Jupiter is the planet of expansion, and thus expands anything it touches all at once.
So, Jupiter is often called the “lucky planet” because it leads people to happiness through the positive expansion of things, money, emotions, concepts, and relationships. 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 more interesting and complex, with more to keep track of. Essentially, 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, this is not a negative thing. Rather, you will have 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 Capricorn will be divided into the following five periods:
(1) May 10, 2022 – July 28, 2022: The period when Jupiter stays in Aries. “Your relationship with the world grows more intimate.”
(2) July 28, 2022 – October 28, 2022: The period when Jupiter goes retrograde in Aries. “Cut off unnecessary things.”
(3) October 28, 2022 – November 23, 2022: Jupiter retrogrades and goes back to Pisces. “Meet the people you missed and the words you should have acquired.”
(4) November 23, 2022 – December 20, 2022: Jupiter finishes retrograde and moves forward in Pisces. “Expansion of words and interactions.”
(5) December 20, 2022 – May 16, 2023: Jupiter stays in Aries again. “Find a place to return to.”
Below is a step-by-step explanation of each.
(1) May 10, 2022 – July 28, 2022: “Your relationship with the world grows more intimate.”
As we’ve explained, Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and expansion. And during the two-and-a-half-month period beginning May 10, 2022, Jupiter will bring you closer to the world.
Intimacy is a heart-to-heart relationship. This is a period when Jupiter works its magic on the people, places, and environments that surround you so that the world will be on your side. This may strengthen your relationships with family members or deepen those with close friends. It may deepen your relationship with like-minded lovers to an affection that goes beyond romance. As these relationships deepen in intimacy, the world around you will change shape accordingly. Intimacy may lead to marriage, and intimacy may lead to childbirth. Intimacy can transform the place we are in into a place we can call home, and intimacy can lead us to a vocation in the work we are involved in. Although it is only for two and a half months, Jupiter can create a “place to return to” in the long run by bringing you and your surroundings closer together.
Or perhaps this period is the time when the premonition of a “place to return to” will be born. Intimacy is something that takes time to develop, and it seems unlikely that it will fully develop in this short period of time. The sprouts, the “nubs” of intimacy, so to speak, should be planted in you during this period, but it seems that Jupiter will begin retrograde before they can fully grow strong. So you are likely to experience just a little bit of the expanding intimacy and “place to return to” that will eventually come to you during this period.
Jupiter carries good fortune. And the good fortune that is brought to you is like the budding of intimacy, and when it blossoms, you will be led to the right “place to return to.” It could be work, love, or family relationships, but it is a foundational place where being there will allow you to embark on new adventures.
(2) July 28, 2022 – October 28, 2022: “Cut off unnecessary things.”
Before the current energy in (1) gets stronger, you may find yourself with a lot of things you don’t need already. You must be properly prepared to embark on a new journey, and there is only so much luggage you can take with you, so it is important to decide what to leave behind.
It may be a relationship that you don’t already need. Or it may be a group or organization to which you should no longer belong. There may even be events that make you realize that the language or skills you have acquired are no longer applicable to today’s world.
During the first three months of Jupiter retrograde — which begins on July 28, 2022 — you will experience a whittling down of relationships, places, and groups to find a new place to belong. You may have to let go of skills and abilities that have become part of your identity. Sometimes this can be painful. It takes a lot of energy to let go of something that you have already acquired.
If you experience a loss of something important to you in a mysterious way, you need to make an effort to see the inevitable in it. Often, there is a fatalistic significance to “somehow it just happens.” And if such an experience comes, it will be important to imagine yourself becoming sharper and sharper, always aware of what you want to do, where you want to go, and who you want to be with. It is important to focus on the joy of lightness, not the sadness of loss.
(3) October 28, 2022 – November 23, 2022: “Meet the people you missed and the words you should have acquired.”
About a month beginning October 28, 2022 is a period when Jupiter returns to one previous zodiac sign, Pisces, due to continued retrograde motion.
