Jupiter is the natural or generic planet that represents the spouse in a woman’s birth chart. But, does Jupiter as the husband work if you are gay or lesbian?

Masculine & Feminine Energy Balance

Does Jupiter as the Husband Work if You're Gay or Lesbian?In every relationship, there is one person who is predominately the masculine energy and one person who is mostly feminine energy. This is true whether you are gay, lesbian, or straight. There has to be a polarity to create attraction.

However, the great majority of my clients are straight so I haven’t done enough gay couple charts to be able to say with certainty that the same principles apply regarding Jupiter (and Venus as the wife for a man).

If you are the feminine-energy person, Jupiter could be the natural ruler of the husband for you. If you are the masculine energy partner, then Venus could be the natural indicator of wife for you. But like I said above, I don’t know for sure.

Jupiter & Venus As the Spouse-Producer (DK) Planets

However, your Spouse-Producer planet, the Darakaraka (DK), could be Jupiter, even if you are the masculine energy person. In that case, your feminine energy partner will have a Jupitarian personality and outlook on life.

If you are a woman, your DK could be Venus, or the other feminine energy planet, the Moon. This means your partner will be interested in the significations of Venus or the Moon and exhibit some qualities of the feminine.


For instance, Venus is my DK, and the Moon rules the 7th house of the partner in my birth chart.

My first husband was a Cancer Sun and Jupiter person (Cancer is ruled by the Moon), and his Atmakaraka was Venus. My current husband’s Atmakaraka is Saturn but influenced (aspected) by Venus. His ascendant ruler, Jupiter, is with the Moon.

They are both quite masculine men, but also have “feminine” qualities. My first husband liked to sew and crochet (he was an advanced martial artist, so I was quite surprised he owned a sewing machine).

My current husband doesn’t mind doing the dishes (thank God!) or grocery shopping, and he is interested in the arts such as the visual arts, movies, plays, music., etc (Venus things).

So, as you can see, there are different ways the spouse can manifest astrologically in your life.

The Darakaraka is the SPECIFIC Planet for the Spouse

The DK is the specific planet for your spouse, and that planet has the most say in what your partner is like, more than Jupiter or Venus alone (unless they are the DK planet, of course).

These are the partner factors in your birth chart:

  • Planets with and aspecting the DK
  • The 7th house of the spouse, the planet that rules it, and planets with the ruler
  • In the Navamsa (D9), the 7th sign & planets from the Atmakaraka

As you can see, several factors determine and describe the spouse in your birth chart, whether you are gay, lesbian, or straight!


To get a thorough evaluation of your partner, their personality, looks, quirks, relationship style, even the types of jobs or careers they have, the Ready-for-Love Consultation covers all of this. We also look at:

  • How you are in a relationship
  • If you are in a love period
  • Whether you get a better experience in marriage
  • Or a better love experience in long-term, non-legal relationships.

If you’re already in a relationship, we look at your compatibility and your partner’s relationship capacity as well. This can be for a past relationship (what I call a relationship autopsy) to help you heal or a possible future relationship.
