Though we may sometimes feel that “the Gods must be crazy,” we can learn to harness luck in our lives by working with Jupiter. That way, when coke bottles fall out of the sky, we know what to do with them! Jupiter, as a benefic planet, enables us to dream big, to explore reality outside of our normal boundaries and to have hope. It also inspires us to embody our highest selves and to work towards the betterment of society.
Since Sagittarius rules the lovely planet of rings, themes such as higher education, the courts, cultures around the world and belief systems can also come into play when Jupiter zooms one of our houses. Though it is possible to overdo things when the planet of expansion and growth is around, it does tend to bring a measure of luck with it, so long as we are doing the work.
When Jupiter tours the 11th house, expect your social calendar to be packed as you mingle with a broad circle of friends and organizations. Often, you will feel compelled to join with those who share the same visions for society that you do. Leaders, teachers, lawyers, judges, writers, broadcasters and clergy may join you to make your dreams, or vision for the future, a reality. Drawing on the wisdom from people from other cultures could also prove beneficial. You should have a large reach right now when it comes to friends as well as organizations, so extend your hand to join in with others.
In short, when Jupiter tours the 11th house, you have an excellent opportunity to network with others. This can be a fun-filled social calendar or you could be joining various civic organizations for which you share a kinship or sense of tribe.
Luck comes through the various acquaintances you make along the way. Many of these folks will have a humanitarian bent and are likely to be well-traveled, well-educated and magnanimous to boot. Sharing ideas and discussing intellectual pursuits are all highlighted. Your horizons, goals and vision for society are boosted and you will do well when working in tandem with like-minded people to accomplish common goals. Use technology to share your ideas with the world and get connected!
Charisma, charm, self-confidence and the ability to laugh at yourself make you popular within your social circle. This would be a great transit for someone who makes a living as a motivational speaker for Jupiter gives you esprit de corps, leadership skills and the ability to get people fired up over your ideas.
The 11th house is a visionary place. When I think of Martin Luther King, I can’t help but imagine that his dream for a better society had a lot to do with the 11th house. Despite the way society was, he could imagine a better world…and the 11th house is known for being very future oriented. Since it is traditionally ruled by Uranus and Saturn, it has a revolutionary feel to it. There is both a desire to break the rules and change the way things work while operating within the current constructs of society. Martin Luther King did just that. He used legal systems, processes, churches and organizations to change the very codes and mores of society that were no longer serving the collective well.
You could call this part of the chart the house of dreamers, astrologers and those devoted to championing humankind.
Lucky breaks can come from your efforts at work since the 11th house rules gifts from the king (your employer). It also has a lot to do with your acceptance on the world stage, so any creative endeavor you are putting forth through the 5th house will gain acceptance or disdain through the 11th. With Jupiter touring this local, acceptance is likely unless it is forming a difficult aspect to some malefic planets.
Aside from enjoying accolades or praise for a project, the benevolence and hope you feel often comes from within your circle of friends. Championing projects you feel passionate about could also bring you a tremendous boost and sense of well-being. Jupiter wants you to feel inspired and hopeful no matter where it lands in your chart. Just be aware that Saturnian limitations and rules will need to be confronted along the way, even if you are doing something to better the planet.
Use harmony and collaborative skills while tackling projects for the brotherhood of man and expect things to go well. If the Universe tosses you a coke bottle amidst all of this joyous elbow-rubbing, use it to toast your success with the like-minded friends who have supported your vision along the way!
