The Basics of Astrology
The Moon and Jupiter in favorable aspect
Astrological aspects: general introduction
The analysis of a natal chart must be as comprehensive as possible. This is what we do as we make our personalized reports available in our e-shop. It must be borne in mind that many astrologers concentrate on the interpretation of planets in signs and in houses, and of angles, without paying enough attention to aspects. On the contrary, we believe that when aspects involve personal planets between themselves or slow-moving planets, they are of fundamental importance. In all cases, they are at least as significant as the Ascendant or the Sun. This is particularly relevant when the orb is tight (i.e. when the aspect is exact). This is the criterion we apply for this new series of articles which describe how well-known personalities experience certain aspects.
The Moon and Jupiter in harmonious aspect
This sort of aspect rightfully enjoys an excellent reputation. With her subtle and changing nature, the Moon describes our emotional world and our needs. As for Jupiter, the Tradition considers that he is "the Greater Benefic", even though this nickname must be use with caution, because the planet sometimes brings about uncontrolled enthusiasm or excesses which may finally backfire on us.
However, when these planets are linked to one another by a positive aspect – especially if it is by a harmonious conjunction (unchallenged by other planets) – the energies of the Moon and of Jupiter blend nicely to improve our self-fulfillment.
The Moon does not mean social achievement, honor, or ambition displayed, unlike when the Sun is involved. When the Moon gets along well with Jupiter, she gives what could be referred to as a happy, kind, and cheerful nature.
The person blessed with such an aspect seeks the silver lining in all situations; a rather pleasant disposition prompts this bon vivant or this Epicurean to appreciate everything life offers, including the most basic pleasures.
Balance and plenitude are close at hand, without embarrassment or existentialist thought.
The person is enthusiastic, easily arouses friendliness, and therefore is very sociable. In all cases, members of the entourage and close friends first benefit from his/her benevolence and innate generosity. He/She enjoys life, desires to share what he/she has, with some insouciance and true good mood.
Lastly, this aspect may entail more intangible, but just as pleasant, consequences. It gives a fondness for travelling or at least for movement, owing to a healthy curiosity. One accepts enthusiastically the traditions one discovers, including in spiritual or philosophical fields; it strengthens a harmonious vision of life and of human condition.
As usual, sextiles and trines grease the wheels, which thus function very smoothly, whereas conjunctions blend the qualities of both planets in an even more considerable way; one thinks big, especially when happiness is concerned.
In order to better explain this aspect, we are mentioning several well-known personalities (here Barack Obama, Ariana Grande, Al Pacino, and Tyra Banks). This article deliberately isolates the aspects so as to better describe them. For this reason, it claims on no account to be a psychological analysis of the celebrity in question, for whom many other articles are available in the "Focus" section.
It is possible to find thousands of other horoscopes having the Moon and Jupiter in favorable aspect (or any other aspects), with the online tool search. The planets, positions in sign and in house as well as the orb, are configurable.
It is not surprising that the natal chart of the 44th president of the United States of America displays a nice trine between the Moon in Gemini in the 4th House, and Jupiter in Aquarius in the 12th. Although very internalized due to the Houses involved (the 4th represents the roots and the home, the 12th, hidden ordeals, whether solved or not), this aspect confirms that Obama needs to be appreciated, even though all this remains concealed behind some sort of distance.
Everyone remembers Obama's talents as an orator; he seemed so grateful that he has aroused people's enthusiasm.
The Moon in Gemini endows him with sociability, curiosity, and the ability to communicate straightforwardly. Of course, the planet is in a more delicate aspect with Pluto, but if one focuses on the trine with Jupiter, one imagines that his popularity was instrumental in his election as well as in his reelection.
To conclude, one must not forget that in male charts, the Moon's qualities also describe the kind of females he is attracted to, with whom he feels fine durably. In this case, it is impossible to ignore the very dynamic Michelle Obama, constantly by his side, occupying a special place, which does not mean that she wants to take the President's place. Nuance!
In this regard, the understanding between the spouses is likely to be extremely good in the areas of intellectual exchanges.
One may imagine that in times of challenges, Jupiter supports the Moon and provides the former head of State with great resilience capacities.
Obama, the eternal young man with the Moon in Gemini, is always able to make with cheerfulness and optimism a positive assessment of his experiences.

Born in Florida, the artist embodies marvellously well what one supposes the American dream to be, and a fortiori, success. Very precocious, she was 15 when she appeared in a musical. Since her debut, she has continuously enjoyed success. In addition to her talent, Grande had no reason to doubt her lucky star.
Popular, she now has one of the most followed Instagram accounts worldwide, with 110 million subscribers.
In this regard, it is interesting to note Jupiter's leverage effect, especially visible when it concerns the young woman's image (Libra) and her private affairs (the Moon), cleverly staged on social networks.
One also recognizes the Moon-Jupiter touch through Grande's philanthropic activities.
She often gave a lot of herself; she donated her charity concerts rights to various causes, with a preference for those benefitting underprivileged youths and their education.

A real living myth, in his natal chart, Al Pacino has a great trine linking the Moon in Sagittarius in the 5th House, and Jupiter proudly sitting on the Midheaven in Aries. This Fire aspect has everything required to arouse jealousy, because it benefits both the career and all matters of passionate love and creativity.
It could be added that this brilliant Jupiter is a valuable asset to Pacino, since he supports the Moon who is, besides, involved in a more disturbing T-square configuration (with the Mars-Venus duet, and Neptune).
Romantic roller coasters are the result of this aspect. However, regardless of the hurdles Pacino may have undergone, he has always managed to overcome them, probably thanks to Jupiter unleashing his full potential.
The countless prizes and nominations he received throughout his rich career are also among the consequences of this position.
The actor was able to attract the public worldwide, and saw his talent unanimously acclaimed by critics.
It must be underlined that this kid of Italian descent, born in a downscale area of New York, rubbed shoulders with the greatest celebrities as soon as he played in his first films.
After the film The Godfather, by Francis Ford Coppola, Pacino said that playing opposite Marlon Brando has been extremely stressing, but later on, in hindsight, this encounter will remain engraved in his memory as one of the most important events of his professional life.
Although he is believed to be very critical and demanding with himself, or slightly melancholic, Pacino was continually seeking emotional happiness sheltered from hustles and public scrutiny; it is probable that he carefully managed to protect it.

The "Talk Show Princess", as she is sometimes called, is a media personality who needs no introduction. A model, then a TV host and producer, she was able to vary the style of her performances while maintaining the loyalty of an audience which followed her over the years.
This is the mark of an auspicious Jupiter who, in her natal chart, is in Aquarius – a sign associated with the 7th art and electronic media, in particular – in the 8th House. In this position, the planet already indicates financial successes coming from other people's money in connection with public activities of an Aquarius nature.
A hallmark of the self-made woman who fears nothing, Banks managed to provide advice in the fields of fashion, beauty, love relationships, and self-confidence.
Let us recall that in Forbes magazine, she is regularly ranked among the most influential women in the world.
Above all, let us focus on the aspect we are interested in, that is the sextile between Jupiter and a prominent Moon in Aries and in conjunction with the Midheaven (the career).
On the latter topic, we easily guess that she knew what she was talking about, since this feature is one of the characteristics of her rich nature.
Generous, among other programmes, Banks created TZONE, with the objective to develop leadership and capacity building, and the Tyra Banks Scholarship, a fund aiming at helping African-American girls pursue their studies.
