Jupiter in Aquarius Transit 2021

Jupiter is finally moving out of the sidereal sign of Capricorn and into Aquarius on April 5, 2021 at 11:54am PDT!

This is great news for Jupiter since Jupiter is moving out of its least comfortable zodiac sign. Capricorn, which is the sign associated most with climbing the corporate ladder, hard work for gains, Karma and the boardroom. Definitely not Jupiter's happy dharma place!

Jupiter has not visited sidereal Aquarius since May - July, 2009 and December 2009 - May 2010. Think back to these dates and recall if anything shifted for you during these time periods.

Note: My western astrology friends who are reading this, please keep in mind Vedic sidereal calculations are different than Western tropical!

Let's review the indications of Jupiter before we move on to the by rising sign forecast of Jupiter in Aquarius.

  • Dharma

  • Knowledge

  • Wisdom

  • Spirituality

  • Abundance/wealth

  • Philosophy

  • Law and Justice

  • Body Fat

Jupiter (Brihaspati) from my book: Vedic Astrology for Beginners

"Jupiter is the largest of the planets next to the Sun. For context, Jupiter is almost four times larger in circumference than Earth, Venus, Mercury, and Mars combined! The size of Jupiter is significant since, as the advisor, Jupiter represents expansion, supporting the Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra description of Jupiter as having a big body. Under the right condition in the birth chart, the expansive nature of Jupiter and its rulership of body fat can create someone with a more kapha-like (slow, heavy) constitution. If Jupiter is weak, a person may have difficulty gaining weight. Jupiter is also the only graha (planet) that carries the element of ether."

Jupiter remains in Aquarius from April 5 - September 14, 2021 and November 20, 2021 - April 12, 2022.

Jupiter will retrograde back into Capricorn to do some last minute work with Saturn from September 15 - November 19, 2021.

Jupiter in Aquarius is in a much more humanitarian aligned sign for the next year. Jupiter will bring expansion and wisdom while helping us work toward the betterment of society and the collective vs. individual accomplishments. Jupiter can bring much needed justice, fairness and equality for groups that are under-served across the globe during this year long transit.
