Jupiter Opposite Saturn Natal and Transit

Jupiter Opposite SaturnJupiter opposite Saturn natal creates an inner tension that makes you very charismatic and diplomatic. However, many ups and downs in life can leave you feeling secretly insecure. The cause of these good and bad effects is the internal conflict between your enthusiasm and your more cautious nature.

Sometimes you experience growth spurts with good luck, frantic activity and success. At other times you face severe tests and challenges with misfortune that leaves you idle and depressed. You may end up not knowing whether to advance or retreat, or not knowing whether you are coming or going. This might lead to hesitation, indecision, and procrastination. Alternating between go and stop, or fast and slow, can result in intermittent progress. It could even have manifested physically in your speech as a stutter for a while when you were a child.

If you are mostly enthusiastic and happy you will need to learn self-discipline. Otherwise, you may become reckless, waste your energy and resources, and fail to reach your goals. If you are overly cautious and serious you will need to loosen up and take more risks. Otherwise, you could miss out on many opportunities for growth, happiness, and success.

With self-awareness of this dynamic, you will channel the inner tension into great achievements. Combine your strengths of patience, enthusiasm, personal charisma and constancy of purpose. Education, discipline, self-confidence, cross-training and relatively high moral standards will lead to lasting success and security.

Jupiter Opposite Saturn Transit

Jupiter opposite Saturn transit limits your opportunities for growth. You may feel you are moving sideways due to finances, especially if you have overextended recently. Restrictions now would make you feel restless and impatient. You need patience now but it is probably in short supply. If you have recently undergone rapid growth or expansion then this will be a period of readjustment. Time to make sure you are heading in the right direction. If you have strayed off your soul’s path then events will happen now to put you back on track.

Other people may hold you back now at work. If so, you need to build your case so they cannot say no. Any laziness or sloppy thinking will be pointed out to you. Starting new projects is not such a good idea now. Better to make your current situation more stable and secure first. If you were too over-optimistic then you may experience disappointment but the reasons will be clear.

Personal relationships may be strained now as it can feel like others are holding you back. If your independence or freedom is threatened you may end a relationship and be better off for it. Perhaps too much recent growth necessitates a cooling-off period. Such a reality check may not be fun but will be useful.

73 thoughts on “Jupiter Opposite Saturn Natal and Transit

  1. I have gone to a heliocentric ephemeris and found on April 30 8 deg 41 Aries, Jupiter 18 deg 37 Aries and Uranus 0 deg 58 Aries. Saturn at 14 deg 44 Libra.
    What I’ve picked up on is Jamies article about Uranus square Pluto, November 2013 because I saw the pattern developing.
    Now I am going through this with using my intellect the best I can but the conflict we are seeing seems to be able to go either towards the better or to deteriorate into something not so good.
    As I read and learn I will continue to do the things I know work for betterment- prayer, meditation and spreading joy and good will.
    This site gets more appreciated every day.

  2. what does the Saturn opposition Jupiter mean for me. I am a Sagittarius.

  3. “Now I am going through this with using my intellect the best I can but the conflict we are seeing seems to be able to go either towards the better or to deteriorate into something not so good.”

    I can concur with this – while the balance between Saturn and Jupiter is being stoked up by so many other influences at this time, the balance itself is open to interpretation – all energies are available to be worked with, their messages seen as useful markers and indicators for adjustment to the optimum course of action, or no action – the balanced POV remains open to and connected with the whole

    I have checked on this dynamic outside of astrology as well – I work with different types of divination, each roughly corresponding to a ‘direction’ and ‘culture’ – got a call to ask the East using the I Ching – I asked for an overview and the symbols presented were (h3) ‘Difficulty’ transforming to (h42) ‘Increase’ – the images attached to the first is ‘Water above, Thunder below’ (h3) – the celestial contained within and held back by the mundane – when operating in the midst of danger, to nurture the celestial one should not act at random, timing is key and holding back becomes protective so that things find their appropriate place within (this reminds me of Saturn acting with/containing the Jupiterian energy) – it is an image of holding to the beneficial within difficult circumstances, by employing stillness (Saturn) as the basis for hightened awareness in anticipation of action (Jupiter) – we know the storm is brewing but the rain has not yet begun to fall

    the moving line that produces the transformation is the top line – the end of difficulty, knowing it is time to act, finding difficulty in acting and knowing one is small in the face of the great challenge – it is an image that contains suffering and seeming impotence, but, the latter, the recognition of our smallness in the face of great difficulties, leads to the impulse to gather together and from this comes ‘increase’…….

