Jupiter becomes weak in some signs and it is the weakest in Capricorn which is the sign of debilitation for Jupiter and is ruled by Saturn. It can also become weak by its placement in certain house of the horoscope or due to afflictions from one or more negative planets. Jupiter faces the worst affliction when it is present in Capricorn with a negative mars as Jupiter is already weak due to its placement in its sign of debilitation and Mars on the other hand, is exalted in Capricorn and so the affliction by Mars in this case becomes very strong. The afflictions from negative Rahu, Ketu and Saturn can also do significant damages to the general as well as specific significances ruled by Jupiter in a particular horoscope. A weak and badly afflicted Jupiter can make the native suffer from diseases like diabetes, becoming overweight or underweight as Jupiter primarily rules the fat tissue in the body, problems in the region of pancreas and gall bladder, hearing problems and diseases like jaundice among other diseases.
