Taurus is the sign that wants to slow things down, take a beat, and catch its breath. There's no rush with Taurus. That doesn't usually work well!
This means that wherever you have Taurus in your natal chart, that area is one where you can take your time. You don't want to be rushed with anything, and you'll push against anyone who tries to rush you with it!
Taurus is an earth sign, along with Virgo and Capricorn. The earth signs are the practical ones, the ones who get things done carefully and cautiously. Once Taurus does move forward with someone, it can see it through to the end.
Taurus is also a fixed sign, along with Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. The fixed signs keep at it, helping with Taurus to stay the course, but also adding to the slow start.
Taurus is governed by the planet Venus, who is sensual, seductive, and attractive. This helps Taurus not need to push so much, because it can attract what it wants more easily. There's some argument for Ceres to be the ruler of Taurus instead of Venus btw, and Ceres is very solid, focused, and can be stubborn.
So, Taurus is a sign that takes things slow, waits for the right time, and won't budge until it's ready. The areas of life ruled by the house in your natal chart that falls in Taurus gets this energy. You take your time, and you won't budge until you're ready!
1st house: This house rules the outer self, so you can come across as someone who is immovable, stoic, secure, and reliable. You seem like someone who wants to take their time with everything, and others can't convince you otherwise.
2nd house: This is the house that naturally connects with Taurus, so you can feel more at ease with some of this energy here. You can take your time with financial decisions, remain solid with your values, and ground yourself.
3rd house: This house rules the mind and communication, so you can take your time coming up with ideas, making decisions, and putting together plans, but once you do, you can stick with them to the end.
4th house: This house rules the home and family, so you can focus on having a solid, stable, secure home and family life. This may take time to build, but it can be a source of emotional security once it is.
5th house: This house rules love and creativity, so you can take your time with sharing love, but are all-in once you do, and you can do your time with creative projects and ventures, but are passionate about them once begun.
6th house: This house rules your work and daily life, so you can take your time with smaller projects, tasks, and chores, and may be slow to pick up routines or schedules. Your pace can pick up on your own terms, once comfortable.
7th house: This house rules your relationships, so you can take your time committing to others, entering into partnerships, and bringing new people into the fold, but are loyal once you do. You may also attract people who take their time.
8th house: This house rules transformations, so you can take your time making them in your life. As you do, you can go into them slowly, so they may take a little longer than for the rest of us, but they can last longer too.
9th house: This house rules your beliefs, so you can take your time with figuring yours out. Once you do, you can believe in them passionately. You can also take time to expand your life in new ways and explore opportunities.
10th house: This house rules your goals and direction, so you may take your time with pursuing your goals, setting new ones, and putting together long-term plans. You're dedicated once you do, but want to have confidence first.
11th house: This house rules your friends and dreams, so you can take your time with meeting new people and expanding your social circle, but are dedicated to the friends you have. You may take time to pursue your dreams or choose them, but fully believe in them once you do.
12th house: This house rules spirituality and the hidden, so you may take your time more when you're alone than when you're with others. You may take it slow with spiritual pursuits, but are fully invested as you go along with them.

Eclipses occur roughly every 6 months or so, and we get 2-3 at a time. Eclipses can trigger events, and this can be beneficial or challenging depending on the aspects they're making and what else you have going on astrologically. The strongest eclipses are usually the ones that are in your Sun, Moon, or Rising sign.
btw if you want to keep track of the astrology for every month, including when we have eclipses, make sure you're signed up for the monthly worksheet!
What is an eclipse?
Eclipses occur when a new or full moon occurs within 18 1/2 degrees of the Lunar Nodes, which are the points in the Moon's orbit where the Moon crosses the ecliptic. Solar eclipses occur with new moons and lunar eclipses occur with full moons.
We alternate between a new and full moon every 2 weeks or so, but we don't have eclipses every 2 weeks. Instead they occur every 6 months or so, and we get 2 or 3 at a time, 1-2 of each. Eclipses have stronger energy than new and full moons because of this, and they can act as a catalyst, triggering big events and developments in our lives.
