The planet visits an average of one sign a year. It is known for its masculine energy and rules both Sagittarius and Pisces. So, when Jupiter is in Sagittarius, this is a good thing. Born When Jupiter is in Sagittarius If you were born when Jupiter was in Sagittarius, some may say, you were born under a lucky star. Jupiter is at home in Sagittarius, and the two together seem to attract good fortune. This combination allows for the fullest expression of the amazing qualities of Jupiter. This is a kind and benevolent planet, one that wants you to grow and flourish in a positive way. As a Sagittarian, your element is fire and your quality is mutable. Sagittarius’ fire nature means you crave adventure and like to feel a sense of exploration. Like all mutable signs, you are curious, but the pro-active fire element makes you most likely to explore and debate hypothetical situations. You probably love to convert others to your beliefs. Desire for Travel With Jupiter in "Sadge," you may seek knowledge through experience and may be drawn to travel. There's a built-in desire to expand outside what is known and to understand other cultures. You have the potential to develop great wisdom. In Friendships Your warm, outgoing personality helps you in every situation, which can add to the sense of abundance coming your way. There is a detached friendliness about you that comes from greeting people in a non-judgmental way. This makes you fast friends for many since you cast a wide net that includes everyone. For the best luck, you need to remain open to others; both personally and with their beliefs. Becoming too dogmatic will diminish your luck. In Your Career If you have Jupiter in Sagittarius, you advance in life by growing in wisdom and sharing that knowledge with others perhaps through teaching. You excel in areas that call for visionary thinking. You're able to inspire others through your example of faithful living. Often you have a sense that all is well, no matter what. And this makes you a role model for those without a sense of certainty. Your Health As the largest planet, it has a grand payout, but it can also mean that its largesse may, at times, deteriorate into laziness and sloth. Jupiter can be associated with weight gain. The good news is that you do love sports and competition. That can be your motivator to get up off your behind and get back into shape. Popular People Who Share This Combination Famous folks who were born under the same combination include Copernicus, William Blake, Hans Christian Andersen, Joseph Smith, Vincent Van Gogh, William Butler Yeats, Margaret Mitchell, Jackson Pollock, Truman Capote, Woody Allen, Yves Saint Laurent, Billy Crystal, Al Gore, Stevie Nicks, Cat Stevens, Prince Charles, Michael Stipe, Sean Penn, Tupac Shakur, and Lance Armstrong. Good Qualities If you were born with Jupiter in Sagittarius then you may be known as "the seeker," for your penchant for travel, gaining experiential wisdom, and learning more through exploring new cultures and philosophies. You are tolerant of others and the differences you encounter. You are also known to be a faithful person, a truth-teller, well suited for being a teacher. You have a tendency to be lucky in life. Possible Challenges Sometimes a pitfall of being so intelligent is that you can often be perceived as a know-it-all. Because you have done your research, you sometimes become fanatical about your findings and have a tendency to be dogmatic. Be mindful, have patience, and practice restraint. You sometimes have the tendency to be slapdash and reckless.
