What is a Jupiter return?

Every 12 years, we start a new chapter of our lives. This is due to Jupiter re-entering the zodiac sign that Jupiter was in when we were born. As Jupiter takes 12 years to move around the zodiac wheel, this means that we experience Jupiter returns at ages 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, and so forth.

Think back to when you were 12. Did anything significant happen in your life at this age?

And what about at age 24? Maybe you can already identify these 12-year cycles and how they’ve affected your life.

Jupiter is the planet of growth, luck and expansion, so typically when we experience a Jupiter return we will experience MORE growth, luck & expansion.

Common themes of Jupiter returns include physical growth, studying, and relationships. These Jupiter cycles often bring new chapters & opportunities.

What you need to know if you’re 36 years old

At age 36 years old, we experience our third Jupiter return. You might find yourself re-experiencing new chapters that emerged from your previous Jupiter returns at ages 12 and 24.

I find it helpful to consult the natal chart to understand more about what to expect for the Jupiter return. Just by tuning into your natal Jupiter zodiac sign & house, you can find out A LOT of what to expect during your Jupiter return!
