Expansion, travel, learning…
This is quite a shift in energy from the more introspective Jupiter in Scorpio, whose key tasks included unearthing our unconscious desires, fears, passions and issues of power. Whereas with Jupiter in Scorpio, the expansion involved a depth journey down into Hades realm, Jupiter in Sagittarius takes us up into the sky realms of travel, knowledge, belief systems, possibilities…Very much at home in its own sign, Jupiter in fiery Sagittarius is more about size and possibilities, than detail and truth.
In relationships, the core themes that are likely to arise with Jupiter in Sag include:
1. It’s worth taking chances in relationships as everything feels possible
2. More and bigger is best
3. Travel, travel, travel…
4. Personal freedom, is more important than the limitations of commitment
5. There is no such thing as privacy
6. What I believe, is likely to be superior to what you believe!
7. Let’s study and learn together
8. Not being completely truthful, is not is not the same as lying!
9. Posting all our personal business on social media is great!
10. Distance is not a barrier…
With Mercury also in Sagittarius until January 25th, we may find ourselves blurting out more than we intend, which can be challenging for more sensitive souls. It’s probably not a good time to share personal confidential information with anyone we don’t fully trust. For anyone who has been waiting for the courage to express themselves, this is a great time to do it.
Jupiter returns to the same sign every 12 years, so the last time it was in Sagittarius was from Nov 25th 2006 – Dec 18th 2007 and every 12 years prior to that. It’s worth considering what was going in your relationship life at that time, as a further layer of these issues is likely to come to the fore now.
You are more likely to connect with the above themes in your relationships if Jupiter is aspecting your Ascendant/Descendant, Mars or Venus, or travelling through the 5th or 7th houses in your natal and/or composite chart. MG
