Jupiter Stations Retrograde today until August 11.
It will return to the same degree on November 6th 2019. During the Retrograde period it’s time to expand inner vision, and gain experience and wisdom from more esoteric processing. Mind travels and soul searching can be very prosperous at this time. It’s the inner truth that carries more weight, and can support growth and spiritual development. Any project or goal that has been activated from January until now, needs to be re- judged and re-confirm or even shift its purpose and mission in light of new information, gained experience or understanding. It’s time to find our guru within and ask the big questions. A time to regain inner faith, review our understanding, ethos and opinions, or process how our social environment resonates with our dogma, knowledge and sense of justice. Does this goal or that goal serve our inner fulfilment or advancement? In the sign of Sagittarius this process has the capacity to expand our spiritual cognition, show us new directions, present opportunities to fine tune our inner moral compass while it helps us gain inner perspective of which beliefs are really worth fighting or aiming for. We can feel we can cross boundaries in our understanding of things and expand our inner dialogue by pondering on what significance our experiences have in sharing viewpoints with others.
As Jupiter Stations, it is opposite the Moon in Gemini and squaring Mercury in Pisces forming a Mutable T-square configuration. The need to share opinions, beliefs and ideology, even speak about ethos, personally or collectively is heightened. How does this reflect in other’s responses, how has it affected our sense of belonging, did we feel a strong need to speak about things that really matter? As we voiced opinions and shared them with others in the past few days, we may have noticed a tension between “what I mean and what I say” and a kind of discourse taking place that needs refining. Questions revolve around what is meaningful. There is an opportunity now to reflect on the rights and wrongs, or perhaps think about how our ‘truths’ and idealism need some adjusting or present tensions that need some sort of resolution when we are casually engaging in dialogue. More wisdom is to be gained from this process.
It is certainly a time to tune into the things that we believe in, on a spiritual level but also get a heightened awareness or reflect on revelations on what others think. We may ponder on a quest to promote ideas and knowledge and become aware that we need to do some some shifting, and some appropriations. Whatever the mission it has variety, flexibility and can take one to new territories. During the Retrograde period, create space for this to happen, flourish, and return to the knowledge that was previously gathered to lay better plans that will carry yourself or a project further and support its betterment. Share more openly and honestly, and refrain from dogmatism as it may get blown a little out of proportion. At times being hospitable to other’s point of view may have an educational effect to our understanding. If you have planets @ 23-24 Sagittarius this may be a very revealing time for you, manifesting through challenges in your understanding and philosophy of life.
