Jupiter Retrograde in Libra 2/6-6/9

Willpower Astrology

Hi everyone,

Just a quick note about Jupiter going retrograde at 23 degrees Libra last week on February 6. The retrograde motion of the planets is an optical caused by our relative orbit. They don’t really change direction, but our position during the course of the year makes them seem like they slow down and back up along the ecliptic. All of the planets (other than the Sun and Moon-and yes I know they’re not really planets, but that’s what they’re called alright?) go retrograde at some point during the year. Mercury, being the fastest, closest planet to the sun, goes retro at least three times a year. Venus and Mars, less often, go retro every 18 months to two years.

Jupiter is further out, and spends about a year in each sign. He entered the sign of Libra last September, and you can read more about what that means
