What your Jupiter sign means in astrology and what it reveals about you




What your Jupiter sign means in astrology and what it reveals about you

What makes you lucky?

In astrology, there is one planet that is known to bring fortune, favor, miracles and blessings — Jupiter. Also known as “the Great Benefic,” it showers us with opportunities for growth, expansion and happiness. Depending on where it is in our birth charts, we can learn a lot about how we attract our own luck.

While many people know their Sun sign, Ascendant (Rising sign) and Moon sign, understanding someone’s Jupiter placement explains how we pursue our life experiences and open up to greater wisdom, faith and spirituality.

Jupiter’s energy is optimistic, hopeful, compassionate and generous. I often refer to it as a “guardian angel” that is always there to guide and enrich your life. Jupiter takes 12 years to go around the Sun, so it generally spends about 12 to 13 months in each zodiac sign. When the planet eventually makes its path back to the same zodiac sign and degrees that it was at the moment of someone’s birth, that is called a Jupiter Return. This will often be a time of tremendous new beginnings and growth.

During these periods, one can expect a lot of extra good luck, but it is wise to plan ahead and seize the day to make sure that you’re beginning a new 12-year pattern that is filled with action and new horizons. Life is as much about creating your path, as well as working with the powerful cosmic factors that impact our journeys.

Jupiter in Aries is a powerful placement for this mighty planet. In the zodiac sign of Cardinal Fire, people with this energy find their greatest luck when they take the lead and step into the spotlight. They are able to find prosperity and opportunity when they take action and seize the day, rather than waiting for others to make it happen for them. When they choose to innovate, inspire others and show their courage, the world bends more easily to their will. These people tend to think big, know when it’s ideal to take risks and make their own opportunities manifest. When the Sun is in Aries, Leo or Sagittarius, you shine brightly.


Jupiter in Taurus is an excellent placement when it comes to attracting luck through hard work, patience and practicality. These individuals tend to have better opportunities drawn to them around money and wealth, especially when they are inherently generous and charitable. By focusing upon tangible results and building strong plans, these individuals often see long-term investments and success happen. However, they should beware of overindulgence or becoming complacent with having too much pleasure. When the Sun is in Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn, you have an extra dose of fortune on your side.


Jupiter in Gemini is all about connecting with others and utilizing communication to bring prosperity and luck. Individuals with this placement excel in writing, speaking and media. Opportunities come to them when they are social, open-minded and versatile. By showing curiosity about other people and the world, their lives will be enriched greatly. Seeking knowledge and opening their perceptions of the world will lead to fascinating discoveries. Expect the most blessings during Gemini, Libra and Aquarius seasons. Jupiter is known to be in its “detriment” here, meaning that it is a slightly weaker placement than others — but that does not mean someone with this will by any means be unlucky.

Jupiter in Cancer is one of the luckiest placements for our Great Benefic to be! That is because the planet is known to be “exalted” here — meaning that it can very easily give its most magnificent blessings easily. That is because Cancer is the zodiac sign known as Cardinal Water and resonates so well with the natural tendencies of Jupiter. People with this in their birth charts can expect to find great luck when they are compassionate, sensitive and charitable. By helping others, they become more enriched in all ways, as well. Also, people with this energy often have highly developed intuitive senses. Areas of fortune could be in food, hospitality or real estate industries. More luck will shine on you during Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces seasons.


Jupiter in Leo is a very regal place for the planet to reside! People with this energy are often highly creative, confident and eager to stand in the spotlight. These individuals may excel in entertainment, media and art, or in industries relating to children. Their joyful and youthful energy will inspire others to connect with them. By being generous and kind, they can get very far. However, these people must watch out so they do not become too vain, self-centered or egocentric. This will alienate others rather than allow them to be attracted by their inner light. The luckiest times of the year for them will be when the Sun is in Aries, Leo or Sagittarius.

Jupiter in Virgo is all about using hard work and patience to manifest one’s dreams. People with this placement are often very focused on service to others and will find great success when doing so. They have a natural edge in business and management. Being realistic and grounded will allow them to see great profit and fortune over time. Having a clear direction and putting in the effort will bring long-term results. These individuals may not see instant results or lucky breaks quite as often because Jupiter in Virgo is known to be in its “detriment,” which is a slightly weakened place in the sky. However, that does not mean that they are inherently unlucky — they just need to keep at it to see the greatest benefits in time. The best times of the year for these people will be during Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn seasons.


