To express my gratitude for the countless gifts we are bestowed with, I wanted to take some roses, carry them a long distance into the heart of a forest and leave the flowers with the water as a gift to the life giving forces of nature. While I was there, touching and sitting on the rocks, I thought of the people before me who had come there and perhaps taken a bath, washed their clothes or collected water for their homes. And while leaving I thought of the people who would come here next, wishing they would wonder where the flowers came from. Maybe their hearts will grow softer and they wouldn’t toss their plastic bottles and wrappers into the same water. Whenever I shoot flowers, fruits or vegetables in a landscape or in the city, I always leave them behind. I find this gesture fulfilling and spiritually satisfying, just feels natural. As the water flows, the petals will flow along and as the earth sits still, the pomegranate or an orange will thicken and sweeten, feeding many in need, I am sure.By Imdad Barbhuyan (instagram post of December 27th 2021)
The photo and quote above just speak Jupiter in Pisces to me. Perfectly!
Jupiter is the planet of wisdom, religion, philosophy, spirituality, blessings, luck, good fortune, hope and dreams.
What is luck? What is being lucky? Is it being rich? Having money in the bank account? Or is it being wise? Being a good person? Feeling love in your heart? Having compassion…
One of the most important things I learned during my stay in Mysore, India, in December 2019, is to make offerings. No matter how poor, I saw every Indian make an offering in temples. One doesn’t dare to ask the gods and goddesses for blessings without making an offering. Western tourists would hold their hands out for blessings, but they were often unwilling to offer even one rupee.
That’s not how Jupiter works… Jupiter in Pisces teaches us that real fortune, richness and love is found in making offerings and in having compassion.
Jupiter in Pisces wants us to offer flower petals to the rivers.
Jupiter was in Sagittarius at the time that I arrived in India. Jupiter moved into Capricorn while I was in Mysore, practicing yoga, studying Sanskrit and visiting temples. Jupiter rules over two signs: Sagittarius and Pisces. In both these signs, Jupiter is able to support growth and good fortune. Jupiter was in Saturn ruled signs from early December 2019 up until now, in Capricorn and in Aquarius, feeling quite restricted and bound down by the lord of sorrow, soberness, detachment, sacrifice and boundaries. We all felt that…
Jupiter enters Pisces on December 28th (US) / 29th (Europe) 2021. Pisces is a sign of compassion, intuitive wisdom, merging / bonding and dissolving boundaries. I think we’re all longing for more hugs and less lockdowns. Boundaries don’t dissolve over night though. Pisces offers a welcome bath, but the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) will still experience stress in the upcoming year. We all have all signs somewhere in our personal natal charts. We all will experience blessings in one area and stress and upheaval in another. But… at least the blessings will come. Jupiter is getting free from Saturn’s rulership and restrictions; and that will FEEL GOOD! At least one area of life will feel good and will become better in the upcoming year. Which area that is for you? Find out in your horoscope below.
Jupiter won’t be in Pisces all of 2022. Jupiter will be in Aries too for a while. In Aries, Jupiter will bring blessings in response to courageous acts. Though speeding on a motor cycle may also result in crashes. Jupiter in Aries may help your across the finish line, but it may also help you to hit that tree. But more on that later, in May when Jupiter will actually enter Aries.
Jupiter was in Pisces for a bit in Summer 2021, from mid May until late July. Whatever goodness you experienced in those months, may offer a preview for the next months.
Here are some key dates:
– December 28th (US) / December 29th (Europe): Jupiter enters Pisces.
– May 10th (US) / 11th (Europe) 2022: Jupiter enters Aries.
– July 28th 2022: Jupiter stations retrograde at 8 degrees Aries.
– October 28th 2022 : Jupiter retrograde enters Pisces.
– November 23rd 2022: Jupiter stations direct at 28 degrees Pisces.
– December 20th 2022: Jupiter enters Aries.
Jupiter in Pisces is conjunct Neptune. Neptune has been hanging out in Pisces for a few years now. Neptune and Pisces have an affinity; both archetypes share keywords like dreams, otherworldly experiences, spirituality, confusion, merging, dissolving boundaries, indulgence, a like of substances like alcohol or drugs, etc. This astrology is great for LSD trips, romance and intimacy and talking with God. Proceed at your own risk… The conjunction is active as long as Jupiter is in Pisces, but becomes exact to the degree on April 12th.
