Some obsessions can have a long shelf life! This has certainly been the case in my relationship with the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction, that exciting, educational and unpredictable planetary combination in which revolution and innovation join forces with restless exploration and the quest for knowledge. Maybe having my horoscope’s Ascendant on the Jupiter/Uranus midpoint has something to do with it….

My astrological career began during the 1983 Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Sagittarius. Almost from the outset, I became utterly captivated by astrological symbolism. Captivated by its ability to reveal the relationship between that tiny, vital spark of an ordinary human life and those bigger pictures of family, nation, culture – onward and outward to the shifts and changes of the wider global community, both in current times and in tracking the long pulse beat of historical change.

Planetary cycles rapidly became a source of enduring fascination for me. From the epoch-defining 500 year Neptune/Pluto cycle to the tiny monthly cycle of the Sun/Moon, I realised that they all followed the same basic stages: seeding, germinating, sprouting, flowering, ripening, harvesting, dying back in preparation for the new.

As I became more practised and experienced as an astrologer, my understanding both of the larger currents of world affairs and the tiny rhythms of my own and my clients’ lives was greatly deepened and enriched by the application of planetary cycles.  Realising the profound weave which exists between the symbolic and practical manifestations of every kind of life on Earth, I was awestruck.

The great and small cycles of the planets describe ‘a time to be born and a time to die’, a wonderfully vivid example being provided by the most recently completed Uranus/Neptune 170 year cycle. Its beginning in 1818 saw the birth of Karl Marx; its dying in the late 1980s/early 1990s saw the demise of the whole communist system which Marx’s writing had inspired.

Jupiter conjunct Uranus 1997/8

The Jupiter/Uranus cycle lasts for 14 years. I noted with growing excitement during 1996 that there was a Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Aquarius coming up in February 1997. This was my chance to observe planetary symbolism in action in both individual and collective life. So I did!

Jupiter Meets Uranus”,  my study of  the 1997/8 conjunction in Aquarius, is the result. First published in 2009 by the American Federation of Astrologers, this 2014 ebook reprint is available now as a free download for anyone interested in astrological research. Just click HERE to find out how to obtain it.

As Armand Diaz, Ph.D, put it in a recent review on the Astrology News Service’s website:

Jupiter Meets Uranus’ is a great introduction to how astrology works at the individual and social level. Readers without any knowledge of astrology may want to skip past a paragraph or two here and there, but Whitaker’s style is engaging and her explanations are always clear. By taking a relatively small slice of the astrological pie and examining it in detail, she makes it possible for non-astrologers to understand how astrologers think – a valuable insight for anyone wanting to know more about this ancient discipline’s workings in the contemporary world….’

Jupiter conjunct Uranus 2010/11

However, time rolled on, the 2009 print edition of ‘Jupiter Meets Uranus’  sold out, and in no time, the 2010/11 Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Aries and Pisces was upon us. My obsession returned, much to the alarm of my husband, family, friends and students who had endured the 1997/8 period with stoical patience. 

During 2010/11, I wrote an extensive series of articles on this latest Jupiter/Uranus conjunction  in Aries and Pisces both from a global and an individual perspective, in the process conducting another research project.

This time I followed the turbulent, exciting and challenging experiences of ten volunteers from around the world. My gallant band were kind enough to offer their life stories throughout the whole year of the conjunction. I called their accounts ‘Tales from the Wild Ride’

This updated blog part, “Jupiter Meets Uranus: tales from the wild ride” takes you into everything I wrote during the 2010/11 conjunction in Aries and Pisces. When you get there, you will meet Giorgio (28) Maria (32) Harry (41) Eve (51)Alicia (53) Kathy (54)  Caroline (58) Louis (60) Fiona (61) Barbara (81) – not their real names – with their vivid, lively, moving and startling feedback from an exceptional year both in their lives and the life of our world.

You can also read the range of articles I wrote on both world affairs and personal  lives, with readers of the articles adding their own comments and discussion which contributes a colourful layer of experience and opinion to my efforts. Here are a few of their public comments (you will find more in the “Feedback 2010/11” Page in the header of this site):

‘I have just started reading through your articles and the different links. I have to say your work is amazing just as amazing as the daily news which corresponds almost exactly with everything for 2010 that you’ve written about!’

Marty 25.5.2010

‘Oh my God what a day! I can barely take it! Thank goodness for your site!’

Marty 11.6.2010’

‘Anne, this is a great idea to collect tales of Jupiter/Uranus influences, and I thank you muchly for the link!’

