I can’t believe we’re already at the halfway point of 2022 - time flies when you’re having fun! (and doubly fast when you have a 2 year old at home..) Hope you’re all having a wonderful 2022 so far!
Before we get into the main topic of this newsletter, let’s briefly go through the astrology of our challenged supply chains. A few months ago, in April 2022, Jupiter moved into its home sign of Pisces, bringing its natural abundance and positivity into the world. I thought this would have been just what the doctor ordered after 2 gloomy pandemic years, and Jupiter definitely delivered - most economies around the world bounced back strongly after the COVID restrictions fell away. However, supply chains have not been able to keep up, and this was exacerbated with the energy shortages stemming from Putin’s invasion. As we have all seen, this is a recipe for inflation, and as central banks raise interest rates, a possible recession looms.
My prediction astrologically is that I think growth will start to slow as we get closer to April 2023, when Jupiter leaves Pisces. I also think that the inflation problems will begin to fade to the background as we get closer to the middle of 2023. As Jupiter moves out of its home sign of Pisces in April 2023, our overheated economy will probably start to cool. Who knew exiting a pandemic would be so complicated!
Jupiter in Pisces, Saturn in Capricorn
From July 13th 2022 to January 18th 2023, Saturn will once again be transiting through Capricorn. This will be the final time in 30 years that Saturn will be in Capricorn, so enjoy it while it lasts.
While Saturn hangs out in Capricorn for the next 6 months, the planet will be aspecting (looking at) Jupiter in Pisces, and both Saturn and Jupiter will be co-aspecting the constellation of Cancer. There’s a saying in Vedic Astrology that Jupiter brings optimism and Saturn brings actualization, and so when both planets are looking at the same sign, it activates that sign in a way that produces noticeable results. And so consequently, over the next 6 months till January 18th 2023, the signs of Pisces and Cancer will be activated by both Jupiter’s and Saturn’s aspects, and these energies will bring an uplift in the areas of life where Pisces and Cancer touch in your personal birth chart.
As an example, let’s look at Lisa Kudrow’s birth chart, the actress who played Phoebe in Friends (“Smelly cat, smelly cat…”) -
In her chart, Jupiter is in Pisces in her 10th house, her house of career, and Saturn is in Capricorn, the same astrological configuration mentioned above. This leads to the double Jupiter / Saturn influence on both Kudrow’s house of career, and also her 2nd house (money), where the constellation of Cancer falls. This is a fortunate configuration to have in a birth chart, tying together career and wealth, and enabling the person to earn money easily from career. And this has definitely come true in Lisa’s career as an actress.
So, back to your life - how does the double Jupiter / Saturn influence on Cancer and Pisces affect you? I’ve written out some mini-predictions to try and answer this question. Of course, there are many other things that fill out the picture of your life (most of it individualized from your birth chart), but this transit will show one small perspective. I have arranged these mini predictions according to your Vedic Sun signs; you can find your Vedic Sun sign by finding which date range includes your birthday. Please read the birth times carefully as your Vedic Sun sign can be different from your Western one (reason here). If you know your Vedic Ascendant sign or your Vedic Moon sign, the predictions corresponding to those signs are also applicable to you.
Aries (April 14th to May 14th): The transit is a great time to build a stronger foundation for your spiritual progress. It’s a good time to delve deeper into your subconscious and to decide what’s useful to retain going forward. Alternatively / additionally, this transit brings momentum for you to move homes.
