The New Year New Moon — December 29 2021— January 5 2022

Jupiter transits into Pisces from fixed-air (Aquarius) to mutable-water (Pisces) this week. Except for a ten-week sojourn into Pisces (May-July 2021), Jupiter was domicile in Aquarius for all of 2021.  This raised our level of social awareness. Now in Pisces, awareness of the need for repair work on all levels become acute. We can become motivated to address the suffering of others. We can become better citizens of the world. Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius, the universal mutable fire sign. Jupiter will gather up resources, while Neptune, the ruler of Pisces disperses. Neptune now moving in apparent forward direction, is also in Pisces until April of 2025, while Jupiter moves on into Aries in the final days of 2022.  Jupiter moves ahead into Aries in May-Oct 2022, and makes a conjunction aspect with Neptune in April 2022, perhaps a forewarning of things to come in yet another year, 2023. On January 2nd, a New Moon in Capricorn helps to celebrate, as the stellium in the cardinal earth sign continues this week. Mercury leaves the stellium and ingress into Aquarius on the 2nd of January at the New Moon.
