It comes as no surprise that Jupiter, the largest of all the planets, is the planet that encourages growth and good fortune. It expands anything it touches. So when Jupiter enters the progressive and innovative sign of Aquarius, our minds are triggered and our eyes are open wide! Aquarius is already a broad-minded sign, and Jupiter's presence here allows us all to access ideas and solutions that, at other times, may seem too big or too daunting.
Jupiter's transit though Aquarius gives us the opportunity to look beyond the confines of our individual lives and personal concerns to see the world as a whole. It encourages us to think beyond ourselves and to give of ourselves, realizing that we are each a small part of a great community, and every one of us has an important role to play.

When Jupiter is in Aquarius
Aquarius is a very idealistic sign. It has a knack for seeing what's wrong with the world, then coming up with unique and innovative ways to improve things. While Jupiter is moving through Aquarius, we are all gifted with this Aquarian ability to think and do things differently, and create a more ideal future. Thanks to the expanding nature of Jupiter, it's easier to step outside of ourselves during this time to consider the needs of others in our communities, countries, and the world at large.
Jupiter in Aquarius makes us optimistic for the future. Regardless of how things look in the present moment, we know we have the ideas and solutions that will make for a better tomorrow. Instead of seeing limits we see opportunities. Instead of seeing differences we see similarities.
During Jupiter's transit through Aquarius, we'll find it easier to connect with other people who have the same visions as we do, so we can join forces to instigate the changes that need to be made. Jupiter is a planet that prizes learning, making this a time that we can learn a great deal from others. We want to share our own ideas with others, but we can gain even more knowledge by listening to the unique thoughts and experiences of those around us.
There is, however, a potential for philosophical extremism during this transit, if the radical tendencies of Aquarius are not tempered with compassion and respect for others' opinions. Both Jupiter and Aquarius have a strong need to be right, and can be intolerant of differing viewpoints. We must remember that this is a time to look further than our individual preferences and privileges, and realize that we each need to be committed to the survival and well-being of the one group we ALL belong to: humanity.
Jupiter Retrograde in Aquarius
When wise Jupiter turns retrograde each year, the growth that is normally directed outward is turned inward. Things that were moving along nicely in our everyday lives tend to slow down or stop, forcing us to consider different ways of doing things and new ways around our problems.
When Jupiter is retrograde in Aquarius, the big changes we want to make come up for review. We may ask ourselves questions like: Are my plans even possible? Do the changes I want to make really benefit others or only myself? Is my thinking too narrow-minded? When Jupiter is direct, it's easy to just keep trucking forward and neglect the challenges that could end up standing in our way. Jupiter Retrograde, however, gives us the chance to ask these tough questions so that we can expand on our plans to include solutions or renovations to the way we've been thinking, helping to set us up for better success.
If you were born with Jupiter in Aquarius
With your Jupiter in Aquarius, you WILL do things your own way! You prize your freedom to do, think, and be however wish, and enjoy the fact that you tend to go against the grain. You're a creative person who stands out as an innovator with an intelligent mind and a persuasive way of communicating. You are not confined by the box that many others choose to live in -- in fact, you have a hard time even believing the box exists! If you are not content with the way things are, you have no problem dreaming up and pushing for changes that will bring greater happiness to yourself and others.
While your independence matters to you, you realize there's power in numbers, and likely have a large network of friends and groups you are affiliated with. The more like-minded people you are aligned with, the more easily you can put your ideas into motion and turn them into real-life experiences. You're also probably a bit of a whiz, adopting the latest and greatest technology to communicate your message as far as possible and to as many people as you can.
Jupiter in Aquarius makes you a big-picture thinker. You're an ideas person who is less concerned with details and small matters and more focused on big changes and global concerns. No one would be surprised to see you at a protest rally, fighting for the rights of others who don't have the means to speak for themselves. If one suffers, we all suffer -- but not on your watch! As a human, you see it as your responsibility to stand up for the rest of humanity and make every person's voice heard.
