Being an astrologer is a bit like being a meteorologist. You can observe the trends, but you can’t predict the details, at least not with reliable accuracy.
The past few years have been interesting to say the least. We had the conjunction of Saturn (hardship) and Pluto (death and regeneration) in 2020, which astrologers warned could bring financial and other hardships. With Neptune in Pisces, sign of its modern rulership and associated with viruses, there was an indication of a mysterious illness. But the kind of pandemic of the wide-ranging proportions which we have experienced came as a surprise to all but the most tuned-in virologists.
In 2021 we had the challenging square from Saturn to Uranus, planet of radical change and liberation. Civil unrest, rebellion against Covid control measures…all of this was relatively predictable.
In 2022 we have a conjunction from Jupiter to Neptune on April 12. Conjunctions from Jupiter to Neptune occur about every twelve years, but what makes this one relatively unique is that Jupiter and Neptune are connected through their co-rulership of Pisces. Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces (with Neptune being the modern ruler), and Jupiter and Neptune share an expansive view of the world, and a desire to bring true meaning into our lives. However, Jupiter’s focus is more on the expansion of the Self through a pursuit of meaning and Truth where the Neptunian desire to submerge the Self requires an annihilation of individuality for the sake of Universal consciousness and creative inspiration. It is here where trouble can sometimes occur.
