Jupiter is characterized by the constant need for growth and development, which is the key to expansion.

In terms of material growth, it means richness, abundance, and the ability to achieve a high-quality lifestyle. Abundance then creates further possibilities, opening ways for quality differences.

In terms of mental and spiritual growth, becoming more means a wide range of progress in knowledge, common cultivation, and development. Jovian mentality allows an overview of the whole of life and the world. We call the synthesis that emerges from this life philosophy wisdom.

Essentially, Jupiter is the instilled wisdom of past experiences.

It is a benevolent principle that represents optimism and encourages generosity, liberty, and forgiveness.

Ethics, morality, faith, laws, and the ability to recognize and apply universal truths are all linked to Jupiter.

In a tense, controversial position, the need for growth is exaggerated and is not followed by meaningful change. On the physical plane, this means selfish expansion, owning, hoarding, and obesity.

On the mental and spiritual plane, this can represent the scientific and/or religious arrogance that contests every other view, declaring to know more and better than everyone else.

Throughout time, Jupiter has been associated with luck and things turning out for the better. In truth, we are talking about the effect and prevalence of the creative force of positive expectation.

If you are generous and benevolent, then it will invite similar reactions toward you from others too. If you believe in yourself, your partner, and others, this trust will be reciprocated.

In terms of the body, Jupiter is represented by the liver, detoxification, the hip area, the body’s fat reserves, and possible overgrowths.

When a planet creates an aspect with Jupiter in your birth chart, it can provoke your Jupiter in a positive or negative way. In other words, it activates and excites these principles, inspiring them to reveal themselves.

This affects the general role Jupiter plays in your Horoscope—the area of life it is in that it then rules.

During transits with positive content, you can make progress in matters that mean something to you and benefit you.

You may experience general goodwill, acceptance, understanding, and a supportive attitude.

Understanding, help, and generosity may also come more naturally to you.

Tense or strained aspects are, in truth, tests of how well you can make good-natured, objective decisions in a difficult and controversial situation.

A lot depends on the position of Jupiter in your Horoscope. What does it represent? What does it urge you to do? What is your Jupiter self like?

You can experience inspired generosity and wisdom on one hand, but exaggeration, insatiability, and an all-consuming hubris on the other.

No matter how Jupiter stands, the situation is never hopeless since this principle represents progress and evolution. You can surpass your past self through it.
