Astrology is so complex that it’s hard to predict exactly what kind of year is ahead, as the planets shift signs and form different aspects so often throughout the year. However, the main transit of 2022 is the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction and it’s going to bring us all closer to a higher power. Express.co.uk chatted to astrologer Francesca Oddie and consulted other mystical experts to find out how the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction will affect us this year.
The transit that’s dominating this year is the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction, which starts on April 12.
This only happens every 12 and a half years, so it’s a big deal.
Jupiter is in Pisces, the dreamy and artsy sign of the zodiac ruled by both Jupiter and Neptune.
On top of that, Jupiter is known for expanding while Neptune dissolves and breaks down anything structured, so this is a wild combination.
According to astrologer Francesca Oddie, people are going to be more spiritual and seek connection this year.
She said: “Some people will find that through letting their hair down and indulging in things like alcohol and anything that lets them drop their inhibitions.
“This year we will be more creative, more emotional, more loving, but this will come through escapism sometimes.”
The conjunction is in wishy-washy Pisces, so we may need a reality check in order to keep our expectations realistic.
Cafe Astrology warned: “Caution should be exercised with legal matters, finances, and otherworldly, practical affairs, as the tendency to ignore critical details or to take foolish risks runs high.
“However, if expectations are kept in check, this can be a fabulous time for dreaming up new possibilities.
“It’s also a period of greater compassion–when our guiding principle is to trust in people or the universe.
“Some associations with this combination include dancing, water (especially the ocean), oil, the feet, alcohol, mysteries and illusion, film, cinematography, and religion.”
However, Astrology.com warned that it would be a “bad idea to add mind-altering substances, like drugs or alcohol, indiscriminately into the mix”.
The site added: “It would be hard to figure out what’s a genuine experience of your soul and what’s completely delusional, especially at the risk of excess.
“You will need your senses to be alert, not only to properly receive what your inner sight reveals but also to retain and act on what you behold.”
