Venus conjunct Jupiter brings the two benefics together which you would think could only be a good thing. This is true to a certain extent, but it really depends how these planets are configured in the chart. Are either of them dignified? Are they powerful in angular houses? Sometimes their pairing can be a case of too much of a good thing. Ask yourself these questions before you assume this aspect will give the subject all the blessings it promises!
One thing this aspect will most probably give them however, (for better or for worse) is a very active social life. If the subject is not hosting lavish parties then they will be going to them. This is a very popular combination where Venus conjunct Jupiter will be attracted to charismatic partners and usually be part of the glitterati, in whatever field they inhabit.
‘A’ List Socialites
Usually people will gravitate towards their warm and generosity and they are natural ‘feel-good’ hosts. (Though I’m not sure how ‘warm’ Mussolini and Genghis Khan would be (see below), still, I’m sure they would be entertaining…) The danger with this aspect of course will be indulgence and over-spending as these folk generally adore luxury goods and high status accessories.
There are of course exceptions to maxing-out on the credit card, since Jupiter can also be learning and religion. In this case the subject is less materialistic, but puts all their passion into spirituality and travel. Venus conjunct Jupiter may spend all their money on airfares while traveling in rags. This is more likely when the aspect is in Sagittarius or the 9th house, so again check the placement.
