Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, slows down and turns backward from 10th April until 11th August 2019.
The planet of luck, expansion and growth is linked to the Wheel of Fortune, and the reversed aspect of this card offers us an insight into Jupiter‘s retrograde energies.
The first thing that comes to mind is that the Wheel of Fortune may slow down, come to a halt and perhaps even move backwards in the form of reversal of fortunes.
This can work both ways: if things have gone really well for you recently, then be prepared for a slow down.
On the other hand, if you’ve been experiencing bad luck or lack of progress beyond your control, then you might get a break and life is slowly going to take a turn for the better.
Whatever our individual situation, we may all feel less optimistic about things as new ideas and plans may not be realised, or progress may come slower than expected.
But Jupiter retrograde is happening in Sagittarius at this time, and in tarot terms that’s Temperance.
Temperance is the key to navigate Jupiter retrograde successfully – it’s okay to slow down, create balance and harmony, avoid too much, too soon and too difficult…. we need to learn to let good fortunes and progress flow into our lives whithout trying too hard.
Beneficial activities during Jupiter retrograde:
Take it easy, take a break, re-evaluate, open your mind to new possibilities, research new ideas, experiment, explore, be more flexible, listen to your inner voice.
