Since Jupiter is THE planet of wealth, and Taurus is THE sign of wealth and finances, a major theme of this transit is building a solid foundation for your future financial success and happiness.
Other aims and themes of this transit? Committing long-term to the things that bring you pleasure and joy. Long-term abundance, long-term wealth, sustainable pleasure, maturity, growth, etc. So, how can you harness the energy of Jupiter in Taurus for growth, abundance, and major prosperity? It’s simple–and no, it doesn’t involve any Lucky Girl Syndrome meditations or money manifestation rituals. (Though you’re welcome to try those as well.) Here are five tips and strategies to get you started:
- Cultivate Self-Worth
Jupiter in Taurus encourages us to value ourselves and our unique talents and abilities. (This is because of Taurus’ connection to the astrological 2nd House of personal stock and values, btw.) It’s important over the next 12 months to take time to reflect on what makes you special and how you can use your gifts to make a positive impact in the world.
Whether it’s through creative expression, community service, or professional achievement, find ways to celebrate your unique contributions. Known as the great benefic (which basically means “bestower of blessings”), Jupiter can magnetize more positive opportunities to you when you value and believe that you deserve them.
- Build Resilience
With Jupiter in Taurus, we have the opportunity to build resilience and inner strength. This transit encourages us to embrace challenges and setbacks as opportunities for growth and learning. Jupiter is the planet of many things– abundance, opportunity, spirituality–but it has a special proclivity for optimism and learning.
Whatever Jupiter brings to you during this time–whether it’s a job opportunity, a new friendship, travel points–it is meant for your higher good. So, even if the thing doesn’t work out, as long as you keep a positive attitude and choose to learn from the experience, you’ll gain from it and attract more. Remember, every obstacle is a chance to build character and become more resilient in the face of adversity. (Sidenote: as Jupiter transits a fixed (i.e.: magnetic) sign like Taurus, the planet will bring you many, many things. Why? Because fixed signs attract and magnetize what they desire better and easier than the other signs.)
- Set Meaningful Goals
Jupiter in Taurus is a great time to set goals that align with your values and aspirations. Whether it’s saving for a down payment on a house, starting a new business, or pursuing a creative project, set realistic and achievable goals that inspire you to take action. After all, Taurus is an earth sign and earth signs love practical things.
So, it might even be that this transit encourages you to be more pragmatic and sensible with your time and your resources as you build on what you already have. Taurus is a building sign; that is, it wants to shape, mold, and forge ideas or creative inspiration into a tangible, touchable, smellable reality. But the only way to do this is through practical goal-setting. And don’t forget to celebrate your progress along the way!
- Embrace Abundance
Jupiter in Taurus is all about cultivating abundance in all areas of life, from material wealth to emotional fulfillment. This transit encourages us to enjoy the simple pleasures of life, such as good food, good company, and beautiful surroundings. Taurus especially aims to indulge in its favorite creature comforts. And this isn’t a bad thing. In fact, by embracing your opulent side, you’re more likely to attract more abundance and prosperity.
But there’s a caveat: both Jupiter and Taurus love, love, LOVE taking things to the extreme. This means gorging, greed, excess, and hoarding. After all, Taurus is a self-centered side, which means Jupiter’s natural tendency towards generosity can disappear if you let it. So, treat yourself to a fancy dinner or splurge on a luxurious spa day – but don’t forget to share your wealth (whether it’s financial or spiritual), and focus just as much on giving!
- Stay Grounded
With Jupiter in Taurus, it’s important to stay grounded and connected to our physical bodies and the natural world. Taurus loves the sensual sides of life–Lush bath bombs, gourmet meals, Chanel perfume–and the more you allow yourself to indulge and stay connected to your senses, the easier this transit’s energy will flow.
Jupiter loves to do what’s fun and feels good. And when you’re feeling good and buoyant, this works to help you attract more of those things that inspire those feelings. Still, Taurus is a slow-moving earth sign, intent on relishing and savoring the world around it. So, ultimately, this transit reminds us to slow down and appreciate the beauty of the world around us. Take a nature walk, do some gardening, or simply sit outside and soak up the sun. You’ll feel more centered and grounded in no time.
2023 Jupiter in Taurus is a time for personal growth, prosperity, and abundance. By cultivating self-worth, building resilience, setting meaningful goals, embracing abundance, and staying grounded, we can make the most of this transit and create a brighter future for ourselves and those around us. So, grab your Taurus bull by the horns and ride the cosmic wave to success and happiness!
And remember, as the great philosopher / pop icon Madonna once said, “We are living in a material world, and I am a material girl.” With Jupiter in Taurus, you can embrace your inner material girl (or boy) and manifest the abundance and prosperity you deserve.
