Jupiter’s Transit of Sagittarius: November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019
What Jupiter’s transit through Sagittarius means for you…
Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 8th, 2018 and stays in this mutable fire sign until December 2nd, 2019. See how this transit affects the signs of the zodiac later in the page. First, we’ll look into what Jupiter in Sagittarius means in general.
Jupiter’s effects are to expand our experiences, our knowledge, and our understanding. Jupiter represents optimism, growth, generosity, and abundance. In Scorpio, Jupiter expanded our awareness of our intimate relationships, personal power, and coping skills. Now, with Jupiter in Sagittarius, a new focus comes into play.
Jupiter’s transit through the sign that it rules, fiery Sagittarius, urges us to increase our cultural and spiritual awareness, to expand our higher minds, to broaden our experiences, and to have faith in the universe.
As Jupiter moves through Sagittarius, we deepen our interest in philosophical, and perhaps religious, thought, and determine what it is that gives us joy–what truly is important in our lives in the long run. We trust in something higher than us, and this gives us a sense that we are doing the right thing and that we are spiritually protected–“things will work out” is the overall attitude now.
Because Jupiter’s nature is extravagant, we must guard against “too much.” Moderation doesn’t come naturally to either Jupiter or the signs that it rules. We may feel over-confident to the point of recklessness, or we may slip into a “know it all” stance if this energy is mishandled.
Sagittarius is a Fire sign. With a Fire sign Jupiter, we identify strongly with our own opinions, beliefs, and perceptions, and we may take it quite personally if others disagree with us! We create our own opportunities, and we are at your best when we are thinking in big terms, taking calculated risks, and displaying confidence. Jupiter in a Fire sign teaches us to embrace our more confident, brave, and outgoing selves. This is how we grow and expand.
With Jupiter in Sagittarius, we attract the best fortune when we are open-handed and generous, tolerant, and inspirational, and when we practice what we preach. We need only believe in ourselves and our goals, show our enthusiasm to learn and to teach, and look at the big picture. We may find particular success in travel, education, teaching, sports, publishing, and foreign cultures.
Jupiter’s zeal can supersede moderation at times. It can expand the more negative qualities of a sign, just as it can expand the positive traits. Its zeal and enthusiasm are well-intentioned, but it can blind us to our immoderate behavior. More specifically in Sagittarius, we can be reckless, overconfident, self-righteous, and blind to practicalities. We might also put speaking the truth above respect for or sensitivity to others at times.
However, the higher vibration of Jupiter seeks perspective. Jupiter’s perspective isn’t a detached, analytical, or detailed look at any given situation, but an overview–a look at the “big picture.” With Jupiter, ideally, we are able to rise above pettiness, mundane concerns, inconveniences, and the like.
Where Jupiter is currently transiting in your own chart is generally where you are inclined to find your “joy” at this stage in your development. This area of your life expands and improves in some manner. There is also a need for new tools to develop these areas of life. In order to develop, we need to pursue our goals with confidence and optimism, without going overboard.
Jupiter’s transit through fiery, adventurous, and virtuous Sagittarius urges us to seek knowledge, understanding, and truth. As Jupiter moves through Sagittarius, we learn and understand that we may be limiting ourselves if we stick to the same old, same old, and we instinctively want to venture out, do new things, meet new people, and learn new things. This is, in fact, a fabulous time for education, training, travel, and publishing. We’re encouraged to pull ourselves out of the mundane, at least from time to time, to nourish our spirits. The idea is that following tight or rigid schedules or planning ahead too carefully will slow down our growth.
Jupiter feels comfortable, authentic, and in charge as it transits Sagittarius. Even so, it’s not getting much help from the outer planets as it does. More on its aspects below.
This can be a time for taking up interesting studies or less formal but adventurous learning by inserting ourselves into new experiences. We may take a bigger interest in the unknown or unexplored as well as different cultures. Our faith carries us far. We want to move on, grow, expand, learn, and share.
During this Jupiter in Sagittarius cycle, we particularly value honesty, uprightness, justice, optimism, enthusiasm, truth tellers, whistleblowers, explorers, open-mindedness, faithfulness, adventurousness, and courage.
This sign can be curious and nomadic, and at times restless. Jupiter in Sagittarius is a time for making that move, taking that trip, or enrolling in that course — those things we may have meant to do but haven’t gotten around to doing yet. Areas of our lives that are (or seem) stagnant may be left behind now.
