By Jove!

Many believe that where Jupiter is in your chart, you’ll be lucky.

In large part, this is true.

But with Jupiter, luck isn’t left to chance. Instead, it’s all about timing in vision. When you understand how you fit into the bigger picture, all else falls into place.

Jupiter – the moment of light!

Jupiter is the Roman equivalent of the Greek god Zeus, whose name derives from the Indo-European ‘djeus’, which is composed of ‘deus; or deity and ‘theos’ or the moment of light. Admittedly this combination of gods and enlightenment is intriguing and indeed some suggest that Jupiter’s placement in your birth or natal chart, provides you with your own ‘divine plan.’

To give you just a taste of what this might mean for you, the following is a brief summary of Jupiter by sign:

Jupiter in Aries – you’re always on a crusade – a constant supply of fresh ideas is required to feed your fervent need for adventure and exciting lifestyle.  Beware of a certain amount of egotism however when it is channelled towards helping the community at large, it’s forgivable if not outright charming. (Applies birth dates – January 1940 – April 1940, May 1951- April 1952, April 1963- March 1964, April 1975- March 1976, March 1987- February 1988, February 1999-June 1999, November 1999 – January 2000, June 2010-August 2010,  February 2011-May 2011.)

Jupiter in Taurus – you need your feet planted firmly on the ground for you are constrained to work within the framework of the material world.   Your spiritual and religious values must, therefore, be grafted onto your need for material comfort and security.  Thus you will likely take a practical approach to religion.  Beware of fanaticism, however, for you may be prone to tenaciously held beliefs. (Applies birth dates – May 1940 – May 1941, May 1952- April 1953, April 1964- April 1965, April 1976- March 1977, March 1988- July 1988, February 1989, July 1999-October 1999, February 2000 – June 2000, June 2011-May 2012.)

Jupiter in Gemini –  you’re always on the move and by learning more and more you enlarge your breadth of spiritual vision.  Beware of holding superficial beliefs.  By nature Gemini has a penchant for novelty and change and this doesn’t give much incentive to getting to the root of things. You’ll find your spiritual path by testing your hypotheses about the divine in your head rather than in your heart. (applies birth dates – June 1941 – May 1942, May 1953- May 1954, May 1965- September 1965, November 1965 – April 1966, September 1976, April 1977 – August 1977, January 1978 – March 1978, August 1988- July 1989, July 2000 – June 2001, June 2012 – June 2013.)

Jupiter in Cancer – you connect with the divine through your emotions – by holding together a community or family.  Your path is to find unity and group solidarity in all you say and do.  Beware of meddlesomeness under the guise of trying to be helpful.  Also beware of simply espousing (without examination) your group’s religious causes and beliefs. (Applies birth dates – June 1942 – June 1943, June 1954 – May 1955, October 1965, May 1966- September 1966, February 1967 – May 1967, September 1976, September 1977 – December 1977, April 1978 – August 1978, August 1989- August 1990, July 2001 – July 2002, July 2013 – June 2014.)

Jupiter in Leo –  you need to find your deeper values through everyday living.  This is best achieved through helping others – for the hearth-flame (of which Leo is a symbol) burns ever brighter the more it is stoked.  Keep in mind, however, that Jupiter in Leo isn’t one for details.  Broader outlines and ambitious plans are more your cup of tea. (Applies birth dates – July 1943 – July 1944, June 1955 – June 1956, October 1966 – January 1967, June 1967 – Octbober 1967, March 1968 – May 1968, September 1978 – September 1979, September 1990 – August 1991, August 2002 – August 2003, July 2014 -July 2015.)

