Jupiter in Pisces Puts a Spotlight on Spiritual Law: Inborn Freedom of Conscience
Jupiter transiting Pisces indicates a period of time when spiritual (Pisces) law (Jupiter) is in the spotlight.
Jupiter first dipped into earliest Pisces from May 13 to July 28, 2021. Jupiter re-entered Pisces on December 28, 2021, and it will transit the sign until May 10, 2022. Jupiter will slip back into latest Pisces for one final concentration point, for one final sweep of the Cosmic Spotlight over late Pisces, from October 27 to December 20, 2022 before moving into Aries for good.
Jupiter in Pisces is illuminating many aspects of spiritual law during this transit, including the inborn or God-given rights of biological human beings such as: freedom of thought, freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, freedom to choose and practise our spirituality (or lack thereof), freedom of association, freedom of peaceful assembly, freedom of movement, personal autonomy over body, mind, soul, and spirit, freedom to protect ourselves from harm, autonomy over our homes and the land on which we live, freedom to work, freedom to pursue happiness, meaning, and satisfaction in life, freedom to be peaceful, freedom of privacy, freedom to know and pursue the truth, and freedom to reject the authority of anyone or anything that contravenes or threatens these sacred rights and freedoms.
The transit of wounded healer Chiron in Aries (2018 to 2027) has a particular theme of human rights and the painful infringement on those rights, including via a health-based rationale. Jupiter transiting Aries (May 10 to October 27, 2022 and December 21, 2022 to May 16, 2023) will put a spotlight on all these rights-related issues, making them even bigger and bolder.
It's imperative that we know our rights under spiritual law during Jupiter in Pisces so that we can actively defend our rights and the rights of others from such infringements during Jupiter in Aries. There will be an expanded (Jupiter) requirement to fight for our rights (Aries) as biological human beings, including body autonomy, privacy, and medical choice (Chiron).
Jupiter will form one exact conjunction to wounded healer Chiron on March 11, 2023 at 14 degrees Aries, but the Jupiter-Chiron conjunction will be ithin orb for most of the transit of Jupiter in Aries. Asteroid of hearth and home, Vesta, will form a triple conjunction on 14 degrees Aries at the time, along with Jupiter and Chiron. This indicates a background that involves a long, historical fight for these rights against those who would infringe upon them. It also indicates a major investment of time, energy, and resources in this historical fight, and we will be drawing on this investment for support in the present-day battles. We'll be taking tips from those who have fought these same battles in the past.
Jupiter-Chiron-Vesta conjunction at 14 degrees Aries - March 11, 2023
With Jupiter moving from Pisces to Aries this May, it's important to understand the difference between inborn, inherent, or God-given rights and the version of rights that are encoded in man-made law. As we have seen, the rights encoded in man-made law are being removed by governments that have given themselves the right to do so with some fancy legalese footwork and "emergency orders"... The inborn right I'd like to focus on today is: freedom of conscience. I think this freedom has been infringed upon particularly egregiously over the past two years. One of the many inborn rights we have as human beings is freedom of conscience. This means we are free to live according to our own consciences and understanding of right and wrong as long as we are not breaking spiritual law. Freedom of conscience is an inalienable right, inborn in each biological human being. This right is not granted to us by any external authority on Earth, and it cannot be taken away from us by any external authority on Earth.
No one has the right to force you to live in contravention of your conscience. We can only be stripped of our inborn rights and freedoms, including freedom of conscience, if we willingly give them up. Ay, there's the rub.
One of the problems with the current global scenario is that people are being intentionally misled and/or coerced into going against their own consciences and sense of right and wrong.
People might go against their consciences - going along with things they know deep-down are wrong - to maintain employment, relationships, power, public status, social approval, or other perks that come with following the crowd and adhering to dominant narratives. People can also have their natural consciences interfered with by bad information or partial information. In this case, people believe they're doing the right thing, but only because they've gotten some very bad intel and don't have a full understanding of the situation. These people are basically tricked, manipulated, or duped into giving up their moral compasses and the right to live by their own consciences. Some people find going against the crowd and the dominant narratives more challenging than others, and it's possible this could be visible in their astrological make-ups.
Certain signs, like Capricorn, Cancer, and Taurus, are more tradition and authority-minded and might find it difficult to disobey authority figures or to rock any boats.
