This week there is a major conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune. This is when two planets are in the same sign, at the same degree, at the same place and at the same time. (A bit of trivia: Jada Pinkett Smith has a Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in her chart.) The last time this particular conjunction in Pisces took place was on March 17, 1856, which was 166 years ago. It’s also interesting to note that was when Russia lost a religious war. Hmmm. What does this mean for the rest of us? Increased spiritual idealism, sensitivity and finely-tuned intuition. Marvelous creativity! But there will also be unrealistic expectations, and conspiracy theories, false news and disappointments where people are disillusioned. Needless to say, thousands, maybe millions, of young children will make the shattering discovery of who the tooth fairy is.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Perhaps more than any other sign, this major conjunction will boost your curiosity and appreciation of your spiritual world. Very possibly, something will happen that makes you more aware than ever about the interconnectedness of everything in the universe – and certainly, people. Nothing is individually separate. Everything is connected. You might find yourself in a situation where you are happy to be selfless and work for the benefit of someone else. For some reason, you might need to put your own wants and needs second to the wants and needs of another person. You won’t resent this. Au contraire! You will feel satisfied and rewarded. (Is that halo getting a bit snug?)
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This rare conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune will take place in the part of your chart that is related to friendships, as well as your dealings with groups, clubs and organizations. You might find that you idealize a friend. Or you might be very grateful for your friends. You might also become committed to an organization with a mandate to help others because this compassionate ideology will appeal to you. This same part of your chart is also related to your ability to set future goals for yourself. This means you might find yourself modifying or changing your future goals to embrace your ideals in a more personally, rewarding way. (Mother Teresa had her Moon in Taurus.)
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This rare conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune will take place at the top of your chart this week. This is bound to affect your ideals and even your life direction. You will find gratifying if you have a chance to explore doing anything that will benefit others, especially those in need. You will want to be part of something bigger than yourself. You want to make a difference – even if it’s small. The point is it does make a difference. Because this conjunction is at the top of your chart your idealism will shine, and others will see that you are embracing these values. You will be admired by others. Someone might even approach you to ask for help.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This rare and unusual conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune will take place in the part of your chart that will inspire you to travel and do whatever you can to expand your horizons. You will see that travel will allow you to understand more about the world. In addition, it will connect you to a deeper part of yourself, which will make you feel more whole and more in touch with everything. You might also pursue idealistic philosophies and consciousness -expanding groups because you want to get in touch with higher truths – something meaningful. Someone from another culture might enter your world now. Hopefully, this is a beneficial contact. Nevertheless, be careful of over idealizing someone and not really seeing who they are.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Each of us will feel this rare conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune in a different way. For your sign, it will affect your financial scene, and especially how your finances interact with others – partners, close friends and anyone close to you. It will be easy for you to be generous, and give what you have to those in need. You won’t resent this. In fact, you will feel grateful that you’re in a position to be able to do this. In turn, because we know that everything in the universe is interconnected, then, most definitely – what goes around comes around! Therefore, you will also receive gifts, favours and a sense of abundance and self-respect because of your generosity to others.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
How very interesting! This rare conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune is taking place exactly opposite your sign, which means it will affect your relations with partners, spouses and close friends. Most likely, you will idealize someone close to you. You will certainly respect them more than usual. You will see their fine qualities and be happy to know that this excellent person is in your life. Having said that, this Jupiter/Neptune conjunction comes with rose-coloured glasses. Oh yeah. You might also feel disillusioned by someone close to and disappointed because you expected more. Work to find a middle ground that is realistic and yet, kind and compassionate.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You are entering a lovely, dreamy, feel-good week! This is because the rare Jupiter/Neptune conjunction (the first that has occurred in 166 years) will affect your health, your job and your pet. Some of you might get a new pet and feel thrilled and lovey-dovey with your new pal. More likely, something will occur in your actual job or with work that you might consider doing that is humanitarian, or some kind of effort on your part that makes the world a better place. In turn, you will feel gratified and personally rewarded. With respect to your health, this is a tricky astrological influence because it could indicate an improvement in your well-being, or it could magnify something that is confusing. Oops.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Well, you are a Water Sign, and this rare and unusual conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces will definitely impact you, most likely in a favourable way. It will boost your good health and feelings of well-being. It will make you feel content and happy, and at the same time, more in touch with your creative potential. Your self-confidence will be strong. In fact, you will feel that you can do anything! Because Jupiter is associated with wealth, this is an excellent time for financial matters for your sign. Quite likely, you will work to make your surroundings more elegant and spend some money doing so. (“The colour is perfect! And definitely, the velvet.”) Children will be a source of joy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This week the rare conjunction of your ruler Jupiter with Neptune in the sign of Pisces will give you wonderful opportunities to improve your home. You will work to make it look more elegant and luxurious. You might want to entertain so that you can show off your clever ideas. Likewise, this will be an excellent week to pursue real-estate opportunities because they will almost surely bring you a profit now or in the future. This same influence will promote goodwill among your family members. In fact, relatives may want to help you or vice versa. You will be happy to help a family member who is in need of assistance.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This rare conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune that takes place this week will be a wonderful boost to your overall sense of optimism. You will believe in yourself and your ability to do things. In fact, you will believe that nothing is impossible. This lovely influence will also improve dealings with daily contacts like neighbours, siblings and relatives. It will heighten your interest in learning and studying lofty ideas and philosophies, especially knowledge related to other cultures and different countries. Thank you! (English); Gracias! (Spanish); Merci! (French); Danke! (German); Arigatou! (Japanese); Tack (Swedish) and Dyakayu! (Ukrainian).
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Good news! This week the rare conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune takes place in your House of Earnings. Jupiter is the planet related to wealth and good fortune. Many of you will become richer or see ways to boost your income or get a better paying job. Some of you will perhaps buy something luxurious for yourself so that you “feel” richer. You might also see ways to use what you own to benefit others, especially someone in need. If so, this will be a gratifying and rewarding feeling for you. If you believe in past and future lives, then the only thing that you “take with you” after you die is your generosity. (Curious, when you think about it.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Jupiter and Neptune will line up perfectly this week in your sign. This is a rare and unusual event, which last occurred in 1856 – 166 years ago. This means for this entire week, you will feel blissful, peaceful and full of harmonious vibes filled with love, understanding and compassion for everyone. Humanitarian impulses and opportunities to be generous to others will present themselves to you, and in turn, if you act on these, you will feel personally rewarded and gratified. Teamwork will be easy. You will also find it easy to forgive those who have been petty and even harmful to you. (Actually, when you forgive your enemies, it drives them crazy.)
