Jupiter, the great benefactor.
All you need to know about Jupiter :
Jupiter rules the sign of Sagittarius and tells us about human ambition. Whether on the human, social or spiritual front, the giant planet (the largest in the solar system) has a tendency to amplify and increase everything with which it comes into contact. From the King of the Gods, we can therefore expect the best … and the worst! Whereas Saturn has a tendency to put plans in order and construct, to give structure to our behaviour and existence, Jupiter will breathe life into and give spiritual breadth to this structure, and put life into its construction.
Jupiter dispenses opportunities and we can count on his presence to liven up and launch an event, and get things moving. He prompts encounters, which will enable us to experience and add to the great transformation cycles governed and heralded by the movement of the denser planets (Pluto, Neptune, Uranus and Saturn), a group headed by Jupiter with panache! Jupiter has the reputation of being a generous provider and encouraging expansion in all areas of life, often representing the falling of manna from heaven! We should be careful however of this very optimistic and therefore very Jovian view of this planet, because if Jupiter promises the moon, we must not forget that by tradition, he is the god of thunder and can also then strike and destroy!
Jupiter in our charts :
Where Saturn brings limitation, constraint and sometimes renunciation, Jupiter invites us to broaden our horizons and push back the frontiers of the possible. It is no longer a question of measuring and containing, but of widening, increasing… and blossoming. Under Jupiter's tutelage, the individual asserts him or herself, finding his or her place and official status in society. He or she aims to integrate successfully and sometimes reach the top. Under Jupiter's guidance, we think big and want things… sometimes everything!
The planet thus inflates our aspirations and depending on the place it occupies in our birth chart, it will intensify our desire to gain social and material ascendancy. It encourages us to excel by achieving our objectives and at the same time essentially obtaining society's approval. In this way all professions conferring a good reputation in one way or another and inspiring respect will be equated with the function of Jupiter. Judges, teachers and leaders of all kinds symbolically represent the will to impose this and the desire for knowledge, which are linked to the generous, ambitious and sometimes excessive nature of the planet. And for those whose quest is no longer satisfied by small short-term glories, the philosophical or spiritual side will represent the ultimate achievement of Jovian power. While Jupiter likes to dictate laws and referee exchanges… on Earth… he is no less keen to elevate our ideals and increase our abilities to transcend the terrestrial plan and take off… up into the heavens!
Jupiter is very often represented in mythology by an eagle that glides above the crowd with its wings outstretched and therefore rises above human concerns, expressing our need for … the divine.
But it also expresses our thirst for discovery and desire to escape, travel and explore other lands, pushing back the frontiers of the mind to their highest levels! Those with personalities influenced by this planet will often be tempted to emigrate and sometimes choose activities that will take them far away from their birthplace, blossoming as soon as they take to the road… elsewhere! Jupiter opens doors and essentially endows us with heaven's graces, feeding our imaginations and often unleashing the opportunities that will write our destiny…. Jupiter inspires philosophy and gives meaning to the information conveyed by Mercury, organising it into a coherent whole. It brings wider vision to the intellect.
We should be careful, however, not to abuse the power conferred by the planet in all its possibilities and similarly in all its excesses, in order to feed our megalomaniac tendencies, waste our vital energy, or adopt bulimic behaviour. We should take care not to be dragged along in the wake of those who, devoured by ambition, are in danger of being called to order one day by Saturn, who will come along and punish their transgressions… and make them face up to their responsibilities by depriving them of everything!
On the physical front, Jupiter represents liver function and the quality of blood circulation, and is associated with the hips and thighs…He stimulates our enthusiasm, increases our generous impulses tenfold. If we manage to channel the lively forces he instinctively generates, he will enable us some day to attain our ideals, whether terrestrial, worldly or ultimately… divine.
From November 8, 2018 (and until December 2, 2019) Jupiter in Sagittarius will stimulate our idealism and if we manage to keep our feet on the ground (at least one), this giant of the zodiac could lead us on the path of personal and collective fulfillment, both material and spiritual! We can, thus, hope to definitively come out of a crisis which has weighed on us since 2008 and to finally regain a second wind. The country's finances could come out of the red and the upward fluctuations of our personal accounts will boost our morale! It's up to us, however, to avoid errors in our aim and' unrealistic estimates!
The dark side of Jupiter sometimes pushes us to exaggerate our potentials and our chances! We should, however, approach and unfold this new cycle boosted by renewed optimism and perhaps prepared to seize some great opportunities, on the fly, to open new avenues and to embark without further delay on new adventures!
Dear Sagittarius, the arrival of Jupiter in your solar sign
is generally a sign of good fortune and invites you to showcase yourself, develop new potentials, or express your talents more openly. No question, therefore, to stay in the background but instead you will be center stage and shine with all your fires, without exceeding the limits or feed dreams that are too unrealistic!
From December 2, 2019, Jupiter will migrate (until December 19, 2020) in Capricorn! Between the expansive nature of this giant of the zodiac and the austere side of this sign, we can hardly hope for elective affinities! Social contacts may be a little restrained and all optimism is a little smug ... and dampened! It will undoubtedly be time (and the general cosmic background will expressly invite us to do so) to make a return on ourselves and to privilege reflection on what is substantial rather than smug enthusiasm.
Enough to make the decisions that are necessary (and for some as early as January 2020) that will allow us, if not to enjoy ourselves, to initiate profound societal changes and indispensable and unavoidable turns! A meeting, therefore, a priori, constructive between the sign and the planet even if it suggests a period that is not necessarily very ... fun!
