JUPITER AND THE URGE TO GIVE MEANING TO LIFE

EYE ON THE SKY: JUPITER AND MEANING

Jupiter represents selfless service and the energy where one finds joy in family/ community and in the love of helping others. Jupiter delights in being ethical and upholding societal laws. He beautifully embodies Karma Yogi which is doing action for one’s Guru which leads to obtaining freedom and moving toward enlightenment. Jupiter enjoys the world of prayer and religious ritual and transforms through devotion.

The core archetypes for Jupiter are expansion, wisdom, wealth, religion, faith, higher philosophy, charity, luck, and good fortune. Jupiter is connected to the sign of Sagittarius where religion and belief dominate in man’s search for why he suffers.

Jupiter delights in being a philanthropist and can get caught up in generosity and family loyalty. When Jupiter is afflicted, one can be too caught up in attachment to family and then getting hurt when children leave home and forget their parents.

An afflicted Jupiter can be a religious zealot who wants to convert the world around its causes. Jupiter may look down on those who do not share his beliefs. At its highest, he represents the love of the Guru and the attraction to spiritual teachers as infallible people.

Jupiter’s major lessons in life involve balancing humanitarian and self-righteous behavior with self-interest. Those with a strong Jupiter have to avoid forcing their beliefs on others.

The darker side of Jupiter, which may be a problem for Taurus or Libra rising, is attracting bad or not following good advice. When debilitated in Capricorn, Jupiter may lose its ethical nature and get caught up in material success and be falsely optimistic and miss a reality check.

An afflicted Jupiter can create problems with being overweight leading to problems with diabetes. From an Ayurvedic astrological perspective, Jupiter can create abscess, flatulence, hernias and liver problems. Jupiter is connected to the liver which has 750 functions in the body and also impacts the pancreas (along with Venus).

Jupiter is connected to Brihaspati, the high priest of God and seeks to reveal the Divine Plan for the spiritual soul in order to send the native on his mission to rediscover his own Divinity. As an advisor, he has to make sure that he only answers questions when asks and does not give advice to foster some personal agenda.

Jupiter owns Sagittarius and has a fiery enthusiasm for bringing others to God and fostering ethical behavior. Jupiter is friends with the Sun, Moon, and Mars. Jupiter is enemies with the business planets [e.g. Saturn] and the planets of personal pleasure like Venus and Mercury. He is the most powerful planet in being able to tame the strong desire nature of the North Node, Rahu. Jupiter can support Ketu by creating wisdom and devotion.

 

From a professional viewpoint, Jupiter in the 1st house of Sagittarius or Pisces rising can be spiritual teachers, lawyers, judge, scholar/ college professor, stockbroker, volunteer, charity worker, minister, advisor or coach.

Jupiter is strongest in the 1st house where his wisdom maximizes one’s operating system with good judgment. Jupiter is weakest in the 3rd house and if place there, he can get caught up with fun, sexual games and be taken off his mission of Higher wisdom and higher knowledge.

If you have a strong, positive Jupiter in your chart you have learned the karmic lesson: as you sow, so shall you reap. Your good luck from past lives is returning and past generosity is coming back to you. If Jupiter is afflicted in your chart in the 3rd, 8th or 12th houses or in difficult signs like Capricorn, Libra or Taurus, then you may still need to learn lessons around blind belief, being too extravagant, or not learning from past mistakes. An afflicted Jupiter may show up as poor judgment or getting caught up in gambling and risk-taking. We have to avoid false optimism which can lead to picking wrong partners or making bad decisions.

Ultimately, Jupiter needs to learn the importance of joy and celebration and using its past life karma and wealth to help those in need. A strong Jupiter can bring others to the Divine without being pushy or self-righteous. Without Jupiter and hope, we can be lost in suffering. However, too much hope and not facing reality can lead into a Pollyanna life ungrounded in reality. Finding the balance is always a long journey for the Jupiter soul.
