More detail about Jupiter retrograde 2022 follows some general information on Jupiter retrograde in transit. Information about Jupiter retrograde in the natal chart can be found at the end of this article.

Jupiter Retrograde Transit

Jupiter retrograde is a regular cycle of four months duration, occurring every thirteen months. It 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 encourages you to look inward to discover what makes you happy. It is time to think about your future. The focus is on your spiritual and material growth; on how to be the best person you can be. You may be tested to ensure you are ready to receive the good fortune, ideal relationship, or increased wealth you seek.

Perhaps a destructive behavior like greed or addiction is out of control. In this case, opportunities will arise 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 advance toward success and happiness.

But because of the relative orbits of Jupiter and the Sun, Jupiter always stations retrograde and direct trine the Sun within a six-degree orb. So The luckiest planet in astrology also has the most fortunate retrograde phase.

Sun trine Jupiter brings enthusiasm, self-confidence, happiness, generosity and good fortune. There will be opportunities for personal, spiritual, and material growth. Business, studies, travel, the law, religion and spiritual practices can lead to greater self-understanding, knowledge, wealth, and a broader outlook on life.

Jupiter Retrograde 2022

Jupiter stations retrograde on Thursday, July 28, 2022, at 08°43′ Aries. Sun trine Jupiter is common to all Jupiter retrogrades as mentioned earlier. But this year, there is a new moon only two and a half hours before Jupiter stations retrograde. So there is a double whammy going on here. The New Moon is linked to Jupiter Retrograde by its closeness in time and by the trine aspect.

The New Moon in Leo coinciding with Jupiter retrograde makes you focused on your future happiness and prosperity. It is excellent for setting goals, making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, and starting new projects.


Intuition and Self-Belief

Moon trine Jupiter brings good feelings, happiness, emotional growth and self-understanding. It makes it easier to share your feelings. You should be more creative, imaginative and intuitive. You may experience prophetic dreams or “feelings.” Meditation, religion or spiritual practices will help grow your subconscious abilities and give you self-belief and faith in your future.

Intimate relationships will benefit from openness and honesty. New and influential relationships are possible and will be based on genuine qualities. Mutual respect and understanding can lead to very successful personal and business partnerships.

Increased generosity and morality make Jupiter retrograde 2022 ideal for helping those less fortunate than yourself. You can also attract generosity and wealth, gain wide support for your chosen cause, and enlist the help of influential or even famous people.

The Constellations

Jupiter stations retrograde in the Sign of Aries. But as the star map below shows, it is actually in the Constellation of Pisces. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago. The Signs were originally invented only as a measuring device. Astrologers had always used the visible constellation and their stars for astrological interpretation.


Although Jupiter retrograde 2022 is in Pisces Constellation, it most closely aligns with a star in Pegasus Constellation. Fixed star Algenib, Gamma Pegasi, is located at 09°28′ Aries (Jupiter Retrograde is at 08°43′ Aries.)

The Winged Horse

Constellation Pegasus gives ambition, vanity, intuition, enthusiasm, caprice and bad judgment. Prevails against diseases of horses and preserves horsemen in battle. [1] The constellation portends events concerning ships and the ocean and also changes in the weather. [2]

Fixed star Algenib gives notoriety, dishonor, violence, and misfortune, and denotes the naked and poor professional beggar. [1]

Algenib brings a penetrating mind and a strong will, as well as determination, an impressive way of speaking and a gift for oratory. [3]

Jupiter conjunct Algenib: Hypocrisy, financial success, real or pretended religious enthusiasm. [1]

Jupiter Direct 2022

Natal Jupiter Retrograde

Jupiter retrograde natal suggests there may have been a problem being happy and successful in a previous life. There will be some lessons or extra effort required in this life so you can become truly happy and content.

The aspect to Jupiter and any fixed star conjunctions will help describe the areas of life or the personality traits and behaviors that need extra development. The optimum Jupiter nature is broad-minded, happy, comfortable, and content. A healthy Jupiter continually grows and expands in philosophical and spiritual outlook. The aim is to be charitable, generous, friendly, and welcoming to everyone, regardless of social status, religion, cultural or ethnic background.

Natal Jupiter retrograde could cause 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 you must focus on. This could well have been an ongoing problem hindering success over many incarnations. Events or relationships will reinforce this life’s problem area, especially when Jupiter is transiting retrograde.

  1. Jupiter rx natal, has proven to me, the additional power, passion and courage to explore and understand the vast far reaching ever unfolding nature of inner space, equal to those who are not Jupiter rx thus have more so to explore and understand the vast far reaching ever unfolding nature of outer space. Of course there is an equal need to be open to a more broad minded understanding of the truth of my inner space and be able to keep a grip on the understanding reached of that inner quest, in order to not losing ones bearings in outer space, and vice versa, this is also where astrology, helps map out that inner realm, as it does the outer. May be Im a bit over the top with this, because of the placements and aspects affecting my natal blueprint, but it is mine to work with, so it has been worth the effort to learn to understand myself and how that wisdom applies to my self and my life, in doing so my way. Ones personal beliefs, whether in the known or unknown, requires either trust in the known or faith in the unknown, in support of an affirmative belief in oneself and acting in good conscience/will/faith. Obviously if we believe more in what we fear and hate, that will be our self fulfilling prophecy, if we believe more in what we hope and love,that will be our self fulfilling prophecy. C’est la vie.

  2. Pisces 28 degrees sabian. A fertile garden under a full moon.There is inner power in Pisces 28… and all of the Mutable 28 degree symbols. But it is a power connected to the earth, to life, and it does not follow conceived plans.

    If Pisces 25 is a purging, Pisces 28 is the aftermath of being mowed down.

  3. Very good summary, Astro King. Given that it’s happening in the astrology sign of Pisces, at least in Sidereal, I would think that addiction, drugs/poisons, delusion, imagination, fantasy, spirituality (as opposed to religion, although obviously connected) and compassion, in the broadest sense, will be the focus. However, Jupiter also holds sway over politics and the law – some hidden dealings in those areas will come into the light. Personally, Jupiter went retro while conjunct my sun (+/- 2′). Oh, boy!
