Transit Jupiter Conjunct Ascendant: Expand Your Self-Image

jupiter conjunct ascendant

Jupiter symbolizes expansion, reward and success.  Ascendant represents your self-image.  Jupiter conjunct Ascendant invites you to begin a new course of action in order to grow as the person you’d like to become.

Jupiter Conjunct Ascendant: a New Cycle of Personal Growth

In movies, success comes at the end of the story, and people live happily ever after. In life, success almost always is a beginning of a new journey.  Jupiter crossing your Ascendant is sometimes accompanied by success. Whether it does so or not, you’ll benefit from this time period through sowing new seeds of intention for your personal growth.

Examples of Success and New Beginning During Transit Jupiter Conjunct Ascendant

Jupiter’s orbit is 12 years, so the “planet of reward” conjoins each planet and Angle in your horoscope once every 12 years. While not all Jupiter transit to the Ascendant will coincide with breakthroughs and huge successes, they often suggest a beginning of the success to come.  See these well known examples:

1) In October 2009, president Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize.  Transiting Jupiter was conjunct his Ascendant exactly within 1 degree.  Many people including the president himself saw the award as a “call to action” in the upcoming future, rather than the reward of past achievements.

2) When Oprah Winfrey first began hosting a low-rated morning show called AM Chicago, transiting Jupiter was about to conjoin her Ascendant. Within a matter of months, AM Chicago became the number one rated morning show in America, and later was renamed Oprah Winfrey show.  For Oprah, transit Jupiter conjunct Ascendant marked a relatively humble beginning for an avalanche of success to come.

3) Pamela Anderson was discovered during a football game in the Summer of 1989. Within a few months she was selected as the cover model for October 1989 issue of Playboy magazine. Transiting Jupiter was conjunct her Ascendant in June 1989, and then went on to conjoin her Sun in September of ’89.  Again, transiting Jupiter crossing Ascendant was marking a beginning of a new career, which would give her a brand new self-image.

 

Sowing a New Intention for Growth: How to Work with Jupiter Conjunct Ascendant

When transiting Jupiter crosses your natal Ascendant, you may find it useful to ask yourself “What new path is opening before me? What kind of person do I want to become? Looking back at the past 12 years, what old habits and thought patterns can I leave behind?”

Asking yourself these questions during this transit can help you respond positively to the opportunities and reward that are present in your life.

  1. Hi Hiroki
    Thank you for another great blog.
    In January this year Jupiter crossed my early Aquarius midheaven and I started a new job.
    I concur 100% with your comment that this was the start of something, not my final 'reward'.
    I had to find a new job out of necessity rather than desire, due to being laid off from my former job. I was also having Tr. Saturn conj Pluto and it turns out that my boss has this conjunction in his natal chart. The job is some sense feels like a prison sentence rather than a reward!

  2. Hiroki Niizato says:

    Thank you for sharing your experience! What happens is that transiting Jupiter often acts as a "trigger" to release the heavier transit that's going on at the same time, thereby releasing its potential (in your case, tr Saturn conjunct Pluto, which certainly fits your description of the new job.) All the same this was a good time to set a new intention about your work.

    Much appreciated,
    Hiroki

  3. Hiroki…Excellent article, well written, easy to understand, great application of principles. I plan to read more of your articles because I like the way you apply/write. Jupiter/Neptune are conjunct my natal Jupiter in my 9th. I am a 35-year Florida astrologer as well and have recently published a book and invite you to visit my own book website for a free sample: http://www.presidentsofhopeandchange.com

    Dear Marilyn,

    Thank you very much for your kind words, and congratulations for publishing a very impressive work! The brief look I took showed me that it is written with care and insights, and is a major contribution to the astrology of political development in USA – great job!

    How perfect it is that it's happening along with the 9th house Jupiter return…

    Wishing you the best success for your book,
    Hiroki

  5. Hiroki, loved this uplifting article. I like yourself have Pisces Ascendant so I am almost waiting with baited breathe to see what transpires next year (its 7 deg and it will opp Pluto which sits on my Desc) in Jan. Would be interested knowing how different a transit is when it just sails on by your degree vs if you have a degree it goes back & forwards over, wonder if it has a different effect? Cheers Lise :^)

  6. Hiroki Niizato says:

    Thank you Lise,

    Let me know what you find out!

