Jupiter in Astrology – The Path to Success

posted by AstroManda on January 3, 2013

WHERE IS JUPITER IN YOUR BIRTH CHART?

Does this area of your chart really indicate a lucky break? We hear about Jupiter as the bringer of luck and the Santa Claus of the cosmos. Jupiter’s placement in the chart indicates the way to success and happiness and of course like all things in astrology, the question “how much?”, “in which area of life?”, “though what process?” depends on the sign and house position of Jupiter and aspects made by it. Jupiter is the natural ruler of the zodiac sign Sagittarius and hence its placement, the house where Sagittarius is found, and the condition of the 9th house are all areas where Jupiter’s energy can be seen.

Jupiter was called “Zeus” in Greek mythology and he ruled the heaven and earth, and kept order in the Universe. When angered he is known to throw lightning bolts to control chaos. It’s not so hard to find this sharpness especially in the manner of communication with people who have strong Sagittarius in their charts. Jupiter had hoard of lovers though whom he bore exceptional kids. His wife, Juno was not happy about this and was always busy finding ways to punish his lovers. This indicates Jupiter’s negative qualities of excess, exaggeration and extravagancy.

Jupiter’s highest goal is to find truth by whatever means and this may be a reason why Jupiter is linked to religion and philosophy. Jupiter helps us to find the higher meaning through reflection, higher education, and by taking risks in life. Jupiter also rules law, long distance travel, and foreign cultures. Jupiter’s placement in the chart shows the area of life where the person is pushed to explore, expand, seek success, and find truth. A well placed Jupiter is a blessing and can neutralize or balance other struggles indicated in the natal chart.

The house ruled by Jupiter is also important as it indicates the needs of the person in relation to success, finding truth, etc. For example if someone has Jupiter ruling the 5th house (which means 5th house is Sagittarius) and the Jupiter is in the 10th house in Taurus, then the person has the need to explore and find success through expressing his/her creativity (Jupiter ruling 5th) and since this energy is transferred to teh 10th house (Jupiter located in 10th house), the person may have a career in a creative field. If the Jupiter is well placed, it may be easy for the person to know what steps to take to achieve the goald of being creative in one’s career.

Jupiter in First House: This is inherently a lucky placement for Jupiter because the person has a personality that draws people and success. First house is about how people project their energy and people with Jupiter in the first house are usually confident, jovial, risk takers and easily liked by others. Jupiter’s expansiveness is sometimes seen in their tendency to put on weight and to do things in an excessive manner. This is a blessing and it is important that the person uses it with caution.

Jupiter in Second House: Here Jupiter can bring luck with money and the person is usually optimistic that their material needs will be met. However, with this placement, one can end up squandering money and resources by being a spend thrift. This is usually so because Jupiter in 2nd person may tend to live larger that they can afford and buy things spontaneously. There may also be a tendency to take risks with money through gambling, etc.

Jupiter in the Third House: Third house is about communication, collecting data and learning through being detailed, and relationships with siblings and neighbors. So although the person may be confident in how they communicate and connect with others, there may be some struggle in expressing this energy as Jupiter here may not have the patience and interest in details required to do the learning. It may be seen as over confidence or bragging in the manner of communication or in the way they study in school. They may be lucky in having supportive siblings and neighbors. There is a general feeling of contentment with the immediate environment.

Jupiter in the 4th house: Generally Jupiter in the angular houses tends to be lucky, and I see this position as a great blessing. It indicates well balanced emotions, happy childhood, strong roots, parents and family that are supportive and helpful. If not aware, the person can take this blessing for granted and become over confident and careless in how they treat others. This placement can also be luck for buying houses, property, remodeling and building.

Jupiter in the 5th house: Indicates luck and happiness through one’s children and in creative endeavors. Agatha Christie has Jupiter in the fifth house and made success through her creativity, and was very close to her only child and daughter, Rosalind Hicks who fought to protect the reputation and literary legacy of her mother. She was also an ardent fan of her mother’s books and would read them repeatedly in childhood. The issue here is that since Jupiter expands whatever it touches, the person could have a bloated ego.

Jupiter in the 6th house: This placement provides a positive attitude towards work and keeping up with daily schedules. The person is well organized and is a creature of good habits. Also, the person is lucky with finding jobs and gets along well with co-workers and authority figures.

Jupiter in 7th house: Once again, Jupiter in an angle is a blessed placement. Seventh house is to do with relationships and the person is usually lucky and finds support and happiness through relationships and marriage. This is a good placement for marketing oneself or in working with others in partnership.

