Jupiter transits last for about a year, and we have been feeling its movement through the sign of the Scorpion since last October. As I said in this blog post, Jupiter’s exit comes with the parting gift of rebirth. We have been laboring through the year folks, purging, shedding, releasing, and pruning, all for the sake of being born anew.
Jupiter rules Sagittarius in Astrology, and so this is somewhat of a homecoming for the planet of luck and fortune. Sagittarius the Archer is known for always aiming high toward a more expanded worldview, philosophy, and spiritual wholeness. This sign is the ultimate wanderer and truth-seeker, traveling far and wide to obtain meaning and fulfillment in life.
Jupiter's transit of Scorpio begged the need for us to leave behind what kept us from broadened pursuits and ambitions. We had to dig deep to face what held us back and left us unevolved. As Jupiter moves through Sagittarius, motivation and inspiration will be restored. We are no longer carrying dead weight. We can now fly, and leap, and soar!
This new year-long transit inspires hope in a dense 2018. As we continue to navigate difficult times in the world, Jupiter in Sagittarius will remind us of ourselves – why we are here and what we have to contribute to the greater good. This will be an experience of discovery and journeying. Go ahead and leave your comfort zone. We will all be better for it.
