Jupiter’s Journeying Scorpio, Sagittarius & Capricorn
Jupiter represents the light of the world. It is Zeus, Jesus – the rebuker of hypocrites, liars, and worse. We see its bright light shining on the signs it moves through, exposing the devious and malignant actions of those who abide in darkness.
When Jupiter was in Scorpio, from October 2017 through November 2018, we saw Jupiter’s light shining on sex scandals.
Jupiter has left Scorpio and now is in the sign of higher education, Sagittarius, till December 2nd, 2019. Notice the big scandal now is breaking off, effecting the rich celebrities and wealthy who bribed their way into prestigious universities and are being indicted.
Jupiter is a planet of bounty and good, but 2020 will mark the height of the divisive and accusatory political scene. As the Good Book says : “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of the world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.’ (Ephesians.6 :12). The Catholic Church will be particularly damaged by this transit through Capricorn.
In early October 2018, Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood producer, was fired from his namesake company after multiple women came forward to accuse him of rape and sexual assault. Since then, there’s been nearly one hundred celebrities and persons in positions of power and influence accused of sexual misconduct.
In what appears to be a seismic shift in what behavior is tolerated in the workplace, a cascade of high-profile men, many in the entertainment and news media industries, have since been fired or forced to resign after accusations of sexual misconduct that ranged from inappropriate comments to rape.
Some high-profile cases are not on the lists below because the accusations of misconduct were not clearly sexual in nature and the men who were accused did not admit to sexual misconduct. For example, some men have been fired for “inappropriate behavior” or “misconduct,” but the details of their actions remain unclear.
Dayan Candappa, chief content officer of Newsweek Media Group and global editor in chief of the International Business Times, took a leave of absence after it was revealed that he was fired from his previous position as a top editor at Reuters because of accusations of sexual harassment.

Mr. Weinberger, Mr. Taylor, and a representative for Mr. Faulk and Mr. Evans did not respond to requests for comment.

Roy Moore, the former Republican nominee for a United States Senate seat in Alabama, had financing for his campaign withdrawn by the Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee after he was accused of sexual misconduct against teenage girls.

Mr. Baker said he was “disturbed by these anonymous allegations.” A third woman later accused him of inappropriate touching when they worked together at Us Weekly. In November, E! News and Mr. Baker decided to part ways, a decision they said was unrelated to the investigation.
James Toback, a screenwriter and director, was dropped by his agent after 38 women accused him of sexual misconduct. He denied the accusations in a profanity-laden interview with Rolling Stone. Since The Los Angeles Times published its investigation, hundreds of women have reached out to describe their encounters.
Jupiter in Sagittarius brings light into injustice and corruption regarding this sign’s influence. In the case of the fraudulent admissions into universities and celebrities paying huge sums to get their children admissions with bribes is a very Sagittarius area of influence, as it governs higher education and universities. Until the light of Zeus shined on this sign, we might never have known about this corruption.
The airlines are also ruled by Sag (long journeys) and now we see Boeing grounding their fleet of 737 Max 8 jets due to the deadly crashes of two of their newest aircrafts.
Zeus will shine its light wherever needed to reveal what needs to be healed, or corrected. We generally only attribute positive and good things to Jupiter, not realizing that chastisement and correction is one of the most beneficial of attributes if it corrects bad behavior or practices. “The Lord chastises those he loves,” as the Good Book says. The more corrupt and deceitful the condition, the more the light of Zeus exposes it with its righteous anger. The thunder bolt of Zeus is both chastising and deadly.
Other areas that Jupiter in Sag will shed light on is publishing. Local newspapers are closing by the hundreds as digital news crowds them out of business. Even the New York Daily News just cut its staff by 50%, and similar actions are occurring at the New York Times. The fate and demise of the publishing business is written on the wall.
As Jupiter leaves the sign of Sagittarius and enters Capricorn, the 2nd of December 2019, the light will be shining on political rulers and power brokers revealing those who have done injustice and have corrupted their positions of trust. The sign of Capricorn will bring ‘Scape Goating“ (the blame game) to create divisions and accusations in the political domain. The 2020 election will be seen as the most divisive and destructive of all, with Zeus shining its light upon the corruption and crimes in high places. It could spark a revolution of destructive behavior by the disenfranchised.
The odd thing about Jupiter is that even though we ascribe good fortune and positive attributes to the planet, it serves as a cathartic and cleansing influence when evil and injustice prevail. The story of God’s wrath upon evil and unrepenting nations is told over and over in Scripture and as a nation that has turned away from wisdom, justice and godliness, we only bring upon ourselves the divine justice we deserve. Our enemies gain strength as we descend into debauchery and sin, leaving us open to attack and subjection. “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 12:22. Jupiter in Capricorn will teach this lesson very well!
