Break out the bubbles and hang the blinky lights, everybody! Arguably the most exciting and trippy astrological event of the year is climaxing on Tuesday, April 12. Jupiter, the big papa of abundance, and Neptune, the dreamy dissolver of boundaries, are coming together in the sign of Pisces, which is the home hot tub for both of these party planets. These two only conjoin every 13 or so years, so this is a momentous cosmic occasion. We can all expect some giant waves of spiritual wonder, but let’s not get pulled under by the deceptive undertow.
Here are your horoscopes for the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction. Read for your rising and sun signs.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Keep your wits about you, Aries, because you are on a Wonderland-esque journey deep inside your inner looking glass. Keep following the white rabbit of your conscience because the only way out is through, and the only way through is to get really honest about how you are participating in your own life. Are you paying attention to your actions or are you operating thoughtlessly? Dig deep. Admit what you’ve been avoiding. Celebrate the process.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Who are your comrades? I mean the people who bring you joy and share your values and support your most important endeavors. You know, your chosen fam. Try to see these people as your spirit guides in human costumes and open yourself up to the deep wisdom they have to share. Only, be sure to pick the right ones, because there are some wolves in human clothing out there. No selfish asshats in your clan!
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Your career might just be a job, but it also has the possibility of being your vocation. You are here for a public purpose, Gemini, and the planets are aligning to infuse you with the inspiration to pursue your raison d’être, or why the eff you are here in this lifetime? It’s kind of a big deal. The world is thirsty for your gifts and parched for your leadership.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Pilgrimage is the word that comes to mind for you – a journey that takes you away from your routine and brings you back to your existential or spiritual center. Jupiter and Neptune are inviting you up to the heights of divine inspiration, but you gotta move yourself to get to the peak. Be mindful about journeying too far beyond societal bounds though, because legalities can still getcha.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
We are always performing rituals with each other: mindlessly asking someone “How are you?” without really caring, participating in organized religious ceremonies, or hitting your shot glass on the bar before taking it. The rituals you choose determine the world that shows up for you, and now is an ideal time to focus on your regular rituals. Accept the inheritances of the rituals you choose and pay the debts of the rituals you release, because changing your rituals changes your allegiances.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
You are swimming in the deep waters of relationship, whether that is with a romantic partner, business partner or general life partner. You have great potential to dive into love, Virgo; just be sure not to merge too much with the other because co-dependency doesn’t do anybody good. Let your partner inspire you and keep in mind that you are on your own journey, too.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 23)
A crisis is not always a bad thing, Libra, although it might be hard to see that while in the midst of it. Many times, growth and change feel like catastrophe until we get to the other side and realize we were just shedding a heavy, old part of ourselves. You are going through a soft struggle, one that takes effort but is also easing you into a new groove. Think of this time as learning new dance steps, and appreciate your fumbling feet.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 – Nov. 21)
Joy and babies, joy and babies! Neptune and Jupiter are spinning their magic in your house of pleasure and children, so it is a great time to mingle if progeny is your desire. On the other hand, if an actual human baby is nowhere on the horizon, it is timely to unleash the child of your creativity on the world or to get pregnant with creative passion. Find awe in your originality.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Home is where the hallucinatory Kool-aid party is, or something like that. Your home and family are offering you real insights into the great mysteries of the universe. On that note, there is great healing harmony within the confines of your home space, perhaps even in taking a trip down memory lane to your childhood experiences. Soak up the acceptance, but don’t fall prey to magical thinking – difficulties are part of the great mysteries, too.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
You have an incredible opportunity to communicate your creative imagination to those around you, Capricorn. We would love to hear what you have to say. Just share it with us like we are your siblings or cousins, without the anxiety of having to be perfect. Seek the mystical in the mundane or find William Blake’s “Heaven in a Wild Flower” in the coming weeks and report back.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Buyer beware! Don’t dive into any major purchases that may seem too good to be true right now, Aquarius, but be sure to keep yourself open to some new revenue streams. You may very well be open to deceptive salesmen if you are looking for the next best thing. Turn away from the lemons, but keep your senses keen for financial lemonade.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Your body is a temple, and your temple is getting an exorbitant restoration. Are you feeling rejuvenated, maybe even a little manic? Harness this energy to remember who you are and to be the healthiest version of yourself possible, in mind, soul, and body. Level up, but for everyone else’s benefit, stay humble. Your health is about more than a delusional ego.