Jupiter in Libra brings one a natural tendency to find luck when approaching the world from a fair and balanced perspective. Often, these people will be drawn to partnerships and find fortune blesses these unions, as if by finding their perfect mirror in business or love, the world works more fluidly for them. By bringing good judgment, wit and charm to their interactions, these people are often highly popular and very social. Communication and intellectual pursuits will fare well for them, too. Lastly, they may also excel in beauty or design-based industries. When the Sun is in Gemini, Libra or Aquarius, they will find more opportunities to grow.


Jupiter in Scorpio brings someone a magnetic and powerful personality. It helps them to find their greatest luck when they put everything they have into a project, plan, endeavor or relationship. By focusing their intense emotional and mental powers, they effectively bend fortune in their favor. By tapping into their sensitive and intuitive abilities, these individuals can help themselves and others transform experiences into meaningful life lessons. Industries of luck may be anything that is investigative, surgery, banking or psychology. Each year, as the Sun graces Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces, these people will feel luckier.


Jupiter in Sagittarius is one of the luckiest placements to have our Great Benefic! That is because the planet is “domicile” — or home — in this zodiac sign since it is the natural ruler of this Fire sign. Individuals with this energy are optimistic, inspirational, academic and spiritual. They often hunger to experience everything that life has to offer and will pursue every opportunity to learn more about people and the world. They tend to have luck shine upon them most often when they are open-minded and expressing their freedom, rather than being boxed into one plan for too long. Industries of success could be travel, education, media or international business. Aries, Leo and Sagittarius seasons will bring them light.


Jupiter in Capricorn brings someone a personality that focuses on disciplined, practical goals in the pursuit of long-term success. Greatest fortune and luck will be drawn to them when they are being methodical and realistic about plans. Being ethical in life, finance and business will allow them to see more blessings manifest. Individuals with this placement tend to be highly ambitious and cunning to see their goals become a reality. However, because Jupiter is in a weakened state in this zodiac sign, known to be in its “fall,” people with this placement need to practice sharing and helping others as well as taking what they think they deserve. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn season will bring new opportunities to them.

Jupiter in Aquarius is one of the best placements for social involvement, community projects and building a vast network. By doing so, people with this energy can see great fortune and luck smile upon them from the benevolent individuals they meet and know. Cooperating and collaborating with others will bring these people a multitude of blessings and happy opportunities to thrive. Having an open mind, being progressive and thinking outside of the box will allow them to break the rules and march to the beat of their own drum — while attracting miracles in the process. Industries of luck would be technology, science or social activism. When the Sun moves through Gemini, Libra or Aquarius, greater growth can be expected.


Jupiter in Pisces is one of the luckiest natal chart placements because our Great Benefic is one of the co-rulers of this Water sign — known to be in “domicile” here. Fortune smiles upon those people, as they often seem to be led by a higher power to be at the right place at the right time! By tapping into their compassion, creativity, spirituality and intuition, they can unlock limitless blessings from the universe and draw happiness to them. Serving, healing and helping others will bring them tremendous good fortune, as they not only bring their light to the world but find that they share in making the world a better place. Some of these people may be drawn to the mystical arts or esoteric sides of life and could find great rewards by tapping into them. Each year, as the Sun moves through Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, they will feel brighter.

Jupiter takes 12 years to go around the Sun, so it generally spends about 12 to 13 months in each zodiac sign.

Sports world reacts to John Madden’s death




Sports world reacts to John Madden’s death

Legendary NFL coach and broadcaster John Madden died Tuesday morning at 85, the NFL announced. News of the football icon’s passing hit Twitter on Tuesday evening, and athletes, coaches and broadcasters from across the sports world reacted.

Fellow broadcasting legend Dick Vitale, who is currently battling cancer, called Madden “the greatest analyst of all time of any sport” in his Twitter tribute.

Former Yankees pitcher and notable Raiders fan CC Sabathia said “your legacy will live forever.” Madden coached the then-Oakland Raiders from 1969-78, a couple of years before Sabathia, a Vallejo, California native, was born. Lakers star LeBron James had similar words about Madden’s lasting legacy, adding an infinity emoji.

Former tennis star and social justice activist Billie Jean King recalled meeting Madden as a “privilege.”

