Again,we are all set to visit the next transit of Jupiter in the sign of Sagittarius on 5th Nov, 2019, there is an obvious curiosity to know how this transit is going to impact human life on Earth. So, here is my take or understanding of this transit. At the outset, I may repeat that events in our life happen as per collective impact of all planets. One planet transiting in any sign neither going to make you King nor Beggar, but this one planet’s transit will certainly contribute its mite into the collective impact. Hence, it is important to know what Jupiter’s contribution in the total.
Also, Jupiter is the biggest and most expansive planet among all. Its transits last for about 13 months. This is a considerably long time in comparison to other transits we have of Sun, Moon, Mercury & Venus. So, if a big planet like Jupiter is transiting in Sagittarius for about one year, it is going to make some impact to Human Life. This article is little effort to get an idea of impact.
Also during 2020, Saturn and Nodes will also change their signs. All these are big transits which last for more than an year at least. Plus it will be an year of retrogrades when all 5 planets are going to retrograde. We will surely look into the details of those transits in 2020 through different articles and posts, but we have to understand that Jupiter’s results will be impacted by other transits and vice-versa. Everyone is impacting each other. Hence, we are also going to be impacted accordingly. None is too big to have all impact and none is too small to have no impact. We have to see the complete picture
So, let’s 1st look at all the important factors to understand this transit –
Jupiter’s last transit – Somehow my approach in Astrology is about experience. So, if a book says something about a planetary position but person having that planetary position didn’t experience what book says then after doing in-depth analysis and seeing all possible reasons, I will prefer to be on the side of person rather than Book as what he is saying is about live experience. We can’t deny that. So, before looking into what Jupiter in Sagittarius will do, it is important to see if Jupiter in Scorpio transit passed the test as expected and predicted - https://www.astrosaxena.com/jupscorp2018 ? Because if our lives were not impacted by Jupiter in Scorpio then there is very less chance that Jupiter in Sagittarius is going to do much. As I have seen and experienced, the year 2019 was the year of sheer helplessness where other annual transits of planets were bringing chaos in life and the only saviour Jupiter was stuck in Scorpio, expanding that chaos and transformation of human life, not being able to help us in anyway. We can see some chaotic events happening during the year at national/international level and lots of countries were on the verge of war almost whole of the year. At the same time, occult and mystical side of life got a boost and lots of people got inclined towards occult knowledge and practice. At personal level, I came in contact with practitioners of different streams of occult and was benefitted by their association. As Scorpio is my ascendant, Jupiter transiting my ascendant brought the change in my identity and I became Swami Premanand Bharti. This transit further established myself as Teacher or Counsellor among people. Last but not the least, ascendant is 10th from 4th house. Hence, it represents our mother’s father. So, Jupiter transiting my 1st house/Scorpio had its say in recent demise of my grandfather. So, we can see that Jupiter in Scorpio had given results at individual and mundane level. Hence, we can expect Jupiter in Sagittarius is going to do the same. With this prelude, let’s try to understand Jupiter in Sagittarius transit.
Jupiter - Jupiter is the most benefic planet and it represents all the auspicious things like Knowledge, Wisdom, Law, Guru, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Expansion of Things and Elderly People. For a girl, Jupiter also represents Husband.
Sagittarius – Sagittarius is the 9th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents many things related with the 9th house of horoscope like Religion, Knowledge, Wisdom, Higher Learnings, Gurus, Teachings from your Father etc. Besides it also represents Coaching, Universities, Professors and Preachers, Higher Wisdom, Written Law of the Land etc. Sagittarius has next set of 2 and half nakshatra which are Mula, Purva-Ashadha and Uttara-Ashadha. Sagittarius' lord is Jupiter.
Transit Period – Jupiter will transit into Sagittarius sign between 5th Nov, 2019 to 20th Nov, 2020. In between, Jupiter will enter in Capricorn between 30th Mar, 2020 to 30th June, 2020. Besides these 3 months, remaining period it will remain in Sagittarius only. So, it is more or less a Jupiter in Sagittarius transit.
Retrograde Period - Jupiter will be retrograde from 15th May, 2020 to 13th Sep, 2020. This means that Jupiter will be closer to Earth during this time. So, the results stated herein will be felt with greater intensity during this time. As Jupiter represents belief systems, this is also the time when we will reflect back at our belief system.
