When Jupiter transits natal Uranus the desire for growth and expansion influences how you express your individuality and need for freedom. Jupiter represents the aspiration to improve your life and grow into new experiences, so it can work well with the Uranus spirit of change and excitement.
When Jupiter transits Uranus it increases your desire for freedom in terms of the way you live and your personal expression. You’ll feel energised and ready for change. You want to be more creative and original, and will seek out ways to bring more excitement into your life. Your inventiveness will increase and you may make radical changes to your lifestyle. You could also achieve a major breakthrough in any area of you life.
Your sense of personal freedom will expand, and your perception will sharpen and become clearer. Your nervous system may feel wired and charged up, leading to feelings of excitability, and you may find it hard to sit still.
Jupiter expands the wilful and most eccentric side of your character during these transits, and you may want to take more risks or do something outrageous. Whether this is a problem depends on how your natal Uranus is aspected and how attuned you are to your individuality to begin with. If you need to break free and try something new, Jupiter will give you the optimism and energy to have a go. If you’re already quite wilful you might go too far at this time and get yourself into trouble if you’re not careful.
As always with Uranus, this is a time to expect the unexpected. There may be surprises and sudden opportunities. Jupiter will open your consciousness to all sorts of possibilities you might not normally consider. You might find a radical solution to a long-standing problem or start something you’ve always wanted to try. Your life could open up and your horizons expand through some sort of transformative event or lots of little things happen that build to a large impact.
Your mind will open and you’ll be attracted to new ideas that challenge you in a positive way. You could become more interested in subjects such as science and technology, or metaphysics and philosophy. You’ll grasp new ideas quickly and can learn faster now. There could also be a sudden windfall or change in financial circumstances that opens up your future in new ways.
The hard aspects (conjunction, square and opposition) are more likely to coincide with sudden events that may be upsetting or disruptive. But if you find yourself suddenly freed from an old restrictive way of life, it means that your deeper Self is ready for more freedom. These transits help to prevent you from getting stuck in a rut. If you’re willing to change and experiment with new possibilities, you’re less likely to feel put out when everything gets turned upside down.
Possibilities with Jupiter transiting Uranus:
- Sudden opportunities that completely change your life
- Getting back in touch with your lost youth
- Involvement in political or social activism
- Changing your plans for the future in a radical way
- A bolt from the blue change in fortune
- Ability to time actions to take advantage of opportunities
Watch out for:
- Extreme restlessness and nervousness
- Irresponsibility and self-centredness
- Impatience and irritability
- Negative suggestibility – doing the opposite of what others suggest
It’s impossible to predict exactly what will happen with these transits, but you’re likely to feel inspired and open to positive change. You may receive a lucky break through unexpected opportunities, but this depends on the efforts you’ve made in the past to build something real in your life. Luck doesn’t really come out of nowhere. It’s a combination of intuition, timing, and the awareness of a hidden pattern at work. These transits allow you to see that pattern, so make sure you take advantage of them when you can. You may have to let go of an old part of your life, but Jupiter is showing that you’ve already outgrown it.
