Jupiter in Sagittarius - November 4, 2019 - November 20, 2020
On November 4th, 2019, Jupiter will enter Sagittarius. It will stay there until March 29, 2020, when it will enter Capricorn. It will begin its retrograde phase in Capricorn on May 14th, and then retrograde back into Sagittarius on June 29th. It will turn direct in Sagittarius on September 12th and finally leave Sagittarius on November 20th, 2020. To simplify that explanation, Jupiter will be in Sagittarius from November 4, 2019 to November 20, 2020, except for a 3 month gap, from March 29th - June 29th, when it will be in Capricorn temporarily.
That will give it a total of about ten months in Sagittarius. Normally, Jupiter stays in a sign for an average of 13 months. Apparently, this time, Jupiter is in a hurry. Nevertheless, Sagittarius is a good place for Jupiter to transit. Sagittarius is Jupiter's own sign, a sign where it has a great deal of power and can behave in its most natural way. And that is a good thing for the sign of Sagittarius, since its has been pummeled in the past couple of years by Saturn and other malefic influences.
I have been writing about Saturn, and other planets influencing Sagittarius, over the past couple of years. In a recent article, I mentioned that Saturn was transiting Purva Ashadha nakshatra, in the middle of Sagittarius, causing a suppression of the water element, and also suppressing Purva Ashadha's shakti, the power to energize. I said that it could produce issues related to water (the hot, dry weather) as well as the potential for power outages. During the few days build up to the new moon in Swati, the nakshatra related to the wind, huge winds, dry weather, and broken power lines, caused devastating fires in California. The shakti of the new moon in Swati, is the power to scatter like the wind. Hundreds of thousands of people in California had to leave their homes at that time. Here in Nevada City, California, we also had a fire. My wife and I spent a frantic afternoon trying to pack our cars in case of an evacuation. Luckily, the fire was contained and we were able to stay in our home.
This is all to point out that Saturn will be leaving Sagittarius on January 24, 2020. When Jupiter enter's Sagittarius on November 4, 2019, it will be joining Saturn there for a couple of months until Saturn departs in January. Once again, a complicated explanation, but it just means that, even though Jupiter enters Sagittarius in November, it will not be able to express its most expansive and exuberant energy until after January 24th.
This will mean that each of us will receive a nice positive boost from Jupiter in the area of life signified by the house in which Sagittarius is located in our individual horoscopes.
The following predictions are only for the period from November 4, 2019 to November 20, 2020, except for a 3 month gap, from March 29th - June 29th. Be sure to read the Sun-sign birth date ranges carefully, because we use a sidereal zodiac in Vedic astrology. We also look at transits of planets from various lagnas (focal points). Since I can't see your individual chart when I am writing this, I have to rely on your Sun sign, which we call the Surya lagna. If you are more knowledgeable about your Vedic chart, and if you know the signs occupied by your Moon, ascendant, and arudha lagna, then you can read the predictions given for those signs as well.

Nov 16 - Dec 15 (Scorpio) During this period, Jupiter will be passing through your second house. This will probably boost your finances in some way. It makes you feel more abundant.

Dec 16 - Jan 13 (Sagittarius) If you have your Sun, Moon, Arudha Lagna, or Ascendant in Sagittarius, then you might have been experiencing a general sense of stress, pressure, delays or obstacles in the last couple of years.

Jan 14 - Feb 12 (Capricorn) During Jupiter's transit of Sagittarius you might travel more than usual. If so, you will find that your journeys are more expansive and positive.

On another level, this period will give you a greater sense of clarity and self-confidence as well.
Feb 13 - Mar 13 (Aquarius) Jupiter is passing through your eleventh house, the house that signifies friends, groups, finances and your ability to get the things you desire. During this period, you might find it easier to finish projects and accomplish your intentions. This will probably also produce financial gains or opportunities. During this time, you will also become more social, and that is how relationships improve. It's even a better time for romance, so if you are not in a relationship and if you are interested in being in one, this is a time to get out there and socialize, connect with groups, and participate in activities with friends. You never know who you will meet at your local bingo game!
Mar 14 - Apr 13 (Pisces) During this period, Jupiter will be passing through your tenth house. This is the career house. But it is really just the house of action, which includes vocation, avocation, hobbies and whatever-the-heck you do with your day. You don't have to be a brain surgeon or even have a job to benefit from this transit. It will support and promote positive outcomes for all of your daily tasks. But if you are looking for a job, now is the time to make hay while the Sun (or Jupiter) shines. Get you resume out there, since this is prime time for getting a job. If you already have a job, then it will improve in some way.