Health issues with Jupiter are usually related to excesses, while Sagittarius issues are often connected to the hips, thighs, arthritis, rheumatism, the spine and sciatic nerve, fevers, and breathing abnormalities. Reducing stimulants may be especially important during this cycle.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is opportunistic, mostly in the good sense of the word. It’s on the lookout for new opportunities and seeks to create opportunities for others. It loves to share, teach, and guide. This transit encourages us to reach beyond our usual thoughts, ideas, routines, and neighborhoods. We’re in search of new and inspiring ideas and adventures or experiences, preferring to learn as we do, firsthand.
This is a time for exploring our morals, ethics, principles, matters of freedom, and possible improvements and expansions that might benefit us or make the world a better place. We may find that trips or new experiences are especially refreshing during this cycle — more so than usual. Rewards seem to emerge as we move outside of our usual routines and bounds.
Jupiter not only likes to expand, but it also loves to learn, so when Jupiter is paired with Sagittarius, we may be more interested and enthusiastic about religion, ethics, and philosophy, as well as anthropology, the law, justice, travel, and geography. There can be a stronger desire to find the truth, the word, or something that helps us find more meaning. We may see more of these themes and topics in the media as we become more and more fascinated with Sagittarian energies.
Energetically speaking, Jupiter and Sagittarius are a wonderful match. While Jupiter performs well in its own sign, the potential problem of the transit of its own sign (and there are more than the usual in this position) is a certain myopia, stubbornness, or narrowness which, ironically, can threaten the very things that Sagittarius and Jupiter stand for. It’s important to avoid self-righteousness, especially, with this combination.
Aspects Jupiter Forms while transiting the sign of Sagittarius in 2018 and 2019.
The following are Jupiter’s transits to the outer planets that it makes while it’s in Sagittarius.
Jupiter semi-square Pluto on November 28th, 2018, at 4º Sagittarius 36′ (standalone) Jupiter sesquiquadrate True Node at 11º Sagittarius 51′ (standalone) Jupiter sesquiquadrate Uranus on January 9th, 2019, at 13º Sagittarius 36′ (first), then again on June 6th, 2019, at 19º Sagittarius 57′, and again on October 14th, 2019, at 20º Sagittarius 11′ (final) Jupiter square Neptune on January 13th, 2019, at 14º Sagittarius 23′ (first), then again on June 16th, 2019, at 18º Sagittarius 43′, and again on September 21st, 2019, at 17º Sagittarius 00′ (final) Jupiter quincunx True Node on March 24th, 2019, at 23º Sagittarius 55′ (first), then again on June 24th, 2019, at 17º Sagittarius 43′, again on September 10th, 2019, at 17º Sagittarius 00′ [this will occur again in the sign of Capricorn on October 29, 2020 (final)]
As mentioned above, there is an unusual lack of flowing aspects. It helps that Jupiter is in its own sign, although it’s often acting on its own or fighting Neptune this year! Jupiter’s square to Neptune suggests a struggle with our expectations, faith, and dreams. This transit first occurs with exactitude in January, again in June, and finally in October of 2019, affecting this whole date range. We may be misled easily under this influence, whether by others or by our own unrealistic or inflated expectations. We may need to deal with the consequences of disorganization, extravagance, neglect, or exaggeration. The tendency for restlessness is magnified even further under this influence. Routine seems to be particularly unsatisfying now. This is a time when we easily take a detour from a practical path. It can also be a time when we are disillusioned by something (or someone). We need to watch carefully for a tendency to evade and avoid things, as well as for writing ourselves new beliefs or philosophies that justify this avoidance. There can be a lot of wandering, meandering, and lack of groundedness happening with this influence. We might have troubles setting boundaries for ourselves. There is a need to come down to earth from time to time. Some routines, discipline, regularity, and rhythms should be enforced to counteract this tendency. Spiritual inspiration is a potential, however, as we shed false beliefs, expectations, and paths.
Along the same timeline, Jupiter forms a minor challenging aspect to Uranus (Uranus and Neptune are semi-square), reinforcing feelings of restlessness if our dreams are no longer fulfilling or inspiring us. Watch for impractical ventures and unusual tangents with weak staying power.

