Jupiter when placed in its Signs of rulership, Pisces & Sagittarius, is operating in the same mutable mode but being in a different element expresses differently.
JUPITER IN PISCES (MUTABLE WATER)
In Pisces Jupiter expands Belief, expands the sub-conscious and reaches out towards universal energy and acceptance of the transient nature of reality. Here Jupiter calls on a quest for self-discovery, a broadening of the faculty of empathy that bestows understanding, compassion for others and elevates the psyche to the spiritual dimensions. The process of expansion is internal, not visible, hidden or mystical. The person with Jupiter in Pisces may be a spiritual guru or a deeply religious person, a pious with his faith in man’s inherent ability to love truly devout.
Jupiter here may be William Blake, the mystical poet, saying:
“If the doors of perception were cleansed
everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.”
“If a thing loves, it is infinite.”
On his unskilled side Jupiter here may give a tendency to the person to easily believe and be beguiled, to give an excess of daydreaming, escapism or to make a person over-react towards the need of others.On his unskilled side Jupiter here may give a tendency to the person to easily believe and be beguiled, to give an excess of daydreaming, escapism or to make a person over-react towards the need of others.
JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS (MUTABLE FIRE)
In Sagittarius Jupiter expands Gnosis, expands the mind to reach out towards wisdom and acceptance of the different forms of reality, in the material world. Here Jupiter calls on a quest for self-discovery, a broadening of the mind and one’s horizons, is an accumulation of real life experiences through travelling, studying or reading.
The process of expansion is external and is lived as an outlet for the fiery passion of the sign. Travel and enjoy life, embrace new cultures, explore new opportunities, learn more and more, adopt a philosophy or a religious system, all are possible ways to expand gnosis, knowledge and yourself. Jupiter here becomes passionate and acts in good faith. A faith in Life. The person with Jupiter here may have deep ethics, religious views and be a real cosmopolitan, a passionate warm nature and be optimistic generous and enthusiastic.
On his unskilled side Jupiter here may give a tendency to wander unceasingly without rooting somewhere and accumulate an excess of experiences for the sake of experiences without judging their moral or ethical aspect.
Jupiter here may be William Blake, the painter, saying:
“The path of excess leads to the tower of wisdom”
P.S. Interestingly enough William Blake has Jupiter in Sagittarius!
