Jupiter, from 2019 onwards, was either with Saturn or in Saturn’s signs, thus unable to behave in his usual benevolent and expansive manner. We were not able to make full use of the Jupiter in Sagittarius energies because of his close proximity to Saturn. Then Jupiter in Capricorn was anyways debilitated. And his sojourn in Aquarius majorly impacted by Saturn sitting very strongly in Capricorn throughout. Now Jupiter will enter his own Pisces on 13th Apr 2022 and stay here till 22nd Apr 2023. (Saturn too will occupy his own Capricorn/ Aquarius during this period.)
Jupiter is the natural Jiv-karak, ie he sustains life on this earth and his being constrained by the karmic enforcer for all these years has caused several problems for us. Significantly, he has been unable to support the economy, public health and sustain the right frame of mind, ie the core life philosophy at the global levels in this time.
Pisces is the natural 12th house of the zodiac, so the keywords of the sign and the house both can be applied to learn more about this environment. The house of mediative states, dreams, bridges to the astral, losses, isolation, impracticality, illusions, depth, etc. And also the sign of spiritual evolution, intuition, longing for the unknown, etc. One of the most sensitive signs, Pisces is composed of the three Nakshatra, Poorvabhadrapada (Jupiter), Uttarabhadrapada (Saturn) and Revati (Mercury). It also has the Gandant energies.
Interestingly, Jupiter will be literally sprinting through Poorvabhadrapada (planetary movements) and entering Uttarabhadrapada on 28th Apr where he will remain for an ultra long 10 months at n uninterrupted stretch till 24th Feb 2023. Then he will again rush through Revati to enter Ashvini on 22nd Apr 2023. This means that this Pisces transit will be more influenced by Jupiter in Uttarabhadrapada and this is again a lunar mansion linked to Saturn. Again Saturn will continue his subtle effect on Jupiter during this transit. (Saturn has the world affairs firmly in his grip for some time now and shows no signs of relaxing)
Jupiter will be going retrograde from 29th Jul till 24th Nov but he will not change his sign, ie not go back into the previous sign and then return as he was doing in the past few years. This is Jupiter’s new trend and this will continue for the next 3 yrs. So these next few years when Jupiter will be transiting in Pisces, Aries and Taurus will grant stability in all those matters connected to Jupiter and these signs in your birth and transit chart. Try to make the most of this energy in the coming years.
Other planets will be influencing this Jupiter in Pisces transit, modifying his ability to give results.
Jupiter in Pisces technically would have been a very good transit as he owns this rashi, but the time frame where he is fully free to do as he pleases is limited. He is aspected by Saturn, his 3rd aspect from Capricorn for about 6months. I consider the additional aspects of planets to be more effective than the regular 7th aspect (for Mars, Jupiter, Saturn). Jupiter is idealistic, kind, hopeful, benevolent, helpful, expansive etc by nature, while Saturn is realistic, time bound, strict, restrictive, dour etc, somewhat antithetical to Jupiter in temperament so his aspecting Jupiter with his 3rd aspect will tend to give more inauspicious and extreme results. So we can expect somewhat good results from Jupiter from 29th Mar – 12th Jul 2022 and from 17th Jan – 22nd Apr 2023. For the rest of his stay here in Pisces, Saturn will significantly aspect him from Capricorn, hampering his style.
Mars will be in Pisces with Jupiter from 17th May to 27th Jun also affecting Jupiter’s ability to give results. However their combined energies can be used to create and seize opportunities if your birth/ transit chart is supportive. Mars is initiative, confidence, pioneering spirit, desire to compete and win etc so can be usefully paired with Jupiter’s positive qualities to gain some positivity and especially for accomplishing of some daring sort of work related to philosophy, way of life, etc.
There will broadly be two trends in this Jupiter in Pisces transit.
- One where Jupiter is free to work without Saturn aspecting him. During this time, spiritual activity will increase, in depth study and genuine understanding will increase, there will be an expansion of positive qualities like universal love and hope, help during dream states, extrasensory abilities will be boosted, desire for peace will prevail, etc. imagination, intuition etc will be useful and you might be able to make a few ‘lucky guesses’ during this phase. On the mundane side, rains will be plentiful, flooding is also possible, prices of gold will increase, yellow colored grain etc will be plentiful, etc. Global economy will be boosted briefly.
- And when he is constrained by Saturn’s restrictive influence. During this time, expect physical deaths, reduced mental clarity, lack of self confidence, impracticality, a desire to escape from responsibilities and procrastinate, overwork and loneliness, lack of sleep, monetary losses and bad investments, ill health caused by allergies and similar ‘sensitivity’ related issues. During this time, the weather will be windy, cyclones, fog and other atmosphere related phenomena will cause damage but actual rain will be less. Economy overall will slow down.
