"This mind gives you a sort of stupor. Burdened by the memories of the past, burdened by the projections of the future, you go on living -- at the minimum. You don't live at the maximum. Your flame remains very dim.
Once you start dropping thoughts, the dust that you have collected in the past, the flame arises -- clean, clear, alive, young. Your whole life becomes a flame, and a flame without any smoke. That is what awareness is."
-- Osho Zen Tarot. The 7th Card of the Major Arcana: Awareness.
Jupiter and Uranus form their perfect conjunction in the 1st degree of Aries today. Sometimes it's helpful to understand a transit as if you were interpreting it as a natal aspect in friend's chart. If you saw Jupiter and Uranus working together under the sign of Aries in a chart, you begin to get a flavor of the character of that conjunction as it would perhaps manifest in an individual.
It's helpful to know the houses that Jupiter and Uranus occupy in your own chart to arrive at a deeper understanding of where energy of this conjunction is conjuring in your life. What area is being brought into greater focus? If Jupiter is in your 10th House of career, this transit will alight a different part of your life than if your Jupiter is in your 4th House of home and family. Same goes with Uranus. Is a sort of cosmic re-booting happening in your relationships? Your worldly status? You can see on what house Aries is the cusp (that is where the conjunction is taking place) and also remind yourself where Jupiter and Uranus are natally. Remember that transits will always highlight the natal issues of those planets involved.
With Uranus and Jupiter in Aries, the idea is to set your intuition in motion and be willing to surprise yourself. We are in new territory. There are new possibilities for the way we live if we are willing to let go of the past. It is a day of initiation and a day to think boldly. And more than think, it is a day to intuit what may be waiting for you around the corner.
Jupiter likes to experience things on a grand scale and Uranus likes the unexpected. Where can we reach past our preconceived limitations to experience something that perhaps we haven't? Whether that is awakening your sensuality, reaffirming your thirst for the magical in your life or giving yourself permission to live on your personal edge - there is something about the great beyond that is beckoning to us and wanting us to walk the walk of our own personal truth.
Remember that Uranus doesn't like to follow the herd. If you kid yourself that you want experiences because others in your - age group, profession, social class, etc - want them, you may be in for a rude awakening. Don't get me wrong -- screwball Uranus conjunct avuncular Jupiter is spirited Aries is no doom and gloom transit. It is a highly celebratory energy and one which energized us to reach out and connect with the greater world. However, the way we choose to do so must reflect our own good sense even if all our moments preceding offer us no cushioning logic to proceed.
