In Vedic Astrology, Jupiter, an auspicious planet, is known as ‘Brihaspati.’ It is also characterized as ‘Guru‘ or ‘Dev Guru’- the one who guides the Devtas – Gods. Besides, Brihaspati is also addressed as Bachaspati (master of speech or Lord of language, fluency, and wiseness). According to Hindu Scriptures, Brihaspati is the son of Anga-rasa(Anga denotes the physical body whereas “rasa” denotes the fluid in the body).
