Sun opposition Jupiter

Sun opposition Jupiter, Sun square Jupiter
Although their intentions are generally good, people with challenging aspects between the Sun and Jupiter are given to overdoing things. They can easily gloss over realistic details and get themselves into debt, overindulge in pleasures such as food and drink, and promise more than they can deliver.

For the most part, they find help for their excesses. Somebody's there to bail them out, as plenty of people believe that their hearts are in the right place. Generally, this is the case, but if excessive behavior becomes a pattern, and the natives continually face light consequences, there is the danger that they will not learn from their mistakes and abuse the "system", relying on their friends and family to help them out a little too often. Their reputation for being good people, thus, can eventually be used to further their purposes.

However, many people with this aspect don't fall into the trap of losing their sincerity. They are generous, helpful, and charitable. Still, the tendency to live beyond their means is a real threat that many struggle with much of their lives. Another thing to watch for is depression. These people tend to go through periods of intense highs when they are excessively optimistic. These periods are so marked that they seem to be unnatural and a fall seems to be inevitable. They can make promises they intend to keep, but have a problem with follow-through. Self-control can be a real problem. Usually quite knowledgeable and generous with their time, these people have many talents that they may take for granted.

General discussion of Sun-Jupiter aspects.

Alternate interpretations:

Note: The square, semi-square, sesquiquadrate, and opposition are also called "hard", "challenging", or "inharmonious" aspects.

Sun opposition Jupiter:  Children with this aspect often need to learn to listen, because they may have a tendency of doing the opposite of what they are told! Basically a positive placement indicating enormous energy and radiance, the pitfall of the Sun/Jupiter opposition is overconfidence manifesting as a tendency to take on too many projects at once or a tendency to delve into projects without prior training. There is a tendency to think "I can do anything!" which is fine as long as the child is willing to go through the necessary training to get there! He could get carried away when it comes to vocational choices, following rainbows! This going against himself, so to speak, may also bring him in opposition to those in authority. Help him examine carefully the choices he makes. Insist he finish what he begins, and insist he promise only that which objectively can be fulfilled. Teach your child the importance of right timing and punctuality! Check the nature of the signs and houses that the Sun and Jupiter are in for greater insight in balancing the qualities of this polarity.
 -- Interpretation from the Child Star Report.

Sun opposition Jupiter: You aim high, dream big dreams, and have a tremendous sense of what is possible for you to achieve. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility, and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be your faults. Generally, however, your great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation, suits you well. -- Interpretation from the Merlin Report.

Sun opposition Jupiter: Sometimes you're prone to unrealistically high expectations, and this in turn can cause frustration when real life doesn't measure up.

Your optimism and self-confidence will go through periods of being exceedingly high, making you feel invincible. You'll experience more satisfaction if you take the time to think things through and proceed with patience and even a certain amount of caution. -- Interpretation from the Your Life Path Report.
