This fall has been rough cosmically, but Jupiter direct, 2022's prosperous and delightful transit, is changing the narrative. 

After a hectic eclipse season that ended with the turbulent November 2022 full moon, we are more than ready for the planet of luck, growth and expansion to do its thing. Can we get a "Hear, hear!"

On November 23, the four-month-long Jupiter retrograde will come to an end. Though the "r" word seems synonymous with "chaos," Jupiter is a fairly easy planet to work with. Its retrograde allows us to dive right into our passions, especially since it'll be direct in a water sign in late 2022.

"Jupiter direct in Pisces teaches you the importance of inner connection, self-care, pleasure and the power of a positive mindset," says Ivana Naskova, an astrologer for Nebula. "Under this influence, you get inspired and driven to work on your creative pursuits."

She adds, "Jupiter is a planet of growth, expansion, and of course, luck. During its retrograde phase, the effect of this planet is far from opposing or challenging. Instead, we have the opportunity to reflect on our goals and objectives and a chance to prepare to make the most of the planet once it stations direct again."

Yes, Mars retrograde might be making us feel a little sluggish, but Jupiter's influence will cause us to expand our horizons through travel, exploration and a deep dive into spiritual value and worth. Consider this November astrology event a gift from the universe.

Jupiter direct 2022—what you need to know

When Jupiter goes direct on the 23rd, it will remain that way for four months. Throughout this time, you'll want to soak up everything it brings to the celestial table. 

"Once Jupiter is direct, you are ready to take action and use the windfall of good luck to push the boundaries and overcome obstacles on the path," Naskova adds. "Being a highly spiritual planet in emotional Pisces, Jupiter direct shifts back the focus from the material to the spiritual value and worth."

Jupiter direct in Pisces: important dates

According to Naskova, you'll want to mark your calendar for a variety of important transits. When Jupiter is in opposition to the sun on December 22, we'll be feeling incredibly optimistic, but don't let those good vibes overwhelm you. You don't want to have too much to juggle. 

"Be careful, as, under this transit, you tend to make promises you might not be able to keep up since you may already have too much on your plate," she advises.

There are a few other dates that aren't necessarily daunting, but you'll want to be aware of. Jupiter's square with Mercury on December 6 might make communication a little tense, so don't overthink. 

"Jupiter forms a Square with Venus and the Moon, which can cause emotional turbulence and an inability to express your emotions forwardly. In addition, you could be more emotional and feel an increased need for affection, care, and comfort," Naskova adds.

Then, three days later, Jupiter will form a square with Venus and the moon, which might cause heightened emotional states. Sure there are going to be a few hiccups along the way, but overall, Jupiter's travels are something to celebrate.

Jupiter direct and the zodiac signs

So what's going on with the astrology signs? How will Jupiter affect everyone? Naskova was kind enough to do some research for us. 


Expect work or personal travel-related opportunities to come your way, Aries. Use this as a reason to get in tune with yourself. 

"Some of them will be work-related, while the rest will provide you with new experiences and help you get to know yourself better," Naskova says. 


Your social circle is growing, Taurus, and it's an excellent time to learn something valuable from others.


Now might be the time to spruce up that LinkedIn profile, dear Gemini. 

"Jupiter in your house of career is ready to give you the push you need to reach your goals," Naskova says. "Now would be the ideal time to change your job if that is what you aim for."


Things will start falling into place for you Cancer, regardless of what area of your life you are focusing on. 

"In addition, if you have been considering investing, this transit gives you the green light," Naskova adds.


Things might've been a little hectic for you over the past few weeks, Leo, but Jupiter is swooping in to help you out. 

"Jupiter direct is giving you support from many sources, helping you overcome the obstacles on your path," Naskova says.
