The year Jupiter spent in Sagittarius, Sphere + Sundry was honored to have released two series in the Greater Benefic’s name. The first was Jupiter’s Lightning Rod, which expressed its fast, hot, and loose, “shoot from the hip” aspects, while the second was Jupiter’s Bounty, a gentle and fruitful ode to intentional growth, wisdom, nurturing, service, and opulence.
Jupiter left the wide open prairies of his own rulership on December 2nd, entering the rocky mountain passes of Capricorn — its own personal hell as far as sign based dignity is concerned. For more on that, see Austin Coppock’s excellent article: Of Dark Wings and Magic Rings.
Functionally, this development means Jupiter is out of high-grade talismanic commission for the next 1-2 years, so as a going away party, we scheduled one last astro-magical harvest for the mid-morning of October 23rd, 2019. This election saw our patron planet rising in Sagittarius during his own hour, the Moon providing a supportive trine from the Leo-end of a conjunction to Regulus, crowned and well renowned King of fixed stars. The chart can be found in the image gallery for each offering.
The “official” Jupiter in Sagittarius series results, a pure take on the planet and sign combination, without the frills of a themed overlay.
It carries the warmth, speed, and single pointed determination captured by Lightning Rod, but without actual lightning charged components throughout, it’s much easier on the nervous system, and far more appropriate for frequent application. Many of the scent profiles are similar — heavy on cinnamon, spice, and winter warmers. And lo, Jup-Juice returns!
Jupiter in Sagittarius also carries a positive stability reminiscent of Jupiter’s Bounty, but with more generalized purpose and faster orientation.
The third element is the striking clarity and brightness Regulus brings to bear as a supporting background influence. Light, literally and figuratively, makes things easier to navigate, illuminating the terrain before and behind our course. There’s a subtle, yet sanitizing, clarifying aspect to the charge, banishing melancholy and cutting through undesirable emotional and worldly interference like a hot knife through butter, or, more aptly, a blazing arrow in an ink-black sky.
It has a penetrating quality, injecting positive Jupiterian rays into the core of a matter, overlooking whatever stands in the way between self-improvement, optimism, good humor, and wisdom, bypassing that which does not serve. There’s a purity and nobility to it, the gentle, persistent hum of a higher, brighter purpose… the knowing that better things are possible, and will come. That through management of our own states and practices, we can help usher that reality into being.
Jupiter at its best is great for increasing visionary capacity and gaining a wider perspective, lowering anxiety and ambient bad feelings. It helps support in goal setting, Jupiter remediation, cancelling the bad and emphasizing the good, improving one’s mood and mindset, and serves as a strong ally for self-improvement.
It’s the matchbook, thermal blanket, water, and glucose packet good luck (or better yet, good planning!) placed in our journeying knapsack, the one we’ll thank the Gods for should we ever find ourselves going through hell (and need to keep going). Some aspects of 2020 and beyond are probably going to feel like that, full disclosure. Half the battle is keeping the faith (Jupiter keyword).
Jupiter can be a productive adjunct to work by improving the quality of one’s ideas, attitudes, and ability to produce as an individual or in a group setting, but can also lack interest in meaningless toil (how a benefic do). It’s perfect for brain storming, reading, and enjoying oneself and one’s surroundings, boosting good cheer and greasing many of life’s wheels. It brings good fortune and better luck than one might have otherwise encountered, and is also good for helping to uplift and stabilize finances and other external circumstances.
Jupiter in Sagittarius, of all three Jupiter series, is the best go-to for a balanced, all-purpose Jupiter. It can be worn regularly, used during weekly Jupiterday ritual observations, and as a component in non-planetary spellwork or magical endeavor. It’s best for boosting morale and taking tangible action, though if you’re looking for a gentler, sweeter, and softer, more indulgent take, Jupiter’s Bounty may be the more desirable fit, as the series you’re reading about now has a bit more kick-ass and drive to it.
Jupiter Magic While Jupiter is in Capricorn
Note that in real-time, much of Jupiter’s transiting beneficence is busy negating negatives in its Fall of Capricorn, rather than providing bountiful opportunities for real-time expansion.
Benefics struggle in signs that aren’t conducive to their ability to do their jobs well, and much of their energy gets mired down in running interference and doing damage control, rather than providing an excess of the joviality or joy they’re typically renowned for.
From an astro magic and talismanic perspective, Jupiter in Capricorn isn’t the time to be performing big Jupiter magic or creating new magical items in devotion to Jupiter. That’s the gift and curse of astrological magic — the point is to harvest when the harvest is good, in hopes of preserving qualities at the peak of their desirability.
It’s far better to employ talismanic materia almost passively, letting the stored charge work its magic, than to ask Jupiter for fresh aid while under transiting duress. Each bottle of talismanic materia is a battery full of Jupiter in Sagittarius’ positive, capable energy, infinitely more precious now that well functioning, high quality Jupiter isn’t copiously floating about the aether at virtually every turn.
Jupiter in Capricorn will benefit Capricorn significations in the natal chart, because the Greater Benefic is now officially helping to cut the severity and heaviness of Saturn and Pluto in an already dark and heavy sign.
Working with Jupiterian talismans and talismanic materia will benefit those topics even more, and also provide a magical anchor to better, more Jupiterian times, lifting the heart and mind from the trenches of 2020 and beyond, giving a sense of hope, optimism, and faith that all will be well, and all is in service to our shared journey through transitional times.
We thank Elizabeth Barrial of Twilight Alchemy Lab and Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, who generously formulated ♃ distinct limited edition talismanic perfumes for the occasion, per her equivalent election.

