Jupiter Retrograde

Jupiter Retrograde – Find Your Gifts!


Jupiter Retrograde – Find Your Gifts!

For All Zodiac Signs


It’s a time to take a step back to review plans and projects as giant Jupiter makes its yearly backward trip into its Retrograde Cycle for the next four months. With Jupiter in Retrograde, it’s a time to re-think goals and plans, especially ones ruled by Jupiter. This is really an opportunity to question ourselves about the things we thought we already knew so we can develop new perspectives or beliefs around what we are planning next for our future.

With Jupiter Retrograde we get a once a year opportunity to go back over certain things and possibly collect the rewards or gifts we missed out on before! Maybe you just weren’t ready yet the first time around, or open to certain possibilities. But now you get another chance to experience a bright prospect that lucky Jupiter can bring.

During this Retrograde phase, you can see just what part of your life you’ve been overdoing it in, or where there’s been excess, greed, or extravagance. You just may need to slow it down a bit, as adventures & projects can be moving along too fast and mistakes get made or things can be misinterpreted. Let things unfold naturally during this time, which can be a bit of a struggle through the 21 of April with it being Aries Season, and again through the first part of June with mental Mercury in Aries, so our minds want to do nothing more than to move forward, fast and quick! But remember taking your time now during this Jupiter Retrograde period can be beneficial in the long run. As certain realities become known and this energy comes in stronger you may start to lose your motivation and enthusiasm.

Making progress might come to a halt as this cosmic turnaround tends to slow us down. This is a cycle of reflection, you should be focused on what gives your life deeper meaning, and what can help you feel more abundant. This isn’t typically a time of difficulty, but when Jupiter gets ready to turn Retrograde (its Shadow Period) it can seriously slow us down, as we adjust to this more intense feeling influence. This actually can cause you to feel a sense of urgency and desire to find something more expansive in your life and to get rid of the things that are restricting you, holding you back, or that are keeping you from happiness and satisfaction.

Starting April 8 through August 11 is a time for cutbacks on the activities that don’t help you reach your goals. The Universe has a way of getting us to take a seat and chill out, this Retrograde phase gives you that opportunity to make sure the plans and projects you’re working on are still what you want and need. It’s a time to rid of any distractions that just waste your time, energy, or money! Don’t focus on what isn’t working or what’s slowing falling away now, rest assured it was probably a waste of your time anyway. Besides whatever doesn’t work out at this time, is probably a gift to you from the Universe, because there was a reason of you understand it or not. Once Jupiter is direct, whatever plans or projects you have been working on will start to come together. We’ve got plenty of time to figure it out.

Most of the time Retrograde planets get a pretty bad rap! But when Jupiter is Retrograde it can actually be a good thing! You just might receive some sort of random good luck in whatever part of your life you are the most focused on at this time. This is a time for second chances and opportunities, and for amazing things start to happen that involve your work, traveling, legalities, real estate, and of course your spiritual growth. Over the next four months, we get a chance to actually make big strides, but only if it’s something you really want and have been working towards. If you try to be tricky and lie or deceive others to get ahead now or take advantage of people, your success will come crumbling down once Jupiter goes direct again in June.

Over the next few months whatever has held you up from growing and evolving on a soul level is where Jupiter’s Retrograde will be more evident. This cosmic turnabout is a time of big surprises and reveals! Many of you are simply repeating a pattern of some sort that you might have done repeatedly lifetimes before, which has been blocking your success and personal happiness. Over the next four months, Jupiter Retro will light up these behaviors or patterns. Old learned behaviors from our past in this life or past lives will be shown to us now. Therefore, this can be quite a revealing time that helps you understand just what part of your life needs help, so you can remove any blocks and achieve greater success and stop unhealthy behaviors once and for all!

Jupiter Retrograde happens every year! It lasts for about four months. It’s a great time to sort out exactly what you truly want from life, and to plan on how you can go get it! By the time Jupiter goes direct, you will see things start to become a reality, and will be able to move closer towards your goals with success, and hopefully some happiness.

