Jupiter Capricorn

Jupiter in hard aspect to Saturn in a natal chart is sometimes a sign of unhappiness. Jupiter signifies in many ways the ability for a person to be happy. The sign of Capricorn is not very sympathetic to the feeling of expansion, to the feeling of going up, of being free. Capricorn symbolises amongst many things what is serious, what is full of delay, of inadequacy and of just not measuring up… which is why it is also so strict about doing things properly, the first time. Capricorn has had a lifetime to learn from its mistakes.

Jupiter doesn’t like having to pay attention to detail, Jupiter likes to feel that where it goes and what it does is new and exciting. Jupiter likes the feeling of discovering new horizons, so for Jupiter, Capricorn symbolises being in a valley surrounded by mountains that impede that sense of expansiveness and freedom.

Jupiter Sagittarius

Jupiter Sagittarius is able to find truth. If life contains truth and meaning, if the higher meaning of life is discovered and life contains that element of hope which is the big thing for Sagittarius, then contentment and joy can be found. Jupiter in Sagittarius feels that something good is coming, it doesn’t matter that it never in their lives actually materialises, the fact is that this placement has Faith. Jupiter believes in the future, Jupiter believes the big promises that it makes to itself and to other people. In the Age of Pisces, Jupiter in Sagittarius was the priest who believed in the great beyond, in the afterlife, in something amazing and wonderful that was in “the world to come.” This does not have to signify religious Faith in every instance, all that this placement means is that Jupiter has Faith and will follow where the benevolent forces of the Universe lead it. Jupiter here is happy to go to foreign countries, because it believes that good things await it, “on the other side.” Often this is not so, life is harder than that, so then Jupiter returns back home, believing that good things again await him back there. The disappointments that usually make people unhappy in life seem to be like water off a duck’s back to Jupiter in Sagittarius.

There are of course some who are lucky beyond the wildest dreams. But like the Priest in the Monastery, it is their Faith and nothing more than this, that they have cultivated over the years which bring feelings of joy because there is something good, special, joyful waiting…
