Jupiter is a very big planet. In fact, it is the biggest one in our Solar system. Scientists consider it a giant planet because its mass is bigger than the mass of all other planets. This planet doesn’t have a solid surface and is mostly created of hydrogen.

The Roman god Jupiter gave this planet its name. Jupiter was the king of all Roman gods, and was the god of the sky and thunders. This god was an equivalent of the Greek god Zeus. Jupiter remained the central deity until the proclamation of Christianity as the public religion in the Roman Empire.

In astrological sense, Jupiter rules increase, abundance, accumulation, growth, progress, exaggeration, money, finances, financial institutions and financial affairs, banks and bankers, luxury, luxurious items, luxurious lifestyle, comfort, pleasures, hedonism, foreigners, foreign cultures, distant travels, distant communication, joy, happiness, optimism, temperance, indulgence, judges, courts, judicial system, law, lawyers, ships, literature, good fortune, etc.

Jupiter is the ruler of the sign of Sagittarius. When Jupiter transits the sign of Sagittarius is a period when it has its full power. In the sign of Cancer, the planet Jupiter is in exaltation and that means that it is in an excellent position to exhibit its maximum potential.

When it is in a good placement in our natal chart, Jupiter provides us with good fortune, prosperity, protection, etc. We can then reap all the fruits of this beneficial planet. With strongly placed Jupiter, we are usually successful and reach high on the social scale.

Good Jupiter also provides us with financial wellbeing and ensures our financial stability. When it is positioned well, people usually don’t have any financial worries.

Bad placement of Jupiter in a person’s natal chart could bring financial misfortune and problems with finances, as well as struggles to attain them. These people usually lack fortune and opportunities for financial gains.

The important thing to note when talking about Jupiter is the fact that it transits through one sign in around one year. That means that it influences whole generations of people who share its traits.

Because of that, its influence in signs is not as important as the influence of so-called personal planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. The personal planets go through different signs at a fast pace and they influence our personality traits the most. Jupiter is a social planet and influences whole groups of people.

Jupiter in signs does influence people, but that influence should be combined with its placement in the house of a natal chart as well as its aspects to other planets in the natal chart. That is how we get the whole picture of its influence on a certain individual.
