When Jupiter transits the Ninth House the desire for growth and expansion influences how you search for meaning, truth and self-development. This is a time to learn as much as you can about who you are and the world in which you live. You might do this through education, travel, or religious and spiritual belief systems, but the main thrust of this time is the search for something to give your life more meaning and direction.
You might have the opportunity to travel long distances and explore the wider world. This expands your horizons, not just literally, but in terms of self-knowledge, and you’ll be able to discover more about yourself through involvements with foreign people and places. Any travelling you do now could be for business or personal enjoyment. Either way, you’re likely to gain from it enormously.
You may also become more involved with education, either through learning or teaching. You might go back to school to study a new subject or just find yourself doing a lot more reading than usual. You want to learn and expand your mind, so you’re likely to be drawn to more profound subjects, such as philosophy, metaphysics, spirituality and religion. But you want what you learn to have real benefits and use in your day to day life. It’s not enough just to believe in something, you want to really understand it and expand your knowledge base.
This transit can expand your consciousness so it’s a good time to get involved in anything that enables you to develop your full potential. What this actually entails depends on your current situation and where your potentials are. Now is the time to find out what you’re capable of and begin to work towards it. Once you have a clearer idea of what you can accomplish, you can make plans for developing your career in preparation for Jupiter crossing your Midheaven into the 10th house. Any travel or educational opportunities that arise now could help you to grow towards fulfilling your ambitions in later years.
If you’re a writer or would like to be one, this is a great time to spread your work around and gain a wider audience. The 9th house covers publishing and media, so if you want to publish a book, now is a good time to try.
Possibilities with Jupiter transiting the 9th:
- Optimistic view of the future
- Renewed faith
- Philosophical studies
- Travel to distant lands
- Publishing opportunities
- Sharing your knowledge
Watch out for:
- Being a know-it-all
- Imposing your worldview on others
This transit is about expanding your consciousness and worldview. As you grow in knowledge, you’ll also become more mature and develop the wisdom you need to make the most of who you are. This won’t happen if you don’t make the effort to discover more about yourself. If you think you already know who you are and what you want, you could become smug and self-satisfied instead of enriched. Take this opportunity to get to know yourself better and allow your consciousness to expand as far as you dare.
