How Jupiter in Taurus 2023-2024 Impacts You
Jupiter moves to Taurus, an earth sign that grounds and centers. Jupiter in Taurus gives us the opportunity to do that in our lives, and what we build now can help us feel more grounded. We can become more concerned with stability and security, and we can strive to improve this, especially in areas that have been particularly chaotic lately.
We can work to improve our confidence levels, and want to feel we're in tune with what we value. We can improve self-respect, and find more self-worth. This benefits us in many ways, at the very least making us feel calmer and more in control, and it can help us pursue opportunities we'd normally talk ourselves out of because we didn't feel worthy.
Taurus is an abundant sign, so we can focus on bringing more abundant energy into our lives. We may give more attention to areas where we've been experiencing lack, and work to change this so we have more of whatever we need, and don't have to worry about it again for a long time.
Taurus is also a ruler of money and resources, so Jupiter in Taurus is fabulous for making more money and expanding access to resources. For some, this may mean embarking on a new professional path, for others, it may mean taking on new positions or pushing for your own promotions and raises; for some, it may mean starting up a side gig that can become profitable quickly; and for others, it may mean being smarter with your spending and investments.
On a macro level, there can be more attention paid to financial institutions, and there may be changes in some way that lead to expansion in some way.
And, since Taurus is such an earthy sign, we may be much more concerned with the Earth during this tour. Maybe now we finally make some progress with climate change!
On a personal level, you can experience any or all of this in the areas of life ruled by the house(s) Jupiter in Taurus tours in your natal chart.
How Jupiter in Taurus Differs From Jupiter in Aries
Taurus is quite different from Aries, as Aries is a strong fire and cardinal sign, which means it's always go-go-go. Meanwhile Taurus is the most grounded of the signs since it's both an earth sign and a fixed sign, and is very slow and steady.
Jupiter in Aries has been full of activity (and that'll last to the very end!). Taurus, on the other hand, wants us to slow down, take a beat, and reconnect with the moment. We can benefit from slowing down this way.
Special Periods During Jupiter in Taurus
Before Jupiter even enters Taurus, Mercury is going to be retrograde, appearing to move backward) for several weeks in Taurus (April 21st to May 14th 2023). This may give us a chance to work through any Taurus challenges we have to clear them out and make room for the opportunities and expansive energy of Jupiter in Taurus.
Try to take advantage of that before Jupiter in Taurus starts. Pay attention to what the Mercury retrograde is doing, and get working on it. If you can go into Jupiter in Taurus with less holding you back and keeping you down, you can soar much further much faster.
There will also be a Taurus new moon right after Jupiter enters Taurus on May 19th 2023, and this can help us get focused on the opportunities we want to pursue and what we're excited about. This new moon may usher us into Jupiter in Taurus quickly and with some beneficial developments, and we can set ourselves up for what we're going to expand and explore over the next year of our lives.
Uranus will be in Taurus the entire time Jupiter is in Taurus as well, and they conjunct (align) once on April 20th 2024 at 21 degrees Taurus. Jupiter linking up with Uranus is fabulous energy for sudden, unexpected opportunities and great windfalls. Bad luck can turn fast and we can take advantage of the sudden developments.
We can benefit when we're being true to ourselves, and willing to take the unconventional route with Uranus. We may be hesitant with this with the Taurus energy initially, but once we take those first steps, we can see how this works out for us and keep going with it.
This can play out in the areas of life ruled by the house in your natal chart where 21 degrees Taurus falls. If you have any natal planets or bodies at 21 degrees, whatever they rule may get the strongest impact.
Jupiter in Taurus Conjunct the Outer Planets in Your Natal Chart
The kids born in the last few years along with our super elders have Uranus in Taurus. This means Jupiter in Taurus aligns with your Uranus, the planet of rebellion, independence, innovation, and the masses.
If you have small children/babies with Uranus in Taurus, they may start developing very strong personalities that may seem different in some way. For those of you a lot older (hey cool grandparents!), you may decide to make a big change in your life, and can be more willing to step outside of your comfort zone and do something that has a broader impact.
Final Notes on Jupiter in Taurus
Jupiter in Taurus seems awesome after the crazy energy of March through May 2023, and we can welcome the slower, steadier energy. Combined with Uranus in Taurus, it's not TOO slow and steady, and does offer some room for change and growth.
Embrace abundance and improve confidence!
