In Astrology Jupiter is there for What?

In Astrology Jupiter is the great benevolent ruler in the solar system, even when it's afflicted, it's not so bad.

The Romans named Jupiter after their head honcho deity, Jove, “By Jove...".  *Sorry darlings, back to it.*

As for the Greeks, they named Jupiter after theirs too; Zeus, but happily our astrology planet Jupiter doesn't have the qualities in common with dreadful Zeus.

Jupiter takes 12 yrs. to round the zodiac. Although Sagittarius is governed by Jupiter and being that is so they almost always walk with luck, this loving planet shares its luck with every sign of the zodiac through the years, each getting one year of bonus Jupiter luck.

Jupiter’s glyph is the half a circle over a cross, meaning the soul prevails of over matter.

Jupiter's purpose is to elevate our consciousness past the tangible world. Jupiter promotes in us the impulse to achieve, flourish, and amend ourselves.

In Astrology Jupiter signifies the urge to find the higher meaning in a situation, Jupiter is philosophic.

When one feels the longing for expanded education no matter if it's in a conventional school or not, that's what Jupiter is.

This applies to all experiences in life, from gaining weight to deriving cosmic bliss, to transcending personal consciousness.

By and by, Pisces was said to be ruled by Jupiter at one time, so let’s go with that.

Jupiter co-rules Pisces and the 12th House, and so here divulges how you pull in good karma from the grace you show to others.

It also depicts if you are a philanthropic and sympathetic person.

Modern astrology says; Jupiter is no longer co-ruler of Pisces, they place Pisces in the sole ruler ship of Neptune. I think that life bears the witness that the antiquated custom still rings true. Having said this about Pisces, Sagittarius remains the one with the force of Jupiter.

At its best, Jupiter denotes exuberance, a solid spirituality, love of knowledge, the highest wisdom and human reason, and the kind of joy that only comes from the inside.
