When stars align: Jupiter in Retrograde 2017

Maybe you’ve had a bad week or things didn’t seem to go as planned- it may be safe to blame Mercury retrograde for the troubles but not all planets incite such chaos when they move into retrograde status. This happens when a planet appears to move in the opposite direction than it normally does. One of the best planet retrogrades is Jupiter’s — and we’re about to feel its effects starting  Monday, February 6.

For those of you who only associate retrogrades with ruined plans and awkward miscommunications, you may want to take a moment to embrace Jupiter retrograde as it might be the “pause” button you’ve been looking for. Jupiter retrograde doesn’t occur as often as Mercury does but it sticks around for much longer. Where Mercury goes retrograde around three times a year for 19 to 24 days at a time, Jupiter spends 120 days in its single, annual rotation.

If you believe in Astrology- Jupiter rules wisdom, luck, and progress, and where it appears in your birth chart can determine the status of these areas of your life. When this planet is direct, it promotes movement, active changes, and new opportunities. Before you panic, Jupiter moving into retrograde doesn’t bring these forces to a halt. More accurately, it puts them into slow motion.

From what little we’ve seen of 2017 so far, this year is set to be nonstop. We will be moving full speed ahead into 2018 — and wouldn’t it be great to just take a breather? Jupiter retrograde is your chance to merge out of the fast lane.

Jupiter retrograde encourages us to turn inward and consider the state of things from a perspective other than our own. This is a fantastic opportunity to reflect on a tough decision you’ve been putting off or to reevaluate progresses you’ve made in your personal life or career. Mercury goes into retrograde in April so enjoy this peace and quiet while you can.
