Jupiter into Sagittarius | galloping into our future, starting from an older wiser position, growing younger, shaping the energies for the quest ahead, the ducks start lining up, the dangers of too much too soon, that new door to the left where'd that door come from?

At 7:38AM EST Jupiter glides up from the depths of Scorpio and soars into the clear blue skies of Sagittarius. The energy is rising within us. It can be disconcerting and toss us off balance. But it will feel good, too.

We are not the same people we were in October 2017 when Jupiter plunged off the high board into our subconscious - looking under the covers, into our past, behind closed doors, at our bank balances, in between the sofa cushions.

Every journey through Scorpio is a journey of death and rebirth.

After any Scorpio cycle there is a part of us that is NEW. We have transformed. We have explored the depths for the last year and now we are just wanting fresh air, new adventures ... and freedom. 

Sagittarius is a fun-loving sign (ruled by Jupiter and ruler of our collective 9th house) - Sag rules travel, freedom, adventure, foreigners and what is foreign to us, immigration, legal issues, the judicial system, higher education, politics, the media, good luck, faith, religion, the church, weddings, optimism, truth seekers, boldly going where no man has gone before, the quest  -

it also rules carelessness, taking shortcuts, thinking we are right, making assumptions, throwing pink paint on problems and hoping they will go away, overconfidence, impatience and superficial bullshit.

Many of these themes will expand in the collective consciousness throughout the next year. There is likely to be some big news event with these themes over the next few days.

Sagittarius is a fire sign like Aries and Leo.

Fire signs like action - their reasons for taking action are different though. Aries energy wants to climb the mountain, first because it's there and second because there is a competition going to see who can get there first.

Leo energy wants to climb the mountain because they have heard there is a film crew waiting at the summit :)

Sagittarius energy wants to climb the mountain to see what the hell it feels like to climb a mountain and how it feels to reach the top. They want the adventure; they want the quest.

(they could be unprepared and throw their back out 100 yards from the summit, too, then they will turn their convalescence into a party for the sherpas and make THAT the adventure)

Some part of our life can surely use a little adventure. The real gift of Sagittarius is the freedom to be who we really are - how are we going to use this gift?

Just keep in mind this is a year long transit (although with a powerful kick-off that many people could be already feeling) and we are only in the first few hours.

Our view broadens now.

Why didn't I see that thing/idea/solution/twenty dollar bill in my coat pocket before?

Overall this will be a wonderful transit of expansion - Jupiter, the Santa Claus of the zodiac, fat and happy in his home sign - and he hasn't been home in 12 years!

(what was happening in your life twelve years ago? how far have you come? in multiple ways through multiple aspects we are all going home now, too)

We will talk about this alot as we move through it.

Of course, I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't remind everyone that Jupiter - the kids should leave the room for this part - like Santa Claus, is entirely made up of hot air. 

It's why we overspend/overeat/over-everything during Sagittarius season.

It's why no matter how thoughtfully we have created that holiday wish list - and yes, I can see your totally adorable swirly thingamajigs, smiley faces and those hearts dotting your i's - we don't always get exactly what we want.

Santa doesn't always deliver.

(Saturn does though and he is home in Capricorn, so will help us ground this thing in something real and practical and tangible AND he will make us work for it)

With Jupiter things can look better than they actually are.

We could fly too high too fast.

Issues could seem bigger than they actually are now, too. Or maybe we are just expecting too much. Problems and delays may cut into our plans - remember Venus is still retrograde and about to pass that baton to Mercury for HIS retrograde IN SAGITTARIUS and SCORPIO (!), so maybe the plans were just too BIG to begin with? Things don't have to be all or nothing. It could feel like it though.

Keep in mind Vesta's seat at the table with Pluto in today's chart, so whatever we are doing - if it isn't something we can devote ourselves to - we are going to need to get up at night and keep the fires burning and if it isn't worth losing sleep over and adding a few gray hairs - if it isn't worth all of that, we are going to need to make an adjustment.  

Our time/resources are valuable. Treat them as such.

We are probably going to be back and forth for a few more weeks - we want this, no we want that or we just don't know what the hell we do want.

That's OK. That's what retrogrades are for!

xo all

If you didn't get those New Moon intentions set yesterday - fear not! After the Moon moves into Sagittarius this afternoon (the Moon is void until 1:59PM EST so not before then) she will conjunct Jupiter - Sag's ruler and the Moon will be waxing (growing) making today/tomorrow an excellent time also!

This is a powerful manifestation portal so set specific affirmations only if you are certain. You don't want to get what you want and then take a good look at it in the bright light of day and say, "what the hell was I thinking?".

I like to set mine with a trust that life has my back. Because life does.

Maybe try some of these:

1. I use the power of my thinking to inspire and delight my soul
2. I am always at the right place at the right time doing the right things
3. I let go and let God
4. The universe protects and inspires my strong and healthy foundation.
5. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
6. I spread my roots far and wide. I welcome the fruits of my labor and the sweet gifts of life.
7. Wealth. Success. I am a money magnet.
8. I am healthy. I am happy. I am grateful.
