Jupiter’s keyword is intuition and quite often keywords for an astrological planet are linked to one another. For example, intuition is linked with luck, and being lucky has been associated with people who are generally optimistic. Another word belonging to the Jupiterian realm and you can see how this vocabulary relates to one another like a big astrological family tree.
The definition for intuition is an instinctive knowing (without the use of the rational function) some call it a “hunch“. The root of the English word derives from the Latin word intuitus meaning roughly “the act of achieving knowledge through direct perception or contemplation”. Scholars have termed intuition as a judgement about things that are consonant with a person’s worldview.
It is difficult to express into words what intuition is because it is non-rational and can‘t be explained. The number one question you are confronted with regarding intuition is – How do you know what you know? It is the type of knowledge that comes to us without our rational processes or analytic thinking. It is often termed as a higher knowledge that guides us in the right direction. Intuition is the universal intelligent life force, it is that deep wisdom and inner “knowing” it is knowledge appearing without any “rational” explanation. You might have all the technical information and analysis, but it is the intuition that “knows” which way to go.
Jupiter has a nose for the next big thing, and he can intuit where something is going to catch on like wildfire. Individuals who are successful at gambling often have “hunches” that lead them in the right direction. Usually, they are highly attuned to Jupiter and just “know” what horse will win the race. Don’t ask them to logically explain their choice because you will not get a rational explanation. For example, you might have Jupiter in the 8th house and have that intuitive business plan or you put your money into shares that are not popular now, but you “know” that something is going to grow, expand and catch on quickly, and you are usually right. Others may have gone with a safe bet and walked down the known path, but Jupiter doesn’t use logic he intuits the future. Therefore, intuition is not logic or fact it goes beyond that. You might get a hunch that something is going to happen, and to your surprise it does happen.
