Jupiter is the Planet of Expansion
Jupiter will be retrograding the watery sign of Pisces into airy Aquarius. Jupiter the planet of expansion, growth, adventure and good luck goes retrograde every 9 months for about 4 months. In 2021 Jupiter will be retrograde June 20 – October 18, 2021 beginning in Pisces and ending in Aquarius. There is also a ‘shadow period’ commencing a few weeks before and after these dates.
Jupiter has affinity with the male yang energy and when he’s retrograde, you may become more inward focused. It’s as if expansive and dynamic energy contracts inwards. Many people are affected to some extent but if you have Sagittarius, Pisces or Aquarius in your chart you will be very strongly affected and it’s a period which is likely to bring up lots of emotions and ideas.
An Opportunity to Take Control
Jupiter is normally a benevolent planet however when retrograding, expansion and growth go into reverse gear in some areas of life. But again if you have a habit that has gotten out of control, this retrograde might give you the chance to finally take control and overcome addictions, negative habits and behaviours that no longer serve your highest good.
Also on the positive side, there’s a chance that – some may lose weight! However, a general feeling of contraction or restriction could also be experienced and the pursuit of ambition and opportunity could be hindered. Your creativity may seem stuck or decrease in some way and technology may also have issues. However, a positive possibility is the elimination of hindrances that once stood in the way of success.
Review, Reflect, Reassess
As you can see Jupiter retrograde is a bit of a mixed bag of influences, some positive and others less so. All planetary retrogrades give us the opportunity to review, reflect and reassess different areas of our lives.
