Jupiter or Brihaspati, the Greatest of the Benefics will transit Gochara through Tula / Libra on September 12th 2017 till October 12th 2018
Jupiter enters Tula in the Nakshatra or the Fixed Star Constellation of Chitra on September 12th 2017.
It is said of the greatest of the Planet that there are not many ills that it cannot cure! Just take a look Astronomically,it is the largest planet in the solar system.
Jupiter Astronomically Speaking…
It is approximately 143,000 kilometers (about 89,000 miles) wide at its equator. Jupiter is so large that all of the other planets in the solar system could all fit well within it with room to spare! More than 1,300 Earths would fit inside Jupiter. When viewed from Earth, Jupiter is usually the second brightest planet in the night sky, after Venus.
“Of all the planets that circle the Sun, Giant Jupiter is the biggest one” (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/jupiter-big-orbit-sun-mass-a7866586.html)
The gas giant is indeed the largest planet in the solar system, weighing more than twice the mass of all the other planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and more combined. In Fact the Gas Giant Ball is so huge that it cannot really dance or orbit round the Sun.Jupiter is about 0.001 as massive than the sun, but it’s sizeable enough that both the sun and Jupiter orbit that point in space.
It has over 69 Moons orbiting it out of which 53 have been named officially by NASA.The planet Jupiter’s four largest moons are called the Galilean satellites after Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, who first observed them in 1610. The German astronomer Simon Marius claimed to have seen the moons around the same time, but he did not publish his observations and so Galileo is given the credit for their discovery. These large moons, named Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto, are each distinctive worlds. One of the Moons,Europa, its surface is mostly water ice, and there is evidence that it may be covering an ocean of water or slushy ice beneath. Europa is thought to have twice as much water as does Earth. This moon intrigues astrobiologists because of its potential for having a “habitable zone.” Life forms have been found thriving near subterranean volcanoes on Earth and in other extreme locations that may be analogues to what may exist on Europa.
Ganymede is the largest moon in the solar system (larger than the planet Mercury), and is the only moon known to have its own internally generated magnetic field.
Callisto’s surface is extremely heavily cratered and ancient — a visible record of events from the early history of the solar system. However, the very few small craters on Callisto indicate a small degree of current surface activity.
Enough on the Giganticsaurusness of the Brihaspati, or Jupiter. In the Vedas, Jupiter rules the Vedas along with Ketu. So indeed we now know that not just is it literally a huge awesome in its size strength and brightness but also metaphorically! Hence, in ancient India it is considered the greatest of benefic planets.Even more than the Moon or Venus or Sun. There is not much that Jupiter cannot battle with.Jupiter is the real representation of divinity in the chart, as he does the filtering and cleansing of thoughts because of which the Soul or Atma is capable of continued existence within the body. The Cleansing and Spiritual power of Jupiter is match for none, and it is for this reason alone that Jupiter gives long life and stop apamrityu death in its tracks and all sorts of evils. Hence it is a karaka for all the great houses, 2nd house of Food, Nourishment, voice, incomes, resources, 5th house of Mantra Sastra, knowledge, Guru Upadesha, house of learning and knowledge, 9th house of Dharma/Spirituality,father,Higher learning, 11th house of Dreams, Hopes Wishes, Networks , profits and gains Friends, Elder Siblings. To an extent even the 10th house of Career, Social status etc. It certainly has Digbala / greatest of Strength in Lagna/Ascendant.
So when it comes into the sign of Venus, Tula, where Venus’s home and Saturn’s exaltation and Sun’s debilitation, it feels ill at ease. Venus is the Guru of Asuras and is distinctively different to Jupiter’s sort of teaching and spirituality. Venus is the gift of Mrityuinjaya, or the secrets of Death and Mysticism. While Guru is about Scholarly, highly accomplished Devas and divine Spiritual Leader. So there ‘brands’ of themes are distinctly different. So Jupiter in Venus’s terrain will certainly not totally at home, but will expand/grow no doubt. Lord Vishnu will surely get Jupiter to expand the house it lands in. Jupiter’s ethos is Higher Spiritual Consciousness.

Sun in Virgo or Moon or Lagna/Rising (Mercury Ruled):
Jupiter is transiting your 2nd house,that rules food, family, use of your voice, incomes, resources . So naturally it will expand these areas of your life and as Jupiter rules the arena of relationships , homes and happiness, you may find yourself feeling good about all of these matters.

Jupiter is a fantastic planet for Scorpio lagna’s, as it rules extremely favourable house, ruling the 5th and the 2nd. So all matters foreign will favour you as it is in the house of bed pleasures, long distance travel etc.
Sagittarius Sun or Moon or Ascendant (Jupiter Ruled): Sagittarius, your world over the next couple of years is about to be shaken in a significant way.

So, it will give excellent results in your work life and gains. Past couple of years have not been great, and you are most likely to not just make up for almost all of the losses, and of course do expect a few too. But it will also bring with it hope for the future. This is a time to cast the net far and wide with skill and expertise at managing projects, that you are so famous for. Keep up with your optimism and work methodically, as this is a fabulous time to lay foundation for things you had only dreamt of.

Be very mindful of entering into new partnerships of any kind, whether intimate or business or personal.
