You may know your sun and moon signs, and you may even know where your Venus and Mars show up on your birth chart. But what does your Jupiter sign mean? Its the largest planet in the solar system and toes the line between the inner, more specific-to-you “personal” planets and those outer generational planets (that is, planetary placements you likely share with your entire generation). And, most important for your personal purposes, it’s associated with abundance, opportunities, and luck in astrology.
“We call [Jupiter] the Greater Benefic because it’s associated with supporting things that promote creativity, growth, and well-being,” says astrologer Rachel Lang. “It’s the aspect of our charts that opens us to understanding how the more we have, the more we have to share. So, its influence shows us where we’re generous. Its influence is expansive, adventurous, and seeking. It’s the planet associated with abundance, but it can also relate to indulgence.”
That means that “too much of a good thing” can apply to your Jupiter sign. But overall, it’s a fun-loving, fortune-bearing placement that shows where your personal richness is.

Jupiter in Aries
“This placement of Jupiter gives generosity and enthusiasm,” says Lang. “This is an individual who isn’t afraid to take risks or launch new ideas. You’re lucky when it comes to business, leadership, and pioneering new ideas.”
Jupiter in Taurus
If you have your Jupiter in Taurus, I imagine you’re reading this surrounded by a wealth of creature comforts. Good food, beautiful surroundings—it all gravitates to you naturally.
“You are lucky when it comes to material things, and you can accumulate wealth—depending on other factors in your life,” says Lang. “It’s important to be generous with your money.”
Jupiter in Gemini
This Jupiter placement indicates a quick mind and ability to multi-task—skills that probably help you bring in your bounty.
“Your luck comes through sharing your knowledge with others, connection with others in conversation, and your intellectual excellence,” Lang says. “You’re a natural teacher, and when you share your ideas, you create opportunities for yourself. It’s important to focus, though you may overlook details or be scattered from time to time.”
Jupiter in Cancer
According to Lang, Jupiter is exalted in this sign, which is a strong Jupiter placement. Think of the combo as a sort of cosmic multiplier.
“It is through giving that you receive—every good deed you do comes back to you tenfold,” says Lang. “You are faithful, imaginative, and intuitive. Careers like food, interior design, or real estate could be abundant for you. This is also the placement of a true entrepreneur with ‘million-dollar ideas.’”
Jupiter in Leo
Jupiter in Leo showcases someone who’s creative, enthusiastic, and generous. Your ambitious nature and dramatic flair can achieve luck through leadership and the arts.
“Luck and abundance come to you through self-expression and creative expression,” says Lang. “It’s important to keep this in balance by being open to collaborating with others or being open-minded to others’ ideas.”
Jupiter in Virgo
“This Jupiter placement shows an individual who can ground their dreams and goals in practical step-by-step processes,” says Lang. “Your luck comes through self-discipline and being willing to put in the effort to manifest opportunities for yourself.”
Those with Jupiter in Virgo are excellent at details, and can coach others to manifest their dreams in the same intentional way you manifest yours. And there’s even good fortune in that: Your generosity and good energy comes back to you maximized.
Jupiter in Libra
A Libra Jupiter means that people and relationships are your specialty. Your compassionate nature makes you ultra-lovable, and others adore you effortlessly.
“This placement indicates a gift for mediation, law, and any client-focused work,” Lang says. “Your abundance and wealth might come through partnerships with others. It’s important to keep your indulgences in check.”
Jupiter in Scorpio
Scorpio in Jupiter has the drive to get what they want, and get in deep. You thrive in achieving your goals, especially when those goals lead to pots of gold.
“This placement of Jupiter indicates a strong will, intense passion, and a desire to have deep experiences,” Lang says. “You can be money-minded, especially when it comes to investments and generating long-term wealth. You want to be able to pass on wealth and abundance to those you love or to causes you hold dear.”
Jupiter in Sagittarius
Sagittarius feels right at home in Jupiter, because the Great Benefic is it’s ruling planet! As such, this placement suggests the power of manifestation: Opportunities and abundance flow to you, and you’re the very definition of “lucky.”
“Your luck comes from sharing your knowledge and ideas with others,” says Lang. “You’re optimistic about the future, and your expectation of goodness allows you to attract goodness in return. You may be lucky when it comes to sports, gambling, publishing, teaching, or leading a spiritual group. It’s important to avoid extremes in any one of these areas, especially gambling or spiritual fanaticism.”
Jupiter in Capricorn
Kind of akin to Virgo in Jupiter (typical Earth signs), Jupiter’s placement here is reflective of someone who can blend luck with practical action steps.
“Your luck comes through strategizing about your goals and being prepared for opportunities should they arise,” Lang says. “You’re conscientious and hard-working, but be careful not to become a workaholic. You’re ambitious and driven.”
Jupiter in Aquarius
“Jupiter in this sign shows humanitarian interests,” says Lang. “What good is abundance if you can’t share it to make the world a better place? This is your quest.”
If your placement is Jupiter in Aquarius, you probably have a commitment to justice, philanthropy, and friendship. As a result, your luck comes through community engagement and your social networks. “You might also find luck in tech fields or through investing in technology, but consult with an expert about this,” Lang says.
Jupiter in Pisces
Jupiter is well-placed in Pisces, and it indicates a strong intuition. That’s often what guides you to abundance: Following your gut helps determine where to seek opportunities, and often they’ll flow to you without much effort.
“You’re lucky when it comes to health, spirituality, and creativity,” Lang says. “You’re the first to help others because you have such a gift for compassion, but realize you don’t have to self-sacrifice in the process.”
