From Esoteric Astrology, by Alice A. Bailey
See Michael Robbins' Tapestry of the Gods, Volume III
1. Jupiter at the Second Initiation:
“At the second initiation, the candidate comes under the influence of three planets-Neptune, Venus and Jupiter. The three centres—solar plexus, heart and throat—are actively involved.” (EA 70)
2. Jupiter at the Fifth Initiation:
“At the fifth and final initiation, Uranus and Jupiter appear and produce a “beneficent organisation” of the totality of energies found in the initiate’s equipment. When this reorganisation is complete, the initiate can then ‘escape from off the wheel and then can truly live’.” (EA 71)
3. Jupiter—Brings All Things Together:
“Through Jupiter that force is brought to bear which ‘brings all things together’…” (EA 126)
4. Jupiter—in Relation to the Synthesis of Dualities:
“In connection with a lesser duality found in every human being, that of head and heart, of mind and love, and of will and wisdom, the work of Jupiter is to develop these two qualities and bring them into synthetic interplay.” (EA 126)
5. Jupiter—the Beneficent Way of Evolutionary Unfoldment:
“Jupiter and its influences indicate that the way of incarnation is the ‘beneficent’ method of evolutionary unfoldment and that the way of love‑wisdom (2nd ray) is the way for humanity to go.” (EA 127)
6. Jupiter and Vision:
“… the seeing of the vision with which Jupiter rewards the disciple…” (EA 132)
7. Jupiter in Relation to the Working off of Karma:
“presenting opportunity to work off karma [Saturn] and to be successful [Jupiter] in so doing …” (EA 132)
8. Jupiter—the Fusion of Heart and Mind:
“… the fusion of heart and mind, which is the subjective purpose of manifestation.” (EA 139)
9. Jupiter—the Inherent Tendency to Fusion:
“Jupiter gives an inherent tendency to fusion which nothing can arrest. The acievement of ultimate synthesis is inevitable, and this Jupiter promotes.” (EA 139)
10. Second Ray Influences from Jupiter:
“Second ray influences and potencies are abidingly present and pour into our planetary sphere and life, via the Sun (veiling a hidden planet) and Jupiter. These sweep the forces of Leo, Sagittarius, Pisces, Aquarius and Virgo into and through our entire planet and all its kingdoms in nature.” (EA 167)
11. Jupiter—the Outgoing Expression of Love:
“Jupiter is the outgoing expression of love, which attracts to itself that which is desired.” (EA 171)
12. Jupiter—the Fulfillment of Selfless Desire:
“... Jupiter in its lowest aspect gives the fulfillment of desire and satisfied demand, whilst in its highest Jupiter is the outgoing expression of love, which attracts magnetically to itself that which is desired—this time for the good of the whole.” (EA 171)
13. Jupiter is the Orthodox Ruler of Sagittarius:
“The ruler of Sagittarius from the orthodox angle is Jupiter, and from the standpoint of the path of discipleship it is the Earth itself.” (EA 184)
14. Jupiter and Mercury in Relation to the Mutable Cross:
“Mercury is the agent of the fourth Ray of Harmony through Conflict, whilst Jupiter is the medium for expression of the second Ray of Love-wisdom. These two rays govern the mass of men upon the Mutable Cross and are closely concerned with the mass incarnation of the fourth Creative Hierarchy. Their function is the fuse and blend into one cooperative whole the great dualities expressing themselves through the fourth kingdom in nature. The significance of this will be obvious. It is easily apparent how, through the influences of Mercury and Jupiter, material desire can be transmuted into divine love, and the conflict which is the distinguishing characteristic of the human family can be instrumental in resolving dissonance into harmony.” (EA 184)
15. Jupiter—Peace and Progress:
“...this beneficent ruler will lead the human family into the way of peace and progress.”(EA 264)
16. Jupiter in Relation to Virgo and the Second Manifested Creative Hierarchy:
“Jupiter-This is the hierarchical ruler and rules the second Creative Hierarchy, that of the Divine Builders of our planetary manifestation. This is the seventh Creative Hierarchy as well as the second, if the five Creative Hierarchies are counted; in the significance of two and seven much of the mystery underlying these Hierarchies will be revealed.” (EA 263)
“Jupiter ‑ ruler and conveyor of expansion.”(EA 264)
18. Jupiter—and the Christ Spirit:
“... Jupiter, the second ray agent of the Christ spirit.” (EA 277)
19. Rays of the Sun Pour through Jupiter:
“In connection with the Mutable Cross, the rays of the Sun in a threefold form (combining the lowest energies of the threefold Sun) pour into and through the man, via Jupiter. Jupiter is the agent of the second ray which the Sun expresses—cosmically and systemically.” (EA 297)
20. Jupiter Active at Individualization, with the Sun and Venus:
“Several major triangles of force were active when individualisation took place and the “Lions, the divine and tawny orange Flames” came into being and thus humanity arrived on the planet. I would touch here briefly upon one triangle: The Sun (second ray), Jupiter (second ray) and Venus (fifth ray). It will be apparent to you that we here have another sphere of influence of major importance, governed by Leo. It is a triangle to which H.P.B. refers to in The Secret Doctrine, the influence of which she was endeavouring to elucidate. So potent was the influence of this triangle that its effect upon the Moon was to denude her of life by drawing out all the “seeds of life,” thus destroying her influence, for it was undesirable where humanity was concerned.” (EA 301)
21. Jupiter and Expansion:
Virgo Pisces Sagittarius Aquarius
Earth Water Fire Air
Hidden Christ Hidden Saviour Hidden Master Hidden Server.
