Jupiter/ Brihaspati Planet

In astrology, Jupiter (Brihaspati Graha) is the planet of hope, faith, knowledge, happiness, wealth, education, morality and positivism. It is exalted in Cancer and rules Sagittarius. Jupiter represents the attitude of expansion, versus contraction and the ambitions of the higher self. This could include a good will, sense of humour, or mercy.

On the flip side, this planet can also be linked with irresponsibility in the form of overindulgence and blind optimism. Its position in the chart point outs one’s generosity, tolerance and faith, and also modes of activity, wisdom and self-confidence.

Jupiter is also considered as a valuable planet. Its nature signifies development and growth in every field. The person under its control will be lucky, religious, successful, generous and fortunate with high moral values.

Jupiter is always considered as Guru in Indian Astrology as it is the largest planet.  Guru means one which is great and vast. Jupiter is the ruler of the two Zodiac signs Pisces and Sagittarius. It signifies its influences on teachers and priests.

Its Gochar (Transit) is considered positive in 2,5,7,9,11 houses. On the other hand, its Gochar is considered negative in 1,3,4,6,8,10,12 houses. Out of personality aspects it represents Divinity. Moon, Mars and Sun are friends and Mercury, Venus are enemy to the Jupiter. Its Mulatrikona is 00°-13° Sagittarius.