Jude Cowell (Stars over Washington)11.6.2010

‘Another great article, Anne. It’s so helpful for us to have this information in one place, and to be able to see and analyze the many faces of this amazing conjunction.’

Dawn Bodrogi ( The Inner Wheel) 16.7.2010

‘…. am finding this ‘as it happens’ feedback very useful and I am grateful to your volunteers – there are strong mirrors out there! Very reassuring….So fascinating, what an inspiring piece of work you have brought into the world here!’

Rob 7.8.2010


And finally…

 “Jupiter Uranus and the Purple People of planet Zog”  is a good starting point to set a context both for reading the ebook version of “Jupiter Meets Uranus” and for reading through the articles on this updated blog. It presents my summer 2009 interview with the American Federation of Astrologers: a wide-ranging introduction to Jupiter/Uranus aspects, their historical context, the research I did during 1997/8,  and my speculations regarding what the 2010/11 conjunction might bring.

Reading through those speculations again as the turmoil of the 2012-15 Uranus/Pluto square scours our world, is quite interesting. Here I quote from that 2009 interview: “Misuse of technology by angry, militant fanatics convinced they have God on their side and that the old order must be overturned, is a picture which arises from this…”

I hope you enjoy this in-depth exploration of the historical, mundane and personal impact of the unique planetary combination that is Jupiter and Uranus! I’d love to hear from you with your comments: do email me at   info@anne-whitaker.com

  1. Glad you’ve set this up for your excellent book, Anne!

  2. Very happy to see your write up on the conjunction of Jupiter & Uranus Anne!

  3. Dear Anne,

    I just read your article on Jupiter/Uranus and that you have an interest in “cloning”.

    I am hoping that this conjuncture will “reveal” my Genetic Quest to my paternal ancestor. MY brother (I am female) did his Y-DNA test for me (females do not carry male Y Chromosome. There is much to my quest, but, I feel that this conjunct will totally “open” many doors for me that are only partly open now. I have only one significant Aries Point, my Saturn is 27 Taurus and my Pluto is 4 Leo and my AP is 28-29 Gemini. Since Uranus rules my eighth house and the natural ruler Pluto, rules the sperm/egg and DNA, I am hoping for a “break though. I enjoyed yor article very much.

    Thank you.

  4. I’m looking forward so much to buying your book! I’m sure it’s excellent! 🙂 I’m very much interested in astrology and these Jupiter-Uranus conjunctions excite me pretty much cause I’m moving to an other country to my lover, we are getting married and soon I’ll start the university, so 2010 is a new beginning for me!

    Thanks for all.


    • Hi again Anna,

      thanks for being interested in buying the book. And do keep in touch. To begin a new life under a new Jupiter/Uranus conjunction certainly fits the bill. Bonne chance! ( hope I spelled this ok….)

  5. Hello Anne

    I am no astrologer (tho I am a diviner by another ilk) so I would appreciate a little help with something I noticed in the ‘Juranus’ chart – the unaspected Sun
    it jumped out at first sight, and, with all the focus on the orbiting big hitters in the chart and their heavily aspected dance, I can’t help being drawn back to this seemingly anomilous feature – surely we can’t ignore the old fella…!

    my guts tell me its shouting about something – instincts smell a collective need for reassurance in the face of disorientation and miscommunication

    can you ‘shed some light’

    by the way – in the face of a new found flowering fascination with astrology your site(s) are a great find – and the wit……!! pure fresh air – thanks

    all the best,

  6. Hi Rob

    great to hear from you and thanks for the compliments! Wit and fresh air are very necessary commodities in these tempestuous days and I am flattered that you think I provide a bit of both.Yes, you are right. There is a very wide applying square between the third house Sun and sixth house Saturn and that’s all. I haven’t looked into the deeper structures of the chart – midpoints etc – partly because I’ve been too busy writing all those articles! And because like everyone else I’ve been so mesmerised with the’big heavies’. I think your interpretation is a good one – and the Sun with only a weak aspect to Saturn may indicate a collective difficulty in assessing the upcoming energy pattern in a rational, measured way.

    Let’s put it out to the readers, shall we? What are your thoughts on this, folks out there?

    (I shall paste your comment and my answer onto the most recent of the articles – https://jupitermeetsuranus.wordpress.com/category/jupiter-meets-uranus-sky-falls-in-%E2%80%93-yes-no-or-merely-maybe/ – and see if other readers will rise to the challenge!)

