Jupiter as Chart Ruler: How you keep the faith

Your chart ruler offers important clues as to how you see the world and how others see you in return. For some astrologers, its placement and condition are considered nearly as important as your Sun, Moon, and Ascendant. With Jupiter as your chart ruler, how does this influence your perspective on the world and the way in which others view you?

If your rising sign is Sagittarius, Jupiter is your chart ruler. With a Pisces rising sign, Jupiter is considered your traditional co-ruler, along with your modern ruler, Neptune. Jupiter represents your faith, morals, and your desire to go experience the world. Where it sits in your natal chart shows areas where you may find abundance. As chart ruler, Jupiter will help shape how you express yourself to others.

The condition and position of your Jupiter can offer clues as to what kinds of activities or experiences may help you to feel hope and find meaning in your life. Jupiter’s placement may also indicate areas of life where things just seem to fall into place for you. You may feel “lucky” in these areas, or things may just seem to always work out in your favor. Jupiter, the jolly old king, points to one place where finding contentment and optimism may come easily for you.

Planets sitting in signs work through those motivations, needs, and tools that their sign has to offer to help you best achieve its goal. Below are summaries of how your chart ruler, Jupiter, could be influenced by each sign in the Zodiac.

Remember that these summaries are oversimplified because without taking into consideration the rest of the chart, you are just looking at one piece of your astrological puzzle. Houses, aspects, transits, these will all play roles in how these energies play out. However, these descriptions can give you a little taste of how each sign could influence your Jupiterian chart ruler in a different way.

The people that know you may understand that you come at information with a skeptical eye and a hefty dose of common sense. Just because you are curious to learn about it doesn’t mean you will believe it! They also may find you to be quite interesting to talk to and persuasive when it comes to conveying information and have a great knack for speaking, whether it is used in lectures or just in small talk with someone you are waiting in line with.

You may see the world for what it truly is, not in some idealistic way, but as a place that has great joys and also great injustices and sorrows. In much of the same way, you may also be able to see people for who they really are, not as the “character” they are trying to play, but the whole person with all of their strengths, weaknesses, and secrets. However, these realities may not get you down. Instead, you may see these unpleasant parts of life as opportunities to look them in the face, transform them, and heal. You may have great faith that there is still light out there even when the world seems dark, and you may have the ability to influence others to feel the same. Being able to face and handle emotionally deep subject matter may come easier for you, but be careful that you don’t let your spirit get pulled down too far and take refuge in fun times with friends when needed.

There may be part of you that feels as though no harm could ever really come to you as long as you are loving life and trying to be a good person.

You may see the world as a place that can be improved for the benefit of every person, and you may find meaning in your life working toward that end.

Jupiter as Chart Ruler in Pisces

With your chart ruling Jupiter in Pisces, people may see you as someone who is endlessly compassionate and who will always step up to help those in need. You may see the world as simply the illusion that we all live in, and that it is how we treat and care for others that brings us wealth. Pisces is a sign that offers a direct line to the collective consciousness or the higher power. Your chart ruling Jupiter in Pisces may influence you to have an incredible faith that can come out through sensing the emotional needs of others and selflessly offering your help. This may, in turn, inspire others to have faith, themselves. Meditative practices may be something that is very beneficial for you as you have a great potential for spiritual growth. Your ability to give to others may seem endless, but just be sure that you aren’t giving of yourself to the point where you are being drained emotionally.

Remember that the position of your chart ruler is just one piece of the puzzle of your birth chart. Your rising sign and position of your Ascendant will combine with the traits of your chart ruler and its sign to create a more complex picture of how you see the world and how others view you. Plus, the aspects, transits, houses, and other planets will play a role, as well. Humans are complex creatures, and this is definitely reflected in our natal charts!
