The Gifts of the Jupiter: Jupiter gives blessings, good fortune, faith, eleventh-hour saves, opportunities, charity, and recognition to those under its care. When one is open enough to accept everyone without discrimination, to see God in everything, to trust and embrace life as a spiritual path and a gift, and to appreciate the incredible diversity of the Earth Plane; these are some of Jupiter's gifts.

The lessons Jupiter has to learn: Jupiter can get lost in blind faith, and in a helper or missionary role. Here we have to practice humility, to see that everyone is not the same or as fortunate as we are. To fight the complacency that good times bring, and to extend ourselves beyond our comfort zones. To open our minds to opposing views, and to face that our truth may not be everyones.

The Ninth House

Eastern Hemisphere: Outer-directed Ruler: the Jupiter
Scope: Last 3rd: public and group space Mode: Cadent: digesting, connecting
Upper Hemisphere: objective, collective Axis: my view vs. the world's view

The Ninth House is where we first meet "them" (the collective) & become aware of our differences. Philosophy, law, religion, customs, travel, Spirit, and higher education.
