Jupiter is the planet of good luck and expansion; it bestows multiple blessings to whatever house it touches. Jupiter rules the 9th house in astrology home to the sun sign Sagittarius, a freedom loving sign that enjoys discussing ideologies and loves to travel to far off places. Jupiter rules horses imagine them beautiful, wild and free. The very essence of Jupiter is growth, optimism and expansion. Sounds great? Usually it is but as we know everything is great only if in moderation. Jupiter can also show where we tend to go overboard and rely heavily on good luck; it shows where we live in excess and even take advantage. Someone with an overactive natal Jupiter can be difficult to deal with, they are similar to someone that smokes tons of weed. Sidenote I don’t do drugs so please don’t email me However I’m for the legalization of everything as long as you aren’t robbing me on the train to get it;) We all know that person that has dreams of grandeur, they are going to college to get that masters degree oh as soon as they get their GED of course, they have decided to partake in triathlon well after they quit smoking and start exercising.
Dealing with someone with an overactive Jupiter in their natal chart can be VERY difficult, and annoying quite frankly; especially for someone like myself that has a cardinal t-square I’m always under internal pressure to get something done. The other day I needed a present wrapped-I suck at these sorts of things-someone offered to do it for me and asked when did I need it, by what time? I said Come on now you know me, if I asked I need it done immediately. A person with abundance a Jupiter doesn’t operate in this manner; they feel as though time is infinite. They are the type that allow mail to pile up on the kitchen table, that spend much time talking of all the things they are going to do without much of doing anything.
This is most apparent when Jupiter is in hard aspect (square and opposition) to the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars otherwise known as the personal planets. I want to stress this doesn’t indicate the individual is a bad person however they rely heavily on the belief that everything will be okay, they often do not take responsibly seriously and leave others to pick up after them. I promise you, it will bother family and friends more then it will bother the Jupiter person.
I wonder at times if they feel as though they are doing a lot, this constant planning and doing in the mind must be very exhausting. When faced with being held accountable they are likely to deny any responsibility and take it as a personal attack, natives with strong Jupiter aspects in their natal chart aren’t accustomed to being held accountable, after all people are usually running behind them with a broom and dust pan eager to pick up the messes they leave behind.
