Jupiter in the Complete Horoscope
The Resource of Luck and Opportunity in Classical Astrology
The expanding, enriching possibility
of luck and opportunity,
which adds to life and widens it.
Jupiter, the biggest planet in the solar system, stands for expansion and good fortune in astrology. It may seem odd that luck should be a fixed capacity within the human being, but our experience tells us that this indeed seems to be the case.
Some of us are lucky, and some not. Also, we can be fortunate in some aspects of our lives, and much less in others. This is what Jupiter reveals in the horoscope.
The basic trait of the planet is expansion: in what fields of life we experience a multitude, and get enriched. Jupiter shows what our lives will mainly be about.
Chinese yearsIn Chinese astrology, each year is given one of their twelve Zodiac signs. This is decided by Jupiter, which takes about a year to traverse a sign. The Chinese also have twelve signs in their Zodiac, but their names are different.
Here are the twelve Zodiac signs and their Chinese counterparts:
Jupiter in the ZodiacHere are short descriptions of how each Zodiac sign influences Jupiter, your luck and success, when that's where it is in your natal chart.
Aries brings surprises and "easy come - easy go".
Taurus brings material gains and capacity to increase them.
Gemini brings good fortune in small matters, and a sense that life is easy, that you get what you wish for.
Cancer brings a sense of joy, and happiness seems near at hand.
Leo brings good fortune and some ease to achieve personal success.
Virgo brings capacity to get lots of things done, and an ability to succeed in most trades.
Libra brings balance to life and the ability to move forward, step by step.
Scorpio brings surprises, both good and bad, but always intense.
Sagittarius brings opportunity to move on and on and on.
Capricorn brings success in constructive and concrete matters, the ability to accomplish great things.
Aquarius brings success in intellectual matters and plenty of ideas popping up all the time.
Pisces brings emotional turmoil, and many rewarding experiences.
KeywordsHere are the twelve Zodiac signs, and keywords for the character they give to Jupiter, i.e. your luck and success:
RulerJupiter rules over Sagittarius, the sign of freedom, which means that it tends to be the most obvious and enforced in this sign. It exalts in Gemini. It fits the best in mutable signs, like the two mentioned, and prefers the elements fire and air over earth and water. In fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) it is somewhat restrained, especially in Taurus and Aquarius.
Planet ageEach of the heavenly bodies represents a period in your life of about seven years. In the case of Jupiter it is the period of adult life where we usually get the most success, and our career peaks. It is right after the strife of the Mars period. That's approximately when you're 35 to 42 years old. What you have worked for in the Mars period (35-42) is rewarded in the Jupiter period.
