Venus conjunction Jupiter in Aries 2nd March 2023

Venus is conjunction Jupiter at 12 degrees 9 minutes Aries at 5.37 am GMT 2nd March 2023.

Impulsively going for what you want with little or no consideration for the risk involved could be seen as foolhardy. However, if that risk pays off, what you gain will be all yours and you won’t have to share it with anyone. Investments made at this time have to be made quickly where the only judgement you can rely on is your own. At social gatherings you will have to be bold or brave enough to come out of your shell if you usually avoid being the centre of attention. The bigger the presence you have the more people will be attracted to you, whether as a friend, ally or an amorous interest.

Mercury in Aquarius sextile Jupiter in Aries 18th February 2023

Mercury at 9 degrees 29 minutes Aquarius is sextile Jupiter at 9 degrees 29 minutes Aries at 2.14 am GMT 18th February 2023.

Keep an open mind to all the options and opportunities within your grasp, and take the first steps to put yourself in the position where you can get the most out of them. Don’t follow in the footsteps of your predecessors; have the courage to be pioneering instead. Just because no one else is doing what you do doesn’t mean that it’s not a good idea. If you want support from those who are supportive of your plans, then do what you can to persuade them to back you; even if from their perspective it’s a gamble. A unique take on what you think can be improved upon for the future; especially in investment and development has the best chance of gaining their attention.

Sun in Aquarius sextile Jupiter in Aries 25th January 2023

The Sun at 4 degrees 48 minutes is sextile Jupiter at 4 degrees 48 minutes Aries at 1.31 am GMT 25th January 2023.

Going along with your own drumbeat and showing off your unique traits can open up new opportunities that are more suited to you than anyone else. If you want to gain attention for your knowledge and experience, do it on your own terms in your own way. Those in a position of authority or who have a wealth of resources to hand will be looking for alternative and innovative projects to take a chance on. Looking to technological developments for the future is very much the focus at the moment. It will become clear it’s not an option to stay stuck in the past.

Venus in Aquarius sextile Jupiter in Aries 4th January 2023

Venus at 1 degree 37 minutes Aquarius is sextile Jupiter at 1 degree 37 minutes Aries at 9.09 am GMT 4th January 2023.

If you want to meet up with your friends just to have some fun, this moment is a good one to pick. There may not be any particular schedule to stick to, but there could be a few pleasant surprises in store. In financial and legal matters, not following the herd and instead choosing your own unique route should work out as the best option for you. Long distance travel to unusual locations or places where you will have the freedom to do as you please will strongly appeal. Interaction at social events with people you wouldn’t normally encounter can be interesting and enjoyable.

Mercury in Libra opposition retrograde Jupiter in Aries 12th October 2022

Mercury at 1 degree 41 minutes Libra is opposition retrograde Jupiter 1 degree 41 minutes Aries at 7.25 am GMT 8.25 am BST 12th October 2022.

Taking into account all the positive points and the negative points if a big decision has to be made could be a great undertaking. This has the possibility of being so overwhelming that there are too many options to consider, so nothing is done. Reducing these options causes at least a slight amount of anxiety about making a choice that suits most people instead of being the best choice overall. Pompous and arrogant people could have their comeuppance, if they meet those who are able to use charm and intelligence against those who oppose them. Not the best transit for those who are self-righteous, because their judgement could be out of balance and what they believe to be true isn’t entirely accurate.

Venus at 3 degrees 2 minutes Libra is opposition retrograde Jupiter at 3 degrees 2 minutes Aries at 6.13 pm GMT 7.13 pm BST 1st October 2022.

Options to overindulge or splash the cash in the spur of the moment are held back. A craving for more of what you want but don’t need is certainly present, but it will be unwise to go along with it. Hold back on excessive spending for now if you’re lucky enough to have the finances to do it. Luxuries that are obtained now are likely to be regretted later. Those who want to climb the social ladder by exhibiting people pleasing behaviour to as many individuals as possible, who are successful or wealthy won’t go as planned.

Sun in Libra opposition retrograde Jupiter in Aries 26th September 2022

The Sun at 3 degrees 42 minutes Libra is opposition retrograde Jupiter at 3 degrees 42 minutes Aries at 7.34 pm GMT 8.34 pm BST 26th September 2022.

Temptation to impulsively surrender to the allure of luxuries and expensive food is restrained by your better judgement. This won’t be fun but you won’t be overwhelmed with misery either. The fear of missing out will be there but in retrospect there won’t be a justification for it. Overextending yourself in where you want to go and what you want to do could be fuelled by a search for an overall balance of experiences. Don’t be afraid to say no if you need to and have the courage to delegate to others if they will be of great assistance.

Mars in Gemini sextile retrograde Jupiter in Aries 1st September 2022

Mars at 6 degrees 49 minutes Gemini is sextile retrograde Jupiter at 6 degrees 49 minutes Aries at 11.53 am GMT 12.53 pm BST 1st September 2022.

Acting quickly without thinking too much about what you’re going to do would be a recipe for disaster, if it didn’t happen during a transit as benevolent as this one. Immediately pouncing on opportunities that were previously missed may bring rewards that are better the second time around. Those who have plenty of wealth are reluctant to donate any of it to those who shout the loudest. Instead, they will use their own judgement to offer their assistance to who or what sparks their interest, as long as they are repaid in one form or another. Dispersing your energy on a variety of outlets expands the use of various abilities that you have, which also make your life more interesting.

Sun in Leo trine retrograde Jupiter in Aries 31st July 2022

The Sun at 8 degrees 42 minutes Leo is trine retrograde Jupiter at 8 degrees 42 minutes Aries at 10.37 pm GMT 11.37 pm BST 31st July 2022.

Sound and quick judgements made with confidence should present beneficial results, which also give a reason for optimism and faith that good things can come to you. Self-belief is enhanced and your strong points will have a light shined upon them. If dumb luck crosses your path don’t be too proud to take advantage of it. Pushing past your comfort zones is less likely to intimidate you right now. Being bold and brave without overwhelming yourself with what you’re willing to take on, will provide positive experiences that personally will have a big impact on you without pushing you too hard.

Mars in Aries square retrograde Pluto in Capricorn 2nd July 2022

Dramatic and destructive action taken by those who are traditionally in a position of power and control will be fought against by those who are fired up to commence battle with the old order. The former may find they are not as strong as they thought they would be in the face of those who resist their domination, so they will have to dig deep to find what resources are available to them. Generally there is a surge of energy that is difficult to direct towards a route where it can’t cause damage in one way or another. It may be necessary to relinquish control to allow a process of regeneration to take place. This can be immensely stressful but could be needed to avoid huge challenges that you would otherwise be battling for a long time. Also there is an increase of explosive anger; either from yourself or from people or during events around you. It’s definitely not the time to make enemies as they can be incredibly aggressive and possibly obsessive in getting their revenge.
