Since the end of 2020 Jupiter has been moving through Aquarius. It’s not the best sign for Jupiter to be in, especially as Saturn is also in Aquarius. However on May 13 2021, at 11.36 pm London time, Jupiter changes sign, and moves into Pisces. This should be good news – Jupiter is the the ruler of Pisces, and as a result we’re going to be more optimistic. Perhaps we’ll feel that COVID-19 is finally over, and we can start chasing our dreams.
It is worth considering other times when Jupiter entered Pisces:
October 28 2022
December 29 2021
May 13 2021
January 18 2010
September 9 2010
February 4 1998
February 20 1986
March 8 1974
March 25 1962
December 1 1950
April 15 1950
October 30 1939
December 29 1938
May 14 1938
September 11 1927
January 18 1927
February 4 1915
Jupiter has a cycle of just under 12 years. However, there are periods in its orbit where it appears to go backwards. This means it can go into Pisces, go back into Aquarus, then return to Pisces. It can even enter Pisces three times in a cycle: enter Pisces from Aquarius twice, and enter Pisces from Aries, while moving retrograde. I have listed a century of Jupiter going into Pisces, from 1915 through to 1922. I don’t really want to try too hard to find patterns, because I don’t want to be accused of being a meaning machine. We have to look at each situation individually.
One has to think what Jupiter in Pisces might mean, in the currewnt context. It is about the reaction to the state control of people’s lives while Jupiter was in Capricorn and Aquarius. Things are going to get better, and we may see objective evidence that we’ve turned a corner. We might see this in terms of higher asset prices – for example, stocks. Jupiter is also the planet of inflation, and given people are already worried about rising prices, this could become a reality between May 13 and July 28, when Jupiter goes back into Aquarius. After July 28, Jupiter loses strength, and the optimism of the early summer is likely to drain away.
Interestingly, over the next two years Jupiter goes into Pisces three times. The first time is May 13 2021. The next time is December 29 2021, when Jupiter returns to Pisces after its revisit of Aquarius. The final time is October 28 2022, when it goes back into Pisces after entering Aries. So we are talking about a process rather than just an event. It’s the attempt to maintain a positive view of the world, against mounting evidence that things are moving from bad to worse. The last time there was a triple Pisces ingress was in 1938 and 1939, in the run-up to the Second World War. For a number of reasons the world will be a more dangerous place, and if we listen carefully we can hear the distant drums of war. But I don’t think that it will be until 2022 that the US is forced to seriously ramp its military activities.
If you’re a Republican, Jupiter moving into Pisces should be good news. Traditionally Jupiter rules the GOP, and Saturn the Democrats. Over the last few years Jupiter has been in Saturn-ruled signs, while Saturn has been in signs of its own rulership. Jupiter’s movement into Pisces allows the Republicans to break free from past restrictions, and at the time of next year’s mid-terms it will still be in Pisces. Perhaps the Republicans will benefit politically from rocketing inflation and a deteriorating geopolitical situation? This will in turn pave the way for a Republican to win in 2024, especially if Kamala Harris is the presidential candidate – but more of that later.
I really think things are now taking a turn for the worse…
You may be right, but I think there might be a brief respite. Of course we have got worries about the Indian variant, plus events in Gaza.
Good article Archie, it’s does feel that those drums of war may be closer to American ears. Perhaps it’s a revolutionary period all over the world. Previous Pluto in Aquarius phases are all periods of great change.
Ian, thanks for the kind words, but I am not too sure about what I wrote. There doesn’t seem to be much relief with Jupiter going into Pisces. I am also trying to work out the astrology of the collapse in cryptocurrency prices.