Eclipses in your Sun, Moon, or Rising sign:
Eclipses that occur in your Sun, Moon, or Rising sign tend to be the strongest by themselves. The Sun is who you truly are, the Moon is your emotional self, your Rising is your outer self, so they are important parts of your natal chart and you can feel it strongly whenever they're getting hit.
Eclipses that occur conjunct (aligned with) your Sun, Moon, or Ascendant tend to be the strongest eclipses you experience, but this isn't really good or bad by itself. It's just strong energy. With a solar eclipse, it's tied to beginnings, and with a lunar eclipse, it's tied to endings and realizations. If it's joined by challenging aspects (conjunctions, squares, and oppositions) by transit (moving) Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto, or some difficult progressions, this may be on the challenging side. This isn't bad per se, but it can be more challenging and you may be forced to deal with things that you haven't yet.
If it's joined by beneficial aspects (sextiles and trines) by those planets or Jupiter, or some beneficial progressions, this can be on the positive side. You may be better equipped to embark on the new beginnings with the solar eclipse, or make progress and recognize that with the lunar eclipse.

Hard aspects by transit Pluto to your personal planets can be pretty brutal, and some of the most notoriously difficult astrology to go through involves Pluto. Pluto is a passionate, intense planet, and doesn't like to go easy on us!
An aspect is when two bodies are at certain distances from one another in the Zodiac. The Zodiac is comprised of 12 signs, and each are 30 degrees, so there are 360 degrees total. Some aspects are major, and they have the strongest impact, and of the major aspects, 3 can be considered hard by Pluto: conjunction, square, and opposition.
A conjunction occurs when they're in the same spot, Conjunctions are neutral, but when Pluto is conjunct one of your natal planets, this can amplify the intense, unrelenting energy of Pluto on whatever that planet rules, making it a challenge.
A square occurs when they're 90 degrees apart. Squares are said to be aspects of internalized friction, and may be the most difficult of the aspects by Pluto. You have a lot of inner work to do with a Pluto square!
An opposition occurs when they're exactly opposite one another. Oppositions are said to be aspects of external friction, and tend to bring more challenges externally that may feel out of your control and require lots of flexibility.
The personal planets are the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars (well technically the Sun and Moon are luminaries, but we'll simplify here). They're the planets mostly closely tied to our personality and who we are. Pluto is the planet of transformation, and this is most present under a hard aspect by Pluto to your personal planets. A transformation is required in order to get through the energy, otherwise Pluto will make you pay.

Surviving Hard Aspects to the Personal Planets by Transit Pluto:
Transit Pluto to the Natal Sun
With the natal Sun ruling the self, transit Pluto conjunct, square, or opposite can bring challenges that feel very personal, that target who you are as a person, or that touch on many areas of life. You may have lots of power struggles, and old issues may be dredged up.
How to survive:
Pluto wants a transformation, so you may need to focus on transforming some part of you. Your confidence, your outlook, your approach, even your physical self. This can also focus on the areas of life ruled by the house your natal Sun rules (the house with Leo on the cusp). Work on becoming more comfortable with your personal power in a healthy way. You don't need to give all your power away, but you also don't need to take it from others. There is enough within you.
Transit Pluto to the Natal Moon
With the natal Moon ruling your emotions, transit Pluto conjunct, square, or opposite can bring deeply-held emotions to the surface. All those old emotional issues that you haven't wanted to face can find their way out now. You can feel everything more deeply, and sway between emotional extremes as a result.
How to survive:
All of that emotional stuff is coming out for a reason - you need to deal with it! Tackle those emotional issues, stat, and get proactive about it. Your emotional response and what you need for emotional security and stability can transform now. This can be terrifying in the interim, but ultimately leads to greater emotional strength. Tackle any cracks in your internal foundation and make it stronger.
