Deep Dive May 2021
On May 14th, Jupiter, which expands things, enters the sign of Pisces. It will be there for 2 1/2 months. Then a retrograde takes it back to the sign of Aquarius. It returns to Pisces from December 28 until May of 2022.
Pisces is a vulnerable, compassionate, intuitive expression. It is the last sign in the process of the zodiac and is best used for surrendering to Spirit and letting go. You may experience yourself feeling impressionable and sympathetic. The psyche takes a larger seat in our lives than usual. It is a wonderful time for artistic creativity, and empathetic social action. Because Pisces can be unworldly it is also important to know that it includes being gullible and some people will be taking advantage by deception or by preying on the innocence of others.
Pisces is not goal oriented. You could feel adrift or spaced out. The conscious mind is out in Bastrop County with a paper bag over its head, but the subconscious mind is stunningly available. Be sure to include down time in your schedule for being meditative or just listening for what shows up. Watch for signs from Nature’s creatures. Pay attention to your dreams. Pisces also “rules” addictions so instead of overdoing your emotional rescues, talk to someone who cares.
On top of this touching Pisces energy, Mars entered the sign of Cancer on April 24th and will stay there until June 11th. Mars, the action planet will direct itself toward facilitating and protecting home and family. Domestic projects will be even more in the forefront than they were last year in lock-down. (The North Node was in Cancer then). The sign of Cancer is also vulnerable, even timid. Mars can also be the planet of anger so watch out for being passive aggressive or grouchy if you are not getting your way. Go ahead and be corny and sentimental. It is the right time for that.
The last time Jupiter was in Pisces in 2010 the movie “The King’s Speech” was released and it swept the Academy Awards. It is the story of King George V who suffered agony and humiliation because he stammered. History thrust him into the Kingship when his brother abdicated the throne of the United Kingdom to marry a divorcee. The movie is a heart opener as we see the tender and also determined support of his loving wife and his two young daughters. An oddball brilliant speech therapist who treats the King as an equal helps to heal him in a very compassionate way. King George emerges with strength to lead his country as Hitler begins his conquest of Europe. It is a sure-fire tear jerker that can help you release some of your own feelings.
