How Jupiter in Aries 2022-2023 Impacts You
Jupiter in Aries is a time to get up and GO! Aries is the sign that connects to new beginnings since it's the very first Zodiac sign and connects to the 1st house. We can focus on new ventures, new beginnings, and new journeys. We're out with the old and in with the new!
Aries is the leader, the pioneer, the one who takes initiative and isn't afraid of action. We're likely not sitting around with Jupiter in Aries. Once we know what we want, we go for it without hesitation. Now, we do need to think a little bit before taking action, but Aries can be pretty impulsive!
Aries is enthusiastic and easily excited. It wants to focus on whatever energizes it. It can throw itself into something new quickly and get it running fast. But, it can also get bored easily, so we have to work on seeing things through to the end.
Aries is super high energy as a fire sign and a cardinal sign. It has plenty of energy to use and doesn't want to waste time. We can have extra energy and drive, and find ways to motivate ourselves.
This can also be a good time for improving our confidence, being more sure of ourselves, and embracing our identities. We can put our face out there and feel solid about what we're presenting.
On a personal level, you can experience any or all of this in the areas of life ruled by the house(s) Jupiter in Aries tours in your natal chart.
How Jupiter in Aries Differs From Jupiter in Pisces
Aries and Pisces are pretty different signs! Aries is loud and Pisces is quiet. Aries is the start and Pisces is the end. Aries takes the lead and Pisces gets lost. Super different!
Jupiter in Pisces has been more spiritual and creative. Aries is like, enough pondering, let's take action! Instead of waiting for the right moment, Jupiter in Aries creates the right moment.
Special Periods During Jupiter in Aries
Mars joins Jupiter in Aries quickly, touring Aries May 24th to July 5th 2022, and conjuncting (aligning with) Jupiter on May 29th 2022 at 3 degrees Aries. Mars is the natural ruler of Aries, so this really increases the impact of Aries. This is amazing energy for a new start, though we may have to wait until the Mercury retrograde ends June 3rd 2022. If we have any second chances to pursue, this can be an awesome time for it.
Chiron is in Aries the entire time Jupiter is in Aries, and they conjunct on March 12th 2023 at 14 degrees Aries. This can be super helpful for healing and growth, spiritually, personally, and physically. Chiron in Aries has been a challenge for the pandemic, and Jupiter in Aries with it can help make it better, or make it worse (since Jupiter expands - whichever way we're going, we'll go further at that point).
The conjunction to Chiron is the only major aspect Jupiter makes to the other slow planets (semisextiles Uranus on March 19th 2023 and semisextiles Neptune on May 2nd 2023; no aspects to Saturn or Pluto). So, that aspect is likely going to be very important.
When Jupiter exits Aries on October 28th 2022, Mars turns retrograde 2 days later on October 30th, so that time may be super high energy, we may feel super off, and things can get super wonky. Once again, it's good for second chances and do-overs, but likely not for anything brand new.
At the end of Jupiter in Aries, both Saturn and Pluto change signs in March 2023, Saturn entering Pisces and Pluto entering Aquarius. We may have an entirely new focus starting in 2023, needing to make major transformations for the future, and needing to learn how to share with the collective. Saturn in Pisces and Pluto in Aquarius are not about the individual *at all*, but Jupiter in Aries is, so Jupiter may be there to remind us to not neglect ourselves.
Jupiter in Aries Conjunct the Outer Planets in Your Natal Chart
No one alive now (aside of the vampires) has Pluto or Neptune in Aries. If you're really young (born after 2011) or really old (80-something), you may have Uranus in Aries. This means Jupiter in Aries aligns with your Uranus, the planet of rebellion, independence, innovation, and the masses. You may be more inclined to do things on your own, in your own way, and unconventionally, and may want to have a positive impact on the world. But make sure you're doing it safely!
Final Notes on Jupiter in Aries
Jupiter in Aries is a quick shot through this sign, which is sorta fitting considering Aries is so high energy and wants to go-go-go. Of course it won't let Jupiter stick around for long! It'll be important to make the most of it initially with Mars in Aries too since that seems to give the biggest boost.

Mars in astrology
Mars is the planet of energy and drive. Whichever sign it's touring, we get lots of energy and feel driven to pursue matters ruled by the Zodiac sign it's in.
On a personal level, you tend to see this in the areas of life ruled by the house transit Mars is touring, and whatever the natal planet or body rules that Mars aspects.

Mars in Pisces 2022 General Impact:
Mars in Pisces can spur us on to pursue spiritual projects and ventures. We can be more inspired to do something that we're spiritually connected to, and if you're unsure about your spirituality, you may experiment and make it more of a priority to figure it out.
Pisces rules endings, so we may bring more matters to the finish line, wanting to make room for when Mars is in Aries, ruler of new beginnings.
Pisces rules intuition, so we can sharpen our intuitive connections, and those who already have done that can have killer instincts now. You can let your inner guide show you what you've been missing.
Pisces also rules imagination, so this can be a highly creative period, and we can make use of creative and artistic talents. We pursue creative projects, and quietly work to make progress.
Pisces rules compassion and empathy too, so we can strive to be more understanding, and do more to help others. We can make sacrifices if needed.
Neptune is also in Pisces, conjuncting (aligning with) Mars on May 18th 2022 at 25 degrees. This increases the Pisces energy tenfold since Neptune rules Pisces, and we're super spiritual, imaginative, intuitive, and compassionate. Jupiter is in Pisces with the two until May 10th (but doesn't conjunct Mars in Pisces). This can help open up new opportunities for spiritual and creative ventures, developing intuition, and doing more for others.
Mars is in Pisces until May 24th, and is anaretic in Pisces May 23rd and 24th. This means Mars is at 29 degrees, which is called the anaretic degree, and is the last degree of any sign. In transit, this can be a point of crisis energy, so we may see someone in great need that we have to figure out a way to help, something hidden may come to light, something big may come to an end, or we may have to push through foggy energy (ruled by Pisces).
Aside of the conjunction to Neptune, Mars in Pisces will also sextile (positive aspect, two signs away) Uranus in Taurus on May 4th at 14 degrees. This can help push us outside of our comfort zones to try out new, unconventional methods, and we can work independently. Mars in Pisces will also sextile Pluto in Capricorn on May 22nd at 28 degrees, and this can help us transform, find personal power, and find what we need to find.
Mars in Pisces is also in play with the eclipses during this time as it's sextile the April 30th Taurus solar eclipse and trine the May 16th Scorpio lunar eclipse. This gives good energy and drive for whatever we're doing or dealing with when it comes to these eclipses, and we don't need to worry too much about Mars getting in the way.

Chiron in astrology
Technically, Chiron is classified as a comet (that designation has changed though, so who knows!), but in astrology, we usually call it an asteroid. Chiron is the "Wounded Healer", and connects with our greatest wounds in life, but also how we can heal best.
Your natal Chiron shows where you should focus your healing most, how, and also offers a place of quiet power and internal growth. It's not the most comfortable, but ultimately necessary.
In transit, Chiron brings this energy to whatever it's touching in your natal chart. The natal house transit Chiron occupies gets this healing focus, but it may come with some old wounds being picked open first.
If you have any of the houses cusps at a critical or anaretic degree, or have natal Saturn, Uranus, or Pluto in them, or any intercepted planets in them, the block/challenges that they represent can get more focus while Chiron is touring that house. You can focus on the wounds that have come as a result of that position and the healing that needs to be done to overcome and use it positively.
