Astro Alert: Jupiter retrograde in Pisces•
Posted on October 07 2022
For the following two months, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and faith, will move through compassionate Pisces one more time, supporting us to revisit this past year’s opportunities before he moves into fiery Aries for good.
Until the end of the year, we can benefit from this transit’s dreamy, magical energy: these are great months for spiritual activity, creative pursuits, and charitable actions.
Jupiter retrograde in Pisces:
October 28 – November 23
Jupiter, the planet of abundance and expansion, has been moving through headstrong Aries since May, feeding our desire for novelty, risk, and self-expression. This transit has awakened our instincts, amplifying conflict around the world (Jupiter is known for overdoing things; in Aries, it can be excessive in his desire to win and conquer), but also supporting many of us to grow in courage or discover our entrepreneurial spirit. From October 28 to December 20, Jupiter waltzes back into dreamy Pisces, wrapping up an old cycle of emotional and spiritual growth before energizing us to take the initiative one more time.
Jupiter is all about faith, optimism, and seeing the bigger picture. In Pisces, the last (and the most mysterious!) sign of the zodiac, he feels at home, supporting us with strong creative and intuitive vibes. Because this is a mystical and inspiring energy, November and December can be great months for (re)connecting with our spiritual side, asking the big questions of life, and enjoying the activities that help us nurture creativity and flow.
Jupiter will retrograde in Pisces for one month, from October 28 to November 23. Between November 23 and December 20, he will retrace his retrograde steps and help us move forward, especially in the life area ruled by Pisces in the birth chart. Where are you being called to revisit opportunities that you had earlier this year, especially since May? During this transit, we can gain a deeper insight into recent areas of growth and opportunity. Especially if progress has been slower than usual, November and December can help us realize how it’s been useful to wait, reflect, and reconsider before taking a leap of faith.
Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius can go through emotional and spiritual changes at the end of this year: these signs are supported to go within and focus on healing. An emotionally difficult situation can be resolved at this time. For Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, Jupiter retrograde in Pisces can bring back old opportunities linked to relationships or communication. These signs are supported to think big; they can regain their sense of optimism and take new leaps of faith!
For Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, the following months bring reconsiderations, extra awareness, and eventual growth in the professional and financial areas. Past opportunities can return in November and old problems can find a solution with more ease toward the end of the year. Finally, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are going through a process of personal development. Jupiter retrograde supports these signs to check in with their values and align their actions with their intentions of growth.
For all signs, this transit is a great opportunity to reflect on the past year’s progress, especially in terms of emotional, spiritual, and creative development. Jupiter in Pisces is a dreamy transit that facilitates our connection with spirit and supports us to find growth (Jupiter) through sensitivity, intuition, and compassion (Pisces). How did this year help you understand more about yourself and about the things that unite us as human beings? How did you get the chance to show empathy and acceptance to yourself and others? November and December can reconnect us with deeper truths, while also challenging us to see things clearly and set boundaries where we’ve overextended in the past.
