Thursday, May 13th, Jupiter, our 5th planet from the sun and greater benefic for all born with the Sun above the horizon, enters Pisces. Pisces is a sign it rules (traditional) and co-rules (modern). Either way, you view it, Jupiter’s ingress into Pisces has been long-awaited by many. This ingress into Pisces takes Jupiter beyond the grip of Saturn in Aquarius. Is it all jolly? Well, not necessarily — but it does bring us closer to our emotional connections, closer to our great love of the arts, and movies (films), concerts, so many things will open up once again, and so many other things that we humans find enjoyable about being alive.
Jupiter in Pisces, its been over 11 years since it left this sign (the day Jupiter was in Pisces was January 22nd, 2011). Jupiter was in Pisces between January 18, 2010, to June 6, 2010, and then back into Pisces from September 9, 2010, to January 22, 2011. At that time Uranus was also in Pisces, which made for some unexpected life turns. What did you experience during that time?
The last time Jupiter was in Pisces, I was discovering astrology. Bought my first book that summer in July 2010 and massive changes in my life were unfolding which would put me on the path of where I am today. So many changes happened for me then that it will take a small book to share them all.
This time, I am a mother with a teenager, who has some key planets in Pisces — her North Node and Uranus. Uranus in her 8th (Placidus) and North Node in her 9th house. Jupiter in her chart is in Scorpio, in her 4th house, with 4 other planets. The water element is where she shines. She has the gift of rich symbolism in her dreams that reveals so much to her at a young age. I did not realize this for myself until I was much older in my thirties. Her dreams reveal many things to her in undeniable symbolism. I’ve taught her to keep a dream journal, to write them down, which helps bring it more into the physical world to consider the images, the feelings, the colors, connecting the dots of a story or theme that has much to teach and reveal letting the symbolism unfold. Our mother-daughter time is often spent going over a dream or two she had while with her father. I knew Sydney was clairvoyant when she was three, in the summer of 2010 — interesting! Though after about age six they seemed to subside for a while. Then when she was about 11 or 12, she started having dreams and they were a-m-a-z-i-n-g what it was revealing for her. She now has one notebook filled with dreams she has had since then (now age 14) and in her own writing with my guidance breaking them down to integrate the meanings for what was happening in her life then. Messages from the great beyond, specially made in her dream state just for her. It has strengthened her awe of the universe, her soul, spirit, animal messengers, and nature that it has something to share with her. Dreams and our imaginations are sure to be overflowing with new visions as Jupiter moves into Pisces.
Where is Jupiter natally for you? Water sign? This may be the year of your Jupiter return (natal Jupiter in Pisces), setting yourself free with new visions or spiritual pursuits, or perhaps just a period of time with an easier flow with new joy for life. Jupiter in Cancer natives will feel they can emerge with their families again into things they love more frequently. Jupiter in Scorpio peeps will find new zones of entanglement or learn more about themselves in their deep conversations that reach new depths. Those with Jupiter in Sagitarrius a fire sign will experience this growth with the square, but even in a square in its own sign, it helps bring support, though with different challenges. The desire to escape or go to excess is heightened. Borders are always going to be a hot topic with Sagitarrius and Pisces. What lines are being shifted?
For the other fire signs with Jupiter in Aries, it is in the blindspot the sign behind, those with Jupiter in Aries this will be like Jupiter in your 12th house. Take time preparing behind the scenes for when Jupiter returns for you, where will you take something into new beginnings? Pioneers have to work hard, dream, wake up work some more, be inspiring before they bring their genius to the world.
Those with Jupiter in Leo it is inconjunct (150 degrees) which has a harder time seeing eye-to-eye there’s some kind of rub. Leo Jupiter is king, so it doesn’t like to allow a spiritual or higher mind to take the spotlight. The best kings know the source of their glory. Earth signs Jupiter in Taurus folks receive support and growth by the sextile. Beauty matters and Jupiter in Pisces supports this value that Jupiter in Taurus holds. Jupiter in Virgo natives experience this Jupiter in Pisces by the opposition. It might be a tug-o-war, but actually, it is experienced as bouncing between the polarities back and forth (which can be a bit tiring when you consider it is Jupiter). Jupiter in Pisces would dominate the energy play being that it is in the sign it rules. Jupiter in Gemini is a square and with the North Node there still what is the obstacle that presents? With Jupiter in Pisces, one could argue that lack of boundaries is going to be an issue this year. Illusions that are still running rampant so much excess. Flooding could be an issue that is quite real this fall season and early next year. Jupiter in Pisces won’t know when to go home from the party. For folks with Jupiter in Libra, it is inconjunct (six signs away) so again there will be a challenge to balance something. Social justice voices can be harder to hear because of some other noise that surfaces from the depths (Pisces + Neptune). Fixed Air Aquarius natal Jupiter folks might be sad their Jupiter return is over. Natives with Jupiter in Capricorn experience it as a sextile, visionaries will get in sync with those that will make it real. There is excitement around a vision, to build something that is tangible, one will support the dreams of the other.
It may be hard to give this Jupiter in Pisces borders, that is not Pisces — it is more free-flowing, nebulous, and imaginative! For those with an abundance of water in their chart, this will be a more pleasant experience.
We all experience planets by our natal position of each planet (house and sign), the houses the planet rules and what is activated and amplified to manifest in our lives, and also through transits the planet activates aspects with other planets in our chart or by transits or progressions. Consider your birth chart where is Pisces? Where is Sagittarius? These are the signs Jupiter rules. But we all have a specific sign for Jupiter and that paints the way it operates for us individually.
If you are wondering what Jupiter in Pisces is for YOU — contact me for an astrology consultation to best understand HOW to actively create more abundance, harmony, and simple joys in your life that may have felt harder to reach in the past year and a half. Life opens new paths — can you see the way?
Namaste. Bless this moment.
