Jupiter turns retrograde on March 8 at 23/24 degrees of Scorpio. Between now and August 19 it will move all the way back to 15 degrees of Scorpio.
Jupiter the philosopher planet in Scorpio reminds us that death is not just death, it is an opportunity for a rebirth. Something dies so new can be reborn. The last time Jupiter retrograded in Scorpio was March 2006 to July 2006. Do you remember what was going on during that time? What rebirth occurred? Was it around the subject of money, investments, taxes, death, debt, sex, power, control or legal matters? Was there a rebirth? How did new opportunities present? Did you jump on those opportunities and run with it? If you have any regrets for not running with it…you get another chance between now and August. And for those people with planets in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius between 15 and 24 degrees are put on notice that Jupiter is not a subtle planet and Scorpio can be extreme so be prepared for you to release, abandon or jettison even if you hadn't thought about it before, in order to find fresh empowerment. Jupiter in Scorpio can also bring out some crazy zealots so we should prepare to see some of that in the news.
