On April 11th, 2023 Sun is conjunct Jupiter at 21° Aries.
Sun-Jupiter conjunctions are very sought after, because Jupiter is the “great benefic” in astrology.
Why is Jupiter the “great benefic”? Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. It’s the planet of coherence – Jupiter is what everyone agrees on. When we have a Jupiter transit, things make sense. There’s a sense of flow and unity.
When the Sun (our identity) is conjunct Jupiter, – who we are as individuals, and our life purpose starts to make sense to us.
Sun Conjunct Jupiter – Move(s) Like Jagger
Sun conjunct Jupiter makes me think of the “Moves Like Jagger” – a Maroon 5 song about Mick Jagger (the frontman of Rolling Stones); Jagger happens to have a Sun-Jupiter conjunction in his natal chart.
Mick Jagger is not referenced by chance. He does move well. He’s a natural.
His distinctive dance moves have become iconic, and an important part of the band’s live performances for decades. Many fans consider Jagger’s dancing to be a key part of the Rolling Stones’ appeal.
Similarly, we “move like Jagger” when we’re in tune with ourselves. When we act naturally, other people relax and start dancing with us. When we’re in tune with ourselves, we’re in tune with the world.
Sun conjunct Jupiter is in a way the opposite of the Sun-Chiron transit we had a few days ago. Sun conjunct Chiron’s role is to point to our duality, where we feel conflicted and at cross purposes:
“There are all these things about myself I find difficult to reconcile. I’m open minded but I’m also very conservative. I want freedom but I also value loyalty and predictability. I want to move overseas but I don’t want to leave my family behind” – that’s Chiron.
Jupiter instead focuses on what’s consistent:
“I’ve always loved singing. Perhaps it’s time to do something about it”.
Sun conjunct Jupiter will help us gain a sudden clarity about who we are and what our purpose in life is.
Sun Conjunct Jupiter – Connect With Your Inner Aries
The Sun-Jupiter conjunction happens in Aries – the first sign of the zodiac.
Aries is the spark of life – is what makes things come into existence. When we connect with our Aries energy, we’re fully present. We are in touch with ourselves.
We naturally know when to act, and when not to act. We just ‘know’ whether the opportunity that presents itself it’s good for us or not. We don’t feel obliged to say yes to things that don’t make sense to us.
The opposite of Aries energy is being indecisive and second guessing everything – which is the result of being disconnected from our gut instinct and intuition.
EXAMPLE: You hear a song for the first time. When you’re connected to your Aries energy, you just know whether you like it or not. Your body will tell you: you start humming. You start moving.
When you’re not connected to your Aries energy, you look for other clues to decide whether you like the song or not: how popular the artist is; whether other people like it; what music critics have to say about the song. Or you start ‘liking’ just because you heard it 20 times on the radio and you got used to it.
When we’re not connected to our Aries energy we don’t know who we are. When we don’t know who we are, we miss opportunities, or make choices that are not necessarily a good fit for us.
Symptoms of being disconnected from your Aries energy are: procrastination, self-sabotage, a vague sense of dissatisfaction, worrying about what other people think of you, not knowing what to do with your life.
If your life is not what you’d like it to be, that’s perhaps because you don’t know who you are.
Thankfully, the Sun-Jupiter conjunction in Aries will help you connect with the Aries energy (that we all have in our chart) – so you can gain clarity about who you are, what you want, and what you should do next.
Everyone will benefit from this energy. Even if (in fact, especially if) you’re not attuned to your Aries gut instinct, pay attention to any thoughts, feelings, events that arise when Sun is conjunct Jupiter.
When Sun is conjunct Jupiter in Aries, ask yourself:
- What’s non-negotiable about who I am? What is consistent about my passions and interests?
- What comes naturally to me? Who I enjoy being? What I enjoy doing?
- Knowing who I am, what should I do next? What’s the natural, obvious next step?
