On October 17th or 18th, depending on location and timezone, Jupiter, the planet of abundance, prosperity, and expansion finally move direct again in the sign of Aquarius. Now is an excellent time to step forward into our personal and collective abundance. Since June 20, 2021, Jupiter, also known as the Great Benefic, has embarked on a retrograde journey first through the watery depths of Pisces and then through the airy sign of Aquarius. We’ve gotten a taste of what Jupiter will bring us when it finally heads into the sign of Pisces at the end of 2021 as well as the continued benefits of harnessing the positive aspects of Aquarian energy. Now that Jupiter is moving forward again, we can really see the big picture for what it is and appreciate all the windfalls, abundant glory, and fortune present in our lives.
Learning from Jupiter Retrograde
The word retrograde is often related to fear and worry for some because of the idea of energy moving backward (thank’s Mercury retrograde). However, retrogrades aren’t all that bad at all. In fact, most individuals are born with at least one natal planetary position in retrograde motion and some lucky ones have several planets retrograde making them “retrograded people.” Retrograde energy simply makes the expression of planetary energy an internal experience. With the case of Jupiter, the expansion, abundance, and prosperity that is often associated with this planet are turned inwards. Likewise, the less than pleasant energies of being over-indulgent, hypocritical, intellectually haughty, and at times unwilling to commit are also turned inward. All for us to consider how we process Jupiter energy for ourselves.
