Jupiter and Uranus make their final exact opposition today, offering up the final installment in a cycle which began during the last month of 2016. As I wrote of the opposition back then, “While Jupiter in Libra reaches toward the middle-ground, Uranus in Aries points toward extremes. Revolutionary Uranus in Aries wants none of the compromise and concord that Jupiter in Libra advocates for. Uranus interferes with Jupiter’s pacing, turning plans for steady growth into rapid and unstable mutations. Furthermore, Jupiter in Libra’s movement toward equilibrium is tested by the moments of sudden volatility Uranus brings. It could be said that this opposition calls for balance, but it would be more accurate to say that it calls for a comfortable oscillation between balance and imbalance.
One of the areas that the Jupiter-Uranus opposition will be felt most keenly is in the area of deal-making. While Jupiter in Libra pushes to establish mutually agreed upon rules of exchange, Uranus in Aries will have a difficult time sticking with one contract or another. The deals that result, personally, professionally, diplomatically and economically, are likely to only cohere through a series of surprises, and to be of an unusual character themselves.”
While Jupiter and Uranus play tug of war, a half-Moon rises at dusk, ushering us into the busy second quarter of the lunar month. You may need to shift into a higher gear to keep up.Astrology of Sep 23rd – Oct 2nd
