Jupiter when placed in the Signs of its rulership, Sagittarius or Pisces, is operating in the same Mutable mode but being in a different Element, it expresses differently.
JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS
In Sagittarius, Jupiter expands Gnosis, expands our mind to open and reach out towards wisdom, through the acceptance and acknowledgment of the multiple and different forms and ideas in the material world.
Here Jupiter calls us on a quest for self-discovery, a broadening of our mind and our horizons, with 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 to live life at its fullest.
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 in the natal chart, may have deep ethics, religious views or be a real cosmopolitan, with a passionate warm nature, optimistic, generous and over enthusiastic.
Jupiter in Sagittarius, on his unskilled side or if the planet is making many hard aspects in the native’s natal chart, may give a tendency to the person to wander unceasingly without rooting somewhere, and to accumulate an excess of experiences for the sake of experiences only, without judging if they are ethical or expedient.
Jupiter here may be William Blake, the painter, saying:
“The path of excess leads to the tower of wisdom”
JUPITER IN PISCES
In Pisces Jupiter evolves and sustains Belief, expands the sub-conscious, and reaches out towards universal energy and acceptance of the transient nature of reality.
Here Jupiter calls us on a quest for self-discovery through the broadening of the faculty of empathy, that bestows understanding, compassion for others, and elevates the psyche to higher vibrations.
The process of expansion is internal.
It is not outright visible, but many times hidden or mystical and is lived as an outlet for the psychological need of the Sign of Pisces to be Inspired.
The person with Jupiter here in the natal chart, may be a deeply religious person, a pious one, or a spiritual guru, or someone who has a strong faith in man’s inherent ability to love truly and devoutly.
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.”
Jupiter in Pisces on his unskilled side, or if the planet is making many hard aspects in the native’s natal chart, may give a tendency to the person to easily believe and be beguiled, may give excessive daydreaming, escapism or to make a person over-react towards the need of others.
THE POET AND PAINTER, WILLIAM BLAKE
William Blake (November 28, 1757 – August 12, 1827) was one of the most important English poets and also painter, engraver, illustrator, mystic and visionary. It is often referred to as the “Prophet” of English literature and is among the major poets of world literature.
P.S. Interestingly enough William Blake has Jupiter in Sagittarius!
THE IMPORTANCE OF AN ASTROLOGICAL READING
Andrew Ifandis approaches the horoscope as a portrait of a person’s inherent potential. A reading can reveal your natal chart’s dynamics, prepare you for the future and can constructively help you towards awareness, self-realization and externalizing of your most creative.
