Jupiter Direct ~ November 18, 2010

It's been a long four months since the planet of expansion began his retrograde cycle. I'm super excited that Jupiter stations for direct motion on November 18, just before Venus (love/money/values) also becomes direct, which leave Uranus (awakening/radical change) as the only planet still retrograde (introspective).

Since becoming retrograde at 3 degrees of Aries, Jupiter has returned to 23 degrees of Pisces and transits Pisces for the last time in a long time. He won't visit Pisces again until 2021, which adds greater significance to his meeting with Uranus in Pisces, especially for those with natal planet or house angles in the very late degrees of water or earth signs or at Aries Point of cardinal signs.

As written in a previous post, 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.

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.

Jupiter re-enters Aries on January 22, 2011 where he remains until June 4, 2011. His first few weeks in Aries will retrace his steps from Aries Point to 3 degrees of Aries, which revisits the period from June to early September 2010 and offers us the opportunity to pick up where we left off, gain some extra headway, take something to the next level or finally officially launch what we have been working on.

How might Jupiter's direction change influence you? Look to the house/s that govern Pisces and Aries or if you have your natal chart, look at where 23 degrees of Pisces to 3 degrees of Aries falls in your chart. This is the area Jupiter covered during his retrograde period and will revisit until early February 2011.

Those who have natal planets or house angles at 3 degrees of Aries back to 23 degrees of Pisces may get more of workout during Jupiter's retrograde cycle. Unsure if you have natal planets/house angles between 23 degrees of Pisces and 3 degrees of Aries? Cast your own birth chart -- birth date, time and place required.
