The planets’ dance through the Zodiac winds to an end in the sign of salt tears and imagination, ecstasy and dissipation, the sign of universal love, lost souls and the ocean depths, Pisces.
Right now, two major planets, Jupiter and Neptune, are tracing the last graceful steps of their own cosmic gavottes. And both are in rulership in Pisces, which means that here in the watery realm, they are super-powered. Indeed, Piscean power, in both its terror and glory, is magnified twice over.
This is an extraordinary time. Jupiter visits Pisces only every 12 years, and Neptune comes only every 160 years. The last time they were both in Pisces was in 1856, and before then in 1690, and before then 1524.
This summer, Jupiter is making a brief visit to Pisces (14 May- 28 July), but he will be back from 29 December-11 May, 2022, and again 28 October-20 December, 2022. He will make one exact conjunction with mighty Neptune on 12 April 2022.
So we are getting a brief taste of what this powerful combination feels like right now in June, especially as both planets station to turn retrograde in the final weeks of the month. This a potent moment — although it could well be something you experience internally, quietly, emotionally.
For some of us, the Piscean lure is to oblivion, fantasy, fiction — drugs, dancing, moonshine and fairy rings. For others, the potential is for a spiritual expansion, a glimpse of the divine. Boundaries will be broken somewhere for everyone. I noticed last week that a giant avalanche took place on the ocean floor.
Love, to be lost in love, to float in the sea of love, to feel divine love: these also may be available to you. Stay alive to this moment now, and set your imagination free. Next year may be special.
And then the cosmic round will begin again with a spark and a jump in the fiery Ram.
Jupiter turns retrograde on 20 June at 2°Pisces.
Neptune turns retrograde on 25 June at 23° Pisces.
