Everything in life has pros and cons, including astrology. All 12 zodiac archetypes embody both yin and yang energies, and their planetary rulers emanate a unique frequency. For instance, Jupiter going direct in Sagittarius 2019 will feel like a burst of positive energy because this heavenly body is associated with luck, joy, and opportunity. However, the same way almighty Jupiter has the power to expand your horizons with blessings and spiritual growth, it's important to recognize whether you're being realistic with your goals. Jupiter's contagious optimism can make you feel like you're on top of the world... but don't let it get to your head.
Life has its highs and lows, so make sure to keep your balance in the process. This is especially true when referring to lucky Jupiter, King of the Gods and planet of hope and bounty, per CafeAstrology.com. This heavenly body is equivalent to a giant magnifying glass because whatever it touches will automatically get bigger. Sounds strange, I know, but if you've ever heard of the phrase, "Go big or go home," then you probably know exactly where I'm coming from. Jupiter is blessings on blessings, but its energy can also be a bit excessive, which, in turn, may lead to overindulgence.
The largest planet in our solar system, happy-go-lucky Jupiter, is also Sagittarius' planetary ruler, which inevitably makes this transit even more potent. This celestial entity is here to remind you to take risks and trust your higher self. Hint: Check which astrological house belongs to Sagittarius in your birth chart. This is where you've likely experienced spiritual growth and opportunity since Jupiter's initial shift into Sagittarius in November 2018.
Jupiter stationed retrograde on Apr. 10, and during this retrograde cycle, the King of the Gods took you on a spiritual journey. As you may know, retrograde cycles are for reflecting, revisiting, and reassessing specific situations, and in this particular case, Jupiter's mission consisted of bringing you closer to your higher self in order to reach your maximum potential. Again, the specifics depend on your individual birth chart, but chances are, you were given a closer look at the infinite possibilities. What have you learned since April? Have you taken the necessary risks?
