Jupiter Retrograde

Jupiter Retrograde 2021

Jupiter retrograde transit is a regular cycle of four months duration, occurring every thirteen months. Transiting Jupiter retrograde is a time of philosophical and spiritual introspection and reflection. You could have to deal with particular issues involving growth and development, happiness, and success.

Jupiter retrograde means that whatever area of growth you need to work on is so important, extra time is needed to take stock and make sure everything in order before you continue. You may be tested to make sure you are ready to receive the good fortune, new romance, or increased wealth you seek.

Perhaps a destructive behavior like greed or addiction is out of control. In this case, Jupiter retrograde will offer a chance to recognize and admit the problem. Things may get so out of control that an intervention or some drastic event must occur to shake you out of your complacency or ignorance.

Once Jupiter stations direct you should have come to terms with the relevant issues and be ready to leap ahead toward success and happiness.

Natal Jupiter Retrograde

Jupiter retrograde natal suggests there was a problem in achieving goodness of the soul in an earlier life. This certainly does not mean you have a bad soul, but that there will be some lessons or extra effort required in this life to achieve goodness of the soul, to be genuinely happy and content.

Jupiter retrograde shows the areas of life, or the personality traits and behaviors, which specifically need extra development. The optimum Jupiter nature is broad-minded, happy, comfortable, and content. A healthy Jupiter is continually growing and expanding in a philosophical and spiritual outlook. The aim is to be charitable, generous, friendly, and welcoming to all people, regardless of social status, religion, cultural or ethnic background.

Natal Jupiter retrograde could show as greed, selfishness, gluttony, extravagance, wastefulness, or self-righteousness. Addiction, intolerance, bigotry, ignorance, or showing off might be holding you back. Whatever is stunting your personal and spiritual growth is what Jupiter retrograde focuses on. This could well have been an ongoing problem hindering success over many incarnations. Events or relationships will keep reinforcing the problem area this life, especially during Jupiter retrograde phases.

  1. My husband’s moon is 18′ Pisces(3rd house) and my Jupiter is 24′ Pisces(8th house)….wonder how this Jupiter retrograde will affect us. sounds like it’ll be a positive influence.

  2. Typo Jamie, Jupiter stations retrograde on June 20, 2021, at 23°11′ Pisces. I have Jupiter rx conjunct my IC, so its always been fairly active in my life since the beginning, often has me “addicted” to ancient history and especially their, spiritual and philosophical belief, exemplified, by having a 0″Cancer sun, in the 9th house. Anyway, I am very much hoping that the tiny signs of a change of fortune after many years of hardship, is definitely on the cards, especially having read this 🙂 I have experienced a couple of what can only be described as serendipity, being forced to move or change under incredibly difficult circumstances of late, one might even be considered cruel due to the selfishness of another from my perspective, and yet, although it looked like worst may about to be coming to the worst, again, I actually seem to have found myself in a better place, at least in myself, than I have for many years. Quite looking forward to celebrating my 60th Birthday on June 22nd, looks like I may have changed my stars after all, and actually do feel I have accomplished quite a lot, given what seemed to be wasting my life. Thanks, this helps me feel optimistic, yet not delusional, gotta love it !

    • Thank you for spotting that Debbie. I like that “addicted” to describe your Jupiter placement.

  3. Hello Jamie, thanks a lot for your analysis , but what about the nasty square to Pluto when Jupiter goes direct? You see , sun conjunct Mars square Pluto doesn’t seem to be easy. Furthermore, regarding the grand trine, unfortunately Mercury will still be square Neptune. As long as we have mercury around Neptune, all the positivity will fade into obscurity.

  4. Yeah, my boyfriend has his ascendant at 2° Pisces just like head cartel leader Pablo Emilio Escobar. Interesting times. I have moon sextile jupiter natally and sun conjunct jupiter natally. I need housing and an income. Hope these positive influences exacerbate my chart in the best way possible. Thank you!

  5. Hi Jamie,
    Jupiters direct station at 22.19 Aquarius is on top of my Chiron in the 5th, 22.46…..which sets up a grand square in my chart in fixed signs….Sun 22 Scorpio 2nd, Uranus 21 Leo 11th, Moon 21 Taurus 8th……sitting on top of Chiron, would that be an expansion, or coming to the surface of wounds, or the overcoming of those issues, and an expansion of inner dynamics, leading to letting go of the past?

  6. such a great post thanks for sharing jamie. looking for more planetary movement post which is happening on 22 june

  7. My friend’s sun moon midpoint is at 29 Aquarius, so I wonder if Jupiter retrograding over it will bring back an ex who broke up with her a few months ago since Jupiter rx going over the love-related sun moon midpoint can bring back an old face possibly

  8. Hi Debbie, Neptune on that day is at 23 degrees Pisces and Jupiter is indeed at 2 degrees 11 of Pisces. A little too much Netune tee hee. Do you by any chance have a Pisces ascendant? Because both would rule your chart and with both in Pisces – soooo easy to get confused. I know- I have a Pisces ascendant and am very much looking forward to Jupiter retrograde.

