Hi, Everyone,

There is a huge planetary shift occurring this week.  Jupiter, the luckiest and biggest planet of the solar system, will enter the sign of Sagittarius on November 8, 2018, where it will tour through December 3, 2019.  Jupiter takes approximately twelve years to orbit around the sun, and it is the traditional ruler of the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius.  

Jupiter expands whatever sign it is in and helps to bring opportunities to those born under the sign it occupies; but, it loves being in its home sign of Sagittarius the most. Jupiter represents benevolence, travel, appreciation of different cultures and different ideologies, higher learning, learning empirically and through life experience, kindness, generosity, and humor. 

When Jupiter transits in Sagittarius, it brings all of these themes more to the forefront.  Not everyone has major angles or planets in Sagittarius, but everyone will benefit from Jupiter being in the sign that it rules. This will give everyone much needed optimism, hope, and joy.

It is great that Jupiter will be in its home sign of Sagittarius for a little over a year, although it does make challenging aspects with Neptune in Pisces.  Jupiter represents the vision, and Neptune represents the dream.  In Ancient Astrology, Jupiter was the ruler of Pisces; In Modern Astrology, Jupiter rules Sagittarius.  

Jupiter and Neptune make three challenging influences in 2019, and this could be a case of wanting to indulge and tune out more than usual.  Jupiter can be a very indulgent planet, in which case nothing is ever enough. This is doubly true when Jupiter is in its own sign of Sagittarius, which is definitely a sign where the glass is half full.

Neptune can make things feel very vulnerable, so the two together can be very indulgent.  The two working in tandem can also be very disillusioning.  Jupiter is optimistic, and Neptune could dissolve that hope if seen through jaded lenses.  Jupiter in Sagittarius forms a challenging square to Neptune in Pisces exactly on the following dates: January 13, 2019 at 14 degrees of Sagittarius and Pisces; June 16, 2019 at 18 degrees of Sagittarius and Pisces; September 21st, 2019 at 17 degrees of Sagittarius and Pisces.  This is a great energy for creative work, but do not take things too seriously or personally.  Shield yourself against getting jaded. 

I will outline how Jupiter in Sagittarius benefits each sun sign based on Solar Astrology. Even though this is not based on your specific chart, you can glean how it impacts your sign and see how Jupiter will help you expand from November 8, 2018 through December 3, 2019.

If you know your time of birth, look to see what house Sagittarius rules, and if you have any planets or critical angles in Sagittarius. That is the area of your chart where you are receiving the most benefits and expansion from lucky Jupiter in the upcoming year.

It is fun to see how Jupiter impacts your sun sign, as that can also hold clues as to the ways you will grow in the year ahead. You do not need your time of birth for that. Write down some wishes and intentions this week and focus on what you want to improve, grow, and expand in the upcoming year. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, and it will help all of us get some celestial assistance to improve our lives.



This past year year, you had Jupiter in your sign, and it brought a lot of a lot of self expansion, self growth, travel, and relationship opportunities. You have begun many new things since 2017.  Saturn, the planet of karmic lessons, was in Scorpio from October 6, 2012 until September 18, 2015, and Jupiter shed a light on the unhealed wounds and blocks on which the Saturn in Scorpio story was so focused.  Every Scorpio I know has experienced growth and opportunity, but this Jupiter cycle expanded the intensity, so it was a mixed bag and a very intense year.

Jupiter is now lighting up your second house of income and value. Your self expansion and self growth continues, and this is a year in which you really find your worth.  You have the potential to earn a lot more money this upcoming year, and this a year where you will feel even more valued.
