Jupiter, the planet of protection and philosophy, is in Uttara Bhadrapada pada one, from April 28th 2022.
This nakshatra within the zodiacal sign of Pisces is associated with benevolence and renunciation, and its symbol is the back legs of a bed, or twins – or perhaps a two-faced person. Pada One of Uttara relates to Leo in the relationship and good-fortune Navamsha chart, ruled by the Sun, which gives a rather grandiose and soul-centred quality to Jupiter’s expansive nature.
You seek to do things on a large scale and your inner confidence helps win people around who may work alongside you. Leo’s underlying energy also gives you spiritual pride, and you have ego wrapped up in your ideas and achievements.
This quality can be inspiring, but try not to make everything about you and leave room for other people’s ideas and achievements. Uttara Bhadrapada itself is broadminded well-educated, and known for the gift of oratory, qualities which suit Jupiter’s love of knowledge.
This nakshatra is ruled by Ahirbudhnya, the serpent of the depths, which suggests immersion in yoga or psychology, and you may wish to draw attention to your practice and its excellent effects.
Ahirbudhnya is also associated with the coiled kundalini energy at the base of the spine, and withdrawing into solitude for yoga and meditation is favoured, where Jupiter gives your experience a philosophic underpinning.
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, especially while in its own sign of Pisces.
Jupiter is hemmed by the fiery influences of the Sun and Mars during this transit, which may give you an impulsive quality, a bit of a temper, and perhaps some resistance to your expansive vision.
Take things one thing at a time, and make sure you have a sound plan for each new step.
