Mars conjunct Jupiter can have us feeling revved up and eager to embark on some new adventure or course of action. Mars wants to move forward, and Jupiter wants to expand. This can be extremely helpful but can, on occasion, result in reckless behavior or have us overestimating our abilities.
Mars is related to energy, pure and simple. Mars is associated with courage, daring, drive, ambition, anger, and libido. Mars is fast-moving and can be reckless.
Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. It is associated with travel, expansion, enthusiasm, generosity, education, religion, beliefs, and the law. In older forms of astrology, Jupiter was called the Greater Benefic, meaning it was considered the luckiest planet (especially if you were born during the day).
Planets are conjunct when they are 0° apart (usually in the same sign). When looking at transits (as opposed to natal astrology), we typically allow an orb (allowance) of 1°, so planets that are 0° to 1° degree apart are considered conjunct.
Conjunctions represent a blending of the energies of the planets involved. When the planets involved are complementary to each other, this is likely to work well. When the qualities of the planets involved are diametrically different, there is likely to be more tension involved.
