On May 11th, 2022 Jupiter enters Aries. This is undoubtedly one of the most important transits of the year.
Jupiter in Aries is big and bold. This is not your usual Aries “just do it” type of energy… this is a “let’s do it BIG” type of energy. From May 2022 until May 2023, we have 12 months of Aries opportunities on steroids. And what does Aries stand for?
Aries keywords are action, initiative, boldness, determination, taking a stand, listening to our gut, bringing things into existence, making things happen.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and it’s all about “Me”. Not in a selfish way. Knowing who we are and what we want are a prerequisite for everything else. Jupiter in Aries shifts our focus away from the collective (Jupiter in Pisces), asking us to pay attention to our own needs. If Jupiter in Pisces was a good time to dream of a new vision of the future, Jupiter in Aries is the time to take decisive action towards turning these visions into realities. When Jupiter is in Aries, nothing can stop us from going for what we want.
One interesting thing about this transit is that while Juptiter is in Aries, we will have all the slow-moving planets occupying 5 consecutive signs of the zodiac, in a locomotive-like formation. We have Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn in Aquarius, Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter in Aries, and Uranus in Taurus. The last 3 signs of the zodiac connect with the fist 2 signs of the zodiac, setting things into motion.

The Jupiter in Aries transit starts with a BANG. The bang is the highly dynamic Jupiter-Mars conjunction on May 29th, 2022.
After this conjunction, Jupiter goes into a sort of hibernation, and doesn’t make any major aspects for 9 months.
In March 2023, Jupiter in Aries ‘wakes up’, making a highly energizing, 4-stellium conjunction with Chiron, Venus and Mercury. All the energy that Jupiter has been building up in the first 9 months of the transit powerfully unleashes in March 2023. This is when we will get to witness the true power of this transit.
Jupiter in Aries transit starts with a BANG and ends with a BIG BANG. Exactly as it leaves Aries and moves into Taurus, in May 2023 Jupiter squares Pluto at 0° Aquarius. Aspects at 0° of signs are very important because they speak of important new beginnings. This Jupiter-Pluto square is the first square of the Jupiter-Pluto cycle that began in March 2020.
The Jupiter-Pluto square carries an “all or nothing” energy that will shake us to the core.
Aquarius is a collective sign that symbolizes society with its norms and conventions. Taurus is our personal, individual values. When these 2 giants are at cross purposes, our personal values clash with those of society.
Jupiter-Pluto square will address the same themes the Saturn-Uranus square has addressed in 2021-2022, but will take a completely different approach. If the Saturn-Uranus square has been sloooow and frustrating, Jupiter square Pluto is fast and furious. This is a ‘let’s get on with it’, ‘let’s get it done at all costs’ type of energy.
Jupiter Conjunct Chiron In Aries – March 2023
The most important transit of the Jupiter in Aries cycle is Jupiter conjunct Chiron. We only have a Jupiter-Chiron conjunction every 17 years on average, so Jupiter conjunct Chiron is by far, the most important Jupiter transit during its stay in Aries.
Jupiter conjunct Chiron comes with opportunities for healing and growth. Jupiter expands the qualities of the planet it touches; when Jupiter is conjunct Chiron we will have an expansion of Chiron themes: body-spirit integration, holistic healing, coming to terms with our dual nature.
Jupiter makes Chiron more accessible, bringing coherence and alignment. When Jupiter is conjunct Chiron, healing doesn’t have to be that hard – Jupiter will point to the path of least resistance.
Jupiter and Chiron have a lot in common. Jupiter rules Sagittarius, which is symbolized by a half-man, half-horse centaur. Chiron is a centaur himself. Both Jupiter and Chiron are connected with spirituality, teaching, and mentorship.
When Jupier conjuncts Chiron, we are offered opportunities to find healing by integrating our duality, by coming to terms with the different parts of ourselves that don’t normally ‘work’ together.
Jupiter conjunct Chiron is also a great time to find a mentor or a teacher we deeply resonate with, or to become a teacher ourselves.
