As much as Jupiter's departure from Sagittarius in the early days of the month is the end of his 13 month visit and the doors this has opened and the seeds this has planted for the future, it is not the end of all planetary activity. Jupiter will be gone by 3rd December, ending the foundation year for a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion that still has another 11 years to run, yet your birthday month will is still underway. This birthday month and new solar year began with Jupiter here and having already been here for a year before the Sun returned last month, this has allowed you to aim high from the get go. Your birthday month won't end until the Sun leaves Sagittarius on 22nd December but even then, the job of not only defining your game plan and resolutions will not only continue until Mercury leaves on 29th December but catch its second wind in the New Year. It is Mars' return in the New Year and position in Sagittarius until the end of February that will make the first two months of 2020 the time when the full implications from Jupiter's time here will come to fruition. In the meantime as first Jupiter, then the Sun and finally Mercury leave Sagittarius, they will all follow Venus into your income sector, who returned late last month. It is here that Jupiter will team up with Saturn and Pluto for the first time in our lifetime, kicking off the most potentially lucrative year in over a decade. As each planet returns to your income sector it will be to not only find Uranus in your work sector but to form a friendly aspect in their early days in your income sector. This not only creates some positive conditions across the income and job fronts this month but is a taste of things to come, with both remaining major themes during 2020. However, with Uranus in his last full month in retrograde motion in your work sector and Mars spending the rest of the year in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, on the job front this is more about preparing for a burst of activity in the New Year.
Week beginning Monday 9th of December 2019
There could be a feeling this week that you can't quite put your finger on or at least until Thursday's Full Moon snaps you out of it. It is not that you are feeling down or even that you are feeling flat and more that you are adjusting to no longer having Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion in Sagittarius. For the last 13 months, Jupiter has been fuelling a sense of what's possible as he worked to create the framework for the dreams, goals and ambitions that you have 11 more years of this 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion to work towards. Jupiter has taken all that energy and is now applying it to your income situation and matters, which will experience a huge amount of expansion over the next 12 months. With the Sun not leaving Sagittarius until the end of next week and Mercury returning on Monday, it is time to get your head out of the clouds and your feet back on the ground. It is time now to turn big ideas into a game plan and resolutions.
Monday 9th of December 2019
In the six days since Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion left Sagittarius, the Sun has been able to bring the focus back onto getting your birthday month and new solar year off the ground, without always looking to the big picture. This has given you a chance to regroup, with Mercury's return today a chance to pick up from where Jupiter left off. Mercury returns with a chance to get this new solar year off the ground and to start turning Jupiter's bold goals for the future into a game plan and resolutions.
Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac and your ruling planet is Jupiter, the biggest planet in our solar system, named after the Roman God Jupiter, who was King of the Gods!
The energy of Jupiter inclines towards generosity, benevolence, protection, expansion, joviality and incredible good fortune. Lucky you!
Yours is a warm, extroverted fun-loving fire sign. In astrological circles, there is a saying that if you want the truth, ask Sagittarius! You dislike dishonesty and being accused of it, might cause one of those rare times when you lose your temper and let loose a few thunderbolts.
Your way is to be honest and forthright, you say what you think. This means that you're probably not known for your tact or diplomacy, but we can absolutely trust your answers.
The symbol for your sign is the archer, depicted by a centaur holding a bow and arrow. The half man of the centaur can represent your humanity and intellect, the bow and arrow show your ambition to make your mark, while the half horse gives you four strong legs and sturdy hooves on which to freely roam and travel, fast, far and unfettered.
Your sign is a mutable, changeable one. You're easily able to go with the flow and you need to be free to do this. You prefer not to have too many ties and responsibilities. For this reason, some of you are slow to start a family, while others may decide not to have children at all.
Horses and other large animals belong to your sign but an animal doesn't need to be large to activate Jupiter the protector in your horoscope. You care about all animals. You might be reticent about the responsibility of parenthood but you'll eagerly take responsibility for a pet, or tend a sparrow with the broken wing until it is well enough to fly free. Some of you are race-horse owners or trainers, others just like to have a bet.
Your sign rules philosophy, religion, higher-education, journalism and long-distance travel. Nearly all Sagittarians love to travel, the extremely rare ones who never leave the country of their birth, are able to travel through their minds and studies.
Jupiter professions are often linked to the distribution of knowledge, through teaching or journalism, or working in the judicial or legal system. Comics and jokers also belong to your happy sign, you love to make people laugh and can be an hilarious prankster.
You get along best with the other fire signs, Aries and Leo, and the air signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. The position of Jupiter at the time of your birth, can modify your typically carefree and optimistic Sagittarian nature.
Jupiter takes 12 years to travel the zodiac spending approximately one year in each sign. When Jupiter is well placed, its return to its natal position can be a particularly lucky time for the individual. If you don't know the position of Jupiter when you were born, or you'd like to know more about your horoscope, one of our astrologers will be pleased to take your call.
