Jupiter Parvati Devi

Today is Thursday, the day associated with Jupiter. In French, Thursday is “Jeudi”, a word that reveals more easily the connection to Jupiter.

Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius the Centaur. Jupiter is a large, glowing planet and as such rules expansion, spiritual ideals, and inspiration. Jupiter is seen as good natured, jovial, lucky, big and juicy.

Jupiter is associated with the Roman deity Jupiter and the Greek God Zeus. The Hindus call Jupiter Guru, meaning “teacher”.

The parts of the body that are governed by Jupiter are the thighs. In medicine, Jupiter is associated with the liver, pituitary gland and fats. The metal associated with Jupiter is tin. White and gold are the radiant colours associated with Jupiter.

Jupiter is associated with the principles of growth, prosperity, and good fortune. Jupiter governs long-distance and foreign travel, higher education, religion, and the law. It is also associated with the urge for freedom and exploration, humanitarian and protecting roles, and with celebrations.

Today, wear white or luminous gold and think big! Allow yourself to open to the fullness of life, feel juicy and expand. Jupiter’s gifts are in the form of abundance and growth. Sense your opulent connection to the cosmos as a whole.