Here’s something interesting to look at. If you were born with your Natal Jupiter in Retrograde in your Personal Astrology Birth Chart, it is believed that you might have to achieve what you needed to in a past or former lifetime. So since you didn’t get a chance to complete an important destiny, calling, or lesson you may just be getting to do it all over again during this life and finally fulfill
that destiny.

Over the coming days and weeks ahead make sure to take some “me-time” for yourself. Do some soul-searching about events or situations that be the most pressing over the last few months or so. Think about what new prospects or gifts you can re-discover.

Have an insightful and fulfilling Jupiter in Retrograde,

April Astrology Forecast

April is a busy month, so get ready folks, with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all going into Retrograde phases this month, it’s a time for reassessment around what you are doing in your life. And with four planets in magical Pisces, the focus is more on imagination and illumination than practical matters. This period is wonderful for creativity and spiritual exploration but it’s best to wait until at least April 5th before making decisions that require focus, or a the very least some careful thought and consideration.

Since our plans and projects will be under such an intense review throughout the month of April we must make sure an align our goals with our life’s purpose. It’s also a good time to stop any activities that just are simply holding you back, or aren’t serving you. Quit wasting valuable time and energy. If you take the time to review your goals and plans this month than you’ll probably see progress in the fall when things really take off again. But for now, you have some lessons to get through and hopefully learn from.


April 2nd – Creative Confusion 

Mercury just recently out of its Retrograde cycle (but still in the after Rx Shadow phase through the 16th) makes a powerful connection to Neptune the king of dreams and escape. Mercury rules our mind and how we think, communicate, and perceive information. Neptune rules over things like our imagination, spirituality, and deceptions. This influence can inspire you and others, so you may feel highly creative. This also can help you communicate your dreams to the person you adore. 

But it’s also causing confusion with mental Mercury just in the after-Shadow period of Retrograde, also in Pisces, as well as Neptune. All in all, this energy can make things unclear and foggy. If something sounds too good to be true it probably is. Don’t get ripped off or scammed, deception is in the air right now. Find ways to be inspired, get creative and this fog will finally be lifting for good in a few days.


April 4th – Power Moves 

Powerful Pluto makes an intense connection to the Lunar South Node point both in the sign of Capricorn. Some folks could try to make bold moves to gain power or control during this time. So there may be some pretty wild upheavals. There can be ego battles that can be destructive in one way or another. If you force issues on others without taking responsibility for your own actions it can backfire on you. This is not a good time to just go after things on a whim without seriously taking consideration your consequences. Take some time to evaluate your goals and make plans for your next move, so you can get what it is you really want, but just make sure to not bump heads along the way, or it will only cause you more problems. 


April 5th – New Moon in Aries – New Beginnings

There’s a New Moon in the sign of Aries occurring and whatever you’ve been planning or working on can finally start to get moving. This energy gives us a chance to breathe new life into already existing projects. This is all about “New Beginnings” in a big bold way! As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is all about courage, and it gives us a huge dose of higher confidence and energy to take on our tasks, projects, and goals and make things happen! The Pluto-South Node alignment is also occurring around the same time frame, so this can help us to be more practical, even if we are more daring with new and innovative ideas.  If you already know enough to make an informed decision, it’s important to not be indecisive. Try to be patient and look for more information around the next Full Moon on April 19 that will help you know what to do next. 


April 10 – A Reality Check 

The Sun is making a tense Square formation with taskmaster Saturn. It’s important to know what responsibilities you want to take on and what you don’t, it’s a good time for some assessment of your life. as you will be challenged to rid of the things that you are doing too much of or that might be taking up to much of your time and energy. It’s no longer “go big or go home,” instead your mantra for this time should be, “go small or give in! Create balance around what you want and that is for the greater good of everyone. 