  7. Hi Anne,

    I am interested in this particular conjunction between Jupiter and Uranus because it happens to fall smack on my Moon (29’33” Pisces).

    Also, the conjunction that happens in September will fall very near my birthday (September 14th 1981).

    The Moon rules my 8th house. So I would suspect that unexpected blessings may appear regarding loans or things of that nature. But, as you said, expect the unexpected. 😉

    Whatever happens it’s bound to be exciting! Thank you for your insight and studies regarding this auspicious planetary configuration.


  8. thanks for dropping by – would you like me to include you in the research team? With that Moon position it would be great to have your feedback as the “Jupiter/Uranus year” unfolds.

    And thanks for your appreciation of my efforts. I thought I had worn out my Jupiter/Uranus obsession when I completed the research I did for the 1997 conjunction – with 17 research volunteers – but it would appear not!

    • I would very much enjoy being included in your research team. Please tell me what I can do. 🙂

      • Hi JoAnn

        I am in the process of designing the research – whilst I do that, you could send me your birth data and email address: info@anne-whitaker.com will find me. My intention is to restrict my researchees to 20 ( I had 17 in my 1997 research ) otherwise it all becomes unmanageable. When I have my group, with data, I will contact everyone with further details. In the meantime, keep notes over the next 10 months with dates of any life events:inner (eg sudden insights) or outer
        occurring with yourself and/or those close – which are shockingly, newly outwith what you deem to be the norm. That will do for a start as a rough guide until I send everyone a more detailed structure. And thank you! Bear in mind that I will be very careful with confidentiality and privacy and will not place any personal information in the public realm without subjects’ permission. Anonymity was a key feature of the 1997 research, and will be this time too.

  9. I am also fascinated by the research into Jupiter/Uranus and would love to help however I can. I follow the sidereal horoscope however, some things remain the same in my sidereal and tropical charts: Jupiter + Uranus conjunct in my 5th house square my natal Jupiter in the 2nd house. I’m excited to see how this plays out as the 5th house is a fun one (romance, creativity, personal expression, etc.)

    The Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in 1997 was in my 3rd house opposition my natal Sun. I recall that having been an amazing stand-out year of action and excitement. I dated three foreign men (and had a profoundly romantic love affair with one), traveled quite a bit locally and internationally. My social life was amazing. Money was flowing in. Things were generally fun and exciting.

    • Hi Shana

      thanks for volunteering to join the group. I already have quite a few researchees – do read my reply to JoAnn above for initial guidelines. Thank you!

  10. Am particularly interested in the scientific side of this encounter and how it can influence the thought.

    I think that we may have the chance to throw away many too many obstacles to think in new and different ways the natural world…

    Which is far different from many models and patternsd constructed by modern science in last two centuries…

    • HI

      if you can get yourself a copy of my study of the 1997 Jupiter/Uranus conjunction “Jupiter Meets Uranus”you will find interesting material on ‘the scientific side of this encounter’ there.

      For this time around, keep following this and other sites – and the daily news!

  11. I was disappointed to see a dearth in astrology reports by house on the conjunction (only a couple on the whole www, though lots with just Jupiter transits or just Uranus transits). So I finally wrote one up. It’s based on the sidereal zodiac but will be pretty much the same in terms of the houses as any tropical zodiac (unless you have a lot of cusp houses):


    • Hi Shana

      thanks for posting this link which I’m sure readers will enjoy checking out – I certainly did and look forward with great anticipation to that bank error in my favour! (J/U in my 8th House). As you will know from reading through some of the articles here, I’m really more interested in observation than prediction – especially with Uranus the essence of whose action is unpredictable!

      If you are joining the research team you might find it useful to acquire “Jupiter Meets Uranus” where you can see the charts and read the feedback from my 17 researchees during the 1997 Aquarian conjunction: there, the impact of Jupiter/Uranus on the relevant planets in their houses is very clear. eg “Lucia”, my star participant, led a life-changing experience for a bunch of deprived inner city kids way up in the Highlands of Scotland – she had the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction fall on her 5th House Saturn.

  12. So true, Uranus is certainly an unpredictable game-changer, which is part of the fun….all the unique personalized scenarios that no one can predict. I am a great fan of the who-knows-what as well 🙂

    Will look forward to participating in your research!