Transit Pluto to Natal Mercury
With natal Mercury ruling your mind, transit Pluto conjunct, square, or opposite can bring a very pessimistic outlook. You may become obsessed with certain subjects, projects, situations, or even just opinions and schools of thought, and have difficulty letting it go. You may be more forceful in communications with others, and can be your-way-or-the-highway.
How to survive:
There's always an out with Mercury, and one thing you'll likely need is to give your mind something to get wrapped up in where it's okay to be wrapped up in it. This tends to be best for big projects, big learning, and career pursuits. While your outlook may be pessimistic, it's really realistic, so when you find yourself veering toward the pessimism, check yourself. Is it really that bad, or is there something better you're overlooking? With communications, you have to work on being more compromising, and this may be something you have to consciously be aware of at all times so you make sure you're being considerate and not pushy.
Transit Pluto to Natal Venus
With natal Venus ruling your relationships, transit Pluto conjunct, square, or opposite can target your dealings with others. You may have more power struggles and fights over control, and any lingering issues in any of your relationships can boil over. You may be overly dominant, controlling, or manipulative with others, or you may deal with people who treat you that way. You can become obsessed with a person or relationship and get too wrapped up in it.
How to survive:
With existing relationships, work on the issues that are already there. The ones that have existed for a while, festered, and slowly gotten worse, are the ones you likely need to focus on most/first. Transforming the relationship is probably needed, though it may be that the transformation is an ending. Try to avoid dominating, controlling, manipulative people, and don't let yourself get sucked into drama. If you find you're the controlling one, turn inward and focus on the core of why that is.
Transit Pluto to Natal Mars
With natal Mars ruling your energy and drive, transit Pluto conjunct, square, or opposite can bring out any anger that you've been holding back. Anger, rage, hatred, and jealousy can all come out big. Your motivations may not be pure, and you may deal with a lot of unscrupulous people.
How to survive:
Mars/Pluto can be amazing for progress and productivity, so use the energy of Mars to focus on something you can pour the unrelenting passion into. This can be excellent for professional goals, but also personal growth (where exactly may focus on the areas of life ruled by the house your natal Mars rules, so the house with Aries on the cusp). If you're quick to heat up, this tends to actually be insecurity being triggered, so work on that. As for motivations, be more honest with yourself about what is driving you with everything you do. If they're not the best, get at the root of why that is. And stay away from shady people!

Here comes May! With the month of May, we have a new moon in Taurus and the first eclipse for 2021, a lunar eclipse in Sagittarius.
If you want to keep track of the planets and events every month (like new & full moons) make sure to sign up for the free monthly worksheet!
What is a new moon?
A new moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are in the exact same position in the Zodiac (called a conjunction). New moons are related to beginnings, have high energy, and are enthusiastic.
What is a lunar eclipse?
A full moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are in the exact opposite positions in the Zodiac (called an opposition). Full moons are related to endings, culminations, and are emotional energy. Lunar eclipses occur when a full moon is within 18 1/2 degrees of the Lunar Nodes (the points in the Moon's orbit where the Moon crosses the ecliptic).
New Moon in Taurus: May 11th 2021 (3PM ET/12PM PT)
With a new moon in Taurus, we can slow things down and try to catch our breath, and we can benefit from taking our time. We want to be certain before we take action, and once we do move forward, we can see it through to the end no matter what. We have staying power, but we have to take the first step first!
Taurus governs our values and what we feel is worthy, so we can give more attention to what we value, try to live more accordingly, and can focus on new values that reflect who we're growing into or who we want to become. Inequities may be highlighted, and we can focus on changing that.
Taurus is a money ruler, so there can be financial developments around this time, and we may focus on making important financial decisions or transactions, improving our financial approach, or stimulating finances in some way (can be good for second jobs, side gigs, and profitable hobbies).
Stability and security is also ruled by Taurus, so we may work on trying to improve the stability and security of life as we go forward. We may be less drawn to chaos, and more focused on how we can keep calm and be more present. Grounding can help with stability and security.
