JUPITER SQUARE SATURN
This aspect is a seat of inner tensions. The tension of the square gives us motivation. Squares are dynamic aspects that give us the drive to succeed. What begins as an inner problem is overcome or accepted, and then becomes a door to understanding.
Jupiter is lucky, adventurous and abundant. Jupiter is very benevolent, generous and philanthropic. Jupiter rules religion and higher education. Saturn rules the father, limitations and authority figures. Saturn restricts, holds back, stabilizes and limits.
Jupiter is so lucky and wonderful that you would think nothing could mess with or halt its Goodness, but Saturn is a strong influence in this aspect combination, which causes challenges in the area of business and/or financial affairs. This aspect indicates a lack, of or even misfortune, in these areas and where opportunities are few and far between. I take times like this to mean energy should be spent somewhere else.
When this aspect is present, it is NOT a good time to start something new especially if it has anything to do with finances or business. Actually, the way to make this aspect good is to buckle down and get things straightened up and sorted out so that you can start something new on the next New Moon. That then would be a perfect use of this aspect. See the 2016 Lunar Phase Calendar I would most certainly use this aspect as a 'new beginning' in the way of straightening myself up and flying right, rather than starting a new business.
This aspect should be used as a 'scared straight' influence more than anything else. Now listen, you know I do not write scary astrology and that is not what I am saying with this aspect. I'm just saying you could use this aspect as a 'reality check' in order to sober you up financially and business-wise so that you stop making bad decisions. Remember, the more you are conscious, the more you will realize when you are unconscious. This aspect uses itself to sober you up or scare you into submission. Do you really need that or can you straighten up on your own?
This aspect has a tendency to make faulty decisions and plan ahead using outrageous ideas or just flat out unattainable goals. It sounds ridiculous and far-fetched more than it sounds real. The real thing to do would be to stop trying to convince yourself of something outlandish and instead act in a more mature and fitting way. This aspect reminds me of the individual who always has a shortcut or some get rich quick scheme. I think to myself, "Oh for heaven's sake, just get to work like the rest of us, will ya'?"
The Saturn restrictor influence on Jupiter the expander puts the squeeze on business and financial affairs. Business and financial are closely linked here because Saturn naturally rules the 10th house of career and business. Jupiter is the abundant, expansive and financially fortunate planet. There is a lack of initiative and confidence to really grab hold of an opportunity and make something of it. While the individual might try to convince themselves or others that their get rich quick scheme will work, neither really believe it.
There just isn't enough discipline or the right discipline here to make anything work EXCEPT snap the person out of their schemes and get their Life back on track. One must realize that there has to be sufficient preparation in order to make success work in both business and financial affairs. Get rich quick schemes are NOT going work under this influence. The person who signs up with a multi-level marketing (MLM) company under this influence will likely never get their branch or tier of the multi-level off the ground. In fact, I would roll the dice and say, "I don't think so."
This aspect is just bad timing no matter how you slice it. Again, the best thing to do is straighten out your Life before you embark on a new business or financial venture or adventure. Trust me on this. While Saturn does rule longevity and long-term goals, the square to Jupiter is not going to let the long-term plan manifest because of the fault in the stars. What will happen is the individual who plans a new business or venture under this aspect will end up becoming a slave to it. In other words, the venture will feel like oppression more than anything else.
It won't take long before the individual 'using this aspect' ends up having a very poor idea about their own abilities and will tend to put themselves down. My advice is don't compare yourself to others. There is no one else like you and if you don't compare, you will end up doing things rightly for yourself, not someone else.
Believe in your own abilities and do not expect recognition from others. Work to reward yourself. This will keep you on your intended path with a sober and clear mind rather than a fantastical outrageous mind. This aspect does reveal issues with self-esteem. There could be a parental influence that may contribute to this lack of confidence. I say this because Jupiter is the higher octave of the Moon and the Moon rules the mother. Saturn rules the authority figure and the father. Do you see why there is a strong parental influence here. Those with this aspect in their natal chart may never get the approval from their parents that they so desperately want or deserve.
