Mars trine Jupiter: time to act is now

Mars trine Jupiter Image by Autumn Sky Morrison.

On 17 April we have a lovely energy as Mars trines Jupiter and both form sextiles with transiting Mercury. During Mars trine Jupiter good fortune is smiling on you. It’s time to go after your heart’s desire. Your decision making and communication are likely to be spot on as well.

However a square from Mercury to Pluto on the same day may cause you to obsess over things, and with Mercury in Aries you may get caught up in anger. Let it go. There is far too much potential good fortune to be had on this day to get caught up in negativity.

Mars trine Jupiter is exact on 17 April but will be in effect for several days on either side of that date. During this time acting on opportunities that come our way is likely to have very good results.

Be on the look out: you never know where the next clue will appear. Perhaps it’s that person who strikes up a conversation on the bus, the article that catches your eye as you’re browsing or an invitation to a social occasion. Don’t let it pass you by!

Whatever you do don’t sit around waiting for this opportunity to fall in your lap. Jupiter is all about expansion and Mars is the principle of action and desire, so Mars trine Jupiter will have very little impact if you spend your time watching TV and wondering when all the good fortune is going to arrive. You have to take the initiative. This is a masculine energy. It’s all about self assertion, decisive action and going after what you want.

During Mars trine Jupiter good fortune is smiling on you. It’s time to go after your heart’s desire.

  1. Weee!!! I sure welcome this transit! I have Scorpio in 9th house, a stelliuum with the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter in Scorpio at 19-20 degrees too, and Jupiter is transiting the 7th house. I’m on the hunt for a job these days, after being fores January 25 when Mercury went direct), so this should prove promising, eh?

    So…partner stuff (also in the form of opportunities through partnerships) – and 9th house stuff that benefits my stellium of planets would be on the agenda now, right? I’ve always had trouble deciphering the 9th house energies, maybe because they are so deeply ingrained in my personality LOL ;-)

    • You got it Anette :) 9th House is all about personal expansion, so travel, education, study and putting yourself into contact with other perspectives and cultures. The 9th is Jupiter’s own house so this is especially fortuitous. x

  2. Faith, I am not sure if this is going to help me in anyway personally as I am an April 5 Aries but I have my mom in Cancer, husband in Capricorn and son in Pisces. All four of us in the family are in different places due to different reasons. I am joining my husband end of the month and currently looking for job opportunities where he is. I am out of work since September 2014. I could not join anywhere as I was taking care of my mom who is aged. Now she’s moved into a hospice as it is very difficult to take care of her at home.

    • Hi Gee… I’m glad to hear you are finally rejoining your husband and hope that your mother is contented in her new home. I had a look at your chart and this transit does not affect you personally, but it sounds like things are slowly moving in the right direction. All the best, Faith

  3. Hi Faith, looking at my progressed chart Mars and Jupiter are moving across my 9th and 11th Houses – Jupiter across 9th, Mars across 11th

  4. Loving reading your work. Question: how do we figure out what house transits etc are happening in? Thanks susan

    • Hi Susan, good question. So, say you want to know which house Jupiter is transiting in your chart. Well we know that Jupiter is in Aquarius so you look at your natal chart and you see which house Aquarius is on the cusp of. Maybe the 4th House cusp is at 15 Aquarius and Jupiter is at 28 degrees Aquarius so we know that Jupiter is transiting your 4th House. X
