Jupiter governs abstract thinking and exploration of the world. It urges people to acquire knowledge
of both intellectual and spiritual matters.
Jupiter rules religion and philosophy, setting people on the path of the search for truth and answers.
It encourages an optimistic worldview and helps us get a clear understanding of what is right and
wrong, thus making us reappraise our moral and material values. Associated with luck and good fortune,
this planet benevolently ensures that we achieve personal growth and prosperity. It also governs
leisure activities like sports and games. Unfortunately, it makes no difference between leisure and
laziness, so Jupiter is often associated with weight gain.
However, it may also be a strict judge of our actions, when we seem to fall off the line, but with
the sole intention of setting us back.
Jupiter completes its orbit in 12 years. Its masculine energy rules the zodiac signs of Sagittarius
and Pisces, as well as the Ninth House of Philosophy and the Twelfth House of the Unconscious.
