I know I have been telling you that the big invisible guys, Neptune, Pluto, Uranus and the asteroid Juno are finally going direct and all will be out of retrograde around the beginning of the year. I didn't lie - don't come after me with pitchforks. However, I may have sort of let's say - neglected to tell you about Jupiter. Yes, Jupiter is heading backwards - well it is already there - yes Jupiter will be retrograded in Cancer until mid March 2014.
But wait there is good news. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and moving up and out and forward - constant growth and movement. However, we are headed into the time when we should be going inwards. The days are getting shorter, on December 21 we will experience the shortest, darkest day of the year. You know it is insane that we race around in November and December, shopping and doing - we should be coming in from the cold and nesting not racing to Toys R U at 1 in the morning!
Since Jupiter is in the sign of Cancer, of home and hearth what better time for it to be in retrograde? It is telling us to slow down, assess where we need to work out any issues at home. Appreciate the beauty of a roaring firing and maybe making gifts for people instead of buying something. Spend some time learning how to be inwardly expansive as the days go away and be reading to burst forth in spring. How better to follow the pattern of the seasons. Let Jupiter be your guide on your inward journey.
