Planet Jupiter and its Significance in Marriage
Let’s discuss the most important topic related to Jupiter. We’ll also discuss marriage and happiness in married life. Actually both are the same thing. Yes, Jupiter is the most important consideration for a happily married life.
Why is Jupiter considered the most important planet in astrology when it comes to marriage?
The simplest answer to this most frequently asked question is- because Jupiter is the father of marriage. A marriage is a relationship that works largely on responsibilities especially in cultures like India where family life is given utmost importance. Since Jupiter represents the responsibilities of married life, duty, and nature of that person so by considering Jupiter, we can come to know the details of how the married life is going to be. It is also used to make readings such as who will take the responsibilities of their own, spouse, family, child, fate, and sense of fulfillment in marriage. Astrologers can also come to know whether the person will take care of his or her spouse’s emotion or not using readings of Jupiter.
Jupiter is not only a giant planet in our solar system but also in the astrological birth chart as it affects a total of eleven places in the birth chart! So how are these eleven houses calculated and which are they?
- The house in which Jupiter is placed;
- Three houses which are the three aspects of Jupiter;
- Two houses in which its own signs Sagittarius and Pisces are placed; and
- Five houses namely second, fifth, seventh, ninth, eleventh. These are the houses of elements governed by Jupiter.
Marriage is more about enduring it after the wedding. Both the husband and wife are in a position of huge responsibility towards each other and towards both families. They are responsible for taking care of each other and life-partners are known to influence the entire being of the person. A spouse affects the spirituality, understanding, position, and mindset of the person. That is the reason when marriage is seen in a person’s birth-chart, it requires astrologers to look at so many things. Marriage astrology is hence a very deep and comprehensive study of a person’s chart. The positioning of Jupiter affects the native as well as his or her spouse too along with childbirth. This way Jupiter holds so much significance as a planet in marriage astrology and matchmaking.
You can say if Jupiter is favorable or not in somebody’s life by Jupiter’s position in one’s birth-chart. However, it would be very general as it is not possible to precisely interpret exact effects as it takes an in-depth analysis of various charts in the horoscope which only a knowledgeable Astrologer can do. For a detailed reading and understanding of marriage and how Jupiter is affecting, consult any of our Astrologers.