Jupiter in Sagittarius - Wherever Jupiter goes, it brings the knowledge and wisdom to that sign/house. It makes us learn things related to that sign/house. So, when Jupiter is in Sagittarius, we can see following results –
- First of all, good thing about 2020 is that Saturn and Jupiter both are in own sign during this year. It gives a sense of optimism and hope for us. A planet in own sign is like a person sitting in his own home, completely in control of events.
- So, it is a welcome change from 2019 where everything looked beyond control and chaotic. Now, for about one year we can have this illusion and ego satisfaction that we can manage our lives.
- Then Jupiter and Sagittarius both represent knowledge, education and wisdom. So, one thing is sure that knowledge and higher education is going to get the boost. We can see many people going into higher education of their field of interests and taking Post Graduation and Ph.D. courses etc.
- One thing which we should hope for is some wisdom to fall upon humanity and especially upon our political leaders worldwide who love to threaten each other with Nuclear War. We can see a rise in overall wisdom at world level which we seriously need after chaotic 2019.
- Then we need not to forget that Jupiter is coming into Sagittarius after completing this chaotic transit in Scorpio. So, lessons learnt during Jupiter in Scorpio during 2019 will become the foundation of the wisdom or knowledge during Jupiter in Sagittarius during 2020. If we forget our lessons of 2019 then we can get into same mess again and may repeat same mistakes again. So, first wisdom is to remember the experiences of Jupiter in Scorpio.
- There can be an overall environment of hope and optimism as Jupiter transits into Sagittarius.
- Religious, Philosophical or any type of higher education will be expanded.
- People would be interested to know about different culture and people of different ethnicity.
- As Jupiter is in own sign and it is expanding our knowledge from all directions, it shows that people can be receptive towards other’s views and beliefs which is a welcome change after Saturn in Sagittarius which has seen rise in fundamentalism at all levels.
- At the same time, almost throughout this transit, Ketu will stay with Jupiter which suggests that people are going to be interested in research oriented knowledge or education. We have to remember that although Jupiter is changing sign from Scorpio to Sagittarius but energy is not totally changing because Scorpio is co-ruled by Ketu and in Sagittarius, Jupiter will be first in Ketu’s nakshatra Moola and then with Ketu itself. So, research oriented knowledge and education will still be on a high.
- It will also bring results of Guru Chandal Yoga too where people can have different and unusual views on different streams of knowledge. The lesson here is again to be receptive towards all opinions and ideas, no matter how outrageous it is, to learn and grow from every direction.
- Welcome change is that Ketu was with Saturn in Sagittarius in 2019 which brought fundamentalism and bigotry to the fore during the year. This time, Ketu is with Jupiter in its own sign. So, although people can have unusual or outrageous views but there can be a receptivity around all different views.
- People may find their Guru also and at world level also, we can see rise of a new religious or spiritual teacher.
- Overall, this is knowledge and education based transit where we will be learning new things on different religions, philosophies, literature and about the matters related to the house where Jupiter is transiting in Sagittarius in your chart.
Jupiter’s Aspects – We will only cover the house Jupiter will transit as per the Ascendant as the biggest impact will be there. But we need to be careful about Jupiter’s Aspect during this transit. Jupiter will aspect 5th house, 7th house and 9th house from its house of transit and impact those houses. As I said, Jupiter’s aspect is always benefic, even if Jupiter is debilitated at exact degree. So, we need to keep an eye on where it is aspecting from Sagittarius in your chart. We won’t be able to cover it here as this article would never end then but I can tell you in brief that Jupiter’s 5th house aspect is aspect of Education. Means wherever Jupiter aspects 5th from its place in your chart, you treat that house as where you want to learn more about things related to that house. 7th house aspect is about sharing of knowledge. Here, Jupiter finds the people with whom it can share the knowledge of the house it is transiting. 9th house aspect is of higher education. So, wherever Jupiter aspects at 9th house from its transit, you want to gain higher education related to that house or want to follow things related to that house as your religion.
Dashas – As always, this transit of Jupiter will be more influential on those people who are going through Jupiter dashas. It doesn’t mean that for others it won’t do anything. 13 months is long enough time to give some results.
