We are entering a time of expansion. On Nov 4, 2019, Jupiter, the bright planet of grace and inspiration, will enter sidereal Sagittarius, prompting spiritual growth and personal expansion. From now until Nov. 20, 2020, Jupiter will be in its own sign (Mulatrikona), shining a visionary light into the cosmos.
Jupiter’s transit will catalyze our soul’s evolution, taking us to a higher level of consciousness and a deeper experience of our divine nature. In Vedic astrology, Jupiter is known as “guru,” which means teacher. The planet Jupiter is a wise teacher of dharma, truth and compassion, and its knowledge nourishes and enlightens whatever it touches.
Jupiter is also the giver of luck and good fortune, which means that its positive effects will be felt in the material as well as the spiritual realm. If you are starting a business, launching a creative project, or trying to conceive — Jupiter also rules fertility — chances are you will find success in the next year. In fact, Jupiter is also known as jivakaraka, “the life giver” or “vessel of life.“
Depending on the position of Jupiter in your birth chart, its transit will affect you in different ways. To find out more about Jupiter’s unique effects on your journey, book a one-on-one Vedic Astrology reading with me. — Find out what people are saying here.
While Jupiter’s gifts are plentiful, the first months of his transit could prove turbulent. Jupiter’s influence will be on unstable ground until mid-November, 2019, when he passes the first 3º20 of Sagittarius. As Jupiter moves from Scorpio to Sagittarius, he crosses the “karmic knot” in the star of Mula. Mula is the home of Kali , the goddess of liberation, and Nirriti, the goddess of dissolution and chaos. No matter what arises, know that Jupiter is guiding you on the right path.
Since 2017, when Saturn entered Sagittarius, it has been limiting Jupiter’s expansive potential. As a result, polarization and intolerance have increased on a global level. This is due to the no-nonsense influence of Saturn, which has dulled Jupiter’s altruistic sparkle. That will change when Saturn transits out of Sagittarius in January, allowing Jupiter to deliver the full spectrum of his gifts.
For those of us who are running dasha cycles of Jupiter, or who have key natal planets in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s influence may be apparent in other ways. Book a one-on-one Vedic Astrology reading with me to find out more.
