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.
What Astrological Element Am I? The Meaning and Signs of All Four Elements
In western astrology, the universe is formed by the four elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. These are the outward manifestations of the true elements. Each of the four elements contains its own unique properties, which work simultaneously to create one united universe. None of the elements are inherently good or bad, however, each has both positive and negative qualities.
Whether you’re loud or quiet, timid, outgoing, impetuous, or logical, your personality is filled with complexity. It can be difficult to self-evaluate to gain insight into our base emotions and desires. That’s why finding your element can help. As you read over the qualities associated with each of the four elements of nature, you might have your “aha!” moment, or you might feel as though you don’t relate to certain aspects.
This variation is because every person is an utterly unique combination of elements. By finding your dominant element, you’ll be able to better appreciate your own strengths and weaknesses. This understanding will help you to build better, stronger relationships with those around you. Let your element be a guide to a more intuitive self.
