Below are all the dates Jupiter was in Pisces since 1879, with a summary of its major aspects during each period, and various seemingly relevant events extracted from Wikipedia.
Jupiter enters Pisces on January 18th, from where it will form an opposition with Saturn in May, and a conjunction with Uranus in September. Jupiter last conjoined Uranus in Pisces nearly 700 years ago in 1334.
The main pattern I notice below is that electric light, the essential pre-requisite for the development of TV and films, was developed with Jupiter in Pisces (opposite Uranus), and this placement always seems to bring developments in TV and film, big movies etc. Films are usually attributed to Pisces, and “light” in all its forms seems appropriate in this spiritual sign too.
The other thing that stands out is the way the events strongly reflect the outer planet aspects Jupiter was making while in Pisces; Jupiter always makes anything it aspects “bigger,” but this also illustrates how planets in Pisces, even Jupiter its traditional ruler, absorb and take on the colour of anything that touches them, perhaps more than expressing their own character.
I’ll leave it at that, I’m sure you can all see the patterns; would be interested to hear what you notice.