April 10 – Take a Step Back 

Giant Jupiter is going to be making its yearly backward trip as it enters its Retrograde cycle for nearly four months.  Making progress will come to a halt as this cosmic turnaround tends to slow us down. This is a cycle of reflection into what gives your life deeper meaning, and what helps you feel more abundant. This isn’t typically a time of difficulty, but when Jupiter gets ready to turn Retrograde it can seriously slow us down as it’s an influence is more intense feeling. This actually can cause you to feel a sense of urgency and desire to find something more expansive in your life and to get rid of the things that are restricting you, holding you back, or that are keeping you from feeling happy or satisfied. 
Every now and then the Universe has a way of making us take a time out to review our lives, to make sure that our plans and projects are still what we want and need. Through August 11th is a time for cutbacks on the activities that don’t help you reach your goals, and to rid of any distractions that waste your time, energy, and money! Don’t worry about the projects that slowly go to the waste side, as they were a waste of your time anyway, During this cycle whatever plans don’t make the cut will turn out to probably be a blessing in disguise. Once Jupiter is direct, whatever plans or projects you have been working on will start to come together. You got a long time to sort it all out. If you happen to know your Astrology Birth Chart, you can look up just exactly what part of your chart this cycle is cruising through to get more information. 


April 13 – Power Moves 

The Sun is making a tense Square to potent Pluto! With the Sun’s transit through the sign of Aries, most of us are trying to initiate something, but we might have to deal with some powerful energies for a few days. Perhaps a person who has their own agenda or situation might ask you to change something up that throws your original plans out the window! It’s a time to be paying close attention and for being more mindful of other folks needs, besides your own. You can’t always take and take from others and expect something if you are not giving anything back in return. You can also be challenged in some way to make sure you are empowering yourself. Don’t be stubborn and don’t give everything away either. You will know when the time comes what you need to do if you pay attention to your signs and messages from the Universe during this powerful few days. 


April 17 – Quick Thinking 

The planet of communication Mercury will enter into bolder, enterprising Aries that brings amazing new insights and flashes of genius. This can help us take any plans or projects we might have new directions. Just make sure these directions are on a path towards your life’s purpose in some way and not a huge detour. Take this time to connect with other folks who help stimulate your thinking and who are encouraging, as this cycle can help you rid of old behaviors and habits for a better future. Also, keep in mind that Aries is known for being the God of War. It’s not a time to be debating or arguing or you can get caught up in all the negative drama and those great ideas won’t get moving forward. Instead, direct your energy towards achieving goals so you can take full advantage of this transits that will run through May 6th.


April 19 – Full Moon in Libra – Balancing the Chaos

When the Sun in Aries makes a tense but exciting connection to the Moon in Libra a Full Moon will occur. We are just coming out of the New Moon cycle at this point that started on April 5th. This Full Moon cycle is at what’s called the critical degree or anaretic degree, this means completion and marks the end of one cycle and the evolution into another. This Full Moon in Libra, the sign of balance and integration, encourages us to find ways to leave behind anything that is standing in our way of finding balance. Something might have to come to an end in order for us to find peace and harmony. This is also a time of culmination as you get a chance to take a step back and see if you are doing right by others and if you are paying attention to the folks in your life and their needs and desires. It’s all about being fair as our sense of justice is stronger than usual, put your focus on strengthening the bonds in your current relationships. Even though the Full Moon is always a time of endings, it is a time to work on releasing the energies that no longer are working for you. But this will be a social Full Moon time, so it’s a great energy to have a party under or to spend some time with a close BFF, and since Libra is about relationships maybe have a romantic dinner with the object of your affection.


