When Jupiter transits the Eighth House the desire for growth and expansion influences how you use your power and others’ resources. Jupiter can improve many hidden areas as it moves through this house, including joint finances, loans and taxes, your psychological state and deeper emotions, how secure you feel deep in your soul, and how you deal with sexuality, death, and the occult.
Jupiter in the 8th house can sometimes indicate that you’ll receive an inheritance or windfall, but it’s wise not to expect it. Jupiter will pass through this house every 12 years, and you won’t experience it the same way each time. You might come into some money now, but it’s not usually likely. However, you are likely to benefit in some way from other people’s resources.
If you’re in a relationship, now is a good time to pool your resources, or perhaps go into business. It’s also a good time to get a loan, unless there are other transits that mitigate against it. Generally though, Jupiter expands others’ resources in relation to your need, so you should find them more willing to help you out in some way. It might not necessarily be financial, but it can’t hurt to ask.
You may also expand your sex life in some way, and become more sexually adventurous. You are more willing to share and the usual power games that can cause problems in relationships will fall away, leaving you to feel more positive and willing to work together to create a relationship that benefits you both without the need for manipulation or guilt trips. Intimacy comes more easily to you now.
This transit can also represent a time when you become more interested in the occult, or expand your existing studies. The occult just means something that is hidden, it’s not necessarily something dark and mysterious. You may experience a spiritual or religious regeneration which encourages you to find out more about the mysteries of life, death and rebirth. Now is a great time to study occult and mystical literature, especially if you’ve been having difficulties in other areas of your life. Jupiter in this house can begin the healing process.
Possibilities with Jupiter transiting the 8th:
- Sharing resources with others
- Taking out a loan
- Receiving a tax rebate or financial settlement
- Planning your financial future
- Increased intimacy in relationships
- Spiritual healing and contentment
Watch out for:
- Borrowing more than you can afford to pay back
- Sexually transmitted diseases
The changes you experience now might not be obvious because they’re hidden, but this can be a time of powerful and positive change in your life. You’ll be able to gain a greater understanding of the psychological patterns that work in your life and begin the process of transformation. Any changes you make now will make your life more rewarding and expansive for the future.
