Sun 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, more likely with men.
Once integration is found, then the generosity, optimism, good cheer and prosperity become strong points and these people are often popular as a result. As with all Sun Jupiter aspects, the energy can often be best expressed through philosophy, religion, studies, and involvement in social causes.