    It sounds like this could potentially be a time of sowing some powerful intentions.

    Along with Pluto, you would also consider the significance of any heavier transit that is going on at the same time.

    Best wishes,
    Hiroki

    Hi,

    Having jupiter in capricorn, luck doesn't seem to "arrive" for that jupiterian boost others experience. When it crosses my asc in capricorn nothing seems different than before. It's all about work, no luck no matter where jupiter shows up.

    Would like to feel a real jupiter hit one day. Thank you for the post.

    Dear Hans,

    Thank you for sharing your Jupiter experience. It may be that a productive use of these periods would be to set some positive goals and intentions related to your work (which must yield their rewards later on at the right time.)

    Best regards,
    Hiroki

  9. Dear Hiroki
    Thank you so much for your fascinating blog. I am enjoying to read it.
    I suppose that Transiting Jupiter will conjunct your Ascendant in April 2010… How do you think.. and what kinds of plans do you have?

    Sincerely,
    Chinatsu

  10. My 2nd comment. Your article stimulated my mental juices and I wondered what each return meant for me over the years (I'm up there in years), sort of a personal journey of Jupiter returns. Thought it might be a great example of useful for other astrologers, particularly students.
    I was born with Jup 22 Aqu 38 in my 9th. I will be 71 years old on Halloween, with the finish of my 6th Jupiter return occurring Dec 12. (Jupiter’s orbit is 11.88 years, not quite an even 12 and that does add up over time.)
    Age 12 1950: On stage, singing and dancing my way as a 40s to 50s Hollywood child star hopeful. I was reasonably good and won a lot of contests during this transit.
    Age 24 1962: Wife, mother of three, major move of household,
    Age 36 1974: Single mother of four, working, trade school to better our circumstance.
    Age 48 1986: Head of metaphysical/astrological school, church, teacher, national speaker, writer.
    Age 60 1998: Business manager for daughter’s international sports magazine, associate editor, columnist, worked with writers, photographers, coaches, athletes world-wide plus international competition venues.
    Age 71 I have just published my first book as this Jup/Nep conj transits my natal Jupiter: Presidents of Hope and Change. My natal Jupiter is conjunct the USA Moon within 2 minutes. I have four other books in production.
    Now, does that sound like an active Jupiter?

    Dear Chinatsu,

    No big plans at the moment :)

  12. Hiroki Niizato says:

    Dear Marilyn,

    This is excellent! Thank you so much for sharing your experience of the Jupiter cycles over the years…True to 9th house Jupiter we see clearly the themes of spirituality, publication, academia and internationalism.

    Very impressive (both the measurements and your accomplishments)! And illuminating too…

    Much appreciated,
    Hiroki

  16. oh, i hope its not too late to comment; i am just finding this particular post. could you relate some pointers on what it means for jupiter to be crossing one’s DC? (my t.jupiter is now just inside my 7th and my natal is just inside the last degrees of its home in the 9th ruled by cancer.)

  17. ah, thank you. i shall go and ponder that now. :)

  18. 12th house virgo says:

    When Jupiter last transited my Midheaven, I started my career in earnest – got a great job and doubled my salary. When it transited my AC, I was pregnant with my first/only child. How’s that for expansion of self, lol? Its approaching my MH again, so time to think about what path is opening for me now. Thanks for the great article.

  19. that was intriguing, especially given transiting jupiter is approaching my natal ascendant. but did i miss your follow-up report regarding jupiter’s pass over your pisces ascendant “next spring”?

    thank you very much.

  20. Very interesting.
    Right now, Jupiter is conjunct my midheaven in leo.
    I have a job now that is a great salary, but nothing i’d like to make as a career.
    I’m using this job to pay for the acting classes, college and new apartment I intend to use as a future career.

    Great relief with this transit, since the last months, I’ve been hit hard with Saturn conjunct my moon in first house (I’ve been in the process of moving away from family)
    A new chapter and growth in my life indeed.
