Brihaspati (Devanagari: बृहस्पति) is the
name of the Vedic deity and planetary, personification of piety and
religion, the chief offerer of prayers and sacrifices, represented as
the Purohita (Priest) of the gods with whom he intercedes for men. He

In Jyotish (Hindu astrology), Brihaspati
is the name for the planet Jupiter, which is one of the Nava Graha
(cosmic influencers) or planets. It is also known as Guru, Cura and
Devaguru. Brihaspati is considered to be the greatest benefic of any
of the planets. Guru rules over the signs Dhanu (Sagittarius) and