April 20 – Sun enters Taurus

This Sun cycle is a time when we simply slow down, but we are also more determined, patient, and stubborn. The energy of the sign of Taurus is more practical, grounded, and stable. This is a great help with so many other cosmic connections during this time speeding things up, we can take a time out and look more closely at events unfolding around us or any complicated situations we are involved in with some common sense. This transit highlights things that are pleasing, beautiful, and attractive. This will be a month of relying on what’s always worked in the past but also moving forward with the times, it’s about integrating tradition with evolution in our lives. You will want to be more comfortable during this time as well, so set up camp for the next month to make sure you have a safe and cozy place to hang out while the Sun is in Taurus. Our senses are aroused and highly activated, so we enjoy more so, whatever pleases the senses, with things like food, music, entertainment, and sexual activities, (especially with Mars in the sign of Gemini as well, bow-chicka-bow-wow) we can have an incredibly sexy month. This cycle runs through May 21st.


April 20 – Blazing Love

The Goddess of love, Venus is moving into the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries, this brings fresh new energy into your love life and around your finances. This cycle brings love on rather quickly, relationships both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. Under this fiery influence, we tend to hunt each other down in matters of the heart, as we are more bold, courageous, aggressive, and impatient. Even though we can much more direct than usual with the folks we love and care for, some of you might be more reserved about your deeper emotions, and if you are feeling insecure you can get kind of aggressive or mean, especially if someone isn’t validating or expressing love back. This can cause some folks to be more sneaky and strategic when it comes to matters of the heart or anything involving money. Under the Venus in Aries influence we don’t look back to the past, it is a time to move forward. Each day is looked at as new and full of opportunities, so each moment matters more. We are not interested in anything mushy or things like apologies, we simply enjoy the chase and conquest. Relationships that are more long-term can use this fiery energy to reignite their passions, and if single love that is initiated now can sizzle out fast. Make sure and keep things moving forward if you want a new commitment around love or money, but also pay attention to what will happen in the long-term unless you are just looking for a hookup! This will run through May 15th. 


April 22 – Exciting Journeys 

A new exciting journey begins with the Sun making a connection called a “conjunction” to more unpredictable Uranus! This can be a liberating experience as we move forward from old habits and ways of thinking, especially about ourselves. Staying positive is key to being successful under this cycle, as it may not be as stable as some would like, but good things can happen. It’s a time to put your past behind you where it belongs, and keep an open mind about other people and embrace new thoughts and ideas. Most of all stay true to yourself and honor other people’s desire to express who they are and their own unique qualities. 


April 24 – Power Plays – Pluto Retrograde

Powerful Pluto challenges us on how we use and gain personal power, when Pluto goes backward or Retrograde. How do you deal with power and control? Some folks can’t simply get enough of power, and others are nervous when they have more, and then there are a few folks who refuse to take control of anything in their lives when they should. When Pluto goes Retrograde, it brings about power struggles around well, power, people rise and fall from power during this time, as there are lots of plays for power made. This is a good time to do some soul searching around your own personal relationship with power. What are your goals? What do you want to achieve in life? Do you feel like you have power over someone else and their life or is someone making the decisions for you? This can affect any part of our lives, but for the next several months we will be figuring out to how to move forward in ways that make us happy, just be careful about who’s toes you step on or how many folks you use your power over to get there! Remember Karmic balance always comes into play with these sort of things and if you abuse or just use folks to get what you want, it will eventually catch up with you in one way or another. Pluto will be in its Retrograde cycle until October 3rd.


Saturn Retrograde

April 29 – Saturn goes Retrograde – Taking Responsibility

Saturn the planet of rules and boundaries goes into its yearly Retrograde phase. This is a time when we must review our lives and make sure what we going after is exactly what we still want. This Retro period lasts through September 18th. During this Retro cycle, we are taken back over territory that we probably have already been through at one point. Saturn is about taking our responsibilities, rules, and boundaries more seriously. So there are going to be areas of your life that are important to go back over and review, to see what you can do to make these situations more secure. This can be a frustrating time, so we have to face possible limitations, barriers, or working on ending habits that aren’t so good for our future long-term success. 


April 30 – Saturn in Retrograde gets a boost!

