Jupiter in Pisces 2022

Jupiter in Pisces 2022

“Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the ‘Titanic’ that waved off the dessert cart.”

  ~ Erma Bombeck

Typically, I don’t like to think about the movie Titanic, because my older brother looks quite a bit like Leonardo DiCaprio.  This probably sounds like a great problem to have; however, I avoid Mr. DiCaprio’s films because he always seems to die, or almost die, and I find it so difficult to watch.  When his character drowns (sorry, spoilers!) I felt like I was having a heart attack! I literally wanted to scream “Rose, move your ass over and let him up on that door!”  There was definitely room, amiright?

The titanic planet Jupiter entered Pisces (again) on the 28th of December 2021.  This expansive gas giant took a brief dip into the deeply spiritual world of Pisces from May 14, 2021 to July 29, 2021, but only made it as far as 2 degrees. However, that did give us a little preview of the first half of 2022. 

The orbit of Jupiter typically means that he spends about 12 months in a sign, but since last year he seems to be fond of running through a sign in the first half of the year and previewing the next during the summer months.  Now he will be moving very swiftly through Pisces and then into Aries (5/11 – 10/28) for several months.

Jupiter is known as the “Great Benefic”.  He expands whatever he touches, and he rules the 9th house of knowledge and understanding. This is where it gets interesting…Jupiter is the ancient ruler of Pisces. Neptune is the “modern” ruler (since he was only discovered in the last 100 years).  So technically, Jupiter and Neptune co-rule the 12th house of Pisces, and guess what? They are going to be in Pisces at the same time and will exactly conjunct on April 12, 2022.  These two sailors will hold each other in thrall  (1 degree orb) from 4/7 – 4/17. These two only conjunct every 13 years and won’t be conjunct in their rulership again in our lifetime… so it’s time to plot your course.   

With Jupiter transiting here for a significant portion of the year, we will definitely see the expansion of creativity.  Look and see what houses these signs rule in your chart and this will help you establish the themes of expansion for you in 2022.

Pisces rules the 12th house, which is all about exploring your deepest dreams… but there can be a tendency to get lost in the deep, murky waters of the unconscious.  With Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces you could be lost in flights of fancy, living outside of the bounds of reality, or being caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.  It will be important to know when to drop anchor and plot a new course. 

How do you make the most of this Jupiter cycle during his rulership?  Look and see what house is ruled by Pisces in your chart.  That is where you will feel the expansion in your life. This will be especially intense for anyone with their Sun, Moon, Ascendant, or North/South Nodes. If you have anything from 20 – 29 degrees of Pisces, or any of the other mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius), or any of the other water signs (Cancer, Scorpio) you will really be able to creatively expand your life.  Everyone in the collective will benefit from this energy, but it is important to meet this energy with intention and action.

With the jovial vibe of Jupiter in Pisces, we can see the creation of more fantastical media, beautiful music, art, and poetry. Perhaps we will see people giving up everything to finally chase their dreams and get their “just desserts”.

Want to know your future?  Sure, you do.  Well, you are in luck because on May 13, Jupiter will enter Pisces for two and a half months; during this time, you will get a ‘sneak peek’ of what he will have in store for you in 2022.

Jupiter moving into another sign in the middle of the year is rather unusual since Jupiter has a 12 year orbit, spending about one year in each zodiac sign.  However, he has literally sprinted through the sign of Aquarius this year and is preparing to take a dive into the ethereal waters of his ancient rulership, Pisces. The modern-day ruler is Neptune, who is also currently moving through Pisces and is in the last ten degrees of a sign.  Neptune is also getting ready to go retrograde (Rx) on June 25 – December 1.  Having both of these planets in rulership at the same time makes Pisces super-powered!

Let’s Talk about the Big Guy, Shall We?

That’s right – if you hadn’t already guessed it, Jupiter is the largest planet in our Solar System — dwarfed only by the Sun.  The last time Jupiter was in Pisces was during 2010.  You might think back to that time and see if you are experiencing any echoes from the past. What was going on in your life in 2010? What did you do for work? Where did you live? Who was in you daily life? 

Jupiter is known as the ‘Great Benefic,’ and generally expands whatever he touches. This can lead to more money, more fun, even more beauty. However, if he is moving through the sign of your Sun, Moon, or Ascendant he can also expand your waistline and your spending.  Generally, though, he is thought to be a bringer of luck and good fortune. 

House Rules

It is important that you know which house in your chart is ruled by Pisces. Pisces is the last sign in the Zodiac, and he inhabits the 12th house. 

  • The 12th house is thought to contain aspects of all the other signs. It is literally the unconscious of the entire zodiac — boundless, and therefore encompassing a bit of all the signs’ characteristics.  This makes it complicated and vast, but also fragile and mystical.
  • Pisces is mutable water and can flow like the stream of consciousness that it governs.  People that have many placements, or prominent ones, such as Neptune, Jupiter, the Sun, Moon, or their Ascendant, often have one foot in this realm and one in the next.  If you have placements in Pisces, or the 12th house, you may be an empath, psychic, healer, or all of the above.

The 9th house (Sagittarius) is where Jupiter is thought to rule supreme, but in the 12th house with Neptune…get ready for your wildest dreams to get even wilder. You will also have many opportunities to expand your spiritual (and even psychic) development.

  • If you have a Sun, Moon, Ascendant or any other major placement in the 9th house — or in Sagittarius — you can also benefit from this transit.  Jupiter is optimistic and generous; this could promise big love and abundance. 
  • It can also lead to a dark night of the soul, especially if you start to question your spiritual beliefs, are going through a major transit like a Saturn Return, Chiron Return, or Pluto Square Pluto.  This is when an astrologer can really come in handy to help you navigate through this major life transits, which we all experience throughout our lives.

Jupiter Takes a Dive

This two and a half month window will particularly impact anyone with any placements in the early degrees of Pisces, and also any of the other Mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius.  You will definitely feel the benefit if you have anything in the early degrees of the other water signs — like Cancer and Scorpio, which will trine Jupiter.  Also, early  in the earth signs of Taurus or Capricorn since that energy will be sextile Jupiter in Pisces.
