Transiting Jupiter Now Direct

Transiting Jupiter went into retrograde motion on December 8, 2014, and stayed in retrograde until April, 2015. It moved as far as 22 degrees into the sign of Leo and then was in retrograde as far back as 12 degrees of the same sign. You can use an orb of 3-4 degrees when determining if this had affected any of your planets or important points in your natal chart. As it crossed these placements, the energy of Jupiter was increased.

Jupiter has now moved direct once again and its positive expansiveness is now considered to be alive and well.

Under normal conditions Jupiter is known as the great benefactor, but it is said that when it moves into retrograde these characteristics seem to fade and its normal opportunistic input is felt on an inner level while on the material side of things, its energies are less effective. It is suggested that if you are in the mind frame of buying property or big luxury items that you wait until it had moved direct again. That time is now.

When a planet moves into retrograde, its impact is felt on an inner level. During the past retrograde cycle, you may have benefited greatly if you had focused on inner growth and awareness. Getting in touch with yourself and objectively viewing yourself making alterations along the way would have been very beneficial.

Jupiter is the planet of expansion and is connected to spirituality and the philosophies of life that have deep meaning. If you have a look at the house Jupiter is transiting through as well as the house it is located in your natal chart, these will be areas of life that you can do work on and transform in ways that will suit you better now that Jupiter is direct again. A time of introspection was highlighted when retrograde and should have been viewed on a positive note. That was a time to make adjustments to the way you were living your life in order to transform your life’s direction. This would have put you on track for where you should be going now.

This transit of Jupiter will be closely connected to the lessons that are required at this time in life. Make sure that you are honest with yourself and you can re-examine truths and gage these with a keen eye. Decide what you want to change and what is worthy of keeping. These are often aspects of yourself that need some tweaking, in turn creating a higher version of yourself and allowing you to be ready to move in your intended direction. Look inside yourself and find those inner riches.

If you are making plans to go into a business venture, make sure that you take the time to consider all the aspects connected to making this decision. You may have made great expenditures during the time when Jupiter was retrograde. The affect of this may show up now. Now that Jupiter is direct it is more beneficial to make these. Always ensure that you are viewing these contacts with clarity and watch for expanded optimism.

Now that Jupiter has gone back into direct motion (which was on April the 8th) and is making aspects to other planets in your natal chart, you can gauge what areas of life might be affected and the potential outcome of actions now that Jupiter is direct. Jupiter is a very positive influence in your life and will enhance most experiences, especially when linked to higher forms of activity.
