Jupiter is in Sagittarius November 2019 - November 2020

Jupiter has been in Scorpio since October 2018 and moves into Sagittarius on November 4th, 2019. The world is experiencing major challenges at this time and Jupiter’s transit in his own sign is very important for us all. 

What Does Jupiter Represent?

Jupiter’s energy expands our consciousness. On a material level he can bring wealth and power, on a spiritual level he is the Guru that guides us on our journey towards enlightenment.

Expansion and Dharma

Jupiter loves to learn, and he aims for high knowledge. In Vedic astrology, his own signSagittarius is represented by a bow and an arrow. In the greek mythology, Sagittarius is portrayed by a centaur, half horse and half man, who is shooting an arrow towards the stars. The stars express his wish to align with universal laws and dharma. 

Knowledge and Wisdom

Sagittarius enjoys sharing knowledge and ideals. This dynamic fire sign is the ninth sign and has similarities with the ninth house. Both Sagittarius and the ninth house are concerned with knowledge and dharma.

However, all signs have some negative expressions and this is also true of Sagittarius. When the energy of Jupiter is focused on lower egoic desires, the result can be overinflation and arrogance. Dharma can turn into adharma.


Jupiter’s one year transit in Sagittarius gives us an opportunity to understand our dharma, and “to shoot the arrow” in the right direction. Our desires for true guidance and wisdom are strong at this time. We want clarity now, before Jupiter moves into the ambitious sign of Capricorn, where he will be dominated by Saturn. Jupiter moves to Capricorn in November 2020.

Malefic Planets in Sagittarius 

Saturn came into Sagittarius in January 2017. Saturn’s transits through the different signs tend to put obstruction and limitation on areas related to the sign he is transiting. Even though this period has manifested financial gains, Saturn’s transit in Sagittarius has also resulted in a contraction of consciousness, and a diminishing sense of dharma. 

Ketu’s and Pluto’s presence in Sagittarius, are also influencing the energy in Sagittarius. The hidden power of Pluto, combined with Saturn’s power to obstruct, indicate the secret interference and manipulation of our values. 

Jupiter’s transit in Sagittarius may manifest some positive solutions in a troubled world, but the road to healing the division and unrest is very long. Jupiter will be in the company of malefic planets: Saturn, Ketu and Pluto. Saturn will leave Sagittarius when he transits into Capricorn on January 23rd, 2020. Jupiter will also visit Capricorn in the spring but returns to Sagittarius after three months.

As individuals, no matter what our signs are, we can all benefit from a strong Jupiter. This is an excellent time for strengthening spiritual life and for being receptive to inner guidance. Make the effort now!
