There’s a lot going on with respect to retrogrades in 2020, and by that, I mean that we now have four retrograde planets at once (and one more along the way). But of all the planetary backspins taking place this spring, Jupiter retrograde 2020 is probably the easiest to live with in the group.
After having started its reversal on May 14 in Capricorn, it will continue until September 12, which means that we officially commit to four months of personal review and deep dive into the waters of the parts of our life governed by Jupiter, which includes growth, abundance, knowledge, idealism, and expansion of all kinds.
Expect to go out on the other side with some changes in your belief system.
Jupiter is considered the luckiest of all the planets, generally bringing good fortune and optimism to everything it touches. However, planetary retrogrades almost always have their challenges, so some signs may still experience more intense growing pains.
If you’ve been working on accomplishing something great with no real structure or plan to make it happen, retrograde Jupiter will be the time to step back to look at the big picture and how you’re going to approach it. It doesn’t necessarily mean a loss; it’s more about working smart and directing your actions along the most profitable and fortuitous lines.
This retrograde could prove to be particularly difficult for some of the cardinal signs of the zodiac due to the fact that Jupiter retrograde through Capricorn (the cardinal earth sign), which is the area where it is the least comfortable and the most restricted.
Jupiter is considered to be at its ‘fall’ in Capricorn, which means that it is in a weak position and that its energy can be more difficult to work with.
With Jupiter in Capricorn, the focus is on building a solid foundation for your highest goals and approaching your dreams with the necessary work ethic, so this retrograde could lead us to revise the way we choose to get it right.
Look at the zodiac signs that Jupiter retrograde 2020 will affect the most, and be prepared for deep changes if you are one of them:
This retrograde hits the career sector of your chart, Aries, so you are about to reassess your life path and your line of work, which can seem intimidating. Retrograde Jupiter will force you to slow down and take a closer look at your situation than you are used to, especially when it comes to your career.
While it is difficult to pump the brakes and proceed cautiously in your professional life, it is a necessary step to align yourself with the type of career you really want, and you will emerge from this retrograde with much more clarity on how to move forward.
With Jupiter retrograding in the partnership area of your chart, you may need to do some revisions regarding the dynamics between you and your partner. Jupiter will force you to take stock of what works in relationships and what doesn’t work, and you will have to work without your rose-colored glasses.
It doesn’t mean that a relationship will end. Things will be more positive in the fall. Spend the next few months trying to be more open to learning more about you and your partner, and how best to support each other.
Although things have been fairly stable in your personal life, you may find that Jupiter’s backspin pushes you into a deep search for soul regarding your foundations and the spaces you call home. Your family life and your basic foundations will be affected by this retrograde.
Things may not go as planned, and you may need to make changes or manage certain types of household expenses. While dealing with drama in your family life is never fun, remember that change can be a good thing. Think about it when facing the storm.
