A Jupiter star on your hand tells me that you’re a natural leader. In hand analysis parlance, we refer to this gift marking as “The Valedictorian,” so if you’ve got it you’re the one constantly asked to take charge – of the kids’ school play, of the networking group or of the family details (for your family of origin as well as the one in your current home).
If you’ve got prominent Jupiterian energy in your hands you spend time thinking about power and leadership — the right use and the wrong use of it. The ways that leaders are “good” or “bad.” You may have built a career where you coach executives or other coaches or middle managers on how to become stronger and more effective leaders.
According to Wikipedia,
“In Roman mythology, Jupiter held the same role as Zeus in the Greek pantheon. He was called Iuppiter Optimus Maximus (Jupiter Best, Greatest); as the patron deity of the Roman state, he ruled over laws and social order.”
Jupiter brings this type of energy to you – everything from protecting your turf to creating big goals to gain big rewards – usually material ones to those high ideals that you like to espouse from your corner office. This is Jupiter.
Your index finger is known as Jupiter in hand analysis and depending on your fingerprints or the relative size of the mount below the finger you may have a lot of or a little Jupiterian energy running through your daily processes.
The gift marker of the Jupiter Star sits just below the index finger on the mount. It can be between the finger and the life line. It looks like an asterik and it’s fairly easy to spot. Many women have a Jupiter star sitting off to the side of the Jupiter Mount – on the outer edge of the mount between the Thumb and the Jupiter finger. You may have a six-pointed star (or asterik) an 8-pointed star or a cluster of stars all situated on the mount of Jupiter.
When talking about Gift Markings remember that the marking is there to remind you that it’s imperative for you to use the gift in your daily life. When you don’t use the gift you will suffer the penalities related to that gift marking. The good news is that you can simply choose to step into the gift and start putting it to work in your life and step out of the penalty box. The longer you choose to ignore or stuff away your gift — the more profound and painful the penalty will feel.
Those with Jupiter stars have the gift of the high achiever, you’re used to being in charge either by choice or recommendation and when you’re in your “zone, ” you are comfortable being the visionary. Being in charge and taking on the role of leadership and responsibility are crucial for you to manifest the best possible version of your life purpose – no matter what it is. When you’re using your gift you take full advantage of your healthy ego to get things done, lead others through the muck and mess to the desired outcome and create a path and vision that they can follow.
If you’re not accepting the leadership role, or you’re turning down opportunities or ideas where your leadership is needed simply because you worry it might make you feel bossy, or you convince yourself that “someone else is already doing something similar, so I should just join their group instead of creating my own, ” you’re likely to be suffering the penalty phase of this gift.
The primary penalty is being “second in command” when you should be in charge. Perhaps you decide not to start a new networking group for spiritual-based business because there is already a similar group in your area. You join the existing group and within a few weeks you start feeling antsy. You want to be contributing more, but you don’t want to step on the leader’s toes. You offer to help her in any way possible. You are compelled to provide ideas and guidance for her in gearing the group up a notch. She says she loves your ideas and starts implementing them but rarely recognizes you as a leader in the group. Sure, once in a while she nods in your way when she says “Someone recently suggested…” but you’re not getting any real kudos. You start thinking that you could lead this group, and lead it better. And you find yourself picking apart the leader in your mind, and while you hate to admit it, to the other members of the group. You don’t feel good about this, but you’re convinced that you are doing the “right thing.”
Ah. Sweet Jupiter Star at work.
If you have a Jupiter star and you find this to be a familiar scenario, I challenge you to go ahead and start your own group and find the place of power for yourself. Don’t hook yourself to someone elses’ coattails. It won’t ever be satisfying enough and it can quickly spiral into something very negative. Sure, you’ll convince yourself that you’re right – you COULD do better than the person in charge, but it won’t be satisfying unless you are doing what you’re called to do — play big and live up to your abilities.
Other common pitfalls for those with the Jupiter star include helping others to acheive their place of prominence without helping yourself, or hiding out from your own power (indicated if that star is sitting on the side of your hand).
This is a fairly common gift marker for women who own their own businesses – showing them that they have all the power and vision that they need to bring their business out in a big way. When they choose to accept the vision and lead their company in bold ways, they’re opening to the possibility of being able to serve more and more clients. And yes, if you want a million dollars or more you’re going to need to get out of the penalty box and into your power. Otherwise you’ll be settling. So take a look at your hands. If you’re sporting a Jupiter star now you understand why you’ve been feeling so out of sorts when it comes to the groups you’re in. Take the next opportunity that fits with your vision to lead. See if you don’t start feeling more powerful and like a million bucks!
