The Biggest Transit of 2024 is here: Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction

One of the biggest astrological moments of 2024 arrives on April 20 via 21 degrees of Taurus. Can you feel the momentum building? Btw, I know what you’re thinking—wasn't eclipse season and Mercury retrograde more than enough? It most certainly was, but fear not—the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction brings forth an exhilarating breakthrough of energies.

However, before we discuss the essence of this pretty epic transit, it’s important that we get to the root of the matter: What do Jupiter and Uranus represent in astrology, and how are these celestial energies expressed via the sign of Taurus? Believe it or not, Uranus in Taurus is already an oxymoron in itself, and I’ll tell you why. 

First things first, both Jupiter and Uranus are considered generational planets in astrology. This means it takes relatively long for them to fully transit the zodiac, which, in turn, contributes to the energetic footprint of an entire generation. Jupiter only spends approximately 13 months in a zodiac sign, but it is still relevant when considering the wisdom and beliefs obtained during its transits. Also known as the Greater Benefic, Jupiter is the planet of faith, expansion, and spiritual wisdom. Uranus, on the other hand, spends about seven years in a zodiac sign, which typically brings radical shifts, technological advancements, and societal changes. Just to give you an example, Uranus in Aries (2010 through 2018) was the era of the "selfie" and the beginning of FaceTime. Aries rules the head and is a representation of “the self.”

In May 2018, Uranus made its official debut in Taurus. Since then, we’ve experienced upheaval and radical shifts in the realm of finances, security, and the material world at large. During this season, we've witnessed groundbreaking developments in financial technology (Klarna, AfterPay), as well as the rise of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. The way we interact with our money has inevitably changed, but there have also been sudden shifts in our global economy which will continue to reshape our financial landscape overall.

Given its innate modus operandi, which is to magnify everything it comes in contact with, Jupiter's influence adds a layer of exaggerated expansion to all of this. Also, it’s important to consider the areas of life that are governed by Jupiter, such as education, religion, and travel, as they could be of greater significance during this time. Moreover, these planets meet every 13 to 14 years to initiate a new synodic cycle (the last one took place in 2011), which makes this conjunction all the more pivotal.

In the meantime, check which astrological house belongs to 21-22 degrees of Taurus in your birth chart. This is where you’re likely feeling a sense of restlessness or anticipation as something incredibly liberating and revelatory is about to occur in this area of your life. Also, consider the essence of Venus-ruled Taurus, which has everything to do with finances, values, and, more importantly, our comfort zone. This fixed earth sign speaks about what is of value to us and what we essentially “need” to live a good life. The irony of Uranus in Taurus, however, is that Uranus wants to change things at a rapid pace, and Taurus wants the exact opposite. 

Nevertheless, expect there to be abrupt disruptions ahead, some of which will purposely take you outside of your comfort zone, but it’s important to remember that it’s all for the best.
