EYE IN THE SKY: JUPITER AT 29 DEGREES LIBRA
Jupiter is the big dog in the sky that everyone loves and it is very powerful as it prepares to go retrograde on March 8th-July 10th. When it is at the last degree of a sign it is a bit unsettled–like a person changing jobs, moving or changing relationships. Still, it will not go into Scorpio until October. It still may feel that the issues you have around Libra may feel a bit unsettled and in flux as you prepare to revisit them over the next 5 months.
Jupiter is very powerful in the sky 5 days before an after station so still very powerful March 4-12th until and it is a powerful week of expansion, good luck and for wisdom and this will be felt mostly on Sunday-Thursday of next week. This powerful Jupiter is also trining Mercury and Venus the next few days into March 1-2nd and that is supportive for expansion, writing and optimism.
Still, Jupiter is at the 29th degree where it can be a bit unsettled. We should note that Mercury and Venus are also going to be at 29 degrees on March 1st-2nd as they prepare to go into Pisces. My friend Juliana Swanson of astral harmony has noted the significance of the 29th degree: “The 29th degree in astrology is often called the critical, karmic or fated degree. In western terms it is anaretic which means “that which destroys form,” and is often associated with some sense of not being able to see one’s way forward. It is at the end of the sign which can mean that certain of the associated planetary qualities are feeling used up, frustrated or at the end of their rope.
The slowdown is happening in the constellation of Vishaka and ruled by Jupiter and it is a very material constellation but also beckons us toward new spiritual beginnings. This particular pada (Libra 26.40-29.59) owned by Gemini is connected to relationship and so a great deal of wisdom and insight into relationship issues may surfaces around this Jupiter station. Great power in spiritual matters coming out at this time.
From a perspective of financial astrology, Jupiter retrograde March-July may slow marketing in business and it also can slow economic expansion so by the time 1st and 2nd quarter GDP comes out in July, we will see the economy slow. It is also a time for slower marketing so if you are a businessman, so take this knowledge and work hard until March 8th to push through and get your marketing projects done and in place as there will be delays over the coming months. Sometimes the stock market will peak around Jupiter station into the week of March 8th and then congest and retrace but there are always many factors around this for prediction. We are not seeing a crash but a correction into late March. (To get a trial of our financial reports, visit www.commoditytimers.com )
If you were born with Jupiter retrograde in your chart, then when it goes retrograde in transit, it will trigger your issues. People born with Jupiter retrograde will be motivated to to win back things they have lost so business people may get hit by more refund requests or calling in loans or rebate requests. Jupiter governs husbands and male relationship so women may start feeling like they could do better with their spouse and think about trading them in. Jupiter retrograde can be lazy, over-optimistic, and thus miss opportunities. Jupiter may become too generous and reach out to help abandoned or rejected people and projects and so be sure to evaluate whether you really have the time to put out this effort–though always a good one.
Jupiter is connected to the liver which has over 700 major functions in the body and can be slowed by this transit particularly if you have this combination in your natal chart or have a tendency toward liver problems. Make sure to drink warm water with a fresh squeezed lemon every morning which is the best way to keep your liver toned up. May be a good month for a liver cleanse if you can handle it. Avoid taxing your liver by overeating or eating very complicated fatty foods. Jupiter also has connections to the pancreas so will be important not to eat too many sweets or over-indulge and weak Saturn continues to push us toward relief and our food cravings may get out of hand.
The spinal twist is a key posture for the next 5 months as it supports the liver and you may need to do the cow pose which also strengthens the liver. (see below). Of course make sure you get proper training from these poses from a qualified yoga instructor and do not strain.
Of course, charts are very individual and our general articles impact people differently. If you are Pisces or Sagittarius rising or Libra or Aries Rising, have Jupiter retrograde in your chart or if you have key planets at 29 Libra, Aquarius or Gemini, you will be impacted more by the planetary station or if you are in a Jupiter mahadasha.