Jupiter—ruler and the conveyor of EXPANSION” (EA 281)
22. Second Ray Energies Focused through Gemini:
“This second ray energy is very potently focussed through the constellation Gemini via the planet, Jupiter.” (EA 328)
23. Jupiter in Relation to the Cardinal Cross:
“The Cardinal Cross--is responsible for bringing about certain great points of synthesis, as a consequence of both change and crisis. Jupiter is responsible for the focussing of energies at this point.” (EA 350)
24. The Sympathetic Faculties:
“Jupiter governs the sympathetic faculties.” (SD III 463; EA 646)
25. Jupiter—from a Tabulation in the Secret Doctrine:
“Jupiter—Auric envelope—Blue—Thursday” (SD II 455; EA 649)
26. Jupiter—the Symbol of Ritualistic Worship:
Jupiter...is a deity who is the symbol and prototype of ... ritualistic worship. He is the priest, sacrificer, suppliant and the medium through which the prayers of mortals reach the Gods.” (SD II 49 note; EA 660)
27. Jupiter and Brahma:
Jupiter is regarded as the “throne of Brahma.” (SD II 829; EA 660)
28. Jupiter and Cyclic Law:
“Jupiter is the personification of cyclic law.” (SD II 830; EA 661)
29. Jupiter and the Sun:
“The sun used to be called the ‘eye of Jupiter’.” (SD III 278; EA 661)
30. Jupiter as the Logos:
“Plato makes Jupiter the Logos, the Word of the sun.” (SD III. 279.) (EA 661)
31. Jupiter and the Mysteries:
“The Mysteries ... were presided over by Jupiter and Saturn.” (EA 661)
32. Jupiter Blue:
“Occultism makes Jupiter blue because he is the son of Saturn.” (EA 661)
33. Jupiter and the Messiah’s Coming:
“The sign of the Messiah’s coming is the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in the sign of Pisces. (SD III 152; EA 661)
34. A Line of Relationship between Venus-Jupiter-the Sun-Sirius:
“The line of relationship then extends from these onward and outward, and upward (spherically considered) to the Life at the very centre of our Earth's ‘alter ego,’ the planet Venus, to Jupiter and thence to the solar Lord Himself and on to a point in the Sun, Sirius.” (DINA I 768)
35. Forcer Entering our Solar System Via Jupiter:
“Forces which enter into our solar system via Jupiter as the transmitter of divine energies from Virgo and Aquarius which Jupiter esoterically governs. Virgo is esoterically the mother of the Christ child and is, therefore, the emanator of energies which nourish and aid the growth of the Christ consciousness; Aquarius is the coming expression of the group consciousness which is the first and immediate revelation of the ever present Christ consciousness on a large scale in humanity. Jupiter also, exoterically and from the angle of orthodox astrology, rules Sagittarius, the sign of discipleship, and also Pisces, the sign of the world saviours. The implications will, therefore, be obvious to real students.” (EXH 155-156)
36. Jupiter in Relation to Ray VII:
“Ceremonial Observances—Jupiter—Bright Clear Blue.” (EP I 164)
37. The Lord of Love-Wisdom Expresses through Jupiter:
“The Lord of Love-Wisdom, Who is the embodiment of pure love, is regarded by esotericists as being as close to the heart of the Solar Logos as was the beloved disciple close to the heart of the Christ of Galilee. This Life instills into all forms the quality of love, with its more material manifestation of desire, and is the attractive principle in nature and the custodian of the Law of Attraction, which is the life-demonstration of pure Being. This Lord of Love is the most potent of the seven rays, because He is on the same cosmic ray as the solar Deity. He expresses Himself primarily through the planet Jupiter, which is His body of manifestation.” (EP II 23)
38. Jupiter (with Uranus and Venus) Expressing a Great Life (Probably on the Second Ray): “The potency of this Life is such that He requires three complete schemes--all three closely allied and interdependent--through which to express Himself. Uranus, Jupiter and Venus are similarly allied in order to manifest or express a great Life. (EP II 99)
39. Jupiter—A Vehicle for a Super-Principle:
“Three of the sacred planets, it should be remembered, are the home of the three major Rays, of the embodied forms of the three logoic aspects or principles. Other planets are embodiments of the four minor rays. We might consider—from the standpoint of the present—that Venus, Jupiter and Saturn might be considered as the vehicles of the three super-principles at this time.” (TCF 299)
Michael Robbins comments:
A Summary of the Qualities and Processes which Jupiter Represents
1. Jupiter as the Guru:
The Sanskrit term for Jupiter is “Guru”, and Jupiter fulfills this beneficent role. Jupiter teaches, nourishes, gives, pours forth and, in general, fulfills.