    Cheers, Shana

  13. Hey Anne and friends,

    I dunno if this constitutes the first celebrity Jupiter/Uranus moment but Tipper and Al Gore divorcing after 40 years of marriage seems kind of Uranus. And having his tropical sun sign in Aries (along with transiting Jupiter and Uranus) could make for a milestone moment.

    One for the books?


  14. Hi Shana

    thanks for posting this link. The important point to look for in identifying the action of Jupiter/Uranus, in essence, is that it should bring into being, unexpectedly and usually shockingly, conditions which are entirely new. So we need to focus on that – and the Gore split certainly illustrates J/Uranus energy at work as you say. Gore was also born under the tough Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1947 just after WW2, and Saturn/Pluto people feel the harsh grind of that combination at each aspect – we are now at the waning square (from the 1982 conjunction) which is part of the Grand Cross pattern with Jupiter/Uranus in Aries. As I put it in another article on this site, written a year ago:

    “The Jupiter-Uranus predilection for seeing no limits, leaping before it looks and challenging the established order expressed through the filter of the rash, angry impetuousness of Aries and locked with the harsh, power-driven determination not to budge of the Saturn-Pluto square, offers a difficult and dangerous picture……”

    This is validated today with news of the gun massacre of 13 people (including the killer) and the serious injury of many others in Cumbria, England, UK, by an apparently mild-mannered man who broke through any limit of acceptability(Jupiter/Uranus in Aries) and acted out the worst side of the Saturn/Pluto combination – mass murder.

    And a nation born under Saturn/Pluto – Israel – is currently attracting international condemnation for its treatment of people of goodwill trying to bring humanitarian aid (the plus side of Jupiter/Uranus in Aries) to ordinary citizens suffering under the Gaza blockade.

    Here you see an example of the Jupiter/Uranus in Aries energy field, set in its Saturn/Pluto context, operating at three levels at once: the personal, the community, and the wider collective.

    “As above, so below” in all its awesome truth….

  15. I was researching the J/U comjunction in 0 degrees Aries and found some interesting material. Mostly written years ago.

    1. In combination with the malific star Scheat in Pegasus: mining disasters, hurricanes, or other events on the seas. There have been several mining deaths within the last month or so. Also fits the current gulf of Mexico oil well horror with human deaths and looming eco-caust. Possible hurricanes could make it even worse.

    2. The current Pope, Benedict XVI, has a natal chart with Uranus at 0 degrees Aries. Plus Jupiter and Mercury a few degrees before that in Pisces. But all of them in the 1st house of his natal chart.

    Anyone have some insights on any of this?

  16. Found another interesting corrolation.

    The director James Cameron has Jupiter-Uranus conjunct in Cancer in his natal chart.
    “Titanic” came out in 1997, a J/U conjunction year. And “Avatar” is close to this year’s conjunction.

    I think that Cameron, like most artists, was not consciously aware of all aspects of his work. But he did show us the end of the previous age with its powerful class prejudice. When technology was to be the answer for the world’s problems. And then a new age, where technology is a weapon of the powerful, yet hope comes by means of a recovered sense of interconnectedness.

  17. Hi Anne,
    Just caught this on news: Jupiter probably hit by Comet or asteroid; the incident was captured on film. Here is the link: http://www.nationalturk.com/en/jupiter-probably-hit-by-comet-or-asteroid-caught-on-camera-645724457

    Thought this was interesting considering the timing and all…

    • Hi Sherry

      I think Jupiter/Uranus triggering both our charts has made you able to read my mind! I have been thinking of starting a research file for collecting collective and cosmic events during the observational year of March 10 – Feb 11 which resonate with the Jupiter/Uranus energy field, and which are ‘picked up’ both by members of the research team and by interested supporters of the research project in general – and here you are, contributing to it before I even ask…. thanks for this interesting item which I will use as the start of the file. It’s great to have this help.

      When I did the research for the 1997 conjunction year, I had stacks and stacks of newspaper cuttings. But building a file of brief summary sentences accompanied by a Web link as you have done, strikes me as a more efficient way of doing things. I hope that other readers will pick up on our
      exchange and send in links from time to time!

  18. Hi Raphi

    thanks for these comments. You should check out both Theo White’s Mundane Global Astrology blog
    and Jamie Funk’s FUNKASTROLOGY http://funkastrology.co.uk/ for interesting work on Scheat if you have not seen them already. This fixed star does seem to have a pretty negative press!