To further enhance Saturn in Retrogrades energies, Saturn is in a conjunction with the Lunar South Node point. You may want to think about what you are being responsible for? Are you taking other folks burdens on or taking care of other people’s obligations? Do you think you should be the one in charge and are telling everyone else what you think they should be doing? Are you taking the steps to fix things when something comes up or are you enabling bad behavior? During this cycle, it’s time to go over your responsibilities and let go of old habits, old learned behaviors, and ways of thinking around who’s in charge and why!

Jupiter Retrograde in Scorpio

Jupiter Retrograde in Scorpio

March 8, 2018
by Ruby

Jupiter in Leo

 

Jupiter enters its Retrograde phase on March 8, 2018, in the sign of Scorpio until July 10th. While Jupiter is Retrograde we should be reviewing our visions, ideals, and belief system. Jupiter is the planet of luck that brings blessings, good fortune, opportunities and more. When Jupiter is moving forward it brings amazing gifts, and this can be in any part of our lives.

Because Jupiter is in the sign of Scorpio through November and during this Retrograde cycle. The themes that come up will be around our value system and personal power! But there may be issues around deceit, obsessions, and morals as well.

Jupiter Retrogrades transit lasts for about 4 months. During this time the general vibe turns into a more philosophical or spiritual introspection, as we get to reflect on our belief system. Issues around our personal growth and development, happiness and success will come up to review or be worked on.

While Jupiter is Retrograde it will be making a beautiful connection to powerful Pluto that can help us seriously detox! This energy purifies our bodies and soul, and it brings on more positive changes that can bring in much success with it. You won’t have to make changes or react to unexpected events so much, instead, this is a more natural development that increases one’s power and influence and brings spiritual and personal growth. There are very powerful forces that will be working behind the scenes to help raise us up to a higher level of evolution.

Then we have to contend with Jupiter Retrograde making a strong connection to mental Mercury!
You’ll be more optimistic but can slip up and focus too much on the bigger picture and ignore the little details that matter. We also will have to pay extra attention to how we are expressing ourselves during this time as we can act above others, arrogant, and ignorant and with so many signs in Aries including Mercury during this time, we can really lose our cool. Jupiter’s influence makes us feel overly optimistic and this can get out of control, so we must watch to not overdo or overextend ourselves, or we can push too hard and go to far especially if you have an addictive personality.

Jupiter Retrograde helps us learn how to grow in whatever area of our lives it is affecting, it’s that area we need to work on that can be so important. So during this cycle, we need to take extra time to take stock and to make sure everything is in order before you continue on that path in your life. You’ll find challenges around self-worth, so ask yourself if you really are ready to receive some sort of good fortune, and possibly a new romance or an increase in wealth and abundance. There might be a behavior that you are having a hard time breaking like greed or addiction, and it’s out of control.

During this “Jupiter Retrograde” cycle will be a time to recognize and admit you have a problem. Many people suffer more from feeling unworthy and not be open to things getting better than you will believe. Change is hard for some folks! Things can go so out of control during this time that an intervention or some drastic event has to occur to shake you out of your rut, stubbornness, or ignorance. The thing is if when Jupiter goes back to it’s normal pace and out of its Retrograde cycle, you can come to terms with the issues that are more relevant and be prepared and ready to bounce back and move toward better happiness and success.

A Time of Retrogrades

image

“A time of Retrogrades”
by Ruby

January is a time for reflection and review as so many planets are either already in Retrograde or about to be, this is when a plant appears to be moving backwards in the sky, but it’s influence on us also changes a bit as we feel it more internally.

With two planets already in Retrograde, Mercury and Jupiter, we all should get a opportunity to revisit some “Karmic Lessons” and finish up some old business.

Mercury in Retrograde:
Mercury turned Retrograde yesterday (go here to learn more, https://goo.gl/jZpz8x) and will stay there through Jan. 25th. This three week period is a time to review things in our life and to learn by doing things over and over. The Universe actually gives us the chance to slow down and double check everything, if we like it or not. This is not a time for new beginnings, it’s really more about renewal and taking your time, so only schedule in about half of what you normally do. Anything that’s started during a Mercury in RX cycle may not last or work out as planned. It’s not a time to buy a new car or computer as Mercury rules over anything with a motor basically. Give yourself more time to travel and expect delays just to be prepared. Use this time to re-examine your life, do things like refinance your home, reschedule appointments, edit your books or blogs, anything that starts with RE is where your focus should be.

