Jupiter Retrograde

Jupiter Retrograde

In a general sense, at first glance, Jupiter sounds like an alright planet. The Greater Benefic, that implies it’s...well, beneficial, right? Kind of. This planet rules higher truths, wisdom, law, teaching, expansion, and risk taking. Cast in this “bringer of abundance” light- yeah, I don’t know, don’t ask me to explain woo-speak. I can translate it but I don’t get it, either. Jupiter may seem a pretty great planetary influence both in a natal chart and in transit. Jupiter is a very long game kinda player: spending roughly a year and a half in each sign. So, give or take, about 12 years to go full circle. Thing is, it depends on what sign it’s hanging out in and how that interacts with the rest of things. For instance, if I tell you that Jupiter is “in its fall” in Capricorn: jeez, that sounds bad, doesn’t it? You have big dreams, plans for expansion meets a Saturn ruled sign renowned for plotting, planning, and discipline. Do the math. Astrology is like math, psychology, astronomy and psychology had an orgy, so yes, you have to. No one's taken it on Maury, yet.

Ruling both Sagittarius and the 9th House in astrology, you might imagine Jupiter is a bit of a flaky, pretentious douche. It’s also exalted in Cancer, so you might want to add emotional to the list. So, imagine Jupiter, sitting there, weeping as it tries to explain existentialism to you but then, deciding you’re too stupid to understand and wandering off.

The Retrograde

Jupiter’s retrograde transit happens right around every 13 months. It will have about 3 months leading up to the retrograde station itself- known colloquially as the “Shadow”. Then, it stations retrograde for about 4 months, 2 days. After that, 3 months of still feeling the impact a bit here and there. Those times before and after are actually when the planet is “stationing”. That is, it's “going in” and “going out” of retrograde station itself.

To guild the turd a bit, it shows you where your excess and greed might be a little out of control. It can also illuminate those areas where you’re a bit less the doer than you ought to be. That said, it will also point out where you have been leaping before you look. It does so by stalling out some awesome shit you were working on, or having it implode in your face. In respect to “a little out of control”, you get to see how your delivery habit has over drafted the crap out of you. Things like that. Like all retrograde cycles, this is cast as “external challenges to help aid in beautiful opportunities for inner growth” which, when translated: you’re going to find out where you need to get your shit together. Where excess might be an issue or what you might be doing that completely derailed your start up, project, budget or whatever. As in, everything expansive blows up in your face or absolutely crawls and hits a wall.

This gives you the opportunity to reflect on quite a bit, but may also lead to some unhealthy coping mechanisms.

Kp Index Prediction
Solar Activity
Solar activity reached moderate levels. Region 2891 (N19E72, Cao/beta) produced an M1 flare (Minor) radio blackout at 26/1557 UTC, as well as several C-class flares. Region 2887 (S27E12, Dhi/beta-gamma) produced the vast majority of the remainder of the flares throughout the period, the strongest being a C8/Sf flare at 27/0608 UTC. The remaining four numbered regions on the visible disk were mostly inactive and unchanged. Several CMEs were observed in Lasco coronagraph imagery, but they were all directed in an easterly direction or away from the Earth. No Earth-directed CMEs were observed in available coronagraph imagery.
Solar Wind
Solar wind parameters continued near background levels. Total field strength averaged near 5 nT and the Bz component had a maximum southward deflection briefly to -4 nT. Solar wind speeds began the period under 350 km/s before increasing slightly to average just under 400 km/s around the turn of the UT day. Phi was predominantly in a negative solar sector.
Energetic Particle
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux was at normal to moderate levels and the greater than 10 MeV proton flux was at background levels.