This new moon is sextile (positive aspect, 2 signs away) transit (moving) Neptune in Pisces, and this can increase imagination, make us more compassionate, and we can do more to help others. With Taurus, this may be financially, helping with stability/security, or through our values.
The new moon occurs at 21 degrees 18 minutes Taurus. Aspects to this new moon are:
Conjunction: 19 degrees 18 minutes - 23 degrees 18 minutes Taurus
Sextile: 19 degrees 18 minutes - 23 degrees 18 minutes Cancer or Pisces
Square: 19 degrees 18 minutes - 23 degrees 18 minutes Leo or Aquarius
Trine: 19 degrees 18 minutes - 23 degrees 18 minutes Virgo or Capricorn
Opposition: 19 degrees 18 minutes - 23 degrees 18 minutes Scorpio
Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius: May 26th 2021 (7:14AM ET/4:14AM PT)
Here comes the first eclipse for 2021! The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius can stimulate our beliefs in a big way. We can fight for what we believe in passionately, and defend our beliefs whole-heartedly. This can be problematic if we're not being open, automatically jumping to conclusions, or taking dumb risks. Beliefs can be a great motivator when used productively, coupled with informed decisions and smart actions. But lunar eclipses tend to be highly emotional, so we may have a hard time being objective and logical, and instead jump to action without thinking things through or respecting others. When riled up, take some moments to calm down before rushing into anything.
Sagittarius rules space and freedom, so we may crave a lot more space and freedom than we've had. Again, we need to be smart about this, and not just do the Sag thing and run for the hills. The smarter thing to do is to find space within limitations, rather than ignoring responsibilities and being reckless. Save pushing boundaries for the limitations that truly need to be torn down, otherwise there may not be enough gas in the tank for the stuff that really matters and deserves the attention.
Higher education, publishing, public speaking, and teaching all fall under Sagittarius, so this can be a good eclipse to finish a course of study or something that you're teaching, putting your work out there in the public, doing marketing and advertising, and communicating in a broader way that connects with people emotionally.
This lunar eclipse makes one aspect, a square (hard aspect, 3 signs away) to Jupiter, who is freshly in Pisces for this eclipse (starts May 13th). Jupiter is the natural ruler of Sagittarius, so we may struggle a bit more with the Sagittarius energy, and can be really lazy and lackadaisical with it, or expand on it too much and go to extremes with everything. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, so we have to try to find some middle ground with everything so we don't go too far in any direction.
I will also say, I'm not a fan of flying around this eclipse! Sagittarius and Jupiter rule flight; 3 days before, Saturn (a death planet) turns retrograde, and 3 days later, Mercury (a tech ruler) turns retrograde, and retrogrades throw things off. If you can avoid flying at the end of May/start of June, maybe do it!
The lunar eclipse occurs at 5 degrees 26 minutes Sagittarius. The aspects to this lunar eclipse are:
Conjunction: 0 degrees 26 minutes - 10 degrees 26 minutes Gemini
Semisextile: 3 degrees 26 minutes - 7 degrees 26 minutes Taurus or Cancer
Sextile: 0 degrees 26 minutes - 10 degrees 26 minutes Aries or Leo
Square: 0 degrees 26 minutes - 10 degrees 26 minutes Virgo or Pisces
Trine: 0 degrees 26 minutes - 10 degrees 26 minutes Libra or Aquarius
Quincunx: 3 degrees 26 minutes - 7 degrees 26 minutes Scorpio or Capricorn
Opposition: 0 degrees 26 minutes - 10 degrees 26 minutes Sagittarius

In 3 days, on April 19th, the Sun moves into Taurus, kicking off Taurus Season! This means we're exiting Aries Season, a time for energy, taking initiative, and new beginnings. This proved to be an excellent period for that, but now we enter Taurus Season, and energy slows down so we can take a beat and catch our breath.
If you're a Taurus (Sun, Moon, or Rising), or you have a strong natal Venus (the natural ruler of Taurus) or natal Ceres (argued to be the new ruler of Taurus), you know that this sign wants to slow things down. We've been rushing and gushing, and now we want to press pause so we can assess and better decide on next moves. Fellow earth signs Virgo and Capricorn can do well during Taurus Season, along with water sign Cancer and Pisces. Fellow fixed signs Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius may have more work to do.
