It takes Jupiter about 11.8 years to travel around the sun and this gas behemoth will spend about a year in each of the 12 zodiacal signs. Thus, a person experiences Jupiter’s return to their natal placement roughly every 12 years. Jupiter naturally calls Sagittarius home, reveling in the element of fire and the mutable mode. In a personal chart, Jupiter’s placement in a house will signify the area of life where a bit of luck, expansion or growth may occur. It’s the sunny side of the street that we cross over to in search of life’s meaning and belief systems. Lurking in the shadows lie grand schemes, empty promises and inflated dreams beyond our capabilities. Hard won wisdom balances Jupiter’s excess and best be acquired along the journey.

Bieber was born with Jupiter in the sign of Scorpio, coloring the usual buoyancy with a deep and passionate thirst for answers to the very questions that make life more meaningful: philosophical theories, educational journeys and spiritual exploration. Will-power aligns with faith and will rescue Bieber at critical moments, with Jupiter’s placement in the 12th house of hidden strengths and weakness. The theme of a hidden Jupiter is emphasized with the placement of Sagittarius within the 1st house – indicating a need to further uncover the archetype’s expression in his immediate physical surroundings and social expression. The planet Pluto’s placement upon the Ascendant angle, and it’s rulership of the chart emphasizes Scorpio traits that Bieber embodies: an intense physical presence and a focused social intelligence. A bit of Jupiter’s sunny optimism and resilient faith will lighten Pluto’s heavy load.

Over the course of a lifetime, a person who lives to age 84 will experience 7 Jupiter returns. At each turn of Jupiter’s wheel, find ways to reintegrate personal belief systems, philosophies and faith within the larger community. Bieber experienced his first Jupiter return at age 11 in 2006. By October 2008, he had a record deal and was well on his way creating the journey that a gifted Sun in Pisces, Moon in heart throb Libra and disciplined Scorpio Ascendant soul might well create.

Now as Bieber approaches his 24th birthday, his 2nd Jupiter rewind asks him to reenter into the social compact. As he answers these questions, Bieber will also be experiencing transiting Jupiter in Scorpio making a trine to his natal Venus in Pisces. Luck in love (Selena, that’s you babe!) and money is an opportunity too good to pass up. Finally throughout 2018, transiting Neptune in Pisces will trine natal Jupiter suggesting that creativity will flow easily now: beats and lyrics should form into song and songs into an album with little difficulty.

With Jupiter’s return it is wise to stay on the sunny side of life while avoiding empty words, grandiose actions and false appearances. Count your blessings, renew your faith and share what wealth and abundance you have with those you love.

Good advice for Justin Bieber and you.

 

Scorpio Sun: The Power of Desire

pablo-scorpion-waters

For people born under a Scorpio Sun (October 23 through November 21), their solar energy flows as currents of deep desire. Personal transformation is their birthright and many will spend a lifetime searching for it. The most publically famous will create success in their chosen field or sphere of influence, often overcoming personal crisis. Much like a phoenix rising from the ashes of despair, all Scorpios have the power to transform into a truer version of their authentic self. The less fortunate will flex their Scorpion tails in vengeful, sometimes violent arcs, wounding those around them until the final thrust stings themselves.

Scorpios dive deep and refresh themselves through the element of water, while displaying a fixed, often intense character. They are unusually passionate about something and will with laser like precision gather the resources needed to achieve their goals. Pluto, the god of the underworld, is this sign’s planetary ruler. Scorpions are adept at penetrating Pluto’s hidden realm to return with secret treasures brought forth to share under their Sun’s light.

Many Scorpios unconsciously gravitate towards the deeper mysteries of birth, sex, death and taxes, seeking careers in medicine, psychiatry, social work, or politics. The Scorpio police detective will operate undercover to foil a drug deal, while the Scorpio scientist may spend a lifetime discovering a cure for cancer. The soul standing in the shadow of their Scorpion Sun may be the crime boss living around the corner or the sex worker pursuing a college degree. Often the Scorpion native simply has an air of the unknowable, leaving you to ponder over the intense jealousy uncovered during a casual lunch with your Scorpion lover. Or a best pal born in early November may surprise you with a sarcastic comment that cuts to the truth of the matter.

The Plutonian actor Mathew McConaughey (Nov 4, 1969) won an Oscar for Best Actor in 2013 for his passionate, disciplined performance in the movie Dallas Buyers Club. Playing Ron Woodroof, McConaughey transformed himself physically into the rodeo rider suddenly diagnosed with AIDS, losing 22 pounds for the role. With brilliant artistry, McConaughey convey Woodroof’s struggle to obtain treatment along with the character’s renewed sense of human dignity even as death neared. This role capped McConaughey’s own Scorpion transformation from playing unremarkable romantic comedy characters to portraying complicated dramatic personas. Perhaps McConaughey powerful Scorpion Sun’s desire is best left in his own words: “I don’t want to revolve. I want to evolve. As a man, as a human, as a father, as a lover.”
