Astrologers tell people that Jupiter brings a benefit and invariably they are going to win the lottery. The lottery has more to do with Pluto (other people’s money) than it has to do with Jupiter (vision, expansion, religion / spirituality, perspective, outdoor sports and higher education). Winning the lottery is also shocking and unexpected which suggests a Uranus component. Jupiter does rule luck but I think you can see that Jupiter alone is not going to bring you windfall money except in rare cases.
Jupiter with Saturn promises, the harder you work, the luckier you get. If you do get lucky under this transit, you can be sure it’s deserved but what you really want to do is discipline yourself to seek the opportunity.
For example, you can travel. International travel is best but if this is not possible, you can still travel outside sphere in order to expand your perspective. Spend a day with someone whose beliefs are different than yours and see what you can learn. Take a class. What do your elders (Saturn) believe (Jupiter)? If you are an elder, what can you teach and how can you learn more?
As for the larger cycle between these planets, when the planets are conjunct a person will commit (Saturn) to their vision (Jupiter). Six years later, when the planets oppose you can see how you’re doing.
As an example, I left my original blog and committed to this one, six years ago. At this point I can see how far I have come (or how badly I have failed). If I find the courage to look at the cold reality of this and to judge it (Saturn), I will be provided an opportunity (Jupiter).
My parenting (Saturn) is another focus. How is it going? What adjustments can I make that will benefit (Jupiter) the parent – child relationship over the long term (Saturn)?
I realize I made this sound like like a lot of work but hey. Saturn is involved here and you’re only going to get what you have coming. The upside of that is that there is an upside of that.
Is there something in your life that could be improved by carefully considering that which can be seen by taking a broad overview? Tell us.
