Planetarily, these have been years of darkness, blocking the ability to see the positive that can come from isolation and change. Sometimes people don’t change until they experience extreme circumstances. If we refuse to adapt in some way, we can remain stuck until we let go of something that’s keeping us pinned in.
We hold on because it's familiar, but it can prevent us from moving outside of certain life patterns. Sometimes holding on tight can add years to remaining stuck, when that doesn’t have to happen. In these next 6 months through early April 2022, we are finishing up a cycle that began in 2009, and closing out the parts we no longer need for the next one. The next is a 12 to 13-year cycle with Jupiter and Neptune coming together in a conjunction. It is called the synodic cycle of Jupiter/Neptune, which brings a need to expand our imagination.
Jupiter and Neptune are both rulers of Pisces. Traditionally Jupiter is a freeing influence. .. a ‘big’ thinker or visionary, while Neptune is associated with Spirit, the arts, music, imagination, as well as association with a lack of boundaries, or being lost in depression or fog. It has both sides, ranging from the ecstatic experience to madness. Therefore, whenever these two (neptune/jupiter) come together, we can find new directions and new ways of thinking through our imagination, and setting aside judgments that prevent us from pursuing dreams.
The new cycle begins April 12, 2022. Since 2009, technology has grown exponentially. Access has increased. Information is rampant. Some of it is good and some of it is not beneficial. Aquarius rules access to networks, and social media that began at that time has, at times, taken over. As we leave the 2009 cycle behind, some of it could crash (YAY!) or become outdated as we begin the new next April.
The next cycle is in Pisces ...23degrees, the Scorpio section of Pisces. This is a more human and transformative energy, which is perfect for creative pursuits. Creativity connects us to Spirit, so this combination invites us to reconnect to Spirit. Whether it is going to traditional houses of worship or meditating or taking time out of doors – it's about reconnecting to something greater than the self.
Jupiter/Neptune in the sign of Pisces opens the unconscious mind. Dreams become more vivid and can be a source of information not available in waking states.
Imaginative ideas derive from Neptune energy, and the virtual roads are in place. Now to put something life changing on those roads. This is where the upcoming cycle of Jupiter and Neptune steps in.
As we finish up the technological growth cycle, it offers conduits for more creative expression. Over the course of the next few months, you may start thinking about the times your life where you felt most creative. So wonder about the possibilities and explore how to make them happen. Sometimes the creative expressions we started long ago come back again. These next few months are about exploring those options.
