image: The Universal Four Habits
Jupiter is about expansion, optimism, long distance travel, spirituality, generosity, enthusiasm, luck, higher education, beliefs, and freedom, to name a few things.
Jupiter moved into Virgo 8/11/15 for his year long trek through the sign of Virgo; meticulous, clean, discerning, attentive to detail, practical, critical thinking, naturalist, beauty appreciating, health and nutrition oriented, idealistic, dexterous, quick witted.
What does this mean? If you have Jupiter in Virgo, like I do you may already be interested in health, botanicals, natural healing modalities, and nutrition AND get a Jupiter return this year. This happens about every 11-12 years. More on Jupiter Returns here. Want to find your Jupiter? Get your natal chart or look here.
Yesterday I spent the day contemplating the shift from Jupiter in Leo to Jupiter in Virgo and my impending Jupiter return. I ended up feeling overwhelmed with possibility (Jupiter) and details (Virgo).
Today I woke up, feeling a little stiff and it occurred to me in a neat little phrase, refinement of habits. Is this the Jupiter in Virgo that I was looking for? The opportunity (Jupiter) to refine my day to day habits, tasks and chores (Virgo).
My list started something like this:
- stretch at least a little each day
- renew commitment to flossing
- take vitamins and supplements as directed
- observe a bedtime
- eat properly (more about that later)
- laugh (jupiter) daily (Virgo)
- make regular dates with my foam roller
Going along through my day I found that other people now had new motivation and are exercising and taking their vitamins as well as reviewing their personal habits and they were happy!!
The day progressed and I found myself with a huge amount of work to do, measuring and weighing Chinese botanicals. Abundance (Jupiter) work (Virgo). And I was happy about it (Jupiter in Virgo?)
What healthy habits would you like to have?
