When Jupiter transits the Sixth House the desire for growth and expansion influences your job, daily habits, diet and health. This is a great time to improve your health and develop a daily routine that will enhance your growth in years to come. Your health should be good now and you’ll feel physically stronger. If you’ve been ill, this is a good time for the healing to begin.
This is an ideal time to look at your diet and make positive changes, but be careful not to overindulge. Jupiter expands whatever it touches and in the 6th house that means weight gain. But if you need to gain weight, you shouldn’t have too many problems getting back up to a healthy size.
This is also a good time to find ways to improve your work situation, perhaps by changing jobs or by improving your working conditions. You want your work to contribute to your personal growth, and Jupiter here will help you to find a way to make that a reality. You may find work more enjoyable now and realise the benefits of having a routine. Work can provide a sense of purpose and structure for your life. Since you spend so much time at work, it makes sense to ensure you can get the most from it.
You might get a better job now, one with improved pay or more opportunities for advancement and self-fulfilment. You’re not likely to gain greater power or social status now, but you might take on more work and this could impress the bosses or your colleagues and enable you to benefit later. You could earn more from your job now, or you might leave a well paying job to take on work which you find more personally fulfilling even though it pays less.
Possibilities with Jupiter transiting the 6th:
- Self-improvement projects
- Getting a better job
- Earning more money from work
- Improved health
- Developing a healthy exercise routine
- Improving your diet
- Providing a service to others
Watch out for:
- Weight gain due to self-indulgence
The 6th house represents duty, responsibility and service which are areas that don’t normally sit well with expansive Jupiter. Sometimes your duties and daily responsibilities get in the way of your personal growth and need for self-expression, but when Jupiter moves through this house you’ll be able to see how you can benefit by working to help others too. You’ll get the most out of this time by taking pride in your work and doing the job to the best of your ability.
