Jupiter Retrograde in Sagittarius

Jupiter stations Retrograde in Sagittarius on April 10, 2019 at 1:02 pm ET.

Now Jupiter goes Retrograde, which brings us into a more reflective period. Observing our past to learn from the lessons and the wisdom that has been gained through history will be increasingly important.

Jupiter in Sagittarius signifies a more philosophical perspective to find deeper meaning for our lives. If you’ve been feeling like you haven’t been moving in the right direction to expand your experience of life, getting in tune with your vision is recommended. If you haven’t made a vision board, this would be a good time to review, reflect and reconsider what you really want to do with your life so you can live with purpose.

Immigration and issues of race have become even bigger topics with Jupiter in Sagittarius, of course. Now we get to look back at what has been happening and develop wiser perspectives. Jupiter in Sagittarius speaks to media, knowledge and information that is spread far and wide. Jupiter wants the truth, but bias and subjective opinion and beliefs have definitely been getting in the way of objective reality. Jupiter Retrograde can bring in the reality checks necessary to get closer to the real truth.

Jupiter in Sagittarius also speaks to institutions of higher learning. With Jupiter in Sagittarius we have also seen the unethical practices of the rich and famous getting special treatment with university admissions. Perhaps we will see justice and karma prioritized with Jupiter Retrograde now, to deal with what’s been happening.

In terms of learning for your own life, this can be a great time to get into reading more on the subjects that interest you most. You may wish to reflect on the possibility of going back to school, or taking classes that will bring more meaning and satisfaction to your life.

Beliefs are likely to be reconsidered and changed while Jupiter is Retrograde. A whole new perspective on life is likely to shift what you believe about our larger reality.

Jupiter Retrograde in Sagittarius also speaks strongly to History and what we can learn from the past.  Just as Jupiter in Sagittarius speaks to institutions of higher learning, it also speaks to potential changes for religious institutions, churches, temples and the like.

We could see more issues of travel with Jupiter in Sagittarius, especially long distance travel and air travel.

If you have fears about other cultures, are scared to travel because of culture shock, this could be a good time to have a look at where those fears are rooted. Trying exotic cuisines, clothes and jewelery from foreign cultures can teach you a lot and open you up to greater understanding of the uniqueness and beauty the larger world has to offer. Getting to understand beliefs, customs and interpretations from around the world is recommended to help bring you greater understanding of people and places. This would be a great time to enjoy watching episodes of House Hunters International. I love that show!

Jupiter is the ancient ruler of Pisces. The Modern ruler of Pisces is Neptune. With Jupiter Retrograde we will see a revamp of beliefs. What you may believe to be true could be challenged by different information giving you an all new perspective on life. Sometimes it’s hard to let go of long held beliefs that have become a part of our identity and views on life, but prioritizing the truth will help you gain the insights that really matter most.

Now that spring is here and summer is on its way, this would be a great time to take some time to enjoy wide open spaces and get in touch with the energy of the world around you. Grabbing your camera and having some me time would be a great idea!

Jupiter is in Sagittarius from November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019.

Jupiter is stationing Retrograde at 24 degrees of Sagittarius on April 10, 2019, and will go direct again at 14 degrees of Sagittarius on August 11, 2019. If you have any planets in your natal chart that are in these degrees this period can be especially relevant for your life changes.

Uranus in Taurus

Uranus in Taurus stations Direct on January 10, 2020 at 8:49 pm ET.

Uranus is in Taurus from March 6, 2019 to April 5, 2026.

The last time Uranus was in Taurus was in June 1934 to May 1942.

Taurus is largely about having a relationship with the material world. Taurus says, “I Want” and Uranus in Taurus says, “I Want Freedom.”

Just as identity became most paramount when Uranus was in Aries, now with Uranus in Taurus it’s all about unexpected changes and surprises with money and material world. Will we see a financial revolution? People will definitely have a stronger desire for financial freedom, which could in turn have us all take a much closer look at the issues in the financial system that have been holding us back from experiencing that freedom!

We could also see a shift in the economy where individuals will put more focus on manifesting their own business to generate an income and work on their own terms.

Uranus entering Taurus just when Mercury is Retrograde in Pisces as the seed moment of our new Uranus and Taurus situation, indicates there could be a lot of confusion about money in the long term. We could see unanticipated developments in the financial world, fast changes, glitches, quick maneuvers and misinformation. Are you uninformed about money?

Also, be aware that Uranus is considered to be the Higher Octave of Mercury so swift changes and developments in communications, thoughts and ideas are emphasized.

As an earth sign, the nature and the environment is important to Taurus. Rebellious Uranus could see much talk and protests about environmentalism and climate change. 

Venus is the ruler of Taurus, and is about what you want and attract into your life, and what you value of which money is highly symbolic. 

Money is a concept of the mind. It is an idea. It’s all numbers and agreements of value. Uranus in Taurus is all about the mindset of what is valued. We know that the stock market is highly volatile due to the mindset of the masses. New information that arises in the news can sweep big changes in the markets instantly because it comes down to what people believe the future holds. So, being mindful and being aware of your own feelings towards money, how money works, and your mindset can make a big difference in how you associate to finances.

