Sun Square or Opposite Jupiter
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Sun square or opposite your natal Jupiter. This is a time when your perspective of your abilities is likely to be warped. You probably have unrealistic expectations of your abilities and are prone to think that you are more powerful than you really are. Financially, this is often a time of waste and extravagance. There is the tendency now to overlook the negative and believe (with or without merit) that things will work out ok in the long run. Just make sure that you don't overdo it! The main principle you should follow now is "moderation in everything". If you feel oppressed, you are likely to go overboard and become impertinent. You may assume a status that is above your true standing which will appear arrogant, self righteous and domineering to others. You are likely to encounter alot of opposition if you allow this to happen. If you are able to maintain proper perspective, then this should be a time of advancement and professional success. The question is will you be satisfied?
If Jupiter is lord of your first house, you are likely to go overboard in trying to make an impression upon others. You may have success in reaching your goals but create enemies along the way.
If lord of your second house, an opportunity for investment may present itself. Try not to be foolish with investments. However, you may lack restraint in spending.
If lord of the 3rd, try not to exaggerate issues that affect you or those who surround you. Relatives may have a tendency to overstep their boundaries.
If lord of the 4th, this is a good time to expand your home or move to more spacious surroundings. Your father may be more happy than usual, and relationships with your parents should be improved. Be cautious regarding investment in real estate.
If lord of the 5th, romantic relationships and investments should be approached with caution. Relationships with children may be problematic. Sudden turns of luck and reversals are common.
If lord of the 6th, issues related to work and health are highlighted. Avoid excessive alcohol intake and gluttony. Work related ethics or boundaries may be overstepped by management or superiors.
If lord of the 7th, partnerships, especially related to business may be highlighted. The spotlight may be on your marriage partner if married. There may be problems with the balance of power in your relationships with others.
If lord of the 8th, in rare instances, this can indicate benefits through the death of others (important people). It can however also indicate slackness in ambition or lack of focus.
If lord of the 9th, legal power struggles may be indicated, but it is possible to come out ahead in such an arrangement. Propoganda and efforts at hegemony surround you. Everyone seems to have strong opinions.
If lord of the 10th, this can be an excellent time for professional advancement provided you do not push too hard to get you own way now. If you are normally more reticent, others may try to overstep your authority.
If lord of the 11th, your are more likely to come into contact with those who can advance your professional aims now, but others may be preoccupied with their own agendas. Don't try too hard to get the attention of others.
If lord of the 12th, try to take a vacation now or get some rest. You may feel restless or uneasy about some unfinished business, but now is not the time to try to settle matters.
