(Read the previous post of this series here -: The Mercury )

Symbolic meaning of the Jupiter

The symbolic meaning of Jupiter is "Positivity" which is all about “Good luck”, “Optimism” & “Growth (or, Expansion)”.

Good luck simply means “Happiness”, “Peace of mind” and everything else which is good for us.


Similarly, Optimism includes “Trust” & “Faith”. 

As faith is required in case of religion, so Jupiter also signifies "Religion" or, "spirituality" and from "Trust" comes "Honesty" which is also signified by Jupiter.

Optimism also includes the secular form of religion like "Philosophy", “Ethics", “Morality”, "Laws" etc.

So, Jupiter is all about discrimination between Dos & Don’ts.

Growth/Expansion includes “Physical growth”, “Mental growth” and “Financial growth” (Abundance of resources/wealth coming from a positive/good way only) as well. All these factors can be seen from Jupiter.

Moreover, “Growth” also implies to "Children" because children expand the lineage.

Not only “Children” but, Jupiter also represents "Teacher”, "Preachers”, "Parents”, "Saints”, “Monks”, “Sages" etc. because for a proper growth, the child needs all these supports.
