Humanistic Interpretation
Jupiter symbolizes the principle of increase, expansion, magnification, preservation and compensation. It places Martian impulses in an ever-broader arena of action, and tempers primal Martian drives with cooperation and other capacities necessary for survival and success in the social and business arenas. Jupiter therefore represents the religious, legal, moral and philosophical system of the institutions of a society and how they govern individual action. In another sense, Jupiter is the symbol of organizational and administrative processes. In a horoscope, Jupiter symbolizes your capacity for personal expansion, integration and social participation. It represent personal accomplishments and the pride one takes in his or her achievements. Your philosophical outlook and how you can best expand horizons are also indicated by Jupiter in your horoscope.
