EYE IN THE SKY: JUPITER AT 0 DEGREES SAGITTARIUS AND STATIONARY RETROGRADE
Jupiter is the big dog in the sky that everyone loves and it is very powerful as it prepares to go retrograde on April 10-August 12th . When it is at the first degree of a sign it is a bit unsettled–like a person changing jobs, moving or changing relationships. We have written about this in previous articles but it still Jupiter and it brings a lot of hope–maybe falsely to life now in Sagittarius until April 24th.
Jupiter is very powerful in the sky 5 days before and 5 days after station so still very powerful April 6-15th until and it is a powerful week of expansion, good luck and for wisdom and this will be felt mostly on Thursday of this week, the day ruled by Jupiter .
Still, Jupiter is at the 0 degrese it can be a bit unsettled. The slowdown is happening in the constellation of Mula Nakshatra (Sagittarius 0-13.20) and ruled by Ketu and it is a constellation that wants to move people toward more spirituality and it sometimes will take away the material as it beckons us toward new spiritual beginnings.
From a perspective of financial astrology, Jupiter retrograde April-August may slow marketing in business and it also can slow economic expansion so by the time 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 harder through the summer to make things happen. Sometimes the stock market will peak around Jupiter station into the week of April 10th and then congest and retrace but there are always many factors around this for prediction. We are not seeing a crash this year but it may slow as Jupiter goes retrograde and pause and retrace. (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 750 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, have Jupiter retrograde in your chart or if you have key planets at 0-29 Sagittarius , you will be impacted more by the planetary station or if you are in a Jupiter mahadasha.
