THE EFFECTS OF JUPITER ON VOCATION IN the days when a man was either a lord or a serf, a knight or an innkeeper, it was comparatively easy to determine with exactness a man's vocation. In modern days, however, there are thousands of different and characteristic types of employment. While Jupiter is the key to the type of work which may bring a man money or profit, it does not necessarily follow that it is the kind of vocation for which he has the greatest inclination. Too often, indeed, his inclination is not that for which he is best adapted, or it is incompatible with his environment and education. On the other hand, an accurate observer may often see a person with distinct abilities for a certain type of work, and yet he recognizes that, for some other reason, he had an inability to make a success of that work. 

For example, those born with Jupiter in Aries are seldom contented and happy unless they can be in a type of work where leadership, personal self-assertiveness, and pioneering are necessary to success. Those with Jupiter in Aries are never contented with a routine job, or one in which their personalities are constantly subjected to others. 

These people have ability in managing large enterprises or organizations, and have a desire to be at the head of any undertaking in which they may be engaged. They find it necessary, however, to guard against giving the impression that they are over-confident and that their ideas are not practical. Men active in politics, club or organization work, and those who meet with success in military life, or in any business connected with fire, railroads, or machinery, are born with Jupiter in Aries. Even if not personally interested in these undertakings, investments in them should yield good returns. People born between March 21st and April 21st, July 21st {394} and August 21st, and November 21st and December 21st prove fortunate to those having Jupiter in this sign in a business way, and undertakings which lead up to them at these times in any year will stand a good chance of succeeding, or may prove to be connecting links to more important things later on. 

Those born with Jupiter in Taurus require a kind of work where constructiveness, systematic building, and a certain amount of routine bring success. Even though the mind may be radical in interest and advanced in thought, the method of procedure will be one of careful and conservative action. 

These people are natural builders; but it largely depends upon circumstances whether they use their constructive force in erecting a skyscraper, in running a ranch, in opening a new mine, in building a factory, or establishing a rundown business on a paying basis. As Taurus rules the throat, Jupiter in this sign often gives one a sympathetic speaking or singing voice. It is interesting to note that Jupiter was in this sign in the horoscopes of Sarah Bernhardt and Geraldine Farrar. Women having Jupiter in Taurus make natural home builders, devoted mothers, and are successful as interior decorators or in activities with or for children. 

People born between December 21st and January 21st, April 21st and May 21st, and August 21st and September 21st, prove fortunate in a business way to those having Jupiter in this sign; and undertakings, which lead up to them at these times in any year, will stand a good chance of succeeding or prove to be connecting links to greater things later on. Landed property will prove to be one of their safest forms of investment. 

Those born with Jupiter in Gemini will have a natural desire to make money through some professional, diplomatic or mental pursuit. Seldom will any form of manual labor be agreeable. Brilliance takes the place of routine, and any routine task will be obnoxious. Patience and persistence are not characteristic virtues of this type. 

Many bankers, brokers, promoters, lawyers, diplomats, public speakers, actors, artistic and professional men have been born with Jupiter in Gemini. These people should guard against allowing their interests to be too much divided, although their Jupiter being in Gemini often makes them successful in two different enterprises {395} at the same time. They should guard against going into new ventures before looking into them most carefully, as they naturally attract schemers. These people have an ability to get their own way, without arousing opposition, which amounts almost to a gift. 

The cut-and-dried business man, unless he is very polished, does not appeal to the average woman having Jupiter in this sign. 

People born between January 21st and February 21st, May 21st and June 21st, and September 21st and October 21st will prove fortunate in a business way to those having Jupiter in this sign; and undertakings which lead up to them at these times in any year will stand a good chance of succeeding or will prove to be connecting links to more important things later on. 

People born with Jupiter in Cancer have a splendid sense of the practical and natural values of life. The disposition allows for a wider range of vocation, but not for any wider attitude toward the work at hand. Some of our most successful politicians, manufacturers, wholesale merchants, chemists or men interested in shipping or other enterprises connected with liquids, have Jupiter placed in Cancer. It often causes them to deal with something that is used in the home or on the person, and gives excellent aptitude for making money, as well as the ability to accumulate it, although they are often too conservative in business, frequently missing opportunities through too great caution. It makes one a gracious host and a liberal provider for the home. 

