Jupiter rules clothes that are average and ordinary.
Jupiter governs clothes that are average and ordinary, normal or commonplace. My interpretation of this is classic. Classic items like the t-shirt, the oxford shirt, the chino, the crew neck – that traditional “casual Friday” feel.
Jupiter’s colours are tones of yellow and gold, wearing these on a Thursday can help evoke his characteristics. Teamed with tidy denim and khakis, yellow can brighten up a casual outfit. You can accessories with a bright yellow scarf, bangles or a bag. Prints of colourful yellow flowers are a fun option. The shape of the ellipse or oval is ruled by Jupiter, finding Jewellery in this shape or indeed printed fabrics with this design can be a nod to Jupiter on a Thursday.
Jupiter’s gemstone is the yellow sapphire, set in gold and worn on the right index finger, however like all jyotish gems this should be prescribed by an experienced astrologer and made by a jyotish jeweller. Gemstones very much depend on your astrological birth chart.
Alternatively, yellow topaz can be worn and more affordably citrine or yellow zircon. These can also be worn as a necklace.
Ideally, to evoke the characteristics and energy of Jupiter and we would want to avoid dark colours on a Thursday and decisive colours like purple and red. This is because red signifies mars which is fiery and aggressive the opposite energetics to Jupiter. Black and dark colours are often associated with Saturn, which can represent loss and difficulties, also the opposite of Jupiter’s generous and optimistic nature. However, this is not a hard and fast rule, if you wanted to come across jovial yet responsible yellow and navy blue may be appropriate. Therefore, darker colours can be teamed with yellow depending on what you are doing and who you are meeting.
Overall the clothes that we wear are all dependent on our mood and personal style. After all, self-expression is an essential part of our well-being.
