Jupiter Retrograde – 14th of May to 12 September 2020

Jupiter is retrograde approximately every 13 months for about 4 months. When Jupiter is retrograde, it appears to be moving backward from our perspective on earth.

During the Jupiter retrograde, we tend to go back over matters associated with the natal house that Jupiter is transiting. Our feelings of optimism, enthusiasm, growth, and desire for expansion in these areas of our lives are likely to come under review during the Jupiter retrograde phase. This often leads to a review of our personal moral and ethical codes.

Sensitive natal degrees for the 2020 Jupiter retrograde

If you have natal planets or chart angles at 16° to 18° or 26° to 28° of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries or Leo, they will be making hard aspects (conjunction, square, or opposition) to the station retrograde and station direct degrees. You may find that this Jupiter retrograde affects you more than most people. The natal planet and the natal house it is in will give you some idea of what you may expect. 

If you have natal planets or chart angles at  16° to 18° or 26° to 28° of Virgo, Pisces, Taurus or Scorpio, they will be making soft aspects (sextile and trine) to the station retrograde and direct degrees. While you may find that this Jupiter retrograde affects you more than most people, you are likely to find that the effects are not as strong as people experiencing the harder aspects (as detailed above). 

To a lesser degree, if you have natal planets or chart points that are aspecting the path that the Jupiter retrograde will take (but not including the station retrograde and direct degrees), you may experience some minor difficulties during the retrograde phase. These include 19° to 25° of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, and Libra and, to a lesser extent, Virgo, Pisces, Scorpio, and Taurus
