Do you have a Jupiter star in your hand?

A Jupiter Star is a gift marker indicating leadership and high achievement, according to Richard Unger, the man who first identified this gift marker and 16 others.

Are you the power behind someone else's throne?
Are you the power behind someone else's throne?

Sometimes one sees multiple Jupiter stars, or 8 pointed varieties.
These, according to Richard Unger, indicate the capacity to be a leader of leaders.

Only a few percent of people have this marker and even fewer have multiple stars.
If you have a Jupiter star it’s a big deal.

As with all star formations ask yourself:
What lines make up the star?
Are any points missing? If so, which?
What quadrant of the Jupiter mount is the star positioned in? This indicates what type of leadership.

The shadow side of the Jupiter star appears when these qualities are not fully owned and occupied.

The danger?
You’re built to take a leading role but instead of finding your own throne and sitting on it, you help someone else by playing second fiddle.
You take a supporting role in someone else’s mission.
The problem is, often this other mission is not your mission nor your purpose.
Then you’re in danger of losing the spark in your eyes.
You’re succeeding at the task but it doesn’t feel satisfying.

Jupiter star on a sunny day:
you have found your own particular throne and are sitting on it.
– the project resonates with and is driven by your purpose and passion.

Shadow scenarios:
• A constant feeling that one is underachieving, even when this is not the case.
• Attempting to be the power behind someone else’s
throne: president’s wife syndrome.
• Bringing out one’s ambition through another.
• Power plays or giving away one’s power.
• Trying to control the person who is in charge.
• Diminishing oneself to please others.

If you recognise any of these scenarios, don’t feel shamed.
You can’t have the light without the dark, and the dark serves the light
to add contrast and show you what you have.
Instead focus on the sunny side – the magnificence of what you have –
a powerful gift that’s begging you to own and fully inhabit it.

You’ll notice as with any marker, there isn’t just light and dark.
There are two shadow poles.
One is too much of a quality and the other is too little of it.
In this case, power.

This is what Richard Unger calls the “Goldilocks principle” :
too much, too little, just right.

Action steps you can take right now?

Be gentle on yourself when you err in either direction.
And keep making small corrections. Like an aircraft going from A to B.
90% of the time the aircraft is off course but through small constant
adjustments it reaches its target anyway.

In last week’s advanced threading call with Richard Unger we discussed this marker and its shadow side in relationships. We also discussed this marker during our first threading call earlier this year on knowing what you want.

In the hand we discussed during last week’s call, this marker was on a man’s hand
(see image below.)

These days this gift marker is found far more frequently on women’s hands than on men’s. Richard says this never used to be the case when he first started reading hands over 40 years ago.

I find this fascinating.
Why? Is it an indicator of the new spirit sweeping our planet? humanity re-owning its feminine power?

When I work with clients who have this marker in their hands I give them a picture of Imperia. The formidable statue by artist Peter Lenk that stands on the end of the jetty in Konstanz, Germany.
She’s magnificent albeit highly controversial. Full of positive female power, holding in one hand the pope and in the other the kaiser, both wearing crowns. Two little old naked dissatisfied men. They’re in stark contrast to her happy spirit and lythe female vibrancy.

Why do I give them this image?
It’s a good reminder to own and embrace this inner friend. Both the positive and the negative sides of her.

Jupiter star one of 17 Gift markers
If you have a Jupiter star, Imperia is both an inner friend and an inner enemy. Acknowledge her and give her space to reign.

You’d like to know more about this marker?

Why listen to what other people have to say about this gift marker?
Why not listen directly to what Richard says?

    It’s a pointed dot with 8 lines from it.. but I have been struggling so far… nothing good… my dob is 28/12/1986 .. will anything better happen to me?….

      HI Balaji, if it is below the heart line it isn’t a Jupiter star but something else depending on where it is.
      Trust that this is a supportive universe. Look for how it is trying to help you.
      Good luck.

    Hello, greetings from Melbourne Australia, I thought I had what looks like a star in the middle of my left palm, like 2 triangles, a little misaligned, but a star none the less,all the other examples I see are lots of criss crossed lines, more like asterisks. Thank you so much for your guidance, cheers! Deb ( Cookie x)

    I have a big star sign on the Mount of Jupiter in my left palm. Its exactly where my Heart line ends. There is also, what they call, a Ring of Solomon (i.e. Below my index finger) on the same palm. What does it indicate?

  14. Maria Reply

    Hi Jena

    I seem to have a multiple star just on the outside edge of Mount Jupiter on my left palm, i.e. I have to turn that palm 45 degrees to see it properly (by contrast, if I keep my palm flat, I can only see half the star). Is the star still relevant to Mount Jupiter in that particular position? In the centre of the mount itself, I have a quite large cross (that’s true for both hands).

