The Biggest Astrological Event of 2024 Is Happening in April

Reported by POPSUGAR:

If it feels like you could be on the edge of stepping into a whole new, thrilling chapter of your life, it could be because Jupiter conjuncts Uranus this year for the first time since 2011. As one of the most major astrological events of 2024, this celestial meet-up involves Jupiter, the planet of abundance, fortune, and expansion, joining forces with Uranus, the planet of sudden, electrifying change, rebellion, and revolution.

In astrology, a conjunction involves two planets coming together in not only the same sign but an exact degree of that sign. On April 20, Jupiter will conjunct Uranus at 21 degrees of the fixed earth sign Taurus, inspiring a whole new cycle of spiritual breakthroughs and innovation, as well as surprising financial wins and relationship changes. That’s because Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of romance and money.

The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction of 2024 also sets the tone for the next 14 years in terms of how you may express yourself artistically and celebrate what makes you unique. That said, just like any major astrological event, this planetary pairing will not only affect society as a whole, but it’ll hit a particular spot in your own astrological birth chart, bringing eye-opening change.

What Is the Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction of 2024?

In astrology, lucky Jupiter is considered the “Great Benefic” — aka the most fortunate, blessings-bringing, and growth-supporting planet. Uranus, on the other hand, spurs sudden turns of event, shocking epiphanies, and creative and scientific genius. When the two come together — roughly after 14 years — the stage is set for major excitement and change, ideally tied to newfound abundance. Because Jupiter and Uranus will be conjunct in fixed earth sign Taurus, the planetary pairing could amplify areas of life that are associated with the sign of the Bull and its ruler, Venus, which oversees art, beauty, values, earning, and relationships.

In other words, depending on which house in astrology the conjunction hits your birth chart, you might get an out-of-the-blue promotion, meet someone new, feel like you’re embarking on a new era with a significant other, or kick off a super-fulfilling artistic endeavor.

It also bears noting that this event is pretty rare. The last time Jupiter and Uranus paired up was in 2011, and after this year, Jupiter and Uranus won’t be conjunct again until 2037.

When Does Jupiter Conjunct Uranus?

Jupiter will meet up with Uranus on April 20, 2024 at 10:27 p.m. ET/7:27 p.m. PT. Although that’s the point at which the astrological aspect is considered “exact,” you’ll be able to feel its effects from the middle of March to the middle of May, as the planets will be traveling close to one another during that window.

What Sign Is the Jupiter-Uranus Conjunct in 2024?

On April 20, 2024, Jupiter and Uranus will be conjunct at 21 degrees of Taurus, the fixed earth sign known for being grounded, sensual, pleasure-seeking, and occasionally somewhat obstinate. Adding to the rarity of this event: The last time the two met up in Taurus was nearly 83 years ago in May 1941.
