Jupiter in astrology, history and myth

The planet of liberation and freedom of expression, Jupiter seeks expansion, though sometimes through exaggeration and over-inflation. Hope and optimism spring from this planet; although tolerant and broad minded, its natives suffer when being too generous with assets they don't possess or committing themselves to schemes that surpass realistic expectations.
