Mars-Jupiter Conjunction May 29, 2022
Mars conjuncts Jupiter 03°19’ Aries on May 29th. This conjunction is taking place just before the New Moon in Gemini on the 30th, perhaps a pre-echo of the 7-month journey Mars will take in Gemini beginning in late August. Jupiter is continuing to move away from Neptune in Pisces, which was a big part of that month’s theme. It will be a beautiful early-morning conjunction to behold in the sky in the parade of planets at that time of day.
The last time Mars and Jupiter got together, they were joined by Pluto and Saturn and it was in March, 2020 at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. This pair gets together about every two years and Mars can bring decisive action into any environment it enters into. Mars entered Aries on the 24th and this is a natural/resonate sign for Mars, which symbolizes the masculine principle archetype.
In the larger Mars cycle, this is considered Phase 5 of a 26-month long cycle and the last phase before an incubation of the Gemini archetype in late August, setting up a big transit there.
Aries is an archetype that was traditionally seen as the “warrior”, an instinctual, willful and ruggedly independent in any person. Aries is a defender of the cause, mission and purpose and is “all-in” to the mission. In this combination of Mars and Jupiter, the Aries archetypal expression is expanded, amplified and taken to a new level. It can help with opportunities to really “move the energy” in life and get things accomplished. But at the same time, this could increase a counterweight against the moving energy.
Reading this, if you were born with any personal points/planets in the early degrees of Aries, you are in a Jupiter initiation (transit/cycle) and Mars is one of the highlights of this initiation. Mars, as a strong activator itself, could add more power and restlessness in the initiation as well as out in humanity in general.
Humanity has been experiencing a rapid shift in the Turning of an Age and the masculine is no exception to this. As the masculine consciousness evolves (within all of us), there is also the resistance and attachment to what was once thought as “normal” in the world, especially with violence. This is an opportunity to see a healthier and more mature Aries masculine show up, one that works constructively and is helpful in support of humanity and the Earth, rather than as a destroyer.
