By Kshitij Sharma, September 17, 2018

Jupiter will be in Scorpio (Vrishchik) Rashi from October 12th 2018. It would enter the friendly sign of Scorpio, ruled by Venus during evening hours of October 12th for a horoscope cast for Bangalore, India. Jupiter will be out of Scorpio to enter Sagittarius on 5th of November 2019.

Important Planetary Influences on Jupiter


Guru asta (combustion) begins on November 12, 2018 and ends on December 10, 2018.


Jupiter will rush through the sign of Scorpio and will briefly enter Sagittarius on March 29th 2019. It becomes retrograde on April 10th, 2019, while being in Sagittarius. Jupiter will reenter Scorpio on April 23rd and will remain in Gandanta Sandhi for an extended period. Jupiter will become direct on August 11th, 2019.

Drishti on Jupiter

There is Guru-Chaandaala yoga during this period as Rahu and Jupiter will be mutual drishti.  Jupiter will have its drishti/aspect on Meena (Pisces), Vrishabha (Taurus) and Karka (Cancer) rashis.

Transit Effect on Various Rashis

Guru gives auspicious results transiting through these houses from Ascendant or Moon – 2nd House, 5th House, 7th House, 9th House and 11th House. For the rest of the houses, the overall effect is adverse, i.e. adverse effect will be felt if Jupiter is transiting through the janma rashi, 3rd House, 4th House, 6th House, 8th House, 10th House and 12th House. Out of these, 11th House transit of Jupiter is highly auspicious transit. At the same time, 3rd House transit of Jupiter as counted from rashi or lagna is highly inauspicious and is the worst transit of Jupiter. Based on these principles, we can summarize the results for various rashis as follows:

1. Aries

For Aries, Jupiter is going through 8th house transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

Jupiter is a friend of rashi lord, but 8th house is not a good transit as it indicates hidden obstacles from all areas. Difficulty to the spouse is indicated, especially when it comes to women. It also indicates health problems. Foreign travel is indicated during the period of transit, but it is usually accompanied by fatigue. Change of place is indicated but it will not bring happiness. During the period of retrogression of Jupiter, loss of near and dear ones, loss of wealth and fear of litigation is indicated. Any auspicious transit through 8th house indicates gains through inheritance. The family will be there to support you even through emotional problems.

2. Taurus

For Taurus, Jupiter is going through the 7th house transit, which is an auspicious transit.

This is a good transit that indicates affects the house of spouse, social network and labha (falling in Meena rashi) and the house of valour, bravery and siblings (falling in Karka rashi). Happiness with the spouse is indicated for both sexes and more so for women for whom the planet is natural karaka for the husband. It also indicates favours from those around. Travel will be auspicious. Financial gains, prosperity, especially in new enterprises is indicated. You will be able to create new “partners” in success and grow your support circle. The problem with such transit is there can be too much of a good thing. You will be overoptimistic and may not see the negative side of things. This is a good time for students as they will be able to learn new subjects. Health problems can occur due to overindulgence. Food intake should be controlled.

3. Gemini

For Gemini, Jupiter is going through the 6th house transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

Intelligent opposition is  indicated, which means you will have to deal with people with brains. At the same time, you can be a little lethargic in dealing with them. You will believe yourself to be a balanced and just person, but this attitude alone will not help in the current situation. Difference of opinion with spouse and family is indicated. For those who are not yet married, prospects of marriage will be delayed or there will be obstacles. This is true more for Taurus women. Health will suffer if you do not control eating, especially kapha foods – oily food, milk products should be consumed with caution. Retrograde Jupiter will cause emotional problems and diseases of the abdomen area. Prospects in business and job will be average while you should watch how you align with your superiors and how you maintain your reputation. This is a good period for saving money and improving on your fixed deposits.

4. Cancer

For Cancer, Jupiter is going through the 5th House transit, which is an auspicious transit.

Cancer is an exaltation sign for Jupiter and this will be a good period for an overall increase of knowledge. This is a good period for students, especially in the higher education stage. Money through speculation, the stock market will also help by providing a stable judgement in dealing with the fickle stock market. Jupiter has drishti on 11th house and it will mean bigger and better chances of earning money through association of learned people and through higher status in ones social surroundings. Jupiter directly aspect the ascendant from 5th house and this will give you the stability of mind and health. For those who are looking for alliances, this is a good period to get married. There will also be happiness through children. There will be a desire to have kids and hence its a good period for conception if your dasha/antardasha periods are also supportive.

5. Leo

For Leo, Jupiter is going through the 4th House transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

Tough period indicated by restlessness and emotional ups and downs. Relationship with mother can become difficult. Be careful with litigation related to property when other family members are involved as opposing party. However, the period would still feel better since you just came out of even worse 3rd House transit. This period brings stability in some sense. This will be some irritants at work since Jupiter does not aspect a friendly sign in 10th house. Relationship with your boss will be somewhat difficult. Jupiter will also activate 8th house and 12th house significations. Both the houses are Jupiter’s swakshetra and exaltation houses and can indicate betterment with respect to spirituality. Keep an eye on your health. Kapha will dominate: weight gain, water retention. Chest infection can occur.

