Jupiter is in pada three of Purva Bhadrapada from March 30th to April 13th 2022, in the Aquarius portion of this nakshatra.
Purva Bhadrapada is an intense asterism with a link to burning and cleansing, and its Shakti, or special gift, of ‘The Power of Spiritual Fire’ gives you the promise of purifying old knowledge. These themes fit well with Jupiter’s wisdom-loving nature and let you expand your understanding to a completely new level.
Pada Three relates to Gemini navamsha, the relationship and good fortune sub-chart, so you have a combination of Aquarian ideals and Mercury-ruled curiosity. You gather scraps of information to put together your grand idea about how the world works – though Purva may see you scrapping and burning the old before moving into new territory.
There is a big focus on teaching and studying, either formally or doing your own research, and you have both Jupiter’s big vision and Mercury’s eye for fine detail. Jupiter is also wealth-karaka, so education and intelligence are tools you can use to build up a business and security.
Knowledge is at a premium, and though you love learning for its own sake, look into the potential for investment and a pay-out for your expertise. Purva’s deity is Ajaikapada, a form of Rudra, the Storm God, which shows the harsher and more stressful side of this nakshatra.
Gemini qualities give you mental clarity and detachment in a crisis, where you do not become too overwhelmed by the purging fire-storm. The latter half of this transit, from April 7th, puts more focus on your relationships, and you may be creating a Jupiter-like philosophy of love.
You bond over a sense of humour and shared taste for a favourite subject, and allowing somebody space and freedom sees you being given the same in return.
