Jupiter the planet of good luck and expansion returns home after 12 years to its own sign, Sagittarius, on November 8, 2018.
This is significant because when a planet is in its home sign, its influence is amplified. Jupiter is a powerful agent of manifesting. It brings expansion, risk, and rewards. Jupiter is a high roller, a gambler, a carpe diem you only live once kind of energy. Jupiter inspires with potential and promise.
To help you work with this powerful, lucky energy, I recorded intuitive messages for each sign here: Jupiter in Sagittarius Year Ahead Forecast.
With Jupiter in Sagittarius 2018-2019, luck comes most often when you expand your perceptions beyond their original borders, when you get out of your comfort zones and “reach out and touch faith” (as Depeche Mode sang in the 1980s).
Jupiter in Sagittarius is, in a way, a test of faith in whatever area of your astrological chart Jupiter is transiting.
Jupiter’s Faith is about trusting in the good that is coming your way even if you don’t see concrete evidence of that good immediately.
Jupiter’s test is often delivered in the form of a gift but often something or someone must be let go of, first, so you can receive that gift. Sometimes Jupiter’s gift comes in the form of a significant teacher entering your life, since Sagittarius rules wisdom, philosophy, spiritual matters, and teachers!
There is often a karmic soul recognition when you meet this individual who has come to spread light on your path, to help us move forward happily, sincerely, and hopefully. Some truths may be spoken by this individual, truths that in the past you may have had a hard time hearing, but delivered via Jupiter’s emissary, you understand.
And when you understand, you heal. And when you heal, you open your heart to optimism. And when you are optimistic, amazing synchronistic events happen. Opportunities knock. Doors open. Jupiter delivers on his promises.
If you take a risk to follow your bliss, Jupiter often grants you gifts, wisdom, and contentment.
Interestingly, in 2019, three planets will be in their own sign: Saturn in Capricorn, Jupiter in Sagittarius, and Neptune in Pisces.
