Jupiter, the planet of expansion and philosophy, is in Uttara Bhadrapada pada two, from May 15th 2022.
Uttara is associated with benevolence and renunciation, and its symbol is the back legs of a bed, or twins – or perhaps a person facing both ways. Pada two of this asterism relates to Virgo in the relationship and spirituality Navamsha chart, ruled by Mercury, which adds a discriminating and intellectual side to Jupiter’s broad ranging vision.
With Jupiter strong by sign in Pisces, you have reserves of inner faith and mystical potential, but in this pada you can also nail down the details. There is a definite balance to strike here, where you can be trusting and free-floating, but also see beyond simple daily routine.
The underlying Mercury side of this transit gives you promise to sell and communicate clearly, where you paint a picture that people wish to buy into. The Shakti, or special gift of this nakshatra is to Bringing the Cosmic Rain, which shows Jupiter showering good fortune and enriching everything you touch, and you being an effective negotiator.
Inspire people with your visionary quality and have facts at your fingertips to back up your claims. Uttara Bhadrapada itself is liberal, well-educated, and known for clear speech and sharing knowledge, qualities which suit Jupiter’s love of knowledge.
This nakshatra is ruled by Ahirbudhnya, the serpent of the depths, and Jupiter reinvigorates any area of your chart it touches with a sense of new possibility. Ahirbudhnya is also associated with the kundalini energy at the base of the spine, and between Jupiter and Mercury, you also have an excellent intellectual understanding of the yogic path.
The Virgo side of this placement may also have you researching your experiences and writing up in a clear and precise way for others to follow.
