Jupiter Returns to Pisces~Sep. 8, 2010 to Jan. 22, 2011

Following Uranus' move mid-August when he returned to Pisces for a last look before leaving the sign for good (or another 84 or so years), Jupiter also revisits Pisces from September 8 at 9:50 p.m. PST (September 9 at 12:50 a.m. EST) until January 22, 2011. Once again, Jupiter chases after Uranus much like how they were earlier this year in May.

Jupiter's return to Pisces retraces his steps all the way back to 23 degrees of Pisces, while Uranus revisits back to 26 degrees. By late December, Jupiter and Uranus will once again walk side by side in the last degrees of Pisces before re-entering Aries next year (Jupiter, on January 22; Uranus, March 11). Their next conjunction perfects on January 4, 2011 at 27 degrees of Pisces which follows their prior meetings on June 8, 2010 in Aries at Aries Point and September 18, 2010 in Pisces at 29 degrees. The January 4, 2011 conjunction occurs on the same day as the New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Capricorn, giving even more significance to their meeting in Pisces.

A New Moon in Virgo precedes Jupiter re-entry in Pisces. New Moons signify beginnings, renewals.

As written on previous posts:Jupiter represents good luck, joy, expansion, opportunities, higher education, and personal growth through our interests, experience and spirituality. He also governs publishing, travel, foreigners and exposure to other cultures. At best, Jupiter brings a wealth of knowledge, understanding, growth, opportunities, as well as financial gains. At worst, overindulgent, excessive, wasteful and unable to get past "dreaming" of the possibilities.

Uranus is the awakener, the mover and shaker of the zodiac. His goal is change/improvement for the masses at any cost, even at the cost of chaos or a revolution. Uranus represents humanitarianism, unconventionality, unpredictability, indifference, freedom, technological advancements, and loyalty to its cause. Uranus' energy is radical, disruptive, rebellious and innovative.

Pisces is imaginative, creative, receptive and peace-loving. Pisces governs mysticism, spirituality, intuition, dreams, psychic abilities, compassion, sacrificial love, escapism, drug/substance abuse, phobias and mental problems. At best, Pisces is spiritually/psychically attune to the inner-workings within the "unseen" world and able to apply this awareness in the "seen" world. At worst, deluded, diffident and incapable of functioning in the physical realm.

In Pisces, Jupiter is super compassionate, seeks to fully understand how we are all interconnected, aims for more spiritual connections, and is intuitively in sync with a more collective consciousness. This transit encourages us as a whole to begin, continue or educate others in exploring ways to improve our own quality of life, as well as of those around us -- may it be living greener, adopting a healthier lifestyle, giving back through volunteer work, connecting with the divine, becoming more aware of one's civic duties, or even something as simple as treating others as you would have yourself be treated. The effort of each, collectively, benefits more people and, possibly, on a global scale.

On a personal level, Jupiter in Pisces is a time to recognize the existence and influence of the unseen world through seeking our own personal truths, no matter where the journey might lead us along the way. Be open to unlock the "magic" of the subconscious, tap into one's own spiritual consciousness, and learn to trust one's own intuition more. Be adventurous enough to explore the unknown.

With regards to the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction, my only word of caution is -- keep in mind that this Jupiter-Uranus energy is happening in the sign of Pisces. It's one thing to gain insight and grounding through the optimism and overall good feeling their growing conjunction might bring. It's quite another to become attached to this 'good feeling' and give in to avoidance or total escape. Allow Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces to help you find your center again but don't 'check out'. Continue to 'show up' every moment of each day.

Late-born Pisceans and Virgos, late-decan Pisces and Virgo risings and those with natal planets/house angles within 22-29 degrees of mutable or water signs may experience Jupiter's return in Pisces more prominent than others.

For me as a late-decan Virgo-rising, Jupiter revisiting back to 23 degrees of Pisces transits my natal 7th house of partnerships then crossing back over to my natal 6th house of work and health around mid-October, then re-entering my 7th house mid-December; as a Cancer-Sun, Jupiter returns to my solar 9th house of personal growth and expansion. His transit also revisits an opposition to my natal Pluto (endings); square my Mercury (thought) and Midheaven (career); and trine my Neptune (enlightenment). These next months give me the opportunity to grow as a person and improve/grow work opportunities through shifting my thought process, eliminating that which holds me back, and gain insight into my own drives/motivation/goals ... although, not necessarily in that order :) At this time, I may also gain partnership/s with others to help grow my business; and during Jupiter's brief return to my 6th house can be a period where I take care of my physical health through a living healthier lifestyle.

How might Jupiter's transit manifest in your life? Look to the Pisces-ruled house in your birth chart. Match the sign and degrees to determine which house/s on your birth chart Jupiter will revisit.

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.
