As the planetary representation of Zeus, Jupiter presides over the zodiac with fatherly wisdom and guidance.

As such, this planet determines how we seek knowledge, broaden our horizons, and expand our minds. Just as our parents shape our fundamental belief systems, Jupiter determines what we think about the world and how we understand reality. This planet also determines our cosmic luck, or the unexpected ways we receive insight and blessings.

As it moves through the signs, Jupiter is responsible for periods of optimism and opportunity which makes it a great catalyst for change and reinvention. If there are things in our lives that aren't working for us, Jupiter not only illuminates these things, but provides us with a path and framework to go about changing them. And as the ruler of worldly Sagittarius, Jupiter is also the planet most responsible for determining our attitudes towards religion, morality, and philosophy.

This action-oriented planet visits each sign for approximately one year, giving you the time to make a "New Years" plan when it enters your sign.
