According to Indian astrology, Jupiter is changing its sign from Aries to Taurus on 17th May 2012. Jupiter is the Guru, a preacher. Taurus is a sign owned by Venus, another Guru. Jupiter is a planet for finance whereas Taurus is the sign for luxury. Jupiter symbolizes spiritual world whereas Venus symbolizes physical world. Jupiter thinks of others first whereas Venus thinks of itself. There are lots of similarity because both of them are Gurus but some fundamental differences as well. Let us try to understand how it is going to impact you.
In astrology, Venus attains highest power when it is in the sign of Jupiter i.e. Pisces. Though Jupiter is said to be in enemies camp when it is in the sign of Venus. So generally for Jupiter, this is not among one of the best positions.At the time of changing sign, Jupiter will remain in Krittika nakshatra.Krittika nakshatra is not considered a good Nakshatra for any planet in general, so Jupiter doesn't get much power here. During the course of its transit through Taurus, Jupiter will also pass through Rohini and Mrigshira nakshatra.
How will be this transit for you? Before proceeding I want to caution that in astrology, dasa must be given more importance than transit. Transit can not overrule your dasa, so lot depends upon your dasa and do not expect overnight change due to this change in Jupiter's transit. There is another caution that I want to place here. In astrology, we need to combine various factors to conclude whether a period will be good or bad. For example, how is Jupiter in your birth chart, which dasa you are passing through, which nakshatra Jupiter is passing through etc. So the zodiac sign given next is just suggesting and not conclusive. Last but not the least, position of Venus (sign lord for Taurus) and Sun (nakshatra lord Krittika) is very important here. If these planets are good, you will get good results for this Transit change. If these planets are not well placed in your birth chart, you can not expect good result from this transit change. Anyways, here are the results according to AstroSage.com Transit Horoscope (based on Ascendant / Lagna) -
