Jupiter Enters Aries
– December 20, 2022 (14:32 GMT)
This week, there’s a shift in the heavens as Jupiter enters Aries on December 20th, followed by the Sun’s move into Capricorn on December 21st. Aries & Capricorn are cardinal star signs, i.e. the leaders of the zodiac, motivated and dynamic.
If you’ve been wallowing around over the last couple of months, this could help fire you up as we get ready to leave 2022 and move into a new year 2023.
The Big Planet
Jupiter is the biggest planet in the universe and the best planet in astrology. Jupiter takes twelve years to circuit the zodiac bringing its blessings to each of the twelve star signs in turn.
In mythology, Jupiter was a Sky God, linked to expansion, benevolence and protection. Jupiter is the planet that represents travel, higher education, the law, truth & justice, wherever you seek meaning & purpose in life, the bigger picture. At its best, Jupiter’s influence is jovial, fortunate and lucky.
Therefore, wherever Jupiter goes, you’re wise to follow as this is where opportunity lies. What begins under a Jupiter transit often promises success.
Jupiter In Aries
Jupiter re-enters the first sign of the zodiac Aries this week. Jupiter’s already been in Aries from May 11 to October 28, 2022. It only reached 8° Aries but, this time around, Jupiter’s whizzing through the speediest star sign.
Jupiter will complete a whole transit of Aries in just under five months, from December 20, 2022 to May 16, 2023.
This is great news if you’re an Aries but potentially good news for all the star signs. Jupiter is in its sign of rulership in water sign Pisces, where it’s been for the last couple of months. Yet, there’s been a lot of mutable star sign energy and this can be confusing and misleading. It’s not great for getting things done.
If you’re ready for action, Jupiter in Aries is the time to be a trail-blazer and take a leap of faith. Jupiter in Aries is fearless & feisty.
This is about taking a stand or fighting for what you believe in. Strikes are big news here in the UK and it’s becoming ever more important to stand up for individual rights. Jupiter in Aries is a reminder that it only takes one person to make an impact on the world.
Jupiter in Aries is the the visionary, the pioneer. Put the planet of optimism and faith in the star sign that loves to start something new and this combination is great for risk-taking and being an innovator.
Jupiter is a cosmic reminder that luck is an attitude. Sit back and do nothing and luck may not find you. Have a big vision, be a risk-taker and have an invincible self-belief and you can fly.
Jupiter in Aries says ‘do it now’, don’t procrastinate. Jupiter in Aries is a leader but not someone who’s going to bother drawing up the business plan or seeing things through to completion. For that, you need a team around you.
There’s impatience here too, a competitive spirit, a desire to win. Jupiter in Aries promises a great deal of enthusiasm, energy and vision for the future. Notice who or what appears in your life today as Jupiter re-enters Aries.
Yes, we’re moving into a new Mercury retrograde season from December 29th to January 18th & action planet Mars remains retrograde until January 12th, but Jupiter’s move into Aries feels dynamic and hopeful.
Use the timing of astrology well, i.e. sow seeds and come up with new ideas now. Then, put your ideas into action and water those seeds so they can flourish and grow from mid-January onwards.
