Jupiter Retrograde: Watch Your Wallet, Heal Your Heart

Jupiter Retrograde: Watch Your Wallet, Heal Your Heart
Don't panic! Contrary to things you may have heard in the astrological rumor mill, not all retrogrades have adverse consequences in our lives. In fact, with such a benevolent planet as Jupiter involved, blessings are bound to occur!

Jupiter typically retrogrades for close to half the year -- this time from August 30 through December 25 -- giving you an opportunity to hone your wisdom, repair your relationships and integrate the teachings of our greatest guru: life.


Whenever jovial Jupiter is under the influence of grounded Taurus, we are taught that expansion happens safely only when we are rooted. Being the first fixed Earth sign, Taurus rules the material things in life; naturally, our physical senses and sensual pleasures become the priority under the influence of this Venus-ruled sign. The retrograde phase of Jupiter in Taurus is an excellent time to incorporate recent life lessons and reflect upon all that has happened since Jupiter entered Taurus last summer.

Taurus also rules money and possessions. And let's not forget that whenever any planet goes retrograde, we are forced to slow down and limit outer expression to avoid trouble. Under Jupiter's influence, there is a huge urge to splurge ... but this retrograde is asking you to watch your wallet and conserve your resources.

This is an ideal opportunity to look at what you truly value and make sure you're not blowing money on people, places or things that don't fit the bill. Use the next four months to re-evaluate the means by which you make and spend money. Are these means aligned with your values? Do you overvalue the wrong things? Do you live beyond your means? The practical, no-nonsense energy of Taurus will help root you in the reality of your financial situation.

Consider the current Jupiter retrograde period a reality check in the service of greater wisdom. After all, when you stop and consider it, you may find that you need a lot less than you think you do!
