I picked up this Juniper yesterday where some guys where digging for a new telecom enclosure, they told me I could take one of the junipers they had removed.
Any suggestions on styling?

I do see possibilities. Semi-cascade seems an option.

However, as you picked it up only yesterday, styling it should not be your priority. First make sure it's happy in it's new environment.

Thank you Auk, yes I am going to let it get established before doing anything to it.

As all branches grow to the same side (left side if the trunk is positioned upright), and the opposite side of the main branch is bare, I see three more possibilities:
1-) Raft style, if you tilt down the tree to make the main branch parallel to the soil, semi-buried.
2-) Windswept to the side the branches grow ( difficult style, not for beginners).
3-) Forest planting where this tree would be almost upright, and another lower tree composing the image of a single twin trunk tree with ramification to the opposite side (right side in this case).
