Transit Jupiter conjunct natal Jupiter is Jupiter return. Everybody has a Jupiter return every 12 year. My Jupiter return charts give some indication of the way that I developed or grew in the Jupiter return years. I grew when I was pregnant in 1974. I grew 12 kilo after that I quit smoking in 1986 (Jupiter inconjunct Moon in my return chart). My salary grew in 1998 (Sun on top in the return chart). And today I have another Jupiter return (see drawing) and I wonder: will I grow again!@?
My experience with Jupiter return is that there is little measurable effect on the day of the return itself. I was pregnant already in 1974 and pregnant women grow... More direct effect had 1998. But in 1986 the moment of Jupiter return had it's effect weeks and months later! To quit smoking and grow 20% you need to have confidence first, stop it later and start growing...
Jupiter return is not reflecting a specific event.
Jupiter return offers some insight in a possible development, mostly in the years that everybody has to make choices for the next step: 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72...schooling, profession, career, midlife crisis ending, preparing for pension, etc. Jupiter might help to make the right choices, because Jupiter is the big positive advisor. With a positive attitude it is easier to succeed. Jupiter gives hope for the future and the conjunction starts a brand new period of new goals to reach.
A solar return chart is drawn for the moment that transit Sun is conjunct natal Sun. This moment might give insight in the year to come. Jupiter's return might give insight for the next 12 years.
I wonder who noticed the effect of Jupiter conjunct Jupiter on the specific day of the Jupiter return....In my opinion the conjunction just mirrors an awareness of possible positive developments, stimulated by an advice or book or just a compliment? Today, when I was surfing I noticed a few words about positive thinking. This reminded me of calculating the Jupiter return moment and when I did, it was on right on Jupiter time. So maybe my Jupiter conjunct Jupiter is for calculating Jupiter's return:) That would be in line with the position of Jupiter in the 12th house of the return chart. Recently I noticed that Jupiter in the 12th house sometimes doesn't have an effect at all. So I guess that I shouldn't expect too much of this Jupiter return of mine. But that is not positive thinking, is it?
