Jupiter conjunct Neptune [23 Pisces 55]
– April 12, 2022 (15:42 GMT+1)
There’s a major planetary conjunction taking place this month, exact on April 12th. This sees the two big planets Jupiter and Neptune come together in their mutual sign of rulership Pisces for the first time since 1856.
In mythology, Jupiter was God of the sky and Neptune was God of the sea. This immediately feels like a big wave taking place as they come together in Pisces, an emotional water sign and the last sign of the zodiac. If you’re sensitive or an empath, this could feel completely overwhelming, although potentially spiritually awakening and revelatory too.
What makes this conjunction so complex is the fact that both Jupiter and Neptune have multi-faceted symbolism. You can get your head around the symbolism of most of the planets in a few words and know what it represents. It’s not the case with these two big players.
For example, Jupiter is the planet of growth and expansion and is linked to luck and good fortune. It rules global connections, also long-distance travel & study, higher education, the law, religion, publishing, large animals. It’s about freedom, vision and faith and at its best linked to the truth. Jupiter’s flip side is over-exaggeration, arrogance or a desire to play God.
Neptune is complex and web-like in its symbolism. It’s the planet of dreams & the imagination, romance & escapism, linked to Hollywood glamour, the movies and the fantasy realm. Neptune’s a mystical, magical and cosmic influence and pushes back the boundaries of possibility. It’s ethereal & elusive. Neptune’s flip side is delusion, addiction, deception and betrayal. It rules photography, poetry, beauty, art, music & enchantment.
You can see what an amazing planetary event this can be if it plays out well. Water signs like Pisces have little to do with everyday routine. Water signs rule the emotions; they are mute, deep and pick up on images, vibration and sound.
This planetary combination could pass you by if you’re trundling along, focusing on the mundane and the trivia of life. Yet, if you’re highly attuned, awake & open to the wonders of life, this combination could be miraculous, revelatory & awakening.
What It Could Mean
Jupiter and Neptune want to inspire you to see what’s beyond everyday life, even beyond the earth; they take you further, always moving outwards & upwards into new dimensions. Jupiter and Neptune urge you to connect with your deeper purpose, to be inspired by compassion & kindness, to tap into the collective unconscious.
This planetary conjunction calls out to you: What are you searching and seeking? You may want to sail away on the ocean, reconnect with your faith or find a place where you can embrace your spiritual nature. It asks you to forgive, make a sacrifice and care for all of humanity. It’s a cosmic reminder that we’re all one.
You may be drawn towards an artistic project, a musical journey, a poetic path. Consider what takes you out of yourself in a good way and when you feel at your most selfless. This is the Jupiter-Neptune voyage, especially when these two planets meet in caring & kind Pisces.
The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction has the potential to lead you on a journey, shoot stardust into the cosmos and explore the outermost regions of our vast universe. This is no small, everyday planetary combination. It’s the astrological equivalent of an outer-body experience or an overwhelming flood of emotion.
It can take you above and beyond what you believe, what you think, your normal encounter with life. Make the most of this magical mystery tour, whether you fall in Love, seek devotion, find your muse, tap into your creative & spiritual source or devote your life to service.
The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction is urging you to surf your dreams, to believe in limitless possibility, to ask for forgiveness, to be awash with kindness & compassion.
What To Be Wary Of
Jupiter & Neptune are equally strong in Pisces. Jupiter rules truth while Neptune rules lies – which one will win? Pisces is the star sign linked to the media. Conspiracy theories are rife, fake news is everywhere. It’s easy to lose sight of your own judgement and believe everything you hear or read.
Jupiter is the planet linked to wealth & abundance and expands what it touches. Together with Neptune, this is fantasy territory, a bubble, over-inflation. Interest rates are rising, gas & oil prices (Neptune’s domain) are shooting through the roof, paper money can be printed at top speed but means nothing if it’s not anchored in reality.
Be wary of lies, scams & get-rich-quick schemes. Use your common sense, your down-to-earth nous to suss out what’s a good deal and what’s over-blown hype. Steer clear of scandal, illusion, delusion and keep your feet firmly planted on the ground.
Jupiter is the global planet and Neptune is linked to sacrifice – the God of the sea in the water sign Pisces. In recent years, when these two major planets have made a clashing square or opposition aspect, there’s been a flood of refugees. Once again, during the conjunction, we have a similar situation with millions of people fleeing Ukraine.
It’s not just the date of the conjunction that’s important – Jupiter-Neptune themes have been building since earlier this year when the Sun entered Pisces on February 18th.
The inner planets will continue to trigger the conjunction point until May 2022. Then, there may be another wave of Jupiter-Neptune themes playing out in the last two months of the year when Jupiter returns to Pisces.
Pisces is the star sign where you lose yourself. This includes drink, drugs & addictive tendencies. If you’re going to lose yourself and go on a magical mystery ride, do so in a way that adds a new dimension to your life and doesn’t lead you down a dangerous path.
Jupiter is the planet that expands what it touches – it’s a lucky, benevolent and protective influence. When Jupiter triggers Neptune, there can be a cultural renaissance, a new wave of music, art, poetry.
We may experience a global meditation, a spiritual awakening or encounter the divine. New psychedelic therapies could be revelatory or there may be a major breakthrough in healing, perhaps linked to the oceanic depths.
Neptune is the planet that dissolves what it touches. When Neptune triggers Jupiter, this could be a time when you lose your faith, dissolve into confusion or overwhelming emotion as your sense of meaning or purpose dissipates.
Another reminder that this powerful conjunction requires a tether, an anchor to real life so you don’t lose yourself completely.
