Jupiter turned retrograde on October 4th. Astrological community pretty much agrees that it’s good for sorting out your priorities and spiritual progress, and bad for money. In my mind, there should not be duality about this. Spirit should attract more money, if one really needs it. You may have noticed this retrograde influence last mid-week by feeling kind of heavier and occasionally really annoyed or really hyper. It’s a very subtle influence which may complicate holidays for many, since it will be going on for 4 months, until January 31 2013. According to solar horoscope, you should be experiencing something like this
Aries: Did you notice how your networking picked up during the summer. You turned out to be an efficient communicator and have compelled many. Many new and sparkly ideas now give you deservedly the title of the innovator and the visionary of the Zodiac. Over the next four months Jupiter will be retrograde and you will need to dig in deeper, and have a little bit more patience with people understanding your creativity.
Taurus: There are few good scenarios involved in how you decided to expand during this summer. Of course first you needed to possibly cut on your calories intake, but also with the new found freedom and independence, maybe you were looking at some big purchase like a house or a car or a little island somewhere. Well, take a break from your wishful thinking, and postpone your big plans for the next year. That’s the message of Jupiter retrograde. You can now become really creative in ways of generating cash. Anything but the usual.
Gemini: This summer you felt a fresh breeze shaking some unusual fruits into the cocktail of your life. You had to adjust maybe to having a little bit more self-confidence than usually. Naturally curious, you suddenly made a plan of what else you need to learn in order to properly grow and have more fun. With Jupiter retrograde for the next four months, resist the change to scale back on your plans. Everything is still possible, and will lead to even greater success, once you complete digging into your inner resources.
Cancer: This year and the next year until your birthday is a very unique period when you are required to clean up your past. This purging can involve all kinds of events that you can’t control, but the one thing you can control is the idea where you want to be by the end of the next year. With this week Jupiter retrograde, you’ll be looking deeper into yourself, and if you are involved with anything creative and artistic, you will be blessed with a lot of inspiration until the end of the year.
Leo: This summer was supposed to bring you new friendships. This year is about your greater social connectedness, so that you can live up to your creative endeavors. With Jupiter turning retrograde past week, the positive trend will not go away, but it will bring you the opportunity to get to know better your new social circles.
Virgo: This summer brought to you a new sense of how you can succeed and share the wealth of your willingness to help. You also became a bit surprised at how sometimes things that are superficial work just as well as the deeper, more concerned approach. With Jupiter retrograde for the next 4 months, you may actually become annoyed with superficiality, but you will be also able to better define your professional goals. You are slowly turning into an authority figure – if you want it or not.
Libra: You can turn over the next 4 months into a new age guru. Did you notice the new book titles that keep dancing in front of your eyes you, and how they stimulate your intellectual appetite? Now you will be able to completely absorb all the wisdom and knowledge of your choice. Sign me up for your next workshop. I need some work done on my chakras.
Scorpio: Relationships established from the beginning of the year really took off during the summer. With Jupiter retrograde for the next 4 months you will dig in, and add more solidity to the partnerships that are very promising, and could turn even more fruitful. It could be your close partner, it could be your own business. Postpone all the big plans and moves for the next year if possible. You still don’t know everything about the potentials of your relationships.
Sagittarius: Why is it that you so often feel that you don’t have enough time? Maybe because you just want to rush forward at any price. As of this week your ruler Jupiter is turning retrograde and you will have to look inward, into time that may feel frozen at times. You will review if all the partnerships that you encountered recently are really good for your soul’s journey. Take it as a little lesson in priorities. Good time to become philosophical again, for the next 4 months.
Capricorn: Over the summer your job has become little bit more interesting. New boss, new tasks, and it feels like there may be some opportunities for you. With what they call in astrology Jupiter turning retrograde, you work may become more taking than giving for the next four months, along with some work on adjusting your soul to your real purpose.
Aquarius: The summer must have been fun for you. You probably got excited about all the opportunities to express your out-of-this world ideas. This trend will continue, but not with the same speed. Your impressions will stay longer with you, and you will master the art of romancing your potential partners with greater depth. If you get the yearning to be close to children or have a little one, it’s only natural at this time.
Pisces: If you planned to move over the summer and you didn’t do it yet, postpone your plans for another 4 months if possible. This influence is called Jupiter retrograde and sometimes while in this position, psychology is turned inwards and the outward world and expansion don’t always match the intentions. The next couple of months can actually bring you closer to you origins and your parents. Situations you thought unable to emotionally handle now will be more workable.
