3. JUPITER (Brihaspati)
Jupiter is the most auspicious and beneficent planet. Wealthy and influential individuals generally possess a strong Jupiter in their horoscopes, and this reflects the rich rewards of positive karma accumulated in previous lives. Jupiter governs religious activity, financial affairs, personal happiness, and teaching. Jupiter also determines one's spiritual orientation. It is associated with the color yellow, the bodily fluids, education, pilgrimage places, and transcendental wisdom. The Sanskrit name for Jupiter is "guru," indicating a source of divine knowledge and spiritual insight.
If Jupiter is exalted one will be a leader of men, powerful, respected, although susceptible to anger. But if the position of Jupiter in a person's horoscope is debilitated Jupiter can cause personal unhappiness, egotism, sloth, and legal problems. LIGHT BLUE is the cosmic color transmitted by yellow sapphires and other natural yellow gems. Light blue color waves, being very cold, relate to the ethereal nature and are helpful in curing diseases of the glands, the fat system and bodily cavities. Jupiter astral talismans are known to enhance spiritual understanding, facilitate pregnancy and childbirth, improve marital relations, increase one's fortune, and help balance the endocrine system. Jupiter jewels are known to be especially favorable to women by increasing their happiness and contentment.
GEMSTONES: Jupiter's energy is transmitted by natural yellow sapphires, topaz, citrine, heliodor, and other flawless (eye-clean) yellow gems.
NOTE: As Jupiter is incompatible with Mercury and Venus, Jupiter gems such as yellow sapphire should not be used with emerald or diamond. Specifically designed talismans like the Navaratna (nine gems setting) are an exception to this principle.
The particular hue or type of yellow color recommended for each social-religious-economic station of society are listed as follows:
1) Religious practitioners, scientists and educators should use light yellow;
2) Soldiers, administrators and bureaucrats should use orangy yellow;
3) Farmers, bankers and traders should use golden yellow;
4) Servants, laborers and workers should use greenish yellow.