Generally Bharat has an average to good period coming up, we will endure whatever happens. But there will be several trials as enemies try to gang up against us. The national capital and JK UT will face riot like situations and terror attacks for reasons known to all of us. Other major cities will also be targeted but the damage there will be lesser. Our economy will continue to grow, slowly but unstoppably. On the global levels however the economy will suffer. Europe and USA have started on a route of inevitable economic collapse, this may trigger other wars. And the one going on in Ukraine Russia is not going to stop so soon. Overall this Jupiter in Pisces transit will be useful for investing in banks, energy, gold, silver and other precious metals. Always use your common sense and not get carried away by ‘sentiment’ when investing. Long term investments which span this transit will give the best returns. Investing in water related businesses, liquids etc will also be profitable. On the personal levels, avoid over-eating, laziness, sleeping late, over-indulgence in sensuality, drugs/alcohol etc. Try to set up a healthy schedule of waking up before sunrise, exercise, diet etc and stick to it. If you are obese, diabetic, addicted to any substance or over-indulge in fatty / sugary foods etc then health problems are possible in this transit. Avoid loaning money to others. Even if you feel expansive etc do not share your personal details/ feelings etc excessively with others especially on social media. (I have written separate posts on the yearly 2022-23 predictions, here)
Jupiter will be in Uttarabhadrapada nakshatra for a continuous period of about 10 months. Uttarabhadrapada is ruled by the nakshatra devata Ahirbudhnya, ‘the serpentine consciousness which arises from unfathomable depths’. It is linked to Saturn and is represented by 2 stars which are considered to be the rear two legs of a funeral bed. Uttarabhadrapada is a Devbhasha Samskrutam word which means ‘the auspicious stage which comes later’.
People will be required to become more flexible and adapt themselves to fast changing scenarios but this will be difficult. Sleep and rest may be reduced as work and stress increase. Lethargy and laziness will increase. Everyone will keep their true motives and actions secret but being calculative is good only to some extent. Some will try to postpone taking hard decisions and this will lead to trouble. There will be physical exits of several during this time, but these will be a part of karma balanced. Mediation and guidance during dream states will be available for some of us. Some will gain money, spirituality, a new life philosophy etc and achieve their life goals. Research, occult, construction etc type of activities will be fruitful. Earthquakes and volcanic activity is expected. Destruction will occur but as a part of a larger purpose. The month of Bhadrapad will be significant in some way during this transit. The larger lesson here is synthesising the power of Saturn and Jupiter together in a sensible way for self-evolution. These are the two farthest planets, the two largest ones, the two in-charge of the last four signs of the zodiac, the two linked to the lowest most Swadhishthan Mooladhar chakras, etc. If they can be harnessed, they can lead to true wisdom.
The Jupiter in Pisces transit results for the individual signs. These are generic readings which will have to be modified as per your birth chart details. These are based on your birth Moon sign, as the Moon determines the timing and fructification of karma. But if your Ascendant sign is strong, then you can blend the results to gain a better picture of what is expected.
- eg. if your ascendant sign is Libra, it will be a physically tiring time. But if your birth Moon is Scorpio, there will be several events which will give you emotional support and might make up for it. And if Scorpio is stronger than Libra in your birth chart (easiest way is to compare the scores of the Ashtakvarga table for these signs) then it may overall be a good time.
- (I am factoring in the Saturn transit in Capricorn /Aquarius as it is a very significant change and will have an overriding effect on Jupiter’s activities. Also Uttarabhadrapada nakshatra is linked to Saturn.)
Aries – This is an unfavourable transit, be careful. Jupiter may grant wealth etc if he is well placed in the birth chart but coupled with an undefined sadness and a tendency to commit immoral or unethical acts. There is a possibility of humiliation, loss of job or residence, breakdown in relationships etc. Enemies will be active and you will not be able to effectively tackle things. Health may be affected and a longterm illness may start during this transit. Avoid getting into short term affairs as they will cause loss of reputation. Keep some resources available in case of emergencies. Saturn in Capricorn will be bad. Saturn in Aquarius phase will be better, so make use of this time to consolidate.
Taurus – Jupiter is quite favourable as he will grant gains from several sources, wealth and money will increase. Your physical and emotional health will recover and you will feel good from the inside. Friends, family etc will support you, personal life will be on a high. Professional success will be with you, promotions are possible. This is a good time so use it well. Whatever you had planned for yourself will fructify during this transit. So use your mind, your skills, your networks etc to search for opportunities, they are all right within your grasp. Use the power of the 11th Jupiter to propel yourself onwards.
