There are many connections between tarot and astrology, and one of them is the fact that each planet of astrological importance is connected to a number of tarot cards.
Jupiter is the planet of expansion, growth, development, blessings and miracles, good luck, and health. It’s a planet of going the distance, literally and in the abstract, ruling over long-distance travel, the need to move and be free, higher education, laws, and testing one’s luck (gambling, risky behavior). Its motto is “I grow”.
It’s the ruler of Sagittarius and Pisces and of the 9th house. The Major Arcana card it’s associated with directly is The Wheel of Fortune. The other Major Arcana cards it’s connected to due to the signs it rules over are Temperance and The Moon.
The Jupiterian aspect of The Wheel of Fortune speaks about changing fortunes and the mobility of energy, allowing growth and development or running into stagnation.
The Jupitertian aspect of Temperance speaks about divine intervention through inner balance and peace, achieving a state of being blessed and manifesting miracles as a result of that tranquility.
The Jupiterian aspect of The Moon talks about making connections between the abstract and the concrete and helping those ties grow stronger and more relevant.
Now let’s see what Minor Arcana cards are connected to Jupiter.
The Jupiterian aspect of Six of Wands (Jupiter in Leo) talks about the celebration of success, accomplishment, and public recognition.
The Jupiterian aspect of Nine of Cups (Jupiter in Pisces) talks about wish-fulfillment and blessings coming one’s way, but it can also be a warning of excess in celebration (particularly in the drinking area).
The Jupiterian aspect of Four of Swords (Jupiter in Libra) talks about the power of healing once the mind is rested and stilled.
The Jupiterian aspect of Eight of Swords (Jupiter in Gemini) talks about expanding thoughts until they can become one’s only reality, a shield or barrier separating them from the rest of the world.
The Jupiterian aspect of Two of Pentacles (Jupiter in Capricorn) talks about the continued efforts of handling multiple tasks, goals, jobs, situations and trying to make the most of each.
