the astrology of jupiter into Aries | may 2022 to may 2023 - waking up from the dream, greater passion, greater initiative, greater anger, having faith in ourselves, starting something big

On May 10, 2022, Jupiter leaves his old stomping ground of watery Pisces for fiery Aries. He will be in Aries until May 2023, but will dip back into Pisces for several weeks at the end of this year during his retrograde.

Jupiter's role is expansion - to create the BIG PICTURE. 


Jupiter is huge, but not solid. He grows whatever he comes in contact with, then, through contact with the other planets, this unchecked growth gets form/structure/limits. 


Considered the greater benefic (as Zeus he was king of the Gods), he promotes abundance, wisdom, our ability to stretch outside our comfort zone.

Now Jupiter brings OPPORTUNITIES to our Aries house and to the collective themes of - men, the masculine, initiative, new ventures,  new actions, independent actions. Jupiter rules fiery Sagittarius, so is perfectly comfortable in fiery Aries. 

Jupiter brings LUCK and we get lucky in a couple different ways with this energy. One way is by ACTING lucky. Having confidence/courage. Knowing things are going to work out and so things work out. The whole king of the Gods thing and all. The other way is by taking something FURTHER. Going out on a limb. This can be through a reckless/adventurous spirit or through the wisdom gained by putting the time/energy into learning something really, really well and/or by taking a wider view. Think about the guy who is climbing the mountain and also the guy he meets in the cave on the way up, contemplating the BIG PICTURE. 

On the downside, having the planet of expansion in the sign of the youthful masculine - we might collectively be more extremely angered, more prone to arguments, more impulsive, more war-like. 

(Brene Brown wrote a timely article yesterday - she's always very timely/keyed into the collective consciousness, 12th house Sun/Neptune in Scorpio - on the space between stimulus and our response to the stimulus, this is certainly something to think about with Jupiter in Aries)

"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom" - Viktor Frankl

Allowing ourselves this "space" is going to matter. We are going to need to have faith (Jupiter) in ourselves (Aries), to trust ourselves and know when we respond and not react it will be ok, better than ok ...

because there are a couple good indicators it would be best to not run off too far and too fast with whatever we have going on now. 

One is the ingress chart (chart for the time Jupiter ingresses into Aries) has a very still/recently retrograde Mercury backing up in Gemini - time to re-think something, re-look at facts and figures. Also, Jupiter, due to his upcoming retrograde, is going to be back in Pisces AGAIN, which means he will be entering Aries TWO MORE TIMES. Once, moving backward on October 22, 2022 and then finally, moving direct again, on December 20, 2022. 

The Jupiter Aries ingress is NOT a "one-and-done"/full-steam-ahead kind of thing. 

When Jupiter gets back into Pisces on October 23, 2022 (thru December 19, 2022) we will be back in dreamland/back to the "end" and incorporating what we have started with that. There is the chance what we have started will be DISSOLVING because that's a Pisces kind of ending and Pisces rules endings.

This won't be something where we start something new and then charge ahead and never look back.

This possible start/stop/adjustment thing ISN'T an excuse to not start. 

We sit out a forward motion Jupiter in Aries to our own detriment. But it IS something to pay attention to. 

And after saying that, I should reiterate this whole thing is tricky because Jupiter gets lucky by stretching/going big and Aries gets lucky by not being afraid to start, sometimes even when we don't really know what we are doing. So, hanging back or playing small isn't going to work. "Go big or go home" or "leaping and the net will appear" probably won't either. 

We will need to be smart. Also, with Jupiter in Aries, we are going to have to pay more attention to what Mars (ruler of Aries) is doing and what sign he is in. 

We begin the Jupiter ingress into Aries with Mars in Pisces, so we are rather EXHAUSTED/not seeing things clearly. Maybe it won't be until Mars gets into Aries, too - May 24th - when we are really feeling this PUSH. With Mars in Pisces, pushing isn't so effective, but once Mars gets into Aries THERE WILL BE PUSHING. 

Let's take a quick look by sign. 

Check your ascendant and your Sun - any questions shoot me an email.

For the house/theme Jupiter is LEAVING, check the sign AFTER your sign. You will surely be able to see the gifts/benefits his time in Pisces has brought you and this isn't over. Jupiter will be back in Pisces in October for the BIG finish, so October - December will probably be the best time for the benefits/results of Jupiter in Pisces to be visible. We can count on this - Jupiter always does his job. 

ARIES | Aries Rising - this is YOUR TRANSIT Aries and is happening in your 1st house of yourself. Faith. Luck. Confidence. The desire for MORE. You can physically take up more space during this transit/stand taller/get noticed (just watch that one donut doesn't turn into the whole dozen). Arian qualities - a passionate nature, impulsivity, anger, initiative can grow. Just keep the more, more, more thing in balance and know this is a sneak peak of what you can expand during the first half of 2023. 

