What is the worst house for Jupiter in Astrology?
Jupiter is the master of the universe. And no house can disturb the Master! Let this be very clear.
It is not Jupiter that is afflicted or disturbed by a certain house. It is the house that is disturbed.
For marriage – sex is required – the art of lovemaking is required – a satisfying sexual union is required – in the case of marriage OR love relationships – along with love, physical or to be precise sexual union is also required. And Jupiter in 7th – makes the matters worse for marriage or for instance real sexual unions! Here Jupiter brings a flavor of ideology – obsession towards having a virgin woman or man. Now in this Kali Yug – who the heck is going to get a virgin man or woman to marry – somebody who is never touched! But Jupiter brings many unwanted moral expectations – leading to many problems in marriage or relationships. Here Jupiter damages the house of seventh – the very nature of house seventh and seventh lord is physical or sexual union – and Jupiter just makes it a difficult deal when it comes to satisfying sexual desires!
There was a man – and a woman was attracted to him. She liked him, she wanted to have ‘deeper’ relation with him – sexual. But this man hesitated, when asked – he said “Who knows if she is safe to have sex with!” – So you see – man with Jupiter in 7th makes matter worse – Jupiter here prevent you from having a smooth sexual union – raising many questions of morality, ethics, safety, trust etc. Many men and women with this placement of 7th house Jupiter are found to be either marrying late or having a failed marriage but not divorced – because Jupiter in 7th – again creates an egoistic view of what the society will say — if divorce takes place! So they remain quiet, unsatisfied in marriage – and yet always smiling – who wants trouble? So they keep smiling, that is the best way to hide the reality.
Marriage, live-in-relationship or simply call it a sexual union – these all are critical to human existence. And so 7th house is extremely important when it comes to experiencing happiness! From all the 12 houses – if marriage fails, if sexual union is not happening, if sexual satisfaction is not drived from a relationship then life certainly becomes an arid land – especially for the souls that are not much evolved. And so to answer your question – there is no worst or bad house for the master – Lord Jupiter – but Jupiter makes the 7th house a difficult house to ‘yield’ its natural results which is marriage, sexual union. The same 7th house Jupiter when placed in the 1st house (ascendant) changes the whole scenario – from negative to positive!
Let it be very clear that all those so called celibates, monks and nuns who repress their sexual needs – reach nowhere – and so you read so many ‘sex scanda’l news around these so called fake celibates, monks and nuns.
Sex is not to be condemned, but respected. Sex is the source of our existence – and how can you condemn the source of your existence? Instead of condemning sex – understand sex. Understanding comes only through real experiences – those experiences can be of this birth or last birth – but without sexual experiences – you cannot understand what sex is all about! And the day you understand sex – you would be able to overcome sex – and that would be your rebirth – that would be the day your true spiritual journey begin! When Jesus says to Nicodemus – Nicodemus is a great scholar of Jerusalem, and he arrives on a dark night to seek the truth, to seek God, to seek true spirituality – Jesus says to Nicodemus “To seek the truth, to seek God – you have to Reborn.” – To reborn means to drop all that you have been running for – EGO, SEX, POWER, MONEY – and Nicodemus understands the message of the master – he goes on to become one of the 12 Apostles (disciple) of Jesus Christ! This is real spiritual journey – not that comes through condemnation and ignorance, but one that comes through deep understanding, and consciousness!
Unless your sexuality rises and reaches to love it is mundane, it has nothing sacred about it. When your sex becomes love, then it is entering into a totally different dimension — the dimension of the mysterious and the miraculous. Now it is becoming religious, sacred, it is no longer profane.
“Sex can be transcended and should be transcended, but transcendence has to be not against nature but with nature, Through nature. Accept your sexuality — it is part of you! And a tremendously important part. You are born out of sex. Each cell of your body is a sex cell. Sex energy is your life energy! — respect it, it is a gift from God. Understand it. Be more and more meditative about it. But drop all prejudices, drop all condemnations. Because when you carry a condemnation you cannot understand a thing. Drop all judgements. Sex is sex — it is a pure natural energy. With great acceptance, love, respect, meditate over it. Go deeper and deeper into it to see what exactly it is. And in that very seeing you will be going beyond it.” – Osho
And Jupiter in 7th house exactly does the opposite! Here you become that typical moral inspector – who will close his eyes, put hands on his ears as soon as the topic of sex comes up – and when you condemn or run away from a topic – you never get away with it – in fact it goes deep into your being and remains a question that is never understood in reality!
The moment a man of awareness realizes the futility of sex – he is ‘on’ the greatest journey of his life – a great transformation – spiritual transformation awaits for him – but this happens only when you ‘go through the experience of sex’ – without experience – one cannot understand the futility of sex and without understanding – one cannot become a true celibate!
So the answer to your question is – it is not the house that affects Jupiter, it is Jupiter that affects the house – in which HE dwells! The King decides what to do with the house, not the house – and Jupiter is the King of Kings!
