It takes about 12 years to carry out a complete rotation of the zodiac and therefore in each of them there remains about a year. Who was Jupiter in ancient times? Protector of ancient Rome, he blessed the warriors but also had the power to punish them, he knew how to dose praise and punishment with extreme skill. Jupiter is the Greek equivalent of the Greek god Zeus.
