Jupiter opposes Uranus: expansion versus unpredictability



Jupiter is opposing Uranus at this time and this major transit will be exact on March 2. The energy has been with us all winter but it will reach a peak at this time, and in the days after March 2. It will repeat a third time in September.

This is actually part of a larger transit, a t-square, that involves Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto.


When Jupiter opposes Uranus we can expect the unexpected. While Uranus rules things that are unique, it also rules aircraft, revolts and coups, explosions, the electronic media, rebellions, lightening, weather and a host of other things. Typically when astrologers see Uranus we think revolts, freedom, change, explosions and unexpected events that are sometimes shocking.


Astrologer Nicholas Champion writes, "it combines aspiration and effort and as such relates to the possibilities of progress and furthering the evolution of man. It encourages perception of deeper potentialities, poses questions, opens up possibilities.'


He states, "This seems to be both one of the key cycles of the free-market economy, and as such Barbualt considers it one of the predominately capitalist oriented cycles. In a society in crisis it can cause highly volatile situations to erupt without warning and an atmosphere of acute tension. In this state it has a particularly war-mongering potential."


Jupiter is in Libra and Jupiter rules governments, laws and legal situations, foreigners, travel, money and finance, and in Libra it deals with relationships. While romantic relationships can be affected and change, it concerns all kinds of relationships including the kind governments have with each other, or even the kind of relationships we have with neighbors or co-workers or boss. Relationships of all types can become changeable at this time, good or bad.


We can expect to see changes in government and major push back. As Jupiter is retrograde situations may be changed, reconsidered or delayed. This can of course include travel and foreign individuals, but is not limited to this either in the world or our personal lives.


As Jupiter rules money we could see changes in finance or the stock market. While the market is at record highs at the time of this post, now that Jupiter is retrograde this could change. Venus is the other financial planet and it retrogrades on March 4. That puts a focus this spring on money and finance. Jupiter-Uranus is basically a gamblers transit. 
Things are less likely to work out f you take a gamble with the financial planets retrograde but that does not mean impossible. Things can go up or down without warning.


The Jupiter-Uranus opposition meets up with Mars as it conjuncts Uranus and opposes Jupiter on February 26, along with the solar eclipse in Pisces. This increases the energy of this transit and we will see major events occurring in our lives and the world. This will also 'set off' the Jupiter-Uranus opposition.


This transit demands freedom and many people will want to be free on many different levels. This is a time to expand our horizons and look at new possibilities. Many people will not want to be tied down and feel extremely restless.


Events can involve foreign people, accidents, young men, governments, laws, relationships, and explosive situations. Aircraft, weather or the internet could even be involved.


 In your own life things may get blown out of proportion, change can occur suddenly (Uranus) and some people may act in an egotistical or selfish manner. This is not the time to issue ultimatums or bring up on controversial subjects. The combination of Mars and Uranus works quickly and is surprising in nature. This combination can change things quickly, especially with the solar eclipse in Pisces.


By March 6, Jupiter will begin to retrograde away from Uranus and this transit will slowly lose energy. It will peak again at 27 degrees of Libra-Aries in late September.
