From the beginning, astrologers have observed the movements of the traditional outer planets, Jupiter and Saturn, to base their global predictions. This article will cover some of the main themes of how 2017 may manifest based on Jupiter and Saturn’s location in the sky. Jupiter shows, from what sign it is in, where people will be expressing their morals, beliefs and opinions. Jupiter also indicates the direction that higher education, media, news, publishing, travel and foreign relations will take. Saturn’s placement in the heavens reveals where there will be the most concern, responsibility, restriction and fear. It builds up careers, solid structures and upholds tradition. In 2017 Jupiter and Saturn will form a cooperative aspect which may produce to some spectacular alliances with international flair.
Jupiter in Libra
Jupiter entered the sign of Libra on September 9, 2016 and will stay there until October 10, 2017. Jupiter has a 12 year cycle so the last time Jupiter was in Libra was from September 24, 2004 – October 25, 2005 and every 12 years before that. There may be some related or similar events dealing with Jupiter’s effects during these dates when Jupiter was in Libra.
Jupiter in the air sign of Libra will increase communications, publishing, social media activity and international cooperation. Libra is ruled by the planet Venus which symbolizes love, beauty, art, refinement, luxury, music and viewing the world from another person’s perspective. Librans are known for being charming, popular and indecisive. Libra, represented by a scale, is concerned with fairness, justice and equality.
In 2017 we will probably be asked to fill out more surveys, polls and other attempts to find a general consensus on various topics. There may also be more petitions to enforce a balance on decisions that may seem unfair.
Libra is also concerned with relationships, marriage, competitions, and any one on one interaction. This is an auspicious year to get married and form an alliance, business or personal. If you are working on a big project this year, buddying up with someone may bring more luck and positive results than expected.
Equality in relationships will also be a huge concern. Gay marriage, domestic abuse, stalking, bullying, rape, may be some subjects which garner more attention this year. Jupiter in Libra is concerned with the legal ramifications of relationships. What is the right way for people to treat each other? Also what is the just punishment of any transgressions in relating to one another? Jupiter emphasizes the religious, morality and right way to judge these situations. We may have many discussions and publications centering on these issues in 2017.
Libra is symbolized by the scales of justice. Legal cases and court battles may also grow in interest in 2017 as people weigh in with their opinions of a particular case. There may also be an inflated interest in how our justice system is functioning in general. Through the use of publishing, large numbers of people may form an opinion concerning what is right or wrong with a particular case. Documentaries like A Murder in the Park, Making a Murderer, and 13th, designed to garner public support may become more important in 2017. The cause, effect and proposed solutions to fixing the criminal justice system in America appears to be a growing concern, symbolized by Jupiter in Libra.
On a positive side, Jupiter in Libra may increase art, music and entertainment. 2017 may be an outstanding year for remarkable movies, music, and theater. There may be more funding for art programs, shows, fairs, etc. There may be more success and financial increase in artistic endeavors.
In 1957 when Jupiter was in Libra and Saturn was in Sagittarius, John Lennon began to collaborate with Paul McCartney for the first time and went on to create the Beatles. So this year may be one of embarking on a new creative partnership which may become successful in the years to come.
The theater was the scene of a political protest in November 2017 when Vice President-elect Mike Pence was given a prepared speech by one of the actors after the show.
On a personal level, Jupiter may not be as wonderful as hoped for in the sign of Libra. Jupiter does not hold any dignities in this cardinal, air sign so it can produce results which are negative as well as positive. Jupiter the great benefic, jovial, wise and expansive can be miraculous or disastrous depending on exactly what it is becoming larger than life. Jupiter can increase your optimism, outlook, finances, friends and good fortune but Jupiter can also expand your waistline, commitments, choices, and cause one to feel so much ease in a particular area of life that it can lead to becoming lackadaisical. This is especially so in the sign of Libra which already tends to have a lazy streak due to its ruler Venus wanting to enjoy the finer things. In this way, Jupiter’s influence can be extravagant, wasteful, indulgent and could become negligent. Jupiter makes you feel good about things and when we feel content, we don’t necessarily want to change or build upon matters – even when we should.
Jupiter in Libra leads to indecisiveness on ideas regarding judicial affairs, relationships, morals, and diplomatic matters. Jupiter in Libra’s sign can lead to people forming collaborations based on shared philosophies, beliefs, and opinions but that are not built to last. Libra a cardinal air sign shows active opinions which want to be pushed out into the world forcefully. This can lead to seemingly arrogant, combative discussions which could become overwhelming at times. Jupiter in a cardinal air sign can ‘talk the talk’ and will do so in large quantities. However, the test is if it can also ‘walk the walk’ which is where Saturn is needed. Jupiter in Libra may not be as wonderful as may be expected as a benefic in another benefic’s sign. It is interesting to note that in Vedic astrology, Venus is Jupiter’s enemy.
Jupiter works best in mutable, flexible signs which allows for beliefs and opinions to change and adapt. Jupiter is at home in a fire sign (Sagittarius) which is known for its honesty and inspiring others with their beliefs. Jupiter is also at home in the water sign (Pisces) being generous and expanding one’s compassion for others. Jupiter in a cardinal, air sign is actively pushing beliefs and opinions which is not the best way for Jupiter to operate, hence its peregrine status. Jupiter in Libra can lead to non-stop, escalating debates. The cardinal air sign of Libra is expanding the non-stop fighting for what is right and Jupiter can exaggerate the contest or combativeness far more than it should be. This may lead to the results of Jupiter in Libra to not being as wonderful as may be hoped. The rules of the game may be discarded because of people’s beliefs taking precedence. This can lead to moralistic superiority with regards to the common laws or rules of society and especially in regards to marriage, public interactions and competitions.
