Jupiter in Astrology
Members Content

* Jupiter in General -- Your Inner Self of Expansion, Morality and Abundance ---> Jupiter is about expansion ---> In Astrology, Jupiter represents your ability to expand your intellectual horizons through advanced study and travel. It widens your cultural connections by showing you how other people conduct their lives and how you can incorporate foreign concepts and ideas into your own ways of thinking and living. It fuels your optimism and confidence -- your power of positive thinking.

* What Does Jupiter Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> 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 ...

* 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 Sun is about self-identity ... the values you want to embody and display by being the person you truly are. The Moon is about family values ... emotional values ... habits, instincts, and legacies from your past. Mercury is about intellectual values and interests.


More about Jupiter

* Jupiter Retrograde -- Expanding Your Latest Creation ---> Jupiter's interests ---> Jupiter represents your philosophical beliefs and ethical principles. It describes your ability to share authoritative knowledge ... the wisdom you've gained both through academic study and through the simple experience of living. These are the lessons you teach through the example of your own life by the ideas that guide your choices and the actions you take as a result. Jupiter's energy helps you expand your personal circle of influence and touch the lives of those who can profit from the standards you set.


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.
