Oh, finally, this is the sort of thing I always wonder about:
"A slow moving transit (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) impacting a natal house/planet is often associated with big events in your love life. There is a specific set of expectations associated with each planet. But when these transits hit, and the expected doesn’t happen, you might wonder what the deal is."
Yes, yes, I do!
What you expect: good stuff. An existing relationship bursts at the seams with happiness. An amazing new relationship barrels into your life.
What you may get: a relationship ends. If you’re single, you stay single.
The keyword with Jupiter is “expansion.” Jupiter expands everything. If you and your partner are on the verge of splitting, Jupiter’s push for freedom can be similar to a Uranus transit. The difference is that Jupiter-driven endings can be more amicable. Jupiter broadens your concept of what’s possible, and that includes the possibility of moving on. A Jupiter transit can also expand your existing fears/depressions/anxieties/self-destructive habits. If you’re single, and something that’s been holding you back gets worse, know that Jupiter is amplifying it. The upside? Jupiter also gives you a way out, or at least the opportunity to look for a way out. Remember that Jupiter expands your sense of what’s possible; keep your eyes open for a chance meeting (not necessarily romantic) that opens your eyes to a different way of dating or relating.
Suddenly that explains a lot.
What you expect: divorce, loneliness, isolation.
What you may get: a new relationship or solidified commitment.
This heavy planet can delivers the goods, in a positive way. Yes, transiting Saturn (especially through the 7th House) can bring a new relationship. It won’t be easy, and there will be significant responsibilities attached. But transiting Saturn can bring love.
Hah, totally happened when Saturn was going through my seventh/transiting my Sun/Chiron/ascendant.
What you expect: ruptured relationships or a flash in the pan affair that goes no where.
What you may get: a new relationship that goes the distance, or new life in an existing partnership.
Whether you’re being shaken, stirred or shocked, Uranus wants you to move. Move on from what’s holding you back, towards the future. Sometimes a new relationship’s only purpose is to propel you out of your rut or unhappy partnership. Once you wake up, the new lover vanishes as quickly as he or she materialized. But some relationships that start under this transit can last, if both parties are ready to move forward together.
I haven't really done this one yet, but my forties should be uh, interesting.
"Sometimes,what you get from a major transit is nothing. It’s business as usual, even if transiting Pluto is moving through your 7th House. Or Uranus is moving over your Venus. If this is the case, you may be overlooking the changes (or opportunities for change). Or, the absence of change is significant in itself. If you are absolutely certain nothing is shifting in your love life, it’s time to look at your relationship to that natal planet. What’s happening with its natal position in your chart? How do you deal with its energy in your life? It may be that you have no lessons to learn. But it’s also possible that you’re not tuned into that planet’s energy. Simply becoming aware of how it functions in your life (or how you may be suppressing it) can make a difference."
"There can be red hot anguish in undergoing a crisis of faith—it’s a
loss of hope that leaves us in despair. We’re afraid for our own
It’s that Dark Night of the Soul. It’s Jesus, crying out on the cross, “My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?”
In times of religious/spiritual crisis in my own life, I don’t necessarily see 9th
house transits but more often transits to natal Jupiter. I’ve
experienced transits to natal Jupiter from every slow-moving planet from
Saturn to Pluto in the time I’ve been in astrology.
I’ve seen major transits to natal Jupiter producing a similar painful upheavals in the lives of clients and friends as well:
They’re often experienced as a far-reaching crisis of faith where everything we thought we knew no longer seems true or valid.
Those are the times when our spiritual teachers or others we looked to for inspiration turn out to have terribly human flaws.
It’s those times when everything we thought made us a good person doesn’t keep us safe when the worst happens.
Those are the times when the old answers that we firmly believed in no longer serve, and we have to expand our worldview."