    And I appreciate data re the Pope: one wouldn’t need to be much of an astrologer to figure out that he is ‘plugged in’ to the current pattern – as indeed would appear from what you say to be the case. Re insights, once again the ‘left-field’ dimension of Jupiter/Uranus never disappoints. In the article I did for the AFA in summer 2009, I offered some broad brush stroke thoughts on what the upcoming conjunction and its attendant pattern might bring: see https://jupitermeetsuranus.wordpress.com/category/jupiter-conjunct-uranus-a-few-thoughts-on-the-201011-encounter/

    In this article I talk about seeing a ‘ “messiah”-type figure emerge with challenging and disruptive effect socially and politically in the Aries phase….’ Now I realise that one manifestation from the current picture is no other than the messiah of atheistic beliefs, Richard Dawkins, and his plan to try to arrest the Pope when the latter visits the UK this autumn! You could not make that up….

    And many thanks for the material on James Cameron, which well demonstrates the unfolding of related patterns which can and does occur from one 14-year cycle of Jupiter and Uranus to the next.

  19. Hi Anne,
    Here is an exciting piece of news from MSN: Chinese scientists have been able to “teleport” data over long distances using quantum entanglement. Perfect Jupiter/Uranus symbolism!


    • Fantastic! This strikes me (until I’ve had a good trawl through the press, at least ) as another pioneering scientific breakthrough right on the heels of the Craig Venter team’s creation of a living cell on 20th May 2010 – using highly sophisticated computer technology.

      One for the collective research file!

  20. Hi Anne

    with the ‘big’ T-square/grand cross coming into orb (and the Ju/Ur pair due to slide back into the oceanic Piscean realms) much in mind : just found mention on http://www.starsoverwashington.com of the alleged gas bubble at BP well-head – heres how one ‘news agency’ has reported it :

    According to an article on beforeitsnews.com:

    Alarmist media tendencies aside I find it noteworthy that both Jupiter, Uranus Pluto and Neptune are known as ‘gas giants’ – of course, whether it is true or not the obvious fear factor is that ‘the bubble will burst’ – grand cross time or not – but, then it could be another example of insider fear mongering

    on the up/innovative side the current mutliple Japanese advances in space tech. are fascinating – stellar sails powered by photon wind + asteroid (star) dust intentionally coming back to earth in a little silver space-ship, to mention but two – sci-fi reality – good examples of Uranian/Jovian expansion?

    hope this is considered relevant and of interest,

    • HI Rob
      apologies for delay in reply. I have had one of my periodic switch-offs from computing – necessary to preserve tendons and sanity!

      This is great feedback. Thanks! I will add it to the file I am keeping on collective manifestations. Simply do not have time – or tendons! – to do collective as well as individual research, which I did for “Jupiter meets Uranus’ .

  21. Hello Anne,
    Well, I’m getting rather confused and frustrated. I have never gone through this transit without seeing an impact on my personal life…and yet, this time, nothing. I realize Jupiter/Uranus will conjunct twice more, but I usually have significant “hints” in the area of activity by this point. Any ideas?

    • Hi Sherry and Shana

      apologies for delay in reply. I have had one of my periodic switch-offs from computing – necessary to preserve tendons and sanity!

      Your feedback clearly shows why we should do research as astrologers. We only have to look at scientific theories to realise how marked the human tendency has been historically to take a theory as the truth – and not wish to contemplate contradictions. Look at what happened to Galileo in the 17th century when he challenged via his empirical observations the long-held Ptolemaic theory which endorsed the Catholic Church’s view that the Earth was the centre of the solar system!….my own research on the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in mid-February 1997 at 6 deg Aquarius, showed that of 17 researchees, 12 experienced inner/outer manifestations of the conjunction’s energies which supported the theory of what SHOULD happen, around the exact days of the conjunction. But five of them did not. Yet by the end of the research period of 1997/8, most of them reported very significant life changes in line with astrological theory. The stronger the Jupiter/ Uranus natal signature, the more dramatic and unexpected were the life changes. So you can perhaps see from this why we need to take notes on what happened if anything around the days preceding and following the conjunction, and times when it is triggered off. Shana is right to identify the upcoming eclipse – also times when the inner planets trigger the conjunction should be significant. Eg tomorrow the Sun moves into 0 Cancer, squaring the conjunction and setting off the whole Grand Cross pattern. The UK tomorrow will hear its emergency budget delivered by the new coalition government(in itself a Jupiter/Uranus political shock!)which has been described in advance as the most radical and toughest budget of a generation. I will be writing to you researchees soon. Keep taking notes!

