When it’s transiting between different zodiac signs, it affects different people differently. It can topple or balance the financial and emotional condition of every person.
Legends of Planet Jupiter in Astrology
Planet Jupiter has many mythological legends attached to its existence. There are 2 that are incredibly popular in astrology. According to the sacred Hindu Vedas, Jupiter was the Guru of Gods, Guru Brihaspati. He used to counsel all Gods in political matters. Once he visited Lord Indra (God of Heaven) in his court. But Indra was so consumed with pride that he did not greet his Guru. Seeing how proud Indra had become, Guru Brihaspati decided to teach Indra a lesson. He left the council of Gods and went invisible. Guru shukracharya, who was the counselor of the demons, took this as an opportunity and advised the demons to attack the Gods. As a result of fighting a war without a Guru, the Gods suffered a defeat. Lord Indra, personally, had to suffer through a series of misfortunes until Lord Shiva finally eased his pains. So, Rigveda makes mention that a person (even a God) who disrespects a teacher falls for his own doom. Another legend is about the wife of Planet Jupiter, Devi Tara (the goddess of the sky). According to Hindu legends, the Moon (Chandra Dev) was enchanted by the beauty of Devi Tara. It resulted in an affair between the two. They, Devi Tara and the Moon, had an illegitimate Child, Planet Mercury. It is believed to this date that Jupiter bears animosity with Mercury since it reminds Jupiter of the infidelity of his wife.
