Jupiter is about wide open spaces
* Jupiter is by far the largest planet in our Solar System. It is the fifth planet from the Sun and orbits between Mars and Saturn.
* It takes Jupiter about 12 years to circle through the Zodiac, and it normally spends about a year in each sign.
* Jupiter usually retrogrades in each sign as it travels, and spends about 4 months in retrograde when it does.

More about Jupiter
* Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the 9th Sign of the Zodiac and is associated with the 9th House of the Natural Horoscope -- the one that begins with 0° Aries on the Ascendant.
* Jupiter's symbol is the centaur, the archer, a mythological creature half-man and half horse. This combines both the animal nature and the spiritual / higher mind natures of humankind. On the one hand the centaurs could be brutish. On the other hand, they were often revered as scholars and teachers.
* In keeping with this metaphor, Jupiter is often considered the thinking person's planet. It deals in specialized fields and sophisticated knowledge. It organizes the cultural wisdom and social norms into teachable, logical systems.
Jupiter is about abundance

Jupiter -- Speaking of Luck ---> Jupiter -- Astrology's symbol of luck ---> Astrologers associate Sagittarius with luck, and point to Jupiter / Sagittarius placements, signatures and energy as indicators. Supposedly if you have lots of them in your chart -- such as a Sagittarius Sun, Moon or Ascendant, or other bits of Jupiter goodness, you've got an edge on the rest of us. Maybe I should amend that and say we've supposedly got an edge on everyone else.

* Born with the Sun in Sagittarius -- The Sagittarius Character ---> The Wandering Philosopher ---> Sagittarius is the philosopher, teacher, religious leader and moral conscience of the Zodiac. Sagittarius souls are vivacious, dynamic, and always have plenty of energy to burn. They are fueled by an adventurous, restless spirit that keeps them always on the move, going places and doing things -- often physically but for sure intellectually.