Jupiter in Virgo – religious feelings may be reduced to a sense of duty and you may feel you shoulder too much responsibility in the wake.  However uncomfortable this is, know it is here that your spiritual path lies.  For it is through relief work and service to others that you find your true calling.  There’s little doubt you’ll carry out your duties to perfection. (Applies birth dates – August 1944 – August 1945, July 1956- November 1956, March 1957 – July 1957, November 1967 – February 1968, June 1968 – October 1968, April 1969 – June 1969, October 1979 – October 1980, September 1991 – September 1992, September 2003 – September 2004, August 2015 – August 2016. )

Jupiter in Libra – broaden your spiritual horizons through making ever more contacts and friends.  Your sense of justice is strong.  But this may prove to be a disadvantage for Jupiter isn’t about being fair.  Fairness implies the weighing of scales.  But you can’t help everyone – especially when they’re on opposite sides.  So best to join in a common cause and avoid making choices, which you’ll never do well. (Applies birth dates – September 1945 – September 1946, December 1956 – February 1957, August 1957- December 1957, April 1958 – August 1958, November 1968 – March 1969, July 1969 – November 1969, May 1970 – July 1970, November 1980 – November 1981, October 1992 – October 1993, October 2004 – October 2005, September 2016 – September 2017.)

Jupiter in Scorpio –broaden your spiritual horizons through anything that helps you understand your own (and others’) motivations.  This provides you with precious insight into the meaning of life.   Beware of moralising, however.  One of the downsides of coming to grips with your faults, is the tendency to force the same process on others. (Applies birth dates – October 1946 – October 1947, January 1958 – March 1958, September 1958 – January 1959, May 1959 – September 1959, December 1969 – April 1970, August 1970 – December 1970, June 1971 – August 1971, December 1981 – December 1982, November 1993 – November 1994, November 2005 – November 2006, October 2017 – October 2018.)

Jupiter in Sagittarius – your search for a more comprehensive picture of the cosmos inclines you to do what’s necessary to live in keeping with your inner faith.   Beware, however, of boasting and self-conceit.  While the patterns of the universe may for you be clear and obvious, for others it will not be the same. (Applies birth dates – November 1947 – October 1948, December 1949 – March 1950, February 1959 -April 1959, October 1959 – February 1960, June 1960 – October 1960, January 1971 – May 1971, September 1971 – January 1972, August 1972 – September 1972, January 1979, January 1983 – January 1984, December 1994 – December 1995, December 2006 – December 2007, November 2018 – November 2019.)

Jupiter in Capricorn – your need for spiritual and religious values is directed to things of practical and ‘real worth’.  This might mean that your faith rests on dogma and ritual and that’s OK.  However you have a real opportunity to find what you need from a different material and social point of view.   Use your keen organizing abilities in the service of others and you’ll soon understand what this can mean.(Applies birth dates – November 1948 – March 1949, July 1949 – November 1949, April 1950 – August 1950, March 1960 – May 1960, November 1960 – February 1961, August 1961 – October 1961, February 1972 – July 1972, October 1972 – February 1973, February 1984 – January 1985, January 1996 – January 1997, January 2008 – December 2008.)

Jupiter in Aquarius – for you, spiritual and religious values must comply with the rules of logic – and this isn’t always for the best.   Try not to spend time persuading others to your point of view.  Instead take your facts and figures out into a wider social setting and help others to express what is most important for them. (Applies birth dates – April 1949 – June 1949, December 1949 – March 1950, September 1950 – November 1950, March 1961 – July 1961, November 1961 – March 1962, March 1973 – February 1974, February 1985 – February 1986, February 1997 – January 1998, January 2009 – December 2009.)

Jupiter in Pisces – your sense of religious and spiritual values comes from your feelings about what surrounds you – atmospheres and general moods will effect you greatly – so take special care to understand which values belong to you or somebody else.  Your greatest gift is your ability to feel at one with your fellows.  You have the ability to show them their own paths. (Applies birth dates – April 1950 – August 1950, December 1950 – April 1951, April 1962 – March 1963, March 1974 – March 1975, March 1986 – February 1987, February 1998 – January 1999, January 2010 – May 2010, September 2010 – January 2011.)

    1. Virgo is one of the most interesting zodiac signs – did you know that in Latin, the word ‘virgo’ means unwed and self-possessed? This doesn’t mean that Virgo won’t get married – instead it suggests an inner purity – or integrity – i.e. being true to your authentic self. A good question to consider is – ‘who are you when no one is looking’?
