There are benefits and drawbacks to all zodiac energy, and this includes Sagittarius. Even the most optimistic, buoyant, happy-go-lucky energy of Sagittarius has its duality. It is through acknowledging all aspects of zodiac sign expression that Sagittarius and other zodiac signs are able to enhance what works and temper behaviors that could cause trouble. The following is an overview of Sagittarius’ strengths and weaknesses.
Being a Jupiter-Ruled Sagittarius
There’s a reason why Sagittarius is considered one of the luckiest signs in the zodiac. Ruled by Jupiter, the planet of prosperity and abundance ensures that Sagittarius is always in touch with the energy of prosperity and abundance. Sagittarius always has a bright outlook and understands the importance of keeping the faith. Everything is possible for Sagittarius due to their inherent optimism.Read More »
It’s important to note that even with all the abundance and prosperity that Jupiter offers, this energy can have its drawbacks. Jupiter is quite expansive simply wanting to move beyond what is familiar. When unchecked, Jupiter energy “does too much.” For this reason, Sagittarius would do well to learn how to appreciate and express Jupiter energy with moderation.
The Benefits of Being A Sagittarius
When it comes to the many benefits of being a Sagittarius, where exactly do we start? With a planetary ruler such as Jupiter, Sagittarius is sure to win at life since they have the backing of one of the luckiest planets of the zodiac. This is where Sagittarius’ ingrained optimism and unwavering faith come from. Because Sagittarius expects the best, they get the best. Life is an adventure just waiting to be experienced for Sagittarius.
Jupiter brings Sagittarius all their fortunate benefits, so even when life hands out some rough patches, Sagittarius doesn’t stay down for long. There are better days coming, and Sagittarius knows this to their very core. Plus, because Jupiter offers expansion and the desire to explore, Sagittarius benefits from always seeking what is foreign or different from what they are used to. Jupiter’s blessings come easy, and Sagittarius learns fast that abundance and prosperity often come from opening themselves up to the unfamiliar.
From the perspective of other zodiac signs, some would say that Sagittarius is born with an envious amount of luck. In reality, this abundance is courtesy of their planetary ruler, Jupiter.
The Cons of Being a Sagittarius
Even Jupiter, one of the most positive abundant planets in the zodiac, has its shortcomings. Jupiter’s expansive nature can lead Sagittarius into “doing too much.” It’s as if Sagittarius takes their good attributes and pushes them to the point of negativity. For example, cake is good, but eating too much leads to a stomach ache. Sagittarius exaggerates. Their fiery nature sets pathways ablaze burning down boundaries. They embody the energy of wild horses roaming free. While freedom is lovely, Sagittarius can embody this energy to the point of appearing like a commitment-phobe.
Similarly, because Jupiter expands the mind and perspectives, the desire to know more and be more can make Sagittarius a bit haughty at times. A perfect example of this is the highly educated individual that believes they know everything. An example of this is the academic on steroids. Because Sagittarius seeks higher education and understanding, when unchecked, they can believe that they are the expert on everything. It is important for Sagittarius to understand that no matter how well-traveled and well-educated they are, they do not know everything. Sagittarius benefits from remaining a “student of life” as opposed to using their expansive mind to act as if they are the experts due to their own lived experiences.
Also, Sagittarius is known for its direct, honest nature. While this is definitely an advantage when used appropriately, this energy can shift quickly when Sagittarius’ direct approach goes too far. The honesty and directness that were once appreciated become stinging bluntness that leads to Sagittarius being brutally honest without much consideration for others.
Many of Sagittarius’ drawbacks are their positive attributes taken way too far. Whether it’s a quest for knowledge that leads to being a “know-it-all,” being a preachy hypocrite, or being blunt and honest to a fault, these are ways that Jupiter energy is expressed when it is not checked.
Using Jupiter Energy To Your Advantage
Sagittarius does well when they learn how to temper their expansive Jupiterian energies. This requires a shift in perspective where Sagittarius embodies their expansive nature while remaining appreciative and grateful. When Sagittarius sees their lucky nature as a blessing, they are more likely to know when enough is enough.
It is through the energy of Sagittarius that we learn that moderation is a virtue…even when it comes to the good things. It’s great to be optimistic, but when optimism keeps us from seeing the reality of our circumstances, this is an issue. It’s great to travel the world and engross ourselves in other cultures, but when wanderlust keeps us from forming connective bonds with others, this is a problem. It is quite laudable to be honest and forthright, but when we are so direct and blunt in the spirit of being honest that we fail to realize how our words could impact others, this is concerning.
Thus, Sagittarius energy is granted with Jupiter’s ever-expanding blessings, abundance, and luck. To get the most out of Jupiter energy, balance, gratitude, and moderation are key.
