One of the first Astrological events for 2009 is the Aquarius ingress of Jupiter. Jupiter spends about 12 months in each sign and takes twelve years to orbit the Sun. Jupiter’s dutiful role in Capricorn has been the picture of correctness over the last twelve months. At times Jupiter has been conscientious, distrustful and a hypocritical in Capricorn. Tomorrow Jupiter gets some air!
Looking For Space
If you are lucky enough to be 12 years old or multiples of that age expect your Jupiter Return and a year of abundance in 2009. If you were born in the following years there will be times when things finally work out for the better.

Jupiter is a big risk taker and freedom – loving in Aquarius
Jupiter’s move into Aquarius will initially be noticed on subtle levels this week. The theme of the new year will incorporate “hopefulness” – the “joy of hope” – “comradeship” – “humanitarianism” and “social justice“.
Aquarius is an air sign and that means Jupiter will be socially orientated and intellectually driven. To understand Jupiter in Aquarius perhaps you can reflect on your own social involvements during the years 1997 – 1985 and 1973?
In 1973 I was propelled into a new school after returning to our home state of Perth. There seemed to be a very special group of guys and girls at that school. All groups of friends are “special” during teenage years however in 1973 I discovered that I finally belonged to that group.
In 1985 I was lucky enough to meet a group of people in Adelaide where I learned much about human nature. I found myself experiencing life on the perimeter of a darker – socially driven sub culture in society. I was amazed at people who were mainstream businessmen as well as being a part of the darker sub culture. I couldn’t believe what people were getting away with. I was also touched by an amazing collaboration of characters all coming together in a seemingly joyous and close knit community.
In 1997 I was lucky enough to have a wide ranging group of friends and comrades; some of whom I worked and surfed with. 1997 was the year I became involved in humanitarian endeavors such as LifeLine – suicide telephone line. I also joined different training groups in Psychology, Astrology, Group facilitation and others 9th house areas of higher learning. It was a joyous time – revelling amongst the different groups.
When Jupiter goes into Aquarius in my case, it means the ninth house becomes activated. This means having new experiences and developing new perspectives in life. In each of the Jupiter years above I can say that some aspects of my experiences were extremely difficult however the increased sense of freedom and hope were resounding in my life .
Jupiter is the biggest planet around and when in Aquarius he is making more room, taking more risks and becoming more socially orientated. Aquarius is the sign for social reform.
Astrologer Rob Hand once stated “that Aquarius is a reformative sign.” Although Aquarius is also Saturn ruled like the very traditional sign of Capricorn, Saturn ruling over Aquarius calls for some of those traditions to change. Aquarius is therefore a sign in astrology where inventiveness, reformativeness, changing of the status quo, social justice, community welfare and humanitarianism resides.
Jupiter in Aquarius is the Missing Link
Twelve months is not a very long time in scheme of life. Perhaps as the Jupiter piece fits into the greater scheme of our “puzzle” we can hopefully develop new individual perspectives – in line with the changing face of human nature.
Jupiter in Aquarius brings optimism and hope to the risks we need to take in order to make these reforms in our lives.
