Every spring begins a series of planet retrogrades in the heavens above, and this spring is no different. Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter have begun their backspin around the almighty Sun, while Venus, and soon Mercury, follow suit.
On Tuesday, December 3, Jupiter will exit the sign of Sagittarius and ingress the sign of Capricorn.
After a months-long retrograde that led us to reconsider the viability of our biggest dreams and aspirations, Jupiter, the planet of luck and fortune, stations direct in the sign of Sagittarius restoring momentum.
The planet Jupiter is retrograde now through August 2019, asking each of us to curb our enthusiasm when it comes to those areas of life where we seek to stretch and grow. Consider this a giant pause as momentum slows and strategies are revisited.
Ring the alarm - Jupiter leaves Scorpio for Sagittarius this week!
Jupiter transits last for about a year, and we have been feeling its movement through the sign of the Scorpion since last October. As I said in this blog post, Jupiter’s exit comes with the parting gift of rebirth. We have been laboring through the year folks, purging, shedding, releasing, and pruning, all for the sake of being born anew.
Venus dips back in to the sign of Libra this week, as we approach All Hallows Eve on Wednesday, October 31. Relationship matters will continue to be under review, as we each work a bit harder to identify our true relationship needs and values. Financial affairs are also up for consideration, as we assess what gives us a sense of security.
The reason why we are all being poked, prodded, tested and triggered, is because we are all giving birth to something new – a new career, a new relationship, a new life, a new you. We are laboring through, friends. Where there is pain, there will be light.

“Jupiter in Scorpio will drudge up the muck that resides beneath the surface of who we are, and in a big way. Skeletons in closets will be revealed. Lies will be unearthed. Wounds will be triggered. This is a necessary process that Scorpio does well. What follows will be a grand release that helps us to heal and evolve.”
I wrote this almost a year ago. The week we just had is a testament to the above truth.
