Jupiter has the most affinity with the fire signs. He loves being able to express joy and excitement about life and to give free reign to his natural need for fun. The high spirits, great self-confidence, enthusiasm, and strength of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius enhance Jupiter’s faith and trust in the existence of a Higher Power. The Jovial desire for something bigger than oneself finds an opportunity for the unbridled manifestation of his sense of grandness and connection with the Universe at large.
In this element, he can be most easily expand his faith that each individual possess a special and exalted spark beyond the common or mundane. Here, opportunities for Jupiter to accommodate his freedom loving, thrill-seeking, pleasure-oriented attitude are stimulated.
However, for all the latitude the fire signs give him to have fun and enjoy life, Jupiter is confronted by Aries, Leo and Sagittarius self-centeredness and frequent inability to see the bigger picture, something he requires to function properly.
This creates a tug-of-war between the urge to go farther than the ego in order to connect to society and a larger view of the world and this element natural tendency to be concerned with the individual alone.
In day-to-day life, the result can be disastrous for the native. Jupiter rushes into things, acting in a rash and impulsive manner that prevents him from gaining wisdom and absorbing experiences. People with this placement have a greater difficulty in growing and learning from their mistakes.
Aries is encouraged to act without a thought to the consequences, Leo to depend on approval from others for validation, and Sagittarius to believe in absolute truths.
Yet, Jupiter’s goal is to help expand the natural tendency for self-expression, give this energy an intention. The objective is to harness the urge for spontaneity and creative manifestation of the self, exhibited by the fire signs into well-thought and innovative actions, connecting the individual to his higher purpose.
Jupiter’s lesson for Aries is to develop a complete understanding of the importance of courage and reliance in oneself, which includes reigning in their natural impulsiveness for taking excessive risks. They also need to learn to rely on their leadership qualities to create opportunities for personal development that will foster their devotion in life.
For Leo, Jupiter seeks to teach the significance of creativity for self-growth. The goal is to feel blessed to be playing one’s role in society while avoiding the pitfalls of pride, selfishness, and egotism.
Jupiter’s task in Sagittarius is to channel wisdom and faith towards far-reaching humanitarian goals, in order to develop an appreciation for the magnitude of the spiritual side of life.