This Taurus Season kicks off with Mercury moving into Taurus on the same day (the 19th), and Venus having moved into Taurus on the 14th, so we have strong Taurus energy right out of the gates. The Taurus New Moon on May 11th helps add fuel for stability and security.

About Taurus Energy:
Taurus is the second sign in the Zodiac, and follows energetic Aries. Taurus now sees a time to slow things down, take a moment, and press pause. Taurus doesn't feel rushed into anything, wanting to be confident in its decisions first. Confidence can be important for Taurus, helping to make it more decisive.
Stability and security is important to Taurus, and this can be a time to focus on improving that. Areas that have been chaotic can benefit from the calming energy of Taurus, and doing some grounding work can be highly beneficial.
Taurus wants us to take time to be present, in the moment, and reconnect with nature and our bodies. This is a sensual sign focused on the physical world, and we can strive to be more connected.
When you're a Taurus native (or have a strong Venus, Ceres, or stacked 2nd house, which corresponds to Taurus), you're likely someone who naturally takes your time, strives to be confident in your decisions, and is one with your body.

Taurus Season gives you a chance to slow down coming out of your season, Aries. Energy has likely been high, and you can use a little break to rest, replenish yourself, and gather information you need. Anything you do pursue now, you can stick with for a while, so you want to make a good choice. You can focus on bringing more stability and security to your life as well, and may want to take time to ground yourself so you approach everything from a solid position.
Taurus Season is your time, Taurus! When it's your season, it's the time of year for you to focus on what you want to get started. Your energy can be higher, you can be more excited by the opportunities you have, and you can charge forward enthusiastically. This can be a time of new beginnings, projects, and ventures, so think about what you want to embark on now that can be a focus for the next year or so of your life. You can get things started quickly, and feel good about your chances.
Taurus Season can make you get some rest, Gemini, and that may be especially important this go around since the next season is yours (and comes with some wonky astrology!). Take the time you have now to rest, recharge, replenish your energy, and eliminate anything weighing you down or finish anything that has taken up a lot of your time. Releasing can be helpful for dealing with the energy to come. Turn inward, connect to your intuition and subconscious, and reconcile with past issues.
Taurus Season can help push you to do things differently, Cancer. You can focus on what you want to try that's new and unusual or unconventional, and can be more willing to push outside of your comfort zone. You can be more independent and innovative, and willing to expand your social circle or make the most of existing connections. You can think more about your future and what you hope it will be like, and changes you make now may be for the purpose of getting you closer to that dream future.
Taurus Season can help with your goals, Leo. You can be more ambitious, disciplined, and focused, and this can help you make progress, achieve something, or hit a high point in some way. You can get recognition for what you've done right, and make important connections with important people. There may be extra responsibilities now as well, but you can handle them. You can work on long-term plans with a more practical eye, and understand what needs to be done to stay or get on the right direction.
Taurus Season may provoke you to push for some more space in your life, Virgo. This may be in small ways, and you can work within the restrictions you have to find the space you need. You may focus on expanding your mind, learning new things, having new experiences, and you can learn from everything you do. You can be more optimistic than usual, and want to focus on the bright side of situations. This can open you up more, and you can be bolder and more adventurous.
Taurus Season can get you focused on solutions to problems, Libra. You can throw yourself into any situation or project that requires you to be fully invested, and the more you dig, the more you uncover. You can find information that helps you see the way out of challenges, and you can do the serious work that needs to be done. This can also be a time to transform in some way, some part of yourself or of your life, and you can work on it from the core so it lasts for a long time.
Taurus Season lights up your relationships, Scorpio. You may want to spend more time with the people in your life, and you can give them more attention. You may feel more comfortable doing things with a partner, or want to do more to help others. This may feel like a time when it's more about other people than about yourself. At the same time, you may strive to have better balance, so you can try to maintain the middle. You may want to avoid dramatic people, and stick to some peace and harmony.
