Jupiter is in Sagittarius at the moment and because of this a lot of people are feeling as if something out of the usual is coming. Since Jupiter will be going direct finally on the 11th after having been retrograding for so long, things are about to seriously take effect.
When Jupiter is present and moving forward within this sign, great things can happen. Since Jupiter rules over Sagittarius, their combined powers are a force to be reckoned with. The energies associated with them are positive and often bring forth abundance and limitless opportunities. While Jupiter is present in Sagittarius we will be offered a lot of chances to explore and perhaps grow in all the ways we’ve been meaning to.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is not a time to sit at home doing and thinking the same old things. Jupiter is the largest of all the planets and represents growth, big ideas, and grand experiences. There is no better time than Jupiter’s transit through Sagittarius to expand our horizons, both mentally and physically. We are no longer comforted by the safety of familiar places — we are itching for something else, and the more we try and the more we risk, the greater rewards we’ll find.
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.
You are well on your way to so much more and using the energies that are before you to your advantage can work wonders in your life. You are capable of so much more and you need to realize that as you go through your daily life in the coming weeks. Perhaps a new adventure is welling up within you.