Women having Jupiter in this sign frequently marry men in public life. They make excellent nurses, meet with success in domestic science or in the care of children and the home, also in work connected with food. 

People born between February 21st and March 21st, June 21st and July 21st, and October 21st and November 21st, will prove fortunate in a business way to those having Jupiter in this sign, and undertakings which lead up to them at these times in any year will stand a good chance of succeeding or will prove to be connecting links to more important things later on. 

Those born with Jupiter in Leo find any phase of work which requires subjection irksome and difficult. Such a nature could not possibly be happy in being a personal servant or a clerk behind the counter. He would be in perpetual revolt, and only those phases {396} of work where some opportunity for command is possible, interest these personalities. Many officers of banks, directors and superintendents of important enterprises, captains of industry, and heads of departments are born with Jupiter in Leo. If circumstances over which these people have no control force them to fill inferior positions, they will not only find it almost impossible to adapt themselves to conditions, but they will be in danger of stirring the jealousy or enmity of their superiors. Furthermore, if they are in a subordinate position they may never know their latent possibilities; for until there is something great at stake, they will not be stirred to do their best and the powers lying dormant will not come to the surface. 

People with Jupiter in Leo should look into any opportunities which lead up to them between March 21st and April 21st, July 21st and August 21st, and November 21st and December 21st of any year; even though they may not seem important, they may prove to be, directly or indirectly, stepping stones to greater things later on. These would also be propitious times to inaugurate new ventures, or for extending their business activities. People born at these periods in any year may be in a position to benefit them, or, because of their disposition or temperament, may bring to the surface their most desirable side. 

Those born with Jupiter in this sign have many generous impulses and inspire confidence in people of wealth or power; they naturally attract and enjoy much good fortune, provided they make use of their opportunities. They must, however, guard against going to extremes in the expenditure of money, particularly on friends or those they love. 

Those born with Jupiter in Virgo are exceedingly systematic; and, when they have this position, can carry on, with great force and precision, any phase of routine task which requires detail and persistence. They have pronounced technical command. They have two fields of activity open to them. Some of our most successful literary men, accountants, secretaries and teachers, as well as successful manufacturers, builders, miners, foresters, biologists and agriculturists were born with Jupiter in this sign. 

Women having Jupiter in Virgo are successful in business life, or as librarians, private secretaries, teachers or in any position where {397} practical, analytical, critical or constructive faculties are required. The natural tendency to be constructive makes both men and women judicious in the expenditure of money, regardless of the income, and gives them a dislike for undue extravagance or waste. They make wise buyers. 

People with Jupiter in Virgo should look into any opportunities which may lead up to them between December 20th and January 20th, April 20th and May 20th, August 20th and September 20th; for, even though these opportunities may not appear vital at the time, they may prove connecting links to greater things later on. People born at these times will usually prove fortunate to them in a worldly way. They would do well to consider, as investments, real estate, mining property, manufacturing enterprises, or mortgages. 

Those born with Jupiter in Libra show a type of vocational interest where breadth of concept or even balance of judgment is of supreme worth. It is a position of such sensitiveness that rough, manual tasks or the stress of war would be most irksome. There is that type of personal balance and discrimination which might make the native a jeweler, a painter or a judge, but he could not be a butcher or a general. It gives a keen sense of justice and the ability to come to fair and just conclusions, even though adverse to their own personal interests. In fact, these people often show better judgment in the management of money belonging to others than in the management of their own, particularly if connected with speculation. For this reason, unless circumstances seem very favorable, it would be well for them to be a part of a large organization or have a partner who has qualities which complement their own, rather than to be in business for themselves. Some of our most successful lawyers, judges, bankers, brokers, engineers, architects, electricians, as well as artists, are born with Jupiter in Libra. Therefore, any of the above professions or lines of business would prove more agreeable as a calling than anything purely commercial. If forced into the commercial world, they will feel dissatisfied, even though they meet with financial success. If they choose a hobby or an avocation, this will help to make their life seem more nearly complete. 

