Why A “Selfish” Gamble Could Pay Off During the Jupiter in Aries Transit 2023

Galactic gamblerJupiter returns to Aries on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, for its second trip through the pioneering fire sign. What does the Jupiter in Aries transit mean for you? And for the world?

Wise, wild Jupiter is the galactic gambler, the global nomad and the eternal seeker. We all feel the effects of the Jupiter in Aries transit, as this planet travels through the zodiac signs.

What are the Jupiter in Aries dates?

We experienced Jupiter’s first trek through Aries from May 10 to October 28, 2022.

Beginning December 23, Jupiter returns to the Ram’s realm, moving through Aries until May 16, 2023.

After that, Jupiter will not return to this sign until 2034!

What does it mean when Jupiter is in Aries?

Calling all thrillseekers! Since Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, everything novel, original and daring is en vogue during a Jupiter in Aries transit. As the very first sign of the zodiac, Aries is self-focused. (Yes, we’re saying that nicely.) Some might even call this sign “selfish” upon occasion—but try not to judge!

Aries teaches us the importance of mining the gold that is buried inside us all. And if that means screening out every other human for a day or three, so be it. Between now and May 16, indulge in periodic bouts of self-authorized self-obsession. Because you ARE that awesome. Just ask Jupiter!

This five-month cycle really is all about pushing the envelope. The question is: How far should you take it? That’s where things can get challenging. (More on that in a minute.)

First and foremost, Jupiter is Aries is a time to be pioneering!

Although Jupiter is the planet of good fortune, we believe in the expression that “luck is where preparation meets opportunity.” Aries is one of the most confident, fearless signs. So if you want to be more than a flash in the pan, do NOT rest on your laurels during this transit. Tap into the elevated, courageous vibes and push yourself out of your comfort zone.

Warning: Jupiter transits can get messy.

The fastest spinning planet in the solar system, developments happen rapidly in this powerhouse Jupiter’s path! Its job is to push us out into uncharted territory—even if that means leaping before you look. The point is that you jump, as far as Jupiter’s concerned.

But here’s the thing: Jupiter can also make you WAY overconfident—and you can triple that red flag when Jupiter’s in Aries. If there were ever a time to read the safety precautions, strap on the helmet and at least read the rules before you break them, this would be the time.

What kind of energy does Aries have?

Aries is the sign of the warrior and Jupiter amplifies whatever energy it touches. In this fierce and trailblazing sign, Jupiter riles up everyone’s combative, “me first” energy. Egos get supersized. Narcissists act out. Nepo babies get record deals and randos develop messiah complexes. But incredible leaders also emerge as the smoke of this fire sign’s blaze begins to clear.

With each clumsy dismount we figure out how to do it better next time. It’s all about failing faster and then getting up to try, try again.

What energy does Jupiter represent?

Regardless of which zodiac sign Jupiter is orbiting through at any given time, there are bound to be exciting developments. Higher learning and philosophy fall under its reign. Here’s where we collectively expand and elevate to the next level of human development.

But how much is too much? Like a giant cosmic spotlight, Jupiter exposes flaws in the machinery and might even reveal a scandal. Issues of global importance are also spotlighted under Jupiter’s watch and often dominate the news headlines when Jupiter has a moment.

Historically, Jupiter in Aries transits have been marked by friction.

World War I and II both started during Jupiter in Aries transits. This round has been filled with plenty of global unrest, mainly centered in Ukraine but happening around the world. As combative Aries knows, sometimes, you have to fight in the name of your human rights. Historic developments for the women of Iran began while Jupiter was in Aries in 2022, as women took to the streets and removed their hijabs in protest of restrictive laws.

Here’s hoping that the wisdom of Jupiter will help temper any irrational flames that can be fanned by Aries energy.

While Jupiter blazes through hotheaded Aries until May 16, make sure the cause you’re fighting for is grounded in facts. In some cases, what looks like a revolution might simply be a distraction that leads you further afield. Angry, disenfranchised masses may be easily manipulated by narcissistic extremists who are preying on their emotions. Practice self- defense, an Aries protective measure, by always thinking for yourself.

Anything that soothes the psyche is worth trying when Jupiter’s blazing a fiery trail through Aries. Transcendental Meditation, which originated in India in the mid-1950s with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, gained mass popularity while Jupiter was in Aries in 1975-76.

