Sun square Jupiter
Sun square Jupiter and Sun opposition Jupiter
Although their intentions are generally good, people with challenging aspects between the Sun and Jupiter are given to overdoing things. They can easily gloss over realistic details and get themselves into debt, overindulge in pleasures such as food and drink, and promise more than they can deliver.
For the most part, they find help for their excesses. Somebody’s there to bail them out, as plenty of people believe that their hearts are in the right place. Generally, this is the case, but if excessive behavior becomes a pattern, and the natives continually face light consequences, there is the danger that they will not learn from their mistakes and abuse the “system”, relying on their friends and family to help them out a little too often. Their reputation for being good people, thus, can eventually be used to further their purposes.
However, many people with this aspect don’t fall into the trap of losing their sincerity. They are generous, helpful, and charitable. Still, the tendency to live beyond their means is a real possibility that many struggle with much of their lives.
Another thing to watch for is depression. Sun-Jupiter people tend to go through periods of intense highs when they are excessively optimistic. These periods are so marked that they seem to be unnatural and a fall seems to be inevitable. They can make promises they intend to keep, but have a problem with follow-through. At times, self-control can be a real challenge.
Usually quite knowledgeable and generous with their time, these people have many talents that they may take for granted. Fortunately, the motivation to improve is likely to strike.

Note: The square, semi-square, sesquiquadrate, and opposition are also called “hard”, “challenging”, or “inharmonious” aspects.
Sun in hard aspect to Jupiter: Part of your soul purpose is to promote growth and expansion, whether material, intellectual, or spiritual. You are impelled to be involved in large enterprises that have broad social consequences and influence many people, and you need a rather large arena in which to make the impact you wish.
You dream BIG dreams and generally possess the self confidence to promote yourself and your ideas on a wide scale. Your willingness to take risks and to branch out into areas you have yet to explore, along with your ability to project into the future and to see the big picture, all add to your capacity to come to prominence and succeed in life in a big way.
However, just as unchecked growth and over-development can lead to undesirable consequences for, say, the natural environment, so too can your own urge for “more” or “bigger” have harmful effects. When out of balance, you are prone to exaggerate, to be ostentatious and pretentious, to be overly optimistic and promise things that you can not reasonably do, and to be seemingly unable to limit or restrict yourself in a realistic way.
The ego-gratifications you get from being a “big-wig” may become a primary motivation rather than simply an offshoot of your accomplishments. You may be unwilling to pay your dues, too quick to try a shortcut (moral or otherwise) in your eagerness to gain your aspirations.
You may also have enjoyed “favored child” status in your household growing up, and thus expect things to come easily to you. Generally they do, but relying too much on this kind of luck can lead to errors of judgment on your part, not to mention major disappointments. On a physical level, over consumption could lead to overweight and/or problems with your liver.
At your finest, though, you have a generous heart, a positive spirit, and the desire to live for something bigger than yourself. Using these gifts, you can contribute much good to the world as well as your own spiritual refinement. The qualities of hope and joy are also yours to transmit to the world. — Interpretation from the Karmic Insight report.
Sun square Jupiter: You have big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. You tend to exaggerate, to promise more than is possible, and to misjudge through being overly optimistic. However, you never lose your hopes for the future. Restlessness and discontent with responsibilities and limitations in life can be troublesome for you. — Interpretation from the Merlin Report.
Sun square Jupiter: You tend to be stubborn and unable to make solid career choices. You get carried away and go off in directions contrary to your actual needs. Your judgment in vocational matters is often off, sending you on a wild goose chase. In addition, there is possible difficulty with authorities and the law and/or differences with older people. To use an old adage, you can (at times) be your own worst enemy. The advice of a trusted friend regarding career is to be recommended. — Interpretation from Zet Software.
Sun square Jupiter: (The Pompous) Your eye is very much on the “donut” and not on the “hole.” You are a citizen of the world and an eager learner, so benefit by extensive travel. Others are excited by your dynamic presence and what you have to say, unless you spoil your image by exaggerating reality or monopolize center stage to hear your own voice. Then, those great gulps of life you devour can distend your ego as well as your waistline and result in chronic social indigestion. — Interpretation from the Spirit Success report.
