Sagittarius season is officially here, and it’s time to revel in the positive, optimistic energy of Jupiter. Sagittarius is the mutable fire sign that is always looking for new horizons. Its ruler Jupiter is one of the most beneficial planets in the zodiac. Because of this, Sagittarius is known for being very optimistic, forward-looking, and generally jovial in character. To Sagittarius, being around heavy energy all the time is just a drag.
This particular sign wants to experience all that life has to offer especially if it means exploring far-off places and expanding their minds. One of the best ways to harness the energy of Jupiter during the Sagittarius season is to understand how to harness Jupiter’s energy to make the most of this already beneficial time of the year.

There’s just something about Sagittarius energy that makes everyone take notice. Jupiter energy is abundant, optimistic, fun going, and generally the life of the party. This is not the sign that ruminates too deeply on the heavy stuff.
Sagittarius has several symbols which include an upward-facing arrow, the wild horse, and the centaur. These symbols all embrace the energy of forward movement which is quite applicable to Sagittarius’ mutable nature. The arrow represents Sagittarius’ desire to keep moving and aim for the horizons ahead. The wild horse represents Sagittarius’ wild, wandering, and freedom-loving nature. The centaur represents a combination of Sagittarius mutability (half-man half-horse) and its wise nature. Jupiter bestows Sagittarius with the expansive energy of the sage traveler that desires to know more and be more. For Sagittarius, life is an adventure that is fueled by hope and faith.
The Power of Optimism & Luck
If there’s one sign that can cheer up anyone, it is Sagittarius. The concepts of optimism, hope, and faith are deeply embedded in the character of Sagittarius. Yes, Jupiter is the great benefactor, and it bestows a significant amount of luck onto Sagittarius. However, some would argue that Sagittarius is blessed because of its optimistic, hopeful outlook on life. Just think about it. When we possess a positive mindset, this energy is reflected back to us. We all could learn a lot from Sagittarius’ optimistic outlook on life. They expect the best, so they get the best. Whether this is directly related to having Jupiter as a ruler or just simply the energy of honest gratitude and happiness, the formula works for this mutable, fiery sign.
The Desire for the Exotic & Unknown
Another aspect of Sagittarius energy is this desire to experience the unknown. If anyone knows Sagittarius, they know that they love to travel. Whether it’s by car, boat, train, or plane, if there’s travel involved, Sagittarius is there. Represented by the 9th house, Sagittarius rules long-distance travel while its opposite sign Gemini represented by the third house rules travel in the local environment, community, and short-distance trips. When Sagittarius travels, they are seeking to experience what is different or foreign to themselves. They love going to different countries and being immersed in new cultures, trying new foods, learning new languages, as well as new religions and philosophical concepts. Sagittarius is also likely to make their home a foreign place. These are the type of individuals who become ex-pats or just simply decide that they would like to live abroad because they desire to immerse themselves in a different culture.
The Higher Mind & “Majoring” in Life
The energy of Sagittarius and the 9th house is associated with higher thinking. If Gemini is the basic learning then Sagittarius represents higher education. This is the energy of academia, and where we go to hone our learning through a specialized topic. Many individuals with highlighted Sagittarius and 9th house energy are often found working in academia. However, higher education is not the only way to expand one’s consciousness via Jupiter energy.
Sagittarius also represents religious and philosophical concepts that provide a different way of thinking and perceiving our experiences. In some cases, Sagittarius may choose to travel to far-off lands such as taking a trip to India where they meet a guru who changes their entire perspective on life. Even for those Sagittarians who do not choose to travel physically, there is this dedication to the pursuit of expanding one’s perception through some form of higher education and/or religious or philosophical musings.
Sometimes Too Much of a Good Thing
With every sign, there is the potential for excess in the expression of energies. In the case of Sagittarius, this is a heightened issue because Jupiter is known for its expansive qualities. Sagittarius, being the fire sign that it is, spreads itself wherever it goes, and sometimes this can be too much. This is not a sign that understands limitations. That particular energy is more associated with its neighboring sign Capricorn. Sagittarius wants it all…right now. Thus, there can be a tendency to take on too much and to overindulge. This could lead to everything from excessive weight gain to excessive debt.
Sagittarius could learn to curb its desire to experience more. Jupiter will always be there supplying its bountiful cornucopia of energy because it is in Sagittarius’ nature to expect abundance. However, Sagittarius could learn a lot from knowing when to pull back and realize that they have enough. They don’t have to grab at every lucky star simply because it’s there. Remember, with Sagittarius Jupiter is their ruler, and abundance, expansion, optimism, hope, and luck are this sign’s birthright.
