When Jupiter and Uranus connect, our capacity for change and innovation enlarges.
In the Natal Chart
With Jupiter forming a square to Uranus in the birth chart, you gravitate toward activities and ideas that inspire and excite you. New and original ideas can be attractive, and you might frequently pin your hopes on new endeavors. You might watch for a tendency to enjoy shiny new things just because they’re different. Your ideas can be fabulous, but you may lose interest in them over time or if they’ve become routine.
Ideally, you have other indicators in your chart that help with follow-through and persistence, as this aspect if examined in isolation suggests some potential problems with attention span.
You may sometimes rebel against not only others’ plans, but your own best-laid plans.
You have great optimism about what you can take on, but it’s best to avoid taking on so much that you spread yourself too thin. Aim for self-discipline with projects and pursuits. Life is certainly more exciting when you don’t prepare, but it can cripple your chances of success if you don’t always do the groundwork.
Key Traits of Jupiter square Uranus. You will find some, many, or all of the following, depending on how strong this aspect is in the natal chart:
- Original ideas and perspective.
- Openness to new concepts.
- May lack follow-through and patience.
- Attracted to newness and uniqueness first and foremost.
- Sudden changes and events in the life that change your perspective.
- Rebelliousness that doesn’t always work in your favor, perhaps dues to a subconscious desire to stir things up and break routines.
- Favoring spontaneity over preparation.
- A true humanitarian and champion for individual freedom.
It’s a good idea to work hard at self-discipline and self-mastery. However, hold onto your admirable enthusiasm and progressive spirit. You’re not usually happy or content with the status quo.
You love to be a step ahead with your ideas, knowledge, or projects. You encourage positive change, and you’re all for some disruptions or stirring things up if it means change happens. Watch for restlessness that undercuts your happiness in the present.
Some keywords of this combination: freedom-loving, anarchist, revolutionary, idealist, free-spirited, futuristic, seer, visionary, wilful, rebellious.
When found in a child’s chart, there is certainly a spontaneous, restless, and eager streak in this child, and it’s wise to help them manage their impulses to jump into something new or to jump out of ventures if they quickly become weary of their novelty. Guardians may want to encourage the pioneering, forward-looking, enthusiastic side of this child, while helping them organize and discipline themselves.
Transit to Transit
With Jupiter forming a square to Uranus, we need to be willing to make changes in our lives now, or change is forced on us. This is a rebellious, restless influence–one in which we should avoid making changes just for the sake of making changes.
We might take risks (perhaps foolish ones) for the sake of freedom. This is not an ideal time for financial speculation or travel. We could also too easily avoid taking responsibility for things that truly matter.
However, we might open ourselves up to new ways of thinking. Changes of course can end up being interesting and useful detours.
It’s best not to jump too quickly into new ventures, as follow-through may not be easy. Impulsiveness can work if we’re in tune with our needs, but it can lead to mistakes if we’re not. We should atch for making decisions while in the “freedom at all costs” mindset.
- Tap into the desire to innovate, learn new things, and open your mind to unconventional ideas.
- Jump into too many new things if significant resources are on the line.