    Hi Jena,
    I have one big star in a square on Jupiter and three other stars linked to each other. I have the salomon ring also. One among the sister life lines cuts my life and headline and joins the big star on Jupiter (which is the one in the square), but two other short lines (one sister life line + another coming from my head line) join the end of the big star’s branch in a curved way which form an island divided into two (at least it looks like an island divided by the sister life line)… I was just wondering if that meant anything? What do these indicate? Many thanks for your time!

    I liked your article 🙂
    Jena i have two asterisk at the end of my heart line on both of my hands. And i also have a asterisk straight below my middle finger on my right hand which meets with my fate line but its not that much clear. Furthermore, I have a clear straight line just below the ring finger slightly above my heart line and parallel line on my pinky but above heart line. However, i heard that having asterisk at the end of heart line is dangerous. Anyways, i am struggling with my study’s and my visa got rejected. I am going on hard times and sometimes i feel to die. I think my greatest pitfalls of my life is my laziness and i feel really sleepy during morning. 🙁

      Hi Shabnam
      Be gentle on yourself and give yourself a chance. It’s hard to say what any marker means without actually seeing the hand.
      Probably you have a hand full of talent markers.

    Hi Jena! I really like how you wrote your article about the Jupiter Stars. I have a string of 3 on one hand! I’m looking forward to participating in Richard’s classes this year. While I’ve heard his teachings before, I’m guessing he’ll have many new jewels. I do also like hearing other teachers, and students, talk about gift markings because of the infinite number of stories describing how the gift markings reveal themselves in life. Thanks again for being an incredible facilitator of the insightful and accurate practice of hand analysis. Kay

    (today i was randomly given the information that i have two interconnected stars below my pointer finger on the left hand)

    also. because it is of interest to me.
    i have been given information over and over again (different methods, same message) that i am some kind of leader.

    but, any time that i have ever behaved with any kind of power/knowing, i have been met with great opposition (even vicious)

    how can one be a leader if all opportunities are dashed?
    the job is given and then taken. people see to prefer me in a non leading light.

    I have two crosses in the mount of Jupiter. Please let me know what that means?? i have heard cross signs are good in the mount of Jupiter..

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply

      HI Lash,
      No marker in itself is good or bad. It’s just information about yourself you can use (good) or ignore (bad). Crosses depend on what lines they are made up of. For example, (this is hypothetical, I haven’t seen what lines your cross is made of) it could be an ambition line + D Fork (a line flowing off your heart line saying you can’t say no.) In this case the D fork impacts on the ambition line. Meaning someone with this marker does things that may not be in their own best interests at work.

    • Jena Griffiths Post authorReply


      Usually only the free standing stars count as gift markers. Or under Middle finger above heartline if it is on the “fate line” (Saturn line)
      Lower down on this line, it might have been an event in the past or one you imagine in future.

  47. Chris Reply

    Dear Jenna,
    My heart line is forming a trident, with lines ending on saturn mount, start of jupiter mount and center of jupiter mount. Yes, it’s a pretty big trident.

    The third branch, ending on the center of jupiter mount, ends with a star. And very thin lines are getting formed around that star. The shape looks like that of a star inside a square. And that entire geometry is so clear and exact, that it seems someone has actually made it using proper tools.

    I strongly believe in “karmic theory”, and try to do good karmas always. Nothing satisfactory in my life yet. Can I expect improvements?

I used to have a cross right next to it placed exactly on the mount, but now I see that the cross is changing into another star accompanied by another tiny one. It is like having 3 stars starting from the edge of the mount.

    I have been studying my hands & astrology for many years now probly since I was around 10-12 years old is when I began delving into it & even other areas of the occult but for the most part have steered clear of the negative side of it other than to be aware of it & it’s aspects. I have had a difficult life pretty much since the time I was in 3rd grade I am usually ostracized by most people especially authority figures who seem to take an instant dislike to me, with some exceptions being those who really hold me in high regard. Usally there is not much of an in between I get either love or hate lol, it can be hard to deal with. I also have instant karma & I mean instant, if I do anything wrong I answer for it right away. I just being near others tend to bring out unresolved issues people are hiding or holding back too which is also difficult to deal with. My birth chart is one of the craziest I have ever seen, I am packed into 1 corner of the zodiac with no element of earth at all & the majority of my planets reside in endings, I am also a Libra/Scorpio which is like really being at war inside at times. I draw connections between astrology & palmistry because they go hand & hand (pun intended lol). Anyway I am right handed primarily & have a star on both Jupiter mounts. My left hand has a 8 pointed star inside a pyramid almost in the center of the mount & on my right hand I have a star inside a pyramid with a crescent scar just beneath it. The scar has been there since I was around 10 years old. I have recently had multiple 4 pointed stars appearing on my finger tips which were not there before, which is what prompted me to look back at some palm reading.
