Re: Jupiter opposite Venus. Am I a walking contradiction?
Basically it means that you have two planets in mutual reception. This is helpful.
Many people have oppositions in their chart. If you have a lot of them bunched up together, it is called a "see-saw" chart pattern.
With the opposition, just look for ways to reconcile the planets' different needs and operating modes. Taurus likes stability. Sagittarius likes adventure. Venus is about what you find attractive and what you attract (and whom). Jupiter is your sense of faith and optimism. It rules long-distance, travel philosophy, religion, and other mind-broadening endeavours.
Since both planets are benefic, their opposition shouldn't be too difficult.