Gemini – Generally Jupiter transiting in the 10th house gives overwork. But still this can be a productive transit if you can positively make use of the opportunities which come your way. You will have to work in a realistic and practical manner in your office. Stress and later illness caused by additional responsibilities is a possibility. A side effect of this is that you will neglect the spouse, children and the home which will cause long term problems. Health of the father may be an issue during this transit.
Cancer – Jupiter will help you in several unexpected ways as your luck, the blessings of your deity/ancestors and your Poorva-punya is on your side. Family, peers, patrons, seniors etc will be supportive and you will be happy. Relationships will be good. Professionals will see a growth in the career. Students will succeed in their exams etc. Money flow will be adequate, however it is always best to budget and invest sensibly. Profession will see successes. Whatever you have wished for, the energy of this time will make it happen for you. So be careful about what you wish for. Overall transit is good, make good use of this time.
Leo – This is not a good transit as he can create long term aliments, grief and hardships. Expect stresses in your professional and personal life as your interpersonal relationships with your boss, parents, spouse, children, relatives, neighbours etc get strained. Do not trust others more than necessary as you may face humiliation or losses in the future. Do not ignore issues as they erupt, else they will soon become unmanageable. Especially if you are obese or diabetic or suffering from ‘expanding’ type of illness you should be careful. Jupiter in the 8th house can also function as a Marak, depending on the individual charts. Saturn in Capricorn phase will be better for you.
Virgo – Times have finally changed for you, Jupiter is favourable and he will grant pleasure. Focus on the Jupiter related things as per your birth chart, these will grant you growth. Generally Jupiter in the 7th from the birth Moon sign is very auspicious in all ways, so expect marriages, birth of children, increase in wealth, better health, positivity and emotional support, increase in overall profits, professional success, improvement in relationships etc. Here you have the choice of doing things your way and succeeding. So use your intellect, imagination, ingenuity, skill, abilities etc effectively to materialise what you really dream of. This transit can give you want you really want to complete yourself. Saturn in Aquarius phase will be significantly better for you, so use it well.
Libra – There will be stress both at home and in the office. Especially expect intense quarrels with the wife, the boss and business partners, legal issues are likely. Ill health is possible especially diseases of the nerves, abdomen and ‘overheating’ type of diseases. Enemies will be active against you. Avoid taking debts during this time, also avoid speculation and hasty investments. Trusting the wrong person during this time will cause unending problems for you. If you expect anything to go right for you, most likely it will go wrong during this time. However internal spirituality will increase, you will use philosophy to make sense of what is happening to you during this time. Saturn in Aquarius phase will be better for you.
Scorpio – as I have reiterated in several pervious posts, Scorpio has a very good time now as all the major planets are favourable. Marriage, improvement in relationships, birth of a child, better health, increase in wealth, successes in education, promotions in profession, good investments, increase in creativity and confidence, timely luck, etc are all possible with Jupiter transiting the 5th from Scorpio. Your enemies will not be able to work against you. If your birth/transit chart is strong then this is one of your best years. Saturn in Capricorn phase will be better but Saturn in Aquarius is still balanced nicely by Jupiter in Pisces. This entire transit is good for you so make the most of it.
Sagittarius – Jupiter in the 4th does have some positivity which you can capitalise on. Your health will improve, some sources of money may become active. You may be required to shift your residence to some place better suited for your profession but away from your loved ones. Do not trust your friends more than necessary. Do not speculate or gamble. There may be separation for your mother, her health may require your attention. Auspicious functions are possible and family members will support your decisions. Students and professionals will do well. Avoid rash driving. Self discipline is always the best option. Saturn in Aquarius phase will be good for you, make the most of it. Saturn in Capricorn will be a return of the Sade sati energy which will drain you, so be extra careful during this time.
Capricorn – The major planets are not favourable so trying times will continue. Health might be affected so do not ignore any symptoms. Issues at the work will erupt which may affect your finances. There will be uncertainty and issues with your extended family, siblings and teammates, try to remain practical with them. Avoid risky investments. Relationships will see arguments and separations from loved ones. This is a trying transit as in addition to the 3rd Jupiter, the middle and last phases of sade sati will tire you out.