  9. Hopefully this means I will finally win the lottery! Lol. Jupiter currently in my 5th house.

  10. Ceremony in Egypt, EverGiven container ship sails out the Suez Canal. Uranus transits Cosmogenesis MC 14Tau00. Kind nudge today (7/7) to relook at the artwork posted originally at the Precession of the Equinoxes, October 31, 2019. A surprise to see how boldly this chart appear the last four weeks or so. Too busy looking forward and forgot to look back… until 3’s were bonging like fog horns.

      • Cosmogenesis is an astrology artwork. It is the third banana: the June 21, 2020 solar eclipse, Egypt, calculated from the first two bananas, January 12, 1996, Age of Aquarius and November 29, 2011, Regulus ingress Virgo Sign.

        It’s mentioned several times throughout the Astrologyking threads. The Earth let go the fishing line to the Age of Pisces that day, comet Neowise (C/2020 F3) made a farewell wave, aligning perigee and perhelion.

        The critical excitement was discovering how these three dates summed to 33 years. At the same time I was reading Paul A. LaViolette, “Genesis of the Cosmos”, so in it went. A new play. The team came on the field, ‘Surprise’.

        • The Age of Aquarius began on June 19th 1902. (Interesting that you have the June 21 solar eclipse, that is conjunct the star Pollux) There is a transitionary period which is now basically over, but officially it is June 19th 1902, according to the Great Teachers of our 5th Root-Race. It has deeply to do with the star Pollux, when the disc of the sun crossed the Galactic Equator and entered into the lunar mansion Punarvasu.

          It’s pretty obvious seeing the huge change and shift in the world during the last 120 years. The Internet, international travel, the world connecting and going beyond the boundaries of countries and globalizing, racial, sexual, and women’s right radically shifting. The beginning of the 20th century was also when air travel was first thought of. Marine travel was the most common during the 2160 year Piscean Age. I could go on but we’ve been in the Aquarian Age for over 100 years now, despite what so many New Agers speculate and concoct up as the date. H. P. Blavatsky brought the Mystery Schools to the public for the first time and the New Age and all its variations sprang up afterwards. Read the ancients and the wise beings who tell you to read the ancients. If you’d like a few articles from a very wise man who wrote all about the Aquarian Age and was arguably the most influential person in the 20th century:


          • Interesting. But did she proof it with birthday comets and ovaries? I think that’s what separates my social media collaborations versus her pamphlets, books and in person meetings. And I’m not published either. No book, celebrity interview or any of that. Rest easy everyone, my gender, age and cultural influences means you are safe. I will not show up at your underground church with Roman Centuriion business on my sword. Although I’ve lately mentioned to someone my art is ephemeral, Hunter Biden’s debt art will still require a wall in a building, presuming the building HAS a mortgage.

  11. “Mr. Zuma, 79, voluntarily surrendered on Wednesday, (July 7) 40 minutes before a midnight deadline for the police to hand him over to prison officials.” NYTimes

    “the veteran leader should be in the hands of prison authorities by midnight local time (22:00 GMT), having already refused to hand himself in on Sunday (July 4)” BBC

    We already know that astrology is important in understanding the Release of Mandela, so the arrest of Zuma would naturally fall under the same consideration, since these two shared 10 years in prison a long time ago.

    And of course Cosmogenesis is an Important chart to understanding Evergiven and Egypt, 7/7, in the North of Africa…

    Stands to reason there is a connection between the timing of the two? Quite a bit of reluctance to arrest Zuma. Perhaps someone working the astrological oppositions this time of year thought to provide a date to provoke a disturbance in order to justify policies of separation somewhere else? Real good astrologers aren’t cheap. What’s your Covid billable code?

  12. Its in my 5th house also…I guess I should buy a lottery ticket :-}

  13. Wow this has been quite strong in my life already. I have Natal Mercury conjunct the Jupiter Retrograde on Fomalhaut and when Jupiter stations direct, it is conjunct my Sun/Saturn conjunction on Nashira. Very interesting!

  14. It’s up to people under 33. The theatrics of the past 18 months has been put on for the Alice’s in Wonderland.

  15. Jupiter can make a person lucky. But, Saturn sets limits. So, when luck hints at fading, hone in on skills to offset Saturn. Saturn is the reason people become experts at what they do. Most days I have small delays. When Jupiter kicks in I have little interruptions or strings holding me back. But, when Saturn pops up I’m digging in to thwart possible reversals & annoying delays. Experience shovels away Saturn’s aspects.

  16. HI i was born during jupiter in aqua 22 direct how will this affect me . Also my daughter was born during a jupiter return her jupiter is also 22 deg aqua.Thanks in Advance.:)

  17. I’m honestly having anxiety about this. An astrologer friend told me I’m screwed come mid October essentially. I will have Jupiter trine my Sun at 22 degrees. I’ve read it’s the death degree. My friend said it’s going to be really bad for me, but I’m reading opposite on here I’m so confused and nervous

    • Hi Brittany. If there is a death degree it is based on nonsense. Planetary transits are a million times more powerful than some magic degree.
