Warning: this is a rant post about the unfairness of Jupiter zipping through Aries. Dam it! We waited 12 years for this! And we get a measly 6 months in our sign! Totally unfair!
Aries Jupiter/Sun Conjunction
On the day of the Spring Equinox, Jupiter was exactly conjunct my Aries Sun. I took it as a good omen for this New Year and my upcoming solar return.
I listened to Simon and Garfunkel’s Fifty Ninth Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy) which, for me, embodied the transit.
In astrology books, this transit is heralded as a most marvelous one. Supposedly, it brings some astonishing good events and luck.
Unfortunately, this is mostly hype and propaganda from some astrologer with a well-aspected sun.
If your sun has only hard aspects in your chart, those aspects are going to be activated by the Jupiter conjunction. Thus, the benefic blessings of Jupiter are mitigated.
Instead of instantaneous, fall on your lap luck, what you get is the strength to push hard for your luck.
As you can tell, I am one of those whose sun only has hard-aspects. In my opinion, having a first house Aries sun is a marginal compensation for the above fact.
Thus, my relationship with Jupiter is to be grateful that things do not get worse than they should during a particular transit.
Given my general experience with Jupiter transits, I was not expecting much of this one. Nonetheless, I wanted to enjoy this transit.
Riding the Jupiter/Sun Conjunction Experience
Happiness and optimism were my set intentions for the day. Up to March 20th, I had not experienced any jovial energy or seen any luck coming my way. And Jupiter was already halfway through Aries!
I wanted a one-day break from the pressures of Saturn opposing my sun. A transit I was much more aware of than the Jupiter one.
So far, I had been feeling depressed, sad, pessimistic about my future, frustrated by my circumstances, and bitter for what I had to show for my efforts.
On the day of the Spring Equinox, I could feel the Jupiter energy at work, independently of my intentions, pouring down on me.
All day long, I felt pretty groovy, with an unabashed sense of happiness, contentment, and self-confidence.
What did I get from this transit? I received a totally unexpected piece of good news.
A Jupiter/Sun conjunction is touted as the beginning of a new 12-year cycle that allows us to expand and enlarge our personal landscapes.
That’s what I have felt since then. I feel more optimistic and confident about my future, which, in turns, encourages me to pursue some shelved projects and feeling confident that, this time, they can be successful.
The conjunction happened in my first house. Since then, I have observed that people – readers, clients, and friends – started to notice my work and me. Nothing has changed. I still am who I am and my astrology work hasn’t changed. Their perception has shifted, at least that how I see it. I might be wrong. I am however being offered more opportunities.
To a new cycle!
Do you have Jupiter/Sun aspect in your chart? What did you experience when transiting Jupiter was conjunct your Sun?
If you are an Aries, you can also complain about the shortness of Jupiter’s stay in Aries. Thanks for sharing.
