Planets, zodiac signs and astrological houses are three basic factors that affect a native’s destiny, if you look into your birth chart, commonly known as horoscope. That said, horoscopes are something more than your zodiac sign.
Well, what people call ‘their sign’ is only one element of the natal chart; it is the sun sign.
Each natal chart features others zodiac signs, planets with their aspects and other elements.
Houses are twelve fields that host different planets. Each house represents an area of life. Houses with many planets are likely to bring an area of life into focus, in time. Empty houses will be a bit calmer, perhaps.
However, each element of the pattern makes for a unique life experience. Let us see into Jupiter in the Ninth House effects.

Common folk adored the god, as they believed he would protect their lands and bring the good, fruitful harvest. Jupiter was also associated with weather and rain. The cult of Jupiter was the most influential ancient cult in Italy.
It was very much alive throughout both republican and imperial days of the state. Until Christianity completely changed the ancient world, the worship of Jupiter was widely practiced.

This shrine was dedicated to Iuppiter Feretrius. It was the place where people worshiped a Jupiter’s stone, so to say, Iuppiter Lapis.
The shrine was later restored and renewed by the Emperor Augustus. The Greek counterpart of Jupiter was the mighty, supreme Olympian god, Zeus. Zeus was widely admired and worshiped in the Ancient Greece.
One of the seven wonders that represent the incredibly skill and talent of the ancient was the temple of Zeus in Olympia.
Both gods shared many functions and attributes and they were praised by the ancient people. Jupiter or Jove was said to won the throne of gods after overthrowing his father, Saturn.
The myth says that Saturn, Cronus in Greek, the cruel titan, was eating his children, because he thought that way he could annihilate the threatening prophecy that fell upon him.
He himself brought down and castrated his own father, Uranus, so he was afraid the same destiny lingers above his head. However, his son Jupiter was hidden by Saturn’s wife and the mother of his children.
Finally, Jupiter overthrew Saturn and got to rule over the sky and the world. He shared the rule with his two brothers.
Neptune, Greek Poseidon, got all the waters of the world, while, Pluto, Greek Hades, got to rule the realm of the dead. Many myths tell about Jupiter’s activities among gods and humans.
Overall, he was considered a great, just, wise god who brings fortune, justice and who grants power and protection. Jupiter was usually depicted as a fatherly figure, strong, protective, capable and mighty.
