The Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction in 2024

The Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction in 2024

For many astrologers, the major aspect of 2024, on a collective level, is the meeting of Jupiter and Uranus at 21°50' of Taurus, which will occur on April 21 at 2:27 AM UT.

This conjunction will be supported by a sextile from Mars in Pisces, which could act as a trigger, as is often the case with faster planets joining a mundane or personal configuration.

When it comes to conjunctions, we are always at the beginning of a cycle, regardless of the planets involved. The cycle of Jupiter and Uranus, lasting about 14 years, is considered one of the ten major cycles according to experts in mundane astrology.

The last meeting between Jupiter and Uranus occurred in 2010, on June 8 at 0° Aries, then on September 19 at 28° Pisces, and finally on January 4, 2011, at 27° Pisces. This marked the entire 2010-2011 period, as is the case with the movements of slow planets. Furthermore, it was due to their respective retrogradations that the conjunction was exactly reformed three times, twice in Aries, before moving into Pisces.

In 2024, Jupiter, being the faster of the two planets, will apply to Uranus, which has been established in Taurus since 2018, a sign where the planet has made significant progress. However, this time, the meeting will be the only one before the next one, scheduled for 2037 in Cancer.

Let's already look further into the major trends that will emerge, starting by elaborating more on the symbolisms of these two planets.

The Effect of Jupiter

In mundane astrology, Jupiter is associated with liberalism, a tendency to act as the father figure or even play God, and to display a somewhat paternalistic attitude.

A head of state influenced by this tendency might reinforce such behaviors, for instance.

On a collective level, Jupiter encourages the adoption of laws that favor openness, expansion, and a certain imperialism.

On the downside, it can lead to arrogant and inflationary politics.

The Effect of Uranus

In mundane astrology, Uranus unequivocally disrupts the established order. It is inherently revolutionary, innovative, and independent.

Uranus is associated with right-wing politics and even a certain type of left-wing fascism, according to one of the specialists in this astrological branch, Charles Harvey.

Uranian power tends to be idealistic, but can also sometimes be autocratic and totalitarian.

The Jupiter-Uranus Cycle

In its best expression, this cycle of just under fourteen years is linked to growth and the awakening of things. It combines Uranus's idealistic aspiration with Jupiter's optimism, offering possibilities for progress regardless of the initial situation.

Both planets aim to push boundaries, both literally and metaphorically.

On one hand, this can manifest as the establishment of unfettered trade relations, for example, left to the discretion of the parties involved, with minimal state intervention.

On the other hand, this Jupiter-Uranus combination strengthens the Promethean spirit of rebellion, free will, and individual enterprise.

André Barbault, a renowned French astrologer who has conducted extensive studies in this field, considers this cycle to have a predominant influence on capitalism.

In its challenging expression, the Jupiter-Uranus cycle can amplify extremist movements.

There's a temptation to oppose the existing power, which can become uncontrollable.

This configuration can lead to explosive, unpredictable, and chaotic situations.

The Jupiter-Uranus Cycle in the Past

In 1968-1969, the conjunction of Uranus and Jupiter in Libra emphasized social relations with the aim of creating a much broader sense of equality. This conjunction is believed by many mundane astrologers to have contributed to the liberation movements that took place in 1969.

In 2010-2011, the conjunction of Uranus and Jupiter, which first occurred in Aries, was linked to the Arab Spring and the peoples' desire to free themselves from authoritarian or dictatorial regimes.

The Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction of April 21, 2024

The meeting of the two planets will occur in Taurus, a sign belonging to the Earth element and the Fixed mode. Taurus aspires to stability, favoring the most natural means to achieve it. It enjoys cultivating inner serenity fueled by simple pleasures and is not disturbed by a certain routine.

This sign values its daily small pleasures, closely linked to its senses. Yet, Taurus is a robust worker once set in motion. It does not like abstract concepts, needing to achieve concrete results.

Here, Jupiter is not uncomfortable, as it enhances the materialistic sides (without negative connotations). Prosperity reassures, calms, and enables facing the future with confidence. This is the prototype of the bon vivant, who does not need sophistication to appreciate their condition.

Uranus, however, is the polar opposite of the Taurus style. A cerebral planet, fast, even lightning-fast, attached to nothing but its innovative ideas. It seeks to shake up the areas affected by its passage. In Taurus, Uranus here attacks our dear certainties, habits, comfort, and material property.

If we are already accustomed to Uranian effects since its entry into the sign in 2018, we should see that we are reaching the peak of this T-square transit in 2024. Jupiter indeed amplifies Uranian tendencies, also bringing its own influence, which does not go unnoticed.

Whenever Jupiter and Uranus meet, we can expect to feel a surge of innovative ideas, comparable to an electric shock (the Uranus effect).

This specific signature, which is set in motion in spring 2024, will pave the way for a radical transformation that will begin during this conjunction and then develop throughout the nearly fourteen-year cycle.

This new phase could be characterized by the emergence of futuristic energy, made of discoveries or space travel. Jupiter, associated with travel, thus allies with Uranus, the planet of technology, genius, and inspiration to open unsuspected horizons.

Artificial intelligence will probably take a major leap forward, changing our lifestyles and work. We already see this since the end of 2023 with ChatGPT and its cousins like Google Bard and its Gemini option, Claude 3, Mistral, Bing Chat, etc. The gradual emergence of robots associated with AI will certainly amplify this revolution in our habits.

The Effects of the Conjunction Related to Taurus

Economically, we could expect improved productivity with surprising results. Cryptocurrencies, already in the spotlight, might experience sudden growth (subject to other influences in play).

The agricultural sector, which has been undergoing changes for several months, is on the brink of an unexpected revolution. This could lead to protest movements, in line with the energy liberation drive induced by this conjunction.

We can also anticipate technological advancements that will revolutionize our global food consumption practices, under the combined effect of these two planets in Taurus.

The Impact on Our Lives

So far, we have discussed the potential of this cycle on a global scale, but we should not forget its influence on our individual lives. In any case, this Jupiter-Uranus conjunction should also be synonymous with professional promotions, financial gains and profits, exciting new loves, and spiritual and creative breakthroughs.

These effects do not begin precisely on the day of the conjunction but are felt from mid-March to mid-May. If key positions in our birth chart are located in the third decan of Taurus (especially around the 22° degree), such as the Sun, the Moon, the Ascendant, the Midheaven, or a planetary cluster, we should be more sensitive than others to these effects.

This exposure to new perspectives could produce a sort of quantum leap. It is also the ideal time to engage in spiritual or metaphysical activities to take advantage of this transit.

To a lesser extent, those with planets or objects around 22° of Virgo or Capricorn might enjoy positive fallout. Meanwhile, those with an emphasis on 22° of Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius should feel tensions in the aforementioned areas (and according to the house placement and rulers, of course).

Therefore, it is recommended to conduct a thorough analysis of the birth chart to arrive at more precise conclusions, which we encourage you to do, for example, through Astrotheme applications.