at 12:32 AM Jupiter at 20 Sag 29 is biquintile True Node at 26 Can 29 Rx
Mar 7, 2019, at 11:33 AM Jupiter at 22 Sag 36 is semi-sextile Pluto at 22 Cap 36
May 9, 2019, at 6:29 AM Jupiter at 23 Sag 06 is semi-sextile Pluto at 23 Cap 06

Oct 17, 2019, at 1:45 AM Jupiter at 20 Sag 41 is semi-sextile Pluto at 20 Cap 41
Jupiter’s semi-sextiles to both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn serve to contrast the stark differences between Sagittarius and Capricorn already discussed, but also challenges us to work with both energies.
With the lack of flowing aspects, the following conjunctions of inner planets to Jupitercan help us pinpoint particularly opportune period for Jupiter in Sagittarius (times are Eastern):
The Sun aligns with Jupiter on Nov 26, 2018, at 1:33 AM (Sun 3 Sagittarius 56 conjunction Jupiter 3 Sagittarius 56). This can be the first time we really feel or see the energies of Jupiter in Sagittarius in our lives. Mercury (retrograde) aligns with Jupiter on Nov 27, 2018, at 5:27 PM (Mercury 4 Sagittarius 18 conjunction Jupiter 4 Sagittarius 18). Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius and aligns with both the Sun (an inferior conjunction) and Jupiter now. Mercury (now direct) aligns with Jupiter again on Dec 21, 2018, at 12:37 PM (Mercury 9 Sagittarius 34 conjunction Jupiter 9 Sagittarius 34). Our ideas are big, brilliant, and inspiring. Venus aligns with Jupiter on Jan 22, 2019, at 7:26 AM (Venus 16 Sagittarius 04 conjunction Jupiter 16 Sagittarius 04). Venus aligns with Jupiter for the first time and this generates good, warm, generous feelings. Venus aligns with Jupiter on Nov 24, 2019, at 8:33 AM (Venus 28 Sagittarius 12 conjunction Jupiter 28 Sagittarius 12).
Jupiter in Sagittarius (November 2018 to December 2019) and Business/Career Jupiter encourages a spontaneous, courageous approach to business. However, this comes at a time when Saturn in Capricorn — an overlapping transit — gives us an entirely different message. While Jupiter asks us to grow, expand, and believe, Saturn asks us to simplify, test, and question. We may need to use our better judgment on when to do what, although Jupiter would prefer we don’t plan too much ahead and instead leave some room for spontaneity, inspiration, and discovery! They’re both quite stubbornly and comfortably in their own signs, so they won’t want to compromise. However, there is one thing that Jupiter in Sagittarius and Saturn in Capricorn DO agree upon, and it’s that we need to be principled to succeed in business and career during current transits. It’s an important time for doing the right moral thing!
Jupiter in Sagittarius (November 2018 to December 2019) and Relationships/Love Jupiter in Sagittarius is not especially committed or content, and as such, relationships that leave us feeling wanting or that seem to suppress our desire to grow and improve can become hard to take during Jupiter’s transit of Sagittarius. Even so, we give others the benefit of the doubt during this transit, believing in one another more than usual. Truth and justice are most important to us while Jupiter is in Sagittarius and this, combined with strict Saturn in Capricorn, suggests that we may be less tolerant of lies and deception in our relationships than usual during this cycle. We might consider exploring, traveling, and learning together to improve our connections. We’re attracted to people who are spontaneous, bold, honest, brave, and enthusiastic.
Jupiter in Sagittarius Ephemeris 2018-2019 (Monthly)
Jupiter’s recent transits: In Aries (most recently, from June 2010 to June 2011), Jupiter encouraged us to make our own opportunities, to believe in ourselves, and to take charge of our lives.
In Taurus (from June 2011 to June 2012), Jupiter urged us to enjoy and appreciate what we already have and to adopt a patient approach to achieving our goals.
In Gemini (from June 2012 to June 2013), Jupiter encouraged us to learn as much as we could about the people around us, as well as to share and connect.
In Cancer (from June 2013 to July 2014), Jupiter motivated us to honor our intuition, emotions, families, and inner needs, and to build our support systems.
In Leo (from July 2014 to August 2015), Jupiter encouraged us to express ourselves confidently, to be generous and creative, and to find new ways to enjoy ourselves.

In Scorpio (from October 2017 to November 2018), Jupiter expanded our awareness of our intimate relationships, personal power, and coping skills.
