Jupiter is the planet of expansion, having the role of expanding everything that it comes into contact with.
As such, Jupiter is often called the “lucky planet” because it leads people to happiness through the positive expansion of things, money, emotions, concepts, and relationships. So, the form of our good fortune and expansion changes according to the sign of the zodiac where Jupiter stays, as does the atmosphere that envelops the world, the economy, and the feelings of people.
Jupiter’s stay in Aries will last approximately one year, from May 10, 2022 to May 16, 2023. Normally, Jupiter would spend a whole year in one sign, but this time Jupiter’s movements are a bit more complicated. Jupiter will be in retrograde in the middle of the year, creating a period of time when it will temporarily return to its previous sign of Pisces.
During this retrograde period, you may find yourself once again facing unfinished “challenges to your happiness.” However, you shouldn’t think of this as a negative thing. Rather, it will give you a valuable story to tell, one that will allow you to identify the causes that have prevented your good fortune and expansion in the past, and to “live your good fortune” anew. Once you return to the past, you will shake off the stagnation that has stuck to your destiny, and you will once again live the “right destiny” or “the destiny that was meant to be.”
This time, the story of good fortune and expansion for Leos will be divided into the following five periods:
(1) May 10, 2022 – July 28, 2022: The period when Jupiter stays in Aries. “Invitation from a new world.”
(2) July 28, 2022 – October 28, 2022: The period when Jupiter goes retrograde in Aries. “Determining the unknown.”
(3) October 28, 2022 – November 23, 2022: Jupiter retrogrades and goes back to Pisces. “Dive deep into yourself.”
(4) November 23, 2022 – December 20, 2022: Jupiter finishes retrograde and moves forward in Pisces. “Finish something properly.”
(5) December 20, 2022 – May 16, 2023: Jupiter stays in Aries again. “Create value by reaching out to new worlds.”
Below is a step-by-step explanation of each.
(1) May 10, 2022 – July 28, 2022: Invitation from a new world.
Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and expansion, and for about two and a half months starting May 10, 2022, a new world will open up in your mind. Perhaps you could describe this as a “distant world.” Places and people that you thought existed far away and out of your reach will enter a flow that brings them closer and closer to you. The expanding power of Jupiter will strengthen your connection to the “higher” and “distant” worlds beyond your daily life.
By “higher” worlds, we mean to think of those beyond your daily life and work. For example, service that goes beyond just finances, philosophy and spirituality that go beyond science, etc. These are noble worlds that go beyond the mundane. So far you have been wrestling with the real world. You have worked hard to achieve wealth, fame, or love, and at times you have achieved them, and at other times you have experienced setbacks. This time Jupiter attempts to take you “higher” by one step. You will be moving to a place where you can look down on your past efforts and struggles with a little more objectivity. Some of you will be getting higher positions within the company or group and managing people working in the field.
And by “distant” places, we mean places and people you have never had contact with, or hobbies you have never had an interest in, such as overseas, where the distance is very great. The word “distance” is aptly used to describe the feeling of distance, whether physical or psychological. For example, if you are a fan of pop songs, this time Jupiter may expand your mind and your surroundings to bring you into contact with jazz and classical music as well. It is also possible that you may suddenly become romantically interested in someone you never thought of before, or that a product you are involved with at work may become popular with an unexpected target group.
With Jupiter moving into Aries on May 10, 2022, your destiny is to take off “far” and “high.” In other words, you will be doing a great deal of growing! You may make a connection with someone you thought was out of reach, or you may find a job that you thought was impossible for you. Jupiter’s power will expand the presence of someone who has been distant from you for a long time.
However, what comes in the next two months will only be a premonition of what is to come. You will have a brief encounter with this new world, which will begin in earnest at the end of 2022, on May 10, 2022.
(2) July 28, 2022 – October 28, 2022: Determining the unknown.
Before the flow born in (1) gets stronger, you may find yourself with a lot of things you don’t need already. You must be properly prepared for your journey to the distant world, and there is only so much luggage you can take with you. So, you will have to decide what to leave behind. For some, it may be a relationship that has been stagnant that needs to be discarded. For others, it may be a useless routine that has accumulated over a long period of time or a task that they continue to do even though they know it has no meaning. Or it may be the very work you are doing now that you realize is not going anywhere anymore.
In the three months since Jupiter retrograde began on July 28, 2022, you will experience the scraping away of relationships, tasks, jobs, positions, or even routines that you have built up over the years as you embark on a new journey. You may have to let go of a profession, ability, or skill that has become your identity. You may have to say goodbye to a close relationship or a place where you have spent many years of your life. And partings can be painful. It takes a lot of energy to say goodbye to things that have become a part of your body through your daily life.
During this period, it is important to repeatedly imagine “where you want to go from here” and “what kind of person you want to be in the future.” This will bring to the surface what you do not need to do in the future. Instead of dwelling on the sadness of loss, you should find joy in narrowing down what you will need for the rest of your life. Don’t worry too much about loss — focus on what can now be gained.
(3) October 28, 2022 – November 23, 2022: Dive deep into yourself.
This is a period of around a month’s time when Jupiter goes back to one previous zodiac sign, Pisces, so much so that it goes into retrograde.
