What’s It All About?
We’ve been in a huge extended period of arrival to an entirely different world than what we’ve previously known. Life's evolutionary impulse has been building its crescendo of cosmic forces especially since 2020. Now we’ve reached an elongated plateau, or peak of energies. There is still a great deal of suspense left hanging in the air that may linger for a time! Look to 2025 and 2032 to be pivotal years for major developments. What we've been experiencing is small change compared to what's ahead.
Jupiter is a massive planet and rules the 9th house (the natural house of Sagittarius) representing higher education, philosophy/ideologies and world travel.
The house where Jupiter is located in the zodiac is where a tremendous amount of change and improvements can happen for the better of society in general, but especially for higher mind and educational endeavors.
Jupiter entered the sign of Taurus on May 16th of this year. He is about to form a sextile with Saturn, the other social planet, that will bring additional opportunities for society at large. This sextile will be active through June 2023, then again at the end of 2023.
Jupiter is also tracking Uranus (the planet of revolutionary change). The two planets conjunct about every 14 years bringing opportunities for sudden advancement. Jupiter and Uranus will conjunct in Taurus on April 20-21 2024. This is a one-off (only happens once) so make the most of it. Since Taurus rules the financial sector this could spell a huge windfall (unless you have stressful contacts in your personal chart).
Since Jupiter and Uranus are such big players in our galaxy their energies for increasing profits related to Taurus 2nd house matters are notable until 2024 when Jupiter leaves Taurus and enters Gemini (May 17, 2023 - May 31, 2024).
The two planets come close together all of September of this year, but due to Jupiter's retrograde (September 4th) begin to move further apart until the end of December and then January when they will begin to move closer again as first Jupiter then Uranus station Direct in Taurus.
Another way this Conjunction could play out is huge sudden and dramatic earth events like earthquakes and volcanoes.
Sagittarius Full Moon
A whole new world can be opening up not only for Sagittarius natives, but everyone on planet earth. Expansive and ebullient energies are at work on both personal and global levels.
The Sagittarius Full Moon brings a huge wave of expansive growth to all things related to Sagittarian themes. Since Jupiter just entered the sign of Taurus, the focus of this expansion will be related to 2nd house energy.
Optimism is a hallmark of Jupiter’s expansive energy. There is nothing that can block Jupiter’s positive picture of the world.
A certain mania can result from Jupiter’s sometimes over the top enthusiasm. The grounded influence of Saturn can be missing. However, since Jupiter is within orb of a Sextile to Saturn in Pisces the opportunities available can have far reaching and long-lasting results.
Saturn will station Retrograde on June 17th perhaps offering a return of an opportunity.
As you can tell Jupiter and Saturn (the builders of society at large) are polar opposites. The two of them together bring about change in the social sphere. These two energies must be balanced for them to work together productively. Given their current locations in the zodiac and their harmonious Sextile alignment much good can result from these two planets meeting.
The pair will be Sextile by element all year and come within orb of exact Sextile at the end of 2023. So, opportunities for advancement will remain strong in these two areas of your life where Jupiter and Saturn are located. As always, much depends upon what kind of contacts the energies playing out are making in your natal chart.
Sagittarians are lovers of humanity! As one of the mutable signs of the zodiac and ruler of the 9th house, Sagittarians are adaptable and can easily adjust to circumstances more readily than most other zodiac signs. This is a real plus for them. They know how to get along.
They love foreign travel and relish in differences and like to clown around. Variety is the spice of life to Sagittarians. They love higher learning, writing and publishing, and exploring a philosophy of life. Sagittarius wants to know what makes life tick. What makes the world go around?
Communication and exploration are also strong themes for Sagittarius. Known for their emotional intelligence, Sagittarius natives easily connect with others from all strata of society and make friends easily.
As Sagittarians like to be agreeable and have everyone like them, they can often say yes when, upon further consideration, they might wish they said no. They can over commit themselves and lack follow through. Time management can be a real problem for them. They may be unrealistic about what they can accomplish in a given amount of time.
What’s Up in Your Chart?
Tips for How the Sagittarius Full Moon Can Affect You Personally.
Everyone has the Sagittarius Full Moon influence in one, or more areas of their chart. Here are a few areas of your chart where you can experience the Sagittarius Full Moon influence:
- Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius whose natural placement in the zodiac is the 9th house which represents higher education, foreign travel, beliefs, religion, ideology and the higher mind. Jupiter is the old ruler of Pisces (modern ruler is Neptune which governs the 12th house of the unconscious mind). By all indications what transpires now has far reaching ramifications on very deep psychic levels. Our attitudes from the past are being expanded and potentially exploded. How much will past ideologies, beliefs and attitudes influence you and society at large in the future?
- What personal planets are located in your 9th and 12th houses? Do you have any easy flowing, or hard aspects to these houses from one or more of your personal planets, or points?
- What house is your natal Jupiter located in your personal astrology chart? Is there a harmonious, or stressful contact between your Jupiter and your 9th (or 12th) house?
- As Jupiter is transiting the sign of Taurus ruled by Venus, all themes related to Venus (love, pleasure, money, values), along with the usual Jupiterian themes will be greatly energized.
- Saturn's Stationary Retrograde in Pisces on June 17th may help to jumpstart things, perhaps returning a missed opportunity. It’s time to review society’s foundations, rule of law, regulations, status quo, corporate and governmental structures, etc.
Your emotions can feel quite unsettled during this time. The moon moves quickly through each sign and house, so whatever happens though it may leave a lasting impact upon your psyche the emotions will be transient. Best to let your emotions settle before taking action that may have long standing results.