TAURUS | Taurus Rising - this is happening in your 12th house of what is hidden or put away or done behind the scenes, art, music, relaxation, meditation, water, compassion, forgiveness, secrets, the ethereal realms, the past, imagination, hospitals, spirituality, addiction, healing. Something here EXPANDS. Your intuition increases. Your dreams/imagination gets bigger. Faith. Luck. Confidence. The desire for MORE.

GEMINI | Gemini Rising- this is happening in your 11th house of the collective - your friendships, your tribe, groups, causes, the internet, the public, the goals that bring you into relationship with other people, your advancement, technology. Something here EXPANDS. Your confidence/optimism in social situations grows. Faith. Luck. Confidence. The desire for MORE.

CANCER | Cancer Rising - this is happening in your 10th house of your career, your calling, your achievements, goals, your father/paternal story, business, authority, responsibility. Something here EXPANDS. This could be about a change of career, recognition or the confidence to explore something in a bigger way. Faith. Luck. Confidence. The desire for MORE.

LEO | Leo Rising - this is happening in your 9th house of travel, higher education, weddings, politics, legal issues, the media, publishing, foreigners, everything outside your comfort zone, exploration, your beliefs and higher thinking. Something here EXPANDS. Faith. Luck. Confidence. The desire for MORE. This is Jupiter's natural house, so should be a good thing!


VIRGO | Virgo Rising - this is happening in your 8th house of other people's resources, other people's values, intimacy, other people's money, spouse's income, loans, debts, taxes, inheritance, death, rebirth, sex, reproduction. Something here EXPANDS. Faith. Luck. Confidence. The desire for MORE. 

LIBRA | Libra Rising - this is happening in your 7th house of partners and partnerships. Something here EXPANDS. Faith. Luck. Confidence. The desire for MORE. A new/idealistic person could enter your life or a partner could become more fiery/passionate. You will experience Jupiter in Aries through your relationships/other people. There might be fast changes/expansion. One or both partners might desire more freedom. Worst case a partner takes this Jupiter/Aries energy too far/blows something up. Best case, and this is probably way more likely, the relationship grows in optimism/faith/passion.

SCORPIO | Scorpio Rising - this is happening in your 6th house of your day-to-day activities, your routine, work, co-workers, pets and your health. Something here EXPANDS. Take care of your health. This house can get tricky, so you want to keep things in balance/avoid burnout/growing the wrong things. Faith. Luck. Confidence. The desire for MORE. 

SAGITTARIUS | Sagittarius Rising - this is happening in your 5th house of creative projects, your self-expression, what you give birth to, children, romance and recreation. Something here EXPANDS. Faith. Luck. Confidence. The desire for MORE. Jupiter is your ruler, so you will feel his move from mutable water to cardinal fire more than most. 

CAPRICORN | Capricorn Rising - this is happening in your 4th house of home, family, your roots, mother, mothering, your ancestry, real estate, renovation or a home business. Something here EXPANDS/becomes bigger or a bigger focus. Have faith. Here is luck/confidence. The desire for MORE. 

AQUARIUS | Aquarius Rising - this is happening in your 3rd house of communication, information, writing, siblings, transportation or your local neighborhood. Something here EXPANDS. Jupiter's move from watery Pisces into fiery Aries can help you reboot your tired mind by expanding your optimism/faith. Your mental health or communication could become a top priority under this transit and you will find ways to improve it. A good transit to learn something new, write, talk, grow in your local environment.

PISCES | Pisces Rising - this is happening in your 2nd house of your money, your values, your resources and self-esteem. Something here EXPANDS. This transit can increase your income/expenses which can be a good thing or maybe not, so keep an eye on the bottom line Pisces and focus on increasing what you really value/need/want to keep.


Jupiter is going to get to 8 degrees Aries when he will station retrograde on July 28th (the same day we have a New Moon in Leo at 5 degrees), so people with planets and points between 0 and 8 degrees Aries - and the other cardinal signs, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn - will probably feel this first leg the strongest. Also people with late degree Pisces/water signs as he takes his first exit.

So, from now until July 28th we get a preview of this energy/a chance to learn how to work with it. 

If things expand we are not so happy with, we will have a chance to re-structure/re-vise before things are 'full steam ahead' with whatever is GROWING starting at the end of 2022 and continuing into May 2023 - as long as we don't get too far ahead of ourselves now

Besides the retrograde "re-working's/looking for the missed opportunities" starting in late July, also pencil in October 2022 when Jupiter backs back into Pisces as a kind of 'cooling off' period before things push forward at the end of December.

If things expand nicely - greater optimism, faith, initiative, passion, courage, independence - just know we have a few weeks of Jupiter in Pisces (that October to December 2022 period) to finish up later in the year. 

Don't count those chickens just yet. DO allow yourself to feel/explore this new area of growth/hope. 

We'll talk more about this transit as we move through it.

Heads up our next post, unless I toss up a daily, will be about our Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Monday which is BIG. BIGGITY BIG.
