Alignment of Jupiter, Neptune in Pisces Hasn’t Occurred in 160 Years
Jupiter and Neptune will be in conjunction in Pisces, which hasn’t happened in more than 160 years. What does this mean for humanity and the planet? And how should you greet this cosmic phenomenon?
The two planets will soon be in conjunction, where they appear to be close to each other when observed from Earth, and they will be in Pisces, something we have not seen since 1856.
Astrologer Mercedes Arnus Arraut explains what this means to us.
“Jupiter is the planet of news, knowledge, (and) media, and Neptune is the planet of spirituality, higher reals, higher dimensions, the ethereal — things that you cannot explain, the mystical,” Arraut said. “Something very interesting is that Pisces, the constellation where both Jupiter and Neptune unite, is the realm of both Jupiter and Neptune because before Neptune was discovered the Pisces constellation was ruled by Jupiter. So the fact that both these celestial bodies unite in both of their realms in Pisces, it’s very redundant energy where this mystical Pisces energy is going to be blooming all of our lives.”
This conjunction is in April, but we may be feeling the effects now.
“So the time this conjunction peaks is in the middle of April. This doesn’t mean we’re only going to feel it in April, because starting the Piscean month, which starts the 18th of February, we’re going to be having a boom of Pisces energy because the Sun is going to be walking towards this constellation — throughout this constellation — and both highlighting the energy of both Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces,” Arraut said.
“So starting the 18th of February, closer to this date, we’re going to be experiencing a big peak. And it’s not going to be until the end of April when we see this energy soothing a little bit more,” Arraut said. “But something very beautiful that the Piscean energy is bringing is healing. It’s understanding your wounds, understanding what hurts, or what has hurt you in the past, and finding a guide, a path toward healing toward understanding and having big compassion for you, for your evolution, for everyone around you, for those who hurt you. It’s feeling your heart with such a high vibration that you can experience love, second chances, second opportunities. It’s sort of like coming back to life, because you have a second chance at love, life, and work because you reach another state of consciousness, and that is the most beautiful way to put this energy. So, try to stay on the positive side of Pisces.”
How do we stay on the positive side of Pisces and experience this healing power?
“This conjunction wants to make humanity aware that there’s a world under the sea, there’s a world of consciousness under the sea. Under the sea means also our inner waters, our inner emotions, and it’s a way of humanity seeing how waters are so important in our life. It’s going to be a very sensitive few months for sure. So the way to handle this is expressing, chanting, singing, connecting with the Pisces energy in a much more conscious, a lot more beautiful way, its higher state, because Pisces is the energy of the highest form of creativity, the highest and most beautiful state of love. So, there’s going to be a lot of love in the atmosphere if you vibe with that aspect or higher state of the Piscean energy,” Arraut said.
As the planets move into conjunction Mercedes also recommends journaling your dreams every morning, getting out into nature, and tapping into your Piscean creative energy.
The Astrological Implications of This Week's Rare Planetary Alignment
A rare planetary alignment is occurring over the next few weeks. Read on to learn how you can see it, what it means for you energetically, and how you should prepare.
Since the end of March, Venus, Mars, and Saturn have appeared to group together. But starting April 17, Jupiter will appear forming a row of planets in a line. It will be most visible in the predawn sky of April 20.
That is the astronomy of this celestial event, but what about the astrological implications?
“These last two weeks of April, we have something very special going on,“ astrologer Mercedes Arnus Arraut said, “I know that astronomically we can see Saturn, we can see the moon, we’re going to be able to see Mars, Venus, Neptune, and Jupiter aligned. But what we should really be focusing our attention on, at least astrologically, is Venus in Pisces going through Jupiter and Neptune — and Mars is going to be doing the same around a week later.”
How does the energy of each individual planet come together in this alignment?
“So to understand this we need to understand that Venus is the planet of relationships, love, value, money, self-worth. Mars has to do with our energy and drive, it’s an energy activator and it’s aligning with Jupiter too, which is expansion, exaggeration. Neptune has to do with spirit, aether, loss, and dissolution of veils,” she said.
