One of the most important planets from the astrological point of view is Jupiter. This large planet is symbolic of expansion. If its course in the skies is favorable it can be an indicator of both worldly and spiritual growth. Jupiter now goes direct in the celestial sky after a period of retrograde motion.
From 7th January this year Jupiter had been going retrograde in the sign of Leo (Vedic or sidereal astrology). Retrograde motion is when a planet appears to be moving backwards as opposed to its regular straight course as observed from earth. Remember that these retrograde planets don’t really move backwards, its just that our planet earth moves faster between them and the sun as we see that planet from a distance. When planets go retrograde the attributes that they represent seem to be slowing down or backtracking in several areas of life. In the case of Jupiter being retrograde from 7 Jan 2016 most of us might have experienced a general slowing in our spiritual activities as well as our business and career plans. Well the good news is the 9 of May 2016, Jupiter is coming back on its regular celestial course in all our astrological charts. This is what it can mean for all of us in general:
- Better business growth
- Financial luck improves
- Career progress is back on track
- Spiritual work enhances
- Overall healing and inner peace amplifies