6. Virgo

For Virgo, Jupiter is going though the 3rd House transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

Jupiter’s transit through the 3rd house is usually inauspicious and is only mitigated when the overall chart is strong. This transit usually brings in a change of place or separation in form of both short and long distance travels, which may not always be fruitful. Such transit causes restlessness or the other extreme of laziness. Diseases become worse especially during Jupiter’s retrograde motion. There is general failures in new projects because the person suffers from the general lack of motivation. Still, at this time, the person usually indulges in a lot of self promotion and marketing, through spoken and written communication. In other words, there is a lot of talk, but actual changes on the ground are not visible. Relationship with spouse will be supporting, since Pisces is Jupiter’s swakshetra in 7th house. Money situation will be good due to Jupiter’s aspect on the 11th house since Jupiter is natural karaka of gains and is intimately related to the 11th house.

7. Libra

For Libra, Jupiter is going through the 2nd House transit, which is an auspicious transit.

This is a rewarding transit as Jupiter is in a friendly house. Mental satisfaction occurs because family life is peaceful. This is a period of expansion of wealth along with investment in property. At work, promotion can happen if you have kept your cool and worked hard during the previous cycle. Problems with enemies/competitors are indicated and life will not be easy. You make take more debt than necessary. Take care of health as well, but there will not be any chronic problems. You can become indulgent with food. Avoid sweet and fatty food or kapha problems will prevail. You will be fortunate at the place of work, and you will get help from superiors and the govt of the day. Those involved in research will do well.

8. Scorpio

For Scorpio, Jupiter is going through the 1st House transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

This is a period of change and stress. It can also give overconfidence to individuals, which may not work out in your favour and can result in failures and disappointment in the long run. Still, karma is required and this is a good time for learning and application of such learning. Expenditure becomes very high. There can be harassment from the government. Your own education and kids will get sufficient support. Those pursuing high studies will benefit from this transit. Health will be good during this period. Cough, cold and general illness will bother you.

9. Sagittarius

For Sagittarius, Jupiter is going through the 12th House transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

This is a period of rest, reflection and realization. For Sagittarius borns, Sadhe sati is also going on and hence both longer term transits are adverse for you. Keep your head down during this transit. Do not stick your neck out. This period can cause problems with 12th, 6th and 8th house significations. Short term illnesses are indicated, but these will not bother you during the long term. Despite the problems, there will be emotional stability. Property transactions will suffer if there is a loan element involved. Legal issues will cause problems and hence property paperwork should be done properly. You can have problems if you are involved in the service industry, related to medical, legal or similar fields.


For Capricorn, Jupiter will go through the 11th house transition, which is auspicious.

Capricorn rashi borns will experience the best transit of Jupiter, which will be a welcome change for you since your sadhe sati is going on even though Jupiter is not exactly friendly to the rashi/lagna lord. This will pave way for good income, but you should not get carried away. Promotion at work and respect from peers is accompanied with this transit. Money will come from foreign sources. Siblings will help, but they can also be the source of expenditure for you.


For Aquarius, Jupiter will go through the 10th House transit, which is an inauspicious transit.

Jupiter is going through 10th house negative transit. Saturn is going through 11th house transit, which is positive and hence will compensate for the negative transit. Caution, discipline and a low profile – this is the key in this year. Family will help in all ways. Real estate transactions can have some irritants. Take care of your health. Controlled eating and strict dieting will be required otherwise too much sugar in the system can cause long term kapha dosha. Efforts will eventually lead to success, but the path will not be very clear in the beginning. Be careful because involvement in a scandal is indicated. You name should not be slandered.


For Pisces, Jupiter will got through the 9th House transit, which is an auspicious transit.

Jupiter is the natural significactor of the 9th house. Hence, logically, 9th house transit is a very auspicious transit for Jupiter. For Pisces borns, Jupiter is also rashi lord aspecting own rashi. Overall, this transit indicates wealth accumulation and respect from others. Children will do well and the desire to have kids is triggered during the year. Trine transit is also good for getting married. This is a good period for students as scholarship is indicated. Long distance travel will be rewarding. Having said all of this, there is a long term vedha of Saturn on Jupiter’s otherwise great transit and the positive effects will be muted. There will be very less you can do about it. Saturn is a planet of delay, fear, procrastination and these will be the main aspects visible during the transit. While doing remedies for Jupiter, also go through Saturn’s remedies and visit Shani temple on every Saturday.

If Jupiter is going through inauspicious transit, the following general remedies will work:

  • Donate jaggary, chana dal to elderly priests
  • Pay respect to your gurus, teachers and do not insult them
  • Pray to Lord Ganesha and Lord Vishnu

For any specific remedies, your horoscope will need to be examined.

    Thanks for the informative article !
    Please be kind to answer the query that – if by lagna Jupiter is transiting 3rd house and by moon in the 2nd, what would be the results ?

    It is a bit confusing as to whether these results are from ascendand or Janma Rashi? In my case the results are quite opposite. Born in Scorpio Lagna with Pisces Janma Rashi (Moon in Pisces), the results if read from Ascendant are negative whereas if read from the Janma Rashi Pisces, these are highly positive.

    Can you advise how should I view it. Jupiter is in Leo in the Natal Chart.
