The Sun and Jupiter in tense 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 Sun and Jupiter in challenging aspect

In this article, we explore the tense aspect between the Sun and Jupiter in the natal chart.

The Sun depicts our individuality, will, deep identity, and character—our true self, as opposed to the Ascendant, which shows how others perceive us or the facade we present. The Sun represents our genuine self, without pretense or deception, essentially what we know about ourselves.

It also symbolizes the desire to project ourselves, which is why astrologers say it corresponds to our social signature. Depending on its sign and the planets aspecting it, the Sun can make it easier or harder to live out our individuality, which may be extroverted, dominant, secretive, combative, serious, etc.

The house in which it is located indicates the life sector where we feel comfortable or irresistibly attracted.

This approach should be nuanced by noting that in a female chart, the Sun also describes the qualities of her companion, as the Sun is of yang essence. Additionally, during our childhood, it symbolizes the father or authority, until we reach maturity ourselves.

As for Jupiter, it is traditionally known as the Great Benefic, bringing luck, openness, and expansion, especially in the areas indicated by its natal house placement. The planet shares characteristics similar to the Sun: it strengthens self-confidence, faith, benevolence, and optimism.

However, when in a tense aspect with the Sun, Jupiter can lead to excess or push the native towards arrogance or vanity, or a mismatch between personal and societal projects.

Such a configuration may potentially expose the native to ego inflation, leading to a certain blindness, all balanced by the rest of the birth chart, which can limit this influence and sometimes nullify it.

Despite the inherent generosity of these two planets, they may lead to overreaching or difficulty in self-reflection.

He underestimates the dangers of not recognizing certain betrayals, or remains convinced that he can always bounce back, regardless of the situation.

These often talented individuals find it hard to admit their mistakes, overly convinced by their ideas or struggling to change direction, especially if fixed signs are involved or if the tense aspect isn't balanced by other harmonious influences.

They may also indulge excessively in themselves, allowing for unnecessary and luxurious expenditures, frequent gastronomic pleasures, and a lavish lifestyle.

In order to better explain this aspect, we are mentioning several well-known personalities (here Dominique Strauss-Kahn (square), Kylie Jenner (opposition), Kate Hudson (square), and the singer Sting (opposition)). This article deliberately isolates the aspect 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 Sun in tense aspect with Jupiter (or any other aspects), with the online tool search. The planets, positions in sign and in house as well as the orb, are configurable.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn

Dominique Strauss-Kahn / Author: Marie-Lan Nguyen 05-2007 / CC BY-SA (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5/deed.en)

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, nicknamed DSK, was a French politician, renowned for his intelligence and his skills as an economist, and was considered the leading favorite for the 2012 presidential election

However, a global scandal erupted in the spring of the previous year, abruptly ending his ambitions.

Accused of sexual assault by a hotel maid, Nafissatou Diallo, he was arrested on the plane that was to take him back to Paris. In jail, then under house arrest while organizing his trial, DSK made headlines and had to resign as the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund.

His then-wife, Anne Sinclair, a renowned journalist, did everything to save him, spending 1.5 million dollars to reach a settlement with the accuser, before eventually divorcing. It is rumored, without knowing the actual figure, that the total sum, including legal fees, secret settlements, house arrest, and security measures, was around 6 million dollars.

While this unfortunate incident does not fully define DSK's journey, it does clearly illustrate the dissonance between his native Sun in Taurus, conjunct Venus, square to Jupiter located on the Descendant in Aquarius, both fixed signs.

DSK, a victim of his overpowering instincts, has always struggled with self-control in matters of his conquests and fleeting romantic encounters.

At the same time, despite these inclinations, he managed to have a successful career as a distinguished political figure and economist, leading the IMF for many years.

The astrological aspect we are examining is fully manifested in his unusual marital life, requiring much independence and tolerance, as indicated by Jupiter in Aquarius.

Looking back, DSK may have realized the extraordinary luck he had in having a spouse ready to show boundless generosity.

He then managed to make a comeback, thanks to the perseverance and resilience of a Sun-Saturn trine in the 10th sector (career) and 2nd sector (money earned through work), and the generally positive influence of Jupiter, when channeled properly, as he re-entered the business world.

Unfortunately, the dynamic aspect of his chart still led to some financial and legal setbacks.

Now remarried, he leads a less public life, likely being more cautious to ensure that his passionate and sensual nature does not cause him further problems.

Kylie Jenner

Similar to other members of the Kardashian family, Kylie Jenner is influenced by a Jupiter in tension with one of her luminaries (the Sun or the Moon).

As a native Leo with the Sun ruling the sign in the 8th house, she has a tendency to seek attention at all costs.

However, her Jupiter in opposition to the Sun, in Aquarius and in the 2nd house, sometimes leads to excesses and errors in judgment.

In the family dynamic, Kylie Jenner is the younger sister of Kendall Jenner, with whom she often collaborates on television and fashion projects. Known for her extravagant style, Kylie seems to struggle with setting boundaries, reflecting this astrological aspect.

Despite denying having undergone cosmetic surgery, she likely has indulged in it. This behavior may have influenced some vulnerable young girls to emulate her look and engage in harmful challenges.

Kylie Jenner sometimes appears disconnected from reality or enjoys provocation, as shown by a controversial Instagram post featuring two private jets, captioned, "Do you want to take mine or yours?"

Despite her excesses and escapades, Kylie has demonstrated a sharp business acumen, becoming the youngest billionaire at 21 and frequently mentioned by Forbes magazine for her financial success.

Therefore, in Kylie Jenner's life, Jupiter and the Sun play their roles fully, even though these two planets can sometimes lead to excess.

Kate Hudson

Actress Kate Hudson, best known for her roles in romantic comedies, has captivated audiences with her charm and humor, reflecting the legacy of her parents, actors Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.

Though Russell is not her biological father, she has always regarded him as such.

In Kate Hudson's birth chart, Jupiter's angular position on the Cancer Ascendant draws attention, indicating potential family-related concerns. This planet forms a square with the Sun in Aries in the 10th house.

This aspect could explain issues related to her biological father's absence and the emotional impact it may have had on her.

For her, the question of personal identity is intimately linked to her family history. Jupiter highlights the very privileged and open environment in which she grew up from childhood. This is supported by Mars, Mercury, and Venus to counterbalance the effects of this dynamic aspect with the Sun.

We can see the mark of the planetary duo in the peculiarities of her destiny, notably a large sibling group, the varied origins of her ancestors, and the practice of Buddhism.

Navigating these various elements was likely not easy – for instance, Kate Hudson has had three children with three different fathers – but she has managed to forge her own path with the energy of her native Sun in Aries.

Sting / Author : Nikita 06-2011 / CC BY-SA (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en)

The singer Sting, with an exceptional artistic career, has shone both as a solo artist and with the band Police.

His astrological chart, full of contradictions, is particularly interesting as a whole, while highlighting the specific aspect we are studying.

The Sun in Libra indicates a social destiny, being the ruler of the Ascendant in Leo, the latter granting it strong influence. The luminary is conjunct Saturn, suggesting an ego imbued with the values of seriousness and patience of this planet.

To this, we add the opposition of Jupiter in Aries and in the 9th house, bringing a form of fiery and dynamic energy.

From a young age, Sting manifested an irresistible musical vocation, relying on his surroundings and notably one of his uncles, to acquire the technical foundations of his future profession.

The band Police then brought him global success. He gradually had the desire to spread his own wings, becoming master of his destiny.

His humanitarian commitments probably reflect personal concerns related to his success, prompting him to redistribute a share of the luck he feels he has received.
