Jupiter, the planet of faith, wisdom, and the desire to experience the world beyond ourselves, comes home to Sagittarius. Over the coming year, we’ll be inspired to explore, focus on our education, and delve into life’s philosophical questions. If Jupiter’s time in Scorpio represented our journey through our emotional shadows, then it’s in Sagittarius that we emerge into the light.
Sagittarius is a sign that shapes how we see the world. It describes our sense of right and wrong as well as our moral compass. Many things can shape how we see the world — philosophy, religion, education. So with Jupiter in Sagittarius, we’re naturally seeking things out. And with a world in chaos, how do we make sense of things? What rules or laws or guiding principles do we need to abide by?
Keep in mind that Jupiter’s time in Sagittarius, like any other sign, will show us the highs and the lows of its expression. The shadow side of Sagittarius is fundamentalism as well as an inability to see things from the perspective of others. Jupiter gives us more of whatever sign it’s in and Sagittarius is higher education, the law, the courts, and religion.
That said, be open to new experiences. Travel. Be a pilgrim. Read all the books you can get your hands on. Recalibrate your compass. Wander. Jupiter will be in Sagittarius from November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019.
