Jupiter governs your ethics, your philosophy about life, where you're lucky, where you're abundant, where you're cautious, and where you want to learn and how you can benefit from that knowledge. Jupiter is a lucky charm that expands whatever it touches, thus showing what it is that you do on a large scale. It shows where you receive financial benefit and how generous you are with others.

Jupiter is about the search for truth, making it the perfect planet to govern law, religion, philosophy, and education.

If Jupiter was stationary when you were born, you have strong points of view and principles.
