Jupiter moves into Pisces on April 13th, 2022 and will stay in this sign for a year until April 21st, 2023. Jupiter’s transit in Pisces will emphasize compassion and humanitarian welfare.
With the arrival of March, all the planets are in Capricorn or Aquarius, both signs ruled by Saturn. The planets are also in Kala Sarpa Yoga, which means that they all are on one side of the lunar node axis, further emphasizing opposition, conflict and imbalance.
Expect to see change and transformation this year as major planets will move into new signs. We will also have important planetary conjunctions, and experience two solar and two lunar eclipses.
In an astrological chart the Sun represents identity, vitality, power, authority, ego and the true Self. The Sun as atmakaraka prompts us to develop Self-awareness and, ultimately, to become Self-Realized.
Atmakaraka translates as indicator of the soul. The atmakaraka reveals the unfulfilled desires that we carry with us and which have brought us into this incarnation. These deep desires need to be addressed and reveal our dharma, or soul purpose, in this life.
You too are part of all that is. Cosmic reality is expressed on earth, and also within you. With the help of planets and stars, the universe sets up circumstances that will allow the soul to work out its karma.
October is a complex month astrologically, with several major shifts. Mars is in close combustion with the Sun the entire month, and there is a deep sense of change as Saturn and Jupiter both shift from retrograde to direct.
