Jupiter in the Eleventh House of friends, social groups and "other peoples' children" can indicate an extended family that is not joined by blood. This is a good placement for finding the kind of friends who will back you up and not let you down when you need them. The extended family can include people of other cultures.
Jupiter in the Ninth House of travel, religion and higher learning is fortunate, because Jupiter is the natural ruler of this House. This shows a tendency to travel to seek education and understanding of other cultures. There is likely to be a large collection of books as well
Jupiter rules Sagittarius, so is at his most expansive and exuberant in this sign. There is great optimism and humor, and the ability to roll with the punches. There is an interest in travel, and a fascination with philosophy and religion that will lead to great expansion in learning. There is a tendency to attract good fortune, and to be able to meet long term goals.
Jupiter in the Twelfth House of sacrifice, institutions and hidden issues is willing to take on the burdens of others but may become overtaxed. Periods of retreat may be necessary. This indicates a generous giving of the personality to those in need. There is likely to be considerable psychic ability.
There can be a tendency to excessive indulgence in the "good life" in this Venus-ruled sign. Jupiter here gives a taste for the finer things, and expense is no object. A tendency to great stubborness out of proportion to an issue's importance and overeating are also indicated. But this is a good placement for singing and public speaking.
Jupiter in Scorpio can mean an excessive interest in sex, and a large number of sexual conquests, but it can also increase Scorpio's depth of feeling and ability to penetrate to the heart of things. No one is likely to forget, or quickly get over, an encounter with Jupiter in Scorpio. This is a good placement for having the ability to regenerate and survive almost anything.
This makes it hard to stick with a project for long, although there is great enthusiam at the start. Interest flags quickly, so having more than one project to break the monotony is preferred. Jupiter in Gemini never stops talking! But this is a good placement for acquiring knowledge, although it may tend to be superficial.
There can be a tendency to worry out of proportion to the issue with Jupiter in this sign, but as Jupiter is in its exhaltation here, this is a good placement. This can make for very dedicated and protective parents, with a beautiful and nurturing home environment. No expense would be spared in making the home welcoming and furnished with comforts. There may be some over indulgence and a tendency to "comfort eating", but Jupiter in Cancer can make a home anywhere.
Jupiter in Pisces increases the sensitive, artistic nature of this sign. There can be quite marked psychic abilities. The lofty goals of Jupiter are well served in Pisces, where art and spirituality can reach beyond the limits of imagination. But there can be a tendency to lose touch with reality, or to become a "psychic sponge", soaking up too much of the atmosphere other people project so that you become tired and drained.
Libra is another sign where Jupiter encourages excess which may result in weight gain or overspending. But Jupiter does tend to increase the Libra charm here, making this a good placement for a diplomat or counsellor. This is a very sociable placement and there will be lots of friends and relationships. The Venusian love of beauty and fine things is well served with Jupiter in this sign.
Jupiter in the Sixth House of work and health is good for establishing a friendly, cooperative work environment and for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, so long as Jupiter is not receiving challenging aspects from others planets. The work you do will bring rewards
Jupiter in Leo signifies a big heart and a childlike, generous nature. There is a tendency here to "fall in love with love" and pursue a new love when the old grows stale, but the warmth of this placement is an attraction in itself. This is a good placement for actors or anyone with ambitions in public life.
Excessive attention to detail, and the desire for perfection is a characteristic of Jupiter in Virgo. Virgo tries to control Jupiter's excesses, while Jupiter tries to urge Virgo to cut loose. This is a good placement for working in the health or medical industries, as attention to detail and the ability to see the big picture will be valued.
Jupiter in the Fifth House of children, love affairs and gambling can indicate a large family, a tendency to keep "falling in love with love" and luck on the gaming tables (but pay attention to the aspects to Jupiter before you speculate with the rent money!). This can indicate success in the entertainment industry.
Expect the unexpected with Jupiter in Aquarius. This is a wonderful placement for travel and adventure. This works to bring many interesting people into the life. Jupiter's expansive influence works well on the humanitarian traits of Aquarius, but it also increases the stubborn determination to cling to an idea, no matter how outlandish it might be.
The principle of expansion meets the principle of limitation, or, as they say in the classics, the irresistable force meets the immovable object. This can be a difficult placement to live with, since expansion is limited, and the limits are always being stretched. But it is a good placement for success in maturity, particularly after the age of 40. And there will be tendency to worry less and grow younger as you grow older.
