                Not really.

                I have Jupiter in Aries (ruler of my 8th and co-ruler
                of my 11th) sextile Saturn in Aquarius (ruler of my
                9th and 10th houses) natally, and secondary progressed
                Saturn has been separating from sextile to my natal
                Jupiter for quite some time (using an orb of 1 00' for
                progressed aspect).

                I have Sualocin (Alpha Delphini) aligned with Saturn
                natally and the alignment is still in effect by
                secondary progression, though I don't know what that
                has to do with this situation. Hopefully nothing
                negative.

                  Does Jupiter in Aries bring out a bit of despot in you? being an
                  aries myself I understand that feeling, but having the judge there,
                  I"m thinking that could be a damper on the jupiterian jovial type
                  response to your nature, And probably makes you very irritated by
                  any restrictive influences? can you tell I like peeking at charts,.

                    One fellow born on 16th of December:

                    Sir Arthur Charles Clarke, CBE (born 16 December 1917)just turned 90 the 16th of December. He is a British science-fiction author, inventor, and futurist, most famous for his novel 2001: A Space Odyssey, and for collaborating with director Stanley Kubrick on the film of the same name. Clarke is the last surviving member of what was sometimes known as the "Big Three" of science fiction, which included Robert A. Heinlein and Isaac Asimov.

                    btw. my Jupiter is also in Aries, I think that it could mean in my case (with the Moon) a want or need to explore unknown new realms..

                      He's got Mars aligned with Denebola (Beta Leonis) (science-fiction is
                      sort of an outsiders' genre still), Saturn aligned with Dubhe (Alpha
                      Ursae Majoris), and possibly Mercury aligned with Vega (Alpha Lyrae),
                      which might give him an entertaining way of writing.

                          Cutting through to the truth? He foresaw the use of satellites long
                          before Sputnik 1, for example.

                          Saturn aligned with Dubhe: He lives in the middle of that long-running
                          civil war in Sri Lanka (so freaking stupid). Maybe that's it.
