Hortense quoted my statement on Depression, Coping With Life Threatening Illness:
“These are all Jupiter-ruled things but I have really seen work well to buoy people is when they are LEARNING something and I am talking about SPORT.”
And she asked:
What do you mean by SPORT? Doing? Watching? Thank you!
Great question! I’m sorry you had to ask! I wrote that post some years ago when I thought I could write in “code” and people would get my meaning. Mars conjunct Mercury in the 9th house. Anyway…
“Sport” is a Jupiter / Sagittarius concept. “Outdoor sports” to be more specific. Think in terms of a wild horse, running free. Crap just falls away.
I was thinking about this the phrase, “Res Firma Mitescere Nescit”, when I wrote that post. It’s Latin. Roughly translated it means, “Get it up & keep it up…”
I got the phrase from the movie, “American Flyers”. That’s where the pic comes from as well. I was not the only one struck by this motto. Someone posted a thirteen second clip of the scene on youtube.
It’s all about momentum. You want to get it going and once you’ve done that, don’t stop. Push through. Continue! MOVE!
Jupiter and Sagittarius are forward-thinking, forward-moving, up, Up UP! So whatever is dogging you, this can be applied.
As an example, I had a client yesterday struggling to leave a bad relationship. How might she do that? Turn and run, Run, RUN! FLEE THE SCENE! And for Godsakes, don’t look back!
To clearly address the question, reading can be SPORT! Like when I decided to become a professional astrologer, I dedicated myself to it. I read and read and read and read… and when finished a book, I opened another.
Jupiter in Sagittarius offers everyone a chance to graduate and move on. Right now, today, it makes no sense to stand next to a pile of manure, smelling it, when you can walk away.
Aim higher. Do better. Be better, do more… go beyond where you are right now.
That right there, is SPORT.
