Finally, Guru (Jupiter) moves out of Capricorn where it was debilitated. It is a time of celebration as Jupiter comes out of debilitation.

Jupiter was briefly in the sign of Aquarius on 5th April until 14th September before it retrograded back into the sign of Capricorn. On November 20th, Jupiter moves again into the sign of Aquarius.

Aquarius in Sanskrit is called Kumbha rashi. Kumbha means a jar or a pitcher or a pot. It is a fixed sign (sthira rashi). So stagnation is a keyword here (water and fixed).
We always tend to store things (both positive and negative) thinking we will use it sometime in the future, but in doing so we risk stagnation. It is wise to store what is needed and discard what may turn out to be poisonous for us. For example, storing negative emotions leads to stress which in turn leads to various other life-threatening consequences. Jupiter would bring the much-needed light, knowledge and wisdom for us to understand what’s worth saving and what is to be discarded.

Aquarius is an airy sign ruled by 2 Airy planets Shani (Saturn) and Rahu. The Samudra Manthan (churning of the oceans) is deeply connected to the sign Aquarius.

This transit will happen in the constellation of Dhanishta ruled by Mangal (Mars). The 3rd and 4th pada of this Nakshatra is in the sign of Aquarius. So we will experience the energy of Shani, Mangal, Rahu and Guru. This transit will influence us to have a more practical outlook on life and finish pending karmas. Though the energy is transformative if we are willing to adapt, it will help us address our negative qualities and come out of the vicious cycle. The wisdom of Jupiter will help us let go of patterns that are not life-supporting.
