In astronomy, Jupiter is referred to as the Giant Planet

Measuring at 775 million kilometers from the Sun, Jupiter is the sixth furthest planet. Its mass is eleven times that of the Earth, but if you take into account that its mass is twice that of all the other planets combined, then you’ll quickly understand why it’s known as a ‘Giant Planet’.

That said, it's is a gaseous planet, meaning that in spite of its unbelievable mass, it isn’t overly dense in comparison to other planets. What’s more, a full day only lasts 10 hours, which is particularly surprising considering Jupiter’s enormous size.

Symbolically, Jupiter is known as the God of Gods

Jupiter (known as Zeus in Greek mythology) is the god of light, and has the power of lighting at his disposal. As the father of all, Jupiter watches over everyone and everything and uses his powers to maintain peace and justice. He might be a fair ruler, but even the most courageous beings in Roman mythology live in fear of him.  

He is the son of Saturn. Following his father’s attempt to devour him, he forced Saturn to vomit- saving the lives of his brothers and sisters who had previously been swallowed by their father. The world was consequently divided between Jupiter, who took the Earth and sky, and his brothers- Neptune, who took the sea, and Pluto, who took hell.

Jupiter is often depicted in mythology either with a scepter from which he shoots bolts of lightning, or as a magnificent eagle.

What does Jupiter mean in astrology? - It's the planet of growth

In a natal chart, Jupiter signals the arrival of both success and downfalls. It has the ability to amplify the powers of the other planets (both positive and negative), as well as urge change and growth. It represents our zest for life, our ability to succeed, and our sociability. It can represent male authority in all its forms and can symbolize career and finances.

When in relation with Venus, Jupiter brings stability to romance, but can equally bring about bad news and chaos if it happens to be moving.
