Jupiter finally made its way into Sagittarius on November the 8th. This most likely caused a shift in the way you felt and has you quite stirred up at the moment.
During this time, you are going to be experiencing a lot of change and growth. You will finally be free to express yourself. Jupiter for those who might not know, is a very powerful planet that opens both our minds and our hearts. It allows us to take a peek at this place we call home from a different perspective and when partnered with Sagittarius, brings forth greater understanding.
You are going to become more accepting and work to embrace your own differences as well as the differences of others. Jupiter comes home when he enters Sagittarius and the two work very well together. You will be completely unable to sit still, as there will be a lot going on during this time. In some cases, you may feel overwhelmed.
Sagittarius is represented by the Archer, who aims his arrow high and far. With Jupiter in Sagittarius, we are encouraged to connect with our own dreams and futures and realize what we can do in the present moment that will help us reach our ultimate goals. There is a risk, however, of aiming so high that we establish goals that are, in fact, out of reach. DO dream big — even bigger than usual — but remember that if you want your dreams to come true, you can’t ignore the realistic steps you’ll need to take to attain them.
Still, during Jupiter’s transit through Sagittarius, the journey is more important than the ultimate destination. It’s a great feeling to accomplish what we set out to do, but it’s the experience that teaches us. Even if we never actually reach our goal, we will learn invaluable lessons along the way.
There’s an extra emphasis on expanding our minds through the exploration of not only new places, but new concepts — learning about different philosophies, religions, and cultures helps us better understand our own place in the world. We are searching for ultimate truths during Jupiter in Sagittarius, but we must be careful that this doesn’t backfire. We can become so addicted to being right that it can lead to prejudice and judgment. We’re being invited to understand other points of view, not to become so entrenched in our own religious and political viewpoints that all others become wrong or invalid. The more self-righteous we feel, the more we limit ourselves — which is the exact opposite of the growth and open-mindedness that Jupiter in Sagittarius is meant to bring to our lives.
Jupiter in Sagittarius isn’t about honing in on one thing, but about exploring and experiencing all the flavors of the world. Think bigger, reach further, and open wider, and Jupiter in Sagittarius will bless you with more than you could imagine.
What do you think this period might hold for you? Realistically you get to choose the direction in which things go. Work with these energies and get the most that you can out of them.
