Jupiter Square or Opposite Jupiter
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Jupiter square or opposite your natal Jupiter. This represents a time of testing of your understanding of the world. You will often run into situations that if you think about them deeply enough, run at cross purposes with your philosophy or religious convictions. This is a time when you can re-adjust your thinking and expand your understanding of the world if you are willing to let go of dogma. If you are at all dogmatic, then this time will pass and about 3 years from now you will be faced with a more abrupt change as the world will be much more at odds with your thinking.
This is a time when you should be more careful with your investments if you have any. There will often be a tendency toward waste and you are less likely to use good judgement. Most people's perspectives are a bit warped at this time. It is best to put off important decisions until another time if possible, or seek advice.
If Jupiter has the times for spirit (reputation and actions), it indicates an increase in ambition and desire to get ahead. When it has the times for fortune, it may be an indication of going overboard in overindulgence. If Jupiter happens to rule the 6th or 8th houses, any negative changes in health will usually be related to the liver or kidneys or the thighs. This is not overly negative, but if Jupiter happens to be angular and other planets are involved in the configuration such as Mars by day or Saturn by night, it will tend to amplify the problems.
If natal Jupiter is lord of your first house, this can be a time of increased popularity. Physically you may gain weight particularly if Jupiter happens to have the times for fortune.
If lord of the 2nd, you should be careful of overexpendature, especially in regards to partners, especially if Jupiter has the times in regard to the lot of fortune.
If lord of the 3rd, this is an excellent time for going to school and learning, especially subjects that are unorthodox because this is the place of the goddess of the Moon. You may have problems with neighbors or relatives and boundary issues when Jupiter has the times for spirit.
If lord of the 4th, this can be a time of disturbance within the home. You may move to more spacious surroundings, but may have flaws. When Jupiter is lord of the times in regard to spirit, it indicates lack of oversight in regard to these matters.
If lord of the 5th, this is often a time of increased expendature. Children may come into your life, sometimes unexpectedly. Be careful about investments and beware financial advice particularly if Jupiter has the times for spirit.
If lord of the 6th, your relationships with co-workers may be strained if Jupiter has the times for spirit. If it has the times for fortune, one should be careful not to overindulge, avoid injury to thighs, liver or kidneys.
If lord of the 7th, relationships with others with foreigners are more likely, but be careful that you see others as they really are, not as you want them to be. It indicates disputes with foreigners when spirit has the times indicating that cultural differences may be too great to oversome.
If lord of the 8th, not a good time to ask for a loan. Signifies a time when others feel overextended. If Jupiter has lordship over the times for fortune it may indicate that a desired settlement is not reached in an inheritance claim or an estate.
If lord of the 9th, a time of spiritual revival, seeking the meaning of life, good for philosophy and orthodox religion, but perspective may be hard to maintain, particularly when Jupiter has the times for spirit.
If lord of the 10th, career advancement is possible, but with danger. Superiors see your worth to the company in a favorable light, but be careful not to over-value yourself. If Jupiter has the times for spirit, and fortune happens to be angular then it can indicate victory after resistance. Be careful that your superiors do not see you as a threat to their own position.
If lord of the 11th, often a time when social surroundings change or your role within groups changes. When Jupiter has the times for fortune, it can indicate overexpendature and the need to cut back. When it has the times for spirit, this is an indication of taking on too much responsibility and of plans that are too grandiose.
If lord of the 12th, you may be called upon for charitable favors and service. Be careful of a tendency towards self delusion. When Jupiter has the times for spirit, it indicates the potential to be taken advantage of.