Jupiter spends over a year (almost thirteen months) in Sagittarius. The last time Jupiter transited Sagittarius was from November 2006 to December 2007. What we started during this period is now enjoying a Jupiter return — it’s going through a rebirth, of sorts — so that it might blossom, increase, or require adjustments in order to grow further.
Before that period, Jupiter was in Sagittarius from December 1994 to January 1996, and from December 1982 to January 1984. If you have Jupiter in Sagittarius in your natal chart, then YOU are enjoying a Jupiter return.
Jupiter Transiting Sagittarius Horoscopes: What it Means for Each Sign
In a general sense, this is how Jupiter’s transit through Sagittarius affects the different Sun signs (and Ascendant signs):
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure grow and expand at a rapid pace. You are feeling more courageous and spirited as you sense that there is more “out there” for you to learn and take in. This transit is a happy one, although it can seem subtle since it runs so smoothly!
This is a time in your life when you don’t sweat the small stuff as much as you normally do. You see the broader perspective on life, and you generally feel supported, so that smaller inconveniences don’t stress you out quite as easily. Your positive outlook is notable during this cycle. Learn as much as you can now, in preparation for the next cycle beginning in December 2019 that puts your career on center stage. You’ll want to be prepared!
Your views on life in a broad sense are changing, growing, and maturing. Connections with faraway cultures, people, or a broader knowledge base can open up opportunities to grow personally. Teaching and sharing knowledge can be in strong focus. It’s a good time for publishing, writing, and media.
You might consider fine-tuning your talents and skills with higher education or experience during this thirteen-month cycle.
New learning experiences as well as “life” experiences (travel, adventures, contacts with others of a vastly different culture than yours, and so forth) are likely to emerge. Over the course of the coming year, you might have the opportunity to reach a broader audience. You might choose to learn a new language or take on other interesting studies.
This can be a time when you make friends in faraway places or who have vastly different backgrounds or perspectives than you and who enrich your life during this empowering cycle. You’re likely to enjoy opportunities to expand your experiences and to impress others. This influence often correlates with a time when you are more able to get away from the daily routine–more transportation options open, for example, or you have (or create) more free time to do so. Your ideals are higher than usual, guiding may be part of the picture, and your cultural and spiritual awareness increases. Others notice your more tolerant and broadminded nature. Confidence is the key–faith in the universe and in your ability to do the right thing instinctually will get you everywhere now. Believe!
Unfinished matters of the past may seem to hold you back from spreading your wings at times this year as Jupiter forms a square to Neptune. Jupiter feels entirely at home in this area of your chart, increasing the chances that you’ll do well in life departments related to the ninth house. This is particularly useful since Jupiter doesn’t pick up support from the outer planets along the way.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar ninth house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to December 2nd, 2019.
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, there is a wonderful new focus on your intimate world – a possible deepening of a relationship, or an increased understanding of your own inner workings. Your intimate life enlarges and expands, bringing you more joy and new discoveries.
During this cycle that lasts thirteen months (until December 2019), you learn to embrace inner change in order to feel more empowered. There may be more opportunities to find support, financial and/or emotional, but you should be wary of living on credit and borrowing too heavily from the future.
This influence is with you until December 2019, and it’s time to grab opportunities that help you to feel empowered and on top of your life. Conversations are deep and lead to discovery. Sexuality is richer. There can be benefits and support coming your way through others, whether it’s money refunded, an easier time getting loans or mortgages, a partner’s income increases, or you inherit something valuable. Combining your own resources, talents, and/or money with a partner can improve your own financial outlook.
Potential negatives: Taking on too much debt or relying too heavily on others for support. In late November especially, you would be wise to avoid excesses and watch for the accumulation of shared debt.
Additionally, sudden increases or overexpansion can cause you some personal stress, as you may feel a little overwhelmed at times.
Otherwise, it’s a strong period for opening yourself up to others and for feeling more confident about your own emotional depths. This is a period when you can quite successfully purge yourself of some of your inner demons, guilt, and buried psychological problems. Feeling backed or supported is wonderful! It enhances all sorts of other areas of your life by extension.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eighth house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to December 2nd, 2019.
