Jupiter has been retrograde in Scorpio since March 4th and will finally move forward this week. I've really been feeling this retrograde as Jupiter is one of my ruling planets. It also doesn't help that during the retrograde Jupiter opposed my sun and squared Saturn (both transitting and natal). So for the past few months it has felt as if Saturn took over things. Sure, I learned a lot, became more disciplined with my work, and realized where I need more discipline in my life. But the whole entire time, any attempts I made to move forward felt as if I were banging my head against a brick wall. Not my favorite hobby.
However, I did notice an interesting pattern between Jupiter and my freelance writing income. I checked back over my financial records (my sun in the 6th makes me do these things), and my income dried up whenever Jupiter turned retrograde and flowed when direct. This year was no different, as far as the drying up part goes. We'll see how the flow goes.
Needless to say, I'm very happy to have my pal Jupiter back from his nap (Um, in case you think I have lost my mind, I have. That's what banging your head on a brick wall will do).
