Saturn Square or Opposite Jupiter
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Saturn square or opposite your natal Jupiter. Here the principle of conservatism is at odds with your need for expansion. You may have to scale back projects to fit the current realities of your financial situation. It is also possible that you may have the resources, but not enough time before an important deadline, so you scale back to meet the deadline. Conservative individuals may be opposed to your ideas or try to inhibit you in some way. At this time you should look for stability. On a spiritual level, this can be a time when your faith is tested.