It would be well for those having Jupiter in Libra to look into opportunities which lead up to them from January 20th to February 20th, May 20th to June 20th, and September 20th to {398} October 20th; for, although they may not appear to be of vital importance at the time, they may prove to be connecting links to more important things later on. These would also be propitious times for making greater effort to advance their interests, to increase their business, or for adjusting misunderstandings. Even though adverse aspects are operating in any particular year, these periods will usually bring some favorable conditions or assist them in taking an attitude which will help to mitigate whatever may be threatened. People born during the above mentioned dates may, in some way, contribute toward their financial interests. 

Those born with Jupiter in Scorpio would be well qualified for a general or for anyone like, let us say, a detective; they are interested in all subtle, secret and exact forms of activity. They would not delight in an open, jolly, offhand type of work, such as travelling salesmanship. These people are very tenacious in the attainment of their desires and ambitions, whether they be for power in the financial, artistic, or social world. They have a great sense of self-protection, but must guard against being too self-absorbed. Scorpio is the sign of great extremes, and can either make one very spiritual and unselfish or very material. It is, therefore, necessary that those who have Jupiter so placed live up to their best, as well as to the letter of the law. Many successful critics, musicians, chemists, and those engaged in mechanical pursuits, as well as officials in large organizations, have Jupiter in Scorpio. 

Women with Jupiter in this sign often make magnetic healers, nurses, masseuses and dentists, or attendants in physicians' offices. 

It would be well for these people to look into opportunities which lead up to them, from February 20th to March 20th, June 20th to July 20th, and October 20th to November 20th; people born between these times are likely to benefit them in a business way. 

Those born with Jupiter in Sagittarius would find sympathetic any sphere of work where clear, penetrating, intellectual precision would produce essential success. A mere social task or emotional occupation, or a material routine kind of work would prove distasteful. These people are natural financiers, and if in a subordinate position, or if forced to deal in small figures, will never get the full benefit of their “luck.” It is so much a part of their destiny to have money and to do everything in a princely way, that, if they force {399} themselves to economize and to save the pennies, they will so change their nature that they will cut themselves off from what would otherwise come to them. Jupiter in this position frequently brings money, though inheritance, and because people of influence, wealth and power have confidence in the judgment of those who have it so placed. These people just naturally attract much good fortune, and, unless they neglect opportunities, they will meet with unusual success and be a power in their world. 

They should look into any opportunities which lead up to them between March 21st and April 21st, July 21st and August 21st, November 21st and December 21st; even though they may not seem important, they may prove to be, directly or indirectly, stepping stones to greater things later on. These would also be propitious times for adjusting any difficulties, or for asking favors. People born at these periods will be in a position to benefit them, or, because of their disposition or temperament, may bring to the surface their most desirable side and have a cheering influence over them. 

Women with Jupiter in this sign are rarely forced to be self-supporting, but, if desirous of earning money, they can be successful in some enterprise of their own, or as advisors, directors, and financial managers. 

Those born with Jupiter in Capricorn have an enormous capacity for detail and routine and are conscientious plodders. They make successful manufacturers, wholesale clothiers, builders, real estate dealers, miners, agriculturists and foresters. 

They should look into any opportunities which lead up to them between April 20th and May 20th, from August 20th to September 20th, and from December 20th to January 20th. These would be propitious times to adjust any business difficulties or for asking favors. People born at these periods of any year are likely to be in a position to benefit them; or, because of their disposition or temperament, they may cooperate sympathetically and have an altogether cheering influence over them. 

Those born with Jupiter in Aquarius enjoy all phases of work relating to human beings. It is a splendid position for diplomats, labor leaders, psychologists, sociologists, and for those types of business men or women who handle many employees. In a business way, these people often prove more fortunate to others than to themselves, {400} and for this reason they should hesitate before assuming the responsibility of conducting a business of their own; they would do better by being the part of a large organization or in an advisory capacity. If they are following a profession, they would do well to have a competent secretary who will look after the financial end in a businesslike manner; otherwise, because of their leniency, they are likely to suffer from delinquent accounts or from attracting too many clients who take advantage of their humanitarianism. Many competent physicians, architects, inventors, bankers, brokers, ambassadors, statesmen, lecturers and teachers, as well as promoters of big schemes, particularly of a philanthropic kind, or where the object is to improve the general condition of the masses, have Jupiter thus placed. They are often bored by ordinary commercial business; and, if forced into this channel, they should also have a hobby or other interest, in order that their life may be complete. 

