Jupiter is a gorgeous, magnanimous planet, and we are extremely pro-Jupiter. If Jupiter was retrograde when you were born, you may need to do some inner work on abundance, expansion, luck, and charity. You're likely to have success if you focus on giving rather than getting, on serving rather than being served, on selflessness rather than selfishness.
If you were born during Jupiter's retrograde, you'll need to make sure that you don't become attached to your money or material possessions. Keep in mind that Jupiter represents generosity and good fortune, so if you find yourself in trouble, expect help from beyond your circle of family and friends. Even though Jupiter is known for bringing good luck, its retrograde can bring problems related to wealth.
Jupiter's retrograde affects everyone differently, but it's important to note that those who were born during this period are likely to face challenges with regard to wealth. Sometimes these difficulties come in the form of bad luck; other times they involve losing something valuable. Whatever the case may be, keep in mind that Jupiter makes people generous by nature, so even though you may not know it yet, someone out there needs your help. Find ways to give away your money or resources and the universe will take care of the rest.
In astrology, Jupiter is the planet of fortune, expansion, development, and fulfillment. When it activates crucial natal planets in your birth chart, it always delivers blessings. The more energy (Sun or Moon) that's involved, the better the delivery. A major life change often results from this influence.
Jupiter has been called the Great Beneficier; Saturn, the Gracious Destroyer. Both planets induce changes in their fields to make way for new opportunities. So, they too are planets of fortune. Mars, the Warrior God, represents a force of determination and resistance to fear. It is also the protector planet. All of these elements combine to create a process that delivers success through hard work and effortlessness with the help of destiny.
Jupiter is the king of planets and was considered sacred by ancient civilizations. It is still regarded as important today because it shapes our fate and determines our opportunities. The word "planet" comes from the Greek word "Planetes," which means "wanderer." Because Jupiter wanders through space, its influence on us varies depending on where it is in relation to other planets in the solar system. When Jupiter is far away from Earth, its effects are not obvious. But as it gets closer, it can have a dramatic impact on our lives.
Because of this, their retrogrades tend to be more mild, unless they are the natural governing planet of your Sun, Moon, or rising sign (in which case you will experience them more strongly!). Jupiter assists us in identifying roadblocks that have prevented us from developing, discovering, and enjoying life, as well as seeking possibilities. When functioning properly, it is one of the most effective planets for inspiring change.
When functioning poorly, it is one of the most difficult planets to deal with because its effects are so large and long-lasting. It can cause problems with concentration, memory, mood, ability to cope with stress, and fertility. The planet itself cannot be blamed for these symptoms; instead, they are results of conflicting energies within the person related to identity issues, power struggles, or pain that has not been resolved. However, even if you do not identify with these problems, they may still affect you because Jupiter is responsible for bringing attention to these issues that would otherwise remain hidden.
Its influence is also what makes the retrograde period so important. During this time, Jupiter reevaluates its position in your natal chart, taking into account any changes that have occurred since your birth. This includes any new planets that have entered your chart, whether they be major planets like Uranus or minor ones like Phobos (the Martian moon). In other words, Jupiter checks in with you every time it goes around the Sun!
