Deities Associated with the planet Jupiter

Jupiter is associated most often with male deities, particularly those identified as King of the Gods who rule over storms, the sky, the wind and fatherhood.

The Planet Jupiter in Astrology

Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius, and Pisces according to some. In Roman mythology Jupiter was the ruler of the gods (having overthrown Saturn) and their guardian and protector, and his symbol was the thunderbolt. In the same way, the planet Jupiter is the king of the other planets, a giant in size with spectacular, brightly coloured clouds and intense storms. Astronomers believe that it plays an important protecting role in using its massive gravity to capture or expel from the solar system many comets and asteroids that would otherwise threaten Earth and the inner planets. Jupiter takes 11.9 years to orbit the sun, spending almost an earth year (361 days) in each sign of the zodiac.
Astrologically Jupiter is associated with the principles of growth, expansion, prosperity and good fortune; and a person's inner sense of justice and morality and their ideals and higher goals. Jupiter governs long distance and foreign travel, higher education, religion and the law. It is also associated with the urge for freedom and exploration, humanitarian and protecting roles, and with gambling and merrymaking or 'joviality'. The first-century poet Manilius described Jupiter as temperate and benign, and the greater benefic. It was regarded as warm and moist in nature, and therefore favorable to life.
In modern times Jupiter is said to be the ruler of the 9th and 12th houses, but traditionally Jupiter was assigned to the 2nd and 9th houses (the house of values and the house of beliefs, respectively) and had 'joy' in the 11th house of friends and aspirations.
Jupiter is associated with Thursday, and in Romance languages the name for Thursday often comes from Jupiter (for example, jueves in Spanish or jeudi in French). Dante Alighieri associated Jupiter with the liberal art of geometry.
In Chinese astrology, Jupiter is ruled by the element wood, which is warm, generous and co-operative. In Indian astrology, Jupiter is known as Guru or Brihaspati and is known as the 'great teacher'.

Jupiter in Medicine

In medicine Jupiter is associated with the liver, pituitary gland and the disposition of fats; it governed the blood / sanguine humour.

Jupiter: Planet of Luck

Jupiter is the thinking-person's planet. As the guardian of the abstract mind, this planet rules higher learning, and bestows upon us a yen for exploring ideas, both intellectually and spiritually. Intellectually speaking, Jupiter assists us in formulating our ideology. In the more spiritual realm, Jupiter lords over religions and philosophy. A search for the answers is what Jupiter proposes, and if it means spanning the globe to find them, well, that's probably why Jupiter also rules long-distance travel. In keeping with this theme, Jupiter compels us to assess our ethical and moral values; it also addresses our sense of optimism.

Luck and good fortune are associated with Jupiter for good reason. This is a kind and benevolent planet, one that wants us to grow and flourish in a positive way. Jupiter may be judge and jury, but it's mostly an honorable helpmate, seeing to it that we're on the right path. While our success, accomplishments and prosperity are all within Jupiter's realm, this largesse can, at times, deteriorate into laziness and sloth (Jupiter, at its worst, is associated with weight gain!). More often than not, however, Jupiter will guide us down the primrose path.

Leisure time is also one of Jupiter's pastimes. Sports of all kinds, games of chance and a stroll in the park with the family pet (Jupiter loves animals) –- these are all ruled by this planet. Finally, Jupiter often presages great wealth, material and otherwise. This is a good friend in the heavens!

It takes Jupiter about 12 years to circle the zodiac (the planet visits an average of one sign a year). It is masculine energy and rules both Sagittarius and Pisces, and the Ninth and Twelfth Houses.

Jupiter is one of the social planets. It has affinity with our life in community and the common ground we share. This includes land surrounding our public institutions such as libraries, city halls and universities. In countries with a ruling monarchy, Jupiter's influence may be seen in the formal gardens near the homes of royalty. In lands of democracy, parks and recreation officials seem cosmically inspired to plant Jupiter's oak and chestnut trees in public parks and around government buildings.
Colorful and Hardy
The plants associated with Jupiter always make a grand public display. They are big and colorful and they demand to be noticed. Like royalty, these plants are often clothed in purple but also blue, yellow and sea green. Who can ignore a group of flowering canna bulbs or a red bud tree in full bloom? Close to our homes, Jupiter's plants prefer living in front yards so neighbors and those passing by can enjoy them. They make a visual statement that other people understand as shared beauty and pleasure, our gift to the neighborhood.
Jupiter is the eternal optimist, so its plants never become discouraged, even when growing conditions are less than ideal. They are extremely hardy, able to survive a crowded urban environment and even inclement weather. Gardeners who've witnessed a bed of tulips persist through a late spring snow understand how Jupiter's hope and enthusiasm can overcome many obstacles.
Flowers of Faith
Our faith communities come under the domain of Jupiter, so those heavenly floral arrangements that accompany worship services are also connected with this planet. The flowers that adorn our altars—the gladiolas, dahlias and passionflowers—have an affinity with this planet. No rite of passage, like a wedding or funeral, would be complete without an exhibit of Jupiter's flowers.
Nature’s Bounty
Jupiter is also the most bountiful of planets. Annuals that continue to produce flowers all summer such as petunias belong to Jupiter, as do many species of evergreens. Out of this bounty comes great generosity and kindness toward others. This planet assures we'll always have enough daisies and delphiniums to share with friends and family.
Most vegetables are considered too common to fall under the domain of Jupiter. The bounteous zucchini has traditionally been assigned to the Moon. However, the size of its leaves and liberal amount of produce make this author suspect hybrid zucchini has been cross pollinated with a rare Jupiter species. Zucchini is the only gift so plentiful that even polite people feel free to reject it.
Jupiter’s Herbs
Herbalists are familiar with the beneficial effects of Jupiter's herbs. In the body, this planet governs the liver and lungs. Its herbs are considered beneficial to these organs and to all diseases that stem from corruption of the blood. Liverwort, lungwort and selfheal are three Jupiter herbs used to promote healing of these kinds of infirmity. Plants of borage, sage and chervil bring Jupiter's beneficial influence into our herb beds and our salads.
Jupiter is known as "The Great Benefic," the planet of extreme good fortune. Where Saturn sets limits and boundaries, Jupiter expands them. It invites us to go beyond our limits, to stretch and expand our horizons by doing something entirely different. Jupiter insists that we don't become rigid or stale. Gardeners who experiment by planting even a few new varieties of plants each year are paying homage to Jupiter. Those who share their harvest with others are living in accordance with the highest principles of this benefic planet.
