Jupiter in Aries
Jupiter is the principle of expansion. Since the first of the year, Jupiter has been in Pisces, expanding our emotional connection with others and our spiritual connection with the Divine. Because the shadow of Pisces is confusion, we have also experienced doubt and overwhelm, uncertainty about who and what we have connected with, and what we are to do with the information we receive. There will be no such confusion with Jupiter in Aries.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and represents the life force energy required to initiate something new. This is The Warrior - fiery, determined, competitive and impulsive.
In Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Jupiter is allied with Horus, the Young King. To the ancient Egyptians, Horus was the symbol of a new era; a new way of being, thinking and doing. After his father Osiris was killed by Set (Mars), Horus fought an extended battle with Set to claim his throne. In Roman and Greek myth, Jupiter/Zeus killed his father, freeing his brothers and sisters from imprisonment and rising to power in his father's place. Aries was the Greek god of war, known as Mars to the Romans. Jupiter transiting Aries brings energy that is focused and determined, capable of overcoming obstacles and producing desired results.
The Warrior archetype must be tempered by love or it can cross over into terrible cruelty. This is the greatest challenge of our present moment. Can we bring forth the expansive, creative, dedicated, and productive energy of Jupiter in Aries without losing touch with kindness and compassion?
Jupiter will be in Aries from May 10, 2022 to May 16, 2023, with a brief reentry into Pisces from October 28 to December 20, 2022.
