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!
