Let’s talk about what Jupiter in Aries means for you. Jupiter is called the greatest benefic planet. Where he is in your chart shows a place where you have luck and even a sense of ease around those topics. He represents optimism, generosity, growth, joy, and abundance.
He is in his happiest when he is in his home signs of Sagittarius and Pisces. Because he is a day team planet, he especially likes Sagittarius, a diurnal sign. He also does well in Cancer where he has exaltation. There he can spread his wings without any boundaries.
He enjoys being in the 11th house in particular, as that house governs groups and associations as well as hopes and dreams. Jupiter’s theme is “the more the merrier” and establishing faith. Higher learning, expanded thoughts, and gaining wisdom are all governed by him. He also governs wealth. He can inspire and he can provide.
Jupiter struggles in Virgo and Gemini a bit as they overwhelm him with details; he is a big picture guy. But he has a really difficult time in Capricorn where he has his fall. Capricorn likes structure and limits. It’s hard to dream when you keep getting told what the rules are for dreaming. Capricorn, an earth sign, wants to know how things are getting done, whereas Jupiter is just there to provide inspiration and possibilities.
Jupiter in Aries: 2022 – 2023
In Aries, Jupiter’s best qualities manifest when you dare to be great. This is about seizing the day and making things happen. It is time to innovate this area of your life and be the pioneer. Aries is a cardinal fire sign who is all about identity.
Jupiter in Aries dares to take the first step and, when meeting a challenge, will say, “Why not? Let’s give it a shot.” It’s time to be self-reliant and stop waiting for others to make the first move. This kind of energy will infuse May 10 – October 28 and again from December 20, 2022 – May 16, 2023.
It’s helpful to look back through the years when Jupiter was in Aries to see what themes popped up then. Think back to June 6, 2010 – September 6, 2010 and again January 22, 2011 – June 4, 2011.
Aries through the Houses:
Aries Risings: This is a great time to see how issues of yourself, body, and image come into play. Optimism and generosity come into play. Jupiter in this house is ready for you to switch up your image, whether that is getting new clothes, finding a personal coach, or do something that accentuates your self-confidence. This is an auspicious transit for you. Say yes to opportunities.
Taurus Risings: Jupiter’s pure purpose is to support you through your house of retreat and self-undoing. In this house you really can get a genuine sense of where you have been excessive and where you have been excellent. Jupiter is there to bring the magnifying glass into these patterns, but also brings the support you need. It can be a time for increased emphasis on self-care and getting down to the basics of “what do I want?”
Gemini Risings: This is the house where Jupiter finds his joy. Here he can network to his heart’s content, connect people, and turn regular contacts into friends. This is also where Jupiter can show his experience and wisdom, so it’s not surprising if you are asked to be a mentor during this transit. Volunteer work also becomes a priority.
Cancer Risings: Jupiter does good things in the 10th house. Here, he can bring about new mentors or ask you to step up with new opportunities. This house typically features where we function in public. For most of us, this is our career, but it also has to deal with reputation. You might find that your popularity upticks with this transit. Awards and honors arrive with this transit. You impress others by what you accomplish. Your star is on the rise.
Leo Risings: The 9th house deals with long distance travel and higher education. If you are looking to attend college or are booking an international trip, this is your green light to do it! Jupiter likes this house as well, where he can expand the mind, broaden the horizons, and support understanding.
Virgo Risings: Issues of shared resources, debts, and inheritance will come to the surface. For some, there could be new inheritances, but others might feel the need to look into financial advisors. Jupiter is your man! If you need to apply to the bank for a loan, use the time with Jupiter in Aries. It might surprise you how much they want to work with you. If you need assistance with the IRS, it will pleasantly surprise you. The big bad wolf becomes the helpful uncle.
Libra Risings: Jupiter is ready to highlight your partner, marriage, and any legal partnerships you have. The planet of generosity is touring and supporting all issues around marriage and partnerships. This can be a renewal of your connection, where you both just get one another and it highlights themes of appreciation. If you need to establish a formal business relationship with someone, now is the time to move that forward.
Scorpio Risings: The 6th house covers topics surrounding health, our daily routines, our pets, and our employees. With such a protective planet in this house, you may see an uptick in events that concern these, but being a benefic, you will get the help you need. My friend, astrologer Sam Reynolds, says the thing with Jupiter is he can show us where we have excellence and where we have excess. This is really important when it is going through this house of health and daily practice. If you get news about your health where there needs to be room for improvement due to excesses, be quick with the action. With Mars ruling Aries, I wouldn’t be surprised if a few of you with this placement could get a new furbaby and others could find that work relationships seem to get easier.
Sagittarius Risings: Jupiter brings a sense of buoyancy to the topics of children, pregnancy, hobbies, sex, and creativity. In this house, he asks you to dream big, have fun, and will mysteriously connect you with mentors or help you didn’t even know you needed in these areas. With this transit, get a vision board and start getting even the most far-fetched idea down on paper. Aries is fast, so know that no idea is a bad idea; just get everything down! Pregnancy can be babies, but it can also mean projects. Jupiter is here to support your creativity.
Capricorn Rising: The 4th house is about family, roots, ancestry, and your home. When Jupiter comes through this house, he can bring issues of family support to a head. Jupiter governs the wisdom and typically, we see this from our ancestors. It is a time to connect with those elders who possess the wisdom, or perhaps step into the role of taking care of elders. Real estate also governs this house, which would be more of a longer move, like to a different city. You may find that real estate opportunities present themselves. At the least, connect with your stories and create your own traditions you want in your chosen home. I’ve also had clients discover they had long lost cousins or siblings from DNA matches with this transit.
Aquarius Risings: Jupiter is here to help you connect and communicate. Here he can assist issues you have with your neighbors, siblings, or even getting new technology like a laptop or phone. You might find increased activity around these topics while Jupiter tours this house. I’ve had people even move neighborhoods (like a few blocks) when Jupiter was in their 3rd house. Say yes to spontaneous road trips and explore your region.
Pisces Risings: Jupiter is ready to bring some ease in your finances. This could mean more earning potential, but it could also mean greater expenses. Keep track of that balance sheet. Jupiter could also manifest in you taking course work that will develop your skills to earn money. Mentors could step into the game for you. It’s also a time to explore skills that will improve your earning potential.
