WHERE IS YOUR JUPITER?

Read the last Daily Message titled, Personal Responsibility
Jupiter is the planet of luck, abundance, extra blessings, expansion, opportunity, increase, optimism, wisdom and improvement. It is the planet of benevolence, generosity, enthusiasm, sponaneity, the higher mind, aspiration and gain through experience.
The Jupiter glyph represents the ascending crescent of the personality which is no longer confined to the material plane, which is why Jupiter moves beyond what you can actually see and finds gain. Jupiter naturally rules the Sun sign Sagittarius and it rules the weekday, Thursday. This makes Thursday the luckiest day of the week. I just Love Thursday's. Anyone who really knows me, knows that I always say, "My weekend begins on Thursday." But then again, I work 7 days a week so everyday is Thursday to me.
I think Jupiter is one of the most important planets in your Natal Chart simply because of all the wonderful things I just named in the first paragraph so why not take advantage of it. My favorite description of Jupiter is the last one I named which is, gain through experience. You see folks, Jupiter is THE MOST freedom-loving sign of the zodiac. I make no bones about it that I absolutely and unequivocally DO NOT like to be told what to do because I will start throwing wrenches in the cogwheels and stop everything if someone starts bossing me around, trying to control me or dictates what I can or cannot do. Okay wait a minute, I wouldn't put myself in that position to begin with so what am I saying? hehehehe! I say when, where, why, what and how. That's just who I am and it's all due to the placement and aspects of Jupiter in my Natal Chart.
It's vital to get to know your Jupiter because the more you know about this wonderful blessed planet, the more it will bless you. It's the luckiest point in your chart. But then again, I really don't believe in luck so I prefer to call it the "extra blessings planet". I'm so fiesty with my Jupiter because it's in Aquarius. Jupiter is THE MOST freedom-loving planet and Aquarius is THE MOST freedom-loving sign. When you put the two together, it is freedom AT ALL COSTS! This is exactly why I have worked for myself since I was 22 years old. Again, I say when, who, where, why, what and how much. I do not like limits or ceilings, in fact those words don't even compute with me. I can't even relate to that kind of thinking. Someone else might see a ceiling or even a glass ceiling but I sure as heck don't. As soon as you buy the self-limiting idea, then there's the self-limiting belief and the slow down. I won't even waste my time thinking like that.
I am a person who absolutely believes in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness but no one is in any way entitled to my life, my liberty and my pursuit of happiness. There's my rub with Barack Obama and his "redistribution of wealth", which is interesting because he also has Jupiter in Aquarius but his is aspected different than mine. Even though we both have a freedom-fist in the air, our approach is different. And believe it or not, mine is more conservative than his. It's now 2:13 AM and I'm working when I want, for as long as I want, as hard as I want. Even though this is the Life I chose, it's a tough pill for me to swallow that I choose to stay up working until the wee hours and my abundance gets redistributed at the hand of someone else. I do have a problem with that. My motto is, "Go find your own dang happiness and leave mine alone!" Now wait . . but then again, I have no problem with really smart redistribution but not hand-outs or entitlement. That's probably why I Love the website www.kiva.org so much. Now that's some smart redistribution but I say when, where, why, who and how much. Wouldn't that be great if we had something like that in every country including the U.S.?
The other thing about Jupiter in Aquarius is that this placement of Jupiter knows no class, racial or religious distinctions. Those of us with Jupiter in Aquarius are cool with you being who you want to be and don't even try to tell me who I can be. If you want to tattoo yourself like a mural and paint your hair blue, that's fine. That has nothing to do with me so why make it about me? If you want to be an atheist, that's fine too but you might want to pray you're right but then again atheists probably don't pray and that's okay too. If you are spiritual and not religious, that's fine too but knocking religion doesn't make you a more spiritual and enlightened person. In fact, I'd say it would make you a less spiritual and enlightened person if you had to knock down anyone's belief system just to make yours higher. And I'll bet you anything that Barack Obama with Jupiter in Aquarius sees himself as a man. Just like in the movie, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" with Sidney Poitier. His character was John and he said to his dad, "But you think of yourself as a colored man. I think of myself as a man." I'm just crazy about Sidney Poitier and the way he played that character. If I could have any wish come true, it would be to meet Sidney Poitier and feel a nice warm hug from him. There's nothing on the planet that I would wish for more than to meet Sidney Poitier. "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" is one of my favorite movies of all time but then again it speaks so loudly as to my own beliefs. I think his character in the movie had Jupiter in Aquarius too. (winky wink) I also think Barack Obama is proud of his ancestry as he should be and because of his Jupiter in Aquarius I'll bet you anything Barack Obama sees himself as a man but then are still others who see him more as a black man.
Jupiter is a benevolent planet and likes to help others, (see keywords in first paragraph) and we all have a form of benevolence (Jupiter) in our spirit that we should tap into and express. Since Aquarius naturally rules the 11th house of the masses and groups of people, this is how I express my benevolence, to the masses. I created something massive (Jupiter size) and brought it the masses (Aquarius style). I couldn't stop writing this site if I tried. This site is after all over 3,000 pages and loads of it is free. But that's also why I blow a gasket if someone demands more from me or complains about something that I am doing for them for free. Now folks that rarely ever happens but when it does happen I go right into my defensive posture, "Your not entitled to more of me! Instead, I give to you when I want to give to you." That's just my Jupiter in Aquarius waving my arms around if demands are made on my life, my liberty and my pursuit of happiness. The great thing about my Jupiter is it is big and fat in Aquarius (the masses) so giving to the masses is pretty dang easy, which makes my work pretty dang easy. I just Love Jupiter! What's yours?
I encourage you to seek out and really work your Jupiter because it will bring you extra blessings and bring you happiness when you understand what it means for you. Just check your Natal Chart and it will tell you. So PLAY UP it's wonderful qualities. Jupiter wants to be benevolent and give to you but it can't if you don't even see it.

and practice being you."
