In a couple of weeks, Jupiter will enter my fifth house for a brief, twelve-week stay before its retrograde phase takes it back into my fourth house.
Jupiter in the fifth house is a fun transit that lasts about a year, but I’m only getting a preview of what’s to come before the planet returns to my fourth house in late December. Nevertheless, I’m going to make the most of this brief reprise from the somewhat heavy Jupiter aspects that have plagued my chart for the last several months. Now that I’m vaccinated, I’m feeling eager to do everything that I haven’t been able to do for the past year.
“Cafe Astrology” offers the following interpretation of this event that makes it sound like a good time to have a good time:
“Your fair share of fun, romance, and good times are in store. You are especially imaginative, original in your self-expression, and creative during this cycle. Creative projects are likely to fare well, and could possibly even bring some type of recognition or reward. Love and romance may enter your life or is enhanced with good humor and warmth, and social engagements abound. For singles, meeting a special person is highly likely, although it is not necessarily a person who is “partnership material”. You are feeling quite free from responsibilities at this time, making it easier for you to let your hair down and have a good time! Investments in stocks and other speculative matters could earn good profits. Healthy risks are likely to pay off, but be careful of overconfidence in speculative investments. Relationships with your children may be especially fulfilling now. Pregnancy or childbirth may occur during this period, if applicable. This is a fabulous year in which to take a vacation you’ve always wanted to take. Those with artistic or athletic talent can be especially prolific and prosperous at this time. Your creativity and social life are stimulated this year, and plenty of opportunities to express yourself uniquely and creatively will present themselves. You may find great joy and reward in your creative projects and hobbies, and could discover a previously hidden talent for a particular craft. Pleasure-seeking activities, recreation, and amusement are increased. You are far less inhibited when it comes to expressing yourself creatively, and you are a lot more fun to be around.”
While I’m looking forward to being “more fun to be around,” I’m also quite intrigued by the first line of this passage. ” Your fair share of fun, romance, and good times” could be a little Karmic payback for the shitty year I had in 2020 while so many planetary heavyweights hovered around my IC. However, I am a little worried that Jupiter also enters Pisces a couple of days after it enters my Placidus fifth house. Although Jupiter is at home in Pisces, it can inspire some rather reckless behavior when it transits the sign because it inspires people to believe what they want to believe despite all evidence to the contrary. That’s the last thing I need!
Yet the idea of being more creative thrills me. I’ve been complaining about not feeling creative for ages now. If I can just a writing project off the ground before the gym where I work opens up again, I won’t feel as if I’ve wasted the opportunity that being stuck at home has given me, and maybe I won’t feel like a Party City location with a “STORE CLOSING” sign hanging above the door when Jupiter returns to my fourth house at the end of July.
I guess we’ll see what happens soon enough!
