August 27, 2003 until September 24, 2004

Jupiter is the largest of all the true planets. Its mass is greater than all the rest of the planets combined. If it was only 20% larger it would develop enough heat at its core to be a star. Astrologically, Jupiter is the planet of expansion, growth and optimism. Known as "The Greater Benefic," it symbolizes good luck and fortune. In the ancient Indian language Sanskrit Jupiter is called "guru" or teacher. This fits its association with the higher mind, philosophy, truth and religion. Perhaps Jupiter's good fortune derives from the capacity to give us a larger view in which to see the world.

Expansive Jupiter in the technically-oriented sign of Virgo is a wonderful time to develop new systems and skills. A broader understanding of how things function is possible now. This includes a greater awareness of psychological patterns so that emotions are used more intelligently.

Traditional astrology considered Virgo to be a difficult place for Jupiter. The planet of expansion can feel constrained in the sign of details. Putting too much importance on minor matters and turning molehills into mountains are possible. A little flaw can be blown up out of proportion, distracting attention from the big picture.

The key, as is often the case with Jupiter, is judgment. If we are overly concerned with trying to make ourselves right or wrong, we can miss out on the information that's available to us. Instead of trying so hard to measure the results, the gift comes from watching the process. There's an enormous amount to be learned when Jupiter's overview and Virgo's precision operate well together.

Jupiter in Virgo is common among female tennis stars. Steffi Graf, Venus Williams and Martina Navratilova are among the sport's all-time greats who each have this planetary placement. A taste for the unusual is shown by Jupiter in Virgo individuals Art Bell and Whitley Streiber.

Actresses Cate Blanchett and Anne Heche belong to this club, as do Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton, Philip Roth, Steve Martin and Michael Douglas. Other members include Michele Kwan, Chelsea Clinton, Lisa Marie Presley and Larry Bird.
