Feeling hyped up? The clash of the two “astro titans” Jupiter and Uranus might be the reason why.
Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries is one of the most important transits of the decade – it only takes place once every 14 years! The transit is exact on the following dates:
- December 25th, 2016 – at 20° (Jupiter direct, Uranus retrograde)
- March 2nd, 2017 – at 22° (Jupiter retrograde, Uranus direct)
- September 27th, 2017 – at 27° (Jupiter direct, Uranus retrograde)
This is one of the most exciting transits you can experience and it will bring rapid changes and breakthroughs of all kinds.
Jupiter is the great benefactor, the king of all gods, Jupiter magnifies and inflates everything it touches.
Uranus is the rebel, the freedom-seeker, the reformer and the revolutionary.
Together, the two stand for the faith and the courage to break free from the old and reinvent the new.
Jupiter opposite Uranus is a very progressive aspect. Things are likely to happen in a BIG scale and impact our society as a whole.
In 1989 when we had the Jupiter Uranus oppposition on the Cancer Capricorn axis, the Berlin wall and the Communism collapsed and the Cold War was declared over. South Africa’s new prime minister F.W. de Klerk started to dismantle the apartheid regime. The successful Galileo spacecraft was launched in 1989, to be purposefully destroyed 14 years later, in 2003, exactly at the time of the next Jupiter Uranus opposition. No coincidences in astrology 😉
In 2003 when we had again a Jupiter Uranus opposition this time on the Virgo Pisces axis, the US space shuttle Colombia crashed, and the U.S. and Britain launched the war against Iraq.
If we look back in time when we had this transit we notice some common themes: profound changes in societal structures, taking a stand, restlessness, revolutions, techonological progress, scientific discoveries.
The current Jupiter Uranus opposition is on the Aries Libra axis, signifying a revolution in relationships and partnerships, as well as opportunities for those looking for new relationships and partnerships.
If you’re single, things can now move really speedily! Single or committed, Jupiter opposite Uranus is good news if if you’ve been feeling stuck in love or if you want to move your relationship to the next level.
However, let’s not forget that an opposition is an opposition and it will bring friction. Jupiter in Libra encourages you to cooperate with others in an optimistic and generous way. Uranus in Aries wants you to be free and “Do it your way” – Uranus is NOT that interested in pleasing others.
As a result, you can feel a conflict between your desire to fit in and be a team player, and your desire to express our unique self.
If your everyday reality does not allow you to express yourself, if what you’re doing for a living bores you, right now you can feel compelled to take a stand and radically change your life. During this transit you will feel an urge to improve yourself, to evolve, to upgrade your reality.
But be careful – because your energy levels are very high right now you can be more impulsive than usual.
Like with any Uranus transit, changes will come, and the best way to prepare for Uranus is not to prepare at all. When you are ready to accept an outcome, any outcome, when you allow the unexpected to happen, this is when you realize the full potential of every moment.
The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom – William Blake
To find out how the Jupiter Uranus opposition will affect you personally, note the houses where the oppposition falls in your natal chart, as well as any aspect Jupiter or Uranus applies to your personal planets or angles.
If you have planets around 20-29° in Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) – especially Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Mars, the Ascendant, the Midheaven, or if your natal Jupiter makes an aspect with your natal Uranus you will especially be in the focus.