Gold, silver and precious metals are a great way to consider money as being a physical thing in the real world. However, the value of these commodities is still dependent on what we agree on how the value is measured, reflected in fluctuating prices. The value of money is always relative to our perceptions.

Income, homes, fiat currency and the way the world is run on debt is going to become an issue for consideration and debate. Issues of inflation and deflation are on the horizon. It would be wise to get your financial security in order.

At various points, depending on the shifting mindset of the collective, we could see quick reactions to financial shifts and potentially a run on banks.

We could also see stronger implementation of technology in the world of finance and cryptocurrencies taking root.

Artificial intelligence and technologies will become more strongly embedded in our material world with Uranus in Taurus.

Innovations, scientific breakthroughs and technological advances in environment and biology will get more attention. Bionics, genetic engineering and bio-technologies are highly likely to push us into the future. New understandings of life on earth and our place in the universe are also indicated.

Also consider Pluto and Saturn in fellow earth sign Capricorn speaks to transformation and struggle in the political and business affairs and major changes to the established order of society. While Jupiter in Sagittarius puts greater emphasis on worldwide affairs, beliefs, and the rule of law.

For the Taureans in your life especially, this can seem like a time to be rebellious regarding one’s own identity and to feel free to march to the beat of their own drum. Finances and security are likely to be a strong factor in determining significant changes in self perception.

Taurus is about value of material possessions and can be quite stuck, stubborn and bull headed, while Uranus wants to feel free, and to make choices on his own terms. This dichotomy could see hoarders and misers break free from being tied down to materialism and uplifted by clearing out old habits and patterns. Minimalism could become a new, popular approach more people find appealing to appreciate and value what one has with a freer perspective.

No matter what your sign, pay attention to your inspirations and ideas about the things you want to manifest in life during this period. Ideas and concepts that come to you out of the blue, especially your most creative, inventive ideas, could be brilliant enough that they could change your future and have an impact on the material world.

Uranus will be in Taurus until April 25, 2026

Pluto in Capricorn

Pluto is in Capricorn from January 25, 2008 to November 19, 2024.

Capricorn is associated with establishment and structure and the higher goals one wishes to achieve in life. It is reputation, leadership and climbing that mountain to reach the highest summit. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which is also in Capricorn now.

Though, in political terms the established rules and policies of larger society are top consideration, in our bodies, Capricorn rules the bones and thus the spine as well. So, on a personal level, do take extra care of your body’s structure during this time. Foods high in calcium are recommended, but I would recommend learning more about Vitamin D and Vitamin K2 in relation to calcium.

Strength training of your back is highly recommended. Pay more attention to your  posture when sitting and standing. Stretch and ensure you are going through ranges of motion so you have more limber flexibility of movement as well. As always, I recommend yoga of course. This can be a great time to remove toxins from your body as Pluto is concerned with purging.

This is also a good time to consider how you have not been achieving your goals and to remove/purge negativity from your life that is keeping you from reaching those higher aims. What have you been putting off, or how have you not been leading your life effectively in the direction you really want? Consider how you need to change so you can be a more powerful leader in your own life so you can achieve bigger goals that matter to you. This is a time of self awareness and facing facts about your life and your relationship to the world around you.

When it comes to your individual power, this is a time to look at how you are being an author of your own life. Each of us need to look at what isn’t working and decide what it is we each want to manifest in the world. What you may have thought you wanted for a long time could changing significantly putting you on a completely different path.

Capricorn is associated to Capitalism. Pluto in Capricorn is the destruction of capitalism in many regards, as a process of transformation in political and business power in the world.

Pluto in Capricorn is largely concerned with the transformation of politics, power and shifts in the business world. Pluto is concerned with wealth and so of course is associated to finance and banking structures and systems in Capricorn. All earth signs are concerned with the realm of materialism, the physical material world and thus of course money. See Uranus in Taurus.

Pluto can be highly destructive to what is established as it forces change to even a seemingly apocalyptic level. Pluto wants the truth, and will ensure all kinds of dirt and dirty deeds from behind the scenes is dug up so truth is revealed. All sorts of corruption in politics and business is sure to come out in the open. We could see a lot of leadership issues come up and a powerful transformation of the political landscape throughout the world. A dismantling and crumbling of the long held authority, power structures and hierarchy systems in the world is likely to cause dramatic changes internationally.

Pluto in Capricorn can bring many revelations awakening people to a completely changed perception of reality.

Astrologically, Pluto is considered to be the higher octave of Mars, and Pluto is the Roman equivalent of the Greek Hades.

Lots of battles of egos and power are certainly in the crosshairs. All of the issues we’ve been seeing with the conflicts in the media and power, with protests and people seeking the truth, have been a convoluted mess leaving people unsure of who and what to believe anymore.

The structure of our society is changing. The ego and competitiveness take a strong lead towards the transformation of our world.