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, your partnerships, relating abilities, and powers of negotiation begin to grow and expand. New partnership opportunities (yes, even plural) can arrive now, or the chance to bring fresh energy to an existing committed relationship emerges. Relationships entered into now are generally successful and happy — at least for the time being, they are mutually beneficial. Sometimes, this transit absolves an existing partnership, but if this is the case, it is likely to come as a relief, or it is a “blessing in disguise.” Meeting someone better for you at this point in your life may be a reason for this. Your ability to get along with others is enhanced as you are especially willing to compromise, and you are more appealing than usual. This influence will stick with you until December 2019.
You can negotiate more successfully, and, if applicable, win in legal matters. Legal matters or challenging relationship problems from the past can be resolved, and more casual disputes can be settled amicably as well. You may find yourself taking on the role of consultant or advisor, or you could benefit from help from same. Good publicity may come your way. If your career has you working with or before the public, you can safely expect increased popularity now, particularly if you do counseling or negotiating in your job. Relationships and partnerships benefit from expansive, warm energy, difficult relationships may be absolved, or successful new ones are entered into during this period.
For many of you, you are attracting people who want to help, who are on your side, and who take a keen interest in you.
Potential negatives: You may be attracting partners who are more concerned with freedom than with pairing, or who seem to be quite extravagant or full of themselves. There could be troubles associated with an existing partner’s extravagance or demand for freedom, and you might feel this more prominently in late November.
However, you’ll get a chance to work through conflicts of interests and overload throughout this period. For the most part, you are likely to enjoy an improved social life during this cycle. You learn a lot through your experiences and interactions with an important “other.” While there are problems to iron out, there is a motivating, ambitious feel to this time. The focus should be on strengthening, building, and developing your connections.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar seventh house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to Decemeber 2nd, 2019.
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, your work, daily routines, and health endeavors begin to expand, improve, and grow. This is a time when your work projects or duties improve, or you have increased opportunities for employment. You can be so confident in your ability to take on projects and endeavors, however, that you overload your plate, so do watch for that. However, this can be a rather magical time for your everyday life and health in many ways, and these areas of life have endured somewhat serious or difficult energy in recent years, so it can come as a nice relief. This influence is with you until December 2019.
During this transit, you find more joy in your work (as long as you don’t overload), self-improvement endeavors, and taking care of your health. If you provide a service to others, it is likely to prosper, largely because you’re enjoying it more. You are especially successful in hiring people to work for you, if applicable, and improvements to your working environment are likely. It can be easier than usual to find employment now. You may get a new job during this cycle or significantly improve an existing one. Work tends to be very available to you. You can be very focused on what really matters to get ahead, and recognition for your efforts may be forthcoming.
You are proud of how useful you are to others during this cycle. The more integrity and honesty you bring to your services, the more “payback” you will receive. Health is likely to prosper now, and medical procedures or programs, if necessary, are more likely to be successful. You are bringing fresh and original ideas to the work you do and the services you offer. Overload or the magnification of problems surrounding work can be experienced during this cycle. There is a tendency now to focus on the details of your work, and you might sometimes feel a little overwhelmed with monotonous tasks. There may be an inclination to put on some weight if you don’t watch your sweet tooth, but in most other ways, health can be a fortunate area of life as long as you’re not slack with it.
Your work might involve more services or the assisting of others during this cycle, and for some, health-related or healing professions can be attractive at this time.
Challenges may occur sporadically from December when there can be conflicts between pulls towards work and pulls towards a partnership, or you may suffer the consequences of taking on so much that you have trouble taking time for yourself.
However, for the most part, this is a good time for appreciating what you do, for developing your skills, for finding work, and for working relationships.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar sixth house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to December 2nd, 2019.
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, your creative, playful, and romantic side expands and grows. This is a powerful time for self-expression, new forms of entertainment, and romantic explorations.
Because there has been rather serious or even tough energy in these areas of life in recent years, this new cycle with you until December 2019 can come as a breath of fresh air. You need to have some fun with this!
Your focus turns to having a good time, enjoying life, and expressing yourself in freeing, rewarding ways. Your romantic and creative worlds begin to expand and grow. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and you are more willing to take some personal risks in order to do so.
Romantic opportunities tend to abound during this cycle; or chances to kick back and have fun, express yourself in unique ways, and pursue hobbies and entertainment are abundant. Creatively speaking, you can be filled with ideas and plans for realizing a dream.
This can be a fertile time on many levels, physically and emotionally. This position is associated with casual dating and exploring romantic possibilities.
