What if 1st house lord Jupiter is placed in the 2nd house? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: You are here
For a Sagittarius Rising person, Jupiter gets debilitated in the sign of Capricorn when placed in the 2nd house. Jupiter is a Guru or a teacher and the job of a Guru is to give knowledge and wisdom to others. But when Jupiter is placed in the sign of Capricorn a Guru uses his wisdom in performing physical work which is basically the job of the planet Saturn (owner of Capricorn). That is the reason Jupiter is said to be debilitated in the sign of Capricorn.
The person feels irritated with this placement of Jupiter as he is not able to do what he is supposed to do. Since Jupiter is also our discretion the native's discretion becomes poor to accomplish tasks related to law, religion and higher studies which Jupiter represents. That is the reason debilitated Jupiter becomes often the cause of a lot of arguments and fights related to religion and law.
The major problem comes when Jupiter is debilitated both in the birth chart and the Navamsa chart. Otherwise, this is not much of an issue other than > you are forced to do some physical work instead of acquiring and giving knowledge and wisdom to others. Jupiter is considered exalted in the sign of Cancer and Capricorn is a sign just opposite to the sign of Cancer in the birth chart and so Jupiter is considered debilitated in the sign of Capricorn. A planet which is exalted in a sign becomes debilitated in the sign which is just opposite to the sign where it is exalted.
If Jupiter is debilitated and Saturn (lord of Capricorn where Jupiter is seated) is placed in the sign of Sagittarius (in the first house) in the birth chart then it could become a great issue as then the native could be someone who is not of high morals and can cheat others in the name of religion. Fake Priests have such kind of placement. Actually, Saturn in the sign of Sagittarius does the job of performing religious rituals but when Jupiter is debilitated in the birth chart those rituals become fake and the only motive is to somehow make money. Fake Astrologers are also seen from this same placement.
I have a friend whose Jupiter is debilitated in the Navamsa Chart (not the birth chart) in the 1st house and he doesn't believe in God. He says that God doesn't exist and there is nothing like the soul. This is really the problem a debilitated Jupiter creates as it makes a person atheist. Debilitated Jupiter is more of a problem when it happens in both the Navamsa Chart and the birth chart as then the person is immoral from the inside (Navamsa) and also implement his immorality in the real life also (birth chart). A Navamsa Chart tells you what you are from inside while the birth chart is your life's situation.
Debilitated Jupiter in the 2nd house may not be good for managing finances and dealing with the government laws as 2nd house represents the finances and sensual pleasures of life. Your discretion may not work properly in dealing with the finances and filling of the government taxes. The person may also be involved in money laundering especially if Jupiter is debilitated in the 2nd house in the Navamsa Chart also.
However, since the 1st lord is placed in the 2nd house the main purpose of life is to deal with the family, family assets, food and finances and also self-enjoyment. This is because the Ascendant of a person tells the purpose of life. Your major aim of life becomes to acquire wealth and luxuries of all life for yourself and for your family. With this placement, the person becomes very much family oriented. I am not sure with debilitated Jupiter though but in general, that is the case with 1st house lord in the 2nd house.
But a lot will depend on the location of Saturn (the lord of 2nd house where Jupiter is seated) what exactly you will do when it comes to profession. If Saturn is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Scorpio you may even work in a Godown or backyard, kitchen or even at some construction site or some isolated place far from the real world such as farmlands and country borders. You may even be a cook at the borders in some military camp especially if Mars is placed in the sign of Aries in the 5th house.
Considering Jupiter in the 2nd house if Saturn is placed in the 11th house you could be into the financial department of some iron, steel, coal, oil or petroleum company as Saturn represents all these things and 11th house is the house of large organizations. You may also invest in such companies (through stocks) as 11th house is also the house of your investments. You may also get gains through these investments.
Again, considering debilitated Jupiter in the 2nd house if Saturn is placed in the 10th house you may then work for the government in the financial or food department. You may also be into the manufacturing of food or luxury items which Venus represents as 10th house is the house of manufacturing and the image or goodwill of your brand or business.
Again considering Jupiter in the 2nd house if Saturn is placed in the 9th house it means you value higher education, as 9th house is of higher education, but it will be delayed as Saturn is a slow-moving planet. You could also be a teacher of religious studies or law with this placement. You could also be someone who provides fun and entertainment or food in the long distance journey.
Again considering Jupiter in the 2nd house if Saturn is placed in the 8th house it could give you long life as Saturn is a delay and 8th house represents death and so Saturn delays your death or gives long life. Here your sexual life, however, suffers as Saturn restricts the sexual activities. You become very disciplined about sex and you don't want to do it. This in a way is good for good health and money as Venus gets debilitated when you do a lot of sex. You may do a lot of cooking with this placement and you may be a cook.
