Jupiter in Libra: Culture and You [Harper's Bazaar]
Jupiter entered Libra in September, though the planet of luck just made a grand entrance on October 1 flanked by the Sun and Moon, initiating his year long stay in the sign of 'Love'. Jupiter spends one year in each sign and takes 12 years to go around the zodiac.
If you happen to be a Libra, this will be your lucky year! Depending on your astrological sign, Jupiter in Libra will appear in a different area of your chart and will bring luck and opportunity to a different area of your life.
Libra is the Sign that presides over love and romance and all ideas of partnering. Jupiter is the planet that rules the concept of expansion so as you can imagine, with Jupiter in Libra, we will all see a greater focus on relationships, love, and romance in your personal lives as well as in the media
The two planets that measure trends are Jupiter and Neptune and together they give me an idea of what will be the next trend to pop, the next color, style or new culture craze. So let's have a look at what happened when Neptune and Jupiter met for a date in Libra in the years 1945 – 1946. This power duo of planets in the sign of love caused an explosion of couple's to hit the media and Hollywood erupted with images and iconic movie posters that all featured famous twosomes.
Neptune was in Libra from 1942 – 1957 so the trend pervaded longer though we could see that the peak was when Jupiter gave an extra boost 1945-46. Now we only have Jupiter in Libra alone (without Neptune), so here is a wrap up of where we were and what is to come:
