Planets transit from one zodiac to other at more or less regular intervals. While the sun transits from one zodiac to the next every month, the moon transits every two and a quarter days.
Planets like Mars, Venus and Mercury transit the zodiac many times a year, whereas slower planets Jupiter and Saturn take longer. This transit will affect each person differently according to the zodiac which represents your moon sign. The effects of the transit of slower planets like Jupiter and Saturn are felt for a longer period and hence, are given more importance in Vedic Astrology.
Jupiter is considered to be benefic planet in Astrology. Jupiter confers wealth, children, fortune,luck and marriage. Many ill effects due to the transit of other planets can be nullified by Jupiter’s aspect. He is called Devaguru and auspicious planet and rules Sagittarius and Pisces, exalted in Cancer(Katakam) and debilitated in Capricorn.
the transit of Jupiter
Jupiter is the largest and most benevolent male planet. In the zodiac, Jupiter is a large planet and moves very slowly, but when it does move, its impact is unique and significant. In our solar system, it is Jupiter whose heavy gravitational field pulls in attacking asteroids and sling-shots back into outer space before they reach earth. This is a planet who grants protection from the evil tendency of cosmic forces as well as the bad karmic energies built over series of births. As a heavy planet, Jupiter also expands your physical influence depending on the transit.
According to Rig-Veda, Jupiter needs to be worshiped by all because when he is pleased he blesses his devotees with prosperity and intelligence and helps them follow a virtuous path and protects them in every calamity. Jupiter is very affectionate towards people who seek his refuge. His great phase lasts sixteen years. Fasts should be observed on dark-moon (Amavasya) and on Thursday to pacify him.
Jupiter rules Sagittarius (Dhanur rasi) and Pisces (Meena rasi) and Nakshatras like Poonarvasu, Vishaka, and Purvabhadra. He is also associated with the liver, circulation of the blood, and problems caused due to overeating.
