JUPITER’S TRANSIT OF PISCES : 29 DECEMBER 2021 – 10 MAY 2022 & 29 OCTOBER – 21 DECEMBER 2022
On December 29th Jupiter ingresses into Pisces, marking Jupiter’s return to his ruling sign after a very short toe dip into Pisces from 14 May – 28 July 2021. 2021 was a small taste of Jupiter’s influence and favour; his retrograde back into Aquarius for the rest of the year delayed this transit getting any real progress past the 2 degree’s point. Jupiter, last transited Pisces from 19 Jan 2010 -7 June 2010 & 10 Sep -23 Jan 2011. Looking back to what made that timeframe unique helps to inform how this transit might manifest.
Like all astrology, these transits are cycles of time that have certain tones and themes that help define or bookend life under there cycles of times. Jupiter when transiting Pisces is a strong and defining cycle thanks to Jupiter being in his rulership in Pisces. Jupiter gets to do all the things he likes doing, under his terms. A wonderful change from the past two years where Jupiter was under the rulership and in the domain of Saturn and all his rules and restrictions. The last time Jupiter was in his rulership was 2019 during his transit of Sagittarius, Zeus’ other ruling sign. 2019 wasn’t too bad a year from most accounts.
Jupiter embodies hope, vision, expansion, optimism, belief’s, truth, morals, justice, travel, righteousness, lessons, teachers, philosophies to name a few. Jupiter looks out far and wide to navigate and seek truth and wisdom for the ‘betterment’ of people and humanity. Jupiter is enthusiastic and always seeks truth. Jupiter can have its downfalls for example there is a tendency to over-do it or only see the positives; however, as the greater benefic Jupiter gets a pretty good wrap in Astrology, when he is in his ruling sign, Jupiter excels.
Pisces is a mutable water sign noted for its depth and ability to adjust and evolve. Pisces is an extremely intuitive sign with an energetic quality which is both transcendent and encompassing. Pisces meets Jupiter in its ‘bigness’ but not all of Piscean energy can be seen or rationally explained. Pisces energy likes to encompass the all. Artistic expression and artistry are also dynamic Piscean qualities.
When Jupiter and Pisces meet, we get to submerge and bath in its waters as we attempt to find or create wholeness in a what feels like the most fractured of times and situations. Will the dams burst open ? Will all the pent-up water or emotion begin to flow during this transit? Perhaps. This transit is great for compassion and creativity as we work through the fall out of the past two years. Jupiter while in Pisces helps to smooth over some of the rough edges and carve out a space for compassion allowing to connect more deeply to the area of life that Pisces lords over in your chart.
Neptune is co-present with Jupiter in Pisces during this transit, in April it will be making some powerful aspects which heightens sensitives and creativity but also has the potential to dive too deep into escapism and delusion. A separate post to come on this topic however it’s good to be aware of April’s potential for the above themes and topics.
This aspect will be one of the highlights of 2022’s astrological calendar but it will not be working alone. Saturn will still be in Aquarius (also in its rulership) working to a different end in other aspects of astrological landscapes and Mars will also be strong during this Jupiter transit. Where some aspects of your life will feel feed and nourished. Other areas will require you to do the work or will require focus and work hard. These energies will work simultaneously.
Jupiter’s transit of Pisces will be a nice softening and breaking up of the more difficult transits we are coming out of, but it won’t be the only thing at play during 2022. Harnessing and indulging into where Jupiter offers you lesson’s, compassion, transcendence and an opportunity to expand both in optimism and intuition; will be a good thing after two years of rigid contraction and repression. Allowing us to tap into the reservoirs of our soul for regeneration and rejuvenation rather than just for survival.
