Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries is a major planetary aspect occurring in late 2016 and for most of 2017. Exact dates – 26 December 2016, 2 March 2017, and 28 September 2017. Jupiter entered Libra in September last year and departs in October, spending more than a year in the sign of balance. The last time Jupiter transited Libra was from September 2004 to October 2005. Here are some astrologers interpretations of this transit.
Café Astrology – Jupiter’s effects are to expand our experiences, our knowledge, and our understanding. Jupiter represents optimism, growth, generosity, joy, and abundance. In Libra, Jupiter expands our awareness of our partnerships, the need to slip into the shoes of another, and our diplomacy skills. Jupiter in Libra encourages togetherness, equality, compromise, fairness, partnership, peace, harmony, and diplomacy. With Jupiter in Libra, we attract the best fortune when we are fair-minded, treat others as equals, are compromising without being “doormats”, are gracious, and use our talents for promoting and mediating.
Transiting Uranus acts to disrupt, change, and re-do whatever it touches. Uranus frees us from thinking inside the box, and offers us opportunities for reaching out and trying something completely new. Uranus speeds up our lives, offering us chances to take some risks and to experiment with totally new ways of living and interacting with others and our environment. Uranus is forward-looking and does not have patience with lifestyles or attitudes that are attached to the past or the traditional. Transiting Uranus shakes us up and offers us a chance to be more aware of our individuality. Uranus doesn’t accept stagnation nor does it accept restriction. Personal freedom is highlighted.
Uranus entered Aries on March 11th, 2011. The urge to start fresh, to break free from restrictive attitudes or circumstances, to totally redesign an area of our lives (or even our personalities), and to gain freedom through independence is strong with Uranus in Aries.
Transiting Jupiter opposite Uranus is a time when large-scale efforts and the best of intentions can suddenly change, go awry, be shot down, or get reborn. Not just for you, but for everyone around, so keep that in mind before putting all your eggs in one basket. It’s a time of discovery, not so much from new revelations but from uncovering what was wrong, popping the over-inflated balloon, spotting the phony. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is, and the profit goes to the one who finds it out first. The same can apply to your heart, where promising more than can be delivered is a distinct possibility, and its revelation can come as a shock. Use normal precautions and get confirmation before you go whole hog.
Astrology King (Jamie Partridge) – Transiting Jupiter opposite Uranus greatly increases your need for personal freedom and excitement. You will feel a strong urge to react, or rebel against anything that is stopping you from having fun and doing what you want.
The expansive nature of Jupiter, the shocking nature of Uranus, and the antagonistic nature of the opposition mean that there is likely to be particular sudden event that releases your built up tension and leads to a major change in circumstances. The more restricted you have felt, then the more upsetting the change is likely to be.
You can find adventure and personal growth through travel, education and new relationships while still maintaining certain core responsibilities in your life. You can find creative and ingenious ways to relieve the boredom without causing total chaos and disruption.
Though technically a challenging transit, the relief from stress and tension can be very satisfying. A change in beliefs or social interaction may be all it takes to act as a circuit breaker. At the deeper level you are seeking a burst of higher awareness, to transcend your daily routine and bring on a spiritual growth spurt.
Elsa Panizzon – This combination is freedom-loving. With the Aries/Libra axis involved, people will want space in relationships. You’d be wise to give it to them. You can also expect to see reversals in relationships and odd, unexpected alliances form.
Your philosophy or perspective (Jupiter) on love and money will probably change (Uranus) in this period. At the very least, you might experiment (Uranus) in this realm.
I’d also expect to see people who rarely have chances to partner, have opportunities pop up. Those who are used to a constant stream of potential lovers might experience the exact opposite. Again, it may very well be a bumpy ride, but overall, most people will benefit from this, especially if you have planets 16-29 degrees of the Cardinal signs.
Rafael VR – Prediction for Jupiter in Libra opposition Uranus in Aries: The condition for peace is strong yet it must favor prior the one leading the deal. Countries trying to find middle ground yet strong needs are put in front. New contracts for technology resources to foreign countries. Strong belief conviction and based events that affects or shocks globally in a fast way. Excessive wish of being special. Impatience with the opposition.
Rose Marcus – Jupiter is throwing its weight around in 2017. It is doing so mainly by extending/revitalizing the workings of the Uranus/Pluto transit that has been with us since 2011. Expect a continuation of the intense social trends, radical upheaval, political, social and weather extremes all over the planet. Jupiter in Libra in opposition to Uranus in Aries will increase relationship polarization or find you at odds or at war within yourself. Jupiter/Uranus spotlights competing needs, differing opinions or lifestyle choices, social alienation, issues regarding monogamy, personal freedom within relationships, etc. This combination can also see someone or something new overtake you or us. For those looking, a new relationship could be a radical departure from what you usually attract/find attractive or interesting. To be sure, fresh stimulus will be readily found. The year ahead will see many major breakups and breakthroughs.
Pandora Astrology – Jupiter’s move into Libra places him in square to Pluto, opposed Uranus and sextiled to Saturn. It seems Jupiter is busier than usual this year, blowing things out of proportion as he always does so well. Jupiter’s opposition to Uranus could lead to explosions—both figurative and literal. We’d best step away from any and all blast radiuses we may be near.