Jupiter in 8th house: This placement is good for joint resources as in a marriage, investments, tax, insurance money and inheritances. Jupiter in 8th is also about peaceful death. The person may be lucky in finding intimate relationships and in sexual matters. There is a need to find truth in occult matters like astrology.

Jupiter in 9th house: This is a strong position for Jupiter due to accidental dignity. Jupiter works well in the 9th house as the thinking here is broad, philosophical, expansive (not detailed). This is a great position for higher education, long distance travel and religious matters. With Jupiter in 9th, the person is on a continual truth finding mission!

Jupiter in 10th house: Jupiter in 10th house is angular and hence brings luck with career matters. People with this placement know what they want in terms of job and career and have the good instinct to do the right things to achieve their goals. They are often successful with career matters. They usually get along with authority figures and handle responsibility in a positive and confident manner.

Jupiter in 11th house: This is a lucky position for a leader in a community, to feel a sense of belonging with groups and to form supportive and positive friendships. With this placement, friendships can end up being more important than other close relationships and the person usually has one or more friends who are like family.

Jupiter in 12th house: Twelfth is a spiritual area of the chart and the person needs to be aware to use this energy in a conscious manner. In this position, Jupiter will be forced to forego its active quest for truth which requires some amount of objectivity, in favor of using the intuitive faculty to merge with the higher powers. Hence this is not an easy placement for Jupiter and the person may express this struggle in a subconscious manner.

    My jupiter is in 11th house and its true I am blessed with good friends. I am also close to some of my near relatives like cousins, and aunts more than my siblings and parents. But my Jupiter makes square aspect to Neptune – what does this mean?

  2. AstroManda Says:

    Hello Javali, Thanks for your question. Jupiter in 11th house aspecting Neptune could mean that there is a struggle between your need to belong to a group or mingle with friends and your spiritual quest. You didn’t mention where Neptune is located , so not able to elaborate in a specific manner. But generally speaking, you may be blessed with some natural creativity towards music, dance, etc. but there may be some struggle to actually explore them to the fullest extent. This frustration could be due to lack of self-discipline or/and self indulgence, both common problem with hard aspects to Jupiter. Also, you may harbor unrealistic dreams that cannot become successful endeavours. With this square, it is important to consider the practicality of a goal, before you shoot towards it. Since your Jupiter is in the 11th, you can inspire others as long as you put effort into the process.

    After reading what Manda has to say,i thought let me write something about Jupiter from the vedic astrology point of view.Jupiter is a mighty planet and is called the giant of the solar system.It has a diameter of 88000 miles.It takes about 12 years to go once round the Sun.Mythologically, Jupiter is the perceptor of Gods.Old Greeks considered Jupiter as the father of Gods and called him Zeus.Egyptians call him ‘Ammon’.Typical Jupiterians are usually termed jovial people owing to the fact that Jupiter gives qualities such as hope,optimism,kindness,compassion,justice,honesty etc to its natives.In the physical body,Jupiter relates to Liver,veins,arteries and thighs.Careers such as being a judge,lawyer,doctor,priest,teacher etc suit the Jupiterian’s personalty very well.(to be contd)

    Thanks Rup for taking the time to explain…I know Jupiter plays an important role in Vedic Astrology

  5. Rup Krishen Says:

    (contd from above) Jupiter is called the ‘greater fortune’ because unless he is ill placed in the horoscope,he bestows a considerable amount of good luck on its natives making them fit for responsible positions in the society or the business world. If Jupiter is strong and well placed in a chart,the native will get providential help even at the last minute to ride over the difficulties and get rid of evil caused by bad positioning of other planets.Jupiter makes its natives,law abiding,true,honest,sincere and dutiful.
    If Jupiter is afflicted in a horoscope,the native will be unconventional,will be an extremist,extravagant and lavish.The other negative effects could be false hopes,over optimism,worry on account of children,loss of reputation etc.
    Jupiterians are well built and may have big bellies.As said above,our fortunes are governed by Jupiter who is also considered the chief governor of money.Last,but not the least, Jupiter is considered to be the significator of sons.Thus it will be found in quite a few horoscopes with a debilitated Jupiter,that the native has no sons (like the present US president Obama).
    Jupiter owns Sagittarius and Pisces.He is exalted in Cancer,the highest exaltation points being at 5 degrees of Cancer.Sun,Moon and Mars are friends of Jupiter while Mercury and Venus are inimical.Saturn is neutral to Jupiter.
    P.S.In case ppl found this interesting,i can give the results of Jupiter in the 12 houses by Vedic Astrology in my next write up.
