One of the biggest questions people have during this moment in human history, what is my purpose? What is the meaning of me being here? What gives my life more meaning?

To complicate things even further, not everyone finds meaning in the same things.

I believe we are facing a deep crisis in the direction we are headed as a society and as individuals. The search for deeper meaning and commitment has been substituted by shallow pursuits of pleasure.

I don’t want to knock down pleasure. Pleasure is good, it’s very necessary for our lives. But it is not the end all be all goal.

So, how to find more meaning in our lives through the map or lens of astrology?

In astrology for that, we look at the 9th house in a person’s natal chart as well as the placement of the sign of Sagittarius, and most importantly, the placement of the planet Jupiter. Following each of these in my own personal chart has brought me an extra dose of meaning.

Locating these and taking action accordingly has the potential of giving Your otherwise seemingly empty life more depth and meaning.

Let us look at some placements in a natal chart and give real-life material examples of what that person could do to add more meaning to their existence.

Above is the natal chart of the famous actress Sandra Bullock. I chose her chart randomly but I know how much people love celebrities these days, so there’s a hidden agenda right there.

So, what could Sandra do if she’d ever find her life devoid of meaning?

Let’s start with the sign of Sagittarius in the 6th house. First let us mention that the 6th house is work, our workplace, employees, people below us, people less fortunate, diet, routine, pets, being of service.

Going for those themes can immediately increase the meaning in Sandra’s life. She might get a pet or go take care of animals at shelters. Or go towards her work (which is funnily enough in the sign of Sagittarius, Sag rules movies), start a new health routine and/or diet. All these things can add an extra dose of meaning to her life.

What else can add meaning to her life?

She has the 9th house in the sign of Aquarius. Aquarius represents our friends, social circles, financial goals, economic goals, big networks of people, science, the more logical side of astrology (scientific even I dare say). So, our chosen heroine can find more meaning in friends, or even believe that friends give meaning to life. Setting and achieving financial, economic goals, belonging to big groups of people. She could even find deeper meaning in astrology, or maybe even learning astrology (9th house is the house of higher learning, higher education).

You can see there are many areas to find meaning in Your life.

Let’s look at the planet Jupiter as well.

She has the great benefactor Jupiter in the 12th house in the sign of Taurus.

The 12th house represents far away countries, spiritual things, meditation, other realms of existence, bed pleasures, intuition. The sign of Taurus is the five senses (also a sign that likes to indulge in pleasures), nature, food, beauty, finance, flowers, music, song, luxuries.

Good things for her to do to increase meaning in her life even more so: going on vacation and traveling to far away countries, enjoying bed pleasures, good food, meditation, meditation in nature, preserving nature, being in nature in far-away countries, connecting to other realms of existence.

There are many ways You can add some additional meaning to Your life. You just have to know where to look.
