Jupiter is in the sign of Libra between 13 and 23 degrees from the end of November, 2016 to October 2017. Jupiter will turn retrograde on February 6, 2017.

While Jupiter is direct, it offers opportunities and good luck when connected with the Sun especially by Sextile, Trine or Conjunction. When Jupiter is in Square or Opposition to the Sun, the opportunities are still present but you may have to push your way through some obstacles before you get the desired result. The only Planet that is adversely affected to any degree is Saturn.

Jupiter promises abundance and an optimistic approach to any projects that are undertaken while in direct motion. It provides you with the sense that no matter what way you turn the outcome has potential. The main problem with Jupiter in direct motion is overindulgence and a feeling that nothing can go wrong.

When Jupiter moves into retrograde motion beginning on February 6, 2017 and ending on June 9, 2017, Jupiter sometimes denies the luck and abundance that is mostly apparent during the direct motion. It still provides an ability to achieve what you have set out to do, but not without some work on your part. Its energies are similar to that of Saturn during retrograde motion, potentially putting up roadblocks and barriers to cross before achievement is possible. It suggests that you do the work required to put something in motion and that it may take a little longer for you to succeed than anticipated. In some cases things begin to move forward once the retrograde cycle is over. Jupiter’s stationary position will be the most powerful.

It is not advisable to move forward on a new project while Jupiter is retrograde but you can still achieve if it is something that is already in motion before the retrograde cycle begins.

When Transiting Jupiter is making an aspect to the Sun in your natal chart, you may feel so good about life’s plans that you feel as though you could just sit back and let life lead. This is much more possible with the sextile than with the trine but it would be a much better idea to work on moving forward as this is an opportune time to make things happen, especially if Jupiter is in direct motion. Do not waste the opportunity by sitting back and letting!

You may find that you feel quite healthy and even robust during this period. Watch for putting on weight, and remember Jupiter expands all that it touches. Set yourself up with an exercise program that you can follow and watch what you eat; be healthy. Your energies might be higher than normal and you may find that you are more inclined to want to go for hikes, and attend sporting events, either as a spectator or actually participating.

If Jupiter is square the Sun, this is still an opportune time although you may feel restrained and tested during this period. If you put forth the extra work efforts, however, you can still achieve what you set out to do.

Watch for any feelings of over optimism or extravagance as spending can be a problem under this influence. You may regret what you do under this influence so make sure that you are thinking in long terms and review the results of your plans before taking action.

The opposition is usually suggestive of other people setting things in motion and in some way affecting you. Watch for the carefree husband or wife that goes on a spending spree and you as their spouse might even encourage this. They may be the ones making suggestions that are a little extravagant and out of proportion for what your needs might actually be.

In general, this will be an opportune time even when transiting Jupiter makes challenging aspects to the Sun as well as when it is retrograde. Take advantage of these energies. Remember your Sun can be within 4 degrees either side of Jupiter’s degree throughout its transit and its energies will still be in effect. When Jupiter is direct to the Sun (same degree), the energies are the strongest.
