Jupiter in Sagittarius

Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, is associated with generosity, expansion, travel, higher education, religion, philosophy, and belief systems. Generally speaking, the area of your natal chart that transiting Jupiter is traveling through at any one time is more likely to see some benefits, gains, and good luck.

On the 8th of November 2018, Jupiter will move from being in the sign of Scorpio to Sagittarius. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, so this is a sign placement in which Jupiter is very comfortable. Jupiter will remain in Sagittarius until the 2nd of December 2019.

The astrological house/s in the sign of Sagittarius in your natal chart is where you need to look to find out what areas of your life may benefit from this Jupiter in Sagittarius transit. Jupiter changes signs about every 13 months and after this transit, will not be back in this part of your chart again for another 12 years.

If you don’t know where Sagittarius is in your natal chart, fear not, I have a breakdown of what it means for all the astrology signs below (although it works best when you know your Ascendant sign).

An article I wrote a while ago when Jupiter was in Libra, demonstrates in more detail why knowing your natal chart details gives you so much more information than just knowing your star (Sun) sign.

As with all signs, Jupiter has its good, and its not so good sides. Sometimes it comes down to how you look at the situation too (Jupiter ruling philosophy). Sometimes Jupiter, by virtue of its expanding nature can bring too much of a good thing, or even inflate a bad situation.

Jupiter retrogrades about once a year for approximately 4 months. During this time, we tend to be re-evaluating things of a Jupiter nature such as our personal moral compass. Jupiter will be retrograde from 10 Apr 2019 (24° Sag 21′) to 11 Aug 2019 (14° Sag 30′).

All times given above are Central Standard Time (CST).
