Importance Of Jupiter Transit

Planet Jupiter is jeevakarka and is the significator of auspicious events, wealth, positivity, spiritual growth, religion, the birth of children, festivals, gold, etc. Each time Jupiter transit through a sign it directly affects these significations. It is well known that Gold prices fluctuate when Jupiter is about to make a new transit.

In Nadi astrology also Jupiter transit is given huge importance. Without looking at Jupiter's transit it is impossible to make any predictions in Vedic astrology. 

Culturally Jupiter is very important in India, the famous Kumbha Mela depends on the position of Jupiter only. In mythology, Jupiter transit is given a lot of importance. Jupiter transit was tracked by astrologers in King's court and based on that financial decisions were made in those days.

Role Of Jupiter Transit In Major Events 

Planet Jupiter is the significator of auspicious events like marriage, the birth of children, etc. For a woman planet Jupiter becomes more important because it is the significator of Husband.

During its transit planet, Jupiter influences marriage and childbirth directly. In any Horoscope, marriage will happen only when Jupiter in its transit makes a planetary association with either the 7th house or its lord. This can be seen from the Moon chart also.

Without the association of Jupiter with the 7th house, the 7th house lord, the event of marriage can not take place. 

For example, you can open the transit chart of the day when you got married. 

You will notice that planet Jupiter is either influencing your 7th house or its lord.

Note: Account for the retrograde state also, in retrograde transit, planet Jupiter will influence the previous house also.

In the same way, the role of Jupiter transit in childbirth is supreme because Jupiter is the sole karaka of children.

For childbirth to happen, it is a must that Jupiter influence your 5th house or its lord. You need to check this condition from your rising ascendant sign and moon sign. Generally, transit from the rising ascendant sign is more effective. But this rule works equally from the Moon sign.

Let's see the example of Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi to validate this rule.

Indira Gandhi was born on 19th November 1917.

On that day Jupiter was in the sign of Taurus. Now check the Horoscope of Jawaharlal Nehru.

He is Cancer rising ascendant and on the day when his daughter Indira Gandhi was born Jupiter was aspecting his 5th house from the sign of Taurus.

So you just saw how the transit of Jupiter controls the birth of children in a Horoscope. In the same way transit Jupiter controls our career and health also.

In fact, any important event in our life can't happen unless Jupiter transit is involved in it.

Now it may seems that, it is easy to understand the transit of Jupiter, but like all things in astrology there are multiple factors involved which affects the final outcome of Jupiter transit.

Factors Which Affects Jupiter Transit Results

There is a standard way to read the transit effects of planets. But for each planet, the different factors come into play.

For planet Jupiter following factors affects its results during its transit.

1. Functional Nature Of Jupiter:  Based on which house planet Jupiter is ruling, the nature of Jupiter becomes malefic or benefic.

This is the most important factor which affects the Jupiter transit.

The intent of planet Jupiter's transit will be decided due to its lordship in a Horoscope.

For example, Jupiter is benefic for the Pisces zodiac sign, and in its transit, planet Jupiter will give good effects on the house it is transiting through. 

2. Jupiter Effects On Zodiac Sign: Like all planets, Jupiter also gives different results in different signs.

For example, in the sign of Cancer planet, Jupiter becomes exalted whereas in the sign of Capricorn Jupiter is debilitated. This factor decides the strength of transit Jupiter. 

Also, transit Jupiter in each different zodiac sign carries the signification of the sign. 

For example, Jupiter transit in Gemini affects concentration, cleverness, sharpness of mind, etc. 

In the same way, each zodiac sign brings its own dynamics to the transit of Jupiter and it is important to know how Jupiter acts in different zodiac signs. 

3. Jupiter Effects Through Houses: Planet Jupiter's natural effects through houses will contribute to its transit effects also.

You will have to see in which house the transit of Jupiter is happening.

For example planet, Jupiter acts very well in the 1st house and the same concept is applied on transit also. 

Another example, is when Jupiter transit in the 3rd house which is considered negative and affects the courage of the native and abilities to take action.

In the same way, each house of transit has its own value and weightage.

The above three steps basically decide most of the outcome of the Jupiter transit in astrology. 

3. Ashtakvarga Score: It is important to bring Ashtakvarga here.

Here, you need to see how many bindus planet Jupiter is getting in the Zodiac sign it is transiting from. 

If more than 4 bindus, then the transit of Jupiter, will give good effects. Otherwise, the effects of Jupiter transit will be bad. 

Also, you need to check how many bindus are in the house where Jupiter is transiting through.

If the total Samduya Ashtakvarga bindus are 28 or more then surely Jupiter transit will be powerful and will give good results. 

When both of the mentioned conditions are fulfilled then the results from the transit will be excellent.

3. Transit Of Other Planets: Transit means the ever-going motion of planets and since Jupiter transit a sign for one year. 

There will be times when other planets will interact with Jupiter and will affect the results of Jupiter's transit.

Especially, the planet Moon will make a planetary relationship with transit Jupiter in the following manner.

  • Union for 2 days.
  • Mutual aspect for 2 days. Trine relationship for 4 days. 
  • Kendra relationship with Jupiter for 4 days.

In the same way other planets i.e Sun, Mercury, Mars & Venus will form a planetary relationship with transit Jupiter.

Each year, out of all planets, the relationship of transit Jupiter with transit Saturn, Rahu & Ketu is most important.
