If you have Jupiter as your DaraKaraka, your marriage partner is philosophical with a set of ideals they choose to live by. They are devoted to their beliefs, whether religious, spiritual, or philosophical and their life is marked by needing to explore their beliefs deeply. Jupiter also represents the law, and even if your spouse is not religious they have “laws” that they uphold. For you, it’s important to have a spouse that you can discuss many branches of knowledge. In a partner, you look for virtue, intelligence, and shared values.
Jupiter is the natural Karaka for a husband in a woman’s chart, as Jupiter brings qualities of wisdom, joy, prosperity, and creativity. Whether you’re a man or a woman with Jupiter DaraKaraka, your spouse contributes humor, beliefs, and creativity to the marriage. Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and expansion. Many times this Darakaka gives a spouse who contributes wealth or expands your views on the world. (Always check aspects and dignity of Jupiter to better gauge this)!
With Jupiter as DaraKaraka, your spouse has Pisces or Sagittarius as their Sun, Moon, or ascendant, especially if Jupiter is in those signs in your chart. The key to a more accurate and detailed description of your spouse is to check the sign and bhava/house. Whatever bhava your Jupiter is placed in will be an important bhava in your spouse’s chart. Combine the Rasi sign and bhava with the qualities of Jupiter and you get a good idea of what your spouse will be like.
Consider the strength of Jupiter DaraKaraka in the Rasi, Saptamsa, and Navamsa
The level of joy, creativity, wisdom, money, etc that your spouse produces depends on the strength of your DaraKaraka. Check this in the Rasi chart as well as the D7 and D9 divisional charts. If your Jupiter has negative aspects or is in poor dignity then your spouse will have the less-desirable qualities of Jupiter. Negative traits of Jupiter include excessive/blind optimism and idealism, overspending, and overindulgence.
Planets conjunct Jupiter will also influence the personality of your spouse. If there are close conjunctions to Jupiter, your spouse will also have the characteristics represented by those other planets. For instance, if Jupiter is conjunct Saturn, it reduces your spouse’s optimism and creates a more frustrated personality. Remember that when looking at aspects, only consider aspects in the Rasi and apply them to the D7 and D9.
Overall, with Jupiter DaraKaraka you can expect an intelligent spouse who loves to learn and share their knowledge. They want to live a life with purpose and focus on subjects related to philosophy, creativity, spirituality. On the negative side, they can become preachy, mismanage their money, or suffer from issues related to overindulgence.
My Darakarka is Jupiter. My jupiter is in 10th house in Capricorn conjunct with moon and my ascendant is aries. In Navamsa my jupiter is in 11th house and I have virgo ascendant. Can you tell me how my spouse will be like personality wise and towards me and where I will meet him??
I also have venus in 9th as an aries ascendant Is that of any significance as to how my spouse will be?
Hi Charlize! Based on that information it sounds like a marriage based off mutual purpose. Jupiter DK gives the traits described in this post, but also having your 7th lord, Venus, in the 9th house (naturally ruled by Saggitarius and Jupiter) puts even more emphasis on a Jupitarian partner. Your spouse could be involved in politics, religion, teaching, or counseling. Harsh aspects to Venus or Jupiter or the 7th house can cause arguments or fears and insecurities that hurt the partnership. It sounds like your Jupiter is in Cancer in D9? If so, that’s excellent. More details like timing, etc, simply don’t have the time to go so in depth in comments. The most basic timing technique would be when your Jupiter DK goes into your 11th house in 2 years. Peace to you and thanks for visiting.
Thanks for the info!
In my D1 chart as an aries ascendant my jupiter is conjunct with moon in sign of capricorn while in 12th house of pisces the lord of capricorn saturn is sitting with ketu hence signs exchange. Venus is in 9th house in sag. Does this affect anything with my spouse relationship?
What do you mean by “marriage based off mutual purpose” is that bad? Will he love me? Yes jupiter is in cancer in D9.
Based on what you wrote:
When my DK jupiter goes in 11th house in 2 years is that when i will meet my spouse? Where will i meet him most likely?
Thank you for this lovely article…I was wondering if you could please help me decipher what my significant other would be like…their nature and looks etc…I have Jupiter DaraKaraka in 6th house aries…7th lord in 12th house(libra) and moon in my seventh house (Taurus) …I would be so grateful for your input My Saturn is aspecting my seventh house from the lagna 🙁 and also I’m scared that my Jupiter is in the 6th house which is considered the house of losses 🙁 please help me shed some light as to what this could mean? Thanks again..
Hi Lola, I’m glad you liked the article. Before I comment on the info you’ve provided, make sure you’ve used the calculations I use ( you can calculate your chart here: https://staroracles.com/chart-calculator/ ) There ARE techniques that give information on looks, nature, and social class of spouse, but that involves looking at different varga charts and spending a bit more time. For that I’d suggest an “Oracle Session” on my consultations page. As far as your fears go, there needs to be overlapping signs of difficulty, and then additional techniques to safely judge a marriage. Your Jupiter Darakaraka in the 6th is not nearly enough to point to a bad outcome. Hope that eases your mind a bit.

hi brooke, thanks for the wonderful article, Jup is my DK too and rules the 7th house and sits in the 12th. Also in NAV chart it occupies the 1st house. I am unable to find my partner and turned 30 this month. Any clues?
Hi, this is such an excellent article. Just a quick question, my darakaraka is jupiter. It is placed in my 1st house of leo along with sun and mercury. It is free from any aspects of other planets. I am a leo ascendant. Can u please tell me about my spouse? Thank you for your wonderful insights
Hi Suki, I’m glad you enjoyed the article. Darakaraka in a dharma house is a nice thing to have. In the 1st, I’ve seen this give mutual purpose with a spouse (both have similar goals and purpose) or the spouse helps you on your path. Being in the 1st can also give a spouse with Aries Sun, Moon, or Ascendant or a significant 1st house themselves. Being in Leo and conjunct the Sun can also give leo qualities. You can also read your birth chart as though your 7th house is the ascendant – read it as though it’s your partner’s chart for info about him or her.
Thankyou so much brooke. I appreciate your sincere response. Keep going. Looking for many more articles from you. All the best. Great work!!

Nice article Brooke. My DK is Jupiter sitting in pisces in 11th house at 0°59″. Seventh Lord Mars is also in 11th house but at 27°. In D9, Jupiter is exalted in 12th house with ketu and Mars in 8th house making vargottama in pisces. Could you please tell me how my wife is going to be? Is she going to be lucky for me?
Hi Ashish, DK in 11th and 7th in 11th are two indications that your spouse will be involved in 11th house matters. This could mean she is in the public eye, a humanitarian, has Aquarius as her Sun, Moon or Ascendant. My experience is connections between the 7th and 11th a person gains through their spouse. Please temper expectations because gains doesn’t mean “Partner will make you rich.” Mars as the 7th lord and conjunct your DK is affecting her personality as well. I can’t tell you how she is going to be because that requires chart analysis, but DK in good dignity gives above average fulfillment. Find Ernst Wilhelm’s youtube video on Darakaraka or “Venus is your woman” to learn more about adding and subtracting points through aspects.
Hi! I am scorpio sun and scorpio ascendant with a Libra Jupiter in my 12th house as my DK! Does that mean my spouse could be foreign? Or that he’d had a mixture of Pisces or Sagittarius in his chart with Libra qualities too? Also, is a 12th house DK a bad placement? Thank you xoxo
