In astrology, the planet Jupiter is one of the nine planets or celestial bodies that govern your existence here on Earth.
Jupiter In Astrology
Jupiter is the facility through which we gain knowledge, expand, and explore spiritual teachings. It is also known as Guru and is considered the most benefic planet in the solar system. It's responsible for bringing positive energy and helping to stabilize our progress.
The symbol for Jupiter is a cross with an arc curving to the right side and tucked into the left arm.
Significance In Astrology
Jupiter is one of the largest planets in the solar system and has the rulership of two signs in the zodiac- Sagittarius and Pisces. In the sign of Sagittarius, one is seeking divine wisdom and then dissolving everything in Pisces.
Placement In Different Houses & Zodiac Signs
Regardless of whether you have placements in Jupiter-ruled signs in your natal chart, the corresponding areas of life remain active.
Jupiter, being a slower-moving planet, takes about 12 years to complete a full orbit around the Sun. During this journey, it transits through the 12 houses and spends about a year in each house. As it moves through each house, we, as a collective, tend to experience the effects of its transit in different areas of our lives.
Jupiter significantly impacts several areas of life, such as finance, children, and spirituality, and even serves as the karaka for a woman's husband in their birth chart. Suppose Jupiter is well-positioned in your chart, i.e., in its sign. In that case, it can improve your ability to accept and follow advice or knowledge, ultimately increasing consciousness and ending the cycle of births.
Note: the placement of Jupiter in your chart should not be viewed as good or bad. Instead, it is up to you to use this energy wisely by cultivating it.
Jupiter In Numerology
Individuals born on the 3rd, 12th, or 21st of any month, or those with Jupiter in a difficult position, may encounter communication, nerve, or other health issues related to Jupiter-ruled body parts.
Balancing Jupiter's Energy
To balance your Jupiter's energy, you need to understand how Mercury functions in your life. Please consider the following:
How do you express your beliefs? Is it forceful or compassionate?
Do you respect all teachers or different religions or philosophies different from your own?
Do you have a cooperative relationship with your mate or men?
Do you have a cooperative relationship with your children?
Are you able to apply the knowledge that you obtain?
Harnessing Guru's Energy
Vedic Astrology suggests upayes that translate to remedies. Remedies can be helpful because you need all of the energy available to you to function at an optimal level. You can help yourself improve in specific areas by incorporating a few practices. These practices can help strengthen the expression of Jupiter in your chart.
For more individualized and advanced healing remedies, request a consultation to see what practices will benefit you the most.
For general support to improve your ability to make decisions, manage nervousness, improve sleep, etc., you may consider the following:
Breathing- use breathing exercises to improve the circulation of prana.
Visit spiritual places- such as ashrams, or build a meditation space in your home.
Study- spiritual texts or listen to spiritual texts and high-frequency sounds such as the flute, singing bowls, and chanting
Meditate to cool your brain and relax your body. Thoughts are clearer when your emotions are calm
Color Therapy- The color yellow is associated with the planet Jupiter. Wear yellow gemstones or the color white.
Fast- on Thursdays, the day ruled by Jupiter
In Conclusion, learning from a teacher, elder, or spiritual guide can be very beneficial, but we can also learn valuable lessons from every experience and everyone we encounter. Your intelligence and wisdom gained through trial and error can prevent you from repeating mistakes and help you break free from limitations. Strengthening Jupiter's influence may offer the protection and solutions you need to overcome challenges.
