Jupiter in different Houses

Jupiter is one most positive and powerful planet. Jupiter is preceptor of Gods and Lord of Sky. Jupiter is the giant planet in astrology. Jupiter is the ‘Guru’ of Gods. Old Greeks considered Jupiter as the father of Gods-Zeus. Jupiter is termed as ‘Fortuner’. If well placed in horoscope, he bestows a considerable amount of what appears to be good luck. It is said, even if other planets are ill posited, if Jupiter is strong and well placed in a chart, he will enjoy the last minute assistance to tide over the difficult time. It is important to know how Jupiter in different houses perform.

Before judging the Jupiter in different houses, we should consider the following points:

1) Jupiter expands the results of the house where it sits.
2) Jupiter enhances the results where it aspects i.e. 5th, 7th and 9th from its placement.
3) Jupiter is karaka of 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th houses and karaka destroys the result if placed in its karaka house .

There are certain other complications in regards to the placement of Jupiter. According to certain renowned astrologers:

‘‘स्थान हानि करो जीवा’’ के सिद्धांत के आधार पर गुरु शुभ व सबल होने पर भी, जिस स्थान में बैठता है उस स्थान की हानि करता है। परंतु जिन स्थानों पर दृष्टि डालता है उन स्थानों को बलवान बनाता है। सप्तम स्थान प्रमुख रूप से वैवाहिक जीवन का भाव माना गया है। सामान्यतः सप्तम भावस्थ गुरु को अशुभ फलप्रद कहा जाता है। पुरूष राशियों में होने पर जातक का अपने जीवन साथी से मतभेद की स्थिति बनती है। वहीं स्त्री राशियों में होने पर जीवन साथी से अलगाव की स्थति ला देता है।
