Jupiter - the good news!

The good news is that on today, Thursday, April 30th, Jupiter moves from his least positive sign (Capricorn) to Aquarius where his influence is greatly strengthened.

Jupiter is considered to be the most auspicious of the planets and is an indicator of fortune, wealth, fame, luck, devotion, faith, spirituality, charity, morality, meditation, mantra, children, magistrates, ministers, lawyers and leaders in government and religion. Jupiter represents sacred scripture, wisdom, benevolence and philosophy. His nature is Kapha, or watery, gemstone Yellow Sapphire or Yellow Topaz and metal Gold. Jupiter's direction is Northeast and day Thursday.

Worship of Brihaspati or Guru (Jupiter) Devata results in a cure from ailments affecting the stomach and helps one ward off sins and gain strength, valour and longevity. He is revered as protector of the worlds. Kind-hearted he is considered to be the dispenser of justice and can be known only by a study of the Vedas.

Since Jupiter is the planet of good luck, spirituality, dharma, and meditation - this is an opportune time to strengthen our connection to these important and valuable life qualities.

I thought Jupiter had already moved in Dec 2008.Is this a vakra movement?

Jupiter has changed signs according to the vedic system which is 23= degrees off from the western system of calculation. So a western astrologer would be thinking that this happened a long time ago....but not for vedic astrologers.

Jupiter has changed signs and will be going backwards (also known as retrograde or vakra) but not for a little while.

Hi Rajeev:

I didn't know the answers myself to your questions, so checked with a vedic astrologer for the above answers. Hope the answers satisfy your doubts.
