Jupiter retrograde August 30, 5:17am EDT
10 Taurus 21
Sabian symbol: A woman sprinkling flowers
Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and he does everything BIG!
He is the thunder and lightening god who resides on the top of mountains and because he hangs out in lofty position he is our philosopher and education planet. When Jupiter retrogrades we redefine our philosophy on a subject and in Taurus we will be looking at our philosophies on money, properties, capital, assets and valuables. We will also 're-educate' ourselves on financial and 'valuables'.
Jupiter is the judge planet and all of us will judge our portfoloio with a keen eye. Even if you don't have a portfolio you have things in your life that are valuable and during the retrograde you will decided if they are serving you. Some people will have buyers remorse, others will want to double down. Or perhaps you have given no attention to money and business, valuable assets etc and you are feeling vulnerable that you have goose egg.
Whatever you have or don't have in your 'valuables' category you will mull over your position for the next four months.
Jupiter is retrograde until December 25 5:08pm-- so we have four months to "get our money on". Not just the money we earn but our investments. We can right the wrongs during the retrograde. Probably not a great time to actually launch a new business but if you get the idea for the business during the retrograde you can do the research during the retro.
Jupiter will move from 11 degrees to Zero Taurus---Look at your natal chart and see if Jupiter is making any aspects during the retrograde to any of your planets. Jupiter presents opportunities and doors can open in a retrograde. But even in the harsh apsects you will later find the oopportunity. It will sting (no shit) at first and a lot of it will be activated by your opinionated mouth (Jupiter) and probably an unwillingness to change (Taurus is stubborn) but by the end of the transit you will have learned a lot (Jupiter) about yourself and THAT is invaluable (there's a great Taurus word).
I personally think this is a fabulous retrograde at the right time. I know you have all read my new moon so you are aware that Jupiter is in grand trine with the Sun and Moon and the fact that he is turning retrograde in the cycle is asupicious. This is a gift!
And remember, we will NOT have another Jupiter retrograde in Taurus until 2023---ask yourself, can you really afford to wait until then to fix any holes in your money? Use this time thoughtfully for the next four months let's see where we all land by Christmas!
