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. 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.
