Jupiter is in Retrograde from July 28th – November 23rd 2022.

Firstly what is a retrograde? 

A retrograde is when a planet appears to turn backwards in the sky. This happens due to an optical illusion caused by differences in orbit. 

All the major planets (excluding the luminaries – the sun and the moon) go retrograde from time to time.

When planets go retrograde the impact of the planet changes and the type of activities that are recommended change too.

What is a Jupiter Retrograde all about?

Jupiter is the planet of luck and abundance, knowledge and wisdom, and growth and expansion and is ruled by the sign of Sagittarius – and the 9th house of Travel, Learning, and Expansion (and publishing!). 

Jupiter represents where we can experience true luck and expansion in our lives, but it is not luck that comes without effort so the term potential is probably more apt as it shows us where we have the potential for great luck and abundance. It is considered to be a lucky planet that brings beautiful energy whilst in transit however, it can have a darker side of indulgence and excess and an expansion in areas that we don’t want (i.e. our waistline!). 

Jupiter can be thought of as the guru, the teacher, the seeker, or the guide and his presence develops our higher mind.

So when Jupiter goes retrograde this heralds a time for deep, introspective spiritual and philosophical growth and development. It is time to connect with your inner truth, your true north or soul purpose, and to look at the big picture of your life and course-correct where necessary. Jupiter loves to learn so it is the perfect time to dive into study and learning or get serious with your spiritual practice.

During a Jupiter Retrograde, we may feel introspective, soulful, spiritual, intuitive and optimistic.

A Jupiter retrograde will ask us to go within and discover our true potential. This is a time where we might be able to see opportunities and potential but not yet be able to take action on it – but like Jupiter, keep the faith and your time will come!

By the time Jupiter turns retrograde we will be ready to harness the potential we have discovered (or rediscovered!) and to take action on it.

What might the position of Jupiter’s Retrograde in 2022 mean for you?

In which part of your life do you need to go within, reconnect and craft your new path?

For me, it is in my 7th House of Marriage and Partnership.

I am in discussions with a good friend to work on a joint project as well as my marriage being in a really positive place right now with both of us finding success in our respective work and calling. It feels like a time for me to continue to study and build my knowledge as well as a time to write and create so that I can continue my relationships with existing students in my certification as they move into the Level 2 Certification after Jupiter goes direct again.
