Jupiter the greatest Guru after a period of two years is entering the sign of his friend Mars in early October. Jupiter represents expansion, he is a teacher, the harbinger of knowledge and this transit can be multi-faceted in nature.

In this article, we look at the Gochara (transit) of Guru or Jupiter. The largest of the planets in our Solar system with about 79 moons revolving around it, Jupiter is a one of a kind planet. The gravitational pull of Jupiter is the strongest and acts as a shield to protect the Earth from any heavenly body that may be trying to enter the solar system.

Jupiter takes around 12 years to move around the entire zodiac. Hence Jupiter transits are transformational. Jupiter enters Scorpio in early October 2018 and will move at a very fast pace and enter Sagittarius by end of March 2019 before retrograding back to Scorpio after which it again turns direct and will continue to be in Scorpio through mid-2019, before moving to Sagittarius in the first week of November 2019.

Usually transits or gochara are seen from the Moon sign since it affects an individual at a mental level. Let us understand how this transit may affect your Moon sign.
