Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You are most likely going to feel the effects of Jupiter moving backward in the area of career. You may find yourself unemployed or that your hours at work are cut back.
It also may be a bit harder for you to get paid than usual and by mid-April, you may be getting awfully sick of tightening your belt to make ends meet. Jupiter going backward in the sky may also have the effect of giving you a big case of “what’s the point.”
It is okay to sit back, relax, and silence your inner critic. Many people are going to find it hard to reach any of their career aspirations this year thanks to Jupiter retrograde.
On the upside, this backward Jupiter will definitely give you more time to spend with family. Leos are often a bit overweight and Jupiter retrograde can be beneficial in helping this self-indulgent sign lose weight.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
The Jupiter retrograde is likely to cause some problems having to do with a divorce or legal separation of some kind that has been in the works for quite some time now. The focus will be on wrapping up this matter as neatly as possible. This will probably be a time when you feel a bit bitter or stingy emotionally.
You will not expect a lot from others and they will not be expecting a lot from you, not because they dislike you but because they are giving you some space to heal. More than most signs, you need to get away every now and then and spend time in the company of relatives and friends who love you.
Jupiter may prohibit long distance travel, as some of your spending money may have been cut back. You may also find yourself working a little more than usual. It is a good idea to try and shine at your job and forget your personal life for now as that will be your most productive course of action.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Jupiter moving backward in the sky is going to give you less available cash to play with, but the good news is that other planets in the sign of Cancer are going to lend you a great deal of emotional support from friends and family.
However, the world may seem a little stingier to you in other ways. You may find that there are fewer opportunities to socialize or that some friends are working way too hard just to make ends meet and therefore cannot spend that quality time with you that you always crave so badly.
Your biggest challenge will likely be with employment. If you are freelance, it may seem harder to make a pet project go. If you are employed with a corporation or company, you may actually find yourself laid back or working fewer hours because of cutbacks. This is why it is best for you to sit back and relax during this retrograde and try to take advantage of the peace and quiet it will bring into your life.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
You may face some financial losses while Jupiter goes backward in the sky this spring. It could be that a property becomes devalued or is legally disputed at some time. If you owe money, this could be a difficult time for you especially if you have not been able to pay your debts on time.
Jupiter retrograde is notorious for provoking rising interest rates. You may go through a bit of a cash crunch and need to take a second job or ask for more hours.
Many Scorpios are also at risk of losing a job or being laid off, but that is also true of most signs. Your focus over the next few months will be spending time with family rather than career or money because you will feel stalled when it comes to moving forward.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
When Jupiter goes retrograde in the sky, many Archers feel grounded. This is not the time when you will get that long vacation that you have always craved. Short day trips are still within the realm of possibility, but you will not have the cash to spend on trains, planes, and hotels.
You may also have to curb your spending when it comes to all kinds of little luxuries such as expensive clothing and going to restaurants or movies. Your cash flow may not be as smooth as usual or you may find that projects or paychecks are stalled or stopped altogether.
Entertaining at home is a good idea if you want to have fun, but still, save money. The upside is that weight loss and fitness goals are easier for your sign to reach when Jupiter moves backward through the sky so March 15th is a great day to start a weight loss program.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
If you are employed, you may actually find yourself laid off or working fewer hours because of cutbacks. Some of you maybe already searching for a job and the next five months will not be easy as the planets do not favor new endeavors.
This is why it is best for you to sit back and relax during this retrograde and try to take advantage of the peace and quiet it will bring into your life.
The Jupiter retrograde is likely to cause some problems to do with a divorce or legal separation of some kind. The focus will be on wrapping up this matter as neatly as possible throughout the next 2 months.
This will probably be a time when you feel a bit bitter. You may feel that friends or relatives have let you down, but remember it is because they are busy and feeling the financial stress as well.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Jupiter is in your sign when it moves backward and you will be hit very hard by the negative financial news. Your biggest challenge will likely be with employment.
If you are employed with a corporation or company you may fund working fewer hours because of cutbacks. It may be difficult to find a second high paying job as the planets are just not that favorable to your sign.
This is why it is best for you to sit back and enjoy the free time that will be yours whether you want it or not this spring. You also may have some bad news to do with credit or property and there may very little you can do about. If a divorce or separation is in the wind, the entire matter will probably be wrapped up by May.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You may face some financial losses while Jupiter goes retrograde in your fellow water sign of Cancer this month. It could be that your property becomes worthless or that you are forced to pay more interest on a mortgage or a debt.
You could also find out that a loan can never be repaid and be forced Jupiter retrograde can also provoke a divorce or loss of a significant relationship.
You need to grin and bear it until May and, in essence, do what it takes to make sure that you can make ends meet. On the positive side of things, the setbacks caused by a backward moving Jupiter will help simplify and organize your life.
You will also have more quality time to spend with family and the time to envision your future in a more creative way so that you really love what you do for a living and can get rich as well.
