HOW TO FIGURE OUT where transiting Jupiter amp Saturn are in your chart, and what they are impacting.

This is a how-to for figuring out how to see what’s happening with the Great Conjunction (transiting jupiter and saturn) in your chart. [Here’s the chart for the conjunction](, (set in Washington DC – houses depend on your own location for the event chart, which is a different thing than how it is working in your natal chart).***This is NOT about answering personal chart questions like “it’s in my 6th house, what does that mean?”*** It’s to show you how to figure it out yourself: Where it is, What it’s impacting. Please keep questions to the instructions themselves. And keep in mind the conjunction has been overhyped, and try to just look into its impact like you would any transit.

Do take advantage of the post u/millymichelle wrote on how this conjunction can operate in each house: [What the Great Conjunction Means For You](

And to get a better understanding of the Great Conjunction, go to the first half of [this post]( and read the [Isar Astrology article]( there.

***Finding transit aspects the conjunction is making.***

Transiting Jupiter and Saturn are at **0 degrees Aquarius**. So we look for direct impacts to the natal chart to figure out if they are actually transiting (touching by exact degree) any of our natal planets:

Look for any natal planets with their degree position at or very close to 0 degrees.

* Natals at 0 aquarius receive a conjunction (0-degree aspect
* Natals at 0 capricorn and 0 pisces receive a semi-sextile (30-degree aspect, inconjunct—not sextile– family of aspects)
* Natals at 0 sagittarius and 0 aries get a sextile (60-degree aspect)
* Natals at 0 taurus and 0 scorpio get a square (90-degree aspect)
* Natals at 0 libra and 0 gemini get a trine (120-degree aspect)
* Natals at 0 virgo and 0 cancer get a quincunx (150-degree aspect)
* Natals at 0 leo get an opposition (180-degree aspect)

Now, we have to look at 15 degrees of just 4 of the signs, to find semi-squares and sesquisquares transits:

* · Natals at 15 sagittarius and 15 pisces get a semisquare (a 45-degree aspect).
* · Natals at 15 gemini and 15 virgo get sesquisquares (a 135-degree aspect).

The best book to have on hand for all transits is Robert Hand’s **Planets In Transit**. It covers every transiting planet in each of the major aspects, with each natal planet, as well as describing each transiting planet in each house. Can be found pretty cheap, used. You should also be able to find transit descriptions at []( and [](

***To google for aspect meanings.***

Here’s how (filling in the appropriate aspect and planet for you). It’s important to put “transiting saturn” and “transiting jupiter” in quotes, so that you get descriptions of the transit, and not of a natal placement. Examples:

* “transiting saturn” square sun
* “transiting jupiter” trine mercury

***Finding what house it’s in.***

To figure out what house (area of life) the conjunction is impacting, you must do your chart in Whole sign houses. This is a setting on any good chart making site ( and, usually in a “house system” drop down menu. By using whole sign houses, I can know exactly what house 0 Aquarius (the position of the conjunction) is in. This will not work with Placidus houses.

Now, we can see by your rising (asc) sign which house the conjunction occurs in. Understand that transiting saturn will be in this house for a little under 2 and a half years, and transiting jupiter will be here for about a year. Each house has a link describing it – just ignore the horary and mundane sections of the descriptions as they won’t apply to you. Remember: transiting Saturn will be in the house for a bit under 2 1/2 years, and Jupiter for 1 year.

* Aries asc: conjunction is in [11th house](
* Taurus asc: in [10th house](
* Gemini asc: in [9th house](
* Cancer asc: in [8th house](
* Leo asc: in [7th house](
* Virgo asc: in [6th house](
* Libra asc: in [5th house](
* Scorpio asc: in [4th house](
* Sagittarius asc: in [3rd house](
* Capricorn asc: in [2nd house](
* Aquarius asc: in [1st house](
* Pisces asc: in [12th house](

Remember that to google for the meaning of a transiting planet in a house, put “transiting saturn” in quotes, then add the words: *in 4th house*, for example. This will give you the correct *transiting* description vs a natal description (different things).

Hope this helps! Please keep any questions to the instructions themselves, not personal chart questions (per the sub’s rules).
