*Whether astrology is science or magic, we’re open to most things, if they may be of benefit. ~ Ed.
*Vedic Astrology, or Jyotish, is one of the oldest sciences on the planet and considered a relative of astronomy. It is an important and valuable part of the ancient Vedic texts. This complex, logic-based and also intuitive science, has survived thousands of years in India’s Vedic tradition and is still considered a highly valuable tool of guidance and life insight. It is not a religion, but rather a philosophical understanding of human and cosmic existence. In Sanskrit, jyoti means light. Essentially, the study of jyotish is the study of light and how we interact with the cosmic light—within us and within the cosmos. Vedic astrology, or the sidereal approach to astrology, casts charts differently than Western, or Tropical astrology. The meanings, implications and purpose of jyotish is therefore different, as are the details used for prediction and the indications given below.
Guidance for Jupiter’s Transit Through Pisces
Jupiter is a planet of sattva, purity. His intention is to purify what is impure and to awaken pure knowledge. He prefers the spiritual realms and offers spiritual support and guidance when well-placed in the natal chart.
When we go against him, he can be overpowering in his attempts to bring us back to spiritual harmony and balance. When strong, he brings us pure knowledge, wisdom, and support. When he is weak, he disrupts our ability to receive wisdom, support, and proper guidance—which can have dire impact on our dharmic path.
As the planet of expansion, satwa (purity) and akasha (space), Jupiter brings us knowledge and wisdom as well as new awareness. The Sanskrit name for Jupiter is guru (teacher), expressing the support and nourishment he provides. As Jupiter moves around the zodiac, he sparks learning and growth through wisdom, guidance, support, and resources. Whatever he touches, he expands—which may feel helpful or uncomfortable at times.
Jupiter transits are roughly one year long and impact all levels of wisdom, knowledge, comfort, and support. He leads you to your dharmic path and supports the nourishment gained along the way. Positive effects of Jupiter bring comfort, support, and understanding. He brings learning through greater awareness and expansion of consciousness—which, of course, is not always comfortable. He is the ultimate teacher (for better or worse), providing some of the most poignant life lessons.
Challenges with Jupiter include lack of support, knowledge, and dharma. When Jupiter is not strong in the chart, there may be little to no support offered, few resources, or missed opportunities. Dharma may be impossible to find with a weak or challenging Jupiter in the natal chart. Everyone can benefit from the helpful and supportive resources that Jupiter provides. However, without his support, challenges and struggles increase—which often bring tragedy, trauma, and chaos.
As the guru, he represents teachers of all sorts—including coaches, healers, guides, mentors, therapists, wisdom keepers, and shaman. Receiving the blessings of Jupiter requires that you allow the nourishment and wisdom of this type of support to be received. Negative influences upon Jupiter in the jyotish chart will create challenging experiences with teachers and a resistance to knowledge and wisdom. Whereas positive influences upon Jupiter in the jyotish chart will offer nourishing and supportive experiences with teachers, wisdom, and guides.
If Jupiter is a naturally benefic, or positive planet, in your chart, the coming transit may be offset slightly. Jupiter loves dharma, right action, spiritual gifts, and wisdom. He is a great support for aligning and clarifying your dharmic path. Using this time wisely will be important for making progress on your path and getting soul level support.
If Jupiter is not a positive resource for you, this transit can offer certain challenges with knowledge, wisdom, guidance and support—especially for your dharmic path. You may lose support, be forced to restructure, face hardships, and lack of resources.
The impact of a weak Jupiter would have been most felt as he moved through Capricorn and will have improved with his entry into Aquarius.
Notice what comes to light and take action. For everyone, a Jupiter yagya is strongly recommended for this transit to buffer the vulnerabilities.
Do you have the right kind of support right now?
Do you have enough support for the cycles ahead?
Do you have the spiritual support you need?
Where do you need to ask for more support and guidance?
Jupiter transits his own sign of Pisces from April 13th, 2022 until April 21st, 2023.
Jupiter retrogrades July 29th, 2022 and then goes direct on November 24th, 2022.
Jupiter loves Pisces! This year-long transit will provide support and guidance through wisdom, pure knowledge, the spiritual realms, intuition, and dharma—depending on your natal relationship with him.
Use this time to strengthen your spiritual team of support and awaken your dharmic path!
