This Rare Cosmic Alignment Happens Once a Decade
Mars and Jupiter in conjunction in Aries. How you can take advantage of the energy produced by this meeting of planets.
On May 29 Mars and Jupiter will be in conjunction where they will appear to be close to each other when observed from Earth, and they will both be in Aries, something we have not seen since April of 2011. What will the conjunction of these strong planets in Aries mean to us?
“To understand this conjunction at a personal level, we need to understand that Mars is our drive, and Jupiter expands everything that it touches. These two planets are aligning in the constellation of Aries. What is Aries? Aries is the energy of birth, it’s the energy of beginnings, it’s where the fire starts,” said astrologer Mercedes Arnus Arraut.
“It’s the energy that gets us going — that gets us moving. By Mars being in Aries, it’s the warrior entering onto the battlefield,” she said. “So, we can be feeling very feisty, we can be feeling a lot of energy, especially because Jupiter is going to highlight all that warrior energy. So, when Jupiter touches Mars all our fire is highlighted; we feel a very strong drive; we feel like our energy is on fire, and it’s very beautiful because 2022 has been a year, so far, that has been very sensitive. “
“We felt very emotional, especially since the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction, and now by Mars aligning with Jupiter in Aries, it’s the energy of brand new beginnings. It’s the push that we needed to leave behind all those waters — all those Piscean waters — and now we’re headed toward building and creating a new life because we have all that fire within us and all the cosmic energy guiding us toward starting something new.”
This conjunction in Aries starts on May 29, but we may start to feel it sooner than that. How can we use the energy?
“So, we’re going to start feeling this energy one week before, and it’s important that to prepare for this energy we try to calm ourselves down, we try to have a little compassion with others, but we use it to go after what we’ve wanted for such a long time, but we were a little shy to do it, or we lacked the confidence, or we lacked the strength,” Arraut said. “So, use it wisely to go after your wildest dreams, use it wisely to do everything that excites you in your life, in that you didn’t feel confident enough to go after.”
What can those of us who are apprehensive about taking the next step into the unknown do at this time?
“I really suggest you take advantage of this transit to start a new life create a new project, give birth to something new, do all these things that you were afraid to do before, or those things that you were like ‘I’m waiting for the right time to do this,’ because this is the time to launch, this is the time to use all this fire, all this force, all this strength, to give an impulse to whatever area in your life that you want to,” Arraut said.
Although the conjunction begins on May 29 and you may feel it about a week before, Arraut says the energy will last for about a month after the conjunction. So get your ducks in a row and get ready to take that cosmic leap into your next phase of life.
Don't Miss This Rare Solstice Planetary Alignment
Today marks a full planetary parade, a Cancer solstice, and the perfect time for you to expand your potential.
Here’s how you can prepare to get the most out of this rare phenomenon on June 21st the Northern Hemisphere will see the most light while the Southern Hemisphere will be at its darkest.
If we look through a telescope that night, we’ll be able to see all the planets of our solar system lining up with the Moon in between Mars and Jupiter. But starting June 24th, the Moon will be in the constellation of Taurus between Mars and Venus and will be the most beautiful day to look at the sky.
How will this celestial event impact our lives? Astrologer Mercedes Arnus Arraut weighs in on the event.
“So equinox and solstices divide the zodiac wheel into four points, which are the zero degrees of Aires, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn,” Arraut said. “When the Sun enters any of these four constellations, we have an equinox or solstice, bringing in a new season. That’s why these four zodiac signs are called cardinal signs; it’s cardinal energy bringing something new and activating areas in our life that needed action. In this case, the constellation that we’re talking about is Cancer — the energy of home. Cancer season starts on June 21st and talks about homes, safety, family, stability, protection, nurture, and what’s familiar to us — it’s our emotions. So in the upcoming three months, we can experience a renewal of all these matters, since Cancer solstice this year takes place under very dynamic energy.”
