Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the last sign of autumn -- November 22 to December 21.
Opening up your world
Jupiter, colorful and immense, dwarfs the Earth by comparison. It is named for the mythological King of the ancient Roman Gods. (The Greeks called him Zeus.)
In Astrology, it symbolizes your philosophical foundations, your urge to expand beyond existing intellectual, educational and cultural limits ... and your sense of abundance, generosity and charity. Jupiter gives and receives everything in abundance ... and is always willing to share.
Newcomers to Astrology quickly decide Venus -- the symbol for love and money -- is hands-down their favorite planet. In fact, it should be Jupiter, and anyone who sticks around and learns more Astrology than their Sun sign / Moon sign stuff snaps to this pretty fast.
Jupiter is "everybody's favorite planet" because it so bountifully represents the very best of life's treasures for you to experience and offer. It moves you beyond personal issues and opens up society's gifts, opportunities and offerings.
The world's treasures ...
It gets you "out of the house," and shows you the cultural enrichments in your local community ... then what your nation and a higher education can provide ... and then, it invites you to travel, where you find the bounty of the whole world -- the ancient world, the contemporary world, and the intellectual world. It shows you how other people think, live and do things ... and how you can adapt these to support the life you want to live.
The Inner Self Jupiter represents (Your Inclusive, Philosophical Self.) creates your social conscience and ethical structures. It promotes your education -- academically and through practical experience. It helps you assemble a rich supply of resources -- intellectual, cultural, financial, spiritual. These become part of your greater self ... and then you share with others.
Yours for the asking ...
Jupiter energy expands your body and mind. This includes physical weight gain (when Jupiter passes through your Sun sign) through too many chances to live the good life. It certainly includes intellectual gain, through higher education and learning experiences that enrich your mind, develop your wisdom and make you a more tolerant, wise, eclectic and well-cultured citizen of the world.
It also brings you luck and benefits you don't have to work hard for -- and may not appreciate because they came too easily. These may be gifts, but you still have to develop them. But because they cost you nothing, you may let them slide. It's a sad truth: people don't value what they get for free.
Karmic astrologers say Jupiter delivers the gifts and rewards you've built up in other lives so you can enjoy them now and use them to do more good work. It also sets up future harvests, and a wise soul grabs those seeds ... and plants them.