If there’s friction in your household or among the people you gather with regularly, do your part to deescalate the drama. Prevention is even smarter: How can you dial down stress in your environment? Skilled mediators and counselors can help restore peace when no one is willing to declare a ceasefire.

If you must be a warrior, how about being a “love warrior,” appropriately the title of Aries Glennon Doyle’s book. Or a “freedom fighter” who doesn’t need to take up arms, unless you’re (safely) encircling someone in a hug?

Is Jupiter in Aries lucky?

The Jupiter in Aries transit coincides with a Sun-Jupiter conjunction in Aries on April 11. This day is also referred to by astrologers as the “Day of Miracles.” It is considered a lucky day, indeed!

Because both celestial bodies beam with such bright promise, our optimism alone can attract abundance! In 2023, they meet up in fierce, fiery, trailblazing Aries, supercharging inititives.

How to benefit?

Got a new initiative to launch? A fresh idea to debut? This could be a rich moment to put yourself out there. No matter what your sign is, lean into some of that Aries entitlement. Hey, this sign knows they deserve the best. And if you believe you do, too, this could be the day that you manifest it!

What’s next for Jupiter in 2023, after the Jupiter in Aries transit?

Jupiter heads into Taurus on May 16, 2023. Despite entering the sign of the Bull, it’s expected to cool its jets (and hopefully its jetfighters).

This cautiously optimistic cycle, which lasts until May 25, 2024, calls for measured, sustainable growth and longevity. Taurus is also known to be slow and steadfast.

What it means when the Jupiter in Aries transit resumes on December 20

In this Article

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You’re back in the zone, Aries! Auspicious and abundant Jupiter leaves your introspective twelfth house (Pisces) on December 20, 2022, and dances back into your sign until May 16, 2023.

This is the second of two fortuitous cycles that increase your vitality, optimism and self-confidence. Although hosting Jupiter is sure to increase your luck, don’t wait for the bounty to roll in. This proactive transit urges you to take bold risks.

There will be plenty of opportunities to reinvent your life, but you need to find them and pounce. Doors that opened during Jupiter’s first pass through Aries—May 10 to October 28, 2022—could welcome you in again. If you’re not sure where to begin, start there!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Rest those social butterfly wings and come in for a landing. On December 20, 2022, supersizer Jupiter downshifts into Aries, taking its second of two, long celestial sabbaticals in your twelfth house of introspection, endings and transitions until May 16, 2023.

This is the perfect timeout to reflect on what you’ve accomplished over the past year. Use the next five months to gently release what’s no longer working from your life. As you do, you’ll make room for the incredible new developments that are headed your way when Jupiter heads into Taurus from May 16, 2023 to May 25, 2024.

GEMINI (May 2-June 20)

As abundant Jupiter sailed through Pisces and your career zone, you probably had some tremendous epiphanies about the work you want to do in the world. Starting December 20, 2022, you’ll build on that as expansive Jupiter rockets back into Aries, weaving into your eleventh house of teamwork and technology until May 16.

This is the second of two passes that the red-spotted titan makes through Aries. (The first was from May 10 to October 28, 2022.) Now your wiser self can pick up the reins and keep building a powerful team. Technology, activism and mindfulness could be part of your expansion plans, so get geeky, Twin.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Career goals could take off at quite a clip today, so buckle up! For the second of two transits, abundant Jupiter jolts into Aries, weaving into your professional tenth house until May 16, 2023.

During the coming five months, you’ll have a powerful flow of opportunities that can launch you into a new level of success. You learned A LOT while Jupiter first trekked through Aries from May 10 to October 28, 2022.

Now, devote yourself to taking advantage of Jupiter’s enthusiasm and lucky vibes to turn those teachable moments into a tangible (and profitable!) reality.

LEO (July 23-August 22)

Calling all Leo visionaries! As limitless Jupiter blazes into Aries and your ninth house of travel, adventure and higher education, widen your viewfinder and set your sights on more exciting vistas.

What are some of your biggest dreams—the ones you keep deferring on the assumption that you’ll get around to them “someday?” Jupiter’s message is loud and clear: Someday is on the docket for sometime between December 2022 and May 16, 2023!

