SUN SQUARE JUPITER
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.
It is important to understand that the Sun rules the identity, ego, individuality, power and pride, while 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.
The theme of this aspect is, "Ill gotten gain." A square to Jupiter behaves as though it is a challenge from Saturn, even though it is a square to Jupiter. It is felt the same way. This is because there is a lack of discipline and responsibility toward gain and extravagance. The individual wants too much, too fast, without considering the consequences or responsibility of such gain and extravagance.
There is an overly optimistic and idealistic approach to life, which is prone to excessive behavior and can be egotistical. Positively, there is the ability to reach goals.
This aspect reveals that kindness in the individual who takes on more than is expected. The individual may lack moderation in just about anything they do. In many ways, this aspect reveals an extremist.
This can cause the individual to expect too much on themselves and sometimes expect too much of others, yet the individual always has good intentions. Full of vitality, this aspects knows how to have a good time and let go. Even if the individual has a sobering and laid back nature, this aspect provides a certain verve and good spirit.
There is a lot of the wheeler-dealer in this aspect because the expansiveness of Jupiter marks the nature.
The most negative side of this aspect is that self-indulgence may cause physical problems. Food (especially rich foods), drink, and pleasure must be balanced by moderation with sufficient rest.
