Sun Opposite Jupiter 8 April 2017

Sun Opposite Jupiter TransitSun opposite Jupiter in the natal chart brings out the extremes of Jupiter in the life and personality. There may be an internal struggle to control Jupiter’s expansive nature which can show as an inflated ego, over exuberance, and excesses in pleasure-seeking.

Ups and down in life are possible in relation to wealth, happiness and relationships. During these growing pains it may be difficult to remain happy and content. You may feel unfulfilled and even unlucky.

Once integration is found, then the generosity, optimism, good cheer and prosperity become strong points. Popularity and even fame can result. As with all Sun Jupiter aspects, the energy can often be best expressed through philosophy, religion and spirituality, travel, studies, and involvement in social causes.

Doris Day (0°42′) expressed the best of Jupiter on the screen with a pleasing and light sense of romantic comedy. In her personal life though, this aspect played out as a series of unfortunate relationships with men that often involved financial losses.

William Butler Yeats (1°27′) was a writer and poet who won a Nobel Prize for Literature. Over time he simplified his writings yet his own philosophy developed in complexity. He was also an amateur astrologer with an interest in mysticism.

Others include Zac Efron 0°16′, Anne Summers 0°42′, Ian Richardson 1°01′, Sting 1°18′, George Melly 1°38′, Steve Earle 2°10′, Bob Geldof 2°40′, Bill Cosby 2°46′.

Sun Opposite Jupiter Transit

Transiting Sun opposite Jupiter brings opportunities for success, good fortune and increased happiness. Everything can seem to fall in place without too much effort, leading you to believe you are on a lucky steak or gifted in some way. If you let any good fortune go to your head then this transit can result in loss, embarrassment and a lowering of self-esteem.

If you are the shy and conservative type, then you are more likely to be grateful for any wins and share the spoils. This transit would then indicate reward for previous good deeds or service to others, leading to and increase in your self-confidence.

However, if you already have a tendency toward greed and boastfulness, having trouble with self-control, then this transit is more likely to see you going to excess and wasting any good fortune. A loss of ego could be seen as punishment for previous acts of greed which left others without. This transit would then force you to examine your own behavior and motives, giving the opportunity for personal and spiritual growth.

This interpretation for Sun opposite Jupiter transit can also be read for a Solar Eclipse and New Moon opposite Jupiter.

  1. I really enjoy how you describe aspects and the examples you use to portray them. Doris Day, Yeats… Fresh :)!

  2. Hi-can you tell me a bit about natal Jupiter retrograde (taurus 20′ 2nd) opposition to natal sun (Scorpio 25′ 8th)?

    • I personally have Jupiter opposing my Sun natally (Sun in Taurus, Jupiter in Sag) and for me part of what I’ve noticed is an inflated ego or desire to be larger than life, to have really big goals and to live at the top of the world by having a really expansive, exciting life with travel, exploring distant horizons both physically and internally.

      Basically I’d say jupiter inflates the identity and ego so you want to see yourself as having some type of adventurous, important life filled with meaning. I also have this opposition on the 2nd to 8th houses. Might mean a push and pull between your own resources and self worth (2nd house) and the resources of others. Also your Sun in Scorpio would be even more interested in hidden depths and what lies behind the scene of things.

      Jupiter in Taurus in 2nd probably wants to live lavishly, comfortably, securely and there may be some play between the steady security oriented nature of taurus and the desire of jupiter to take chances.

      Wondering too if being a Scorpio sun who may not want limelight is confusing with Jupiter wanting to have some kind of large ambition or expansive, exuberant, larger than life personality?

      • I don’t use houses or signs so I would be looking to any fixed star conjunctions for additional information.

  3. You could add Sting 44′ to your list of celebrities for this one. I heard him with Peter Gabriel last night – singing together and singing each other’s songs – lovely – and interesting chart comparison there.

  4. I have this natally and really relate to the pleasure-seeking part. I often feel high and dry when it comes to pleasure. I have an idea of what would please me but feel like it is always unattainable. This is a really hard aspect to balance and to be able to find a middle ground is beyond me because of how limited the outside world is when it comes to gratifying my desires. Always wanting something I can’t have makes me feel like I have a big ego because I cant just be satisfied with what I do have. I have a large appetite for a life that isn’t meant to be for me. It’s a pretend make-believe life in my head that I visit often. People never see me clearly and often think I’m this whole other person that I’m not. I wonder if that would come from this aspect as well…
