One more thing that comes to my mind is, the higher the dignity of Jupiter, the easier it may be to get proper guidance.
With Jupiter in Capricorn, we may feel frustrated with lack of guidance we receive.
Mu understand that jupiter has the strongest shad bala in the 1st house, the house of self, dharma. It is weakest in the 7th. 7th from cancer is Capricorn where it is debilitated
a debilitated jupiter lacks the inner wisdom to do what is right. They do things so they don’t get into trouble instead out of their inspirations. They feel luck is not in their favor. You know some people do all the homework, study real hard n get As but they don’t have that deep understanding. Others study just a little but they have that deep understanding of a topic. I think that is the difference between a jupiter in capricorn vs a jupiter in cancer
my father and 2 friends have exalted jupiter n I noticed even though they are not highly educated yet when u talk to them u would have thought otherwise. You sense the wisdom n life experience in them, the purpose…
Thank you everyone for your input. Have you come across a chart where the person has made their Jupiter in Capricorn work on a higher level? How have they managed to do it?
For those of you who are well versed in the sutras, could you point me to the sutras (or copy and paste it here) where it is said that Jupiter is debilitated in Capricorn, please - either in Jaimini or Parashara.
Tropically I also have Jupiter in Capricorn.
Yet, I do follow my inspirations and follow them, and try to understand things deeply. Most people I know don't see me as someone who does not follow her inspirations.
How I see the debilitation in me is that I can be a bit joyless and miserable even while following my inspirations. There is always a black hole lurking, lol (but that is probably due to other factors of my chart).
A certain "woe is me" attitude, which brings on woes. Did the woes cause the attitude or the attitude cause the woes- well that's the chicken and egg question. So this limits the extent to which my life can "expand" based around my inspirations.
While I think I'm optimistic- yet deep down, there is a part of me that perhaps believes things (my life, and life and humans in general), won't really change, which is pessimistic.
I also quite often see myself as unlucky..
I usually just used to have a self-deprecating humour about these things, though. But, I try to be more watchful about it now, so as not to let these sentiments rule my life.
DB planets are in Sushupti state, but it is possible to even perceive that (Turiya).. so that is another observation I had. In some ways, I think they offer a door into a deeper experience.
Emily Dickinson is a famous poet with DB Jupiter. She wrote close to 1800 poems, with only a dozen or so published in her lifetime. Her poetry is very interesting- she has a unique sense of form. And definite deep wisdom that seems to come from another plane.
She didn't achieve any great success or fame in her own lifetime. Perhaps it is DB Jupiter that limited the grand material manifestation of her inspirations. She wasn't married, and had no children either (the other supposedly Jupiterian things).
Yet to say she did not live an inspired life or lacked wisdom would be a very unfair statement to make, IMO. I think she found a true Jupiter within her.
one of her poems:
The Soul selects her own Society —
Then — shuts the Door —
To her divine Majority —
Present no more —
Unmoved — she notes the Chariots — pausing —
At her low Gate —
Unmoved — an Emperor be kneeling
Upon her Mat —
I've known her — from an ample nation —
Choose One —
Then — close the Valves of her attention —
Like Stone —
A person in my life has Jupiter in Capricorn with the 9th and 10th cusps attached to it. He's in his late 20's, and as far as I know, doesn't have any spiritual inclinations. He is however very much entrenched in the material world i.e spending money, venusian lifestyle, etc. which can be explained by other placements in his chart. One thing I have observed about him which may come from the Jupiter in Capricorn influence is that he doesn't have faith in other people's career choices and is pretty judgemental about money. For example, he recently had a conversation with me in which he was complaining about someone's career path and the fact that they're not motivated, "They've never taken the initiative to get a job. Every job they've ever gotten has been handed to them, which is very concerning!" One day, I'll have to muster up the energy to explain to him that it's a 4 of Diamonds birth card he's talking about, so that's just how it's going to be lol
