Jupiter is the largest of all the planets, yet it consists entirely of gas. Jupiter is the King of the Gods - a bit larger than life. In the Greek Pantheon Jupiter was the head of the Olympian family over which he ruled with the help of his formidable thunderbolt. Although awesome, he is generally considered benevolent and fair. He was a very amorous God and never stingy with his affections, much to the vexation of his jealous wife.
Astrologically, Jupiter represents the principle of hope, faith and vision. It is the personal quest for meaning, the inspiration to better ourselves, to aim for our dreams and visions, to take a gamble and reach for the stars. Jupiter signifies spirituality, soul-growth and development - all that which expands our inner and outer horizons. However, Jupiter can also have a voracious appetite for fun and food and may be responsible not just for expanding mental horizons, but the waistline too.
JUPITER Wisdom, prosperity, spirituality, faith, hope, personal growth, protection, healing, guidance.
The planets are the wandering stars that travel around the Zodiac and in astrological terminology include Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Modern astrology has added Uranus, Neptune and Pluto to the list. The ancients regarded them as a pantheon of deities whose dynamic interactions had their repercussions in our world. People worshipped and honoured the Gods with rituals and ceremonies or prayed for their divine support in their various endeavours: to win a battle or a maiden's heart, or grant a plentiful harvest and send good weather. Modern astrologers tend to 'psychologize' these deities and regard the planets as parts of the personality.