In my experience: Jupiter doesn’t always bring his blessings with the fanfare and bells and whistles that people hope for. For example: Jupiter in Pisces in the second house of money and possessions, will not be about wining the lottery for most Aquarius risings; it may actually be about learning how to manage your cash flow. Be humble. Welcome the lessons that life brings you. Be willing to make offerings. The gods and goddesses respond to offerings, not to you holding your hand out.
Ok, enough preaching from my side…
I wish you a happy and blessed Jupiter in Pisces 2022!

Mini horoscopes for Jupiter in Pisces
(December 28th – May 10th 2022 & October 28th – December 20th 2022)
Aries rising: Sometimes the most important work is done behind the scenes. Writers sometimes retreat to a cottage in the woods or to a tropical island to work on their book in silence and peace. Your blessings are found when you’re willing to retreat. Yoga, meditation and or therapy may offer you healing in 2022.
Taurus rising: Make your creative offerings to the communities and groups that you serve and love. Your networks, your friends and/or your audiences will bring you blessings and good fortune in return. Serve your people and they will raise you up. Also: dream big, don’t go home; have hope; make wishes.
Gemini rising: Showing up at the office early may help you to land that promotion. Keep your eyes open for career opportunities; if you want to work on your career, now is the time. Keep your inner eye open for insights on your career path and wishes, listen to your intuition. Career insights and light bulb moments are as valuable as promotions are.
Cancer rising: You may find your luck abroad in 2022, or in other foreign places. Books, science, religious practices, travels and other ‘stuff’ that helps your travel the world or broaden the mind may start calling you soon. Don’t hesitate to book that plain ticket or to sign up for that astrology course. Be willing to go far and your luck will come near.
Leo rising: Be willing to share your most valuable possessions, whether that’s your money, your dearest secrets or whatever else you hold close to your heart. Your projects become better through collaboration. You might raise your net worth through investing money. You may find love if you’re willing to share your heart. You will find compassion and understanding by sharing something of yourself. It’s through sharing, intimacy or collaborating that you’ll find your fortune.
Virgo rising: The upcoming year is not one to spend alone. You’ll find your blessings through the people that are close to you. Your lovers, your students, your clients, your dearest friends. Invest in commitments and you’ll receive blessings and love in return. Show up for them, they will show up for you.
Libra rising: Make an effort to invest in your health and daily routines. It will pay out, definitely. Sign up for that yoga class. Cut back on the wine. You’ll feel stronger. You’ll have more energy to show up at work and to respond to job opportunities. Maybe you’ll even land that promotion.
Scorpio rising: Invest in your creative pleasures. Sign up for that pottery class. Or buy pencils and paper so you can paint with your kids. With the greater benefic planet in your fifth house of creativity, romance, sex, fertility and children, you’re ready to receive blessings in at least one of these areas of life. Prince charming won’t come knocking on your door though, so better download Tinder if you’re craving that hook up.
Sagittarius rising: Renovate your foundations. Invest in your home. Tend to your roots. Trees are able to grow higher when their roots are stronger. Your career will benefit from you having a home where you can rest. Do the inner and private work, it will bring you blessings in other areas of life too.
Capricorn rising: Pay attention to your surroundings. Be thankful for what you have around you. Practice mindfulness in your daily routines. Blessings come if you can ‘be here now’, don’t worry about future times. Be open to make welcome changes in your communications and social life. Fun short term or short distance travels may come knocking on your door, or possibly you’ll get a pen pal.
Aquarius rising: Who doesn’t like money? The greater benefic planet may bring you some. Don’t hold your hand out too eagerly though. Jupiter is as much fond of money as he’s of wisdom. Lessons about finances come in multiple ways. In Pisces this planet may teach you that real worth has to do more with ‘who you are as a person’, than it has to do with numbers on the bank account. Jupiter bestows luck when offerings are made to him. Only ask for money if you’re willing to offer some too. Practice gratitude for what you have.
Pisces rising: Dare to show yourself. Dare to speak up. Put yourself out there. The upcoming year is a year to take changes and to welcome positive changes. Invest in your self development and be ready to grow and flourish. You’ll definitely experience growth and expansion in 2022.
