Jupiter Turns Retrograde: Swimming In The Sea

Jupiter retrograde, Jupiter Pisces


The planet of opportunity, Jupiter, has been in its second sign of rulership Pisces since May 13, 2021. This weekend on June 20, 2021, Jupiter switches direction in the zodiac and turns retrograde.

Jupiter’s literally dipped its toe into Pisces as it only reached 2 degrees of the star sign and will move back into Aquarius on July 28, 2021

A Whoosh of Pisces

When a big planet turns retrograde, its energy is intensified. This may be especially true now as Neptune, Pisces’ co-ruler, also turns retrograde in Pisces next weekend on June 25, 2021. We’re currently surfing through Pisces’ waters and it feels deeply emotional.

Whether the drink is flowing, your fantasy life is flourishing, your dreams are epic, you’ve dedicated your life to service or sacrifice, you’ve fallen head over heels in love, you’re exploring the cosmos, you’re penning poetry, making music or art, now’s the time to deeply honour this whoosh of Pisces’ energy and seek more beauty, wonder and magic in your life.

Jupiter is the planet of higher knowledge, learning, travel, linked to publishing, religion, the law and philosophy. It’s where you find meaning and purpose in your life and, at its best, is a symbol of truth.

Retrograde Planets

Traditionally, with retrograde planets, the focus turns inward and it’s time for you to slow down the pace, reflect and review what’s happened so far.

Then, you can gather strength and ideas for the next wave of Jupiter’s forward-moving motion.

As Jupiter is the planet of opportunity, it’s an ideal time to sow seeds up until July 28, 2021 that can be harvested in early January 2022

Jupiter returns to Pisces on December 29, 2021. Use this timing to plan ahead in your own life. 

Also, as Jupiter is the planet linked to providence and good fortune, this means you get another pick at the cherry.

If you have key planets or angles in your natal chart between 0-2 degrees Pisces, Jupiter pays them a second visit between now and the end of July, and a third visit in January 2022. Second chances, even third chances abound.
