Jupiter Conjunct Uranus at Aries Point ~ June 8, 2010

Finally! Since last month while still in Pisces, Jupiter and Uranus have been side by side with only a few degrees away from each other. On June 8 at 7:27 a.m. EST, Jupiter and Uranus perfect their conjunction at Aries Point in the enterprising sign of Aries. It's a rare celestial event that will not be duplicated again in the near future. The influence of their conjunction (cohesion/alliance) have a long term impact on each of us personally as well as collectively, as a nation and globally.

On a personal level, intensity and depth of influence depend upon how their conjunction touches our individual birth charts. Early born cardinal signs, early-degree cardinal ascendants or those with natal planets in early degrees of cardinal signs, especially Aries on all counts, may experience this conjunction greater and be influenced longer than most. We all, however, can make use and benefit from what Jupiter and Uranus have to offer with their blending of energies in Aries.

This Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Aries officially kicks off the major celestial events coming up between June and August, where their conjunction is joined by oppositions and squares forming Grand Crosses and T-squares aspect patterns (and some forming in cardinal energies) between other players like Saturn (structure/reality); Pluto (transformation/power); Lunar and Solar Eclipses in Capricorn and Cancer, respectively (endings & beginnings); and Mars (action/motivation). These successive big bursts of celestial energy shifting, moving, expanding, contracting may occur this year, but their impact continue for months/years to come.

As I've written on previous posts:

Jupiter represents good luck, joy, expansion, opportunities, higher education, and personal growth through our interests, experience and spirituality. He also governs publishing, travel, foreigners and exposure to other cultures. At best, Jupiter brings a wealth of knowledge, understanding, growth, opportunities, as well as financial gains. At worst, overindulgent, excessive, wasteful and unable to get past "dreaming" of the possibilities.

Uranus is the awakener, the mover and shaker of the zodiac. His goal is change/improvement for the masses at any cost, even at the cost of chaos or a revolution. Uranus represents humanitarianism, unconventionality, unpredictability, indifference, freedom, technological advancements, and loyalty to its cause. Uranus' energy is radical, disruptive, rebellious and innovative.

Aries is the trailblazer of the zodiac. Aries energy is bold, individualistic, independent, enterprising and can be impulsive, pushy, abrasive, and bossy. It's an impatient energy that needs to constantly be in a dynamic state -- gotta be moving, gotta be doing, gotta be making things happen. Aries represents the self, the ego, our volition, our potential.

What kind of benefits their coming together and collaboration offer us, individually, depends on where Jupiter and Uranus falls on our birth charts. Look to the Aries-ruled house cusp on your birth chart to get an idea of which area of your life their conjunction might be expressed/experienced. Check both natal and solar for a more comprehensive analysis.

For me, as a Cancer-Sun, Aries governs my solar 10th house of professional pursuits and aspirations; and as a Virgo-rising, the conjunction between Jupiter and Uranus falls in my natal 7th house of partnerships. The next few months are especially ideal to get things moving with issues regarding career since that is my focus right now. In the longer term, their conjunction's influence may give a renewal to my 7th house, may it be through a business partnership or intimate relationship or both :)

The last time Jupiter and Uranus were conjunct in Aries at Aries Point was January 24/25, 1928. I wasn't born then :) but I did learn history in school. The months/years that immediately followed were difficult days, to the say the VERY least. But they were also years of great technological advancements and scientific discoveries especially in aviation, medicine and physics. This Jupiter-Uranus conjunction, along with the cardinal climax occurring between June and August, will no doubt have a global impact for years to come as well as affect each of us in a personal way.

Those celebrating a birthday on or around June 8 are in for an exciting year! Unsure if you have natal planets or house angles within zero degree of cardinal signs? Cast your own birth chart -- birth date, time, and place required.
