Slow Down: Jupiter Is Going Retrograde

Turn inward for answers as giant Jupiter turns backward

Giant Jupiter, the planet of expansion, growth and opportunity, is about to become the planet of introversion and spirituality -- at least temporarily! Jupiter goes retrograde in Cancer from November 7 to March 6, 2014.

While Jupiter is retrograde, we’ll spend much time looking inward and relying on our own personal wisdom. We'll draw on this to explore the growth and changes we feel we need to transform our lives and put us on the path toward becoming the people we really want to be.

Instead of the happy-go-lucky planet pushing us to go go go, Jupiter will now go slow slow slow -- which means it's the perfect time to take a time out and examine our personal philosophies and reevaluate the beliefs that motivate us on a daily basis.

It’s also a time to look at the details that are a part of our larger plan. Because Jupiter in forward-motion promotes activity and going out into the world, Jupiter backwards is all about knowing ourselves and our emotional life. Reconsider truths you previously thought to be self-evident. Are there any lies you’ve been telling yourself in order to get ahead? Re-examine these, and be more loyal to who you truly are.

Interesting and unexpected opportunities may still present themselves during this time -- and if that happens, it will often be directly connected to lessons you need to learn, and aspects of yourself you’ve ignored. For example, you might be presented with an invitation to return to school, take a family trip or to reconnect with a person who you might have rejected (in friendship or love), yet who might have had a lot to teach you.

Even in retrograde, Jupiter is all about finding the highest version of yourself -- so take advantage of these opportunities, and go for it!

I find it best to prepare to prepare: I purchased a new, blank journal and set it on my nighttable, started a sectioned list of "Things to Do" and am cleaning my house from top-to-bottom. This will provide a chaos-free zone in which to reflect.

@Sylvester - Retrograde is a term astrologers use to denote a planet that looks as if it's going *backwards*. It really isn't; it's just doing a loop in place in a way that makes it seem that it's going backwards. There's a section both here & on tarot.com about what it means in our lives; here, it's under the "astrology 101" tab. Hope this helps!

A Will of Steel: Mars in Scorpio

By Maria DeSimone

One of the qualities that simultaneously impresses and frustrates me most about my son Vincent is his indomitable will. As his Taurus Sun mother, I am constantly irritated when I want him to do something and he doesn't want to. He'll never listen unless HE makes the choice for himself.