The sociable and social approval-conscious air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) can definitely have a bit of a "go along to get along" theme. These signs might be more willing to talk out both sides of their mouths, depending on the audience, in order to maintain social harmony and acceptance. They might be more willing to go along with the crowd simply because they fear rocking any boats or ruffling any feathers. The conflict-averse among us can justify quite a lot in their efforts to avoid confrontation or other social unpleasantness. In my observation, the sign of Aquarius can be particularly conflicted when it comes to the dueling desires for social acceptance/status and the autonomy to do its own thing in the world. As we are now moving into stronger Age of Aquarius themes, with Saturn currently transiting the sign and Pluto entering the sign in March 2023, acknowledging these conflicting desires is important as we move forward.
While the sign of Aquarius is known for being open to the unconventional, even to the straight-up odd or weird, there is also a strongly conservative element of this sign that desires social and public status, approval within the group. Traditionally, Aquarius was ruled by status quo-loving Saturn. It wasn't until the 1800s that Uranus was assigned to Aquarius, opening a new chapter for the sign that involved more of the avant garde - edginess, shake-ups, shocks, upsets, and general revolutionary breaks from the status quo.
Saturn is currently transiting Aquarius (March 22, 2020 to March 7, 2023), and we're all challenged by the dueling desires and conflicted nature of this sign, as well as the effects these dueling desires have in our communities. During this transit, we're challenged to build a community and a world around us where we can follow our consciences with the least amount of friction, opposition, or difficulty possible. The only way we can truly be free on this planet is by following our consciences. Going against our consciences to maintain approval, acceptance, privileges, or rewards is, ultimately, a controlled and orchestrated existence.
There are consequences that come from going against our consciences, even while in a state of delusion or mass (masked?) psychosis. If you are a believer that the soul or spirit continues after physical death, you know that these consequences can follow us even after we've left this Earthy life.
Though Jupiter can definitely be associated with bad situations being made even bigger and badder, this planet is generally considered a beneficial influence, referred to as the Greater Benefic. Jupiter is currently shining its light on the spiritual laws that underpin life on this planet. This gives us the opportunity for greater understanding of spiritual law on Earth so that we can align our own thoughts, behaviours, actions, and choices with it.
As mentioned in a previous article, we will be tested and challenged on our understanding and application of spiritual law, including freedom of conscience, during the upcoming transit of Saturn in Pisces (March 7, 2023 to February 13, 2026). Saturn is a planet that brings concrete consequences to us that we must work our way out of, step-by-step, over time. Saturn is a planet related to lessons, including hard lessons, that result in increased maturity and experience.
Just as Saturn enters Pisces on March 7, 2023, Jupiter will be forming the triple conjunction with Chiron and Vesta at 14 degrees Aries, exact March 11, 2023. Pluto will also enter Aquarius on March 24, 2023. It's all connected. It always was, and it always will be. We've just experienced a New Moon at 12 degrees Pisces on March 2. This New Moon was tightly conjunct Jupiter at 14 degrees Pisces, and it initiated a lunar cycle (March 2 to April 1) that involves expanded awareness of spiritual law and its application in our daily lives. At the time of the Pisces New Moon, Venus, Mars, and Pluto were tightly conjunct in late Capricorn, and Mercury was exactly conjunct Saturn at 18 degrees Aquarius. We're encouraged during this lunar cycle - and during the comparatively benevolent transit of Jupiter in Pisces - to get right with our consciences and moral compasses and to live in alignment with these things, even when this creates social or professional waves. There is long-term power and protection in doing so. Jupiter relates to the truth, and we are tasked with diligently seeking the truth in a world of illusions, deceptions, half-truths, and lies (Pisces), being expertly pumped into the collective ethers daily by the various pyramid schemes of power on this planet.
Again, there are consequences to doing the wrong thing, even when you were under the mistaken impression that it was the right thing. There are consequences to falling for schemes, scams, and mirages, even when we fell for them in a state of innocent ignorance. Even in this state, there are admissions to make, corrections to make, amends to make. There is expanded awareness to embrace so that the same mistakes don't happen again. Saturn is bringing up the rear in the sign of the fishies beginning in March 2023, and it will be grinding us on every neglected detail.
To put yourself in good standing, make sure you're willing to accept any consequences then, under Saturn in Pisces, for the stances and actions you take now, under Jupiter in Pisces.
