Jupiter in Sagittarius individuals attract the most good fortune when they are open-handed and generous, tolerant, inspirational, and practice what they preach. They need only believe in themselves and their goals, show their enthusiasm to learn and to teach, and look at the big picture.
They can find success in travel, education, teaching, sports, publishing, and foreign cultures.
As a Fire sign Jupiter, you identify strongly with your own opinions, beliefs, and perceptions, and you may take it quite personally if others disagree with them! You make your own opportunities, and you are at your best when you are thinking in big terms, taking calculated risks, and displaying confidence. (Source: cafeastrology.com)

Jupiter in Sagittarius when well-aspected gives good fortune and general success in life, a humane, broad and philosophical mind, a reverent and religious disposition. Hence people with this position rise to the top and become leaders in their various spheres of life, finding places of prominence in church or state, scientific or philosophic enterprises or institutions. If Jupiter is afflicted in Sagittarius it makes the person sporty, fond of cheap and gaudy display, extravagant and ready to take a chance on any gamble, causes loss of social standing if born in a better environment, trouble through law, financial difficulties, narrow-minded sectarian views if incline to be religious.

9th House, House of Philosophy (Journeys). Higher education. Knowledge. Experience through expansion. Religion. Law and ethics. Foreign travel and foreign countries. Culture. Long distance travels and journeys.

Jupiter in the Twelfth House when well-aspected brings gain and success through occupations carried on in comparative seclusion such as laboratory work, work in hospitals or asylums in an executive capacity; or in a position in one of the fraternal orders which have to do with sick benefits or in the study and practice of the mystical or occult arts. If people with Jupiter in this position are personally indigent they receive much bounty from people or institutions of a fraternal or charitable nature, but if they are well-to-do they give lavishly to these purposes. If they have enemies they also have a way of turning them to friends. If Jupiter is afflicted it makes the person indolent and improvident so that in time he usually becomes the ward of one of the charitable institutions where he lives till the end of life without either trouble or worry.

The number 3 – Jupiter, Reconciling/Intuitive (Fire)
Positive traits:
– Strong sense of order and values, balanced, dynamic, struggle against limits, accurate impressions and insights, an arbiter or mediator, never-ending optimism, happy and fun-loving, enjoys life fully, independent.
Negative traits:
– Scattered energies, exaggeration, unfinished projects, lack of direction, moodiness, self-centeredness, unemotional.

Crowley: Swiftness. The remaining three cards of the suit belong to Sagittarius, which represents the subtilizing of the Fiery energy; and Mercury rules the card, thus bringing down from Chokmah the message of the original Will.
The card also refers to Hod, splendour, in the suit of Fire, whence it refers to the phenomena of speech, light, electricity. The pictorial representation of the card shows the Light-wands turned into electrical rays, sustaining or even constituting Matter by their vibrating energy. Above this restored universe shines the rainbow; the division of pure light,
which deals with maxima, into the seven colours of the spectrum, which exhibit interplay and correlation.

Waite: The card represents motion through the immovable-a flight of wands through an open country; but they draw to the term of their course. That which they signify is at hand; it may be even on the threshold.
Activity in undertakings, the path of such activity, swiftness, as that of an express messenger; great haste, great hope, speed towards an end which promises assured felicity; generally, that which is on the move; also the arrows of love.
Reversed: Arrows of jealousy, internal dispute, stingings of conscience, quarrels; and domestic disputes for persons who are married.

Fortune Telling with Playing Cards:
3 of Clubs – Love and happiness; successful marriage; a favorable long-term proposition. A second chance, particularly in an economical sense.
