“Only one person in a million becomes
enlightened without a teacher's help.”
Jupiter governs our wisdom and growth. He has an expansive quality and is of a benevolent nature. In the Vedic tradition Jupiter is thought of as the teacher, and through his influence we can develop faith, hope, and confidence.
When Jupiter is weak there is a tendency towards pessimism and contraction. When Jupiter is strong, but malefic, one can be overly optimistic. Too much confidence may cause arrogance and over expansion.
However, there are many positive ways in which Jupiter's expansive nature may unfold in our lives. Wealth, travel and knowledge are all expressions of this planet. Jupiter also represents our children and, to a woman, her husband. Jupiter is a planet that often provides the right opportunities for learning and growth. This expansion can occur on both a material and spiritual levels.
On a physical level Jupiter governs our liver, spleen and pancreas and wearing a gemstone for Jupiter is beneficial for these parts of our bodies. Strengthening Jupiter improves overall vitality and balance.
Jupiter has an expansive energy. Wearing a gemstone for Jupiter will increase our potential for wealth, travel and learning. It also promotes feelings of optimism and hope.

Spiritually, Jupiter is associated with wisdom and higher learning. Jupiter is ethical and helps us to act in accordance with a higher guidance. Wearing a gemstone for Jupiter helps us to receive grace and connect with our inner wisdom.
Yellow, gold and orange emphasize Jupiter's energy.

As a ring, Jupiter gemstones are usually worn on the pointer finger. If having a ring on that finger does not feel comfortable you can use the ring finger which has a compatible energy. Since Jupiter is an expansive energy it is usually worn on the right hand.
Yellow sapphires should be set in gold. Substitute stones are more suitable when set in gold. However, because they are milder in their influence, and need to be quite large, silver is also used for substitute stones.
