The expanding, enriching possibility
of luck and opportunity,
which adds to life and widens it.

JupiterJupiter, 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 years

In 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:

Aries   Dragon

Taurus   Snake

Gemini   Horse

Cancer   Sheep

Leo   Monkey

Virgo   Rooster

Libra   Dog

Scorpio   Pig

Sagittarius   Rat

Capricorn   Ox

Aquarius   Tiger

Pisces   Rabbit

Jupiter, by Beham.
Jupiter and its traits. Woodcut by Hans Sebald Beham, from the 1530s.


Jupiter 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 age

Each 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.