Pro tip: Review your calendar. What were you doing from May 10 to October 28, 2022? Jupiter was making its first of two passes through Aries then. An unfinished adventure from that time period could resume starting December 20, 2022!

VIRGO (August 23-September 22)

Your soulful side comes shining through as larger-than-life Jupiter blasts into Aries for the second of two laps, slinking into your depth-plumbing eighth house until May 16, 2023.

Superficial subjects will hold no interest as you swan-dive into metaphysics, soul-stirring connections and mergers. Rather, you’re seeking answers to life’s Big Questions—and oh, the places you’ll go to find those truths!

When it comes to relationships, you’re ready to try on “secure attachment” as a status. When Jupiter lunges into no-nonsense Taurus in five months, you’ll know who can hang in the Virgo vault and who is unfit to roll with your unbridled new self.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22)

Partnerships are on your mind, Libra, and there’s no getting around it! December 20, 2022, is a huge day for your sign as expansive and auspicious Jupiter blasts into Aries for the second of two rounds, powering up your seventh house of dynamic duos for five months.

The larger-than-life planet blessed this part of your chart already in 2022 (from May 10 to October 28). And things could get very exciting very fast during its sequel, between now and May 16, 2023.

Single? This might be your moment to change that status—or enjoy the heck out of it! Attached? Try something experimental together or, if you’re ready, make your merger official.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)

Ready to roll your sleeves up and get down to brass tacks? Good plan! Larger-than-life Jupiter lunges back into Aries for the second of two passes, giving love to your sixth house of work and wellness until May 16, 2023.

Even in the midst of the holidays, you may feel eager to get your health, fitness and work routines back in a steady groove. Rather than diving in headfirst, use the first couple weeks of the Jupiter in Aries transit for “strategic dreaming.”

What support would make your job easier—and leave you time to work out a few days a week (at the gym with the infrared sauna)? Get the vision in your crosshairs and plan to implement right after NYE!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)

Ready to switch up your floor plan? Your humble homestead could soon become a buzzing creative studio as abundant Jupiter swings back into Aries for the second of its two laps.

With the larger-than-life planet activating your fifth house of fame and self-expression until May 16, 2023, you won’t be shy about sharing your talents.

Maybe it’s time to order a proper light kit, mic and backdrop to unleash your live-streaming potential! In love, you’ll need a longer leash and a lot more excitement. Plan more dress-up dates and make a point of getting out of the house a lot more often—in the most flamboyant maxi-coat you can find!

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19)

Condo, coop or cruiser van? Your vision of home could shift dramatically as limitless Jupiter swings back into Aries for the second of two transits.

One thing’s for sure: As the red-spotted titan puts down roots in your fourth house of domesticity until May 16, 2023, things are going be buzzing under your roof! What home-based goals have you back-burnered—or recently rediscovered? (Perhaps during Jupiter’s first pass through Aries, from May 10 to October 28, 2022.)

Dream it and make those power moves over the next five months! When it comes to personal relationships, opt for quality over quantity and nurture the bonds of your inner circle.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)

Your gregarious sign has a way with words—and starting December 20, 2022, you’ll want (make that NEED) a bigger platform for sharing your message!

Unfiltered Jupiter swings back into Aries for a sequel tour, revving up your third house of communication until May 16, 2023. You already got a taste of this candid cycle from May 10 to October 28, 2022. Now, you can put your money where your mouth is.

This is one of the best possible Jupiter transits for Water Bearers who work in sales, marketing and the media. Partner up with pros or hire a consultant to help you polish your visual and verbal style and create dazzling new marketing materials.

PISCES (February 19-March 20)

Get ready to walk your talk, Pisces…and maybe even monetize your message while you’re at it. On December 20, 2022, you wave farewell to larger-than-life Jupiter, who’s been weaving in and out of your sign since May 13, 2021. Take stock of all the growth and life-changing lessons you’ve enjoyed (and sometimes endured) since then.

While you may have overshot the mark at times, you also expanded your horizons—and in turn, your sense of deserving. With the abundant planet trekking through Aries and your money zone until May 16, it’s time to create a true sense of security for yourself. Are you ready to (re)fill your coffers? Over the coming five months, you could experience a major uptick in your earnings—also in your self-confidence!

Where will your sign be lucky in 2023?
