The house placement of Jupiter indicates where we are open to higher inspiration. Those with Jupiter in the 1st house of the self are natural philosophers who attempt to answer some of the ‘big’ questions of existence. In whatever they do, they have the ability to inspire and arouse new life and interest, throwing themselves into something with great initial enthusiasm. Sometimes they are important social, educational or religious thinkers, while others with this placement play out the more sporty side of Jupiter, living the life of the adventurer or gambler. Some are the ‘trendies’ who are up on the latest styles and seen in all the right new places. There are also the nature-loving 1st house Jupiters, who climb mountains to glimpse even more expansive vistas. For some the world is their playground as they rove here and there, encountering others, sharing what they have with them, and then moving on. If we understand a planet in a house to indicate the best way to meet life in that area, then those with Jupiter in the 1st should seek to expand themselves in ways associated with its sign placement. For instance, Jupiter in Pisces should explore ways of opening up the feelings; Jupiter in Aquarius will grow through expanding its understanding; and Jupiter in Leo through increasing the capacity for self-expression.
You are generous, optimistic, cheerful, confident, well-intentioned, with good vitality. You probably like outdoor sports and are good at them. This placement brings many opportunities for personal growth and expansion, including a potential weight problem. Your confidence in yourself makes you a good leader and promoter because you have the ability to inspire the faith of others. You can, however, be extravagant, gullible, over-emotional, egotistical or self-indulgent.
