Count your lucky stars because on April 11th, 2023, we have the fated meeting of the Sun and Jupiter.
Traditionally in astrology, this is known as a lucky day where we may receive some good news or a gift of abundance from the Universe however, on an intuitive level, there is something deeper at play.
While Jupiter meeting the Sun is a beautiful and positive aspect, it also works to expand and highlight areas of our lives that need some extra love. Jupiter meeting the Sun can also expose and pull back the curtain on where we are not living up to our fullest potential.
Jupiter, The Planet of Expansion
Jupiter is considered a lucky planet, but more than that, it is considered the planet of expansion. It can expand and highlight things that are important or noteworthy for us to pay attention to.
The Sun represents the core of who we are, so when Jupiter and the Sun align, it helps to expand a part of ourselves, it helps to open up new gifts and talents, and it helps to showcase a path or direction we can take in our lives.
Think of Jupiter and the Sun coming together to expand your being and to create space and lightness in your heart and in your life.
If challenges do come your way on this day, this energy will help us to tap into positivity, abundance, and joy with more ease, and will make it easier to see the brighter side of things.
My Experience with Jupiter and the Sun
When I first moved to Los Angeles, I interned at a production company. It was demanding and high-pressure, but I enjoyed meeting new people and seeing how the entertainment industry worked. I was also really getting into astrology at this point, so I remember when the day of Jupiter and the Sun rolled around that year, I wanted to stop and pay attention to any ‘luck’ that might have come my way.
That day in the office, I started sharing that this day was supposed to be lucky. Everyone was surprisingly open to my astrological prediction and was keen to know more. In fact, that day, I ended up pulling up people’s charts and giving them mini astrology readings!
At the end of the day, I went home trying to piece together what lucky messages the Universe may have been delivering to me, and while I didn’t piece it together then, I did think how fun it was that I got to do those readings.
Now flash forward a few years, and well, the rest is history! So, as you can see, Jupiter and the Sun opened up a possibility on that day. It took years before I would make anything of it and realize my path with astrology, but it was a possibility that was presented nonetheless.
This is the type of gift that may be presented on a day like this. Think of the meeting of the Sun and Jupiter as expanding an opportunity or opening up a gateway. It is then up to you to run with it and create your own luck!
