Jolly. Jovial. Joyous. All of these words are etymologically related to Jupiter – the planet of optimism and expansion – and with all the Sagittarius activity in the heavens right now, this type of energy is infused in many of our day to day affairs for several weeks. Sagittarius is half man, half animal, representing the union of the human intellect with the animal instinct. This translates into being in the right place at the right time and being able to recognize and take advantage of opportunities that one might otherwise miss out on. Don’t let this wonderful energy slip by without taking advantage of it to push your projects forward in new and exciting directions.
Jupiter, the planet that rules Sagittarius and also the largest planet in our solar system, represents expansion, philosophy, travel, and social customs. With 6 planets in Sagittarius, including Jupiter himself, there is an extra-optimistic, extra-productive, extra-lucky movement forward taking place right now in all endeavors, especially in the areas of publishing, law, religion, and higher education. Right now, and especially over the weekend that just passed (December 9 & 10 2006), there is a lot of helpful energy that will guide expansions in business or in your personal life. This type of energy is especially able to take a setback and turn it into an opportunity, so you’ll be able to plow through obstacles that would have held you back in the past.
There is one caveat to watch out for. With all the optimism and forward momentum of the present, there is a tendency to overlook one’s limitations in time and resources and all those practical things that need to be considered. Just make sure that when this is all over, you’ll have the resources to maintain your new directions. But in your push to expand, you’ll undoubtedly attract additional resources, so don’t let that stop you.
