Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system which makes Jupiter the most effective and superlative among all. Jupiter is called Guru (गुरु) or Bruhaspati (बृहस्पती) in Indian astology. The Indian vedik culture and spiritual ideologies have treated Guru like The God. The very famous shlok “|| गुरुर्ब्रह्मा, गुरुर्विष्णू, गुरुर्देवो महेश्वरः, गुरु साक्षात परब्रह्म, तस्मे श्री गुरवे नमः || brings out this essence of Indian philosophy. Jupiter is the auspicious planet very naturally. Therefore, it is quite important to consider the Gochar (गोचर) movement of Jupiter for the good things in one’s life.
Jupiter is the protector, thereby Jupiter always protects those houses and the owner of the houses where Jupiter focuses his vision. If there are any obstacle in one’s life then the Jupiter will act as the saviour to take you out of the difficult situation.
As Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system, Jupiter is supposed to be responsible for growth and expansion. Hence when Jupiter changes the position after every 11 months, it is important to assess Jupiter’s impact from the family and children, career, profession, business etc. It has been seen that during the Jupiter mahadash (गुरु महादशा) or antardasha (अंतर्दशा) people gain weight or it helps to cure from elephantiasis, cancer (unnatural growth of muscles) etc.
Jupiter takes around 12 years to move around the entire zodiac. On October 11th, Jupiter is going to enter the Scorpio, the sign of his friend Mars. As Jupiter represents expansion, he is a teacher, the herald of knowledge and this transit can be multi-faceted in nature. Hence Jupiter transits are transformational.
Jupiter enters Scorpio on 11th October 2018 and will move at a very fast pace and enter Sagittarius by end of March 2019 before retrograding back to Scorpio after which it again turns direct. Jupiter will continue to be in Scorpio through mid-2019, before moving to Sagittarius in the first week of November 2019.