Each order comes with basic instructions for use and suggested times of application. It also includes an invitation to the private client forum (now off of social media) for support from creator and (fun, vibrant, supportive!) community.

Jupiter’s LaughterJupiter in Sagittarius, Series, Talismanic PerfumesOne of ♃ talismanic perfume oils formulated for the Jupiter in Sagittarius series by Elizabeth Barrial of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Twilight Alchemy Lab, per the equivalent election in her location. Of it, she shares —
This is where I really leaned in particularly hard on the Sagittarius aspect of this election. This is an oil of good humor, optimism, and creativity. It will help bring joy where there is sorrow, and will burn through cynicism, pessimism, and despair like a lightning bolt. Jupiter’s Laughter is a catalyst for creativity in all endeavors, especially when you are trying to push past a block caused by melancholy, confidence issues, sorrow, or ennui. It is a great oil to use prior to events to maximize your charisma and your openness to friendship and connection, and to enhance the pleasure you receive from socializing.
This oil has a side-effect of making good jokes funnier, and it enhances your ability to deliver a punchline. Go figure.

Jup-Juice2020 Holiday Grab Bag, Jupiter in Sagittarius, Series, WatersNote: A new edition is available as part of Jupiter in Sagittarius II!
A beloved favorite, given new life just in time for the holidays! Consecrated mulling spices and citrine distilled with a combination of water collected during a thunder storm (8/9/19) and freshly drawn from the underbelly of the earth (well) via two copper alembics, initiated at the start of Jupiter’s hour during the ritual operation and produced until the following hour of Jupiter. This hydrosol was mixed with a small amount of grain alcohol to preserve and left to bask upon the Jupiter altar, stored with the rest of the materia since to imbue its positive characteristics and “program” its charge. Synchronistically, the day the offering photos were staged (+ the day of launching this series), the air was heavy with cloudy white mist (see photo gallery), mirroring the clouds within the freshly distilled liquid and a nod to Jupiter’s rulership over “generous bodily fluids”, including those of... a prolific nature. Shout-out to Zeus’ many offspring. The result is an uplifting, motivating, and utterly delicious spray that can be conveniently applied any time one finds themselves in need of a jolt of good fortune, improved attitude, optimistic stimulation, and good cheer. Note that this is the only offering from the Jupiter in Sagittarius series containing lightning charged components, and is therefore closest to the Lightning Rod series in effect and temperament. Use to set the tone of a space before holiday or social gatherings, as well as ritual. Spray as an offering over wealth altars, or those in devotion to Jupiterian spirits. Stimulating, warming, and motivating. Instills a sense of bright, yet grounded hopefulness, cuts melancholy and helps emotionally reframe anxiety into an exciting sense of potential and possibility. Excellent for application before engaging in brain storming sessions and yang activities for self-improvement and goal achievement, ranging from going to professional development conferences, engaging active self-help practices and materials, running marathons, working out, or networking for opportunities. Or, simply use to help get yourself off the couch and out of an emotional rut. We start from where we're at Arrives in a glass spray bottle with hand drawn Jupiter in Sagittarius glyph and keepsake citrine, available in a 1/2 oz travel or sample size for $28 or full 2 oz for $64 Golden and clear drops of essential oil resulting from the distillation are still present, in some bottles more than others.