Taurus Season lights up your work, Sagittarius. You can be much more productive, getting as much done as you can to the best of your abilities, and can be efficient and orderly. You can improve your schedule and routine, and squeeze every last drop out of every second you have. This can be a great time to make progress with work and get attention for work you've done, but you should also try to make time to rest and take care of yourself so you don't burn out. Self care is good!
Taurus Season lights up love for you, Capricorn. You can spend more time with the people you love or doing the things you love, and you may have less patience for anything you don't love. This can make your solid work ethic a little less solid than usual, so try to get done what needs to be done and make extra time for play when you can. Creativity can be high, and this can help you focus on the little things and get work done if you feel you're being creative with it.
Taurus Season lights up your home and family life, Aquarius. You may want to spend more time with family or those you think of as family, and you can be more supportive, but also want more support in return. It's good to strengthen your support system, and this can help you feel more emotionally stable and secure. You can make improvements at home, and want to feel comfortable. This is generally a time when you may prefer to stick to your comfort zone instead of going out of it as much as usual.
Taurus Season stirs up mental energy and communication for you, Pisces. You can come up with plenty of new ideas that excite you, and you can focus on short-term plans to make things happen quickly. You can work on gathering information you need, getting advice, and talking things over, and talking can be something that helps you feel more secure. You can share what you're thinking more easily and openly, and feel more connected to others and more like yourself.

Jupiter is already on the move, heading for water sign Pisces on May 13th. Jupiter will be in and out of Pisces a few times, so it's a very fluid transit. Fitting for watery Pisces!

Jupiter in Pisces Dates:
How Jupiter in Pisces 2021-2022 Impacts You
Jupiter is the expansive planet, so it expands on whatever sign it's in. With Pisces, one of the things it expands on is our compassion. We can be suuuper compassionate, wanting to help others as much as we can, and willing to make sacrifices in order to help others. This can be great, but it does mean we have to work on better boundaries, because there's always someone there to take advantage of you when you've got a big heart. So, if boundaries are an issue for you, this would be a good time to take stock and work on improving them.
Pisces is a highly intuitive sign, so this transit is likely to increase intuition, spirituality, and interest in the metaphysical even more. It's not just about the physical world anymore, or the brain and what we're thinking, or even just emotion and what we're feeling. It's beyond all of that. Having a solid intuitive connection can be helpful in so many ways in life, and this transit is excellent for forging that strong connection and making positive use of it.
Pisces is also the sign ruling the arts and music, and is highly imaginative, so creative energy can also surge. If you're the creative type, there can be inspiration all around, and recognition for creativity may be plentiful. We can appreciate the beauty in creative expression, and use creativity to quietly say what we may not actually be saying.
Pisces is the very last Zodiac sign, so it's also connected to endings, and it may feel like something big is coming to an end in some way. We can take time to be more introspective, to turn inward and reflect, and to look at the past and try to understand all that has come to pass. We can tap into our subconscious minds and figure out subconscious motivations, and tackle subconscious issues. This can be a great time for deep letting go, for moving on, and for releasing unhealthy baggage.
Pisces also connects to the 12th house, which rules the hidden, so we may become more aware of things that have been under the radar and out of our view. Some of this may be good, and we get information and data points to use to make better decisions. But some of this may be things coming out that would be better gotten rid of, and maybe it's time to do just that.
Also want to note that Jupiter used to be the ruler of Pisces (before Neptune came along), so Jupiter does feel at ease here, and that makes all of this energy a bit easier.
On a personal level, you can experience any or all of this in the areas of life ruled by the house(s) Jupiter in Pisces tours in your natal chart.
How Jupiter in Pisces Differs From Jupiter in Aquarius
Jupiter in Aquarius is more focused on the external, bringing new people into your life, new experiences, and opening us up to the unconventional. We want to be more independent and individuals. With Jupiter in Pisces, we're far more concerned about others, and want to do as much as we can to be of help.
