Jupiter in Sagittarius
Jupiter is in his own sign here and is essentially dignified. Therefore, Jupiter has an easier time asking for things from the cosmic soul based upon its own nature. As a result, the native is very enterprising and optimistic and is generally fortunate, especially for the topics (houses) that Jupiter rules. They are high minded and often have an interest in philosophy and ethics or religion. They often rise to positions of importance, easily gaining the trust and promotion of others. They are more adept at dealing with foreign affairs and customs than most, and have good luck while traveling. They seem to be presented with opportunities at just the right moment to be able to make the most of them. They are good at bringing out the best in other people by inspiring them and making them feel good about themselves. They often have farsighted visions of what is possible but prefer to have others work out the details. With difficult aspects, they can be pushy, indiscriminate, self righteous, narrow minded and fanatical.
In a diurnal chart, the heat purifies the vision and the dryness makes it distinct. If Jupiter is also above the horizon, it is in hayz in addition to being of the sect in favor. As a result, their faith is beyond the need for verification, and they are good at matters of philosophy, religion or ethics. They are easily trusted and promoted because they are well liked by superiors. These natives rarely ever have problems with depression and are very good at motivating others as well as themselves. If Mars aspects, they should watch a tendency to be fanatical or self righteous.
In a nocturnal chart, the moistness of night blurs distinctions and the coldness makes the vision impure by grouping like and unlike together in closer proximity. As a result, faith is less reliable, and seeing takes precedence. The hint here is that with seeing comes lack of trust and a need for verification. The native is likely to be caught up in ethical ambiguities from time to time. This is all the more likely if Saturn aspects. It should be noted that Jupiter is dignified by being in its own trigon by night in addition to being in its own domicile, so this position is fortunate in that Jupiter is able to determine fairly if the standards being set by the bound lord are being adhered to. This should help to clear up the ambiguities to some extent.
