A conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus on a mundane level will often reveal advancements in science, astrology, computing, electronics, and higher mathematics occur as a result of this transiting action in the sky symbolising increased autonomy, progress, and unexpected opportunities. Innovation and progress in all of these areas are typically at their highest during these times. The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction is associated with times of unexpected good fortune, breakthroughs, and discoveries. We push past limitations, open up previously closed doors, and discover our own potential. Erbertin coined the term “Thank the Lord” for this particular arrangement.
On the mundane level, we witnessed Man’s first steps on the Moon in 1969 under this same energy. Under the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Aquarius in 1997, the first sheep was cloned. Jupiter and Uranus produced a conjunction in Gemini in the 7th house in 1983, the same year that the immensely renowned horoscope website Astrodienst came into being. Astrologer Liz Greene was also exposed to astrology during this transit, and she had a conversation with Mrs. Hickey, who encouraged her to learn more about astrology. As a result, numerous astrology students now profit from her knowledge and experience.
Quote from Astrology of Fate by Liz Greene:
Naturally I was quick to inspect the transits and progressions in operation at the time of my meeting with Mrs Hickey and its subsequent repercussions. The most striking transit at work was Jupiter passing through Gemini and making a direct station on my natal Uranus in the seventh house. This is a classic interpretation of a ‘fated’ (or synchronous) encounter, which brought opportunities in its wake but left my life as quickly as it had come. I have learned since to pay close attention to the transit of Jupiter, for although they often pass quickly and without noticeable concrete benefits for the person who is waiting for heaven to shower manna on him, they often coincide with opportunities which can greatly expand one’s vision and understanding. But one must act on such openings which appear in the curtain that masks the inner world. We might do well to remember Zeus, who with lightning quickness pursues and mates his chosen paramours, and then vanishes as quickly, leaving them fertilized with a semi-divine child to bear.
We have a sense of youth, exuberance, creativity, adventure, and true anticipation of the future when Jupiter and Uranus are in harmony. Many possibilities present themselves now, therefore it’s time to get involved in fresh endeavours and make new acquaintances.