Jupiter Retrograde:
Jupiter the planet that motivates us and creates expansion is in Virgo and turns Retrograde on the 7th. So wherever you have Virgo in your chart is where you get a chance to review that part of your life. Virgo rules over our health and physical healing, so this is a good time to safeguard your health so you don’t catch any viruses going around, and to work on healing practices. Health issues we havent totally fixed might come up, this period give us a chance to work on them.

Virgo energy also pertains to the work we do, so this can be a positive period to review your daily work habits and career path too. The top New Year resolutions are always around getting healthy and our work. So if you’ve been waiting on something to materialize, it may take time now as our progress feels slowed down during Jupiter in Retrograde. It’s just an opportunity to really go over it all thoroughly and then you won’t have to worry about it hopefully again, or for a very long time. Remember we are being delayed not denied during a Retrograde cycle.

Mars Retrograde (Astro Tip):
Also Mars the planet of action will be going into Retrograde in April. This won’t be a great time to start anything new, but it will be a perfect time to put a game plan together to insure success for the next two years! Mars Retro runs through the end of June. During this three month period we should focus on what we need and want from our life, it’s a good time to plan out your goals in a powerful way. If you use this time wisely, your goals can manifest over the next few years! Dreams can literally come into being.

Since April through June will be a time of planning and making up strategies, we’re not suppose to act on our ideas until we have a solid plan and after Mars is back to normal in June. This can look like updating resumes, contacting people and networking, studying, and learning, putting legal papers together, seeking new relationships, outlining ideas, and writing out plans and goals…. these are just a few examples of what you can do during the Mars Retro cycle. If you don’t take this opportunity to pre-plan your success, it might feel like your constantly playing catch up or are two steps behind for awhile.

Wherever Mars falls in your Astrological Natal Chart is where you’ll get the chance to lay the foundation for your personal success story. It’s different for each of us!

If you’d like to know more info on this, Order a “One Question Reading” with me about 2016 and I will look at your Chart and give you some ideas about your own “Mars in Retrograde” plan. I will also include a “affirmation” you can say and write down to help you manifest your goals during that time frame. Just message, email, or text me to order your “One Question/Mars Reading”

Jupiter “Stationary” Retrograde

image

Thursday – Astro Alert
Jupiter “Station” Retrograde

Jupiter is in Leo currently, it is the planet that rules luck and expansion and our belief system, and is now “stationary” or has stopped to slowly begin moving forward again… after its five-month long Retrograde period. Our hope and optimism should return again.

This station energy over the next week or so can be felt strongly. But it also gives us the chance to feel connected again to a higher-vibration and can restore our hope and faith. After the last Uranus-Pluto Square in March, we so need this.

Over the last 5 months, Jupiter in Retrograde gave us the opportunity to learn more about how we connect to our higher-self. It helped us work on what we actually believe in and helped us restructure our “beliefs.” Now that Jupiter is going back to its normal pace, we may be able to live by our new belief systems and connect to our inner-child energy, like our enthusiasm, creativity and happiness. We’ve hopefully at the very least learned what works for us and what doesn’t, when it comes to our beliefs and faith.

Jupiter provides us wisdom, as we have been connecting to Jupiter’s energy more within ourselves , while it was Retrograde. As this planet slowly builds momentum we should be able to focus more so on its traits in the outer world. So for the next week focus on what you’ve learned about your beliefs, and what you’ve learned about yourself over the last 5 months. Did you take this time to connect to your inner-child and see what healing needs to occur? We can now move to the next level, which hopefully includes you being aware and of what you truly now believe in.
