Guess who's joining the retro bandwagon? (Cues Train's "Drops of Jupiter"). Let me guess... you don't have the strength to deal with yet another retrograde cycle? Take a deep breath, as I am about to reveal how Jupiter retrograde 2019 might affect you, according to your zodiac sign, which for the record, I don't see this retrograde cycle being as bad you think. Truth is, the world is completely traumatized by the term "retrograde," given its notorious reputation. However, in the end, retrograde cycles can actually turn out to be quite positive. For instance, have you ever revisited something and suddenly realized where you'd gone wrong?
It's not about being right, wrong, or self-critical, it's about the opportunity. Retrograde cycles provide us with an opportunity to reflect, re-evaluate, and reassess any given situation. I mean, it's no wonder our exes suddenly come out of the woodwork during Mercury retrograde, right? I believe that everything happens for a reason, and in the case of these blast-from-the-past experiences, we are given yet another chance to re-hash a situation. Now, given that Mercury rules all things related to communication, these retrograde cycles typically spark stress and confusion, as it stifles messaging, and technology... but that is certainly not the case for lucky Jupiter.
In astrology, Jupiter is the planet of luck and abundance. Thus, wherever Jupiter is located on your birth chart determines where you naturally thrive. The dark side of Jupiter, however, lies in its overly-optimistic personality, and over-indulgent ways, which means, this is definitely something we need to be wary of throughout this retrograde cycle. In case you're wondering, the planet of expansion will station retrograde in Sagittarius on April 10 until Aug. 11, which in turn will inspire us to look inward throughout our path to self-discovery. Anyhoo, and on that note, here's how Jupiter retrograde might affect you, as per your zodiac sign:
