The April 20 Jupiter Uranus Conjunction Reveals Power with Earthquakes (We Predicted)

April 20, 2024, marks a rare conjunction of futurist planets Jupiter and Uranus, both in Taurus—their first meetup in the bullpen since 1941! The power of this conjunction has already made itself known with recent earthquakes. On a personal level, it’s time for your 14-year trailblazer check-up. All about the April 20 Jupiter Uranus conjunction, plus your zodiac sign’s horoscope.

As we predicted in our 2024 Horoscope planner, the Jupiter Uranus conjunction “could literally make the Earth move under our feet.”

“As groundshaking Uranus makes an exact connection to maximizer Jupiter on April 20, their conjunction in terrestrial Taurus could literally make the Earth move under our feet. Tectonic plates may shift near this date (which also arrives two weeks after a solar eclipse on April 8). People living on fault lines should get up to speed on earthquake preparedness, just to be on the safe side. Sudden natural disasters could also spark up, like a Uranus-ruled electrical storm. While we certainly hope this is not the case, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

P. 11 of the The AstroTwins 2024 Horoscope, published in 2023

An earthquake struck the East Coast of the United States on April 5. The U.S. Geological Survey measured the quake as a magnitude 4.8 in New Jersey/New York with a magnitude 4.0 aftershock. The initial quake was the strongest to occur in the Northeast in more than a decade, according to the USGS, but thankfully caused no deaths, injuries or major damage.

Two days earlier, on April 3, however, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake in Taiwan, the biggest there in four decades, killed 13 people and injured more than 1,000, crumbled buildings and caused landslides.

Both April earthquakes are a reminder of the power of a Jupiter Uranus conjunction, which affects not only things on Earth, but things up high.

From now until the Summer Solstice on June 20, we could witness more rumblings, a tide-turning international alliance, or even an alien encounter. 2024 is, after all, the formal beginning of the Age of Aquarius.

The April 20 Jupiter Uranus conjunction is already proving to be, as we predicted, one of the biggest astrological events of 2024. It can feel like a “third eclipse” (following shake ups from the April 8 total solar eclipse and the March 25 Libra full moon lunar eclipse). For more on how the Jupiter Uranus conjunction can feel like another eclipse, you can hear Ophi talk about it on the April 2024 AstroTwins Radio podcast below.

A Jupiter Uranus Conjunction Is Rare and, Right on Time?

Expansive Jupiter and changemaker Uranus make contact once every 14 years, rousing our inner revolutionaries. One of your trailblazing ideas that seemed too “out there” could now be right on time.

The April 20 Jupiter Uranus conjunction (when two planets travel close together in the same zodiac sign and blend their energies) highlights two things happening with these planets right now:

1: Jupiter in Taurus

Jupiter has been traveling through Taurus since May 16, 2023. For the past year, the planet of expansion has been shaking up things in your life in big ways (and on a global scale).

But if you’ve felt like your grand plans have had a series of starts and stalls, we’re sorry to report the April 20 Jupiter Uranus conjunction may present you with further delays. Attempts to negotiate solutions could be mired in red tape and resistance. Frustration could reach an explosive tipping point.

Should a delicate compromise be found, though, you may see breakthroughs with a lasting impact.

2. Uranus in Taurus

Uranus has been in Taurus since May 15, 2018, and remains in residence until April 25, 2026. But it’s not until April 20, 2024, (the Jupiter Uranus conjunction!) that they meet for this intimate dance and rally for reform!

What to Expect at the Jupiter Uranus Conjunction

Science and technology (the domain of Uranus) could majorly refashion our day-to-day lives.

Global relations and foreign policy (Jupiter’s specialty) could be shaped in concrete ways that redefine society.

And since Taurus is an earth sign that rules the material world, the April 20 Jupiter Uranus conjunction could impact the economy (from cost of living to crypto), sustainable practices (reducing consumption and prioritizing climate solutions) and the body (from the food we eat to the ways we dress).

Trends and predictions for the Jupiter Uranus Conjunction

Below are some things we’re watching that may develop at the Jupiter Uranus conjunction. These are explored in greater detail in our above referenced 2024 Horoscope book, in which we predicted April 2024 earthquakes.

• AI reshapes the medical and wellness worlds: Near the April 20 Jupiter Uranus conjunction, we expect to see medical innovations in the field of genetics, as well as new efforts to incorporate AI into healthcare systems. Everything from routine screenings to early disease detection could soon be a screen tap away.

• New innovations in anti-aging and beauty will emerge: Breakthrough scientific inventions—hallmarks of Jupiter Uranus conjunctions—may prolong the lifespan of humans and the planet. (Here’s hoping!) Body-based Taurus is the sign of beauty while renegades Jupiter and Uranus place a high premium on youth. From youth-enhancing biohacks to cellular repair, Uranus accelerates scientific developments and Jupiter ushers them into the global marketplace.

Handcrafted and recycled goods will be in demand: Taurus governs the material world, but it’s no secret that our consumption has maxed out the planet. Fast-fashion garments, discarded by Westerners, now blanket foreign shores. Still, it’s the nature of desire to want what we can’t easily have. The demand for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind products and analog experiences will soar while these planets pulse through artful, tactile Taurus.

• Conservative and progressive values polarize further: As zealous Jupiter and radical Uranus converge in values-driven Taurus, we’re likely to see more people splinter into communities that share their beliefs and lifestyles. Thanks to the algorithms (the work of technological Uranus), our silos and echo chambers could isolate us from those whose views differ or diverge from ours. Is this a threat to democracy, or the result of it? Under this planetary paradox, both answers could be true. See also our predictions about the 2024 Election.

Personal benefits of the April 20 Jupiter Uranus Conjunction

Step into the role of visionary—or simply step OUT of the role of anything that feels confining, overly safe and too small for what you’re capable of bringing to the world.

Seize opportunity. A sudden opportunity to travel, teach or share your message could arise. Act on it!

Keep your energy field open because you could attract people who share mind-blowing resources and life-changing perspectives.

Remember, because these planets are uniting in Taurus, expect rapid developments in areas of life that the Bull rules: money and material objects, body care and all things beautiful like music and art. Taurus season (the Sun in Taurus) begins on April 19, the day before the Jupiter Uranus conjunction!
