Jupiter Conjunct Uranus

Aspect of the week: perfecting April 20, 2024, Jupiter conjunct Uranus

There’s a lot of hype surrounding the upcoming Jupiter-Uranus conjunction. Do you believe it?

Yes, there are those individual charts this conjunction will plug into in just such a way that doors will open, opportunities will appear and beneficial expansion will take place in unexpected ways. 

But overall, and especially in mundane terms, this does not appear to me to be the astrological miracle some seem to be looking for. For starters, in the chart for the conjunction, ruler Venus is in Mars-ruled Aries in a close conjunction with Chiron. That, while the Sun is in a tight perfecting square with Pluto, along with other troubling factors.

Popular astrology often leaves out the fact that the specific expression of every transit, placement, eclipse, return, etc., is through the context of a whole chart. 

In any case, always remember that one person’s best day is another person’s worst. The same goes for businesses, countries, and all other entities and ventures with an inception date.

One message on the backside of this transit may be that more, bigger or newer is not always better.

New ways of feeding old appetites many emerge.

Take good care with what you hunger for.