Aquarius is also an air sign, focused on the mind, while Pisces is a fluid water and mutable sign. Not only is emotion more important, but intuition. Aquarius likes to think things through thoroughly (being one of the signs of the expert), while Pisces can go purely by intuition. Sometimes this does get Pisces in trouble, but it's trying to get us to have strong connections to our own inner guides.
Special Periods During Jupiter in Pisces
You can tell right off of the bat that Jupiter in Pisces comes with ruler Neptune in Pisces, and they officially conjunct (align) once on April 12th 2022 (at 23 degrees). This amplifies the impact of Pisces big time, especially since both rulers (the traditional ruler in Jupiter and modern ruler in Neptune) being in Pisces. It's great for Pisces! And all those Pisces things. So be intuitive, creative, imaginative, compassionate, release, and understand.
Jupiter is also sextile (positive aspect, 2 signs away) both Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn, so it's playing nice with the outer planets. It hits Uranus first (February 17th 2022 @ 11 degrees), and this can help us with making changes, doing things differently, embracing the unconventional, being individuals, and working for the collective. With Pluto, this comes May 3rd 2022 (28 degrees), with Pluto turning retrograde April 29th 2022 sextile, so this one is in effect for several weeks. It helps with transforming, growing personal power, being productive, and creating positive changes on a large scale.
Mars is in Pisces with Jupiter starting April 14th 2022; Mars is in Pisces until May 24th 2022, but Jupiter exits Pisces May 10th, so they're only together in Pisces for about a month and they don't conjunct at any point. Still, Mars is the planet of energy and drive, so this can amplify the Pisces energy even more, and we can strive to do more to help others, to finish or get rid of something, or to make use of creativity.
A new moon occurs on March 2nd 2022 in Pisces that is conjunct Jupiter in Pisces, so this can be an excellent time for new beginnings related to Pisces. We may start new creative and artistic projects, new ventures that help others, or focus on new spiritual pursuits.
When Jupiter re-enters Pisces on October 28th 2022 for its last few months in this sign, Mars will turn retrograde (appear to move backward) 2 days later on October 30th in Gemini square (hard aspect, 3 signs away) Jupiter in Pisces. This doesn't go exact, but it does amplify the aggressive energy of Mars retrograde at the start. There's also a solar eclipse in Scorpio October 25th, a few days before Jupiter re-enters Pisces, and a lunar eclipse November 8th in Taurus triggered by Uranus. So, most of the tour for Jupiter in Pisces is quite nice, but the end might be a big mess! Super aggressive energy with Mars retrograde, highly emotional with the eclipses, and some unexpected developments and irrational behavior with Uranus. We will definitely need to be cautious and careful at that point in 2022!
Jupiter in Pisces Conjunct the Outer Planets in Your Natal Chart
No one alive now (unless you're a vampire, anyway) has Pluto in Pisces; Neptune is currently in Pisces, so those babies born now and in the last few years since Neptune has been in Pisces have Jupiter connecting with their Neptune. Since they're babies and really young children, this may not seem super obvious externally, but they're likely going to be more sensitive in all ways (and probably sweeter), benefit from creative projects (break out the paint brushes!), and they'll need their parents to be more mindful of protecting their boundaries (since kids can't really protect their own).
Most of the group of teenagers now have Uranus in Pisces (born between 2003 and 2011), so if you've got a pre-teen or teenager (or you are one - do your parents know you're reading this???), this means Jupiter will align with their Uranus. Uranus is the planet of rebellion, so watch for more of that! haha They're going to want more freedom to be themselves and experiment, so give them some space to dye their hair green (or something). At the same time, make sure they know they have their place at home/with the family so they can feel safe enough as they venture outside of their comfort zones.
Final Thought -
Overall, this is a very pleasant transit for most of it, and we just need to be more thoughtful and deliberate coming out of it to end 2022. In the meantime, make the most of the sweet energy - be creative and intuitive and understanding!
