Jupiter Goes Retrograde: Revisit Meditation

Just as I was getting ready for my "Fresh Start For Fall" campaign, I found out that Jupiter is in retrograde.

I thought I would focus on getting out and getting busy in the invigorating east coast Autumn season.  Instead, because of the retrograde, I discovered that this is a great time to slow down and take stock of what’s going on in your life. Explore your personal philosophy and spirituality.


A planet is described as retrograde when it appears to be moving backwards through the zodiac. This traditional concept arises in the illusory planetary motion created by the orbital rotation of the earth, with relation to other planets in our solar system. It's a bit like traveling on the road watching another car beside you: when the other car slows down, or you speed up, it looks as though the other car is moving backwards. So planets are never actually retrograde or stationary, they just seem that way, due to this optical illusion.  When Jupiter turns retrograde, the action of Jupiter is reversed so that the emphasis is upon inner awareness and inner growth.

The best mode to be in during a retrograde is one of "non-reaction", and with earth signs being impacted, physical environment will be changing continually during a retrograde. Treat the time period as a time of gathering information, yet because the information will be in constant change it would be like trying to comb your hair in a wind storm. Best to wait until the changes stop before attempting to make things orderly. Therefore, just let the winds of situations blow around you without reacting. Once the retrograde turns direct, take a look at the information that is still around at that time and go about putting everything in order, while maintaining the fine art of flexibility.

After some soul searching you may find that you’ve made less time for yourself and skipped meditation periods.  Jupiter retrograde will help you revisit your meditation practice and get it going again. You may also find that you develop an even better method of incorporating it in your life.