Jupiter Return – This transit will also be important for those who are born with Jupiter in Sagittarius, regardless of running Dasha. This will be a Jupiter Return for them which happens once in 12 years. All the results of karaka & house ruler things of Jupiter, as discussed above, will come to the fore during this transit of Jupiter Return - https://www.astrosaxena.com/jupret. Likewise, Jupiter transiting over Sun, Moon and Ascendant are equally important transits.
Jupiter in Birth Chart - Jupiter's position and dignity in Birth Chart will have an important role as dasha of Jupiter in giving the results of Jupiter only as per its dignity in birth chart. So, please keep that position and dignity in mind.
Nakshatra – As Jupiter crosses in to Sagittarius, it will be transiting over Moola, Purva Ashadha and Uttara Ashadha Nakshatra. Jupiter passing over each nakshatra will give us knowledge and wisdom related to things of that nakshatra. It will also give us results of the house where nakshatra lords are placed in birth chart. Like, Jupiter transiting over Moola will make us inclined towards research oriented knowledge and will also give results of Ketu as per its position in birth chart. Jupiter transiting over Purva Ashadha can bring further intensity in education or desire of precise knowledge and will also give results of Venus as per its position in birth chart. Jupiter transiting over Purva Ashadha can bring ambitious approach in people and will also give results of Sun as per its position in birth chart
Other Planets in Sagittarius – Likewise, if a person has planet/planets in Sagittarius in birth chart then Jupiter transiting over that planet/planets will expand the traits and characteristics of planet/planets. Now, the exact result depends on the planet, its dignity and conjunction/aspects on it. So, we can’t cover everything here. Also, during the year, other planets like Sun, Moon, Mercury & Venus will transit through Sagittarius and will conjunct transiting Jupiter. So, that will also have its impact on Jupiter’s results here.
Other transits and joint impact – Last but certainly not the least, we need to keep an eye on other planetary transits and joint impacts being made with Jupiter in Sagittarius. Following are a few joint impacts Jupiter will be part of during 2019-20 –
- Jupiter-Saturn-Ketu together in Sagittarius.
- Jupiter in Sagittarius at axis of Rahu-Ketu.
- Jupiter-Saturn together in Capricorn.
At right time, we will cover these joint impacts with separate articles and posts.
Now, the main course.
This article won’t only tell how Jupiter will impact for all Ascendant and Moon Sign people, but it will also show how Jupiter’s role is switching for each ascendant sign and therefore why making a generalise opinion on a planet or sign may not be a prudent thing to do? As I said, this transit is going to be more fruitful for those people going through Jupiter Mahadasha but it doesn’t mean that it will have no impact on others. We all go through Antar dashas and Pratyantar dashas of all the planets throughout year, so this transit will show its impact in those time periods. Also, for slow moving planets like Jupiter, Rahu, Ketu and Saturn, we don’t have to depend on Dashas. Because of their slow movement, they always impact our life in given time.
Please see results of this transit from Ascendant and Moon Sign both. Predictions from Ascendant Sign will show what will actually happen and predictions from Moon Sign will show what our mind desires and how mind will react to such events. Another thing is that when Ascendant and Moon sign both point towards one event that event has higher possibility to happen.
So, let’s begin –
Aries Ascendant or Aries Moon Sign – For Aries people, Jupiter rules over 9th house (Sagittarius) of religion, higher learnings and 12th house (Pisces) of Spirituality, Charity and Hidden Secrets. So for Aries people, Jupiter is more a knowledge and travel based planet. Jupiter will transit through 9th house of higher education, religion, philosophy, Gurus and Teachers etc. A transit totally dedicated to higher education of all types including religion, philosophies, literature, culture, occult and mystical or any other research oriented work. They can find a Teacher or Guru who can bless them with higher education, and knowledge. So, this year will be all about drowning in ocean of knowledge and wisdom. They can also travel to a long distance for purpose of higher education. As 9th house is house of loss of career and Jupiter is transiting 12th from 10th house, this transit can bring an end to existing career they may have to take up a new career. They still need to take care of Father’s health. The whole life path & can take a direction towards gaining more knowledge. It can also make them in spiritual pursuits or following a Spiritual Guru. The knowledge which they gain during this transit can be helpful in making their career in Jupiter’s next transit.
