Jupiter leaves the waters of Pisces on May 10th and enters the fires of Aries until October 28th. It will re-enter Aries for a second showing on December 20th, taking us into the New Year. Jupiter expands. This planet was almost a second sun in our solar system. It amplifies everything it touches and reminds us to look at our potential. In Aries, it amplifies the self, our courage, and our motivation to take action. Remember, Aries is the sign of the warrior. This energy reminds us to fight for what we love and have the courage to align with our soul’s purpose above anything else in this world.
As Jupiter makes its way into Aries, we will feel a collective shift towards action. This period is a time to ask yourself what you want out of life and then have the courage to make it happen. On a global level, prepare to see some genuine acts of courage and warrior spirit. We are already witnessing this with the heroic efforts in Ukraine and the many people speaking their truth about women’s rights in the streets of the US. Fighting for what we believe requires a strong sense of self— something Aries helps us define. Jupiter is about to amplify these acts and bring us closer to who we are, what we want, and what we need to do to get it.
Jupiter is also the planet of luck and abundance. It dares us to take chances in our life to find our potential. It wants us to become a Sun — big, bright, and full of life. It reminds us of our unique magic and illuminates where we are not living up to the possibility of our soul. Aries directs our attention to our soul’s purpose and journey this lifetime. It encourages us to climb the mountain that is only ours to climb. It motivates us to start on a new path, one aligned with who we are meant to be in this life. It asks that we take the path that scares and excites us all at the same time.
As you work this transit, feel what you are ready to leap into. Ask yourself if you have been hiding from your potential and why. Also, have the courage to take steps on your path that you know in your heart you need to take. Take action, and instead of looking back, keep looking forward. Fight for what you love in your heart and continually return back to your soul’s purpose to find your inner compass. Above all, let yourself expand. Expand past what you thought was possible, expand past your fears, and expand past your self-imposed limitations. Let this transit inspire you.
Do be careful of falling into some of the traps of Jupiter in Aries. Keep your ego in check. If you find yourself fighting just for the sake of fighting— let it go. Notice if you are starting to think too highly of yourself, a little humility can go a long way. Also, notice if you are being too bold in your actions and not allowing your intuition or logic to speak.
Also, be aware that some people may not be able to handle or channel this energy. It is a lot to work within the energetic body. You could notice people becoming hot-tempered for no reason or putting themselves in positions that could only be called overly brazen and idiotic. Have compassion for them, but also stand clear. This can be a self-destructive time. If others around you are falling prey to this cosmic energy, attempt to help them out of it but also know that the first step is to put your own oxygen mask on first. You may have to make a choice between persevering your own energy or pulling someone else out of a dumpster fire of their own making. Align with Aries to choose yourself.
Overall though, this promises to be a transit with much potential. If you find yourself standing at the edge of your destiny, dare to jump into a new realm, one that can meet your potential and the person you are meant to be. You may lose some people on the way, but that’s just a necessary part of growth. Allow yourself to reach for your inner Sun over the next few months and become brighter, bolder, and more magical than ever before.
