Jupiter in Pisces

IN Pisces, Jupiter is strong, and the passive, receptive, somewhat psychic character of the sign enables the religious element in Jupiter to develop to its fullest extent, though in a quite unconventional and mystical manner. For example, in the case of Colonel Olcott, a sextile of Neptune is Jupiter's only important aspect; this, perhaps, led him to Theosophy rather than to Presbyterianism. Savanarola, with the trine of Uranus to Jupiter, is very dominant and constructive. Neptune is in opposition within four degrees, giving intense mysticism to the religious spirit. This is, however, far from the strongest complex of his figure. 

Tom Mann, the socialist agitator, has this position of Jupiter. Apart from near conjunctions of Venus and Neptune, there is no aid, and Saturn is square. It is a bad and selfish as well as a weak and untrustworthy complex. 

We have, however, three really great men with this position. Each has the true religious feeling; yet, in each case, it is somewhat masked by the scientific spirit. Herbert Spencer, for example, has no aspects to Jupiter but the sextile of the Sun, the semi-sextile of Mercury and square of Venus. It is by far the weakest of his three great complexes. Goethe has Neptune trine to Jupiter; hence the mystical tinge in his religious thought, and Venus is in opposition. Saturn rising is within ten degrees of making a triple trine with the two former planets, and adds a much-to-be desired severity to the mind. The Venus aspect here only insists on beauty of form, and no doubt determined him as primarily a poet. Sir Isaac Newton {392} has Saturn conjoined to Jupiter, lending wisdom and austerity to his religious conceptions, while the Sun is sextile, illuminating the vision and balancing by his warmth the coldness of Saturn. Uranus, moreover, is trine, giving originality and freedom to the idea. It is an altogether admirable combination, one of the finest that we have had to consider. 

Jupiter in Pisces indicates travel, principally by water, and brings good fortune through occupations ruled by Neptune. It inclines the disposition to be kind, quiet and unassuming. It develops the social instincts, but is apt to leave the native rather easy going and unambitious, unless the planet is well-dignified.
