In the natal chart Jupiter reveals how individuals grow within their culture, their religious beliefs and traditions. It also shows how people come together as a society and cooperate with each other. It also reveals the compassionate nature toward those less fortunate. Jupiter also rules universities, the legal profession, charitable organizations, as well as churches (especially of organized religions) of all sizes.
