Hi all
Welcome to those of you who are subscribers as well as those who are reading my newsletter for the first time. If you missed the June 2022 News and Views you can read that here conta.cc/3y11yREAs I have said before, the events of the end of this month, will be dramatic especially as we move towards the end of July with Mars-Rahu-Uranus moving closer towards the exact conjunction on July 31-August 1. Beginning around the 25th we will especially feel the intensity of the events of the world, which include political, meteorological, rebellions and uprooting, which could be violent as we have seen lately, but not exclusively. I will have more concrete things to say in my webinar on Tuesday July 12 on What's Next: The Next Six Months. Scroll down if you wish to attend live or receive the recordings. I will write more about the conjunction in Part 2 of July 2022 News & Views.

In the meantime, the big news this month also includes Jupiter stationing retrograde on July 28th through November 23rd. Scroll down for more information, which will also include things that I have said before about Jupiter, but this time will include its position in tropical Aries-Pisces/sidereal Pisces. For those who use Jyotisa, the other news is that Saturn, which entered sidereal Aquarius on April 27 is now returning to finish up the job it began in sidereal Capricorn, which it retrogrades back into July 14, goes direct on October 23 and moves definitively into Aquarius on January 16, 2023. I will address that in the next News & Views.

Retrogradation. The phenomenon of retrogradation takes place when a planet appears to reduce the speed by which it travels, stops (stations retrograde) at a particular degree (July 28, 2022), and, as a result, “appears” to move backwards for a fixed amount of time, causing it to linger longer than usual in a portion of the zodiac. At some point in the retrograde cycle, as it moves “backwards” through the zodiac, the planet slows once more, stops once more (stations direct) at a particular degree (November 23, 2022), and then moves forward again. Midway through the retrograde cycle, the inferior planets (Mercury and Venus) form a conjunction with the Sun as they are closest to the earth, and the superior planets (Mars through Pluto) form an opposition with the Sun as they are closest to earth. If you have an opposition of the Sun with one of those superior planets they can only be retrograde during the opposition. Of course this is all from the standpoint of the observer on Earth. We can see above that the Sun-Jupiter opposition will be exact on September 26, 2022.

Planetary stations (the degree where the planet stations retrograde and direct) are among the most powerful degrees and the retrograde journey of the planets is always fascinating to watch. If you use the tropical zodiac, you will note that it travels between Aries and Pisces, and if you use the sidereal zodiac you will notice that Jupiter remains in Pisces. In any case Jupiter only travels ten degrees between the direct and planetary stations, and because it is already a slow-moving planet, unlike Mercury through Mars, we can see that at the time of this writing, Jupiter is already less than a degree from its planetary station above, so for all intents and purposes, Jupiter has already started to "slow up and station." We can interpret it as having already weakened in terms of its effect to increase, provide beneficence, and expansion. It always retrogrades for approximately 120 days and each year it advances one month. So this year it retrogrades from July 28 through November 23, and in 2023 will retrograde from September 4 through December 30.

The degrees above where it stations, and where it also has its opposition, are sensitive and will be affected by Jupiter especially if it is the degree of a planet, point, or angle in your chart. You can scroll down to the end to see what areas may be affected if you do have a planet, point, or angle within about one degree of these sensitive placements or the houses where it travels.

Jupiter Retrograde. Jupiter loves to expand and whenever it retrogrades, it is forced to slow down, which is against the nature of Jupiter. Often it means that you will not profit as much as you would during the eight months of the year when Jupiter is direct. If you can help it, normally it is not good to sell a house, car, etc., during Jupiter’s retrograde cycle, since you will earn less. However, it will be a good time to buy since prices normally go down. Again, this is general and we need to look at other mitigating factors. In fact, Jupiter retrograde could give a reversal of expansion which could even mean that inflation will actually go down rather than up, due to Jupiter slowing up, but it also means that returns on investments may be slower.

Jupiter retrograde is a time to rethink, slow down, or change something you have been working on that you may have done too quickly or think that you must get it finished because you want to move on to something else. Don’t worry if something gets delayed when Jupiter begins to retrograde since it does not mean things are finished, but that you have to go back to the drawing board. If you are up for a promotion, or job, or are working on writing a book, starting a company, or working on a project that will net you more money, things may just take slower than usual, but it might actually happen once Jupiter goes direct especially if you have done some reorganizing.

When Jupiter is retrograde be realistic and do not aim too high for something that you expect to happen immediately or for the time it retrogrades but take this time to plan for when Jupiter stations direct and you can aim high. Like all retrograde periods, this is the time to rethink and revise. You can plan ahead but do not take risks or be frustrated if things take a detour, or you do not get that opportunity you thought would happen, or that house sale you planned on does not sell, or that promotion you were hoping for did not yet get decided. It may still occur but during the retrograde is a time to review some of your plans, projects, and goals, since you might just have to take more time to complete something, or switch midstream. And that will be all right. Retrogrades are a great time to review and restructure. Look at the area it transits and planets it conjoins or aspects.

