Does this area of your chart really indicate a lucky break? We hear about Jupiter as the bringer of luck and the Santa Claus of the cosmos. Jupiter’s placement in the chart indicates the way to success and happiness and of course like all things in astrology, the question “how much?”, “in which area of life?”, “though what process?” depends on the sign and house position of Jupiter and aspects made by it. Jupiter is the natural ruler of the zodiac sign Sagittarius and hence its placement, the house where Sagittarius is found, and the condition of the 9th house are all areas where Jupiter’s energy can be seen.
Jupiter was called “Zeus” in Greek mythology and he ruled the heaven and earth, and kept order in the Universe. When angered he is known to throw lightning bolts to control chaos. It’s not so hard to find this sharpness especially in the manner of communication with people who have strong Sagittarius in their charts. Jupiter had hoard of lovers though whom he bore exceptional kids. His wife, Juno was not happy about this and was always busy finding ways to punish his lovers. This indicates Jupiter’s negative qualities of excess, exaggeration and extravagancy.
Jupiter’s highest goal is to find truth by whatever means and this may be a reason why Jupiter is linked to religion and philosophy. Jupiter helps us to find the higher meaning through reflection, higher education, and by taking risks in life. Jupiter also rules law, long distance travel, and foreign cultures. Jupiter’s placement in the chart shows the area of life where the person is pushed to explore, expand, seek success, and find truth. A well placed Jupiter is a blessing and can neutralize or balance other struggles indicated in the natal chart.
The house ruled by Jupiter is also important as it indicates the needs of the person in relation to success, finding truth, etc. For example if someone has Jupiter ruling the 5th house (which means 5th house is Sagittarius) and the Jupiter is in the 10th house in Taurus, then the person has the need to explore and find success through expressing his/her creativity (Jupiter ruling 5th) and since this energy is transferred to teh 10th house (Jupiter located in 10th house), the person may have a career in a creative field. If the Jupiter is well placed, it may be easy for the person to know what steps to take to achieve the goald of being creative in one’s career.
Jupiter in First House: This is inherently a lucky placement for Jupiter because the person has a personality that draws people and success. First house is about how people project their energy and people with Jupiter in the first house are usually confident, jovial, risk takers and easily liked by others. Jupiter’s expansiveness is sometimes seen in their tendency to put on weight and to do things in an excessive manner. This is a blessing and it is important that the person uses it with caution.
Jupiter in Second House: Here Jupiter can bring luck with money and the person is usually optimistic that their material needs will be met. However, with this placement, one can end up squandering money and resources by being a spend thrift. This is usually so because Jupiter in 2nd person may tend to live larger that they can afford and buy things spontaneously. There may also be a tendency to take risks with money through gambling, etc.
Jupiter in the Third House: Third house is about communication, collecting data and learning through being detailed, and relationships with siblings and neighbors. So although the person may be confident in how they communicate and connect with others, there may be some struggle in expressing this energy as Jupiter here may not have the patience and interest in details required to do the learning. It may be seen as over confidence or bragging in the manner of communication or in the way they study in school. They may be lucky in having supportive siblings and neighbors. There is a general feeling of contentment with the immediate environment.
Jupiter in the 4th house: Generally Jupiter in the angular houses tends to be lucky, and I see this position as a great blessing. It indicates well balanced emotions, happy childhood, strong roots, parents and family that are supportive and helpful. If not aware, the person can take this blessing for granted and become over confident and careless in how they treat others. This placement can also be luck for buying houses, property, remodeling and building.
Jupiter in the 5th house: Indicates luck and happiness through one’s children and in creative endeavors. Agatha Christie has Jupiter in the fifth house and made success through her creativity, and was very close to her only child and daughter, Rosalind Hicks who fought to protect the reputation and literary legacy of her mother. She was also an ardent fan of her mother’s books and would read them repeatedly in childhood. The issue here is that since Jupiter expands whatever it touches, the person could have a bloated ego.
Jupiter in the 6th house: This placement provides a positive attitude towards work and keeping up with daily schedules. The person is well organized and is a creature of good habits. Also, the person is lucky with finding jobs and gets along well with co-workers and authority figures.
Jupiter in 7th house: Once again, Jupiter in an angle is a blessed placement. Seventh house is to do with relationships and the person is usually lucky and finds support and happiness through relationships and marriage. This is a good placement for marketing oneself or in working with others in partnership.
Jupiter in 8th house: This placement is good for joint resources as in a marriage, investments, tax, insurance money and inheritances. Jupiter in 8th is also about peaceful death. The person may be lucky in finding intimate relationships and in sexual matters. There is a need to find truth in occult matters like astrology.
Jupiter in 9th house: This is a strong position for Jupiter due to accidental dignity. Jupiter works well in the 9th house as the thinking here is broad, philosophical, expansive (not detailed). This is a great position for higher education, long distance travel and religious matters. With Jupiter in 9th, the person is on a continual truth finding mission!
Jupiter in 10th house: Jupiter in 10th house is angular and hence brings luck with career matters. People with this placement know what they want in terms of job and career and have the good instinct to do the right things to achieve their goals. They are often successful with career matters. They usually get along with authority figures and handle responsibility in a positive and confident manner.
Jupiter in 11th house: This is a lucky position for a leader in a community, to feel a sense of belonging with groups and to form supportive and positive friendships. With this placement, friendships can end up being more important than other close relationships and the person usually has one or more friends who are like family.
Jupiter in 12th house: Twelfth is a spiritual area of the chart and the person needs to be aware to use this energy in a conscious manner. In this position, Jupiter will be forced to forego its active quest for truth which requires some amount of objectivity, in favor of using the intuitive faculty to merge with the higher powers. Hence this is not an easy placement for Jupiter and the person may express this struggle in a subconscious manner.
