Jupiter in Scorpio – Seeing is Believing & the Ecstasy of Transformation
(Oct 10, 2017 to Nov 11, 2018)
(Published in the September 2017 edition of the Career Astrologer – OPA)
Jupiter in Scorpio is a powerful force that combines expansion with depth, potentially catapulting us to greater dimensions of growth on all levels, material or spiritual. Yet, to access the promise of wealth, increase, and spiritual ecstasy, Jupiter in Scorpio imposes a challenge: accept the naked, and, often inconvenient, Truth. Scorpio brings doubt to Jupiter’s faith and optimism. Seeing is believing for Jupiter in Scorpio, there is no space for fanciful wishful thinking or blind beliefs. We can expect experiences of disillusionment and deflation of hopes initially, but only for the purpose of eventually creating and seizing incredible opportunities.
Compulsion for Growth – the Church of Mega Success
Nothing stands in the way of Jupiter in Scorpio’s need for MORE, in depth and heights.
Will power, determination, and courage to face faceless enemies can create the most incredible
breakthroughs. Cravings are deep, we seek the Truth which can be the bitter pill of ecstasy.
Jupiter in Scorpio brings immense power to those who dare cross boundaries and reinvent themselves:

- Britney Spears (greatly successful singer)
- Elvis Presley (legendary singer)

Appetite for Destruction – The Dark Alleys to Freedom
The power of destruction is tremendous with Jupiter in Scorpio. We must flirt with the magic of Death to access the freedom of rebirth. People born with Jupiter in Scorpio are usually tremendously resourceful, and know from experience that in order to create breakthroughs, they may have to experience death and destruction. This may touch them directly through the death of closed ones. They learn to find their ways through the intense emotions and turn crises into opportunities.

Conspiracy Theories – in search for the True Truth
Trust is a tall order for Jupiter in Scorpio; no stone is left unturned to dig yet deeper in search for what has been concealed and covered under the surface. Jupiter in Scorpio dethrones the false prophets, and we can experience disillusionment with our teachers, mentors, and gurus when they are revealed in less flattering light – the shadows become exposed. People born with this configuration often do not trust conventional sources and will become detectives in their domains, uncovering quite often a Truth that is inconvenient, unpopular. Notwithstanding, the loss of trust can lead to deep psychic scars and underlying anxiety. Paranoia mixes with revelation, delusion with prophecy.

Dark and Controversial Prophets – Bad and Banned!
No taboo stands in the path to power or knowledge, even if crossing the line means no return… no return. In search for esoteric Truth, Jupiter in Scorpio individuals may flirt with evil forces and end up consumed by the darkness. There is an illusion to be able “to take it,” to be able to control these forces, but therein lies the trap: becoming possessed without being aware of it.
