With all of this fiery energy of the conjunction between Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, we can use a nice grounding influence to help stabilize things and make it easier for us to keep our feet in the grounds. Enter Mars in Virgo! Mars moved into Virgo in the wee hours of the (EDT) morning, encouraging organization and attention to details.
Enthusiasm and inspiration (Jupiter and Uranus) can only go so far without a plan of action and the discipline to carry it out, so Mars in Virgo can provide us with a great tool if we take advantage of it!
Astrologers everywhere have noted with glee that as Jupiter approached its exact conjunction to Uranus, Jupiter was struck by a bit of cosmic debris or an asteroid. Uranus relates to surprising or shocking events, potentially resulting in a dramatic change.
The event occurred on June 3, 2010, at 20:31 GMT and produced a large fireball that was observed by several amateur astronomers. The conjunction between Jupiter and Uranus occurs in Aries, the cardinal and arguably most fiery of the fire signs.
Jupiter began changing as the conjunction to Uranus began to approach, including losing its stripe.
The impact on Jupiter is not likely to have any significant or measurable astrological effect, but the synchronicity of the event is startling!
I return from my trip today!

On June 10, 2010 in Washington State where I live, a much tougher law regarding cell phone use when driving goes into effect and I see it as an excellent example of the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Aries smacking into Pluto in Capricorn. This law allows anyone using a cell phone while driving to be ticketed to the tune of $124 and the cops have already given notice they will NOT be handing out warnings either.
The group most likely to ignore the hazards of texting or talking on a cell phone while driving are young and male – and a pretty good fit for Jupiter conjoined Uranus in the masculine, fire sign of Aries. They tend to be convinced they are both immortal and consider themselves capable of driving with all kinds of distractions. Me, I’m over sixty, female and KNOW it is a very bad idea to do anything but pay strict attention to my driving. Heh, I have to be on high alert watching out for all those young, distracted drivers . . .

Jupiter and Uranus are preparing to conjoin in the sky, and the combination of Jupiter’s expansion with Uranian innovation has often been associated with technological and scientific advancement. Uranus is the planet that inspires “Eureka” moments where we conceive of things that were previously inconceivable.
Scientists in Maryland led by Dr. Craig Venter have now created the first living cell controlled entirely by synthetic DNA. You can find the details here.
This raises all kinds of questions – not only ethical and moral, but about the very nature of creation and life in the Universe. Perhaps the idea that humans were created through genetic manipulation millions of years ago is not so far-fetched. It also shows that science is far from being a static science – our understanding of the Universe is constantly shifting and transforming as new information comes available.
