Jupiter Gone Retrograde


You may have felt it.  Jupiter went retrograde back on December 8th.  It’s maybe why you’re withdrawing more than usual this holiday season.  When Jupiter turns backward, it’s time for active things to slow.  It’s time to look inward, to re-examine old philosophies, to grow from recent wisdom.  When Jupiter goes retrograde in Leo, that hot fiery ego becomes the focus of our introspection.  If lucky, we catch a glimpse of our true selves, the ones we’ve tucked away for no one else to see.

Myself:  I’ve hardly left the house the past few weeks.  I’m adapting a novel from a screenplay I wrote a few years back.  Turns out, a novel is so much more cinematic.  A novel’s narration allows for inward introspection, and much of my personal retrograde focus is appearing in the emotional lives of my characters.  (It’s hard to explain and probably foolish to try.  But that’s my inward journey.)  Jupiter goes direct again April 8th.  By then, I hope to complete a draft of this novel. Before that, Mercury goes retrograde on January 21st for three weeks.  At that point, things might come to a downright halt.


  1. I read your wonderful insight in this post and did smile to myself. For it seems to me that only those who are aware enough and up for the journey of growth through introspection truly resonate with all the gifts and magic that the universe bestows upon our being. And better souls are we for that process, once we understand and chose to embrace instead of resisting and fighting such all consuming forces. Therein I suspect you won’t grind to a complete halt. That said, love your blog, your clarity and insightfulness, very big thank you for sharing such wisdom, sincere regards, Barry
