When Jupiter transits Virgo, he will be showering the very being of Virgos with his blessings. Of course, Jupiter’s blessings are not quite as pure for Virgos as is the case with several other ascendants. It’s long been recognized that Jupiter looses his first face when he comes into ownership of two kendra houses. It’s not that he reverses his face of benevolence, he just falls into helping like a normal man rather than like a saint. His wisdom can also become blunted.

In any case, Virgos should find their health strong while pleasures of the home and of the spouse are likely to relate to their personality. This may be especially true for women since Jupiter is known generally as the karaka for husband as well as being the 7th house owner which gives him an especially strong influence on such matters. In regards to some other general areas of life signified by Jupiter are children as well as the fat which is on our body. Since the first house affects our body, it’s possible that there could be some general expansion of the body. Children are also signified by Jupiter. It’s interesting that for Virgo natives, he rules the 4th house of the chest as well as the 7th house relating with the groin area while looking at the 5th house of children (and the stomach) as well as the 9th house relating to the thighs).

I would expect this Jupiter in Virgo transit to give favourable results to most Virgos, however there are many factors which need to be considered within your own chart as well as regarding the transits of all the other planets. Saturn, for instance, is also aspecting the 5th and the 9th houses which could suggest responsibility in these matters just as easily as it could represent delay or sorrow. And perhaps Saturn will give better results to these houses since, as 5th house owner looking at his own 5th house as well as his friends 9th house, he may have more welcome in operating in these fields than Jupiter who is not liked by either Saturn or Venus. Much of this again depends on their functioning in your own chart and the temporal relationship they have in your life.

I want to go back to this weight gain I mentioned with this combination. In many traditional societies, weight gain is looked upon favourably as a sign of prosperity. Even today I can recognize prosperity in my friends by the girth of their waist. It’s a luxury that we can seek to remain thin while still feeling secure that we will not starve. So, since you may show the signs of outward prosperity, there is also some likelihood that you will have it in your life as well.

Jupiter will be looking at your 9th house can bring some activity to your higher beliefs. Some meeting with a teacher is likely. This teacher could just as easily be a landscape, a temple, or any other sublime use of the senses. The 9th house also suggests some kind of pilgrimage travel, but Rahu currently transiting your 12th house and Jupiter’s previous position in the 12th house likely had a more powerful effect on travel and thoughts and feelings of being distant from your self (1st house). In any case, perhaps his Leo transit started you to expend your time and energy on some charity or education and now with Jupiter looking at the 9th house you will have the opportunity to gather the spiritual and religious fruits of that expenditure.

The 5th house represents spiritual practices rather than spiritual beliefs. With Capricorn in the 5th house Virgo natives can have a very practical way of thinking. For this reason they can be good at science and administration and they will always work hard to come to some solution. With both Saturn and Jupiter looking at the 5th house, this suggests a good time for spiritual practice, education, and your creative production in general.