Potential negatives: Excessive emphasis on, or attention to, having fun to the detriment of other life departments. You may especially need to come to a balance between attention to work and health routines and attention to romantic and creative needs, as both are strong pulls, particularly in December.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel supported and confident during this approximately year-long cycle. A lover, child, or friend can open your mind or heart to new experiences. Creatively speaking, you can be well-received and your audience is likely to expand.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fifth house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to December 2nd, 2019.
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, you benefit from a transit that increases your confidence in your family, living arrangements, and living conditions. While this is a domestic transit, relationships with anyone you feel especially connected with on an emotional plane can benefit. You are comfortable with yourself or your current position, and you may be building loving and secure connections with others, laying down roots, or getting even more comfortable. There can be special attention to the comfort and beauty of your home or a stronger desire to connect with your roots. You might also enjoy an improved ability to bounce back from problems, perhaps due to extra support.
Your inner world, family life, domestic activities, and domestic arrangements expand and grow. This comes at a great time since these areas of life may have been a little strained or perhaps a little serious in recent years.
Relations with family can be especially pleasant and supportive during this cycle that lasts until December 2019. You might move to a new home, likely a bigger one, or expand real estate holdings. Some of you can get a mortgage or support that allows you to expand your home base. Family itself can expand, or there might be an addition to your home. Some might take on a roommate for example, or bring more friends to their home. Others might pool resources with a partner and move in together. Entertaining in the home can be emphasized if that is something that makes you happy. Otherwise, you can experience a stronger sense of peace and privacy in your home life.
Generally speaking, more positive energy is brought to your domestic world, and long-standing problems with family might be put to bed. Do be careful about overextending yourself with home improvements, or larger accommodations that are beyond your means. Your personal life tends to overshadow your professional life or material activities during this cycle. Relationships with family can improve significantly now, although pre-existing problems might be magnified initially just to get everything out in the open.
This can be a good time to set up a home business or for home studies. On a more psychological level, confidence in yourself and feelings of security increase during this period.
Potential problems: Excessive money spent on home improvement, too much emphasis on the home to the point that other areas of your life suffer, or some unwillingness to expand your horizons. Avoiding or escaping responsibilities may be a problem from time to time. You may be wanting to please too many people, and overdoing things leaves you exhausted, as it seems there is never enough time and energy to meet all your needs.
For the most part, however, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. This is a time of nest-feathering. It’s a strong time for psychotherapy and purging as you are willing to look at the root of problems. There can be more power and resources available to you to establish yourself, especially through a home or property, but also for long-term business endeavors.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fourth house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to December 2nd, 2019.
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, you are ready to take on big projects. Your confidence in the future is very strong during this cycle that will be with you until December 2019.
During this transit, your communications increase and expand. Your ability or desire to express yourself is greater now, and your personal interests grow. Good fortune with vehicles, transportation, through siblings, and with the communications industry can be experienced during this cycle. You are more perceptive, and others are more receptive to your ideas. New opportunities to communicate can open up to you. This can be a busy period for learning and can also be a time of setting up a more connected home environment.
Potential negatives: Taking on too many daily activities, communications, new interests, and learning endeavors or studies can be a problem now. Don’t overload your plate. Attention to family and around the home can be strong at times this year and can prevent you from getting everything done. There can be a real tendency to want to do it all, forgetting your limits regarding time and energy.Taking on too many projects or becoming too entrenched in details can cause problems.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy more opportunities through your communications and contact with others during this cycle in 2018-2019. You might travel less and you’re busier locally. Your thinking is more upbeat, positive, and forward-looking, and so is the way you express yourself. In fact, this is an excellent time for improving your communication skills and your general attitude or mindset. There can be important opportunities through meetings, courses, teaching, and connections made in the neighborhood or through siblings. Some problems with siblings or neighbors could be put to rest now, although they might be magnified initially in order for problem areas to come out into the open and finally be resolved. You may be doing a lot of little jobs and your attention can spread over many tasks during this period.
You are more sociable, courteous, and reasonable in your communications, attracting opportunities to you. You may take on the role of a teacher, guide, or instructor during this cycle. You could find that transportation and communication options open up that make life a little (or a lot) more enjoyable during this pleasant period that spans thirteen months.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar third house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to December 2nd, 2019.
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, money, personal possessions, and self-worth expand, increase, improve, and grow. Your desire for security and comfort is hearty now, and you’ll pursue these things with more confidence and verve. You feel that you deserve more!
