The planet Jupiter moves through the solar system at an even pace, changing zodiac signs about once a year. It is quite convenient that the big planet is moving into a new sign so soon after the calendar new year, and even more convenient that it will be in that sign for the entire year. Jupiter enters Pisces on January 17 and remains there until January 22 of 2011. As it moves through the zodiac’s twelfth sign, it influences life here on earth.
Jupiter is the biggest planet in the solar system and the second largest body in astrology after the Sun. It is no surprise then, that Jupiter rules big events, expansions, benefits, bonuses and other things in life that are defined by dominating the space they are in.
The zodiac sign of Pisces is the area of the cosmos that rules our inspired but elusive goals. Pisces has a great capacity to take in large amounts of disparate information and mull it all over in order to find hidden connections. Pisces may seem murky, but it reflects an accurate portrait of our emotional responses. This is a sign that follows its own rules but understands the way society works on a deeper level than those who blindly obey the letter of the law.
When Jupiter is in Pisces it inspires all of us to loosen up a little, to consider a new belief system, to think outside the box, to donate a little more time and money to a church or new way of thinking. Depending on your zodiac sign, different areas of your life will be more influenced and affected by Jupiter’s visit to Pisces.
Along with the planet Neptune, Jupiter is the co-ruler of Pisces. The presence of a planet in the sign it rules means that its impact here on earth is stronger for individuals as well as global powerbrokers. Expect a strong Jupiter to inflate prices in the year ahead. The calamities it brings in economics will be balanced with big breakthroughs in medicine, particularly in treating mental illnesses and substance abuse problems. Will the drug cartel violence be tamed when drug addiction is cured? This is a classic example of the big blessings Jupiter brings when it is strong: a dramatic breakthrough that makes us all happier in unforeseen ways. For a taste of what is going to happen to you individually in the year ahead as Jupiter visits Pisces, read for your sign below.
Aries March 21 – April 19
A new belief system could steer you in the direction of giving up many of the things in your life that meant a lot to you up until a few years ago. You will go through a major abandoning of possessions, whether that means cleaning out the garage or purging the far reaches of your walk-in closet.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Your privacy may vanish as a new group of fans or friends suddenly know more than their fair share about your everyday comings and goings. If you can learn to accept the glare of the spotlight, there might be a way to profit off of it, as your career aspirations will benefit from the name value you bring prospective business partners.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Your obsession with success will soon evolve into a desire to have your way with a boss or co-worker in a position of power. This can be a ticket to getting fired or to owning part of the company. What you cannot easily have turns into a desire that controls you to the point of losing touch with why you even wanted him in the first place.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
Jupiter’s harmony with your sign will give you an attractive inside track to seducing the new kid on the block. If your goal has been to land a wealthy lover or have a fling with a capable and experienced man, expect to be attracting your dream figures soon. The year of lust will take you far off the beaten path. Keep a diary, as there are many fantastic memories ahead.
Leo July 23 – August 22
Your reliance on the words and deeds of another person will be magnified as you become ever more dependent on this person. Perhaps your needs are being taken care of by a lover and the easy life has left you bored. Jupiter in Pisces intensifies any co-dependent relationships in your world and takes them to the brink.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
You will have a great time when Jupiter visits Pisces as your chance at the partner of your dreams becomes quite apparent. You might not even notice him making the moves on you as you assume that he is out of your league. A little confidence will go a long way. Reel in the big catch and enjoy him once and for all.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Obsession about your job and work methods could consume you while Jupiter is in Pisces. There are a lot of organizational details being piled on that will damage your relationships if you have not put a good system into place as soon as you spot the backlog. A lover or friend will be there for you, but you better be there for them.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Romance blossoms while Jupiter is in Pisces. Passion envelops you two to the point of absolute enjoyment of this partner over all else. You may in fact lose touch with what is going on in your world. Loss of a job and friendships could soon follow as you are so consumed in passion that you fall off the face of your earth.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
One relationship in your life will be central while Jupiter visits Pisces. Your physical location will become a dominant theme and a new roommate or neighbor may suddenly go from appearing bland to taking up your imagination. You might shamelessly flirt all day as you see a cute side of him that you missed before.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
There is a time to hook up with an old flame and then there is a time to revisit the entire address book. You might find chance encounters with your past inspire some romantic investigations as well. Look to find out why you made some of your life choices and expect the recent expansion of your consciousness to deliver a new level of wisdom.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
While you are looking for love, perpetually, you will find a partner who shares your world-view. This is important and the older or more experienced you are, the better you can appreciate it. No matter how hot a guy is, a clash of values can make growing together impossible. You will learn about love as time goes on.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Jupiter in your sign gives you powerful insight into the minds of others. You will know for sure just who has the hots for you. The sad part of this is that you will be able to tell when a man has an ulterior motive or has found a new love interest as well. Sometimes it is better not to know, but if a soulmate comes along, you will be happy to have the powers you possess.