The areas of your chart that are affected by Jupiter’s “slow down” are where tropical Aries/Pisces and sidereal Pisces are located. If you have a planet, point, or angle in your chart in between Tropical 08° Aries 43' - 28° Pisces 47'/Sidereal 14° Pisces 38’ - 04° Pisces 43’ it means that it occurs three times (direct, retrograde, and direct) and reviewing or rearranging of plans will emphasize whatever that represents in the chart. If the stationary degree falls on a planet, point, or angle, it will only hit it twice, but will be intense because it will sit on the station for a while. Read below for the zodiac you use. Sidereal is what we use if you practice Jyotisa (Indian astrology). (I will talk more about Jupiter’s cycle in the world over the next six months in the webinar on Tuesday July 12 that you can read about if you scroll down.)
Read here if you use the Tropical Zodiac. If you have any planets, points, or angles between Tropical 08° Aries 43' - 28° Pisces 47' Jupiter will hit those degrees three times when Jupiter is direct, retrograde, and direct between May 5, 2022 and February 14, 2023, though you can add a few days before the first date and after the last date since planets have a one degree orb. If you have something on one of the stationary degrees, it will be there twice with the station being very potent.  Below are some keywords for the meaning of the planets, angles, and houses.

Sun.  vitality, individuality, ego; Moon.  emotions, habits, conditioning; Mercury.  communication, intelligence; Venus.  love, beauty, creativity; Mars.  physical energy, aggression, courage; Jupiter.  expansion, abundance; Saturn.  limitation, disciplined, fear; Uranus.  originality, independent, rebellious; Neptune.  spiritual, immaterial, imagination; Pluto.  intensity, power; North Node. power, place where you must strive; South Node. place where it is easy, habits; Ascendant. personality, destiny; IC. home, family, mother; Descendant. partnerships, contracts; Midheaven. career, father
Jupiter will retrograde in Aries from July 28 at 08° Aries 43' through October 28 and retrogrades through Pisces from October 28 through November 23, 2022 at 28° Pisces 47'. If you know in which houses those degrees lie, just look below at the areas of life that will be affected by this transit. If you use a whole sign house system, or are not sure what your ascendant is or where your houses lie, just count from your rising sign (Ascendant) or your sun sign to see in which houses Jupiter will fall. If you look at where Pisces is then what happened perhaps with that area of life between May 13 - July 28, 2021, and December 28, 2021 - May 10, 2022, when Jupiter was already in Pisces, will be revisited and resolved when Jupiter re-enters Pisces from October 28 through December 20, 2022 , especially after November 28 when it goes direct.

General descriptions for houses are as follows: 

Houses. 1. personality, body, appearance; 2. finances, possessions, values. 3. communication, siblings, short journeys, learning; 4. family, mother, home; 5. children, recreation, entertainment; 6. health, service, pets; 7. marriage, contracts, partnership; 8. business transactions, sexuality, life and death matters; 9. higher education, travel abroad, publishing, law; 10. profession, status, father; 11. gains, friendships, hopes, dreams; 12. compassion, spirituality, limitations, solitude.
Read here if you use the Sidereal Zodiac. If you have any planets, points, or angles between sidereal 14° Pisces 38’ - 04° Pisces 43’, Jupiter will hit those degrees three times when Jupiter is direct, retrograde, and direct between May 5, 2022 and February 14, 2023, though you can add a few days before the first date and after the last date since planets have a one degree orb. If you have something on one of the stationary degrees, it will be there twice with the station being very potent.  Below are some keywords for the meaning of the planets, angles, and houses.

Sun.  power, vigor; Moon. maternal, mind; Mars. strength, courage; Mercury. speech, learning; Jupiter.  knowledge, wealth; Venus. love, happiness; Saturn. sorrow, fear; Rāhu (North Node). intensity, compulsion; Ketu (South Node). extremes, spirituality; Lagna (Ascendant). destiny, vitality.
Jupiter will retrograde in Pisces from July 28 at sidereal 14° Pisces 38’ through November 23, 2022 at 04° Pisces 43’. If you know in which houses those degrees lie with the whole sign house system, or are not sure what your ascendant is or where your houses lie, just count from your rising sign (Ascendant) or your sun sign to see in which houses Jupiter will fall. If you look at what Jupiter has affected after it entered Pisces on April 13, 2022 then you might have an idea as to what is being affected.