This is a strong time for buying long-term valuables. You are likely to make bigger decisions about your material resources during this period.
This cycle that will be in influence until December 2019 is strong for attracting more money from your professional endeavors and for expanding a business. You might also more easily attract support from others, but be careful if you are suddenly in the position to receive, for example, a credit line or sizeable loan – spend wisely. You should certainly watch for overspending and excessiveness.
Potential difficulties: Be on the alert for an attitude towards money that is careless. If you are accumulating personal possessions too quickly, this can lead to clutter and disorganization. If you’re overconfident about your ability to make money, then you might take foolish risks, such as borrowing too heavily from your future. Watch for over-indulgence. Be extra careful if lending or borrowing.
Otherwise, this is a good period for bringing a fresh, positive, and confident attitude towards your own self-worth and value, your earning ability, and your practical affairs, including work. There may be a significant bonus, gain, or win for some, or simply decreased financial stress. It’s important to be aboveboard in your dealings.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar second house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to December 2nd, 2019.
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, Jupiter is in your sign! This approximately one-year transit comes only every twelve years and serves to bring you out of your shell. You’re ready to take on the world. This is a time for exploring your needs and pursuing your dreams. Your personality, image, body image, and confidence in yourself expand to new levels with Jupiter in your sign until December 2019. You are seeing whole new possibilities, and your vision of life is panoramic.
If you’ve done your inner “work” well while Jupiter was transiting your solar twelfth house from October 2017 to November 2018, this can be an especially rewarding period. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world are growing exponentially. Freedom is something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it’s pursued without necessary attention to responsibilities.
You are more willing to enjoy new experiences and to rid yourself of those things that have been holding you back from truly living and owning your life.
There can be new projects begun now that have fabulous long-term potential. You may not yet know where you’re headed with them, but you’re certainly enthusiastic about beginning anew.
Expanding your horizons through higher learning or travel might also figure strongly. This is a time for aligning your behavior with what you believe is right. You are taking more “me” time, which is in fact very much due.
This transit occurs not very long after Saturn’s almost three-year transit of your sign, which was a little hard or stark at times, and you’re likely to feel quite a bit of relief of pressure now.
You are seeking out a new beginning – a fresh start, of sorts – and your desire to do right is especially strong. Work or projects that you have been working on in private or behind the scenes may now begin to pay off. There is less focus on serving and helping others now, perhaps because this is no longer as necessary (for example, a child can go off to college, or even the end of a problematic relationship that took up a lot of your energy and resources, from which you are now enjoying some level of freedom), and now you can put some of your personal interests on the front burner.
You won’t feel like sitting around during this period of your life. You are hungry for new experiences. Everyday stresses that may have frustrated you in the past now seem almost inconsequential, as your vision is lifted above the mundane. As such, your ability to manage stress and pressure increases. You are more tolerant in your attitude towards others, and you’re considerably more confident about expressing the playful, creative, and fun side of your personality.
Potential negatives: Weight gain, pompous behavior, restlessness, over-confidence, wastefulness, and excesses in general. See to it that these things don’t ruin an otherwise excellent period. As well, in your desire to start over, watch that you don’t blind yourself to responsibilities.
There might also be times, especially in late November, when your personal desires seem to conflict with earning or improving your income, or when you have troubles with self-discipline, budgets, and limits.
Otherwise, this can be a time of opportunity. You might choose to pursue a new channel for self-expression or mental interest with great passion. There can be a strong sense of release and freedom from previously limiting, rigid, or stifling conditions. You feel more natural and confident — in your own terms.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar first house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to December 2nd, 2019.
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, your spiritual world, compassion, private life, and tolerance expand and grow. Matters of the past are magnified in your life now. You tend to sort through the attitudes that serve you well, and the behaviors that need to go in order for you to grow and improve during this cycle that runs until December 2019.
This is generally a warm, protective cycle, although with Jupiter in the background in your chart, there may be some sense that you are not truly living or experiencing your life to the fullest, or that your joy in life is not as obvious to others. You may be exploring counseling, spiritual, or psychic talents. There may be some sacrifices involved in your personal relationships.
You may also be especially compassionate and empathetic. This can be a good period for volunteer work, or for work done behind the scenes, in private, or in the helping professions.
