Hand, Robert – Jupiter as a Malefic

Jupiter as a Malefic — It is generally realized that every planet, even the so-called malefics, have a positive side. Likewise, most astrologers recognize that the so-called benefics can be abused. However, Jupiter in particular has a genuinely dark side and can become symbolic of a quite negative force in a chart. This lecture describes the nature of this dark side and, more importantly, the conditions in a chart (using actual charts) which indicate the possibility of its emerging in a person’s character. We will also explore what is needed to counter Jupiter’s dark effects.
