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”.

Neptune square the Nodes of the Moon  – January 26, 2021

Neptune square the Nodes of the Moon – January 26, 2021

A long-running configuration of Neptune — squaring the Nodes of the Moon and creating a t-square — will perfect on January 26, 2021.  Now is the time to understand that our past (South Node in Sagittarius) is just a reference point that can inform our journey ahead (North Node in Gemini) as we continuously consult our imagination (Neptune in Pisces), and navigate our path to the future.

Neptune is in his rulership of Pisces at 18 degrees. Neptune went retrograde at 20 degrees of Pisces at the end June 2020 and stayed retrograde for almost five months. He retrograded all the way back to 18 degrees, where he has remained since early October 2020.  On January 26, Neptune will move into the 19th degree of Pisces and exactly square both the North Node in Gemini (our collective destiny) and the South Node in Sagittarius (our collective karma) — both at 19 degrees of the Gemini/Sagittarius axis, which is about information and freedom.

This is a very important time for us individually, and collectively for humanity, but it all begins with what’s going on inside of you. Neptune rules the 12th house, where your emotions, compassion, and imagination reside. This t-square invites you to consider your thoughts, hopes, and dreams for yourself and for the world.

What is a T-Square?

Basically, the t-square configuration is an isosceles triangle, which is simply a triangle with two sides that are the same length.  So, you have a 90 degree angle, another 90 degree angle, both known as “squares,” and a 180 degree opposition connecting them. 

Squares indicate inner conflict and oppositions reflect outer conflict. If you apply this to Neptune squaring both of the Nodes — who are always in opposition — then this t-square is about releasing the collective past in order to envision a new collective future.  The question is: how do we do that when Neptune keeps fogging up the road ahead?

The Challenge

Envisioning a new collective future can be difficult when we are so divided from our past, but let’s look at the houses and signs associated with this t-square.

  • Our future (North Node) lies in Gemini/3rd house, ruled by Mercury, who dictates how we communicate and perceive.
  • Our past (South Node) lies in Sagittarius/9th house, ruled by Jupiter, who expands our knowledge, our experiences, and our beliefs.
  • Our reality (Neptune) lies in Pisces/12th house, ruled by Neptune, who can cloud our judgment, hide the truth of our reality, but also allow us to create new worlds.

The 3rd, 9th, and 12th houses are to do with the mind, higher wisdom, and the psyche.  Basically, we are all “tripping” through the universe of our imagined reality at the moment, but it’s time to get serious.  We have an opportunity to effect tremendous change by shifting our focus.

The Shift

Remember, your focus determines your reality. Instead of looking in that rearview mirror all the time…keep your eyes on the road ahead so you can better navigate the journey before you.  This will require inner focus, discernment, and imagination working in harmony to shift from the narrative of the past to the potential of the future.
