Jupiter in Scorpio turns retrograde on March 8th, at 23° Scorpio; the planet will remain in backward motion until July 10th, at 13° Scorpio. Bellow, I show you how Jupiter retrograde will affect your life, according to your zodiac sign:
Jupiter Retrograde for Aries
Having Jupiter retrograde transiting the eighth house, those born under the sign of Aries may forget the importance of being honest and sincere in their business partnerships. They want to be richer and they are ready to do whatever it takes, in order to win the money they need. But take care! Maybe some unethical and dishonest business practices can help you in the short term, but, in the long term, they bring a high level of stress and some collateral damages. And, when dishonesty is discovered, it ruins your reputation and your business. So, it is better to resist temptations and to remain honest.
Jupiter Retrograde for Taurus
With Jupiter moving backward in the house of marriage and relationships, things become more complicated, for Taurus. There is still love, but you may confront some of the most common relationship issues. Maybe you spend more time apart than together and you start feeling neglected. Or maybe you spend all your time together, letting no space for privacy and individual growth. Or maybe you argue over money. The most important thing is to recognize that you have a problem and to discuss it honestly.
Jupiter Retrograde for Gemini
When Jupiter is moving backward (like between March 8th and July 10th, this year), turns its energy of expansion inwards. During this period of time, inner growth becomes more important than ever. So, during this retrograde motion of Jupiter, Gemini has to discover practical ways to improve him, professionally. This involves, most of the time, getting out of the comfort zone. And the results will not occur overnight – actually, they will not occur until Jupiter goes direct again, in July. But this inner struggle and the effort made during Jupiter retrograde will be rewarded professionally, between July 10th and November 8th.
Jupiter Retrograde for Cancer
For those born under the sign Cancer, Jupiter retrograde affects love affairs and luck in gambling. Maybe is time to stop acting like a child when having a relation and to start assuming more responsibilities in couple. Psychologists assure us that the most important ingredient for creating a healthy relationship is emotional responsibility. The essential thing to do is to take responsibility for your own feelings and to stop making your partner responsible for your own happiness and emotional safety. He/she is only your spouse, a human like you, not the golden fish or the queen of the fairies!
Jupiter Retrograde for Leo
For Leo, the management of family relationships is one of the main tasks, during these four months. Problems between parents and children are common, but now is time to try to fix them. Improving your relationship with your parents will take time, effort from you and your parents, and a lot of patience. There are many differences between their generation and your generation – maybe the greatest differences in all the history of the world, caused by the technological development, which influenced our society and way of thinking. So, you have to accept that they will probably never fully understand you and your opinions. But these differences and the conflicts do not mean that you cannot stand to speak to one another. Make compromises, accept the differences and focus on the positive!
Jupiter Retrograde for Virgo
For Virgo, it is the proper time to achieve some communication skills. Being a good listener, cultivating empathy, being clear and concise in what you say are among the most important of them. There are some tricks that can help you to improve your communication skills. For example, watch body language. Lack of eye contact is often a sign of restlessness or impatience. Yawning or sighing are usually signs of mental or physical fatigue. Use yourself to say the other person’s name! Dale Carnegie says that, to every person, his or her name is the sweetest sound in any language. And he’s right.
Jupiter Retrograde for Libra
This year, Jupiter in Scorpio brings prosperity, for Libras. There is only one risk, when you start making a lot of money: you are inclined to spend a lot, as well. If you can control yourself from buying things you really don’t need, 2018 will be a great year, financially speaking! The greatest risk of overspending is between March 8th and July 10th, when Jupiter moves backward. So, don’t go to stores without a shopping list, don’t buy things just because they are on sale! Make price comparisons before buying expensive things and get used to deliberate and to wait before buying! Those tips will help you to survive to Jupiter retrograde in the second house. On the other hand, this position is the proper time to find out ways to make yourself even better at your job. Analyse your work style and you will surely discover that there is place for improvement.
Jupiter Retrograde for Scorpio
For Scorpio, Jupiter retrograde affects the vitality and the physical appearance. The message is to not waste your energy and to choose wiser how to use your time and your expertise. The golden rule of time management is to complete most important tasks first. Each day, identify the two or three tasks that are the most crucial to complete, and do those first!
It could also be a good time to get a new look. Maybe you will change your wardrobe or you will invest more in accessories that will provide you a great way to mix and match outfits. Changing your hairstyle is another option – but go only to the best hairstylist in the town!
Jupiter Retrograde for Sagittarius
For Sagittarius, Jupiter retrograde in the 12th house can bring some moments of solitude. It is a difficult period of time, when dark secrets and hidden enemies appear in your life. But this is also a good time for a spiritual life. There are many benefits of spiritual practice (meditation, praying, yoga etc.): it cultivates the attention required to complete your tasks; because spiritual people are more conscious of small, daily activities, they experience positive emotions associated with the smaller pleasures in life; comparing 160 people from different faiths, researchers found that increased religious spirituality was significantly linked to better mental health.
Jupiter Retrograde for Capricorn
For Capricorn, Jupiter retrograde will affect collective projects and relations of friendship. It is not the best time for working in groups or developing partnerships. But it is a good time to think about your personal freedom. Are you satisfied with how you allow yourself to express yourself? Or are you constantly looking for people’s approval? You need to understand your own limitations and your attachments. Remember what Buddha said: „The root of suffering is attachment“.
Jupiter Retrograde for Aquarius
During these four months, Aquarius men and women have to improve their professional skills, in order to fulfil their projects and their professional goals. Aquarius employees discover that they need to complete their studies and to expand their knowledge. So, between March and July 2018 it is a good time to take some college courses online, to participate in conferences and workshops, to read more (remember that all the billionaires are doing it!) and to try to become the best in your domain of expertise. In just two words: self-improvement. Or, if you like it better, personal development. Then, you will be able to create new goals for yourself, that are bigger and more daring than you would have previously thought possible.
Jupiter Retrograde for Pisces
For Pisces men and women, it is the proper time to re-evaluate their goals. There is no achievement without goals, but it is also important to set realistic goals and to work daily for reaching them. Otherwise, goals are nothing else than illusions. This is what Andrew Carnegie said: „If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes”. And, also, Pablo Picasso: „Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success“. So, what is your most important goal in life? Think about it!
