In astrology, Jupiter is like a beacon in your birth chart, guiding you to become your most outrageously realized Self. It's the planetary essence that generates potential for expanding beyond your sense of who you are. Jupiter guides you to your big dreams, those that seem nearly impossible to achieve. This planet shows up in your life as a pull toward your aspirations, through an inner drive, sense of destiny, serendipity, helpful friends, lucky breaks, and fateful events.
Sometimes Jupiter calls you out to take risks, and the result in doing that is a faith that life is unfolding as it should. The element points out the medium -- whether you're working with ideas (air signs), tangibles and structures (earth signs, emotional and imaginative knowing (water signs) or instinctual awareness (fire signs.)