Aquarius – this is a good transit. There will be several opportunities for wealth generation, physical health recovery, emotional recovery and good times with the family. Jupiter is fully supportive and will help you get out of the stress that you were under in the recent past. Education, profession, relationships, marriage, child-birth etc, all aspects of life will show some positivity. Try to create a healthy routine and stick to it. Do not get involved in other people’s affairs or do not lend money etc to others, chances of getting cheated is high. You have to make use of this time, especially when Saturn is in Capricorn to consolidate before your second phase of Sade sati starts with Saturn entering Aquarius.
Pisces – There will be some stress on the physical level, loneliness and weakness is possible. Enemies and rivals will try to make things difficult for you. Try to maintain your relationships on cordial levels. The boss may overload you with work. Create a routine and stick to it. Health can be affected so do not ignore any symptoms. Keep your loved ones close, open up to them. Avoid bad habits, gambling, addictions etc. Be careful about your money as budgeting may be necessary. Not a very good time for new ventures, unless there is support from the birth chart. Reduction in comforts as you will be required to work more. Travelling can be non productive. But if you can manage to do all this with the proper mindset, this transit can give you significant growth. Saturn in Capricorn phase and the time when both Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde together will be good for you, so try to consolidate your gains during this time. Otherwise your time will be average as it is a combination of Sade sati first phase with Janma Jupiter.
If you are an advanced student of Jyotish then you should use the Nakshatra transit and the chakra in fine tuning your predictions..
- The simplest is the Janma Navtara chakra. This time Jupiter is going to stay in Uttarabhadrapada for almost 10months, so the nakshatra based chakras will give more precise information.
- The ashtapadmadala chakra gives a more subtle analysis of a personality and can be an enlightening read for the advanced student.
- (If you really want to master the art of prediction then the Sarvatobhadra chakra is the only one you need to learn in depth.)
Use the Ashtakvarga system for a rapid analysis of the transits. Note the points that Jupiter has in Pisces sign in your Ashtakvarga table. If this is 4 or more then this transit will be more significant for you. Also check the power of Pisces sign, ie if its total point score is 27 or more then it has more potential to influence your life.
If you have a strong birth chart, ie strong birth Moon, ascendant sign/lord, vargottam planets, strong yogkarak, etc then you will be better able to navigate through the inevitable changes in life. Whatever happens, you will somehow retain your position of strength.
If Jupiter is your ascendant lord, ie Sagittarius ascendant or Pisces ascendant or a functional benefic or a functional malefic for your chart or is conjunct significant planets in your birth chart then his transit will be more significant for you.
If Jupiter is transiting over a major birth planet, eg if your ascendant lord is in Pisces in your birth chart then this Jupiter’s Pisces transit will be very significant for you.
Or even if Jupiter strongly aspects a birth chart planet even then he will influence that planet positively. ie at present if you have any planets in Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio then these birth chart planets will benefit from Jupiter’s positivity.
Also if the ongoing Dasha period is of strong and auspicious planets ie ascendant lord, Yogkarak, ruler of the Kendra/Kona etc even then you will be supported and manage to remain positive under testing circumstances. If you are in the Mahadasha of Jupiter or even the Antardasha of Jupiter in another planet’s Mahadasha then this transit will have a stronger effect on you.
The transits are used to fine tune the results promised in the birth chart. ie the the results promised by Pisces sign as per your birth chart have a very good chance of fructifying in this Jupiter transit in Pisces. Or if you have a significant planet in Pisces in your birth chart, then the results that he promises will also be boosted in this time.
Generally Jupiter is favourable in transit in the 2nd 5th 7th 9th 11th houses. So another way of looking at this is whatever is signified by Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio and Aquarius in your birth chart has the capacity to create opportunities.
There are several ways of analysing charts, they are all used to cross check the results you are predicting. The same positive/negative results repeating in at least 3 different analysis patterns indicates that the effect will be strong.
These two months, March and April 2022 will see the transits of Rahu, Ketu, Jupiter and Saturn. The four slow moving graha changing their signs back to back in a very short time span is not a good thing. All the aspects of life which they control in your chart will see significant changes. If the birth chart, ascendant sign/lord and birth Moon are powerful then you will be able to adjust to this rapid change, else there will be stress.
Remedies are as always Daan and Mantra. Refer to the index page or the search bar for posts on these if you wish to read. As a general option it is advisable to perform some Daan or Mantra or at least go to a nav graha temple for worshiping Jupiter, Devguru Bruhaspati, on the day of the transit. The third option for remedies is behavioural changes which are based on an understanding of the chart and its energy dynamics. This is possible only if you have a strong birth chart to begin with and are doing some regular spiritual practice. And you can always do the ‘fun’ remedies of wearing perfumes, colors or eating the foods linked to the particular planet to increase its effect on you.
