Jupiter goes Retrograde in fiery Sagittarius on April 10th until August 11th. This planet may have milder effects than most of the other planets when viewed in Retrograde motion. It stations Retrograde at 24 degrees Sagittarius, a couple degrees from the Galactic Center, kicked off with an opposition to the Moon in Gemini. Messages from many sources are profuse and important signs and guideposts are streaming in strongly now. These are signals of what things may need to be worked on, enhanced, healed or given greater structure while Jupiter is Retrograde. This upcoming period will offer the chance to review many of the great adventures, learning experiences and opportunities gained since over the past several months and to make sure that optimal use is being made of the tools and resources at our disposal.
Saturn will also be turning Retrograde from April 29th to September 18th, adding to the vibe of review this summer. Since Jupiter entered Sagittarius on November 8th of 2018 things have been moving way too fast and furious for some. For others things have been amazingly expansive, bringing much needed change in stagnant situations. It will soon become easier to assimilate what has been learned and experienced in recent months, and to make any desired corrections or updates in the overall direction that life appears to be taking. Travel may be less frantic and more focused. Real or metaphorical puzzles and pressing questions may finally be solved and answered. It probably won’t be time to full steam ahead with all the information acquired until Jupiter goes Direct in August, or perhaps later in September when Saturn is also Direct.
Jupiter stations Direct at 14 degrees Sagittarius on August 11. Those who have planets at or very close to this degree will likely feel especially relieved to move forward with renewed energy and optimism in some way. In general it will be time to put new plans into action and take healthy risks again for the sake of growth, learning, honor and prosperity.
