Jupiter is the planet of expansion, specifically the expansion of the higher mind. Mercury rules the communications of ideas but its Jupiter that rules the learning that is required. How do we learn? We need to expand the limits of our minds so that new ideas can come in. The real purpose of Jupiter is to allow you to reach the highest spiritual potential in this life.
Jupiter in your natal chart is the equivalent of a lucky charm that pushes you towards something better. But this “lucky charm” has its own rules and limits mainly that it should be used to expand your soul and mind that is true even if Jupiter give you money. Jupiter can make you rich and famous but only so you can become better through it. Let’s say you suddenly become rich during a Jupiter transit- it still has a higher purpose you must find out.
Today I am going to talk about the restricted Jupiter, the Jupiter that falls into a Sign, House or Aspect that doesn’t allow expansion. For example, Jupiter in the 6th or in Virgo is restricted because this places work against the nature of Jupiter. Virgo likes to look at details, making things smaller and as I said Jupiter likes things bigger.
So what does it mean to have your Jupiter in Virgo? It means you will find your spiritual development in the Virgo realm, in itself there nothing wrong with that. People with this placement do well and feel good serving others. The type of service would be seen by the house Jupiter is in. In either case, Jupiter likes to teach you things and here it allows you to be a student of the spiritual in a very material way. You may join groups that study together, you may read allot or work in service of others who need help.
The problem is going to be that your thinking is very details and deep but it doesn’t seem to give you the bigger picture. You see all the little pieces of the puzzle and you understand each of them very well but you don’t always know how to put them together.
What to do? Embrace the house placement and you will be able to make the puzzle whole. Jupiter in the 3rd house for example will make an amazing teacher, writer and speaker about philosophy, religion and media. You have Jupiter in the 5th house? You will do well to give light and humor to others in a creative way; this is the creative teacher or the laughing Dalai Lama.
The real truth here is that Jupiter in Virgo is capable of bringing so much kindness and happiness to others in the world. You bring your lucky charm to serve others- and you love it for in allows you to grow and learn. So pleas for the sake of humanity, embrace the limitations of life and you will see how giving can be your reward. You will find yourself feeling whole with Jupiter and with knowing your true purpose in life.