2. Jupiter as Guru, in Relation to Spiritual Opportunity:
The Guru, or spiritual teacher, brings spiritual opportunity as does Jupiter. The kind of opportunities depend upon the sign, house position and aspects.
3. Jupiter as Benefactor and Giver of Blessings:
Jupiter is the benevolent giver of blessings. Benevolence is selfless giving (from the very fullness of oneself and without seeking reward). Blessing is thought and action sent forth for the purpose of enhancing the life of others unconditionally—again, with no thought of reward. Blessing is what might be called ‘unconditional positivity’. The sign, house position and aspects of Jupiter will reveal how an individual may become a benevolent, blessing benefactor (a doer of good) for his fellow human beings, and, consequently, how good is likely to return to him—due to deeds well done, either in this life cycle or a former.
4. Jupiter in Relation to Expanded Vision and Philosophy:
Jupiter ever expands the consciousness and this expansion confers vision and, at length, a philosophical perspective—which, truly, is a wise and loving perspective upon life. Philosophy is “philo” (love of) “sophia” (wisdom). In relation to Jupiter, we ask, “How is the expansion of consciousness undertaken? In what literal or symbolic area of the consciousness or form is the expansion to be expected?”
5. Jupiter in Relation to Ritual, Ceremony and Coordinated Worship:
Jupiter rules the hopeful and invocative approach to the divine—to which end, ritual and coordinated worship are designed. Ritual and worship open the life to the inclusion of uplifting, transpersonal energies. When ceremonial work is positively motivated, it invariably enlarges the participation in a wider life and deepens the synthetic understanding of that life.
6. Jupiter—a Broadening, Transpersonal Influence:
Jupiter is a sacred, transpersonal planet, which eventually lifts the consciousness far beyond the strictly personal dimension of living, and brings the broadened social and spiritual dimensions of life to the fore. We grow through association and cooperation with others—whether horizontally, with our peers, or vertically, with those who have transcended our level of evolution (or with those who need our help—which, also, is work upon the vertical arm of the cross of life).
7. Jupiter in Relation to the Principle of Growth:
Jupiter promotes growth through the assimilation of nutrients—whether those nutrients are physical, psychological or spiritual. From the esoteric perspective, Jupiter brings about the growth of the “auric egg” in all its dimensions—not just its beautification or enlightenment—but the expansion of its scope. This means that, Jupiter is involved in the enlargement of the causal body, and perhaps, at an advanced stage of evolution, of the Triadic vehicles as well—the manasic, buddhic and atmic vehicles.
8. Jupiter in Relation to Indulgence and Excess:
The negative side of this Jupiterian expansion could arise through indulgence (excess) and improper assimilation—a condition in which the vehicles begin to approximate what Dane Rudhyar has called an “inglorious sphere” (in other words, they become fat). Then, there occurs growth of the wrong kind—growth which does not conform to the intended archetypal pattern, and which proves a drain upon the energy system. It is hard to carry more weight (of all kinds and in relation to all dimensions) than one should. The complementarity of Saturn is needed to keep Jupiterian growth within due bounds.
9. Jupiter in Relation to Supplementation through Association:
Jupiter allows more in, and opens the gate to growth through association, through the supplementation by others in the group. Benefits arise through social contact and cooperation.
10. Jupiter in Relation to Upliftment and Abundance:
Jupiter is the planet of upliftment. Saturn binds to earth; Jupiter raises into greater ease, greater expression, greater scope, and, onwards, towards abundant living. Through Jupiter, the soul stimulates within the personality uplifting, ennobling desire (which is aspiration), and leads to the fulfillment of the desires it has induced.
Negatively, if the motivation is too selfish and personal, Jupiter promotes the wrongful growth of those patterns and conditions which stand in the way of the spiritual upliftment of the personality. It has been said that we must be careful about what we desire, because we are liable to receive it. This saying concerns the dynamics of Jupiter; Jupiter brings success and fulfillment, but what is the quality of that which is fulfilled and made successful?
11. Jupiter—the Preserver:
Jupiter is the “Preserver” and is closely connected with the Vishnu aspect of divinity. In early days, it may be the form that is preserved and protected, sometimes by apparent luck and fortuitous good fortune. In a strange way, Jupiter as luck, denies the opportunity to face the karma which might bring accelerated growth. The form and ease of the personality are spared, but the consciousness does not grow. One escapes. The personality is relieved; the soul is held back—retarded.
In later evolutionary days, Jupiter acts as the preserver of consciousness, and helps the personality extract wisdom and understanding from all difficult circumstances—presented by such planets of discipleship as Saturn, Mercury and Pluto.
Jupiter in the chart may show how the wholeness in consciousness may be preserved, and, also, how one may act as an agent of preservation (whether of consciousness or form) in the lives of others.
12. Jupiter and the Sense of Well-Being:
In general, Jupiter contributes to the sense of well-being in relation to any part of the energy system it touches, and any department of life through which its expresses.
