Jupiter Retrograde in Sagittarius

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?

Pluto Retrograde in Sagittarius

The Pluto Retrograde in Sagittarius starts on March 31st and ends September 7th, 2007. This is the second last Pluto retrograde in Sagittarius before Pluto moves into Capricorn in November 2008.

By now, we've either adjusted to Pluto's extreme makeovers in the area of our charts ruled by Sagittarius, or continue to struggle and resist growing. Over the next year and a half, we will get a few more chances to work with Pluto's deep, transformational energy. This retrograde period gives an opportunity to see where we still need to transform ourselves and our lives. We need to reflect on how we have transformed since 1995, asking ourselves what patterns and behaviors we need to shed in order to become more ourselves. It is also important to look at how we self-sabotage ourselves and do our best to take responsibility for the negative results of our actions. In August, Saturn will trine Pluto, setting the stage for us to potentially see powerful, concrete results and opportunities from all this inner work. How we choose to use the next year and a half of Pluto's stay in Sagittarius will have an affect on the next transformational phase we will be thrust into when Pluto moves into Capricorn. Now is a time for processing Pluto's lessons and letting go of what no longer fits the people we have become.
