Whenever you're at your best at work or play, Jupiter has a hand in it! Jupiter is a huge planet, and its happy-go-lucky influence is just as great! Think of Jupiter as your mentor, personal trainer and sidekick, the planet that ignites luck in your birth chart and reveals your true strengths. For example, if your Jupiter is in secretive Scorpio, you will most likely find success in creating art, or in a healing field, like medicine. If your Jupiter is in Aries, your powers of persuasion and business savvy make you a great entrepreneur.
But there's a dark side to Jupiter, too. Even though it's considered to bring luck and good fortune, it also brings an excessive appetite and ambition. The "shadow" of Jupiter is greed and egoism.
In Astrology, the planets move through the zodiac at their own pace and interact with each sign -- and each other -- to set the mood here on Earth.
