THE JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS 2018 TRANSIT SERIES
Thursday 7:38 a.m EST time, November 8th Jupiter says goodbye to the often dark, mysterious, secretive watery depths of Scorpio and begins his 13-month trek through Sagittarius. Now he exclaims I can stop wearing these dark colors and glow some fire color. Jupiter is extremely powerful in this sign because this is his rulership.
Jupiter's move into Sagittarius (can) bring gifts of abundance and positivity along with camaraderie, faith, hope, and optimism. Spiritual enlightenment on a higher plane is also Jupiter's domain along with traditional higher learning such as colleges, foreigners and travels to far away places are all his cup of tea. And............................ yes in-laws, whom else can deal better with them than jovial, fun-loving Sagittarius.
The above mentioned are the positive traits of Jupiter that will be bestowed upon whichever area (house) Sagittarius rules in your horoscope (maybe). The thing about real astrology is just like night and day, black and white, up and down there are two sides to every astrological event according to sign position and house. This is a great time for the area Sagittarius rules in your horoscope because Jupiter rules Sagittarius and is more than at home here.
Or .........this could be not so great a time as it depends on which house Jupiter is located in and how Jupiter is contacting other planets in your horoscope as well as the other transiting planets. I know it's a lot to take in so I'm going to break it down into a series.
This brings me to the downside of Sagittarius and Jupiter in that it can summon the worst traits of Sagittarius, being dogmatism,(extreme political and religious views especially)No, the political wrangling is not going away it may indeed intensify and/or come to a head. That's another negative trait of Jupiter blowing things out of proportion, everything is huge with Jupiter, just think big and he's your guy. Ex. Uranus and Mars conflict in the heavens and start a hurricane, Jupiter is contacted from them both and he turns into a devastating hurricane with tornadoes across half the country. Included in this rundown is overconfidence, waste, and extravagance, too much of a good thing, and luck that eventually runs out. Just like Santa Claus bringing gifts, if Santa eats too much he's not fitting down that chimney and the holiday is canceled, delayed for many (see that's big again). The saving grace of Jupiter is Unlike known malefic planets like Pluto, Saturn, and Uranus, even the negative aspects of Jupiter don't hurt as bad but they still can lead to a downfall if you practice the aforementioned negative attributes of Jupiter.
In my Jupiter Series, we will go through each house and what it brings to each. We will aspect Jupiter to each natal planet it's touching, especially the lights and personal planets (Sun, Moon, Ascendant, Venus, Mars, and Mercury). As an added treat we will explore Jupiter's aspect to your partner's planets also and what it means in karmic form. Yes, that's a lot, (going big it's Jupiter) you might accidentally learn (higher knowledge) something
