Q: I have read that from May through the Summer, "the powerful conjunction of Uranus and Jupiter [will occur]in early degrees of Aries". I have Uranus conjunct Jupiter in my natal chart - in Cancer 10th house - and believe this conjunction will be "in trine" to my natal placement. Can you enlighten me as to what this may signify? Born London, England, 16 September 1954 at exactly 07:00 (AM).
A: Yes, Jupiter (planet of luck, growth and adventure) and Uranus (unpredictable, chaotic, breakthroughs) are currently forming a conjunction in the early degrees of Aries. This lasts from June 7 – August 15. Generally this indicates a time of unexpected breakthroughs and opportunities, but a fair bit of surprising change too. It’s a global energy and affects each of us – people and countries – differently depending on what, if anything, is triggered in your personal birth chart. You have Jupiter and Uranus conjunct in the late degrees of Cancer, at 24 and 26 degrees.
For your personally, the current Jupiter/Uranus link triggers your 7th House of relationships. Expect the unexpected where love and romance are concerned. If you’ve been hoping to bring change into your love life, you might get more than you bargained for now. Make the most of the out-of-the-blue love energy that Jupiter and Uranus bring by being flexible and spontaneous when it comes to dealing with other people. Some astrologers use a general orb of about 8 degrees for aspects. I prefer the traditional way and simply focus on aspects that follow the sign relationships, that is that planets in fire signs trine each other, or planets in water signs trine each other.
In this case, when Jupiter and Uranus repeat their conjunction, but in Pisces in September this year, you will experience the trine then (but not now as planets in Fire don’t trine planets in Water). This shows you having a personal connection to current events, and indicates September as a time when falling your own path, especially around work and daily routine to be more important than confirming to others ideals of success. There is also another school of astro thought that indicates powerful cycles of growth and change whenever a planetary alignment you were born with repeats in the sky, regardless of sign or aspect. This shows mid year to be a time where you can create radical change for yourself, if you dare to break the mould of who you used to be.
