One of the most defining transits of 2023 is hitting on May 16, when lucky planet Jupiter makes its annual entry into a new part of the zodiac. Jupiter is the planet of luck and fortune, so it brings glitzy opportunities and glowy blessings wherever it goes—and you’ll want to know how the earthy magic of Jupiter in Taurus will affect your zodiac sign. For the first time in more than a decade, Jupiter is entering Taurus territory, where it’ll travel through May 25, 2024. The recent astrology has included a powerful lunar eclipse and an intense Mercury retrograde, but Jupiter in Taurus is here to make all it worth your while.
Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system and is named for the Roman king of gods, so it’s no surprise that this regal celestial body is the astrological ruler of growth, expansion and abundance. This jovial cosmic giant governs everything from success and optimism to philosophy and knowledge. It’s also known as the “greater benefic” in traditional astrology, thanks to its beneficial and auspicious influence on our horoscopes. Think of it as the cosmos’ lucky charm! Wherever Jupiter goes, fortune and opportunity tend to follow, so its entry into the fertile and grounded sign of Taurus signifies some lush new beginnings for all zodiac signs.
Having Jupiter in Aries over the past year marked the start of a fresh cosmic cycle. This transit swung open all sorts of sparkly doors of opportunity in our lives, bestowing us with zingy new ideas and a zealous motivation to pursue our loftiest aspirations. Now, with Jupiter in Taurus, we’re developing the dedication, patience and faith needed to materialize our magic and make it tangible. Taurus’ pragmatic and stability-seeking energy helps to ground our wild Jupiterian dreams in reality, giving them solid forms and greater worth. It’s a time of renewed faith in our personal values, and it grants us all access to a greater abundance-mindset.
Speaking of abundance, Taurus is the sign associated with wealth and luxury, so Jupiter’s year-long stay here can definitely help us generate some big material blessings. The coming year is a powerful time to increase our financial assets, maximize our capacity for sensual pleasure and generate more resources. It may even bring an opulent and maximalist flair to the Taurus-ruled realms of music, beauty and food. Just remember that there can be too much of a good thing—if left unchecked, Jupiter in Taurus could lead to hedonism, laziness or out-of-control materialism. It’ll be easy to overindulge in earthly delights during this time, so be sure to give into generosity instead of greed.
We have a full year to work with this sensual brand of Jupiter magic, and maximizing on it is a must. Here’s what to know about how Jupiter in Taurus will affect you, based on your sun and/or rising sign:
The coming year is bringing massive opportunities to increase your wealth and buff up your bank account, Aries, so don’t be surprised if you come into a significant pay raise or an investment starts paying dividends. And with such plentiful resources at your disposal, you may find that you’re more generous than usual, too. But the material magic of this transit is about more than just money, though—you’ll also have an opportunity to connect with your physical body in a deeper and more pleasurable way now. Treat yourself to some five-star restaurants, fine wines, or somatic healing experiences. Just make sure you don’t splurge on too many unnecessary and opulent purchases. The Jupiter in Taurus temptation toward excess is real!
The universe is granting you a Midas touch for the whole next year, Taurus, so get ready to turn everything you touch to solid gold. Jupiter only hits your sign every 12 years, so this is a special period marked by immense personal growth, new opportunities and an influx of good fortune. You’re developing a profoundly deep faith in yourself and your ability to manifest your magic in the tangible realm—and this power is reflected in your confident and jovial presence. Fixed signs like you aren’t always partial to taking risks, but for the next year, trust that luck is on your side. Now’s a time to take a leap of faith and trust that your guardian angels have your back.
Throughout the coming year, prepare for your intuition to get just as sharp and far-reaching as your intellect, Gemini. Jupiter’s tour through your dreamy twelfth house is expanding your mystical connection and deepening your faith in the invisible forces of the universe. You’re learning to trust your gut feelings and give your higher self more room to make itself known. With Jupiter in Taurus, it’s also an important time to prioritize rest and solitude. You’re naturally a social butterfly, but some rejuvenating solo time will help you connect with your inner power in an entirely new way. Remember, downtime doesn’t mean laziness—daydreaming and slowing down are ways of recharging your batteries!
Having a solid support system is important to you, Cancer—and with Jupiter in your community-oriented eleventh house through the coming year, it’ll be easier than ever to surround yourself with people who are aligned with your highest values. Your friend group is expanding and you’re finding more ways to feel connected with your fellow humans. This influx of fulfilling social energy has the added benefit of infusing your hopes and wishes with a newfound sense of optimism, too.

If you’re looking for love, Scorpio, you’re in luck—because fortune-filled Jupiter is blessing your relationship sector throughout the coming year. Look forward to all sorts of opportunities to build closer bonds with potential partners and make meaningful commitments to the people you care about. You tend to play your emotional cards close to your chest in relationships, but this year is an auspicious time to be generous with your love and resources. What you give to others is likely to come back to you tenfold! This is also a beautiful time to enjoy the sensual pleasures of partnership and get to know your lovers’ body in a new way. Physical and emotional connections can move hand in hand.
