Jupiter is the planet flanked by Mars and Saturn. It is a massive planet made primarily of gasses. Infact it is the largest planet in the solar system.
As per vedic astrology Jupiter or Guru is the planet directly impacting one’s education and depth of knowledge. It is an auspicious planet shielding Mars, Earth, Venus, Mercury from Saturn.
It’s auspicious or benefic powers are difficult to ignore.
A well placed Jupiter means excellent education and genuine knowledge; including higher education.
Experts in the field of spirituality, religion, great teachers, researchers, scientists, eminent lawyers and jurists all have their Jupiter excellently placed.
He is the also planet connected with your children or the generation next. People with excellently placed Jupiter often have children who are the source of great joy for them.
Jupiter can also make a person very lucky in his /her life.
Especially people with Jupiter in its lord house of Pisces makes ones do good for the world with his /her knowledge, good intentions and via their children.
Such people are also driven by their heart or gut feel and have very strong sensory instincts.
Good astrologers have their Jupiter activated positively in their lagna chart. So be rest assured that if you are dealing with a person who has his/her Jupiter in Pisces/well placed/positively activated – that person has seen through your talk and gauged you exactly for what you are – good or bad.
Needless to say that the complete chart matters and especially the placement of Sun and Moon and to a great extent Mercury and Mars in ones chart.
Let me illustrate this better with the help of a case study of the chart of eminent jurist Late Shri Ram Jethmalani.