  22. Sherry, I feel similar to you. I’ve had Jupiter and Uranus in the 5th house and it has been fun (lots of party invitations) but nothing life-changing YET. Keep in mind that there will be a lunar eclipse on the 26th-27th. So that could be the turning point needed for the conjunction to take full effect. We’ll see…

  23. P.S. That eclipse will be loosely (within a 3 to 5′ orb) square the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction…definitely an igniter.

  24. Thanks Anne. That was helpful info. And what a monster eclipse that was (at least for my friends in my age group and I–as it was square our natal Pluto!)–emotionally draining.

    I’m also wondering, along the lines of your trigger theory, if August will be a big month for longer term ‘results’ of the transit. It seems like a few planets will be stacked up along the Jup/Uranus conjunction axis. This time Saturn AND Mars+Venus in opposition to the conjunction.

    • Yes, that’s what one would expect. It has long been noted empirically that the faster-moving personal planets and eclipses set off unfolding stages of the deeper shifts taking place (both individually and collectively) via the much slower forming and separating patterns of the Outer Planets. So we shall see!

  25. Feel out of my league here but I can contribute to the last one.( Ed: that was in February 1997 at 6 deg Aquarius ) 6 degrees, Aq cusp 10th, 6 degrees from my moon. Came VERY close to a radical mastectomy. Only my own research stopped it. My No! Next inherited $16,000. Next moved to son’s upscale condo as son moved in with wife. Ending 14 yrs residency and signif. relation that had moved on. Asked to teach yoga helped me heal. Moved again and again, hiked mountains and 2002 that leap. Doing yoga since 1970.
    That was a shock. What happened to all the systems. I am tauras, gemini rising Aq. moon.Uranus 8 degrees on rising sign exact.
    This time inner happening incl. knifes threatening my neck. I have moved – close to my son who has Saturn 27 and 29 degrees pisces by progression. He’s a family man. 44. I’ve evolved to present time by letting go of my little girl and accepting her as is 47 yrs old. I was shocked that I had that kind of mental power.
    I also had a vision of my Aries niece and her Scorpio sister enthusiastically jumping into a truck with a lightning bolt down it’s side and being hit head on. Hope that was symbolic. This month July may tell. I sent out warnings. This would be Yellowknife. So it seems to me these planets just keep rocking as long as you do. I was born 44. May 14th.

    • ‘So it seems to me these planets just keep rocking as long as you do’……..Charl, you are so right!

      Thank you for posting this vivid feedback of planetary energies in action.

  26. Well I have noticed a great deal of havoc around me during these past few weeks. Rapid pace in the work place…new responsibilities, many unusual twists and turns with my clients, co-workers and supervisors, unexpected events taking place almost every day…none of them have been beneficial or positive, everything just adding additional stress to my life, people are acting strangely, short tempered, angry outbursts, peculiar ideas and thought processes seem to be rampart in my immediate sphere. I have no idea what is going to happen next. Gives me a tremendous feeling of disruption and inability to count on the usual “status quo”. All and all this is a very unusual Jupiter/Uranus transit for me personally. I always remember feeling this sense of wonder at the rapidly changing pace of life during this transit…and knowing I was going to end up in a better place. Not so much right now. I just think everyone is crazy and I often have a sense of great danger around me.

  27. ummm, meant to say rampant, not rampart, Sorry!

  28. Tell me about it Sherry – this sounds all too familiar!!
    rampart works too – Saturnian resistance p’raps!? Stresses as impact points..?

  29. Was going to mention the Saturn thing Rob…but decided to leave it out at the last minute. I do think you’re right though…Saturn approaching a conjunction to my sun and ascendant…ouch!

    • Dear Rob and Sherry
      greetings from unexpectedly sunny Orkney Isles!

      Yes, the last conjunction was exact once only and was ruled by Uranus. This one has three exact meetings, the first one ruled by Mars and held in a Saturn/Pluto matrix.

      So the testing disruptive unpredictability you describe is pretty common to all the people I have in my research and in my commenters on this site!.

  30. Ju/Ur together for me, opposite Sun, has been like sticking my fingers in a 5 jillion megawatt energy source. Jupiter exaggerates the Uranian energy, and while I’m getting a lot done, I feel rather dazed, not to mention singed by the end of the day.

  31. This conjunction and the last one were also conjunct by declination. The one in 2011 will not be. Will that defuse the intensity a bit? I would like to hope so.
