Natal Jupiter conjunct square opposite Pluto
In your natal chart, Jupiter represents faith as well as the reward hoped for. Jupiter is your capacity to see (and believe in) the big picture – he is the motivational speaker in your psyche.
Pluto deepens and empowers what it touches to the nth degree. When Pluto forms a dynamic aspect (conjunction, square or opposition) with Jupiter, your beliefs become powerful and your dreams larger than life.
Jupiter Pluto aspects tend to manifest strongly if your Sun, Moon or an inner planet (Mercury, Venus or Mars) is also involved with the aspect. Here are some possible expressions of this aspect:
TREMENDOUS OPTIMISM & RESOURCEFULNESS
Jupiter moves the mind toward positive, uplifting expression – except when you’re caught up in ego struggles (in which case, a king-complex might emerge.) Pluto can amplify Jupiter’s positive outlook so that you develop a powerful optimism that says ‘no problem is insurmountable.’
Fueled by the power of such belief, you are able to tackle large issues and find solutions to them more often than not. After a while, people may begin to say “If anyone can solve this issue, it’s you,” which will bring you to the position of…
LEADERSHIP & PERSONAL POWER
Faith is magnetic. Great leaders have such faith in themselves and their vision of what is right, that they cannot help but attract others. If you have Jupiter conjunct square or opposite Pluto, your belief in yourself could be strong enough to lead an army (in fact, General Norman Schwarzkopf did. He had Jupiter square Pluto.)
Using their powerful leadership, a Jupiter-Pluto person could lead people toward good or evil. Think Mohandas Gandhi (Jupiter conjunct Pluto) who led his country to freedom, or cult leader Jim Jones (Jupiter conjunct Pluto) who led nearly 1000 people including himself to a mass suicide. Same aspect, vastly different results.
LARGER THAN LIFE VISION & ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Noel Tyl said Pluto is the adverb of the horoscope – answering the question of “how much, how far.” In relation to Jupiter, Pluto asks “How far do you want to go in life? How much do you want to achieve?” Jupiter-Pluto person seems to have an attitude of “If you can dream it, you can achieve it.”
Examples of Natal Jupiter Pluto Aspects
Here are some examples of visionaries and super-achievers with a Jupiter Pluto aspect:
- Mohandas Gandhi (Jupiter conjunct Pluto)
- Bill Gates (Jupiter conjunct Pluto)
- Nelson Mandela (Jupiter conjunct Pluto)
- Arnold Schwarzenegger (Jupiter square Pluto)
- Steven Spielberg (Jupiter square Pluto)
- Margaret Thatcher (Jupiter opposite Pluto)
Transit Pluto conjunct square opposite Jupiter
When transit or solar arc Pluto forms a conjunction, square or opposition with Jupiter, you may feel a strong sense of optimism and personal power similar to the natal Pluto Jupiter aspect described above. Similar possibility exists for solar arc Jupiter conjunct, square or opposite natal Pluto (whereas transit Jupiter tends to pass too quickly, although it still has the same potential.)
During this time period, you may be challenged to enlarge your vision and seek bigger (or deeper) goals than what you’ve previously imagined. Perhaps it’s time to raise your own expectation of what you can achieve.
Jupiter/Pluto Midpoint: Potential for Wealth and Success
It has been noted that emphasis of Jupiter/Pluto midpoint in a horoscope (i.e. you have a planet in hard aspect with the midpoint of Jupiter/Pluto) can signal potentials for success and wealth. Similarly, a transit or solar arc activating the Jupiter/Pluto midpoint could suggest a period of success and financial gain.
Example: Steven Spielberg listed above has Mars=Jupiter/Pluto on the Aries Point (AP), reflecting his mega-success. Schwarzenegger similarly has AP=Jupiter/Pluto.
Even in “normal” people’s horoscopes, planets or angles highlighting the Jupiter/Pluto midpoint tends to suggest financially successful people (or people on the way to becoming successful.)
In Closing: How to Unlock the Potential of Jupiter Pluto Aspects
If you have a natal Jupiter Pluto aspect but are not expressing the powerful quality discussed in this article, chances are you have yet to uncover your true potential. The question is, what is getting in the way of your potential? The answer will usually be apparent in other parts of your horoscope.
Pluto aspects sometimes carry a theme of reclaiming your power from oppressing circumstance. In the case of Pluto conjunct, square or opposite Jupiter, you may need to let go of unhealed resentment or even rage before you can reclaim the sense of faith in life and yourself.
If the above does not seem to apply to you, then perhaps what you need is a goal or a dream big enough to unlock the potential of Jupiter Pluto aspects. If you didn’t have to settle, what goals would you be aiming for right now? Consider your answer carefully, and see if you can begin moving toward it starting today.
