Jupiter is going retrograde in Pisces on 29th of July and will become direct again on 24th November. During this entire retrogression Jupiter will remain in Uttara Bhadrapada nakshatra and will also receive Saturn’s third aspect. Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra is ruled by Saturn.
Before I begin my analysis, let’s remember here we are exploring the retrogression of the planet of hope, optimism and prosperity in the natural house of spirituality, loss and expenditure. Uttara Bhadrapada is the nakshatra of spiritual growth, it does not have much to do with materialistic gains. Therefore the underlying energy of Jupiter’s retrogression in Uttara Bhadrapada nakshatra is about refinement of spirituality, re-discovering one’s inner faith, a very active subconscious mind and about letting go. It has nothing to do with gains from stock market, rather to be honest, there can be loss there. Pisces along with spirituality also shows expenditure, loss, going away and foreign places.

Whenever, a planet goes into retrograde mode, it becomes extra powerful due to its proximity to the earth and increase in Chestha Bal, i.e. it tries harder to get results. Now being powerful does not always mean being beneficial. It essentially means that in retrograde motion its natural significations are not manifested in a normal way, but it tries harder to manifest it and repeated trials can be there too. The same principle applies to Jupiter as well. However, being a naturally benefic planet, Jupiter always brings some positivity in some form or the other. This transit will be beneficial if placed in the right houses for you.
Now coming to some interesting thoughts that occurred to me while I was writing this article. Note one thing here, Jupiter is heavily under influence of Saturn and the outcome is so in sync with Saturn’s own retrogression back in Capricorn. Saturn there is giving us the final opportunity to realign our life and Karma to the righteous and disciplined path; put in sincere, hard work and get the rewards, no frills attached. Retrograde Jupiter being in Saturn’s nakshatra and aspected by Saturn in the highest of the moksha houses is asking us to review our innermost thoughts, to face our innermost fears, and let go of whatever is pulling us back, to find the right path for ourselves. Both are working in sync and both are nudging us in the same direction so that we find the true purpose of our life. How beautiful is that! However, it is a highly transformative energy and quite overwhelming too. The impact of this energy is going to curve a very different path for many of us when the retrogression gets over in November this year. These four months are very crucial, particularly the months of September and October. The question is are you ready for it?
Let us now find out what you can expect from this retrogression of Jupiter in general.
In general this retrogression along with Saturn’s aspect on it will cause delay in getting the positive results. There can be a dip in the overall happiness factor and optimism. Setbacks in finances, restrictions on foreign travel can be there, alternatively you may need to re-evaluate your plans for foreign travel and higher education in foreign universities. High expenditure will be there. This will be a phase to analyse where your money is going and take necessary measures to check the outflow. Some error in judgement can be there, lack of wisdom can prevail too. The period between 10th September and 2nd October is crucial in this regard, because then the planet of common sense and intelligence Mercury will also be retrograde along with Jupiter and Saturn. Overall this phase is good for spiritual awakening for the right kind of people. Your subconscious will be very active, your intuition will be high; some of you may even receive messages or solution to your problems in your dreams. You will be more inclined to spend in charity or on auspicious events in the family or on buying property. You will also get to know who is secretively working against you. Health issues can increase with chances of hospitalisation. Relationship with your father, with the husband or with your children needs care. In some cases their health will also need care.
