The giant planet Jupiter is larger than all the other planets combined. In astrology Jupiter is symbolic of expansion, the higher mind, wisdom, enthusiasm, optimism, spontaneity, benevolence, generosity, the desire to gain t through experience, and the urge to improve the state of things. Jupiter represents opportunity, increase, rewards abundance, tolerance, charity, philanthropy, faith, ethics, confidence, idealism, aspiration, justice, loyalty, self-indigence, joviality, extravagance and conceit. Jupiter protects, assists, magnifies, inflates, gives, speculates, inspires, encourages, counsels and philosophizes. It carries the ability to grow in physical, mental and moral directions.
Jupiter is most at home in Sagittarius where the desire for a wide variety of experiences can bring wisdom. Expansive Jupiter is limited by the trivial mental nature of Gemini. Jupiter can be impeded by Virgo because of Virgo's preoccupation for detail. Free-flowing, imaginative Pisces reinforces Jupiter.
The glyph is the ascending crescent of the personality no longer confined by the material plane.
