About Jupiter

* Jupiter is by far the largest planet in our Solar System. It is the fifth planet from the Sun and orbits between Mars and Saturn.

* It takes Jupiter about 12 years to circle through the Zodiac, and it normally spends about a year in each sign.

* Jupiter usually retrogrades in each sign as it travels, and spends about 4 months in retrograde when it does. ---> See: * Jupiter Retrograde

Quick Notes on Jupiter

More about Jupiter

* Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the 9th Sign of the Zodiac and is associated with the 9th House of the Natural Horoscope -- the one that begins with 0° Aries on the Ascendant.

* Jupiter's symbol is the centaur, the archer, a mythological creature half-man and half horse. This combines both the animal nature and the spiritual / higher mind natures of humankind. On the one hand the centaurs could be brutish. On the other hand, they were often revered as scholars and teachers.

* In keeping with this metaphor, Jupiter is often considered the thinking person's planet. It deals in specialized fields and sophisticated knowledge. It organizes the cultural wisdom and social norms into teachable, logical systems.

Still more about Jupiter

* Jupiter governs the functions of higher learning and the abstract mind. Its interests include legal concepts, philosophical principles and ethical standards.

* Jupiter energy encourages you to explore new ideas and new horizons -- physically and intellectually. It encourages all kinds of growth and expansion -- even to excess. Where Jupiter energy is involved, enough is never enough and there's no such thing as "too much."

* Jupiter energy is present in the formulation of your ideology, your religious beliefs and your spiritual principles.

* Jupiter: The Gifts of a Lifetime ---> Jupiter is about seeing life from The Big Picture perspective ---> It's about values ---> I could make a case that The Sun, The Moon, and every planetary placement in your chart are about values.

The Moon is about family values ... emotional values ... habits, instincts, and legacies from your past.

From the Blogs, Ezines
and Elsewhere

From EDA: Jupiter ---> Everyday Astrology December 26, 2020 Jupiter ---> As an Astrologer, I often see the planets -- what they represent & rule -- as sometimes overlapping in their territory, sometimes contradictory & antagonistic to one another ... and sometimes a planet builds & expands on certain elements of another planet's turf. For me, this happens when dealing with Jupiter and the Sun. Just as the Sun is the center of our Solar System --

Jupiter Direct -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology August 12, 2019 Jupiter Going Direct ---> When an Astrologer mentions a planet is retrograde, some in the audience cringe. Retrograde planets are thought to cause trouble, bring problems, mess things up for innocent, hard-working people. Well, yes, sometimes, that happens -- until you look at The Big Picture. Jupiter came out of retrograde this morning -- and, glacially for a while, is moving direct again.

Jupiter Retrograde -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Does this feel like the story of your life? ---> Everyday Astrology September 16, 2020 Jupiter Retrograde ---> You've probably heard about Mercury Retrograde. Many people have. Many even have a fairly good general idea about what it means: misunderstandings, poor communication, technological screw-ups, trouble traveling, missed appointments, traffic jams. Well, all the planets in your horoscope (that's everything except the Sun and the Moon) have a retrograde cycle as part of their travels.


Related to Jupiter

* Born with the Sun in Sagittarius -- The Sagittarius Character ---> The Wandering Philosopher ---> Sagittarius is the philosopher, teacher, religious leader and moral conscience of the Zodiac. Sagittarius souls are vivacious, dynamic, and always have plenty of energy to burn. They are fueled by an adventurous, restless spirit that keeps them always on the move, going places and doing things -- often physically but for sure intellectually.
