Jupiter in Scorpio

Jupiter in Scorpio or in Relation to Scorpio

(from Esoteric Astrology)

Specific Expressions of Jupiter in Scorpio

1. Jupiter (in Scorpio) in Relation to the Three Personality Vehicles:
Jupiter in this sign will increase the physical appetites, as Scorpio is associated with the three sub-diaphragmatic centers which impulse the instinctual nature. Astrally, the demand for satisfaction is increased, and desire reinforced. Jupiter represents the expectation of fulfillment in relation to any aspect of the human energy system it may influence.

Later, this combination is useful in the process of the second initiation, during which process benefit (Jupiter) comes through death (Scorpio)—in this case the “death” of the selfish desire nature. Properly expressed, Jupiter in Scorpio brings the blessings (Jupiter) of emotional release (Scorpio). Mentally, depth (Scorpio) of understanding (Jupiter) is increased. Upon the Fixed Cross, the mind is used as an instrument to “see through” and comprehend glamor. Control of the emotional nature comes through enhanced vision and understanding, and illumination grows.

2. Jupiter (in Scorpio) in Relation to the Personality as a Whole:
Scorpio makes desire insistent and intense, and Jupiter helps the environment fulfill that desire. As with Jupiterian Taurus, this combination helps the person “get” what he “wants”. Negatively, the Hydra may grow and be indulged. But wherever Scorpio appears, there is also a forced relinquishment, and Jupiter in Scorpio reveals the advantages of this relinquishment—whether material or spiritual advantages. Every investor knows that one must temporarily “give” or “give up” in order to receive later. Money, for instance, is given into the control of others (loans), so that it may return more abundantly (principle plus interest).

During the personal phase of development, this is good training, for deliberate sacrifice during the spiritual phase. In general, the sufficiently illumined personality under this combination will realize that there is always compensation for apparent loss. Scorpio rules the Hierarchy of Human Monads; regardless of an history of suffering and conflict, “hope [Jupiter] springs eternal in the human breast.”

3. Jupiter (in Scorpio) in Relation to the Fusion of Soul and Personality:
The very first Law of the Soul, is the Law of Sacrifice, ruled by the fourth ray. Scorpio is the principal transmitter, constellationally, of the fourth ray; the entire Human Hierarchy has “descended into hell” (the hell of material incarnation) for sacrificial and redemptive purposes. Every time a human being incarnates, he undergoes a Scorpionic “death by suffocation” (EA 98), but the compensation is soul-growth (the growth of the causal body, under Jupiter, which rules the “auric envelope” {EA 649}).

Jupiter in Scorpio fills personality life with great and small “beneficent deaths”. The soul cannot approach and infuse unless the personality is willing to give up those things which stand in the way. Through detachment from desire and its eventual “death” (EA 214-215), the individual is released into the bounty of soul life. There arises the “expectation (Jupiter) of gain (Jupiter) from loss (Scorpio)”, and the “Way of Sacrifice” (Scorpio) (DINA I 606) becomes the joyful way (Jupiter). Naturally, soul-personality fusion proceeds.

4. Jupiter (in Scorpio) in Relation to the Synthesis of Human Dualities—Head/Heart; Mind/Love; Will/Wisdom:
During typical human experience (under the sign Scorpio, which rules all of humanity) head wars with heart, mind with love and will with wisdom. Humanity’s way, initially, is the way of war. Scorpio promotes the conflict between the dualities. Jupiter, however, is a unifying force (for the second ray which it transmits, is the “Will to Unify” {EA 605} and Jupiter is the force which “brings all together”).

Jupiter always reveals that polarities are two parts of one whole, and are intended (at a certain point of evolution after discrimination has been established) to cooperate with and complement each other. Jupiter in Scorpio reveals how both aspects of warring dualities are needed for successful expression. The fourth ray is an aspect of the second ray and, in the normal progression of developments, fourth ray conflict resolves into harmony and, then, into second ray unity. Jupiter in Scorpio promotes this process.

5. Jupiter (in Scorpio) in Relation to the Means by which the Expansion of Consciousness may be Sought:
Very simply, expansion of consciousness is to be sought through wise and loving relinquishment. There is a giving up of lower things for higher. The words of Master Morya apply here: “when have you ever become less through sacrifice”? The relinquishment of the demands of the instinctual nature (Scorpio) confers vision of greater things. The consciousness expands because it is no longer preoccupied with fulfilling the personal nature. One sees and knows more (expansion) because released from the focal preoccupations of low desire.

6. Jupiter (in Scorpio) in Relation to the Fulfillment of Desire and the Satisfaction of Demand—:
1) initially, fulfillment for the little self; then . 2) fulfillment of desire for the good of the whole—a fulfillment achieved through the outgoing expression of love. Jupiter fulfills desire. Jupiter hopes and envisions; according to law, that which is conceived is achieved. The Hydra is happy—unaware, even, that it is a Hydra. Later, the man becomes the disciple, increasingly intent upon triumph over his lower nature, and intent, also, upon humanity’s triumph. According to law, the individual is given abundant (Jupiter) power (Scorpio), to help humanity achieve this triumph. How does this happen?

Because the disciple (under Scorpio) is not afraid to die to his usual desires, the abundance of Jupiter returns to him. Because the disciple is willing, joyfully, to “do without”, everything he needs and more flows back into his hands for the purpose of wise and selfless use. The principle is, “you can have the things you most desire as long as you are willing to relinquish those very things”. This same dynamic operates in relation to Jupiter in Pisces (another Plutonic sign). The world rewards with abundance the one who has demonstrated his freedom from desire. Again, death (this time, of desire) brings its compensations (Jupiter)