Radio voice of the Rangers Kenny Albert, a five-sport broadcaster who’s been with FOX Sports since its inception in 1994, shared a photo circa 26 years ago to remember Madden.

ESPN’s Bomani Jones took a bit of a shot at current color commentators, noting that Madden “set an unreachable standard.”

Frank Caliendo, who’s made a career out of impersonations, including one for Madden, said he was surprised how emotional he felt.

Several football players, and others, including Saints running back Mark Ingram II and former Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, credited Madden with being part of the reason why they love football.

Rams wide receiver and NFL MVP contender Cooper Kupp quote the late coach in his tribute: “The road to Easy Street goes through the sewer.”

Miles McBride’s Knicks role will lessen with Kemba Walker’s resurgence




Miles McBride’s Knicks role will lessen with Kemba Walker’s resurgence

MINNEAPOLIS — The Knicks got back another body in rookie point guard Miles McBride, who was cleared from protocols Tuesday and rejoined the team in Minnesota.

But there is no longer any hype for the rookie’s return. Kemba Walker is back as the starting point guard and coming off winning Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors with four standout games, including his Christmas Day spectacular. The Knicks have gone 2-2 since Walker regained the starting job.

“It’s great,’’ coach Tom Thibodeau said. “He had a great week. He’s playing great basketball. The team winning helps him get recognized and he was a big part of driving that winning. It’s great for the team.’’

McBride was also spectacular in his last outing before getting COVID-19, when he played the entire second half Dec. 16 in Houston and seemingly earned a spot in the rotation. In fact, McBride had strung together two decent outings before he was ruled out. But things have changed since his emergence and McBride is likely back to being a bit player.

Without a practice, McBride wasn’t even expected to see time when the Knicks faced the Timberwolves to kick off a four-game road trip.

Of course, with Walker’s arthritic knee, anything is possible. The Knicks play Detroit on Wednesday in a back-to-back, so it’s uncertain whether Walker will complete both contests. In addition, Immanuel Quickley is out of COVID-19 protocols but Thibodeau wasn’t sure he was ready for meaningful minutes.

That left Walker against the depleted Timberwolves, who were missing their three top players (Anthony Edwards, Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell), all because of COVID-19 .

When McBride got sidelined by the virus and Derrick Rose needed ankle surgery, Walker was resurrected by Thibodeau and it’s been a stunning comeback story.

Though Thibodeau has clear reservations about Walker based on his nine-game banishment due to his defensive malaise as an undersized point guard, he admitted after the Christmas Day triple-double against Atlanta that Walker is playing “much more aggressive.”

Walker’s triple-double that featured 10 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds was a lot different than his prior outing, when he scored 44 points against Washington.

“I thought his passing was terrific,’’ Thibodeau said before the Knicks resumed their schedule.

“Kemba had control of the game. The game tells you what to do. That’s what I loved about the way he played. I don’t think he forced anything. They puts size on him and were aggressive in their pick-and-roll coverage. He didn’t fight it. He attacked pressure the way you like to attack pressure. You don’t fight pressure with pressure. Don’t try to split it. Get rid of it, go to the backside. Let the game tell you what to do.’’

The Knicks coach is finally seeing all the elements of what Walker can do. Before his demotion, Walker was nothing more than a no-defense, 3-point shooter whose plus-minus was an abysmal minus-122.

Thibodeau was also concerned about his durability in sitting out two of the three back-to-back sets. The last load management game in Atlanta in late November triggered Thibodeau’s decision.

But now it’s only superlatives from Thibodeau in judging the last four games.

“Sometimes it’s going to be his shooting, sometimes it’s his penetration and getting in the paint to force a collapse and sometimes they’re being aggressive with their traps get rid of the ball quickly,’’ Thibodeau said. “The overall play, his rebounding. When your guards rebound, those are key to fast breaks. The more guard rebounding we get the better we can be. ‘’

The Knicks still have three players in protocols — centers Nerlens Noel and Jericho Sims and the newly infected Wayne Selden. Quickley and Kevin Knox were cleared on Christmas but were held out for conditioning.

No matter. The Knicks go as Kemba goes.

“He’s much more aggressive,’’ Thibodeau said. “That was the challenge. At the beginning of the year he and Evan were two new starters. Sometimes guys are trying to fit in. he’s being very aggressive which is the way we want him to play. Not deferring at all. When he and Julius [Randle] are aggressive like that our team is different.’’

