Jupiter Conjunct Saturn
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Jupiter conjunct your natal Saturn. This is often a time of balancing liberal and conservative principles. It can be a good time for starting new business ventures and a time for investment and expansion in business, but often growth is slow and cautious. You may be more inclined to be practical now than you might usually be. New ideas come more easily now as some of your usual agnoia may be dispelled.
It is also possible that you might be feeling a burst of freedom from restriction and throw caution to the winds. Much depends upon how other planets are situated in the chart. A balance of perspectives usually works best with this transit. This is a good time for solitude and in fact you may be feeling more reclusive than usual. Use this time for quiet reflection, a visit to a monastery, or a holy place as this transit is especially auspicious for spiritual insight.
