Main Period of Jupiter

Jupiter is known as the most beneficial planet in giving positive effects and abundance to the native and the main period of Jupiter Mahadasha is the time when these positive effects manifest in a great amount depending on the placement of Jupiter in the chart.

The period of Jupiter lasts for 16 years and during these years, Jupiter can bring a lot of prosperity, abundance and higher knowledge to the native having good placement of Jupiter in the chart. In addition to above-mentioned significations, Jupiter also signifies family, wealth (2nd house), traditional studies (4th house), children and intelligence (5th house), religion and fortune (9th house) and gains (11th house). These matters that are signified by Jupiter, will be emphasized during the main period of Jupiter.

As we can see, Jupiter signifies the sweetest matters in life and can be one of the most auspicious periods in life bringing great amounts of wealth, prosperity and higher knowledge. For politicians or people working under government can witness a rise in position or be moved into professions that are related to authority. If a person is not related directly to politics, they can get honored by the government and will get their social status improved. Good-natured businessmen will be blessed with growth of their establishments in great amounts or they can get connected to other like-minded, prosperous and influential people who will help the native to grow their success. Family life will bloom and the blessings of a wife in marriage will be emphasized as well as an increase in family members in the form of newborn children.

As Jupiter signifies 9th house and rules over Sagittarius sign, which is natural 9th sign, it can bless a person with a lot of spiritual development which is the highest form of fortune and blessing of Jupiter while wealth being the smaller part of the blessing. Jupiter will be very helpful in obtaining knowledge of astrology or in improving it to the higher level. Additionally, the good transit of Jupiter or Jupiter return will give some of the positive results as well in a smaller amount when compared to the main period of Jupiter.

Negative results from Jupiter

In case of Jupiter being placed in a bad way in the birth chart, there can be negative effects from the main period of Jupiter as well depending how much affliction Jupiter has. As a result, the significations of Jupiter might get damaged.

As Jupiter is the planet of fortune, it might not bless you with proper fortune or the native might face even misfortune during some periods of life. There will be some monetary issues and savings may get decreased to some extent. Students or people, in general, might meet with a guru or teacher who turns up to be a scammer in the end. As a result, people facing similar problems might also lose faith in spirituality and God to some extent. The frustration may bring troubles in the family and there might not be an increase in family members in form of newborn children.



The above-mentioned results are extremely negative and fortunately its very rare when Jupiter is totally negative in a chart that brings only bad results. We can’t forget that Jupiter is the naturally auspicious planet and can save from trouble. Matters signified by Jupiter can get damaged depending on the level of affliction it has. For example, if Jupiter is debilitated and is not involved in any of the positive planetary combinations or yogas in the chart it can give mostly negative results but if Jupiter is slightly damaged, then only some of the areas in life can be damaged and not all of them that are signified by Jupiter. Aspects, conjunctions, placements, and lordships can modify the situation to a great extent.
