Pisces is the constellation that traditional ancient astrologers deemed as Jupiter’s home before modern planet Neptune was discovered. Some astrological interpretation and archetypal keywords for the largest planet in our solar system are growth, expansion, benevolence, generosity, wealth, luck, travel, protection, legal matters, higher education, foreign and cultural interests. Astrologers are super excited when Jupiter enters Pisces because the magnanimous dynamism of Jupiter is further amplified in this zodiac sign.
It would be remiss of me not to mention that every planet has a shadow side, and Jupiter is no exception. Although Jupiter does indeed bring bountiful blessings, an excess of this energy can also result in problematic situations. In economic terms we call this “inflation”. With boastful egos we see someone who “exaggerates”. Too much bacteria leads to an “overgrowth” of mold and a “surplus” of yeast brings on internal health conditions like Candida. In other words, don’t go overboard with Jupiter as moderation is always your “BFF”.
Western Astrology uses the four seasons and "tropical calendar" to determine planetary transits like this one. As we’re now about to get a taste of what Jupiter will mean for us, think back to roughly 12 years ago when Jupiter was last in Pisces and what occurred for you during the timeframe of January 18, 2010 through January 22, 2011. Where and how did you experience your development? You’ll likely find similar life themes or flashbacks from those past events during the months ahead as this Jupiter cycle repeats in Pisces.