You’re sociable when the occasion calls for it, but during this cycle, you get a lot of extra enjoyment through solitude or times of laying low and keeping to yourself.
Potential challenges: Escapism. You might often be tempted to escape your everyday responsibilities and challenges, and should avoid reliance on drugs, drinking, or other “glamorous” forms of escape.
Jupiter’s influence is generally considered positive, and it is, ultimately. However, it acts to magnify the area of the chart that it affects, and at times it can be uncomfortable if you are having difficulties in this area, at least initially. In your case, if you are lonely or if you feel helpless, and if you have troubles facing your past, then this influence can heighten these issues. Ultimately, it’s for the good. The cosmos asks you now to surrender some of your attachments and to surrender to the unknown. Releasing control is necessary. Building your faith is the work you are doing now. While your tendency is to play a supportive role to others at this time, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries when it comes to your energy and time. There is stronger joy in being of service to others, but do be careful that you take care of yourself as well.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. Your perceptions heighten. Your ability to make sacrifices for others or for pursuits that you believe in increases and you build confidence in yourself as you help and support others.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar twelfth house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to December 2nd, 2019.
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, your connections to others, group associations, and friendships expand and grow. This influence will be with you until December 2019. This is a time for feeling considerably more confident about the future, and about your ability to set plans in motion that will allow you to accomplish some of your most cherished hopes and dreams.
It’s a time when you are filled with ideas about the future. You are planting seeds, so to speak, aiming to get started on projects that will reap rewards in the future. While this can be exciting, try not to take on more than you can handle. Your vision is quite optimistic, and there can be times when you might over-estimate what you are capable of doing down the road! However, one or two projects can be inspiring and also quite innovative.
With more contact with others, whether it’s about an expanded in-person group of connections or online, you are sure to come up with new ideas and to be inspired. Others can point you in new directions. There can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically. A new communications project can excite you and bring you into contact with interesting, helpful people. Business income should increase, particularly if you’re self-employed.
This can be a time of budding friendships and/or group involvements. New people may come into your life and seek out your friendship, or existing friendships may be refreshed or enhanced. Opportunities to advance or for new learning experiences can come through associates, friendships, and networking.
Potential negatives: Over-emphasis on activities that take you away from your practical responsibilities, too often.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your social life and friends base and to dream up exciting new paths for the future.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eleventh house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to December 2nd, 2019.
From November 8th, 2018, to December 2nd, 2019, Jupiter has climbed to the top of your solar chart. Your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation grow and develop. Your talents and skills are recognized now like never before (at least not in twelve years). All of the hard work you’ve put in begins to pay off and is rewarded – or at the very least, recognized. This influence will be with you until December 2019.
You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle. Although it’s a great period for expansion and recognition on a professional level, and you should take advantage of it, choose your projects carefully. Don’t take on more than you can handle. Watch also for gossip or mishandling of information. Be wary of situations that could get blown out of proportion or misunderstood.
This can be a time of significant progress in the outer world, a fortunate change in status, and increased recognition. Jupiter is in its own sign during this transit, which means it performs very well here.
Your hard work and effort can be recognized now. You could find yourself in a position that truly suits you. You take great pride in the work you do. For some of you, more prestige or a higher social standing may be part of the picture now. You can be quite charismatic in a position of authority or responsibility. Advancement in achieving an important goal can occur now. Your reputation may be enhanced in some significant way. You have more faith in your goals and aspirations during this period of your life.
This is a time when believing in yourself, your competency, and your ability to take the lead opens up opportunities for you. For the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your reach. You’re in a period in which you find considerably more joy in your work or feel particularly good about where you’re heading.
Your worldly or public status may change for the better. There could be a promotion, new job opportunities, a diploma, an important award, or marriage — something official.
This can be a time for coming into the limelight in a significant way. Authority figures or other influential people tend to look upon you favorably, see more potential in you, and readily help you along, so work it! Something might happen now, or circumstances are such, that your career (or professional interests in general) expands, and you find more joy and pleasure from your work. You could enjoy more freedom, or possibly even responsibilities, in your career. Either way, it’s a move for the better in your mind. Integrity, directness, and honesty will get you everywhere now. The more willing you are to put yourself in the limelight, the more positive the rewards–this is not the time to be a shrinking violet!
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar tenth house, from November 8th, 2018, to April 9th, 2019, and then from August 11th, 2019, to December 2nd, 2019.
