When I was young, I was very fascinated by Planet Jupiter, for a simple reason, Jupiter is the Lord of my Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius.
When I’ve discovered it, I had no idea about what that meant. I didn’t know anything about Astrology, just some rough informations found casually around the web. It was the age when, like many other people, I thought that the Zodiac Sign was everything in Astrology.
But that event, that simple information, was able to give the impulse to start my journey into Astrology. A question had arose in my mind: – Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter… Jupiter? A planet of the solar system? What does it have to do with me…? –
And so it’s started my long and wonderful research for the Astrological Knowledge.
Piece after piece, I understood that the Zodiac Sign, the position of the Sun at the moment of our birth, it’s just the beginning, and that every Planet of the Solar System is important; Each one of them represents a part of our psyche and expresses specific forces and specific psychological traits.
Of course, Jupiter has been one of my first subject of studies, and it was incredible discovering that my Jupiter precisely pushed me to learn, because it is the thirst for knowledge.
Yes, if you are a Sagittarius or a Pisces, Jupiter can have much importance in your Natal Chart, because it rules those Zodiac Signs.
But everybody needs to know their own Jupiter , because it’s important understanding its role in your psyche and how it acts upon your personality.
In Astrology, symbols and symbolism are the keys to understand concepts, and that is especially true for Planets, which have thousands of years of symbolism that speak about them.
So, now I will give you a distillate of years of studies about Jupiter, to make you able to interpret the psychological traits that it embodies. I will show you all of its meanings and symbols first, and how it expresses itself when is positioned in each one of the 12 Zodiac Sign later, so you can understand your own one better and how it takes its place into the wonderful mosaic of your personality.
Jupiter is the 5th planet of the solar system, and the 1st one of the Social Planets or External Planets, together with Saturn, which is like its opposite pole.
In fact, Saturn is the Contraction, while Jupiter is the Expansion.
