On April 6th, Jupiter turns retrograde in Sagittarius and moves forward again on August 8th. When Jupiter retrogrades, it can feel like all the air has been let out of the party balloons. This year it will feel more like a much needed respite, as Jupiter is kicking it in his own crib and can finally recover from squaring off with Saturn last year. Saturn is trining Jupiter this year (next one taking place around May 6th) which is as gentle as Saturn gets.
This is a good time for reassessing our goals, thinking about what we would like to expand in our lives, and seeking out ways to create more balance. Without Jupiter providing his usual mojo, it also serves as a reminder to ask ourselves WWSD? (What Would Saturn Demand) In other words, figuring out what structures we need to create in our lives so that we can sustain our freedom and growth. What limits do we need in our lives to be truly free and fulfilled?
