Expansive Jupiter is headed home to Sagittarius for the first time since November 2007! For those of you who are Sagittarius or Pisces rising, Jupiter in Sagittarius will be a particularly positive time period for you.
(Please note this is a Sidereal/Vedic astrology forecast and calculations vary from the Tropical zodiac calculations, therefore planetary movements within signs vary from Sidereal to Tropical).
When planets are in their own signs, they are strong and able to fully express their energies! Jupiter conveys wisdom, abundance, expansiveness, joy and dharma (right action), to name a few of Jupiter's key attributes.
Sagittarius is the sign most associated with dharma, law, spirituality and religion, and philosophy. Sagittarius is Jupiter’s mulatrikona sign or head office, where he really gets down to business when it comes to these areas of life.
Depending upon which rising sign you are, this transit will have different implications for each rising sign. You can read your Jupiter transit horoscope here. And if you don’t want all the astrological detail that follows, scroll down to the bottom of this blog post!

Important Dates to Note
November 1 – 8: Jupiter will be in the gandanta zone which is the border crossing in final degree of watery Scorpio and first degree of fiery Sagittarius. This is a very tenuous time for all things related to Jupiter (see above) and not a good time to make important Jupiter related decisions. Additionally the houses that Jupiter rules in your birth chart will be weakened during this time.
November 4: Jupiter enters sidereal Sagittarius. Jupiter will remain in Sagittarius until November 19, 2020.
There will be a three-month period when Jupiter is moving quite fast and slips into Capricorn March 29 – June 29, 2020. After heading retrograde Jupiter goes back into Sagittarius until November 2020. This short transit through Capricorn will be a preview of what is to come in late 2020 when Jupiter moves into Capricorn.
Other Key Transits to Sagittarius for 2019
Saturn, Ketu and Pluto are all currently in Sagittarius and have been for some time. Good news is Saturn is headed for his own sign, Capricorn, early 2020. But before we get into that – let’s take a closer look at the next two months.
One by one, Venus, Sun, Mercury and eventually Mars will all be piling through Sagittarius to connect with Jupiter first, then Ketu and Saturn, and finally Pluto. This is a ton of energy that is going to be rolling through this sign! As a result all of the dual signs (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini and Virgo) will be getting the full force of this planetary pile-up, with Sagittarius and Gemini rising getting the force of it – Gemini because it is opposite Sagittarius. Pisces and Virgo will be in disharmonious elements (water and earth) to fiery Sagittarius, too.
So what DOES all of this mean?
Regardless of your individual chart, there is going to be a blast of energy that is moving through Sagittarius which is connected to lawfulness, dharma and right action. With Saturn finishing up his transit here too, there is a special emphasis on doing the right thing, no matter what! If you know your Vedic rising sign or Sun sign, be sure to read the Jupiter forecast by sign here.
Please note that this forecast is created using the Vedic sidereal zodiac system, which is calculated differently Western tropical astrology. The difference is ~ 24 degrees at this time. So if your rising degree or any planet is 24 degrees or lower, then in the sidereal system it will go back one full sign.