Bar raises dramatically for Zach Wilson in matchup with Tom Brady, Buccaneers




Zach Wilson and Tom Brady

When Zach Wilson stares across the MetLife Stadium field at the opposite sideline this Sunday, it won’t be Trevor Lawrence he’ll be looking at as his game-day counterpart.

Lawrence, drafted by Jacksonville one spot before the Jets selected Wilson at No. 2 overall last April, is a contemporary.

This Sunday at MetLife, the Jets rookie quarterback won’t be staring at a contemporary on the other sideline. He’ll be staring at the GOAT.

Tom Brady.

The bar raises dramatically for Wilson and the Jets, who are coming off of their feel-good, get-well win over the woeful Jaguars and Lawrence this past Sunday.

Brady and Buccaneers, who are 11-4, NFC South division champions and seeking to repeat as Super Bowl champions, play the Jets, who are 4-11 and seeking more signs of development from their rookie quarterback.

To say this is a step up in competition for Wilson and the Jets going from Lawrence and the Jags to Brady and the Bucs is as obvious as pointing out that Tampa Bay receiver Antonio Brown has had a few off-the-field incidents during his otherwise stellar NFL career.

There hasn’t been a lot to keep the interest of the Jets fan this season — other than watching Wilson’s development. That took an unfortunate pause for the four games Wilson missed with a knee injury, but he’s been back for five games and has looked like a better quarterback, throwing only two interceptions in those games (none in the last three) since returning from his injury.

The problem, though, is that Wilson hasn’t been producing enough touchdowns, throwing for three of them and rushing for four others in the past five games.

Baby steps, though.

Wilson was the better quarterback this past Sunday when matched up with Lawrence, who threw for more yards than Wilson did, but Wilson ran for 91 yards, including his electric 52-yard scoring jaunt, and made key throws when he needed them.

Wilson will not win Sunday’s game against Brady and the Bucs throwing for the 102 yards he had against the Jaguars. He and the Jets will need more.

Consider this: Brady enters the game having thrown 37 TD passes and for 4,580 yards this season and averages a league-high 305.2 passing yards per game.

Then this: The Buccaneers average 29.5 points per game this season, second most in the NFL.

And this: Wilson doesn’t have a single 300-yard passing game, averages 183 passing yards per game and has thrown seven TD passes in 11 games.

Seven TD passes is a pedestrian two-game total for Brady.

Wilson and the Jets are playing with house money anyway in what always has been a developmental season, so Sunday against Brady should, at its very least, be a great measuring-stick learning experience for Wilson, who’s studied Brady on tape.

Wilson revealed this month that he watched film of Brady before the Jets played the Eagles on Dec. 5 in an effort to pick up tips on how Brady worked against the Eagles defense when he played them earlier in the season.

“I thought it was really cool to see kind of how he went through his whole process, how he navigated the pocket, different things like that,” Wilson said at the time.

On Sunday, Wilson gets to see that process up close as Brady tries to dissect a Jets defense that has yielded 29.9 points per game this season, the most in the NFL.

That puts an added onus on Wilson to produce on the other side of the ball, because he knows Brady is going to get his. Wilson will likely need to produce four TDs — any way he can — for the Jets to simply remain competitive with the Super Bowl champs.

That’s a lot to ask of a 22-year-old kid who’s produced just 11 TDs in his 11 starts, up against Brady, who’s thrown 618 TD passes and for 83,784 yards in his remarkable career.

It, too, is a lot to ask playing against an aggressive Tampa Bay defense that’s ranked No. 9 in the NFL in points allowed (20.8 per game) and is led by former Jets head coach Todd Bowles, who’d surely like to send a holiday message to his former employer.

If you don’t think Bowles will be blitzing the bejesus out of Wilson, then you probably think Antonio Brown is a living saint.

The good news for the Jets is that Wilson has shown incremental improvements, particularly when it comes to his decision-making and quicker releases on his throws.

“He’s coming along, he’s getting more comfortable, he’s calmer back there,’’ Jets coach Robert Saleh said Monday. “He’s in a great headspace and it’s going to be fun to watch him grow, continue to grow.’’

A big part of that growth will take place this Sunday as he watches the GOAT operate from the opposite sideline at MetLife.