They should look into any opportunities which lead up to them between January 20th and February 20th, May 20th and June 20th, and September 20th and October 20th of any year. These would also be propitious times to adjust any difficulties or for asking favors. People born at these periods may be in a position to benefit them, or because of their encouraging disposition, may bring to the surface their most desirable side and have a very beneficial influence over them. 

Those born with Jupiter in Pisces would be bored if obliged to confine their efforts to any mere intellectual type of work; emotion, human association, drama and responsiveness must enter into the vocational interests. Because of their ability to cooperate with their associates, they succeed when connected with large manufacturing concerns; they are also successful in a business connected with steamship companies, waterways or those concerned with liquids. Those engaged in research work for the benefit of humanity, secretarial workers, teachers, orators, dramatists, actors and dancers are frequently born with Jupiter in this sign. 

They should look into any opportunities which lead up to them between February 20th and March 20th, June 20th and July 20th, and October 20th and November 20th. These would also be favorable periods for them to adjust any business difficulties or for approaching those who can advance their interests. People born at these times {401} should play a constructive part in their lives in a business way. 

It must be borne in mind, naturally, that there are many modifying factors which should be taken into consideration when determining the type of vocation which is most favorable to the native. But the position of Jupiter is to be looked for as the prime influence in the native's capacity for making money. 

As an example, the Sun favors positions of authority, responsibility and dignity, and these born strongly under Leo, which is ruled by the Sun, or where the Sun is the dominating influence in the horoscope, would naturally be enabled to hold such positions. 

The Moon, which governs the masses and the public and brings about journeys and much travelling, is fortunate for politicians, the heads of clubs, travelling salesmen, sailors, fishermen, dealers in liquids, nurses, employment in connection with children, dressmakers and general tradesmen. Those born strongly under the sign Cancer, which is ruled by the Moon, or where the Moon is the dominating influence in the horoscope, could fill any of the above positions admirably. 

Mercury is fortunate for journalists, orators, lawyers, accountants, school teachers, secretaries, messengers, letter carriers, book dealers. Those born strongly under either Gemini or Virgo, or where Mercury is the dominating influence in the horoscope, could be successful in any of the above employments. 

Venus is favorable for musicians, painters, singers, dancers, poets, actors, toymakers, florists, beauty specialists, stylists and apparel designers, and domestic servants. Those born strongly under the signs Taurus and Libra, or who have Venus as the dominating influence in the horoscope, could show aptitude for any of the above mentioned vocations. 

Mars favors military men, surgeons, dentists, chemists, workers with metals, especially iron and steel, engineers, railroad men, trades which use sharp tools, including barbers; people born strongly under Aries and Scorpio, or who have Mars as the dominating influence in the horoscope, could fill any of the above professions or employments successfully. 

Jupiter is propitious for senators, judges, ministers, deaconesses, bankers, philanthropists, financiers, and the financial heads of any business. Those born strongly under Sagittarius, or who have {402} Jupiter as the dominating influence in the horoscope, could be successful in any of the above. 

Saturn favors earthy occupations, builders, real estate dealers, farmers, landscape gardeners, geologists, miners, foresters; it is also propitious for jailors, undertakers and night watchmen. Those born strongly under Capricorn, or who have Saturn as the dominating influence in the horoscope, could easily attain success in any of the above mentioned employments. 

Uranus is favorable for government officials, astrologers, psychoanalysts, psychologists, mesmerists, metaphysicians, scientists, inventors, lecturers, explorers, aviators, radio operators, and electricians. People born strongly under Aquarius, or where Uranus is the dominating planet in the horoscope, would be attracted by, or could be successful in, any of the above vocations. 

Neptune favors philosophers, occultists, magicians, inspirationalists, artistic and literary geniuses, and occupations in connection with water and ether. Those born strongly under Pisces, or where Neptune is the dominating influence in the horoscope, would be attracted by, or could attain success in, any of the above mentioned callings.
