Jupiter is the planet of growth, expansion, optimism and hope. Neptune in astrology signifies spirituality, sacrifice, selflessness, inspiration, transcendence and oneness. Whenever these two planets form a rare conjunction, their energies blend seamlessly, in what promises to be a major uplift to humanity’s consciousness levels.
Jupiter and Neptune form a conjunction approximately once every 12-13 years, with the conjunction occurring up to three times in each zodiac sign before moving to the next sign. The impact of these conjunctions can be traced via mankind’s spiritual development.
On April 12th, 2022, Jupiter and Neptune will meetup in Pisces, the most spiritually connected zodiac sign of all, in a cosmic event which has not been seen since 1856.
This magical conjunction brings us the chance to tap into potent manifestation opportunities, and it speeds up and magnifies our ongoing planetary mind-shift.
Compassion will be a major theme of this conjunction, and it encourages us to give more freely - charitable giving, yes, but more importantly to give of ourselves - to give our time, our understanding, our empathy and our care to all of those who feel marginalized or who are overlooked by society’s structures and systems.
Many of us sense that consciousness vibrations are rising across the planet as more and more people become aware of their spiritual gifts and possibilities. When Jupiter conjuncts Neptune, some will experience a major spiritual awakening, which will jolt them out of their comfort zone and may be quite disconcerting at the time, before eventually leading them to explore their true potential.
Those already on a spiritual pathway will find this conjunction illuminating, inspiring and full of hope. It’s a very idealistic vibe, however, and we do have to be careful not to get carried away on idealistic dreams. All of this positive energy will mean nothing if we don’t find practical ways to implement it.
On a more mundane level, the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction can prove problematic for finances, as it encourages over-optimism and vagueness. If you’re signing any important agreements at this time, you must be careful with details; get expert advice where necessary.
How Will Jupiter Conjunct Neptune Affect Each Zodiac Sign?
Each zodiac sign will experience the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction slightly differently, but for all signs, a fundamental shift in consciousness is likely to occur. The strength of this will depend on the individual’s natal chart and on what other planetary activity is triggering the chart at the same time.
Aries Sun Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction activates the most spiritual sector of your natal birth chart, so you can expect to feel a very strong sense of calling, vocation or spirituality during this transit. You may feel moved to help others in a major way - but don’t allow your big ideas and even bigger ambitions to get lost among confusion and too much idealism. Be practical.
Taurus Sun Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
During the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction, focus on creating a tribe around you which truly matches your goals, your spiritual aspirations and your authentic being. You may feel drawn to new people, or drawn away from those who are - knowingly or not - holding you back. Find a group which feels like home and start to work within it.
Gemini Sun Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
This Jupiter-Neptune conjunction takes place in the career zone of your natal birth chart and will cause you to ask how much what you do for a living really matters. You will want to do something meaningful as work, so look into a career change or re-training if you feel that your current job does not allow you to make as much difference as you would like.
Cancer Sun Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
For you, this Jupiter-Neptune conjunction is all about breaking down boundaries. You may feel drawn to travel, particularly to under-privileged parts of the world, or you may feel inexplicably drawn towards people from other cultures and backgrounds than your own. You want to give a voice to humanity’s common values, because you instinctively understand that we have more in common than could ever divide us.
Leo Sun Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
Strong karmic links are activated during this Jupiter-Neptune transit, particularly in your personal life. You may find yourself drawn to someone who ordinarily isn’t “good” for you, or with whom you have had a troubled relationship in the past. Look into soul groups, in order to understand why someone you dislike seems so important at this time.
Virgo Sun Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
With the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction taking place in your opposite sign, you are likely to feel its impact in your love life. This is the perfect time to develop more spiritual forms of intimacy with your partner, or to undertake a shared spiritual retreat or quest. If you are single, look out for a chance encounter with a stranger you suddenly feel that you’ve always known.
Libra Sun Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
During this Jupiter-Neptune conjunction, you will begin to understand that in order to heal others, you first must heal yourself. This can be a hugely inspirational and positive time for your mental health, especially if you have been through trauma in the past. You are being given the green light to bring yourself to full wellness, so that you can help others do the same.
Scorpio Sun Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
This Jupiter-Neptune conjunction brings you a fearless attitude, a little like the Fool in tarot. You are inspired by your faith in spirit and your knowledge that whatever happens, you will be OK. This means that you can take a leap of faith during this transit - dare to do something amazing, knowing that the risk you take will be rewarded.
Sagittarius Sun Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
Past life relationships become very important to you, because this Jupiter-Neptune conjunction occurs in the roots zone of your natal birth chart. Explore where your roots are, way back in history and through the mists of time. Undertake soul journeying, meditation, regression or dream journeys to understand where you come from, so that you can understand where you are going.
Capricorn Sun Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
Your role during this Jupiter-Neptune conjunction is as a sacred communicator. There is power in your words, and people will pay attention to what you say. Use this gift to throw light onto a problem, highlighting an issue, driving change and forcing people to look at what they’d rather not see. You are a champion for the underdog now; don’t waste this chance to create change.
Aquarius Sun Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
This Jupiter-Neptune conjunction occurs in the money zone of your natal birth chart, so you should be very careful with large transactions at this time - the energies are confusing and nebulous. However, you do have the chance to create a brand-new relationship with abundance now, by focusing on gratitude for what you already have, rather than on wanting more.
Pisces Sun Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Jupiter Conjunct Neptune
This Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in your own sign is a very special time for you. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to embody your spiritual nature. Go full on Pisces, and don’t be afraid to show your mystical, ethereal, other-worldly self. Your psychic powers are greatly enhanced, and you can truly be a way-shower during this period. Humanity needs you; it’s your time to guide us.