    ‘increase’ (Jupiter) (h42) – thunder carried on the wind – the wind is the people entering into action, our smallness becoming a great movement containing the celestial energy – thus the small becomes great and achieves the great thing – this is the image of increase – the gust before the sweet rain

    it means we can, by diligent use of our energies, right mind and knowing the time for action when it arrives, increase the influence of the fructifying energies of Life without them being conditioned by the mundane – before is danger, during is protection and waiting, after is expansion of the beneficial – so, preserving those energies is key, timing is everything, but, the way can open for increasing the influence of the medicine if we first hold to the center with spirit

    interestingly Jupiter and Saturn are represented in Chinese astrology by two Dragons, yellow earth dragon and white wood dragon respectively, so the earth dragon (Saturn), being central amongst the five elements, is grounding the influence, pulling everything inwards, and the wood dragon is the conductor that feeds the energy into new growth forms and patterns (Jupiter) – while Saturn holds back Jupiter, Jupiter transforms Saturn

    thought I’d share this for another view – as said its all open to interpretation and we can also read a negative or positive picture into it, but, I was struck by the correspondences – hope its of interest

      • rob- your writing is of interests..When you speak of stillness-Saturn and Jupiter as the active… Saturn as the contracting, Jupiter as the expansive.. What I understand is the Divine dance of Shiva and Shakti. But they are not separate entities. They are aspects of the One Reality. When that One moves that becomes Shakti. The ancient cultures describe this and the planets and there is an amazing synchronicity in what they observed… some of that ancient wisdom will do “modern” people a lot of good in being in touch with those elements that foster life and understanding ourselves.

        When you say “first hold to the center with spirit”- spirit is enthusiasm/faith? that inner quiet space that holds each of us together?

        All energies are certainly available to be worked with– in astrology the reference is to influences/ sensing, vibrational, sometimes even able to smell something / this is a more subtle level of life not gross or physical. Not being aware of these a person may suddenly feel like doing this or going there but not understand why. And maybe not thinking about what they are about to do before doing it.. Self-control is certainly something to be achieved but there is nothing like a spontaneous movement in tune with the forces prevalent in the moment.
        Being in the moment, feeling and sensing the “vibes” acting and living in accordance with this.. this seems to be the best way to go..Harmony..
        Thanks for this.
        One other thought comes.. Uranus square Pluto or Jupiter opp Saturn could mean difficult days ONLY because of the way our lives and societies are presently organized.. if we were living in Harmony with the Earth and the Universe these influences would represent something quite different. Keep the faith.

    • rob- this deserves a more thought out response which hopefully will come tomorrow. For this moment initially.. the intellect is that part of our inner psychic instrument which we use to decide, decipher, choose right from wrong etc. That energies are open and flowing so true as I am able to channel Reiki energy.
      The biggest thing I ever could share with any one is that the Divine exist within each and every one of us.. and She in the human body is called Kundalini. Way past by bedtime. Keep the faith.

  4. Beverly – Jupiter is also known as the Azure dragon of the East and is associated with Sagittarius!

    • Cool. Sag should have a good time with this opposition, especially birthdates between 3-13 Dec.

  5. What does this March 28th opposition mean for Leos? I have a Mediation Meeting with my co-workers on Monday, and I’m scared. We’ve all been bickering since August, 2010, and now it is coming to a head. What should I expect on Monday?

    • Hi Emily, this opposition should not have much effect on your Sun in Leo, only the minor quinxunx aspect involved. But if you were born between 3 – 10 August it would be causing tension. The quincunx from Saturn to your Sun in this case would cause a buildup in tension which would be very unsettling.

  6. on a lighter note – in the office where I work we have 2 printers: one designated ‘SATURN’ the other ‘JUPITER’ (I had no influence in the naming).
    On 28 March Saturn refused to function; it just flashed up stern instruction to ‘call for service’, leaving Jupiter triumphantly spewing forth paper whilst it dwelt in stillness. It always makes me laugh when astrology plays out in the detail of daily life!

  7. My son has Jupiter Conjunction Saturn, but here there are no references to this important aspect…
