Hope you’re having having a wonderful week!
In this newsletter, I wanted to highlight a period of about 3 weeks, when Venus joins Jupiter in Pisces. Long time readers of this newsletter will know that Jupiter has been transiting through Pisces since April 14th 2022, and will leave Pisces on April 21st 2023. From February 16th to March 11th 2023, Venus joins the party in Pisces briefly, making for an extremely positive 3 weeks. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, of growth, and of progress, and Venus is the planet of love, relationships, beauty, and material enjoyment. In Pisces, both planets express their energies at an extremely high level, sharing their love and light with the whole world.
An example of a person with their Jupiter and Venus in Pisces is Drew Barrymore, who has both planets in her 11th house:
This placement in Barrymore’s chart brings great wealth, and a wonderful relationship with a large community of people. In her case, these placements expressed themselves as making her a famous and wealthy actress. Barrymore was born during her Jupiter main period, which emphasized this favorable placement even while she was still a baby. This manifested clearly in her life - she was cast in her first role when she was just 11 months old, and at age 7, achieved widespread fame when the movie ET was released.
So, back to your life - how does this transit affect you personally? I’ve written out some mini-predictions to try and answer this question. Of course, there are many other factors 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): This transit may bring nice experiences with your spiritual practice, so if you find yourself drawn to practices like meditation or yoga or ceremony, you may find this period to be especially productive in your spiritual growth. It may help you uncover greater intuitive ability, and / or bring inspiration from the depths of your unconscious mind.
Taurus (May 15th to June 14th): This transit brings nice experiences with groups of people, and also brings positive social connections with your community and society. If one of your new year’s resolutions was to make new friends or build out your network, you may find that putting yourself out there and meeting more people during this transit will be especially productive in actualizing this desire.
Gemini (June 14th to July 16th): This transit can bring opportunities for professional growth and career success. You may find yourself taking on new responsibilities or receiving recognition for your work during this time. This transit can also bring nicer relationships with your boss and coworkers, which can be used as a springboard that benefits you beyond the duration of this transit.
Cancer (July 17th to August 16th): This transit can bring a tendency for you to expand your personal worldview and to learn new things. It’s a good time to broaden your horizons by seeking knowledge from books, institutions, teachers, traveling, or ceremonies. It’s also a good time to explore new ideas or new places, and develop a more expansive understanding of both the material and spiritual realms.
Leo (August 17th to September 16th): This transit can bring a time of transformation and change, both psychologically and externally. You can use the energies of this transit to plumb the depths of your psyche and develop a better understanding of yourself, ushering in a period of personal growth and emotional well-being. Alternatively, if you have anything in your life that is no longer serving you, you can use this transit to make changes externally in your life as well.
Virgo (September 17th to October 16th): This transit can bring amazing experiences with romantic relationships, client relationships, and partnerships of all kinds. It brings expansion, abundance, harmony, beauty, and charm to these areas of life. If you’re single, it’s a good time to go on more dates; if you’re looking for more clients, it’s a good time to advertise; and if you’re looking for a good business partner, it’s a good time to go out and meet more people. Enjoy!
Libra (October 17th to November 15th): This transit can bring improvements to your health situation and / or health routine. If you’re struggling with any health issues, you should see some improvement through this transit. And if you’re already really healthy, this is a good period to improve your health routine - the transit brings a nice tailwind in all matters related to health.
Scorpio (November 16th to December 15th): This transit can bring a period of growth and expansion in your creativity, self-expression, and love life. Venus’s and Jupiter’s transit here brings abundance, beauty, and harmony with all creative pursuits, including even the act of creating a child. This is a good time to explore new creative pursuits, and work on existing creative projects, and if you’re single, it is also a good time to go out and meet more people.
Sagittarius (December 16th to January 14th): This transit can bring an expansion in your home life and family relationships. It is supportive in improving your relationships with family members, or with enjoying their company and have a good time with them. It is also a good time to make any improvements to your home that you’ve been putting off, like buying a new couch or meditation cushion or something. Lastly, this transit can bring a tailwind to improving your emotional wellbeing, and so if you’ve been particularly stressed or unhappy over the last few months, a bit of introspection can go a long way during this period.
Capricorn (January 15th to February 12th): This transit can bring a time of growth and expansion with your communication and learning. It can bring you more charming and charismatic speech, and more harmonious relationships with the people around you. It can also bring a nice tailwind if you’re trying to learn something. Lastly, it can also bring you beautiful and abundant experiences with short-distance travel, so it’s a great time for you to set out on a road trip.
Aquarius (Feb 13th March 14th): This transit can bring wealth and abundance to your life. Jupiter and Venus are transiting your house of family, of money, and of food, bringing nice material experiences and improvements in these areas of life. If you’ve been gunning for a raise at work, or have any launches planned in your business, this will be a good time to commence.
Pisces (March 15th to April 13th): This transit brings expansive and positive experiences with your self-expression and physical appearance. It can temporarily make you seem even more charming and good looking than you normally are, and make you even more likable by your friends, acquaintances, and coworkers. It is a good time to go out and network, to meet more people, and to make progress in your career, all of which can be used as a springboard that benefits you beyond the duration of this transit.
Hope you enjoy these very pleasant 3 weeks, till next time!