Taurus Ascendant or Taurus Moon Sign – For Taurus people, Jupiter rules over 8th house (Sagittarius) of Occult, Mysteries & Other People Money and 11th house (Pisces) of Higher Cause, Gains and Income. For Taurus people, 2019-20 can bring biggest of change. It is because Saturn is already transiting 8th house of changes for them alongwith Ketu and now 8th house lord Jupiter will be in 8th house. This indicates some major change in life and the reason behind that change may be a relation/marriage/partner/business/accident/sudden events. They can expect a big change coming in their relation/marriage either ways. It shows that life path can go through a major change. Person’s belief system, morals and values can go through a major change. They can be all about getting more and more knowledge of occult and mysticism. They will realize their religion and spirituality through occult and mysticism. They will spend their time and money in dealing with changes in life or in understanding of occult. Any far distant travels can bring big change in their lives. They can get spiritually inclined and may get gains through spiritual pursuits. They can take higher education related with any research oriented subject. They should be pro-active while travelling to avoid any sudden event or accident. It looks like a good time for business as 11th house lord of gains is transiting through 8th house of business benefits but they can go through a major change in relationship matters. It is going to be a beneficial change eventually as Jupiter is in own sign. They should remain receptive towards changes and not try to resist it.
Gemini Ascendant or Gemini Moon Sign – For Gemini people, Jupiter rules over 7th house (Sagittarius) of Business, Other People and Marriage and 10th house (Pisces) of Career, Work Environment. So for Gemini people, Jupiter takes shape of a Career Oriented planet. Now, Jupiter is going to transit their 7th house. It is certainly going to bring a relationship in life but as Jupiter is transiting with Ketu, person may not feel 100% connected or engaged in that relationship. There will be a sense of void or disconnection at any level from partner. Still, Jupiter in 7th house can bring relationship, under this caveat. As 10th house lord is in 7th house, it shows good time in matters of career. They can get a better opportunity or they can be inclined to have their own business setup career. Their career will expand if they are in business where they are sharing their knowledge with others. Their relationship can also work better if they can communicate with their partner on matters of knowledge, philosophy and literature etc.
Cancer Ascendant or Cancer Moon Sign – For Cancer people, Jupiter rules over 6th house (Sagittarius) of Daily Routine Life, Jobs etc. and 9th house (Pisces) of Religion and Long Distance Travels. So for Cancer people, Jupiter takes shape of a Service and Education related planet. Now, Jupiter will transit through 6th house itself. This is certainly not a good time for relationship as Saturn transiting 6th house/7th house is already creating stress in relationship and now Jupiter is going in 6th house of disputes. This shows that their relation/marriage can land into big conflicts. At the same time, Jupiter is in own sign. So, it can try its best to safeguard person from any major loss in conflicts, illnesses and debts. It also says that issues related with health or debts can grow. They can get Jupiter related diseases like Fat, Arteries and Liver related or any illness which is hard to diagnose. They need to be pro-active to maintain a good health. Gaining and sharing knowledge can become an important part of their daily work life. They can get good education in field of law or medicines.

They can be inclined towards higher education of their choice of subject. It can also be higher education related with creative interests they may have. As Jupiter is 8th house lord, this education can be in research oriented field. At the same time, it shows sudden events impacting their love life or their children’s lives. It can also indicate surgery related with stomach. As Jupiter is 8th house lord of changes and transiting through 5th house of change in career, it shows that a major change in career can come up in 2019-20 for them. If they are interested in education of research subjects or in professions like teaching and counselling then it can be the best time ever.

Any major transit in 12th house is always the transit of closing times. Person will complete many tasks pending from a long time or he will just decide to leave the effort. This is so because when Jupiter enters the 1st house after one year, he can make new beginnings in life. To start something new, you need to 1st finish the pending tasks. This transit can bring a foreign travel to them or travel to Spiritual Places. This can also make them focus on spiritual side of life. But if overall chart doesn’t support such actions then they can very well spend the same time in escapism, alcohol, drugs or spending lavishly. Best use of this time can be in spiritual pursuits like meditation or gaining knowledge about spiritual/religious matters as Moksha Triangle is activating. They can find a Guru or Teacher in spiritual field. Mostly, it is a transit where person may spend most of time in foreign lands or in spiritual/occult studies.