In relationships, it could lead to doing too much and being too easy on others who are not holding up their end of the bargain. Expectations based on spiritual, political or other belief systems may be too high and not have enough practical considerations to keep it together. Partnerships may try to do too much, too soon and end up with a lot of wasted time, effort and resources.
In general, Jupiter in Libra is an auspicious year for marriages, mergers, competitions, court proceedings, finding a new doctor/counselor, and dealings with the public. Increasing your one on one interactions, consultations, and activities may benefit your life in many ways. As always with Jupiter, keeping your feet on the ground and being realistic what can be accomplished in a certain amount of time with others will allow you to enjoy a wonderful year, full of progress and success with a partner.
Saturn in Sagittarius
Saturn entered the sign of Sagittarius on December 23, 2014 and will remain there until December 19, 2017. Saturn has a 29 year cycle so the last time Saturn was in Sagittarius was from November 16, 1985 – November 12, 1988 and every 29 years before that. There may be some related or similar events dealing with Saturn’s effects during these dates in Sagittarius.
Saturn is the planet that reminds us that we have work to do. Saturn’s placement indicates where you must shoulder responsibility, make sacrifices, suffer, be restricted or denied something. Saturn’s placement also signifies where you feel pressure, concerns, worry, and fears. It designates where, if you apply yourself and accept the challenges, you may build a solid career and elevate your status in the world.
Since Saturn first began its sojourn in Sagittarius on December 23, 2014, there has been an increase of concern for international travel, religious ideologies, internet activities, and higher education. Many have been dealing with extra restrictions, delays, fears, suffering and burdens in these areas. These have been some of the main topics in the recent U.S. election. The current president’s mantra while running for office was to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. This notion of creating a more solid demarcation between two countries epitomizes Saturn in Sagittarius. Another interesting fact is Donald Trump first ran for president in Saturn’s previous trip through Sagittarius. In 1987 Trump gave his first campaign speech in New Hampshire. He talked about what he would do as president but then declined to run. He repeated some of the exact same talking points in his 1987 campaign that he would use 29 years later when he ran for president again and won.
There may be a push for stricter control on the internet in 2017. Facebook and other social media platforms came under fire recently by President Obama voiced his unease about being, “in an age where there’s so much active misinformation and its packaged very well and it looks the same when you see it on a Facebook page or you turn on your television.” (time.com) He proclaimed that these fraudulent news stories were a threat to democracy. Internet hoaxes, biased news reporting, and computer hacking appears to be some troubles to contend with in 2017. There may also be stricter policies regarding international travel as well.
Saturn in Sagittarius adds gravitas to people’s beliefs and the feeling that rules/laws need to be incorporated in the areas of religion, travel and publishing. There is a general concern that these areas are places to be feared as they are not in control as Saturn would like them to be. This may result in more restrictions and clearer boundaries being set while Saturn is in Sagittarius. This is shown by groups like ISIL and how international governments struggle to make policies which rely on separating moderate Muslims from extremist threats.
Saturn in Sagittarius is peregrine. Saturn builds walls and separates the wheat from the chaff. However this is an exercise in futility in a mutable fire sign of beliefs which can change at a moment’s notice. Cases of young people being converted to join ISIL via the internet have become a problem of Saturn in Sagittarius.
On a positive side, Saturn in Sagittarius may be successful ones to pursue business and career goals in travel, higher education and media. Some people may have to travel more to build their career or business. Others may develop their social status on the internet and/or publishing books, videos, etc. There may be more desire to obtain higher education in order to boost one’s career. All of these ambitions will require discipline and determination to succeed in the long run.
Wherever Saturn is, there is work to do and sacrifices to be made. With Saturn, you are asked to put your present pain aside in order to achieve long-term goals. If you choose to take the easy way out, you may pay for it later on. However, if you embrace the extra work, hardships, and restrictions it may lay the groundwork towards reaching the height of success in the future.
Jupiter sextile Saturn
The silver lining this year, as opposed to last year, is that Jupiter forms a positive aspect to Saturn. Jupiter at 21°Libra11’ will sextile Saturn at 21°Sagittarius11 on August 27, 2017. This aspect between Saturn and Jupiter is strengthened by the reception between them. Saturn in Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter and Jupiter in Libra is the sign of Saturn’s exaltation. This positive aspect and reception suggests that any collaboration begun around this time has the potential to become a great success.
Jupiter and Saturn working together allows for caution with optimism, foresight with enthusiasm and good organization with expansion. This aspect could herald the start of a very successful judicial, international, artistic, and/or publishing venture. Around this time, international organizations like the U.N. may implement a noteworthy commitment, group or policy. The United Nations officially came into existence on October 24, 1945 when Jupiter was in Libra.
The end of August 2017 is a favorable time to get married, begin a company, website, or start any new endeavor with a partner which can grow and prosper. Jupiter is the “to love and cherish” part of a marriage vow while Saturn is the “until death do us part.” A truly successful venture requires both Jupiter and Saturn and 2017 they will both be at the altar.
