Jupiter

Rules Sagittarius

Santa Claus Helps the Good Samaritan:

Generosity, growth, geniality. Greed, gluttony. It can either be fruit or weeds, good judgment or overindulgence. A symbol of Jupiter is Santa Claus, who gives without expectation of return or even acknowledgement, who leaves his presents before people even wake up.

Jupiter rules everyday religion. Everyday religion in the sense of society. Church-going, pew-sitting religion in the original sense of “bringing us together”. Perhaps this is why churches, temples, whatever, are often so lavish. Perhaps the idea is to raise the spirits of the community for a few hours a day, or to exhibit its wealth, or both.

There’s also the Court System as well, and the way you are being judged in general.

The reliance on luck, or the “justice of the universe”. The lucky penny, the sunny day-that’s Jupiter. Optimism in hard times, luck when luck is needed

Jupiter retrograde: do we become stingier, more cautious, more depressed when Jupiter goes retrograde? Do we turn our generosity inward during this time? Or does it work like Mercury retrograde-the effects of our generosity don’t go as planned?

Jupiter in the houses: First,( Watch your weight! Jupiter rising can, unless badly aspected, help pack on the pounds. You love wearing your wealth on you. Bling, anyone?. If not bling, a lot of happy looking stuff. You can be quite an optimist at times, jovial and prompt to sit around (and I do mean sit around) the house. Second (Good for money, acquisitive, you are what you own, and what you own can be quite beneficial)., Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Eigghth, NInth, Tenth, Eleventh, Twelfth.

Jupiter in the Signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra,Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces.

Jupiter takes 12 years to go around the Zodiac, so every year each sign has the benefit of its generosity.

The shadow side of Jupiter: excess. If it’s money-greed. If it’s food-overweight and them some, the excessive eating and lust for food. Taking useless and reckless chances just for fun, trusting in an unjustified luck, like playing dodgeball with a subway train. Sometimes combined with excessive religiousity with a careless regard for needed restraint and caution. Which can lead to Saturn’s outside restraint-confinement and the intervention of the outer law, whether it be the law of nature or the actual law.
