While Jupiter spent two and a half months in Pisces in the middle part of 2021, this never got off the ground and was never meant to. Usually, when Jupiter returns to Pisces it is to spend 12 months getting a new 12 year Jupiter cycle off the ground. Instead, Jupiter returned in May 2021, paused at the door and then retrograded back out in July. During that time Jupiter not only observed, giving you a glimpse into the future before it arrived but spent time with dreamy Neptune. This allowed Jupiter to leave but Neptune to nurture the dream in his absence. This is part of the reason that while Jupiter returned to Pisces in the closing days of 2021 he will rush through in less than five months, leaving on 11th May.
Jupiter might be rushing through but thanks to the time he spent here last year, the opening of new doors and the planting of new seeds for the future doesn’t have to drag on. At the same time, knowing that Jupiter will return for a catch up from 28th October to 21st December means that if you overlook or forget anything, you can address it then. It is in between leaving Pisces on 11th May and returning on 28th October that Jupiter will not only return to your income sector but will bring Venus and Mars, the planets of money and passion with him. By then the Sun will have moved through but Venus’ return on 3rd May and Mars on 24th May will get these expansive five months off to a lucrative start.
Venus will leave on 29th May but Mars is here until 5th July and with the dwarf planet Eris here throughout that time, you will not only have the planet of luck and expansion working to make these some of the most lucrative months in over a decade but the warrior prince and princess of the cosmos. Mars will leave just before the first planet reaches your work sector on 20th July, with some active months on the job front through to 5th September giving income potential a vehicle. Life will also have its lighter side, with the South Node returning to an adventurous part of your chart on 19th January, where it will stay until July 2023. A total lunar eclipse here on 16th May and a solar eclipse on 25th October will give this a boost.
While to begin with it is business as usual or what you would expect from most financial years, there is one very big surprise that could have game changing implications. For you, business as usual means that while there will be periods of the year where things are more active on either the income or financial fronts, there is a slight bias towards the income side of the financial fence. That is because while not involved in day to day income matters, the dwarf planet Eris has been in your income sector since 1926 and as the warrior princess of the cosmos, it is her fighting spirit that you can tap into when needed. What sets this year apart is that while both sides of the financial fence will become more active when there are planets passing through, there will be a lot more activity on the income side of the financial fence this year and it will happen much sooner.
There will be no planetary activity in your financial sector, where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have until Mercury returns on 26th August for what should be a 14 to 15 day visit. However, Mercury will retrograde back out on 24th September, only to return again from 11th October to 30th October. In that time the Sun will move through from 23rd September to 23rd October and Venus from 29th September to 23rd October. In all, the planetary focus on money matters will run from 26th August to 30th October, a period of just over two months. It is a very different story on the other side of the financial fence.
It begins in typical fashion, with the Sun turning the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options as he moves through your income sector from 21st March to 20th April while you will have access to Mercury’s smart head for money as he moves through from 27th March to 11th April. However, it is in May that everything changes, starting with Venus’ return on 3rd May. Held back by a retrograde phase Venus will be ready to make up for lost time but it is just eight days later that Jupiter will return for the first time in over a decade, followed by Mars on 24th May. All of a sudden you have the planets of money, luck and passion in your income sector, ready to make things happen. While Venus is here until 29th May and Mars until 5th July Jupiter is here until 28th October and even then will retrograde back on 21st December, where he will remain until March 2023.
Across the romantic and relationship fronts there is no major or unexpected planetary activity. Even Mars, who returns to your romantic and relationship sectors once every 22 months will visit neither this year. This will create windows of planetary activity on both fronts that will overlap and because they will give the love and relationship gods limited time to work in, they will be working to make it count. The dwarf planet Ceres will visit both your romantic and relationship sectors this year and as her focus is more on understanding your needs and priorities, she will be taking advantage of this relatively quiet year on both fronts. While there will be no planetary activity on the romantic front until May and none on the relationship front until August, a pair of Full Moons will give both a voice in the early months of the year.
The first is a Full Moon in your romantic sector on 18th January and the second a Full Moon in your relationship sector on 18th March. Both fall before Venus, the planet of love will return to Pisces from 6th April to 3rd May, giving matters of the heart and your relationships an important boost. Held back by a retrograde phase Venus won’t return to Pisces until after your birthday month is over, so will be playing catch up when it comes to updating your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for your new solar year. It is just after Venus leaves that Ceres will return for her first visit to your romantic sector in four years, spending from 15th May to 24th July helping you to update your heart’s needs and priorities.
Fortunately, with the Sun in your romantic sector from 21st June to 23rd July, Mercury from 5th July to 20th July and Venus, the planet of love from 18th July to 12th August this will be in the heart of the most romantically charged months of the year. It is while Venus is still in your romantic sector that Mercury will make an early return to your relationship sector from 4th August to 26th August. So early that a retrograde turn will bring the planet of love back for a second visit from 24th September to 11th October. As he does at this time every year, the Sun will turn the solar spotlight onto your relationships from 23rd August to 23rd September while Venus will return to work her magic from 5th September to 29th September. Ceres will return to update your relationship needs and priorities from 29th September to 19th December.
While starting the year with Mars in your career sector is a huge advantage this is a leftover from your 2021 year, which the warrior planet of the cosmos will be working to capitalize on. Once Mars leaves on 25th January he won’t return to your work sector until later next year, with this is his only chance to have an impact on this professional year and he will be working to make it count. Mars returned to your career sector in December, just after a total solar eclipse and while the Sun was still here. This gave Mars a lot of momentum and a mandate while allowing you to begin the year with your warrior and competitive spirit fueled from the start.
Once Mars leaves on 25th January, apart from a Full Moon in your work sector on 17th February and another in your career sector on 14th June there will be no planetary activity on either front until the second half of the year. However, there will always be a lot less pressure, with the North Node’s departure from your home and the South Node’s from your career sector on 19th January ending their 20 month mission to police your work/life balance. Things will start to move on the job front when Mercury returns to your work sector on 20th July, just three days ahead of the Sun on 23rd July. Held back by her retrograde phase Venus won’t return until 12th August but with Mercury leaving on 4th August and the Sun on 23rd August, once she leaves on 5th September this will end all planetary activity on the job front.
In all, your work sector is only active from 20th July to 5th September but they will be the most active and opportune weeks of the year on the job front. It is over two months later that Venus, the last planet to leave your work sector this year will be the first to return to your career sector on 16th November. This ushers in another short sharp but active period, this time on the career front, which will run from Venus’ return on 16th November to the Sun’s departure on 22nd December. While only a short five week period, this will not only come in time to bring this professional year home but in a way that will bring things full circle from the start Mars gave to the year.
