Jupiter Retrograde

Jupiter Retrograde

In a general sense, at first glance, Jupiter sounds like an alright planet. The Greater Benefic, that implies it’s...well, beneficial, right? Kind of. This planet rules higher truths, wisdom, law, teaching, expansion, and risk taking. Cast in this “bringer of abundance” light- yeah, I don’t know, don’t ask me to explain woo-speak. I can translate it but I don’t get it, either. Jupiter may seem a pretty great planetary influence both in a natal chart and in transit. Jupiter is a very long game kinda player: spending roughly a year and a half in each sign. So, give or take, about 12 years to go full circle. Thing is, it depends on what sign it’s hanging out in and how that interacts with the rest of things. For instance, if I tell you that Jupiter is “in its fall” in Capricorn: jeez, that sounds bad, doesn’t it? You have big dreams, plans for expansion meets a Saturn ruled sign renowned for plotting, planning, and discipline. Do the math. Astrology is like math, psychology, astronomy and psychology had an orgy, so yes, you have to. No one's taken it on Maury, yet.

Ruling both Sagittarius and the 9th House in astrology, you might imagine Jupiter is a bit of a flaky, pretentious douche. It’s also exalted in Cancer, so you might want to add emotional to the list. So, imagine Jupiter, sitting there, weeping as it tries to explain existentialism to you but then, deciding you’re too stupid to understand and wandering off.

The Retrograde

Jupiter’s retrograde transit happens right around every 13 months. It will have about 3 months leading up to the retrograde station itself- known colloquially as the “Shadow”. Then, it stations retrograde for about 4 months, 2 days. After that, 3 months of still feeling the impact a bit here and there. Those times before and after are actually when the planet is “stationing”. That is, it's “going in” and “going out” of retrograde station itself.

To guild the turd a bit, it shows you where your excess and greed might be a little out of control. It can also illuminate those areas where you’re a bit less the doer than you ought to be. That said, it will also point out where you have been leaping before you look. It does so by stalling out some awesome shit you were working on, or having it implode in your face. In respect to “a little out of control”, you get to see how your delivery habit has over drafted the crap out of you. Things like that. Like all retrograde cycles, this is cast as “external challenges to help aid in beautiful opportunities for inner growth” which, when translated: you’re going to find out where you need to get your shit together. Where excess might be an issue or what you might be doing that completely derailed your start up, project, budget or whatever. As in, everything expansive blows up in your face or absolutely crawls and hits a wall.

This gives you the opportunity to reflect on quite a bit, but may also lead to some unhealthy coping mechanisms.

Solar Activity
Solar activity reached moderate levels due a M1.3/1n parallel ribbon flare associated with an approximately 6 degree long filament eruption from the vicinity of spotless Region 3016 (S18W47). Radio activity was also detected in association with this flare, to include a Type II sweep at 25/1817 UTC with estimated velocity of 994 km/s, a Type IV sweep at 25/1824 UTC, and a 10.7cm Tenflare burst of 160 sfu at 25/1816 UTC. GOES SUVI imagery indicated a likely CME as an EUV wave, coronal dimming, and a post-flare loop arcade were observed. The associated CME was first clearly confirmed at 25/1848 UTC with a pronounced signature departing to the southwest. Although the bulk of the ejecta had a southwest vector, we await additional coronagraph imagery to properly conduct analyses.
Solar Wind
Solar wind parameters were indicative of a mildly disturbed and enhanced IMF in a slow solar wind regime. Total IMF strength was 2-3 nT until about 25/0200 UTC, when it increased to a peak of 9 nT at 25/0859 UTC, before it slowly declined. The Bz component underwent a few short southward deviations, but was otherwise northward directed or weak southward to neutral in orientation. Solar wind speed varied mainly from 350-400 km/s. The phi angle was predominantly positive.
Energetic Particle
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux was normal to moderate and the greater than 10 MeV proton flux remained at background.
