JUPITER ENTERS PISCES FOR A BRIEF STAY ON 13 MAY 2021
After a really quick run through the sign of Aquarius, Jupiter will briefly enter the sign of Pisces on the 13th of May where it will remain for 76 days after which it will retrograde back into Aquarius on the 28th July. During that time Jupiter will cover only the first two degrees of the sign, passing through them twice (first direct and then retrograde).
Jupiter is the traditional night-time ruler of Pisces, only more recently was Neptune assigned as modern co-ruler and the two will conjoin in Pisces in April 2022.
Jupiter is a hot moist, masculine planet whilst Pisces is a cold moist, nocturnal and feminine sign.
The last time Jupiter transited the sign of Pisces was in 2010. What was going on in your life then?
Here’s an excerpt from astrologer Ingrid Lund’s article on Jupiter through the signs taken from the Astrological Journal, June 1961, p20:
“Jupiter in Pisces has the same kindly instincts, taken a step further into philanthropy or self-sacrifice. Sometimes it is not so much self-sacrifice as self-disguise, for the infinite adaptability of Pisces makes it very much the actor Sign. The true character actor who loses his own personality in the role he is playing. But acting is only one way of externalising an exaggerated instinct to merge. At a high level, this is mysticism and unity with the Godhead. At a more mundane level there is secret or behind-the scenes work, where the ego is submerged and gets no immediate credit for the work performed.
This can exaggerate the muddles of Pisces, the vagueness and lack of practical common sense. It can also increase the escapist tendencies of this Sign.:. love of drink, drugs and sensationalism. But the faults of Jupiter, though irritating, are always due to an amiable intemperance; an inability to put on the brakes.”
We all know that Jupiter is the planet of expansion and is associated with knowledge, truth, travel to foreign countries, politics, legal issues, religion, culture, open-mindedness etc.
The sign of Pisces on the other hand offers virtues such as; compassion, imagination, secretiveness, gullibility, self-indulgence, weak-will, deception, not forgetting its tendency towards victimhood and martyrdom etc.
So, what might we expect from Jupiter in Pisces?
Religious issues (Jupiter) will probably be at the forefront, the who might be right (Jupiter) versus the who is supposedly wrong (Pisces).
New laws (Jupiter) regarding substance abuse (Pisces) and its victims (Pisces) may also be on the agenda of the more progressed countries (Jupiter).
Travel to foreign destinations (Jupiter) may also be finally on the agenda for many of us after months of isolation (Pisces).
There may be secret (Pisces) negotiations (Jupiter) between foreign countries (Jupiter) at a political (Jupiter) level.
Expansion (Jupiter) of self-indulgence and/or self-deceit (Pisces) could also be topics brought up by this transit.
Inflation (Jupiter) and distortion (Neptune) of the truth (Jupiter) delivered by the media (Jupiter-Neptune).
The above are only a few of the many possibilities available. However, some of the above-mentioned topics concerning religious matters already occurred during the 2010 transit and there is one small piece concerning the present day. Please follow the links in the bibliography for more information.

“freedom of faith is coming under increasing pressure. The report – which detailed religious freedom up until the end of 2010 and is the third such survey Pew has carried out – says it identified a four-year high involving “harassment or intimidation of particular religious groups” – including five out of seven of the main religious groupings – including Jews, Christians, Buddhists and adherents of folk or traditional religions.”
